Question about Dell Dimension 2400 PC Desktop

3 Answers

Sound Problems Okay, one night my mom was deleting programs off the computer. The next day there was no sound comin out of the speakers. So i was wondering if there was a program that actually made you hear the sound. But we hooked up some Bose speakers to see if it was the speakers that were bad. But those didn't work either. I've gone into the control panel to see if they speakers even resigstered. And it says "No Sound Device". Please Help. Thanks, Matt

To make it easy for you this is the default audio driver for Dimension 2400 systems. Click on this link ---> http://support.dell.com/support/topics/global.aspx/support/downloads/en/downloads_splash?c=us&l=en&s=gen&~mode=popup&file=122481
this would install your integrated audio driver for your system.
Let me know if this resolved this issue.

SOURCE: Speakers Dont Work

Hi Matt, 
You might want to do these following steps.
1. Right click my computer and go to manage 2. Click on Device manager on the left side of the window 3. Look for Sound, Video and Game Controllers and you should be seeing at least a driver for your audio. It might be a SoundMax or Realtek depending on the type of system.  If it doesn't show, you may need to install them. What is the brand of your computer and its model?

I INSTALL THE SOFTWARE AND STILL HAVE PROBLEMS WITH MY COMPUTER I HAVE NO SOUND. PLEASE HELP ME.


There are a number of different reasons why your computer may no longer give sound. If you have this problem, read on to learn how to diagnose the problem and resolve your PC's loss of sound.
Check the Speaker Connections and Volume Control Settings
  1. Verify that the lack of sound is not due to faulty speaker connections. A simple way to test it is to substitute the speaker connection with headphones and see if you get any sound
  2. Open the volume control window by clicking your "Start" button and then "All Programs." Click "Accessories," then "Entertainment," then "Volume Control." Alternatively, just click on the speaker icon that's in your System Tray.
  3. Check the volume and mute settings. If any of the mute check boxes have been checked, uncheck them. If this doesn't work, read on.

Perform a System Restore If Necessary
  1. If the sound has been audible from your computer's speakers and is suddenly lost, you may need to perform a System Restore. Click on the " Start" button and then "All Programs."
  2. Click on "Accessories," then "System Tools," then "System Restore."
  3. Complete the System Restore Wizard. If this doesn't work, read on.

Delete and Reinstall the Original Sound Drivers
  1. Deleting and reinstalling your sound driver may resolve the problem. Your sound driver may have been corrupted or may be missing. The result of this is that the restore utility menu won't be available. For Windows XP, follow these steps.
  2. Click on your "Start" button. Click on "Control Panel" and then "System." Next, click on "Hardware," then "Device Manager, then "Sound, Video and Game Controllers."
  3. Click on a sound device named in the Device Manager, and then press the Delete key on the keyboard. Click "OK" in the window that appears. Remove all the listed sound devices i this way EXCEPT Audio Codec and Legacy Audio Drivers.
  4. Restart your computer. Reinstall the deleted drivers using the Driver and Application Recovery CDs that came with your Windows XP system.
  5. Visit your computer manufacturer's official website. Check for any updated sound driver software for your sound card. If any, download them along with the installation instructions.
I hope this information will be helpful. Thank you for using FixYa!

I'm not getting any sound. Speakers are plugged in but no sound. Was working a few days ago. It's as if the sound programing has been deleted.


Could you specify if it's a computer you're plugging into or a device like an ipod or stereo? If the computer isn't giving you any sound, try the speakers with an ipod or something and then you can narrow down the problem to your sound settings / sound card...

CD/DVD and Sound problem


Did your computer come with a restore disc? I find that a crupt c:file can reek havoc on any computer. If you do have a restore program disc. All c;files MUST BE SAVED TO A data DVD-RW discs that will hold all your files. Windows is notorious of self deleting start up files.

The first thing I would check is the speaker / headphone jack. These input jacks fail all the time and can effet your internal speakers. THIS SOUNDS LIKE THE PROBLEM>

I don't know if you manually erase those drivers, but I recommend you reinstall the drivers with the setup option, then uninstall them, again reinstall them ans see if work, or depending the OS if is Xp or Vista, ?
