Question about Dell Dimension 2400 PC Desktop

Speakers Dont Work

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

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?

No playing sound

Hello, I only try a few tricks on my computer, but they may help you. Sometimes the computer loses track of where the devices are plugged in.

It may help to unplug the speakers if they are external and then shut down the computer. Then plug them back in and hope the Device Manager identifies the speakers as a new hardware addition.

Many computers will then establish a path internally for making the speakers work.

Now if you have internal speakers, the speakers may have become isolated or lost from the startup routine. Get in the Device Manager and see what selections are checked off. Sometimes they use an Icon in the submenu and this shows which pieces of Hardware your computer knows about. Sometimes it is as simple as activating an Icon to change the duties of the hardware. Remember to use the APPLY button if provided.

Next, your Driver may have been corrupted. Depending on the Browser you are using, you may have a Backup Driver in the unused Memory which on most computers is in the D drive. You would use the ADD/DELETE program function to put that Driver back into the "C" drive of the computer as a normal running program.

You still may have to Download a Driver from the Manufactuer to replace a missing or corrupted Driver. Go to your Manufactuers site, or the Operating programs site and look for what you need.

I hope I have helped. Please rate my info. I am not a computer expert and there certainly may be better ideas for you. But I have had the same defects and bailed myself out by using the ideas I shared.

Last night, 4-24-20ll (in the middle of the night) I was watching a video and suddenly there was a crackling noise like static. Then the sound disappeared completely and never came back.

I think a harsh sound damaged the speaker. This is usually caused by software signed to enhance audio performance, such as VLC (which has high sound volume), Breakaway (a so sound-enhancing software, etc. First of all, try uninstalling such programs, or if you have not installed such programs, try restarting your computer several times. Secondly, test other speakers (external) with your computer to see if the problem is from your previous speakers. Hope this helped.

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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 Necessar
  • 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."
  • 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
  • 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.
  • 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."
  • 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.
  • Restart your computer. Reinstall the deleted drivers using the Driver and Application Recovery CDs that came with your Windows XP system.
  • 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.
