Dell Dimension 4600 Sound Board doesn't work - Dell Computers & Internet

    I sure appreciate the effort. Nothing showed up, making me think I may need to replace my sound board. Don't know how expensive that would be. Maybe a new computer would be about the same cost. I'm pretty clueless about hardware.

Let’s check the sound card on your PC. Go to "Device Manager" and look if any yellow or red alerts are being displayed next to “Sound, video and game controllers”. To access the "Device Manager" go to the 'Control Panel", "Administrative Tools", "Computer Management" and select "Device Manager" located in the left side column. If there is an error or alert on a device, double click on the device and it will tell what the problem is, i.e.… drivers not installed, cannot start this device, etc…

No sound from my dimension 4600


If you have tried reloading the drivers for the onboard sound. You might need to check your settings on the computer. If this doesnt help your quickest way is to go out and buy a cheap sound card and install it.

Best of luck and have a happy and safe 4th of July!

What kind of sound card do I need? I can't get any


The dimension 4600 has an integrated sound card, but if that is not working and a driver update does not correct the issue, then any sound card that used a PCI interface will work with that system.

I have a Dell Dimension 4600, will a PCI Express sound card work in place of the original Sound Blaster 5.1 sound card


Well, the short answer to your question is "No, it won't work". The Dell Dimension 4600 does not have any PCI Express slots in it, therefore you can't install it, and therefore it won't work. But, if you installed a PCI sound card, it would work. The BIOS would recognize the add-on sound card, disable the onboard sound, and your sound will start going through the expansion card instead. Hope this helps.

Dell Dimension 4600 creative sound blaster card


It sounds like you may have broken your sound card. I had the same problem when I tried to digitise my old 4-track recordings. 
I tried the broken card in another PC, found that it was not working, so I went out and bought a new sound card.

Dell dimension 4600 microphone problem


If this is a clean install (formatted drive and reinstalled) then the likelihood of it being a driver issue is greatly reduced. Did you download the drivers from Dell?
Secondly, the fact that the audio works makes me think it is a hardware issue. Since audio and the mic are connected in the device manager, the easiest solution might be to replace the sound with a PCI soundcard. They are fairly inexpensive, and they will generally include the drivers with the disk.
