Question about Dell A215 Computer Speakers
Well, I checked and double checked but I can't seem to find the problem. I made sure all the cables and wires were plugged in properly, including the power source and then connection to the computer. However, my Dell Dimension Desktop doesnt seem to have a jack for the speakers in the back of the tower, only in the front, next to the USB ports, which is where I plugged it in. The problem is, when I go to Control Panel > Sounds, Speech, and Audio Devices > Sounds and Audio Devices > Volume, it shows a message saying that there is "No Audio Device". What could possibly be wrong?
No drivers for your soundcard, this is a computer issue not a speaker issue, contact dell, if you can understand a word they say, ask them "I have Dimension (model number here), I need to know how to install my sound drivers", if you dont know how to do this.

In answer to snowbunny's question, goto: start -> control panel -> sound and audio devices when the little box pops up, make sure that you have the box checked off that says "place volume icon in the taskbar" and you should be fine. As for glo92's problem: goto "sound and audio devices" like above, and make sure that within the "Audio" and "Voice" tabs that the voice/sound playback are not greyed out and have some kind of card assigned to it. If it's greyed out then you need to install new drivers and properly assign them to the playback devices.

My system worked fine for a long time, then suddenly didn't any more. I went to Control Panel, clicked on Sounds and Audio Devices, then clicked on the Audio tab -- found there that the default devices were set to "Modem #0 Line ..." -- changed this to the other option: "Realtek HD Audio..." for both Sound playback and Sound recording. Then, went to the Voice tab and did the same thing. It works fine now!

When I first got my Dell Inspiron 530 I connected everything up and plugged my sound plug into various sockets on the back of the tower untill I found one that worked.
But I had problems: restore refused to work.
So I reinstalled Vista choosing the "mirror" option. Everything was okay except I had no sound.
I looked in the Dell Owner's manual and saw that I had the speakers plugged into the microphone socket. Yes I got sound from the microphone socket!
Furthermore, when I right clicked on Realtek HD Audio manager and left clicked "audio devices" it said "Realtek HIgh Definition speakers not plugged in".
Looking in the Dell Owner's manual I saw that speakers should be plugged into socket 6, front L/R line-out connector.
I plugged the speakers into this socket and guess what - I got sound!
Note: I am using old Acer speakers, not Dell Realtek HD speakers.

Dell would not help me over the phone - and I tried live chat - they said I bought it at Best Buy, take it back to the store. Best Buy they tested it our with their speakers - couldn't get sound either. They said it was a problem with the hard drive, replaced it, and now I have sound. So my only solution was to tak eit back where I bought it,
