Question about Dell Dimension 2400 PC Desktop

Audio Devices All of my audio is gone. Everything. I've done everything, it is almost like there was never audio to begin with. there is no sound card detected and there is no way for me to scan for it. My PC is telling me that there are no audio devices installed. But when I go to Add/Remove hardware it says they are all working properly.

Ok... its there, but has been disable. you will have to install the drivers again. That's whats missing. Go 2 Add-Remove programs and un-install it. Then put your disk for your computer (drives only) back in and let the computer install all over again. If you do not have a disk that saids: "Drives", try putting your speakers into the computer...rebooting and see if it detects 'new hardware' and if so, you're in business!! It will automatically install the drivers for you...
You can also go the 'dell' website' search for "sound" and see if they have the drivers for you in their 'download' tab.
let me know what happens, weather good or bad.. i won't mind the criticism!
thns... stay bless!!

Sound card


As Acqwerty says, check your audio volume first, put the volume on everything up. Do you have an onboard or seperate sound card? If its onboard you have to make sure its enabled, this is done in the control panel, sound/audio devices. If its a card you put it, check the drivers, and make sure there are no other cards running on the same port as your soundcard, also done in control panel.

I have no sound in my PC


BrendanG21, I had the same problem this morning. My sound actually quit in the middle of listening to music. Simply restart your computer (it may take a couple tries). If it's saying you have no audio device installed, but everything looks normal when you go into device manager, it's probably the same problem and this should work.

Running Windows XP
Dell B130 laptop
Sound devices listed under my device manager:
Audio Codecs
Legacy Audio Drivers
Legacy Video Capture Devices

Somehow you must have either deleted you sound drivers or disabled them. you can start by looking in you control panel-sytem-hardware-device manager on the list should be something about multimedia audio controllers if there is a yellow arrow next to that then you must have removed the drivers and thus will need to download them from the manufacturers web site.

Tascam midi and audio conflict error


Hi,
First try turning off the onboard audio device using the BIOS interface. Try pressing f4, f2 or delete key rapidly at the flash screen beginning when you first turn on the computer. Look around in the bios (usually in "integrated periperals" area) and disable any onboard audio options that you see.
-In windows XP you can go to Control panel - Sound Devices and change the "map through" feature, select your default device, and run a hardware test simulation with a microphone for each device. Nice setup btw.

Hi, Firstly if your sound card is not detected then either it needs to be re-seated or it has failed. Is the sound you have an actual card plugged into your motherboard or is it what we call "on board" so actually built in to the motherboard. If it is then you have a problem.

If it is an actual card you can open the box, make sure you will not be voiding any warranty you may have on the machine, then you can carefully unscrew the screw holding the sound card firm and pull the card from it's connectors quite firmly. So long as you don't twist or bend it you will not damage it.

Repeat the actions only in reverse to re-seat the card and screw back in firmly. ( If this does not get Windows XP to detect the card you could try another connector slot if you have one.)

Ok now to the drivers, once the card is detected WinXP will ask for the drivers if it does have them. You can follow the installation wizard and point to where you will have placed the downloaded files.

Ok downloading, can you tell me what the sound card is and then I should be able to tell you where you can download them from?

Let me know
