No sound hardware found


If you are using the onboard sound driver, make sure you have the latest drivers and software. Same goes if you are using an add-on expansion board sound card.

For the onboard sound card, you will need Realtek ALC3861 Audio Driver installed. You can download this driver directly from Dell's web site by visiting Dell.com and clicking on support.

To make sure they know what model computer you have, enter your computers service tag number. If your machine was built with an OEM addon card, it will list those drivers too!

Type into google "Sound card driver download"
Down load the best driver for your sound card and install it.
You may need to re-start your computer at this point.
Done.

MY DEL DESKTOP 531 THE DISK CLEANUP HAS NOT BEEN WORKI NG & MY BACK UP HAS NOT BEN WORKING AS I CAN NOT DELETE OR KNOW WHAT TO DELETE BUT I CAN'T DO THAT NOW


Wow! Where to start? First of all if the computer has Windows XP loaded on it that is no longer supported by Microsoft. If you want to re-install an OS (operating system software) I would suggest Windows 7.

No sound on my dell 8400


Simply go to 'Start -> Control Panel -> Administrative tools -> Computer management -> Device manager'. Now find here 'Sound, video and game controllers', right-click on your sound device and select 'Properties'.

Now click 'Driver' tab and check that what driver is currently installed and it is working properly or not...

Update the audio driver now still the device says it is working properly because sometime the driver might be causing this problem.

Don't forget to restart you laptop after successfully installed new driver.

If any anonymous error/problem occurs in troubleshooting, get reliable support for Your laptop at http://www.vtechsquad.com/dell-support/

Hey, um, I have a Dell Demension 3000 and I want to replace the sound card on it. I have a couple of questions: 1. Can I just get any sound card? 2. I know I install it in the PCI slot, but where is that...


1. Almost all sound cards are standardized, and there are drivers for all major operating systems (windows, mac, and linux). After installing the card, you will need to install the correct driver to make it work, (on a pc, it is likely the driver will be installed automatically.

2. PCI slots look like this - http://www.google.com/search?q=pci+slot&um=1&ie=UTF-8&tbm=isch&source=og&sa=N&hl=en&tab=wi&biw=1440&bih=802 - They are all on the motherboard, and a few of them will already be in use. Your monitor cable port is part of a card in a pci slot and your network ports are part of a card connected to a pci slot.

3. All your software settings are stored on your hard drive, if you don't swap out the harddrive, then none of your settings will be lost.

Yes you should be able to fix this. First do you have external speakers for this computer or is it internal? Next has this worked before and stopped working?

Dell Dimension 2200


Some basic questions first: -Are you using the built-in sound card and are your speakers plugged into the green socket? -Did you plug your speakers into another computer to see if they work, if you didn?t how did you test them? -Have you checked the Sounds and audio devices in the control panel? Go to Start, Control Panel, and open Sounds and Audio Devices. Make sure the volume is up and the mute box IS NOT checked. If you?re using Windows XP Click on the Speaker Volume button and make sure the left and right speaker volumes are up. -What program are you trying to use to test the sound volume? Let us know if this solves your problem or if you need some more assistance.
