No sound on our computer


For the Dell Dimension 4550 there's a drivers list, see next page:

The drivers list is for the Operating System XP.
Detect the hardware, have a look in the hardware manager.
Soundcard and cd/dvd drive need a firmware driver to get it functional.
Download the matching driver for your hardware.

When not knowing what driver to install, first download all audio and
cd/dvd drivers to a location on the computer, e.g. C:\DRIVERS .
After the download, update drivers in the hardware manager with the listing in the DRIVERS map.

When needing more help, just add a comment in this thread.

Problems with drivers I think

Okay, I'm going to need some more information. Could you please go into Device Manager (to do this, press Start, Run, type devmgmt.msc, press Enter)

then go into the CD/DVD Section. Are there any yellow exclamation marks on the devices in that section, namely, on your CD/DVD drive?

If so, double click it, and post the error code here.
For example, "Error code 37"

In fact, CD/DVD drives not reading is a fairly common problem. Here is the fix if your problem is the same (known as the UpperFilters/LowerFilters fix)

You will need to edit the REGISTRY. If you are not comfortable doing this, click the "Fix It" button which will probably do it automatically.

If that didn't fix your problem, try right clicking your drive in device manager -> Update Drivers and following those steps, or going to the Manufacturers website and getting the latest CD/DVD drivers or firmware, if they exist.

CAREFUL with updating firmware, make sure you select the correct model!

If this didn't help, let us know what happened, and we'll take it from there.
