I am troubleshooting a dell Optiplex Gx 270 desktop computer that initially had a yellow question mark in the device manager for the Multimedia audio contrroller and still produces no audio. I dowloaded...


Obvious things - make sure that your speakers are connected - desktops don't generally have internal speakers - and make sure the volume is turned on/up or is not muted. Go to settings>Control Panel>sounds/audio devices.

If all looks ok, go back into device manager and right click the audio controller and delete it. Then reboot the computer. It will automatically reinstall on reboot.
