Go to Start -> Control Panel -> Sounds and Audio Devices (or whatever your OS has in Control Panel for sound). It should show in the top of the window the device it's using to create sound. From the tabs at the top, look for the Audio tab. That shows the default device used to make sounds. There is a drop-down selection. Click that to make sure you have the right device. If you've added a sound card (or it came with one), it may be conflicting with the built-in sound (if it has it). I know, lots of if's..... If that selection is greyed out, then you probably have a sound device or driver problem. Again, if there's a card installed, reboot and bring up the BIOS settings and disable the on-board sound. It's buried in the BIOS settings. Lastly, try looking at HP's web site for drivers for the sound and reinstall them.

I am trying to find a video card for my dell dimension 8300 that will run the new sims 3 game. john


Hi,
you need to view the games minimum requirements. this will be cpu speed. amount of physical memory ( RAM ) and graphics card requirements. some games also require graphics accelerators. Another thing to take into consideration:- Direct X versions supported By The graphics Card. And whether your PC is compatable with the card. i.e AGP/PCI-e.

Thankyou For Using Fixya.

On startup my dell 8300 only has a black screen no splash screen cannot start in safe mode diagnostic lights abc are green d is amber your Black screen Problem


If you are not getting any Video at all, No Dell SPlash screen, nothing, then I'd look at a video card as the 1st point of Failure.

If you Get a Dell Splash screen, but nothing afterward, then the hard drive is suspect
