If the sound card is still physically in the machine, go into device manager, right click on any component and select scan for hardware changes.

How do you attach the speaker system on a dell dimension c521.


dheiyzhie_0.jpg

The green port on the back of your computer is for small speakers, this is the one mostly used. If you have subwoofer connect it to the orange port. The black port is used if you have surround speakers. The white port is for side surround speaker.
This is the integrated or built in sound card. If you have add on sound card then you need to use that instead. You can get the manual of your computer by clicking on this link.

I think I accidentally deleted the mic software because there's no sound. how can I re-istall it back? comp is Dell Latitude D600


We need more information to help you.

What operating system are you running?

What exactly did you delete when you said you "think" you deleted the software"?

Are you saying you deleted the sound card device driver software using the Windows device manager or did you remove some other audio application?

I will try and help anyway with minimal information so far.

If you're running windows XP (vista is similar) I would check if the driver software for the sound card is still intact. The microphone itself has no "software" exactly. It's just connected to the Internal sound card and the sound card has a driver program that allows it to communicate with the operating system, and thus it can provide recording or other microphone functions.

1. Check if the sound card device driver is still there.
Right click on "My Computer", Select "Manage" and go to the "device manager". Look for an entry in the section most likely called "Sound , video and game controllers". If the drive software is missing there will be an entry there listing a sound device with a yellow exclamation mark next to it. It may also end up in some other generic section of that same page since Windows may not know how to categorize the device if the driver is missing.

If the sound card is OK it will be listed there and if you look at the details it would say no problem is detected.

2. Make sure the laptop speakers are not muted or turned down.

3. Make sure the mic itself is not muted also or turned down.
You can view those controls by double-clicking the speaker icon down near the clock in the lower right corner, or by going to in the control panel > sound-audio devices.

4. Check the mixer levels for both play and record, you can only view one at a time.
That means there is a mixer for playback and another one for recording. If your device driver is missing you have to fix that first.

Even if you remove the "driver" the files are still on the computer unless you proactively went and found the driver files (not likely) and removed them. For example, if you go to the control panel and delete the sound card entry, it will come back when you reboot because the driver files are still on the system.

You could go get the latest sound card driver from Dell.com.
Go to the Dell home computers > Support page, Drivers, Laptop > Lattitude, etc and put in your model number of your laptop or the service tag number from the bottom of the laptop. I won't cover the exact sequence since you should be able to find it in about 2 minutes.

This direct link might work (take out spaces if they show up)
http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/driverslist.aspx?c=us&cs=19&l=en&s=dhs&ServiceTag=&SystemID=LAT_PNT_PM_D600&os=WW1&osl=en&catid=&impid=

Dell drivers are a single file that is self extracting after you download it, and then go find it and run it. It will install the appropriate driver files when you double-click on the installer.

It appears the Dell D600 has a Sigmatel sound card by default..

We can provide a shorter and more accurate solution if you provide more details as indicated earlier.

Sound driver for dell speakers windows xp system


The Speakers themselves do not require a driver, but your sound card does. You should be able to get the drivers for your Sound Card from the Dell website Support Page (if you have a dell computer.)

How do i reinstall my dell speaker? i deleted them off cp. my bad


The speakers are not the sound device, the sound card is. You ust select the sound device that is installed in the computer. If you PC is a Dell, go to Support.dell.com and enter your service tag in the downloads section. download the latest audio driver for your PC and it should reset everything to the correct parameters.

Good Luck!

Static coming from my DELL AS500 speakers


It's the jack on the back of the PC or sound card. Sounds like some solder is loose on the jack.

The cheapest solution would likely be to just replace the sound card, if your comfortable installing them. It's really quick and pretty hard to mess up.

If it's "onboard" sound, meaning the audio jacks are built right into the mother board, you'd likely need to just replace it with a pci based sound card.

Where do I plug the speaker in?


Please be more specific - Usually on the back of any computer you have 3 outlets at your sound card:

one is for "mic" (pink)
one is for "speaker" (green)
one is for "line in" (blue)

Rear speakers do not connect


Hi

Hi

Check out Dell WL6000 Setup and Quick Reference Guide - https://support.dell.com/support/edocs/acc/P121646/multlang/srg/DAO/srg_dao.pdf

Try re-synchronize the wireless link. If there is still no audio form the rear speaker, check if speaker mode in your computer is set to 5.1 channels. Click Start Control Panel Sounds and Audio Devices. Under Speaker Setting, click Advanced and select 5.1 surround sound speakers.
NOTE: The rear speaker will not have audio output if the source audio does not have surround sound.
