No sound coming for my dell desktop computer


First, verify that your volume is not muted in Windows by clicking the volume icon near the clock in the bottom right of the screen. Also verify that your sound device is plugged into the correct audio port, which is usually the green one for stereo sound.

Once you have done that, check the sound settings in Control Panel and make sure that the correct audio device is selected. While you are in Control Panel, check Device Manager and make sure that your sound card is listed under sound controllers. If it is listed there, check that it is enabled by right clicking it and selecting enable, which will be grayed out or simply not there if the device is already enabled.

If the device is not where it should be and is instead listed as "Unidentified Audio Device" or somesuch, go to the Dell website and locate your computer in their Support section, download the audio drivers there.

If you have recently replaced the sound card with a PCI or PCIe aftermarket solution, verify the same steps for that card, including verifying that the sound device is plugged into the correct plug on the back.

If nothing seems wrong still, attempt to uninstall the sound drivers and reinstall them anyway. Confirm that the sound device you connected works on something besides the computer.

If none of those things is the issue, you have a hardware issue with your motherboard and you will either need to put in an aftermarket sound card like I mentioned above or have dell send you a new motherboard by calling their technical support phone number.

MY DELL PC HAVE SOUND DRIVERS WHICH ARE NOT WORKING AND ONCE I INSTALL NEW SOUND DRIVER THEY SOUND AT A VERY LOW VOICE EVEN WHEN THE VOLUME IS ADJUSTE TO THE HIGHEST


Hi antonykionyo

DELL OPTIPLEX GX60 DESKTOP PC AUDIO/SOUND DRIVER

You don't say which Operating System you use, so my answer will be presented in general, Windows terms. If yours is a non-Windows Operating System, consider applying the logic and principles involved here to your own Operating System and, if in doubt, please feel free to add a Comment or Clarification to this Question, including information about your Operating System.

Check the status of the Audio Device and the Audio Driver in Device Manager.

Start > (My) Computer > (System Properties) View System Settings > Device Manager

This will tell you if the Audio/Sound Device is installed and functioning properly and if the Audio/Sound Driver is installed properly. If a red 'x' or a yellow question or exclamation mark appears next to the Audio/Sound Device, then there is probably a settings anomaly, fault, error or conflict with the Audio Device and/or its Driver.

AUDIO DEVICE SETTINGS
For your Audio/Sound Device to function properly, it must be set as the Default Device:

Start > Control Panel > (Hardware and Sound) Sounds Speech and Audio Devices > Sounds and Audio Devices > (Manage Audio Devices) Audio > click on the Drop Down Menu to the right of "Sound Playback - Default Device" (preferred Default Playback Device) > select "ADI 198x Integrated Audio" > Apply > OK > Restart computer.

AUDIO/SOUND DRIVER PROBLEMS
Re-install the correct Audio/Sound Driver that relates to both the Audio/Sound Device (ADI 198x Integrated Audio) and your Operating System, then restart the computer. Install the Audio/Sound Driver either from the Dell Drivers and Utilities CD or from the official Dell support website here:

http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/download.aspx?c=us&cs=19&l=en&s=dhs&releaseid=R71579&SystemID=PLX_PNT_CEL_GX60&servicetag=&os=WW1&osl=en&deviceid=2430&devlib=0&typecnt=0&vercnt=3&catid=-1&impid=-1&formatcnt=0&libid=3&typeid=-1&dateid=-1&formatid=-1&source=-1&fileid=92933

If your Operating System is not the original Windows 2000 or Windows XP for which this PC was designed, then it is highly probable that no Audio/Sound Driver exists for that Operating System.

If you are committed to both this PC and an unsupported Operating System but all the other Devices and their Drivers are functioning normally except the Audio Device or you are using Win 2000 or Win XP but the Audio/Sound Problem remains unsolvable (faulty Audio/Sound Chip), then consider buying and installing either an internal 5.1, 7.1 or 8.1 PCI Sound Card or an external USB Sound Card that is pre-confirmed as being compatible with your Operating System. They can all be inexpensive. See examples here:

http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=5.1+7.1+8.1+pci+soundcard&x=5&y=17

I hope this helps.

No sound


Hi there.

If there is no sound coming out from your desktop, make sure that the audio card driver is installed or updated. To check on this, go to Device Manager ( START - Right Click My Computer - Properties - Hardware - Device Manager). See if there is a yellow exclamation point before AUDIO. If there is, then you need to download the driver from the Emachines website.

Thank you!

How i get free audio an sound installer device?


You could try deleting the audio device (it may have a yellow asterix) in the Device Manager and restarting your computer to see if Windows will automatically reinstall the sound driver.

My sound card on my desktop PC is not working


If it is on board sound then first check in bios that sound audio device is enable. For that when you power up the computer press F1 or F2 or del or ALt+F2 to enter in bios then go to pci configuration and make sure audio is enable then save settings and exit. If it was already enable then make sure audio driver is installed and working fine. You can check it in device manager. Right click on my computer icon then click on property then click on hardware->device manager then you can see all drivers list then make sure audio driver is installed. If still same issue then uninstall audio driver from start menu->control panel->add remove programs then reinstall driver from disk. If you haven't driver disk then download audio driver from desktop menufecturer web sites then install then it will work fine. If you have sound card installed in PCI slot of cpu then open cpu cabinet then reconnect sound card in another pci slot on motherboard then reinstall audio driver then it will work fine. Also make sure there is not any loose connection on sound jack and speaker cable.Make sure in control panel sound property there are not any mute sound. Play song file in window media player and make sure sound is not mute on it. Then check. Let me know if you need further assistance. Thanks for using FixYa.

My computer can play audios and videos but cannot produce any sound and i have tried to play both CDs, Flash and some music saved inside still the same problem occurs. what can i do? thanks.


THIS WILL HAPPEN IF:
-if your speakers are plugged in the wrong hole
-if the power adapter from the wall to the speaker fails
-if the speakers are muted in windows sounds properties (double click speaker icon by clock on desktop to check-making sure the MUTE box is NOT checked)
-if the sound card drivers are corrupt or not installed
(right click "right click "my computer" left click "properties"- click the "hardware" tab at the top- click on the "device manager" button
scroll down to where it says "sound and audio" with a + next to it. if there is a yellow ! or ? it means that your software drivers for the sound are corupt or missing and will need to be reinstalled using the install disk or downloaded drivers from the dell website which are free.
Regards.
