Question about Dell PC Desktops
I have a Dell Optiplex 745. The sound is extremely bad. I cannot listen to any music or watch any U tube videos or watch a DVD. I tried calling Dell - they recommended a change in motherboard, which was done by them as the product was still under warranty. The sound comes out like a very bad 'am radio' with disturbances and screeching etc.
I was hoping not to have to reinstall the entire windows xp and all my programs. Is there a way to just check the sound files or replace a corrupted sound file in windows xp.
I have done the usual steps of replacing the external speakers and following the windows trouble shooting of the sound system without any luck.
I would really appreciate any help.
I would suggest you get yourself a new sound card for the computer.
here are some from newegg http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=ENE&DEPA=0&Order=BESTMATCH&Description=creative+sound+card&x=0&y=0
the 30usd card will do great, but if you want even better quality you could get the creative extreme audio they are all on that newegg shop page above.
