Question about Dell Dimension 2400 PC Desktop

Dell Dimension 2400 audio issue, need help!

I can't figure out how to get audio working on my PC. I have a Dell Dimension 2400 desktop, i recently reformatted the PC and through, I downloaded all drivers (video, chipset, etc.) that were necessary to download. I've done this before with Dell computers and have never had a problem.. I've downloaded the specific audio drivers but i get an error saying "The Audio driver files do not support your system hardware." I've done just about every precaution I could possibly think of to fix this problem but to no avail nothing seems to work. I'm 100% positive this is the right driver because it's through the drivers page and it's the right computer model. Any form of help is extremely appreciated for I've been trying to fix this thing for quite some time now and can not for the life of me figure out the problem.

    I appreciate your time with helping me out with my predicament, these are the exact same files I've tried first and unfortunately neither of the three seem to do the trick. I have downloaded the correct driver and when i proceed in attempting to download it, it says that the driver does not work with computer. The other 2 files say 1.) could not find appropriate driver for the file selected and the other one says Soundblaster is not detected. I am from what I thought before this issue, quite computer savvy, I am 100% sure everything physically is intact with the motherboard and for some reason my audio configuration is not working properly. any further help is greatly appreciated

If you want to dig further into drivers outside of Dell, you might try You have to create an account there (it's free). They have a large selection of drivers for lots of manufacturers and OS's. Please read all the comments or notes about them before downloading one. You sometimes have to be generic in searching, but start with the manufacturer and then the model (I suggest only typing in the numbers from the model first) of your sound card and/or motherboard. I can't guarantee they'll have it, but they might.

Jeffiorio, Well it appears that you have done everything correct. However for this particular model, there are at least 3 different audio drivers available. I have ran into this problem myself within my shop a time or two before.Try one of these it will be correct for your PC.

Hi there, On your laptop that can get on the internet, go to and download drivers for your Network Card and your Video Card from that site. Make sure you put in the right model number (dimension 2400). Transfer them to a USB key, and move the USB key to your desktop. Install those drivers and everything work will again. You may need to install additional ones as you see other things not working (like audio). If you need more help, let me know. -Alex

Cant get on the internet

The longer the cable, the slower the connection.

It should work with the cable as it is not "too" long.

I would try turning the modem and router off for one minute and then turning back on.

Look at the description for the diagnostic lights on a Dell 2400 here under "A possible expansion card failure has occurred."

If you have recently installed any card (wireless, sound, etc.), then this would be my first suspect.
