Question about Dell Dimension 3000 PC Desktop
If there isn't a little green 1/8 inch audio jack for speakers anywhere on your system then you do in fact need a sound card which can be cheap and easy to install. if you do have a sound card already and you just arent seeing volume control then your sound card drivers are probably not installed and to find out drivers you need you need to figure out what sound card you have by physically looking at the card. or you can try running microsoft update in custom mode and you might get lucky and under hardware drivers you might get what you need.

If the computer is the dell in title, then the speakers socket is the green jack , you find one at the back of computer, and one behind the front sliding panel.
If the computer is different from the one in title, then you may need to install an audio card into the computer.
In this case a simple solution may be installing an external audio card, klike the ones below.
SoundWave 7.1 Audio Adapter
USB Audio Adapter 3D Sound 5.1 CH Controller
If instead your computer has the audio jack , but has no sount it may need driver setup.
In that case follow instructions on link below to download and install drivers.

you will have to open up the computer to check the lead attached to the rear of the input plug make
sure the connection is good with no dust as dust causes static electricity
clean your computer of dust using a fine air blower from a compressor making VERY sure that there is
no MOISTURE in the air line specifically around the sound card and the CPU central processing unit
dust causes static to build up in a computer
