First verify you see a small sound icon in the Systray . If this icon is missing follow the below section
1. Open the Control panel
2. Open the "Sounds and Audio Devices" icon.
3. Verify the "Place volume icon in the taskbar" checkbox is checked. If this option is not available or is grayed out, skip to the next section of this document.
4. If you were able to check this box, click ok and close out of this window and the Control Panel.
5. Double-click the sound icon in the Systray and verify that all the sound volumes are mid-way or higher.

Check Windows services. Right Click My Computer and Manage. Choose Services and Application

No sound from my dell 3100 exsternal speakers are working.

Hi there.
On the computer look at the bottom right hand side of the screen, click on the speaker icon and see if there are any sound devices installed on the computer. If there is make sure it not on mute and that its at 100%, then play a tune.
plug the main speaker jack into the green port at the back of the computer, if its not the green one try the others too.
If there is no driver installed post back.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

I have a Dell Dimension 3100 and there is no sound. the drivers have been re-installed twice. Help!

If the little speaker icon appears on the taskbar by the clock verify that it is not muted and that the volume slider is up. Connect headphones or earbuds to the front headphone jack and see if you have sound there. If so then verify your speakers are plugged in the back of the PC (green jack) and they are plugged in to AC power (if powered) and that they are on.

Cannot get any sound from my Dimension 3100

Speakers are not built into the box itself. They may be in the monitor, or completely separate.

Did you get this directly from Dell, or from a third party. Dell would have shipped you speakers with it, or a monitor with speakers built-in. Purchased from a third-party you might just get the box itself.

If you have a monitor with speakers, you still have to connect the sound output from the box to the monitor.
