SOURCE: K9VGM-V Mobo, AMD 6400+, Realtek ALC883 on-board sound, XP Service Pack 2

This board seems to have an issue after installing 4gb of ram after swapping out 1gb of transcend ram and installing 2x 2gb kingston the audio device disappears, swap the ram back and the problem goes away, to further complicate things it seems that kingston and transcend ram doesn't play nice together in this board having one of each results in no post and a ram related beep code as of yet I have not been able to produce the bios settings to allow the two sticks to play nice together maybe somebody else can help out on this one!

So either lose a stick of ram or install a sound card and have your system become considerably unstable

No sound


Go to CONTROL PANEL, HARDWARE & SOUND, MANAGE AUDIO DEVICES (Under SOUND). Click on PLAYBACK to see what audio device is installed if any. If necessary, select a device and/or test it.

If no device is present, you need to run a device driver search to find what driver was not installed - Slim Drivers from slimwareutilities.com is free and does a great job at identifying missing drivers. It will usually find the missing driver and help you install it to get sound working on your system.

If installing the proper driver does not help, you may have to use an external (USB) audio plug and only be able to access sounds through headphones or speakers.

I have no sound and i can not see the volume control


It's a possible problem with the driver or the sound card may be disabled. To check if the sound card is disabled or drivers not installed,
1. Right click on "My Computer" select "Properties"

2. Click "Device Manager"
11_23_2011_1_32_59_am.jpg
3. From the list, you should see a "Sound Controller" and if you click on the drop down arrow beside it, you should see the audio driver installed(ex. High Definition Audio Device... audio driver name may vary depending on the brand of the laptop).
11_23_2011_1_33_43_am.jpg
4. Right click on the sample "High Definition Audio Device" then select Properties. If it says device is working properly then there shouldn't be any problem with your audio.
11_23_2011_1_34_25_am.jpg
** If the Sound Controller is NOT installed properly you need to download the Audio drivers from the support site of your Dell computer, http://support.dell.com , be sure to select the correct model of your laptop and operating system of your computer. Once you have downloaded and installed the drivers, Audio should work fine not unless it is the hardware itself that is damaged.
**Also don't forget to check if there are other external audio output devices connected to your computer, please do test if working properly.
Hope this helps. Glad to be of service.

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.

Acer extensa 4620z sound problem


If you cant hear sound, go to Control Panel and make sure your audio device is installed correctly. If audio device has yellow mark, or some error, reinstall your audio device drivers. If you don't have Laptop CD, you can download your audio driver from here: ftp://ftp.work.acer-euro.com/notebook/extensa_4620/driver/Audio_Realtek_v5.10.0.5423_XP.zip
If your audio device has no problem in Control Panel, make sure your sound is at maximal level. Hope this helps.

Hello i like to install speaker sound drivers ...


Speakers do not need any drivers!! Your sound card need drivers.

If your sound card is PCI, remove it and reinsert it to the PCI slot again and see whether your system detect the device and use the sound CD to install the drivers. (Change PCI slots if necessary and turn off the PC before changes the PCI sound card).

If your audio device is intergrated device, check the Bios to make sure the sound/audio is enable.

Note: Check the device manager first to see any audio device had been install properly.

Check whether the sound card drivers are installed properly or not. If installed check in the device manager, go to device manager and navigate to sound and audio devices. Check if the drivers are installed correctly.

I hope it works this way. Thank u
