Did it work before? Have you made any changes--such as moving your computer or the speakers. I ask this because many times people move something around and they unplug something.
You can check the following: If everything is plugged in and turned on, have you muted the volume (go to accessories and entertainment and volume control to see if the mute square is checked). Go to the control panel and open the sounds icon. Click on sounds and choose a sound and then click the preview arrow. If all has checked out so far, then your sound card may be bad. If the preview arrow is grayed out, then your sound drivers have been uninstalled or become corrupt. You will have to reinstall them.

Go to the dell site and download the drivers for your sound card (2 possible drivers) so I don't know which you will need.

Drivers are here

reinstall the drivers and see if that resolves your issue.

if not let us know.

Sound on pc cracklin


Start by plugging in the green audio jack into an mp3 player or even smartphone and test the speakers. If they still crackle then I would say replace the speakers. If they don't crackle then try going to Dell's website, search your model and update your audio driver.

Help, I'm getting no sound on my dell dimension E520, with Vista. Have uninstalled & reinstalled the driver. The speaker icon has a red x on it & volume is always on 0. When I try to open


Hi

Check whether you have muted the audio by using the keyboard hot keys.

I mean if you are using multimedia keyboard then there will be a button to enable/disable audio or mute/unmute audio. try pressing that again.

If problem persists download your audio driver from dell website, below is the link:

http://www.dell.com/support/drivers/us/en/04/DriverDetails/DriverFileFormats?c=us&l=en&s=bsd&cs=04&DriverId=R147075

...

If problem persists you can get back to me...

    Speaker have become staticy. Don't get a clear


    Try headphones to see if the audio is the problem or the speakers as a first test.

    If speakers have gotten wet or filled with dust/dirt could be the problem.

    Wet is fatal, replace them.
