Subwoofer not working

Just received a new Dell tower this past week. (Dimension 9200C) It's confusing for us as we are relearning everything. We have gone from Windows XP Media Center to Vista home premium. With our last tower our speaker set up sounded GREAT! With this whole new set up our subwoofer does not seem to be working. It is up full blast and you hear very little bass. The sound is not at all comparable to what we had before. The only thing we have changed is the tower. I spoke to a Dell representative on Thursday and they couldn't seem to figure out the problem. They were supposed to call me back with an answer on Friday but never did. I will be calling them back this week but just thought I would see if you had any suggestions. I appreciate your input. Thanks. Tara

    Damn, same thing happening to mine. I have a Dimesion 4700, a few years old, and suddenly three days back the bass is just gone. It worked GREAT, you could almost break windows with it before, now it's just a big black box. Anyone?

Hi, What speakers (+sub) are you using (brand/model)? You have to consider whether it is basic 2, or 5.1 or 7.1. the Dell Dimension 9200C uses multiple sound connector at the back, the center/LFE connector (orange) should go to the sub-woofer in a 5.1 or 7.1 speaker system. An online manual is available @ Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things are or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards.

I have a Dell Dimension 4600. I press the power button. The left light on the tower turns on amber, the right light comes on for 15 seconds or so then shuts off. The monitor will not come on, but will...

The most likely cause is a failing power supply. Unless you have a tester you will need to buy a replacement. Check the specs and order a suitable replacement. ( is my choice)

If any of this goes past your computer knowledge take your computer to an expert to examine first-hand.

This problem has repeatedly been reported with this model and the 4800. People will tell you it's the power supply, motherboard and CPU. It is none of those. Your CPU cooling tower has been jarred loose. Dell made these things way too big, and as a result a simple bump to your case can make everything go crazy. Remove your fan shroud, then the fan then the cooling tower, cleaning each as you go.
Now remove the large cooling tower. Remove, clean and reseat your CPU, add NEW thermal paste and reassemble everything and keep the PC on it's side. The system should now be able to reboot. In extreme cases of jarring such as the PC has been dropped etc, your motherboard may have been damaged. In this situation it is best to buy a new motherboard and transfer all your components to the new board. So far, I haven't had to do this though. Most of these PC's come back to life easily with the steps I just mentioned above.

Dell Dimension 4600 Won't Boot Up, Steady Amber Light is on tower

I have seen with some of the small form factor dell's that there can be a motherboard problem; my expirence with the regular towers and the steady amber light have been power supplies. I have a dimension 9100 that is three years old now and I am on my fourth power supply. I am not sure that you would have one laying around, but in my past expirence its been teh power supply. On the ones that I have seen where it was the motherboard you could clearly see on the chipset where it was damaged from heat (it was burnt). Hope that helps
