I have a dell computer that runs windows xp. im not a complete idiot but im not very computer savvy. I was messing around a few weeks ago trying to clean up my system from the previuos owners stuff . i...

Many Dell PCs have an internal speaker that will allow sounds and even music to play - it is just not as good as the external types that offer sub woofers and stereo sound. As long as you're hearing the familiar Windows Sounds and not simple beeps - your sound card drivers are probably ok.

This makes me think that you've either inserted the speaker plug into the wrong jack on the PC or have an issue with the speakers themselves. Generally, these jacks are color coded. If yours are, make sure that speakers are connected to the GREEN jack. If not color coded there should be an indication of an arrow pointing OUT or a speaker icon near the speaker jack. If still no luck, it is possible that the cord between the plug and the speakers has gotten pinched or broken. Try plugging a pair oh head phones into the jack - or plug the speakers into another device with a speaker jack. I'm pretty sure you'll get your answer after doing that. Some final thoughts: Maybe your speakers need power? Are they plugged in? Is the outlet powered? Is there a power indicator? Is the volume knob turned to minimum?

If you still have problems - provide the model number of your Dell PC and we can dig some more - but I think you'll find the problem if you follow the steps above.

I hope this was Very Helpful - and good luck!

I have lost sound in my sound card i have no idea

Sounds like a driver problem. Try installing the driver by letting Windows find the files it need. Do that by extracting the files in the driver file you have downloaded from the internet. And update the sound card using Window's tool, browse to the folder where you have extracted the files and let windows do the rest. It should working most of the time unless it isn't a driver problem.

However, it might be a hardware problem, too.
