Question about Dell Dimension 3100 PC Desktop
I agree with Hector above. Please be a bit more specific to the problem.
Some possible solutions:
If you reformatted the system recently, there is a specific order to loading the drivers. If you don't follow that order, the sound won't work and you will need to reformat and load the drivers in the order below.
I had the same problem formatting 5 like systems and sound only worked on one of them. After countless reloads, I called Dell support who alerted me to this problem.
Here is the order:
1-desktop system software (optional)
2-Intel Chipset Software
4-Sigmatel driver (or sound driver)
Another issue could be that someone muted your speakers. If the following icon in the tray looks like this,
left click on it and this menu will appear:
Uncheck MUTE and click anywhere on the desktop.
If the icon isn't even there, that's for another topic, for another day.
