What have you tried so far, specifically? From the description provided I would try two things. First, I would check on Dell's support site to see if there's a newer driver available for your sound card, as they update them fairly regularly in most cases. Assuming you have Windows XP, this link should get you to their audio driver section for your machine: http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/driverslist.aspx?os=WW1&osl=EN&catid=3&impid=-1&servicetag=&SystemID=DIM_CEL_3000&hidos=WW1&hidlang=en Do you remember making any system changes from the time the sound worked last until it stopped? Maybe something was installed that caused a conflict with your sound card. Does everything appear ok in the Device Manager? (Start -> Control Panel -> System -> Hardware -> Device Manager) Nothing shows up with a red X or a yellow exclamation point?

No sound on computer


Hello,

Exit all programs and then re-boot the computer first to see if the sound returns. If you hear the start up sound, things are probably working.

Here is a link to the Dell support page to investigate further:

sounds like an internal connection problem. open access panel and check the solder connection is not broken or loose. Be sure the metal mesh jacket is not touching the lead wire as that would cause a scratchy noise and feedback, or maybe near the internal cable causing feedback

I would start by downloading and reinstalling the sound card drivers under the "audio" section. They can be found HERE directly from dell. Just make sure to choose your correct operating system

No sound on my Dell Dimension 3000


i would try checking the plug for your speakers to see if it is loose.
If you move the plug is there any static that comes from the speakers?

If you have headphones maybe try plugging them in to see if you have sound through them.
If you do have sound then i would say it is your speakers that are bad.

If you get no sound or scratchy sound through the headphones, then i would suspect either a loose jack connection for your audio or a dying audio chip.
