Sounds like you have to go back and add the driver back in. Go to dell/support and then click on drivers. They have several diffrent type of drivers on there so you will have to pick them out one by one unless you know which is right for you. If you know about computers you can open the cpu where the motherboard is located and look for yourself to see what video card is attached to it. Hope this works for you.

Probably a driver issue...check in the device manager and update the drivers for your audio devices.

I can't get the sound to work on my laptop, it is not muted and says it is on. Now what


If you are using Windows, you should check the "device manager", and verify that there are not any red x's or yellow !'s marked on any of the devices (specifically sound card). For Windows 7 or 8, I would also verify that the mixer (audio icon in bottom right corner of monitor) is not muted, also click on the word mixer, and verify that none of the individual applications are muted. You will also want to check that the sound is turned up on both your laptop and windows audio mixer (same icon in bottom right) .... usually these two should coincide with eachother, but that is not always the case. Also verify that the sound does not work for other sources (check web sites, windows media player etc... ) so that you can make sure this is not an issue with the specific application or a possible codec issue.

Headphone jack does not work


The headphone jack on the computer connects to the sound card, a hardware device that controls audio input and output on the PC. The card contains a digital-to-analog converter that converts analog audio into digital signals and visa-versa. The performance of the headphone jack, therefore, depends on how well the sound card functions; if the card doesn't work, then the headphones connected to the PC won't output sound. Reconfiguring the audio settings will often fix problems with audio output on the headphone jack, but if the former fails to resolve the issue, replacing the sound card in its entirety is sometimes the only means of repair.
Click "Start." Enter "sound" into the search box. Select "Sound" from beneath Control Panel. Double-click "Headphones." If no "Headphones" option is available, double-click "Speakers." Click "Properties" on the General tab. Check the Device Status field for errors. Look up the message on Microsoft Support for more assistance, if applicable. Close the window if the Device Status field reads "This Device Is Working Properly." Go to the "Levels" tab. Click the speaker button to unmute the volume if the icon contains a red circle-backslash symbol. Drag the top slider to the right to increase the headphone volume. Go to the "Enhancements" tab. Check "Disable all Sound Effects." Go to Applications, and then clear "Allow Applications to Take Exclusive Control of This Device." Click "OK" to close Headphones Properties or Speakers Properties. Test the audio. If the headphones fail to output sound, unplug the headphones from the computer. Reconnect the headphones to the PC. Headphone jacks are color-coded lime green on most PCs. Look for the headphones symbol if the jacks are not color-coded. Plug the headphones into the line-out port on the back of the computer if the headphone jack on the front of the PC fails to work, or visa-versa. Test the headphones. If headphones still won't emit sound, the sound card most likely requires replacement. b> Replacing the Sound Card b> Shut down the computer. Remove the power cord from the back of the PC. Disconnect the keyboard, mouse, monitor and all other peripheral devices. Loosen the screws found on the back of the case, then slide the cover panel off of the case. Touch the chassis to protect the hardware from electrostatic discharge, or ESD. Set the computer on its side. Locate the sound card found on the opposite of the audio jacks and loosen the screw that secures the card to the computer. If no expansion card is located opposite the jacks, the computer uses an integrated sound card which can't be removed. Remove the new audio card from its protective packaging. Line up the card with an available expansion slot on the motherboard, then push the card down into the slot to install the new audio jacks. Screw the card to the computer case. Reassemble the computer. Turn on the PC. Boot in to Windows and insert the CD that came with the new expansion card. Follow the onscreen instructions to install the sound card software to the computer. Plug the headphones into the new line-out jack. Hope this helps.

I have a Tascam TM-D1000 digital mixer that has a TDIF output and want to connect this to my computer. Do I need a PCI 822 card or is there another option to connect?


I have a TMD1000 connected to my computer via the RCA ( Red & White) outputs on the mixer to an M-Audio 2496 Sound card in the computer.
also via the Digital out on the mixer to Digital in connector on the card.
I then edit recordings on the computer with Cubase pro.

Audio problem


You either have the wrong driver installed or a conflicting driver is present. Go to control panel->system->device manager-> look for the yellow exclamation point, double click on it and follow those instructions. If that does not work. Right click on the device, REMOVE, then reboot and let it refind it.
