Question about Dell Inspiron 530 Desktop Computer

1 Answer

Distorted sound from new Dell desktop

The desktop is 535S, everything else seems fine but all headphones and speakers I have used give high levels of distortion, there is a hiss that precedes and sustains long after the sound itself is over. I tried diabling all effects from the control panel but no noticable difference. This seems a uniform problem with all the Inspiron range of desktops reading through this chain, Sen

1. In most cases the problem maybe due to the powersupply. If the filter capacitor or the diodes are not working properly in the power supply, it could give the distortion sound. Use a different powersupply to see if it solves the problem.
2. The mic wire can also catch some hissing noise sometimes. Disconnect the mic wire from the motherboard and see if it solves the problem.

Thanks

Output distortion from bass amp


The amp is clipping the signal. This could be from the input being too high. The impedance being too low or the finals are damaged.

Hi Bill. You can buy a small multimedia speaker package for very little money these days. A small subwoofer and a pair of speakers (called a 2.1 system) will give pretty reasonable sound if you are on a budget

My headphones will work but my desktop speakers will not why?


If your speakers work fine when plugged into the headphones socket on the front of the system, then there is no fault with them.
If the sound through the speakers is very low when plugged into the rear panel socket, that would suggest that you may be plugged into the line out socket rather than the speaker socket and that there is a mismatch of the impedence between the socket and speakers.
If you have three audio sockets on the rear panel, try the speakers in the second output socket (but not in the microphone socket) and see if it makes a difference.
You could try the same test using the headphones - do you still get good sound levels with the headphones when plugged in to the rear panel socket?
If neither the speakers nor headphones give good sound when plugged in to the rear panel, then you may have a problem with either the sound card if the sockets are on a separate PCI card, or with a poor connection on the cable to the socket header bracket from the motherboard pins for audio for integrated adapters.

Dimension 4700 my headphones work fine but i cant


Are you have the headphones and speakers both pluged in? When you plug in headphones the speakers get muted. You need to change your sound settings back to your sound card if you use usb headphones. The plug on the front of the 4700 also automatically mutes the speakers.

Sound is low


try to see if the wave volume is on and maximum on the volume panel ( double click on vol icon on tray system (right low) ) ...also see if your speakers are plugged into the proper place ...and are not in the auxiliary out or something like this ...they should be plugged into the green middle out ...if they are simple stereo 3,2 jack ...so ..if the problem its still on ..its probably the sound card...(actually the pre-amplifier on it ..)

Inspiron 530 sound distortion


What kind of integrated sound card do you have?? I am going to assume its realtek. Go to control panel, then open up RealTek HD Sound effect manager and make sure the drop down menu for Environment is on "none". The try your speakers.

Audio volume keeps changing by itself


No, the headphone output is designed for 2 speaker output. Just recently I had a customer who had no sound coming from the desktop speakers yet the headphones worked just fine.
I believe that your model has a sound circuit integrated into the motherboard. It may have a “plastic cap” covering the audio ports (next to the USB ports). If you remove the sound card and enable the integrated audio in the BIOS, you can check to see if the sound card is actually the problem.

Using headphones with Logitech X-230 speakers


I really don't know, because some of the newer gadgets come with fixed volume control due to law suits, ect. Try to see if you can bring you TV menu up and see what the sound setting is.
