XP & 2000 are separate OSes.

If ythe computer doesn't have audio out, there are a million places you can buy sound cards. Start with

If you mean you have an audio out from the computer but you get no sound, then start with the following:-

Go to control Panel, Sound

Make sure that your audio output isn't muted, and that the computer recognizes your sound device. If it's muted un mute, or turn up the volume, if it sees your sound device make sure it's selected.

If it doesn't see your sound card (And you know the computer supports sound) then you need to visit, click on support, download, enter your asset tag, or model number and it will provide you with the require drivers and you should be all set..:-)

I am unable to get the speakers to work at all. They will not play system sounds or anything. Troubleshooter suggested that I uninstall and reinstall the speakers. So I uninstalled and went to reinstall...

I don't know what is the operating system you are using with your computer.Still we can check, first we need to find out if the problem is with the speaker or with the computer.

Try these steps
  • connect those speakers with other computer check the sound, if you are getting sound there it means speakers are ok need to check computer audio setup and hardware.
  • If you are not getting any sound connecting speakers with other computer then it is speakers need to replace.

Incase speakers are ok Disconnect the speakers

  • restart the computer,check if there is windows sound if not
  • right click on the volume control icon on the left hand button corner of the screen,uncheck the mute option.still not getting any sound?
  • try to download the audio driver from the dell support site.still not getting
  • need to check the internal speaker connection,if it is fine
  • go to this website and click on Restore sound -windows Audio service and run the tweak,YOU NEED TO USE INTERNET EXPLORER
  • still you cannot hear the sound change the internal speaker.

Speakers and controls are working but sound barely comes out.

Check the back of the computer. Typically this caused when the connection is loose or the speakers are plugged in to the wrong jack. The correct jack on a Dell is usually a light green color. The Microphone is pink, etc.

Ok, there is a plug that looks green on the back of the unit. Match the color coding on the back of the unit and on the sound card. Make suire its plugged in the right hole because you got LINE IN- MIC and SPEAKER.. if its a 7.1 sound card then you probably got CENTER- RIGHT AND LEFT and so on.. check your cabling..

Can i add any speakers to my dell vostro 200?

No you don't. As long as you can plug the speakers to the green port on the back of the computer, the speakers are powered and the volume knob on the speakers is turned all the way up. You should hear sound.

Also make sure the sound is not muted in windows.

Sound Won't Work on Dell Computer

Go to Control Panel and go to sound and audio devices. It should have the name of the speakers you are using. If it doesnt then the speakers might not work on that PC. Get a new set of speakers, and try again. It should work on the new ones. If it doesnt, get it checked at PC World or a PC repair store to get it checked, as the problem will be internal in the PC. Hope it works.
