Click on the speaker icon in the lower right side of the screen, and set the volume control to high. If no help, do you have amplified speakers? Line or headphone outputs are too low to drive speakers directly.

I still have a Dell Dimension 8400. The external hardware (big box, speakers, cords, etc...) no longer work....If I connect headphones into the computer, the sound is fine..But now I want to be able to...


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

Make sure physical cables are plugged in correctly from speaker to audio ports.

Thanks for the response. I installed the audio cable but still no sound. Any other suggestions?? Checked the device manager and it tells me that the dvd is functioning properly.


First guess, ensure the speakers are powered, double check all connections. Ensure that all audio drivers are installed in the device manager, or try installing the drivers for audio from Dell's website. You can search via your Dell service tag to provide drivers for your PC.

Ensure the volume control for Windows is turned up and not muted, and ensure the volume on the speakers.

Are you trying to play an audio CD from the DVD drive? If so, it may require a 4 pin analog cd audio cable which goes from the DVD drive to the sound card.

Vno sound volume not working


  1. Double-click the speaker icon in the system tray.
  2. Verify that the audio settings slider bar is at least midway for all audio selections.
  3. Remove any check marks that appear in the mute boxes.
  4. Make certain your speakers are plug into the GREEN socket on the rear of your computer.
  5. Check your speakers to see if their power supply is plugged in and functional.
  6. Check in the Device Manager for a Splat near SOUND,VIDEO,AND GAME DEVICES.
  7. You also might try System Restore and go back several days when you know for sure it was working.
  8. Update the drivers from dell's site, there is only 1 Audio driver...here is a link to that page:

Dell Dimension 2200


Some basic questions first: -Are you using the built-in sound card and are your speakers plugged into the green socket? -Did you plug your speakers into another computer to see if they work, if you didn?t how did you test them? -Have you checked the Sounds and audio devices in the control panel? Go to Start, Control Panel, and open Sounds and Audio Devices. Make sure the volume is up and the mute box IS NOT checked. If you?re using Windows XP Click on the Speaker Volume button and make sure the left and right speaker volumes are up. -What program are you trying to use to test the sound volume? Let us know if this solves your problem or if you need some more assistance.
