If the back of the computer has 3 jacks colored either red, blue, pink, or green, then it has a built in sound card.if not, then it requires a sound card. You can purchase a usb sound card if you are not comfortable installing a sound card inside a pc.

My dell desktop computer stops displaying, help I have changed the RAM and even the processor, still no progress report kindly help


You need to post your model number. Sounds like you need to replace the display card. If it doesn't have a display card but has the video built into the motherboard then that is a problem. Sometimes the motherboard will have a slot to plug in a display card.

Installing 5.1 channel pci sound card


http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/opgx260/en/sm/index.htm

Computer Cover

Depending on what model you have, you may have 1 PCI expansion slot, or up to 4 PCI expansion slots.

Small Form Factor computer (SFF) = 1 PCI slot
Small Desktop computer = 2 PCI slots
Small Mini-Tower computer = 4 PCI slots

http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/opgx260/en/ug/specs.htm

You need an open available PCI slot, and may not have one with the Small Form Factor computer, or Small Desktop computer.

2) The Sound Card needs to be a Low Profile one.
Maximum size depends on what model it is.

3) Computer on, and Windows running, install the sound card's Installation Disk (CD) in the optical drive of the computer, and load the software.

After the drivers, and if you also chose the effects manager, are installed; close all windows, and go back to your desktop screen.
Turn your computer off normally.

{Your computer will not use the sound card drivers, until the Sound Card is physically installed }


4) FOLLOW Anti-Static Precautions, with your Unplugged from power computer, and open the computer case.

Anti-Static Precautions:
Your body carries Static electricity. Static WILL fry out (Short Circuit), the delicate hardware components inside a computer.

Relieve your body of Static BEFORE working on your computer.

Computer on a table, computer unplugged from power, computer case open;
TOUCH an unpainted surface, of the metal frame of the open computer case.
This action will relieve your body of Static.

IF you leave your computer in the middle of working on it, be SURE to Touch the metal frame again upon your return.

http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/opgx260/en/sm/cover.htm#1099393


5) Physically install the Sound Card.

Find an open PCI slot, and remove the expansion slot cover from the metal frame of the computer case, that matches up to this PCI slot.
(Note the PCI slot will not be directly in line, with the expansion slot cover. It is 'one over' )

http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/opgx260/en/sm/cards.htm#1104768

6) Attach your audio cables to the Sound Card. Plug the computer into power. WAIT 1 minute, turn the computer on.

Go to the system task bar at the bottom of the desktop screen, and click on the Volume icon. (Looks like a speaker)
Set the Volume where you wish.
(Also you may want to Right-click on the Volume icon, and make sure your audio { Sound }, is Enabled )

If you do not have the Installation Disk with the needed software on it, go to the Sound Card's support website, and download the software.
Post the manufacturer name of the Sound Card, and it's model number, and I'll guide you with the above.

For additional questions post in a Comment.

How do i replsce the sound card on dell dimension


The sound card is on the mother board, but you can buy a PCI sound card and install it in one of the empty whit slots on the mother board.
I am not sure but you may need to dissable the onboard sound before you install the add in replacement sound card.
You can ask dell support if you need to do this, www.support.dell@dell.com
Good luck. I hope this helps. Have a good day.

Replacing a sound card for a dell dimension 3000


Check if your PC has a PCI slot. It is this white strip on you motherboard. Go to your PC shop and ask for a PCI sound card. Just insert it and install the Drivers CD. If it doesn't, You may have the old ISA slot and stores may not be available of any ISA sound card. But dont worry, generally all computers starting from pentium 2 has a PCI slot. You may worry only if your computer is as old as the 486 computers.
