Question about Dell OptiPlex GX270 PC Desktop

1 Answer

Sound In my device manager, the multi media audio controller has a yellow question mark. Further, I can't locate a driver for it. As a result when I try to play CD, or radio, or anything with sound...I'm told "no sound device".

HI,
Download and install multimedia( audio & video ) drivers for your Motherboard.

Go to manufacturer of your Motherboard, in the customer support category, download the media driver in the XP operating system.
Unzip it when you finish downloading and it will be automatically detected by your computer.

Sound Driver


Your sound device is either damaged or has no driver installed. Look in Control Panel/System/Hardware/Device Manager for yellow marks.
You'll find the driver at the Compaq site.
I can't help you further without a model number.

Audio


Hi, Confirm that there is an audio device installed in your PC > right click on My Computer, Properties, Hardware tab, Device Manager button, expand Sound, video and game controllers, It's got to be there, with no yellow or red marks. Also in Start, Control Panel, Sounds and Audio Devices, Audio tab, you should have something in Default device. If none likewise in Device Manager or a yellow or red mark, you have to re-install your drivers by right clicking on the mark and click Update drivers. If they're there with no marks, ensure that they are enabled. Perhaps further assistance maybe made available if you can post brand/model of your PC and/or motherboard. Good luck and kind regards.
