My dell 3100 desktops sound card is not working. it is integrated. i have ran a diagnostic and it states ther is no sound card installed, it used to work.

Hi! If diagnostic stated that there is no sound detected on it then the motherboard should be replace, because it's integrated .If the system is still in warranty call Dell. If not you can buy a PCI sound card and insert it to your motherboard pci slot. That should do the job. Hope that will help you . GOD Bless

I have a Dell Dimension 3100 N series-no audio

Yes you can get a card for this unit and any cheap old PCI slot card will work. UNless that is you want an expensive high quality sound car. Where this card will plug in is the back of the computer inside on the motherboard where most likely your video card it... There is only one type of slot it can fit in so just line them up and press it in. BE VERY CAREFUL not to shock your motherboard with static or it will be shot. To do this always have one hand grounded on the case AT ALL TIMES!!!! Now, once you have your sound card installed pop in the drive cd that comes with it install the software restart your conputer and you will have sound :)

Went from a Dell Dimension 8250 to a Dell Optiplex GX280

Check for updated drivers and install if available. If that does not resolve the issue completely remove the card and any software and drivers and do a clean install with the new drivers
