Question about Dell Dimension 4550 PC Desktop
We just were given my parents old computer. They had someone clean everything off of it but unfortunately whatever he did caused it to not have sound anymore so we can not play cds or hear anything on it. What do I need to do to get it back?
Most commonly this is a driver issue. What operating system are you running? (Windows XP?, Vista?). Many common drivers can be loaded automatically through Windows Update (having the latest service pack/updates is important for many reasons). If you have the latest service pack and all updates already,.. please (Click Here) to find download instructions and download the appropriate driver for your PC.

For the Dell Dimension 4550 there's a drivers list, see next page:
The drivers list is for the Operating System XP.
Detect the hardware, have a look in the hardware manager.
Soundcard and cd/dvd drive need a firmware driver to get it functional.
Download the matching driver for your hardware.
When not knowing what driver to install, first download all audio and
cd/dvd drivers to a location on the computer, e.g. C:\DRIVERS .
After the download, update drivers in the hardware manager with the listing in the DRIVERS map.
When needing more help, just add a comment in this thread.
