Open the Control Panel.
Open "Systems".
Click on the "Hardware" tab.
Click on the "Device Manager" button.
In the device tree, expand "Sound, Video and Game controllers".
Look for your audio device. Right click and select "Properties".
In the box labeled "Device Status", does it say "This device is working properly", or does it say something else. There is a "Troubleshooter" button you can try if necessary.

If the above does not help, then right click on the audio device (still in the "device manager" tree) and select "Uninstall".
Reboot the machine. It should scan for new devices and attempt to install it automatically.

How do I restore my Dell Dimension C521? I am


You need the C521 recovery disk, from Dell. Set the BIOS to boot from CD and start the system.

If it gives you the option of "Complete Reinstall" or "Repair", choose Complete Reinstall.

If it does not, or if it does not work - i.e., it always reads the disk and tries to maintain as much data as it can, you need to first wipe out the hard drive; there are many "Disk Wipe" utilities out there. I'd suggest using a boot disk such as DBAN (www.dban.org).
