Dear JTBB,

It sounds like your server didn't come with sound capabilities. In my experience working with servers, I find that many of them do not come equipped with an internal sound card. This is most likely the case with yours. If you have a few extra dollars to spare, my suggestion would be to purchase a sound card from a discount computer parts store. I like to shop online at "". There parts are very inexpensive, yet they are of good quality. You can get a good sound card there for as low as $9.99. Creative labs makes good sound blaster cards.
I hope this helps, let me know if I can assist you further.

    Thanks Arthur Bennett. The server machine did have no sound card. But if I like to add one, how do I know what brand of sound card will work? Thanks

Vaio USB and Sound Problem

Hello, It sounds like you have multiple problems. Instead of replacing any parts on your lap top, may I suggest you have a tech look at it first? He/She will be able to SEE how the damaged usb ports are affecting the whole of your laptop. It may be no more then checking the mute on your speakers. Thank You

Most servers don't come with a sound card. There is no use for them in a work environment. You would have use an add-on card.

My Sony VAIO VPCF133FX right speaker is not working what to do?

  • Open Sound Control panel and make sure sound is balanced in the middle
  • Check the sound driver and install any updated version from sony's site
  • If it still isn't working I'd say you will need to replace the speaker, could also be the connector may just need to be seated.

Will not hear/playback sound

I would recommend you buy a USB speaker system. This way you dont have to physically take the server down in order to achieve your goal.

Servers usually don't come with sound cards. If you really need one, you must install one. If it is truly a server, I would recommend against it.

NO Audio out put

dell2_bing.gifpoweredge servers are not needed for sound. DELL support will notsupport any sound cards or care anything about your audio issues. Youwill not find audio drivers because again, a server's purpose has nothing to do with audio.
