  1. Make sure the speakers are plugged into the CD-ROM drive headphone jack.
  2. Reboot the system and press F12 at POST to enter the one time boot menu.
  3. If Boot to Utility Partition is an option, select it; otherwise insert the Resource CD into the CD drive and select ATAPI CD-ROM.
  4. Select Boot from CD-ROM and choose the correct options to enter the 32bit Dell Diagnostics.
  5. Run the Audio Tests within the utility.
this would let you know if the problem is with the sound card or the softare ie the drivers for the sound card

Why my dell dimension 8300 audio jacks dont work?


If the on board audio jacks don't work, then go to your local computer store the online store that I like and buy a PCI Sound Card that goes into one of the PCI Slots on the desktop.

You can find one for less than $20. The link below will take you to the site. When it opens up just type PCI Sound Card in the white search box and press GO. When the search results return they show the most popular, sort the list down by Price Low to High. Whichever one you select read the details on it to make sure it will work with your operating system. That's the only criteria you need to worry about. PCI slots are universally standard, so if it's a pci it will fit in your pci slot.

Speakers work but crackle when in use with my dell 8300


Most likely this is because of a loose socket. Check to see if there's any dust or debris inside the audio socket(s). If cleaning it/them out doesn't work, then the socket is loose and the only way to fix the problem would be to get the sound-card repaired or buy a new sound-card.

It's my opinion that buying a new sound-card would be cheaper. You can find a good amount of them at this website. Simply navigate to Computer Hardware>Input Devices. Now on the left click, "Sound Cards." Watch out, though. There's a link labeled, "Sound Card Accessories." However, it doesn't lead you to the same page.

Let me know if I can assist you further or if I need to explain anything mentioned above in more detail.
