This model came with an on board sound card that is pretty good and runs with an AC97 realteck driver ..If you want to insert another card cause the on board one is not functional anymore ..than any sound card on a pci will fit... but if you are not sure why your card is not working try to install the driver again first ...and check the volumes and the speakers..cause the card that is already on the board is a great one and it has even possibility to be configured for a 3 exit ( 5+1 ) surround ...all you have is to modify the exits functions from the sound manager ..Just click on sound manager ..than speaker configuration and choose the 5+1 mode...you will see that the front rear and sub-woofer will take place in the black ..green and pink ..
Here is the driver you need if you really do not want to change it

just try to install this driver if you are running windows Xp and see if this was teh problem ..
If you really wan t to install a sound card ...just buy a PCI bassed sound card and follow this instructions to install it ..its really easy ...

you have no high speed ports installed on your computer. what you have is USB 1.0. you can however purchase a high speed USB pci card (usb 2.0) and install it in your computer to get faster transfer speeds.

The sound card is on the mother board, but you can buy a PCI sound card and install it in one of the empty whit slots on the mother board.
I am not sure but you may need to dissable the onboard sound before you install the add in replacement sound card.
You can ask dell support if you need to do this, www.support.dell@dell.com
Good luck. I hope this helps. Have a good day.

Replacing a sound card for a dell dimension 3000


Check if your PC has a PCI slot. It is this white strip on you motherboard. Go to your PC shop and ask for a PCI sound card. Just insert it and install the Drivers CD. If it doesn't, You may have the old ISA slot and stores may not be available of any ISA sound card. But dont worry, generally all computers starting from pentium 2 has a PCI slot. You may worry only if your computer is as old as the 486 computers.

Is the video card built into the motherboard? If not you can try replacing just the video card to see if that works. Otherwise I am afraid you may have to replace the motherboard.
