Question about Dell Dimension 2400 PC Desktop
I finally figured out how to get in there, but I have no clue what is what. I want to install a new sound card for my surround sound. I don't know what the old sound card looks like or where I should put the new one. Help!! Thanks, Michelle
Your PC has what is called onboard sound. It doesn't have a seperate sound card; it's integrated into the mainboard. In order for you to add a sound card, you will have to go into the bios and disable it. To do this:
Once you're in, arrow down to Integrated Devices and press
enter. This should take you to another menu. Arrow down to sound and press enter. You should get 2 options; on or off. Set it to off. Then save and exit the setup menu. Let the PC boot and then shut it down. Now you can install a sound card. There are 3
PCI slots that run horizontally to the bottom of your case. Insert your card in the top one, lining up the slots with the slots in the board. Press firmly straight in. When you power the PC back on, Windows should recognize the new hardware and prompt you for the disk. Pu the disk in the CD-ROm drive and let it install. You should be ready to go after that.
