I have a Dell Dimension 8250 which I have formatted and re-installed Windows XP, my problem is I cannot play music as the audio driver appears not to be installed. There is a yellow asterix against the Multimedia Audio Controller in the Device Manager. I have tried downloading the Audio Driver from the Dell website to no avail and now I am out of ideas. Can you help please? Raph

Hello Dear,

Do you have the CD which comes with your desktop at the time of purchase. You can try to use that. It will install the driver automatically. You can try to install Download Chipset drivers instead of Directly Sound Drivers.

Hope it will help!

With regards

Once Windows is reinstalled on dell computers you have to use resource cd that came with it and reinstall network and sometimes couple other drivers like video or sound. If you dont have the resource cd you will have to get some how to dell.com maybe from your friends pc or if you have another one and just download it from there. Go to dell.com,click on support then on drivers and software and choose your system and you will find all drivers right there. Hope this helps.

When I start up my Dell Dimension 8250 (Windows


Sounds like the machine got stuck in the middle of a installation of windows. Best thing to do is to reinstall windows and let the cd format the hard drive, if it can't format the hard drive then the hard drive is bad and would need to be replaced.

NO sound after I formatted my dell dimension 8250


It is necessary to download the audio drivers from the dell website. www.dell.com. Type in your model number and it will show you a list of drivers. Windows often install a generic audio driver, but what you need is the one from the Dell website

I have a dell dimension 8250. I lost my sound, but


Either your soundcard driver has gotten corrupted or your soundcard has died. You can find both the driver & info on what card you have at www.dell.com. Click on the support link and you can either input your Dell Service Tag & get exact system info, or you can look it up using the system model #. The driver will be available for download. Try reinstalling an updated driver first. If that still doesn't work check your device manager to see if a soundcard is listed. If it is not then more than likely your card has died and will need to be replaced. Hope this helps.

Full system restore without disk for dell dimension 8250


The Dimension 8250 was not equipped by Dell with an automated re-image process. If you want a clean installation of Windows, it will require a manual installation from the Dell Windows Media, followed by installing the drivers from either the resource CD or internat download. Once completed, then reinstall all applications.
