Try uninstalling the driver and then reinstall it back into the system. This may clear this issue up.

I have a dell dimension 3000. I want to add a 2nd monitor. I believe the video is integrated, Does the unit have a slot to add a video card. What kind of card should be added?


The Dimension 3000 Springdale G chipset supports AGP 8X cards, integrated video, integrated audio, ICH5, 533/800 MHz FSB, dual channel DDR 333/400 memory, integrated Serial ATA, and the Intel Pentium 4 Prescott.
The AGP 8X slot refers to Advanced Graphics Port. You can add a AGP video card if you motherboard has that slot. Usually that slot is encased by a green plastic enclosure .

Dell 8400 - no sound from speakers? Worked in the past.


Should have the hardware driver "soundmax integrated digital audio" Check in device manager and make sure that is what is says under sound, video, and game controllers. If not then you need a audio driver. Go to support.dell.com and put in your service tag and down load the audio.

Another tip is trying to plug your speakers into the front headphone jack. if they work it might be a bad jack in the back.

Make sure the speakers are good and getting power. You can try them on a nother computer or even mp3 player.

Volumn not working after moving to another room.


Make sure the speakers are connected to the correct jack (Speaker out Green, Mic In Pink)

Make sure speakers are plugged in and turned on.

If you have integrated audio built in to the motherboard, make sure Audio is enabled in the BIOS. If you have a soundblaster or other 3rd party Audio card installed in the motherboard expansion slot, then make sure integrated audio is OFF in the BIOS.

Download and reinstall sound card drivers from support.dell.com

Will not work on my new dell computer


I'm not familiar with this speaker. Your sound card has a very low output which requires amplified speakers, so if the Bostons don't have an internal amplifier you won't be able to hear them.

Sound Problems


To make it easy for you this is the default audio driver for Dimension 2400 systems. Click on this link ---> http://support.dell.com/support/topics/global.aspx/support/downloads/en/downloads_splash?c=us&l=en&s=gen&~mode=popup&file=122481
this would install your integrated audio driver for your system.
Let me know if this resolved this issue.

Audio


If the device is not installed, try checking the device driver on device manager. Right click on my computer ---> manage --> click on device manager -->  look for sound, video and game controllers --> expand the category and you should be seeing soundmax integrated digital audio below it. If it doesn't appear, go this website to download your driver for the audio --- > http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/download.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=gen&releaseid=R94481&SystemID=DIM_CEL_3000&servicetag=&os=WW1&osl=en&deviceid=2430&devlib=0&typecnt=0&vercnt=3&catid=-1&impid=-1&formatcnt=1&libid=3&fileid=122481
Inform me if this quick fix doesn't work.
