NO audio output is installed!!!

1) Windows won't have the audio driver. Reinstalling from the Windows disk is futile.

How does this happen? How does the audio driver file seemingly disappear?
Windows...........ya gotta' love it.

Windows had a 'barin f@rt', and lost the address to the audio driver file.

2) Uninstalled audio driver.
This really is an excellent approach, but only works some of the time.
Kind of 'slaps Windows around' a little bit.

{YOU........Windows..............WHERE is my audio driver file? }

So there is two strikes down.
No big deal really.

Just download AND install the audio driver needed.

Scroll down a little. Click on the blue Down Arrow next to -
Audio (4)

Here you see in the list, the audio driver files listed.

IMHO you have the wrong numbers.

As you can see the first file listed is version - (A02)

The second audio driver file listed is (A00)

As you can see you need the first audio driver file listed.
It is for Windows Vista, and both the 32-bit version, and 64-bit version.

Go to the right of, and click on the blue Down Arrow.
(Or Download File in blue)

Make SURE there is a Green dot in the small circle, to the left of
Single-file download

Click on Continue in the blue oval 'button'.

A small window will come up -
Opening REALTEK_ALC888-HD-AUDIO-FOR-_A02_R19847...

Click on Save File.

A small download window will come up.
Allow the file to download all the way, then DOUBLE-click on it.

At the bottom of the next 3 small windows, click on Next, Next, and Finish.

(At the second small window, DO NOT change anything.
Windows knows where to put the audio driver file.
Just click on Next)

When finished restart your computer.

If you do not have the Volume icon in the taskbar (System tray at bottom of screen -Right), let me know.
I'll detail how to get it back.

(Looks like a Speaker icon)

IF, this does NOT bring the sound back, you need to install a sound card.

Where do i find the sound card?

Ummm, you don't.

Just the name they use to identify the audio portion of the computer.
(Dell / Microsoft)

To explain;

Chip and Chipset are slang terms for I.C.
Integrated Circuit,

The Chip, or Chipset (You can use either word), for sound; is the audio chipset.

If the audio chipset is mounted (Soldered) to a Printed Circuit Board, or also known as Card; it is a Soundcard.

Removable, therefore replaceable.

If the audio chipset is soldered directly to the motherboard; it is Integrated Audio, and not replaceable. (At least not easily)

The Dell Optiplex 360 Desktop PC uses Integrated Audio.

If indeed you do have a Soundcard installed, it would be mounted in a PCI slot on the motherboard, and it's outside bracket would be in an expansion slot, in the metal framework of the computer case.

There are four such slots shown, in the empty Dell Optiplex 360 Small Mini, computer case shown above. They are at the bottom.
This is an example of a Soundcard,

Perhaps you had no audio, went into Device Manager, and saw NO Device, listed.
This means Windoze lost the Drivers for the audio chipset.

Driver: Small piece of software that allows the Operating System to communicate with a device

Do not know what the O/S is.
The audio chipset is the device.

Post what version of Windows you are using.

In the meantime I'll use Windows Vista 32-bit as an example, as this is what the computer was supposed to come out with;

Dell Support > Optiplex 360 > Drivers & Downloads page,

The page automatically comes up with Windows Vista 32-bit, drivers; listed.
If you use a different O/S, click on the blue Down Arrow, to the right side of the box that has Microsoft Windows Vista 32-bit, in it.
(Under the blue Operating System subheading)

Here we see only 1 Audio file listed.
Click on the blue down arrow to the left of - Audio (1)
Click right on the blue name - Analog Devices - Driver

Now click on the blue - Download File - to the left of -
Update package for Microsoft Windows

Make sure there is a Green dot in the small circle, to the left of -
Download and save the file.
Then click on Continue in the blue oval.

[If there isn't a green dot, click in the empty circle ]

(Suggest install it yourself. Automatic features have a tendency to scr-ew up)

Green dot needs to be in small circle to the left of -
Single-file download.
Click on Continue.

A small window will come up on the right -
Opening DRVR_WIN_R216290.EXE

Click on Save File

Another small window will come up on the left.
Allow the file to download all the way, then DOUBLE-click right on the file name.

(If somehow a Microsoft 'squawk box' comes up, ignore it.
"Warning this software does not have a digital certificate, ya-da, ya-da. Just click on OK. It is Okay.

At the bottom of the next 3 small windows, click on Next, Next, and Finish.
Close all windows,restart your computer if not asked to do so.

Audio output device

Okay, then reinstall the drivers.

If that doesn't do it, then you need to install a Sound Card.
This is because the audio chipset on the motherboard is bad.

Go to Device Manager, and reinstall?
Works sometimes, sometimes not.

Go to eMachines Support, download, AND install the drivers.
This DOES work.

{ If it doesn't, as said the audio chipset on the motherboard is bad }

See where it states -
Need to know the hardware on your system to install the right driver?
Click on the -
Download Hardware Vendor Detection Utility

This IS NOT going to automatically download the audio driver you need.
It is going to tell you what audio chipset vendor you have, for your motherboard.

With this information you can choose between the two Audio driver files listed, and choose the correct one.

See which one you need?
Version, Or, 6.10.5405.0 ?

Go to back to the driver page, and click on the appropriate driver.
A small window will come up on the right.
Click on Save File.

A small window will come up on the left.
At the top of this window tells you where the file will download to.
It may have Desktop, or Documents, or Downloads, in the wording.

Desktop: The driver file will be on your desktop screen.

Documents: Click on the Windows logo button, (Start), and then on Documents.

Downloads: Click on the Windows logo button, then on Documents.
Now click on Downloads.

When you see the driver file, DOUBLE-click on it.
In the next three small windows click on Next, Next, and Finish.

If you are not asked to restart your computer, close all windows, go back to your desktop screen.
Restart your computer.

(Windows logo button, Restart)

No joy when Windows loads back up?
You need a Sound Card.

One example,

[ The eMachines T5224 Desktop PC uses an Intel D945GCL motherboard,

Scroll down a little to the larger photo.
If one of the long white PCI expansion slots are open, you can install the above Sound Card in it.

If not, you can use the short Black PCI-E X1 connector,
BELOW the long white PCI slots.

Instead of a PCI sound card, use a PCI-Express x1 sound card,

DO NOT forget to unplug the computer from power, and FOLLOW Anti-Static Precautions BEFORE reaching inside the computer, AND before taking that Sound Card out of it's anti-static bag, or carton.

Do not know what Anti-Static Precautions are?

No audio on dell gx260 (multimedia audio control) please help me

Hello Suresh.

I think I know what it is you are needing.

Your computer says no audio mixer or device is installed.

You need to go to this website.

They have the sound drivers that you need.

This link is for audio driver for the for the onboard audio subsystem in the Optiplex gx line.

They utilize the realtek chipset, and as such this is the linked place for their download.
Just select the operating system, and whether you want it to be an executable version of the file( reccomended), or a zip file version.

Download the file, and install it, and then REBOOT!

Rebooting is required, as it turns on the Windows audio service, and enables the audio device itself.

I hope this helps you get your audio working again.

Good luck to you, and have a good day.

I have an asus mother board no. P5GC/MX-1333 But Sound Driver not avalabel,Pl.send Sound Driver.

If it is an ONBOARD SOUND DRIVER (not a sound CARD installed into a PCI slot on MOBO)
go to ASUS website and download CHIPSET drivers (these contain the onboard sound, onboard video, etc.) make sure you get the right one which matches YOUR CHIPSET.
google "EVEREST HOME EDITION, LAST FREE VERSION, 321" and download it. RUN IT>
it will identify your CHIPSET and everything else.
also, ASUS may have on online tool to identify your CHIPSET.

Sound card wont play root media files

Hi Hughdog
well, Biostar mobos are know for a lot issues, but depending too, on the OS, windows XP I presume, go on safe mode, and uninstall all audio drivers, and disable on the BIOS audio. then start the PC, and install the audio card. or if is a internal audio reenable again, redetec the drivers, and install them according to the CD and drivers. you should see the play device now and play music correctly.
good luck
