I would say check and see thru your Device Manager what audio chipset your mainboard has. Depending on the Operating System, most of the time you can just remove it from device manager by right clicking on the specific audio device and left click uninstall.(Win Vista,7,8 may give you the option to uninstall the driver... This box is unchecked and it does NOT need to be checked as, you are trying to re-install the driver.) After the uninstall is done right click on any other hardware and select scan computer for hardware changes. It SHOULD find your chipset and re-install the driver. Please note if it asks for ANY file to complete installation then your driver is corrupt and you will need to download an updated driver.

IF everything re-installs and you still do not have sound, try bringing up your sound options and make sure that your Wave and PC sound aren't muted or turned all the way down. Hope this helps.

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.

Can you send a link Acer aspire 4315 ms2220 for me, i need vga & sound driver

Acer = Manufacturer name
Aspire = Model name
4315 = Model number

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

You didn't state the O/S.
The graphics chipset (VGA), and the audio chipset (Sound), are the devices in question.

Note there are two Audio drivers listed, (Sound), and (Scroll down), three VGA drivers listed.

The first audio driver is for an Azalia audio chipset. It is ALSO for Windows XP (Home or Pro)

The second audio driver listed is for a Realtek audio chipset, and is for Windows Vista.

Got XP or Vista? Choice here is easy.

Let's say you are running Windows XP. You would click on the blue -
Audio Driver to the left of Azalia.

A small window will come up on the right -

Make sure the small circle to the left of Save File, has a green dot in it. If not left-click in the empty circle to the left of Save File.
Now go to the bottom of the small window, and click on OK.

Another small window will come up on the left. Allow the file to fully download. Then DOUBLE-click right on the file name.

Go to the left side, and click on - Extract all files.
In the files that are 'unzipped' look for one with .exe on the end, or Installer. DOUBLE-click on it.

The top VGA driver file (Intel is for Windows XP.
It is the -> oldest Windows XP VGA driver available.
Installing the newer driver MAY NOT work.
Installing the older VGA driver may be the way to go.

The newer VGA driver for Windows XP is the second one down.

The last VGA driver listed (Intel also) is for Windows Vista.

Use the same procedure for the VGA driver file, as you did for the Audio driver file.

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

[It may be a different setup AFTER you DOUBLE-click on the file name, when it has downloaded to the second small window on the left.
If so tell me what you see ]

I have no sound coming from my pc speakers

First of check you havent mutted anything in the sound icon in the control panel.

If not then its most likely your sound card itself is the problem, if the sound card is built onto the motherboard disable it in the bios, if it is a seperate expansion card then check its in the slot properly, in both cases it would probably be wise to invest in a new one.

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
