Hey mtyson,

Many newer computers may not necessarily feature a dedicated sound card, and will instead have one that is integrated into the motherboard itself. If your computer appears to be missing important features such as this, I would strongly suggest contacting the computer manufacturer or the retail location where you purchased your PC for further assistance. Either one of these parties should be able to provide you with more information regarding your computer's specifications, and provide you with suggestions on how to proceed if necessary.

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron

Set up a budget for how much U wish to spend and then start doing your research and price comparisons. After the purchase you go into your device manager and disable the old audio in the computer , turn off unit and install the new audio card in the pci slot. Reboot and install the driver when called for by the OS.

Should I return my HP 500-214 due to squeaking?


No, not all new computers make this squeaking sound. It may be a defect of one of the internal components of the machine, and it may be present in all of those same models. You could try to replace it one more time, and then talk to Best Buy about using the gift card to buy a different computer model.

Just trying to find out whether this computer will take a PCI sound card.


Hi,
The this particular model of the computer has one spare PCI express slot , where an external audio card can be put in. Open the the system tower and look for an empty black slot on the motherboard.

You can purchase a PCI express sound card .

No sound on my dell 8400


Simply go to 'Start -> Control Panel -> Administrative tools -> Computer management -> Device manager'. Now find here 'Sound, video and game controllers', right-click on your sound device and select 'Properties'.

Now click 'Driver' tab and check that what driver is currently installed and it is working properly or not...

Update the audio driver now still the device says it is working properly because sometime the driver might be causing this problem.

Don't forget to restart you laptop after successfully installed new driver.

If any anonymous error/problem occurs in troubleshooting, get reliable support for Your laptop at http://www.vtechsquad.com/dell-support/

Computer: Sony Desktop Model: PCG-242M. Computer does not start, with the inclusion hear one long beep and two short beeps. What is the problem?


Based on what you have presented...
1 long 2 short - (Video Controller Failure or faulty add-on card

Do you have an installed video card? Does the unit have a built in Card? (In other words part of the mother board?)

If you have an installed card check that it is not loose... If it is still not functioning (and)

If your unit also has a built in video card that is disabled... go to the BIOS and enable it... see if your unit will boot up...

If the video card is not loose and you do not have a built in card... you may want to see if you know someone with an extra card to loan... or purchase a new one....

There is no sound card in my computer..no sound is coming from my speakers...can u help me?


If you do not have a built-in sound card on the motherboard then you need to purchase a sound card and install it in one of the expansion slots in the desktop computer.

Does Dell model CX260 desktop have a sound card pc slot, or doesn't need one?


if the back of the computer has 3 jacks colored either red, blue, pink, or green, then it has a built in sound card.if not, then it requires a sound card. You can purchase a usb sound card if you are not comfortable installing a sound card inside a pc.

New Sound Card is not working.


Ted, the first thing you should do is go into your computer's BIOS and disable the built-in sound card. Once you do that, go back to your device manager and if the onboard sound card still appears there remove or disable it. Then reboot and your new sound card should be recognized and you can install drivers and begin using it.

I tried to install a fisher price program for my kids, it says Fatal error no sound card detected and game cannot be used without sound card, I am sure I must have a sound card, I can hear CDs from my PC,...


How old is your computer?

It may be that the on board sound your computer has does not meet the minimum requirements of the Fisher Price program.

The program should list on the back or side the minimum requirements. If your computer doesn't meet the sound guidelines, it more than likely will just not play.

If not, sound cards can be purchased for relatively little money and are easy to install.

Good luck and happy holidays!

Video & sound problem


On your Dell computer is a service tag. Contact dell with that number and they will tell you what card is installed in that computer.

XPS usually contain either an ATI or an NVidia card. Thats about all I know. I had to replace one with a newer video a few months ago for a client of mine because Dell didn't support the machine and couldn't pinpoint the model number of card. I know on the website there are about 4 to 6 of them to choose from.
