MY DELL PC HAVE SOUND DRIVERS WHICH ARE NOT WORKING AND ONCE I INSTALL NEW SOUND DRIVER THEY SOUND AT A VERY LOW VOICE EVEN WHEN THE VOLUME IS ADJUSTE TO THE HIGHEST


Hi antonykionyo

DELL OPTIPLEX GX60 DESKTOP PC AUDIO/SOUND DRIVER

You don't say which Operating System you use, so my answer will be presented in general, Windows terms. If yours is a non-Windows Operating System, consider applying the logic and principles involved here to your own Operating System and, if in doubt, please feel free to add a Comment or Clarification to this Question, including information about your Operating System.

Check the status of the Audio Device and the Audio Driver in Device Manager.

Start > (My) Computer > (System Properties) View System Settings > Device Manager

This will tell you if the Audio/Sound Device is installed and functioning properly and if the Audio/Sound Driver is installed properly. If a red 'x' or a yellow question or exclamation mark appears next to the Audio/Sound Device, then there is probably a settings anomaly, fault, error or conflict with the Audio Device and/or its Driver.

AUDIO DEVICE SETTINGS
For your Audio/Sound Device to function properly, it must be set as the Default Device:

Start > Control Panel > (Hardware and Sound) Sounds Speech and Audio Devices > Sounds and Audio Devices > (Manage Audio Devices) Audio > click on the Drop Down Menu to the right of "Sound Playback - Default Device" (preferred Default Playback Device) > select "ADI 198x Integrated Audio" > Apply > OK > Restart computer.

AUDIO/SOUND DRIVER PROBLEMS
Re-install the correct Audio/Sound Driver that relates to both the Audio/Sound Device (ADI 198x Integrated Audio) and your Operating System, then restart the computer. Install the Audio/Sound Driver either from the Dell Drivers and Utilities CD or from the official Dell support website here:

http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/download.aspx?c=us&cs=19&l=en&s=dhs&releaseid=R71579&SystemID=PLX_PNT_CEL_GX60&servicetag=&os=WW1&osl=en&deviceid=2430&devlib=0&typecnt=0&vercnt=3&catid=-1&impid=-1&formatcnt=0&libid=3&typeid=-1&dateid=-1&formatid=-1&source=-1&fileid=92933

If your Operating System is not the original Windows 2000 or Windows XP for which this PC was designed, then it is highly probable that no Audio/Sound Driver exists for that Operating System.

If you are committed to both this PC and an unsupported Operating System but all the other Devices and their Drivers are functioning normally except the Audio Device or you are using Win 2000 or Win XP but the Audio/Sound Problem remains unsolvable (faulty Audio/Sound Chip), then consider buying and installing either an internal 5.1, 7.1 or 8.1 PCI Sound Card or an external USB Sound Card that is pre-confirmed as being compatible with your Operating System. They can all be inexpensive. See examples here:

http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=5.1+7.1+8.1+pci+soundcard&x=5&y=17

I hope this helps.

Check device manager if the Audio device is detected.

Check Audio device has mark like this ! - i suggest uninstall / reinstall the audio device driver. download the driver from dellsupport.com drivers and download page.

If the audio device has ? mark it means that computer not able to recognize the audio hardware. if you are using audio onboard replace motherboard. if the audio has expansion card reseat the card then try again. if all fails then try a different audio card if passed then the audio card is faulty. if all fails using a different audio card it means the motherboard slot is faulty. replace mobo.

I am troubleshooting a dell Optiplex Gx 270 desktop computer that initially had a yellow question mark in the device manager for the Multimedia audio contrroller and still produces no audio. I dowloaded...


Obvious things - make sure that your speakers are connected - desktops don't generally have internal speakers - and make sure the volume is turned on/up or is not muted. Go to settings>Control Panel>sounds/audio devices.

If all looks ok, go back into device manager and right click the audio controller and delete it. Then reboot the computer. It will automatically reinstall on reboot.

No audio device


The "No Audio Device Error" message is usually displayed by your computer when it does not detect any properly working audio device attached to it. You will not hear any sound from your computer when this message appears. Only the internal speaker of the computer can provide you bleeping sounds.
When this message appears on your screen, you will need to first check your computer's BIOS and ensure that the audio is set to "auto" mode. You should also check if you have installed the correct drivers needed by the audio device attached to your computer in order for it to work properly.
Audio Device Drivers The most frequent cause of this problem is an incorrect audio device driver that has been installed by the user. In order to double check if your driver matches your device, refer to the user's manual that came with it to look for its type and specifications. The audio device driver for an onboard device should be provided along with the chipset drivers in the CD that accompanies the motherboard.
Use the Device Manager You can use the device manager to ascertain if the audio device drivers are installed properly. To go to the device manager, right click on the My Computer icon, then click Properties, click on the Hardware tab and then Device Manager. If any device is marked with a yellow question mark, it is an indication that the required drivers are missing. It should be instantly clear if the audio device is truant.
Loose Connections on the Motherboard You can open your computer and directly look at the information written on the audio device itself. While doing this, make it a point to check all connections by ensuring that everything is properly plugged in its correct place. Sometimes, this error is also caused by loose connections and a sound card that has been improperly attached to the PC.
You can download the latest updated drivers from the manufacturer's website, either from your own computer or another. If you have used another computer, you can use a data storage device to bring the drivers to your machine and execute the software installer from there. Ensure that the driver you have downloaded is compatible with the operating system installed on your machine.
Is Your Audio Device Defective? If problems with your audio device still persist, you can opt to test the audio device on a different machine just to see if it's in good working condition. If it still doesn't work on a different machine, you have a defective audio device. You will need to get it replaced if it is under warranty or purchase a brand new one. Remember that you should buy the audio device that is compatible with your motherboard. In addition, don't forget to ask for the updated software drivers of the audio device

The sound on my computer has suddenly stopped working, and I have no idea why. When I click on ''Sound and Audio Devices'' on the Control Panel, it says ''No Audio Device''. The volume icon has also...


That happened to my Laptop as well and all I did is reinstalled the audio driver that is included in the package and it actually worked with no problem. If in that case is still happening, try to update the driver after reinstalling it.

My audio device is not installed


Without any more details on the computer or audio device I can only suggest you lookup the model number on your audio device and either go to the manufacturer's website and download the driver. Otherwise do a Google search for the model number and you will discover who makes your audio device and will point you to the driver download.

No Audio Device


Make sure the audio device is plugged in properly, if it is then see if you still have the installation disk from your audio device. If you dont, maybe you can see if somebody has posted a crack of it on any download sites. Hope I helped!
