Try installing the latest audio driver.
You can download the device drivers from Dell WEB site, the support download page. Make sure you select your model desktop or laptop, better still, type in the Service Tag number, it is printed on the label on the bottom of the laptop and on the back or sides of a desktop. (If the Service Tag label is missing then go into the BIOS setting and on one of the BIOS pages, the Service Tag number will be displayed). This will open the page where the specific drivers for your model computer are located. Also make sure you select the Windows of the drivers for your Windows operating system.

Sound driver


You can download the sound driver for Dell OptiPlex GX280 PC Desktop by visiting Dell.com.

The sound card present is Analog Devices ADI 198x Integrated Audio. Driver available is for XP and 2000. This may or may not work with Vista or 7 but there is a good chance it will. IF not then you may need to search for custom drivers, call Dell support or move to a better system.

Analog Devices ADI 198x Integrated Audio

Dell e520 running Vista fully updated has no sound


Depending on the audio hardware configuration, you may have a hardware conflict.

If you have an expansion sound card (Usually a Soundblaster card in the slots below the video card) then you need to ensure the integrated audio in BIOS is DISABLED.

If you have no expansion card, then ensure the BIOS Audio device is ENABLED.

If integrated and no device found in Device Manager, turn it off in BIOS, reboot then reenable it and see if it is detected.

If issue still continues, try flashing the BIOS and see if that resolves. If no change, you may end up getting an expansion audio card or resintalling Windows to resolve.

Suddenly, my 521-vista informed me that "NO AUDIO DEVICE IS INSTALLED". I have no sound at all


May be caused by installation of a audio related application or driver (especially Creative apps).
Use System Restore (typ this in Start Search box and click on it when it appears at top. Then Restore to an earlier restore point.

Audio format


In control panel, make sure that the mic is properly configured in audio devices (They don't always get assigned properly) so that the correct device is set for recording.

You can test the mic in sound recorder (Just type sound on the search bar, it should appear in the list)
