Question about Dell Latitude C610 Notebook
I think i burnt out my sound card, i tried to hook up some desktop speakers and when i plugged them in it made a eerrrrr sound, and now my volume controle is gon and it wont stop making the sound unless i plugg in the speaker that messed it up., just wondering if i can fix it myself or if i have to take it in somewhere.
This could just be a simple driver glitch. Open the device manager, uninstall the sound drivers, then reboot. The machine will find the sound card and reinstall the drivers automatically. Then you may need to readjust the sound settings. If this doesn't work, then then sound card is gone. On these models, the sound card is built into the motherboard. It can be changed, but takes a fairly high amount of technical skill and knowledge. Having the card changed on the C610 can be more expensive than replacing the motherboard. This being an older unit, you can find motherboards on Ebay at a fairly cheap price. Try the driver reload first, and let me know.
