It contains the list of the beep codes for dell dimension 2400.

There is also a guide on how and what to troubleshoot. Motherboards use beep codes to indicate what error might caused the system to malfunction.

SOURCE: sound windows xp dimension 3000

Replaced hardrive in a Dimension 3000, installed Windows XP Professional and have no sound. I go to control panel and the Sounds and Audio devices are grayed out saying No audio device installed. I tried to install the driver from Dell and I receive a message during setup that the Audio driver does not suport your computer hardware. There is only one driver and it is the R94481.exe. I did a diagnostics and the sound passed the test for the 8 tones. Other than that, I have no sound.

SOURCE: soundcard

Hey there, the HP bios is pretty smart - it should automatically detect a new sound card and switch off the internal one when installed - alternatively you can go to the 'system devices' panel and disable it in the software as well.
hope this helps
cheers

SOURCE: Dell Dimension 5150 no sound - please help

You should be able to download the original driver files from Dell Support Drivers & Downloads.

However, this may be worth a try:
Go to Start --> Run, and type in services.msc.

A window will pop up with a list of services. Scroll down to Windows Audio. Right-click
and click on Properties.
Make sure that "Startup type" is set to automatic. Also, make sure, under "Service
status," start is selected.
I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.
If I've managed to answer your question or solve a problem, please take a moment to kindly rate this post....thanks!

This tutorial will guide you through the process of updating your hardware driver. If you have the recovery disk from dell, you will have on it a copy of the original drivers for your sound device. See also this dell support article.

How do I test the Sound card when the Control Panel sound states no audio device?


You should check in Device Manager to see if your audio driver is installed and working properly. If not, reload it. You could also check in the BIOS setup to see if the onboard audio has been disabled. There is also a possibility that the onboard audio has failed. You can order a sound board to install in the nachine to restore audio capability. Just disable the onboard audio in the BIOS, install the card and load the drivers supplied with the card. Hook your speaker to the jacks on the new card and you're back in action.

I can't install the audio driver. it shows "install Realtek HD audio driver failure".so what I can do now..plz help me...:(


Hello
Im guessing your using a sound card? Not onboard sound.You need to disable your motherboard sound or onboard sound in the system bios.
Hit the delete key while booting up or the f 12 key.
Once your at the main bios screen find the audio or system audio and disable it.Then it save and exit.Pc will reboot..once its started you should be able to install your sound card drivers.

Does your computer have sound on the motherboard if it does you will have to go into the bios and disable the onboard sound before installing the add on sound card then windows will find it upon the next startup.

Finding a sound card for my gateway laptop to be able to record audio


A sound card is a piece of hardware, and if not included with your laptop, you need to buy one and install it.

It is possible that you have a sound card, but it might be disabled in the BIOS. You would need to restart your computer, and enter the BIOS setup program to check if you have a sound card that is disabled.

You can go to gateway website and their website will tell you which hardware is installed

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
