XP & 2000 are separate OSes.

If ythe computer doesn't have audio out, there are a million places you can buy sound cards. Start with www.pricewatch.com

If you mean you have an audio out from the computer but you get no sound, then start with the following:-

Go to control Panel, Sound

Make sure that your audio output isn't muted, and that the computer recognizes your sound device. If it's muted un mute, or turn up the volume, if it sees your sound device make sure it's selected.

If it doesn't see your sound card (And you know the computer supports sound) then you need to visit www.dell.com, click on support, download, enter your asset tag, or model number and it will provide you with the require drivers and you should be all set..:-)

Hi i have creative sound blaster 5.1 surround sound. 2 rear, 2 front, center, and sub woofer. i am not getting sound out of the rear speakers. does this box have the capability of running all the speakers...


Your Dell supports up to 7.1 surround sound...I'm guessing you have something hooked up incorrectly. If not, make sure your drivers are up to date on the sound card.

I have dell ax210 -2 speakers....I dont have the driver cd....i want the software...


Your speakers don't require any special drivers. All they do is take the analog sound signal from the computer, amplify it and play it for you. If the sound hardware is working, all you need to do is plug in the speakers. The green signal plug goes into the output jack on the computer, and you need to connect the USB plug to an open port for power. Your computer needs driver software for its sound hardware, though, and if you're trying to solve a "no sound" problem, this may be the cause.

You don't give a make and model of your computer or sound card, so I can't give you a specific link. But you can get the drivers from the computer manufacturer's site. If you have a custom-built computer or are using a separate sound card, you'll need to get the sound drivers from the motherboard manufacturer (if it's integrated sound) or sound card manufacturer.

Dell-optiplex-360 no out- put sound in my system please tell me how to audio out put come


Hi,
The system , may not give you any sound due to the following points of failure.
1. Bad sound card or sound port
2. Windows speakers settings are on mute
3. Bad speakers .
You need to eliniate these points of failure on buy one.

You can run a simple fix form Dell for the problem, If the same doesnot resolve the issue , then you might have to replace the sound card if its add on, or replace the motherboard

FIX from Dell

Sound driver for dell speakers windows xp system


The Speakers themselves do not require a driver, but your sound card does. You should be able to get the drivers for your Sound Card from the Dell website Support Page (if you have a dell computer.)

NO SPEAKERS SOUND


Ok, there is a plug that looks green on the back of the unit. Match the color coding on the back of the unit and on the sound card. Make suire its plugged in the right hole because you got LINE IN- MIC and SPEAKER.. if its a 7.1 sound card then you probably got CENTER- RIGHT AND LEFT and so on.. check your cabling..

Unable to download games on my computer and if it is a driver issue unable to find a free driver for it


Hi

i think
Game is to heavy for your computer to run
Might need more free memory or your sound & Graphic card are not supporting this game. Before you download any aplication from any website make sure your computer meets the reguirements, Such as Operating system, sound and Graphic card and make sure you have enough Ram space to run the software.

try going to control panel, the system icon, hardware tab, divice manager, check to see if your sound card does not have a yellow ! icon next to it, if it does try right click, go to properties, and reinstalling it, it does help if the computer is hooked to the internet so it can find it automaticly over the internet.
