if your computer came with a motherboard disc the sound drivers could be on it click start control panel administrive tools computer management device manager scroll to sound video and game controllers you might see a yellow question exclamation mark? ! or a red X Right click to reinstall drivers if you dont have a disk with the drivers you will have to download them
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.
The sound card is on the mother board, but you can buy a PCI sound card and install it in one of the empty whit slots on the mother board.
I am not sure but you may need to dissable the onboard sound before you install the add in replacement sound card.
You can ask dell support if you need to do this, [email protected]
Good luck. I hope this helps. Have a good day.
I have an older ATI turner as well and the older cards do not work too well with Windows Xp or Vista. You may be able to find a driver that works by performing a Google search for it, otherwise the cards are very inexpensive right now and you can pick up a new one, probably with HD, for less than $100.
Quite likely, drivers for the audio controller is missing/not installed.
You did not give any info on the Operating System you installed and the sound card in question; Onboard or PCI Sound Card. I am assuming you have Windows XP or 2000 and using the builtin/onboard sound controller.
If this is correct, you will need to download and install ADI Onboard Sound Driver (Windows 2000/XP) - http://ftp.us.dell.com/audio/R94481.EXE
