Having problems with your Dell Dimension 2400 PC Desktop ?
Dell Dimension 2400 audio issue, need help!
\015 I can't figure out how to get audio working on my PC. I have a Dell Dimension 2400 desktop, i recently reformatted the PC and through support.dell.com, I downloaded all drivers (video, chipset, etc.) that were necessary to download. I've done this before with Dell computers and have never had a problem.. I've downloaded the specific audio drivers but i get an error saying "The Audio driver files do not support your system hardware." I've done just about every precaution I could possibly think of to fix this problem but to no avail nothing seems to work. I'm 100% positive this is the right driver because it's through the support.dell.com drivers page and it's the right computer model. Any form of help is extremely appreciated for I've been trying to fix this thing for quite some time now and can not for the life of me figure out the problem.\015
If you want to dig further into drivers outside of Dell, you might try www.driverguide.com You have to create an account there (it's free). They have a large selection of drivers for lots of manufacturers and OS's. Please read all the comments or notes about them before downloading one. You sometimes have to be generic in searching, but start with the manufacturer and then the model (I suggest only typing in the numbers from the model first) of your sound card and/or motherboard. I can't guarantee they'll have it, but they might.
Jeffiorio, Well it appears that you have done everything correct. However for this particular model, there are at least 3 different audio drivers available. I have ran into this problem myself within my shop a time or two before.Try one of these it will be correct for your PC.
