Having problems with your Dell Dimension 3100 PC Desktop ?

My dell desktop can't give me sound. - Dell Dimension 3100 PC Desktop


Answers :

I agree with Hector above. Please be a bit more specific to the problem.

Some possible solutions:

If you reformatted the system recently, there is a specific order to loading the drivers. If you don't follow that order, the sound won't work and you will need to reformat and load the drivers in the order below.

I had the same problem formatting 5 like systems and sound only worked on one of them. After countless reloads, I called Dell support who alerted me to this problem.

Here is the order:
1-desktop system software (optional)
2-Intel Chipset Software
3-Video Drivers
4-Sigmatel driver (or sound driver)
5-Network driver

Another issue could be that someone muted your speakers. If the following icon in the tray looks like this,

left click on it and this menu will appear:

Uncheck MUTE and click anywhere on the desktop.

If the icon isn't even there, that's for another topic, for another day.
