Having problems with your Dell GX520 PC Desktop ?

I bought a used GX520 and the volume does not work. There is no volume icon on the lower right corner. Under sounds and audio devices it says ''no audio device'', and I can't change anything. I own another of the same comp. and the sound works great on it. Under sounds and audio devices it says that it is using ''SoundMAX Digital Audio'' and I have all options available to change the levels. In my new computer, it has an option to use SoundMAX Digital Audio but I cannot change it. Any suggestion


Answers :

If it says no audio device then the computer is not recognizing the "soundmax" sound card. you either need to go online to the soundmax website, search for updated drivers, find your version of theyre soundcard (soundmax digital audio) and download the new drivers. then go back to device manager, find the soundcard under sounds and audio devices, right click and chose properties, click the driver tab and choose update driver. it should then prompt you for the location of the driver at which point you enter the location of where you saved the driver you downloaded off theyre website.

Sounds like ( no pun intended) your missing the audio drivers or controllers--right-click on MY COMPUTER then PROPERTIES then HARDWARE then DEVICE MANAGER and check if there are any yellow or red "X"s next to anything (you sound driver) right click and select update driver (you need to be connected to the internet)
