Having problems with your Dell Dimension 3100 PC Desktop ?

I have a Dell Dimension 3100 and there is no sound. the drivers have been re-installed twice. Help!


Answers :

If the little speaker icon appears on the taskbar by the clock verify that it is not muted and that the volume slider is up. Connect headphones or earbuds to the front headphone jack and see if you have sound there. If so then verify your speakers are plugged in the back of the PC (green jack) and they are plugged in to AC power (if powered) and that they are on.
