i have a Dell dimension 4800 with a soundmax integrated digital audio. The sound is no longer working on my computer. I tried the speakers on another computer and they work fine. Is there any way to fix this problem with the integrated audio?

Hi, I would like you to open device manager and see if your audio device has a driver installed.

You can open Device Manager by double-clicking on the System icon in Control Panel, and choosing the Device Manager tab. It is also accessible by right-clicking on My Computer, selecting Properties, and selecting the Device Manager tab.

Lets get the obvious out of the way, are there any drivers in device manager with a big yellow ? mark next to it? If so please install the drivers on them.

I did everything that was suggested in this thread about: If I had no sound in my computer. I have no ! points on device managers I still reloaded the drivers, but still have no sound in any port of the computer nor do I hear any sounds at all. Someone told me it was my sound card- probably came loose, but looking inside I'm not sure what to look for to determine if it is indeed loose so I could snap it back in tightly. I tried to trace the sound plug in the rear to where it goes and see nothing, the plug is encased inside a metal frame and I don't see where it goes, I don't see where the sound card is Any suggestions?

In the BIOS there can be an audio setting. Not all BIOSs have this but it can't hurt to check.
