Today guy from DELL technical support came to my workplace and tried to resolve the problem I am having. He installed new motherboard, re-installed sound drives couple of times... NO LUCK
The only option I now have is re-format the hard drive and re-install Windows XP (service guy suggestion).
It would take days to wipe out my Windows, and install it back together with all programs I currently have on my system. There should be another way.
Unbelievable, it is 21 Century and DELL does not have any troubleshooting tools!!!
Didn't I say in the previous post that I have DELL technician come over to my place to help me with the “no sound” problem (with no luck though). He tried everything.
I do not have speakers, I use headphones. In order to hear headphone sound you need to adjust volume. One way to do it is through “Volume Control”, but I cannot get there (I am getting “There are no active mixer devices available”).
My Service Tag: 6LB2T71
Audio is enabled in BIOS.
If I boot to utility partition diagnostics I am hearing sound in audio test.
But I do not have an audio device in XP and I re-installed/uninstalled/installed audio drivers for my OptiPlex GX280 tens of times - does not help.
