Re: No Sound Dell Dimension 3000?
Any chance you have a PCI sound card instead of the standard integrated audio on the motherboard? If you do, the speakers plug into a card in a PCI slot near the bottom; integrated jacks are near the middle of the tower.
Don't know what sound options came with the 3000, but if it is a sound card you'd need to identify which one it is to see if you can get drivers for it. Dell often don't list those drivers on the site; they'd be on their own CD.
Another thing to check: if it is the integrated audio, go into your BIOS (system setup) and make sure the onboard audio controller is enabled (details for the 3000 below):
