Re: Mystery... Sound issue - not a plug missing....

Well, it could be a bum audio card... You might try reseating it in its slot. Anyways power off, unplug and press/hold power button on tower before doing any work inside the case. emoticon.Wink.title

Then try uninstalling the audio card in Device Manager and then reboot. Then see if you can install the fresh download of the latest driver.

If none of that helps, reboot from the Windows DVD and press F8 before Windows starts to load. Choose the "repair my computer" option from the menu and follow the prompts to run a Repair. And if you're lucky...

Unless it's a bum card, Dell Tech Support is probably going to tell you to reinstall Windows...
