I accidentally deleted my sound from my desktop

by Cindyjune / April 20, 2009 5:52 PM PDT

I have a rebuilt DELL so not sure what hardware I have. But there is no sound and under device manager for sound it says no device. How do I find the deleted program? I have used the trouble shooter and it can't find anything to repair. What is your recommended sound program if I need to reinstall.
Thank you so much for your help.

You have a Dell

Provided, you still use the original Dell audio as it came configured, just visit the Dell support website. Find the specs and details of your system by entering the model#, or product code, or sticker tag and find that way just what was installed. The audio portion will be explained as item "somenameXYZ-123" is present. You then find the proper drivers(and s/w install?) or if available use your Dell driver CD and re-install that way. You should also verify in the bios, that audio is enabled, if on-board audio.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
