I have a Dell Dimension E510 with Windows XP (SP3). Recently the audio stopped working. I get no sound from my speakers (SB Audigy 2 ZS sound card and Altec Lansing speakers) or from my headphones using the jack on the system unit itself. It doesnít matter what audio source I use: CDís, YouTube, Pandora, etc. Device Manager lists my sound card. I ran something called Mr. Fixit from Microsoft and it said there was nothing to fix. All my volume controls (and there are several) are set at mid point or higher. I updated the BIOS and that did nothing. I tried a system restore to five weeks earlier and it said there was nothing to restore.
Iím out of ideas. What else can I try? Are there other diagnostics I can run? Thanks.
