Hi there Guys and Gals

 

Today my audio started to sound like a robot every now and then. I have a Dell Inspiron 3847 is there any way to see if the sound card it is about to die

What kind of sound card did you install in this computer? If you think that your sound card is going bad, just take it out because these little Dell computers really don't need an after market sound card, they work fine with the internal DAC.

So then you have no sound card? If you have no sound card then that answers your question from the original post, your sound card is not about to die if you have no sound card.

 

The problem obviously lies elsewhere if you have no sound card.
