I need to know what the sound card is with the Dell Inspiron 580 Desktop PC. It produces horrible sound and I want to use my old Boston Digital BA732 speakers (wonderful sound) from an old Gateway with the Windows7 Dell but I get no sound when I plug in on the PC. Need information so I can contact Boston Acoustics for help.
the sound card in the Dell will be built in to the motherboard .
You can replace that with any discrete sound card .
But before you do that check the sound is working properly , by going to device manager , and uninstalling the sound drivers and rebooting . That should reload the driver software. The onboard should not be bad
