The AD 1983 inboard audio chip, while obsolete, works on my other networked dell computers from 2005. On tis one computer though I get NO sound either from built in usoft software or this Analog Devices audio chip. I have pursued Device Manager. Device Manager does not exhibit either SoundMax Integrated audio or a sound device. All displays for sound are greyed out. I have attempted downloading drivers pertinent to this oudated chip.
I am thinking to exchange the motherboard unless additional advice is forthcoming
