Most likely a problem with the card. They tend to corrupt easy enough. Try formatting the card.

Onboard sound does not need drivers. The little speaker is attached to the motherboard directly or by wires plugged into the motherboard. You need to check to see which speaker you have. Once you have found out, be sure that, if it has wires attached to it, that they are plugged in.

With your Dell computer's "Tag" number, visit their support website and enter that number to bring up your machine; from there you should be able to find/download your drivers.

Sounds like your on Google Chrome, this has started popping up since the last update and only on secure webpages at random, try running Windows Update and make sure it's up to date, it check the root certificates which should come with the windows updates.

ok 960 SFF is not the same as MT or the big case MOBO.
SFF has its own mobo (motherboards)
it has 11x2 row non ATX spec, power . not yours as it has 12x2 some SFF have 2 diffr. mobo
and a dell custom PSU for just this mobo and its odd duck jack. (called PICO plug)
why not buy a new PSU? that matches this PC?
even the SFF PSU case is not ATX spec.

Go into device manager. Uninstall audio driver.

Restart computer.

This will reinstall the default driver. Try again.

If it doesn't work, go to Dell website to find specific driver for your computer (using the service tag) and install that.

Desktops PCs usually have a 'jumper' on the motherboard, inside of the PC, that resets the BIOS, removing the password but also changing some settings to their defaults. It takes some 'know how' but you can google it to help you locate it.

You are getting blue dump on start up or after booting in to the system

CD/DVD reader/wroters are 'generic' parts, so any that the right size (5 1/4" or 'slim-line') with the right connector (IDE or SATA) should work OK. If in doubt, just buy from Dell (at their rip-off 'spare part' prices)

To get the Optiplex case open, look on the Dell web site for the 'service manual' ..

Dell OptiPlex... | Answered on Mar 30, 2016


During power on, you should see a message like 'Select boot device' or 'Set boot order' or some such .. typically you press F12 ...

Alternative you can set a 'permenant' boot order in the BIOS (press F2 during power-up, as I recall)
