The loud sound is probably caused by the fan in your computer. :)
The sound card is the first item what you need to check. If have no problem with the card, you need to check the software. And maybe you need check the connection,
Your computers sound system may need replaced.
If you bought a new computer and you do not have sound, there could be something wrong with the sound card, your settings are not correct, or your speakers are not set up properly. Check with the dealership you purchased if from. They should be able to help you.
get a sound card for the computer
You should check to see if a driver for your sound card has been installed; XP may not have one for your card. You can check this by right-clicking My Computer, selecting Properties, going to the Hardware tab, and launching the Device Manager. If any devices have a yellow question mark, then they do not have a driver installed. You need to find a driver for the card, either on the computer manufacturer's site, or the producer of the sound card (ie. Yamaha, Creative, Intel, etc...).
On the computer your computer should have this sound thing. Go to the sound thing and mute it.
Check if the required specifications match what your computer has installed.
Check your cords. Make sure everything is connected that should be.Check the bottom right of the screen make sure your not muting. Check the audio volume of the music player.Troubleshoot your speakers.
Check your speaker cables plugs and connections. Check the actual speakers on another computer. Check that you have not turned off the volume on the task bar or sound card set up. Check that the sound card drivers are installed properly. (look in the 'Device manager' for an exclamation mark next to the sound driver).

There will be no sound if the computer has been muted, or the volume is too low, or the sound card is faulty. Try using headphones to check if the sound is there.
A sound card upgrade should not be needed for most computer gaming applications.
Check sound level could possibly be on mute
When the sound isn't working on your Dell computer, the first thing you should check is the speakers. You will also need to go into the volume folder and make sure that the settings are correct.
You should try to clean the inside of your computer tower. The same thing happened to me. Vacuum it and wipe it off.
Pass mark sound check
You need to find the sound card driver. Check the manufacture website for fresh drivers.
If the sound on a computer doesn't work correctly, it is wise to check the cords and make sure everything is plugged in. If that does not work, be sure the volume is turned up on the actual computer. If all else fails, consider investing in a new sound card.
First I would check different sound settings in the computer - for example in Windows, there is a sound icon; check whether it isn't turned off. Also check whether your speakers aren't turned off - and whether they are plugged in.If you hear sound after checking this, it may be that the problem is with some specific program (for example, a music player in which you don't hear the music); check the program's specific settings, restart the program; and if that doesn't work, reinstall the program that doesn't work. Or try an alternative program. If the entire computer still produces no sound, you may want to try other speakers; and if that doesn't work, you'll probably need to take the computer to a technician.
You sound card should have a audio in port.
They should plug in on the back. The socket is often green for the main speakers. If that doesn't work, try a socket on the front. If there are no sockets, then you would need to install a sound card. If you get no sound, then check your connections, make sure your amplifier is getting power (unless you are using lightweight headphones and have them plugged directly into the computer), and check your sound drivers. If you just installed your OS, then you may need to go to the sound hardware manufacturer's site or the motherboard manufacturer's site and download the drivers. Or you might have a driver CD you need to install. You should also make sure you didn't disable the sound hardware in the control panel or in the Windows volume control options.
A sound card upgrade is not neccessaey when changing your speakers.
A good website to check is Squidoo - they can offer sound advice and is very helpful in aiding you with easy to read instructions about free sound effects.
