You have to know which audio device you have. Dell lists several different audio drivers for the Dimension 4600.

I had a couple of those. They came with on-board sound but in both the ones I had the on-board was disabled and a creative card was used.

Find out which setup you have. Make sure the on-board is disabled in cmos/bios setup if you have the card. Then download the correct drivers. The creative drivers are there too.

You're not really green until you're soylent green.
