Internal speaker for Dell Precision T3600

Q: Internal speaker for Dell Precision T3600

Hi Everyone,
I was hoping to use an old dell internal speaker on T3600, and realized that the pin connector on motherboard (MB) is slightly different. The old speaker was taken from an Optiplex 745. On the 745 MB, the audio port is like one pin, space, three other pins, but on T3600 MB, the layout is three pins, space, one pin. The speaker has four cables, green,[space], black, white and red. I can plug in the speaker but it does not work properly.
My question is if anyone knows the pinout on T3600 MB. I can then rearrange pin receptacles of the speaker to make the speaker work.

Thank you,

Preferred Solution: Internal speaker for Dell Precision T3600

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)


I just installed an internal speaker in my Dell Precision T3500.  How do I configure a Windows 10 system to use that speaker?  The T3500 product documentation references the internal speaker but I haven't found any documentation on how to get it to work.  I assume it's a cheap business speaker, so I know the quality won't be great.  I'm just hoping for some basic sound out of it.
Thanks in advance,

I checked T3600 and 3610 - the only difference is BIOS firmware, even BIOS chips are the same. T3600 has Intel ME firmware 7th version - that is why Xeon v2 are not recognized by the 3600 system, they need later 8th version of ME. Upgrade of ME formware is a difficult procedure  - You need to fit the size and other attributes of old ME region. The simpliest way would be to read both BIOS chips from 3610 motherboard and clean data region in ME but I don't have any T3610 systems. Another way is to analyze BIOS file for T3610 and drag out the firmware for T3600. If anybody has T3610 - please reply

I recently ordered (have not yet received) a Dell Precision T3600 workstation. I tend to build my own desktops, but I didn't want anything too flashy case wise, (cared more about ease of access, etc.) and all the good "build your own" cases are very loud (color wise, light wise, not decibel wise necessarily). At any rate, because of this "build your own spirit", I ordered it with pretty much budget everything except the PSU, which I upgraded to the 635 Watt option. I figure I can upgrade CPU, GPU, RAM, SSD, etc. later and save money. The one thing that is unclear on Dell's website, however, is what CPU options are supported. I know it is a socket LGA2011, but some of these have core count restrictions. Dell only lists it on their website with up to 8 core CPUs, but 12 core chips do exist for the LGA2011 socket. Does anybody know if these chips are compatible with the system's motherboard?
Thanks in advance!

Dell Precision T3600 
I have been trying to install Windows 7 on this machine now for two days :) I have tried numerous drivers off the support website. 
This machine has two 500gb SAS drives configured with a Dell H310 SAS card. 
initially I configured both drives as a raid-1 mirror, initialized both disks and set the boot options in BIOS to ata and legacy.
I then load the Windows 7 setup and has problems finding the drives. Ok I thought get the drivers to the H310 card. No matter what driver I throw at this thing it refuses to detect any hard disk. 
I get a error messaged saying continue to load *signed drivers*
I have tried every driver on the Dell site, and also other suggestions with Intel drivers nothing has worked. 
I get the same problem the windows installer cannot see the drives. I even unraided the configuration and same problem occurs. 
This is a headache!  please is there a simple way to install windows on this heap of junk :)

I just picked up a used T3600 and upgraded to 64GB of ECC RAM (4X 16GB ECC DIMMs). Now I get a message at POST saying recent hardware changes require an upgrade to the power supply.
Will an 825 watt or 1300 watt supply from a T5600 work in the T3600?  Can anyone confirm compatibility in a T3600?
It looks like the T3600 originally shipped with a 425W or a 635W supply.
Thanks in advance!


A:Dell Precision T3600 Power Supply Options?

Hi _erin,
The T3600 originally shipped with a 425W or 635W PSU, whilst the T5600 shipped with a 635W or 825W. The 635W model is cross-compatible (Dell part numbers: 1K45H, NVC7F) so the 825W (Dell part numbers: DR5JD, CVMY8 ) shouldn't present any issues (however, it isn't a supported configuration)

This is how I got my T5600 to work from a SSD SATA connected to a PERC 310H card and boot as UEFI. It can also be a SAS drive. In this example I was only using a single drive and have not attempted a RAID setup. 

I may have skipped some parts where you have to reboot. If I refer to the BIOS settings then you would have to reboot first. 

1. Setup hard drive as a NON-RAID drive. When booting it will appear as BIOS handled and NON-RAID.
2. Download the Windows 10 installer onto USB using Microsoft Media Tool.
3. Download the DELL T5600 Payload for T5600 and BIOS files (if needed). Install latest DELL BIOS if you have an existing older OS. 
4. Unzip the DELL driver payload onto the USB drive for Windows 10 and leave inside a folder called T5600.
5. Using a rear USB slot that is NOT USB 3. Go into F2 and load the USB stick under UEFI, it may have a strange name if the BIOS is old (such as INT13). Saqve changes. Reboot. Boot from the USB stick. 

6. Make sure the drive you are working on does not contain data you want to keep. Ideally you would disconnect any drive you dont want to accidentally alter. 
When given the option to select a hard drive, if necessary, delete any previous partitions so the drive is without any partitions. Then click the * NEW button. 
7. After clicking NEW it MUST generate 4 partitions, 3 system partitions + 1 OS partition (made by Windows installer). If it only has 2 partitions it will never work as a UEFI boot volume

Last week, I purchased a Dell Precision 5510 with Windows 7 and the audio was working fine, but on Saturday night I was watching a video on Netflix when the right-side speaker started to crackle. I followed the instructions on a number of tutorials including reinstalling the RealTek audio drivers and switching to the windows default drivers, but none of these things have gotten rid of the crackling.
Of note, the crackling only starts when the audio is raised somewhere around the 50% capacity mark or beyond, but it is a constant and persistent annoyance at that point.  I am of the belief that this is a hardware issue at this point, but any insight others could provide before I contact Dell Support would be appreciated.

A:Dell Precision 5510 Crackling Sound from Right-side Speaker

Hi waxenwings,Thanks for posting.Does this exist using external speakers or just the internal ones?  Have you tried headphones?In some cases, this may be caused by a conflict with SRS audio enhancement package and Adobe Flash. This has been escalated.Possible solutions include uninstall the SRS Audio package from Add\Remove Programs-Programs and Features. Reboot and test the system. Update Adobe Flash. Reinstall the SRS Audio package from Drivers and Downloads from support.dell.com and test again.If none of that's working, then contact Tech Support for additional troubleshooting.

I have a problem with the Dell Precision T3600 workstation. The original operating system on the workstation was Windows 7. Recently, we decided to replace the original Windows 7 for Windows 10 and we wanted to replace the classical disk for SSD, which has more advantages. My problem is that after the system is installed, the computer behaves very neatly. When booting, the disk controller did not try to send data to the processing bus. Simply say, there are periods when the pc starts when the pointer is standing, it does not respond to the click instructions and opening the application, and the disk in the monitor is used up to 100%. After about half a minute, the process is restored and everything is about normal for one minute, then the process is repeated again and again and again.
Please help me, I've already sketched everything I could attack, bios upgrade to A15, new drivers, replace all components in pc for others, and it's still only in that motherboard.

Hello Dell community!
Yesterday I did a motherboard swap in my E6420 from the Intel HD board to the Nvidia board.
Everything seems to be working fine, except the internal speakers won't work in the OS.
I booted into the built in diagnostics, tested the audio, and it played the tones of audio through the speakers.
I have a suspicion that because I did the Motherboard swap, I can no longer use the old IO board due to it being a different size, the audio device may be on that as it has the headphone jack.
Also, I know it uses a different sound device, but the HDMI audio works just fine.
Any help would be appreciated!

So the other night I heard some crackling noises coming from my laptop and then the sound just stopped working altogether. I pretty frequently plug and unplug a set of external speakers in the headphone jack so I figured this might be the issue. Sure enough, when I apply pressure with my finger over the headphone jack opening the internal speakers work fine. When I release the pressure the internal speakers stop working. I kind of smacked the laptop on the side a bit and it seems to be ok for now but I'm guessing the only way to fix this permanently if the issue returns is to open the laptop and secure anything that might be loose near the headphone jack. I have never opened up my laptop before, if I do have to do this are there some precautions I should be taking to ensure I don't completely mess it up?

I have done a clean install of Windows 10 Pro on a Precision 3600 and everything works great except the bios will not update. I have tried by just installing the file, using Dell precision optimizer, and all gets stuck on the restart phase. Is there any suggestion on getting the PC to update the BIOS ?

Thank you.

A:Precision T3600, BIOS Update issue

What BIOS version is currently installed? What BIOS version are you trying to install? You should install them in order, oldest to newest.

Note, I only update the BIOS to fix a specific issue. I never update the BIOS just because there is a new one listed.
Desktop Instructions =- Disconnect all peripherals from the desktop except for monitor, mouse, and keyboard- Close all unnecessary applications- Download the BIOS to the windows desktop- Run the BIOS- You must allow the BIOS itself to restart the computer. Do NOT force a restart manually. This could break the motherboard

I am going to upgrade my T3600 Workstation with a new CPU. There are a number of them sold on ebay now, but there is no info in those announcements regarding which of the 3 steppings intel produced of the E5-2670 cpu is inside them. 
Does anyone have this cpu installed in their T3600 machine out there? Could you help a fellow? Should be in the bios under system information... or on the actual purchase receipt when you upgraded.
There are 3 steppings: 
What it says there is that the 3 steppings are "C0" (QB7A), "C1" (QBF5, SR0H8) and "C2" (QBV7, SR0KX). Now, if you don´t know the specifics of your cpu, just look in the bios for any of the above numbers that are in parenthesis, aka "QBV7, SR0KX", anything like that.
Also, if you could give the bios version and revision of the revision of the motherboard/mainboard, that would of course be genius, but I´ll take anything anyone has to offer me at this point. 
Thanks for any help!
Best Regards

There have been many threads about sourcing a heatsink alternative for the T3600 / T5600 / T7600. 
Having acquired several used T5600 workstations at a very low cost, I had the idea to make all of them dual processor machines. There appeared to be two obstacles to this idea. 
1/ The latched fan connector 
2/ The ILM is not the most common variant. The ILM is the pressure latch holding the CPU into the socket. Various ebay sellers describe it as a latch, socket, holder .. in fact it is an ILM. 
Lets go through this one step at a time. 

Heatsink fan and its connector
The connector DELL use on the PWM Heatsink fan is a standard connector. Due to the cyclonic forces created by the DELL heatsink, the resistance of the fan connector latch is the only force capable of resisting the gusts of wind driven by 15-30 cubic feet per minute (cfm) of volume. 
However, the resourceful sellers of ebay / newark / digikey / element14 have a solution. For the non-DELL heatsinks using the flimsy PWM connector in a 4 pin housing there are two options. 
1/ Cut off the standard connector, or, 
2/ Purchase an adaptor / converter cable.

Pointers in the direction of a solution will be much appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

A:External Speaker Fails to Mute Internal Speaker

What audio codec does your laptop use?

It will be listed in device manager. The VEN DEV combo will be enough information.

You'll find it in the device properties details tab, specifically, the "Hardware IDs" section.

It will resemble this:

Usually the audio codec chip itself will detect an external speaker is plugged in. Have you checked your audio device's configuration software? It should have a shortcut in the classic control panel.

I bought 4x16 to replace or better add to it, but i'm right in thinking that's completely wrong and I in fact need to buy another 12x16 as i HAVE to have all 16 slots filled with 16 gig sticks? is that correct?

I've got a Dell Precision 7710 with the Dell Precision Optimizer. It works great for when I'm using AutoCAD Civil 3D in setting up the laptop for optimization by turning off 2 cores and increasing the clock speed of the processor. 
Unfortunately I also do programming with Virtual Machines. When I'm in this mode I want all 4 cores to share the load instead of 2 cores. 
Is there a workflow available to go from one profile to no profile? Do I have to do a restart to switch between profiles? So if I'm doing CAD work and then switch over to programming do I have to turn off the AutoCAD profile to no profile and the restart the computer? I tried turning off the profiles and nothing changes for the cores. 
Is there a way to create my own profile? Or should I pick one like 3ds Max that would utilize more cores?  Or should I not use it since it won't meet my needs?

A:Dell T3600 Pttt9 Front Panel Pin Layout

Dell doesn't make front panel pin-outs public for any PC model.
So unless somebody else has mapped them and posts here, you're on your own to figure them out.

I recently discovered a difference in the volume; the left speaker of the laptop has been functioning normally while there seems to be very low to no sound coming from the right speaker.

Any suggestions?

A:Dell Inspiron 15 5559 Audio - Right Speaker has low volume while the left speaker functions normally

Hello.You didn't mention the headphone jack, so if you have not yet done so, plug in headphones and see if the balance is okay in them. If the headphones check out okay, then most probably it's a problem related to the speakers.
The test for speakers is the ePSA audio test. It is a hardware test, which means that if the test  tones are very low in the right speaker, but normal in the left speaker, then there is hardware failure somewhere, related to the right speaker.
If both speakers sound normal during the test, then the problem is in the software. Do the usual things like re-install the audio driver, check the balance levels in the Sound properties, try different audio sources, etc.
Re-installing the audio driver resets the settings to their default configurations, so if you do it then you don't have to bother with things like volumes and balance settings, because they will be okay.(Also if the balance is okay through headphones, then it should be okay through the speakers too.)
Here is how to do a simple driver re-install:
1.    Open the Device Manager.2.    Expand the "Sound, video & game controllers" category.3.    Right click on "Realtek High Definition Audio".4.    Click "uninstall".5.    Do not check the box to “delete the driver software for this device”. 6.    Restart the computer. Windows will detect your device a... Read more

Got an old Precision M6500 dual core with a blown speaker.  Can get a replacment board off ebay, but not sure how difficult it is to change.  I lifted up the top plate and can see the speaker board, but don't see any screws on top to remove to get the board out.
Has anyone changed the speaker board and how hard is it.
Can't find anything on the net to help me.

I have a Dell Precision T1650 with an internal NVIDIA graphics adapter.  I want to remove the internal card and use only the built-in VGA.  When I remove the card and plug in a VGA cable it doesn't work.  I don't see any configuration to enable the internal VGA.  What could I be missing?

I have search for many hours for answers to questions on new Graphics Cards which require 8pin and 6 pin or 8pin and 8pin power connections aside from the motherboard supplied power and what the appropriate method was to connect the GPU cards to the 8 pin pcie power connections. This is complicated by the fact that the Precisions seem to only have 6pin cables installed with the towers regardless of the power supply that is installed.   Yes. Everyone understands hopefully that if you have, for example, a 450 watt power supply ( forget the efficiency aspect of the actual power supply) as I am interested in the mechanics of the  design.
The power supply connects to a PC board, which appears to be called "Power Supply extended card"
Now, looking at the connectors on this extended card, there is a "POWER_VGA1" 8pin connection on this extended card (bottom left black socket).  To this 8pin connector, on my T5600 and seemingly on all the others that have made similar inquiries, we all have a 8pin male connector that fit into the extended card. My 8pin connector has two sets of wires leaving the connector and becoming two 6 pin connectors, one of which 6pin connectors is plugged into my stock Quadro 5000 video card.
OK. So, now most people are wanting to change out the 6pin Quadro card with either an 8pin or 8 pin plus 6pin or 8pin and 8pin graphics card such as a GTX 980TI or GTX 1080 or GTX 1070 or AMDs similar card.

I just talked to a guy who has had his speakers swiped by his brother. I told him most pc s come with an internal speaker so he should get some sound even if it is the basic beeps. He says no way without external speakers. I don't think I have ever had a pc without a internal speaker of some kind. I have even seen softeare to play mp3s, poorly, using win 3. He says his computer is two weeks old. Am I out to lunch on this? It's driving me nuts.

A:Internal speaker?

The "internal speaker" on many systems these days is simply a small "piezo" beeper attached to the motherboard, not like the "real" speaker that used to be fitted to older systems.

The internal speaker is controlled at BIOS level, and is not usually available to Windows as a sound output device, just a BIOS error signalling device.

So your were in to lunch, once. But lunch has changed.

Is there no internal speaker for the 700-414? I'm moving some things around and I don't have my audio system hooked up yet.Thanks

KAP1959, welcome to the forum. No, HP desktops do not have internal speakers except for the system sounds.  This is not capable of working for other sound.  If there are speakers they would be in the monitor. Please click the Thumbs up + button if I have helped you and click Accept as Solution if your problem is solved.

An internal speaker in my computer keeps beeping periodically (at very different rates) when I play games and only when I play games as far as I've noticed.

A:optiplex 380 internal speaker

Hi hmnah,
Do you remember making any recent changes to the computer prior to this issue?
I would suggest you to follow the steps mentioned below:
Method 1:
Open audio troubleshooter and check if the issue occurs follow the steps in the link below:
Open the Playing Audio troubleshooter
Method 2:
Verify if the default sound device is set correctly. Follow these steps:

Click the Start button, click Control Panel, click Hardware and Sound, and then click Sound.
Click the Playback tab. Make sure the correct default audio device is selected. (For most users, the default audio device is Speakers.)
If your default device isn't set to the correct audio device, on the Playback tab, select the correct device, click Properties, click the Advanced tab, and make sure that Default Format is set to the value that you expect. When finished, click OK.
On the Playback tab, select the playback device, click Configure, and then make sure the configurations are set correctly.
If the sound settings are set correctly, and your speakers are already set as the default device, go to "Verify that an audio driver is installed" now.
Select the audio device that you want as the default audio device, and then click Set Default.
Click OK to save your settings.

For your reference follow the steps in the following link:
Tips for fixing common sound problems
Method 3:
If the above step fails follow the steps from the link:
No sound in Windows.
Let me know the status.

Hi All

A couple of days ago the internal speaker on my pc stopped working for some reason. As I say in the title of this thread, I can still get sound through my headset but I would really like to restore the workings of the internal speaker.

So far I've downloaded the free DriveMax prog and checked all my drivers. There are a few out of date and one of them is for the SoundMax system that, I guess, controls the sounds - unless this is done by something else? Anyway, I downloaded and installed the newer version but then I got several message boxes come up on the reboot saying there was some sort of corruption - sorry, I can't remember what it said exactly and I can't reproduce it as I've taken the computer back using the system restore.

Can anyone help me with this please. I'm not that smart with computers as it is and even less so when it comes to drives so I'd appreciate it if someone can check the drives and possibly suggest any other checks that can be done to isolate the problem.

FYI - the pc is an hp Compaq running XPpro.

Thanks in advance.

A:Internal Speaker not Working

By way of an up date, I managed to download another copy of the driver that I said in my opening post had caused problems but this time there wasn't any sign of similar problems. However, neither was there any sign that its installation had cured my problem.

Sure would appreciate some suggestions.

Hello. Dell does not support Win8.1 on the Inspiron 15 N5010, however, the audio should work.
Your laptop has IDT audio hardware on the motherboard, but there is not a Win8.1 audio driver available for it, so install the IDT Win7 audio driver into Win8.1, by using compatibility mode.
1. Download and save the audio driver to your desktop or any convenient location on the hard drive.  2. Double click on the new folder to extract (unzip) the driver files.3. The extractor wizard will create a new folder for the driver files. It will be at "c:\dell\drivers\xxxxxx". Write down the exact location that the wizard creates. 4. If the driver begins to install automatically, halt (cancel) the installation.5. Browse to the driver files on the hard drive (the location you wrote down).6. Find the "setup.exe" file.7. Right click on setup.exe to open the context menu.8. Select the Properties.9. Select the Compatibility tab.10. Check the box "run this program in compatibility mode for"... Win7.
If the speakers still do not work after installing the IDT driver, revert the laptop back to Windows 7 if possible.
If the speakers still do not work after reverting to Win7, test the speakers for failure by running either the audio test in the ePSA test, or by failing the color bar test in  the PSA test {Your laptop will have either the ePSA test or the older PSA test.) Instruc... Read more

Hi, Just recieved my brand new HP laptop gen 4 and am very pleased but there seems to be a 'buzzing' coming from the internal speakers when anything loud/basey is played. it seems like when a small, cheap speaker is trying to deal with a more complex range of sounds, treble middle and base at the same time. I don't know if you can help, i don't want to return it as it seems perfect. thanks in advance Bailey
