It has two small desktop speakers and a sub woofer. They came together as a package when I bought the computer from Dell. I mention this because one of the small speakers has a on/off switch, which when you turn off, the sound does not turn off, but becomes louder. You need to adjust the sound via the task bar. I just leave the speaker dial at its lowest position, before it clicks off to mute sound, without turning it off. I thought maybe the switch in the speaker wore out, but it has a blue light that turns off and on when the dial is turned from off/on, so that can not be the problem.

Also it says the Chipset should have been updated by now. Can you download and save the Intel Chipset Software Installation Utility, v.126.96.36.1996, A13 from the Dell support page: http://www.dell.com/.../dimension-9150 Then double click on it.

SIGMATEL STAC 92XX C-Major HD Audio, v.188.8.131.5223, A05
It's a bit newer than the one on your PC so it might help.
There is also an option on the Dell Driver support page to Analyze System Fro Updates. You might try that.

I have a new problem that has arisen, the infamous blue screen appears, which reads: kernel stack inpage error. This has occurred 4 times. It might be the memory I installed. It was recommended by Kingston and matched the specs provided in the Dell manual. I have to double-check power compatibility.
Also, it seems to gone gone away, but my external WD 3TB hard drive was giving me error message. The other older WD 1TB external drive gives me no issues. Just mentioning this in case they are related.
