I assume that his has tried to reinistall his audio drivers?

But other than that, I don't see any reason why an external USB or PCMCIA sound card wouldn't work.

i agree with marvinmatthew, but if its a new computer and the sound card isnt working, i would try and get the sound drivers again (put in your key into dell.com and it will show you a list of every driver you need for your comp) if that doesnt work, im assuming its still under warrenty, i would send it back, if one part of the hardware isnt working who knows what other problems there might be that you havent uncovered yet, or that are going to go wrong soon but if you absolutely dont want to do that the external stuff should work fine
