dell dimension 3100c no sound

I have been given a dell dimension 3100c computer with windows xp professional, which will great for playing my elderly games, but it has never had any sound. Can I get a soundcard for it, the slot and case seem smaller than normal. I have tried a dell sound card from another model and it does not physically fit, the computer case is small. I have external speakers that I can plug in that will be no problem.

Use the external speakers.

A couple of drivers on here but not sure if they are the ones that you need. Maybe someone else can confirm.

maybe you can try to find a drivers download software to help scan your computer and it will recommend you what sound card driver you need to download.

Try something like this , cheap as chips, just connect you speakers to it and then connect to a USB port.
