Questions about hardware,drivers and peripherals
I just installed LM 6 on a Dell Dimension 8200. Not sure how to test the sound other than plugging in some headphones and using the test function in Sound Preferences. When I use the test function it sounds like it engages the device with a little bit of a high pitched frequency, but it doesn't actually output a sound. Playback is set to 'Autodetect'. I appreciate any help/direction. Thanks.

You have to tell us more facts.
The minimum is exactly which Mint you have - which version and which edition (main or any of the CEs)
We also need to know a bit about all your hardware.
Run " lspci " in a terminal and post here (to avoid misunderstanding - the first character is a minor L and you copy by marking with the mouse and then right click)
Some wifi and possibly built in sound can be connected to USB even if they are internal - if you suspect you have one of these run " lsusb " in a terminal.
Also tell us if this is using mint4win or not, quite important
This is a standard answer so it may not be fully applicable to your situation
Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it
