U can use rapidshare or megaupload to host the files for free! I have found all the drivers and all of them have worked for me but the wifi...I found a driver with that same name but it still doesn't work, could u post the link here. I also found two audio drivers with the name "R153908.exe" also from sigmatel. So I'll post the link to the one that works here... http://ftp.us.dell.com/audio/R153908.EXE

I have istalled window XP and i had window vista...but after installation of new one my laptop inspiron 1525 sound system is not working..m trying to install sound driver but thats not properly...


You are download grading your Operating System to XP from Vista. Drivers for Vista and XP are diferent.

You can download the Audio drivers for XP from Dell Support Site for your laptop.
Check your "Device Manager" and uninstall the previous drivers and reinstall the XP Audio drivers downloaded from Dell Site.

Hope it helps.

Dell inspiron 1200 laptop drivers & utility sound drivers for win vista can't install cannot get soud nor video


The dell website doesn't have drivers listed for os vista with the insp. 1200. Probably cause it is an older computer and was made for xp.
I suggest you change your os to or back to xp and then goto
http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/driverslist.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=gen&ServiceTag=&SystemID=INSPIRON%201200&os=WW1&osl=en&catid=&impid=
and download your drivers.

How to install XP in toshiba Satellite L45-S7423 laptop


You cannot uninstall Windows Vista, but you can reinstall your previous operating system, which then replaces Windows Vista. To reinstall your old operating system, you must have the original installation disc. Back up your programs and files, insert the installation disc into your computer, and then reinstall the old operating system. To regain the hard disk space used by Windows Vista, reformat the disk during the reinstallation process. After reinstalling your previous operating system, reinstall your programs and files.
