    I removed and installed each chip of ram. The computer recognizes it. It also checks out ok in the self check. When I try to run set up from the XP Disk the files show up as the cd reads them but when it asks me to repair or install the message I get says "Can not find Hard Disk" If you have any thing else I could try let me know. Thanks for your help!

No sound hardware found

If you are using the onboard sound driver, make sure you have the latest drivers and software. Same goes if you are using an add-on expansion board sound card.

For the onboard sound card, you will need Realtek ALC3861 Audio Driver installed. You can download this driver directly from Dell's web site by visiting and clicking on support.

To make sure they know what model computer you have, enter your computers service tag number. If your machine was built with an OEM addon card, it will list those drivers too!

I've had my Dell xps m1210 for almost three years now. But it's not working properly anymore. It started with my computer freezing so I restarted it and I notice my windows was starting weird with 0's...

It sounds like you have a motherboard failing, but before you thing about replacing it or call Dell, run a deep virus scan to make sure you don't have a serious virus infection. Run McAfee, Norton Anti-virus or Kaspersky Anti-virus scan.

No sound on computer, no beeps and no talking on videos

The good news is that driver detective should be easy enough to get your money back, but you'll most likely have to wait days or weeks to see it again.

As for the sound, Did the computer ever play sounds? Dell has a relatively easy to navigate driver download system on their website. You'll need your Service Tag (S/T) number to get the most correct driver.

If you follow this link, then click on Enter My Service Tag, it will take you where you need to go get drivers for the Dell.

you will need to have Flash installed on your computer for the website to work. You can download that free if you do not have it at

good luck

Video & sound problem

On your Dell computer is a service tag. Contact dell with that number and they will tell you what card is installed in that computer.

XPS usually contain either an ATI or an NVidia card. Thats about all I know. I had to replace one with a newer video a few months ago for a client of mine because Dell didn't support the machine and couldn't pinpoint the model number of card. I know on the website there are about 4 to 6 of them to choose from.
