Make sure you select your model desktop or laptop,better still, type in the Service Tag number, it is printed on the label on thebottom of the laptop and on the back or sides of a desktop. (If the Service Taglabel is missing then go into the BIOS setting and on one of the BIOS pages,the Service Tag number will be displayed). This will open the page where thespecific drivers for your model computer are located. Also make sure you selectthe Windows of the drivers for your Windows operating system.

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.
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 www.adobe.com
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.
