Hi
If I get you right, you installed vista and you've lost your sound. if the vista "your operating system" is activated then no problem, if not the solution I'll give you will work anyway but I strongly advice you get it activated.
to get the sound drivers and any driver on the machine to work properly you need to update the product over the internet.
go to control panel and click on security centre, look for windows update click on it and be patient to allow the computer to search, download and install the drivers. the machine will prompt you to reboot at the process is complete
thanks

Beep codes on dell xps one 2010


If I understand your issue, it sounds like the display works fine until it loads Windows, and then it has the error? It sounds to me like the video card drivers are crashing. This may be the case if you have recently updated them, or installed a new video card. I would recommend getting the latest drivers from the manufacturer's website on a CD, SD card, or USB drive, and then boot your computer in safe mode. Once in safe mode, install the new drivers, and see if that will help. You could also try using your onboard (integrated) video card if your motherboard has one. This could help rule out if the monitor is at fault. Just make sure your BIOS has the integrated card as a secondary video device if it the (I'm assuming PCIex16) peripheral card isn't found.

My microphone not working on my dell xps 420 vista system





double click on the speaker and make sure that the mic does not have the mute box with an x in it.

I am pretty certain you have a card in your computer for it mentions a 7.1 speaker system.
If you put your service code in to do a search for drivers you will get the correct ones for your particular machine. Download install and reboot.
If you are not using six speakers and one sub woofer then the pink one in the back is the mic
