Hav you checked all audioo controls? In windows, just asking, some people dont even try this. If so, take some earphones, plug into the front and back connections ( if applicable), while some some music file is playing.

Let me know if you get anything from one or the other, or not at all.

Also, do you have a sepearte AUDIO CARD installed or just the onboard?

Also, how did the issue come about? Suddenly without warning or while you where messing around with controls.

No sound since installing xp

Unfortunately your best bet on your Inspriron 531s is to go back to Vista. According to Dell, this system was specifically setup to run Vista and, therefore, no XP drivers are guaranteed to work on this model. Most of the time for onboard devices, if they are not listed on the site, they are usually native to the operating system and do not require a driver download. Dell does, however, have some XP drivers for this model listed on their support site here

The only audio driver listed is for a Creative Labs X-Fi sound card and I am not sure that is what you have. Your best bet is to uninstall your sound card drivers, reboot, then install these. Good Luck
