I reloaded window XP on my Dell E521 desktop and now i HAVE NO SOUND

You'll need to download and install the appropriate audio driver from the 5 different choices listed here Product Support
Choose the driver for your particular original product. A Dell E521 had several audio systems. I would look in Device Manager of Control Panel and see if your audio system is named or is just listed as an unknown device with a YELLOW BANG (!) beside it. Try each one starting with newest. If it isn't for your system, it will likely advise you during the execution of the downloaded choice. If so, cancel installation and try the next one.

first check to see and smell if there is something burning. if so keep it powered off! I had to have dell replace my motherboard because of this! If you dont smell anything, you can add an additional PCI card to see if everything else works. If you or a friend dont have an extra PCI card then you are kind of stuck until you get one to make sure the motherboard actually works. If you happen to be luck and have a motherboard with a pci card in it then make sure that the PCI card is seated firmly. Most of the E521 motherboards had the onboard videocard so you are probably out of luck. I would call dell and hope it is still under warranty.
But if it is not adding a video card is probably your best bet. If youdo put in a card change your bios to the correct video first place. Either AGP or PCI or express depending on how old of the E521 is will depend on the peripherial port you have acess to.
