If you have the ResouceCD that came with the PC, go to the Dell site and read procedure in Article ID:12151 to restore the drivers.

Dell also has a driver download section and a way to scan your computer for the proper driver. I have a Dell Demension 4500 with an Integrated ADI 1885 audio driver.

My sound don't work with Window 7. My computer model is Dell Dimension 4500. Would you like to give me any idea of how to be compatible with Window 7?


Uninstall the sound drivers for your computer using the device manger. Reboot. Windows should reinstall the proper drivers. Make sure your OS is up to date via the Microsoft Update site.

If you search Microsoft Compatability List, you will get to the complete list of hardware and software compatability.

ok i had to do this with my mothers computer, when you delete a partition, you have to make a new one in its place, i say put in the xp cd, then say to create a whole new windows installation, when it asks you to choose a partition, delete all partitions, then make a new one, your choice to size but keep it enough to at least install windows onto it, then after that just reformat that partition and install windows, that should fix it.

Missing Windows XP Product Key-Need to Reinstall/Repair XP


I'm assuming you have quite a lot of computer savvy??? You'll need to access that drive and get the original key off it. Try connecting the drive to another pc and see if you can get to the Windows folder. Once there, use Jellybean Keyfinder to navigate to the Windows folder in that drive and take note of the OS key. From there you can reformat and use the existing key.

Depending on the age of your PC it may have Dell automatic recovery

During startup at the Dell Screen hold down the CTRL key and tap F11 twice

It may display the Dell Recovery from which you can set your computer back to factory settings
