Question about Dell XPS M1530 Laptop
At all it is saying the speakers are fully up but still no sound i think this may have something to do with the screen saver
There could be a couple things that could be wrong. i dont see how a screen saver could have anything to do with it but with both xps models m1210 and 1530 they have a common problem that could cause this to happen that being the geforce 8 series chip witch can cause many symptoms including wifi problems and sound problems, now if this is the issue i would back up your files while you can because what happens is the chip over heats and detaches itself from the board and the system will not work at all, the only thing that will happen at this point is it will tern on and the screen will stay black.
If that is not the issue than theres still a couple things it could be i would just need more info to troubleshoot, or you could take it to a local shop and they could do the work for you because something like this could entail checking the hard drive for damage or replacing hardware witch is best handled by a professional.

This is a known vista issue where it creates a backup of your profile for some reason there registry edits to try and fix it but a system restore is much easier. Follow the below steps to solve problem.
Turned computer on and immediately pressed F8 repeatedly until I got "Advanced Boot Options" select "Safe Mode" computer then opens safe mode login as admin if possible, with a "Help" window, in the help window there is an underlined "What is System Restore?" then select "Click to open System Restore" restore to a previous state before which the fault occurred.
Click OK and after config changes should be good to go.

I'm thinking you might be having a hard drive problem or the file structure is really messed up.
You had Win 7 and tried to install Win XP. Now it is confused, no doubt.
Here's the first thing I would do:
Put in your Win XP disk and boot from it.
At the first question it asks (about repair or install) choose repair.
It will then ask you which Windows Installation--choose #1 if it's there.
Hit enter if it asks for your password.
Now at the command prompt, type chkdsk /?
Depending on your version of XP, it will show you the switches you can use. Use the one that checks the entire drive. Might be chkdsk /P or maybe /F
Anyway, use the one that does the whole drive and let it run. Then try your reinstall unless you have file problems that aren't fixed.
BTW--your Dell should have a utilities option if you hit F12 at startup that will allow you to check your hard drive.
