I can't figure out how to get audio working on my PC. I have a Dell Dimension 2400 desktop, i recently reformatted the PC and through support.dell.com, I downloaded all drivers (video, chipset, etc.) that were necessary to download. I've done this before with Dell computers and have never had a problem.. I've downloaded the specific audio drivers but i get an error saying "The Audio driver files do not support your system hardware." I've done just about every precaution I could possibly think of to fix this problem but to no avail nothing seems to work. I'm 100% positive this is the right driver because it's through the support.dell.com drivers page and it's the right computer model. Any form of help is extremely appreciated for I've been trying to fix this thing for quite some time now and can not for the life of me figure out the problem.

Re: Dell Dimension 2400 audio issue, need help!
If you want to dig further into drivers outside of Dell, you might try www.driverguide.com You have to create an account there (it's free). They have a large selection of drivers for lots of manufacturers and OS's. Please read all the comments or notes about them before downloading one. You sometimes have to be generic in searching, but start with the manufacturer and then the model (I suggest only typing in the numbers from the model first) of your sound card and/or motherboard. I can't guarantee they'll have it, but they might.
Jeffiorio, Well it appears that you have done everything correct. However for this particular model, there are at least 3 different audio drivers available. I have ran into this problem myself within my shop a time or two before.Try one of these it will be correct for your PC.

It is almost impossible to upgrade proprietary makes like Dell and HP. The are big enough to have motherboards made for them manufactured on price point. This means that they are not built with upgrade in mind. Also the cases are made to fit their motherboard and theirs only.
Go to a computer builder and get a good case, buy a good quality motherboard and equip it with what you can afford. In two years you can upgrade as processors have moved on. Two years after that, you can swap out the motherboard, processor and memory.
Generally, connecting phones via bluetooth to a laptop just allows for file transfer between the two devices. It is not to input sound from the phone through the speakers of the laptop. You would need a bluetooth audio device for that such as bluetooth speakers or headphones

Compare antivirus software. Look at the features and benefits of each. Read reviews from authoritative editors from magazines such as "PC World," "Smart Computing" and "PC Magazine." Editors who write for these magazines typically test antivirus software as an unbiased outsider and write about both the good and bad sides of antivirus software. For example, the editors at "PC World" recommended Avira AntiVir, Avast Antivirus and Panda Cloud Antivirus in an August 2009 article. Visit the websites of each antivirus program to view screen shots and descriptions of how the program works. Make a final decision about which antivirus program you want to install.
Navigate to the website of the antivirus program you've chosen. Go to the "Downloads" section of the site if you're obtaining a free antivirus software. Click on the "Purchase" section or "Buy" button if you have chosen licensed software; pay for and complete the transaction. Click the "Download" button or link for the antivirus program. Save the file to your computer desktop or to a computer directory or folder which you can easily remember.
Find the antivirus program file you downloaded on your computer. Double-click the ".exe" file (which is an executable file that will install the antivirus program). Once you double-click the ".exe" file, the installation process will automatically begin. Click "Continue" or "Next" on each screen to complete the installation process. Enter your name and contact details if registration is required. Follow any other on-screen prompts to complete the antivirus program installation. Restart your computer if necessary.
