Question about Dell XPS 420 PC Desktop
Sound controller shows 'No audio devices are installed' on Recording tab
When you were on Windows 7/Vista and you clicked on the installer, then it checked the devices, did it say that the device is not gonna work? Did you check the report for programs that may not work?
Try going to the manufucator's website and downloading the latest drivers.If you have upgraded to Windows 8 from Xp, then many things might not work as expected.
Hope that this answers your question.

you can go to dells website and click support drivers and downloads type in the service tag of the machine (its 7 letters and nubers found on CPU Ex: BF14FJ1) and based on the service tag the correct audio drivers should be displayed for you to download.
