I have uninstalled and reinstalled the audio driver and also downloaded the driver from Dell but it still can't find device (icon on taskbar says No Audio Output Device is installed). When I try to update the driver it can't find anything. Actually since I uninstalled the original device, and tried reinstalling it, it now shows up under "Other devices" on the Device Manager instead of Audio device. I ran the pre-boot diagnostic test and the audio part works fine. I'm at a loss here....I'm wondering if maybe a Windows update changed the way it recognizes drivers or something. I also tried installing a wireless Microsoft mouse (downloaded the software) and it can't find the driver.
Download Driver Cleaner Pro v.15 from the link. Also, download, and save on your desktop, a clean version of your Sound Card drivers. Run DCPv1.5 and remove all of your audio drivers, plus any possible problem drivers (i.e., if you installed generic drivers to try and get your card to work). After you uninstall, reboot, install your downloaded drivers and reboot again. This should fix your problem, if not please post an update to this thread and I'll continue troubleshooting with you.

This error code is usually generated by a Dell Computer. I suggest that you perform an extended test by pressing the F12 Key at the startup of the Computer. Furthermore, you may go to the Device Manager and check the status of the audio devices which are listed under the "sound, video, and game controllers" category.
I suggest that you try uninstalling and reinstalling the Audio devices from the device manager.
In order to uninstall the audio devices from the Device Manager, please right click on the device and then click Uninstall. It's required to restart the Computer after uninstalling a device. Once the Computer is restarted, reinstall the appropriate Audio driver. You can download the audio driver from the support site of your Computer manufacturer.
For that first uninstall driver for ethernet controoler and audio driver from add remove program. Also uninstall both from device manager. Right click on my computer then click on property then hardware ->device manager then uninstall both from that list. Then download driver from below link. Click here
Click on above link and select yourt operating system and download audio and ethernet driver then install. Let me know if you need further assistance. Thanks.
Uninstall and reinstall the audio drivers. That should fix it. Also check in Audio/Sound properties in Control panel under Recording and check if the Array mic is detected and set as default. Try downloading "http://ftp.us.dell.com/audio/R171786.exe"
