Question about IBM Computers & Internet
See your sound settings in control panel, make sure that a little speaker icon is not grey, or choose sound device from list (activated one - possibly you are still using sound from motherboard, and must swith to your sound card).
Also make sure that your device has no exclamation signs in device manager, which would mean a bad or invalid driver, go to device manager and update the driver for device if device is yellow.

Please visit this web-page:
You're looking to download the first driver on the list, the, "Realtek High Definition Audio Driver Update." Once you download it simply opening the downloaded file should install the driver for your sound chipset. If not, read the instructions on the download page for detailed step-by-step instructions on how to properly unpackage and install the drivers.
If installing these driver's doesn't do the trick, let me know. I'll try to help you debug the problem and get the whole issue resolved.
Let me know how it turns out or if I can assist you further.

check the series, is it really require realtek? because the driver doesn't depends on the windows XP, but the type, model and series of motherboard or chipset brand.... anyway, realtek doesnt written on the device manager, check to your control panel - sound and audio device, is all enabled?or does any volume elements are muted..

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.
