I'm sorry to inform you, the sigmatel audio card on the dell can't be used with mac osX

i'd reccomend you to just use the os it came with and maybe using a VPC for macOX

DEll Inspiron 6400 problems

The best place to download drivers is always the manufacturer's website. The Dell drivers for this system are found here :)

The Dell website is very good for providing the correct drivers, I use it all the time. The problem might be in the sequence in which you installed the drivers. ALWAYS start with the chipset driver, as this gives the OS access to the various motherboard components that the other drivers rely upon.

Also, there may be several motherboards used for the same model so you have to install the correct drivers for your motherboard. The Inspiron 6400 has 3 different audio drivers. The most common was actually the last listed, the Sigmatel STAC. But I believe this model also uses special HiDefinition sound.

Read about Microsoft UAA (kb888111.exe) from here:

But UAA is not available directly from Microsoft. A good link to download kb888111.exe here:
Then install the sound driver. It should recognize the sound card and your audio should work.

Dell inspiron 6400/E1505 audio drivers not working.

I can see how vista would screw up drivers through automatic updates. You could not be the 1st.
There are driver cleaners out there.

Make sure you know what chipset you have, probably AC97 and use the driver cleaner to remove it.
Reboot and install the driver from dells web site.
