I have istalled window XP and i had window vista...but after installation of new one my laptop inspiron 1525 sound system is not working..m trying to install sound driver but thats not properly...

You are download grading your Operating System to XP from Vista. Drivers for Vista and XP are diferent.

You can download the Audio drivers for XP from Dell Support Site for your laptop.
Check your "Device Manager" and uninstall the previous drivers and reinstall the XP Audio drivers downloaded from Dell Site.

Hope it helps.

I'm using vista home premium os, however the problem I enccounter is once you install software which is compatible for windows NT, xp home and windows 2000, the software the one I installed is not properly...

Yes, if you use a Virtual Machine, you can install the version of windows you wish to work with, install the software, and it should work just fine.
You will however need a genuine copy of windows to install in the virtual machine.
You may be able to find an image of the OS you need, or a snapshot of an OS, to load into the VM, it all depends on the type of VM you are going to use

I down size my os from vista to xp bcos i had 1GB ram for use my oracle program well. And since then my web cam has refuse to work and my vga driver is having the same can i get an inbuilt web...

this could be a compatibility problem. If your computer was Vista when you purchased it, than the Webcam most likely was compatible with Vista and up OS, so XP may not work for this reason. Try installing XP driver software for your webcam model. Sorry i can't be of more assistance, this is what i would do. Good luck!

My vista laptop will not allow me to play a game as I do not have the latest OS????

Ah - its not Vista at fault here but the game - it does not recognise Vista properly. Re-install the game by righ clicking on the installer and choosing Troubleshoot Compatibility - then trouble shoot - say it worked on previous version of Windows

Vista will then Emulate XP and it should then work fine.

If this helped please vote kindly
