Audio Driver needed for Dell Inspiron XPS 9100 that works in Windows 7.

  • mr_rightwing Oct 03, 2009

    Just to clarify. I am a MCSE with lots of computer hardware experience. I have done everything to verify that the device works even taking Windows 7 off and installing Vista again to verify the card is good - it is.



    I have downloaded many, many, many drivers from lots of manufacturers for the AC97 drivers but none seem to work. The documentation from dell on the service tag indicates that it is a Sigmatel C-Media AC97. Device Manager gives error code 39 for everyone of the drivers I have tried. My Windows 7 install is a clean install. I am not intrested in doing an upgrade from Vista - I understand that would probably provide me with working sound, but if that is your suggestion, please move along and try to help someone else.



    I am hoping that someone, somewhere, happened to find the needle in the internet haystack, and will post a driver "confirmed" to work.



    Again, thanks in advance.

I have the dell 9100 and recently my sound stopped working. No sound


Provided that the audio is not disabled in the BIOS or muted in the volume controls and that the driver is properly installed, then the next step is re-seating the F2 cooling fan assembly (The audio board is part of the fan assembly, don't ask me why)
http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/ins9100/sm/fan.htm#1000550
If re-seating doesn't resolve then replacing the fan assembly is next.

Run MS Vista on Dell 9100


The reason they told your daughter that is because either there isn't a powerful enough CPU and enough memory to support it and also there are no vista drivers for that laptop on Dell's website.

If you decide to put vista on that laptop your going to need to make sure that whatever hardware drivers vista doesn't detect, you'll need to search on the net to find vista compatible drivers if they are out there, it will be time consuming.

My recommendation from my own experience, make sure you have at least a 2GHz processor and 1GB or memory.
