Re: sound driver

Thisdriver works in XP even though the readme says Windows 2000 was the last supported OS. Install it manually (under device manager, right click, update driver, select search a folder for driver, browse to the folder you downloaded it to, etc...). It will bring you through the wizard about five times for all the different parts it needs. It will give you a soundblaster compatibility interface where the builtin windows xp driver did not.

Re: sound driver

Have you tried searching for the drivers on the Dell website?

It may be under motherboard drivers.

You can download the drivers from Dell WEB site, the support download page. Make sure you select your model desktop or laptop, better still, type in the Service Tag number, it is printed on the label on the bottom of the laptop and on the back or sides of a desktop. This will open the page where the specific drivers for your model computer is located. Also make sure you select the Windows XP or Vista version of the drivers for your Windows operating system.

No audio from my dell inspiron 1150pc problem

First thing to check is to see if sound is muted. Very common on Dell laptop's. Right click on the speaker icon in the task bar (lower right corner of screen) and see if the box to mute is checked. If it is remove the check mark and try the sound now. The other thing is to see if the driver is properly loaded for your sound chip on the motherboard. Go to the Control Panel-System-Hardware-Device Manager and see if the sound device has a yellow exclamation point or a red X. If so then the driver for the sound is not loaded. There are several ways to handle, but while you are in the device page click on the sound device if there and there will be an option to remove the driver or update the driver or install the driver. Select install the driver to see if it is on your system. If it is then the system will find it and install it for you. Last to get the driver go here.

Good luck! Phil

No sound on my dell latitude c840

Are you using Dell's driver?

Make sure any audio drivers are uninstalled before you try to install a fresh copy, check both add remove programs and the device manager.

Latitude 820 formatted, drivers lost

Yes it matters! You need to go to and select "I'm looking for drivers and downloads". If you don't have the proper version of Adobe you will be prompted to install it. Once installed return to "drivers and downloads" and enter the "service tag",(serial number) of the 820 laptop. Dell keeps a listing of drivers for every customer's computer they sell.
