Sigma Tel Audio Problem

I have installed the sigma tel audio drivers from the dell download site. When I am done downloading it the sound it good but when I turn off the computer for a bit and turn it back on there is no sound. What could be the problem? I have downloaded it at least a half a dozen times and it does the same thing. The computer has XP media center 2005. What could be the problem?
Thank You

All Drivers for ALL Panasonic Toughbook Models are
located at the following website:

Panasonic called the audio drivers a "Sound Driver".
Make sure you select the correct operating system,
then click on the "Download Now" button located
on the right hand side.

If you go to Microsofts web site and choose updates, you may well find it isn't needed at all. Did your sound stop working? If it did got to and update the drivers from there.

Anyone know how to enable a microphone on Dell

I would try going to Start, Accessories, Entertainment, and opening the Sound Recorder. Try doing a test record and see if it moves, or plays back what you record. If not, click on Edit at the top of the sound recorder, and go down to audio properties. You should see a sound recording section in the middle. Click volume, make sure microphone is selected, and the volume is up. If this doesn't fix it, try reloading your audio driver for your model of computer. You can download dell drivers from

Internal microphone not working

I have Dell Inspiron 1520 and I have issue to built in microphone is not working. I tried to execute the Sigma Tel driver from Dell Driver and Support website but prompted 'Exit Error; Error : Device Object not present, Restart system and run setup. Then, asked Dell support to help and they are not really helpful, after System Restore and drivers upload and finally asked to reformat the laptop........

Anyway, this is what works for me.

1) Download the Sigma Tel driver from Dell Support Drivers page and save it in Desktop
2) Shutdown your computer
3) Start your computer and press F8 at the Dell Logo page
4) Select Safe Mode (not others)
5) Proceed to work on Safe Mode
6) Right-click the Sound icon and activate the Sound icon
7) Select Recording device.
8) If still not working, then execute the Sigma Tel driver that saved in desktop

then, shutdown the computer and start as normal, you may see the system able to detect the built in Microphone then.

Hope it will work the same for you too..!!
