Just visit the website of your motherboard manufacturer , and you will find the software of the sound driver there .
By the way , rebooting the system after any installation or uninstalling is very important , so don't forget that .

good luck .

rate if useful please !

Please check this article from Microsoft:

You will need to focus mainly on the section "Troubleshooting Windows XP SP3 Installation".
Hope this helps you recover your system.

To make a long story short: My Lattitude D800 has gone completely dead. Is there a way to restore the bios to the factory settings, or something like that? The longer version. Dell Lattitude D800,...


There was a BIOS download from Microsoft for the D800? Weird. Yes as you now know, only install BIOS versions released from the manufacturer themselves.
Well you can try removing the reserve battery, trying to power on to see if that resets it with the reserve battery out.
http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/latd800/sm_en/reserve.htm#1123661
Is it allowing you to go into the existing BIOS at all? You could download the latest bios from Dell's site and try this. http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/download.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=gen&releaseid=R103840&SystemID=LAT_PNT_PNT_D800&servicetag=&os=WW1&osl=en&deviceid=3582&devlib=0&typecnt=0&vercnt=3&catid=1&impid=-1&formatcnt=0&libid=1&typeid=-1&dateid=-1&formatid=-1&source=-1&fileid=133892
You will need a bootable DOS disk to boot to, and flash it.
Flashing the BIOS Dell™ Latitude™ D800 Service Manual 1. Ensure that the AC adapter is plugged in and that the main battery is installed properly. 2. Insert the flash BIOS update program floppy disk or CD and turn on the computer. Follow the instructions that appear on the screen. The computer continues to boot and updates the new BIOS. When the update is complete, the computer will automatically reboot. 3. Press during POST to enter the system setup program. 4. Press and to reset the computer defaults. 5. Press , select Save changes and reboot, and press to save configuration changes. 6. Remove the flash BIOS update program floppy disk or CD from the drive and restart the computer.

My cd writer is not working can nort burn the disk what should i do i have a dell d800


Your cdrom drive can read a data disc or play cd audio? Check if its CDR/CDRW not DVDR/DVDRW, buy a disk cleaner and play it on your cd/dvd drive. After that try to burn again.

Dell Latitude D800-Win XP- My Dvd/rw wont write


Because you lost two devices, the DVD and the wireless mini card, I believe your problem is a drivers issue.
You should make sure you do not have any Malware that is removing these drivers.
If you have access to the Internet download and install Malwarebytes. It has a quick scan that will ID any infections.
Then get the newest drivers for those two devices from Dell's support site.
Before you install the drivers, remove those devices in Control Panel.
