No sound on this computer had to reinstall windows XP.


You will not have sound without reinstalling the driver for it. Also, many other items will not be functioning properly until you reinstall the drivers. Go to your start menu and find "Windows Update". Click on it and do everything it asks you to do. If it asks you if you want to run Windows Update Express or Custom, pick CUSTOM. This will take a while. When it is done it should show you many, many updates available. Make sure to click "Hardware" on the left side under optional updates. This will usually have the drivers for your Sound and many other items. Check them all then "Review and Install Updates" Since you just reinstalled XP there will be close to 100 items (at least). You can uncheck everything but your Hardware drivers if you want to do those first!

I had a virus and i had to wipe everything out on my cpu and start over. I installed windows xp professional, and everythings back up and running but i cant get no sound. It says i have no audio device....


After installing Windows you need to install the Dell's device drivers such as audio driver and any other devices that are no installed. Check Device Manager for any devices that have a yellow ? mark - this indicates uninstalled devices.
You can download the drivers from Dell WEB site, thesupport 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 thebottom of the laptop and on the back or sides of a desktop. (If the Service Taglabel is missing then go into the BIOS setting and on one of the BIOS pages,the Service Tag number will be displayed). This will open the page where thespecific drivers for your model computer are located. Also make sure you selectthe Windows XP or Vista version of the drivers for your Windows operatingsystem. Click on this link to download the drivers: - http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/index.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=gen

No audio output after reinstalling windows xp sp2


Without knowing ur brand of computer i would have to assume that u did a clean install. Go to the manufacturer's website and download the drivers for ur brand of computer. Once u install all of the basic drivers, everything should be as good as new.

Downgrade Acer M1641 from Vista home premium to Windows XP


Its a driver incompatibility issue. Many hardware components designed for Vista are incompatible with XP. This means that the Realtek audio driver may be the Vista version. Also, some hardware has of yet no XP drivers, so your audio components were designed for Vista only.
While it may be possible to "force" the driver to work, it may involve a number of hacks to the Windows registry and other files.
