Question about Microsoft Windows XP Professional
I installed windows xp on my gateway solo 2150 laptop and now I have no sound. The sound driver listed that doesn't make any sound is a unimodem half duplex audio device. Any idea how I can get sound on my laptop again?
you could try downloading a Driver detector.
And it will state what Drivers are missing-unsopported-corrupt et,c. And possibly give you the Drivers file Name and recommend Where to Get It.

SOURCE: no sound since installing xp
Unfortunately your best bet on your Inspriron 531s is to go back to Vista. According to Dell, this system was specifically setup to run Vista and, therefore, no XP drivers are guaranteed to work on this model. Most of the time for onboard devices, if they are not listed on the site, they are usually native to the operating system and do not require a driver download. Dell does, however, have some XP drivers for this model listed on their support site here
The only audio driver listed is for a Creative Labs X-Fi sound card and I am not sure that is what you have. Your best bet is to uninstall your sound card drivers, reboot, then install these. Good Luck
