You must reinstall your audio controller, or since you did reinstall windows XP on your system make sure that all the drivers for your inspiron 1300 is installed to make all your devices function properly on the system go to your manufacturers website and download all your driver from there.

find your service tag it will be asked in the drivers and download part of the website.

Hi, i just formatted my laptop and installed windows xp instead of vista but i have a prob with the sound,there is no sound.could someone help me?


XP most likely did not have your sound drives. Go to www.dell.com and plug in your service code to download your specfic drivers.
If this answers your question, I'd appreciate 4 thumbs. I do this for fun and do not get paid.

OUCH... Might need a new harddrive or motherboard. Does it even let you go into the bios? Maybe you can do a full reinstall to save you the dough.
