Question about Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition

No sound since installing xp

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?

I downgraded from vista to xp and now I can not get sound. According to a driver scan my computer (dell inspiron 531s) has unimodem half-duplex audio device microsoft 7/1/2001 5.1.2535.0 The scan says driver is up to date, but on my computer under control panel/sounds and audio device/ it says no audio device. Can someone help me fix the problem at low cost?

    The half duplex audio device is probably your telephone modem. Anyway, do you have two systems without sound? A Dell and a Gateway?



    Do you have any unrecognized devices in your computer? Right-click 'My Computer', choose 'properties', then the 'hardware' tab, then click the 'device manager' button. Yellow circles indicate devices with no driver installed.



    Is the gateway model number correct? Drivers are here:

    but I can't find your model.

I just upgrade my laptop also. The fix seems to be this Driver Wdm4148 you can finf it here http://rapidshare.com/files/4436678/Wdm4148.zip.html You have to open Device Manager select your sound device it should have a ? since it's not working. Select update driver don't go through the windows update and select Install from a specific location. Now browse and find where you downloaded the file. I recommend the desktop Open it until you see the internal Wdm4148 and install. You'll have to do it twice for some reason but it works :)

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

when your friend give it to you did she/he also gives some cd installers? it says no audio device installed doesn't mean there's no audio card on it, it's just that windows xp doesn't support the audio card in the r40 laptop that you have. if you can do upgrade it to windows 7 it would be better because win 7 supports a lot of hardware. if you don't want just try to download the audio driver for you laptop. do you happened to know the audio card model of the laptop. you can see it as you turn on the your laptop you will see new hardware detected try to get the serial number of the device and ping me here so i can guide you were to download the sound card driver for you.thanks..

Hi There,

You need to update the sound drivers on your laptop, because the sound drivers on your computer is for XP and the drivers that you must be having should be for xp. So download and install the latest version of audio drivers for your computer.

Please follow the below link and download the sound drivers respective to your laptop,

Note : If your computer manufacturer's name is not listed in this website, then you might have to visit the manufacture's official website to download the latest audio drivers for your computer.

Enjoy installing the sound drivers and enjoy listening to some good music. !!!!

How to install XP in toshiba Satellite L45-S7423 laptop


You cannot uninstall Windows Vista, but you can reinstall your previous operating system, which then replaces Windows Vista. To reinstall your old operating system, you must have the original installation disc. Back up your programs and files, insert the installation disc into your computer, and then reinstall the old operating system. To regain the hard disk space used by Windows Vista, reformat the disk during the reinstallation process. After reinstalling your previous operating system, reinstall your programs and files.
