I am trying to download the audio driver from support.dell.com for an Optiplex 780 running Windows 7, but I keep getting a '404 file not found' error. I've tried downloading alternatives from external sites but I get an error message that says the driver isn't for my computer hardware. Help!

Try this: Go to the support link again as you've done in the past. After you chose the audio driver you want to download, choose the "save to file" option instead of the "install or run" option. Be sure to write down the EXACT path where it is going to be saved so you can locate it.
Then, open control panel, system, hardware devices, and select your audio device. Right click the mouse, scroll to properties, left click, select update driver, and use the BROWSE option to get to where you saved the drivers and then the computer will do the rest...Remember, you must point the computer to the proper ".inf " file as that is where the driver is.

Dell OptiPlex 780 with Windows 7 does not play my cd's or dvd's and is missing from device manager


Sounds like a problem of non-detection by the system. If the drive is missing from My Computer then it definitely is a non-detection issue. Try using this file (it's an exe when unzipped) and only required double-clicking.

Problem on Dell OptiPlex 780 Desktop


You are going to need to start your computer in safe mode and find the XP drivers that will work for your motherboard manually from the web (Assuming that there are any created for XP for that board)..

That blue screen you keep getting is because you don't have the correct driver loaded for something on the motherboard that it needs to boot correctly and your XP install couldn't find it on the web to install automatically.

Start your PC and press F8 several times until the boot menu comes up. Then select "Safe Mode with Networking".

Now start looking for your drivers here:

Need video driver dell optiplex 170l for windows 7


Drivers can be found at this link:
http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/driverslist.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=gen&os=WW1&osl=en&catid=&impid=&SystemID=PLX_PNT_P4_CEL_170L

However, you might want to consider the instructions below, as many people have had the same issue you're having with getting those drivers to work with Windows 7:

You may need to install the drivers in compatibility mode for Windows XP

To run the driver installation program in compatibility mode
Configure the driver installation program to run in Microsoft Windows XP Service Pack 2 compatibility mode. To do this, follow these steps:
1. Locate the executable file for the driver installation program.
2. Right-click the file, and then click Properties.
3. In the PackageName Properties dialog box, click the Compatibility tab.
4. Click to select the Run this program in compatibility mode for check box, click Windows XP (Service Pack 2) in the Run this program in compatibility mode for list, and then click OK.
5. Double-click the executable file to start the installation program.

I need the mulimedia audio controler for dell optiplex sx280 running windows 7


There is no specific driver for your Dell for Win 7. I suggest you to use the windows xp drivers (in case you don't have, download them from this link). Before run the installation file right click on it, choose properties and at the compatibility tab check Windows XP sp3 compatibility and hit apply - ok. Install the drivers as usual.
