    Hello Mr.kwitch

    i tried that but it says that its not a correct audio driver

    I really fed up with this problem so i installed Vista as a secondary OS but as soon as i installed that i have downloaded a client server log on software in to that then initially that was warned me that this is not suitable for vista then i said ok..... but it promt me to made nessasary settings to made that software to install after that i have restarted the system and now its not getting loaded.One of the system file got corrupted so i have tried repair session by booting from DVD but it doesnt worked

    i can still use XP in My PC with out audio but no audio drivers are getting installed in my PC to Use XP.

    Iam surprised before i have installed XP In the Same PC for which i could install Audio drivers But then i formatted my PC now iam not in a situation to install that back

    Any way thanks for your Quick responce

    Do i really need to format my system again or else is there any way to get it worked agin both XP and Vista?

    Kindly let me Know

    Any answer and suggestions from u is Appreciated

Hi trinadhmusun,

Click here to go to the Dell website to download your driver:

Dell Inspiron 1525

Make sure the operating system is correct (I have it set to Windows Vista 32bit as default, which your unit should be) and download the only driver for audio located on that list. It says it is a STAC 92XX C-Major HD Audio, which you'll know if that is correct once you download and attempt to install it.

If you have problems installing the driver itself, let us know. Hope that helps!

I have istalled window XP and i had window vista...but after installation of new one my laptop inspiron 1525 sound system is not working..m trying to install sound driver but thats not properly...

You are download grading your Operating System to XP from Vista. Drivers for Vista and XP are diferent.

You can download the Audio drivers for XP from Dell Support Site for your laptop.
Check your "Device Manager" and uninstall the previous drivers and reinstall the XP Audio drivers downloaded from Dell Site.

Hope it helps.
