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

Don't try to edit the xp boot.ini or the vista bootloader. It only leads to other problems and headaches.
Try this first: Take note as to which drive has vista on it, put your vista installation cd in the drive and let it boot to the "installation window", then choose "repair", then "startup repair." Make sure you choose the drive that already has vista on it. Let that run and when it re-boots you should then be given a choice to boot to vista or "other windows".
There is also a (free) program called EasyBCD. Download that, read the directions and have at it.
If none of that works, you'll have to do a clean install. Install XP on one drive first, then Vista on the second drive in that order. The Vista bootloader will pick up the XP. However, XP is NOT forward compatible and will not recognize the Vista bootloader. Make sure that you don't have any flashdrives or media cards plugged in before doing the install.
Another approach would be to shrink the Vista volume, creat a new partition, then install Linux Ubuntu that partition. Linux will detect all of the OS's and create a boot menu. Unfortunately, you'll lose about 5 gigs to the Linux OS and it's swap partition, but then, you get to goof around with Linux :-)

There are two options, and you can as well do them one after the other... First, restart your PC, and at the booting process/DOS, press F8, It would take you to some directory list, follow the navigation instructions on the screen to know how to move up and down, all you need is just up, down and enter key. Come down to "Safemode with networking" it will enable to LAN/Internet driver that would make you connect to the internet because you would need it, meanwhile safemode will restore all your drivers for you. After the booting completion, you should see a black screen as you desktop background image, and a word "safe mode" written in four places around the four corners of your screen.. However, after that, try and locate the Device Manager menu on your computer, you can easily get there by clicking on the Control Panel on your Start Menu. When you get there you would see the list of your computer hardwares, look for "Sound,video and games controller", click on the extension/directory button, you would see "High Definition Audio Device", and that is your Sound Driver...
The only program to install to make it work better is to update the your sound driver again... You can do that by right clicking on High Definition Audio Device>Update Driver Software, choose the internet update because that would download the updated one for you from Microsoft, After then restart your PC, do not hit the F8 hot-key anymore, allow it to boot normal.. and your sound should be working....
