I have the same problem, except that I run a dell Inspiron 530 on XP PRo, and I stopped getting sounnd after installing a Windows update. Wich update? I coudn't tell under torture!!! I have "audio Intégré" (dell #3132758), and also a Realteck sound for complex audio effects that I dont need nor like. I made all the Windows recommended checks, up to checking the BIOS, and everywhere, the diagnostic was "This device is working properly" or something like that... Pleeeeeease HELP !!! :thumbsup:

NB: I have no sound at all, not in Windows Media more than anywhere else, no system sounds... I do see a color bar moving up and down when I perform the windows recommended tests, but no sound. I can hear sound produced by connection being made when I unplug or plug the speakers, but that's all.

:flowers: I visited the DELL driver download page and found an update for my Realteck audio, but it says it's for Vista, so I'm not sure I should install it... On the other hand, I think thatI've read in the details for a recent Windows update that it would make my system more compatible with Vista or Vista capabilities...

Can someone help? :thumbsup:

It may help you to find your service tag number and use it to locate the original drivers for your computer.

Once you locate the service tag, go to Dell Support and plug it in...That should take you to the proper drivers for your machine. I definately wouldn't install anything other than what is required for your system...Vista Drivers probably won't do you any good at all.

Does this look like an OldGrumpyBastard or what?
