I just reinstalled Windows XP on my Dell 2400 desktop and I reinstalled a bunch of drivers but I can't find the audio driver. I can't listen to music or hear any sounds from computer. I know you can download drivers online but I don't know which one(s) I need or where to get it. Can someone help me?

Sometimes you can find the type of audio card listed in the BIOS. If you are brave, you can take the cover off the system, find the audio card and find out what it is from there.
If it is built into the motherboard, you can look for the name on one of the chips near the audio ports. Just don't touch any of the chips as static discharge can kill them...

Chances are, if it is the integrated with the motherboard it is on the Dell website. ADI Integrated sound card?? Which ones have you tried?
