I just resolved this problem in my gx280 today.

Download the most recent audio driver from Dell and before
you run it in windows 7 you need to right click, select
properties, and set the compatibility to xp sp2.

The video driver needs to come from Intel. It's
win2k_xp142550
http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Det...
agr=Y&DwnldID=12531&lang=eng

You'll need to set that compatibility to win xp sp2 as well.

If you don't have the video driver installed you won't be able to
watch dvd's using powerdvd.

and just a heads up. Don't install the chip set driver pack. I
did and it slowed my startup down considerably. It took 10
minutes to start up. Once I removed my startup was back to
about a minute.

Also, if you're not already aware, the gx280 is hyper
threading compatible, but the factory setting in the bios has it
turned off. To turn it on you'll need to go into the bios (f2)
select the performance tab, select hyper threading, and turn
it on. You know it worked when you see two graphs for the
processor when you run the task manager.

Hope this helps
