I'm a bit of a novice, so please be gentle with me...I had the BSOD on my Dell inspiron 1525 XP o/s a while ago, had to reboot from a CD and lost all my files etc etc.
I have reinstalled almost everything, using a 'chipset' (?) drivers download, however I still cant get sound? On device manager, it says I am missing:
'Other Devices: High Definition on Audio Bus'
Under 'Sound, Video and Game Controllers': 'Sigmatel HIGH definition Audio Codec'
and finally under the heading 'display adaptors' a 'video controller'
I have tried downloading from Dell site and it doesn't seem to let me download the drivers (just keeps downloading driver manager and not letting me download the actual drivers I want??) , I have searched forums, downloaded loads of recommended ones and NOTHING is working.The Sigmatel I used to have comes up with a little box saying it is 'not suitable for this operating system and the installer will now close', but it worked before the BSOD happened ( I lost sound before)??? I have no clue what i'm doing really, I am not technically minded so I could really use your help!!
