One more time - you need SP3 to get hi-def sound. You may be able to add the UAA HD audio hotfix as an alternative, but why bother? If you're going to run XP at this stage in it's life, it should be XP SP3. Is there some reason why you don't want to install it? Get it here & save a copy to a disc for future use:

Windows XP Service Pack 3 - 316MB

BTW, if your system came with Win7 pre-installed, why would you downgrade to an 11 yr old OS?

How do you know it's the correct driver? Look for a service tag # on the laptop. When you find it, go to the Dell site and enter it. That should take you to the page that contains the drivers for your computer. Install the correct drivers. Remove any incorrect drivers first. Good Luck.

The correct and only place is DELL Support site, though Dell 430 is not the actual model designation, also you should have XP Service Pack 3 installed:

Googling is quicker than waiting for an answer....

As Jolicloud stated, you need SP3. No SP3 = no hi-def audio. And it's tough to help without the proper model number. I know it's not Dell430. Could it be an XPS? If it is, XP wasn't an option therefore Dell offers no XP drivers for it. However, it lists the Vista/Win7 drivers for Sound Blaster X-Fi XtremeGamer audio, so you may find XP drivers at the Creative website.

If it's not an XPS 430, what is it??

Looks like the OP's comment which was # 5 was removed for some reason?
