    I recently reinstalled windows XP onto my computer, and now I cannot get the speakers to function.

    When I try to play a music file, I get the message:
    and when I go into Sounds & Audio Devices in the Control panel, it says no audio device is found. I also tried going into add hardware but an audio device is not found there either. I tried downloading the driver from this link http://support.dell.com/support/dow...&typeid=-1&dateid=-1&formatid=-1&fileid=19666 and it was only the speaker test... not a way to get it to function. Can somebody please help me out?

    Thank you!

    What make/model of Dell do you have? Do you know name of the driver required?

    Dimension E310. I have no clue what drive I would need.

    Do you think this would work?

    When I save it to my desktop, it saves as Delldownloadmanager.exe rather than R114282.EXE and no self extracting window appears when I double click it.. it just asks if I'd like to open it in internet explorer, ect.
