Hi there thanks for the quick reply, I tried what you told me and during installation it keeps ending with exit error=device object not found restart the setup and try again. Do you know why it would be doing that?????

Hi kamboking,

Download and run a Belarc scan. http://www.belarc.com/free_download.html
Follow the prompts. In the upper right corner of the scan you will see your Dell
Service tag and a Dell download link. It will give you the correct audio driver.
Save it to your desktop. Double Click the icon and it will install to the correct
folder. Reboot your computer...
