I am using my tv as a computer monitor and i am trying to get sound to play through it. I have an auxilary cable hooked up but for some reason i cant get the sound to work. I then tried to get my old computer speakers to work and once again couldnt get sound to work. The sound used to work fine before butI recently had to re-install windows xp on to my computer and it hasnt worked since. Any suggestions?

Hello,
Go to Start>run... type in devmgmt.msc then hit ok. Are there any yellow or red marks showing up in Device manager? If so, please list them.

No wonder nothing's working... it looks like you didn't install all the important drivers. What kind of computer is this? If this is an OEM (dell, hp, etc), what is the FULL model number. If there is a Service tag, what is the serial number. If this is home-built, what kind of motherboard and graphics card is installed?

The model number you posted doesn't jive with Dell Inspirons. According to the Service tag HFVJDF1, you have a model 530. Please verify before installing any drivers from the following link I'm posting. You can go HERE to download your drivers.

Make sure the very first driver you install is the Chipset driver (4th on the list)... restart your machine as required. Then you can install all the rest that you're missing... ethernet, video, etc. Just keep installing and checking Device Manager until all the yellow marks are gone.

The drivers you download are self-extracting exe files. These files will extract to a location on your C drive which will most probably be C:\dell\drivers\xxxxxxx, where "xxxxxxx" is the name of the file you downloaded. If the drivers don't automatically install directly after extraction, you will need to go to the extraction folder to look for the setup.exe and run it... so pay attention to where the files are being extracted.

Let me know how it goes.
