hello,
i have recently re-installed windows onto my computer and everything seems to be working fine except for the fact that i have no sound. i know for a fact that the speakers work because i was using them when i was using knoppix to save my data. There is no "speaker icon" on the task bar so i went into the "control panel>sound and audio devices". There it tells me that there is "no audio device" and i can't change anything because all of the options have been greyed out.So I went searching online and tried the following approaches that worked for others:
1:I went into BIOS and made sure that the audio was on (it was)
2:I went into the "device manager" and tried to delete all items under "sound,
video, and game controllers" and restart my computer but it wouldn't let me
delete anything
3:I also went to dell.com to find the drivers i needed and "Analog Devices ADI
198x" came up but when I tried to install this it said the HDA Audio Bus Driver
was missing

I'm really desperate at this point so if anyone has any other suggestions please help me out....i'm extremely new at this and don't really know what to do...
THANK YOU!

What you need is KB Update KB888111, the update for High Definition Audio in Windows.
This is available from various places, including Dell, or you'll get it automatically if you install XP Service Pack 3.

In Device Manager delete what's already there for the sound driver, typically flagged up as "Multimedia Audio Controller" or "High Definition Device on Audio Bus". Then select from the menus, Scan for Hardware Changes. It should then either morph into something else OR you can run the installer again from the driver you've already downloaded from Dell's website.

Something not right here. You shouldn't have "Analog Devices ADI 198x" and Realtek sound as I very much doubt you have two sound cards in that machine.
What is your Dell model number please? Is it the Dell Dimension 1100 Desktop?

o really...i only installed those because i downloaded "driver robot" and it gave a whole bunch of drivers that needed to be installed so i went ahead and installed them
the computer model is a dell dimenision b110 desktop (i think that's the same as a 1100...right?)

According to Dell it is the ADI 198x sound card.
http://support.dell..../...tid=&impid= and expand the Audio section.

You should always download drivers from the computer or board manufacturer because even very slight revisions of the drivers will not work on all sound cards of that particular "brand" if you like. Generic drivers are also not supported because there's hundreds, thousands of variations on how they work, how they are wired on the board and so on and so forth. Programs like Driver Robot will only offer generic drivers matched against a database. Just because your sound card is recognised by Driver Robot as an ADI doesn't mean it's the revision of ADI it thinks it is.

That may be the quickest solution considering you now have multiple versions of the same driver on the machine for the same sound card.
