I re-installed Windows XP on my Dell Inspiron 530 but now the sound doesn't work, CDs or Internet. Device Manager doesn't list a sound device but I can see RealTek Audio files listed in my backed up documents. Thoughts or suggestions? Thanks.

Start HERE and download the 3rd driver in the Audio section which should be the Realtek driver. Let me know if it works for you.

Whoah. How'd you do that? You have set a new speed record for computer fixes, my friend. Thank you very much. After the download, the computer shut down and I heard a magical sound I haven't heard in two weeks; the Windows shut down tune. Thank you very much. There may be more trouble in the future so I'll be back.

You are very welcome and I am glad I could help.
Just a word of advice though.
Since you now have the link for the drivers I would suggest downloading all them and when it asks where to save it put it in a folder on your desktop. Rename all the files for the driver it is..IE Video, Sound, Nic, Chipset.
Once you have them all saved in the folder then burn a cd with all the drivers on it. This way you will have them in the future should you ever need them.
Congratulations MNWinedude. :unsure: for a successful resolution for your issue.

I'm glad we could help and please let us know how everything works out for you.
