Hi Sleepydude ...
Hopefully good news,
I chanced installing the Dell Driver utilities CD...
and it seemed to have listed the drivers I needed and taken me to Dells website or relevant websites for each required download.
So I chanced attempting to install the ones that I thought I needed as well as the two ones you mentioned.
and at the moment it seems that it has installed them and I know have my sound working...
Not sure what some of the other files may have done or how they may have effected my Laptop..
Time may tell..
One thing that it has done is reduce the size of what I see on my screen by making things much smaller than they were..
But I was able to play a Youtube video and hear the sound OK..
One other file I downloaded was a Video File ATI AGP XPress 1150 and that seemed to take a long time to load..
I am not really sure if I needed it or not..
Other files which I have not downloaded are Modem ones...
I dont know if this will also help my laptop run better..
or if I sill need to do some other AV scans..
Or to see if it runs better when I go on yahoo and click on news pages and se if it scrolls better without freezing up.
Overall.. MY laptop has few files on compared to another one that I have.. so maybe one would think it should not really have too many problems..
I just tried it to see how it runs for a while...
and it still seems to have similar issues.. of having problems scrolling yahoo news articles and at times the mouse seems to freeze up and I cannot even close pages by clicking on the
page close button "Xs' at the top of the RHS of a page..
I suspect its still some sort of malware or keylogger type issue..
When I purchased the Laptop, initially I rarely used it.. and if I did I was not really using it to play video or sound related things...and so cannot recall if the Sound was working or not...
But sometime Later I thought I had used it to play videos and could hear sound..
Now whether or not it had sound on it or not or if it had something happen to i that ened up deleting the relevan sound files etc, I am not sure..
But I also wonder why it did not have the Sound files on when I bought it..
Although the person who sold it me gave me the CD disc for the files as it happens.
Maybe he had wiped the Hardrive before he sold it to me and just had not re loaded certain files..
For the last few years even though I have had the machine for a while... I had some familiy crisis occur and had been under a lot of stress..
so I was not greatly aware of certain things over that time...and thats why I cannot recall for sure what the circumstnaces were.
