Download Everest Home Edition

Run it, click + next to computer then summary, look on right for multimedia / audio adapter

Visit the manufacturer's site to look for XP drivers


Please set a system restore point before you install anything


If you are unable to find anything, or are unsure if the files are correct, please post the make and model here before you download anything

You will get the audio in a few places

The motherboard CD (Dell probably supplied this)

This is the complete list of drivers you can download for the Inspiron 5150

Dell have this but at 4MB it probably works in combination with files installed from the motherboard CD
