  • There are 3 different sound drivers listed on the drivers page do you know which sound device you have in your system?

  • On most Dell's with the SigmaTel integrated audio, DO NOT use the IDT HD Codec drivers or they will (in most cases) corrupt the audio system.  And, if they were installed there are, in every case we've come across so far, only two ways to get rid of the IDT drivers - that is a System Restore back to a date prior to first installing them or a complete clean reinstall. 

    IDT is the new name for SigmaTel, but the Dell SigmaTel sound modules need the Dell drivers.

    If a clean install was done, and the chipset drivers were skipped you cannot install the sound drivers as the sound module will not be detected.  This is a frequent omission by users when doing installs.
