Wrong option, choose the second one.

If you can't get the download to work there is a direct download to the same driver in the second post here,

Thanks all-

I was apparently having a problem with Dell Download Manager. I downloaded the files to a flash drive using a laptop and transferred both the original driver files as well as the Vista drivers to the driver folder. Unfortunately, the system recognized none of them.

With the Vista drivers, I got a message stating the hardware wasn't supported. For the original drivers, I got a message stating that it couldn't find the drivers.

Any other thoughts?

Right click the Vista drivers, and in compatibility mode, tick run as admin, and then choose windows vista SP1 for compatibility, assuming this is an .exe.

Hi Ipaul626
Do not use the download manager it does not work right uninstall it clear the cookies then use IE the driver should install by just clicking on it it is an exe file.
I use the 64 bit version on my D8400 in win 7 with no problems when Vista came out that is the driver i used for 32 bit because Dell did not list a Vista driver for the older computers i cant really say if it works for 7 or not !
One other thing if Dell has a desktop system software utility driver for your 4600 you may want to try installing it first then the sound driver
Good Luck

sweeet

After much googling, I got my audio to work. I was installing win7 on my winxp. Somehow there wasn't any sound/video drivers (can check by "device manager"), so I downloaded the audio driver for vista and did an update for it. It works now!

Thanks, everyone for your help

Yes!

Majority of times, drivers come "zipped up" ie compressed, to speed up downloads.

Your system cannot (see the .exe) load the driver/s until you have 'unzipped' the file (de-compressed) first!
