A couple of questions, screen resolution and sound

So I just downloaded Windows 7 and the screen is not showing up full size on my laptop. I went to the control panel and went to the screen resoltution thing and it is set on the largest setting; 1034 x 768, and only has two options which are 1024 x 768 and 800 x 600 on the slider. Any one know how to make it full screen?
Also on the sound thing on the taskar it has a red x and says no audio output device. Anyone know where I can download one?


Thanks

Go to Dell's website and select your laptop. There should be a drivers tab (or something) with all the drivers.

I checked Dell's website for your laptop and it seems the Inspiron 8100 model only has drivers up to XP (which makes no sense), but they may still work.
