Inspiron 9400 upgrade from XP Media to 7 Ultimate - now no sound!

Hi

I notice some similar threads but none that relate to my setup. I have a 4y old Inspiron 9400 laptop with XP Media edition installed when new. I recently bought Windows 7 Ultimate and upgraded - very easy and great improvement!!! I now have no sound. I have no idea what sound card etc I have in other than this info from Belarc -

Its probably a driver. Since your system is so old there are only vista driver.. They can be used if installed in compatibility mode. To do that right cleick the installer>properties>compatibility>choose vista.

Go to dell with your express service tag here . Drivers & Downloads

download the correct driver (32bit or 64bit) and install.
