Windows 7: Dell XPS M1333 clean install of Windows 7 Ultimate, and now NO sound

Dell XPS M1333 clean install of Windows 7 Ultimate, and now NO sound

I have a Dell XPS M1333 Laptop that originally came with Windows Vista Home Edition. I did a wipe of the hard drive, where I then did a clean install of Windows 7 Ultimate. Now that I have done a clean install of Windows 7 Ultimate there is NO sound at all. Also, I did a check in Device Manager to see the audio driver did install correctly, but still have no sound. In addition, Device Manager shows the Base System Device did not install correctly. I tried doing the auto search on the internet for the driver, but no luck. Can this be the cause of my issue with NO sound? Does anyone have any suggestions? If anyone has a suggestion, please send me an email to: Cruzzro@yahoo.com Thank You!

Hi Welcome to Seven Forums .. You need to Install the Chipset Driver ... Then see if that helps with the sound problem ..

Maxie has it right. The chipset drivers are what give the set of instructions and tell the devices connected to the board what to do(sound, etc.) So yes hopefully installing those will help ya.

Hi there ... I could not find your Model Number on the Dell Website .. Why could you not Install the Driver ? Was it an INF file .. Try the following ...

1. Place the driver installation file on the Desktop.

2. Right Click the driver installation file and select Properties/Compatibility Tab. Select Windows Vista


3. Click Apply/OK.


4. Right Click the file and select the Run As Administrator option to install.
