Did you do an upgrade or a clean install? Doing an upgrade might be the problem. Backup all your files with Easy Transfer and do a clean install.

Hi and welcome Zealme

In your zeal you have forgotten to use a period "."

First
I have the exact same computer running win 7 and with the correct drivers (which you can get from support.dell.com) everything works.

Lets start again
go type device manager in search
Go to the sound tab. Is your device there and is it working properly (it should not have a yellow triangle.)

There should be no "unkown" devices listed with yellow triangles. Let us know if there is
