Please can any one give me some advice, I bought a Dell laptop which had vista on, could not get on with it so wiped the hard drive and installed xp pro all went well but now I am getting no sound and in the control panel under sounds everything is greyed out abd it says codecs are not installed. Any help will be much appreciated

If that fails, post the model of your lappy...It's probably got the Realtek High Defenition Audio chip...

Check your manual for the chip that you have, or visit the Dell site:
