Having problems with your Dell Studio XPS 16 Notebook ?

Missing hd audio codec

\015 I recently downgraded my Dell Studio XPS 1640 laptop from Vista to XP Pro. So far I've managed to install drivers for everything except the sound. I've tried loading every IDT sound driver from Dell's site and several from other sites. They all either give me a message about not matching my hardware or that I have no hardware installed. Does anyone have a solution for this?\015

Answers :

Hi, I was searching for this driver on the Internet and it seems to be your lucky day, here I found the IDT drivers for Audio, http://rapidshare.com/files/190141494/PIDT001.zip for Windows XP for the Studio XPS 1640, now because this computer was designed for Windows Vista, Dell will not be responsible for the use of this driver, nor any future damage that it might cause, not that I've seen the case, but Online forums state that this driver is 100% working with no issues, if you happen to have one, please let me know, the link is a rapidshare download server, just follow the instruction on the free user and go ahead.\015\012Regards.\015\012P.S. Here are the Dell Drivers for Vista, in case when Windows 7 comes out you want to just do the upgrade option with vista, and it should solve everyones issues. http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/driverslist.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=gen&ServiceTag=&SystemID=STUDIOXPS16&os=WLH&osl=en&catid=&impid=
