I had to reinstall XP SP1 Home on my Dimension 2400 Series Intel 4 with a 845G chipset family. It has an Integrated ADI 1885 Audio (manufacter?), but no sound! In the Sounds and Audio Devices panel it says no audio devices. On the Device Manager it has MUltimedia controller with a yellow ! . I've downloaded audio codex and I tried to load a driver but it requests the SP1 CD so it can find a dmk.sys file. I tried to find it manually thru all the SP1 folders and sub-folders and within sub-folders on my PC. No luck. I need help!! Any ideas or suggestions?
It is best to check on the Dell Support Community for confirmation as it is an OEM product.
Try to install Windows SP2
Then install the audio driver from the DELL Link
All the best,
