    try these steps:

    1. Update your windows
    > then install the sound driver

    2. if step 1 didnt worked:
    > Boot your machine into safe mode and install the sound driver.

    Conexant devices are pretty generic, you should be able to find various compatible drivers for the device. I recently had trouble finding a driver for such a device on a friend's computer but I ultimately found it on the manufacturer's site. Perhaps Dell has some similar resources...
