  1. Thanks in advance for reading my post!

    I had to reinstall Windows XP Professional on my Dell Precision Workstation 370. Everything is fine expect I have no sound. I have uninstalled and reinstalled the SoundMax Intergrated Audio updated drivers many times. I have check to make sure intergrated sound is enabled in bios. I have updated bios. I have scanned my computers for errors and they were fixed, I checked to make sure nothing was muted, and a few other things I can't remember. I do have an exclamation point next to Multimedia Audio Controller under Other Devices in Device Manager, btu I cant seem to get rid of it.

    Any suggestions!
    Thanks!

    Yes, I installed the chipset drivers. I have also tried installing the sound rivers 1) off the dell resource CD 2) from the dell website and 3) directly from Sound MAX, none of the above work.
