Hi folks, after recovering an image of a partition using Acronis, from a back up I now find myself in the strange position of having no audio? I had a quick look at dell site for what I thought could have been a driver issue, but after DL the correct driver for my machine it won't let me install and the log file says its scheduled for next reboot, have tried this a few times & I'm still having no joy..Any ideas...

Also see if your Dell needs sigmatel hd audio driver.
Mine ( Dell Inspiron ) does.

Agree with David, the most probable problem is the audio device is not installed.
