I reinstalled the OS on one Dell Optiplex GX 150, earlier it was Windows 2000, now i updated to Windows XP, after the installation i found that there is problem with sound card driver, i tried on the Dell site and found one driver ("R45973") for the same, but the installation ends with some error like "Driver not found| Reboot your system, and run this setup again" after that also it is not functioning.

did you install the chipset driver? if not, do so first. - then install all the other drivers.

The Dell site may be reporting the wrong driver. It happens...
Go to start - programs - accessories - system tools - system information.
Click on "components", then on "problem devices". Your sound card will be listed there. Check the device and vendor number in the first line (DEV ....  VEN ....   ). Look those numbers up here:

This will identify the chip. Check the manufacturer's website, or try a driver database like Driverguide:

Good luck!
