    i TRIED installing sound drivers *which i know is what i need* "Setup is unable to detect a supported product on your system. Please ensure that your product is properly installed before running this Setup program.
    Setup will exit" i get this however.
    I am using a XPS 420 and upgraded to windows 8.1 awhile ago.

    Dell does not support Win 7/8/8.1 on this system. You will likely need to install a PCI Windows 8.1 compatible sound card or a USB connected Win 8.1 compatible sound card. The latest OS that Dell supports is Vista and the Vista drivers are incompatible with Windows 8.1.
    The Dell hardware is mostly proprietary in this model, thus I doubt you will find any useable Sigmatel sound drivers.

    I used to work the Dell forums and users upgrading older systems to new OS' had to install sound cards on many models as Dell drivers were not available.
