Hi everybody. I need some help, as I have reinstalled Windows XP on my Dimension 3100 -- all went well, apart from the fact I do need the audio drivers. The point is I do not know which audio card is installed in it. Can I get the specific driver? Do I need to report the Serrvice Tag or the Computer Identity? Thanks a lot in advance!
Solved! Go to Solution.
Thank you for the message, here is the Audio driver for your system.
Make sure you go through this properly.
It is important, very important to restart the system after certain driver installation.
Let me make it easier for you. Follow these steps. Click on the name to download and install that driver.
Hi Tolson Alva,
I have reloaded Windows XP Home onto Dell Dimension 3100. There is no sound (as for Lorna). I need the driver for the integrated on-board sound, which I believe is APOSRC4.
When I try to download this, Dell Driver Download Manager dialog box states "Session data is corrupt. Please go to Drivers and Downloads to select the file(s) again - APOSRC4.zip". I have retried the download several times on different days - always with this result. (I am able to download the other Dimension 3100 driver for a sound card - which is not the one I need!)
Is the driver itself corrupt as it lies on the Dell server? If it is, is there a workaround. I realise that this is an old piece of hardware, but would be grateful for any help you can offer.
Yes that file was corrupt and the techs are onto getting it fixed.
It could take a while, in the meantime download this alternate driver and let me know if it works. Creative Labs Integrated Audigy invitation
The SigmaTel sound is what you want. HERE is the Dell SigmaTel Driver for the 3100 and Windows XP.
DO NOT use the Dell Download manager. It has caused many users problems. Uninstall the Download manager and any cookies for it, then restart the PC and download the driver direct. Click on the Blue Download button.
