Need Vostro 2420 cirrus logic HD audio drivers for win xp

I bought vostro 2420 (V2420R, celeron 1000m ver without OS), after installed windows xp, I got some problems with the drivers for xp system since you don't have any of it to download (only win7&8 available). Now I have most of the drivers done, but I can't find any compatible cirrus logic HD audio drivers. Now I don't have any sound available for my NB, could you please help fix this issue, thanks.

Try Cirrus Logic - but bear in mind that XP goes end of life on April 9, 2014 -- meaning it'll be useless for Internet applications (i.e., no more security updates).  It's time to upgrade to 7.

Hello Sam Wu,

Vostro 2420 was never tested with Windows XP due to which drivers compatible with Windows XP are unavailable in Dell Support site. I also tried searching for the Cirrus Logic audio drivers in their website, but could not locate the drivers compatible with Windows XP. I would agree with Ejn63 and suggest you to upgrade to Windows 7.

Thanks & Regards

I have both windows xp and windows 7, for some reasons I prefer to use xp. Is there any way to find a generic audio driver for xp??? I just need it work, no need to have a good performance.

I don't understand. I would not expect Dell to be able supply a driver for an operating system that it does not support, and on the Vostro 2420 it only supports Win 7 & 8.

Suppose you had installed Windows 95. Would you have expected Dell to supply an audio driver for that operating system?

Did someone at Dell tell you that it would support XP on the Vostro 2420?

whatever, I won't buy anything made by Dell anymore. I bought this one on line and it's shipped with no windows OS. If it only supports windows 7&8, they should put this info out. I don't know what's wrong with you, but windows xp has it's market still, lots of people still use it and that's a good enough reason to support it.

I can get all the other drivers, compatible with windows xp from OTHER notebook brand, like HP, Lenovo etc. since they use the same chip, but I can't find a driver from Dell, what's wrong with that?? The other players can provide similar products and in the same price, most important is their support is much better since they support windows xp still.

You are a Dell fan, you will justify everything for them, but it won't solve my problem, I need a cirrus logic HD audio driver for windows xp, that's all.
