    Good Morning,

    Here is a link to the drivers for the Dimension 2400.

    http://support.dell.com/support/down...iceTag=JVY7K51

    Just select the Windows XP operating System, and the Audio driver is the first one.

    It looks like it uses the Intel Chipset. The Video Driver is on the Second tab, under all Dimension 2400 files.

    Looks like a nice machine.

    Good Luck

    Have a Great day.

    Clay, Just a warning.

    I would not try doing the BIOS upgrade unless you are having big problems.

    Many times it will screw up the motherboard, then you do need to buy a new one.

    The Bios should be fine with the hardware on your motherboard, Intel is the most stable.
    Works good , last a long time.

    MicroCenter is a cool place.

    You might want to look at your system devices under the control panel;

    Control Panel - System - Hardware - Device Manager

    Look for devices that are in Red or Yellow, You can delete them (They are not working anyway) then reboot your system and the drivers will be reinstalled.

    That sometimes will fix problem devices, that were not installed properly. The drivers should be on your machine or your install disk.

    That might be worth a try.

    Good Luck.

    Have a great evening.

    Hello Clay,

    I am glad that you made some progress.

    I don't know why you had a problem getting your audio driver.

    Here is a direct link to the driver that your system uses, That is if it is the original one built into your motherboard.

    http://support.dell.com/support/down...&fileid=122481

    Did you add another audio card, or are you using the one that is integrated into the Dell Motherboard ?

    Have a Great day.
