install sp32646.exe. then install sp34386.exe.
now install the dell driver-conexant one.
this should fix the audio media recognition problem.

I also can't install sp34836, some 'cannot find media' message pops up.

Is there any way to resolve this?

Thanks a bunch

My Dell A840 laptop came with Windows Vista Basic Edition and I downgraded it to Windows XP Pro lately post which I faced issue with audio drivers even after using the Dell driver CD/DVD which came with the laptop.

Issue: Laptop had sound problem (i.e. Audio drivers were not detecting hardware).

Symptoms: On installing driver was getting error "Driver Installation Failed: Could not find the MEDIA device for this device".

SOLUTION:Here are the two steps I followed to fix the issue:

1. Downloaded the UAA (Universal Audio Architecture) Driver

2. Now installed the Audio Driver downloaded.

That does it :)
