try installing the driver from this page, it worked for me.
Thank you! Unfortunately the file R56339.exe installed just fine but didn't fix the problem. I did find another answer and link for R142745.zip; but, the link is broken and the Dell site doesn't have information on it (much less the file)! The problem is a Dell 520 which has a Multimedia Audio driver not found.
Thanks anyway for trying.

Neither R56339.exe nor R142745.exe is the right file.
Never go to those non dell sites they seed the files deliberately with malware.
Thank you so much for the post!! Been trying to fix my no sound problem for nearly 2 and half months, finally all sotred out. I just downloaded that R97809.EXE and ran it, restarted the comp and boom all fixed! I really appreciate the effort people like you put into helping others, I registered to this site just to thank you lol. You are a LEGEND!
Hi all i hope i am not to late to respond to this post.
I have the same problem, just am running on windows 7 on my dell GX520 and have been uninstalling some old software on my pc and the soundmax media controller was accidentally part of the ones uninstall and now i have problems installing it, as i have no sound. I downloaded the R97809 and unzipp the file and hit the installation button and got an error message (This Operating system is not supported by this software ) i would assume they are referring to the windows 7 software, can someone please help as i cannot seem to find a version for windows 7 to install on my desktop pc. Thanks in advance.
You have to use at LEAST the vista drivers. R97809 is for XP.
The Microsoft catalog Drivers work with windows 7 ,8, 10
DirectX June 2010 is also Highly Recommended.
Download file, Extract to a folder, RUN DXSETUP.EXE as Administrator.
The Analog Devices AD198X codec does have WHQL drivers from the Microsoft Catalog.
