Thanks Chris for your suggetions. Windows did say there was a driver
installed. I tried replacing this with the "Analog devices AD1885
Integrated Audio" driver from the Dell website (the first one on the
list when you put in Opliplex GX150 and Windows 2000). When that didn't
work I switched back to Linux because I am more familiar with Linux
than WIndows.

I was rather hoping someone would point out something silly I had
missed. Like when I bought a second hand Toshiba laptop and didn't
notice it had a tiny volume control knob on the front!
