Dell used to have nice helpful pages, easy to use, find, and fix your problems
with their machines like this one for example
http://linux.dell.com/wiki/index.php/Ubuntu_7.10#Known_Issues but they moved
their pages and ruined the layout so they now look like this on
http://en.community.dell.com/wikis/linux/ubuntu-9-10.aspx and now it is
harder to find what you are looking for. For yours, do you have the ability
to perhaps boot into the prior kernel? The latest kernel was supposed to fix
XPS sound problems also but if you are not fully updated you may not have the
latest one installed.
