Download the Realtek drivers from Dell's web site. Avoid "upgrading" them.

Are you sure the Dell is wired for AC'97?

Are you sure you have a Realtek audio chip? When I search for drivers for a DImension 4700 I find two things:

1) No mention of Windows 7 support,

2) The audio driver provided is for Analog Devices ADI 198x Integrated Audio:

What does Win7 say (Device Manager, Sound video and game controllers) ?
