For this i went to dell site and download all sound drivers both vista and Xp. no drivers are supporting. I contacted DELL technical peoples also on phone.Whatever they told me on phone i done all of these .But no result. If we remove all drivers in Device manager in control pannal that time it give small beep sound. I unable find wheather it is generating from motherboard or speakers. pls tell me what i can do this time.
I think problems in dell drivers only.Becoz they developed for XP long back.But now vista is introducing new features.Thats why its not supporting.Its generating some error code.

I can see how vista would screw up drivers through automatic updates. You could not be the 1st.
There are driver cleaners out there.

Make sure you know what chipset you have, probably AC97 and use the driver cleaner to remove it.
Reboot and install the driver from dells web site.

How can I install drivers for dell inspiron 6400?


Hi.

Click on the link at the bottom of the page to open Dell download page. Using the form on the Dell page, choose the OS (XP or Vista), the download links will be listed on the lower part of the Dell page.

Download one by one the drivers listed on the last part of the Dell page (audio, video etc.) by clicking the link for each driver.

Save the drivers into a folder, renaming them as audio, video etc. When you have finished downloading all drivers install them one by one onto the Inspiron 6400 by executing the files that you just finished downloading.

You may need to restart the computer after installing each driver.Ensure that the driver installation is complete before restarting.

Ensure that you are using an account with administrator privileges while installing the drivers. If using Vista you may need to click the right button of the mousepad on the installer file, and choose 'Run as Administrator' from the drop down menu.

Here the download page: Drivers & Downloads

Note: drivers for Windows 7 and Windows 64 OS are not available.

Regards.

DEll Inspiron 6400 problems


The best place to download drivers is always the manufacturer's website. The Dell drivers for this system are found here :)

http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/driverslist.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=gen&ServiceTag=&SystemID=INSPIRONI6400/E1505&os=WW1&osl=en&catid=&impid=

The Dell website is very good for providing the correct drivers, I use it all the time. The problem might be in the sequence in which you installed the drivers. ALWAYS start with the chipset driver, as this gives the OS access to the various motherboard components that the other drivers rely upon.

Also, there may be several motherboards used for the same model so you have to install the correct drivers for your motherboard. The Inspiron 6400 has 3 different audio drivers. The most common was actually the last listed, the Sigmatel STAC. But I believe this model also uses special HiDefinition sound.

Read about Microsoft UAA (kb888111.exe) from here:
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/888111/en-us

But UAA is not available directly from Microsoft. A good link to download kb888111.exe here:
http://geekswithblogs.net/lorint/archive/2006/06/11/81540.aspx
Then install the sound driver. It should recognize the sound card and your audio should work.

Dell Inspiron E1505 Audio


Hi artifax,

I have a suggestion/solution for this that I need you to try. Here it is:

first, go to add or remove programs, look for Creative/SoundBlaster and Sigmatels listed there and uninstall every one of them. Then, go to Device manager and uninstall Creative/Soundblaster/Sigmatel under sound and game controllers. reboot the system.

now download and run this,
E1505/6400 BIOS
http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/download.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=gen&releaseid=R158849&SystemID=INSPIRONI6400/E1505&servicetag=&os=WW1&osl=en&deviceid=10430&devlib=0&typecnt=0&vercnt=9&catid=-1&impid=-1&formatcnt=1&libid=1&fileid=212350

then download and install this,
Sigmatel Audio Driver
http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/download.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=gen&releaseid=R171789&SystemID=INSPIRONI6400/E1505&servicetag=&os=WW1&osl=en&deviceid=8907&devlib=0&typecnt=0&vercnt=3&catid=-1&impid=-1&formatcnt=1&libid=3&fileid=235761

Do not install any Creative first, then let me know if this works.

I'll be waiting for your reply.

Karlox™ :)
