Question about Dell Inspiron 710m Notebook
I have a dell inspiron 710m windows Xp and i'm having problems:
I cant play dvds or cd it says - Dvd decoder not installed. Can't hear music it says - No audio hardware. Also - No active mixer devices available
and when i go to add hardware theres yellow "?" next to the following: Base System Device, Base System Device,
Ethernet Controller, Mass Storage Controller, Multimedia Audio Controller, Network Controller, Pci Modem, Sm Bus Controller, Pci Modem, Sm Bus Controller, Universal Bus (Usb) Controller, Video Controller, Video Controller (Vga Compatible)
Go to "Device Manager" and look if any yellow or red alerts are being displayed next to any devices. To access the "Device Manager" go to the 'Control Panel", "Administrative Tools", "Computer Management" and select "Device Manager" located in the left side column.
If there is an alert, double click on that device to determine the problem, i.e.… device not configured, cannot start this device, etc…
It sounds like all your software drivers got blown away or can’t load. If that’s the case, try running diagnostics. Press and hold the <Fn> key while powering the system on. This will initiate a diagnostic routine to check your hardware.
