Question about Dell Inspiron 6000 Notebook

1 Answer

No sound Hi, the sound on my 6000 quit working. When using the sound controls I get the little window but sound is coming out. I checked the device manager and it does not show a sound device installed. All that is shows is two audio codecs and one legacy audio driver. Does anyone have any ideas? Thanks

Re: No sound

The drivers you mention are related to your sound drivers to they are installed. Run this programme to see if there is a driver problem, click Start>Run then type 'dxdiag' and hit enter. It could be the motherboard sound chip thats failed.

My dvd r/rw drive does not work. it sounds like it is reading cds and dvds but nothing happens.

try to boot from some bootable cd/dvd (eg. windows cd) to check if it isn't software problem, if it won't boot, try to clean laser lens using small paintbrush and little alcohol. If it is only software problem, go to control panel > system > device manager and uninstall all cd drives and restart computer

The sound is quit on my dell inspiron laptop

Did you connect any external speakers or headphones? Maybe USB sound card or USB headphones? In case not then do the following.

Go to start->control panel->device manager. Expand Sound Video and Game controllers. Right click on sigmatel/realtek high definition audio and select uninstall. Then restart your notebook. Driver will be reinstalled automatically.

MAke sure to check sound volume levels : Go to start->Control panel->Sound. Playback and adjust levels.

Cannot record sound

Normally every Lap is coming wit internal mic; so

1- Simply check your mic is mute or not

2 - Check your mic volume

3 - Use sound recorder that comings with windows (just record & play)

4 - Use an external MIC (known as working) with sound recorder

5 - Check in control panel->sound and audio device --> default recording device and Voice recoding device as your system’s built-in audio device (some times it’s changing when we installing b-tooth deice)

6 - Check device manager --> under sound audio controller for any issues

7 – Uninstall & install completely your Audio Device driver with default settings.

** If you didn’t solve your prob; my advice is take your lap to a good technician with component level Repair skills.

Thank you & Best Regards

Sound and Microphone

hi check the device manager for whether the sound device is properly installed. if not, use the motherboard cd to install the driver. check the sound amplifier and its connections. for microphone setup, use the sound and music devices in the control panel and select the recording device name correctly.
thank you
