Question about Dell Inspiron B130 Notebook

Audio and DVD playback problems

When i start up my Inspiron B130 and enter my password the audio sounds very choppy. I can open up Windows Media and the Audio playback for the most part sounds perfect. But as soon as I open up another program the Audio goes all to hell again. Very distorted and choppy. I have tried to find upgrades for my audio driver but to no avail.

Also, I used to be able to watch DVD's on my B130. I wasn't able to use it for a few months and when i got it fixed I tried to watch a DVD. I got a pop up saying I don't have a DVD decoder. But when i go through all my drivers a DVD Decoder shows up and says there is no problems with it.
I am getting quite frustrated with all of this as I have been trying to fix it now for a few months with no signs of getting anywhere.

Hey, seems the choppy sound is due to the revision of some systems firmware with the TSST drives, on my system I downloaded what is touted as a Server update for the TSST TSL462C the file was R147358.exe, if flashed the CDRW/DVD combo drive and viola, it seems that 99% of the audio skipping is gone, don't know about other drives, but the Sigmatel driver on my system is version 5.10.0.4995 if I remember I got this driver off the LG site for Notebooks.

Hope it helps.

Hi, sorry for the difficulty in using the system. I will advise you reload the operating system again. Make sure it's from the real manufacturer, I mean don't go for pirated. If it doesn't work, then back up your files and folders and format the system. I wish you the best.

Anyone know how to enable a microphone on Dell


I would try going to Start, Accessories, Entertainment, and opening the Sound Recorder. Try doing a test record and see if it moves, or plays back what you record. If not, click on Edit at the top of the sound recorder, and go down to audio properties. You should see a sound recording section in the middle. Click volume, make sure microphone is selected, and the volume is up. If this doesn't fix it, try reloading your audio driver for your model of computer. You can download dell drivers from support.dell.com

Choppy audio windows vista


If audio is choppy it indicates the processor is "busy" and it is buffering due to some other process using up resources and keeping the machine busy so it cannot stream the audio properly. Possibly check the running processes and see which ones have high cpu usage and turn them off, then try it. It may also be a media player issue - have you tried updating the media player or reinstalling it - sometimes installing a service pack will cause a problem with the actual media player - reinstalling them usually fixes that problem.

DVD CD audio is garbled and sounds "skippy" o garbled


DvD playback can be a result of dirty lens on your dvd player and bad driver updates from your dvd program vendor. if this is the problem try to check back when you think it started and see if you had any driver updates or software update. use a good dvd cleaner and then check the results.
You can look in the event veiw. Go to my computer right click and than click manage you will see the event viewer and it will show you any conflicks that have happen. if it is a driver conflick remove the driver and it should fix your problem.
