No sound devices on my dell inspiron 5160


Hello...
Full details about sound issue in my website...
www.sureshayyar.110mb.com (Support page)

As an alternative u can do this (i am using this solution till date)

If u cant install the sound driver correctly, just buy a " USB Sound Adaptor" and connect it to the USB port and connect the speaker sound jack to the sound port in this adaptor....u will get back the sound....also keep in mind that u " may " have to disable onboard sound in BIOS, u may also have to make changes in the Control Panel / Sound and Audio Devices / Audio Tab / Sound Playback option... Click the drop down button and select the "USB Audio Devices/Headset"

You can get it in Ebay for $1 to $4 or google it to locate a place near u......

This is the one i am refering to(I bought it in Ebay for 1$)....u can buy something similar also....there are many available mfd from China, just plug and play on your USB port....

If you find this solution useful please leave a feedback and rating to this solution.

Regards....
All the best, my dear friend..

Usb ports don't work, out of the blue


I'm not a great fan of USB ....ever since a USB external hard drive decided to become undetectable halfway through a back up once ....

Since the problem occurred after moving the PC, the first thing that comes to mind is that some wiring has come loose .... but as it's a laptop that seem hardly likely.

Have a look in Device Manager (Control Panel/System/Hardware/Device Manager) ....see if there are any yellow warning marks next to any of the USB devices.

One trick that often works in these cases is to uninstall all the USB Root Hubs in Device Manager (right click each one and select uninstall/remove), then reboot the pC and let Windows reload the devices. Don't ask me why ....but this works 90% of the time.

Dell Inspiron 5160 Black screen on power up


There is a small board that the power button is integrated into that connects to the motherboard. When this power board malfunctions it will cause this issue with the machine. It can, and quite often does, damage the motherboard when it malfinctions. You should take the machine in for a power board replacement and a diagnostic to make sure that the power board hasn't damaged the motherboard.
