Drivers are available at http://support.dell.com/. Sorry to say a Windows Repair or even chkdsk could have resolved the issue without losing data.

Barbara, is your windows uptodate? If not, update it. Then check drivers if uptodate. If not, download DriverMAX free and scan. I had a realtek message relating to driver.

You are missing the OS.
If you have the restore CD's, use them to restore your Dell to original state, or you can order a set from Dell.
If you do not have a restore CD's you can also boot with a Windows CD and install the OS but you will have to go to the Dell website and download the drivers for your model.
I hope this helped.
Good luck and have a pleasent day.

Dell speaker driver missing for dimension 6400 speakers won't work


Do you mean Inspiron 6400 laptop? You need to go to www.support.dell.com and select "I'm looking for drivers and downloads". If you don't have the proper version of Adobe you will be prompted to install it. Once installed return to "drivers and downloads" and enter the "service tag", (serial number) of the 6400 laptop. Dell keeps a listing of drivers for every customer's computer they sell.

Thank You.
