Re: no sound in my pc
Open up your control panel then click system then go to the device manager. in device manager you can notice a yellow question mark, right click on that device then update the driver with that mother board cd in your cd rom then just follow the instuctions as shown in your screen

Hi Sounds like your beep codes are being caused by a Pre-video memory error, where your onboard video chip uses a portion of your ram.
first, best to unplug the power cord try reseating the DIMM's in the memory slots on the motherboard, and then turn on your computer.
if no go. remove all but one DIMM and try booting. if your computer boots now, then the DIMM that isnt in your computer is most likely faulty. i would also inspect the DIMM sockets with the DIMM's out to see if there is any damage to them. have seen a number of cracked sockets and this can be a problem, with even the slightest bump causing a DIMM to move, and causing this type of error.
If you still get the error, if you reply back in here, can help you further.
The model number you provided is incorrect. It is most likely, D945GCNL. Intel site for your MB; http://downloadcenter.intel.com/SearchResult.aspx?lang=eng If you’re currently using 2 DIMMs of memory remove one DIMM. Open your manual to page 11. First remove DIMM "L". Attempt booting your system. Listen for possible bios beeps. Than shut the system down and remove the memory from " K " and insert your second memory DIMM. Again, boot system and listen for bios beeps. Intel suggest when installing memory on to the D945GCNL motherboard that it be done in a specific manner. See, 1.4 System Memory Page 16, in the TechProdSpec.pdf manual provided below; http://downloadmirror.intel.com/15115/eng/D945GCNL_TechProdSpec.pdf The power supply currently in your system with does not provide enough wattage for your motherboard. To help find how much power you do need open the next link provided; http://www.journeysystems.com/?power_supply_calculator It’s better to have more wattage power than you need. Even though you have an Intel manual for your board it’s suggested you download it from Intel. You'll need Adobe reader to view the manual. With Adobe you can use the zoom in feature. The next pdf link is your manual; http://downloadmirror.intel.com/15115/eng/D945GCNL_ProductGuide02_English.pdf I do not think there is anything wrong with you bios or your system memory. I think your system is under powered. Happy holidays! Mike
the problem is with your memory card as one memory module is not functioning which is in DIMM 1. you need to replace it. because which playing music file as due to damage memory it takes time for buffering. and that is why you hear choppy sound. you can also run a test on memory. Restart the sys. and press F12 on blue Dell Logo. and goto BOOT TO UTILITY PARTITION and run a test on memory it will hardley take 5 mins. and it will give you the result.
You RAM module may be faulty or needs reseating in the DIMM slot B. Reseat the both RAM modules then :-
Check the POST information as it boots up, the amount of install RAM should equal to the installed RAM (the total RAM could be 256Mb or 512Mb or 1Gb depends how much memory you purchased with the laptop) less 64 Mb or 128 Mb RAM which is used for video memory (depends upon your video card requirements).
Once you fix your RAM problems you should be able to reinstall Windows.
Sounds like the hard drive could be bad, or maybe it is trying to boot from the cd drive. The "Check media cable" is the error that bugs me. In your bios, you can usually have the computer boot from a CD Rom drive, or a usb flash drive, etc.. instead of the hard drive where the operating system is. Make that :
1. there is no cd in the cd drive.
2. When the laptop boots, don't touch the keyboard while booting.
Try that and lets see if it will boot into the cd drive.
Try removing the jumper from the harddrive, then restart
Take the jumper off restart shut down and then put it back on again
remove the CMOS battery from system board and boot once after booting shutdown your system and insert the battery back, again start your system and press F1 next time it won't ask you for pressing F1. reset your BIOS after that (time,date,etc.)
