If you want the latest drivers go to the dell website. Use the support for my system area & download the latest sound driver for your system. Once downloaded open and it will start the install process. It will talk you through the install with onscreen directions. Hope this helps & please rate this solution fixya. Thanks.

How can I install drivers for dell inspiron 6400?


Hi.

Click on the link at the bottom of the page to open Dell download page. Using the form on the Dell page, choose the OS (XP or Vista), the download links will be listed on the lower part of the Dell page.

Download one by one the drivers listed on the last part of the Dell page (audio, video etc.) by clicking the link for each driver.

Save the drivers into a folder, renaming them as audio, video etc. When you have finished downloading all drivers install them one by one onto the Inspiron 6400 by executing the files that you just finished downloading.

You may need to restart the computer after installing each driver.Ensure that the driver installation is complete before restarting.

Ensure that you are using an account with administrator privileges while installing the drivers. If using Vista you may need to click the right button of the mousepad on the installer file, and choose 'Run as Administrator' from the drop down menu.

Here the download page: Drivers & Downloads

Note: drivers for Windows 7 and Windows 64 OS are not available.

Regards.

No sound


Here are the links for the sound driver Dell Inspiron 6400. You have to select the correct audio driver and operating system to run on your computer. If you are not sure download all the audio or sound driver and then install after download. No sound means you did not installed the sound driver or if installed but not working properly. Installing these software will update your sound then it will work after update or installing the sound driver. Have a nice day.

I have reinstalled Windows xp on my Laptop 6400 inspiron and now I have no audio. I have check Control Panel and it says no audio device is installed. I have tried to download Sigmatel from the Dell...


i believe the audio device for this model is located on the modem bus.
if you install the modem driver first then the machine should display the "found new hardware" wizard. DONT USE THIS.
ignore the wizard and proceed with the sound driver install then reboot the machine.
that should work providing you have installed the drivers in the correct order

The solution at: http://www.fixya.com/ThreadView.aspx?prdid=484539 should have worked, namely the part to access http://support.dell.com and select the "audio" drivers for your version of Windows (XP? Vista? 7?) and download/install them.

No sound in my Dell Inspiron 6400 laptop


If the issue is no sound after reinstallation of Windows, then your issue is most likely a driver issue. Many items in the system will function with native windows drivers but the audio on a I6400 is not one of them. Installation of drivers in the correct order is critical to Dell portables functioning correctly. Correct driver order is:

Notebook System Software.
Chipset Utility
Video Driver
Audio Driver
Modem Driver
Network Driver
Wireless Driver
Touchpad Driver
Quickset Utility

All other applications and drivers (MS Office, Printer driver etc)

This system is also equipped with Media Direct capability. For Media Direct to function, the system's HDD must be prepared using the Media Direct installation CD, then WIndows installed, then the Media Direct application. If you have no plans to use media direct, this can be skipped (Most people do)
