U need to double confirm the phone line whether got dial tone or not. What u can do is to plug the phone line to a single line phone. If dial tone is available, u can able to make call.

Dell Inspiron 530 not recognizing HL-DT-ST-DVD+-RW GSA-H73N ATA. Downloaded latest driver. No luck. Code 10 error.


I'd try rolling back to the previous driver, maybe your machine isn't compatible with the latest driver ...

I have a Dell Inspiron 530 0X0000007E error code


That error message is usually coupled with removing an adapter connected to a RAID device. Have you disconnected anything in your computer recently? Have you opened it and cleaned it recently? If you've opened it to clean it, there's a chance that something may have come loose. If you know what you're doing on the inside of a computer, you can go through and make sure that everything is properly connected and then try booting again too see if that works.

Was able to get connected to the internet twice to day when i came back in to get on the computer it couldnt connect to the internet said no dial tone. this is a new dell computer with an external modem...


Generally this is an indication of a modem failure. If there have been any storms in your area, then the modem may have been zapped. The dial tone curcuit is normally the first casualty when a modem gets hit with more power than normal.

Provided that your telephone is functional on that line (Unplug modem, and connect a handset if this is a modem only line and see if the handset gets a dial tone, this is a good check to make sure the line is functional)

Dell inspiron 6400/E1505 audio drivers not working.


I can see how vista would screw up drivers through automatic updates. You could not be the 1st.
There are driver cleaners out there.

Make sure you know what chipset you have, probably AC97 and use the driver cleaner to remove it.
Reboot and install the driver from dells web site.

G'luck

Cannot connect to the internet


open internet explorer, go to tools, internet options, then the connections tab and make sure ' never dial a connection' is ticked, assuming you had a dial up connection before using the router on this pc or if you briefly used it.
