    in device manager it says that I already have legacy audio drivers and that they are updated and working properly. My speaker is plugged in and turns on, but there still is no sound.

    In the control panel/sounds and audio devices - it says no audio device. I double checked and my soud bar is hooked up properly.

Perform a System Restore If Necessary:

  • Step 1 - If the sound has been audible from your computer's speakers and is suddenly lost, you may need to perform a System Restore. Click on the " Start" button and then "All Programs."
  • Step 2 - Click on "Accessories," then "System Tools," then "System Restore."
  • Step 3 - Complete the System Restore Wizard. If this doesn't work, read on.

Delete And Reinstall the Original Sound Drivers:

  • Step 1 - Deleting and reinstalling your sound driver may resolve the problem. Your sound driver may have been corrupted or may be missing. The result of this is that the restore utility menu won't be available. For Windows XP, follow these steps.
  • Step 2 - Click on your "Start" button. Click on "Control Panel" and then "System." Next, click on "Hardware," then "Device Manager, then "Sound, Video and Game Controllers."
  • Step 3 - Click on a sound device named in the Device Manager, and then press the Delete key on the keyboard. Click "OK" in the window that appears. Remove all the listed sound devices i this way EXCEPT Audio Codec and Legacy Audio Drivers.

  • Step 4 - Restart your computer. Reinstall the deleted drivers using the Driver and Application Recovery CDs that came with your Windows XP system.
  • Step 5 - Visit your computer manufacturer's official website. Check for any updated sound driver software for your sound card. If any, download them along with the installation instructions.

Dell Inspiron 6000 Laptop Won't Boot Up


The laptop won’t POST after removing the memory? Sounds like the memory module (s) need to be reseated again. Removing memory will not reset the laptop. If you want to install a clean Windows XP load, you need to boot from the Windows CD and format the hard drive.
Fell free to contact me if you need futher assistance.
