When i cahnge the volume in WMC with my Dell XPS420 remote Control, the v"olume changes" in the Windows Media Center, but the volume keeps the same. I think i need to program the Remote Control or something to change another output channel or something like that?
If the remote control causes a visible change with the volume control display but no audible difference, there are only three possible fixes. 1.)Go to Windows "Start > Control Panel > Sounds > Advanced. Here you will find a set of several volume control slide bars each with a check box at the bottom for muting. Un-check any controls marked as muted and raise the volume to 50%. Exit Control Panel. 2.) Many P.C. speaker systems are self amplified and have their own volume controls which supercede anything you do through Windows. 3.)If the problem persists you most likely have a jack plugged into the wrong feed. Allways power OFF and ground yourself before fiddling with computer jacks.

Ok, i'm not sure what version of windows you are running but on my windows xp machine I right click on my volume icon (little speaker) on the right side of the start bar on bottom of screen. Then click 'open volume control' , This will open up 'play control' window. In this window you now want to click 'options' in the upper left corner and select properties from the drop down menu. This will open up a second window titled 'Properties', near the top of this windows there is a section titled 'Adjust volume for', under this select the 'Recording' option. This will change the list of volume controls to your computers audio inputs. Make sure the input you are trying to use has a check mark next to it then click 'OK' on the bottom right of the 'Properties' window. The 'Properties' windows will close and the Play control window will now have the title 'Record control'. Make sure any inputs you want to use are turned up and there is a check mark next to the 'Selected' check box under the volume bar for each input. This should fix it for you. If you are using a different version of windows let me know what Windows you're using and i'll post a followup for you with the correct instructions. Good luck!
Go into the device manager and select the modem to change the volume.
Click Start/Control Panel/System/Hardware/Device Manager then scroll down to Modems and click the + sign next to Modems to expand and see your modem. Right Click on your modem and select Properties. When the Properties window opens up click the Modem tab and then select to change the Speaker Volume. Just slide the volume meter to the right by using your mouse pointer to increase the volume.
If this does not resolve the issue, then the motherboard or processor is faulty and you need to get it replaced, so if your system is within warranty why pay extra, get it replaced from Dell. Else contact a local tech and he'll help you out.

try loading the computer in Safemode, while booting the computer press F8 and select safemode, and you will have a user named as "administrator" (if you did not delete the user before from safemode). this user may not have any password. login to it and go to start>control panel> users> and select your user and change/ remove password.
If this doesn;t work, please download the software named hiren from this URL http://www.hirensbootcd.net/download.html and run it from the CD or a flash drive. this will load a virtual windows OS and you can change the password from there by going to control panel, users.
it might be a bad mic or it may be your mic settings its worth looking into, try connecting a audio source to it when you are configuring it and have the volume control for the microphone (on the playback section) so that you can hear it when it starts working

Is there a reason why you cant turn off sleep mode and just let the screen saver kick in? You can do this by right clicking on your desktop and goto properties. Then ScreenSaver, then click on power.
Change these values to never and then go back and set your screen saver...
