SOURCE: My Dell Latitude 620 laptop lost all sound - all

You might have to back up your data and reinstall windows.Based on what you've done it would seem that windows is corupted and preventing the driver software from loading.
good luck

#1 Flash the BIOS to the most current version. #2 Run diagnostics from the F12 menu (Or Power plus FN key) see if the speakers work in the diagnostic. If they work in diags, there is no hardware issue, only a software issue. If you get no sound in diags, try a pair of headphones, if you still get no sound, then it is a hardware problem. If you only get sound in the headphones, then the microswitch that disables the speakers is stuck. #3 is sound works in diags then you have a problem with the audio driver or speaker configuration (Audio muted etc)

Most likely you have another chat program using the camera. Right click on the icons in the systray next to the clock and exit programs. After exiting each program, try the camera again. The last program you exit before the camera is the one causing the problem. Restart the computer and right click on that program and try and set it to not start when the Windows starts.

You can always buy a good Laptop webcam, to use instead. That is much easier than replacing the webcam in the laptop lid.

Samsung PL50 with Samsung 2GB memory card says 'memory full' even though I've cleared down the memory via my laptop.


Have you actually formatted the card in the camera ? Just copying the photos does not remove them from the card

Importing pictures


Try NOT connecting your camera to your computer.


The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.


Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program.

Take no more pics until you've recovered your photos, take the card out of the camera. This is to reduce the chance of you overwriting some of your "lost" photos. There are many good freeware photo recovery software options that may help you recover your photos. This article reviews and outlines several of the better ones. Note that you may need to use the corrupted card procedures listed in the article.
Once you've recovered your photos, you'll need to format the card in your camera, using the camera's format feature (look for it in the camera's menus). This will rejuvenate the card, but will also erase it, so only do such after recovering, or as per the corrupted card procedures of the above link. And in the future, do not use your memory card for long term storage, as they are prone to corrupt as you've discovered. Instead regularly save and backup your photos using your computer.

Hi, I strongly doubt you would be able to fix it yourself. My suggestion would be to contact Gus Lazzari he seems to have access to a lot of camera and lens parts no matter how old they are.

I have Sigma DP1. There is one problem - when I shoot in sunny weather, I have light pink color instead of white color. How its possible to change white balance?


This camera gets low marks for "White Balance" ease of use. Results are "inconsistent".

A much more reliable way is to change saving images in camera from JPEG to RAW format. Using the included Sigma Photo Pro (SPP) RAW converter that is provided on a CD-ROM (the software can also be downloaded from the Sigma Website) with the camera, makes adjusting the white balance much easier. The downside is that is an additional step that must be done on a computer instead of getting pictures straight out of the camera. The upside is the huge amount of control you get by shooting RAW in the editing mode on the computer. You can read more about JPEG vs RAW here. Outside of shooting RAW, there's little to be done about poor white balance IN the camera.

I hope this was helpful. Please rate my reply. Thank you.

Internal microphone not working


I have Dell Inspiron 1520 and I have issue to built in microphone is not working. I tried to execute the Sigma Tel driver from Dell Driver and Support website but prompted 'Exit Error; Error : Device Object not present, Restart system and run setup. Then, asked Dell support to help and they are not really helpful, after System Restore and drivers upload and finally asked to reformat the laptop........

Anyway, this is what works for me.

1) Download the Sigma Tel driver from Dell Support Drivers page and save it in Desktop
2) Shutdown your computer
3) Start your computer and press F8 at the Dell Logo page
4) Select Safe Mode (not others)
5) Proceed to work on Safe Mode
6) Right-click the Sound icon and activate the Sound icon
7) Select Recording device.
8) If still not working, then execute the Sigma Tel driver that saved in desktop

then, shutdown the computer and start as normal, you may see the system able to detect the built in Microphone then.

Hope it will work the same for you too..!!
