Question about Dell Inspiron Computers & Internet
I will no longer be associated with Fixya.com as their policies have changed and what was once a good side-job is now an unpaid service. Yet the customers still pay dearly for answers! You may contact me through my website, David Home Computer Repair, if you would need professional, inexpensive tech support.

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.
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)

you should have a key on keyboard in lower left corner by windows key that says"FN" then hit "F2" that should do it, if that is not the case then there should be a switch along the edge of machine

the screen orientation can be adjusted, there should be a button combination similiar to CTRL+ALT+Arrow key of which direction you want to flip it to. or then you have to look on the bottom right corner of the screen for display adapter settings, there should be a orientation setting there if not, then right click on your desktop and select properties, then settings, then advanced. there go over all the pages and look for the orientation setting. That last advise if for windows xp.
