Question about Dell Inspiron 1525 Notebook

1 Answer

Vista wont let my adjust my Volume

I have a Dell inspiron 1525 with vista. I am the only person that uses it so I have only one account. Recently I turned on my computer and the system icons in the notification area were gone, aka, I could not see my power level network or volume icons in the lower right corner. I right clicked on the toolbar, clicked on properties and then went to the notification area tab. The system icons were all dim, light grey or whatever, so I couldn't click on them. So I made a new user account, making it the administrator. I went to that account and turn the icons on. It fixedit. well today, I turned my computer on and the volume icon was gone. I did every thing I could but it wont come back :( Please help me!
thanx, Palmtree

Try restarting the computer, then go back to the Notification Area for your Taskbar, then verify if the volume icon is active for you to select.

otherwise, check this site

Dell inspiron 1525 w/ Vista 32 will not hibernate


Hibernate issues are generally an issue with the Video driver. Try the following: Update to the latest list of drivers from support.dell.com BIOS Video Driver see if the issue is resolved. If not, then try editing the startup group of MSCONFIG and see if an item running at startup is causing the issue. (Start, RUN, MSCONFIG, OK to open MSCONFIG)
