Dell Inspiron 600m Speakers

My mother-in-law gave me her old laptop and it worked great until my brother borrowed it for a power point presentation. Since I got it back the speakers crackle like they have been blown but when I plug headphones in i hear the same crackle in them. This makes me think it's something other than the actual speakers, has anyone else had this problem?

Re: Dell Inspiron 600m Speakers

Hi, I have just had a similar problem on my Acer5600 notebook regadless of if the speakers of headphones were being used. A continuous buzz, hum and crackle which varied depending upon if I ran the notebook in high performance or low performance. The high performance setting gave the worse results. I had installed Adobe CS3 suite (Trial version) 2 days ago so have just uninstalled it. Hey Presto, half way through the uninstall process i heard a click and the noise has gone !!. I can only assume its a driver conflict of some sort.
Hope this helps anyone else with a similar problem :-)

Try making sure all the volume mixer settings are less than 90% of maximum as this can sometimes cause this problem

Microphone on Dell Inspiron 600M PC Notebook not working

If your Inspiron 600m had a mic that you used in the past and it is no longer working, please try to press the mute/volume down/up buttons near where the whole of the mic is located.  
If, after trying the above, 1 or all 3 buttons do not work, the problem is with the board that is right under the power button (small 2-3 inch length circuit board). It is not making full contact on its connector below. If you put pressure on it (just above the power button) it will all respond. I had the same problem on another 600m laptop.

Laptop won't dock

The inspiron 600M will not function in a D-Dock, but will work in a D-Series port Replicator. (Although the D600 and 600M share the same motherboard, the bottom plastics are different)

After trying the 600M in the D-Dock, it is possible the dock is damaged. I would undock the D630, then delete the docked profile. power off, dock, and reboot and see if it detects and works.
