Question about Dell Inspiron 6400 Notebook
About a year after I bought my Inspiron 6400, which is pre-loaded with Windows XP, I could hear sound only when I plugged in my headset. Then I noticed that the microphone would not work: perhaps this problem in fact arose at the same time as the first. Finally, the sound ceased altogether to work. Randomly, every few months, the sound might come on again for a few hours, but generally there is no sound (not even system sounds).
I have tried several times to download and run the Sigmatel STAC 92XX C-Major HD audio driver from the Dell support site, with or without first uninstalling the device. I have checked the device (via "sounds and audio devices") through the control panel, which shows that "This device is working properly." Using the troubleshooter has not resolved the problem.
The speakers hav problems or the sound chipset on the mainboard must be replaced.
you can use an USB external sound card too.
