Unable to get music services like Rhapsody to work on my Inspiron 710M

I had Rhapsody and how have Yahoo! Music Unlimited and they work fine on my desktops but I cannot get them to work on my Inspiron 710M. I can get the 30 second sample music but not the entire song because of some DRM problem. I received instructions from both music services on fixing my DRM but when I try them I get a warning from Microsoft that the website to upgrade my DRM is unable to do so. I have tried renaming the DRM and then doing the upgrade. No luck. I have used a DOS program for fixing the DRM but when it sends me to the Microsoft website for fixing the DRM it tells me that it is unable to do so. I am out of ideas. Yahoo! Music and Rhapsody gave up also. I even tried copying my DRM files from my desktop where the services seem to work but when I tried to use the service it came back with a warning that it could not stream music other than the short sample music because of my corrupted DRM. Any ideas how I can get this to work on this laptop? Thank you for your help.

Some music from Rhapsody are DRM protectec which limit you to use. You may find a converter to help you remove protect and convert, so you can use as you want.
I have tried Daniusoft Digital Music Converter which could remove DRM and convert DRM in a good quality.

How to bypass a dell inspiron 710m password i for got my password and set a master pass word but wont sign me in

Each Dell has a master password which will clear the BIOS password. You can get this number by calling Dell Technical Support at (800)624-9896.

Dell Technical Support will request the Service Tag and Express Service Code from the bottom of your unit.

Let me know if this helps!

Dell Inspiron 710m PC Notebook Problem

Go to "Device Manager" and look if any yellow or red alerts are being displayed next to any devices. To access the "Device Manager" go to the 'Control Panel", "Administrative Tools", "Computer Management" and select "Device Manager" located in the left side column.
If there is an alert, double click on that device to determine the problem, i.e.… device not configured, cannot start this device, etc…
It sounds like all your software drivers got blown away or can’t load. If that’s the case, try running diagnostics. Press and hold the <Fn> key while powering the system on. This will initiate a diagnostic routine to check your hardware.

No sound on my dell laptop

I'm thinking when was the last time you reformatted? I know it's a hassel but it comes the time when you have no choice. Do you have your audio coming from the screen? It so then I would try speakers. They're cheap enough these days. If this works then I would be hopeful that your screen is still under warranty.If not then you may need to pull your laptop apart and replace the sound card.
