Question about Dell Inspiron 1000 Notebook

Removed a program, now No Audio on my computer.

I recently removed some programs on my computer because I got a message saying that I had low disk space, told me to delete unwanted programs. So i went to Add/remove programs and removed about 4 programs I thought were meaningless and then all of a sudden couldn't get Audio. My Itunes tells me there is a problem when I open it, I go to the tools and It won't let me move any of the Audio controls. What should I do so I can get my Audio back???

Why my Toshiba Satekkite laptop won't reformat the hard drive?

Why are you trying to reformat the drive ? The entire operating system and all files will be destroyed if you do this. To reformat the drive requires an external program on a disk that would allow you to reinstall windows from scratch. Most Bios chips can do a reformat but accessing these low level programs is for pros only and varies widely from machine to machine. Unless you have a nasty Trojan, virus or worm that can't be removed any other way I would not do this. You will need a working copy of a boot disk to get the machine up and running after the reformat. Then you can reinstall the Operating System. If you had been successful in your reformat you would have found yourself with a DEAD MACHINE unless you had a boot disk ready.

You know the "Add/Remove Programs"

You have removed you sound card driver, so you have to download it in the computer manufacturer.

Whenever I switch on my laptop, I have a message on the screen saying: ''Operating system not found'' and I can't do anything else... The laptop is not responding anymore.

This error message could be caused by the laptop not detecting the hard drive.
Check the BIOS to see if it detects the hard disk
If not the hard disk may be faulty or needs reseating. If the hard disk is faulty it needs to be replaced and Windows installed on the new hard disk.
A virus program may have infected the computer and removed or changed some system files - in this case Windows needs to be repaired OR Windows re-installed - this is the best option.

Over a couple of months my Toshiba Satellite Pro Laptop keeps telling me I have very low disk space. Ive removed all my pics, music and alot more! it is pratically empty now! I regulary have to run Disk...

'Low Disk Space' Could be talking about your virtual memory. Sounds as if your RAM is experiencing problems and your Virtual Memory cache is not high enough.

Computer says not enough space in drive c have removed lots of programs but still says the same

Did you remove them or delete them? You will need to go to the control panel, select "uninstall programs" and click uninstall on the programs you want to remove.
you can also 'right click' on your C: drive and select 'disk clean up'.
This will scan your computer and help you get rid of a bunch of junk.
Also, empy your recycle bin.

When i open disk defrag i get an error message saying the program does not exsist

You need to do a repair install to get it back, it may have been accidentally removed by someone. This is very easy as long as you have a Disk with your operating system on it.
