Question about Dell Inspiron 6400 Notebook

1 Answer

I have a Dell Inspiron 6400 with SigmaTel High Definition Audio. The driver is SigmaTel 5.10.0.5515 dated 5/10/2007. I have skipping and scratchy noise for about a month. New speakers do not make a difference. Is there anything I can do?

You can try doing a fresh install of windows to see if there is any driver conflicts.

Before you do that though i would download and burn a ubuntu cd to try some tests with linux.

when you put in the linux cd it will give you the option to "try linux without any changes to my computer". select that option.

Linux distributions often come with generic drivers that work with most hardware types.

see if you have the same issue with ubuntu. If you do then you may have deeper issues. If you do not then a simple reinstall of windows should suffice.

hope this helps.

I tried your solutions to restore audio on my Dell Inspiron 6400 by running Microsoft updates and installing audio drivers from Dell but problem persists. Computer states ''IDT High Definition Audio Codec...


The solution at: http://www.fixya.com/ThreadView.aspx?prdid=484539 should have worked, namely the part to access http://support.dell.com and select the "audio" drivers for your version of Windows (XP? Vista? 7?) and download/install them.

Computer sound not working


ah, try the FN key and holding i down then quickly pressing the end key without releasing fn, then release them.
i have an inspiron laptop computer too just an older version so this might not work, if it doesnt go to control panel, sounds,audio and etc. then go to "Adjust System volume" or one of the other ones under "Sound" which are already up when you click onto that
