Hi. After uninstalling a few programs, a few settings in my inspiron 6400 got screwed up. Im now trying to fix them one by one. One of these is the Volume control that appears on the lower right corner when you adjust the volume. It wont come up anymore. Can anyone tell me how to get it back up, or how to revert to the original computer settings (which would be even better) Thanks in advance!

Re: Volume control icon dissappeared
Open Control Panel, Open Sound & Audio Devices. Click the Audio tab. Check what device is listed, Sound playback device? Click the Voice tab, it should list the same device. You can reinstall the driver software from the Dell download site listed below. Fact all your drivers here are listed. http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/driverslist.aspx?c=us&cs=19&l=en&s=dhs&ServiceTag=&SystemID=INSPIRONI6400/E1505&os=WW1&osl=en&catid=&impid=
Every file you install uncompress it's self & creats it's own folder inside the main folder located on your drive named Dell. Keep this in mind because windows may loose the path to a driver. You will have to show windows where the driver files are. Now your armed with that knowlage (just in case).

Hi good day "Topsychicc" you can easily fix this problem by yourself, find your Dell inspiron 6400 laptop driver from their website,find your "service tag" from bottom of your laptop then search driver from their website mentioned below http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/ then download and install your audio driver...
it,s saying the audio Device used by this Application ( Program )
Is not detected.
The problem most likely is with the program i.e media-Player, Cyberlink Power DVD Et,c.
uninstall and re-install your Audio/Music Application.
Also check the devices/Drivers are not corrupt or not installed.
Double click on the volume icon on the system bar (lower righ corner, asuming you are using windows), this will display the volume controls. Now, click on Otions -> Properties and select "Record", MAYBE you will need to change the Mixing Device in order to do this, click on accept or ok and the volume panel now contains the recording volume controls, check the silence mark ys not checked for the mic, adjust your volume settings if needed. Good Luck!.
To get the original volume config, just do the same selecting the play option.
FIRST try the simple solutions. Check if your speaker wires are plugged into the proper ports. If you are unsure, it won't hurt to try different configurations. (If you hear sound from other devices such as playing a CD or the "Microsoft Sound" when starting up or shutting down, then the speakers are wired correctly.) If this is OK then try...
Go to your "Device Manager" (Right click on ‘My Computer', select 'Properties', click the 'Hardware' tab, click the 'Device Manager' button. Click the "Sound video and game controllers"). If there is some kind of a yellow "Warning" icon superimposed on the 'speaker' icon there is your problem! Missing or corrupt drivers. If no "Warning" icons then try... Click on the blue icon on the second row, (it looks like a large key in front of a monitor) that says "Scan for hardware changes" when you hover your mouse on it. One at a time... Double click on each of the devices that have 'Audio' in the listings. Click the "Properties" tab; look for any "Warning" icons. Uninstall the DRIVERS for THAT DEVICE only. See instructions below. Click on the faulty device and hit the "remove" button, follow the instructions given by the program. (This uninstalls the DRIVERS) Shutdown, restart, the device will automatically reinstall by the "Found New Hardware" program.
In this situation, I recommend you to uninstall the HP Quicktouch application from the Programs and Features which is found in the Control Panel in Vista by following the instructions below:
Go to Control Panel and double click the Programs and Features icon.
In the window that appears, locate the application with the name HP Quicktouch or Quicktouch and click on the Uninstall button.
This will uninstall the Quicktouch application from the Notebook because of which we get the indicator when we increase/decrease or mute audio in the Notebook.
Now, restart the Notebook and download the latest version of HP Quicktouch application from the link provided below and install in your Notebook :
NOTE : Clicking on the link may give an error message. Copy entire link and paste it in the address bar of a new web browser and press Enter.
Please save the file in the Notebook and double click it after the download completes to install the drivers.
The display that appears while adjusting the volume using the Quick Launch buttons should dissappear correctly after installing this application.
However, if the issue with the Volume Display persists, I recommend you to uninstall it and not to reinstall it again.
Hope this helps...
