    Thank you for responding!
    Actually, I can't even get past this odd page that seems to be blocking the computer from starting up. I can't get to "My Computer". Any ideas? Thank you.

No sound device

You can download the audio and device drivers from Dell WEB site, the support download page. Make sure you select your model desktop or laptop, better still, type in the Service Tag number, it is printed on the label on the bottom of the laptop and on the back or sides of a desktop. (If the Service Tag label is missing then go into the BIOS setting and on one of the BIOS pages, the Service Tag number will be displayed). This will open the page where the specific drivers for your model computer are located. Also make sure you select the Windows of the drivers for your Windows operating system.

Where is device manager on my dell d430?

You didn't say which Operating System you are using, but if it's Vista or Windows 7 click on Start, then right click on Computer and scroll to the bottom and click on 'Properties'. When the Properties windows opens it should be the top option on the left. If you are using 'XP', right click on 'My Computer', scroll to the bottom and click on 'Properties, then on the 'Hardware' tab. It will be the first 'button' on the new Window.

Slove my problam

Generally, if a dell portable suddenly starts prompting for a HDD password when none has been set, the HDD is failing.
You can call Dell and try an get a HDD master password (800-624-9896 USA) as a D430 will have lifetime phone support.

My D430 laptop may have caught a virus. When I power up Windows can't even open and it jumps right over to a suspicious page that tells me to try a few options to click on but none work. I can't even get...

Yes, download the following and put them onto a USB pen drive:

Lavasoft Adaware
AVG antivirus Fee

Also download the latest definitions for Lavasoft Adaware and AVG as separate files (these will be available somewhere on their websites)

Start the computer and tap F8 as it boots. Select safemode no network when the menu appears during bootup.

If you get into safe mode windows, right click "my computer" and switch off system restore point.

Copy Smitfraudfix onto the desktop and run it.

reboot into normal mode.

If not fixed, go back into safemode:

Install Lavasoft Adaware, run the update file, do a full system scan then deactivate the software completely.

Do the same with AVG. If you struggle to deactivate AVG, uninstall it after the scan.

Boot back into normal mode. If these three haven't got it but you can get into safe mode, install and run Hijack This, and post the results on a hijack this forum.

If you cant get into safe mode, your OS is probably dead.

How do I enable the inbuilt webcam on my DELL D430 laptop?

Hi scottie_dorn,
this isn't a webcam, it's an ambient light sensor, I'm afraid. Just to make sure: assuming that you're running a Windows-system, please open the device manager and have a look at "Audio, Video..." whether there is an entry regarding a webcam. I'm pretty sure, there isn't one... Greetings from Germany,
PS: Please don't forget to rate this solution after you've tested it out! Thanks in advance and have a nice day!
