Dell Inspiron 1501 Audio Device

I deleted all partitions in my hard disk, including the unmounted drive that contains the backup/recovery files, re-created new two partitions in it and reformatted it for a fresh wXP. It seems perfectly well, except that the audio device does not appear in the device list anymore, like no sound card is connected. The cds are not with me, and I am using the laptop without audio. Please help me find a solution to this. Thanks.

I don't have recovery partition


follow this step and do it. God bless you

  • To create a partition from a new or newly formatted computer, make sure Windows is installed. Load any programs and drivers you would like to keep in case you need to back up to a previous version of your computer's settings.

  • 2

    Install your partition creation software; in this article we will use Norton Ghost. Before creating your partition, disable any anti virus and other scanning software.


  • 3

    Create your partition by going to your ms-dos prompt: from your Start menu, press "Run," and type "cmd" without quotations in the run dialog box. At the dos prompt, type "fdisk" without quotations, and choose option 1 (Create DOS partition or Logical DOS Drive). Set the partition size to 10 GB at press enter.

  • 4

    Open Norton Ghost and follow the instructions to create a recovery partition in the new partition you had just created. The process should take anywhere from one to three hours, depending on the size of the files you are going to back up.

  • 5

    Restart your computer. When done, open Norton Ghost to verify that the Recovery Partition was created.

    How to Restore Files From a Windows Image


    Windows 10 OS provides ample opportunities for data backup which include tracking file history and functionality that allows creating an image of the entire system. The concept of the system developers is that the functions of File History are required for convenient and rapid everyday recovery of user data, while a system image is created not so often and allows complete recovery of a partition (including system files) to a certain operable OS.
    It is recommended to create a backup system image copy before modifying the hardware configuration of a computer, when updating the system, installing new drivers and so on. If something goes wrong, a backup system image copy will allow you restoring the system to the operable condition of Windows. However, when restoring from such image all the information on the system disk is erased by the image files. What should we do if we need only some files to be restored from the system image?
    Fortunately, this task is rather easy. The matter is that the standard system of creating a backup system image copy in Windows 10 is based on the concept of virtual disks (Virtual Hard Drive). That is, images are recorded and stored as virtual drive files in the format vhdx (Virtual Hard Drive). Such virtual drives can be easily mounted with standard features of Windows 10 and be operated as ordinary drives within the system. Attaching such disk to the system, a user can restore from the backup system image separate files and directories.

    Connecting a VHD disk containing a backup system image copy

    System image is usually backed up to a separate physical disk or a network folder. That is why the first thing to do is to connect to the computer a media containing a backup copy of Windows 10 image (or connect a network folder).
    Open the computer management console Computer Management and go to disk manager Storage->Disk Management (this console can be launched from the menu WinX by pressing the key combination Win+X and selecting the item Disk Management). In order to mount a vhd virtual disk select the item Attach VHD in the Action menu.

    http://www.fixya.comwrite_tip-wyytcj10vubwvpdmj0eoj2yx-1-14.png

    In the window that appears click Browse and specify the path to vhdx file. This file is usually stored on a drive that contains a backup system image copy in the directory with a name in the following format [Backup_Drive]:\WindowsImageBackup\[PC_Name]\Backup xxxx-xx-xx xxxxxx. In our example, complete path to the vhdx file is as follows: \\[PC_Name]\VHD\08_01_2016.vhd.

    http://www.fixya.comwrite_tip-wyytcj10vubwvpdmj0eoj2yx-1-5_0.png

    After the virtual drive has been mounted it has to be assigned a drive letter. To do it, click the right mouse button on the drive and select the menu item "Change Drive Letters and Path".

    http://www.fixya.comwrite_tip-wyytcj10vubwvpdmj0eoj2yx-1-9_0.png

    In the window that opens click Add and assign any letter to the drive, for example, E:

    http://www.fixya.comwrite_tip-wyytcj10vubwvpdmj0eoj2yx-1-0_0.png

    After this operation, a new drive will appear in the system, to which letter E:\ is assigned. Open in with Windows Explorer or any file manager and find the files that need to be restored.

    http://www.fixya.comwrite_tip-wyytcj10vubwvpdmj0eoj2yx-1-2_0.png

    Advice. User documents (photos, videos, music and other documents are usually saved to user's profile in the directory E:\Users\{user_name}.
    After you have found and copied the necessary files, the external disk can be disconnected and as a result, the virtual vhd disk will also disappear from the system. Separate files from the system image can be recovered in the same way in Windows 7 and 8 as well.
    If suddenly happened the lost of VHD image of Windows (for example, accidentally or intentionally deleted) it can be recovered by Hetman Partition Recovery. After recovering it with data recovery software you can restore individual files by stated above algorithm.

    How To Recover My Data.?


    Dear Rabeesh,

    I'm guessing that you've formatted hard drive partitions containing Windows 7. If so, the drive will eventually become RAW as it contains the system files and the OS.
    You need to run the professional partition recovery software (http://goo.gl/5eEjN), capable to recover RAW partitions from your hard drive. Follow the link mentioned above and try the software. It comes in demo version, so you can try it for free and once assured, you can go for premium version to recover all your data.

    NEED TO KNOW HOW I CAN PREVENT BACKUP FILES FROM GOING INTO MY RECOVERY(D), AND FILLING IT UP. I AM RECEIVING MESSAGE THAT I HAVE LOW DISK SPACE IN RECOVERY DISK. HOW DO I FREE UP THIS SPACE, AND HOW


    Are you sure the files are going in there? Many times the manufacturers only allocate the size that they need partitioned on that drive. I have seen many cases where that drive is full from factory and people always get that message.

    1. Click Start c01508537.gif and right-click Computer .
    2. Select Properties .
    3. Click System Protection from the left side of the Window.
    4. In the section "Automatic restore points", remove the selection next to the D: drive, and then click OK . If the D: drive was not selected, close this window. Figure 3: System Protection tab with D: drive unselected
      c01556005.jpg
    5. Right-click Start Explore All Users .
    6. Before you can remove the backup files and folders, you need to be able to view hidden system files as follows:
      1. From the explorer window press the Alt key on the keyboard to make the menu bar appear in the window.
      2. From the file menu, click Tools , and then select Folder Options .
      3. Select the View tab.
      4. Select Show hidden files and folders , remove the selection from Hide protected operating system files and then click OK .
    7. From the Folder Options window in explorer, double-click Recovery (D:) .
    8. If a Window opens stating "You don't currently have permission to access this folder" opens. Click Continue .
    9. If you previously copied or created any files into Recovery (D:) and you want to keep them, copy them to another drive - such as the C: drive.
    10. Find and delete any files that you previously copied onto the Recovery (D:) drive.
      CAUTION:Do not delete any files that are associated to recovery! Do not delete the items RECOVERY, $RECYCLE.BIN, boot, hp, PC-Doctor, pcdr, or PRELOAD! Doing so can prevent a future system recovery from the hard drive. If you are not sure, do not delete the file.
      Press Shift + Delete to permanently remove the files.
      To delete files created from MS Backup (MS Backup files are not recovery files), find and delete the folder with the same name as the computer name in the Recovery (D:) partition. For example if the computer name is BOB-PC, the folder containing the backup files would be named BOB-PC and would be deleted.
    11. Several confirmation windows open. Click Continue , and Yes until the folder is deleted.
    12. To set Windows Folder Options back to their original setting as follows:
      1. From the explorer window press Alt to view the file menu.
      2. Click Tools , and then select Folder Options .
      3. Select do not show hidden files and folders and select Hide protected operating system files .
      4. Click OK .
    13. Close explorer. The Out of Disk Space errors should no longer appear. If you would like to use the Microsoft Backup Tool again, open it and select a different external backup device to store the backup files on.

    I had new dell inspiron 1501 laptop with windows 7 os instaled in 350gb singel drive and i want to saparet two or more parteshens with out OS loss


    if your hard disk is only 1 partition right now, reformatting the hard disk, then deleting the current partition and creating additional partitions is the way to do it. This means, you also have to reinstall Windows. if you do not want to reinstall Windows, look for programs like partition magic or the like that can allow you to create additional partitions, though, there are cases this may have issues later.
