You are in luck, Dell keeps track it it for you. All you need is your Service Code, it,s on your computer case somewhere, usually labeled Svc Code. It's always 7 digits, letters and numbers. If you just find a 7 digit code, try that as your service code.

Visit www.dell.com. Move your mouse over to the Support and Help option (it has a big blue circle with a question mark over it). A menu will appear, click on Drivers and Downloads. Indentify your product by entering your Service Code. You will be brought to a page will all of the necessary Dell drivers available for your particular computer.

You'll see drivers for audio, bios, chipset, network and so on. There will be more than one selection for most things, like audio may give you 5 choices. Read carefully, usually you'll see one or 2 labeled "Recommended". Try them first.

It may take a while. Best wishes.

My motherboard is mercury with an inbuilt soundcard. the soundcard is not working


Do you know for sure your speakers are working? Or is Windows saying there's no sound device? Does the Device Manager tree show any problems (! symbol) by sound hardware entries? Has the integrated sound been disabled in the BIOS settings?

Try downloading the sound drivers from the motherboard manufacturer's website and reinstall. This often solves the problem.

If the integrated sound has failed, install a PCI sound card if there is an open slot on the board. Or you can also purchase a USB external sound card and plug it into an open USB port, and you don't even need to open the computer. Just be sure to disable the integrated sound in the motherboard BIOS setup.

Thanks for using Fixya! Hope your computer is talking again soon.

No connectivity


usually windows doesnt detect external modems except when they are connected through usb port which is plug and play. i guess after connecting the modem with lan port of pc try configuring the settings in windows and modem for internet connection to work. if the led of lan on modem is stable it means the modem is connected to pc well.

Hi there , My Acer Veriton has no sound card and no facility for one as far as I can see. Is it possible to use a USB external type. And if so how would that work? Rudy, from Australia


USB sound cards work quite well, will your PC support USB2? I have never seen a pc without a sound card? No PCI slots?

USB sound cards have their own internal workings not needed by the PC so it should work just fine. Now if they could just make a USB video driver card :)

This is a common problem with all DJ's I know. Sometimes this is due to the fact INADVERTLY one connects powered equipments to the jack. The card is OK, but the jack gets fried. One nice solution is using USB sound cards (the ones that resembles Pen-Drives) and be in business again.

My Mdoem's ethernet and usb lights are off


assuming you using ethernet to connect the pc to the modem: how about checking your ethernetLAN card on the pc if it's integrated with the motherboard you can enable it from the bios settings if it's an expansion card it sounds like you need the most up to date driver which can be downloaded from the card manufacturer's website if you have access to internet on another pc. assuming your pc is connected to the modem via usb: reinstall the driver for the modem . another thing you can do is buy a usb to ethernet adapter which are available for under $5 on the market one end connects to the usb port on your pc and the other end is ethernet and this should work .

Uploading images to laptop


By default, Windows uses a 32bit FAT when formatting which is NOT compatible with most cameras. I'd suggest sticking to using the camera menus for formatting a card, unless the camera can't format one (then, if you must use a PC for formatting, make SURE you select FAT as the File System Type). I'd also recommending formatting again with the camera menus before using a card if you ever do need to format one with a PC. As for your problem with the laptop seeing the card, it could be any number of things. It's more likely related to the USB drivers. Many users report intermittent problems with USB connectivity after upgrading to SP2. A frequent solution that sometimes works is removing all devices drivers related to USB (My Computer, Properties, Hardware, Device Manager). Then, rebooting and letting Windows find and reinstall the drivers again. Sometimes, updating these drivers can work, too. You may also be seeing a conflict between other USB devices and drivers. For example, sometimes HP Printer Monitor software conflicts with USB connectivity to other devices. You may also want to try a different USB Port. If all else fails, consider a Card Reader (they're very inexpensive now -- you can probably pick up a USB 2.0 card reader for around $20.00 locally). With a laptop, you may also want to consider a PCMCIA based reader.
