If the Computer shuts down automatically, then the issue might usually be due to the overheating issues.
The overheating issues develop, if the Cooling Fan in the Computer is malfunctioning.
The Processors are designed to shut down automatically, if there are any overheating issues.
For such issues, it would be better to get the Unit examined at the Service Center.
Replacing the Cooling Fan should resolve the issue.

Hope this helps.

I cant hear any sounds


I can. Tell your neighbors to hold it down.

OH, I'M JUST KIDDIN'!



(Must be my neighbors........."Hey.........you guys hold it down out there!" )

Suggest you download AND install the audio (Sound) drivers.

Driver: Small piece of software that allows the Operating System to communicate with a device

Device is the audio chipset.
Version of Windows operating system wasn't stated.

Dell Support > Latitude D530 Notebook PC > Main Support page,

http://www.dell.com/support/troubleshooting/us/en/19/Product/latitude-d530

Click on the blue - Drivers & Downloads - tab.
(Product Support / System Configuration / Drivers & Downloads / etc

http://downloads.dell.com/Pages/Drivers/latitude-d530.html

Scroll down a little until you see the bold black subheading -
Audio - Driver

Look in the chart. There are 3 audio drivers listed.
You are only concerned with the top 2.
They both start with Sigmatel STAC 92xx.........

The top one is Version - 6.10.0.5614
The second one is Version - 5.10.0.5515

The top one is for Windows Vista. (32-bit or 64-bit)
The second one down is for Windows XP, or Windows 2000.
(And for Windows XP 64-bit)

You know which Windows version is on your computer.
Main thing is it Windows Vista, or Windows XP/Windows 2000.

That is the two choices.

Using Windows XP as an example;

Go to the right of Version 5.10.0.5515, and click on the Yellow folder icon to the Right. (Under Download heading, and has a Red arrow pointing down)

A small window will come up -
Opening R171789.exe
Click on - Save File - at the bottom.

A small download window will come up. Allow the file to fully download, then DOUBLE-click right on the file name.

To the Left in the next small window, click on - Extract all files
At the bottom of the next 3 small windows, click on -
Next, Next, and Finish.

(If it is different post back in a Comment)

Restart your computer if not asked to do so.

[Windows XP: Click on Start > Turn Off Computer > Restart.
Windows Vista: Click on the Windows logo button (Start), then on Shut Down ]

When Windows fully loads again, you may get a pop-up out of your system tray, "Found new hardware device".
And perhaps another one, "Found Sigmatel audio device".

The system tray is at the bottom of your monitor screen. To the right is the time, date, etc.
It also has the Volume icon. The icon is a speaker symbol.

IF, you do not have the Volume icon in your system tray;

Example using WinXP,

Click on Start, then on Control Panel.
In Control Panel click on - Sounds, Speech, and Audio Devices
Then click on - Sounds and Audio Devices

In the small Sounds and Audio Devices Properties window, go to -Device volume - in the middle. (Blue)

Left-click in the empty small square box, to the left of -
Place volume icon in the taskbar.
(Puts a Green checkmark in the box)

Now go below in the window to the Right, and click on Apply.
Lastly go to the bottom Left, and click on OK.

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

Conputer is shutting down but it does not shut down


Hold the power button until the computer shuts down.
Restart and press F8 key repeatedly until you get a start up menu.
Select safe mode from the menu.
After the computer boots up, and you are at the desktop, go to my computer and select properties of the C drive (your system drive). Select tools from the tabs, then defrag. When defrag finishes, select check drive for errors and select the box, to automatically fix errors, and then ok, and yes at next window, allowing the computer to schedule the error check at next boot.
Reboot and allow computer to scan the drive.
After it finishes, you will continue into windows. Allow windows to boot. After it finishes, attempt to shut down again.
If it works, you fixed it. If not, you have a driver or program that will not quit, and you will have to research further to find out what is running and why it won't quit.

Fatal error


Turn off Windows XP firewall or click "allow" in the window and retry.

It's a window telling you that Windows firewall have noticed that CS1.6 is trying to connect to the internet and it asks if you want to allow it or not.When you press "keep blocking" you tell your firewall to stop CS1.6 from using internet.

You can't play online without using the net, right? :)

Do you have the windowsxp cd for installation not the recovery one the install one?.

 

If you have the disk allow windows to boot up from that disk allow it also  to go through the motion of installing windows till it can go no further.  PRESS "R" for Console then go to the dos prompt...  type         chkdsk /p

Allow windows to fix up things then remove the disk and try starting.
