Go to support.dell.com (dont type www before that)
click on drivers & downloads
look for an option to enter a "Service Tag" This "Service tag" is located on a sticker somewhere on your actual computer. Enter it exactly as printed on the sticker.
It will bring you to a list of software that was on the disk that you are missing. Go to the audio section and try the different ones available.There may be several different files. i cant tell which one will work without actually looking at your computer sorry. Just try different ones and hope for the best.

Hope this helped

Good Luck!
Thanks for reading!

Emachine 3653 factory restore


You can use the Restore CD that came with the computer. The eMachines restore disk sets your PC back to factory settings with the original operating system and programs that were shipped with the computer. Doing so resolves many problems that can arise from long-term computer use, viruses, or the operating system slowing down.


1. To do a factory restore insert the restore CD then reboot the computer. When prompted, press any key to boot from the CD.


2. Select the option to "Reformat the drive to factory settings."

3. Follow the on-screen instructions to reinstall the operating system and original software that came with your computer.

4. Once the Restore finishes, you can re-install all the programs that you added to the computer as well as restore your files.


Reminder: Reformatting your computer erases all of your installed programs, personal documents, pictures and music. If you have the ability to, back up all of your personal data using a removable flash drive, external hard drive or DVDs before doing a Factory Restore.

There is no sound coming from the computer speakers. I have dowloaded drivers to no avail.


plug in headphones to see if you get audio... Audio Controller Could Be Faulty..

Try Uninstalling the Audio Drivers from Device Manager, Reboot

Last resort, Reinstall windows

If still no audio, It's most likely the controller chip which is integrated on motherboard, Highly doubtful that the speakers themselves are bad...

Windows xp pro will not boot with new hard drive


Its hard to tell just like this without having the computer in hand to check and test the jumpers and connection and all, but quick like this i think it might be a trojan virus that corrupted the boot sectors of the old hard drive, and when you copied the stuff from the old to the new, the virus followed and infected the boot sectors of the new one too. Try to reformat completely using the original windows install disk, and not the system restore/reinstall disk and reinstall windows after the format with the original windows disk again. If I was right, it should boot up OK with a fresh format and reinstall with the real windows CD, then install a virus scan and a spyware scan and scan and clean the old drive completely 2 or 3 times to be sure theres nothing bad left on it, then try to copy the whole disc, but skip the Windows repertory, the Program Files one too and the Documents and settings one also, cause those 3 are the ones most prone to corrupting a fresh install even if there is not any viruses in them. If it does not boot up OK after formating and reinstalling Windows though and says it's unbootable, then either there is a config error in the BIOS of the laptop, or the IDE controller that drives the disk is defective. If it's the BIOS settings, it's gonna be easy enough just changing the settings and won't cost you too much, and if its the IDE controller... then that's another story cause it's integrated in the motherboard like any other computer, so basically another computer will cost less than a new motherboard for a laptop. So if that is the case and the IDE controller is shot, you can still try to use an external USB drive to run the computer but not all computers support booting from the USB though, so before buying a brand new external drive, check the BIOS first to see if it does support USB booting.

I need to preform a system reboot/ restore for aSONY VAIOPCGGR250


Hi,

Holding zero is the method for restoring Toshiba computers. Sony Vaio should use F10. From there you can do a full system restore to factory defaults.

Hope that helps :)

Computer wont start


Have you tried doing a system restore? This will pretty much wipe the entire hard drive and reinstall the original factory settings and software. To get to the system restore screen turn the laptop on then as soon as you do that press the F8 key, then follow the instructions.

This again will reformat the hard drive and then reinstall the original system/settings, just as if it were out of the box.
