Windows Vista - Unable to download CD or software

I have a Dell Inspiron 1526 and I am unable to download any software from CD which are authorized and has copy right to use, however I could not do that because of windows vista, it says adminstrator right has been restricted. Since I am the owner of the laptop, I am sure I have not set up any administration rights so far, It has been two months I bought this laptop and I have not used it properly. I spoke with Dell tech support, they could not help me out because I bought this from Best Buy, therefor I am contacting you guys to resolve this ASAP. For your information, I am presently in India and if you have any questions please feel free to call me at +91 9884718128. I would appreciate if someone call me and resolve this issue.

No Sound

Changing back to XP means you will have to download sound card drivers for XP. These drivers are availble on Dell's website.

Dell Inspiron 1526 blank screen after hibernation

Press Fn Key plus POWER key ans see if the diagnostics will start. If no go, then the system is likely in a No POST state.

You can check the warranty status here:

and no paperwork is needed to get warranty support, all you need is the express service code on the bottom and be a authorized user of the system.

Unable to install the audio driver

You should be able to download the Realtek AC97 HD drivers and use those with your audio device.

Post your results here, especially if you still need assistance or if the driver doesn't work for you...

Vista no longer recognizes my CD-ROM

"...manual driver update..." ... from the device's included driver disk? Or from a web-source? If web-source, how long ago and from where?
" found the hardware but was still unable to load driver software..." ... So Windows does recognize it then? Unable to load what .. the driver(s)?
"...Vista just isn't recognizeing my CD-ROM at all" ... ??? If I understand correctly, Windows "device manager" recognizes when its deleted, then refreshed, but Vista doesn't recognize it? By this do you mean it's icon does not show up in "My Computer"?

Lot of questions I know, but it's necessary to define the trouble in order to know which direction to go next.


Here are a couple of very helpful and comprehensive software diagnostic tools for you to download at They are both FREEWARE and the same tools licensed to Nero for inclusion in their software products.

Installation: Simply extract/unzip the file to any chosen directory and run the executable (*.EXE).

1. "Nero DiscSpeed". Thoroughly tests speed and performance of your optical drives(s).
- Refer to the program's Help for guidance.
- User guide also available at
- Here's a quick shorthand:
a. File > Options > Standard Tests > Choose which tests you wish to run (if unsure, use the default settings), then "OK"
b. Click "Start"

2. "Nero DriveSpeed". Adjust/control your drive's spin /up/down times and noise levels.


You need to get the latest and best driver package, then re-install. If you can provide the make/model/series of the drive, I can provide you with a reliable source to download.

Please report back, and in all likelyhood we'll get you some joy.
