Sound has nothing to do with infrared devices.
The yellow exclamation mark that you see under the device manager is due to drivers of the infrared device not found or is not installed properly.
There might also be a possibility that the device is not getting recognized by the computer due to corrupted drivers so the drivers of the particular needs to be installed again with the CD.

My dell D505 turned itself and will not turn back on power light flashes but thats it power supply is fine



  1. Locate Fast IR under Onboard Devices.


NOTE: Ensure that the COM port that you select is different from the COM port assigned to the serial connector.
  1. Press <Enter>.

  2. Use the arrow keys to select the infrared COM port setting.

  3. Press <Enter>.

  4. Follow the instructions on the screen.

After you enable the infrared sensor, you can use it to establish a link to an infrared device. To set up and use an infrared device, see the infrared device documentation and the Windows XP Help and Support Center

Where is irda on hp pavilion 6700??


This model does not have irda. It has an infrared sensor on the front edge below the touchpad, but that's just for a remote control device. Full specs and a service manual are available on HP's UK site, and no reference is made to any model of this series including irda.

Infrared or bluetooth on latitude d600 not working


first of all, did the first solution provider acutally believe that a good dell latitude d600 would be made by such a horrible company as compaq? thats insulting. Secondly, Dell doesn't seem to provide drivers, and i have yet to remember wher i got them in the past. In the mean time, next time you reboot the computer, press F2 to enter the BIOS setup. Press F2 untill you see a page mentioning something about either Infrared, IR, or IrDA. Make sure it is set to enabled. If you are lucky, windows will see it and attempt to download the drivers. Being i am running the Windows 7 Beta, i have yet to convince windows to do that. Good Luck

Dell latitude d600 pc notebook, infrared and bluetooth problem


Check the device manager to see if the drivers for the infrared device are there. If they aren't there, then go to Dell's site and download them. If they are, unistall, reinstall, the check Dell's site for updates. If the device manager shows everything working properly, the device itself may be malfunctioning. The same procedure for the bluetooth device.

USB Controller not recognized after crash


Well we can try something! First you gotta go to Device Manager! A quick way to get there is Start->Run type devmgmt.msc and press enter. If that don't work then Right Click on My Computer then click properties! Then Click on the hardware tab then the Device manager button, Under Universal Serial Bus Controllers if there are any devices with a yellow exclamation then right click on the device and click uninstall. then right click on any device and select Scan for hardware changes! This may or may not solve the problem, get back to me if any complications! If there isn't any device with a yellow exclamation or there aren't any Universal Serial Bus controllers get back to me! regards, babb
