Hello, if your sound card says "Null" it means that your computer isn't seeing the drivers for the card. Here's what to do. First, find the exact model of your Dell. Write this down. Now go to dells site and look for "Sound" drivers. Download the driver and run it. This should install the newest drivers for your sound card. Turn off the computer and re start it. That should be it. If this doesn't work your sound card may be bad. Hope this helps.

HCL company system OS : XP

Please talk to HCL if your system is new. If you try to fix it yourself then your warranty will null and void.
If your system is old then reinstall the sound card driver from the driver CD that came with the system. If this does not solve your problem then you sound card has aged out. Please buy a PCI sound card and enjoy the music.

Computer dosen't read disk but laptop dose

If I understand what you are saying, you have a desktop computer that can't read a CD/DVD but your laptop computer can.
Sounds like the CD has gone bad on your desktop and must be replaced.

Help me my display cart not installed.Pentium (R) 4 2.40GHz prescott 533 give me display driver send my yahoo id

Inorder to DL the correct driver you need to know which device you have and the OS your running.

to find what device you have installed into your computer EXACTLY

  1. Click "Start."
  2. On the "Start" menu, click "Run."
  3. In the "Open" box, type "dxdiag" (without the quotation marks) , and then click "OK."
  4. The DirectX Diagnostic Tool opens. Click the "Display" tab.
  5. On the "Display" tab, information about your graphics card is shown in the "Device" section. You can see the name of your card, as well as how much video memory it has.
if(document.getElementById('kb_ff3') != null) showLayer('kb_ff3'); if(document.getElementById('kb_ff3_win') != null) showLayer('kb_ff3_win'); if(document.getElementById('z_ff3') != null) toggleZippy('z_ff3'); if(document.getElementById('z_ff3_win') != null) toggleZippy('z_ff3_win'); if(document.getElementById('kb_ff') != null) showLayer('kb_ff'); if(document.getElementById('kb_ff_win') != null) showLayer('kb_ff_win'); if(document.getElementById('z_ff') != null) toggleZippy('z_ff'); if(document.getElementById('z_ff_win') != null) toggleZippy('z_ff_win'); if(document.getElementById('kb_win')) showLayer('kb_win'); if(document.getElementById('z_win')) toggleZippy('z_win'); if(document.getElementById('kb_Windows')) showLayer('kb_Windows'); if(document.getElementById('z_Windows')) toggleZippy('z_Windows'); if(document.getElementById('kb_CA')) showLayer('kb_CA'); if(document.getElementById('z_CA')) toggleZippy('z_CA'); if(document.getElementById('kb_non_US')) showLayer('kb_non_US'); if(document.getElementById('z_non_US')) toggleZippy('z_non_US'); Once you have this info Google it + Driver Download

When the results return look for a site that has the root name as the manufacturers


this is the manufacturers sites driver section this isnt your driver your site address will be similar but different after

Find that link and go to it and choose the OS (Windows, Linux, or Mac most of the time) you wish to download the driver for
