I have a used Dell Inspirion 6000, it wasn't running very good because of viruses etc. I tried cleaning it and finally my daughter put her windows vista on it for me. Now everything seems to work good except no sound. It says No audio output device is installed (sound worked before)

You need the audio driver to make the audio device work...unfortuneitly dell never made vista drivers for that model so your out of luck BUT you can give the windows xp version a shot, i advise if you do decide to do that BACK UP & CREATE RESTORE POINT! here is the drivers download list its the sigmatel-driver under the audio section download the file labeled in blue. run the file follow instructions. you will be prompted to restart so save your work before hand...audio drivers are usually pretty compatable with operating systems they aren't built for. and for future reference you should always have your drivers downloaded before upgrading or re-installing your windows operating system. for this particular reason. best of luck and have a good day. oh and here's Dell Inspirion 6000 downloads page

Hi there!

You will need to install the driver for your sound adapter.

Please go to this link to download the driver for your sound: http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/download.aspx?c=us&cs=08W&l=en&s=bsdv&releaseid=R99254&SystemID=LAT_PNT_PM_D410&servicetag=&os=WW1&osl=en&deviceid=6466&devlib=0&typecnt=0&vercnt=2&catid=-1&impid=-1&formatcnt=1&libid=3&fileid=128550

install the driver and after restart, the sound should work again.

If you have any questions, please feel free to reply.

Dell inspirion 6000 is showing "loading PBR2.....done. NTLDR IS MISSING.HOW TO FIX


Use the Restoration Disk. When asked choose Repair.
(Non-Destructive Installation)

You are missing basic Windows files. Boot loader files.
Also you may have to prepare to replace the harddrive. May have bad Sectors on it.
Means I would copy off all personal information, after getting that laptop going again, or you may lose it.

What free software can be used to improve the sluggish performance of the Dell Inspiron 6000?


A slow computer could becaused by a number of things -1. InsufficientRAM memory - if your computer has less than 512Mb of RAM then increase it to atleast 1Gb of RAM.2. Registryproblems - clean and repair the registry, it will contain unused registry keys.Use programs such as Registry Mechanic, Microsoft RegClean etc.3. Uninstall/removeunused programs, this will also free up hard disk space.4. Notenough hard disk space - swap file space may need to be increased if Windows hasn'tbeen configured to manage it.5. Installlatest Windows updates.6. Updatevirus definition files and scan computer for viruses, Trojans, malware etc.7. Clearthe Internet cache for faster browsing.8. Harddisk maintenance is required at least once a month to keep it functioningefficiently.Runthe following programs - Disk Cleanup -removes temporary files that are no longer used and to recovers hard diskspace.DiskDefragmenter to make fragmented files into contiguous files and thereforethe hard disk access is faster.

Put the Windows disk in and repair the drivers. Should be easy follow on screen instructions, if not use the DELL OEM disk to start and do repair. I have a Dell Inspirion it did this b/c of a virus. I just did a repair WIN7 and all is good now.
