Question about Dell Inspiron 640m PC Notebook

2 Answers

No sound I istalled Window XP SP2 on my Laptop and no have no sound at-all. Error 28 comes up and it doesnt even seem to recognise any hardware never mind any driver for the sound source. My audio control volume doesnt even give me any option to enable or disable mute etc. Would be great if you could help resolve this as sound was ok before my system showed signs of a virus so I started a fresh reinstall of the operating system.

Have you tried an external output from your laptop i.e connect headphones . If you can hear something then the drivers are properly installed. If not then more likely the drivers have been overwritten by SP2 and u need to install original drivers from laptops website. Check under Control Panel - sounds and audio then see what device is under your sounds playback.

Microtek Scanner installation issue


If running XP SP2, then try clicking Start > right click My Computer > properties > Hardware tab > Device Manager button > expand Imaging devices > right click on your Microtek ScanMaker > uninstall > Re boot > and let XP pick up the device and let the found hardware wizard configure it.

I have seen plenty of hardware that when following the devices manufacturer's instructions for install, such problems as you're having occur and XP SP2 usually will cure it, though you may still need the device manufacturer's CD (for the driver) in your optical drive.

This link: http://support.microtek.com/downloads/bymodelname.phtml?viewtype=2&srch_in=ScanMaker+5950&frmsearch.x=10&frmsearch.y=11&frmsearch=Search&frm_rqst=2&axn=1 will allow you to select between the 5950 and 5950 Pro then on the next page you will be able to download the latest XP driver for your Scanmaker among drivers for other Operating Systems also.

I hope this helps, and Good luck.
