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.

Hello Dear,

I would suggest to use the Chipset Drivers CD to install all the drivers. I hope you would be having the CD which comes with the Laptop.

Flickering screen on startup


Sounds like hardware. Several possibilities come immediately to mind:

1) Backlight is going bad. (It's a fluorescent light).
2) Bad inverter
3) Loose or bad cable in laptop hinge

If the picture is OK using an external monitor, it's probably one of those three.

I've used these guys before for screen repair: Unknown document title.

Drivers not found.


Your Compaq came with Vista installed. Finding drivers for XP Pro with SP2 seem to be very troublesome. Somewhere HP Compaq has these drivers for you laptop. If you call them & they find out you bought XP Pro they will not support you in finding the proper drivers for XP Pro. How ever you can call & ask what it will cost for a recovery CD for XP Pro w/SP2.
Click the link to Compaq & listed is your laptop & what software & drivers are listed. If you need other drivers that are not listed, post what you want I'll try & find them for you. Please be as detailed as possible.
