might have roasted your speakers voice coils a little which may be sending the amp into protect mode throw a speaker on it that you know works and if it doesnt trigger the protect circuit then you probably have a blown or almost sub.
send a test print from the driver.
check the connection configuration.
if connect with serial port (check seting from the port (THE SPEED HAVE TO BE THE SAME)
if connect with USB, if necessery, install the driver again and test.
if necessery flash the firmware and test (worst case scenario)
if can't comunicate and if using paralel port:
check if the fuse next to the paralel port is burn ( on the logic board.). replace it.
dont forget to unplug the power cable and the comunication cable.
Try rebooting your computer. I have a similar desktop and sometimes after a period of use the drive seems to power down - if I shut down and start up again it seems to work again.
If this doesn't solve the problem, check the connections inside the computer to make sure the drive has the data cable and power cable connected securely.
If you bought the Inspiron 3 days ago, contact Dell for warranty service and a replacement. If you just bought the drive itself 3 days ago, take it back or return it to the retailer you bought it from for a replacement.
have your tried removing the driver and reinstalling? sounds like a corruption to me. been struck by lightening / power surge? anything funky in the computer's behaviour three days ago, but not related to priner?
