Soundbar on my dell 9000 computer doesn't work

Remove or unplug the soundbar from the system and restart the computer. Reconnect the soundbar and check that the LED is lit. If the soundbar does not connect, see if it is listed in Windows Device Manager. Swap the USB soundbar to another USB port.

Is there an SD card slot on the Dell OPTIPLEX 780?

There is no card reader on most models of the Optiplex 780. There may be a card reader on the SFF unit. The MT, desktop and USFF do not include a card reader. You can add a 3.5" internal card reader to the MT or desktop models for under $20. You could use an external USB card reader with any Optiplex 780.I hope this helps. Cindy Wells

How do you install a hard drive

Larry provides great answer up there ^^^ which is better down here. Larry Ng Jun 23, 2022 NO PC told (dell has 10000 models) no OS told, windows what"? no drive told. my wild wild guess is the boot drive is locked. and you are attempting and ******* act. to it. like deleting key parts of a running OS (windows) (like deleted tires on rims of 85mph moving car, fails) no real goal told, but the nebular "install HDD" one can add a 2nd drive easy or any of 1000s of external HDD models or external or internal, SSD or even a thumb drive. (vast) (just 2 steps in fact) but the boot drive , change out is far far far more complex. and you never not told that. you want to mess with the C: drive? now let me guess the real goal (sad I must) the OS drive windows is failing ( common) and some lil' bird told you it needs a new boot drive, and then fail to say so here. okay I will bite. 1: buy a new SSD (hdd fail and are slow) 2: buy a new OS, from MS. or get free w10. (ask how) 3: then put in new SSD, 4: run the w10 installer media (it is free) 5: load w10 to the SSD fresh 6: answer the silly 30 questions it asks. 7: and click activate. (buy it) ..

I have the hp inspiron

Yes your computer has a DVD writer... It should have the software to burn DVDs and CDs


The Dell Inspiron 531 is a desktop personal computer with a Microsoft Windows operating system. An Inspiron equipped with a CD burner can be used to record audio discs using Windows Media Player, which comes installed on the Inspiron as a standard part of the software package Dell loads onto its computers. Blank, recordable discs and pre-recorded audio CDs are the only supplies needed for the project.

Dell E173FP stuck in power save mode

Just had the same problem... what worked for me was simple. Unplug the cable from the monitor, hit the power button a few times until Dell screen poped up with a few color bars because it knew it was no longer connected to a PC. Then plugged the cable back in and all was fixed.

Is somebody can help me to repair this problem please?

jacker same PC? the coin cell battery RTC is dead, and can not be ignored like that ever. Dell Dimension 4300 Bios A06 Intel 845 chipset relic. P4 (400hz /2Ghz max) not told by all, buy a dead PC did you?, or dumpster dived it ?? when did PC laST RUN Perfectly not told, at all, wow, history ZERO 000000000 F9xxxxxxxxx is firmware, above F8xxxxxxxxxx or failed out of the blue and casing never opened by you? (messed with) rules of RAM, DDR. a 2001, (no typo) relic and useless PC for sure. no modern OS runs here.!!!! those are POST errors for DDR1 banks. 2 slots of ram. DDR1 old not new with ******* high density ram. test them 1 by 1 , at a time in bank 0, channel A slot???????? 512 MB max per slot, so , 2 slots are 1GB max. per the manual I read to you PC133 (non-ECC or ECC) and not Registered, RAM, SDRAM only , buffered. the ram must be in matched sets, same SKU means same exact P/N# intel and dell told you that and MMC is intels chip. The bios must like any ram you buy, MUST. this mobo has 4 LED panel for 4 bit binary POST errors what does the 4 LED codes show. 4 yellow is bad bios, means cannot finish POST and more. in the free manual this relic has no VGA port on mobo at all that means only a PCI video card is allowed, to get video that means it can fail when it tries to steal, VRAM from DDR1 bank. sure can , try other VGA cArd? oops wrong this PC has AGP slot and we all know from 2001 year 1/2 the AGP 4x cards made do not work here, only DELLs list , work. 4x/2x modes at 1.5 V , using 3.3v AGP card will blow up(smoke) some dual voltage cards do work but only in DELLS LIST 32bit only. we all hated AGP then , it is a huge horror. then. PCI video works better. try one for $5 used, PCI not PCI-express does not fit here. as you can see I can not see your PC and all things connected no what VGA card you have exactly and matters first. VRAM issues. reading old dell form real posts at dell 1. 6200 nVidia AGP for basic work, light low level settings in games. 2. 6600 nVidia AGP for mid to low end gaming. 3. 6600 GT AGP, good over all lower mid level card for gaming, that would be my least choice for your system. 4. 7600 GS AGP, for lower mid level gaming 5. 7600 GT AGP, for a good over all card for your system and power supply. do not attempt OC, overclocking or it will fail this $9 at flea bay, 10 times PCs value. 21 years old
