No Sound Dell Studio 1557 64-bit


No sounds on windows 7. I have a dell studio 1557 (64-bit) with windows 7 installed when i bought it last november. I used it without any problems until about february, when suddenly sound started not to work at all. Troubleshooting couldn't identify the problem but running even a simple program (such as sound recorder or playing a wmv file using windows player) wouldn't work. I tried system restore as a last resort and it fixed the problem. For a while. It reappeared again after some time, and i fixed it again that way, and again and again. So i am wondering if this has any easy fix, and whether any programs might have compatibility issues and cause this?

Upgrade On Dell Studio Xps 420

Trying to upgrade from vista on dell studio xps 420. The windows 7 operating system install disk will not auto launch and kicks the disk out of the drive after it scans from "my computer". I then get the insert disk message. Before attempting to install my windows 7 upgrade to my vista machine, i did all the uninstalls called out in the advisory scan. After uninstalling, i could no longer see my dvd drive in windows explorer or in "my computer".

I did a restore and again removed software. I then got an error 32. It seemed as if itunes had something to do with the missing drive. The update still would not load. If i selected the drive, it would scan, then the drive bay would open and i would get a "insert disk". The drive will read and write fine. Evey time i would do a driver update on the drive, i would get the best installed driver was present message.

My new dell studio 1745 running windows 7 (64 bit) home premium / intel core 2 duo cpu t6600 @ 2. 20ghz / 4gb ram / freezes (for about one minute - once per day) randomly. I'm usually running the following applications daily: ie8, ms office 07, including outlook, excel, and word; itunes, and adobe reader. As i mentioned above, the machine randomly freezes (for about one minute) once a day. Sometimes the mouse cursor disappears during the freeze. Other times it turns into the "i'm working. Please wait" spinning wheel, during the freeze period.

Dell Studio Display Driver Crashing

I have had a dell studio 1537 laptop for almost a year now, and i installed windows 7 around christmastime. Since then, i have had trouble running a few of my games that worked perfectly fine before. The screen will go black, and the lappy will freeze for a few moments before returning with a bubble message that says "your display adapter has stopped working and has recovered". The card is the standard integrated mobile intel 45 express chipset and it says my driver is up to date. What to do?

Dell Studio 1555 Wireless Problem

I have a new dell studio 1555 laptop. Out of box worked okay, but eventually unable to connect using wireless unless i am sitting and using it in room directly below router. Even then i can have slow connection and at times can't connect. Had time warner cable check router, new router and working fine on tech's laptop. Called dell-they had me reinstall drivers. Still not fixed. Do i really have to pay for tech support for what i have been told is a windows 7 problem with a brand new computer?  This has been a very frustrating problem.

Dell Studio 1737 Horizontal Lines

I just installed windows 7 on this dell studio 1737. I was using the pre-installed windows graphics driver, but am now using mobile intel(r) 4 series express chipset family drivers. Here is an example of the problem i am having at it's worst.

http://lh4. Ggpht.com/_8ex_rjq_ii4/tbesz6ptd4i/aaaaaaaaagq/y40jpm80mds/video%20problem%201.png

Now, i just discovered tonight that switching to 16-bit colours will fix the problem entirely, and still leaves windows working great, so i can live with that. But i am worried in case this is a hardware problem, in which case, i'm pretty screwed, right? Given that this isn't a graphics card, it is an integrated chip. Thanks for any help. Edit: this computer has worked fine on vista for about a year now, with no display problems in that time. It has only just happened, right after i installed 7.

Dell Studio 1537 Infrared Receiver Problem

How do i get my dell studio 1537 laptop, with win7 pro, and the "itecir infrared receiver (ec)" driver to recognize my rc6 xbox 360 universal remote control?

I have a dell studio 1537 laptop, with a built-in rc6 ir port. The "microsoft ehome infrared transceiver" is listed in my device manager. The "itecir infrared receiver (ec)" is listed in my device manager. I've tried uninstalling and re-installing each, several times, with reboots between.
I've tried the "update driver software" several times for each.

No matter what i do, i cannot get windows media center to move when i use the remote. The rc6 xbox universal remote works perfectly on the xbox in a different room. Windows media center navigates fine with the keyboard. I do not want to have to plug in an external usb ir receiver - i want to use the one that is built in to the laptop. Is there something i'm missing? Does anyone know any other websites that could help me with this?

Dell Studio 1749 Touchpad Scrolling Problem

Recently my laptop, dell studio 1749 lost it's proper ip address for wireless. I couldn't get a resolution to the problem by working with the router support people or internet provider people (should called dell). But i did get help from someone much more computer savy than me who fixed it by reinstalling, i guess pretty much everything. The computer really works fine now, with wireless connectivity, the only thing i no longer have is the capability of using the touchpad to swipe to scroll instead of using the scrollbar. How do i get that back? Windows 7 home premium. Is it a driver that didn't get reinstalled? How do i do that?  Should i try it myself if that's the case?

Close Lid Problem In Dell Studio 1555 Laptop

In power settings on my dell studio 1555 laptop, i changed close lid action to "do nothing" the laptop still stopped display when i tried to close the lid and use an external monitor only. I found this support forum about windows vista: http://social. Msdn.microsoft.com/forums/en/tabletandtouch/thread/06d8f624-bdd3-4d45-a62a-60c9bcb81f57

Within the thread, i found a workaround which neutralizes the menacing acpi lid driver. So microsoft, please fix this awful acpi lid driver that still screws up laptops that are connected to external monitors! This problem is at least 3 and a half years old.

Sound Problem With 32-bit Programs On Win 7 64-bit

64bit windows 7 rc, getting sound in 64bit programs, but not from 32 bit programs. About two weeks agoi had started my computer, there were windows updates that had installed the previous night. All seemed fine, but then when i went to go play a computer game, it comes to find out there is no sound from the game. After troubleshooting the game, i determined it wasn't the game that was the problem.

When i go to the directx diagnostic tool, and go to sound the tab, there is no sound card/driver, listed. Tells me to go and install one. But! When i run the 64bit version of dxdiag it actually picks up my sound card and drivers, and tells me everything is ok, no problems detected.

So i go and check to see exactly what was updated in the "review your update history" section in windows update, and all that was updated were "definitions update for windows defender. " So i go and do a system restore, and revert my computer to a time that was two weeks ago, assuming it would fix the problem. It didn't.

I still get sound through windows and internet explorer, just no sound when i play any game or other 32 bit application. I have a amd motherboard with realtek hd audio onboard audio card. I updated drivers through windows, no fix. I went to realtek's website, downloaded the drivers, used those to uninstall the old drivers and reinstall the new ones, no fix. I manually unstalled the old realtek drivers, and installed the new ones i downloaded from realtek's website, the problem persists.

So the conclusion i have come to is that i have a problem with directx11 itself, that it just wont recognize my 32bit side of the realtek drivers, and only the 64bit, i have searched for a directx 11 download, but can't seem to find one. So if anyone knows where i can download the directx 11 (i already tried getting it off my windows 7 rc cd, didn't work) or has any other ideas about my problem and how i can fix it.

Visual Studio 2005 Pro Compatibility With Win 7 Pro 64-bit

Can i use visual studio 2005 pro on windows 7 pro 64 bit? I use visual studio 2005 pro on xp pro 32 bit. Can i use it on windows 7 pro 64 bit?I have looked on the vs site and could not find a definitive answer to using this version on my new os. I know, they're putting visual studio 2010 et al. I do not have the kind of cash they're trying to get from me. T least, if i can use it, i can do some self made/self-used projects. I will download the free development systems. But, they run out after 60-90 days. I still need to get ms office standard 2007/10.

No Sound Coming From Dell Xps Laptop

My sound has suddenly stopped working. I am running win 7 64bit. I have run the audio playback troubleshooter, to no avail. I have also tried to see if the audio device was hidden and not set as default but no. I don't seem to get any errors from windows but spotify says that there is an error with my soundcard. Also when i try to configure the sound device and i click on the test button a message comes up saying it failed to play test tone. These are the only two times where the software has picked up on there being no sound but the message that was returned was non descipt as to the problem. Has anyone got any ideas?

Dell Vostro 1400 - No Sound After Upgrade

I am currently running windows 7 on a dell vostro 1400. I upgraded from vista pro. After upgrading, i too have had the joy of not being able to have any sound come out of my speakers. If i plug headphones into the headphone jack i can hear sound. If i click the volume icon on my desktop while sound is playing, the green line does come up on the volume control telling me that sound is being played. I have tried several suggestions read about on other forums. I have re-installed windows 7 again (the initial install and re-install were both clean installs). Any of the automatic driver checks i can do with windows 7 tells me my sound drivers are working fine or are the most up-to-date drivers i can have.

I have heard others say they have been able to go to their sound card manufacturer's website and download win 7 drivers. I'm not sure who my manufacturer is. When i go into device manager, under "sound, video, and game controllers" all i see is a generic "high definition audio device" label mentioned. I have manually uninstalled this and then had win 7 check for hardware change and re-install the new driver but it didn't change anything. Any suggestions for how to find the manufacturer of my sound card?

Dell Xp 410 Sound Card Driver Compatibility

I am preparing to install windows 7 on my dell xp410 computer, running vista, which has a creative x-f1 sound card. According to the windows 7 compatibility advisor the driver is incompatible with windows 7. I have gone to both the dell and creative web sites, but no updated driver is available.

1. Can i run the sound card in compatibility mode on windows 7?, Or  2. Can i install windows 7 on an external hard drive and run it in a dual boot system? Or 3. Is there another solution besides buying a new sound card.
