Having problems with your Dell Inspiron 6400 Notebook ?

Sound card driver is enabled but not started. I've tried about a million solutions and none of them work. Inspiron 6400 Sigma Tel.

Answers :


Thanks for using fixya.

All you need to do to solve this problem is to re-install the drivers for your lap top. If you are running a 64bit OS. You need to install the 64bit drivers for your sound card. If you are running a 32bit OS, install the 32bit drivers for your OS...

If installing the drivers doesn't do a thing even if you have tried installing a known good driver for your sound card.. chances are you have a bad audio device.. possibly caused by your laptop overheating. So avoid using your laptop on top of your bed or on an uneven surface. I hope this helps.

Thanks and have a nice day.

Please try to install the latest sound drivers from the website
