Dell :: Req- A Step By Step Guide To Remove IDT High Definition Audio In Windows 7

Apr 12, 2010

Hi Friends,

I am writing this new post after getting really frustrated from Googling all through the internet and not finding 1 decent solution.

I have a Dell Studio 1555 laptop and after bearing the pathetic sound quality both from the speakers and external speakers/headphones for months I finally decided to do something about it.

Apparently its not a hardware fault as everything seems to work technically fine but the sound output is really pathetic/high on treble and noise. Theres a word all around the internet that IDT High Definition Audio Codec sound drivers are bad idea and the default ones provided by Windows are much better.

Well i tried to remove, IDT Audio from my laptop permanently but to no avail. There is no option to remove at Add/Remove programs, so i went to Device manager and uninstalled the sound drivers. Upon restarting the PC the IDT audio popped backed in. So, I uninstalled once again and deleted the IDT folder but upon restarting it was back on again. Only that it took 5-6 minutes to install.

Can anyone suggest a way to remove IDT drivers permantly in Windows 7?

Thanks a lot.
Your friendly neighbourhood geek

Dell :: How Do I Remove The Two Partitions Before OS Partition?

May 14, 2010

I have the Precision M6500, and before the Windows 7 partition there are two smaller partitions that I don't want or need. I will install from the DVD if I need to reinstall it and I use Acronis to do full image backups.

So I started up with changing the active partition from one of those recovery partitions. Suddenly I get the "BOOTMGR missing" pain in the a$$. No problem to fix it of course, I use a Linux Partition Manager boot CD for that.

But the problem is that if it reacts that badly to that change (I even tried the original Windows 7 DVD to startup repair, fixboot and fixmbr, but it didn't help),

then I fear that removing those partitions all together will really mess things up. Can I force the Windows 7 bootmanager over to the OS partition, or is this some custom Dell stuff that means that I would have to reinstall 7 totally to get it fixed?

Dell :: Possible To Remove Mouse Button

Dec 29, 2008

A year ago (November 2007) there was a thread titled Possible to remove key from keyboard? which is now closed. I have a similar question and one of the mods may want to merge the two threads and open the combined one until the topic is thoroughly discussed.

In any case, here is my issue. My wife has an XPS that is only about four months old.

Suddenly the left mouse button is stuck partially pressed down. If this were a keyboard key I would just pop it off and clean underneath it. But, I don't know if you can remove the mouse buttons that way or not. Does anybody have any suggestion? And before someone helpfully offers returning it to Dell for warranty work - do you want to do without your computer for a month? She doesn't either, so that's a non-starter.

Dell :: How To: Remove Factory Stickers

Aug 11, 2009

1) Start with one corner of the sticker and pick at it with your nail and nothing else (unless you know for a fact what you are using will not scratch your computer) until the corner is lifted high enough to grab onto and peel back. Note: this is very tough in some occasions so just slowly continue to work the sticker, I promise it will come up.

2) Once you can get a hold of the corner you picked up, pull back slowly to ensure you bring at least most of the adhesive up with the sticker.

3) After you get the sticker up there will probably be a little adhesive right where you attempted to pick at the corner or maybe somewhere else. If this is the case do not rub it or pick it or anything, just use the adhesive on the sticker you took off to "dab" up the rest of the adhesive on you're computer. (Almost like back in the day when it was clean-up time and there was playdoh every where, you'd gather it all in one ball.) And repeat for however many stickers you have.

If you follow these rules and are careful, you will not have any trouble getting the unsightly childish stickers off of your computer.

Dell :: How To Remove The Base Assembly Of E6500

Mar 10, 2009

Dell say to remove battery which I did. Then to loosen the M2.5 x 5 mm captured screw (what is that?) Is that the thing that is on right side and is in the "cutout" of the media bay and ejects when

pushed (not the media bay).

When upside I see a hole on the right side and about half way up. And the last step is to slide the cover away (I am assuming that

I remove 5 screws on the cover itself (the 4 on the left and one in the center).

Dell Vostro 1440 :: How To Remove Keyboard

Aug 2, 2012

I need to get inside my vostro 1440 to replace the wireles card, but I can't figure out how to remove the keyboard.The user manual at URL.. says to "Pry up to release the top four snaps securing the keyboard to the computer."

what does "pry up" mean?I think I shoud be lifting up something metallic (the keyboard frame) not the flimsy pastic that surrounds the keys right? do I need to do all 4 snaps at once? when I push with a screwdriver I can't feel which way it's supposed to give and don't want to damage the laptop

Dell :: How Do I Completely Remove Bluetooth Drivers From My System?

Mar 15, 2009

I was trying to re-install the Bluetooth drivers (R140135) on my system (configuration in my signature),

and hence I removed all the Bluetooth related devices in the Device Manager. But now when I try to install the drivers, I get this message -

"Please uninstall current Bluetooth installation before continuing"
I have tried to remove it from where ever I could find it, I renamed the default Windows Vista drivers so that they are not loaded.

There is no mention of Bluetooth anywhere now, but the DELL driver file still gives me that error!
