I need help pretty badly because I never really like asking for help. Usually I like to fix stuff myself but I'm really stumped on this one. I tried everything I could think of.
First of all I made my dell inspiron 6000 crash because I was trying to hook up my computer to my HDTV and I was messing with the advanced display settings so it could fit better on my TV. Now there is a blue screen pops up saying there's something wrong with the hardware or software.
So I reinstall Microsoft Windows XP Professional because I don't know how to repair it. Then it said " Cannot play back the audio stream: no audio hardware is available, or the hardware is not responding". So I thought I installed it wrong so I reinstalled it again and still had the same problem so I Went to troubleshoot and did almost everything but some of the stuff could not do because I don't have internet. I tried updating my drivers but I need internet to do that. I tried installing the drivers with the resource cd but it say "Device Object not present, restart the system and run setup again".so I went to device manager to try to enable the device but it won't give me a option like that under the properties for the device. But it says that the drivers for ethernet controller, multimedia audio controller,network controller, PCI device, PCI modem, and video controller (VGA compatible) are not installed but I can't reinstall

I need help and please forgive my grammar. If u need more info just tell me.

P.S. I your wondering how I got on the internet I'm using my LG Ally phone but it doesn't have hotspot otherwise I would have used that to update my drivers or reinstall them.

Run the Dell Diagnostics on the system.


If all is well, reinstall XP.

So you did a reinstall of the OS from scratch? If so, you need to go to the Dell Support site, enter your service tag number, and download and install all of the appropriate drivers for your system (be sure to start with the chipset driver).
