    dell inspiron 6000 audio drivers Win7/8

    Hello All,

    I thought I would post an interesting Installation of Windows I did on my Dads 2006 Dell Inspiron 6000. I am posting it in the Drivers section because Dell never made a Audio driver for the Inspiron 6000 past Windows XP. I had to do this trick for Widows 7, so I thought I would try on Win 8.

    There were a lot of post on how to install the drivers onto Widows 7 back in 2009. This link from the SevenForums helped me install Win 7 on this laptop. So I decided to try the same thing on Windows 8. Dell Inspiron 6000 audio drivers - Windows 7 Forums

    1. Installed Windows 7 32 Bit - Processor does not support 64.
    2. Installed Sigmatel STAC 9200 series audio driver 6.1 for Windows Vista
    3. Upgraded to Windows 8 32 Bit
    4. DONE and running like a champ.

    I would like to add that Many other Vista and Win7 Drivers should help prolong other older generation computers/Laptops. I have done the same trick to a Gateway M475 with success.......

    You loose nothing by trying.

    I will at some point be trying this as a Fresh Install, Buts its Dad Computer so.........
