    Hello, I borrowed a Dell Latitude 630 because my Compaq nx9420 can hardly even boot up now. I'm not sure if the sound stopped after I installed a game or after I plugged my headphones into what I was pretty sure was a headphone port. I don't remember, but all I know is that I can't play World of Warcraft and I'm freaking out. Can someone please help me? It has XP.

    The Dell Latitude D630 laptop is several years old and doesn't have the hardware and speed for gaming, so I'm surprised you're able to use it for that purpose.

    I've worked on a couple of them in the past that had built-in speaker issues and which forced their owners to use external speakers.

    Well I actually figured it out. I had to go to advanced and raise the WAVE bar because it was all the way down. World of Warcraft isn't very graphic intensive, a lot of people have older systems and just run it on lower settings. It's just to hold me over until I get my check from ssi and order the parts for this build: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/JHDqt6

    Yikes! :eek: I haven't paid that much for a desktop system since 1997 - when they used to cost a small fortune. :sick:

    Yep but it will run even the new games for a while.
