did you ask dell first on their forum. be best,
what does find mean? the jack, or the driver or both.?
there is no led in any headphone jack that is analog out, not SPDIF. (for sure) the book even tells you that.
im reading your manual now at dell, and there is no such port.
on this PC.

I plug and play fails only getting driver for this maker, will work.
are you in the UK,,, we are USA< and when I google that maker it lands UK , why? IDK.
the A79LH , is that you model not stated?
is it USB connected? If not say what?
not is one old and rare scanner my guess over 10 years old.
and w10 does go beyond that for sure if maker stops support and their web page has zero legacy support.
there are generic scanner software apps you can buy and might work.

I would try to contact the maker, find them and contact them.

Hey bro, a gross consumption of system resources s a good sign of... sorry to be the one to tell you, but a virus. A good free virus removal/detector is avg ( ). If this isn't the problem, you might want to shut down extra junk. You can delete stuff from your Programs folder, or you can do a temp thin. Under run on the start menu, type msconfig. From here, you can shut down any programs that you don't need. Just make sure to restart when you're done.

clearing the BIOS password (not HDD PW)
I will ASSUME its BIOS ADMIN PW locked out. lost PW.
you only said clear but did not say lost the word lost, means
clearing the old (one must know the old first to clear in on most PCs)
is done 4 ways, 4 generations of PC, the newer the harder.
did you RTM first at DELL D630?

your PC is 10years old, so that may be easy, IDK ,lets find out.

Support for Latitude D630 ATG, came with nasty XP OS.
rule 1, in this PC if you turned on TPM chip inside BIOS
that means the PW is locked out to hackers. ok?
if yes then the PC can only be unlocked by
we are not so can't fix that, why ask here and not dell first is odd.
The PC new has this turned off, so others must have turned this on. fact 1.
fact2: page 71 in your users guide

If you forget any of your passwords, contact Dell (see "Contacting Dell" on page 152). For your

protection, Dell technical support staff will ask you for proof of your identity to ensure that only an
authorized person can use the computer.
if you can;'t prove you own this PC to DELL that leaves what.

Here is one hacker,(not an endorsement its, desperation)

here is the Desperado pages.,

see all those, most will be what I call SCALPERS.

take your $20 and it fails, and no money back.
OK, that is what you get for not writing it down.
some of the youtube posts are inane.
wrong PC,
worse is bios is now dead, with admin locked you can not boot windows, you can not F2 or F12 hot key the BIOS and BIOS
is 100% locked out. so all those videos are silly as are the PC with he HDD lockout, or TPM chip locked. and more there are smart card locks outs and more, so why not ask at first.

Horizontal lines on bottom third of my Toshiba (Satellite Pro) Laptop with XP windows got fixed by flicking my finger on the laptop screen! Was it a loose connection? I don't know. Change of screen resolution did not help, Rebooting, did not help nor restoring to prior dates. Thank you guys.

no real question asked. no context for sure. if the PC fails to charge the battery is bad 99% of time. if the PC run perfect on AC pack with not battery present, the battery is bad. if batter fails to run the PC with NO AC power. always have 2 batteries, they fail easy if you must have batteries, have 2. some folks just run on AC all the time. learn that the charger is not genius level. it will be fooled by a bad battery so very easy. some batteries seem ok but have 1/10 left capacity the charger does no understand that. and acts odd.

Connect the monitor to the laptop. Use a standard VGA-to-VGA cable. Plug one end of the VGA into the VGA-out port on the left side of the laptop. Connect the other end of the cable to the VGA port on the rear of the monitor.
Turn the computer on. When it boots up try using the "F" keys along the top row of the computer keyboard. One of the F keys should extend the desktop to your monitor. (Other F keys may move the entire display to the monitor or make all displays go dark.)

I guess you meant the HDD is encryption locked
if yes and lost the PW, did you , ?
then all is lost for ever
this is why CIA uses this tech, just for that one reason , !

all you can do now is guess PW,
next time write it down, ok? (hide paper in secret book in home)

end pain.

You might need to go into the computer's BIOS and see if it's set to boot from a bootable CD or USB device. If it's set to only boot from the hard drive, it won't even look at other drives. Different computers use different ways to access the BIOS: you might try pressing the F12 key when the boot logo appears. Check your owner's documentation - it should tell you the procedure for your computer.
