Dell Xps 1640 Broadband Driver Does Not Work


I have a dell xps 1640 with a built-in at&t card. After win7 upgrade the broadband driver does not work. I use dell control point manager to turn the wireless radio on but dcp is incompatible with win7. Does microsoft have a driver for a 5300 minicard for a dell xps 1640 laptop? How many wireless laptops have been shut down because of compatibility issues with win7 and mobile broadband cards?

Dell Xps M1210 Webcam Driver Problem

I have a dell xps m1210 originally with windows xp, i upgraded to vista and later to 7, the problem is when i upgraded to 7 i had problems since i didn't delete any information, after this i decided to reformat the laptop using windows7 (deleting the entire partitions) and aftet the installation of 7 i downloaded all drivers and everything was working fine, except the fan was makin a loud noise i decided to open the entire laptop and cleaned it, and put it back. After this the fan's noise quieted down, but the webcam is no longer working, it says that it needs drivers, and when i install it, at first it told me to plugged in the cam (built-in cam), after uninstalling and installing the driver a couple of times the camera got detected when installing the driver, but after this when i try to use it it says that no cam is currently installed.

When i go to devices it shows an unspecified device, usb composite device. I have not been able to find a driver that actually works, or can the problem be the cam is not compatible with windows 7, or when i opened the laptop how can i know which wire is the webcam's. When i rotate the cam the laptop makes a sound similar to when you plugged in a usb device i guess it detects the cam for a couple of seconds, what might be the problem.

Dell Xps 40 Upgrade Problem

I upgraded a dell xps 400 computer from vista home to windows 7 professional. The problem i am having is - anytime the computer reboots for a windows update or any other reason on its own it cannot find the disk drive it seems (i am never around and come back to see a black screen wanting me to select f1 to reboot or f2 to go to setup and f1 will not reboot). You have to power down the computer and turn it back on with the on/off switch and select to boot "windows normally" to get it to boot up windows 7. Other than that everything works fine.

Dell Xps 435t Locked Up

Everything was going fine, all the setups seemed to work. I went on the internet, tried mail, but it failed. Got a pop up from mcafee to restart computer so that the security programs would run. Okay, i clicked restart and when it came back i got to the login page which said "locked up". I entered the password and the screen went blank no restarts got me anywhere else, could not restart using f8 or f12. All i got was "resuming windows" and login page, entered password, screen went to blank. Unplugged, restarted, no change. Any ideas?

Upgrade On Dell Studio Xps 420

Trying to upgrade from vista on dell studio xps 420. The windows 7 operating system install disk will not auto launch and kicks the disk out of the drive after it scans from "my computer". I then get the insert disk message. Before attempting to install my windows 7 upgrade to my vista machine, i did all the uninstalls called out in the advisory scan. After uninstalling, i could no longer see my dvd drive in windows explorer or in "my computer".

I did a restore and again removed software. I then got an error 32. It seemed as if itunes had something to do with the missing drive. The update still would not load. If i selected the drive, it would scan, then the drive bay would open and i would get a "insert disk". The drive will read and write fine. Evey time i would do a driver update on the drive, i would get the best installed driver was present message.

No Sound Coming From Dell Xps Laptop

My sound has suddenly stopped working. I am running win 7 64bit. I have run the audio playback troubleshooter, to no avail. I have also tried to see if the audio device was hidden and not set as default but no. I don't seem to get any errors from windows but spotify says that there is an error with my soundcard. Also when i try to configure the sound device and i click on the test button a message comes up saying it failed to play test tone. These are the only two times where the software has picked up on there being no sound but the message that was returned was non descipt as to the problem. Has anyone got any ideas?

Dell Xps M1530 Backlight Does Not Turn Off

I have a dell xps m1530 with an nvidia 8600m gt graphics card. I upgraded to windows 7 professional 32bit and have noticed one small quirk. When the display turns off due to my power settings, the screen blanks, but the backlight remains on. Now, this is a small concern, you might say. I agree, but i am wondering if anyone else has seen this issue or can theorize its cause or a solution. I figure it's likely an incompatibility between older, no longer supported hardware (most recent m1530 bios is from 2008) and windows 7, but if anyone has any thoughts about it, i'd like to hear them, if for no other reason than to satisfy my curiosity.

Dell Xps Delayed Mouse Wheel Scrolling

Since installing win7-64 (dell xps) i have been noticing a weird scroll effect. Approximately 2-3 seconds after mouse-wheel scrolling, the active window "jumps" one more scroll increment in the same direction, without any input from me. This doesn't happen every time, but often enough that it causes problems. i.e. I'll scroll to a given location in windows explorer's folder list, then go grab a file to drag to a folder, but before i can drop it the folder list scrolls by itself. I've seen this happen in many programs, including windows explorer, ie8, firefox, eclipse, oxygen/xml, textpad. Anybody have any ideas what's causing this?

Dell Xps 710 - 8gb Ram With Win 7 64-bit

Unable to get to 8gb ram on x64 dell xps 710 windows 7. Less than 6 works fine. Notice asymmetric vs interleaved and sdram speed listings change. Dell xps710 did clean install of windows 7 x64 from xp. All went well and things worked fine for a while. Decided i wanted to get more out of my x64 machine so decided to upgrade the ram from 4x1gb to the system max 4x2gb. I originally ordered the wrong ram (pc2-6400 800mhz) and when i installed them the system wouldn't even turn on.

Picked up the correct pc2-5300 667mhz 4x2gb units and after a clean install i put 2x2gb sdrams in with 2x1gb original sdrams. Machine shows 6. 0 gb installed and lists them as 667mhz and dual asymmetric. Everything works fine.

If i installed 4x2gb sdrams, the system says 8gb installed but lists them as 800mhz and dual interleaved? Won't make it through startup. Will try to do a repair but nothing works. Go back to 6 or 4 gb and things are fine? Any ideas?

Xps M1210 Vista 32-bit Drivers Work For Win7 32- Bit ?

Xps m1210 with vista 32 bit- will the drivers for vista 32 bit work for windows 7 32 bit? I have had very little help from dell on this one- so far from what i have found, it sounds like the drivers for vista should work fine for windows 7, but i want to be sure before i install windows 7 on this computer and end up making it useless for days because a wireless card driver wont work or something. Can anyone tell me with certainty if the drivers will or wont work for windows 7?

Dell Travel Remote Control Does Not Work

The dell travel remote control ir does not work with window 7 (64-bit). The computer is a dell laptop studio xps 1640, running windows 7 (64-bit) and labeled with the windows 7 compatible sticker. The remote control can turn on the pc, because that is handled by the bios. The remote control is (according to dell) compatible with windows media center, but that does not work with windows 7. According to multiple reviews found at various web-sites, the remote control works fine with windows vista and media center. Do you know if there is any way to make it work with windows 7, or if there will be support in a future update to windows 7?

The product code is: dell part# : 412-1034
Manufacturer part# : pu576

Will Dell E1405 Sound Card Work With Win7?

I installed the rc on my pc and it had all kinds of problems recognizing the sound card. Eventually (i have no idea how it happened) it found it and seemingly worked until the middle of a song and then said it didn't recognize it again. But i downloaded the latest upgrade advisor and was told that it will work with no additional work on my part. So did msoft add to the driver support for sound cards?

Btw: my system is a dell e1405 laptop with a sigmatel high def audio codec (no idea what the actual sound card is. ) It was shipped in february 2007 with vista home premium. Upgraded to 2 gb ram, 120 gb hd, cd/dvd burner etc. I appreciate all help offered.

Dell Aio 926 Printer Won't Work

I'm stumped. I installed windows 7 on my laptop and went to the dell support website to follow their instructions to the letter to get my aio 926 printer back running again. I even had to pay $50 for phone help (cause my warranty was up) when i clicked on the wrong choice that locked me out of something so i couldn't run the program at the end that installed the printer driver. Even after that got straightened out, and the printer is now installed, it still won't print off the laptop. I read bobby's advice about the window's update kb975891. I checked all my updates, and from what i can see it hasn't been installed, but i don't know how to get it installed to see if that helps. Any ideas?

Dell Studio Display Driver Crashing

I have had a dell studio 1537 laptop for almost a year now, and i installed windows 7 around christmastime. Since then, i have had trouble running a few of my games that worked perfectly fine before. The screen will go black, and the lappy will freeze for a few moments before returning with a bubble message that says "your display adapter has stopped working and has recovered". The card is the standard integrated mobile intel 45 express chipset and it says my driver is up to date. What to do?
