Can't Install On Dell Inspiron 9400

I have a dell inspiron 9400 which is about 2. 5 yrs old and comes with a t2250 processor 1. 73, 2mb, dual core yonah, c0. I ran the windows 7 upgrade advisory and other than issues with outlook and my ricoh card reader, it indicated that it should work. I upgraded to 2 gb of ram and put a fresh install of windows xp home edition complete with updated xp drivers. When i look at the system settings in the control panel, i do not see 64- bit so i know my system is 32-bit. However, according to microsoft, windows 7 home premium runs in both 32 bit and 64 bit.

This is my problem. When i tried to install it within xp, i get the dialog box stating " your computer can't run this version of windows. You need an installation disc that's compatible with your computer. For more information, check your computer's system information. " When i boot from the cd, after it installs windows files, it goes to a screen showing, windows fail to start.

A recent hardware or software change might be the cause. To fix the problem i need to run the install disk and click repair. Then it shows file:windows\system32\ootwinload.exe 

Status: 0xcoooo35a info: attempting to load a 64-bit application, however this cpu is not compatible with 64-bit mode. Once again does not windows 7 home premium run in both 32 and 64 bit? If so, why can't i install it?

Installing Win7 On Dell Inspiron 15

I have a dell inspiron 15 (1545) laptop which came with windows 7 home basic 64-bit edition preinstalled. Now i want to upgrade it to windows 7 ultimate x64 edition. I started with initializing the setup in the existing windows but the setup displayed an error saying that the file spwizeng.dll is either not designed to run on windows or contains error.

Then i tried to install the windows at boot time so on restarting and pressing any key to boot from dvd the setup started loading files which took about 10-15 minutes to complete and after that a error screen is displayed showing an error in the file winlogon.exe and cannot be loaded plus some other things and gives two options enter to continue and esc to exit.

I exited the setup and on restarting my previous version of windows booted normally. Now what is the problem i cant understand. I have two queries- 1. Can windows 7 be installed by the method i adopted. If not is it necessary to format the partition in which there is an existing windows 7 home basic. 2. If formatting is necessary , then how to format that partition? I have two partitions c & e of equal size out of which windows is installed on c. I do not want to get my e drive formatted as it contains all the important data.

Dell Inspiron 15 Laptop - Bsod - Bugcode_usb_driver

I just got a dell inspiron 15 laptop about a month and a half ago for a graduation present, i bought it from best buy. It's been working great ever since i got it, except this week, i've gotten a bsod twice saying that the error is bugcode_usb_driver. The only thing i've ever had plugged in via usb has been a computer game controller, a mouse, and my dad's external hard drive when i first got it to transfer my files from my old computer.

I've looked up this problem on these forums and have found some answers, one of them being that i should update my usb drivers, but i'm honestly not sure why my usb drives would need updating if this laptop is brand new and i've had hardly anything plugged into my usb ports.

Dell Inspiron 1521 Microphone Not Working

I upgraded to windows 7 a few months ago and have tried everything i can think of to get my microphone working but to no avail. It is an internal array, so i don't need to plug into the jack. I have installed the sigmatel audio drivers. The device shows up as enabled and set as my default device. The microphone is not muted, but when i go to a recording program, it reads that the microphone is not picking up any sound at all. The windows troubleshooter doesn't know what to do either, does anybody have a fix?

Does Dell Inspiron 1721 Will Be Able To Install Win 7 ?

Does anyone have any information at all regarding whether or not dell, amd, microsoft. Etc plan on releasing any software/hardware driver updates so that the dell inspiron 1721 will be able to install windows 7? I find it annoying that the windows upgrade advisor advises that windows 7 can be installed on my laptop, however i have not been able to get through installing the upgrade. I get the following: "these devices might not work properly after the upgrade. -Storage controllers: amd raid console"

I've been unsuccessful finding an upgrade to the raid console driver. I've tried continuing the installation anyway (via the upgrade, and the custom install) however the installation hangs at the very end of both (completing installation) and then reverts back to vista. Does anyone have any insight into this?

Battery Life For Dell Inspiron T4300

I have a dell inspiron t4300. It has an option to select a power plan for saving energy on the laptop as well as on the battery. You can "click" the disable battery charger while working on your laptop at home. This option is supposed to save energy without giving up speed or power and prolongs the longevity of your system. Per the instructions, if you keep your computer plugged in all the time, this feature will stop the battery from charging until the next time you reboot your computer and your battery will continue to perform normally. Well, when i turn my laptop off at night and reboot in the morning, won't my battery be dead?

I also have a computer service that runs updates, checks for viruses and takes care of running my back-ups every night. I don't think this will affect my services with them, but what would happen if my computer is turned off and my battery is dead? If anyone has worked this feature of their laptop, please let me know if you're satisfied with the results.

Record Using Line In With Dell Inspiron 1520

I am attempting to record through line in. I have opened up my recording devices menu, and i have two options: microphone and line-in. I have selected line-in as my default device, and it has the green check mark symbol, which i assume means that it is enabled and working. Despite this, however, the monitor level to the right of line-in does not respond to noises. Instead, i hear noise from the computer's built in microphone, the microphone monitoring level reacts to noise, and when i mute the microphone, it mutes everything.

Does the green check mark not mean that i am actually using the line-in?If it matters, i am running windows 7 ultimate on a dell inspiron 1520 with an onboard sigmatel sound-card. I understand that most people have had numerous problems with dells with sigmatel cards, but 7 seems to have fixed those problems, so i think this is a problem with the recording devices menu. Also, it appears that my drivers are up to date. Does anyone have any suggestions on how i can set things up to record with line-in?

Error Messages - Msdsm Driver Incompatibility - Loss Of Restore Points

Sp2 won't install properly - black screens - cryptic error messages- msdsm driver incompatibility- loss of restore points. I tried to install the important update of vista sp2 on my hp dv7 64-bit computer. The latest windows update (service pack 2) gave me a warning that "msdsm" driver is incompatible with the service pack. It offered no solution or identification of what msdsm is.

I stupidly chose the option to continue the update installation anyway. After downloading the update and then attempting the required restart, the computer got through installation stage 1 of 3. Near the beginning of stage 2, the computer restarted, then moved to a black screen, with a changing one-line dos message seeming to scan files. It got up to a file number 3592 of ~75000 and would not go further, just kept flashing the same file name and number (with exclamation points!).

I finally held the power button in to shut down and manually restart. The system repair program began and eventually offered a system restore. I elected the system restore and it restored successfully. I checked to see what restore point it had restored to and noticed that all my restore points (except for the sp2 installation) had disappeared.

I also got an error message for norton internet security 2009 indicating that antivirus had shut down and it needed to run live update. Surprisingly it found 75mb of updates even though i had been fully updated prior to the sp2 installation. Thanks a lot microsoft for an unwanted "improvement" that causes far more problems than it solves. I recommend strongly that nobody install sp2 unless and until ms gets this straightened out.

Dell Inspiron 546 System Audio Problems

Windows 7 - system audio works sometimes and sometimes does not. Sound card question. Audio recording question. Speaker sound quality poor. I log on-the system sounds work fine. Media player works fine. Next time i log on-no system sounds. Everything is plugged in just fine, troubleshooter finds no problems, media player goes through all the steps and looks like it's working, still no sound. Dell recommended i download a fix for the via driver.

I did that, and it still has the same problem. I can shut down, log on again, and then the sound will work. Sometimes i have to shut down and log on twice in a row to get it to kick in. Can anyone point me in the right direction to fix this? I am working on a dell inspiron 546 with amd athlon ii x2 215 2. 70 ghz and 64 bit with 400 gb of ram. I have windows 7 installed but when i dug deeper into the service code for this machine found that at one point in time it had vista installed.

Could this be the same vista to windows 7 audio problem everyone else seems to be having? I bought this from staples new with windows 7 as the advertised operating system. I have been researching all of the forums and answers and am having trouble figuring out if i have a "sound card" or not.

I am not well versed with the terminology so, even though i can follow microsoft instructions to find the correct place to check and see, i do not understand what i see when i get there. It says: ati high definition audio device and via high definition audio. Does this mean i have a sound card or do i need to purchase one? If i buy a sound card will this fix my audio problem?

Even if i get my audio problem fixed, i have been disappointed in the sound quality of the speakers on this new, up-to-date system. My speakers on my old computer (which ran windows 98) were by far superior in sound quality. I don't understand why they sound so crappy and barely get loud and when you do turn them up they have a rattle to them.

I tried to plug my old speakers into my new computer but nothing happens. My new speakers have a plug and a usb. I don't know what the purpose is, why can't i use my old ones? Eventually i want to record my old lp's onto discs and need a great sound system. Any advice?

Dell Inspiron 580 64-bit Spontaneous Freezing

I have a dell inspiron 580, with an intel core i3 (3. 07ghz) with 8gb of ram. Im using windows 7 home premium with a 64-bit. I've noticed only the last few days (ive had the computer for a month or two) that at random moments (sometimes an hour of two after logging on, sometimes during start-up) it will freeze, and the mouse, and keyboard fail to work. At this point i have to turn the computer of manually. I have no idea what causes this and no idea how to fix it. I've used system restore (and chnged the power settings to 'performance' but it doesn't seem to be helping.

Dell Inspiron 1545 Problem With Integrated Webcam

I have a dell inspiron 1545 with an integrated webcam. It came with vista but i upgraded it to a windows 7 64 bit. The webcam used to work in the beginning. I don't know why but one day it stopped working and never worked anymore. I've looked all over the internet for ways and tried many ways and it still doesn't work. The device manager identifies it as "unknown device" and identifies it as a universal serial bus controller. I've tried uninstalling it and letting it detect it, but it still detects it as unknown device. I've also tried reinstalling the driver, the vista one since it doesn't have a windows 7 one.

What that did was uninstall the old one, and tried to install the new one (which is the same). But the thing is, installing it doesn't work. It'll try to install it, and then a message saying "an error occurred while installing the driver" or something like that and then it doesn't work. I ended up having to do system restore to get the driver back. I've tried many ways and still doesn't work. Even the usb cable way. I have been using a usb mouse. I even plugged in usb cables in all my usb ports and it didn't work. I tried not plugging in anything too and it doesn't work either. I can't even ask dell for help cause there is no support thing i can get. And, my drivers are all up to date. Can someone help me fix this problem?

Geforce 8300 Gs Graphics Card Failed On Dell Inspiron 530

I have a dell inspirion 530 with windows 7 ultimate installed. Recently the original graphics card failed (128 mb geforce 8300gs). As mentioned in that post i did cobble together an old fan onto that old graphics card which worked for quite a while. I also purchased a 512 mb ddr3 geforce 8400gs as a replacement had that ready if needed. My cobbled card finally went south again so i shut down and carefully installed that card (the new nvidea 512 mb geforce 8400 gs).

The first "post install" start-up showed the normal "starting windows" logo: the floating balls coming together as the pulsing windows logo - all in the normal high resolution. Then it all switched into low resolution and finally opened windows "as if in safe mode", appearing to be using only the standard vga graphics adaptor.

I opened the installation cd that came with the graphics card and read the installation manual. I then clicked autorun and installed everything that came up. Opted for the "clean install" and though everything took quite a long time, the installation appeared to proceed normally. I was then asked to restart to complete the installation, agreed, windows shut down and began to restart.

Everything on that boot-up appeared normal at first, i saw the dell logo, heard the first post "beep", boot screen showed "starting windows in 5 seconds, counted down, screen went black for a second (also as usual), then it started with dell logo again. This endless loop is all that happens; f8 has no effect at all so i can't even boot into safe mode now.

Install On Dell Inspiron 1564 With Ati Radeon 4330 Mobile Graphics Card

Windows 7 32 bit on dell inspiron 1564 (with ati radeon 4330 mobile graphics card). I have purchased a dell inspison 1564 laptop. My dealer tells me that the installed graphics card will only work with windows 7 64 bit edition. One key reason for purchasing this laptop was its graphics card. I own a windows 7 32 bit key. Shall i install it or would i need to buy a 64 bit key? Will installing the 32 bit version lessen the graphics experience on my system?

Inspiron 1720 & 1521 Driver Win7 64-bit

I have a dell inspiron 1720 and a dell inspiron 1521. Recently, i did fresh installs of windows 7 64-bit os to upgrade from vista. I am glad i did, but since installing windows 7, i am unable to disable the touchpad when an external mouse is connected to the pcs. When i open the mouse dialog box from the control panel, it doesn't show a tab for the touchpad.

I contacted dell support and after spending over 90 minutes with them through a chat session, they told me that there aren't any drivers available for these laptops for windows 7. This is driving my mom nuts since her cursor goes all over the place because she accidentally touches the touchpad. She uses an external mouse exclusively.

I tried the windows 7 64-bit touchpad driver (r230731) for the inspiron 1750. That made the dell touchpad tab appear on the mouse dialog box, but when i click on the external mouse setting link it takes me back to the main mouse dialog box so it doesn't work. Does anyone know of a touchpad driver that would work for inspiron 1720 and inspiron 1521 running windows 7 64-bit?

Bluetooth Headset Driver Issue

I was wondering if anyone could give me some advice. I can't seem to get my blue tooth headset to work with windows 7. It tells me i need to get the drivers, but when i try windows update it says i'm current and the manufacturers website tells me the generic blue tooth drivers from microsoft should work. The blue tooth module is working properly and the head set works with my other vista computers, so i'm at a loss for ideas.

I have also tried installing drivers from broadcom having read similar problems being fixed by such actions, but the head set still does not work. The head set connects and shows up under devices, but has the troubleshooting icon. I think thats about all i can remember at this time, any help or ideas on how to fix this problem would be much appreciated.

Bluetooth Driver Causes Bluescreen Of Death

Recently i loaded the widcomm bluetooth driver. I also loaded blackberry desktop software. A few days since my toshiba laptop started to experience the bsod. In fact it started to do all sorts of weird crashing. I used system restore to take me to a point before those programs were installed and since then everything seems to be operating ok (for a day at least). Before i used system restore for about two days the laptop would last at bst a minute or two before crashing. Anyone else experience anything similar? Is this a known issue with bluetooth?
