Dell Inspiron 1420 Serial Bus Drivers

Where can i download the serial bus drivers for my dell inspiron 1420? None of my usb ports are working, neither is my sd card port. When i look at the device manager, all of my drivers are corrupted. I cannot find my back up cd, so i need to download them all. I need: sda standard compliant sd host controller. Intel(r) ich8 family usb universal host controller - 2830, 2831, 2832, 2834, 2835

Intel(r) ich8 family usb2 enhanced host controller - 2836, 283a

I also don't know what i need to do to install them without the cd.

Dell Inspiron 1000 Sound & Video Drivers Windows 7

I installed windows 7 on my dell inspiron 1000 and cant find the sound or video drivers any where. Please help?

Windows 7 and vista don't need the drivers came with the computer (for windows xp). All you have to do is going to windows update by typing "windows update" in the search box of the start menu and let the computer search for needed updates. These updates include video and sound drivers for your laptop.

Dell Inspiron 1100 Network Ethernet Wireless Drivers Issue

Dell inspiron 1100 network ethernet wireless drivers. Can't connect to internet via ethernet or wireless card? I've installed xp home on it (original coa etc). All is well i've been able to install graphics sound etc by downloading the drivers on my desk top from Putting them on disk and pen drive , plugging them in and the files self extract themselves then install. I've been to dell and downloaded other things for 'ethernet controller' 'network controller' and to 3com for their 'office connect' wireless 11g pc card drivers. I've downloaded them and transferred them to the laptop via pen drive, they all show up as xxxx.exe files but will not open as they all have the same icon which looks like blue square with white inside. They are self extractor files which should open themselves. But they don't. I even d/loaded winzip to desktop, transferred to pen drive then copied it to laptop. Even this won't install as it shows up the same blue square with white inside.

Overclock - Ratio Between Fsb Bus Speed And Memory Bus Speed

I have read through some of the tutorials here and i think i have a decent understanding about how to go about this. However i have already ran into my first question. I am using a evga nforce 680i board. If i understand what i have read i should set my fsb – memory clock mode to unlinked so i don't have to worry about ratio between the fsb bus speed and the memory bus speed. Is that correct?

I went ahead and tried it and noticed the timings have changed when i viewed them using cpu-z. Unlinked:
Dram freq: 266. 7
Fsb dram: 1:1
Cl: 4. 0
Trcd: 4
Trp: 4
Tras: 12
Trc: 16
Cr: 1t

Before unlink (auto):
Dram freq: 400
Fsb dram: 2:3
Cl: 5. 0
Trcd: 5
Trp: 5
Tras: 18
Trc: 23
Cr: 2t

Should i go back into the bios and change the unlinked settings to match the auto settings? At this point i am not trying to overclock the memory, i just haven't been able to figure out if the memory is underclocked at the current unlinked settings.system stats:
Intel core duo e6600 conroe
Evga nforce 680i sli
Mushkin pc2-6400 (400mhz)

Compaq Presario Sr 1420 Uk Memory Upgrade

I'm buying an extra 1gb of ram to add onto my current 512mb but i've met some very tricky problems, since my current 512mb is a pc3200 ddr400 cl3 made by hynix and the recommended ram from both crucial and kingston for my compaq presario sr 1420 uk is a differing pc2700 ddr333 cl2. 5 model. Should i go with the recommendations of the so-called "professionals" and mix different latencies and speeds, or should i simply buy 1gb of matching pc3200 ddr400 cl3 memory ? The problem is i donít know what will happen in each scenario: will my old ddr400 cl3 speed up to ddr333 cl2. 5 if i choose to go with crucialís recommendations to match the new memory (vice/versa) or will both simply fail to work?

Or should i play it safe and buy memory of matching specifications knowing that it should work, but loosing the potential to fully upgrade to faster memory in the future, since if i replace memory in the future, one will still be a cl3 whereas if i buy a cl2. 5 now, when i upgrade memory in the future both will be at cl2. 5 ?

Is there a faster combination out of the two or will the ddr400 cl3 and the ddr333 cl2. 5 perform equally as well in the end? Also, should i be concerned with the different pcxxxx figures ? All iíve heard is that it refers to the motherboards clock speed but i still haven't a clue about how that will affect the memory that i should buy. My friend told me something about dual-channel memory so does that apply to me too? Which do you think i should buy?

Dell Dimension E521 Or Dell Inspiron 531

I have both of these systems and want to choose one to keep and one to sell. The parts i will be putting in either to upgrade either are the following:

Amd x2 5600+
Evga 7600gt pci-e 256mb ddr3
2gb pc2-6400
2x 250gb wd sata hd's

Both systems have a 300wt psu, but the 531 allows for a hsf aftermarket to be added, while the e521 has this hsf built into the case type thing. If you were going to choose one system to keep and one tell sell, what would you do?

Successor Pci Bus

So, there's this new technology called the "accelerated hub architecture" which connects the gmch (graphics and memory controller hub) with the ich (i/o controller hub) via an internal bus that offers double the bandwidth of the pci bus, 266mb/s to be precise. Now, my question is: what is the name of this internal bus?

Dell Inspiron 15 Or 15 R ?

I really like dell inspiron 15 laptop, because it has the best user reviews (4. 5 star). However, the dell salesman told me that it's discontinued and he asked me to get inspiron 15r instead. I know it's a sales pitch because 15r is more expensive. However, it's rating is only 4 star (as compared to the 4. 5 star rating of 15). I called dell to confirm that inspiron 15 is not discontinued. However, this salesman said that 15r's processor is newer than 15's (if i can trust this one)!

If you have knowledge about the processor's of either laptop model, would you share you opinion? In summary, inspiron 15 has the best user reviews but maybe an older processor, while inspiron 15r has lower user rating but maybe newer processor.

Asus A7m266-d Bus Speed Setting

I'm running an asus a7m266-d motherboard, which has a pretty friendly bios (2mb flash rom, award bios, trend® chipaway virus (tcav), pnp, dmi2. 0, sm bios 2. 3).

The fsb is adjustable via 4 dip switches on the mainboard. These have 6 settings which force you to operate at specific fsb ranging from 100mhz to 133 mhz. Another setting bypasses the dip switch altogether, and allows you to adjust the fsb in 1mhz increments. From what i understand, there is also 16 jumper settings for core voltages, as well as 3 for ram voltages. I have never done any ocing, so i'm a newbie at adjusting any of this. My problem is that i am running a board which is supposed to have 266mhz fsb for the cpu. I am running amd athlon mp 2400+ cpus which also have a fsb of 266mhz, and despite my efforts, i can't seem to run this board with a fsb setting above 133mhz. Whenever i try to put the dip switch in the bypass mode, and set the fsb manually, if i go above 133mhz, when i save the changes and quit, the screen goes blank and doesn't come back on. When i reboot, it boots directly into bios, and highlights my cpu settings (which also have a 2000mhz and 1500mhz setting, and a manual setting which allows you to adjust the fsb) and sets it to 1500mhz, saying that incorrect settings were used. The 2400+ is a 2 ghz processor. I am not sure if i'm missing a jumper that is required in conjunction with the dip switch bypass setting to adjust the fsb manually. Or if i need to adjust the voltage of the core (which i wouldn't think is a problem. But again, i don't know anything about ocing, or anything involved with it) or what. Does anyone know enough about this board to lend a hand?

Dell Inspiron 7000 Problem

I have an old dell laptop (inspiron 7000) that doesn't turn on anymore. Not that i really care since i got a new one anyways, but still, it was a nice machine. A electric guy came over and said it was because of my battery. For a while my battery was completely dead and i just left it in there. So this guy told me that my dead battery somehow short-circuited my power supply, therefore making my laptop "unbootable". So i have two questions:

1) is there anyway to fix my old laptop?

2) my current laptop has a dead battery in it and is it okay to leave it in it all the time?

How To Unlock A Dell Inspiron Laptop ?

How can i unlock a dell inspiron laptop? I tried f8 and safe mode but i brought me back to putting a password?


Which system do you use?

On windows xp, try this:

Boot computer and press ctrl+alt+delete twice when you see windows welcome screen / login screen. It'll show classic login box. Now type "administrator" (without quotes) in username field and leave password field blank, press enter and you should be able to login windows. Now you can reset your account password from "control panel -> user accounts". If that doesn't or you use windows 7 or vista, try this:

1. Enter a computer that can link to internet. Download windows password recovery tool 3. 0 and install the software on that computer. 2. Run the software and create windows password reset disk by follow the instructions. 3. Eject the created cd/dvd and insert it into the locked computer. 4. Reboot the locked computer (it's necessary for you to change your locked computer's bios setting to make it boot from cd drive) and then follow the instructions to reset your password. 5. Now login windows and set a new password.

Dell Inspiron 530 Freezes

A friend gave me a dell inspiron 530 and am running a new install windows xp. The computer keeps freezing randomly. It will run fine for a minute and then freezes but more like a hiccup then a freeze it gets stuck and with some serious lag where you can't do anything. But you can wait it out for a minute and it will run again for a little bit and then freeze again. Sometimes to the point where i have to power down and restart. Wiped out xp and put ubuntu i don't have any desire to run windows. Haven't ran it in ten years not going to start now. A little different but same problems that windows had. Ubuntu seems like it tries to fight the freeze, weird. So here's what i did:

It has a sata 1tb hard drive, ran numerous tests on it. All came back negative. 2gb of ram numerous tests on it all good there too. 512 nvidia pci/express ran tests on it( kind of like the ram test) real extensive everything checks out. Jumped the bios to reset it, checked for bios updates. Replaces the cables on the inside. Sata cables, check voltage on power supply. Checked battery every things tip top. Then i thought what the *** i'll completely clean the whole computer, maybe its some dust somewhere, stripped it all apart like your field cleaning your gun. New thermal compound cleaned fans, it looks brand new again. So then i started running tests on the processor speed test and stuff like that to get it real hot everyone always says "oh yup your computers getting too hot thats the problem" nope it ain't. So between fighting the stupid freezing and hiccups and crap like that, i manage to run every test and do everything i can think of to fix it. I'm thinking that maybe the whole motherboard is shot. But where, cause i would really like to know. And is there a extensive motherboard testing program out there, everything i see has to run through windows and most of the utility's i am running to test my cpu are of a live cd or a bootable cd or thumb drive. And thats crazy to cause i can run the utility cds and knoppix cd no problem with no hiccups or nothing. So then i think maybe it is the hard drive but can a hard drive come back with no errors but the read head is the one with the error?

Dell Inspiron 1440 Problems

I have a dell inspiron 1440, os windows 7. I tried to turn it on today and i got the "launch startup repair" or "start windows normally", neither option got me anywhere. All i can do is the following:

A) start windows normally. Which will show me the black screen with the windows logo and says "starting windows". If i leave it and do nothing, i go back to the "launch startup repair" or "start windows normally" black screen and the cycle can be started over. (And over and over). B) do the "launch startup repair". This brings me to a gradated royal/light blue screen with a light white wispy design in the background, a small green branch with leaves and a white bird. The cursor appears, along with a blue circle (showing me that i'm waiting for the next thing to happen), eventually the circle disappears. And then nothing happens. No repair, no popup windows showing any activity = just a blue birdy wispy screen of nothingness. I have no idea what to do. I have a dell drivers and utilities disc and a dell operating system re-installation dvd (win 7 home premium 64-bit).
