U can use rapidshare or megaupload to host the files for free! I have found all the drivers and all of them have worked for me but the wifi...I found a driver with that same name but it still doesn't work, could u post the link here. I also found two audio drivers with the name "R153908.exe" also from sigmatel. So I'll post the link to the one that works here... http://ftp.us.dell.com/audio/R153908.EXE

Hi i purchased a dell 1318 laptop from china suddenly i cont install xp it,s support only win7 while trying to install xp it will display the error message like this


Your laptop may have a SATA hard drive.
The problem is that XPinstallation CD does not have a SATA driver, unless you have a SATA drive on adisk etc. and can install the driver when XP asks for a hard drive driver then,XP cannot detect the hard disk and therefore won't install XP.The FIX.Go into the BIOS anddisable the SATA drive (enable IDE emulation), this will make XP think it is aIDE/PATA hard disk. Then you can install XP normally. When Windows hasbeen installed then install all the device drivers (including the SATA driver),then shut down and boot up and got into the BIOS and enable the SATA drive.

Sound Card Driver for Dell Inspiron 1318 in Windows XP


Sorry for the typo, it was suppose to be Dell WEB site

You can download the drivers from Dell WEB site, the support download page. Make sure you select your model laptop, better still type in the Service Tag number, it is printed on the label on the bottom of the laptop. Also make sure you select the Windows Vista version of the driver for your Windows operating system.
