Question about Dell PC Laptops

Dell Inspiron 1100

I have a Dell Inspiron that had a horrible trojan virus and had been going to forums for 4 months trying to fix it so I decided I'd just use the disks and wipe it clean and start over.
Now, the problem is that I can't get the Internet\network or audio drivers to install. I have tried disabling my Norton and everything else possible but that doesn't work. It says they are working but they aren't. Anyone have any ideas? I's sure appreciate any help. I have done most of the usual disabling, etc but am not an advanced user so I am up against the wall on this one.
Thanks for your consideration,
Kate

Normally this occurs because the drivers were not installed in the correct order.

Notebook System Software
Chipset Utility
Video Driver
Audio Driver
Network Driver
Wireless Driver
Touchpad driver
Quickset utility

Make sure you have internet connectivity, then install Norton

Hi vincent172...
I think you have a virus,worm,trojan,etc on your computer.
Go to the following website and download,install and run the FREE Microsoft Safety Scanner.
It will remove the virus,trojan,worm,etc from your computer.
It may take quite a while to finish, it all depends on the size of your hard drive.
Once the Microsoft Safety Scanner is completed running, it should have removed the virus,trojan,worm,etc. from you computer, but if it didn't remove the virus,trojan,worm,etc from your computer then it will give you an option to connect (real time) with a Microsoft professional (FREE) and he will take over control of your computer (with you permission) and finish the removal process.
Please take time to rate me thumbs up

If your laptop has warranty in it then you need to check these information
http://www.dell.com/downloads/ap/services/indirect.pdf

If laptop is out of warranty then you can check with any local technician in your area.

Just a suggestion. If you plan to get another laptop in the future try read some article in forums and discussions about which best laptop can be used and with less issues.

Hope this helps.

My dell 1100 wont start lights flash, system shorted out through power cord, power cord was defective, and power and negative lines crossed


Separate the negative and positive lines of the power cord and make sure each cord is covered separately and then re-plug to power source supply.

I want to upgrade my inspiron 1100 processor


To be honest, the Inspiron 1100 is probably not worth the effort and cost to upgrade
The fast is proc is a 2.4 GHz Pentium 4 CPU, max ram 1GB of RAM,
You can find several dell portables below $500

Try booting into safemode (F8) with networking and download malwarebytes (malwarebytes.org) and install and run this program , it will usually find most everything, of course make sure you have a good AV rpogram too!!!!!

Dell Inspiron 1100 won't read 512 Meg ram.


I had the same problem. I tried several brands of memory unsuccessfully, though they all guaranteed that their products would work with my machine. Finally, my brother (who works in IT) recommended that I go through The Upgrade Place (http://www.theupgradeplace.com/). Great price - less than half of what Dell charges - and the memory worked immediately upon installation.

When I told them that I had a Dell Inspiron 1100 laptop, they said that my PC required proprietary memory (which is true). I paid with a credit card and received the part two days later.

Good luck,
