Hi axcel07,

So you just did a reinstall of Windows XP on a Dell Inspiron 8600 laptop. You can actually download the drivers for you laptop at this location: http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/driverslist.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=gen&ServiceTag=&SystemID=INS_PNT_P4M_8600&os=WW1&osl=en&catid=&impid=

Now about the items listed:

1.) Multimedia Audio Controller = SIGMATEL STAC 9750 AC97
2.) Network Controller = Broadcom 440x 10/100 Integrated Controller (wired)
3.) PCI Modem = check out the list since there is a lot of items listed
4.) Video Controller (VGA Compatible) = check out the list since there is a lot of items listed

One way to find out the correct driver is by checking the details of your computer at this link: https://support.dell.com/support/topics/global.aspx/support/my_systems_info/details?~ck=ln&~tab=2&c=us&l=en&lnki=0&s=gen just enter your service tag.

Otherwise, please contact Dell Technical Support so that they can give you the information you need and they can even guide you in reinstalling the drivers.

Hope this helps!

Peace! :)

How to turn on webcam in my dell inspiron 1525. but i have default cam driver installed in os. tell me the solution.


Is the webcam being recognized in Control Panel/Device Manager - under 'Imaging Devices'?
Have you tried reinstalling the webcam drivers/software you might have received with the laptop?
You can download the latest versions from the Inspiron 1525 from this link Drivers and Downloads

The Dell 'Webcam Manager' software is listed under 'Applications', and the drivers are listed under 'Input Device Drivers' (integrated webcam).
Select the appropriate OS version (i.e. Vista 32bit), download and install those two (drivers first)

Note: When you click the respective download links, don't use the Dell Download Manager!! It's known to cause various problems. Use the 'download in internet browser' option instead.

I can be able to play music but the sound doesn't me out of the build in speakers after formating the new Laptop inspiron 1420.Drivers are installed.


Hello,

it means you did not install the correct drivers for your laptop. I have experienced this before, but its was rectified when I installed the correct drivers.

Make sure the drivers installed is the exact drivers for for your operating system (Vista/XP).

Go to dell.com, look under the page, and select drivers & downloads under "Support".

On the next page click, "Select Model", choose "Laptops" Choose "Inspirion Laptops" then select your laptop model (1420), press confirm and proceed for the download.

Select your operating system (Win XP or Vista) scroll down and you would see "Audio". Select audio and proceed for the download.

Make sure you uninstall the old audio driver from your computer, before you install the new one.

To uninstall the older driver, click start menu, under search, type, "Device manager" and press enter.

From device manager, right click on audio and uninstall from there.

Take care.

Black Screen Dell 600 Laptop


Hi,
The display drivers maybe corrupt.

Boot the machine into safe mode. Right click on My Computer (XP) Computer (Vista) and select manage from the sub menu.
When the window pops up select Device Manager.
A device list will populate. When it has look down the list for Display Adapters. Click on the + icon next to Display Adapters to it expands. Right click on the display adapter and select uninstall.

Restart the computer and let it boot in normal mode.
If it boots in normal mode let it detect the Display and install the drivers for it.
I would be a good idea to update the display drivers via the Dell support website.

If it still won't display in normal mode please post back.

Good luck.

Hi I am Vortash It sounds like your graphics driver has become corrupt restore may be an option however it may be better to reinstall the graphic card drivers .. uninstall the monitor first from your Device manager screen by selecting ..Control Panel .. and then device manager if in vista
and if in xp control panel...system .. device manager .. click on the display and uninstall ... click on display adapter and uninstall .. turn off and reboot place whatever disk in the cd the installation wiz ask's for and let the system do the rest. follow the same proceadure and install the next device then reboot and see if that has cured your problem if not there may be the chance your set has had a knock and the LCD has been damaged ... hope this helps Regards Vortash

Dell Inspiron 1525 buzzing sound


As you mentioned that you have downgraded to windows xp, did you change the sata operations to ATA mode from AHCI mode in bios before installing XP? If you have done this then try and reinstall webcam driver and also the audio driver. If possible get into device manager to check if all drivers are working fine.

Please rate your comment if its helpful.
