Dell Inspiron 1520 won't shut down when printer connected.

I have a Dell Inspiron 1520 with XP Pro. When my brother mfc-6800 is connected, the screen stays on with the message ''Windows is shutting down'' never disappearing. Also, when it goes into sleep mode, it won't come back up. I have to manually hold the power button the power down.

I have a dell Inspiron 1520, it's older, it says


you haven't inadvertantly pressed the keyboard key that urns wireless off have you?
some older network cards are incompatible with the latest encryption so you could try setting the router up to use wep encryption 64bit instead

I recently formatted my system. When i connect my laptop for wifi connection its not getting connected even wifi key is not working. Which drivers should i install. My laptop model is inspiron N5010


You need to redownload the drivers for you inspiron N5010 Go to this link: http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/driverslist.aspx?c=us&cs=19&l=en&s=dhs&ServiceTag=&SystemID=INSPIRON_N5010&os=W764&osl=en&catid=&impid=

When you get there Then scroll down Then where you see "Operating System", select your operating system (ex: XP, Vista, or Windows 7). It will then show all the drivers for your operating system...scroll down until you see the network driver software and then download and reinstall the Dell Wireless 365 Bluetooth Module and download the Dell Wireless WLAN 1520 Half MiniCard Hopefully this will help...good luck.

My dell inspiron 1545 won't shut down went i click on the shut down icon it won't turn off .


Hold down the power button for 10 seconds. That will hard-shut the PC. Once that is done, fire it back up, and try again. Somethimes, windows will act goofy shutting down. Especially Vista when it is left on too long without shutting it down.

My screen on my dell inspiron 1520 has gone black


You've lost your desktop display.
The first thing I would do is to start the computer in safe mode. Once there, do a system restore back to the time that it worked.
I would also, just to be safe, do your disk management tasks like checking your hard drive for errors and running defrag.

Connexant Modem, Sigmatel Sound and USB fail to work or install


I had the same problem with a dell m1330. Dell did not provide the xp drivers. I used various programs to identify hardware and then try to hunt them down on the internet. I finally gave up and bought driver scanner from uniblue for $30. Solved all my problems. It also sounds like your chipset driver maybe the wrong one. Also you can download "PCWizard" it will tell you the details you need to know to find the correct drivers.

I have a dell inspiron 1520 that is 15 months old doesn't go on


Generally, if the AC adapter for the system's LED goes out when connected to the system, check the battery and see if it is holding a a charge (Press the button next to the LEDs on the battery see if all 5 light up)  If the battery still has power, then most likely there is a failure of the motherboard.
If you can, try another Dell D-series AC adapter and see if the same thing occurs.  If the system powers on, replace the AC adapter, if not it is a motherboard.
