Have you got one live or windows defender?, if so check in the allowed menu to see if your roters ip address is being blocked, also check any other firewall or anti virus programmes.

Dell Inspiron 6400 doesn't boot past dell splash

The hard drive has failed, or windows 7 is not compatable with the laptop. Try installing vista, if this works! there is a problem with windows 7, no change! have the hardware checked for possible replacement.

How can I install drivers for dell inspiron 6400?


Click on the link at the bottom of the page to open Dell download page. Using the form on the Dell page, choose the OS (XP or Vista), the download links will be listed on the lower part of the Dell page.

Download one by one the drivers listed on the last part of the Dell page (audio, video etc.) by clicking the link for each driver.

Save the drivers into a folder, renaming them as audio, video etc. When you have finished downloading all drivers install them one by one onto the Inspiron 6400 by executing the files that you just finished downloading.

You may need to restart the computer after installing each driver.Ensure that the driver installation is complete before restarting.

Ensure that you are using an account with administrator privileges while installing the drivers. If using Vista you may need to click the right button of the mousepad on the installer file, and choose 'Run as Administrator' from the drop down menu.

Here the download page: Drivers & Downloads

Note: drivers for Windows 7 and Windows 64 OS are not available.

I have install win 7 for my dell inspiron 6400 laptop but no modem & no video controler

You need to go to Dell Support pages online and download the drivers for your laptop model, if they dont show a windows 7 driver then try the vista or xp one they list, should still work.

I tried your solutions to restore audio on my Dell Inspiron 6400 by running Microsoft updates and installing audio drivers from Dell but problem persists. Computer states ''IDT High Definition Audio Codec...

The solution at: should have worked, namely the part to access and select the "audio" drivers for your version of Windows (XP? Vista? 7?) and download/install them.

DEll Inspiron 6400 will not recognize a wireless connection or ethernet cable connection. It did work before we moved but now the computer will not detect connectivity.

Before your move did you tell your provider? as if you moved and your broadband is not activated at new address thats the problem!
