Question about Dell Inspiron 8600 Notebook

1 Answer

Broadcom 440x 10/100 Integrated Controller driver will not load

Inspiron 8600 running Windows XP
Machine had a liquid spill on keyboard. Keyboard is damaged, one memory chip failed, main battery is discharged with flashing yellow "fatal error" lights and RTC battery is also dead.
Machine starts and runs fine on AC adapter, with the exception that the RJ-45 port is not functional.
Device Manager reports that the device cannot start.
Administrative Utilities reports Event ID 5008: invalid network address.
Dell Diagnostics reports error code 3B00.0788 -"EEPROM Checksum failure detected. Expected 009Fh received 006Fh.'
Drivers have been unistalled and re-installed from the Resource CD, Dell Support and Broadcom, with no effect.
Device is a Broadcom 440x 10/100 Integrated Controller.
I downloaded a DOS diagnostic program that will reprogram the EEPROM, but I do not have the "eeprom.bin" file I need.
Any advice would be appreciated.

Your resolution will most likely be a replacement of the motherboard. You can try flashing the BIOS and see if that resolves, but from your details it appears there is a hardware failure of the motherboard. Generally, you can find a motherboard for this model on Ebay for around $100

Dell DOES NOT provide all the downloads for their drivers..... Can anyone tell me where to get a driver download for a Dell Inspiron B130 "Network Controller"?


http://download.cnet.com/network-broadcom-440x-10/3000-2112_4-176199.html http://download.cnet.com/network-broadcom-broadcom-bcm2045/3000-2108_4-177233.html http://download.cnet.com/network-sis-900-pci/3000-2112_4-109103.html if these packages are not the right http://download.cnet.com/2000-20_4.html on the home page you should see a search tab just type in what you are looking for eg: motherboard name you might have to try a few times to get it right also you might try slimdrivers Rather doing a driver hunt which can take hours http://download.cnet.com/slimdrivers-free/3000-18513_4-75279940.html Windows XP/Vista/7/8
it might take some time being a freeware driver solution Note: it will find all of your outdated drivers
This will automatically search for and find the correct driver you will have to update every driver individually once you update you might be asked whether you want to restart or make a system restore point.

Click no to both of these then continue updating each driver free then restart once all of the drivers have been updated.

Broadcom 440x driver won't load


if you are getting a broadcom failure of the motherboard after a chapagne spill on the system, there is a good likelyhood that the controller chip for the motherboard is damaged.

If the system is POSTING and booting normally aside from the Network adapter, I'd try using a PCMCIA or USB NIC to replace the onboard NIC (Disable on-board in BIOS) If the system is manefesting other errors, then a replacement of the motherboard would be warranted

Broadcom 440x integrated controller drive will not load


...Others may DISAGREE with this repair, but I have done this on countless laptops with a SPILL...
This is a ..(LAST RESORT) fix...
remove the KEYBOARD, rinse THOROUGHLY under gaucet, while briskly wiping key surface with 2" paint brush... Shake dry. wrap keyboard in a BIG BEACH TOWEL, place it in SPIN DRYER, set for SPIN CYCLE (only), and.... let 'er go... Then AIR DRY it overnite, reinstall.
... If MoBo wasn't also damaged by spill, this may be your answer !! Doug R.
