Broadcom 440x driver won't load

Inspiron 8600 - Windows XP Home
Dell diagnostics reports error code 3B00:0788 EEPROM "checksum failure. Expected 009Fh received 006Fh" after champagne was spilled on keyboard.
I have a Broadcom DOS diagnostic program to reprogram the EEPROM but I do not have the file "eeprom.bin" to load.
Any suggestions?

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

My Dell Inspiron 530, works fine once its powered up, but it take three attempts for the computer to boot on. I have taken the following steps. Checked that all fans are operational, they are. I have...


OK, here is what dell says:

BIOS checksum failure. Possible motherboard failure.

Try re-seating your memory modules and see if the beep code disappears

Also, Try using the Dell Diagnostics which is located on a hidden diagnostic utility partition on your hard drive or on the Drivers and Utilities Cd that came with your computer.

  1. Ensure that the computer is connected to an electrical outlet that is known to be working properly.

  2. Turn on (or restart) your computer.

  3. When the DELL™ logo appears, press <F12> immediately. Select Boot to Utility Partition from the boot menu and press <Enter>.
Press any key to start the Dell Diagnostics from the diagnostics utility partition on your hard drive.

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


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

... If MoBo wasn't also damaged by spill, this may be your answer !! Doug R.
