The old driver, most likely, will not work. Did you do a Win 8 Hardware compatibility test prior to installing Win 8? Is that the only issue? What was the Dell's OS before the upgrade? Take a look at this: http://howto.cnet.com/8301-11310_39-57390888-285/check-your-hardware-for-windows-8-compatibility/

Copy and past the website I gave into the address bar on the top of the computer you are using right now. Download the drivers and save them onto a disk.Instal the drivers using the disk in the laptop. If you need the reinstall cd get it from this website also. You said you only need drives , not the windows also.

SOURCE: I installed windows 7 and now my function keys don't work

You need to install the drivers, windows does not recognize these additional buttons until the proper drivers are loaded. Depending on manufacturer windows 7 drivers may or may not be available. Microsoft did something smart with windows 7 by allowing you to use windows vista drivers in windows 7. So if there are no win 7 drivers just download and install the vista drivers. Good luck!

How to copy all driver installation software from my pc tower onto a 16gb usb drive and then plug usb into old laptop with new software


It doesn't work that way. The current driver software that you have installed will not work on another install. Your best bet is is to go Dell website and enter your service tag(serial number) of your computer and download drivers. http://www.dell.com/support/home/us/en/04?c=&l=&s=bsd?c=us

Mic not working since Windows 8 upgrade


Hi,
When you were on Windows 7/Vista and you clicked on the installer, then it checked the devices, did it say that the device is not gonna work? Did you check the report for programs that may not work?
Try going to the manufucator's website and downloading the latest drivers.If you have upgraded to Windows 8 from Xp, then many things might not work as expected.

Hope that this answers your question.

I have an HP Compaq tc4400 that I got from an old friend that had no use of it . but when I turn it on it says Non-system disk or disk error replace and strike any key when ready but I dont have a disk ....


It sounds like there's a problem with Windows (assume that's the operating system it used to have). I think you'll need to get a Windows install disk. Installing Windows is actually not that hard, and it sounds like you've got nothing to lose.

If you don't have access to a copy of Windows, why not try out Windows 8 - http://windows.microsoft.com/en-AU/windows-8/release-preview

I assume it'll only be free for a few more days as Windows 8 will be released in under a week now.

Hope that helps.

Cheers,
Derek.

Compaq Mini 700EL hdd not recognised


If you are installing Windows XP then -
The problem is that XP installation CD does not have a SATA driver, unless you have a SATA drive on a disk etc. and can install the driver when XP asks for a hard drive driver then, XP cannot detect the hard disk and therefore won't install XP. The FIX. Go into the BIOS and disable the SATA drive (enable IDE emulation), this will make XP think it is a IDE/PATA hard disk. Then you can install XP normally. When Windows has been installed then install all the device drivers (including the SATA driver), then shut down and boot up and got into the BIOS and enable the SATA drive.

I installed windows xp on a Dell XPS 400 and on a Dell Latitude D505, both are genuine copies of Windows Xp pro. I forgot to save the Drivers before installing the XP. So the ethernet ports don't work on...


Probably the previous download files you have downloaded are corrupted, do a check the downloaded files sizes from source & the downloaded to your PC/Notebook are the same sizes.

1. Download link @ Drivers & Downloads for Latitude D505

2. Dowload link @ Product Support for XPS/Inspiron XPS (Key in your "Service Tag" to locate the exact drivers for your model).

Hope it helps.

WHAT CAN USE TO REPLACE A MAXTOR 7Y250MO HARD DRIVE? IT IS IN A 6 1/2 YEAR OLD DELL DEMENSION XPS GEN 2 TOWER RUNNING WIN XP. THE OS CAN NO LONGER FIND THE DRIVE AND WILL NOT BOOT UP. I WOULD LIKE TO...


Hi,
The Dell Dimension XPS GEN2 has support for both, IDE and SATA standards. Your Maxtor is SATA drive, you can use any SATA drive as replacement. You mentioned that the OS no longer find the drive, make sure that you load SATA drivers at your Windows XP reinstallation, maybe your old drive is not defective only not recognized in the installation process. You can download the floppy image with required drivers here, see SATA drivers section. When you start Windows installation, at the Windows Setup Screen you should see, at the bottom of the screen, a message saying "Press F6 if you need to install a third party SCSI or RAID driver." At that point press the F6 button and when the next screen appears press S key to specify an additional device. Select the drivers from the provided list(to load all drivers from the disk, beacuse I don't know which is yours as I don't know the content of the disk, repeat steps to specify additional device), after drivers load your hard drive should be recognized and you can continue installing the Windows XP operating system. Ignore these steps if your hard was already tested and confirmed that is defective. Good luck!
If this is the solution for your problem, please rate my post, otherwise give us more details.

Dell xps m1330 dvd won't eject


Does windows pick up the drive? If so right clcik the drive and select eject. Apart from that if theres no pin hole you could try re-installing drivers. Go to device mangaer and right click the dvd drive select uninstall then reboot let it re-install itself and try ejecting again. If the normal button doesnt work though it may be a physical issue.
Let me know how it goes.
