Inspiron 1318 running XP driver problem?

When I try to highlight text so I can copy it, from a web page or a text input box on a form for instance, it will only works intermittently. I left-click with the cursor at the desired point but it will only highlight the text every 3rd to 6th time. I can delete the text by backspacing it but the highlight won't work. I am running XP and had to search all over for drivers that would work because Dell won't support XP on this machine, only Vista. Is this a graphics or mouse driver problem or what? HELP!

How do I post a message on my timeline on facebook and send it, I am using a tablet not a pc.


You might try COPY/PASTE:
CLIPBOARD
A virtual, temporary storage area. Information (in the form of text, files, graphics, sound or video) can be copied to the Clipboard from one program or location and pasted elsewhere. The Clipboard can only hold one block of information at a time. Whenever something is copied to the Clipboard, it replaces whatever was there before. There are many platforms which support the Clipboard function.

COPY TO CLIPBOARD
Point mouse cursor to beginning point in text to be copied. Press and hold the "ctrl" key on the keyboard and click mouse. Entire section of text will be highlighted in blue. [NOTE: If only a portion of what you wish to copy is highlighted, then move mouse cursor to end of text, press and hold the "shift" key and click mouse]. Right click mouse and select "copy" from the menu window that opens.

PASTING FROM CLIPBOARD
Open the window you wish to place the copy (e-mail, FB profile page--status box, etc), click where you wish to place copy, then right click and select "paste" from the menu window that opens. NOTE: Edit as you would normally typed text.

[shortcut paste: press and hold ctrl key and press letter "V"].

Can anybody help me finding the video graphics driver for my DELL laptop 1318 for windows XP installed on it


You can download the drivers from Dell WEB site, thesupport download page. Make sure you select your model desktop or laptop,better still, type in the Service Tag number, it is printed on the label on thebottom of the laptop and on the back or sides of a desktop. (If the Service Taglabel is missing then go into the BIOS setting and on one of the BIOS pages,the Service Tag number will be displayed). This will open the page where thespecific drivers for your model computer are located. Also make sure you selectthe Windows XP or Vista version of the drivers for your Windows operatingsystem.

I have a Dell Inspiron 1318. Blue screen that says BUGCODE_USB_DRIVER. I recently reformat my laptop and when i installed my drivers, it was successfully installed except the External USB driver.. Why is...


Blue screen problems are awful to try and cure.
Mostly what happens is the system runs out of virtual memory and crashes with a whole host of apparent reasons.
Check your RAM for errors and try running CHKDSK/F regularly in case of hard drive errors.
All I can suggest for the External USB driver is maybe it is to do with whatever you were plugging in at the time. As long as all of your drivers came from Dell's web site and are the latest versions, you should be alright.
