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 copy something to re-post in a google doc?


Using a PC you can highlight the text and press control C.
Or you can right click after selecting the text and select Copy from the menu.

Then Paste the text back into the box, by using Control V or right click the mouse and choose Paste.

Hi i purchased a dell 1318 laptop from china suddenly i cont install xp it,s support only win7 while trying to install xp it will display the error message like this


Your laptop may have a SATA hard drive.
The problem is that XPinstallation CD does not have a SATA driver, unless you have a SATA drive on adisk 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 anddisable the SATA drive (enable IDE emulation), this will make XP think it is aIDE/PATA hard disk. Then you can install XP normally. When Windows hasbeen 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.

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. Click on this link to download the drivers: - http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/index.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=gen

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.

Dell Inspiron 1318 Keyboard problem


If it is still under warranty just call Dell and have them send a replacement keyboard. If not, either try cleaning her laptop keyboard or just pick up a new one off some place like ebay for about $10.00 with free shipping.
