What update are you talking about... a windows update, Drivet Update or an Upgrade of OS...

If it is a automatic update try reatoring the system to a previous date by Start> Run... type Restore n Double Click the rstrui.exe ... follow simple steps it asks n restore n check if it works now... you can also update your Wireless drivers n then also to power cycle the wireless router by switching off everything then first switching on the Modem (The ISP provided one)... wait two minutes n then switching on the wireless unit n then after two minutes switching on the laptop

Dell Inspiron 6400 doesn't boot past dell splash


The hard drive has failed, or windows 7 is not compatable with the laptop. Try installing vista, if this works! there is a problem with windows 7, no change! have the hardware checked for possible replacement.

WiFi can't instlalling in my laptop(dell Inpiron N5010),


Driver for Windows 7 (32-bit and 64-Bit) are available.
As the laptop comes with 64-Bit version, these drivers are available at Dell Official Site.
Dell Inspiron WLAN (Wifi) Driver for Windows 7 32Bit are not available from Dell Official or Microsoft Update (online).
I came accross this issue and solved it by searching 32Bit Drivers for the WLAN hardware and found the drivers. Below is the link from Intel Official Support.
Intel WiFi Link 1000BGN Drivers
Download/ Install the drivers/ and Enjoy wireless internet connectivity!
From adaptor properties - Advanced, select AUTO for 802.11n Channel Width to experience 300Mbps downlink Data Rate.!!!

Hope it helps! Good Luck!

Dell inspiron 6400 touchpad scroll not working with window 7 ultimate


It may be that you have not got the updated driver for it. if you on dells support website you can find drivers for your dell.
heres a link to dell site you should try trackpaddriverurl
click the download button and install the driver, or you can perform a windows update that should find the right drivers.
i dont think dell offers windows 7 drivers for your machine but the vista ones should work fine. but if not go to synaptics website here and scroll down for the newest drivers for the trackpad (youd want the xp/vist/windows 7 32bit)

I tried your solutions to restore audio on my Dell Inspiron 6400 by running Microsoft updates and installing audio drivers from Dell but problem persists. Computer states ''IDT High Definition Audio Codec...


The solution at: http://www.fixya.com/ThreadView.aspx?prdid=484539 should have worked, namely the part to access http://support.dell.com and select the "audio" drivers for your version of Windows (XP? Vista? 7?) and download/install them.

Wireless card in E1505 Dell not finding networks in range


The 1390 WLAN Minicard may not be configured to communicate with your wireless router.
Check the wireless router settings, (check the wireless settings on your other computer) and configure the 1390 WLAN with the same settings eg. SSID, WEP/WAP encryption, etc.
Is MAC address filtering enabled on your wireless router, if so add the MAC address of the 1390 WLAN to the MAC address list in the wireless router.

Check the TCP/IP properties of the 1390 WLAN card the Internet protocol should not have a fixed IP address, set it to Obtain an IP address automatically including the DNS.

Use the Ipconfig command to see the IP configuration of the network cards.

Use the Ping command to see if you can communicate with wireless router.

Dell inspiron 6400/E1505 audio drivers not working.


I can see how vista would screw up drivers through automatic updates. You could not be the 1st.
There are driver cleaners out there.

Make sure you know what chipset you have, probably AC97 and use the driver cleaner to remove it.
Reboot and install the driver from dells web site.
