How do I install XP on my Inspiron 1545 that is running Vista? I have the discs


Hello,

Go into BIOS and make sure you boot from disk cd/dvd rom

if you have another computer go to Dell and download all of the drivers for your computer(inspiron 1545) and put them on a USB flash drive (e.g - ethernet, sound, bios update, etc.)

IF you do not want to save any data boot from your XP cd.

The cd will load and it will ask you some questions "install xp" F8 agree. Then it will check for current operating systems. If you have a large hard drive larger than 100 gigs I would partition the hard drive into two or more smaller sections. For XP I would Recommend 40-60 gigs (40960 = 40 gigs - 1024*40). This way--if you have a problem with the OS in the future you can load the OS again without loosing your data as long as you put your data on the other partition (changing the paths on my computer, my pictures, my music, etc.). Then, once the OS is loaded you need to update the OS, get a free antivirus (Microsoft security essentials - put on flash drive), and install any programs you may have or want. Takes some time but this is how to do it if you do not have a clone. Also, check out CCleaner this fixes registry problems, clears cache and more to help your computer run faster. If you have any more question let me know.

I hope this helps!!!

I have dell inspiron 1545 ultimate & window 7 it was before vista.Now blue tooth is not working please help me out.


Upgrading your laptop OS from Vista to Win 7, you have to reinstall your Bluetooth drivers for Win 7 OS(ie x86bit or x64bit) for the Bluetooth to function properly.

Dell Inspiron 1545 download @ http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/driverslist.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=gen&ServiceTag=&SystemID=INSPIRON1545&os=WLH&osl=en&catid=&impid=

Under "Network" -> Select your correct Bluetooth drivers versions for your OS Win 7 (i.e. x86bit or x64bit) to install.

Hope it helps.

Dell XPS M1530 Vista originally installed - Fresh installed Win7 and now touch pad does not work - the right button works, and sometimes the left, but the touch pad does not. I've install the latest...


If you've reinstalled the drivers for the touchpad, the issue is likely the hardware- if in warranty, contact Dell tech support- if not, you may need to purchase the palmrest assembly and consult support.dell.com for the install instructions

My sound went of and it said no audio output device is installed


It seem like the drivers those you have are may not be updated or may be corrupted.
Download the latest drivers from the below website.
Then uninstall your old drivers from your laptop and reboot.
Then install the new audio drivers according to the Operating System that you are using (XP/ VISTA).
Again reboot your computer and it should work perfectly fine.

This is the website from where you can download the latest version of driver.
Hope this helps.

My Dell Inspiron 1545 shutt down by itself...


Not necessarily, there can be all kinds of reasons for OS corruption.
  1. Run the hardware diagnostics from the F12 1 time boot menu or hold the Fn Key while pressing the power button. See if you have any hardware failures. If so call tech support.
  2. Since it is prompting to reinstall the OS, you can Re-Image the system using CTRL+F11 and the Dell Splash Screen for windows XP, or off the F8 menu for Vista
