Question about Dell Inspiron 9400 Notebook

1 Answer

Firewire Hi Fixya Expert, I stumbled over your site while looling for info about my Dell Inspiron 9400/E1705. As I can't get any help from Dell or related forums I thought I might try you. My question is as follows. Is there a way ofdisabeling the Ricoh firewire driver so that I can insert an expresscard with 6pin firewire ports directly into PCI-E bus and the system recognising the Texas Instruments drivers. If this is possible at all it should not have any negative influence on any other parts of the computer. The reason for my question is that I am involvered in music and recording and the defacto firewire chipset is aTI and the Richo is not built for audio interfaces. It would be nice to hear from you. Fedon

Hello,
If you add an extension card then the onboard card would automatically stops working and the computer will give priority to the card. However, you have to make sure that the CARD is compatible with your motherboard. There are times when extension cards have conflicts with other hardware parts.

What's the build of your computer? What the specs of the card?

Please provide me with more information when you get back to me.

Go to "Device Manager" and look if any yellow or red alerts are being displayed next to any devices. To access the "Device Manager" go to the 'Control Panel", "Administrative Tools", "Computer Management" and select "Device Manager" located in the left side column.
If there is an alert, double click on that device to determine the problem, i.e.… device not configured, cannot start this device, etc…
It sounds like all your software drivers got blown away or can’t load. If that’s the case, try running diagnostics. Press and hold the <Fn> key while powering the system on. This will initiate a diagnostic routine to check your hardware.

depending on your ISP, this may be a common problem. I have Verizon DSL and wireless is included on the modem. I recently expirenced a similar problem and i hardwired my laptop to my modem (you can do this with your router as well) via ethernet cable and this worked for me. once you get internet this way, unplug the cable and you should be connected wirelessly

SOURCE: laptop dell inspiron 1525 sound only when headphones connected

If you can here sound in headphones, but not through the speakers, most likely the phone jack switch is bad. The whole jack needs replacement.
Also, in some cases, it could be more then that, like Audio CODEC chip on motherboard is bad, but lets assume the best.

Charging light is flashing


There are two possible causes for this issue:
1) Your dell 9400 charger is malfunction
2) Your laptop dc power jack is loose or dead

Possible troubleshooting step:
1) Borrow a compatible dell charger to plug in your laptop, if it works without any issue, it means your dell inspiron 9400 adapter need to be replaced.

2) If the compatible dell 9400 charger won't work normally, the problem may lie in your dc power jack.

Hope this will help.

No sound speakers and headphone dell inspiron 9400


First, check that the audio is not muted, either via any hardware switch/button, or via software.

If not, I'd download and reinstall the sound card drivers for your notebook here:

http://www.dell.com/support/drivers/us/en/19/DriversHome/NeedProductSelection

you will need to select your model, or put in your service tag (on the bottom of your notebook) and then look for the driver under audio in the list.
from memory the first audio file should be the one you are after.
click on download, on the right hand side.

once downloaded, run and install software, then restart the computer.

Hope this info helps.

Dell 9400 battery problem


Hi bockobulb,

There's a good chance if the casing got damaged that the connector that connects the battery pack to the system was also damaged. First I'd suggest trying another compatible battery pack if you can get your hands on one. Bear in mind that there can be damage to the connector even if it's not visible.
