Question about Dell Inspiron 1150 Notebook
I have a dell Inspiron 1150 laptop. I have recently installed Xindows XP pro on it and downloaded and installed the drivers from the dell website ( in the correct order supplied by dell )but i cannot install the modem driver ( Conexant D480 MDC V.92 Modem ), or the sigmatel sound driver (vSIGMATEL STAC 9750 AC97 )...both fail saying xxxx not found or sigmatel failed to install shut down restart and try again. USB ports do not work although the all check out correctly and state that they are working. If you plug a usb flash drive into them the drive powers up but the computer never loads it or sees it. This goes for printer connection, ipod anything. I have spent hours trying to sort this out. The BIOS ( A07 )which i recently updated is so minimal you cannot control anything in the PC all drivers seem to be the most upto date and win XP pro is running SP3 with all updates installed. I was wondering if it was an IRQ problem as there seems to be multiple items using the same IRQ 11 ( USBs,Texas Ins )
I had the same problem with a dell m1330. Dell did not provide the xp drivers. I used various programs to identify hardware and then try to hunt them down on the internet. I finally gave up and bought driver scanner from uniblue for $30. Solved all my problems. It also sounds like your chipset driver maybe the wrong one. Also you can download "PCWizard" it will tell you the details you need to know to find the correct drivers.
