Question about Dell Latitude D400 Notebook

1 Answer

My Dell Latitude D400 intermittently drops its IP address. Sometimes this happens in the middle of reading a page, but more often, it happens when clicking on a link to a subsequent article. It is siting beside another machine that uses the same wireless network and never has this problem. The wireless router is a Belkin draft N N1. It will usually restore if I click on the repair connection function, but sometimes I have to reboot.

Renew your ip address. The computer will automatically regenerate another one so that the two pc don't conflict.

You can can reset your IP address by :
1. Opening the Windows Command Prompt located in Start -> Accessories or
Start -> Run -> Type in either "cmd" or "cmd.exe" (without the quotes)
2. Type in "ipconfig /release" (without the quotes)
3. After releasing the IP, typie in "ipconfig /renew" (without the quotes)
If the instructions above doesn't work, you can set a manual IP address by :
1. Going to Network and Dial Up Connections in the Start -> Control Pannel
2. Going to your local area connection
3. Click "Properties"
4. Click "Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)"
5. Then again click "Properties"
6. Selecting the "Use the Following IP Address"
7. Entering an IP address available on your network

I have a dell latitude d400 laptop. i just restored it back to favtory settings. now it wont go past the start up screen


You may have a problem with a driver that is stalling it out or your restore had a problem. If you can get into safe mode you can try to run down the hardware that is working and what isn't you can check with the bootlog.txt (root of c) to see what failed to load. It is actually the one prior to the first failed to load that will be the error.

I'd make sure the restore dvd is clean (soft lint free cloth with no harsh cleaners) as that might have messed up the read on a driver files. Then re do the restore.

This isn't hardware the is strictly a annoying software problem. Usually drivers and sometimes a corrupt disk.

You have to be absolutely sure you are downloading the correct display drivers for your system. The dell installers are very picky.
There are 2 video drivers here is the link.

Will not show IP address


Chk for the default IP of the printer . It shud be in the manual. Open IE, and in the address bar put in the IP, this will take you to the printer web interface. Here you shud be able to change the IP.
