Question about Dell Inspiron 1501 Notebook

2 Answers

Formatted and downloaded all the drivers graphics not recognized

I formatted the pc, and downloaded all the drivers on the dell diver support page (Except the Applications, & CD/DVD stuff). The graphics card is not recognized. Usually, on other computers after installing the graphics drivers it looks great, not on this one. (Also, on the communication drivers I installed one and the rest said that I had another version installed, so which one is the correct one?)Also, my fn keys don't work. Help!!

    Here is the link to where you video driver is located. It is ATI Radeon express 1150. Download the catalyst software and install.http://support.amd.com/us/gpudownload/wi... As far as the communication drivers you would need to look at system information and see what version and manufacturer of chipset it has.

Hi,
Usually driver installation for branded PC's are much tedious than the assembled one. Download the drivers for your laptop model from Dell website and try to install in the following order as one driver is dependent on other drivers.
1. chipset
2. Microsoft UAA ( download it from here )[important step]
3. Audio driver
4. Graphics driver
5. Modem driver
6. Wireless device driver
7. utility drivers like function key drivers, synaptics mice driver, etc
Restarting your system in between each of these steps is mandatory.
I hope this is helpfull to you.

For the Fn keys to work, you would need to install "Dell Quickset" utility.
