if it still doesnt work. you can flash the bios of your computer by installing the latest bios version from this link http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/download.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=gen&releaseid=R158849&SystemID=INSPIRONI6400/E1505&servicetag=&os=WW1&osl=en&deviceid=10430&devlib=0&typecnt=0&vercnt=9&catid=-1&impid=-1&formatcnt=1&libid=1&fileid=212350
if it still doesnt work, you can go to safe mode, by keep pressing f8 when comuter boots up or when you see the dell logo and check for the functionality of those buttons, if no go. adised to replace palmrest of computer, call tech support if its still not working to have the palmrest replaced.

How do I enable my wireless? I have no switch on the front nor the side.


Give this a shot:

The Wi-FI light turns on when wireless networking is enabled. To enable or disable wireless networking, press and hold the blue <Fn> key and press the <F2> key. The <Fn> key is located on the lower left hand side of the keyboard.

Dell Media center


go to Dell.com........go to drivers and downloads.......check to see if there is an update for the media center from them if there is download and install. When media starts up just reduce it so that you don't shut down in order to get any updates for media center. If Dell doesn't have one try Windows updates and see what updates they have for your system. If you have any questions just ask and I will answer as soon as I get it.


Thx

Update BIOS E1505/6400 fails


The link below will take you to Dell's support download site for the e1505 BIOS download.

http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/download.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=gen&releaseid=R158849&SystemID=INSPIRONI6400/E1505&servicetag=&os=WW1&osl=en&deviceid=10430&devlib=0&typecnt=0&vercnt=9&catid=-1&impid=-1&formatcnt=1&libid=1&fileid=212350

It is version A17. Download the file to your desktop and then double click on it to run it. A window will ask if you wish to upgrade the BIOS. Click yes. The system will shutdown, the BIOS will be flashed and Windows will restart.

The error that you mention above indicates that the file did not download properly for you before.

Good luck, and please let me know how this works out for you.

Dell inspiron 6400/E1505 audio drivers not working.


I can see how vista would screw up drivers through automatic updates. You could not be the 1st.
There are driver cleaners out there.

http://downloads.guru3d.com/download.php?det=745

Make sure you know what chipset you have, probably AC97 and use the driver cleaner to remove it.
Reboot and install the driver from dells web site.

Dell Inspiron E1505 Audio


Hi artifax,

I have a suggestion/solution for this that I need you to try. Here it is:

first, go to add or remove programs, look for Creative/SoundBlaster and Sigmatels listed there and uninstall every one of them. Then, go to Device manager and uninstall Creative/Soundblaster/Sigmatel under sound and game controllers. reboot the system.

now download and run this,
E1505/6400 BIOS
http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/download.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=gen&releaseid=R158849&SystemID=INSPIRONI6400/E1505&servicetag=&os=WW1&osl=en&deviceid=10430&devlib=0&typecnt=0&vercnt=9&catid=-1&impid=-1&formatcnt=1&libid=1&fileid=212350

then download and install this,
Sigmatel Audio Driver
http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/download.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=gen&releaseid=R171789&SystemID=INSPIRONI6400/E1505&servicetag=&os=WW1&osl=en&deviceid=8907&devlib=0&typecnt=0&vercnt=3&catid=-1&impid=-1&formatcnt=1&libid=3&fileid=235761

Do not install any Creative first, then let me know if this works.

I'll be waiting for your reply.
