Question about Dell Inspiron B130 Notebook

1 Answer

Game Freezes up CPU

I have a Dell Inspiron B130 with Windows XP. Everytime I play a 3D game called Audition it randomy freezes and says my video/display driver stopped working. I was wondering if you knew of a driver download that I was unaware of because this is very frustrating!

Thanks

Your video card cannot support the graphics that game is trying to run. Try setting the graphics on the game's menu to a lower resolution or get a higher powered video card.

Can't find a download for a network controller for Dell Inspiron B130


Step 1:
Rather doing a driver hunt which can take hours http://download.cnet.com/slimdrivers-free/3000-18513_4-75279940.html Windows XP/Vista/7/8
it might take some time being a freeware driver solution Note: it will find all of your outdated drivers
This will automatically search for and find the correct driver you will have to update every driver individually once you update you might be asked whether you want to restart or make a system restore point.

Click no to both of these then continue updating each driver free then restart once all of the drivers have been updated.

Dont get sound to my inspiron b130, after fresh install of windows xp. how do i solve the problem??


Without further details its a little tricky to diagnose.

In my opinion, it its most likely due to a driver not installed with the XP version you just put on.

Dell have a great online database of drivers and update packs you can use when fresh installing a new OS.


Try here:

http://search.dell.com/results.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=gen&cat=sup&k=inspiron+b130+drivers&rpp=12&p=1&rf=all&nk=f&sort=K&ira=False&~srd=False&ipsys=False&advsrch=False&~ck=related

Of course, if you've installed a aftermarket sound card, check out the manufacturers website for a compatible driver.

Make sure you're downloading the driver for hte right version of XP (service pack 1,2 & 32bit / 64bit) to ensure compatibility.

Good Luck!

VGA Problem


This sounds like a driver or software issue. Check Dell's support site for any projector related drivers or software, and also check the projector manufacturer's site for drivers or software. You might also look for any Windows media player updates.

Video/sound problem


When you say Reboot, I assume you mean re-install Windows XP. Many issues can occur if you do not install the drivers properly after installing Windows. The proper order is as Follows:

Notebook System Software
Chipset Utility
Video Driver
Audio Driver
Network Driver
Wireless Driver
Touchpad Driver

Also after installing Windows and the drivers, you'll need to go to Java.com and install Java, then adobe.com and install the latest Flash and Shockwave Players.

It is also recommended that you have the latest BIOS flash of the system. The current bios version is A09
