Question about Dell Inspiron 6400 Notebook

1 Answer

Null modem serial cable

Hi,
I have a Dell Inspiron 6400 (called A) that I need to connect with a null modem serial cable to hardware point (B). The problem is that the null modem does not connect to A and the only connection point I have (as opposed to 4 USB ports) is the monitor port. What do I do?
Regards,
pacmanster

I dont have wireless network on my Dell inspiron 6400 laptop . Trouble shooting gives this message: driver not installed. Any solution?


Yes--if the computer is telling you that the wireless driver is not installed, the logical thing to do is install it. Go to support.dell.com and enter your service tag to find the driver for your operating system. var fctb_tool=null; function FCTB_Init_c2e8482a4d7d4ac6b0bc539f568ce661(t) { fctb_tool=t; start(fctb_tool); } var fctb_tool=null; function FCTB_Init_21a7e17eeb944cf29d4ae628d50dd6e2(t) { fctb_tool=t; start(fctb_tool); }

One narrow vertical red line constantly on screen of Inspiron 6400 running Windows 7.


Check on another external monitor, if the picture is ok there, eliminate a faulty graphics chip
If picture is still poor, Graphics chip is faulty

You are now left with the issue of it being the VGA cable from the mobo to the screen, or a faulty screen. It may be that you just need to have the connections checked, but also may point to a replacement screen or Cable being needed

I have reinstalled Windows xp on my Laptop 6400 inspiron and now I have no audio. I have check Control Panel and it says no audio device is installed. I have tried to download Sigmatel from the Dell...


i believe the audio device for this model is located on the modem bus.
if you install the modem driver first then the machine should display the "found new hardware" wizard. DONT USE THIS.
ignore the wizard and proceed with the sound driver install then reboot the machine.
that should work providing you have installed the drivers in the correct order

My laptop is del inspiron 6400,i have installed a new os ,windows xp. i have downloaded drivers but i have a problem in installing network drivers . iam given the information of uncompatability of hardware...


Hi,
Connect your laptop to the internet using Wifi (obviously network connection not available due to your problem) and update the drivers for the network adaptor. Can you use a free Wifi point somewhere to connect via Wifi to help with the driver issue?
There will be a yellow exclamation mark next the network adaptor problem in the WINXP System Properties. To get here right click on My Computer, then select Properties, then Hardware, then Device Manager. Find the offending network card problem, double click the device, Select Driver, then Update Driver. Let WINXP find the driver from the internet.
Alternatively, check the driver you downloaded from the Dell support webpage. Are you sure it was the correct driver for WINXP for the same model of network card fitted to your Dell 6400? A message about incompatible hardware means you are trying to use drivers on hardware which is not compatible with that driver. That is a good sign that you dont have the right drivers.
Go to Dell here: http://support.dell.com/support/ and select Drivers and Downloads.
Try this link here:

Ask me for more help.

There is NO built in microphone with this laptop. You will need to purchase an external microphone and plug it into the mic in socket.
