YOu can try system restore, think of the possible time where your computer was working properly without hussel then that will be your restoration point, or better try to back up your files and do tjhe factory image . Since this is a DELL computer pressing CTRL+F11 will do the factory default setting of your system that is why it's highly recomended to back-up files first before doing this.

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:
http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/driverslist.aspx?os=WW1&catid=5&dateid=-1&impid=-1&osl=EN&typeid=DRVR&formatid=-1&servicetag=&SystemID=INSPIRONI6400%2FE1505&hidos=WW1&hidlang=en&TabIndex=&scanSupported=False&scanConsent=False

Ask me for more help.
Cheers,

Cant connect to internet


That will be the default gateway address.
Compare the settings there, my money is on that fixing it. Otherwise it will be the DNS server Main and Secondary IP addresses.
Do you use DHCP or fixed IP's?

Inspiron 6400 detects networks but does not connect to internet


Make sure you are connecting to your own internet connection through your wireless router and not on your neighbor's.....limited connectivity means you are out of reach or signal is blocked....

Wireless internet dell inspiron 6400


Things you can do to try and improve the connectivity are:
1. Update the system BIOS to the latest version
2. Update the wireless driver to the latest version (Both are available at support.dell.com)
3. Try a different channel for wireless on your router (Most default to channel 6, so try 1 or 11)

Can't connect to internet through wireless


Go to a working computer (beg borrow or steal) and download the drivers for your model laptop from the DELL WEB site (suggest you insert your Service Tag to get the correct drivers for your model laptop), copy it to a CD or USB memory stick and then install them on your computer.
Don't forget to activate your XP license and also install SP3 (Service Pack 3 it's approx. 350Mb in size).
