Sounds like you need to re-load the device drivers for the display and modem. Dell maintains a very good library in their download secton for all the models that they made. Then use device manager to re-load the driver..

Well,if you don't want to buy a software to erase it,then you should have to reinstall your operating system,delete all partition,and INSTALL AN ANTIVIRUS
try AVG antivirus,it's FREE and easy to update,don't want to buy something don't you?
P.S it's hard to restore a computer which is already infected without reinstalling the operating system

No graphics or firefox just reloaded windows xp


It seems that you have just reinstalled the windows xp on your system. Then there are chances that there is no driver in your laptop and other software like firefox. All you need to do is to install all these software and drivers.For drivers you may have the CD with you from dell. And for firefox you can download it from the internet very easily.

I have a Dell Inspiron B130 computer and a Dell Photo AIO printer 966. Recently I could not get my computer to print on the printer. It had worked up to this point. I uninstalled the printer driver and...


First check the "Device Manager", for any USB Driver "errors".
There are 3 USB ports for your Laptop, check all the ports.
If you are using XP on your laptop, is your service packs up to date? For USB 2.0 port to function properly you got have to update a least Service Pack 2 for Win XP.

1. Have you check your USB port? Just plug in any USB devices eg. Flash drive, external HDD... and see whether the port detect the USB devices.

2. Is the USB cable for the Printer faulty? Try a new USB cable.

Hope it helps.

Lap top dell inspiron 6400, cant get into windows,


Have you tried doing a winXP repair:

XP repair
When you boot with the Dell Win XP install CD-ROM, it loads a minimal operating system, similar to DOS, but compatible with Win XP. At the first screen you select install Win XP (not Recovery Console) and at the next screen it will find that you already have Win XP and offer to attempt a repair. This repair should not touch your Applications or data; it just reinstalls the Windows files. This is great because when it works you don't need to reinstall all your software.

If the repair does not fix it :

If you have documents you need,you would have to set the hard drive in an enclosure and copy the files over. Then you can run the Dell recovery disk . This will set it up as when it came from Dell.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

LAN CARD ADAPTOR IS MISSING AFTER FORMATING TO XP PRO


Not sure I understand you what you mean. Let me recap:
1) Your LAN adaptor was working before you reloaded Windows XP Pro.
2) Now it’s not showing up in “Device Manager”.
If this is the case, there must be some software driver missing. Make sure there are no other devices that have an error. Double check Dell’s website at www.support.dell.com and select "I'm looking for drivers and downloads". If you don't have the proper version of Adobe you will be prompted to install it. Once installed return to "drivers and downloads" and enter the "service tag", (serial number) of the laptop. Dell keeps a listing of drivers for every customer's computer they sell.

Thank You.
