Question about Dell Inspiron 6400 Notebook

1 Answer

Hello, Whenever I boot up my machine I get an error message saying new hardware found - base system device. It then doesn't find any software to instal and goes away after a few clicks. However, I have found that some USB pen drives and other pieces of hardware I attach via the USB are not being recognised. Any help would be appreciated. I'm using a Dell Inspiron 6400 with XP SP2. Many thanks. Simon Alpren

Hello Dear,

I would suggest to use the Chipset Drivers CD to install all the drivers. I hope you would be having the CD which comes with the Laptop.

WIth regards

Hello, ive just bought a brand new motherboard (GS7610 ULTRA) and i have installed it into my case with all my components and when i go to start my computer up, it goes pasted the boot menu and then i get...


Are you trying to install this OS (Operating System) , or is it already installed on a hard drive?
If you are installing it, make sure you change the boot order to the optical drive (DVD drive). If it's already installed, was it installed with an OEM disk? If yes, then you might need a new Windows XP disc. This is because, when using an OEM disc, if you change the hard drive or motherboard, it doesn't really work.

I have an Acer Aspire One A0751h netbook and the webcam seems to have been completely uninstalled. Can't find it under imaging devices in device manager, nothing. I've tried downloading the driver and app...


I had the same problem twice. On mine the camera tends to come physically disconnected. That's why it doesn't even show up. Take out the top screws on your screen enclosure (even while the computer is on) and gently pop open the frame to reveal the webcam. See if the connector is not fully plugged in. Once plugged in, the operating system will automatically detect new hardware and find the right driver to install it. If it doesn't install right, or is mixed up with other hardware, just delete those devices in the device manager and restart. Then they might install in the right way again.

I have acer aspire laptop 5738 .i installed driver for blutooth but still i am not able to connect it . it is giving me error saying bluetooth device not found . please help me out.


Hi

Here are the solutions :

Restart your computer and press F8 when boot up and choose safe mode, then enter. Restart again and run on normal mode. If your bluetooth is working before, safe mode will fix the error on the drivers because of faulty installed driver or software or drivers conflict with multiple same drivers installed.

If you just new installed the driver, the bluetooth driver is not compatible with the operating system. Try to go to device manage, right click and uninstall the driver and install again. Or just update your driver whenever you install the bluetooth driver. Normally when installing softwares or drivers, you need internet connect when installing drivers to get updates if ever. restart your computer to take effect the hardware settings.

I hope it helps you.

Hello there:
First i would double check to make sure that the device is windows vista compatable and is compatable for your system next i would uninstall the device using device manager and than select view and select scan for hardware changes and let the computer reinstall the device and it will let you know that your device has been found and is installing than it will let you know that your device is installed and is ready to be used or it wil give you a error message if so than i would contact the manufacturer of the device and see what they say about the message ok?

Restart the Computer and keep tapping the F8 key for 5 to 7 seconds to display the Advanced Boot Option screen. On that screen, select "Last Known Good Configuration" option. Furthermore, if you've installed any new hardware then uninstall it.

Once the Computer is able to boot successfully, run "chkdsk /f /r" utility to detect and repair any disk errors.

Faulty hardware, a buggy system service, anti-virus software, and a corrupted NTFS volume can all generate this type of error.
