I think the reason it wont let you install original drivers because they are probably just for Vista OS. You can try going to dell's web site and see is there driver download for it or who ever manufacturer is of your web cam. When you ran upgrade advisor it would have told you that web cam probably would have not worked and would have told you where to go for the driver if available.

I have dell inspiron 1545 ultimate & window 7 it was before vista.Now blue tooth is not working please help me out.


Upgrading your laptop OS from Vista to Win 7, you have to reinstall your Bluetooth drivers for Win 7 OS(ie x86bit or x64bit) for the Bluetooth to function properly.

Dell Inspiron 1545 download @ http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/driverslist.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=gen&ServiceTag=&SystemID=INSPIRON1545&os=WLH&osl=en&catid=&impid=

Under "Network" -> Select your correct Bluetooth drivers versions for your OS Win 7 (i.e. x86bit or x64bit) to install.

Hope it helps.

Web cam of inspiron 1545 is not working with windows 7 what shall i do?


Go to www.dell.com and at the bottom of teh page select "Drivers & Downloads" under "Support".
Once in the support section select "Support for home users"
In the next page select laptops > Inspiron laptops > Inpsiron 1545
Then it will ask for an OS, select the windows 7 and when you find your driver it will give both 32 bit and 64 bit versions. This should fix your issue.

Dell insiprion 1545 audio driver for xp not installing. 1545 is designed for vista and am trying to load xp


Try installing the driver from the Dell WEB site.
You can download the drivers from Dell WEB site, thesupport download page. Make sure you select your model desktop or laptop,better still, type in the Service Tag number, it is printed on the label on thebottom of the laptop and on the back or sides of a desktop. (If the Service Taglabel is missing then go into the BIOS setting and on one of the BIOS pages,the Service Tag number will be displayed). This will open the page where thespecific drivers for your model computer are located. Also make sure you selectthe Windows XP or Vista version of the drivers for your Windows operatingsystem. Click on this link to download the drivers: - http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/index.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=gen

Need driver for my dell inspiron 1545 web cam in windows7


There is no Windows 7 driver available yet for your webcam from Dell but the Vista driver might work. Try downloading the driver from here http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/download.aspx?c=us&cs=19&l=en&s=dhs&releaseid=R198114&SystemID=INSPIRON1545&servicetag=&os=WLH&osl=en&deviceid=19297&devlib=0&typecnt=0&vercnt=1&catid=-1&impid=-1&formatcnt=1&libid=17&typeid=-1&dateid=-1&formatid=-1&fileid=273878

And then install the software. Before running it you can right-click on the icon and run the software in"Vista compatibility mode" under the properties tab. The driver should work on Windows 7. If not you will need to wait for an updated driver from Dell.

Hi there,

This can be very frusturating but you can go to Dell's website and download the software that controls the "hotkeys" and reinstall free. Click on applications, and download/run quickset program. See link below:

Dell inspiron 1545 laptop and the same webcam problem.


open your my computer, click on "c" the system will tell you the information is hidden, click on the link and open up the operating system and look in the drivers or there in C and se if you can find you web cam driver, when you find it you might have to force the opening of the driver to install, and once you do that plug your web cam in and see if the system see's it and installs the drivers for the cam, if you installed the driver origanally witht he web cam installed you will have to remove the web cam and unistall the driver and re install it and then plug the web cam back in, and that should help correct the problem.

Driver for webcam


If you haven't reinstalled vista then the web cam should be listed in the control panel under scanners and cameras. If vista has been reinstalled here is a link to the web cam driver
