I have a Dell XPS M1710 laptop that was originally Windows XP (maybe Media Center Edition, I'm not sure) and had Windows 7 Ultimate on it. I had to wipe the hard drive and I downgraded to Windows


Hello the driver can be downloaded here:

http://www.dell.com/support/drivers/us/en/04/Product/xps-m1710

Or here at nvidia:

http://www.nvidia.com/object/geforce_notebook_winxp_179.48_beta.html

Please check for other drivers missing in the device manager.
Check also for the right driver, because here is 2 different ones.

Try the nvidia page first, this should work for you.

Good luck

I have a dell xps that came with a wireless/bluetooth keyboard with mouse pad and i have another dell xps 420 that i'd like to use the wireless keyboard on...they are both dell xps's and both


Wireless/Bluetooth keyboards and mice can only be used with one device at a time it is like a bluetooth headset once it is paired with a phone it will 99.99% of the time only work with that phone and that phone only, Wireless keyboards and mice are setup on the same principal once they are paired up with 1 PC to use on another PC you have to remove the pairing. The worst case scenario is that the second PC's Wireless/Bluetooth has failed. I hope this helps.

I have Dell XPS 420 , with windows home server running for some time. I tried to insall/upgrade RAM from 3 gb to 6 gb. So, i found the right RAM (2x2GB) and removed the two old 512 mb from the slot and...


According the the dell specification you can only install up to 4gb, so I don't understand you saying that you were upgrading from 3gb to 6gb. Make sure that all the ram that is installed is of the same brand and speed (667 / 800 MHz Dual Channel Dual DDR2 SDRAM). The fact that it is saying no boot device also would suggest that it is possibly something wrong with your harddrive, whether it was corrupted or damaged while you were changing the RAM, if you have a spare harddrive try installing and booting from it. If that doesn't work it could be a motherboard issue, which the BIOS should be update, all the jumpers on the board should be checked etc. Its rather hard to diagnose a problem such as this, and the fact that after you installed the new RAM, even the old RAM would not work, suggests that you may have damaged something while messing around in the computer.

Change the volume in WMC doesn´t working...


If the remote control causes a visible change with the volume control display but no audible difference, there are only three possible fixes. 1.)Go to Windows "Start > Control Panel > Sounds > Advanced. Here you will find a set of several volume control slide bars each with a check box at the bottom for muting. Un-check any controls marked as muted and raise the volume to 50%. Exit Control Panel. 2.) Many P.C. speaker systems are self amplified and have their own volume controls which supercede anything you do through Windows. 3.)If the problem persists you most likely have a jack plugged into the wrong feed. Allways power OFF and ground yourself before fiddling with computer jacks.
