Question about Dell Vostro 1510 Laptop

1 Answer

I bought a vostro 1015 laptop. I could install XP SP3 and all related drivers successfully. but unfortunately, I couldn't find appropriate driver in dell support website for wireless lan, using service TAG . entering service tag, I ecountered with lots of w-lan drivers (6) and I downloaded and installed all of them (except one, which was corrupted , originally). but I couldn't get the right result (recognizing w-LAN to the laptop).what should I do now?

    thx for your guidance. but I forgot to say I tried also stopping by intel.com and checking automatically. I downloaded the suggested driver by intel. installing it, not got the right result and the problem (not recognizing the w-LAN) has been remained.
    I think the key is the corrupted driver (a 96 MB one which I cannot tell you exactly now,caz dell website is halted right now) and if you know somewhere else than dell.com for downloading the drivers, it would solve my disgusting problem!
    thx again
    bye

Hello,

Don't you just love that they offer 6 different drivers? As a technician I am constantly frustrated by this. Anyhow...

There is a piece of software called 'unknown devices' (see the link below). This software can often tell you what the device actually is so you can get the correct driver for it. If this doesn't work, go to intel.com, and click on support at the top of the page. Then click on 'automatically detect and update drivers and software'. If it's an intel card, this may detect it. If all else fails, call dell support, and they may be able to help.

Please let me know how you make out. I may be able to help some more.

Hope this helps!

Regards,

Joe

HELLO!PLAESE HELP ME.I HAVE dell vostro 1015 windows vista but i want to convert it into xp,the problem is whenever i try to install windows xp a blu screen appears saying that something about my bios


Are you using a full version retail or OEM copy of WIN XP to install? Or is it a recovery copy from another PC or laptop? You will need to use a full version disc to perform the retrofit. You will also need to download the WIN XP Drivers for your laptop from the Dell Site. You CANNOT "upgrade" install WIN XP over VISTA and keep your drivers, settings, files. Performing a WIN XP install will require a total wipe of your hard drive. Therefore you will have to save off all your personal files before you do this. Microsoft doesn't provide assistance for downgrade-type installations, so you must basically wipe your hard drive and then reload the OS.

After installing windows xp in dell vostro 1015 and when i try to install audio driver it displays messege "No Media Device is available for the driver". Can I get any help, I am so much tensed


Have you tried to install this one? If not, give it a try. Otherwise, I'm afraid I won't be able to help you any further, except advising you to try to reinstall the driver as administrator.
Hope you are able to sort your problems out soon.
