Question about Dell Inspiron 1501 Notebook

1 Answer

Driver or Hardware issue

Hi,
In my Inspiron 1501 Notebook, i have window vista ultimate as the OS. The issue is that whenever i insert any Memory Card inside the slot, previously it used to show that the device driver installation has failed, but off late it doesnt even recognizes the device. I have updated my Chipset drivers and have even checked the Device Manager, but there are no issues there even. Sometimes, even when i insert any Digicam via the USB, then also the Device Driver fails to Install. I guess there are some problems with external device attachment. Kindly help.

This could be a problem with the external attachment, but it sounds more like a compatiblilty issue with Vista. Check the compatibility of the devices and their drivers, and get back to me.

I have dell inspiron 1501. when i insert sd memory card my computer doesn't acknowledge it. can you help


Go to My Computer and right-clickie the icon. Drop down to Properties (the last one in the list) and you want the tab for Hardware.

Find the USBs listed in there. They should be close to the bottom. Delete them, or right-clickie and select Uninstall.

Reboot your computer and let it auto-detect the USB hubs again as it reboots. That should solve it - if it doesn't then you have a hardware issue.

Dell Inspiron 1525 buzzing sound


As you mentioned that you have downgraded to windows xp, did you change the sata operations to ATA mode from AHCI mode in bios before installing XP? If you have done this then try and reinstall webcam driver and also the audio driver. If possible get into device manager to check if all drivers are working fine.

Please rate your comment if its helpful.

To make sure that you will be able to download the correct driver of your laptop, go to support.dell.com,click driver and downloads, enter the service tag of your computer that is the 7 alpha numeric characters found on your laptop, or you can go to your bios press f2 when you see the dell logo and you will see there the system setup try to find your service tag, once you had enter it on support.dell.com, all of your appropriate drivers that came with your system will show up, but if for example your operating systems is windows xp then you change to vista check if there is a drop down box there to change the os, if not click on the search box on the support.dell.com and then type in the name of your audio card and then put vista ( example sigmatel driver vista).
