    Hi victor amarante, I want to help you with your question, but I need more information from you. Can you please add details in the comment box?
    dell vostro 1320
    NO OS stated at all, and drivers match OS.
    is this XP or vista ?
    do you mean wifi or 3/4/5G wireless.
    did the wifi work before,(the other shoe drops)
    did you look to see if the wifi card is there, as many PC it is and was an option new.
    or did you buy a wifi usb dongle and are installing this,?>? we can not guess any of these very KEY facts. ever. unless stated.
    some came with
    Intel WiFi Link 5300 wireless networking adapter,
    there are 2 ways to make that work
    and wifi can not load the dell drivers if wifi is dead. so a tech would plug in the ethernet cable from his KIT and plug it into the his router and let windows plug and play your missing 5300 driver,

    the second way , more hard, is find PC that works (yours don't) and with working internet, yours is not.
    then at load your missing drivers.

    PC2. you go here

    then click your OS, as you can see there is no w8 or 10 support at all so
    if running w7 , like you should (facts)
    then load this.

    intel Intel(R) WiFi Link 5300, Intel(R) WiFi Link 5100, Intel(R) WiFi Link 5000 Series WLAN Half-Mini Card, v.13.0, A01

    but I warned you the card is and was optional
    what we do is look first, in the wifi slot.
    if missing?, IT IS.

    if you read the manual, it shows where it is. Hint1: service manual page 40 clear as day on that page under the hatch.

PCs 101
OP never once told what OS he runs, what a waste that.
nor what CD his is running, (millions exist OMG)
A LAPTOP and most have a cam, top center, bezel, cam.
if not there its not there. ok? some have dummy lense so .....
wires to it matter, if not wired its not there.
I have PCI scanner that finds all hardware I the PC blind, ASK?

learn this if anything
most PC four sure old and all Desktops made (real not AIO junk)
have options day one,
and many options are missing. for a fact.
the facts of life:
1: the hardware must get there, hint :look , for it. or RTM.
If DM (device manager cant find it ) it is missing hardware camera.
but can be marked Unknown there, so get the driver from Dell.
2: the driver must be present and match your OS, and is found at if MS plug and play fails, then HP is the only answer,
is that clear, or if not do you want infected with virus with hackers selling drivers to dweebs? NO H3LL no.
4: the OS can test the device for you, ever see how W10 works
Im guessing your OS now, so.,.. here goes.
at they have this page and millions of folks reading it. how to test the camera (one way is skype) but lets to it the MS way first (basics tests)
1: make sure the camera is shown in the device manager (CP)
not marked with errors, ok?
2: then

3: if dead they this, (it's clean) 100% clean run it.

in w10 If the camera Is there (not missing) and driver correct do this.
click start
clicks settings (not CP)
click Privacy then camera
let apps use camera, click = ON

I was just about to write "I have the same problem", but i think i fixed it!!!!

background: I move my wireless keybd/mouse between my desktop and laptop units.... All was fine until a few days ago when some update completely disabled my desktop... I think the wireless began malfunctioning about the same time.

Just now, I pressed the ?reconnect button? on the front of the keybd/mouse receiver then pressed the connect buttons on the back of each device and PRESTO!! the keybrd works!!!

I just typed this entire message with the wireless keybd.

I hope this helps someone

Hi Piyush,

My name is Pradeep and I work for Dell's Social Media Team.
Please let us know if the LED on wireless switch shows Solid Blue or off. Please let us know if can see wireless LED on keyboard hinge.

Please check if wireless driver is installed in Device manager. If not, please click on this link:
to install wireless driver.

Please try connecting through Ethernet cable and check if you are able to access internet.

My Vostro 1320 usually can't wake up from standby. The power light comes ON but screen DOESNT. And I have to turn it off every time by holding the power button. I am running WIN7. Please help.

I seems to have the same problem, I tried mouse and keyboard, since the only way to wake up the laptop is to push the power button. Is it suppose to behave this way ?

How to format DELL Vostro 1014 Laptop

If you wish to FORMAT your hard drive so you can re install the OS.
Put your Windows disc into the CD/DVD drive, boot the computer and press F2 (if that does not work try CTRL+ALT and enter) to enter the bios. Change the boot order to boot from the CD drive first.

Follow the onscreen instructions to Install the OS, you should get the option to delete the existing partitions and then to FORMAT.

Original xp

Hi Vostro owner.Dont worry,this can be sorted.Sound issue is not because u installed windows from a Non-dell cd.But i would ask to call up dell because they will provide u the XP disc that should have come with the system or even it is lost from you.Also then we can download the driver from support site : and install it.It is just a mere coincidence now.But the reason i'm asking to get cd from Dell is so that u can avoid any future problems with installing XP from a non-dell cd
