Sorry for the typo, it was suppose to be Dell WEB site

You can download the drivers from Dell WEB site, the support download page. Make sure you select your model laptop, better still type in the Service Tag number, it is printed on the label on the bottom of the laptop. Also make sure you select the Windows Vista version of the driver for your Windows operating system.

The backlight in your LCD has gone out. You will need to replace the entire LCD. You can look on ebay or here, you will be paying around $300 for it.

Good Luck!

We have a disk stuch in a dell inspiron 1318, there is no OS on it right now. how can we get disk out? there is no place to stick the paper clip

Remove the optical drive, and then open the drive. Remove the disk.

With most laptops this is a simple job.
Turn the laptop over on it's top, remove one Philips head screw, pull the optical drive out.
Remove 2 to 4 screws from a cover on the optical drive, and ease the tray open.

With the Inspiron 1318 Notebook PC it is more difficult.

A) Remove the Display Assembly.
(Removal covers removing the Display Assembly as a whole unit, off of the laptop)

B) Remove the Keyboard.

C) Remove the Palm Rest. (Top cover under the Keyboard. Your palms rest on it when you use the touchpad)

D) Remove the Optical Drive

Dell Support > Dell Inspiron 1318 Service Manual,

In the list click on Optical Drive.

Can you get ANY numbers off the sticker? What you can do is contact DELL and give them your service tag number, they should have your product key (on the bottom as well). Also, the number should be in the CD sleeve that came with the laptop.

Eject stuck disk in Dell inspiron 1318 notebook

Take a Norwegian paper-clip, and straighten one end.
Gently push that end into the small hole in the face-plate of the optical drive.
When you feel resistance, firmly push another 5 mm (1/5 inch).
This should "unlock" the tray.
Press the open/close button, and the tray should fully open.
