Dell Inspiron 14Z :: How To Download Drivers And Save Them To CD / DVD And Install On Machine
Nov 25, 2014
Inspiron14Z (5423) mid 2012.
Dropped computer during move,lost all the disks and paperwork.Hard drive was damaged so purchased new one locally..Downloaded ISO win 7 86,installed used original validation.It booted up all fine but no drivers for mouse or Ethernet or wifi actually no drivers.Mouse works.
How can I download the drivers and save them to CD/DVD and install on machine.
I am trying to download drivers for a Dell Inspiron 14Z -N411Z to a USB drive through another laptop, because the hard drive on that Dell completely gave up. There is no installation software disc as it was on another partition on that same hard drive.
When I attempt to install the drives required to the USB drive on my Toshiba, it first wants to install the dsd.exe file before I can download the drivers. After I downloaded that dsd.exe file, I don't seem to find a way to install the required drivers as well. the DellSystemDetect.exe file wants to do that for me, but it is not on the correct laptop.
What do I need to do, to get those drivers downloaded on the USB, so I can complete the installation. I already installed the Windows 7 Home Premium (x64) on the Dell laptop.
If you navigate to the drivers' download page for Inspiron 7520, you will notice under "BIOS" that there is a version A11 (released date: October 15, 2012) available for download.However, the small print says "Applies to: Dell Vostro 3560 system BIOS". Is it safe to flash my current BIOS version A04 to A11 for my Inspiron 7520? If not, why is that item listed in the first place?
I am getting back my Dell E4300 I sold on eBay because some dummy thinks the computer is slow (takes too long to load Windows) I want to reinstall Windows XP Pro with the MINIMAL amount of drivers/software required. Does anyone have a list of drivers I MUST install on the Dell E4300
I don't have the ssd msata option in the laptop I just purchased from Newegg so I decided to buy a samsung 840 250g ssd and do a clean install of win 7.Updated ssd to latest firmware, disabled secure boot in bios, sata was already set to ACHI, installed ssd and started loading win 7. It would get to the point that the tiles are floating around and it says "starting windows" and then locks up. Tried this several times and same thing.
Finally tried changing boot mode from eufi to legacy it works fine. I got win 7 installed. Now if I try to go back to eufi boot mode it just goes to a black screen (on start up) and displays detecting media (or something like that).So I guess my question is:
1. Why did I have to switch to legacy mode to begin with
2. Does leaving it in legacy boot mode affect performance?
One last thing, since installing win 7 I have been unable to install the nvidia drivers downloaded from dell for win 7. It either starts and immediately fails or it installs a little then I get a blue screen and the computer reboots.
I recently purchased this laptop and I have no alternate nvidia drivers, when installing i get the error message no compatible hardware found. I have already tried adding my device to the .inf list with no success, i might be doing it wrong?
Both intel HD 3000 and nvidia GT 625M drivers are listed on my product driver page but i do not know if I'm limited to what comes pre installed.
I have uninstalled Windows 8 and installed Windows 7 64bit Pro on my new Lenovo Ideapad u410. I managed to get all the drivers working... EXCEPT ONE: The WLAN.
Now here's what I did and what happens every time I try to install the WLAN driver:
I have downloaded the driver "WiFi Link Driver (Intel, CyberTan, Liteon) for Microsoft Windows 7 (32-bit, 64-bit)" from the page [URL] ... multiple times and tried installing it multiple times. The installation process works until the status "Search the target device in this machine" shows up. As soon as this status shows up, the installation exits without an error message or anything else. How to get it working. I can't even use this machine without WLAN.
By the way: - LAN works fine - It's not a hardware issue as the WiFi worked fine on the preinstalled Win8 - The WiFi won't even show up under Windows - I have not installed "Intel WiMax Driver for Microsoft Windows 7 (32-bit, 64-bit)" driver as I am told that this is not used. - Of course I am running the .exe as Administrator - I tried installing Win7 on UEFI before.
I have a DV7-6179us and never had any problems until about a month or so ago when it became super sluggish (it's almost impossible to even type). So yesterday I formatted and did a clean install of Windows 7-64bit. I've been trying to download drivers from the HP support site but the page won't display them. It just keeps loading indefinitely.
I was able to get most drivers from a third-party website (that has the link to HP ftp) but my computer is still super sluggish. I don't know if I'm missing a driver or something is corrupted. I wanted to get the drivers from the HP support site to make sure...
I resently brought a new laptop probook 450 G1. I want to download drivers for windows 8.1 operating system. When I check the driver download page it list many drivers for e.g under wirless network they list many drivers. How do I know which one to download exactly. I tried finding exact specifications for my product but they only have a general one for the model no which described all posible haredware.
I attempted to upgrade my Win 8.1 ENVY DV7-7230US laptop to Win 8.1 via the App store. It said I had to clear all the updates first. So I went the System Updates Screen. When I clicked on it to see what updates were needed. The circling wait symbol appeared and never went away. I can not do any system updates, thus I can not download and install the FREE Win8.1 upgrade.
I chose a Dell Inspiron and believe the model is 15R although I can't be sure as I cannot remember exactly which one I chose to begin with and just checked my Dell boxes and all I saw was 'P17F', so I don't know if that's the model haha! But anyway..
Ever since I got my laptop to begin with there was the occasional time where it would switch off randomly. At first I found no reason for it and thought it might just be me and that I need to be a little more careful with it. Then it became more frequent and I noticed that it's when I move my laptop. I had it on my lap one day, I pulled my laptop a little closer to me as I was reading, and it shut down. I turned it on again and all was fine but now, 15 months on it's becoming a daily problem. I have checked the bottom of my laptop and see nothing that could be causing it. It is at the point now where small things such as tilting the screen back (and my laptop moves), setting my laptop on a cushion even the tiniest movements can cause it to switch off.
Just a minute a go, I put my sofa recliner up and it shut down as it was resting on my lap. I turned it on again, moved my leg slightly and it went again. I put it on a cushion because sometimes that works, it shut down again. I moved my laptop slightly to position it on the cushion better, went AGAIN. Then I tilted the screen back ever so slightly, it went again. I'm wondering if it's just the battery, as my battery only lasts for two hours unplugged when at first it lasted for five, then went down to three, and now two.
I have a dell Inspiron 15r 3537 i7 model with windows 8. I bought it 4 months ago. I was playing a game on it and it suddenly hanged. I waited for 5-10 minutes and tried to close the game but it wasn't closing and it was hung. I waited for atleast 15 minutes and I had no choice so I switched it off from the power button thinking that it will turn on normally. But when I switched it on it showed the dell logo and then it said
Checking media Checking media [fail] Checking media [fail]
No boot device found. Press any key to reboot the machine.
I have had an aspire 5920g for about 18 months now and it was all working fine until I updated the graphic drivers, but the drivers stopped installing halfway through and now I can't install any graphic drivers.
I tried to install my original drivers and they won't install. The system keeps freezing and I think thats the problem.
I've tried making a recovery disc but erecovery won't recognize blank DVD's and acer 'support' are only too happy to grab you by your feet, turn you upside down and let all your money fall out so they can charge you for a reovery disc - absolutely ridiculous - instead of actually trying to help me.
And also for some reason a yellow triangle appeared next to the ACEYTS4Y IDE controller a week after I got it but up until now didn't seem to cause any problems.
i have a dell inspiron 3000s laptop, the machines felt and the screen & data cable are broken so when i power on the machine is giving 8 beeps repeatedly and the machines does not display what could be the problem.
cant run launch diagnostic download. Today when I opened laptop from "hibernate" I got a blue screen that said "windows crash dump". My security is updated and running. Doesn't look like anything has happened. Who do I contact for this?
