Dell Inspiron 5520 :: Windows 8 Drivers Cannot Be Installed
Apr 5, 2013
I have inspiron 5520 and i brought new windows 8 after that I lost all the drivers and every time i try to download any driver from dell drivers it says it can't be installed because my computer doesn't meet the minimum requirements.
I had to reinstall windows because of a virus. Windows 7 Home Premium
I am unable to load the audio and card reader drivers. I've ran all the windows updates and use Dell's support for finding the correct drivers. The system analysis identifies the drivers I need, but they refuse to load.
My laptop is something wrong. Bluetooth doesn't work, i have installed wireless+ bluetooth and wireless is working perfectly, but bluetooth dont work. There is Bluetooth icon in bar, but when i click it, trying to send files, or get files i cant find any bluetooth devices. When i try to add devices, not even one devices is showing up, its empty. In driver manager there is Bluetooth radios when i open it, show ups bluetooth drivers I think.. Tried uninstall and install it, doesn't work either. Tried register to dell.com but i can't some servers problems.
I just had this notebook-pc HP 14-d008au 14 inch and my issues are: When the package brought to me it doesnt have any dvd or cd for all drivers, second the OS is ubuntu when I changed it to Windows 8 some drivers from your website when I run it, it can't be installed. Third the wifi and bluetooth is not working ( it cannot recognize wireless internet and devices). I can't use this thing because of some missing hardwares and drivers.
i just installed xp on my acer 5520-5334, having some issues. can not get my webcam to work, not sure wich one i have had tried all. also have several "?' drivers in my harware config. anyhelp would be greatly appreciated.. also are there any known over heating issues with this pc. keeps powering off after a period of time, and that varies from 1 minute to 45 minutes etc..
my first time to own a laptop :D so now i bought this laptop ( inspiron 15r 5520 ) like 4 months ago .. laptop works perfectly fine and i like it :D now though i would like to upgrade it to windows 8 i already got my windows 8 now though im thinking of installing it on my laptop question is this if i were to install it right now what should i do ?? is there any drivers or anything i need to install once more after i install windows 8 ?
I've recently get support from HP team and installed my original windows 7 home premium using my product key. Then installed updates of Wireless, Internet and Home Network, but within a short period, my laptop get stuck and no keyboard could not work at all except power on/off button. Then I installed my original windows 7 home premium and it was, I can access although I could not installed any other programs and my personal ducoment.
My laptop detials:
Note Model: HP Pavilion g6 Notebook PC Model: g6-1320so
Im using windows 8 on my Dell 5520 laptop. now a problem is happening from past few days i could'n hibernate my Laptop, when ever i do it, sometimes it shutdown my system and sometimes it restarted to login screen.
I got Inspiron 15R 5520 with Windows 8 and after I installed this OS my webcam doesn't work properly anymore.Well, actually it's work but sometimes. But almost all the time Skype telling me that I should close all the programs that may use the webcam, but I haven't any other apps that uses webcam, Is there some additional drivers or application I should install? BTW it worked properly on Windows 7. And it IS working on Ubuntu so I presume that's a software issue.
I have just received my new Inspiron 15R which I cannot fault, even after the minefield of getting to grips with Windows 8.........However for some reason my wifi connection will be stable for about 10 minutes and then show limited connection with no internet access although the network connection is very good! All other laptops and devices are still connected!
I received my Dell Inspiron 15R - 5520 laptop and am attempting to set it up to perform a UEFI boot to a Windows 7 (64 bit) installation. I am using bios version A11 which is the latest available.
If I use legacy, I am able to boot fine to the Installation DVD and install/use the system. If I use UEFI (non-secure boot), it will freeze during the boot process for a long period of time. I do not ever get to the GUI to attempt installation. I have tried clearing the disk partitions using diskpart -> clean to ensure it is not due to having GPT vs MBR and have also tried changing the SATA adapter to ATA vs AHCI.
Alternately, I am able to boot to, and install Windows 8 RTM in UEFI mode.
Before I get a lot of responses of "Don't use UEFI", the reason I purchased this laptop was for the purpose of dual booting between windows 8 and windows 7 for development purposes, and require the use of secureboot to properly test the software I am developing. If this laptop is not able to run Windows 7 in UEFI mode, I will need to return it and select an alternate vendor.
Just installed Windows 7 64bit on my inspiron 1420 and its running fine. the only driver i'm having a hard time finding is "base system device" (location: PCI bus 3 device 1, function 3). i have no idea what it is and have no idea where to start looking for it. Dell's driver and suport website has to be one of the worst site ever cuz its soo hard to find anything. so if someone can help or have any idea i kind of need some help. and can someone show me were to get windows 7 64 bit drivers off the dell site? i'm looking to install the touch pad drivers so i can get more of the options and features.
I just purchased a new Dell inspiron 3542. it came with a preinstalled Ubuntu. touch pad was working fine. I deleted Ubuntu and installed Windows 8. Now touch pad is not working and Wifi adapter is also not working. I swear its only 7 hours when i purchased this laptop. and facing these issues.
I also tried the drivers from dell website. downloaded and installed. my win8 is 64 bits.
How to resolve it. is this issue is under warranty?
I'm installing Windows Vista (64-bit edition) on my Dell Inspiron 1520.
Previously I was using the 32-bit edition, with the Vista-32 drivers from the Inspiron 1520 page on the Dell website.
As you know, Dell does not officially support 64-bit on the Inspiron 1520, although the processor is 64-bit capable. Thus, there are no Vista-64 drivers on the Inspiron 1520 page. I'm searching for appropriate drivers, but am unsure on the following issues:
1) Often a Dell Vista-64 driver exists on the Dell website, for the exact same device as mine, but for a different laptop. Especially when intended for newer laptops, these drivers often have a higher version number (and more recent release date) than the corresponding Vista-32 driver available for the old Inspiron 1520. Is it safe to install these?
2) Is it safe to install drivers directly from the device manufacturer? For example, can I download the Matrix Storage Manager or INF Chipset driver directly from Intel, or does the Dell version have customizations that are essential for my laptop?
I'm looking to upgrade my 1720 to windows 7 64 bit. Drivers are not listed on the dell site. Only Vista 32bit and Windows XP. I'm looking to go windows 7 since it offers TRIM support for SSDs. I have a spare SSD and was going to put it in the 1720 prior to giving it to my brother.
I have a new Inspiron 7737 and installed Windows 7 Enterprise Edition on it. The laptop is wire-connected to a modem. The problem is that the Ethernet card driver is needed. The only driver I found (.exe file) on the Dell site was for Windows 8/8.1. I tried to install (i.e. run) it anyways, but that didn't work (it complained about the absence of the controller and did not show up in the list of the available drivers...).
recently i purchased one dell inspiron 3520 laptop,but some of my software is not compatible with windows 8 operation system. where i can get the drivers for windows xp sp3 and i want to have dual operating system on laptop windows 8 with windows xp sp3.
There is a problem with my PCI device drivers. The message on the properties page is "The drivers for this device are not installed. (Code 28).There is no driver selected for the device information set or element.To find a driver for this device, click Update Driver." I have tried Updating the drivers but it doesn't work. I am using Win7 32-bit,
