Dell :: Inspiron B130 Drivers/firmware For The DVD Drive And The Wifi Card

Dec 10, 2008

Just opened my girlfriend's laptop, and saw that it had:

CD/DVD Drive TSL462 ver. C

PC2 4200S 4-4-4-12 latency RAM 1 512 MB stick

Dell P/N 0C9063 WiFi Card

I was wondering if someone could give me a link to updated drivers/firmware for the DVD drive and the Wifi Card. I already updated the Intel Chipset from the Intel website.

Also, what is the best kind of RAM it will accept? I was thinking two 1GB sticks of pc2-5300, but I don't know if it'll accept that much? It is Dual channel memory, but it's only using one channel right now obviously. Any help is appreciated, as I need to get her computer in working order by Friday.

Dell :: Inspiron B130 Wireless Si Or No

Oct 13, 2007

I purchased a "slighty used" Dell Inspiron B130 2006 model laptop, which runs with windownsXP. Before I bought it, the guy told me it was "wireless" already and that I could go to any place like "starbucks" etc. and use the internet. Well, we met up at a local place that I knew would have wirless there, and once he arrived, he said that the wirless works, I just needed to go out and buy a card to go into it. Well this upset me bc as I understood it, I didnt need anything else(this is obveously my first laptop, which I paid $320 for). I have even tried hooking it up to my at home cable internet, and it doesnt work. On the laptop it says the Network Adapter is Broadcom and gives a location of PCI bus2, device 3, function 0. Ive tried playing with the network connections, and still dont know what I need for it. My friend came over with her laptop, and a whole bunch of my neighbors have wirless routers, bc her laptop worked everywhere in my house(she has wireless). I went to Target and bought a Lynksys Wireless G notebook adapter(bc it says it interoperates with wireless-B networks). Well I went through the software, and when it said to put the card in, I took the Dell plastic piece out and tried to put in the lynksys card...wouldnt fit. I took a flashlight and saw that the shape of my cardslot is like an "L". I went on the internet and found that I would need some sort of expresscard54 or 34, bc dell made this differant than other notebooks.

All in all, this Lynksys one wont work, Ive tried calling Best Buy and they put me on hold for like 30min.s then hung up on me, called dell, gave them the system code and they told me the laptop isnt under warranty anymore and they couldnt give me any info as to where it was bought or anything. Bottom line, I need to know how much more it will cost me to get this supposedly "wireless already" laptop to actually work.

Dell Inspiron B130 :: Plugged In With Battery But Power Will Not Turn On At All

Apr 8, 2013

Working on a dell Inspiron b130 laptop. The power is plugged in, and battery is in. The power will not turn on at all, no fan or CPU. The main power light comes on when button is pressed for a moment then goes off. The battery light flashes slowly. The power cord adapter has a light on it and that says its working. I have tried taking the battery out and that does nothing.

I had assumed since its an older laptop that maybe the power was so drained that it needed it to be charged a little to have enough power to turn on. But it's been awhile an nothing yet. Is it trashed? We do have another hard drive around to try would that matter at all?

Dell :: Precision M4700 / Control-vault Drivers And Firmware

Apr 29, 2013

I have been having a lot of issues with my Precision M4700 stalling during boot, directly on the display of the Windows logo so I am attempting to reinstall, btw there are serious issues with recovery mode but that is another issue.

My system is English spec but was bought in Germany so I have a German tag. When I choose the firmware and drivers for my machine I am offered a very different versions to those offered for my model. In particular, I see CV version 2.2 when the version offered without using my system tag is 2.3. Are there technical hardware differences or is it just that the German language version of the software isn't yet available?

There are two variants of drivers :

Dell :: The Intel 5300 Wifi Card

May 25, 2009

So, I have just ordered the M1330, and it comes with the 1505. When I asked the dell rep about the 5300, he said it was not compatible with the M1330 due to the motherboard or something?

However, I've read that some people have made the switch, my questions are as follows:

How hard is it to change wifi cards for a noob?
Will this void my warranty?
What are specific gains?
My brother has an M1330,
the internet some times.

Dell :: Replacing XPS 1640 WiFi Card

Aug 29, 2009

Over in the Wireless section I was told that my constant connection drops in Windows 7 are likely just due to the card (Intel 5100) and to replace it with something that isn't Intel. My question is, what is the best card out there to replace my current one that will support a Belkin N router AND fit in my computer? As I have almost no knowledge of Wireless cards I have no idea what the slot is even called that it fits into. Could someone point me in the right direction? Does anyone know about this card

Apple :: Wifi Card In MBP

Feb 8, 2009

I was wondering what wifi card is in the MBP. I am speaking of the newest MBPs which have the Nvidia cards and the Intel CPU (late '08 and current '09 versions).

Also, do you think it is worth it to install a Linux OS on it? I think a dual boot of Mac OS and Linux would be interesting. But, does Linux work on it?

I found this:

I think I have also read of the MBP being able to run Ubuntu as well. The wifi card is one of the few issues? But, which wifi card is in there?

Thanks for any info. I was just curious about the MBP. I also have read of Red Hat wanting to have a Linux OS made especially for the Mac. Not sure if there's any progress with that, though.

Dell :: WIFI Card And Antenna Cables In Latitude E Series

I have ordered E6400 but I have choosen Intel 5100 wifi card with two antenna port. I heard that this model isn't very good so I'm thinking about the upgrade to Intel 5300 with 3 antenna ports. I have a question about the antenna cables. How many cables are there near the wifi card in latitude with 5100? two or three? If there are only 2 cables, so the upgrade brings me no advantage.

Acer :: 4720Z Wifi Card Goes Poof

Apr 29, 2008

I did some searching and couldn't find the cause for my 4720Z's wifi card just disappearing about twice a day!

I'm still running Vista Premium but I have something deleting the Wifi adapter from Device Hardware list about, at least once per day, and not at the same time each day.

I don't know if billy is just throwing a tantrum or which software / hardware (could be Acer installed stuff for either or both!) As mr gates doesn't like other people installing anything but what he sales!

So I start out in Safe Mode, and my audio doesn't work, but my wifi card can be used and doesn't go POOF!

I flip a coin on what I'm going to live without, audio or wifi!

The 4720Z is 3mos old and has been doing the magic trick with the wifi card ever since the 2nd or 3 wk, and I don't know how to find the conflict?
