Dell :: Safe To Install Drivers From Different Model?

Aug 28, 2009

I have an Inspiron 1420 and I'm going to upgrade to Windows 7, the drivers listed for the 1420 are outdated,

I can find newer ones searching the support site but they are listed for other models.

Is it better to just stick with the ones listed for my model or should I go with the updated ones. What do most people here do?

Dell :: Safe To Clean Install When Battery Is Dead ?

Jun 19, 2009

I'm going to do a clean install of Vista soon but my battery is dead, won't even recharge, needs to be replaced.

Just wondering if I will run into any issues ?

Dell seem extortionate for an Inspiron 1520 replacement. Worth a 3rd party risk? Seen some non OEM ones on ebay with a 1 year guarantee for half the price.

Acer :: Freezing - Tried To Install My Original Drivers And They Won't Install

Dec 7, 2009

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.

Acer :: Confusing Aspire Model/sub Model Numbers

Mar 5, 2009

I'm trying to find info on an aspire... Not the model # itself as that is not the problem, but the sub model#...

The model is Acer Aspire 8930G, but the sub model # is 6963 and that is where my research seems to go dry... Does anyone have info on this sub model #?

Also i might ask is how user friendly is the 8930G for upgrades as for the processor and video? The current processor is the T5800 with the 9600m nvidia... Would it make sense to upgrade and what is the potential of this 8930G with the T5800?

Dell :: How Do I Install New Drivers For DVD/CD?

Jan 13, 2010

I have no idea how to do this. When I visit the Dell site and input my laptops info it recommends driver updates.

Most installed without a problem, however the DVD/CD drivers are a mystery. There are 11 recommended updates to the drivers but I cant figure out how to install them.

Some are applications but most are zipped files. Where to begin?

Here are the file names:

Applications: R235097, R246607, TSST_TS_L633C-12-7SATA-TRAY-A06_R20075
Zipped files: AD-7580S FD06, DV_W28SV_ROB_UPDATER, GTION-WIN7-A107, HLDS-CTION-A104, R250548_KD03FW, SA3_HD14, SA4_JD12, SE1_ED14

Dell :: Windows 7 Clean Install Drivers And Partitions

Nov 1, 2009

I am getting my win7 upgrade disc tomorrow for my studio 1555, and I was wondering a few things before I carry out my clean install.

First, with regards to drivers, there do not seem to be drivers for everything on the dell win7 driver page (nothing for bluetooth, system utilities, etc.). I have downloaded everything relevant to my computer, but where can I find the rest of the drivers I need? Also, what order should I be installing them?

Second question is in regards to the recovery partition. Is there any point keeping it? I have heard various things about whether it will or won't work after installing windows 7

Dell :: Clean Install On D630 -- Am I Missing Any Important Drivers?

Jan 20, 2009

I just got my Seagate Momentus 7200.3 320GB hard drive today. I don't have any external cases I could use to do a backup image and I wanted to do a clean install anyway since I haven't done one to this system since I bought it.

I've tried using Dell's driver disc that came with the system but it's out of date.

The Web site has been a mess as well. Selecting through the service tag Dell is offering drivers for hardware that was never part of this machine and hardware that is apart of it isn't listed unless I look at all D630 drivers.

Here's what I've downloaded:
Quickset Application
Sigmatel Audio driver
Touchpad driver
Smartcard driver

Dell Inspiron 15R :: Unable To Install Nvidia Drivers Downloaded

Mar 8, 2013

 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.

Dell Studio 1558 :: Missing Drivers / Unable To Install

Dell Inspiron 14Z-N411Z :: Download Drivers To USB To Install On Laptop

Nov 21, 2014

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.

Sony :: VAIO- Can't Install Drivers

Aug 21, 2009

My problem is that I bought a VAIO laptop (VGN-FW31M) and it came with windows vista. So I formated it and installed Windows XP PRO SP3.

(I had the common SATA driver problem but I managed to solve it).

The problem comes when I try to install any driver, even the CHIPSET driver.
I get a message saying:

"This computer does not meet the minimum requirements for installing this software. Setup will exit"

I got all the drivers from the sony official site.
