Dell Studio 1737 :: Can't Seem To Find Correct Fingerprint Driver To Download
Sep 23, 2009
I've just completed a full clean install of Win 7 on my Dell Studio (1737) laptop. I can't seem to find the correct fingerprint driver to download. I'm using win 7 x64.I can see the AuthenTec Inc. AES2810 Driver under device manager and it says it's working.I have the digital persona software installed and it tells me the fingerprint reader is not installed or can't be detected.
I have a Studio 1737 that was gifted to me with Fuduntu on it. I am trying to reinstall Windows 7 on it. I insert the disc and the install auto starts. It gets about 2 minutes in and I get an error message saying that it "can not find the CD driver. Please install to continue. You can remove the windows disc to install from another disc and then resume installation" or something to that affect. I did not copy the error message. Except that it was already using the CD drive to get this far so there was some driver at work here.
A month ago I bought Studio 1737 with ATI Radeon HD 3650 video card. From the very first day there was a problem with video driver or hardware.
Each day (sometimes 2-3 times a day) I get the following message:
"Display driver has stopped responding and has recovered. Display driver igfx has stopped responding and has successfully recovered."
The display starts blinking for 3-5 seconds and after that it works fine again or crashes to blue screen with IRQL_NOT_LEFF_R_EQUAL. If it crashes to blue screen it will work find after rebooting.
Most of the time I use the laptop with the external monitor connected (I use it as extended desktop). And I think the problem might be related to the use of the external monitor. I tested 3 different monitors (Acer, Dell and ViewSonic) and it happened with each of those. So I know for sure that the problem is not with the monitor itself. In the same time it crashed only once when I used it without external monitor connected.
After trying everything by myself (re-installing video drivers, updating bios and even reinstalling viste) I called Dell. They asked me to do some things but couldn't figure out the problem. Then they asked to run a diagnostic test and it found Error Code 5300:1028. When I reported that code to Dell tech specialist he said I need to send the notebook for repair/exchange since that code means there is a hardware issue with video card. They agreed to send me another laptop. So I've been using the first one I got for about 2 week and each day it crashed.
A week ago I received the new laptop. It's almost the same configuration. Before setting the new laptop up I decided to run the same Diagnostic test and it showed the same error!!! I called Dell right away and they said it might not be a problem and asked me to use new laptop and see how it works. First day I didn't have an external monitor and everything worked fine. The next day I connected the second monitor and the system crashed just in couple hours. The same happens almost each day. But this one usually just shows the the "Display driver stopped responding..." message and doesn't crashes to blue screen. Anyway the problem exists.
Last week I've been contacting Dell each day. They didn't find any problem but keep saying it's a problem with drivers. They offered to send laptop to them for testing but I can't do so because I need the laptop for each day working.
After doing a fresh install of windows 7 Professional 32Bit, my wifi drivers did not install, i have tried numerous drivers of the website for my laptop and they don't work, ive tried many things but cant seem to find the right drivers, my laptop is a HP Elitebook 2530p, can find the correct drivers for my wifi Card?
One of my friend is having Dell Studio 1535 (vista 64 bit). After formatting the system fingerprint reader is not working properly and is asking for driver (he used the cd that came along laptop but it is not working).
I also tried to look on the dell website but unable to find proper driver
I have a dm4-2165dx laptop, and it has a built-in fingerprint reader. I've installed the Validity driver (ver: 188.8.131.52) and DigitalPersona. When I try to enroll a fingerprint, it tells me it can't find the fingerprint reader. Windows 7 x64 SP1 is the OS. I had to find DigitalPersona elsewhere as it was not listed on my product's Driver page.
I had Vista on my notebook and downgraded it to Xp.
And now I can't download any of the Video Controller VGA Compatible driver that is on the internet. I tried many download links and none of them wanted to complete the installation. It always says can't install. And now I tried to uninstall this driver and install it back again but it's gone and I don't find it anymore on the device manager.
I have dell inspiron 3521 with windows 7 64 bit installed on it . I don't know from where i can download the wireless card driver. I tried to download the driver from dell website but it did not installed the wireless driver. I am unable to download my wireless driver for my dell 3521.
Where has the driver download page gone for the HP Envy 15 j 151sa notebook ? I was on the page only 2 weeks ago and its not there anymore. I have selected the appropriate country and even entered the serial number but still nothing!
My notebook: HP Envy 15 j 151 Windows 8.1 64-Bit Purchased in Ireland
My windows got corrupted, so I had to reinstall it, and I was trying to grab the drivers from the support page
However, once I select the operating system, it gives the loading symbol and never moves forward. I've waited a half hour to no effect. I tried looking up other laptops and their driver pages loaded immediately, so I don't believe it's on my end. Is there a problem with the page?
I have a Touchsmart 15-j040us notebook that is now a little over a year old (now out of warranty). My laptop has been asking to upgrade to Windows 8.1 since the first week or two after I purchased the system brand new.
The update downloads just fine and begins the install but fails every time when it is trying to install the different devices. At that point the screen goes black, the laptop reboots and I get an error message saying that update did not work and that the system has been restored to its previous condition.
After working through HP tech support, including sending the laptop to them to reimage, I am still unable to perform the update, which means my laptop is incapable of running the apps and programs that HP says my laptop is ready to run.
I am fairly confident that the issue is the Nvidia video driver. The currently supported version (version 9.xxx) of the driver is not compatible with 8.1. HP has a driver listed that is compatible with 8.1 (version 10.xxx), but I can't download it until my laptop is running 8.1. Nvidia has posted on the site a driver that is compatible with both operating systems, but I can't seem to download and install it so that I can perform the update. How to download the driver from Nvidia so that I can perform this update?
I'm looking for a notebook, the two things that are most important to me are screen size and performance. My computer usage is mainly websurfing, photos, music, IM'ing, that kinda stuff. I'm a huge multi-tasker, somehow I always end up with 1000 windows and programs open, I need a computer that can deal with that. I don't think I've ever played a game on a computer, so gaming is a complete non-issue.
I live a pretty mobile life, hence my desire for a laptop. I'm drawn towards computers with asthetically pleasing features ie funky colours, light-up keyboards, etc. I know their functionality is limited, just what I like.
I found this one, [url]
it's refurb which is fine by me, I don't know much about computer numbers (I'm trying to learn as fast as I can) but this one seems to be up my alley, I really dig the red too, plus the half price from OEM. Others I've looked at are the alienware m17 and the dell XPS 1730, although it doesn't look like Dell is selling that from their canadian site anymore.
I decided to redo another thread about Windows XP Pro 32-bit drivers that will work with the Studio 1737 Laptop. These drivers may work with the 1735, 1555, and 1535 lines as well (except for the Chipset).
Please note the components of the system I purchased. (Below) If you have any of the same components, then you're good to go. I'll post other drivers as well that I find along the way in this journey of getting the Studio line to function properly on Windows XP Pro 32-bit.
My Studio 1737 main components purchased in Sept, 2009. Intel Core 2 Duo P7350, 2.0GHz, 1066Mhz, 3M L2 Cache 512MB ATI Mobility Radeon HD 3650 Intel 5100 Wireless-N (1x2) Half Mini-Card Broadcom ethernet Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi MB (the particular Creative software I have will not install on XP, but the IDT Audio drivers are needed) Back-lit Keyboard (no application for this in XP. Just press the FN and RIGHT arrow)
Also, I'd like to add these observations. 1. Touch Pad (black plate above the keypad) -- The Volume, Pause, Stop, Eject controls work, but the Volume Up and Down ONSCREEN Diagram doesn't appear. BUT IT DOES WORK, JUST KEEP TAPPING THE VOLUME BUTTONS, and you'll notice the Volume fluctuates. 2. For Battery and Power Screen brightness to be the same... Press FN and the UP/Down Key. Then unplug Power cord, and repeat for the brightness to be the same when unplugged. 3. For Back Lit Keyboard to work...Press FN and the RIGHT ARROW. Repeat this action to dim, and turn off.
Picked up one at Futureshop in Toronto. Originally I wanted to go directly through Dell so I can upgrade to the 7200rpm sata harddrive, and possibly WLED display. In the end I couldn't want to wait x weeks for it to arrive (for work reasons).
Overall impression, very happy!
-I chose this mainly for the keyboard. Very simple english-only keyboard, with hardly any multi-functions on one key. No crazy labels and colors, just plain jane. Loved how all needed working keys are included like pgup/pgdn/home/end/del/backspace/etc... I find it infuriating on other laptops when any of these keys are missing, combined, too small, etc. Love the seperate numpad.
-Yes, the keyboard is 'flexy' but I don't think it warrants the amount heat ppl are giving it. I kind of like it flexy actually. Maybe they are on to something in terms of tactility or useability.
-Biggest disappointment: no backlit keyboard included !!!!! Was a shocker to me which I only discovered 5 hours later at night. If you order directly from Dell in Canada, do you get a backlit keyboard? Is there anyway this can be added or upgraded?
-Yes, it does have an eSata port! Some people have said only the 15" Studio version does does.
-Love the power and find-network buttons on either side of the display hinges. They got a rubbery touch and the placement makes sense.
-I am pretty sure I got a regular CCFL LCD with this, as Futureshop doesn't have the option to upgrade to WLED or RGB LED backlighting. I'll say I'm very happy with it, and my at home I am going to connect to a CRT anyways, which I can do colour correcting work on when I need to. I think I spent too much time worrying about upgrading the display when the regular CCFL LCD is fine.
I'm having some pretty big problems with the wireless on my 1737. It has the Intel 5300 card installed.
I have an 802.11a/n router, the AVM Fritz!Box Fon WLAN 7270. It worked perfectly fine with my previous laptop, an Acer Aspire 5920G with an Intel 4965 but with the Studio it constantly drops off.
On Wednesday it disconnected and reconnected 51 times in 5 hours! Setting the router back to 2.4 GHz seems to reduce the disconnects but not remove them entirely (2.4 is clogged in my area so that's why I'm using 5). The thing is, I tried a 4965 card in the Studio and that was dropping off too .....
