Dell Vostro 3450 :: Can't Reinstall Drivers After OS Reinstall

Feb 3, 2013

My Dell Vostro 3450 (windows 7) had been running slowly for a while and after a virus scan didn't work, I decided to reinstall my operating system. I used the OS reinstall disk that came with the computer and that seemed to work pretty well. However, when it came time to install the drivers, I hit a roadblock. I put in the drivers disk and tried to go through the list of what drivers to install first (DSS, then chipset, etc...) but each time I installed something, it didn't seem to do anything-- I would go through the whole process for each one, but the little check mark wouldn't appear next to it in the "My System" list.... See below:

My computer can't connect to the internet either by ethernet or wifi, and can only input info through the cd drive.

Dell :: Reinstall XP Pro SP2 W SATA For Vostro 1500

Jan 24, 2010

My wife has a 3-year old Vostro 1500 running Xp Pro, Sp3, and it was somewhat messed up (wouldn't accept Windows updates, the Firewall stopped working, and couldn't be turned on even with administrative tools, stopped being accessible on the network, etc.).

So, I backed up everything 3 times, including a drive image, and wanted to reinstall XP using the Dell XP SP2 disk.

I removed the Dell Mediacenter partition, but left the first (small) partition. I reformatted the remaining partition as NTFS, and installed XP. Despite the fact that the Dell disk contained the SATA drivers, when I looked in Device Manager, I found that the HD was seen as an IDE drive, and not a SATA drive .......

Dell Vostro 3360 :: Windows Reinstall - Installer Can't Find Any Drives

Jan 6, 2015

I've got a Dell Vostro 3360 laptop, with a 500gb HDD + 32gb SSD (hybrid) and a pre-installed Windows 8.1. My problem is the following: I've tried to re-install the OS (windows 7 x64) but the installer can't find any drives. I've googled the problem and found this topic: [URL] .....

It says:

1. Ensure Sata mode is set to RAID in BIOS or in some systems Intel Smart Response Technology
2. Go to RAID BIOS(Use Ctrl+I) and disable accelerate option for SSD (Only if HDDs are not detected while OSRI)

My raid setting is ISRT, but I can't enter the raid bios, cause CTRL+ I does nothing. I also tried CTRL + R and G but neither worked. How to reinstall the OS?

Dell :: Reinstall X-Fi MB

Sep 30, 2009

Well I need to format my XPS 16.. Any idea where I get the X-Fi MB suite to redownload? I called tech support and they kept insisting it's included with the IDT drivers and had no real clue what it was. Then they said to download it on the driver page... Well you can't as it's not a driver. They have the X-Fi mb listed, but it's only for the patch.

Dell :: XPS M1730 Vista Reinstall

Apr 27, 2009

Today I will get my XPS M1730 (warranty replacement for my Gen2). I'll get it with Vista Home Premium 32bit and I have a few questions.

1. Is the installation by dell "bloated" with unnecessary stuff?
2. If it is, I plan to reinstall Vista with a retail Ultimate DVD my friend has bought. Can I use the serial on the backside of my computer for this installation to get a clean Home Premium installation?
3. Will I need to activate afterwards, like call MS or something...........

Dell :: Reinstall Windows 7 On My New Studio 17

Jan 30, 2010

I just recieved my new Studio 17. I noticed that there's a lot of trial software on it that I don't want.

Also, I want to partition the drive.

I know that there's a recovery partition on the HD. If I partition and reinstall, will the recovery partition still be there. Will it still work down the road if I need it?

Also, if I reinstall Windows 7 and the drivers and utilities, will it be the same as what I have now?

Dell :: Windows Xp Reinstall Problems Fixed

Nov 10, 2009

I finally fixed all my problems (kinda) I have sound, wireless card, can go stadby hibernate, ethernet device works etc etc, Don't know how I did it because I went to so many different sites and google it thousand times!!!

I've noticed that sometimes you can't get the right drivers from dell even with the service tag number, I got some drivers from dell, but not from my specific model drivers download page!

The only problem I have now is that my hotkey: fn+esc don't work, it doesn't put my computer into standby like it should, the other hotkeys work just fine, Anyone know why? I also would like to get an older version of quickset because the new version that I got now I don't like it, its 7.1.8, I've been looking for the version that came with my computer from the factory but I don't know what version is! I liked that one better.

Dell :: Reinstall Operating System On Brand New ?

Apr 10, 2009

From what I have read I am under the impression that new Dell systems often are delivered with many unnecessary programs that use system resources and slow down the computer.

I will be receiving a new Latitude E6400 with Vista Ultimate in the next few days and I am unsure whether or not I should reinstall the operating system or leave it as is.

Dell XPS L702X :: How To Completely Reinstall Laptop

Mar 5, 2013

As result of completely frozen laptop when trying to copy a very large file (~17GB) - a georeferenced raster image - to an external HDD (connected to USB 3.0 port), I had no other choice than to shutdown. After reboot, I discoverd that some Windows services are not working and boot time is over 20 minutes.

I went to the IT store from which I bought the laptop ( the 2 years warranty is available till november this year) and they reinstalled the system. Of course, they did not reinstalled all Dell system applications.So, because the end of warranty is close, I want to know which are the steps for completly (fresh) reinstall of Dell XPS L702X laptop (windows, driver and Dell applications). I always reinstalled 5 times my desktop ( Win XP Pro) with no errors encountered so I think I might have some skills.

And another question : after this problem, I discovered over the Internet that is a "Reinstallation DVD DELL XPS 17 L702x 6.1 Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 X64" that I did not find in laptop case when I bought it (only drivers CD was in the case). In fact it was a 15" case, not the origina 17" case....what can I say.... Romania......So, I have this driver CD and Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 DVD. Is is enough for clean and complete reinstallation? What are the steps ?

Dell Inspiron 15R :: Cannot Reinstall Factory Image

Apr 7, 2013

Had an online chat session to get IE to work.    By the end of the session all the unit would do is cycle in safe mode.    Indicated I should reinstall factory image.   I have done that twice without success.   It begins to reload and still only gets into safe mode and the system cannot do the initial setup in safe mode.   How do I get this thing to boot normally at this time?
