Dell inspiron 1501 updating issues
Once you get to the support page you should download all the XP drivers for all your components.In theory the ones on Dells site will be the best and most current so even if the install did put in a correct driver you should still upgrade/update them.Hello, My name is Mike, I’m a Technical Analyst at Dell corporate headquarters in Round Rock, TX.I’m part of an internet outreach team developed to interact with the online community regarding technical questions and issues that customers face with Dell products.I read about your problem and wanted to chime in, unfortunately with my condolences.If a BIOS flash goes wrong and is not able to complete then the motherboard is toast. So, about 5 months ago, i got sick of win vista, so i uninstalled that and installed win xp. So, the first and MOST IMPORTANT issue is that the audio doesnt work...
When you get on their web site use your service tag to identify your computer.Generally, some or all of the lights should come on. If you can find a spare battery to verify machine / battery, that would be good.You could also double check contacts on the battery and laptop to make sure they are clean.Some batteries have a test button on them, which you can hold in to see if the battery thinks it is good internally.
(hold the button for a few seconds, the lights should flash). If it skips some of them, there is a REAL problem (I had one like that).
Windows detects it as a Dell PY9617 battery manufactured by "Dyna Pack".
