Can I use other drivers on a Dell computer

Q: Can I use other drivers on a Dell computer

Hi, I have had a lot of trouble on my 6 year old Dell Desktop Dimension 2400 computer, it is too complex to go into detail here' but it has been a nightmare for nearly 4 weeks and I am still going to have do it all over again as in reinstall Win XP / or the drivers at least.

It crashes to Bluescreen every time I Insert a USB stick, Connect and start my Printer, or connect my Western Dig Ext HD which has all the stuff I backed up on.

The major problem was that I missed the "install order list" the first time (my own inexperience) but I have found another DELL list and it Contradicts the First order List anyway' Sooo! Is there a site where I can find out what I need the Order to install them and download them onto a Disk or USB as I had no internet when I first installed Widows XP that was the beginning of my downfall. I have been to DELL Forum's and tried to do the things they suggest but you cannot delete all the USB,s in Disc Manager/ Devices/ USB's/ as you have no Keyboard or Mouse half way through? Thanks if you can help Dasha

A: Can I use other drivers on a Dell computer

Wow. Yea. Sounds like your machine is currently "quite the mess"!

You should certainly start with the drivers on the Dell web site.

Always start with the chipset drivers. I'd do network and storage (IDE) drivers next then the others. Install drivers before installing the applications.

Hello to all,   I recently did a clean reinstall of Windows XP (Home) on my Dell Dimension 2350. All went fine. Now I need to install the correct drivers. I have the Dell Resource disc and this is where the problem starts.    As noted elsewhere, after the reinstall the screen display of the Resource disc is as it would be in "Safe Mode". I was aware of this. As such, the Resource disc Search Criteria screen was a bit larger than the monitor screen. I was able to size it to fit the screen but this is really not the problem it is the following: The Search Criteria options I have from the drop down menus (on screen) are as follows:System Model:   All, Dimension C521, DXC061, Dimension DXP0G1, Dimension E521, DM061, XPS710    (Which, if any, do I pick?)Operating System: (I think I got this one)   All, Windows XPTopic:   (Maybe this one too)   All, Applications, Dell Diagnostics, Diagnostics, Drivers, Utilities   For the life of me I cannot figure out the exact drivers I am to install*. Windows XP only appears in the Operating System menu. I pretty much know the install order but as I said, I'm a bit confused about selecting the correct drivers from the disc. This computer is not connected to the internet at the moment so I can't download and use any sort of driver detection program. Other searches have confused me further and have provided no specific answer to this problem.&nbs... Read more

A:Installing drivers after Windows XP reinstall on Dell Dimension 2350 using Dell Resource disc

You need, in installation order:

Chipset driver
Video driver (depends on which video card)
Audio driver
Network driver (depends on which you have)
Modem driver, if you use a dialup modem

Go to the Support page and put in your Service Tag. It should give you the drivers you need. You can download them on any PC and copy onto a USB stick for installation on the 2350.
You only need the applications, if you actually use them (eg, Roxio, Jasc Paintshop, etc).
Then install your antiviral software and get online to the Microsoft Update site for all the patches and updates.
Keep in mind that XP is no longer supported by Microsoft and they stopped releasing security fixes for XP and IE9, more than 1 year ago. So they're both full of security holes and put your personal data at risk.

My Dell XPS L502x is 14 months old (i7, 8GB, 689GB HDD, HM77, Nvidia 540M GT). I have installed all latest drivers for my laptop from Dell website. But those are still more than 6 months old. When I use Intel Driver update utility, it shows new version of drivers available. Even my nvidia control panel shows new driver available.
Is it Okay to update drivers from intel and nvidia website and replace drivers from Dell. I heard that Dell mods the drivers for thier laptops before supplying to thier users.

A:Should I update my stock Dell Drivers to Intel Drivers.

S"hould you", that is up to you, but the Intel drivers are the best for your computer. If you decide to change your drivers, start with a system restore point.
If you are not having specific problems, you probably will not notice any improvement however.

I am constantly having this problem with my laptop. As I plug in and unplug my headphones throughout the day, I've noticed that after a couple times the bass gets really quiet and almost completely drops out. Since I have some pretty decent audiophile headphones with really great bass, it is super annoying and noticeable. 
One workaround I have discovered is to go to the audio settings (either in Windows or the Dell Audio app), and switch the Default Format (the thing with 24-bit, 48000Hz in it)  to something else, play some audio, then switch it back. 
A little word on my setup: I have the latest drivers from the Dell download page installed. I am running Windows 10 64-bit with all the updates. I have Waves Maxx audio "enhancements" disabled. My Default Format is usually set to 24-bit 48000Hz, but the problem eventually happens no matter what I set it to. The "headphone size" option is set to "Medium", but as far as I can tell this option does nothing if I do not have Waves Maxx enabled. Switching it also does not fix the problem.
If I play audio using WASAPI (this basically means that the music player takes over the sound card completely, and bypasses whatever audio processing Windows and the driver has) the problem does not happen. 
How do I fix this problem? It's incredibly annoying, and most likely has something to do with the audio driver, since this does not happen in Linux, and it did not happen when I was runn... Read more

Hleping a friend who had so many viruses on his Dell B130 laptop that all we could do was to wipe it clean and reinstall windows. He does not have a driver disk so I went to Dell's support page and found all that I need. The problem is that I don't have internet access on the laptop that was reformatted. I tried to download to my computer but it wants to install the drivers.

How can I save the Dell drivers to a folder or even to a disk so that I can install and finish this installation?

I thought this would be easy as all the drivers are on Dell's site.

I tried to get to Chat with Dell and could not due to the computers service being over.

Thank you for any and all suggestions.

Hello!I recently bought a Dell Inspiron 15r Special Edition with Windows 8 as it's default operating system. Since I don't like it that much, I plan to format the hard drive (by going into computer-> Right click on C: -> Format) and then to do a clean install of Windows 7 Home Premium on it.After the clean installation procedure, I was wondering if I could simply insert the Dell Drivers and Utilities disc into the optical drive and intall the drivers like I would normally do.Therefore, the real question would be: Will the Windows 8 drivers provided by Dell be compatible with Windows 7?Thank you very much everyone.FatLord

I did find this one "Inspiron 15R SE 7520" If that is your model then the Dell website has Windows 7 64bit drivers and Windows 8 64 bit drivers available for download.

I would use the Windows 7 Drivers for windows 7, Just download them ahead of time and burn them to a CD or store on a flash drive so you will have them handy to use.

I would also have my Antivirus ready to install before I went on the Internet.

3rd point. Windows will prevent you from formatting the drive it is installed on. So you have to do it during the install process.

Hey Guys,

I just installed a fresh copy of XP on a Dell Dimension 8300 after wiping out the hard drive. Everything went smoothly until the end. Under device manager >> Other devices...... the Ethernet Controller, Multimedia Audio Controller, Multimedia Controller, and USB controller don't seem to be installed. I checked the Ethernet one and it says no drivers. I would try get it from online but I can't get online due to the NIC. Any ideas on where I would be able to get the drivers?

I tried the following page but even after downloading the driver, it still doesn't work.

There is a CD called Dell drivers and diagnostics that came with the PC and all the other drivers worked except this one. I'm pretty much going into Device Manager and tried right clicking then properties then install driver then point to the CD. I also tried update drivers. No luck.

I think I have the correct driver but maybe installing it wrong?

The short version of my question is exactly what the topic says-- Can I install a Dell-provided OEM version of Vista on a non-Dell computer?

But, here's the wordier version giving context, if anyone's interested.

About 10 months ago, I guess, I got a Dell Vostro that came with Windows Vista Home Basic. However, I had no interest in Vista (because I already had a Windows machine) and the very first thing I did was install Ubuntu on it. I still have the Vista reinstall disk, though, which, to my memory, hasn't been used.

Now I'm planning on getting a barebones system and upgrading what I see fit. For the time being, I'm going to use the Windows 7 RC, but I'd like to get the uber-great upgrade deal that they're having to pre-order either the Business or Home Premium version upgrade. So, to do that, I'd need an XP installation or a Vista installation. Is there any reason, legal or software-related, that I wouldn't be able to install Vista using that disk that came with the Vostro?

I heard somewhere that sometimes if you try, it'll say something like "This is not a Dell computer, you evil, evil person" and refuse to install, so I wanted to make sure before I pre-ordered the upgrade. I don't want to get the upgrade and have nothing to upgrade, of course.

I have a Dell Inspiron 1520 laptop with Windows Vista OS. I have a Dell 926 printer interfaced to it via USB. Printer driver is installed and the printer does communicate at times with the computer and does a good job printing. However, intermittently when trying to print a document I'll get a message on the computer that says that communication has been lost and print job failed.

I've checked all connections to make sure they are solid and no debris that might cause this.
That has not corrected the problem.
The other thing that happens is that the document I want to print will stay in the print queue/spooler and if I shut the computer and printer down and restart both it will print the job. And it may continue to print jobs but it's just a matter of time.

Needless to say this is frustrating. I can print several jobs in a row with no problem and then I'll get this "communication has been lost between printer and computer". And I have to go thru the procedure above to get the last job printed.

My wife doesn't understand how this works and will try to print the same job several times with the commo problem and then complains when it won't print.....and then they all print when the above procedure is followed.

Any ideas what is going on??? Any fixes??

A:Dell Studio XP Drivers?

A lot of prebuilt resellers are doing the whole "we're not offering Windows whatever drivers" hogwash on their websites, even if the hardware itself is compatible. I've found this with my laptop (Asus F3 series) and with my gaming rig (Asus M2N SLI Deluxe).

Usually, however, if you find the manufacturer of the hardware component itself, you can find some generic drivers or manufacturers drivers that will function.

Considering that Dell has a "switch to XP for $50" option on a lot of their desktops, I imagine you shouldn't have too much trouble.

As for your video card, there are a few sites that specialize in making generic drivers for mobile chipsets. The problem with mobile chipsets is that often a vendor will to lock you into using only their drivers, rather than the OEM drivers from ATI/AMD or Nvidia. That's why those third party sites exist.

I'd worry about the other components of your laptop more than the video card.

A:dell m1330 drivers

Hi there

I googled it up for you and i found the following post by snowbro that lists all the drivers necessary for your system with corresponding links to each. Also, most of the drivers on the dell website are designed to work for all versions of Windows. So if you choose to, you can just download off of that site you were just at. Each driver, when you click on it, has a "compatability" section in its designated page, and here you will find that most have "XP" listed there.

FIRST, I'd recommend installing the Intel Mobile Chipset drivers from the Dell website:

SECOND, I'd recommend installing the latest nVidia drivers v169.09 from here:
Don't forget to download and copy over the modded file nv4_disp.inf BEFORE running the driver installation!

THIRD, you should go download and install the following from the Dell Support website for the m1330 and Windows XP:

i am working on a dell inspiron e1505. i had to totally wipe it out and reformat due to a virus. now i am having trouble finding the right drivers for this machine. i have been to the dell sights and can't seem to find what i need. they want to download the drivers directly to the machine which doesn't have ethernet drivers so i can't get on the internet to download this way. i found a sight for a recovery cd called diskbuilderburner cd and is suppose to do what i was needing but i get an error when i try and run it. it says app failed to start because the app configuration is incorrect. try reinstalling the app which i have done several times and get the same error. i have tried several sights and can't seem to find the drivers i need. do u have any suggestions? thanks in advance for your help.

Hi guys I just wanted to know is there any way of installing the drivers for this monitor. I was given the monitor by a family member, but unfortunately I did not have the drivers to go with it is there any way of getting a USB driver I have tried many websites, but they seem they do not have the drivers I need. Please help

Drivers should just work but you need to plug a Usb cable from the monitor into a usb port in the tower.

I have dell n5010 machine running 32 bit of windows 7....i couldn;t find supporting drivers at Dell wesbite as Dell provides drivers only for the 64 bit on its website....Can someone help me what can i do ...

A:Drivers for Dell N5010

All you need to do is get the drivers form the source. I just installed Windows 7 x64 Home Premium on one of these laptops last week. Windows 7 finds most of what you need, but the chipset drivers can be found at and then you should know the rest of the hardware...and where to find them. Intel or Nvidia or ATI for graphics depending on how you configured the laptop.

Anytime you are installing an OS that isn't listed on Dell's site, just go to each part manufacturer's webpage to find the drivers you need. For example, if you have an Intel Wireless card, go to and download the drivers for the model you have. People make this out to be a challenge, but it's actually very simple.

I like to work under the thinkg that if it isn't broken don't fix it.

If your unhappy with the graphics prefromance now then I would probably install their new driver.

Sort of a stupid question, but I'd rather ask and not need to ask later.

I'm reinstalling Windows this weekend (srly) and I'm grabbing drivers from Dell for my laptop. I've grabbed all of the Chipset ones, audio, ALPs, video, and network. I'd like to not install drivers I don't need (old computer, don't need stuff lugging it down). So I'm positive I don't want the Dell QuickSet one, but I don't know about a bunch of the others...

Do I need the BIOS download?
Do I need the Communications downloads?
Do I need the Diagnostics downloads?
Do I need the System Utilities download?

Also, when I switch the hard-disk out of the tray to my new hard-drive, do I have to worry about static? If so, best way to deal?

The college I go's Computer Lab has a eBay account in which they sell used PC's that are surplus or no longer used. I bought a Dell Optiplex 780 from them. Since I was in class today and the auction ended today just 30 minutes before class, I snagged the only bid of $40. Now all the computers in the computer lab are this model and run Windows 7. I was told that Windows 7 is native to this desktop. It came with Windows 7 Pro, but if you know me, I am all about personalization so I wiped the PC clean by deleting the partitions using GParted and installed w7 myself. It says it has all the drivers except 2. technically it needs 3. The system claims that the Video drivers are already installed, but I cannot achieved a higher resolution than 1280x1024 on a 1080p (1920x1080) monitor.

I have searched everywhere for the correct drivers to install XP Pro on my new Dell Inspiron 15 (3521) but have not found the correct one.

I have downloaded the nlite software to make a new XP cd with the correct SATA drivers for XP pro but can not seem to find the correct driver that will let me install XP on the SATA hdd.

Reason for going backward in OS is the main program I use in my work will not work on anything but xp pro and windows 7 Pro.

I had the dealer where I bought the laptop, to install from Windows 8, which came on the laptop, back to windows 7 Pro and it appears that all the "things" are not there in the windows 7 pro, for much of anything to work except what seems to be just the "basics" of Windows 7. My work program will not work either.

Guess I should have asked for XP Pro at the dealer.

Anyone know which exact driver or drivers I need to get to intergrate with the XP pro OS?

Hi all
I have been trying, for the last 2 days, to install Win 7 (64 bit) to my Dell XPS 720. I performed the pre-install check and it reported no problems. As I was going from Vista 32 bit to Win7 64 bit I knew I would have to perform a clean install.

I have installed about 6 times over the last couple of days and the system seems fine for maybe 20 minutes at which point one of two things happens.


1. it reboots after a brief blue screen message regarding BAD_POOL_HEADER (too quick to read)

2. it hangs and performs a dump with a BSOD regarding NVSTOR.SYS

I'm assuming that the problem is with the NVSTOR.SYS driver(s) for the motherboard NVIDIA RAID arrays. I have 4 disks in 2 RAID 0 arrays of a 1TB each.
Dell does not list the PC as Win 7 compatible and there are no Win7 64 bit RAID drivers listed although it does list Vista 64 bit drivers as a download. I have tried these but Win7 doesn't seem to want to update the driver saying I already have the latest drivers installed (from the Windows 7 DVD).

Anyone else had this problem and been able to cure it. I'm writing this from the PC with the 32 bit version installed and working fine. I need 64 bit to address the 8gb of memory for some very intensive video and photoshop work I do.

You should find all the drivers at Dell:

One of my comps is a 4600, and I have the Driver CD, but can't figure any way to extract what you need. Can't find anything but an install option.

The CD also checks your system to determine the installed hardware.

So I have a Dell SmartPC200D that needs a complete wipe to remove the malware infesting the hdd. Thing is, I can't locate the drivers for the thing online. Where to go next?
The closest thing I can find on Dell's site is '150D' and '300D' drivers, but who's to know what could go wrong by using the wrong set of system drivers... It's worth noting the system was purchased in China; therefore Dell USA (English!) doesn't offer tech. support in any form. According to them help is just a toll phone call away to Kuala Lampur. Does any helpful folk here know what the Americanized equivalent of this box is called and if the drivers will work? Thanks in advance.

Have a Dell Inspiron 3800, Win 2000, that is no longer seeing the CD rom but it does show up in the bios, verified by this by swapping it out with floppy drive and another cd rom drive. Unit has swappable drive bay. At the same time the unit is trapped in a boot loop when you start it up. You can boot it with a boot disk but that is it, without access to the CD you can not load anything to repair windows. Have tried both the repair console and starting insafe mode with no luck.

Is it possible to somehow get cd drivers loaded by an alternative method.
