Hi,

I'm new here and not able to pm yet. I saw a closed thread about this same issue. I have software that only runs on Windows XP. My Dell Inspiron N5050 has Windows 7 on it. I need the drivers for Window XP and any other information you think would be helpful I'd appreciate. I've never changed platforms on a computer before. Thanks in advance!

A:Looking for Dell Inspiron N5050 Drivers for XP

If Dell Kris sees your thread, he/she may be able to help you.

------------------------------------------------------------

Since you're downgrading from Windows 7 to Windows XP, I have doubts that the bluetooth and webcam devices will have drivers and will work.

You're lucky there are Windows XP drivers for the graphics and audio and ethernet/wireless devices - the primary ones.

Hello fellow forum users, I have a problem on my hands I haven't been able to figure out myself in anyway. When I try to connect the bluetooth on my laptop (a Dell Inspiron 15 N5050) to my family room bluetooth sound system to play music through the system, it finds it in the "add device" section. However, as soon as it tries to connect to the system it always fails in some way. It's told me many things before. If it does add it it complains about no drivers? I've got all the correct drivers (I think I got them all at least) and yet it says something like no drivers found for the speaker system. This started to happen when I wiped the HDD for the laptop to help it's performance speed (helped a lot) and after reinstalling Windows 7 Ultimate x64, this is now the only problem I have. I'll attach a few pictures... Thanks in advance. Also the WiFi+Bluetooth card is a Dell Wireless 1701 Half size card. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance(again).

A:Dell Inspiron 15 N5050 No Bluetooth Audio Drivers?

That sounds like a problem with the Vizio (no drivers) rather than a driver problem in the PC.

Have you checked Vizio to see if they have any Windows drivers?

In case it is a PC driver issue, make sure you have all the drivers installed from Dell.
Product Support | Dell US

BTW, avoid Windows 10 on this model. Dell has a note that they do not support Win 10 for this model.

Just got a new Dell Inspiron N5050 laptop.
Using it about 3 weeks and loving it.
Pop up window invited me to update Windows. Clicked Yes.
While  update was in progress, I accidently turned it off.
Now, It boots up, but moments afterward, it goes to Blue Screen of Death and, before I can even read the Blue Screen, it goes to Black Screen and asks how I would like to start up - Normal startup - Safe mode - Safe Mode with Prompts, etc.
So I want to restore it to an earlier time or just restore back to the beginning (factory settings).
Can I do this in one of the start up options on the Black Screen?

There was a thread on this it is considered closed, however there is no info on where to get the drivers on the thread.. If anyone has a link to get the driver for the Dell N5050 (Wndows XP 32bit) any help will be appreciated..

Thank you..

Drivers still missing are:

Dell Wireless 1701 Bluetooth.

PCI Simple communication Controller

Thank you for helping out.
 

A:Dell N5050 Drivers for Windows XP 32Bit

As you have found out, Dell doesn't offer drivers for XP, but there is a chance you might find drivers elsewhere. First we need to find out who makes the hardware and their part number for it.

Open Device Manager and double click on the device name for one of the unknown ? or ! devices, then in the Properties display click the Details tab, then choose Hardware Ids in the Property drop down menu.

You should see a text string similar to this: PCI\VEN_10EC&DEV_8168&SUBSYS_75491462&REV_02

The four digit number after PCI\VEN identifies the manufacturer and the four digit number after DEV identifies the device type. The number after SUBSYS is usually specific to the motherboard or card using the device.

Do this for each device that doesn't work, then copy and paste the text strings here so we can help to locate drivers.

A:Can you upgrade a Dell Inspiron N5050?

Yes you can upgrade to the intel 2540m Mobile processor, same socket..   
First thing you do is go to Intel ARK and compare your processor with other processors you would like to upgrade to.. .All the info you need to upgrade is there at the ARK website. There you will find socket info  Then you get some- Coollaboratory Liquid PRO Thermal Interface Material ..And on a Mobil processor you use a micro drop making the processor look like a mirror without any excess left on the processor. If you get to much on the processor you just suck it back into the needle so its not wasted . Spread the liquid Pro with a Q tip vigorously moving it around till its covered .Then remove the excess with a q tip   Then replace the heat sink by putting it in place over the processor match the holes with the screws then place it holding it down while you tighten the crews ..You can watch Liquid Pro being applied on you tube or go to the Coollaboratory website and see it there .. Liquid Pro is the best don't use their liquid ultra .. Its not as good.

Run the built-in self test on the LCD -- hold D through powerup.  If you see the same fault, it's likely a bad screen. If not, it's either a bad video cable or a bad GPU -- replace the cable first.  If that doesn't solve it, the GPU is bad -  which means a replacement mainboard (or on a system of this one's age, a new system).

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

A:black screen pxe-e61 error for inspiron n5050 windows 7

Hi nombie88,
Please run the diagnostics to confirm the hardware functionality. Here are the steps for it:

Tap the F12 key on startup.
Use the Arrow keys to highlight the Diagnostics option. 
The Diagnostics starts running the quick test without waiting for user input.
To select a specific device to test, you can tap the Esc key.
Please make a note of any error message that appears on the screen, also make sure that you note down the validation code too.
Once quick test completes, please run a thorough test on the hard drive by selecting the 'Thorough' under Test Mode option.
Please make a note of end result of diagnostics. 

If the diagnostics pass, lets check if the hard drive is getting detected. Here are the steps to check that: 


Boot to BIOS, by tapping the F12 key on the startup.
Please check under the Main tab, if the hard drive is getting detected as shown in image below:


Please share the findings.

After doing a million (feels like it) fixes from the very many articles and posts about how to fix Windows 10 update problems, I have finally got Windows 10 installed on my husband's laptop.  There is only one problem:  it won't complete a reboot after a Restart.  It will reboot after powering off and back on.  I am hoping that someone might have a fix for this.  I did read that Dell is saying this laptop is not compatible with Win 10.  My husband swears that he did not tell Microsoft to go ahead with the upgrade and we have discovered that this was true of many other users as well. 
I have done the following fixes already: reinstalled an updated driver for the display adapter, uninstalled any software that generated errors in the Windows event log (like HP Support Framework), changed a number of Start up Services to be manual (like Malware Bytes, which is not the anti-virus software in use, however, I did use it to scan the computer for viruses), increased the permissions on the Windows folder, reinstalled Win 10 using CD created by Windows Media Creator, turned off the Fast Restart in Power settings,  uninstalled the IDT Audio driver, ran the sfc /scannow and the DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image Scanhealth and probably more.
So anyone have other suggestions? Thanks!

I have the Dell Inspiron N5050 and want to install Windows 10.
BUT............
On their site the statement says....
Product not tested for Windows 10 upgrade
Dell is not testing or developing Windows 10 drivers for this product.
If you choose to upgrade, some features, applications, and connected devices may not work as expected.
We buy Dell thinking they are the best, this is very disappointing.  Any ideas what to do?

A:Dell N5050 and windows 10

I have had a big Problem with the video drivers in windows 10 and i have even tried compatibility mode as well and the same results all i can say is put windows 8 on there and leave it at that until dell comes up with windows 10 drivers this has been the day from *** for me i have had windows 10 on here for a few months now and all of a sudden the video driver's do not want to work .so i have come to the conclusion that windows 10 does not work on this laptop as of the present time  but windows seven will be fine.even tho Microsoft doesn't support it anymore.and like you i am very disappointed in dell they have some of the best computers that is why people buy the pc's they have i have an older dell XPS that i have had for a long time and windows 10 works great on that but it has Nvidia video drivers not Intel.

This was bought as a Christmas present for my sister in 2011. About once a year I give it a "once over" to keep software up to date, and a couple of years back I swapped over the WiFi mini-board so that I could upgrade it to Windows 10.  It's been great most of the time, perfectly suiting my sister's light-user needs. However, since installing the W10 the Creator's update a few days ago, 2 of the 3 USB ports no longer work. I want to see if a BIOS and/or chipset driver upgrade will fix this but the BIOS flash update programme to install A14 will not run under Windows 10. (Gives error code 00000406). Any ideas on how to force a BIOS upgrade in this scenario?
The machine is an Inspiron 1575, exact version is Inspiron N5050.
Thanks in anticipation

Steve

Can someone point to me where the Windows 10 drivers for Inspiron 3543 is shown?
The support page shows drivers for BIOS, Not applicable and Windows 8.1 .

In the supported OS it shows from Windows 7 to 8.1.

And the information is again contradicting in the list of devices supported for Windows 10 Creator update :

When I tried to contact technical support, they told that the system is not compatible with Windows 10 ???

So where is the list of Windows 10 Creator Update drivers for Dell Inspiron 3543?
I had seen the list previously, but now the list is gone!

Apparently all my drivers work, other than the "Multimedia Audio Controller", "Network Controller" and the "Video Controller". If anyone knows for sure what site I need to go to get these drivers, I would very much so appreciate it if you could kindly share your answer with me... I feel just as upset & pissed as you were, when the person who sold u Win. 7 said " OOOHHH YEAH, Windows 7 will work great on your computer with no problems," so u trust them and then shell out the 120.00 bucks for the upgrade and now we r sitting here hoping someone knows something about how we can fix the problem we created, for trusting some idiot, who is laughing at us cuz he had no clue what in the hell he is talking about... So, hopefully there is a kind soul out there that can help this mad old soul of mine.. Thank you, Rollin007

Hello,
With this post I would like to clarify if there is a solution for the USB 3.0 drivers on Windows 10 for my laptop? During the last two years had upgraded my laptop from windows 7, then to windows 8 and 8.1 and at latest to Windows 10. After the first upgrade to windows 10, USB 3.0 ports were working (with some faults, but at least sometimes working). Always were using the USB 3.0 driver from the dell support page for windows 7. Since the newest version of windows 10 is now installed, the driver became not compatible with windows 10. I know, that the technologies are moving always forward, but it is sad that the 4 years laptop may loose such simple funcions, when it is still may cover my needs.

This is a long standing question. Which drivers should I use? I have graphical issues with the current Drivers from Dell.
Any ideas what are the advantages of Dell's drivers over the ones from Intel/NVIDIA web site and do the even work? What will I lose if I use the latter?

A:Inspiron 7567 which drivers? Dell drivers or Intel/NVIDIA graphics drivers?

Dell drivers are Intel/Nvidia drivers that are customized for your exact model and should be used. They are available at Dell Support if you have to reinstall.
