Dell Vostro 1400 Bluetooth Problem

Q: Dell Vostro 1400 Bluetooth Problem

Hello guys & girls,

I'm unable to get the in-built bluetooth function working on Dell Vostro 1400 laptop. I have perused Dell forums to no avail. I have downloaded the machines bluetooth driver & have located a couple of patches via said forum but all to no avail.

I've uninstalled & re-installed the Widdcomm software too even via a direct route by drilling down to the folders in the OS in my case it's C:\dell\drivers\R140135\3100_216\Win32 & have even tried utulising the laptop's drivers cd to load bluetooth from that. Again no luck.

Anyway thanks for looking in & if there are some Dell engineers taking a look here then I appreciate any help you may have also.

Thanks in advance

Hi,
Can you tell me that which Os is more stable on Vostro 1400 notebook.
 

A:Which one is best OS for Dell vostro 1400 ???

This usually ships with Vista basic - which is as much use as a chocolate teapot. You can upgrade to vista premium or bite the downgrade bullet and take it to an OS XP Home or PRo that is established with at least 3 service packs. You don't include any specs - so answers may be vague as a result. Give us PC info. and we may be ale to help.

I have a Vostro 1400 which runs with Vista Business.

It has stopped working properly all of a sudden. It starts up ok, I enter my password ok and it goes onto my desktop ok. But when I click on anything, whether it be an icon or the Start menu, it just freezes.

It's working fine in Safe mode. I've tried System Restore and CCleaner.

I have a feeling it might be when I tried to plug in a camera into the USB when it was shutting down (I didn't know it was shutting down). It might not be that, but that's when it started.

Help anyone???

Hi,

I just installed a fresh copy of Windows 10 Pro on my Dell Vostro 1400 laptop. Everything works fine except I can't hear any audio from my speakers. When I plug in the earphones then audio works fine. 
I previously had Windows 8.1 and the speakers worked flawlessly there. Now when I tried to install the http://www.dell.com/support/home/us/en/19/Drivers/DriversDetails?driverId=NN9X1&fileId=3327213123&osCode=WW1&productCode=vostro-1400&languageCode=EN&categoryId=AU it threw an " Error: ExitError:Error=Device Object not present ". I tried uninstalling the current drivers, then reinstalling them but that didnt work. I think if I could get the Sigmatel audio drivers installed then my audio would be back but I wasn't able to fix this error.
If anyone has any ideas how to fix this I would really appreciate it!
Thanks,

A:No Audio Dell Vostro 1400 - Windows 10.

Sorry for late reply -- must have overlooked your post.
MrAudioProblemtried to install the http://www.dell.com/support/home/us/en/19/Drivers/DriversDetails?driverId=NN9X1&fileId=3327213123&osCode=WW1&productCode=vostro-1400&languageCode=EN&categoryId=AU 
That's an XP driver. Win10 is supposed to work with Win7 and 8.1 drivers, so Win10 might not be a good fit with the Vostro 1400. Try the Vista version, Sigmatel R171786. Download the driver package and extract the files (unzip or unpack and make a note of the name of the folder that is created) but cancel the installation process. Go to the folder on the hard drive to which you unpacked the driver files which should bec:\Dell\Drivers\R171786
Find the setup.exe file and right click on it. Select the Properties. Find the compatibility tab and select Vista.
If still no luck then I would advise you to revert to Win8.1.

Hi,

I'm in the process of replacing the screen on my old Dell Vostro 1400. However, as I would like to buy it used (for obvious reasons) it's hard to find the exact part number I want at the right price so I was wondering which part numbers would be a good replacement the part number on my current screen is LTN141W1-L09 (Dell Part Number: 0DM110). Firstly, I was wondering what the part after the hyphen meant in the model Number. Also, can I replace this screen with one with a lower resolution or different aspect ratio?

I've also noticed that latitude D600 series shares a lot of hardware with the Vostro 1400 would any screen from there be compatible?

Thanks for reading
 

A:Replacing Screen On Dell Vostro 1400

I would think that when you replace a screen it should be the exact same one as the original. you might find what you need on ebay as im sure someone might be selling one for parts or repair only.ive never replaced screens yet in my laptops because by the time they have gone bad it was more to fix it than the computer was worth.you might also check with a computer repair place they might have what you are looking for or tell you where to find the correct screen for that model.

I have had a Vostro 1400 with a C2D cpu for about 1.75 years now and just today I started to get a high pitched whine from the back left (right where the fan is).

I've tried using compressed air to clear out the fan, no luck. The Whine is from the back left right at the air vent. (Vostro 1400)

I disabled popup and popdown, disabled c4, tried HLT.. no luck anywhere. Whine is not just in Windows, as soon as cpu starts the Whine starts. Thoughts?

Vistra froze thanks to RMclock, but when I restarted I noticed the Whine did not begin until I chose Boot Windows Normally, b4 that nothing.. Whine was almost immediate after

I then tested out the PSA boot method through the beep sequences. It came up with an optical drive error, which I can really doubt. I've unmounted the optical drive and thoroughly inspected it, but I couldn't imagine it being the problem here.

I then hooked it up through my PC external monitor, and got some video out of it. It goes through the boot start up and then hangs for a good 3-5 minutes before displaying an error message that reads:

Small annoyance -

As the title says, I have Dell Vostro 1400 w/Vista Business. Using just the laptop monitor. I set the video resolution (as it was when it arrived) at 1200 x 800. Now, it changes to 1024 x 800 when the computer is put to sleep and the awakes. I can set it back to 1200 x 800 and it works fine. Anyone have any ideas? It is small so it drives me a little nuts.

Dear Tech Guys,

I'm admittedly not great with computers but I'm trying to learn, so here we go:

I'm having trouble connecting to the wireless network in my new home using Windows Vista on a Dell Vostro 1400. Confounding factors:

1) My roommates are connecting without any problems
2) The computer will connect occasionally, but just as frequently disconnects so I'm using internet through the wireless in frustrating 5 minute intervals and I never know when it will decide to shut off or on again. It is incredibly spotty.

My boyfriend tried to fix it a few days ago and I'm not sure what he did or if it affected anything, but for the past few days the wireless hasn't connected at all, even for a few minutes like it was before.

3) The network sharing center shows me as being connected and getting great signal but it's clearly not. I tried all of the options it has given me---resetting network adapters, restarting the computer on multiple occasions, but it still gives the same feedback that "there is still a problem" basically.

I tried walking through some of this:
http://forums.techguy.org/networking/902843-solved-stuck-acquiring-network-address.html

My 4 year old Dell vostro 1400, a carryover from my son's college days, has stopped reading and writing DVDs, though it reads and writes the CDs perfectly.

I replaced the DVD drive with a new Optiarc internal DVD writer. This new Optiarc has worked for about six months and then again same problem not reading and writing DVDs only.

Is the problem with the DVD writer or with the laptop? I am apprehensive to replace the DVD writer again.

By the way the OS is Windows XP professional.

A:Dell Vostro 1400 laptop internal DVD writer not reading/writing DVDs..

Normally it can be attributed to the laser burning out. The drive uses a different wavelength to do CDs than DVDs. They often don't burn out like a light bulb but just can't do the higher wavelengths.

Optical drives are notorious for sudden failure. On a desktop it's no big deal - a $20 repair. But a laptop is expensive to do replacements on. I'd be bumming too.

Curious (dealing with a similar issue with a laptop here):
When you go into Device Manager and check the properties of that Optiarc drive, is the name 'garbled'?

Most likely it's a video card problem, although it could be the cable to your monitor or the monitor itself.
Check to be sure that the fans are working and that there's not dirt/dust stuck inside (use canned air to blow it out - DO NOT use a vacuum or an air compressor, it'll cause damage)

My old Vostro 1400 display goes black shortly after startup.  External monitor works fine, and the image is visible on the screen if I shine a bright light on it.  So, I conclude that either the lamp driver or the bulb is bad, am going to try repairing but don't know where to get these parts.  Options for my computers tag don't show these parts.

A:Vostro 1400 Display Failure

You'd have to try EBay - - or replace both the screen and the inverter together, which is likely the best option.
There was once a time when replacing the bulb or inverter made economic sense because of the cost of LCD panels -- it no longer does.  You can easily replace the screen and inverter for well under $100.

A:Vostro 1400 audio driver for windows 7

Try installing the Sigmatel HD audio driver. There is not one for Windows 7 so you must use the Vista version and install using Vista compatibility mode.
Download the driver package using the browser, not Dell Download Manager. Extract the files (unzip or unpack) but cancel the installation process. Go to the hard drive to c:\Dell\Drivers\R171786   (This is the folder that is created when you unpack the download. It contains the driver files.)Right click on setup.exe and select Properties.

A:Vostro 1400 with Win 7 64 bit video driver needed

When you say you "upgraded" your Vostro 1400, what upgrade did you perform?  If you replaced the GPU (assuming it's removable in that system) or replaced the motherboard with a version that has a different GPU built in (assuming that system was available with more than one GPU configuration), you'd need to download and install the correct drivers for your new hardware. You can find them at support.dell.com, although I would manually select your system model rather than entering your Service Tag.

Hi,
I have a Dell Vostro running Windows Vista. I've had several issues lately. I've tried Malware Bytes but that really didn't help. Here's what's happenning:
The computer is running very slow, when I click on a link or page tab (in any browser) I have to wait several seconds for the page to change. Closing brower windows takes several minutes. I've had the blue screen of death a couple of times that last few months. When I try to open a program, the response is very slow and I have to wait several minutes for it to start and at times it stops working. I don't know if I have too many things running or not and I wouldn't know what to disable so I didn't mess around with that stuff.

Dear friends,
I am using a Dell Vostro 1000 laptop. Its about a year old. The laptop has a wireless mini card which can be turned on with the Function key (fn+f2). This was working properly until a few months back, when the computer failed to respond to the fn+f2 command. I had to open Dell's wireless card utility to turn on and off the wifi. I assumed it to be a problem with Dell Quickset as this problem cropped up after I opened dell quickset for the first time and closed it. I re-installed quickset but the same problem persists. Curiously, when I open network connections and disable the wireless connection, the wi-fi light illuminates. No idea why this happens. Can anyone shed light on this issue?

It runs MSE and Superantispyware Pro I checked the logs and it is showing nothing. I also run Malwarebytes manually once a week

It would work. Then about an hour later (plugged in). Everything locked up. No keyboard no mouse worked. He would shut it off with the button and turn it on and the HD was reading but it dropped dead at the dell bios screen and would not move.
The only way was again to shut it down
He then gave it to me to see what could be wrong
I booted it up, it went into windows 7, so I thought it was fine. It was plugged in. Sure enough an hour later did exactly what he told me it did
Shut it off. Same thing sat at bios login.
So I rebooted it again and after 10 minutes it finally loaded windows 7 but, try to login and it had a mind of its own.

A:Dell vostro laptop problem

I had a Vostro 1520 in 2009 that did pretty much the same thing. Dell eventually replaced the motherboard under warranty and it worked for a few more months. Then it started acting up again and by then it was out of warranty. I replaced it with a Sony Vaio. Since your client's machine is still under a service contract I'd let Dell have a go at it. From personal experience dealing with Dell, I'd just give them the basic info (computer stops working after an hour) and not offer any opinions as to what you think might be wrong. Let them do their own diagnostics because otherwise they may just check "a", "b", and "c" (what you or your client have told them you suspect) and not bother checking "x", "y", and "z" (the real problems.)

I can not get it to recognize the connected cable. The router works with other computers, the cable works with other computers, and my computer says the adapeter is working properly. I uninstaled and reinstalled and udated driveers. Same results. The adapter is a Realtec PCIe GBE Family controller. When I go to advanced properties, I see many options of things to enable or disable. They are greek to me. I feel something is not enabled correctly. Can anyone tell the the correct setup to get this to work?
Thanks,
Bill

Dell Vostro 1550 2nd Gen Ci3/ 2GB/ 320GB/ Linux Laptop (Slate Grey)(Dell Branded Backpack, 1 Year Complete Cover Accidental Damage Protection ) .
Since the RAM is 2GB i felt to upgrade it , So  i planned to buy  a compatible another 2GB RAM.   Before buying i just felt to check wether my dell laptop has two slots as the model suppossed to have. So i disassembled the laptop and found that,  it had 2 slots for ram(1- already occupied with 2GB RAM).
When i removed the RAM from first slot and put in second slot , my laptop doesn't turn on!!! (I'm sure i placed the RAM correctly). When i placed the RAM in old slot my laptop work fine!!!!
What would be the issue how to solve this!!!!!!!!!!  Is there any setting for the  processor to access other RAM SLOT . PLEASE HELP ME WITH THIS !!!  Thanks in Advance!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

maildangky142,Adjust your power settings. Right click on your desktop, then go to personalize. Then go to screen savers, and click on power settings. This is where you can adjust how long it takes for the computer to sleep, just change it to never and save the changes Also, right click desktop and choose Display Settings, then choose Change Advanced Power Settings.  Click on hard drive and change the sleep settings. You can also click on the sleep section and change them to never sleep as well.

Hi guys

I've a dell vostro 3300, when I plug my headphones in there's sound coming from the headphones but the sound still comes from the speakers on my laptop! Does anyone know how I could go about fixing this?

A:Dell vostro 3300 headphones problem?

First question, do you have the Dell IDT sound driver for this model installed? Or do you have the generic basic function Windows installed "HD Audio Codec"? Check the Device Manager and it will list what you have.

If you do not have the correct Dell IDT driver, that needs to be installed, and the HD Audio Codec or whatever you have now needs to be uninstalled (first).

Hey all, Happy Holidays to everyone

Someone I know has got a Dell Vostro 1000 laptop and for some reason the laptop says that the battery/charger is undetected and then the charger can't charge the batter. I took out the batter and blew out the terminals that connect it to the laptop and that didn't help. I did notice that the battery said a voltage of about 14.5v on it. I have looked at batteries on the internet and they all seem to say that it should be 11.1v for that laptop. I then looked at the charger and it said 19.5v on it. Now in my mind that sounds a little odd as this laptop now has 3 different voltages all before the VRM's.
Basically I was just wondering if any one could shed some light on this problem and why the voltages are like this.

Thanks, Jack-O-Bytes

Recently, I've tried to turn on my Vostro 1014 but it got stuck at the Window logo for so long. This happened after I finished the configuring cycles which keep on repeating for more than five times.
Kindly revert back to me with advise asap as I urgently am running for a dateline.
Thank you Dell Team. :)
