Vostro 1400 audio driver for windows 7

Q: Vostro 1400 audio driver for windows 7

Where can I get Vostro 1400 Audio Driver for Windows 7 32 bit.

Preferred Solution: Vostro 1400 audio driver for windows 7

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

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. Find the compatibility tab to select Vista.

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!

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.

i upgraded my vostro 1400 and now the video driver cant be found

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.

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:
and from what I can tell, everything LOOKS fine. In the past I have connected to other wireless networks without issue, though things on my computer may have changed since then...but I doubt it.
I'm not sure what to do, I have scoured the internet but to no avail. Can anyone h... Read more

I want to put Windows 10 on my Vostro 1400, after I replace the hard drive I see Windows 10 disc on Amazon for $around $60. Is that a good idea? I also see XP Pro (Is that obsolete) for around $10. Everything I need seems to work with my current Vista OS, but the hardrive is bad so I wouldn’t mind a little upgrade, without spending much. It’s an old computer.

A:New OS for old Vostro 1400

Thank you for writing to us!
Firstly this system is no tested with windows 10, we would not suggest you to force upgrade the system as you will not have the appropriate drivers for the same which will give you more issues.

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???

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.

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)

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.

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

When I got the laptop from her I booted it up and there was no video, just a blank screen. It indicates HDD activity but nothing displayed. 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:

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.

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'?

Hello and welcome to TSG. Firstly, you might like to edit out your e-mail address in case the Spam brigade gets hold of it. All your replies will be through ths Forum.

Somewhere on the casing of your Dell machine will be the Service Tag reference number. If you input that at the Dell website, their system wil then identify your computer and tell you exactly what they put into it. Because they customise so much, they invented that system for just this purpose. Do that and you get the driver for the precise audio equipment they put in but, obviously, not anything you changed after buying it.

I have problems with my Terratec Cinergy 1400 DVB-T TV card, which does not function in Windows 7 64 bit, build 7229.

Whenever I install the driver for it, it says in the device manager that:
"The software for this device has been blocked from starting because it is known to have problems with Windows. Contact the hardware vendor for a new driver. (Code 48)"

The newest driver, I am able to find, is version 5.0.18. When I look at the driver details in the device manager, then it indicates that the problem is caused by the cxavsvid.sys driver.
Does anybody have a solution for this?


A:Terratec Cinergy 1400 DVB-T driver blocked

I just tried the same Driver Version on a Windows 7 x64 Edition. It worked without issues. I tried the Vista x64 Driver Version.
The Windows Media Center seems not to recognize the TV Tuner with this driver and the Terratec Home Cinema 6.3 neither.
Ok, after a reboot I have the same issue than you. One Cinergy Device is working but not the TV Tuner.

There is a German Forum on which they discussing issues with Windows 7 and THC in general: http://forum.digitalfernsehen.de/for...-7-beta-3.html

Someone seems to get the driver to work if he presses F8 on Boot then choose "Deactivate Digital Driver Signature" (or something similar). Install the drivers with Vista Compatibility and reboot.
I haven't tried this yet. Could be that he is using a different TV-Tuner from Terratec.

Hello. Have you tested with the ePSA diagnostic Quick Audio Check?

If you fail to hear the test tones in the Perform Quick Audio Check then there is a hardware failure with the Realtek audio system.
ashish_mdpBIOS: A12 (the latest one) - I think there is something wrong in this only. But unable to find. 
Did you install the A12 version before or after the audio failed? If the audio error occurred with the previous BIOS then the BIOS is not at fault.
Some BIOS versions let you downgrade to an earlier version. Some BIOS versions have a setting to enable audio (most don't).
ashish_mdpan updated driver
Dell has only released only 2 versions for Win 8.1 for the Vostro 3546: Realtek and Realtek, both from 2014. It should be one of those. However Windows contains its own native audio driver so the audio should have worked right after installing Windows, even before installing a Realtek driver.

Hey Tech Guy... Please help!

I rehabed a Dell Vostro 260 computer from work by re-installing Windows 7 Pro over the work stuff with the Dell OS disk. Next, I loaded all the necessary drivers from the Dell web site (network, sound, etc). Everything was working perfectly. Next, after all the dust settled, I upgraded to Windows 10 Pro and tried re-installing the Dell drivers again. Well, everything works great, except there is no sound. The sound driver (Conexant HD Audio) keeps failing when I run the Dell driver software. I tried deleting the existing sound drivers in Device Manager, deleting the driver folder (dell/drivers) after uninstalling the program through control panel. Please help! What can I do?

I have a dell Vostro 3500 which was released early 2010. The windows 10 upgrade app tells me I cannot upgrade to windows 10 because of the NVidia GeForce 310m driver is not compatible.
I also have an inspiron 1545 released late 2008 this can be upgraded to windows 10.
I have looked into this driver issue as I have been running windows 8.1 on the Vostro 3500 laptop for sometime. However the graphics driver sometimes crashes and has to recover. While this is useable it is not ideal.
In order to run windows 8.1 I had to download and install the old XP 64bit driver and run it in compatibility mode and as administrator. This took some effort and messing about to get it to work as well as it does.
However I have tried to install windows 10 preview on the system it will not let me install at all so I cannot even get to the point where I can try the windows XP driver. When I try to install directly on this system.
However I did install windows 10 preview on a different dell laptop the is compatible and them moved the hard drive into the Vostro 3500 to see what would happen.
Windows 10 worked on the laptop except for the GeForce 310m which had a exclamation mark in device manager. and it too sometimes crashed and had to recover
This is telling me the only thing stopping this laptop running windows 10 is the lack of a dell GeForce 310m driver
Will dell be releasing an updated driver for this graphics card as it seams very unfair that one laptop over a year olde... Read more

A:Vostro 3500 NVidia ge-force 310m windows 10 driver

there is a work around for this problem. go into your device manager, select Display adapters.
where you see Nvidia go into it and click on the driver tab. at the bottom uninstall the driver, remove it completely.
your screen will go black and flash but don't worry, it comes back in 640x480 ( hehe )
restart the laptop, you will now have no drivers at all. come back to dell.com and download the video driver again, you are looking for this file only R287485.exe
these are the Intel HD video drivers and are more stable then the Nvidia drivers too.  
Happy Windows 10 dude.

I have a Dell Vostro 1710,
I installed Windows 7 64 Bit and i'm having trouble finding the right video driver for my NVIDIA 8600 M GS. Dell Support recommends to install the Vista 32 bit video driver. I tried that, but the driver won't install, it says something that my OS isn't Vista. The driver version is this one: v / 24.06.2008 (R189832)
The NVIDIA official driver for 8600 M GS (v 179.48) for Windows 7 64 bits does not offer suport to Dell Vostro laptops and send me to manufacturer for drivers. I installed it anyway, but my system won't even start (I had to restore it).
Please help me with any kind of solution or sugestion.
Thank you.

A:Dell Vostro 1710 NVIDIA video driver for Windows 7 64 bit

Edit your post and remove the tag. That's not allowed on this user to user forum.  You can never use a 32 bit driver with 64 bit windows. You can only use the 32 bit driver with 32 bit windows 7--and sometimes that doesn't even work. Did you allow Windows 7 to find a compatible driver? Is the video card working now?  If it works with win 7, don't change the driver. You should have installed the 32 bit Win 7 for compatibility.

Vostro 360 upgraded to Windows 10 (via ISO).
Built-in panel video is corrupted (vertical stripe down center that suggests panel failure).External monitor works fine.However, built-in panel works during boot for both BIOS and Windows 10 logo screen, and also works in Safe Mode. Additionally, the panel works fine after it comes out of sleep mode.Any time the video mode changes (e.g. by a resolution change, plugging in an external monitor, or starting the computer) the built-in panel will be garbled. Causing the system to sleep and unsleep (even immediately after startup) will correct the built-in panel video corruption.Driver installed by Windows 10 is: Intel(R) HD GraphicsDriver Date: 5/27/2015Driver Version: update a Vostro 360 Windows 7 system with the latest Intel HD Graphics driver, I will get the same behaviour, so it's almost certainly a driver issue.What confuses me is that no-one has mentioned a similar problem, and many have mentioned successful upgrades to Windows 10. Am I just unlucky with my systems, or is there some software variable that could mask (or create) the problem?On Windows 7, I can revert to an older driver to make the problem go away. This is difficult on Windows 10, as it continually upgrades to the latest driver.Closest similar issue is an unresolved red/green/blue colour cycling problem.http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_7-hardware/dell-vostro-360-and-optional-intel-graphics-driver/2fbf78e7-2c1b-4986-b711-add8...

I am using a Logitech 2.1 mini jack audio system. Audio sounds quite bad. It's like sometimes it's out of phase and sometimes sounds like it's being dithered.
Windows 10 is running without audio enhancements. Audio is from any source. AIMP, FIrefox/YouTube, Pot Player.
I have up/downgraded audio drivers and problem remains.
Any suggestions to fix the problem are welcome.

X1 Carbon 5th Gen (20HR) with i5 7300U / standard Toshiba 512GB SSD / 16GB RAM.  Straight out of the box the "Windows Audio Device Graph Isolation" (WADGI) process was using between 15% and (occasionally) 95% total CPU resources, causing the machine to slow to a crawl, with the fan whirring away constantly, not to mention severly impacting battery life.  Tried reinstalling the Conexant Audio driver from Lenovo support website (didn't help).  Uninstalled the Conexant Audio Driver (solved the issue, but soon after reboot Conexant auto reinstalled and the issue returned, thereby validating that the Conexant Audio Driver was the cause.  It must have some pretty poor code ... you'd think they'd test these things, right?).  Got some great support from a chap named Steve at the Lenovo Support desk in Romania, but nothing we tried helped (including doing a bit of registry editing, editing various group policies, attempting to make the Windows Update Foundation service not auto-install updates, etc.).  Steve got back in touch with me a couple of times over a few days and we continued to attempt various things.  At one point I reinstalled the OS using a Lenovo provided USB Recovery flash drive and then updated OS to Win10 Creators (didn't help).  Throughout all of this the Conexant Audio driver continued to run at an average of 20% CPU usage, often spiking as high as 30% (I only saw it go to 90% twice but on one of those occasions I had to shutdo...

I have a Dell Vostro 260s with Windows 7 Pro.  I tried to connect it to my TV to run as a HTPC.  I get Video but no Audio through the HDMI port,  I went to playback devices to change it to the HDMI and HDMI is not an option only the Conexant HD Front and/or Rear Jacks.
Steps I've taken so far have been...
I've formatted the drive and reinstalled Windows 7 to make sure I have a clean install.  Installed latest drivers for Chipset and Intel HD video drivers as well as other required drivers, and it still not there. Went to Intel's site and tried their driver updater,  it did find new drivers for the Intel HD and installed them but still no HMDI under playback devices.
Is there no audio output through the HDMI on the 260s?
