Inspiron 9400 e1705 drivers for upgrade to windows 7 sp1

Q: Inspiron 9400 e1705 drivers for upgrade to windows 7 sp1

I know this is a little outdated, but need all the drivers needed and order to install with a fresh cd install of windows 7 sp1

I found the info here years ago and can no longer find it with listed drivers for the upgrade.

I installed windows 7 sp1 and the laptop does not work well, very slow. Did one at a time device driver and tried to update drivers, not any better.

I will do another clean install if I can get the needed info.

Thanks for your help

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.)

I purchased this laptop in 2006. It was running on WIndows 7 Ultimate, and, before gifting it to a friend I thought I'd try applying the WIndows 10 upgrade.
I was a little surprised, but the upgrade worked with no issues. The video driver is the generic WIndows driver, and display function is fine. All functions are working; wireless, touchpad, sound, Office 2013 apps, browsers (chrome, firefox), antivirus, etc. There are no resource-intensive apps loaded; not used for gaming; but for Internet access, basic office apps, etc. it's working well. 
Totally subjective, but seems a little faster than on Windows 7.

The legacy AGP driver for the Radeon 9XXX card from vista works fine if you have that option.

There is no dedicated Windows 8 Driver for the ATI Mobility X300/X600/X1300/X1400 graphics cards but I have documented that the Windows Vista Driver R153383.exe will install and work reliably in Microsoft Windows8. 
The steps for installation are listed below:

Download the R153383.exe drvier from: http://www.dell.com/support/drivers/us/en/04/DriverDetails?driverId=R153383 and extract the compressed files, then cancel the automatic installation of the driver (It crashed out on me when I ran the install)
From The Style UI interface, move the mouse pointer to the lower left corner, and Right Click, select Device Manager from the pop-up menu.
Click the arrow next to Display Adapter, Microsoft Basic Display should be listed.
Right Click the Microsoft Basic Display and click Update Driver, then select Browse My Computer ...., then Click Let Me Pick From a List ....
Click the HAVE DISK Button in the Install from Disk Window, browse to the C:\Dell\Drivers\R153383\Packages\Driver\Display\LH_INF folder and click CL_45540.inf then Click Open and OK to install the driver.

I have completed this process on both an Inspiron E1505/6400 and Inspiron 6000 and both systems are working fine, even power management seems to function well.

Can you get a multiple display with a projector? I was able to get the ATI Mobility x300 as the display adapter, but I can only get one display at a time. With XP, I could see my laptop screen duplicated on a projector and I would like to be able to do the same under Windows 8.
When I check the display with the Control Panel, it allows for only one display and the monitor is a generic PnP monitor and the adapter is the Microsoft Basic Display driver.
I didn't use the method that you suggested to get the X300 adapter.
Any suggestions?
Thank you.

I'm having trouble tacking down an audio driver for my Dell Inspiron E1705/9400. It has a Sigmatel 9200 HD Audio Codec.

As Indicated from device manager
HDAUDIO\FUNC_01&VEN_8384&DEV_7690&SUBSYS_102801CD&REV_1022

VEN 8384 - Sigmatel
DEV 7690 -9200 HD Audio Codec
SUBSYS 102801 - Dell

The audio card is able to output sound however while playing back any prolonged audio, ie music, the playback is unacceptably interrupted with digital artifacts such as skips and pops. This behavior is experienced using a variety of drivers. All drivers have been uninstalled using device manager and then the system has been rebooted before installing the next driver. Also all of the other dell recommended drivers have been installed without a hitch. Finally all windows patches are up to date.

I started with the driver provided by Microsoft and continued to try the recommended driver from dell, R171788. I have also tried the following additional driver packages from dell, R108276, R147073, and R171789.

Additional Information:
OS: Windows 7 x86 Home Premium
Dell Service Tag: BSCDK91

Thank you for any input!

Hello,
First let me tell you about my system.   This is an Inspiron
E1705/9400 laptop with the T7400 Core 2 Duo processor running at 2.16
GHZ.   It has 2 GB of RAM and a brand new 500GB Hitachi Travelstar hard
drive (7200 RPM).   It also has the GeForce Go 7900 GS video card.   
It previously had Windows XP Professional (32 bit) and worked fine.  
But, I have three computers in my home and home office and would like
them all to work better together on my wired home network, so I am
upgrading all three to Windows 7.   My two desktops (one is Dimension
XPS 420 and the other is Dimension XPS 430) seem like they will be no
problem to upgrade to Windows 7.   But, this laptop was not listed on
Dell's Windows 7 Compatibility List.   However, the Windows 7 Upgrade
Advisor that I downloaded and ran seemed to say that it was OK to do a
clean install of 32 bit Windows 7 and it only had a few minor concerns,
where it said to check for updated drivers from the manufacturer.   The
laptop originally came with a 100GB hard drive.   For my use, that is
getting very small, so I decided to get the same exact 7200 RPM drive
in the 500 GB size.   This will allow me to do a clean install of the
32 bit Windows 7 OS on the new hard drive and not have to wipe the old
drive to do it.   I can just hold onto the old HD and stick it back in

I've had the Dell Inspiron 9400 (E1705) for years, upgraded it to Win 7 Ultimate and the ATI x1400 driver with Mobility Modder to get full screen resolution functionality and better performance.
Windows update showed the Win10 icon and I ran a compatibility test which returned a favorable upgrade result - so I ran the update. Obviously the Modded driver is gone - replaced by a generic MS driver that gives me only 2 resolutions and poor video performance.
The 9400 is old, heavy, and slow - but it's a "tank" and great for just sitting on the kitchen counter for recipes. If the CPU isn't overloaded with background missions - it's a solid and reliable performer for a limited set of tasks.
Can anyone suggest a fix or mod to get the x1400 running on Windows 10?
Thanx

I just want to know if it is possible to upgrade the E1705's CPU to something faster than 1.66GHz that I have now. I'm looking for something in the 2 GHz and up range. Plus I would like to know when/if the old E1705 that came with the Intel Core Duo changed to the new one with the Intel Core 2 Duo processors.

Now, I'm at work so I can't check my laptop now, but if I have the old Intel Core Duo processor. Would it be possible for me to upgrade my processor to the new Intel Core 2 Duo processor.
 

A:Dell Inspiron E1705 CPU Upgrade

That depends on the way DELL made your laptop. Some you can remove the CPU and replace it with higher speed. Butyou got those Dual core ones where you can change the CPU, but doing that will have to be check with DELL online support first. Remember faster CPU more battery life will be shorten. Going from 1.66GHz to 2.0GHz isn't that big of a deal.

Hi all,
I've searched the forum and got references to but can't find actual posts re: installing drivers for this.
Dell Inspiron 9400 laptop, dual boot of XP Home and Windows 7, install of public beta went really well. In Win7 I have a volume icon in task bar, but no audio output I can hear... Win7 is using the digital output with spidf, which I can't use, it shows no other option. I can't seem to install the original drivers (from Dell, for XP), they fail (sez they're not the right drivers for my hardware, even though I tried installing as Administrator).
In XP, device manager reports the SigmaTel High Definition Audio CODEC, what am I missing here? I think I'm needing to install the "legacy audio" drivers??!!
Any help?
Thanks

The Registry recently became corrupted on my Dell Inspiron 9400 and after several unsuccessful attempts at fixing it I am giving up and installing a new Crucial 120GB SSD and hopefully upgrading the OS to either Win 7 or 8. But this brings up several questions that I'm hoping someone can answer for me.
A) Will this old a laptop run either of these operating systems properly?
B) If so, will it run any version of them - Home, Premium, Pro, Ultimate, etc.
C) Will it run 64 bit or just 32 bit?
D) Can I do a clean install on a new Solid State Drive? And if so, do I need to buy an OS upgrade version or a full version, (I'm assuming there is a difference.) (I think I still have the original Win XP installation discs).

If this project is feasible and I get through all of the above are there any other problems that I am liable to run into?

Hi Everyone,

I'm having some weird problems with my Dell Inspiron laptop. While using my laptop I got a "paged fault in nonpaged area" blue screen and it just died. When it booted back up the screen was covered in weird wavy blue dots. These disappeared when the windows vista progress bar was loading, but it never even gets to the log in screen. I thought it might be windows, so I tried the dual boot of Ubuntu and that didn't get to the log in screen either. I then tried reformatting the computer, and I could boot to CD and install windows. But then after rebooting I get the same wavy dots/stripes across the screen. They go away when the progress bar comes up loading vista, but once again the screen goes blank and windows vista log in fails to load. I've tried the dell diagnostics, and all the parts pass - so I'm not quite sure what the problem is.

The laptop itself is about 4 years old. Its a Dell Inspiron 9400, Intel Centrino Duo processor. nVidia 7900GS graphics card.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Cheers

Someone told me I could 'run the webcam in compatibility mode', but if the computer isn't even recognizing the webcam, how would that work?

I've played it on my Mom's computer before. Then, of course, when I wanted to play it on my own, I uninstalled it, and tried to install it on my own.

Does the INSPIRON 9400 take 2 x 2 GB RAM and which one do you recommend to buy?
I started using Windows7 and want to virtualize some machines and need more RAM. Currently I go 2 x 1 GB from DELL equipped, but there is no upgrade by DELL to 2 x2 GB, only from KINGSTON:
Hope somebody has experience and allready upgraded his machine and can give me the results.

A:4GB RAM on DELL INSPIRON 9400

Hi Canis,
According to the Owner's Manual for your Inspiron 9400, the maximum supported RAM is 2Gb, which is what you already have. The Intel 945 Chipset doesn't support more than a total of 2Gb, so there is no point to trying to put 2 x 2Gb in to the system. At best the system will only recognise 1Gb from each card, for a total of 2Gb, and at worst the system won't boot up at all. Even if the system did boot up it is likely to give memory errors and be quite unstable, so I would strongly recomend that you don't try it.

I have a Dell Inspiron 9400 and think of upgrading to an SSD (likely the 40 GB Intel since I don't need much space).

I removed the HDD and saw it is a 100 GB SATA from June 2006. Hitachi HTS721010GSA00 with 7200 rpm. no cables, it seems to plug right into the power and SATA plug inside the laptop. Wil that be the same type as a new SSD? I mean position of the plugs. there is a little plastic piece from the laptop case attached to the HDD. I wonder how that transfers to the SSD?

Will I encounter any problems? I didn't see any laptop-specific the Newegg Laptop SSDs bring me straight to the normal SSDs.

From what Intels says it seems to be very similar in dimensions

I googled to some, but didn't get clear answers.

A:SSD in 4 year old Inspiron 9400

From what I know, it should work fine as long as your laptop uses SATA. Even if it uses 1.5Gb/s SATA the drive should be backwards compatible. However, someone with more experience with SSD's should be able to tell you for sure.

EDIT: It seems that you'll be limited to 150MB/s but thats not much lower than most SSDs are rated.

Do a search elsewhere on this TechSpot forum for information on Dell passwords... you may be out of luck on that model... I would look for the name she called you, or some negative reference... If she intentionally did the password thing, then you will be able to figger it out eventually.

Is the shortening method possible to clear the service tag number. If yes, where is the eeprom chip located. I called Dell but they are asking me to register the laptop and pay.

If someone knows where I can fin a key generator tell me.

The display doesn't fit on my laptop (Dell Inspiron 9400). I use a separate monitor and keyboard. All was well until the left hinge on the laptop broke. A PC expert came round and fixed the hinge by removing the screen etc. Now the display is ok for the monitor but too big for the laptop. It's too wide and the top 1/4 repeats along the bottom. The guy had done something to speed it up but wouldn't say what. He said it was a software problem and the system needed to be completely restored from the discs and left me with the problem. Total restore is not really an option, but I did try to restore to a date before he was here. There were no retore points available. I don't know why. In the end I did try control f11 which has worked before but that now doesn't. I really do not want to restore. I just want to be able to use my laptop without the monitor when I travel.

I have tried change the resolution but that has no effect on the laptop, just on the monitor
 

A:Display too big Dell Inspiron 9400

First make sure the correct driver for the laptop's graphics adapter is installed by checking Device Manager. If no error symbols are shown there, then everything is probably okay as far as drivers are concerned.

Now go to Control Panel >> Display >> Advanced Settings (I think, but I no longer have Windows XP so not sure).
What you are looking for is the "Display Resolution" adjustment. It may be set at the wrong values. See if you can drag the slider towards the right (higher resolution). Then click 'OK' to save the new setting. You won't actually see the result until after you click 'OK' so you may have to experiment with various resolution settings until you get the image to display proper size on the laptop screen.

If you are unable to change the resolution (slider won't move or it's already at it's highest setting) then you may need to re-install the video driver.
You can download that from the Dell website appropriate for your part of the world.

Hi,

I appreciate that there are a few threads on this subject, but i just wanted to describe my specific issue, plus what I have done to diagnose; in the hope that I can find a solution.

As the thread title suggests, I am coming across the error:

*** Hardware malfunction
Call your hardware vendor for support
NMI: Parity check/ memory parity error
*** The system has halted***

This happens typically when using graphics-based applications, mainly during Internet Explorer use, and mostly when running the PC game, Football Manager 2009 (this is the only game I have installed).

I am running a Dell Inspiron 9400, two years old, on 981 Mhz, 2.00GB RAM, Intel Centrino Duo, ATI Mobility Radeon X1400....

Having researched this issue thoroughly through this forum and others, I have run the following diagnostics:

- memtest86+

- windows diagnostic tool (run 12 times)

- Video memory stress test

- Dell diagnostics on system startup.

These tests have resulted in producing no errors whatsoever. I appreciate that many replies have pointed towards the RAM, but as I said, memory tests (although never completely conclusive) have returned nothing. I have stopped short of removing RAM as I have never opened my laptop up inside.

My admittedly newbie suspicions point towards a video card issue, as the blue screen error/crash occures when running aformentioned apps such as a PC game, although I have updated the video card driver through device manager.

I recently purchased a 500GB WD Scorpio Blue hard drive and was hoping to clone my current 120 GB SATA drive to that one. I used Apricorn EZ Gig II and a USB SATA wire to clone the disk and then swapped out the 120 GB HD for the 500 GB one. After getting to the XP load screen I received a blue screen error message and could not properly load windows. Looking in the setup menu, the computer also did not recognize that a different hard drive had been installed.

I've read through other posts and have learned that the Dells that come Media Direct software have an HPA on the hard drives that cannot be copied normally. The other problems don't exactly match mine, which is why I decided to post my problem.

At this point, I'm having difficulty even trying to reclone the hard drive, as the new drive is not recognized as blank storage anymore.

I am hoping there is a solution I could use to re-clone the entire hard drive without any need to reinstall Windows.

Hey Everyone,
My friend has a Dell Inspiron 9400 Laptop, and he wants me to format it for him. I tried to use the quick format utility. However, when I start the laptop, the dell splash screen comes up with the options of F12 and F2 for boot options and bios options. However, the normal www.dell.com splash screen where you are supposed to hit CTRL+F11 does not come up, it just comes up with a blank blinking cursor for about 3 seconds and goes to the windows bootup.

I have found a site called the DSRFIX tool that is supposed to repair the repair partition. But I am wondering if I am doing anything wrong. My friend says that he didn't have any kind restore discs with his laptop. So, I am wondering if I need to run this repair utility to get the partition back, or if his laptop does not have the restore partition. He does have the diagnostic utility when you go into boot options, but there is no option for the repair utility.

On my own dell laptop, the www.dell.com splash with the blue ribbon on the top and CTRL+F11 works for my Inspiron 9300. Can someone help me figure out what is going wrong here?

Thanks for any help.
 

A:Dell Inspiron 9400 Format Troubles

Sounds like you are doing everything correctly. The restore partition may be corrupt. After taking thousands of complaints Dell changed it's mind on not offering restore cd's. Your friend (and you) can call Dell support, give them the necessary info, and they will send a free restore cd in just a few days.
