Drivers For Dell Inspiron 1440 Windows 7 Wireless Network Adapter?
Mar 24, 2011
I am only getting " limited" access to the wireless network at my university, meaning no access! I had no wireless adapter issues 20 min earlier. The only thing I did install was driverupdate, cause I was getting the blue screen only when I was connected to the wireless network at school and the code that came up on the blue screen said something wrong with the driver.I have tried s restore to te previous day, that didn't work! I uninstalled DriverUpdate, still doesn't work. I've tried clearing dns cashe at cmd, that didn't work.
Also, please note that when migrating from Windows XP to Windows 7 you will not have an "in place upgrade" option. You will however have the option to select "custom" install when prompted. The Windows 7 install process will then copy all of your data in "My Documents" over to a Windows.old folder within Windows 7 itself. All applications and documents stored in other locations will have to be reinstalled / transferred manually.

Just wondering if anyone can give me any advice on how to get my wireless 1397 WLAN mini-card to enable on my network connections screen? About a month ago I pressed the f2 and fn key together to turn off my wireless and it seems to have done something as when u try to turn it on the same way it doesn't do anything? Also when I highlight the wireless network connection mini card in the network connections screen it says it disabled, I click enable this network device and the screen pops up to say its enabled yet when that screen disappears the connection is still greyed out and says disabled.When I ask Ask my computer to diagnose the problem It says there may be a problem with the drivers. I've uninstalled the drivers and downloaded them from the dell website and installed them Again , still not working !! I'm confused as everyone keeps saying on this forum to just press f2 and fn but it's not working
I have a Dell Inspiron 1440 running windows 7. This computer was purchased new about a year and a half ago, and I have had no problems up until a couple days ago. I went to turn my laptop on the other morning and as usual the dell logo came up and loaded, then the windows symbol saying "starting windows"... then strangely a black screen with a cursor arrow... nothing more, no log in screen... just black nothingness... I have ran the diognostics and they all say "pass". I am able to access F2 & F12 but it will not boot in safe mode or with a command prompt.
I have a Dell Inspiron 1440 with windows vista. I was given the free upgrade to windows7. When I try to install windows 7 it says that my webcam is not compatible and wants to remove it from my system. Has anyone else had this problem or know of a way around it? The laptop is brand new and I don't want to mess it up.
I tried to update avg on hubs laptop so the kids can play and now after I did it we can't get online period!! on the tool bar were the connection pic is says limited connection? So I did all of the steps to fix ect and it finally came up to.
- There might be a problem w/the drivers for the wireless connection2 adapter - There might be a problem w/the drivers for the local area connection adapter
MY actual modem is good as we have 3 running right now - should I go to restore point before avg in the critical update moments before I realizes this problem?
I have a Dell N5110 with a failed hard drive. I bought a new hard drive, reinstalled Win 7 Home Premium 64 bit. I then downloaded all the drivers from dell. I followed the Dell recommended install order. After all the drivers are loaded, I go to Device manager and it says I am missing a network controller driver and I am unable to access wireless. I press function + F2 and I can turn on the wireless, but I am unable to add a wireless network. I have tried numerous network drivers from the dell site - doing a win reinstall before trying a different driver, but none are working. I have reformatted the machine again (for the 5th time) and I have no drivers currently installed. Where do I go from here?
Are all Dell Laptops the same in this regard? I do a helluva lot of typing and just cannot seem to sort out this darn keyboard - cannot seem to find a way to dot my e's or put forward-/back slashes on e's and i's.
My HP had a feature whereby i could type "alt" followed by any three numbers, resulting in those characters.
Can anybody please assist or can i perhaps download directions to explain which buttons represent what?
