Thanks for your help, my system came with a window vista home edition 64bit pre-installed, and i have divided the partition into 2 in order to perform a window xp installation, all the above procedures are done.

I am now looking for the driver for window xp which is for VGA and Audio, the system model is Dell Studio XPS 1340 (laptop), dell support site only provided the driver for window vista only; Thus, do you guys have any idea for the driver ?

Hi,
This model usually comes with a Nvidia 9400M Graphics driver (VGA).
You could try the nvidia driver here:
http://www.nvidia.com/object/noteboo...6.81_whql.html
But I cannot guarantee the results as most Dells that have a Nvidia card are tweaked to Dells specs.

As far as the Audio it should be a IDT 92HD73C1 Audio
See if this driver will work for you. It is from a Dell Studio 1555 series:

Thanks BCCOMP, i did try the link that you have provided, but the drivers don't work either... the VGA and AUDIO model that you have mentioned above are right, is Nvidia 9400M and IDT 92HD73C1.

HI,
When you downgraded to XP did you install the chipset driver first?
Have you tried to install these drivers manually?
Also, can I get an Everest Report? A link is under my signature
Thanks,
Bill

Actually i am not doing downgrade, i just install a fresh clean copy of window xp to the second partition in order to do dual boot.

I did not install the chipset driver first, how to do that ? i did install the everest home edition into my system, what kind of report would you like for my system ? system summary only,hardware related pages or Benchmark pages ? what format would you like for the report ? Plain text,HTML or MHTML ?

Thanks again for your help.

From you report you will need the card reader driver.

I did try for the link that you have provided to me, but seems like the same and the problems still exist. The VGA driver doesn't change anything at all in the device manager after installing the setup, But the Audio driver will move one of the questions mark away and pop up a notice that new hardware had been found, but still got a exclamation mark on the IDT audio driver.

Hi,
Sorry for the delay. I have been trying to review the codes of the drivers in your report and in the list of drivers I linked you to. The code appears to be OK, but I must admit I have not worked on this model before (I will still give it a shot though). A google search finds others are having the same issues.

I do have a few questions first though before we proceed.

When you installed XP did you successfully install the Chipset Drivers without issues?
From the report it looks OK.

Is there anything that has changed in the Device Manager?
If so, please post the changes before you proceed!

Have you removed ALL the IDT and Nvidia Video drivers before you attempted to install the new ones?
From your report the IDT driver installed is not the correct one. Please remove all the IDT and Nvidia Video drivers from both Add/Remove programs (if there) and in the Device Manager.

When you are installing the new drivers did you manually install them through the Device Manager?

Please let me know if there are any other errors in the Device Manager!

If you have done all the above you may proceed.

Lets work on the sound driver first.
Be sure to uninstall any other IDT Driver you installed first.
Reboot the computer
If the New Hardware Wizard appears CANCEL it.

Download and extract this file to a folder. Be sure you know where this folder is.
http://www.easy-share.com/1905162822/PIDT001.zip

Inside the folder you will find a few Sub folders. The path you want is as follows
The folder you made>PIDT001>WDM>XP

Now go to the Device Manger
Right click on the IDT Audio Driver (it should be in error)
Select Update Driver>No, not this time>Install from a list or specific location (Advanced)>Check include this location in the search>Browse to the folder you extracted the file to
and follow the path above to the XP folder.

See if windows will install the driver.

For the Video:
Remove any Nvidia Video driver you may have installed.
Reboot the computer
If the New Hardware Wizard appears select CANCEL.

Download both files from this link
http://www.laptopvideo2go.com/driver....40/disclaimer

You will need both files.

Once downloaded extract the 19040 file to a folder (Again make sure you know where the folder is).
Open this folder.
You should see a folder named 190.40. Open this folder
Once opened use the drop and drag method and put the modified inf. file (nv4_disp) in this folder.
If XP prompts you to replace this file select select YES

Enter the Device Manager
You may see two video controllers (SLI).
The one you want will have a Device Instance ID of VEN_10DE&DEV_0666&SUBSYS_02711028

To find the correct one:
Right click on one of the Video Controllers>Properties>Details TabThe one you need to install the driver on will have the numbers posted above.
Disable the other controller (VGA) before installing this driver.

Now to install the driver:
Enter the Device Manager
Right click on the Video Controller>Update Driver
Follow the same procedure (as the IDT Driver) and browse to the 190.40 folder.
See if XP will install the driver.

Let me know how you make out.

My fingers are crossed!
Bill

If XP prompts you to replace this file select select YES "........, i did see the nu4_disp file, but put in what folder ?

The following links are the image that in my device manager and add/remove program, you might get some information from that.....

Glad to hear you have your sound working, but we have other issues to deal with!

From your screenshot you are missing several drivers.

You will need win.rar to follow my instructions
Please download and install win.rar before proceeding.
Link to win.rar is here:
http://www.rarlab.com/download.htm
The file you want is WinRAR x86 (32 bit) 3.90

We will start with the SM Bus Controller first.

Go to this link and download the file to your DESKTOP:
http://www.nvidia.com/object/nforce_winxp_15.26.html

Once it is downloaded you will "see" a file named 15.26_nforce.
Go to MY DOCUMENTS and make a NEW Folder.
RENAME this folder CHIPSET.

Go back to the DESKTOP
RIGHT CLICK on the 15.26_nforce file
Extract Files
A screen will open up
Scroll down to My Documents (It maybe your user name)
You should "see" the folder you named CHIPSET
Click on the CHIPSET folder
Click OK to extract the file to the CHIPSET folder.

Now that the 15.26_nforce file is extrcted, I want you to open up the CHIPSET folder you made in My Documents.
Inside this folder you will see a folder name SM Bus. This is the folder you will need so make sure you know where it is.

Now go to the DEVICE MANAGER
Right click on SM BUS Controller>Update Drivers
A Wizard will open
Select: No, not this time>Next
Select: Install from a list or specific location (Advanced)>Next
Select: Include this location in the search>BROWSE
Browse to MY Documents (Or the User Name)>CHIPSET (the folder you made)>SM BUS
Select: OK

XP should install the SM Bus Driver

Reboot the computer
Go back into the Device Manager an see if the SM Bus Controller error is gone.

You will still need the card reader driver. This should work:
http://support.dell.com/support/down...&fileid=257517

Download to your desktop and run the exe file.
Reboot the computer.
Go back to the Device Mananger and see if the 3 Base System Device errors are gone.

For the Video:

Remove any Nvidia Video driver you may have installed.
Reboot the computer
If the New Hardware Wizard appears select CANCEL.

Download both files from this link to your Desktop
http://www.laptopvideo2go.com/driver....40/disclaimer

Note if this link fails try the link inpost #15

You will need both files.

Go to MY Documents and make a New Folder
Rename the folder VIDEO

Go back to your DESKTOP and extract the 19040 file to the folder you made (Video) in My Documents folder.
Go to My Documents> Video (the one you made)
Open this folder.
You should see a folder named 190.40
Open this folder.
Once opened use the drop and drag method and put the modified inf. file (nv4_disp) from your desktop to the Video Folder.

Another option is to go to the nv4_disp>Right click>send to>My documents>Video (The one you renamed at the beginnig)

If XP prompts you to replace this file select select YES

Enter the Device Manager
You may see two video controllers (SLI).
The one you want will have a Device Instance ID of VEN_10DE&DEV_0666&SUBSYS_02711028

To find the correct one:
Right click on one of the Video Controllers>Properties>Details TabThe one you need to install the driver on will have the numbers posted above.
Disable the other controller (VGA) before installing this driver.

Now to install the driver:
Enter the Device Manager
Right click on the Video Controller>Update Driver
Follow the same procedure (as the SM BUS) and browse to the 190.40 folder.
See if XP will install the driver.


Thanks,
Bill

Hi,
The 3 Base System Devices is your card reader.
Did you install this driver?
http://support.dell.com/support/down...&fileid=257517

Follow the install instructions on the above link.

As far as the one Unknown Device:
Open the Device Manager
Right Click on the Unknown Error>Properties>Details Tab
Post the info you find under Device Instance ID.

Thanks,
Bill
