Dell Latitude D430 Drivers.

  1. Oct 17, 2007 #1

    I recently went out and got a new D430 and due to a hard disk failure I had to replace the drive.

    So I installed a fresh copy of XP-Pro sp2 and went on the hunt for the various drivers from the Dell website.

    I found all but one of them... I'm not sure what driver it is looking for.. It comes up as "USB Device" and in the properties window it says the following :-

    Device Type : Other Devices
    Manufacturer : Unknown
    Location : Location 0 (USB Device)

    If anyone needs anymore info, just get back to me.

    Thanks in advance.

    You need to install the Bluetooth module drivers. They're called "Wireless 360 module w/ Bluetooth 2.1 EDR" on the dell website for the D430.

    OT: I had the same problem and solved it. Tried to reply to help you but registration was needed. So I went to good ol' bugmenot and used that account. Which is banned because bugmenot accounts aren't welcome. Smart rule, administrators. Luckily I thought it was worth helping future forum-browsers enough to make another bugmenot account.

    There's not anything plugged via USB is there? Have you tried the supplied drivers and diagnostics disc that came with your computer?

    Are you referring to connection via the wired-ethernet or wireless-ethernet?
    Are the corresponding drivers installed and "working properly" according to the device manager?
    How do nearby computers connect to "the Internet"?
    Do they connect [via a router]?
