Having problems with your Dell Inspiron 1300 Notebook ?

Wireless card wont work

\015 My mother got a second hand laptop (Dell Inspiron 1300) and wanted windows reinstalled on it so I stupidly reformatted the hard drive and now the wireless card wont work. I tried downloading the drivers from the Dell website but still nothing. I have tried switching it on in the bios which says it's on but still nothing. Device manager also can't see the wireless card. I am at my wits end.\015

Don't give up. At least not yet. Go back to http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/driverslist.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=gen&os=WW1&osl=en&catid=&impid&SystemID=INSPIRON1300/B130 andsee that you download all wireless related drivers you find there, recomended or urgent as well as integrated controller. That should solve your problem.
Hi,
the problem may be that the WLAN-device (which is on the motherboard, no extra card!) in device manager appears listed as unknown PCI-device and windows may have problems in finding it.
When doewnloading the driver software, please make sure you are selecting the appropriate driver fitting both the motherboard-based device (see the exact model of your laptop, not only the 1300 series)
and the windows version you are using, sometimes it is helpful to install an older winversion like WIN XP or WIN 2000 Professional instead of Vista and pick the still available driver, I don't know if Win2K still is supported by DELL, but WIN XP may.
WIn VIsta is not ripe yet, rely on older but approved software instead. Good Luck
