    Like an earlier post – Been trying to install XP Pro using both Dell XP Pro OS and OEM cd’s and I get the BSOD – any ideas on how to get around this issue?

    Thanks :-)

  4. Isaac Osei says:

    hi,my webcam is not working and I dont see any problem wrong with it but seem not to be working.please try and help me out with my problem.I have the whole drivers of my laptop but still it’s not working.

  5. Burrito says:


    I got an inspiron 1545 almost against my will, and since i don’t fancy Vista i installed xp. Checked online beforehand and found out about the ATA-setting, and then i installed xp sp2 without any problems. I removed all partitions that was there previously.

    i ran into the same problems as everyone here, but have now discovered that i was reading about the 1525, so that is maybe why i have not gotten drivers to work.

    Before i try again there is something that bothers me:

    a removable disc icon shows up even though there are none inserted into the machine. The same thing in vista when i tried to re-install it (i could not get wireless to work with vista either). i suspect that it may be due to that i removed all partitions before installing xp, but that is just a guess. anyone know?

    cannot find anything about removable discs showing up when not apperent…

  6. Luiz says:

    Please can anyone update on how to get the CAPSLOCK (and multimedia keys) indicator working on my dell Inspiron 1545. Everything else works fine.
    It was working fine for 3 months until I had to reinstall Vista. So, What I have to do to setup these indicators on screen again?

    Tks in advance

  7. Luiz says:

    I saw in another forum and solved my issue.

    For view the indicators the Dell Quick Set shall be installed.

    link below (in this case, for Vista 64 bits)

  15. yfh21 says:

    Hi , I got the tray Icon to work for the Caps lock key. Find the following exe file, C:\Program Files\Dell\QuickSet\quickset.exe. When it is running I get the notifacation in thr tray area that Caps lock is on. I ended up adding it to the registry under local machine/software/microsoft/windows/current version/run. I added a new string value and just typed in C:\Program Files\Dell\QuickSet\quickset.exe. works all of the time now.

  16. Yvain says:

    To Catha and Natasha (function keys on keyboard) : I had the same problem as you had. I solved it by installing Dell QuickSet, and then by configuring, in Dell QuickSet, the behaviour of the function key.

    With this, I also don’t have to press Fn when I press Alt+F4…

    To Craig: Congrats on your work to find most of the XP
    drivers for the 1545. I have just purchased a 1545 and will
    take possession of it within a week. My intention is also
    to switch over from Vista to XP. My unit has 3g ram, 160GB HD,
    no webcam, 2G duo core proc. Are all the drivers I need
    located at the top of this page, and is there a set order
    I should use to install them?? Any help is greatly appreciated
    as I want to get all the files ready before the machine
    arrives. Thanks!

  21. kelly says:

    I love all the comments and the help everyone is giving everyone else, i think i can find the drivers i need with the help of my nephew who works at dell, however i cannot get that far in setting up xp on my new 1545, when i get to the user agreement to click on f8, to agree to the user agreement it doesn’t work, i know the keys work, because i can click escape but why doesn’t the f8 work?

    Hey guys, i’ve been reading all through this blog to find drivers for my 1545 with XP. I downgraded from windows 7, if anyone else is having the same problems as me. The wireless is functioning now :) Now I can download the remaining drivers.
    I didn’t need internet on the laptop to get the drivers, I just downloaded them onto my desktop and transfered them across.
    Here’s what you do:
    1. Download the drivers you need (For wireless, I have a 1395 WLAN card, so I got that off the dell website)
    2. Download the driver installer
    (Thank you so much to the dude that made this)
    3. Transfer it to your laptop, along with all the drivers.
    4. Run the installer and make sure it’s in the same folder as your drivers.
    5. Once it has finished, restart your 1545 and it should all be working :)

    E-mail me at or add me on windows live if you want any more help. I know how bad it feels to have a laptop not working. My parents took it back to PC world at one point and the staff were so rude, they took it home and I found the appropriate software off here.

  29. Yucca says:

    Works fine. Now I have Dell 1545 with XP pro. Thank You very much!

    Any ideas?
