Question about Dell Studio 1537 Laptop

No XP drivers for firewire and audio device in Dell Studio 1537

I recently downgraded my Vista machine to Windows XP Pro. Dell does not support XP on all their Studios, but I was able to find most of the drivers online. There is two that I have been unsucessful: the drivers for the 1394 Net Adapter and one Unknown Device on "Microsoft ACPI-Compliant System" (which I think might be audio related?).

Any help on both is greatly appreciated!

    Hi, and thanks for the response! I have already tried the chipset driver(s). Didn't work. As far as my research goes, these two issues are quite common for this machine with XP and some have already posted these issue on Dell's Forum but the suggestions are always to look up the solution online. Dell's tech support says there are no XP drivers made for this computer at all (go figure).

Missing hd audio codec

Hi, I was searching for this driver on the Internet and it seems to be your lucky day, here I found the IDT drivers for Audio, for Windows XP for the Studio XPS 1640, now because this computer was designed for Windows Vista, Dell will not be responsible for the use of this driver, nor any future damage that it might cause, not that I've seen the case, but Online forums state that this driver is 100% working with no issues, if you happen to have one, please let me know, the link is a rapidshare download server, just follow the instruction on the free user and go ahead. Regards. P.S. Here are the Dell Drivers for Vista, in case when Windows 7 comes out you want to just do the upgrade option with vista, and it should solve everyones issues.

Dell 1537

You can download the drivers from Dell WEB site, the support download page. Make sure you select your model laptop, better still, type in the Service Tag number, it is printed on the label on the bottom of the laptop. This will open the page where the specific drivers for your model laptop are located. Also make sure you select the Windows XP or Vista version of the driver for your Windows operating system.
