Conversation: Dell Quick Set
Subject: Re: Dell Quick Set
I have a Dell Inspiron 6000 running Windows XP Home with SP2 and all
I reinstalled the OS with the Dell Reinstallation CD provided with
computer. I have also used the Drivers and Utilities disk to install
drivers that were designated for my system.
There are other utilities that are listed on the CD.
Are Dell Quick Set, Dell 32-bit Diagnostics for Recourse CD, and
theNotebook System Software necessary to download?matter.
I would appreciate and help, comments, and suggestions in this
Thanks in advance for your help.
My name is Todd and I'm with Dell's online outreach program. While
others are really up to you to decide whether or not to install, we
normally recommend the Dell Notebook System Software be installed when
installing drivers. It helps control some of the communications
systems on the notebook, such as the USB controllers.
Does it have to be installed? No, not really. Your system will
probably work fine without it. If you start to get weird errors or
some components are not responding correctly you may want to install
Just for information, when we help customers to reinstall we normally
suggest drivers be installed in this order:
Dell Notebook System Software
After that the order isn't really all that important and it's personal
preference at that point.
The Dell diagnostics can also be run off the Dell Drivers & Utilities
CD if you boot from it, so there isn't a need to install it directly.
If you have any other questions please let me know. I'll stop back to
see if I can be of further hope.
If you're really a Dell advocate, that's disappointing, because you are
absolutely 100% wrong. The Dell Notebook System Software has controls
no hardware. The USB ports are properly installed with the Chipset
software as are all the other motherboard devices that do not have their
own driver (such as video and network).
In addition, order IS important, as the chipset software should ALWAYS
be installed first.
Even worse, there is no such thing as Dell Notebook System Software.
Check the download page for the I6400. There is Dell Support, which is
not necessary. There is Dell diagnostics, which is not necessary. There
is Dell Quickset, which is not necessary.
Let's just hope you're new at this. If so, you might want to do some
searches of older posts on this newsgroup, as the regulars here appear
to know more about your products than you do.
