    Dell E6410 - No DVD after Win 10 install - Fixes don't work!


    Hello,

    I've just done a clean install of Win 10 on a Dell Latitude E6410. I didn't have acccess to Dell's own driver setup discs, so it's just what I got from Microsoft. Windows appears to run OK, but there's no sign of my DVD drive. That is, there are no DVD/CD entries in Device Manager, and no drive appearing in File Explorer.

    I know the drive is fine, because I've set up the laptop as dual boot with Linux Mint, and it works perfectly well there.

    I've tried doing the usual registry fix (reg.exe add "HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\atapi\Controller0" /f /v EnumDevice1 /t REG_DWORD /d 0x00000001), and rebooted, to no avail.

    I've checked HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\ {4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}, and there are no entries for Upper or Lower Filters to delete.

    There are no entries for IDE ATA/ATAPI Controllers in Device Manager.

    There is one unknown device in the Other devices section, but from the driver details (ACPI\SMO8800\1) it appears to be the Dell Freefall sensor.

    The Drive is a TSSTcorp DVD+-RW TS-U633F D500. Dell say they don't support Win 10 on this machine, and don't seem to want to provide a driver for it on the model specific page. I may have found one elsewhere, but as the drive doesn't appear in Device Manager, I don't know how to update it...

    Can anyone suggest a solution?

    Thanks,

    Piers.

    :)

  2. USB port doesn't recognize anymore all devices

    On a Microsoft Surface Pro 1 laptop (Win 10 fully up to date), the USB port doesn’t recognize all my USB sticks (only one works) or a mouse or external USB DVD device. The device manager tells me that it can not recognize the device (error 43). After uninstalling
    the driver and restart, the problem comes back. When I check my USB sticks as well as the DVD reader on another laptop (Dell E6410 Win 10), they all work correctly.

    Any Idea?

  3. Windows DVD Player Doesn't Work after Update

    My dvd player has also stopped working after the recent update. My computer is a Dell Latitude E6410 32 bit system of Windows 10 running. The recent update has affected the ControlVault drivers and Dell does not support Windows 10 for my model. After running
    diagnostics from Dell's website the tests revealed that media cannot be read from my drive. Can this be fixed? Any suggestions?

    First, the ONLY driver for optical drives of any type is the default built in Windows driver. It has been this way since Win XP.

    Since Linux detects it, this says its probably not disabled in the BIOS, although I would still check as Linux can do strange things. If its disabled or not detected in the BIOS, Windows will not detect it. Dell Calls the BIOS the "Setup" and its accessed by F2 at power on.

    If the BIOS is OK, reinstall the Intel motherboard chipset drivers - even if the version you have is the latest. One of the things the chipset drivers do is identify all the devices on or attached to the motherboard.

    There are chipset drivers on the Dell downloads but they are old. You can get the latest at Intel: Tablet, 2in1, Laptop, Desktop, Smartphone, Server, Embedded

    FIREBERD-- Answer is what I would try next -- Make sure your Bios, DVD Firmware, are up to date -- Then Make sure your Chipsets are up to date -- I have upgraded a E6410 to Windows 10 -- But I made sure that all Firmware and Software was up to date - Had no Problems

    According to DELL the Latitude E6410 Should have these specs on firmware and software:
    BIOS -- A16
    Intel Chipset -- 9.2.0.1030 A05
    HECI Driver -- 6.2.40.1045 A08
    DVD -- D600 A04 Firmware

    Hello,

    Thanks for the suggestions.

    The DVD drive looks fine. As I said, it's no problem when booted to Linux, but anyway I ran the BIOS diagnostic tests and they came up clean. And, the laptop will boot to both the Win 10 and Linux install DVDs.

    I've updated the BIOS from A10 to A16, and the Intel Chipset to 9.2.0.1030 A05.

    When I tried running the HECI Driver update it generated an error message: "This computer does not meet the minimum requirements for installing the software".

    When I tried running the DVD Firmware update it generated the error message "Drive can't be found" (I guess that's as you'd expect!).

    I found these drivers via the Dell Product Support Drivers & Downloads page. I think I understand the basics, but the one thing I'm not clear on is how to determine the currently installed version numbers...?

    I also downloaded and ran the Intel Driver Update Utility Installer, but it found nothing at all. Should I have been searching manually, and if so, what should I have been looking for?

    So, any suggestions as to what I should do / try next?

    Piers.

    A BIOS reset (Clear the CMOS memory) is something to consider. However, its not usually easy on a laptop. With the PC powered off, remove the CMOS Memory backup battery for AT LEAST 10 minutes (Intel says 15 min).

    OK, I can try that, but before I do, what makes you think this is a BIOS issue?

    Surely if there was something wrong at that basic level, I wouldn't be able to access the drive as I can currently through Linux.

    While you're here, how do I find out the currently installed versions for the HECI driver?

    Piers.

    I don't think the HECI is an issue, myself.

    Windows keys on the BIOS and although Linux sees the drive, there is still a chance something in the BIOS is preventing Windows from recognizing the drive. (obviously you can't update the drive firmware unless its in Windows as the Dell firmware update is not for Linux).

    When you "clean" installed Win 10, had you upgraded to 10 previously? (and did the drive work OK) or just going directly to Win 10 from an older OS? If you just went directly to Win 10, one more thing to consider is reinstalling the old OS (I assume Win 7) making sure the drive works OK in the old OS and then do an "upgrade" to Win 10 and see if the drive works. This is a hassle but may be the way to get the drive working.

    Hello,

    The PC was an old one from my company that actually had XP on it when I got it, though the authentication key sticker in the battery compartment is for Win 7 Pro OA (Dell). Because I couldn't get round the old company software (it was trying to force a network login), I decided to just wipe it and start again. My first clean install was actually Linux Mint 17.3, which I wanted to check out for a possible dual boot.

    I didn't have any Windows OS media, so downloaded the Win 10 32-bit iso and installed from that using the Win 7 Pro OA key. First I used the Linux partition manager to split the (160GB) drive in half, and it's now dual boot (Legacy Bios, not UEFI).

    I have, however, been lent a Win 7 Home Premium 64-bit disc by a friend, so I could try installing that. Do you know if that disc is going to accept a 32-bit key?

    Piers.

    I have a Win 7 OEM version and it came with two discs, one for 32 bit and another for 64 bit.
    The E6410 is a 64 bit OS machine and what I would use.
    If the Win 7 disc from the friend has never been activated you can use that, but if its already activated, no.
    If you can find a Dell OEM Win 7 64 bit disc you can use that.

    I'm going to throw in the suggestion to try installing/running driver update software in compatibility mode for an older version of the software, eg. Windows 8 or 7.
    Compatibility Mode Settings for Apps - Change in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums

    If the driver installer unzips itself to somewhere, also go there and set compatibility mode on the driver installer exe (probably setup.exe) before you run it.

    This helped me get some old drivers working on old hardware.

    Hello,

    I wasn't intending to run the Win7 Home 64 disc using the key on the DVD case anyway, because I'm sure it's in use already. What I don't know is whether the key I have for the 32-bit OEM version can authenticate the 64-bit Home disc...?

    OK, I tried that (set it to Win 7 and to XP), but it still said the computer didn't meet minimum requirements. That sounds to me like it's not meeting minimum hardware requirements in some way...?
