Dell Vostro 1400 blue screens on windows update after clean install

9 May, 2009 (02:18) | Hardware Info, How to, OS

Just reinstalled Vista Ultimate off the Dell disc. Fresh happy clean install, then let it update and KABOOOM! Blue screen. The problem is in the Intel chipset/matrix drivers. The easiest way to fix it is:

Go in the BIOS

Disable Flash cache

Switch from AHCI to ATA disk mode

save and reboot

This will unbluescreeen, allow you to update all of your patches, then go grab all the latest drivers and firmware from Dell Support. 

Linux does this too on certain machines/chipsets. Man it is a pain when they switch interfaces, the OS guys take years to recover.
