Hi

I hope this is the right forum as I'm a bit of a n00b.

I'm trying to re-install the Dell Inspiron/Latitude/Precision fan control utility (I8kfangui31.exe)which I stupidly uninstalled a few weeks ago using Revo Uninstaller.

When I try to re-install, I get this error message: "Can't install fanio driver: Can't create driver (5). Please uninstall the existing I8kfangui version first...aborting"

Please advise. Much appreciated!!

P.S. I'm using XP Home Edition on my Dell Inspiron 1300.

Louis, I had similar thoughts last night. I wound up leaving the Dell web site swearing that I would never own one of their products, and would try to dissuade others from the same. The list of drivers that Dell provides is very limited. What Noknojon found is about the best that is out there.<_<

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

Thanks, Dan :).

To be honest (IMO), the Dell site has gotten progressively worse regarding support over the years...but they are still often better than than their fellow OEMs.

I would never buy an OEM system, at this point in time. Their concept of "support" grows narrower each year, IMO.
