I'm using a Dell Inspiron 1545 series laptop whose HDD crapped out last week. Luckily, I was able to bum a used HDD off a friend from an old HP laptop. Everything works fine, aside from the fact that whenever I try to play a game reliant on 3D rendering, the game won't actually load. I noticed in the Windows index that I needed to re-activate Windows 7, but I have neither my disc, nor the key nearby; so I decided to upgrade to Windows 10, hoping that would fix everything. Unfortunately, it did not.

Specifically, the error reads as such:

This device cannot find enough free resources that it can use. (Code 12)

If you want to use this device, you will need to disable one of the other devices on this system.

The specs are below:

OS: Windows 10 Pro (64)


CPU: Pentium Dual-Core T4400 @ 2.20 GHz

GPU: Mobile Intel 4 Series Express Chipset Family

IC Class: B ICES-003

Ref Number: 08225

Model Number: PP41L

Input: 19,5V - 3,34A/4,62A

You can try this solution found on a post.


Open Device Manager. Expand System Devices and uninstall PCI Bus. Restart PC.

Allow all devices connected to PCI Bus to automatically re install.

Restart PC again

Re install HD Graphics and HD Audio drivers.


You can find the drivers for your laptop on this page.  At the top of the page you can see Dell has stated that the laptop you have may not be fully compatible with the windows 10 environment.
