Dell :: Alternative For Quickset On Vista 64 Bit (Vostro)

Oct 14, 2008

Dell does not release 64-bit Quickset for Vostro 1310 and 1510. The 32-bit ones won't work on 64 bit Vista.

That means you won't know how loud you change your volume, or whether it is muted or not. I tried to install Quickset x64 for other laptops but all shows "unsupported system" during the installation.

The workaround is to download the latest Dell ControlPoint System Manager.

This is the link: Dell ControlPoint System Manager

It is compatible with E4200, E4300 and M6400. However it installs successfully on my Vostro 1310 running on Vista Business x64. The volume indicators works, the mute notification works, change of brightness works. The only drawback is ControlPoint does not work with wifi/BT indicators. You flip the switch and there won't be any indicators for it on the screen.

Dell :: Webcam On Vostro 1700 Crashing (LiveCam.exe) - Any Ideas Or Alternative Software?

May 14, 2009

I'm having a few problems with the web cam software in my Dell Vostro 1700 laptop.

When I run the web cam manager it displays video fine, but as soon as I start to record video it crashes, saying livecam.exe has stopped working.

I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling but it's still no good.

Any ideas? I've not used it for quite some time, so don't know how long it's been like it. Alternatively, are there any other good free apps that let you eaily record video on a web cam?

I also have Skype and MSN Messenger installed, but wouldn't have thougt they'd have done the damage (as it's only when I try to record that it crashes).

Dell :: Vostro A860 RAM Upgrade And Vista-32

Feb 21, 2009

I am planing on getting this machine for my home office use. Couple of questions about RAM upgrade.

1. It comes with 2G RAM 1x2048MB stick; I wan to get this up to 4G; Has Vista-32 preinstalled. Will I be able to USE all 4G or less than that (I know Vista reports all 4G as installed), but does it it really use all 4G. Specs say max RAM is 4G. Is it worth getting this upgrade now, or

2. Should I just get the upgrade and when Windows 7 comes out, will it be able to USE the full 4G, even if 32-bit

Dell :: Vostro 1700 Vista Booting To Black Screen

Dec 5, 2009

I've a wee problem here and I'm not sure if there's anything else that I can do with it. It's a Vostro 1700 and it passes POST fine.

Vista starts loading as evidenced by the scrolling bar, but then instead of going to a logon screen,

I just get a black screen with a moveable mouse pointer, nothing else. Hard disk activity comes to a halt.

Dell :: QuickSet Help

Aug 6, 2009

I currently own the Studio 14 laptop running on Vista Home Basic 32-bit. I have this problem with missing blue volume as well as brightness bar.

In fact, the Wi-Fi catcher that runs on Quick Set is not working....

My problem is that the QuickSet wouldn't run itself during windows startup eventhough it is enabled in Windows Defender and MSConfig. I really got no idea how can this be happening.

Now, I have to manually click on the QuickSet.exe to enable the bars and function. Imagine something automatic now to be done manually. Cumbersome

Dell :: Windows 7 Quickset

Aug 17, 2009

Just a quick note to anybody who has been unable to get Quickset to work with Windows 7 Release Candidate. Dell have now made a version of Quickset available for Windows 7. If you go to the dell website for your country, and go to the download drivers page, you will notice that some models of computer now have Windows 7 drivers available.

It doesn't appear to be all computers at this moment in time, and it isn't all drivers either.

If the option is not there for your machine, you could always try the version of Quickset that is on the Dell Inspiron 1545 page. It works fine for me, I now have volume controls appearing on the display once again.

Here is the link for the Inspiron 1545 Windows 7 64 bit drivers:

Inspiron 1545 Windows 7 64bit drivers

No doubt more models will be appearing with Windows 7 drivers over the coming days / weeks.

Dell XPS 17 :: Quickset Not Working

Jan 29, 2013

I have an XPS17 and recently noticed that the "customized by Dell" portion of the Windows Mobility Center no longer works.  I was told the bottom info is somehow related to the Quickstart application.  You can see in the picture below what it is supposed to look like on the left, and what mine looks like on the right.  None of the "customized by Dell" functions work anymore.

Dell :: QuickSet Media Keys

Feb 26, 2010

Anyone know of a way to make the QuickSet media keys work with iTunes when using another application? Big annoyance to have to navigate back to iTunes when I want to change the song or stop it, though the Win7 Jump List controls help a bit.

Dell :: Quickset And Windows Mobility Centre

Jun 19, 2009

As I'm sure those of you who installed it are aware, the latest Version of Quickset is now ran on startup as a service. Yay!

However, for me, when it opens it also opens the Windows Mobility Centre on startup. Does anyone know a way to keep QuickSet on startup, but stop the Mobility Centre popping up?

Dell :: WWAN/GPS Alternative To ControlPoint

Oct 6, 2008

I'm really starting to hate the bloat of controlpoint, but I have a 5530 WWAN card, so need some software to control it, while searching the Dell support site I cam across R198215.EXE which is a Sony Ericsson Wireless Manager for 5530 cards, this is actually intended for use on the Inspiron Mini 910, but it works a treat on the E6500 too.

The download is 72MB but it only seems to install 5MB of software (you could probably trim that down by removing language dlls), you only need to run the software when you actually want to use the card.

I even got the GPS functioning which is more than even the factory installed drivers could manage, the COM7: port was always silent before, now it happily spits out NMEA sentences

Now to remove as much of ControlPoint as I can get away with, hopefully without having to reinstall XP again.

Dell :: Quickset: Change Volume Dialogue Position

Nov 9, 2008

I couldn't find any info on this and seem to have figured this out. On the Dell I got (Studio 1735 / Windows Vista Home Premium), the volume dialogue (the volume slider that appears when you press the up/down volume media touch buttons) showed up in some strange place in the upper left corner. I wanted it in the lower right corner.

So, follow the following steps:

1. Find the Quickset Icon in the icon tray. Right-click it and "Exit".

2. Fire up regedit (Start > Run > regedit).

3. Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREDell Computer CorporationQuickSet.

4. Backing up is strongly recommended as when performing any operations with the registry. At least back up the part you are changing. To backup, just rightclick the Quickset node and do "Export" to a file.

5. Find VolumeDlgX and VolumeDlgY keys. These hold the x&y position of the volume dialogue. Change them to whatever you want (note that by default the values are in HEX, but you can change them to decimal when setting them). I used the position of BrightnessDlgX/BrightnessDlgY (the Brightness dialogue which did appear where I wanted it) as reference).

6. Reboot the computer.

Note that if you start Quickset without rebooting, it appears to overwrite the registry values with the ones that were there before the change.

Dell :: Accidentally Disabled The Quickset Tray Icon

Feb 14, 2009

I just got my new Studio XPS 16, but accidentally disabled the quickset tray icon. I've checked registry and tried reinstalling quickset, but nothing i do can get it back. Is there any other way to do it without having to reinstall my whole computer? (as i've already installed several other programs, it'll be quite some effort).

Dell Inspiron 7520 :: Quickset And Windows 7 Theme

Apr 14, 2013

I've recently purchased a Dell Inspiron 7520 and installed Windows7. All Dell latest drivers were installed without a problem, however

whenever quickset is being executed windows revert to the default theme complaining that quickset is not compatible with current theme. 

The only change i've made in my theme is the task bar color (i've not installed any third party theme). The above is happening each time

I boot the laptop and quickset runs at startup. I get the same error in every power plan, when i have the laptop in AC and when it's on battery.

Dell :: E4300 WWAN Antenna Alternative

Jan 20, 2010

I have an E4300 and an E6400. The E6400 came with a 5530 WWAN chip, which I would like to move into my E4300 instead. When opening the WLAN/WWAN compartment of the E4300 however there does not seem to be any wiring for the GSM card.

I then found some antenna wires leading to the Latitude ON slot. Since I really doubt I will be getting a Latitude ON chip in the near future, would I be able to run these wires to the WWAN card?

Dell :: Alternative To ControlPoint Connection Manager

May 11, 2009

I have found a good alternative to Dell ControlPoint Connection Manager for my Mobile broadband connection. It's Sony Ericsson Wireless Manager.

It's very simple and worked perfectly without any configuration.
I guess it will only work with the 5530 card, though.

Dell Latitude D630 :: QuickSet Download File Is Faulty

Feb 2, 2015

I wanted to load QuickSet on a D630.

Unfortunately, I can't find the original versions (e.g. 7.1.19) on dell.com and the version that dell.com says to use (v.8.3.17, A51) is broken. If I attempt to run R180759.exe, I get "Invalid self-extractor configuration. This file may be corrupted." (The MD5 checksum is correct.)

Where can I find a working version of the QuickSet installation file?

Sony :: ADH Not Available -- Alternative Warranty

Apr 20, 2010

Just got off the phone with Sony and found out that you can only purcahse the accidental damage coverage from Sony if you buy the laptop from them.

Since I picked up my laptop from Amazon, I cannot get ADH.

I feel pretty strongly about having ADH coverage and am curious if any of you have picked this up through a third party. In particular I would like something that will cover the machine from:

Normal mechanical failure
Water damage
Being dropped/sat on

Sony :: Alternative To Vaio TT

Jun 16, 2009

What other alternatives to the Vaio TT is there out there? I *really* loved my TT, but unfortunately I had two with the same touchpad problem and don't want to risk getting a third (although Sony was very helpful in replacing and trying to resolve the problem).

I especially liked the high resolution, the balanced size, the SSD and the battery time.

Apple :: Macbook - Alternative To VLC

Feb 25, 2009

I just got a Macbook. Very happy with it, its very good. However, I currently have VLC installed so I can played some of my movies which are in .avi and some music. I need a playlist function and able to do full screen. I like VLC, however - i find it is not stable. Sometimes it keeps crashing and also, it does not handle playback smoothly.

I've tried mplayer, it seems good, however it does not support fullscreen mode.

Is there any other alternatives. I might have to download the xvid component for quicktime to enable playback of .avi files and get use to the idea of using itunes to play all my music.

Dell :: Cheapest Place/coupons/deals To Buy A M6400? Or An Alternative?

May 18, 2009

I'm thinking of purchasing the M6400 laptop. I cannot stand my current laptop anymore, the Inspiron 9300 . It doesn't suit the tasks I'm involved with... it was handed down to me by my brother who is a programmer while I'm in the graphics/media field.

So I was wondering if any of you know where I can buy the m6400 for the cheapest price? or perhaps any coupons or deals that you may know of.

I'm a student and can't afford the m6400 at the current price on dell's website or without any coupons or deals...

Also I was wondering what is an alternative laptop to the Dell M6400. I'd love one with a smaller screen size but with a similar performance, although there can be some compromise. I will be using the laptop mainly for architectural renderings, 3d modelling, animation, graphics, multi-tasking between softwares etc... I'd like one with 8GB Ram (no need for ability to upgrade to 16GB etc like the m6400)

I'm hoping the alternative will be much cheaper than the m6400 due to the smaller size, and lower specs etc.

I talked to the dell help guy and he recommended the XPS studio 13 model... i don't trust him as he didn't seem too knowledgeable...

Dell :: E4300 Alps Alternative Mouse Driver/Software?

May 11, 2009

The E4300 uses the Dell Touchpad driver and I think it feels very buggy.
It looks like the Dell uses an Alps hardware

This is probably the first time where I'm quite annoyed by a touchpad/buttons. The touchpad buttons do not always respond immediately, sometimes requiring two presses to click.

And sometimes, when I'm using the touchpad, it will automatically click on a link I didn't intend to.

I know this seems minor, but it's quite annoying at times. I almost returned the laptop because of it, but now I'm trying to live with it but it would be most helpful if there was an alternative.
