Dell Inspiron 15 :: 100% Disk Usage

Dec 5, 2014

I bought four Dell Inspiron 15 this black Friday from the Microsoft Store. All four of those have the exact same problem of 100% disk usage at the start up right out of the box. I don't want to return as I am a lifelong dell user. But If there is no solution of this problem then why the <profanity> dell sold these laptops?

Here is what I have done to try and fix this problem: Used windows repair tools to check all hardware. All hardware came back okay/// Ran chkdsk /f on the drive //// Disabled windows indexing //// Turned power management to Maximum performance //// Downloaded and used the Dell tools to update all drivers //// Checked programs and removed all unnecessary programs //// Used MSCONFIG to remove certain programs from the startup and from running in the background //// Tried Microsoft Fix It to improve performance //// Nothing works.

Dell Inspiron N5050 :: CPU Usage Runs Up To 100% And Freezes Whereas RAM Usage Is Only About 2.7GB

Mar 10, 2013

I have a dell inspiron N5050 core i5, 8GB RAM but when I run applications like GNS3, the cpu usage runs up to 100% and freezes whereas the RAM usage is only about 2.7GB (that is, about 33%). How can I get the RAM to function optimally?

I even had to upgrade to Windows 8 thinking it would solve the problem but here I am stuck with the same problem.

Dell :: M1530 Excessive Disk Usage

Oct 6, 2008

I just got a new Dell XPS m1530:

2.5 Ghz
4 Gb RAM
300 Gb HDD
Geforce 8600
Vista Premium

I noticed that I can hear the hard drive spinning (like that little clicking sound it makes) almost like 70% of the time. Is that normal? I tried killing off some applications but it doesn't stop! Is there any way to find which application is doing this, is this even normal?

Dell Inspiron 15R 5521 :: Can't Create Whole Disk Backup

Oct 8, 2011

I recently bought a new Inspiron 15R 5521 preinstalled with Windows 8and I have never powered it on because I want to make an entire disk backupas it is in a "pure" state.

I removed its harddrive (Western Digital, 1 TB) from my laptop to connectit to my desktop with 2 harddrives (one for system (Windows 7, 64 bit); the otherfor data (2 TB)), but never started the installed system to prevent the systemfrom writing some system information into the Inspiron disk.Instead I inserted a Windows PE CD embedded with Acronis True Image 2013.I chose "Disk Backup". The Inspiron harddrive had 6 partitions.The destination drive (where the image created was to be saved) was the 2-TB data disk.Clicked "Finish" and writing Partition 1...done, 2...ok, .... 6 ok and"Backup Process Failed!" at the final stage.

The final stage seems to be a partition layout.BTW the Acronis backup system has an option "Ignore Errors" (force complete).I gave it a try too, but the image created was incomplete with only 4 partitions.Macrium Rescue Disk is a similar one but with no ignore error option.I also tried this and failed at the final stage. No image created.The error message was "Unable to read from disk".Both the Inspiron disk and the destination drive happened to be Western Digital ones.I tried Western Digital Lifeguard checker on each and found no bad sectors.

Dell :: Additional Hard Disk In Inspiron 1720 Will It Fit Into A Studio 17

Apr 22, 2009

I currently have a Dell Inspiron 1720 with a second hard disk I bought and fitted myself. If I get a Studio 17, will I be able to fit this hard disk into the second bay in there? As far as I'm aware the disk itself should be okay, but the caddy might be slightly different for that model - is that right? If so I'll just buy a new caddy or modify this one - otherwise I'll be 100 down for this hard disk!

Dell :: Upgrading Hard Disk On Inspiron 1520 Running Vista

Jan 6, 2009

I am replacing the installed Seagate Momentus 160 gb 5400 SATA disk with a Seagate Momentus 320gb 7200rpm SATA hard disk as I need the extra space to hold my growing itunes collection and feel the extra speed would also be welcome.

I have the original Dell installation disks (Operating System, drivers etc), the installation disks for the subsequently installed software (other than the freebies including iTunes etc available on the net) and have backed up all my critical data to an external hard drive using the vista backup facility for subsequent restoration once all the software has been installed.

I will of course keep the 160 gb drive available with all it's data intact as a secondary safeguard until I have satisfactorily completed the installation and testing of the new disk.

Dell Inspiron 15 :: Remote Hard Disk Drive Is Not Showing Document Files

Mar 27, 2013

Just purchased an Inspiron 15 laptop with Windows 8.  I removed the hard disk drive from our old Inspiron 6000, installed it in an enclosure, and hooked it to the new laptop to be able to access the document files.  (The hdd from the old computer is a Western Digital 250 GB and was newly installed six months ago).

When I plug in the enclosure, the power light comes on and it shows up on the new laptop as local disk E.  When I click on disk E and go to documents, the only documents shown are three that are saved on the new laptop, and none of the hundreds of documents saved on the hdd from the old computer.  What I can do?
