Dell Inspiron 1501 :: WinPhlash User Interface Has Stopped Working

Nov 6, 2014

I have an Inspiron 1501 - it's old but it woks great..  I tried updating the BIOS following the instructions on the Dell site. I repeatedly get the Winphlash User Interface has stopped working. What is the proper technique to do this BIOS update without errors? I don't get any instructions on line - only a DOS type window then it disappears.

Also on the Dell site re Drivers, It finds my Service Tag  and then I get the message that my operating system Windows Vista Home Basic is not available on the machine --but it was bought from DELL with this OS?

HP/Compaq :: "network Store Interface Service Has Stopped Working" / HD Space

Apr 16, 2009

this is a popup i'm getting everytime i boot up now. it started happening after i went through msconfig to disable some things at startup. it doesn't seem to be comromising anything in use but i am curious what it is and how to make it stop.

and on an unrelated note, i'm wondering if i can't get more room out of my HD. my model is advertised at 320, but only shows 286 available. i know it's always less than whats advertised but that seems like more than usual. i also have used up about 250 in files and programes yet only have 13.6gb left. i've turned off restore point, could there be anything else bogging down my HD that i can't see? also is there a way to clear out the recovery drive and add on the free space to my c drive?

Dell :: LiveCam.exe Has Stopped Working On Inspiron With Vista

Apr 12, 2009

I am getting the above msg when trying to use the built-in Web cam for Video or for picture capture, i.e. photos.

I removed everything with the Dell camera and reinstalled the Creative Labs Dell Webcam Manager , 140 mb. No joy
I also installed from the Dell site "input device drivers"- "Creative labs driver, R2RC1, A04", no joy.

Webcam works fine with Messenger therefor I am cautious to reinstall/remove, disable or so the Webcam Device in Device Manager since I dont want to ruin it further

I did a bit of searching and noticed others found solutions mainly by reinstalling drivers though this has not worked for me. Would someone have any other tips?
Here some PC details: Dell Inspiron 1525, Vista Home Premium, SP1, 2GB RAM, one reimage done around 4 months ago, not sure if it happened because of that)

Dell Inspiron 3521 :: Touchscreen Stopped Working?

Aug 27, 2013

I recently purchased a stock-standard Inspiron 3521 Touch running windows 8.

The touchscreen worked for the first few days but has subsequently stopped working which I suspect is due to windows/other software updates.

The system is not showing/recognising any Tablet and Pen hardware/drivers.

Dell :: Inspiron 1720 Fan Stopped Working/sound Issue

Aug 26, 2009

I have an Inspiron 1720 laptop. It will be 2 years old this coming Christmas...and I ain't got the extended warranty so no go on sending this thing back to dell.

Recently within the past week or so the 1 and only fan has stopped working on it. Once I found out it stopped working I went and download SpeedFan to check on my temps and they was pretty high it showed the above normal arrow and sometimes even the flame icon next to the temps. So I have not been using my laptop since. I tried taking this thing apart but I have had no luck. I'm not very experienced in working on laptops.

~~UPDATE~~
My fan is working now. I don't know if I jumped to conclusions whenever my fan wouldn't turn on after a good 20 mins or so of just web surfing. So I decided to just hop on a game and play. Then there it was not even 5 mins into playing the fan kicked in and starting pushing out hot air very nicely, but I did look at the temps on SpeedFan and during gameplay my GPU would reach 140F and CPU would get at like 130-135F. My idle temps are still high in my opinion. The GPU idles in these ranges 125-130F and CPU at 100-110F. Is these temps normal? .....

Dell Inspiron 5547 :: Touchpad Working Then Stopped Responding

Dec 5, 2014

I have a new Inspiron 5547 w/Windows 7, everything is working well except for the Touchpad.  Initially the touchpad was working fine, then it stopped responding, only when I attached a USB mouse could I use the laptop.  I re-installed drivers and the Touchpad worked correctly again. A few days later, the trackpad stopped working again....reinstalled drivers yet again and everything worked fine. Now for the 3rd time in 4 days the trackpad is not working. Is this a hardware or Windows 7 Issue?

Dell Inspiron 3520 :: WiFi Working Fine But All Of A Sudden Stopped

Dec 29, 2012

I recently bought a Dell Inspiron 3520 the wifi was working fine, and then it all of a sudden stopped. I already went and bought a new router, and tried using my Ethernet cable. The new router hasn't changed it but i can connect to my LAN network with the Ethernet cable. I am not satisfied with the LAN network because I bought a laptop so i could use it all of the house. I will not purchase anything else because i already bought an 85 dollar Belkin router.

Dell Inspiron 5521 :: Laptop CPU Fan Stopped Working Completely And Then Worked Back Again?

Apr 13, 2013

It's not like normal fan working when computer gets cooler stops, when it's heating up starts working. It happened 7 days ago. And that never happened since then. But I'm still wondering why it's happened. My laptop is just a few days old. I was checking my air vent and suspiciously was being silent. After keep checking 5 to 10 min the fan still wasn't not working. And then I started running heavy software like video converting program. CPU was working 100% when I load this, fan still was not working laptop bottom was getting heated up. Then decided to check my cpu temp and installed everest ultimate edition. Everest doesn't recognize both cpu temp and fan.

I restarted laptop because my laptop was getting hotter. And when I restart it, laptop fan started working normally. CPU temp, fan speed are recognized in everest software. After I noticed that in system cooling policy settings was in passive mode on battery. Why it's happened? I doubt it's cord unplugged or sth. Cause software couldn''t detect both cpu temp and fan. Remember, after I restarted software detected the fan and temp, all fan thing go back to normal. And if it was loose connection why it's worked back again when I restarted and still working. I'm not able to give it back.

Dell :: Inspiron 1501 Battery Life

Dec 8, 2008

I'm having some battery life issues with my laptop, and i wanted to see if the performance of my battery is normal, or if something is wrong.

At first, my battery started draining really fast so i replaced the battery in July, and now im seeing the problems again.

Basically, I need my laptop for class, and i have microsoft word, wi-fi running, and a web browser during that time period. My brightness is set on about 4, and the battery option is on portable/laptop (note: i have tried max battery with same result)

i'm getting less than an hour of battery life..

i was wondering if there was anything i could possibly do to improve this, perhaps purchase a 9-cell battery, or if there might be something more wrong with my computer that i should get checked, i'm not sure if this is normal battery life, but i don't remember it dying that quickly before.
