Dell Inspiron 1505 :: McAfee Not Functioning Properly - Errors On CHKDSK

Mar 31, 2013

I have an INSPIRON E1505 with Windows XP.  The McAfee protection was not working properly, so I contacted customer service.  They checked my computer and said that I should contact the computer manufacturer because I have errors on CHKDSK.  I've done some research on this website, but have not been able to find a solution yet.  

I ran the full Dell PC diagnostics, and everything passed except my battery.

I used this page [URL].... to guide me through chkdsk, running it from "my computer" and choosing "scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors."  Phase 2 appeared to be nearly down when I received the prompt, "Windows was unable to complete the disk check."

I'm not sure if this matters, but the computer was not used for 2 years from 2009-2011, as I was out of the country.  After I got it running again and ran updates, it seemed to be working just fine until I recently discovered this issue with McAfee.

Lenovo T400 / T500 :: Right Arrow And Space Key Not Functioning Properly

Nov 14, 2011

Trying to figure out if this is a warrenty issue or some wacky setting that I have somehow turned on. 
When I hit the spacebar, it  is always preceded with the a press of the right arrow. When I press the right arrow, it is followed by a spacebar. Thus I get a kinda cool effect when I edit put the cursor in the middle of a string and hold down space bar such as: "And in the mi d d l e   I   w i l l   s p a c e ."
So, is it safe to assume messed up keyboard?

Dell Inspiron 1545 :: Chkdsk Hangs Then On Restart (Missing Operating System)

Mar 19, 2013

As a routine maintenance task, I ran chkdsk /r on my Inspiron 1545 last night and it hung at 69% in stage 5 for over 10 hours. I figured it was hung for good, so shut the machine off. When I turned it back on I got the black screen with a "missing operating system". Message.

Worst case, is it as simple to get a factory restore by hitting F8 at bootup like I;ve seen posted on the web? If not, I do have the factory system recovery disks I made, but I really want to save what's on the laptop already.

Dell :: Inspiron 1505 And 6400 Keyboard(s)

Jun 23, 2009

I have a question. I'm trying to figure out if the inspiron 1505 and the inspiron 6400 have identical keyboards?

basically, i bought a 6400 a few years ago, it's still under warranty. It got stolen not long after i bought it.

I got my GF a 1505 and considering it was so cheap i didn't bother with an extended plan. now her keyboard is having problems.

So, basically i want to know if i can call dell and get them to send me a 6400 keyboard, (because it's under warranty), then put it in the 1505? then just send them the 1505 keyboard back?

Dell :: 1505 Wireless N-Mini For Inspiron 1525 Laptop

Jan 2, 2009

I just purchased an Inspiron 1525 Laptop it came with the 1505 Wireless N-MINI card. I have a wireless network with the Linksys Model# WRK54G. This network is secured.

I set up connection as WPA-Personal with TKIP, this mirrors my Dell desktop that connects, however it is a G level wireless card. I can not connect to the network even though the signal is excellent.

It may be obvious the fact that the wireless card in the laptop is an N an the router is a G. Will this work or do I have to get the 1395 802 11G Mini wireless card

Dell Inspiron 1505 :: Freezing / Error Code M1004

Jun 30, 2011

I have an Inspiron 1505 about five years old.  Lately my computer has been freezing and shutting down for no reason.  I can be just reading and it'll freeze.  This isn't the first time it has been happening.  Back in April I had the same problem. The error message indicated that my hard drive was going bad so it was replaced.  Now it's doing it again.  This time I got error code M1004.  From what I read, this is something about heating.  What I have noticed is that the bottom of my laptop runs extremely hot.  Will getting a cooling pad?

Dell Inspiron 1525 :: Not Starting Up - Repair Errors

Mar 14, 2013

This morning when I started my computer, I got a Windows error message giving me two options: to launch Startup Repair to try to repair any errors or to start up normally. I chose error repair and it says it is repairing disk errors and might take an hour to complete.  The first time, it said it had fixed errors and I needed to hit "Finish" to restart, which I did, but I ended up with a black screen.

The next time, I chose to start normally, and ended up with a black screen again.

The third time, I did the disk repair again, and go the message that Windows cannot repair my computer automatically, and to hit "finish" to exit and shut down. 

I''m still ending up with the black screen. I tried some trouble shooting tips posted in others' forums, but none of the following have worked:

-Draining residual battery power

-Running on-board diagnostics (all areas Passed)

-Rebooting in Safe Mode (I ended up with the black screen again)

Dell :: Is 's McAfee Security Center Discount Worth It

Dec 15, 2008

I've stayed away from McAfee and Norton for years, so I don't even know what an annual subscription to their virus definitions even costs anymore, BUT Dell's pushing a 1-year subscription McAfee subscription for $79, and 3-years for $99. Comparing the two makes the 3-year subscription look like a pretty good deal. Is it? Cnet seemed to like this latest release, but I don't know how much stock to put in that.

Is $99 for 3 years a good deal, and is McAfee Security Center even any good? Could I get a comparable deal buying/upgrading the subscription after purchasing the computer, or is getting it pre-installed on the Dell pretty much the only way to get it at that price?

I have an XPS M1530 (just got it late august 08)

I recently, for the 1st time, tried to run chkdsk and had it scheduled for teh next time i restarted my computer. however, when i restarted, nothing happened. it went straight to the windows vista logon screen like normal.

i tried a lot of things. chkdsk through GUI (tools tab in properties of disk C and through command prompt.

anyone else have this problem, and if u solved it, how so?

i want to run chkdsk....and this is quite frustrating seeing as how my laptop is pretty new and it wont run something as simple as this.

Dell :: Dropped Laptop, Now Chkdsk Every Boot?

Apr 3, 2009

my girlfriend accidentally dropped her laptop from about a foot off the ground.

The laptop was on during the fall, and remained on afterward. However, needless to say the laptop froze. Did a hard reboot, and Vista took abnormally long to boot, only to find that the computer began to run check disk. After the check, everything past and it booted windows normally.

Seems to work ok, but once you try to run any program the computer eventually locks up and you have to hard power down to get anywhere (no, task manager doesnt work). Once it boots again, it once again wants to run check disk. Is there any way to repair such damage? Could the damage be physical to the drive sense it was dropped?

Sony :: VAIO CHKDSK /R Hung At 13%

Jan 4, 2010

I have a Sony VAIO VGN-N365E that worked great until my son knocked it to the floor. After that, it had trouble booting properly and was making that awful clicking sound.

I ran CHKDSK, and it identified several problems, so I ran CHKDSK /R but it also hung at 13% completed (after running it overnight).

I ran the VAIO Hardware Diagnositcs Quick test, which indicated no errors. But, I also did the Hard Disk verify & repair, and it got stuck at 1% (after 2 hours). When I stopped it,

it did indicate that it found and repaired a problem, so I ran it again, only to get stuck at 2% (overnight). When I stopped it again, it indicated that it found and repaired an problem, but it still can't complete the test .....

Dell Inspiron 9300 :: GPU Fan Not Running Properly

Jan 8, 2010

I am currently in possession of an Inspiron 9300, which was brought to me so I could try to fix it. The user complained that the computer will lock up and artifacts would appear on the screen. After investigating further, I discovered that the GPU fan never runs. I tried temporarily connecting it to the CPU fan pins, at which point the fan would spin: so it seems that the fan is not physically broken. Moreover, when I connected the GPU fan back to its own pins, I could get it to spin using third-party software: so it seems that it can be told to spin by at least the operating system.

Now, the question is: Why won't it spin on its own, even when the card begins to overheat? I've tried using the latest drivers and BIOS from the Dell website to no avail. I also tried to boot into Ubuntu Linux, and the same thing would occur, which suggests that the problem is more fundamental than the operating system. But what could it be? The sensors seem to accurately report the GPU's temperature. And the GPU, when cooled (using an external fan), seems to run without a problem. So whatever is supposed to tell the GPU fan to start spinning just isn't doing its job.

Dell :: There A Hidden Partition

Nov 10, 2008

I have a Dell Inspiron E1505 laptop two years old Windows XP 80GB HD

I notice that my C drive has a capacity of 51.2GB while my D drive has a capacity of16.8 for a total of 68GB. Now I know that I should only expect around 74GB due to the decimal vs. binary issue. But I wonder where is the other 6GB (74-68)? After reading many posts, I am assuming it is on a hidden partition. Thus my questions are...

1. If there is a hidden partition, can I get rid of this partition somehow to get me another 6GB? I am pretty much maxed out on HD so I could use every bit of possible. When I bought the laptop, I made sure to get the reinstall disks. So I have a disk that says "Operating System- Microsoft Windows XP Media Center Version 2005 with Update Rollup 2" and a second disk that says "Drivers and Utilities - For Reinstalling Dell Insiron and Dell XPS Computer Software". So I assume that whatever is on the hidden partition is the same as on the disks, and thus I could get rid of the partition. Agree?

2. If folks suggest keeping the partition, or when I run out of HD again, is it fairly easy to add HD GB to the 1505? Again, I have read tons of posts and it seems pretty simple, even for a newbie like me. Is it pretty easy? I'll probably start a different post if I get to this step.

Dell :: Hard Drive For 1505

Nov 19, 2008

I am attempting to upgrade the hard drive on my Dell 1505 laptop. It has 80GB which is now filled. I want to get a 160GB, 200GB or perhaps even higher (if not too expensive) and have searched the threads here, and researched sites like Newegg to get an idea of what is out there. I wanted to spend around $100 or so. I know I need SATA but other than that, I am wondering..

1. Should I get 1.5 Gb/s or 3.0 Gb/s? What does this mean?

2. Should I get 5400 or 7200? It seems 7200 is a bit more expensive. (Currently I have 5400 and am happy with it.) Not sure I'd notice the difference with 7200.

3. What brands should I look at? Hitachi, Seagate, WD etc. Any to stay away from?

4. Most importantly, based on all of this, any specific suggestions? ...

Dell Inspiron 1300 :: Will Not Power Up Properly - No Fan Noise

Apr 1, 2013

Dell Inspiron 1300, turn the power on, the three led's at the top of the keyboard flash, the power light illumintes then after about 3 or 4 seconds turn off, there is no fan noise or any other noise I can hear.

I have removed the memory, the wireless card, the hard drive and the cd rom, still same symptoms.

Also removed battery and still same symptoms.

Checked battery and power cord on another 1300 works fine.

Right now I am leading toward either a bad invertor or bad motherboard.

I am not sure if the invertor supplys any signal back to mother board to say it is powered up or not. As a test I did unplug the cable from monitor to mother board and tried to turn on unit that way, but still same symptoms.
