Originally it's comes with vista, but I format it and installed win 7, after 8 months suddenlly I surprised that the webcam are stopped working, I tried to install from dell support but useless, what shall I do?
It can be work if i reinstall win vista again and by usb flash memory install all the drivers, it will work or not?
Is this problem because of some windows 7 updates? because they are not genuine copies?
my windows vista and windows seven are trial version for 30 days ...
I have an Inspiron 1525 with 4gb RAM and 285gb hard drive (158gb free). Processor is 2.17gHz, dual core. O/S Vista. Up until very recently, it's been running fine. But within the last week or two, it has gotten veerrryyy slow. The fan seems to be running more often (maybe it's my imagination), and the video is halting even for a simple game of Free Cell. I have ccleaner which I run regularly. I have also run two different spyware programs and Norton Utilities optimizer.
I just had to replace my desktop computer a few months ago. I certainly don't want to have to replace this one too.
I bought my new latop in October and would like to restore it to it's origional factory settings, however I have been unable to do this as I have been told a number of different actions to try by PC performance and none of them work:
First I was told to press f8 on a reboot then select repair my computer so I pressed f8 and there was no option to repair my computer;
Second I was told to restart and press f12 insert a blank dvd and boot using cd/dvd which would create a boot disc which in turn would restore to factory settings, after choosing boot from cd/dvd my laptop just restarts as normal without creating a boot disc;
I was then told to burn recovery (which was on a small drive D:) to disc first then boot from cd/dvd which has no effect again windows starts normally.........
So I had a look around this recovery file and found a setup icon that said factory restore when I clicked on it, I got the message ERROR: the factory image could not be found please reinstall using the operating system media dvd.
My Dell Inspiron 1525's touchpad no longer works. It worked fine this morning. I updated security essentials and windows and then it stopped working after updates had installed. I tried system restore and it still does not work. I can use a corded USB mouse, but I really need the touchpad.
After connecting to the internet on my laptop(Dell inspiron 1525, Windows Vista), the internet connection will work great for 5 minutes or less than it slows down drastically or essentially not working at all. If I disconnect and reconnect it will work again but just for a short amount of time. The wireless connection works great on other laptops, tablets and mobile. I have Mcafee antivirus, and it could not detect any malware or viruses. Tried restoring the computer to factory settings and the internet stays connected for what seem a few minutes longer.
My warranty has no run out so dell can't actually support me. Whenever I try to use the camera the blue light comes on as if to say that it is working but the picture is just black. When I click to take a picture regardless a box pops up that says "Unable to capture a photo. Please reconnect your camera and try again". But if the camera is integrated how can disconnect it? Have tried reinstalling drivers and even the webcam manager itself but it has not worked.
have Dell Laptop Series N5050 with Window 7 Home basic. Its Webcam Drivers are not working properly. I want to have a Video Chat but due to the webcam problems I am unable to do so. I use Dell drivers to update them but No solution found.
cant run launch diagnostic download. Today when I opened laptop from "hibernate" I got a blue screen that said "windows crash dump". My security is updated and running. Doesn't look like anything has happened. Who do I contact for this?
To all of you who have had or still having problem in getting your webcam to work or get detected by your laptop try this.
Almost everyone who has formatted their hard drives and/or done a clean install of the OS has come into contact with this problem from what I have read... Uninstall all Dell webcam software and download and install ManyCam webcam software, by all accounts the Dell webcam software is the villain here.
Once this is installed your webcam should now be detected by the system and now work. ManyCam is a freeware program I have no means of testing this due to the fact all my systems are M1330 XPS.
just had the dell tech round on friday to replace my motherboard, and have since discovered my webcam isnt working.
I get the message "No supported camera detected, please plug in to continue" in Dell Webcam Manager.
Also the webcam does not show up in device manager.
When the system powers on the webcam light does not flash...
So basically, i think he forgot to plug in the webcam to the new motherboard, or its a loose connection, does this sound about right??
If so would it be a reasonably easy job for me to rectify?
I cant really be bothered with going through the hassle of diagnosing the fault with someone over the phone who i cant really understand, then have to find some free time to have the tech come round and fix it, when he will probably mess something else up in the process.
I have the service manual for this laptop (M1530) but cant seem to find anything in there.
Dropped computer during move,lost all the disks and paperwork.Hard drive was damaged so purchased new one locally..Downloaded ISO win 7 86,installed used original validation.It booted up all fine but no drivers for mouse or Ethernet or wifi actually no drivers.Mouse works.
How can I download the drivers and save them to CD/DVD and install on machine.
I am trying to download drivers for a Dell Inspiron 14Z -N411Z to a USB drive through another laptop, because the hard drive on that Dell completely gave up. There is no installation software disc as it was on another partition on that same hard drive.
When I attempt to install the drives required to the USB drive on my Toshiba, it first wants to install the dsd.exe file before I can download the drivers. After I downloaded that dsd.exe file, I don't seem to find a way to install the required drivers as well. the DellSystemDetect.exe file wants to do that for me, but it is not on the correct laptop.
What do I need to do, to get those drivers downloaded on the USB, so I can complete the installation. I already installed the Windows 7 Home Premium (x64) on the Dell laptop.
I recently bought a dell inspiron e1705 on ebay and I put a hard drive in it and installed the operating system and now I need software and I tried using my dell downloads and it says in internet explorer (an add-on for this website failed to run) and it won’t work.
I have dell inspiron 3521 with windows 7 64 bit installed on it . I don't know from where i can download the wireless card driver. I tried to download the driver from dell website but it did not installed the wireless driver. I am unable to download my wireless driver for my dell 3521.
If you navigate to the drivers' download page for Inspiron 7520, you will notice under "BIOS" that there is a version A11 (released date: October 15, 2012) available for download.However, the small print says "Applies to: Dell Vostro 3560 system BIOS". Is it safe to flash my current BIOS version A04 to A11 for my Inspiron 7520? If not, why is that item listed in the first place?
