It's been some time since I've sought assistance here, and I've returned now that my mother has purchased for herself a Dell Inspiron 1564. Being a typical technology-impaired elder, she asked me to set up her system for her. Specifically, she wants me to connect her to our internet. However, I can't for the life of me figure this out.
My router is set on WPA security, but I was able to connect to it without a problem when I purchased my current system - input a password and go. When I try to connect it on her system, it bypasses the password prompt and simply states that it cannot connect. As I try to figure out the problem, I am met with several warnings along the lines of "connect a cable" or "connect a network adapter."
Her system is this laptop from Best Buy: http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Dell+-+I...&skuId=9693191 .....
I just bought a Dell Inspiron 1420 from my colleague..my first impression was, this is a great laptop..
Due to some problem with its internal wireless device, I decide to buy a DLink DWL-AG660 wireless cardbus adapter from the net..
When the card arrived, I try to install it & unfortunately, it cant fit in...I google the net & just found out that the AG660 is using a 32 bit pcmcia card bus adapter & my inspiron 1420 is equipped with (maybe) an express card slot..
I had to install a new hard drive into my above laptop, eventually i've gotten everything working except the above video card which allows me access to wireless networks. i can't get the internet at all on my pc so i'll need to be able to save down the drivers on to disk then install on pc. Where i'll find the drivers.
I got a second hand Dell Inspiron 1525 about 2 years ago, it was working fine till the hard drive stopped workinga few months ago. i got a new hard drive and put that in and loaded software and Vista OS.Now the wireless card won't recognize the adapter.I have tried all different ways and adapters and it still won't work.
im having a problem with my 1525 inspiron laptop, which i have had for a couple of years. The problem started when installed windows 7. My wireless minicard stops working anytime i try playing an online game. The mouse starts freezing and then the wireless card would stop working. The only way can it working again is to reboot the laptop or put it to sleep the start it up again.
Anyone has a review on Inspiron 1564 please? I am debating on this one with studio 15. This inspiron has numeric keypad. That's why I love it. Since, I personalize this one. So I think that it is similar to stuido 15. However, studio 15 has i5 520. I dont know i5 430 is good or not? When will Dell have i5 520 on inspiron 1564?
Maybe what I write sound something repetitive BUT I am looking for a fix. I have tried to unbrick my laptop with the bootable USB flash with my correct A06 BIOS.WPH file extracted from 1564_A06.exe. After plugging in the Power cord and after releasing the END key that I hold for 3 seconds, fan starts spinning BUT there is no light on Power LED and it stays dead with fan spinning. I left the laptop for almost 30 minutes but didn't see anything happening....
Recently laptop shuts down unexpectedly even when battery shows 40%. When it restarts with mains on, battery shows 0% power. When I check the battery health, it shows "Your Battery is able to charge normally. However, you may begin to notice reduced operating time because your long-term battery life is decreasing". I know my battery possibly needs to be replaced, but don't understand why battery indicating incorrectly?
I Have Dell Inspiron 1564 i5 Edition And From Last 6 months It's Dvd Writer started Giving Problems. Initially It Used To Read Some Dvd And Other Shown As Blank But Now A Days It Doesnt Read Dvd At All.
how to upgrade memory my notebook, because I have a notebook inspiron 1564 with 4Gb RAM and I'd change to 8Gb RAM. But searching int internet I' ve found only memories with frenquency 1333Mhz and the memories in the my notebook are 533MHz.
Is there any problem and is it possible upgrade memory ispiron 1564 4Gb to 8Gb?
The SW on my bios is A06. I downloaded the A13 ( the windows executable ) and ran it as admin. A windows poped up warning that the pc would reboot after completion. I click on Flash, a CLI poped up, done a few things and showed a success message. But when I go into the BIOS, it's still ver A06. By the way my os is Win 7 x64 ....
My dell laptop worked perfectly for around 6 months. After that i have had to use my TV as a monitor via HDMI. Basically on start up the screen goes black and slowly turns to white with multi-coloured lines running vertically down it. It first started to play around not long after i had bought it, the screen would freeze and seem to slowly become faded and lose colour but if i flipped the screen up and down a little it would work fine again but after abut a month of being able to jiggle it back to a working state it completely went. I have spoken to a local PC reapir shop who have quoted me around £150-175 to fix this.
I have researched this problem thoroughly on the internet to find that this particular model is prone to issues like mine and others in regards to its screen. Using my TV as a monitor, the visuals are all fine.
I have downloaded the latest drivers for literally everything. Bios, Graphics... You name it, I have tried it in multiple attempts to try and fix this.
My laptop is no longer under warranty but this issue seems to affect a lot of this particular model.
I have 2 units of dell inspiron but i forgot the exact model unit maybe 1564 or 1654. my problem is that both of unit are broken. im happy that i use my units for about 5 years. both of unit are broken, the one unit was running but its not open the screen. and the other one is when i turn it on there`s something beeping 5-10 continuous beeping 2 times in everytime i open it. but the unit were not open. i cant retrive my files on my unit..
Laptop: Dell Inspiron 1564 OS: Windows 7 Home Problem: Does not turn on.
Cause: Was working fine until last night when I shut it down, did not turn on when I tried to turn it on later in the morning. No known cause.
Details: My laptop does not turn on in anyway - with charger put on or without charger.
It was working fine when I shut it down the other night but when I tried to turn it on in the morning, nothing happened. When I press the power-on button, just battery light (of the 3 lights on laptop) glows for a while and then it goes off as well. Other than that, nothing happens at all. I have tried taking the battery out and putting it in, plugging ang unplugging AC - nothing works.
I left the laptop unattended whole day and when came back, I tried to turn it on and the battery and power lights both glowed this time and continued glowing but screen was blank and no sound nothing happened for a few minutes and then I powered it off. Tried to turn on again, nothing happened, back to old problem as stated earlier i.e. only the battery light glows for a while and then goes off ....
My Dell 1505 wireless N card is a constant headache, If I hide my ssid the card detects and connects to my router but I can never access the internet. It may work sometimes but most of the time my SSID has to be on.
I have tested this with two different routers and the results were the same, vista shows local access only . I have tried using drivers from laptopvideo2go and reimaging the computer, I am now fed up and want to get a new wifi car
I've tried to collect all the info I can. Please add as you seem fit.
Recently returned a dell 1745 due to bad fan control. While idling the fan would rew up to max each 3-5 minutes easily detectable by speedfan (see the last link). The core temperatures would slowly ("") increase to around 38 degrees when the fan starts at horrendous pace for ~10-15 seconds and cool the cores to sub-30 degrees and the whole show starts again. This is a showstopper and noone should really by these products.
It is as though the cpu fan only has two paces. Silent and Noisy. There shoudl of course be some kind of gradient in the fan speeds at different temepratures but his has not been implemented though very easy for BIOS coders to do so. The fan vigorously tries to cool the cpu to 30 degrees each time it hits ~40 degress - we're talking intel cpus that could easily go to 60-70 degrees without fuzz.
While idling any laptop should keep a constant temperature - the current lineup of inspirons and studios (at least 1564, 1745, 1747 an 1749) cannot achieve this and unleashes fan hell very often.
Untill fixed (which dell seems very reluctant to) don't buy dell. It's simply not worth it.
This have nothing to do with throtteling. And don't even get me started on doing something "cpu intensive" like browing.
During updating BIOS with this i have error "BIOS update failed! Image verification failed. Error code -200" and laptop was frozen, keyboard and touchpad doesn't respond. After 30 min i remove AC and battery from my laptop and try to power on again, but dell not respond.
The dell support center PC Check showed my hard drive funnel seek test failed. Before I ran the PC check, the laptop flashed and shutdown. I restarted in safe mode and backed up all of my files, shut down the laptop again and restarted.
I am currently rebooting the laptop, and have inserted the Dell Diagnostics and utilities CD and testing my hard drive. the following error code keeps occurring..No additional sense information
Test Results: Fail Error Code: 0F00:1332 Msg: DISK - Block 4507 : Interrupt Request (IRQ) did not set in time
The same message also occurred with the following Block Numbers, with the same error code:
