My Inspiron 17 3721 won't turn on and beeps and pauses for a second and beeps again. It is just a black screen and to make it stop beeping I have to hold my power button down for 5 seconds. It is a windows 8.
My laptop INSPIRON 17 (3721) has problems to start and makes 5 beeps. I saw in other forum that it is a matter of the coin battery. I have already changed it and it is still doing the same. It doesn't show video, there's no fan noise but the power led is on. After about 5 minutes the fan starts.
I had to have my motherboard replaced because of some audio issues and after I got my laptop back i noticed something that hadn't been happening before.
As soon as I turn on my laptop the fan start working extremely loud with cold air coming out. I know that the fan is supposed to be this loud when laptop is close to overheating, but I don't see the point of being this loud while everything is on normal temperature (checked with SpeedFan) and laptop doesn't feel hot at all.
I'm setting up a my new Dell Windows 8 laptop.Now, I'm trying to create a set of recovery disks in case anything goes wrong, I'm using Dells own software. Unfortunately there seems to be an issue with, in other words its pish, and it fails after creating the first disk when it needs to create four. Every time I put a second DVD in it just ejects with no error message.it seems that a lot of people around here are having the exact same issue. It wouldn't be such a problem if you could boot into the recovery partition by hitting f8 during boot, the only way you can access it,though, is by holding down shift in windows 8 and pressing restart which is absolutely no use if windows won't boot!! I've got a hold of Acronis True Image 2013.
My question is can I make recovery media by creating a boot disk and then creating and image of the PBR partition, which I'm sure holds the recovery data? I can't back up the whole system as there is now 120Gb in data on it. I don't wan to back up the whole system, I just want to be able to restore it to factory default,in case anything ever goes on it, by using DVD media.
When I try to power on my Inspirion 17 3721 it makes a beep/ticking sound. It is continious and will not stop. Its steady beep every second. I have tried to relieve the static power, I have taken out the memory stick and reinserted. I do not know what to do.
Our company recently purchased two Dell Inspiron 3721 Laptops (Windows 7) with two SuperSpeed USB 3.0 Docking Stations. Both laptops are fine and can connect to the network, but both network adapter on the docking stations don't seem to work on either computer. The lights on the network adapters for both docking stations don't light up and the adapter settings on the laptops show the LAN connections as "Network cable unplugged." The cables work, as we tested them on the laptops themselves. We've also tried uninstalling and re-installing the drivers with no success.
PXE-E53: No boot filename received.The client received at least one valid DHCP/BOOTP offer, but does not have a boot filename to download. There are several possible causes:
• The 060 DHCP option is not set during installation, on Windows Server 2008 with the DHCP service, is installed locally. To resolve this issue, modify the following PXE configuration option if DHCP service is required to be installed locally: Open the PXE Configuration Utility, select the PXE Server tab, and for DHCP Server discovery select the No DHCP server installed on PXE server (Use DHCP port) option.
• The DHCP Server and the PXE Server were located on the same server, but one of them was moved to a different server. This would result in an incorrect PXE Server configuration. To resolve this issue, reinstall the PXE Server component of the Altiris Deployment Solution.
• The DHCP relay agent, either a Proxy DHCP Server or a switch configured with helper addresses, is not configured correctly. For example, if DHCP and PXE are on separate servers, the DHCP relay agent needs to have both addresses in its configuration. To resolve this issue, correct the DHCP relay agent configuration.
• If the Microsoft DHCP service is installed on the PXE server, but is disabled or unconfigured, Altiris PXE Setup configures PXE to work with the local DHCP service (even if the DHCP service is disabled). This causes the PXE server to not respond to PXE clients that get a DHCP address from DHCP services running elsewhere on the network. To resolve this issue, remove Microsoft DHCP services from the PXE server and reinstall the PXE Server component of the Altiris Deployment Solution.
• A firewall or network security software is enabled in the network environment.
Windows 8.1 kept popping up to install update. I would refuse it. Then recently it updated itself. After that, i noticed it took a little longer for my laptop to boot. It would show a blue screen for a little bit then it would boot. Yesterday, I received an error (can't remember what it said) needed to restart because of an error. I ran the Hard Disk Test and Quick and then the extensive test. it stops at one sec remaining and noting happens. I did get a fatal device hardware error. Can the update to Windows 8.1 cause this to happen?
I have a inspiron 15 laptop and keep getting a message "USB not recognized. The USB device attached to this device has stopped working or windows doesn't recognized.." thing is there isn't a device attached to the computer when I get these messages.I've updated the BIOS, driver updates etc and still get the message.
My laptop had to be replaced by Dell a second time within the last four years recently. I shipped it in and it took about a week and they placed an order to begin processing a shipment for a replacement. The replacement shipped out on Thursday. I had to do my own investigating to get a tracking number because the reps were useless.
I go to FedEx to check the number and find out its getting overnighted (YES!) but then to my horror, I noticed it's getting this to an old address I lived at YEARS ago. The thing I find funny about this is that, even when the laptop was replaced the first time, nothing was shipped to that address it was shipped to me at school. When I received the box to ship in my current unit to repair, it was sent to my current address. I have no clue where they got this address .....
I have a new Dell Inspiron 11, 3000 series laptop. It has given me this message at least 3 times recently, "your battery is temporarily disabled. please turn off your computer and try again when the unit is back to the operational temperature." I ran the Dell Diagnostic and it didn't find anything. I also used the Dell Technical Support, but nothing came up there either.
I have had my Dell computer for almost 1.5 years. Yesterday while working on my laptop, I got a message saying the battery was critically low and that the PC was going to shut off. After making sure it was plugged into an outlet, I tried to restart the PC. Upon doing so, I received a message saying the battery was not recognized, not compatible, and would not be charged by the system. Now every time I start my PC, I get the same message. It does continue to charge the battery. It is the original battery that I received from Dell.
I can press enter and get passed it but it is rather annoying. I am afraid at some point that it will stop working altogether. What can I do to fix this? Has my battery gone bad? I don't think that is the issue because it still works, even when I don't have it plugged in to an outlet. Do I need to modify something in the boot menu?
I am using a Wireless lan long range usb adapter from Engeniustech called EUB-362EXT product. I entered the mac address in the firmware of my router and any place in my house I can pick up a wireless signal. This device will pick up a wifi signal and amplify it so all I do is connect the EUB-362EXT unit to a strong antenna and I can pick up a signal in my basement but the router is on my second floor.
I would like to use the same setup on my laptop when I am on the road because the internal wifi of the laptop is weak. I can disable the internal wifi but would like to know how I can create a a wifi network profile in my laptop that will allow me to enter the mac address of the adapter. I am using Windows XP sp2.
