Dell Inspiron 5520 :: Catalyst Control Center Cannot Load
Apr 18, 2013
My laptop is dell inspirion 5520 with core i5, 8GB memory and amd radeon HD 7670M. When i bought adm radeon switchable graphic works ok. Yesterday, I update the graphic driver. version is 8.933.3.4 from dell website.
Previous version is 8.933.3.0.
After updating, catalyst control center can't load. So, I roll back previous driver version but the catalyst control center can't load.
After reading many reviews here, I finally ordered and received my Studio XPS with the RGBLED screen. I felt the reds were a little harsh so I made a few adjustments in Catalyst Control Center that seemed to help.
But I still wanted to make a few more adjustments...So before I got too deep I checked and saw there was an updated driver. So now I updated the driver and it seemed to install okay except now the Catalyst Control Center won't open.
I wanted to update my ATI CCC driver. So I downloaded the latest ccc, uninstalled from from my laptop, restarted, installed latest ccc, restarted. Now when I start windows 7 the little icon doesnt show up in the system tray.
I have an ati mobility radeon 4200 on windows 7 x64.
My laptop model is HP Envy 6 1178-sai just updated my graphic card (AMD 7670HD series to driver 220.127.116.11) and now the Catalyst Control Centre application is not opening at all, not even an error sign pops upwhat should i do?
i have downloaded Catalyst Control Center several times but it is still not working. I have Paviliion dv6-6120se, AMD radeon hd 6490M and built-in intel GPU hd 3000 both GPUs is working fine but the problem started when i uninstalled the Catalyst Control Center in order to get a new updated one from AMD website. But the AMD site said my version of radeon hd 6490M is not supported anyway i have tried everything i uninstalled the ATI GPU driver and install it again. Somehow I downloaded Catalyst Control Center the and the installation finished and the same problem it is still not working. Now i lost the Catalyst Control Center and the switchable graphics config.
Sorry to bother folks with this nuisance, however, I updated my ATI Mobility Radeon 4650 drivers via Dell's website to 8.65 and ever since, the Catalyst Control Center refuses to run. I politely click on it, the machine thinks for a while and then, rather rudely, simply ignores my request.
I had to reinstall windows because of a virus. Windows 7 Home Premium
I am unable to load the audio and card reader drivers. I've ran all the windows updates and use Dell's support for finding the correct drivers. The system analysis identifies the drivers I need, but they refuse to load.
I am using amazing inspiron 5520 & I am satisfied with it but I just noticed that the touch pad just only used for moving the pointer there are no extra functions such as scrolling ,, zooming ,, etc ... I can't find the touchpad settings in my control panel...
I would like to install the catalys control center. I tried to just download the newest driver 9.8 that comes with it but it will always abort, saying there was no driver found that could be installed.
I've scratched mine up a bit and wouldn't mind ordering a replacement, but I wanted to try successfully removing it first before contacting Dell. I've removed the three screws as outlined in the manual, but it won't budge. Is there a particular way of pushing it out, or maybe I need to be more forceful?
i have a VAIO VGN FS520B,with 760Mb RAM and 80GB harddisk.I Just format my laptop and format the recovery disk as well.
i have download all the drivers for XP PRO and installed them after the XP installation.All went fine bt i cant get the VAIO CONTROL CENTER driver from sony website.I cant use the FN,S1 and S2 buttons.thus
i cant increase/decrease/mute volume,increase/decrease brightness and change external monitor.Actually the brighness is full and the battery drains quickly
I'm using a new Dell Inspiron 15R and ever since I got the laptop, my Windows mobility center keeps popping up without my intervention. This can happen once every 2-3 seconds which means I cannot do anything on the laptop without being interrupted.
There are suggestions to disable it on the registry but I want a fix, besides, I disabled it and the keystroke 'x' is still being hit which means I cant type on notepad or Word without this problem.
Ever since I updated my software from windows 8 to windows 8.1 I lost all the features displayed on the windows mobility center related to the cutomized section from dell. I had to download the drivers to get the gestures configurations for the mousepad, the same happened with the audio drivers I downloaded both from the dell site, but i can't control the usage of the backlight of my keyboard, It turns off like every 20 seconds when there's no activity, and I want to configure it differently and get back the cutomized section of the mobility center,
After upgrading my Inspiron 5232 from windows 8 to 8.1, I'm no long able to launch the mobility center using the quickset key. I could do that before but now, even after downloading and installing the new releases of quickset for w8.1, I can't do it.
The other 2 keys (one for the audio e the ohter one for special functions) are working fine. I can launch mobility center hitting Windows Key + X key at the same time.
If I go to c drive > Program Files > Dell > QuickSet, , I can see quickset.exe and MobilityCenter.exe. If I click on quickset.exe, the mobility center launches just fine; however, clicking on mobilitycenter.exe does not show anything on screen.
I've also tried to change the compatibility settings with no results.
I see in the forum other people reporting issues with the quickset and windows 8.1 using different system. So, it does not seem a isolate problem.
A few days ago I was using my laptop when the notification that I had to plug in the charger or my computer battery would die popped up. So I plugged it in and used it for a few minutes when suddenly the screen went black and the computer just shut off while plugged in. I noticed that my charging cord had a green light when it was plugged into the wall but the light went off as soon as it connected to my laptop. I've tried letting it charge, I've tried holding down the power button, I've tried removing the battery and plugging it back in, and I've tried a newer charging cord but the computer still won't turn on. No lights come on even when it is plugged into the wall.

I have an Inspiron 5520, with Win 7 Home premium 64 bit and an external Western Digital HDD My passport Essential SE (3.0). The laptop is fairly new, I purchased it last June. From first day it seemed that something was wrong with the connection with the hdd. In case I was even touching the cable of the hdd it was disconnecting for example, and since yesterday it doesn't detect it at all!
The light of the hdd goes on, and I can feel it working, but I get no beep sound on my computer, I dont see the drive on device manager, and in general its nowhere!
I tried the hdd in all four USB ports and nothing. The drive has no problem on other computers (with OS Vista and Win 7). My mouse works perfectly on all four usb ports.I updated the drivers for BIOS and chipset, I run pc check up. I checked both laptop and drive with antivirus and antispyware programs. I reinstalled the driver from WD website.

I don't know why, but anything I have open- chrome, games, word, windows, periodicly acts as if it is minimized, except I can still see it. If I am on word, I might be typing. Then it happens, and no matter what I do nothing happens unless I click the window again. That means something else, not an application, is opening and closing in the background. The border color changes when this happens. It happens about every minute to five minutes. I think it might be McAfee, but I'm not sure- I can't uninstall it anyways, wont work enough to uninstall or let me delete the files. I did the whole dell scan thing from their website, everything twas fine it said. Sometimes, my computer also fades black and back on, again and again and again- unless I restart it.
I got a new Inspiron 15R 5520. The problem is I can't boot the laptop from a USB stick like I did on N5040(My 2 years old laptop), and there is no option to do this. First, I hit 'F2' to enter the BIOS setup page, there are only 3 options under the boot device: Hard Drive, CD/DVD, Network. I restart the computer and hit 'F12' to select boot device, still no USB.
Does Dell freeze the function to boot from USB device?
I have had a Dell Inspiron 15R 5520 since late august now. Not long ago an error message appeared saying my charger wasn't working. I knew that my battery was messed up. I went to a best buy and I was told that I had to buy a $80 universal charger. I knew right away this was false so I left. Is there anyway I can get a replacement battery off the warranty or some other way?
