I bought A new Dell Inspiron 3521 Laptop and after installing windows 8 I was about to download the drivers from dell site any way I found that all drivers links are not working and it'd always popup a message saying :
The requested file could not be downloaded. Invalid File I.D. The file does not exist.
I tried to change my country but the same results coming out...
My laptop starts up okay but as soon as I open some programs it freezes up every time. I have been using it in safe mode and that seems to work better but it still occasionally freezes. I have read that I should do system restore but there are no restore points so I can't do that. I haven't downloaded any new programs in a while so I'm not sure why it's doing this all of a sudden. Its only a few months old.
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..
I'm experiencing some problems with my brand new laptop. In fact, for some reasons, sometimes when i turn on my computer and i try to open my DVD drive it won't open. I have to restart my laptop to do so again with no problems.
Frequently have the problem of getting stuck on web pages and having to close out the page and then open it up again. For example, am selling items on ebay and during the listing process - particularly when loading a photo - page freezes and am unable to navigate up or down or click on anything to move out of the page. When I attempt to reload the page the laptop seems to make an effort to do this but with no results. Have been clearing browsing data to see if that works but no luck. I am running Windows 7.
I am having an issue with the screen of my laptop. had bought the laptop jus 3 days back.. :( the problem I am facing is that... once I close my lid and open in in a few seconds, it still gives me a blck scree which does not respond. however If the let the lid be closed for a longer period life 10 sec it works normally. Previously today I experienced an other issue, that was, once I closed the lid and opened it back, it gave me a black screen with one bright spot. bt this was gone after pressing the power button a few times.
I don't know what it is with this laptop and messengers. But NOTHING wants to work. Heres a list of problems
1) AIM wont open (fixed, I had to change port number) So now AIM works on iChat and Adium
2) MSN wont open on the actual application (Mac Messenger) I want to webcam chat with people, and it just WONT start. It starts on adium since I checked the box to use http or something, but I can't webchat on adium.
When I try to open messenger, it says I am not connected to internet, which I clearly am...
I checked my routers firewall. And I am not too sure how to change things on the macs firewall. I just want to use messengers..
I have an e4300 with 4 gigs of ram and Win7. I recently downloaded the latest Windows Update as prompted by the OS, and now I'm having an issue where everytime I start the computer it asks me to set the page file size. It's always listed as 0 megs.
So, I got to reset it using the box marked managed by the system, and when I restart the same thing happens.
So instead I chose a custom size 1.5xRam for lower limit, 3x ram for higher limit, and still eveytime I restart it gives me an automatic pop-up telling me my page file is set to zero.
My latest odyssey with Dell has lasted over 3 weeks and ended in utter disappointment; the experience has been both frustrating and time consuming, but I notice it's not all that dissimilar to some experiences others have posted about, so I'm hoping someone can point me in the right direction.
On 11/24 I ordered a Studio 1737 with an estimated ship date of 12/5. As has been the case for many others, Dell generated a separate order for the Bluetooth module, and like many others I found this frustrating and nonsensical, but I didn't rush to judgment immediately, I decided I'd wait and see if they actually shipped it separately and uninstalled.
Of course, they did, and I received the component on 12/8. I filled out the return request form and asked for an RMA for the component, because I placed the order with the expectation it would be installed professionally. The response I received essentially excused the practice that caused the module to be shipped separately with no disclaimer, and denied me an RMA for the module. They wouldn't let me return it. I went back and forth with this guy for a week, exchanging 6 emails total, each one explaining my disappointment in greater detail than the last. After 6 emails, I still have not received an RMA. Each email merely deflected my concerns and ignored my original request by assuring me not only that I would receive my system and I would be overwhelmingly satisfied, but that he would personally see that the order was expedited. I fell for this, until last friday, 12/12, when Dell notified me that my order had been delayed for a second time and required my consent to be processed; I logged into the order status site as the email required to provide consent, and then shot an admittedly discourteous email back to the guy who'd been feeding me disinformation for a week to avoid giving me an RMA for a lousy $20 part that plainly wasn't delivered in the condition I expected (I was really annoyed). On Monday, 12/15, I received a response for him, this time assuring me that the system would ship within 24 hours. This pacified me until about an hour later, when I received the email from Dell finally canceling my order completely.
I responded one last time (much more composed and gracious) to tell him I was receiving conflicting information regarding the order status, and to ask which was accurate. This morning, 12/16, I received a terse response from his manager telling me that the order had been canceled "due to unavoidable reasons", suggested that I contact the sales department to have my order reinstated, and asked that I reply to him if I still want an RMA for the bluetooth module (a line his subordinate fed me before, to which I responded in the affirmative).
What do you think I filled out the return request form for, or all the emails I wrote requesting a return?
I'm completely bewildered. I've wasted enough time talking to these people, and I don't intend to continue. I don't even care about returning the thing anymore. The frustration and time lost towers over the lousy $20 lost on the bluetooth module. All this is added to the fact that Dell delayed my order twice, then canceled it blaming the federal mail order rule, despite the fact that I followed their instructions to prevent that. I don't know where to begin.
I'd like to send a letter detailing this experience detailing my frustration to Dell, on the off chance that someone there is even the slightest bit interested in customer service (then I plan on meditating for about a week and exiling this experience from my mind completely.) I just don't know where, if anywhere, to direct my complaint (the returns department obviously isn't the place, since they don't even know what to do about returns).
They didn't charge me for the system they canceled, only for the bluetooth module that should have been canceled with the system, but if I go through all the hoops they want me to to recover the lousy $20 I'll lose my mind, so it's not about money. I basically want to give them a piece of my mind, cut my losses, and be done with it. Any advice?
I have a whole bunch of data and stuff in "huge number" of old CDs. I want to consolidate them into 2 or 3 1Tb HDDs.
The CDs could be Data, Audio, Bootables.
I could go into Windows Explorer and do the drag & drop / Copy / Paste thing. A couple of issues. Windows Explorer is SLOW, and the STATUS it shows when copying files is not REAL. I'd like a REAL percentage status showing copier.
Something that helps me spend the least amount of time, attention on making this happen. Minimum Intervention.
Ideally it would be a program / app that does the following:
1 - Does fast copying
2 - Automatically creates new folders in a specified location as it copies & places the content of the next CD
3 - Prior to copying it asks what MODE the CD needs to be backed up > ISO, Simple File Copy, Audio (Raw / mp3), "Name the Folder".
4 - Copies showing REAL status and REAL (estimated) time left until this one is complete
5- Once completed with one CD / Disk > It NOTIFIES with Visual / Sound clue > EJECTS the Disk > Prompts again for next disk > Asks same "WHAT KIND OF COPY" question for the next disk. > Does this until all Disks are backed up - Like a BATCH of them are done.
Does some kind of Cataloging as it copies. Maybe asks for Categories / Labels / Tags.
Last month my Dell Studio 1555 broke and I can not turn it anymore. I have a new computer by now, but there are many files on my old computer which I wish to transfer to my new computer, as they are quite important to me. How do I go about doing this without having to use an Ethernet cross-over cable; or otherwise remotely power on the laptop?
Unfortunately, I can't find the original versions (e.g. 7.1.19) on dell.com and the version that dell.com says to use (v.8.3.17, A51) is broken. If I attempt to run R180759.exe, I get "Invalid self-extractor configuration. This file may be corrupted." (The MD5 checksum is correct.)
Where can I find a working version of the QuickSet installation file?
have a DELL studio 1735 laptop that I upgraded from Vista home premium to Win 7 Ultimate. I formatted the HDD and did a complete install. I also increase the processor from T5600 to T8300. I have a BIOS of A04 and want to upgrade to A05. I get a message "Quote" you can't upgrade to A05 Bios cause your ROM IMAGE FILE IS MISSING. Though it is working fine I need the A05 bios.
