Dell Inspiron 7520 :: Downloads Website Were Unable To Install
Mar 15, 2013
I just bought an Insprion 7520, and upgraded the windows os to ultimate. However after reading few reviews of this os, I wanted to switch back to Home Premium so that it would be like I bought it. However after installing Home Premium, some of the drivers that I downloaded from the Dell Drivers and Downloads website were unable to install. These problems have also lowered the laptops score in the Windows Performance Index. The GRAPHICS score went from 6.6 to 5.6 and RAM socre 7.9 to 7.7.
-Intel Rapid Start Technology : "The system does not meet the requirements" (It did when I bought it. What has changed I cannot understand.)
-Seagate Firmware v 0005DEM1, A05 : Got a FAILED message in the dos screen.
-Dell-Hardware version GS002D, A02 : Got a message saying "Not compatible with x64 systems".
I have the service tag and the express service code if needed.
Is there any way that when i click clear downloads in the safari downloads window that the actual downloads will be deleted to. Like in firefox if you remove the downloads from the dl window it will remove the actual dl from wherever your default dl folder is.
I don't have the ssd msata option in the laptop I just purchased from Newegg so I decided to buy a samsung 840 250g ssd and do a clean install of win 7.Updated ssd to latest firmware, disabled secure boot in bios, sata was already set to ACHI, installed ssd and started loading win 7. It would get to the point that the tiles are floating around and it says "starting windows" and then locks up. Tried this several times and same thing.
Finally tried changing boot mode from eufi to legacy it works fine. I got win 7 installed. Now if I try to go back to eufi boot mode it just goes to a black screen (on start up) and displays detecting media (or something like that).So I guess my question is:
1. Why did I have to switch to legacy mode to begin with
2. Does leaving it in legacy boot mode affect performance?
One last thing, since installing win 7 I have been unable to install the nvidia drivers downloaded from dell for win 7. It either starts and immediately fails or it installs a little then I get a blue screen and the computer reboots.
I recently purchased this laptop and I have no alternate nvidia drivers, when installing i get the error message no compatible hardware found. I have already tried adding my device to the .inf list with no success, i might be doing it wrong?
Both intel HD 3000 and nvidia GT 625M drivers are listed on my product driver page but i do not know if I'm limited to what comes pre installed.
I recently had to get a new hard drive installed in my Inspiron 1545 laptop. Therefore, I reinstalled Windows Vista 32bit, as well as all the drivers the Dell website told me I needed.
However, since the reinstall, I have been having issues with downloading programmes from the web- although my connection settings all seem OK. I can usually save .exe files to my computer, but when I attempt to install them, it tends to tell me they are corrupted in some way.
I've run into a problem where every file I download will start normally, then slow to a stop (0 kB/s), and never start back up or continue. Depending on the internet's download speed, this makes it impossible to download files larger than 25-50 MB. This problem has persisted on four different networks and in both Google Chrome and Internet Explorer, so I've determined it's neither a network nor a browser issue. It started where it would only affect about 75% of downloaded files, but now it affects every single one. Although, I can still download large amounts of data through other sources (I downloaded a 25 GB game on Steam with no problem).
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 want to install a 64 bit OS (widnows XP pro sp2 x64) on my laptop because I just ordered 4 gigs of ram and want to speed up my system. Thing is I dont know if I can run it , I have the AMD Turion 64 x2 TL-58 (1.9 GHz , 2 x 512 kb L2 cache) but I read I have to have a 64 bit motherboard also.
If kindly help a brother out. I just bought a Studio 1537 for my lady and i was unable to install windows 7 64 bit RC. It's saying
"the version of this file is not compatible with the version of Windows you're running. Check your computer's system information to see whether you need an x86 (bit) or x64 (bit) version of the program, and then contact the software publisher."
I have bought acer laptop. 1. This is Extensa 6702ZNWLMi 2. Intel Pentium M processor 735A 3. DVD-Dual double layer
Now when i press the power button it start and after some processing shows the following: Linpus Linux Basic Edition v9.2 b060419c [root@ localhost /]#
Now i dont understand this command [root@ localhost /]# and after this command cursor is blinking to write some thing.
I also dont know that how to launch that window in which i can change the boot priority. In my pc that i use in home i press del after starting my computer and a window comes where i change my boot priority and then boot from cd windows xp and install it. But in this case i dont know how to install xp. and my next question is that can i play cd in DVD-Dual double layer.
I recently had to replace the hard drive on my Studio 1558 laptop and reinstalled the operating system using the disk that came with it. All went well until I had to reinstall the device drivers to get my device to access the internet via wifi. So far, I can't seem to get the driver for the device that allows my laptop to see any wireless connections and have to plug in a network cable to go on the internet. how I can get the right device drivers other than using the device driver disk?
After booting from the XP SP3 disk, I could format the Vista partition and the laptop re-booted after copying the installation files. After boot-up and the Windows XP screen, came the installation screen. The laptop stut down after about a minute on this screen. I tried again but to the same effect.
I'm unable to boot my Inspiron 15R SE laptop. There are no response from the laptop when I pressed the power button. No LED lights, no disk noise ! The only thing I noticed is the power cable light goes out immediately when plugged into the laptop.
I have tried taking the battery and power cable out , hold the power button for 30 seconds , place battery and power cable back then tried rebooting but laptop still won't boot...
I've recently purchased a Dell Inspiron 7520 SE FHD and following the indications on the drivers download page I upgraded Bios to A9 version. Now I'm having 2 issues, one minor and one that bothers me pretty hard.
1. I can't boot fro USB stick when I try to install WIN 7 again. If I have the bootable usb stick with WIN 7 (created with Microsoft USB DVD Bootable Tool) plugged in the usb port and I press either F12 for boot options or F2 for Setup everything blocks and won't have any other option but to keep the turn on button pressed until the laptop turns off.
I also tried F12/F2 without the USB stick plugged in and I can't find the option to boot from USB neither under F12 menu or Boot menu when pressing F2 for Setup.
2. After doing the BIOS upgrade, the first thing I see, the black page with the Dell Logo seems to be a little broken, meaning the logo is bigger then it used to be and so is the blue line that shows the loading status below it.
over the past week has only charged intermittently. Sometimes I needed to just twist or nudge the power cord in order for the battery to power up. Other times the message stating that I needed a dell adaptor came up.Yesterday the laptop stopped charging and the battery has reduced to zero. It will not recharge and is therefore no use to me as it needs to be constantly plugged in.I have tried a different power supply (same type) and that will not charge the laptop either. Both chargers are the official Dell ones that were supplied with the machine. I suspect it is not the battery either as it took me over an hour to get any power into the machine. Of course it is out of warranty at almost two years old but has been a great machine and I'm loathe to just scrap it.I have another Dell laptop ( a Vostro) which has suffered exactly the same fate and stopped charging after less than 2 years.Three questions:
1) Am I just unlucky that the same fault has developed in two machines, or is it more common problem in Dell laptops?
2) Is there a way to have it repaired by Dell? I realise i would have to pay, but there menus keep sending me back to buy an extended warranty which I am not eligible for.3) If Dell won't repair (or the cost is prohibitive), Is it possible to disassemble the machine and replace the socket that the power supply plugs into, or would it have to be the whole motherboard that is replaced?
I would like to send it in for repairs. The problem I am experiencing is as follows: suddenly shut off, does not turn on, the power supply LED light (on the AC adapter) shuts off the moment I plug it into the computer.
My Inspiron 15R SE which I purchased from Dell Canada in February 2013 recently acted up on me. It was just like any other day, I run the laptop battery down, then plug in the power adapter when its low.
This time however, the laptop just suddenly shutdown (not through Windows, like just up and died). I tried to power it up again and each time, barely 30 seconds after it powers up, it just up and dies.
I had to do work on it so I thought I let it sit for awhile to charge the battery, thinking that I can run it on battery at least. But alas I left it there for even a whole night and the battery did not even charge a drop.
I then tried removing the battery and only running on power adapter only but it won't even start. I have also tried another power adapter but the same issue persists so I can safely rule out the power adapter.
The power port doesn't look damaged either seeing as I have always loyally bought Dell throughout the years, and I really need to get work done (it is my primary computer).
I just bought a brand new computer. Started it up and the mouse pad is working intermittently! Sometimes I'll try dragging over to click an icon and it freezes! Is there a problem with the computer? I'll shut down and it will work fine for an hour, then quit working, or move very slowly. I changed all the settings for the mouse pad and still doesn't work correctly.
