I have tried searching both on my laptop and online but I cannot find out how to adjust the built-in webcam settings. My webcam/camera was excellent for a while, but suddenly both pics and video quality is really bad. How this happened and I cannot figure out where to adjust the settings.
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.
It considers a laptop HP 17-e039sb.When it boots the sound is perfect everything runs fine..But when in use for a few hours the sound all of a sudden disappears..You can adjust the settings but no sound comes out of the speakers..When you reboot everything is fine again for a period of time..I installed the latest sound drivers from the hp website and still the problem occurs.
I've succeeded in installing Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit on my HP Pavilion 15-n228us.how to adjust any settings on the touch pad / track pad, however. It's overly sensitive right now and interferes with typing.I assume I'm missing a driver that will enable me to control it?
I have a TravelMate 7520 with Crystal Eye Webcam, I had to reinstall my vista. Once this was done my webcam didnt work, it showed camera not found.
I have been playing about with it, which ended up meaning I unstall everything (I think). I have installed loads of drivers and software for the webcam but all failed, the camera just doesnt seem to turn on...
I have taken my screen apart unplugged it, uninstalled software, plugged in and reinstall but nothing..Plus once I have installed the driver, I look in device manager and see nothing relating to my webcam.
what I need to download, how to install and how to check the driver is in place
Recently, I have setup windows 8 pro on my inspiron 7520 SE but I found it sucks so I've decided to get my windows 7 back.Once tapping the F8 button to access the boot menu as usual, Nothing appears so I searched in the internet for a solution but with no use.Now I am getting trouble to get my windows back and I just need to know how to get to the boot menu and why isn't the F8 key working as it used to ?
I upgraded from windows 7 to windows 8 just a few days back. Since the upgrade, I'm not able to access any of my USB pendrives and flashdrives after plugging them in the hub. The oc just does not read them. The light on pen drives glows for 1 second and then goes off.
The UEFI thing screwed my head a bit while trying to install Ubuntu 12.10 in Dell 7520, I made separate partition in Windows 8, installed Ubuntu via liveUSB it went well, but Ubuntu didn't load. So, I hit the Ubuntu install again, it asked me to erase previous Ubuntu, I said yes, now the Ubuntu 12.10 works perfectly.
I used boot-repair to repair the GRUB as suggested in some answers in askubuntu, and when I reboot, there was no option for windows 8. I booted to Ubuntu to check the Ubuntu have used whole 1 TB (total space). That means I deleted windows ? If so, any way to get the setup back? I don't have repair disk, nor DVD. Win8 came pre-installed.
I use Windows for windows mobile app development and Ubuntu for Normal use.
This is my new laptop, just purchased today, but this secure bios thing screwed all the fun of using multiple OS.
Inspiron 15R SE 7520..When I attempt to start my laptop it goes to the Dell logo screen and will not boot Windows 8. I've had the computer less than a month and if I have to restore the system completely it will not cause much of a problem.
When I turn my Dell Inspiron 7720 on, integrated webcam often does not work. Camera app in Windows 8 shows "there's a problem with a camera", other apps also show error messages or just a black screen.
After several resets the camera may start to work properly till the next reset. The camera is always shown in the Device Manager without errors and in the USBView I see that at least USB descriptors are correct. Moreover, after several disable/enable cycles in device manager the camera may start to work.
I've created two HDD partitions and installed Windows 7 Pro and Windows 8 Pro (both from original ISO files downloaded from MSDN). On clear Win 8 the camera shows the same problem, but on Win 7 it works properly.
There is no camera driver for Inspiron 7720 on the Dell web-site, thus I've used standard Microsoft driver on both Win 7 and Win 8.
I'm still not sure is it a hardware problem, because it is reproduced only with Windows 8. The computer was initially sold with Ubuntu, but Windows 8 is in the list of supported OS.
Camera IDs are: VID = 0C45 (Sonix), PID = 648D, REV = 2206.
I got Inspiron 15R 5520 with Windows 8 and after I installed this OS my webcam doesn't work properly anymore.Well, actually it's work but sometimes. But almost all the time Skype telling me that I should close all the programs that may use the webcam, but I haven't any other apps that uses webcam, Is there some additional drivers or application I should install? BTW it worked properly on Windows 7. And it IS working on Ubuntu so I presume that's a software issue.
I have Dell Inspiron 5447 i3 with AMD Radeon R7 M265 with Windows 8.1 and have recently updated all needed windows updates.
I know how to add applications in the switchable settings as high-performace with *.exe extension but when I installed applications from the apps store (i.e. Asphalt 8 - Airborne, etc.) I cannot seem to add them to the switchable graphis settings to get the AMD GPU used. I know that the AMD GPU not getting used because I used a monitoring tool (openhardwaremonitor) that says it was not used. I can add applications like some other games I installed but not from the windows apps store so now I am really confused.
How can I get the AMD graphics to work with some apps in the apps store (specifically in my case, Asphalt)
I just bought a new Dell Inspiron 1525 1.86 ghz laptop 3 days ago. I noticed that around bright lights in my room, its monitor is not displaying crisp and clear pictures. How can I adjust the monitor's picture and contrast? Many thanks.
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?
