For some reason my Dell INSPIRON N5110 is not booting up correctly. When I start it up the screen remains black for some time and starts to beep 4 times. I did do my research and knw that it is a read / write RAM error according to the beep code table for dell laptops. I did attempt to change the RAM sticks but it didnt work.
My fan on the inspiron 1545 will not stop running. The laptop is quite hot. The battery from Dell died and replaced with a third party battery and adapter which have not been working well either. Battery will not charge so it is currently attached to power source at all times with the battery in the laptop.
How to stop setup halting when I power on - it waits for me to press any key to continue, press f2... press f12 - I just want it to load windows directly - can't find anything editable to change it. Phoenix Bios 2.3.0.
I have Dell Inspiron N5010 for quite some time and yesterday LCD's just gone all of a sudden. I get 8 beeps again and again which seems to show LCD failure. I connected it to an external LCD and it works. the problem is that I am on the biz trip right now and this beeping sound really annoys me (until I solve this problem by replacing LCD or buying a new lap top). How to kill this beeping sound temporarily?
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 just got a Dell Inspiron 14 7000 series (Inspiron 7447). Was using an Acer before this. My question is about the fan. Its a brand new laptop and I haven't installed anything yet. The fan is fast for no reason and doesnt stop spinning. Is this normal for a gaming laptop? I am not running anything program at all.
After I updated the BIOS to A09 of the Inspirion 7520 my USB keyboard stop working. All drivers is instaled and the windows recognize the keyboard and the num pad is on its happens with 2 keyboards and change the USB port don't works.
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...
For the past week my laptop (which I've been using for only 3 months), running Windows 7, has been lagging. For Example, when I try to check my email using Live Mail, I click on a new email to read and it takes 20-30 seconds before the message loads. NOW it is not booting up. I try to start the computer and it goes to a black screen & says "Windows failed to start.
A recent hardware or software change might be the cause" so I let it boot in the diagnostic mode (I think that is what it was called, the only other option other than normal mode, but did not say Safe Mode) and it just goes to the blue background but no button to log in, or any way to do anything that I can see. I haven't loaded any new programs, I'm just running Quicken and Photoshop Elements, Mozilla, & Chrome and Norton anti-virus (courtesy of our Comcast internet service). Last night we tried to defrag the hard drive but that just sat at 2% for hours with no results.
Today when I booted up my laptop, it shows the Dell logo and goes to a screen that only shows me a few things. It says "Boot mode is set to:UEFI; Secure boot:ON" Then there are two categories, "UEFI BOOT: Network" and "OTHER OPTIONS: Setup, Diagnostics, Change boot mode settings" I ran the diagnostics in ePSA and it said there's something wrong with the video card. It gives error 2000-0332 - "Video memory -Video memory integrity test discrepancy"... when I searched for this code, it said the solution is "Flash latest BIOS, retry diagnostics."
I have an Inspiron N5010 It is just under 2 years old and on it's second charger- the first was replaced by Dell when it stopped working altogehter after only 8 months of use. However for a few weeks now it has intermittently failed to recognise the charger. Three days ago it stopped recognising the charger altogether. I cannot use my laptop unless it is plugged in.
We have a Dell Laptop N7010 on windows 7 (bought Oct 2010) that started freezing up and is now giving the "Windows failed to Start" message. We have tried the two options:
Launch Startup Repair (recommended) and Start Windows Normally. Have tried to select each but no luck. The Startup Repair takes awhile but nothing happens and we are right back to this screen. Then, in reading other logs with this problem the suggestion was to run a diagnostics check.So, chose F12 and ran the Preboot System Assessment Build 4124 and then the Boot Diagnostic Utility Partition
The following errors appear:
Error Code 0F00:65D Msg: Disk - DST Self-test Read Error & also get Error Code 0F00:133C Msg: Disk - No suitable disk media is present (This one was related to SATA DVD + RW...)
I then tried to select F8 to set the system back to factory settings but do not get anywhere. It seems the only options are F2 or F12.
I've had my Dell Inspiron 1545 for a couple of years and it ran fine until recently I noticed that I couldn't update ANYTHING, Itunes, adobe, java, AVG... ect. so when I looked into what could have cause this problem I noticed a lot of the windows updates had failed, so of course I reran the updates and turned my computer off when it directed me too and no luck they still failed I need this computer for school or at least long enough for me to buy a new one.
I have a new Inspiron 15 3521. I tried to update to Windows 8.1 several times. It downloads to 50% and then says Installing for a few seconds and then Getting PC Ready for a few seconds then it starts downloading again. Steps taken so far
1. I ran Windows Update and the Intel Storage Controller 7 Series Controller needed to be updated. The update failed.
2. I went to Dell's Driver Support site and it detected the same driver needed to be updated. I ran the update and it installed successfully. I restarted the PC. I ran the Dell driver update again just to be sure and it said it needed to be update. I tried it 3 times and every time it said success but it never updated.
3. Downloaded driver from Dell and tried to install from Device Manager. It said the driver was up to date.
I googled this and it appears to be a common problem but no solution was stated. Surely others are having this issue.
I have a Dell Inspiron 1454 which when you press the power button it whirrs slightly (think it's the fan) before doing nothing else except having a blank screen and a white light indicating power to the laptop (solid white). My OS is Win 7 and I've had the laptop a few years now. So far I've tried the following:-
Pressing the D button while powering on to test the display - this works as I get the coloured screens so It can't be a screen fault.
Pressing the FN key whilst powering on to get the POST code - this is seven beeps continuously which seems to common and has to do with the CPU cache?
Tried the obvious removing battery, holing power button for 1 minute to discharge any residual power. Also removed the CMOS battery and put it back in again.
Also tried plugging in an external monitor but nothing showed up. Is it something to do with it being stuck in hibernation?
I have a 17 Inch Inspiron R Se that I purchased in January...it has started booting to a black screen...if I press the power button again to turn it off then back on it boots fine...it is very annoying seeing as it is almost new...I had the same issue a couple of weeks after getting it and did the computer renew thing which fixed it (until now) but I don't want to do that again as I have a ton of stuff on it now that I don't want to mess with and have to reload etc...
I tried the hard reset and it did absolutely nothing...ran the diagnostics and everything passed.
When booting my Dell Inspiron N5050 it goes to dell screen and ithe dell logo and loading line dont move at all for atleast 5 seconds then it goes to a black screen with a blinking white line then after that it pulls something up saying restart and insert proper boot media and it pull something saying something is using the same patterns then it says whole bunch of numbers. when doing a diagnostic it says theres one or more errors and theres a red x on my hardrive.
I bought my first laptop--an inspirin 17R. I would think in this day and age---being able to boot from USB would be a gimme!
I have a bootable Toshiba Canvio external drive that I have images for restoration stored on. I know you can boot from a dvd drive with a bootable DVD (which I did create) But---if the drive itself is bootable---why does the BIOS not have that option?
What does one have to do in this day to boot from USB?
Dell inspiron N5010 laptop. When ever I carry my laptop to some place lets say from home to college it stops booting, when I switch on my laptop it starts but after 10-15 seconds it shuts off, also when I try to keep the system in bios it again shuts off within 10-15 seconds.
Twist in the problem is that if I keep my laptop idle for 20-30 minutes it starts working fine (I never remove battery or ram just left my laptop idle)
Another thing is i face this problem only when laptop is carried by me in my back pack or u can say when laptop is subjected to movement.
I noticed this pattern seriously. For past 15 days I didn't displaced my laptop from my desk and it work like any normal laptop but today when I took it to my friends place and there when I tried to boot it it starts and shuts off within 15 seconds while booting so I did the same left it idle without even removing ram or battery or charger for 10 -15 minutes and then it starts working fine.
Why is this happening is there is a problem i hardware or just some loose connection.
I have dell inspiron n4110 laptop. Every time i boot the system it takes 20 to 30 mins. But after booting my system works fine with out any hang. But booting alone it takes very long time even i formatted my system and tried. So i ran the diagnostics i got the below error
Error Code 200-01 42
Msg: Hard Drive 0 - S/N 5WS2Q5WB, self test unsuccessful. Status = 7
I have a month-old dell inspiron 5323 13z running windows 8 that stopped booting yesterday. I had a problem with booting since I got the laptop, namely the boot always stopped and had to press ctr+salt+del to continue the boot process. Dell support recommended the usual things: updating the bios, the OS, resetting the system to factory settings with no effect. Finally, I have decided I can leave this minor annoyance until know when it stopped booting at all after hybernating the system (there was no problem with hybernate before this incident).
So, it displays the dell logo for a short time when powering up, then the screen goes blank but not completely black. After pressing some keys like space a text 'f12 options' is printed in the lower right corner and en empty horizontal bar may appear. Then typing ctrl+alt+del or some random keys the boot may continue and at this point it may be possible to enter the boot menu by pressing f12. So I can change the boot option to uefi or legacy, but neither works. There is no option to boot from USB or anything else (no DVD drive anyway!). So I cannot even try to boot a linux live CD. However, i remember that these options existed before before in the boot order or priority list which is empty now. I can run the pre-boot diagnostics from the boot menu, but it does not find any problem.
