Dell :: QuickSet Media Keys

Feb 26, 2010

Anyone know of a way to make the QuickSet media keys work with iTunes when using another application? Big annoyance to have to navigate back to iTunes when I want to change the song or stop it, though the Win7 Jump List controls help a bit.

Dell :: Media Keys Stopped Working... Is There A Permanent Fix?

Apr 20, 2009

So my media keys decided to stop working again. I know the current solution is to pull out the battery and hold down the power key to drain the power.

However, this is probably the 5th or 6th time the media keys went dead again. What is the cause of the problem

Acer :: 5920G: (overheating + Restart, Media Keys...)

Feb 18, 2010

I have a 5920G with the 160GB HDD and the 8600 GT graphics card.

I upgraded the RAM to 3GB which didn't such a big change to be honest, but it did help with my Ubuntu partition.

Anyway I have a few niggles and some bigger issues with it:

1) whenever I play games such as Day of Defeat/Counter Strike Source, the computer shuts down after about 20 minutes. It just overheats, badly. It feels really, really hot at times when I play. I don't play with heavy graphics, more like the opposite in fact.

It ran Modern Warfare 1 but again, for less than 10 minutes before shutting off.

I have it on a wooden desk, so there's not much air circulating under the laptop. I tried propping it higher up with various things but to no avail.

I don't quite understand what I can do... what's the point in getting a decent graphics card in a high powered PC (my PC before was a P Celeron with 256MB RAM ) if it's not going to be able to run it fast due to overheating..? I'm a little at lost.

2) and that's mostly a niggle... I used Media Monkey as my media player, and PlayMovie as my DVD player.

Whenever I have a DVD in the player, and I use MediaMonkey, the play/pause media key brings up the Windows Media Player to start playing the DVD. It's very frustrating as I have something in the DVD player most of the time and I basically play music out of it whenever it's even on. I'd uninstall WMP but that's basically impossible...

So I'd love to be able to use that media key without anything popping up to full screen and making everything else lag, if it's possible...

The irony there is that while Ubuntu didn't see those media keys at first, a little script later with the help of the Ubuntu forum and they now work BETTER with any media player.

Don't know what else... I tried the latest graphics card driver and wouldn't advise it, I rolled back. Otherwise it's a nice laptop for sure.

Dell :: QuickSet Help

Aug 6, 2009

I currently own the Studio 14 laptop running on Vista Home Basic 32-bit. I have this problem with missing blue volume as well as brightness bar.

In fact, the Wi-Fi catcher that runs on Quick Set is not working....

My problem is that the QuickSet wouldn't run itself during windows startup eventhough it is enabled in Windows Defender and MSConfig. I really got no idea how can this be happening.

Now, I have to manually click on the QuickSet.exe to enable the bars and function. Imagine something automatic now to be done manually. Cumbersome

Dell :: Windows 7 Quickset

Aug 17, 2009

Just a quick note to anybody who has been unable to get Quickset to work with Windows 7 Release Candidate. Dell have now made a version of Quickset available for Windows 7. If you go to the dell website for your country, and go to the download drivers page, you will notice that some models of computer now have Windows 7 drivers available.

It doesn't appear to be all computers at this moment in time, and it isn't all drivers either.

If the option is not there for your machine, you could always try the version of Quickset that is on the Dell Inspiron 1545 page. It works fine for me, I now have volume controls appearing on the display once again.

Here is the link for the Inspiron 1545 Windows 7 64 bit drivers:

Inspiron 1545 Windows 7 64bit drivers

No doubt more models will be appearing with Windows 7 drivers over the coming days / weeks.

Dell XPS 17 :: Quickset Not Working

Jan 29, 2013

I have an XPS17 and recently noticed that the "customized by Dell" portion of the Windows Mobility Center no longer works.  I was told the bottom info is somehow related to the Quickstart application.  You can see in the picture below what it is supposed to look like on the left, and what mine looks like on the right.  None of the "customized by Dell" functions work anymore.

Dell :: Alternative For Quickset On Vista 64 Bit (Vostro)

Oct 14, 2008

Dell does not release 64-bit Quickset for Vostro 1310 and 1510. The 32-bit ones won't work on 64 bit Vista.

That means you won't know how loud you change your volume, or whether it is muted or not. I tried to install Quickset x64 for other laptops but all shows "unsupported system" during the installation.

The workaround is to download the latest Dell ControlPoint System Manager.

This is the link: Dell ControlPoint System Manager

It is compatible with E4200, E4300 and M6400. However it installs successfully on my Vostro 1310 running on Vista Business x64. The volume indicators works, the mute notification works, change of brightness works. The only drawback is ControlPoint does not work with wifi/BT indicators. You flip the switch and there won't be any indicators for it on the screen.

Dell Studio 1737 :: When Press Certain Keys On Keyboard Adjacent Keys Activated As Well As The Key Itself

Jan 25, 2015

I am having a problem with my keyboard on my dell studio 1737. When you press certain keys on the keyboard the adjacent keys are activated as well as the key itself. I've tried various techniques I've read about to correct the problem such as removing power from the laptop for an extended period of time and installing new bios drivers but nothing seems to work. From the information I can gather this is a common problem with this model of Dell laptop. What is the best way to correct this problem. Will replacing the keyboard correct this problem or is there some other problem causing the malfunction?

Dell :: Quickset: Change Volume Dialogue Position

Nov 9, 2008

I couldn't find any info on this and seem to have figured this out. On the Dell I got (Studio 1735 / Windows Vista Home Premium), the volume dialogue (the volume slider that appears when you press the up/down volume media touch buttons) showed up in some strange place in the upper left corner. I wanted it in the lower right corner.

So, follow the following steps:

1. Find the Quickset Icon in the icon tray. Right-click it and "Exit".

2. Fire up regedit (Start > Run > regedit).

3. Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREDell Computer CorporationQuickSet.

4. Backing up is strongly recommended as when performing any operations with the registry. At least back up the part you are changing. To backup, just rightclick the Quickset node and do "Export" to a file.

5. Find VolumeDlgX and VolumeDlgY keys. These hold the x&y position of the volume dialogue. Change them to whatever you want (note that by default the values are in HEX, but you can change them to decimal when setting them). I used the position of BrightnessDlgX/BrightnessDlgY (the Brightness dialogue which did appear where I wanted it) as reference).

6. Reboot the computer.

Note that if you start Quickset without rebooting, it appears to overwrite the registry values with the ones that were there before the change.

Dell :: Accidentally Disabled The Quickset Tray Icon

Dell Inspiron 7520 :: Quickset And Windows 7 Theme

Apr 14, 2013

I've recently purchased a Dell Inspiron 7520 and installed Windows7. All Dell latest drivers were installed without a problem, however

whenever quickset is being executed windows revert to the default theme complaining that quickset is not compatible with current theme. 

The only change i've made in my theme is the task bar color (i've not installed any third party theme). The above is happening each time

I boot the laptop and quickset runs at startup. I get the same error in every power plan, when i have the laptop in AC and when it's on battery.

Dell Latitude D630 :: QuickSet Download File Is Faulty

Feb 2, 2015

I wanted to load QuickSet on a D630.

Unfortunately, I can't find the original versions (e.g. 7.1.19) on and the version that 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?

Dell Inspiron 13z 5323 :: Quickset Key Can't Launch Mobility Center After Windows 8.1 Upgrade

Oct 22, 2013

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.

Dell :: About SSD In E6400 Media Bay

Nov 2, 2009

for the E6400 media bay (I hope that's what it's called, I'm referring to the location where the optical disk is). I'd like to add a SSD before my trip to overseas and I have a few questions about this:

1) what kind of SSD should I get? I'd like to get a 128GB or 256GB SSD. Is it any 128/256GB SSD or do I need to get a specific kind?

2) If I want the SSD to be the primary drive and a 500GB HD to be the data drive, do I need to put the SSD in where the HD is and then put the 500GB HD in the optical disk caddy tray? (I bought the newmodeus caddy tray)

Dell :: Media Direct 2.0 Please?

Nov 9, 2009

I'm trying to get hold of Media Direct for the Dell 6000. I've searched quite a few boards and come across links to where it was supposed to be, but they've been old links.

I've also been able to download 80% of the ISO on a torrent I've found, but its now stopped as the guys who had 100% have gone off line.

I was hoping someone here has still got a copy of the ISO so I can reinstall it onto the laptop I've just replaced the hard drive with.
