I need those drivers and software. I was looking around but I can't find anything (maybe you had luck). So If it is possible for someone who has already dealt with this to post links, it would be appreciated.
B.T.W - If there is another thread like this, send me messege (with a link of course) and delete this thread...
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.
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.
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 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.
I acquired a Dell Latitude E5520 that I redid myself and downloaded the drivers from Dell's website. I would like Dell quickset x64 for windows 7. The one I had for my old laptop does not work. I tried googling some but can't find it.
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.
Anyone experience this issue? I just woke my laptop up from sleep and noticed the quickset buttons are stuck. The STOP (SQUARE) key is brighter lit than all the other keys and none of the touch sensitive buttons work.
I just got my new Studio XPS 16, but accidentally disabled the quickset tray icon. I've checked registry and tried reinstalling quickset, but nothing i do can get it back. Is there any other way to do it without having to reinstall my whole computer? (as i've already installed several other programs, it'll be quite some effort).
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?
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.
When will the price of the m1530 come down? I want it, but it costs a lot.. After christmas maybe? Or am I better off getting something else?. I do live in canada so none of those amazing $400 off Inspiron/vostro coupons work...
I'm getting ready to order a new m1530, but can't decide on Ram options. I know with 32-bit Vista, it only recognizes ~3.2GB of RAM, so would the benefit of 3.2GB Dual Channel be worth the upgrade from 3GB non-DC?
Has anyone noticed any problems with Aero when using non-DC?
i had a XPS M1530 since Jan,2008(When first release). couple of weeks ago when there was an issue with my media buttons dell decided to change the whole system as they were not been able to fix it.
actually the light(Blue surroundings lights when once touched the media buttons) was not as brighter as they were suppose to b. when i first bought the system these lights were really brighter. but a month ago when the buttons were not working properly dell replace the whole Media Hinges Cover. i found the lights really deemed. then they again changes the hinge cover. but still the same. third times they changed the mother board, but nothing fixes the problem, i mean every times it's deemed media buttons. so they changed my whole system.
the new XPS M1530(replacement) i have received a couple of weeks. but u know guys, i was surprised to see that these media buttons r also deemed. and it was assembled in Poland where the old one was in Ireland. also i have found another changes that is, the screen light is much more brighter. something like Blueish. i don't know if it is good or bad. one of my house mate has got his old xps m1530. so i did compare just putting his one right next to my system. they also changed hdd. my previous one was Fujitsu and this one they have put Hitachi. this hdd make little noise than previous one.
i could complain to dell and keep replacing the parts but i didn't, u know guys why, bcz this new system came along with Processor 2.5Ghz where my previous one was 2.2Ghz.
I put it on the table and started to work... At first i heard clicks from HDD. Then i downloaded HDparm and done what there were said:
"Just install HDPARM and run the "unclick.exe".
You can put a shortcut into the windows "autostart" folder to run it directly on boot"
After that clicks form hdd gone...
But today i took it on sofa and when i picked UP it i heard like scrpas clicks FROM HDD. and in vista all started to slow.... then i didn't moving it and when i moved it (picked up) again - again this....
I downloaded HD Tune and done some tests.
CANT post here picture but the graph was like if its standing its all going straight but when i picked first it falls down and vista slows down .. and then i put it back on table but when i pick up it again and starting walking slowly its started to beep clicks and etc. and again the line was fall down 3 times (to the transfer rate minimum) ...
2) This was when i was moving slowly it like walking and i heard clicks ... sounds from it and A BEEP like sound 2 times..
1) thats when i picked up it only.

I now have 8 gb of ram on my xps m1530 using the A11 bios update.
I want to thank Rhodan for the idea and the original poster of the A13 bios for m1330 thread. I downloaded the a11 update and installed it. I then installed my other 4 gb sodimm and bios recognized it and windows recognizes it. this is awesome.
Kudos to Dell for listening to its ideastorm ideas and implementing the ones that really matter to us users.
