Dell :: Inspiron 15 Or Vostro 3500?

Apr 13, 2010

I am looking for a little expert advice on a Dell 15" and wonder what are the main differences between the Inspiron, Studio & Vostro models? I will be using it to display photos and websites and will not use it for gaming. The display and overall looks are probably the most important. . BB has a Inspiron 15 with a i3 processor for $649.

I am also looking at the Lenovo 15" models because I think I have narrowed my choices down to these 2 manufactures.

Oct 31, 2014

Everyone:  Absolutely cannot boot from CD-DVD even if I turn OFF Secure Boot and UEFI and my machine lists my CD-DVD as a boot option.  When I then try to boot from the CD-DVD, I get an error message.  (Optiplex 7010 Mini-Tower with Win 8 Pro 64-bit, an Intel i5 3470 processor, 8 GB RAM and 500 GB hard drive.  It has BIOS version A16 right now.)

I started a thread on this issue in Desktop Hardware Forum - [URL]...

Dell :: Screen Resolution On New Vostro 3400 And 3500?

Mar 10, 2010

There is no configurable screen and the tech specs don't say other than "HD" which most people use for 1366x768.

Has anyone been able to confirm the screen resolution on the new Vostro 2500 series or 3400?

Any idea on how long it takes them to make it a bit more configurable?

Dell Vostro 3500 :: Can Use A Standard USB Keyboard And Mouse With Such A Laptop

Jul 1, 2010

I have never used a laptop before (I prefer to work on a server machine) but am considering one at present.I'm looking at a Vostro 3500 but that could change.

1)  Can I use a standard USB keyboard and mouse with such a laptop?  (No need for special devices!)

2)  Are there any problems with PS-2 to USB adaptors connecting keyboard and mouse to a USB port?  (Yes I have a few keyboards and mice in storage!)

3)  Can I install a standard out of the box version of Windows 7 Ultimate (already licensed) on the Vostro 3500?

4)  I saw reference somewhere to touch screen control in Win 7 coming sometime.  What are the release plans for such capabilities in Dell laptops?

Dell Latitude E7440 :: BitLocker And Secure Boot Running Windows 8.1

Jun 26, 2014

I'm attempting to enable BitLocker on a Latitude E7440 running Windows 8.1. The system is in UEFI mode with Secure Boot enabled, so I'd like to use Secure Boot for integrity validation. I have the appropriate GPO set, but if I try to enable the TPM protector, I get the following warning event in the BitLocker-API management event log:

BitLocker cannot use Secure Boot for integrity because the expected TCG Log entry for variable 'SecureBoot' is missing or invalid.

This is immediately followed by:

BitLocker determined that the TCG log is invalid for use of Secure Boot. The filtered TCG log for PCR[7] is included in this event.

The system therefore ends up configured with a regular platform validation profile instead of using Secure Boot. Is this a problem with the firmware on the Atmel TPM on the system, or is it something else?

Lenovo X Series ThinkPad :: X1 Carbon - How To Re-enable Secure Boot

On my X1 Carbon, I had to move from Win 8.1 pro to 8.1 Ent. I did a fresh install from scratch to only install what I need.During my setup, I had to disable Secure boot, to boot on a USB Key, install 8.1 Enterprise. Now that everything is working, I would like to re-enable the secure boot option.
If I don't it directly in the BIOS, the laptop doesn't book any more.Do I have to import key from my 8.1 Ent to the Bios or something like this?

Lenovo T400 / T500 :: Enabling Secure Boot On T430s?

Jun 17, 2010

My laptop was running Windows 8.1 with SecureBoot enabled just fine. But I just swapped out my boot drive for a bigger SSD and, when I tried to boot from my USB installation media (to do a fresh Windows 8.1 install), nothing would happen (the screen would just flash when I tried to select the USB drive). I realized I had to disable Secure Boot in order to boot from the USB drive and then to enable booting from legacy/non-UEFI devices.
So now I've been able to install Windows 8.1 and it's running without a hitch, but Secure Boot is still in the disabled state. When I enable it, I can't boot from anything. How can I re-enable Secure Boot with my fresh Windows 8.1 install? Or if I have to reinstall, what steps do I need to take this time?

Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga S Series :: Disabling Secure Boot On S1

Nov 16, 2014

I am trying to disable UEFI Secure Boot on my Thinkpad Yoga S1 but it keeps getting re-enabled after a reboot. If I set secure boot to disabled I can boot into the non secure OSes installed on the machine imediately afterwards but if the machine is restarted the Secure Boot seting in the BIOS is re-enabled.  It's important for me to have secure boot disabled as I use OSes without secure boot.

I try to disable Secure Boot in the BIOS on the following screen :

Link to image 1

But if I re-enter the BIOS either after booting into an OS or simply re-entering the BIOS, Secure Boot is back on:

Link to image 2

I have also tried to disable "OS Optimzed Defaults" but it also returns to enabled after a restart.

Link to image 3

Some of the other BIOS settings save correctly so I can't figure out why the secure boot settings don't. The BIOS version I have is the latest (1.18).

It's inconvenient to manually disable secure boot each time I want to use the laptop. The two operating systems (Ubuntu and Android x86) do work reasonably well once booted.

Lenovo U/S Series :: Windows 8.1 On IdeaPad U330 - Secure Boot Not Being Configured

Oct 19, 2013

Yesterday, I updated to win 8.1.  The process appeared to go smoothly, but I now have a number of issues:
1  If I close the lid and reopen, the sytem does not wake up.   It does not wake up if I press the power button.  All I can do is a hard shutdown and reboot.  This occasionally gives an error message on restart, but has not produced any solutions.
2 There is a message about secure boot not being configured
3 The support app has a cross on it and won't work
No doubt there are other problems, but number 1 is the killer....

Apple :: F1-f12 - Way To Disable - Partition With Boot Camp

Mar 3, 2009

We all know that the f1-f12 keys have their own functions. But I used to always use those keys for other things in World of Warcraft (on a PC that is). Now that I'm on a mac, I can't use the f keys even if I keybind them. Is there a way to disable them for just this program?

And on a side question, is it possible to make a partition with boot camp and then have vmware or parallels run off that partition? Or do I have to install windows twice for boot camp and vmware/parallels?

Acer :: 5730 Boot Bios Password And Wanted To Disable It

Aug 9, 2009

Now I am not after any passwords or any thing but I think this is disgusting.

My wife has an on boot bios password and wanted to disable it. She asked me to do it because I work in IT so it shouldnt be a problem.

I logged in with her password. Went security, user password, Press enter, typed in existing one then new password blank and confirmed it with another blank password. Rebooted and now it prompts for a password and we are stuffed.

Is this me being stupid did I do some thing wrong is that not the way to do it ?
Its appauling. We had a customer in work whos laptop was sent away to be sorted because he had the same problem. At the time I thought he was bit silly but now I can see how it could happen

HP Envy 15-U010DX OS/Software :: Disable SecureBoot And Enable Legacy Boot

Dec 9, 2014

I have been trying to disable SecureBoot and enable Legacy boot. This is a fairly straight forward process, press F10 to enter the BIOS, scroll over to the proper area and press F5 over Legacy boot to enable it (Which automatically disables SecureBoot). I have tried this quite a few times and each time have had no success. Everytime I change this setting and restart the computer it just ends up with Legacy Boot disabled and SecureBoot enabled. Yes, I am saving the settings, if I change other settings (Such as Virtualization support) they do save. Why I cannot save these settings after changing them?
I have an HP Envy 15-U010DX. I have also updated the BIOS and am running the latest version.

Dell Vostro 3360 :: Can't Boot From SSD

Feb 9, 2013

I got a new Vostro 3360 with the i7, 8GB of RAM, a 500GB 5400 RPM HDD and a 32GB mSata SSD drive which was used to cache the HDD with the Intel Smart Response Technology. Unfortunately, the computer also came with Windows 8, which is useless for me, so I'm trying to install Ubuntu 12.04 on it.

Now, I managed to overcome many issues so far; I got the Secure Boot turned off, unchained the HDD and the SSD, turned the raid flag off for both, and managed to repartition the SSD so that I could install the Ubuntu system on it. However, I can't see to be able to boot from the ssd no matter what I do. It shows in the BIOS as present, but I don't have it as a boot option. I tried installing the system and keeping the GRUB bootloader on the HDD, that didn't work either.

This is supposed to be my new work computer and trying to get the installation to work is eating up a lot of time...

Dell Vostro 1500 :: Won't Boot Sometimes - Getting Black Screen Without Any Beep

Feb 18, 2013

I have a Dell Vostro 1500 which sometimes ,doesn’t want to boot.

I was using Windows 7,I have changed it to XP ,and it’s happening the same thing.

If I want to restart it  , I’m getting a black screen(without any beep) , and when I'm turning it on ,I must press 20-60 times on power button  and maybe it will work.

In the same time ,I can keep it on,3 4 days ,without any problem.

I discovered that, when I want to turn it on (forced),if I press hard in the middle of the keyboard ,around keys "y /u/i/k/j/h" ,I hear a small sound, and after this its booting.
