Dell Vostro 5470 :: 7 Partitions Displayed In Disk Management

Nov 28, 2013

I had a quick look at Disk Management on my new Vostro 5470, and there are not less than 7 partitions displayed over there.

The laptop has a SSD of 128GB installed. I know that GPT hard drives require several partitions (to be specific, I know only about ESP, MSR and data partitions only) - but 7? My data partition has only 99GB available. That surely isn't a lot.

I know that some sort of Intel recovery is installed, and I know that the Dell diagnostics is installed somewhere too.

Acer :: Disk Management Partitions For Aspire V11 Touch Running OEM Windows 8.1?

Oct 28, 2014

I'm seeing the following:
600 MB Healthy (Recovery Partition)
300 MB Healthy (EFI System Partition)
449 GB Healthy (Boot, Page etc...)
15.5 GB Healthy (Recovery Partition)
Given I'm supposed to be running OEM Windows 8.1 shouldn't 1 of the first 2 partitions say OEM?
If that is so I know what I've done and it will probably require a recovery disk to set things straight (i.e. recover the original Acer version of Windows 8.1). This is a follow-on from a previous post where I foolishly installed an evaluation copy of Windows 10 instead of running it using virtual software (which is what I usually do with these things) - I can't remember for sure but it's likely I installed it by formatting the whole disk and probably wiping the OEM partition.
I do have a system image taken a few days before I installed W10 but suspect the OEM wasn't included...which is what is displayed above after I reloaded it.

Lenovo T400 / T500 :: Selected Disk Is Of The GPT Partitions Style / Can Delete OEM Partitions

Jan 6, 2014

I'm having a problem to install windows 7 pro on my Lenovo t440s ( that came with windows 8 ) using a memory stick.I went to the windows 7 installation menu and formatted the Windows 8 partition, so now I have :

Disk 0 Partition 1: WINRE_DRV 1GB OEM
Disk 0 Partition 2 : System_DRV 260MB System
Disk 0 Partition 3 128MB MSR
Disk 0 Unnallocated Space 225GB ( it was the old windows 8 partition )
Disk 0 Partition 4: Lenovo_Recory 12.1GB OEM 

However, when i try to use the free space to install the windows 7 i get this error :" Windows cannot be installed to this disk. The selected disk is of the GPT partitions style. " 

I tried to bot using Legacy Boot Only and after using UEFI/Legacy Boot and nothing changed, I'm still receiving the same error.I read that I have to select each of the partitions on the drive, and select Delete. Then the drive will show a single area of unallocated space that I should use to install windows.there is any problem in delete all my partitions of Lenovo T440s? Can I delete the OEM partitions?

Dell Vostro 5470 :: GT 740M On Windows 8.1 64-bit

Mar 25, 2014

I've bought a Vostro 5470 couple days ago.After installing Windows 8.1 64-bit and all drivers listed in 5470 driver's page, everything is working fine except the Nvidia GT 740M. I tried many versions of driver including those from Geforce official site but none of them worked. When I tried to open the Nvidia control panel, it said something like "You are not currently using a display attached to an Nvidia GPU"

Only Intel HD Graphic is currently working now.

Dell Vostro 5470 :: Intelligent Display Cannot Be Disabled

Oct 3, 2013

My laptop is Dell's new machine - Vostro 5470. It was shipped with windows 8 OEM OS but I downgraded it to my own win 7 ultimate with full format. I've downloaded and installed all compatible driver for this laptop with 7.

I hate the auto-adjustment of screen backlight according to the brightness of the background, so I googled and knew that I can disable Dell Intelligent Display to avoid it. The problem is, even I unchecked the Dell Intelligent Display in Dell's battery settings, the auto-adjustment kept going on.

I sought through the battery settings of windows and dell but none of them could kill the auto-adjustment. Is there any other way to kill it?  It's really a stupid design that dims backlight when looking at BLACK pages.  It's all black....

Dell Vostro 5470 :: Windows 8.1 - Touchpad Doesn't Recognize Elantech Driver

Aug 23, 2014

I'm using windows 8.1 and my Touchpad doesn't recognize Elantech driver.

I already installed driver from Dell drivers website.

The problem is all my key fn function work but the enable/disable Touchpad doesn't work.

And I don't see any option to customize my Touchpad.

Only left click, right click, moving pointer are working, but scrolling doesn't work.

I think the driver isn't installed or maybe it isn't compatible with windows 8.1.

Sony :: Z11 SSD Disk Management

Apr 26, 2010

I have several questions related to disk management of the SSD memory:

1. My computer has 384GB, and Disk Management shows a total of 357GB. Is the difference (the other 27GB) the area reserved for bad memory management and for GC?

2. I'd like to increase the area available for GC. Should I leave another 8% unallocated for a total available of 15%, or should I leave 15% unallocated in addition to the 27GB?

3. Assuming that I should use the 'Shrink Volume' function to unallocate space from C:, I find that my 349GB C: can be shrunk by a max of only 162GB to a 'minimum' size of 187GB. Why would this be?

4. My intent is to make the C: drive ~80GB, make a D: drive of ~200GB, and leave the rest unallocated for GC. How should I do this?

Dell Vostro 3300 :: Backup And Recovery Disk Won't Work

Apr 7, 2013

I have a Dell Vostro 3300.  Windows 7 OS.  Hard drive went out. Replaced hard drive. Reinstalled Windows 7.  Used backup system disk that I made with Recovery Manager back in December 2012.  It looked like it was working properly, but after using all backup disks, got message image could not be applied.  Started over, reinstalled Windows 7.  Put in #1 backup system disk. When drop down box is displayed asking which backup to use, I choose 12-29-2012 like I did before.  Nothing happens. It just sits there. Next button can not be used (it is greyed out).

Dell Vostro 1000 :: DVD / CD Player Doesn't Seem To Be Able To Burn Disk

Mar 9, 2013

On my Dell Vostro 1000 which is equiped with a TSSTcorp DVD+-RW TS-L632H ATA DVD/CD writer, it appears I can't write to disk anymore. I can still read DVDs and CDs without errors. Just when I attempt to burn disks, the drive fails with unspecified errors. One thing I noticied is that when I recently used Roxio to burn an ISO image to a CD, the operation completed. But when I reinserted the disk nothing was found on it. It appeared to be blank when reading it from the Vostro laptop. So, I inserted the disk into another DVD/CD drive on another computer. The CD appeared blank but when I tried to write to it from the other computer the pre-write check reported that only 13MB of space was available. So something was on the disk but it ws not visible to either computer. Weird. I tried cleaning the optics but the write operation still failed. Should I consider the drive dead?

Dell :: No Temperature Displayed

Feb 22, 2009

I'm in a bit of a jiffie, my 1330 had some problems with overheating so I formatted but it turned out it was a piece of dirt stuck in the fan, anyways problem solved.

I thought.

Now, I get the slowdowns again, albeit not that severe. Now, when I open hwmonitor it only shows my CPU, HDD and ACHP. The GPUs temp won't show up.

I installed ntune, nada, same thing. What could be the problem, is the temperature measuring thingy broken I'm kind of worried that my 8400m gs is dying on me since it was a pos to begin with but I really dont feel like sending in my laptop.

Dell Inspiron N7110 :: FN Functions Don't Get Displayed

Feb 5, 2013

When i bought N7110 when i pressed the fn + sound up/down button(f11/f12) a little box would come up showing me what my current sound level is and dissapear after 3 secs or so. But doesn't happen anymore. The buttons still change the sound but the box doesn't show up. This happens with all of the fn functions like f2(wireless settings), mute button, f4 f5 (brightness), f3(touchpad on off). They all work but they dont show up. So if i want to close bluetooth i need to do it blindly by pressing f2 + fn a few times to finally get it.

Dell Inspiron 1521 :: When Turn On Power Nothing Is Displayed On Screen

Feb 14, 2013

I have a inspiron 1521 that i have been having problems with. It's an older laptop.

When i turn on the power, nothing is displayed on the screen. When i hold fn+power I get 2 flashing lights and one solid. The num lock and cap lock flash. I don't really know what this means. I have also done a BIST and the laptop seems to pass this just fine. (Different colors flash on the screen). I have tried removing ram 1 at a time but it always blinks the same lights. Could this be a problem with the motherboard?
