I ordered a laptop from Dell on October 1st over the phone. Immediately after I placed the order, I looked it up on dell's website to make sure it had gone through.
The status said "In Production." So then I called the 800 number that gives you an automated message about your order status (yes, I'm anxious), and the recording said "Your order was received today and is currently being processed." So I thought that was weird that the website and phone service were telling me two different things.
So the next day I checked the website and it still said "In Production" and I called the number and it said my order was still "being processed." Also, on the website under Billing Information, it said "Bill to: N/A" and I was concerned that maybe my billing information was wrong.
I just bought an Insprion 7520, and upgraded the windows os to ultimate. However after reading few reviews of this os, I wanted to switch back to Home Premium so that it would be like I bought it. However after installing Home Premium, some of the drivers that I downloaded from the Dell Drivers and Downloads website were unable to install. These problems have also lowered the laptops score in the Windows Performance Index. The GRAPHICS score went from 6.6 to 5.6 and RAM socre 7.9 to 7.7.
-Intel Rapid Start Technology : "The system does not meet the requirements" (It did when I bought it. What has changed I cannot understand.)
-Seagate Firmware v 0005DEM1, A05 : Got a FAILED message in the dos screen.
-Dell-Hardware version GS002D, A02 : Got a message saying "Not compatible with x64 systems".
I have the service tag and the express service code if needed.
I recently bought a dell inspiron e1705 on ebay and I put a hard drive in it and installed the operating system and now I need software and I tried using my dell downloads and it says in internet explorer (an add-on for this website failed to run) and it won’t work.
I can't get in contact via web/email to Dell as my service tag doesn't get recognised on the wesbite, and the auto detect doesn't work
I have a Studio 1555 laptop and want to add bluetooth to it
I have found this:
Model numbers 0P560G and 0M960G
Which one I need and whereabouts I need to check inside the laptop to see if I have the slot available? I am capable of doing this sort of stuff as I have built my own PC, just don't normally do anything to laptops (other than install an illuminated keyboard in this)
Will it work if I just add the module and install the driver?
I have a Dell Inspiron 1520 laptop. I purchased an OEM system builder Pack Microsoft Win Home Prem 7-64 bit English disk that won't install on my computer.
I am assuming my laptop is 32 bit, not 64 bit. Is there a way around this? I now have the disk for sale on Ebay but would like to be able to figure out how to use it either on my laptop or on my HP desktop.........
I have been searching all over various forums and tech sites for an answer. Currently I have 2 GB of ram in my 1520 that's running Home Premium. I've done a clean install after adding the 1 GB Turbo Cache module. It was only about $30.00 and figured worth the risk to try for performance gains. I haven't felt much there.
Does anyone have any positive feedback on performance when upgrading from 2 GB to 4 GB of RAM? I am running 32 BIT and don't care that the full 4 GB are not recognized. I don't want to waste money unless it will make some difference.
Aside from the clean install, I've been using X-Setup Pro, Tweak UAC and TweakIV for optimizing the settings for a little speed. I've also tweaked the services according to Black Viper's web site. The software tweaking has helped immensely.
I appreciate anyone's feedback on upgrading to 4 GB of ram. Sorry if this has been an old discussion getting beat up once again. However, prices are right around $75.00 for 4 GB of G Skill from Newegg.
Dell laptop Inspiron 1300 tag DM1492J. When trying to boot from hard drive it only loads to Windows XP long in screen then goes to a blank blue screen. It will not load in safe mode nor can I repair/reinstall XP from DVD/CD drive. I have entered BIOS and placed DVD/CD drive first disabling all other options but still cannot get it to load XP.
I'm almost down to my choice on laptop the Toshiba at bestbuy seems to be winning but today I seen an offer for the xps 16 that comes with a 2 year basic warranty which is in home repair after phone Diagnostics,Has anybody used this service?Do they come out right away? ....
Dell never gave my girlfriend a disc to re-install Vista.
Actually... I'm playing the role of Tech Support Guy (even speaking to her with a difficult-to-understand Indian accent!!).
She had a crash, so I used VistaPE to get her data off of the computer. Now, I wanna restore Vista to the original factory settings. Sounds easy enough... use f8, right?
Wrong... it won't work in my case. The recovery partition is still there... I just can't access it. The operating system won't boot up at all. I used a non-Dell Vista Home Premium disc to access the Vista System Recovery option, but that doesn't help. I can't get at Dell's recovery partition.
I figure if I had a re-installation disc that's actually from Dell, I could access Vista's System Recovery feature that includes the Dell option to restore the computer to the original factory settings. Problem is, I can't get ahold of one.
Does anybody know where I can find one without going directly to the Dell website? I think Dell has the worst customer service on the planet and I would pay someone to hit me in the head with a sledgehammer before I'd spend one dollar on a Dell product. I've been scouring the internet for two days and can't seem to find a stray copy of what I need.
The computer came factory-installed with the 32-bit (x86) Windows Vista Home Premium.
Yeah... you read that right: a DELL with VISTA!! Could it get any worse?!
This whole thing is driving me bat-sh*t crazy.
I hate Dell... I thank you all in advance for any help that you can give.
Maybe someone would be so kind as to post an .iso image of their own disc?!
I am planning to buy Dell XPX 1530 or HP DV4 1131tx for purely to run virtual machines. is there any possibility to make it dual boot with Windows server 2003 standard edition or Win XP 64 bit? If possible then what are features i won't be able use for above both notebooks.
I installed some windows updates to my computer. The next time I turned on my computer it didn't act normal at all. It went to a start-up repair screen which scanned for a long time only to tell me "start-up repair cannot fix this computer" so I shut down and left my computer. I called Dell's support line and talked with technical assistance, the guy had me run some tests and in the end told me that there was nothing wrong with the hard drive and that it was my systems software that was the problem. didn't wanna restore at that point because wanted to save my pictures.
I ended up taking the hard drive out, transferring pictures onto my brothers computer and then I did a full system restore ( by tapping f8, choosing repair my PC, then choosing "Dell data safe restore and emergency backup" in the system recovery options screen. ) This actually worked and I restored my computer, however after installing updates again (quite a few too, when I shut down my computer it said installing update 1 of 72?! )
My computer went back to the start up repair screen and did the same thing as before. restored my computer one more time, and now again after updates were installed my computer will not work correctly. I do have the windows product key under the battery but would like to know how I can fix this problem. Will have to reinstall my windows software?
It seems like every time I delete a file, I get a whit bar on my desk top that says Delete and the only way on getting ride of it is to restart my laptop, this white bar is on my display all the time on mater what I am doing.
This last time, I deleted the contents or my of my recycle Bin
