Dell :: BSOD New Harddrive Windows Xp Install

Feb 15, 2009

Ive been dealing with windows vista on this labtop for awhile and i am tired of vista. I had previously tried putting in a XP disk and tried to reformat and got a BSOD when entering setup. So i decided to by a new harddrive for the computer because the old harddrive was small anyways. [url] I put the new harddrive in and bios recognized that the harddrive was there. I then put in the xp cd and tried to set up windows again. The same problem happened so I thought it might be the xp CD. I went to windows msdn and i downloaded windows xp professional NO SERVICE PACK(for free) and burnt the image file onto a cd. I then tried installing windows again, and another blue screen of death. My bios is A07 and there is a new bios A08 and i dont know if it will help. Ive been looking around for posts on similar problems and for dell labtops ive seen they have said to get sata drivers. There are none for the dell xps m1210 to my knowledge. If someone could show me where i can find them that would be great. Ive also read people going onto the dell bios and doing something with autodetect. My dell bios has no section about harddrive, its the worst excuse for a bios. I currently can use the old harddrive with vista, if i need to update any drivers but i cant find any drivers that would help in my situation. [url] Do i need to use a newer service pack of XP to work with newer hard drives ive read that service pack 1 supports sata harddrives larger than 137GB? The blue screen comes during windows setup.

Apr 8, 2009

I just need to get this one more thing clear:

I'll buy the VGN-Z540NAB and put in 3 GB of DDR3 ram and a 120 GB Vertex SSD drive.

But - I have been wondering how I am going to do the harddrive part - this is my plan.

1. Make a clean install on the old haddrive as soon as i get the notebook using this guide: Sony Z series 32bit Vista Clean Install Guide (full functions & no windows activation)

2. Make a back-up image of the harddrive using Storagecrafts shadow protect(http://www.storagecraft.com/products...rotectDesktop/)

3. switch to the new SSD harddrive

4. load my back-up image on the clean new SSD harddrive.

5. and i'm ready to go

Dell :: No Internet Connections After BSOD And Fresh Install Of XP

Feb 15, 2010

So she downloaded a recent WinXP update and when it restarted, she got the BSOD with this description only: 0x0000007e (0xc000001d, 0x80537008, 0xbaccf3b8, 0xbaccf0b4). Attempts to reboot just let directly to the BSOD. I couldn't even safeboot... it would just freeze up on me before it even got to the WinXp logo.

I did a several google searches for the error and tried a number of different things to no avail. I decided to just do a clean install of WinXP. The format/install went fine. BUT... the internet connections are missing. I installed all the drivers in the proper order. When I go to Control Panel>Network Connections there's nothing there. No icons or anything. PLUS none of the USB ports work .....

Dell :: XPS M1330 Windows 7 BSOD Tdx.sys

Feb 11, 2009

At random times but every few minutes, I keep getting BSODs that reference tdx.sys.

The problem seems to occur only if my integrated Broadcom wired LAN adapter is connected. I recently ran it for a few hours straight while using wi-fi and no LAN and it did not BSOD at all.

I have read online it has to do with the Broadcom drivers, but even after updating the drivers, the problem still exists. I also tried uninstalling the drivers from Dev. Manager and letting Windows reinstall whatever it wanted. Still no dice.

Dell :: XPS 1640 BSOD On Resume From Sleep, Windows 7

Feb 26, 2010

I have an XPS 1640 with the 3670 card. It came with vista, i put ubuntu on it, then figured it give win 7 ultimate 64bit a go since i got a free copy.

I had all the latest drivers/bios on it, and when I would try to resume from sleep id get a BSOD. Nothing suspicious in the event viewer, no dmp files anywhere. Just would not resume.

I tried fiddling with bios version and driver combos, and still nothing. The BSOD doesnt happen anymore, the machine just freezes on resume.

Dell Inspiron N5050 :: Running Windows 7 - BSOD On Hibernation

Apr 22, 2013

I have ignored the issue as long as I can but I am too often losing my current state when I hibernate my pc.The screen powers down which makes me think that the hibernation is happening as normal. However I still see the HDD power light remaining active for say 10 minutes. 

The computer then throws a blue screen of death and then powers down.When I reboot I get the message Windows did not shutdown successfully. Windows will ask me to upload the crash dump file to Microsoft but I never get any kind of feedback.This process is quite frustrating.

Acer :: BSOD While Installing Windows

Dec 2, 2008

I have an Acer 3100 laptop and I've been trying to install windows on it for the past few days. The problem is after Windows formats the drive and copies the files, i'll get the BSOD after it restarts. I've tried using a different hdd and ram. I've tried installing Windows XP and Vista. I tried loading an image of a fully loaded windows but that didn't work. I ran ram and hdd testes but no problems show up. I'm really out of ideas now. I also updated the BIOS but that didn't help.

Acer :: 3810T Strange Windows 7 BSOD

Jul 2, 2009

Having some very strange Win7 RC install problems on my Timeline 3810T.

First - If the SATA was in AHCI mode in the BIOS, I would get a BSOD every time the partitioning was complete and copying files begun. When this was switched to IDE mode, installation went off without a hitch. This is with the machine's stock 320GB hard drive.

Second - I've received a Corsair P256 SSD drive, based on a new "very compatible" Samsung controller. After installing this SSD, the BSOD occurs no matter which mode I'm in (IDE or AHCI). I cannot seem to find a way around this. I've tried loading all different version of AHCI drivers from Intel for the ICH9M-E, but no go.

I'd really like to unleash this SSD

HP Pavilion G4 Display :: Not Able To Install Switchable Graphics After Fresh Windows 7 Install

Apr 13, 2014

I replaced hard drive with SSD and installed windows 7 ultimate (X64) on my HP Pavilion G4 notebook. However, I am not able to install switchable graphics on my laptop now.
 
I have tried this
1. Installed HPSA and ran update and tuneup. It asked me to update "AMD High-Definition Graphics Driver" but it failed with multiple retries and after some time now it doesnt ask to do this update at all. Now everything is green in HPSA but I am still not able to switch the graphics
2. Tried to download from HP drivers page but it says "AMD Catalyst Mobility cannot be downloaded due to incompatible harware/software on your computer"
3. Tried uninstalling the driver but windows updates the drivers automatically.
4. I also updated BIOS as suggested at [URL] ..... but still no luck......

Lenovo U/S Series :: IdeaPad S510p - Frequent And Unpredictable BSOD - Windows 8.1 64bit

Apr 29, 2014

My Ideapad S510p has accrued over 10 BSODs over the past 2 weeks. It is totally random, not due to putting it in sleep mode, and apparently is caused by a failure in the ntoskrnl.exe and usbehci.sys.
 
I have tried looking for malfunctioning devices, and disabled bluetooth as it was apparently not working.
 
I also installed several new drivers. This solved nothing, and I am at a loss of what to do entirely.

Lenovo T400 / T500 :: T520 / Windows 7 - Suddenly Receiving Random BSOD And Applications Crashing

Apr 10, 2013

I've been running on a T520 4239-CTO for a little over a year now without issue.  I've been getting lots of random bsod and services crashing in the last few days; even Windows 7 cannot validate itself anymore.
 
I ran all the hardware checks in the provided Lenovo utilities and it all seems to pass.  I didn't trust this so I manually checked the smart values on the hard disk and noticed around 2400+ reallocated sectors so I decided to replace the hard disk.
 
It should be noted that there are no viruses/malware on this machine.  After receiving the new hard disk I did a factory restore using the dvd backups I made when I received the machine.  Upon booting the new factory install on the new disk I'm still getting the same random bsod and issues with Windows 7 not being able to validate.
 
I notice that everytime I boot now on the newly restored os that the "Microsoft Software Protection Platform" service has issues and cannot start.  I started doing some updates using the Thinkvantage tools and they're crashing too.
 
This machine is currently on pass 4 of memtest without any errors so far.
 
I've replaced the hard drive and from the looks of things so far the ram seems fine.  Where do I go from here?

Dell :: Harddrive Activity

Mar 12, 2009

Past few months my 9300 with the 100gb 5400RPM drive has been laggin like crazy due to lots of harddrive activity. Sometimes it feels like I'm running a pentium 2. I always thought it's because I didn't have much free space (8-15gb) but I recently cleared it down to like 35GB free and have set a defragmentation every night at 4am. I use diskkeeper for that. It hasn't really gotten that much better...

I think I will do a "boot-time" defragmentation to totally defragment, but what else should I check?

Running 2gb ram with 1gb paging file, windows xp pro, up to date.

Dell :: Is My Harddrive Any Good?

Aug 17, 2009

I have a Dell XPS M1530 with a 320GB HDD. A few months back when I checked how much free space I had left it showed 295GB not 320GB in total.

Currently I have 224GB out of 295GB and this doesn't seem right to me because I have nothing on my HDD except for CCleaner and and a few small programs.

I figured that so much space was being taken up because when I downloaded Firefox which is 30MB, 10GB was taken off of of my HDD, same thing happens with whatever I download. I have no clue whats going on

Dell :: Harddrive Died

Oct 11, 2008

My Hard drive went kaput and right after I had put about 4 hours of paper research info into it.

I spent hours trying to get the information off the drive, but now have an additional issue: The external drive I borrowed from my friend was being used with Apple OS X. SO, when I plug it in to this win XP machine, it doesn't recognize the drive or show any existing files!

Does anyone know a program or a way to help me verify if my attempt to recover data might have been successful? The only other option I can think of is, after getting a new drive into the laptop, installing linux hastily and transferring to a different drive. And no, the friend that I am borrowing from is a few hours away at the moment. I need that research for Monday, and I feel the pressure!

This is the first hard drive that has ever failed on me inside of a year, and its true what they say: It happens only when you suddenly have data that is actually important.

Dell :: Can't Access Harddrive/Flashdrive With Old

Nov 21, 2009

I'm trying to access a flash drive on an Old Dell computer. I cannot access the Windows folders or install paths on the harddrive. I do believe the flash drives are installed, but they will not show up when put in the computer. The computer should be around 7 years old.

I can try to get more information out of the computer, I would just need to know where to find it (as it is not mine). It is a desktop and not a laptop BTW. It has never been formatted.

Dell :: E6400 Harddrive Replaced

Jan 2, 2009

so i replaced the 80gb Seagate Momentus 7200.3 with a WD5000BEVT
(WD Scorpio Blue 500gb). The problem that i have is simple, its not working.

The Bios is detecting the new HD correctly and the new WD harddrive also
passed the DELL diagnostic test.

But when i try to restore a Backup or install a new OS, the menues
freeze where i have to access the harddrive.

I also tried to download the WD diagnostic tool but when i run that it is freezing at the beginning when it says "DR-DOS booting".

Can someone tell me if it is a bios or chipset related probem or do i need
a replacement for the new WD harddisk. Has someone ever tried replacing
the original hd with a 500gig one?

Dell :: Failing Harddrive On XPS1340

Nov 7, 2009

I'm experiencing some strange problems with my XPS1340 and I think it might be related to a failing harddrive.

The computer hangs quite often during startup or if I am installing/running programs. However, it seems to handle file copying with no problems - at least for now.

When it hangs, the harddrive LED stays ON, but the computer doesn't freeze totally and no BSOD. I can still move the mouse, but I can't open any programs or browse through files. After a while I get a message that Windows is not responding and I have the option to terminate the process or wait for it to respond. I can't click on any, though.

The only thing to do is a hard reset, and then normally the computer boots with no problems. If it hangs during startup I have to do the hard reset again.

As mentioned - the problem seems to occur only when the computer is installing a program / opening a program / starting up. I have just copied about 20GB to the harddrive to test, and it did that with no problems at about 32MB/s. Also - I can do "light work" like typing (I'm typing this on the computer)

I have tried to format and do a complete reinstall AND - Windows installs just fine - the problems begin when I start to install all the programs.

So.. Is this harddrive related, or could it be something else??.. I really think it's weird...

I got the computer about six months ago and until now I haven't really had any problems. I'm running windows 7 64 bit and the harddrive is a Western Digital (WDC WD32 00BJKT-75F4T).

Dell :: XPS 1330 Harddrive Nearly Full

Apr 29, 2009

This is my first post here and am new to this site.

Yesterday my XPS 1330 arrived with a 128 GB SSD. I was very impressed with startup, quietness, etc. I moved files from an external harddrive with pics and audio (totaled to 40 GB).

I then went to view the drive and saw that I had 12GB left...not even a day that I own a new laptop and my machine is nearly full. My old HP laptop still has 50GB left.

I removed the pics and that gave me 40GB left.

18.5GB is dedicated to "Dell DataSafe Local Backup..." I have no idea why this is so huge

Dell :: Desktop Harddrive In Laptop

Sep 15, 2007

I know there's 2 ways to do this but I have speed concerns....basically I want to stick a Raptor into my laptop which is 99% of the time stationed. Here are the only two ways that I know.

1) Build an external USB 2.0 by buying an external exclosure etc.

2) Hooking the raptor directly up with a power source..This I remember seeing on Tom's Hardware but I cannot find it and I don't think they explain it that well...

What I am worried about is if the External Raptor would limit its power? and What do I need to hook it directly up to my laptop with a power source(wihtout screwing with laptop voltages).

Dell :: 1558 Harddrive Or Fan Constantly Spinning?

Feb 17, 2010

I don't know what it is, or maybe its just the way the system works...
But basically, but something is constantly on even when I just have the laptop on with a few IE windows, you can especially feel it just to the left of the touchpad. From time to time, I will also hear the the noise coming from it and it till slow down, then start up again.
I mean, its not a big issue, but is something wrong with the laptop?
This happens when the CPU load is as low as just 5%, temperatures around 42-45 degrees Celsius.

Dell :: D620 Doesn't Like New SATA Harddrive

The 620 will say "a read error occurred, press Ctrl alt del to reboot" directly after post. I doesn't not attempt to load an OS.

In the BIOS:I made sure that the harddrive password protection thing is all off
In the device list the 320 GB drive appears, so it's not a mechanical problem

The drive works on a modern AM2 desktop.

Dell :: New M1530- Harddrive Always Makes Noises

Jan 13, 2009

I have a new M1530 and I just have a couple of minor issues.

Firstly, the harddrive always makes noises (like it is thinking) even when the computer is idle. It's not loud and just sounds like normal access sounds, but it makes a little noise every 2 seconds or so. Is this normal and can I make it stop? Like I said, the noise sounds like a normal HD noise, but it just never shuts up.

Finally, has anyone had problems connecting to wireless networks in vista? I have connected my laptop to 2 networks already and it was fine, but now when I try and connect to my main network, it asks for "additional log on information", including a username, password and domain. I don't have this info and have only ever used a WEP key...

Dell :: Clean Install Windows 7? Or Windows Xp?

Apr 13, 2010

Has anyone clean installed Windows 7 on their new Inspiron laptops? I just bought a E1545 and it came with Windows 7. I'd like to clean install and I was wondering if it was as easy as popping in the Windows 7 DVD and waiting for it to install and then just dling the drivers online and installing.

And how about Windows XP? I know most people have gotten used to and accepted Windows 7... but has anyone installed WIndows XP on their laptop that came with Windows 7 originally? I mean a native install, not virtual...

If no one has done this yet, I am willing to create a guide if it is requested and if I succeed in doing so...

Lenovo P/Y/Z Series :: Y580 With Windows 8 - Fresh Install Of Windows 7

Dec 1, 2012

My Y580 should be arriving shortly. I got it on the Black Friday Special and it comes with Windows 8. I bought a SSD to replace the HDD and I am wanting to downgrade it to a fresh install of Windows 7 Ultimate or Pro and I have a couple questions:
 
How to do this for the Y580? I have not been able to locate one.
 
Also I am assuming I would not want to use the Windows 8 device drivers correct? Do I use the Windows 7 device drivers?
 
Would use the drivers from the Lenovo site or each devices specific website? I am going to try to save them on a DVD in advance and want to be prepared.
