Dell Inspiron 17R update from 60Hz to 120Hz for 3D on Windows8

Q: Dell Inspiron 17R update from 60Hz to 120Hz for 3D on Windows8

I bought this laptop specifically to use for 3D development and made sure to get the nVidia GT650M to assist in this. I just got my nVidia Vision 2 kit and successfully upgraded the nVidia drivers from their site. However when I go into the monitor settings I am only given an option for 60Hz; there is no option to switch to 120Hz. I am unable to locate a driver update to assist in this. I used Dell's update for the GT650M but it's the same as what I installed from nVidia.
Where can I get a driver to update to 120Hz?

A: Dell Inspiron 17R update from 60Hz to 120Hz for 3D on Windows8

I have a 17R myself the SE 7720 version, you are aware that there are a few versions of this units being sold by Dell, where some units are specifically designed for 3D use while others like mine, even though I have a NVidia GT650M like you, will not support 3D, There are version for the 17R SE 7720 that do, I just didn't opt to purchase the unit with 3D support.
I'm pretty sure that the different unit versions in question use different LCD panels, and have a 3D infrared transmitter near the top by the Web Cam.
You might want to check to insure that the exact model version you have was designed for 3D.
Cheers

I'm buying an lcd tv within the next few days.

What kind of difference in viewing pleasure will I notice between the 60 and 120hz lcd tvs.

I already have hd setup through my provider. Just need a little help with this. Any help is appreciated.
 

A:60hz vs 120hz?

There are some pretty neat things about 120hz displays. First, you don't have to worry about 3:2 pulldown since all you have to do is display each unique frame 5 times (24*5=120). This gives your video a certain smoothness (you probably won't see it from your cable box) that is hard to explain in words - you just have to see it. You'll need a good source though, bluray or hd-dvd.

Some people complain about the look of such sources on a 120hz display because it makes everything look like it was filmed with a camcorder. It's very noticable to me, but a few people I've had look can't tell the difference at all. I suggest you go to a store and see how you feel about it first hand - and make sure they hook up a decent source when you do this testing.

Hi Everyone,
I recently purchased the Dell Inspiron 15 7000(7559) http://www.dell.com/ca/p/inspiron-15-7559-laptop/pd?oc=ni157559_ft_h5715e&model_id=inspiron-15-7559-laptop and would like to connect it to my 4K TV at 60HZ refresh rate. I already have it successfully connected to my 4K TV(which supports 60HZ refresh rate) but it is only displaying at 30HZ fresh rate via HDMI slot provided on the laptop. I'm using a HDMI 2.0 cable which supports 60HZ refresh rate however the HDMI slot which is built into the laptop is HMDI 1.4A slot supporting up to 30HZ only (I concluded this from general research on the internet).
There are no display port slots built into the laptop but there is USB 3.0. So basically, is there anyway to get the output to be 60HZ with the pre-existing slots on the laptop like using USB 3.0, display port or the Dell docking station. I am not opposed to using an display adapter either like the Dell Docking Station – USB 3.0 (D3100) which has a display port slot built into it but it only supports 30HZ not the desired 60HZ.  
We also can see from the official intel link below that the intel process in the laptop does support 4K resolution at 60 HZ via display port so its just a matter of achieving it. http://ark.intel.com/products/88959/Intel-Core-i5-6300HQ-Processor-6M-Cache-up-to-3_20-GHz 

experience to get the 60HZ refresh rate on a 4K TV with the Dell Inspiron 15 7000 or a similar Dell model like the Alienware laptops.

Hello,
I am an owner of a Dell XPS17 L702x (i7-2630QM & GT 555M) laptop, with internal monitor resolution set at 1920x1080.
I am planning to purchase a Dell U2713H to use as an external monitor.
I would like to ask if the XPS17 L702x support the monitor at the highest resolution (2560x1440) and refresh rate (60Hz) without any problems, through a miniDP to DP v1.2 (displayport) cable.
Thank you

Hey guys,
I just bought a Dell ST2410 monitor and am very pleased with it.
However, I noticed that when the refresh rate is set to 60Hz, the text and graphics on screen seem to be a bit blurry and not quite as sharp as they should be.
When I turn the refresh rate down to 50Hz, the graphics and text are crystal clear, however I have lost some of the refresh rate to accommodate that.
Why is the picture not clear when set to 60Hz? (1920x1080 resolution)

Thanks!

PS: I have the latest Windows 7 Drivers installed and am running an ATI Radeon 4850.

So after installing Windows 10 I decided to update my drivers and one of them was the "BIOS Update" after a while the update stopped at "sending the update image to FW for verification" and it's stuck on 3%. I'm not a computer wizard so your help is appreciated. Also if you're wondering , I'm using the Dell Inspiron 3847.

Bios updates require special installation and must be done alone. It cannot be done with other drivers. Bios updates should be done before updating to win 10 not after. Use caution updating bios since it can brick your computer. 
You should not be updating the drivers yourself. Go to Dell Drivers and downloads and let the scanner tell you what windows 10 drivers you need--

I was trying to help a friend that had the Total Security Malware yesterday. After running Malwarebytes and getting rid of it, I decided to do some cleaning and updates on his laptop.

Everything was going smoothly until it was time to restart after the SP2 update. At first (before shutdown) it began to install some components, it restarted and began install some other updates, later the SP2 update began but after about 30 minutes, the counter was still at 0%.

Of course, I got a little miffed and worried at the same time so, my first reaction was to shut down and restart to see if it would pick the update up again... it failed 3 more times at the same spot (0%) even when I tried to go to Safe Mode.

Finally I was able to get into safe mode and I tried to use a Restore Point to no avail. Much to my dismay it said that I had no restore points to use (I thought windows created restore points before doing updates???). One thing I noticed though, while on the desktop, it said I was using SP2, which btw, it striked me as odd since it never finalized.

So I tried shutting down one more time and restarting normally, this time, I was able to get to the LOGIN screen so I thought I was now safe but, so far , almost 45 minutes later the screen is at the WELCOME and the little circle is hovering or circling around but it doesn't get to the desktop.

Could it be becausr of this?

No -- 5G is more than enough free space for a BIOS flash.  Is the system failing to recognize the AC adapter (F2 at powerup to check)?
If it is, the BIOS won't flash - this is a hardware problem a BIOS update won't fix -- either the adapter, the DC jack or the mainboard is bad.

We performed the free update from Windows 8.1 to Windows 10 on a Dell Inspiron laptop. The update completed and we went through he customization step. We got to the point where we had the desktop and used a browser to access a web page or two without issue.
 
Then it said it had updates to install but we are unsure if it started to install those updates or not.  After it said it had updates, it crashed while using the web browser and got a blue screen error that said: thread_stuck_in_device_driver and then rebooted.
 
It cycled through the blue error screen and reboot three times and then came stopped on a screen where you could select several options such as restore to restore point, advanced options, reset to factory setting, etc. The option to correct problems that are keeping windows from booting did not improve the situation.

After Waiting for almost 6 hours, Update was done and after Windows setup, Display was black, Cursor was blinking.....I checked in Microsoft website and i found that not only me and many Dell customers are facing the same issue. i was luckily able to boot to safe mode and i uninstalled the both of my video drivers and i am back to my windows 8.1.

Hi Dell fans,  just hoping for a bit of direction with this issue:
I have an inspiron 7535 laptop that has started powering off after about 30 minutes of use.  no warning, no graceful shutdown, just straight to power-off.  I've cleaned and serviced it, the normal dell heatsink paste was dry as a nuns hip flask, so that's been renewed and and it's cooling just fine, but i dont think that is the problem.  Mainly because you can turn it straight back on and continue working for another period of time without any need for a cool-down.

My gut instinct is saying BIOS issues.  It's currently at versions A05 31/Oct/2013 and the latest from the support is A13 Release date 15 Jun 2015 (Last Updated 02 Aug 2015) however i cannot get this to install.
If I install within windows (10 x64)  it runs the extractor and flashed up a command window too fast to read the error. and I cannot find any logs it might create.  the command line options dont do anything.  every version does the same thing back to A06.  I seem to see something about intel in the message but cannot really read it in full.
i've also tried booting off a freedos disk and trying all versions too.  this extracts okay and gives error 8743: unknown or unsupported platform, cannot locate hardware platform identification this program cannot be run on the current plaform BIOS version too old please use the latest BIOS to flash.

Hello,
So as it says in the title i have a 4 years old Inspiron 7720, and for the larger portion of that period of time it worked like a charm.
However lately it started doing some quirky things.
About two weeks ago my GPU (GeForce GT 650M) just disappeared from my Device Manager. I tried updating my GPU drivers, updating Windows (10) but it didn't seem to change anything. So i did some digging and found this: http://en.community.dell.com/support-forums/laptop/f/3518/t/19498450
Apparently I'm not the only one who encounterd this problem and there is a solution.HOWEVER, whenever I try to flash my BIOS an error pops up which reads: "ERROR 105 - Command line error! Status = 105."
I searched and found more users that experienced this problem, but the only solution I managed to find was reinstalling the OS, which is quite a drastic measure.
Is there any other way to fix this error?Thank you

It appears your BIOS may need to be updated.  What is the current version you're using? You should update them in order without skipping to the highest first.  Here's some information that may be helpful.

My problem is ... no, not quite so, my PROBLEM is Windows 10 Anniversary Update gets downloaded, installed and failed again and again. When it goes through Windows Update Center everything goes well but finally after a reboot I get a notification that the system couldn't install the update.

With this utility the whole process goes well but finally I get popup window that says "Error occurred while installing update".

I recently experienced a permanent battery failure on my Dell Inspiron 5548 laptop, and it can now only work while plugged in. The advice I found after perusing online would be to update BIOS. I've gone to Dell Support, had the site detect my Service TAG, and downloaded the manual BIOS update file(s). However, when I try to click on the new program, it brings me to this thing called "Insyde", which A.) asks for an ID and version and B.) won't work at all anyways since it says my battery needs to be at at least 10% for BIOS to be flashed. Now, I can't charge my computer at all since the battery is fried, since I'm basically running on electricity.
Not only am I unsure if a BIOS update will even fix my battery failure issue, but I can't even test it.

Resolution: Dell Inspiron 5459/5559/5759 BIOS Update - Will not boot after update
"No boot drive found", "PXE... Media test failure"
If you updated from 1.0.x to 1.1.5 (or other) and find yourself scratching your head in a panic that your system won't boot up, reboot and press and hold the F2 key when you see the Dell logo (shortly after restart). When the bios settings page opens, click restore settings to default, save, and then exit. Your system should boot to windows now :-)
If you don't care about default Keyboard LED brightness or Fn Lock key default status, disregard the following:
After your system restarts into windows, restart and repeat to enter bios. There are some minor settings that change -- They are minor and don't affect performance.  Under System Configuration, Keyboard brightness changes from dim to bright. Under Post Boot, Fn lock key changes to unlocked.
Have a nice day. Hopefully if you're reading this you already figured that out on your own.

A:Dell Inspiron 5459/5559/5759 BIOS Update Error - WILL NOT REBOOT

Hello,
I am facing the exact issue for my 5559 laptop after updating bios from Dell update site. 
It had 1.1.5 if i remember correctly, and update was for 1.1.6 using Inspiron_5459_1.1.6.exe 
Only problem, reset to default settings does not solve it for me. Its still the same PXE E61 Media test failure and NO Bot device found error. 
Is there a way to boot from usb and flash it to original version ?

I have the Dell Inspiron 7559 (non-touch) and was able to install the Windows 10 Anniversary Update today after a long session of sitting though Windows Updates. Everything seemed to work fine, except that I had to uninstall my antivirus (Symantec Endpoint Protection). No biggie, I'll just reinstall it after the update. I think it also said that the Intel WiDi drivers had to be uninstalled as well, which it did automatically, but that was all that happened during that process.
So I attempt to do so, and I was able to install it via the .msi file (the .exe file wouldn't work for some reason), and the computer begins to reboot. Constantly. The laptop would freeze somewhere from when the login screen appears to a couple minutes after that. It would hang for a couple minutes, then reboot. It rebooted enough times for it to go to the Windows 10 recovery options. I just told it to restart so that I could tell it to boot into safe mode on the next bootup (shift-click restart when I got inside Windows). It works, and I then tell it to boot into safe mode.
Now my laptop won't boot at all. It won't go past the Dell logo. I can enter the BIOS and the boot options menu, as well as load the ePSA diagnostics tool and have the tests pass (no errors). But it won't get past the Dell logo after this. It doesn't restart, flash lights or anything like that. Just hangs on the Dell logo.
How can I resolve this issue?

Hello everyone,

Both the laptops Dell Inspiron 15R and Dell Inspiron 7548 came with 6 GB of RAM. I'd like to upgrade it to at least 12 GB by replacing the 2 GB dimms in both laptops with 8 GB dimms.

Was wondering whether it is safe and okay to combine different memory modules from different manufacturers.

I'm also leaving the US next week and so would prefer getting RAM that's more reliable and wouldn't mess up the laptops.

Could you guys please recommend which ones you'd get? I've bought Samsung and Crucial in the past and didn't have any issues.

Here's the existing RAM information from CPU–Z:

Inspiron 15R:

Inspiron 7548:

Based on the above information, could you please recommend the sticks that you would get, preferably from Amazon?

Dell's upgrade page for Inspiron 15R recommends this one:

Dell 8 GB Certified Replacement Memory Module for Select Dell Systems - 1600MHz LV SODIMM : Memory | Dell which is 1600 MHz.

So can I get this one for that laptop: Kingston Technology 8GB 1600MHz DDR3L (PC3-12800) 1.35V Non-ECC CL11 SODIMM Intel Laptop Memory KVR16LS11/8 at Amazon.com

This would match the manufacturer of the existing stick (Kingston).

Dell's upgrade page recommended the same stick for Dell Inspiron 7548 as well.

Since I wasn't able to locate Hyundai's 8GB stick, is it okay if I get Kingston or Crucial's stick:

Kingston Technology 8GB 1600MHz DDR3L (PC3-12800) 1.35V Non-ECC CL11 SODIMM Intel Laptop Memory KVR16LS11/8 at Amazon.com

Over the last 2 days I have been having a problem as indicated in the title of this post. The fault has rectified itself 3 times, but again today, it is back to "battery plugged in, not charging." As I am running the laptop (Windows Vista Home Premium; 32 bit) on the adapter without problems, I assume that the adapter itself may not be faulty.
I also have a Dell Inspiron 630M laptop running Windows 7.  Can I safely use that adapter with the Vista laptop, without causing damage to the Vista ?  If it is safe to do so, and the battery on the Vista starts charging, then it would indicate that the Vista adapter/charger has some kind of fault.
Hoping someone can give me some guidance. Thanks.

A:Dell Inspiron 1545 laptop. Battery plugged in not charging. Can I use adapter from a Dell Inspiron 630M laptop ?

If the adapter has the same plug and the same or higher power rating, you can swap them.
Check to see whether the 1545 recognizes the AC adapter or whether it shows unknown (F2 at powerup).  If it shows unknown with two different adapters, you have a bad power jack or a bad mainboard.

I just last Sunday bought a HP laptop and it runs windows8 just fine. I installed a few apps (avast! foxit pdf reader, malwarebytes, superantispyware, open office 4, mozilla, opera) and yesterday decided to install the 8.1 upgrade. I followed instructions, which were basically to select 'store' click on upgrade to 8.1, and watch the download & install.
The download and install went fine, the reboot went OK, but I immediately received a message that the upgrade failed sand Windows8 was being restored. the error code was 0xC1900101-0x30018. I disabled the avast firewall, tried again, same error message. 
Since then, I made sure all available Microsoft updates were applied. 
I'm ready to try installing the 8.1 upgrade, again. 
 
Has anyone else had any experience with an error like this, and, BTW, the laptop was bought in Staples, then returned and 'wiped back to factory ship condition' and then I bought it. I can still return it, but I like the 17" screen size, and , of course, I can't predict how a brand new never been opened PC will act on the upgrade. 
 
Thanks for any and all hints. !!

A:cant install intel graphic drivers after windows8.1 update

That's what we warn the masses about: Never install drivers from Windows Update. When you notice a driver update there, hide it then get it from the manufacturer's site instead.

As a start, detach any 2nd screen or tv from the system.

You likely borked things up with the approach you mention.

The most chances of success from here on out are as follows:

1) Uninstall all Intel Graphics software normally (if any still exists).

2) Navigate to C:\Windows\inf

Hunt through each and every OEM .inf file to find all Intel graphics and Intel audio (for the HDMI) files. Delete them all.

3) Navigate to C:\Windows\System32\DriverStore\FileRepository and Take Ownership of all folders that are for Intel Graphics and Intel Audio (HDMI) - then delete them. Be careful not to delete any operating system inherent stuff.

Reboot then install latest driver from Intel.com.

(If you do it all well) Enjoy.

Whilst watching live internet broadcasts (TV, Youtube etc.) on Chrome, Edge or Firefox, as soon as I connect the screen to the laptop by HDMI cable, the sound on my laptop speakers disappears. Upon disconnection of the HDMI screen cable, the sound re-appears.  
However, the sound doesn't disappear when using other sound applications such as Skype.

I have a Dell Inspiron 1520 laptop with Windows Vista OS. I have a Dell 926 printer interfaced to it via USB. Printer driver is installed and the printer does communicate at times with the computer and does a good job printing. However, intermittently when trying to print a document I'll get a message on the computer that says that communication has been lost and print job failed.

I've checked all connections to make sure they are solid and no debris that might cause this.
That has not corrected the problem.
The other thing that happens is that the document I want to print will stay in the print queue/spooler and if I shut the computer and printer down and restart both it will print the job. And it may continue to print jobs but it's just a matter of time.

Needless to say this is frustrating. I can print several jobs in a row with no problem and then I'll get this "communication has been lost between printer and computer". And I have to go thru the procedure above to get the last job printed.

My wife doesn't understand how this works and will try to print the same job several times with the commo problem and then complains when it won't print.....and then they all print when the above procedure is followed.

Any ideas what is going on??? Any fixes??

Hi,

My laptop (Dell Inspiron 1564 - Windows 7 Home Premium) slowed down a few days ago and I decided to restore the system to Dell Factory Image. The process started but stopped more than halfway and gave the following message, "Failed to apply Image". I restarted the system but it would now not boot up, not even in safe mode! Perhaps, during the restore process few essential Windows files have been erased.

I want to restore the Dell Factory Image and cannot re-install Windows since I have lost the product key of my original Windows 7 installation DVD provided by Dell at the time of laptop purchase. Your help / advice is solicited and would be much appreciated.

Thanks.

P.S. System's Recovery Partition is intact and has factory.wim and other related directories / files intact.

A:Problems with Dell Factory Image Restore - Dell Inspiron 1564

The product key sticker on a Dell laptop is usually in the battery compartment.

Have you tried to run the Dell restore again? It won't boot because the restore started but failed so the "C" drive is corrupted.

If that does not work, suggest posting on the Dell forum where you can get help from those more familiar with Dell's.

Hello,
I have recently upgraded to windows 10 and everything seems file except one problem I am facing which is the wifi card connectivity issues. My connection to router drops very frequently, curently the generic driver which windows think is appropriate is installed. I wanted to undate that with Dell's driver which I can't find on driver download section. 64 bit WiFi driver is NOT there. 32 Bit driver is but that won't install on my machine.
Can someone from Dell help? either to give me the link for correct driver download or confirm driver is not available in which case I would need to downgrade to windwos 8 as the system is unusable in its current state.

A:Dell Inspiron 15R 7520 SE - Windows 10 64 Bit WiFi Driver not available on Dell Site

Hello,
On the Drivers & Download pages for the Inspiron 15R 7520 there are only 64-bit options for Windows, whether 8.0,8.1, or 10.   So those drivers are the ones for the 64-bit version of Windows 10, as long as you filter the operating system option to Windows 10 64-bit. 
The file name may state "Win32" but if you click on the "View Details" link, and then check "Supported Operating Systems" near the bottom of the page you'll find that the driver supports both 32-bit and 64-bit versions.
You don't mention which wireless card you have in that system so I can't link directly to the specific driver.  Which card do you have and what error are you getting when trying to install the drvier?
I would also recommend updating the firmware on your router.  Many routers need an update to be able to handle Windows 10 specific drivers and cards reliably.   What router brand and model are you connecting to?  And do you have problems with all routers or just this one.
Lastly, here is a link to the Dell Networking & Wireless Support Center.  You will find a few support articles in there that may be of help to you.
Let me know which card you have and when the last time you updated your router and, if you can't get the connection to work, I'll see what else I can suggest to help you.

2)Removed both sticks of 1gig ram and placed them in different slots.
3)Swapped out one stick of ram at a time to determine if one is defective.
4)Swapped out all ram with known working ram.

After attempting these steps I still receive the same results everytime. I was thinking about removing and re-seating the processor, but I figure someone with more knowledge than me would have another suggestion for me to try.

Although my laptop was still under warranty when I reported the problem to Dell, they proceeded to sending me an onsite technician with a repair microphone part who said that he could not replace just the microphone because I had a touchscreen (you would think Dell would have checked to send the right part), then a refurbished new screen that did not work at all on my computer, and then refused to solve the problem by arguing that my system was no longer under warranty (which it was not by the time they finally sent the non working screen and I called back to ask for another one to be sent—it was all problems from their side). Wondering if anyone has had a similar problem and if they were able to fix it themselves, as now my microphone is not working at all, not even when I tilt the screen.

I have also noticed the same problem for the touch screen. It only works when the screen is tilted forward, and I am afraid that, like the microphone, it will reach a point of no return. It seems to me that there is some faulty wiring from the screen components into the base. Any help would be much appreciated!

I do believe that a recent update from Dell has made this problem chronic as I did not have this problem when I immediately got the laptop back.

Sometimes, you need to replace the router.
Sometimes, you can call your service provider and ask them to take a look on line to see if the subscription needs to be refreshed.
But often, all that is needed (despite the fact that it is a lot of work) is to uninstall your existing system, then reboot, and reinstall everything.
You might also find success by looking at your device manager in Windows to see if you have any grey, red, or yellow flags by any related device. That may show you have a permanent hardware failure if you cannot restore it, then you are off to the store or your provider for a new cable modem or router.

Hi, I can't seem to get anything higher than 1920x1080 in the list of available resolution options when I connect my Dell U2713HM monitor to my Dell Inspiron 15 laptop. I've run this monitor at 2560x1440 on another laptop over HDMI in the past but that was with Windows 8. The Intel HD Graphics 530 Control Panel doesn't offer any resolutions above 1920x1080 for the external monitor and adding custom resolutions results in the error "the custom resolution exceeds the maximum bandwidth capacity". I'm using the same high speed HDMI cable that worked at 2560x1440 with this monitor on my previous laptop. I'm fully up to date on all of the drivers for the laptop.
Does anyone have any suggestions? I'm not sure what else to try. Could this be a Windows 10 issue? Should I try the standard Intel HD Graphics 530 drivers from the Intel website?

A:Dell Inspiron 15 7559 connected to Dell U2713HM monitor over HDMI can't do 2560x1440 resolution in Windows 10

Hi JonoBloo,
The hardware on the system supports the 2560x1440. It should be a software issue. I would suggest you to uninstall and reinstall the video card driver from Dell website as these drivers are tested on the Dell system. Please follow the steps mentioned below to uninstall the video card.

Press the Windows key and Start typing devmgmt.msc and then press enter.
Select the Display adapters listed and right click on it.
Now select properties.
In the properties window, under Driver tab, click on Uninstall button.
Check “Delete the driver software for this device.”
You want to delete the driver click OK.

After the uninstall finishes restart the system. Then reinstall the Intel video card driver for issue resolution. Please enter your service tag # on the link below, select the OS, then download the video card drivers from Video section onto the system and install it.

have dell cut the laptop off from loading as it will only load half way then stops and wont carry on loading to the end

A:my dell inspiron 5160 only loads half way the dell logo come

I doubt Dell have done anything - your computer has developed a fault,Tap F8 key during startup and see if you can see a menu with Safe Mode mentioned. If it is there go for it and let us know if it then boots up. Note that in Safe Mode things will look rather different (large icons etc). If this fault came on recently and you can get into Safe Mode then you could do system restore to a time before the problem came along - type System Restore in search.Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Hello,

I have a problem with my new laptop and it happens only sometimes. It is around 1 month old and it had this problem from the beginning . The laptop is a DELL INSPIRON 3552
1. DELL LOGO appears
2. Screen backlight is ok
3. Windows won't start ( window's logo doesn't appear ) and if i plug an external mouse the cursor is on the black screen.
If I shut down the laptop from the power button and the start it again it works. It's very random. Once I had to restart the laptop for 3 times before the windows started.
Any ideas ? 

A:DELL Inspiron Windows screen black after DELL logo

Hi,
Thank you for writing to us!
As we understand that the system doesnt not boot and just goes up to the Dell logo and after multiple restarts the system works fine.
In that case ,Can you boot the system into " Safe mode " and check if the same happens..You can also perform a system restore and also check for updates pending .
Thanks

1) Extract the files to another folder
2) Open the folder with extracted files copy the path of the x64 drivers
3) Go to Control Panel>Device Manager>Mice and other pointing devices
4) Right click mice and other pointing devices, select Update Driver>From Hard-Disk

I have a Dell inspiron 530 that will not boot. Its running xp professional with a core 2 quad. When I turn it on i hear one beep and it sticks at the boot splash screen. F2 and F12 do nothing. So far I have tried the following:

1)Swapped hard drive out with a known working one.
2)Removed both sticks of 1gig ram and placed them in different slots.
3)Swapped out one stick of ram at a time to determine if one is defective.
4)Swapped out all ram with known working ram.
5)Removed radeon graphics card.
6)Tried to do a repair on windows from a disk but I cannot get into the boot settings.
7)Tried unplugging everything except the monitor and power cord.

After attempting these steps I still receive the same results everytime. I was thinking about removing and re-seating the processor, but I figure someone with more knowledge than me would have another suggestion for me to try. I fear the worst for this PC assuming it is the motherboard or processor. No new hardware or software was added to this system when the issue started. Thanks in advance for any help/suggestions.

Try clearing the CMOS, might be the solution. if that doesn't work you could try flashing the bios, here's the documention on how to do both. Just follow the steps exactly and you'll be fine, it requires you to go into the actual computer to do it.

I am constantly having this problem with my laptop. As I plug in and unplug my headphones throughout the day, I've noticed that after a couple times the bass gets really quiet and almost completely drops out. Since I have some pretty decent audiophile headphones with really great bass, it is super annoying and noticeable. 
One workaround I have discovered is to go to the audio settings (either in Windows or the Dell Audio app), and switch the Default Format (the thing with 24-bit, 48000Hz in it)  to something else, play some audio, then switch it back. 
A little word on my setup: I have the latest drivers from the Dell download page installed. I am running Windows 10 64-bit with all the updates. I have Waves Maxx audio "enhancements" disabled. My Default Format is usually set to 24-bit 48000Hz, but the problem eventually happens no matter what I set it to. The "headphone size" option is set to "Medium", but as far as I can tell this option does nothing if I do not have Waves Maxx enabled. Switching it also does not fix the problem.
If I play audio using WASAPI (this basically means that the music player takes over the sound card completely, and bypasses whatever audio processing Windows and the driver has) the problem does not happen. 
How do I fix this problem? It's incredibly annoying, and most likely has something to do with the audio driver, since this does not happen in Linux, and it did not happen when I was runn... Read more

I was considering migrating from the Inspiron 2-in-1 13" laptop to the 15.6" one, but I will wait until the answer for your question. I'm beginning to think that not every Dell 2-in-1 laptop has a digitizer capable of being operated my an active stylus pen. There're some complains about the Special Edition of the 13" 2-in-1 series. Also, sometimes the same incompatibility within a given model. Maybe Dell removes the digitizer without altering the laptop product number. Talking about a possibility. 
Currently, I'm waiting for the 750-AALP Active pen to deliver. Dell said that it will work with a 7348 laptop, that has its 750-AAGN prematurely failed.

Hi all,
I have just acquired a dell Inspiron 5547 laptop. I believe it originally shipped with Windows 8 but the previous owner has upgraded it to Windows 10. I went into the control panel of Windows 10 and chose the option to remove the previous users data and reset the pc. However mid-way into the reset I received an error saying "there was a problem while resetting your pc" and then gave me a few options I selected "continue, exit and continue to Windows 10" however after this the laptop will not boot. It sits on the dell logo and then goes black then returns to the dell logo. I am unsure of what to do, and when I press F8 I cannot access recovery. Do I need to reinstall Windows 10 from a USB? If I do so how will I activate it as the original Windows 8 product key is not on the back. Thanks

At the head of this I will suggest that this is a motherboard failure.
Cannot use the function keys.

I have:

1) unplugged all peripherals prior to start up
2) unplugged from mains and held down starter key before plugging and restarting.
3) Cleared CMOS as per owners manual p 196

I now have lined down the screen and the Dell splash screen is just sitting there like an inert screensaver.

Note: no abnormal beeps.

So Dell made a really terrible decision.  They have a transparent strip in the power button for an LED light to indicate if the power is on.  A power indicator is a given in any laptop, no matter how cheap it is.  However, Dell in all of it's genius decided to not include an LED bulb on laptops up to the Inspiron 7000 Series, despite leaving a transparent slot for it.  Seriously, what happened to this brand?!?  Do children make these laptops now?
I want to fix this, as my laptop is no longer returnable and a power indicator is absolutely necessary.  So the only thing I can think of is replacing it with one from the 7000 Series somehow (with some help probably).
This is a Dell Inspiron 5559.  I also have an Inspiron 5547.  Not sure which exact 7000 model I should get the part for...
Are they compatible?
Is there an easier way? Like how Fn+H turns on the hard drive indicator?
Thanks.

A:Can I replace a Dell Inspiron 15 5000 Series power board with a Dell Inspiron 15 7000 Series power board?

The systems use different case and mainboard designs -- and may even be made by different companies.  The answer in all likelihood is no.
I don't think Apple has produced a Macbook with a power indicator -- the PC vendors are playing follow Apple.

To make sure your Going from SATA to USB, if so, then are you using the USB with + or power port.  Depending on the motherboard.  (had the same issue in the E Series Dells)    Also, SATA does not provide power on its own, it needs to be plugged in, or you need to plug the two cables into two usb ports
the cable for it could be One connector, and two on the other side.  The main cable is the data+power, the other is the extra Power.  USB gives Max 3.3V, SATA usually need 5 or 12V to work.
If all else fails pull your CD drive and connect to that if you can.

Hi!
I've a DELL INSPIRON ONE 2020 All-In-One PC (purchased on 15th April, 2013). I installed the Insider's Build of Windows 10 x64 about 2 months ago. I wasn't satisfied with it's performance, so I decided to reinstall Windows 8 in it (which came preinstalled as OEM when I purchased the PC). But unfortunately (for me), the DELL BACKUP AND RECOVERY software which I discretely installed in it failed to apply the factory image with error somewhat stating, "DBAR failed to apply the image". Also, the Dell Backup and Recovery is not even available in the Bootup Recovery mode and not even if I press F8 or other function keys. I googled and found methods to apply the image using ImageX tool in boot mode. I put the hotfix KB2525084 (actually the ImageX tool) in my Pendrive and in the recovery mode, I used Command Prompt and typed the follwing command:
j:\imagex /apply f:\DELL\Image\PART0001\EFI.wim 1 c:\
where j:\ is my pendrive ; f:\ was the partition with .wim image in it ; c:\ was the OS path to be recovered.
It completed in just 4 seconds! But other websites stated that it would take around 15-20 minutes to complete applying the image. I understood that something is fishy, and I was right! The PC didn't boot again. Also the apllied image showed just somewhat 250mb of data, but my hard disk (named PBR Image) was of around 9gb in size. The swm files in it (2 in nos.) were around 4gb each. I looked another forum and that stated to format the C:\ drive. I... Read more

2560x1600/1440 is strictly the province of 60Hz. Dual link DVI -the connectivity for most (if not all) 2560x 1440/1600 screens (27-30") would probably run into bandwidth problems trying to provide 120Hz 32-bit colour at that resolution.

Configuration: CRT-Display/Graphics-Card combination running so far with Windows XP at 100Hz and 120Hz.

Latest Drivers for Graphics Card installed ? and the Monitor is also correctly recognized under it's official name and manufacturer.

Problem: highest possible and selectable frequency with Windows 8 is 85Hz (and not 100Hz/120Hz (depending on screen size) as in Windows XP) ...

How to set 100Hz and 120Hz as in WinXP (with same screen sizes)?

A:Not more than 85Hz with CRT Display able to run 100/120Hz

Is there a reason you're still holding onto CRT displays? They've been out of production/out of style for a good 4~6 years now and are quite limited in resolution and aren't widescreen. That said, 85Hz should be plenty speedy enough as it is. If you can't select higher, it's probably because windows or your graphics card have not detected higher. Are you using proper drivers? You may need a driver for your monitor (there's a few cases where this is necessary and CRTs are connected via an analog VGA cable, which does even less to communicate information back to the PC about the monitor's capabilities). If you're using nVidia, you could also try setting a custom resolution with the refresh rate in mind, and see if it takes it.

I've never seen a person using a CRT with any machine that can run Vista, 7, or 8 so I don't know if perhaps they limited the selectable refresh rate to 85hz in the post-XP era...

A:120hz resolution issues

I think that's normal, your games are 3-D capable so when you swtich to 120hz then it can use 60hz for one signal and 60hz for the other signal. Videos and regualar display are not 3-D capable, there is just one signal so at 120 hz its just going to distort.
This differs from 120 hz HDTVs where the signal is the same 60hz (or very close to it) but the HDTV interpolates that signal, placing a made up frame inbetween two real frames, its not actually driving the signal at 120hz....except for 3-D televisions which have the same capability as your Viewsonic if they receive a sterioscopic signal.

Only the first two options will get you to 120 fps on any game made within the last few years. I have a machine with an i7 and 970 SLI and a machine with an i7 and an EVGA 980 Superclock and at 2560x1440 only the 970s can manage... and not all the time. Most of the time I set my monitor refresh to 100Hz because there's a much greater chance that my cards can get me there.

I don't have any AMD GPUs atm so can't say about that but I will say that I've had one hell of a time getting XFX to honor their warranties in the past.

Hi everyone!

My current specs are as folllows:

Intel i5 3570K (Stock)
ASUS GTX 670 DCII (Stock)
GSkill Ripjaws 2x4GB

Currently gaming on a Samsung SyncMaster B2030 20" monitor. The resolution is only 1600x900 @ 60Hz.

I was thinking that I should pick up a new monitor to justify the rig that I've built. I have been looking at 24" monitors that have a resolution of 1920x1080. Now, here's the dilemma. I see a lot of 120Hz monitors and people saying that they are much better suited to gaming (especially FPS, which is what I usually enjoy). Upon researching a bit, I came upon the BenQ XL2420T. It's quite expensive but I might just be able to pick it up if it's completely worth it. So here are my questions:

1. Has anyone had any experience with the BenQ XL2420T and what are your views?

2. Is 120Hz worth it and will there be any noticeable difference?

3. Will my single GTX 670 be able to handle it? Just for perspective, I run Crysis 3 @ a little over 50 FPS average with all settings Very High, FXAA and Transparency AA enabled in nVidia Control Panel. I'm also open to OCing my GPU and CPU (using a Corsair H100).

4. Any other suggestions?

Look forward to your responses.
 

A:Monitor advice -- 120Hz worth it for gaming?

The 670 will be able to give you those 120 fps in less demanding games, however you may end up turning the quality and resolution down for the more demanding titles (such as Crysis 3). So you have a choice, sacrifice image quality for more fluid game-play, or get an IPS monitor, which will give you much superior color, but you'll have to live with 60 fps. (In my opinion, 60fps is enough, although that's a matter of opinion)

Im having a problem with my ViewSonic VX2265wm FuHzion Monitor. Its 120hz and 3D ready, however when i change the refresh rate from 59 to 120hz, the screen duplicates into a 4 way split screen. I have a GeForce GT 220 video card, Win-7 64 bit and all the necessary requirements in order for it to work. Anybody know why this is happening?

A:120hz monitor 4way splitscreen error

Sorry, I don't have the answer since 120Hz monitors are new. I take it is supports 120Hz inputs as opposed to upconverting 60Hz signals as a 120Hz TV does? Does it require the NVIDIA 3D Vision kit, or only to play games in 3D? In googling, I see it uses a special DVI cable, I'm assuming you are using that? Does the manual mention any special GPU settings other than the change to 120Hz? A Guy

Howdy,
I recently formatted my laptop and reinstalled Win98. But now i'm stuck with 16 colors, no modem, or sound.
Does anyone know where i can find one of those System Information Disk for a Dell Inspiron 7500.
Or do you happen to know a site where i can find all the drivers i need?
I did the same thing not long ago to a Inspiron 3500 and I had the System Info disk and it fixed all the problems i'm having now, so i belive thats what i need.
Thanks,
Cybertaz126
