    I own a Inspiron 15-3521 that I bought about 2 1/2 years ago.  Recently the HDD died.  I bought a replacement but I need to know how to get the Windows and Driver installs.  I have the new drive loaded into a portable case assuming that this would be the easiest way to transfer the boot files since I don't have an install disk.  Any help would be appreciated

  • 08/30/15--20:03: Clicking noise on start up
  • My Inspiron 5721 now with windows 10 but started doing this with windows 8.1

    It's been making some strange sounds sometimes when I start it up with only the battery it would make a click but not really beeping sound and it wouldn't boot up, since I didn't think the sound was good I immediately took out the battery especially since it sounded electrical.

      I plugged it , put the the battery in again and it would start up no problem, as time went on I had to do this every time. The last few days I have had to leave the battery out and turn it on without battery at all..

    I saw on another post that it may be the hard drive so I did what was suggested

     I turned it off unplugged and took out the battery, held down the power button for 20 sec.  Then I plugged it back in and turned it on and tapped the F12 key on start up and nothing happened. doesn't work on my laptop.

    But, as I was trying this I didn't have the battery in it and it starting making the clicking noise with it only being on AC.

    I have been backing up my files in fear of loosing everythng. and I don't want to turn it off again just to test it in fear of it completely crashing.

    Can you tell me if this is my hard drive,  or what test should I do 

    I found this on another website

    "you can run a hard drive test utility. I usually use Hitachi’s drive fitness test. This test is reliable and easy to use."

    Can anyone suggest this or another test I can do without having to turn the computer off?

    Thank you

    Hi good day. I have a Dell Latitude E6420. The problem is every time I left it unused for several hours, it won't turn on. The light in the power button shows up for only a few seconds and then it turns of. When I tried to plug in the AC Adapter, it won't turn on. However, when I press the power button for more than 10 seconds, the speakers make a weird static-like sound and when I press the power button again, the computer turns of and works fine. Please answer this. Thanks in advance!

    PS The light indicators are not blinking. Only the power button's light is lit.

    Hi all,

    I had ordered a Macbook Pro 15 as soon as the new models were released, and got to the stage where it was ready to be collected from the local store, when a friend showed me the XPS15, with 4K screen. It wasn't a consideration because of Windows 8.1, but I'm on Windows 10 now and love it. I told the store to sell the model I ordered to someone else (there was a queue for them!).

    However, looking at the XPS specs, it's still on the haswell chip (as is the mac), and it looks like the current incarnation of the XPS is coming up to 2 years old. I see the XPS13 is on the broadwell.

    I'm desperate for a new notebook, as my current model doesn't really work, but I don't want to buy one and see an updated model released 2 months later with a Skylake chip, etc. I know apple are very secretive about this sort of thing, but there are rumour sites that hint at release dates.

    Is there any kind of guide on when the new XPS15 will be released, as I could hold out a little longer if it's for a month or two? Otherwise, I think I'll have to go to the macbook.

    Thanks in advance.

    Hi all. I have an inspiron 1720 that looses the drive letter assigned to it.

    My Laptop:

    Inspiron 1720

    Core 2 Duo 2.4Ghz (an upgrade)

    HDD1 320Gig

    HDD2 750Gig

    4Gb DDR2 6400 ram

    Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit

    On the whole the laptop is really good, with all the upgrades I have done to it it is very very quick.

    The one and only issue I have is with the drive letter for my 2nd hard drive.

    Before I fitted the hard drives both were formatted in NTFS with another computer.

    The 320 gig has windows installed on it and has no problems at all.

    The 750 gig hard drive is installed in the 2nd hard drive bay and shows up in my bios (which is up to date, version 09 if memory serves) and installed fine when windows first started. My problem is that I can set a drive letter for it in manage but as soon as I reboot the laptop it looses the drive letter and I have to go into manage and assign it again.

    I have tried a 120gig hard drive in the 2nd bay and exactly the same thing happens.

    If anyone is able to help me with this issue I would be very greatful.

    I have a N7110 that was running Windows 7.  On occasion I would connected it via HDMI to my HDTV.  This setup worked great.  After upgrading to Windows 10, the HDMI port seems to be "disabled".  My HDTV simply says "no signal" since upgrading.

    I know some drivers are lacking Windows 10 support, but the video adapter (Intel HD 2000) that was installed in Windows 7 is the SAME VERSION as the one installed in Windows 10.  Any idea why I would use the HDMI functionality after my upgrade?  I am running the latest and greatest driver version from Intel:

    Thanks for any suggestions!

    XPS 15 late 2013 on window 10 but it happened like a month before i got windows 10, needed it for work so not had a chance to see about getting it fixed.

    Bars only appear on certain colours and are most notable whilst watching videos, where they are ever present, but on most websites with white background they cant be noticed at all. 

    Any idea what is wrong and how i can get it fixed?

  • 08/31/15--10:58: RAM Error
  • Hi all, I have a Dell Inspiron 7000 series 7548 Laptop.  This laptop is around 3 months old.

    Ever since windows 10 rolled out, I immediately downloaded it.  A week afterwards I found my computer would not boot.  Upon pressing the power button, the light would blink fit half a second and then turn off.  Pursuing power more didn't boot.  I thought it was a memory error, since the night before I got multiple blue screens of death saying BAD POOL HEADER or MEMORY ERROR, so I got the idea to open my laptop up.

    There are two sticks of four GB RAM.  After a little tinkering, I found my computer could only boot with the Slot B stick in and the Slot A stick taken out.  At first I thought this was a faulty RAM stick, but recently I bought a new stock and it worked -- for about 12 hours.  After that I found my laptop unable to boot with 8gb RAM.  

    As of now it's running on 4 GB RAM.  Anyone got a fix?  Is Windows 10 the problem?

    I have a e7350 that doesn't like sleep mode.  If i tell it to go to sleep and shut the lid and the wait say 5 or ten minutes and open the lid it is still awake.  IF i tell it to go to sleep after 30 minutes of inactivity then i leave it alone for an hour and open the lid it wakes up.  What gives?  Thanks.

  • 08/31/15--13:00: Can't boot from USB
  • Hello, I have a Dell xps l412z and I want to boot a Linux Live USB but apparently it doesn't work.

    I press F12 to change the boot device, and there's no exist any option related to USB devices, only something like "Diskette drive". When I choose that option, apparently try to boot the USB device, but jus stay there with a text header with the following message: "SYSLINUX 4.0.2".

    I downloaded the A06 version of the BIOS driver and nothing change. Also, In the BIOS setup doesn't appear any option related to secure boot or something like that.

    Is this a known issue or maybe there's something that I can do to fix my problem?
