I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hello all I'm hoping someone can assist me with a sudden Win boot up issue on Dell Studio laptop which coincidentally just came off its one year warranty ONE WEEK ago It's actually my cousin's laptop who is attending college and needs this up and running rather quickly His brother took a whack at it by trying to install an OEM copy of Win bit but had no luck He also had attempted to perform the Dell Datasafe recovery but he stated it was not working And since it did not come with recovery discs nope they did not create their own note loop Dell Win in Studio, stuck restart 7, to self remind other family members to create their win recovery discs Then the laptop came to me I immediately tried the same Dell datasafe recovery steps using Dell Studio, Win 7, stuck in restart loop F and choosing Repair your computer but it was so - incredibly - slow that after I chose Repair your computer from the F menu it just went to a blank black screen I let it sit for almost an hour no response I did some digging online then went into the BIOS and disabled any all devices Rebooted tried F repair again and this time was able to proceed But upon choosing next etc it did not present me with the options that Dell says should be there as described here - Restoring Your Dell Computer to Original Factory Installation with Dell DataSafe Local Backup Dell I did not have an option named quot Dell Factory Image Recovery and DataSafe options quot This is the menu I arrived at standard Win System recovery http res windows microsoft com re bcc jpg And so here are the additional Dell Studio, Win 7, stuck in restart loop details of where it stands now I appreciate your help Dell Studio Win i believe it came with bit When you boot up it repeatedly comes to options - Launch Startup repair recommended - Start Windows normally When I choose to start normally it passes the Dell logo splash screen a split second literally flash of a blue screen error and then immediately reboots After taking a video of the boot up and stopping on that frame this is the error quot A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer If this is Dell Studio, Win 7, stuck in restart loop the first time you've seen this stop error screen restart your computer If this screen appears again follow these steps Check for viruses on your computer Remove any newly installed hard quot and then the rest of the message fades At that point it performed the immediate reboot Upon reboot it comes the same options above - Launch Startup repair recommended - Start Windows normally I've tried the Dell steps to enter their Recovery partition which does seem to exist as a partition by pressing Ctrl F at the Dell logo But the same exact symptoms occur as above quick flash of the blue screen error then reboots I've run the Startup repair a few times all with the same result Signature and repair log provided below one thing that caught my attention was the repair log showing the windows directory location as D windows Startup Repair Windows cannot repair this computer automatically Problem signature Problem Event Name StartupRepairOffline Problem Signature Problem Signature Problem Signature unknown Problem Signature Problem Signature AutoFailover Problem Signature Problem Signature BadDriver OS Vresion Locale ID Startup Repair diagnosis and repair log details ------------------------ Last successful boot time AM Number of repair attempts ------------------------ Session details ------------------------ System Disk Device Harddisk Windows directory D Windows AutoChk Run Number of root causes Test Performed ------------------------ Name Check for updates Result Completed successfully Error code x Time taken ms Test Performed ------------------------ Name System disk test Result Completed successfully Error code x Time taken ms Test Performed ------------------------ Name Disk failure diagnosis Result Completed successfully Error code x Time taken ms Test Performed ----...

A:Dell Studio, Win 7, stuck in restart loop

What was the previous operating system?
You mention that this person attempted to install an OEM copy of W7 64 bit, on top of a system that you "think" had W7 64 bit already on it.
If I am wrong in this, please tell me. If I am right, why?

There may be ways to get to the Dell reinstall routine, but generally, all will be lost. I am assuming that you do not want this.

The real situation is this, please double check that both versions are of the 64 bit nature. 32 bit, and 64 bit conversion will cause data loss.

If both are 64 bit, then I think that we can get through this, with a reinstall, and the data being saved into a windows old folder.

Let me first start off by saying I have limited knowledge on PCs.

I was browsing the internet when out of nowhere it started acting up. McAfee popped up in the bottom of the screen and my laptop began lagging pretty bad. Well it got stuck at that point with absolutely no response to any commands so I powered it off. When attempting to power back on, it loaded about 2/3 of the way on the welcome screen, and then froze at that point. It repeatedly does this. Upon hitting ESC, it says that my system BIOS are shadowed and my video BIOS are shadowed. Can anyone help? Thanks in advance.

I searched for KB2251489 and it said that someone had called and was told this problem was going to be fixed, but the last post in that thread had been in June. Has there been a fix to this yet?

On a Dell, if some other OS was installed, the Dell "PC Restore" (Recovery Partition) is no longer valid (corrupted) and the only way to reinstall is with a Windows OS installation disc and then download whatever device drivers you need from the Dell downloads.

when i turn my computer on. it goes to a black screen that says "windows error recovery"
"launch start up repair" which is highlighted. it counts down and then automaticly
starts.

then the message is "windows cannot repair this automaticly"
then i am given the option to send info to microsoft
it doesn't seem to matter if i send or not. the start up repair menu remains
asking "if you have reciently attached an exterrnal device, mp3, camera ect.. contact admin if you keep seeing this message."
"click finish to shut down your comp."
2 options are at bottom of menu top one says "view diognostic details
the bottom one says "view advanced options for recovery and support"
clicking on either seems to just result in a frozen screen and the compter never boots up.

When the PC starts up, the dell loading screen begins. Normally this takes around a few seconds but this time it didn't end. We've tried all the diagnostic tests and they all came back fine. Also tried disconnecting all external cables (ie headphones, ethernet etc). Powered on and off multiple times and no change. 
By the way, I don't know if this is related or not, but last night before the issue occurred, I was randomly logged out. Once it logged me back in, everything was closed and there was a small square of like TV static towards the bottom right corner. I restarted and it fixed the issue there but I don't know.

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.

Hi Everyone!
I've got an issue with my Dell XPS m1730 laptop. For some reason Windows automatically locks up out of a blue and I've got to do a force shut down to unfreeze it. So my laptop did it again last night which meant having to do another force shut down but now it is stuck on the Dell screen. I followed the tutorial here by taking the battery out and holding in the power button in for a few seconds but this solution is no longer working and the loading bar gets to 75% or less and does nothing. I've been told this is a bios issue and I got told to downgrade from A11 to A10 but the problem has not gone away. I am starting to think it is a graphics card issue due to Windows locking but I am not sure. Has anyone got any advice what this could be?

Thanks 

-James

Hello SF!

Yesterday, i installed Windows 7 Home Premium on my sister's Dell Studio 1735, but there aren't W7 drivers for this model (Only Vista 32/64) and there are 2 devices i cant install cause WU can't find their drivers (Unknown Devices), i DO have the Recovery and OEM Partitions, to revert it to Win Vista, thing is i don't want to.. Win Vista STINKS!

So, there's any chance for me to actually install those 2 drivers? or should i revert it to Win Vista??

Thanks in advanced!

What devices are they? Look on the manufacturer's site for drivers. If you can't find any for 7, download the Vista ones. If they won't install, run them in compatibility mode for Vista.

Problem:

On Christmas night, I did as I usually did - turned off my Dell PC by holding the power button until it all turns black and went to sleep with the charger still plugged in AS USUAL.

Then the morning of December 26, my PC did NOT turn on - and guessing it "broke" with no apparent warning. I took out the charger, waited a couple hours, and plugged my charger back in, hoping there was a power-outage Christmas night. The charger light turned white, indicating charge was being put in, and then it turned off, indicating charge was finished - and my pc still DID NOT turn on!

I also have Mcafee Virus Remover, which automatically scans my pc and destroys viruses each and every day.

What the hell is the problem here!?

In the real world this NEVER happens, it is only a wish. Who taught you to hold the power button to shut down Windows? You could have corrupted the hard drive. Have you ever used a mouse to select the Start button and shutting down the notebook that way? The motherboard could be toast too

Studio worked fine until in the cold in for for a few hours, below zero cold. Now no battery power at all. Even when plugged in, when I hit eh power button, the light sequence on the keyboard lights, but after a few seconds only the volume button remails lit. Then, after 20-30 seconds, even that light goes out and the sound stops. The screen is dead black the whole time.

Help. Thanks.

Hani if it worked on vista it will work with the same driver on win 7 if you install the driver in compatibility mode
to do that right click the installer>properties>choose OS.

I need a new PSU for my desktop since the one that i currently have is only 350 watts and it makes really annoying fan noise.
You think this is a good deal and will it fit my computer?
500W Power Supply fo Dell Studio XPS 8000/8100 K159T PC | eBay
If you guys have any other suggestions feel free.
And sorry if this isn't in the right topic.
Thanks

A:Will this PSU fit my Dell Studio XPS 8100?

It may "fit", but that doesn't mean anything.

At one time, most Dells used a proprietary wiring setup on their power supplies. For those PCs, you could NOT simply change to an industry-standard ATX power supply.

Dell has largely moved away from that practice, but a Google search implies that some Dells (possibly including the XPS 8100) still use proprietary wiring on PSUs. I couldn't quickly find definitive information.

So you may still need a "special" PSU for that PC and that may be what the Ebay dealer is selling.

But even then I wouldn't buy the PSU you linked. It's a no-name brand and you have no way of evaluating it nor do you know anything about its noise level (which I guess is one of your complaints).

I would:

1: Google to try to find definitive info on whether or not you need a "special" PSU for your PC.
2: If you do, I would then buy a standard ATX PSU along with a connection adapter designed to allow use of a standard ATX PSU in this particular Dell. The adapters are widely available for about $15. Endpcnoise.com is one source for the adapter--among others.

I'd get a Seasonic or Corsair PSU that are known to have low noise levels. You may have to spend a bit more money.

On the other hand, you may find that your PC can use a standard PSU---in which case you would not need the adapter.

At any rate, I would not buy that Ebay PSU regardless. Go somewhere like Newegg as a source.

I'd also measure the existing PSU and make sure there are no space/clearance issues should you go with a standard PSU. For all I know, the Dell cases are very cramped or they may have even used a non-standard size as well as non-standard wiring.

You might contact forum member "Fireberd" about this. He has a lot of Dell experience and provides support on Dell forums.

A:Dell Studio XP Drivers?

A lot of prebuilt resellers are doing the whole "we're not offering Windows whatever drivers" hogwash on their websites, even if the hardware itself is compatible. I've found this with my laptop (Asus F3 series) and with my gaming rig (Asus M2N SLI Deluxe).

Usually, however, if you find the manufacturer of the hardware component itself, you can find some generic drivers or manufacturers drivers that will function.

Considering that Dell has a "switch to XP for $50" option on a lot of their desktops, I imagine you shouldn't have too much trouble.

As for your video card, there are a few sites that specialize in making generic drivers for mobile chipsets. The problem with mobile chipsets is that often a vendor will to lock you into using only their drivers, rather than the OEM drivers from ATI/AMD or Nvidia. That's why those third party sites exist.

I'd worry about the other components of your laptop more than the video card.

I like to work under the thinkg that if it isn't broken don't fix it. But if Dell has released specific 7 drivers for your system.You can check what driver is installed simply by going to device manager and clicking on that device and checking the driver detail tab. If your unhappy with the graphics prefromance now then I would probably install their new driver.

Hi mate,

The heat on a laptop is important but it depends for what purposes. As for you for little gaming, movies and internet in other words home use the heat won't be a big problem as the laptop will not on continuous running for long hours thus heat won't be a great problem.

Now for the Screen both are good and will satisfied you now choose the better price for you as both have good resolution and both are LED LCD meaning less power/battery consumption and less heat due LED LCD are not too much hungry as normal LCD screens.

Hope it helps.

A:Dell studio 15 overheating

In a perfect world, the parts would be perfectly flat, be placed in direct contact with each other, and no thermal paste would be used. As that is not the case, the thermal paste is used to fill the inconsistencies and aid in cooling. In other words, what you see is normal.

You can completely remove the paste from both pieces, reinstall more thermal paste (only a small amount is needed), and put them back together.

Having said all of that, as that model has always had overheating issues, there isn't likely much that can be done. Always use the laptop on a hard surface (ie: desk or table top), and you could use a cooling pad.

You are connecting a USB device that is causing problems (either the device, its drivers or the corresponding usb drivers.)

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.

I've uploaded what the screen looks like.

ZoneAlarm firewall is the cause of all three of your BSOD's

Uninstall then run the ZoneAlarm remover to clear up any leftovers.

AVG is also notorious in causing BSOD's on some Winows 7 systems. If BSOD's continue after ZoneAlarm removal, suggest uninstallng AVG, afterwards run the relevant AVG Remover for your system in Safe Mode. Download BSOD friendly Microsoft Security Essentials as its replacement.

My anyone Windows Studio from 540 10? Dell 7 Has updated to a daughter has a Dell Studio running Windows Home Premium -bit and she's been asking me if it's OK to upgrade to Windows Since I live several hundred miles from her I didn't Has anyone updated a Dell Studio 540 from Windows 7 to 10? want to tell her to go ahead until I had a chance to check things out and now I'm wondering myself what to do I fired up some Dell utility for drivers and updates and it came back with a message that said the Studio had not been tested for compatibility with Windows and if an upgrade was attempted things might not work Of course that doesn't really mean they won't it only means that Dell hasn't tested anything and they're covering themselves just in case Now The Windows Upgrade Icon is in her system tray and it says that the machine was tested and found to be compatible with no issues found so drivers might exist from Microsoft So has anyone upgraded a Dell Studio If so what if any problems did you encounter

A:Has anyone updated a Dell Studio 540 from Windows 7 to 10?

Microsoft is often provided with drivers not designed specifically for the computer, which means updating is risky. It probably will work, but you always run the risk of crashing, or small problems like it having a hard time coming out of sleep mode, etc.

If she really wants it, she can try it out, and revert back if it doesn't work in month provided to revert.

To remove the tray icon, do this: Get Windows 10 Icon - Remove from Taskbar in Windows 7 and 8.1 - Windows 10 Forums

I want to upgrade to Windows 7, used the Upgrade Advisor, no problem.
The only thing I need before I want to install Win 7 are the drivers.
HOWEVER Dell hasnt got any drivers suitable for my PC!
When I go to the download page, it only gives 2 options:
-> Windows Vista 32 bit
-> Windows Vista 64 bit
What am I to do?
I really want to upgrade, but if the drivers are missing, my PC wont work!
Do the vista drivers work for 7 as well???
Please help me!

In most cases, Vista drivers will work for Windows 7 as well. However, you might like to try a clean installation - the DVD contains many more drivers than the one for Vista, and you might not actually need any others.

If you have other wireless computers connected, sometimes IP addresses can become confused depending on how you have configured your router. If it is safe to do so then sometimes powering off your router for 30 seconds can fix this.

Also, scan your system with SuperAntiSpyware, trackers, when there are enough of them can cause these network symptoms also.

Dell Studio Fingerprint ID + UKASH
Hoping some wise soul has an answer I don't. I have a Dell Studio with fingerprint ID which is what I always used to log on. There is also a password option.

The laptop is a family laptop, children have changed password but forgotten. No problem as my fingerprint still works.....right up until the UKASH malware locks it up. I'm aware that there are ways of remedying this problem in Safe Mode....however the fingerprint ID feature does not appear to be available to log onto the computer in safe mode.

Does anyone have any idea if indeed I can somehow log in with fingerprint ID in safe mode so that I can address the malware issue? I'm so frustrated and perhaps may have to pay someone to help with the issue, but I thought I would try here first. Any ideas are sincerely appreciated.

So I was given a Dell Studio 1735. I decided just because I want too, that I wanna try and change the  i'm processor, and the motherboard. Particularly the motherboard with the ATI Mobility Radeon HD 3650. I'd like to assume that the processor can be upgraded as I could do that with a Inspiron E1505, but maybe i'm wrong. I was sure on the motherboard but I had a friend say that the motherboard would probably have different screw locations. So I figured I'd ask the community if this is possible. Thank you.

A:Upgrade my Dell Studio 1735

The only board that'll fit is a 1737 board - nothing else will fit.  It uses the same Core 2 CPU your system does, so there's not much of an upgrade there - yes,  you can fit 1066 MHz bus CPUs to the 1737 vs. the 1735, but the Core 2 is not exactly cutting edge.   Neither is the video chip much of an upgrade.
You're better off leaving the system as is and putting whatever you'd spend on such a modest upgrade toward a newer system - this one's a dead end technology-wise.

My situation is similar to one posted earlier. The laptop goes through the normal boot sequence right up to the mouse pointer on a black screen, and hangs. If I leave the computer at the black screen and pointer it eventually goes to screen saver mode.

I have completely booted the machine using a flashdrive with linux to run an antivirus scan, but windows will not boot.

I have thought that a factory restore is in order, however, when I go to the advanced Boot options menu the "repair your computer" option isn't there.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. BTW this computer is not mine, it was brought to me to clean up...obviously needs more than a cleaning.

Hi there,

I have a dell studio 1558 laptop with windows 7 home premium. I have an issue wherein windows 7 restarts itself. It does throw a BSOD but I can't capture/see that as it immediately restarts after that. I read somewhere in this forum that i should uncheck the option "automatically restart on system failure" in system properties. But i can't even do that because the system restarts even before I get the login screen.
Same behavior is seen in safe mode. I tried almost all the options that appear when you press F8 key while booting. Any assistance in resolving this is greatly appreciated. Thanks.

So I recently installed Windows 7 on a brand new hard drive on my Dell Studio 1558. I took it to a russian guy in a repair shop to install the drivers and utilities for me since I did not know which drivers I needed. But now that I got my laptop back things are working fine, except for some small things. First is when I adjust my volume, theres no small interface showing volume level while on my old hard drive is was there. Secondly my eject button is not working but can still eject using My Computer. Another is no more notification of Caps Lock in use or not.

So what Im wondering is, could it be that Russian guy installed the drivers incorrectly or in the wrong order as what Dell says?
