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.)

A: Dell Studio 1737 Memory Test Errors

If you are getting errors from Memory tests the first thing I would be looking at is the RAM. Faulty RAM can cause no end of apparently random errors which can lead you all over the place trying to find the cause.

If you have 2 or more sticks of RAM take them all out and try running the PC with just 1 stick at a time to see if the fault occurs. If you get the error with one particular stick installed then there is a reasonable chance you have a faulty RAM module, if it happens with all I would double check by doing the same test but put the RAM in a different slot on the motherboard.

Ok guys this is the problem. I dropped my computer and cracked the screen. Its not covered in the warrenty and i have to have it fixed. I was wondering if i could send my computer into dell and have them check to see whats wrong with it and send me the bill? Also i would like to have the touch screen put on it and instead of Vista have Windows 7. If there is a better approach to doing this please inform me. If you have any questions about my operating systems or anything like that ask away.

Thanks for all your help.

It could be any number of things but my first 2 guesses are possibly the hard drive or motherboard.you might want to take it somewhere so that you will get a correct diagnosis.

VA27000,
The problem would be that some of the hardware would not function properly;if all. This is due to not having the needed drivers for Windows 10.

This isn't actually a new issue but I've just used an external USB mouse since it occurred. The dell touchpad no longer will respond to anything. All of the touch buttons at the top work fine as does the keyboard. I just don't know if its a hardware issue or a driver issue. I installed the latest drivers and it still doesn't work so I'm assuming it could be hardware.

What also struck me as odd is that after installing the dell touchpad program and drivers I can't seem to launch the dell touchpad utility. It asks me to run the program but it never actually runs the computer acts as if I hadn't done anything.

Any ideas folks?

I currently have a Studio 1737 with a 500GB SSD, Windows 10, and recently bought a Studio 1749 with a 750GD SATA HD, Windows 10.

I'm wondering if it's possible to just switch the SSD with the SATA to the new laptop, or if I should go through the process of making a recovery USB, install the SSD to the 1749, reformat and reinstall Windows 10.  
I'm not really relishing the idea of losing all my programs with the reformat, especially since I have long since lost the registration keys, etc. for most of the programs.
Any suggestions?

A:Studio 1737 Vista to Win7 upgrade

VA27000,
One of the partitions is the diagnostics, one is the Windows Vista Restore and the other is Windows Vista.If you are doing a Windows 7 upgrade then you would leave the vista install and if you wanted to keep the diagnostic partition you can. Otherwise you could delete the vista restore partition since you installing Windows 7. If you are doing a clean install then you could delete partitions 2-3. Below is a link for Windows 7 information as well as a link to download Windows 7 drivers for your computer.

I'm working on a Dell Studio 1745 (Windows 7/2X2GB DDR3 memory) which would blue-screen on boot and beep four times. I removed and replaced the memory modules one at a time and found one module was defective, but computer would boot and run with the one good 2GB module. I ordered two new matched DDR3 2GB modules. With both new modules installed, the computer will boot then blue-screen within two minutes. I can install either of the new modules in either slot and the computer will boot and run flawlessly, but installing the second module causes it to blue-screen and shut down almost immediately. Any ideas will be immensly appreciated.

A:Dell xps 9100 System Memory failed stress test

Hello!  Normally if a memory test fails the memory chips are going bad.  What you could do is go into the computer, take out the memory and put it back in.  This is called re-seating the memory.  Make sure you unplug everything including power, hold down the power button for about 10 seconds to make sure there is no power to the motherboard.  Once you re-seat everything run the test again and if it fails you might want to consider getting some new memory chips.

I bought in Feb09 a Dell 1737 Laptop running Vista. Last Thurs I received an update to my Radeon 3650 Graphics Card, loaded it, rebooted and all H broke out.
Mostly Windows components failed, like Desktop Mgr. Startup items, etc
Couldn’t get on Internet Explorer but Google Chrome was running.
Did a restore to a month earlier, didn’t help. Updated Windows, loaded netFrameWork 1.1, Radeon again, checked if I was up to date on everything, no help.

Now, that it is mostly working; graphics card will drive the 47”LCD TV and I can watch some videos, like the Today show ( I think embedded ) but can’t watch streaming videos on Hulu. The video will start then windows desktop mgr or Google chrome fails and doesn’t recover.
Was on a Dell Chat session last night; the first tech updated the Bios after reboot I lost her.
Then the second guy reloaded drivers and Flash /shockwave. No Change
Please Help Me

was everything working fine before the update?
i would suggest trying to roll back the driver or uninstall and reinstall with the original disc / drivers that you used initially and keep those.
like they say if it aint broke - dont try to fix it.
personally - before trying to roll back the driver i would just opt to uninstall and reinstall with the original driver(s)

Upgraded to Windows 10 (from Windows 7) after ignoring the constant encouragement to upgrade for quite sometime. It was fine for quite some time (weeks/months). Yesterday, after a restart, the blue tiled screen with the "Choose An Option" menu came up. You can "Test Memory", "Test System" or "Exit". The problem is that when you do any of these options, it just keeps cycling back to this "Choose An Option" screen.

I have a Dell Inspiron 570 (older machine). I've gotten it to go to the BIOS Setu Utility by pressing F2 (constantly as it cycles). I have the DVD/CD in the drive, but it seems to be disabled?

I'm stuck and would appreciate any help at all...please.

Thank you,

If you are also running an Intel Core 2 Quad Q8200 processor and Intel G45/G43 Chipset I sure could use a copy of your driver for the SM Bus Controller.

A:Anybody running 64-bit dell studio 540 with dell motherboard 0m017g a00 ?

Thanks Sticky for posting the latest Intel update.
This solved my problem. Also had to update and install latest Java before any of this worked.
Side note: Intel installed 16 driver updates. Doing a complete software re-install is not that much fun.

A:RAM fails Windiag Memory test, crashes Memory 86+

Hello and welcome to Techspot.

Your problem is almost certainly caused by faulty ram.

The fact that memtest86+ is reporting ram errors, means your ram is bad.

One of your minidumps crashes with memory corruption.

Try one new stick of ram, and test your system.

The other three minidumps crash with Windows system file errors, but this can be attributed to faulty ram.

Also, one minidump crashes at SYMEvent.SYS=Symantec Event Library.

This is a known issue on some machines/configurations.

Turning off the live updates can sometimes solve this. Otherwise try using a different security product.

Regards Howard :wave: :wave:

Hi,

I work with Windows XP home edition.

I recently installed Visual C++ 6.0 from the Visual Studio 6.0 Enterprise edition.

Since then, I've started to get runtime errors when performing the most mundane of tasks.

For instance, I'll be logging into eBay and a box will popup that says: A runtime error has occurred, Do you wish to debug? Line 1587, syntax error.

I have no doubt that this is related to the Visual software, and I've since uninstalled it.

Any thoughts??

Thanks so much,

I don't know what caused three errors after using the "normal" VS Studio 15 Preview installer (as show in the screenshot). I also attached the installation log. I already have Visual Studio 2015 ( VS Studio 14) installed and I think that may have contributed to it. I was able to use the application, but I think these errors limit some functionality in terms of what I'm able to do in the preview.

Last night our second family PC Blue Screened with an 0x4E PFN_LIST_CORRUPT error which is a very strong indicator of corrupted memory.

Memory is Crucial Ballistix PC3200 (DDR 400) in a 4x512 (2 gigs) configuration in a socket 939 system Epox 9NPA+Ultra motherboard.

The specs on this memory are as follows: 2.8 voltage which the motherboard has it set at correctly as well as in 2T. The CAS is a designed 2-2-2-6 but mobo has it set at 3-4-4-8 which is probably due to the 4x512 configuration and 2T

Ran memtest and into the fifth PASS received 212 errors all in Test 5. I saw enough so I tested each stick individually for the minimum Passes of 7 and no errors on any of them even in test 5.

So I reinstalled all four sticks, checked the BIOS settings and ran Memtest again and in the very first PASS I received 20 errors in Test 5.

Any ideas?

Im not sure what you are looking for. Are you looking for a benchmarking program or are you looking for a maintenance software. Or do you have any problems where it might cause BSODs and you want to see what component is failing. As you might have guessed there is no simple answer to this question no matter how you look at it. But in order to be able to answer your question of need i first need to know what you are looking for exactly.

Sounds to me like you actually want a software that somehow scans your hardware for problems. To be honest there are no programs out there that straight of the bat does that for you and are actually accurate. If i remember right that doctor program you are talking about only checks your hdd for sector errors.

You are connecting a USB device that is causing problems (either the device, its drivers or the corresponding usb drivers.)
I suspect Creative Camera Class Upper Filter Driver....

You?ve got error messages on multiple USB drivers related to it. Please, as a test, disconnect, de-install the corresponding camera software and, if connected through a usb hub, disconnect that too.

Tried downloading from there but wasn't sure of which ones were needed and which were just bloatware..some of them that I know I need weren't installing for whatever reason...anyways here's a screen cap!

I wouldn't worry about those if I were you. In my opinion, if a) the system runs, and b) you are not missing any features you need, there is no need to mess around with those drivers.

Just after the October 22 release date, Dell posted some new graphics and other drivers for Windows 7. How can I tell whether they are needed, or should I assume that Windows Update takes care of making sure the latest drives are installed?

A:Drivers for Dell Studio

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.

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.

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

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.

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!

A:Dell Studio 1735

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.

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 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.

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.

A:24 GB Memory working in Studio XPS 435MT for $270

EDIT:  Below is for a 435T/9000, which although released about the same time, is a different model than the 435MT.  However, both are X58 boards that have 6 tri-channel memory slots.  Memory that works in one will probably work in the other.  Try at your own expense/risk (although $67 for a 2x8GB kit or $35 for a single 8GB isn't bad - link)...
----
Stress testing 48GB in my 435T/9000 now.  So far so good.  BIOS and Pre-boot System Assessment memory test both recognize all 48GB.  Windows 7 Ultimate and HWiNFO recognizes 48GB.  Using 6 x 8GB of Crucial Ballistix Sport DDR3 1600 CL9.  
Memory details:  Crucial Ballistix Sport 16GB Kit (8GBx2) DDR3 1600 MT/s (PC3-12800) UDIMM Memory BLS2KIT8G3D1609DS1S00/ BLS2CP8G3D1609DS1S00
Bought 3 of these 2 x 8GB kits.  Will only run at 1066 in the 435T/9000, of course, but with good CL6 timings, I believe.
The large internet retailer that reminds one of a jungle has them cheap right now...

where do I find the tab or menu key,on a toshiba satellite L305-S5921,so I can run a memory test,on my laptop?

A:Memory test

Just before the Windows splash screen shows up, start rapidly tapping F8. This should lead you to the Safe Mode screen. You may have to, at that point, select F8 again to get to the memory diagnostic (it's at the bottom of the screen).

Another way is to launch Startup Repair from the Safe Mode screen (it'll say "Repair my computer") and then select the Memory Diagnostic from the list of advanced options.

I had a friend put some more memory sticks in my computer and I think one of them might be bad. I get BSOD's when I download certain things.
I keep getting errors like, PIN LIST Corrupt,IRQL NOT LESS or EQUAL,BAD POOL CALLER,Could anyone tell me how I can do a memory test to find out?

Is there a way to see if your memory is low.

A:test to see if you memory is low

You can do so via taskmanager and the performance tab.

I'd like to get some guidance on the best way to test my memory. I'm getting some BSODs and I understand memory is a frequent culprit in such cases. I found that Windows has a built-in memory diagnostic, Windows Memory Diagnostic Tool: is that a good way to test my memory? I've also heard about memtest86: is that a better tool?

My laptop is an ASUS K55N; I believe it has 8 GB of memory but can't check right this moment as the Windows Memory Diagnostics Tool is running.

A:Memory Test(s)

Download: Memtest86+ - Advanced Memory Diagnostic Tool
and put it in a USB stick to boot from. You should run the test for at least 4-6 passes unless errors occur before.

NOTE: select Autoinstall for USB Key to download

Just bought some more ram and everything I read online says to run a memory test after installation to make sure its running at optimal performance. How do I do that?? Thanks again,
Dan

A:Memory Test

I've seen memtest86 recommended quite often on these boards.

Anyone have a great "free" memory test that runs on XP
 

A:Memory Test

www.memtest.org

If you don`t have a floppy drive, there is an iso version that you can burn to cd, and then boot from that.

Let it run for at least seven passes.

See the pinned topic at the top of this forum, Freeware Replacements for Common Commercial Apps.
Look under hard drive and system utilities.
