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.)

Dell generally charges repairs for other than mainboard or screen replacement at a flat rate that probably exceeds what a local shop will charge, but you will find the Spare Parts line and out of warranty support here:
<<www.dell.com/learn/uk/en/ukbsdt1/services/special-warranty-services>>
They'll generally charge for a repair estimate and then apply the charge to the cost of the repair. In the US, a keyboard replacement is a flat $149 -- the keyboard itself is likely under $50 and is a user-replaceable part.

My XPS 17 keyboard had developed trouble with multiple keys sticking or not working reliably, and so I ordered and installed a new one.  Shame on me, but I hadn't looked closely and the new keyboard is not the US layout, but rather Spanish.  Now, although my primary language is English, I do speak and occasionally write in Spanish and I've decided that I will keep the keyboard rather than go through the trouble of getting the exact replacement.
My question now is how can I get the XPS to recognize the new layout?  I know about SharpKeys, but that is a Windows registry interface and I'd much prefer to have the new mapping available when I boot something else (I occasionally use Linux).  Is there a BIOS update or something similar that will do what I want?

Recently, Toshiba U840's motherboard is replaced for having AHCI function on SSD, but I find out that keyboard gets no Backlit at all, even through I press FN + Z.
Does anyone have any suggestions on how to enable it? or Do I need to bring back my notebook for services again?
Thanks in advance for any suggestions

I purchased my inspiron 1720 about four years ago and just replaced the keyboard with part (nsk-d8001).  The keyboard looks identical to my old one except that it has what I assume to be a backlight ribbon sticking out from underneath. Where does this ribbon go? I don't see an obvious location for it and my old keyboard didn't have this ribbon. Can the inspiron 1720 support a backlit keyboard?
Thanks!

Hi. I plan to purchase a 1 or 2TB internal HD for a Dell XPS L702X laptop and wondered what it uses. Is it using SATA 1, 2 or 3? Amazon lists all of these different options and I'd like to purchase the right drive for this machine. Thanks.

A:What is the HD interface for Dell L702X laptop?

The Dell manual, specifications, do not state what the SATA is.

Suggest you post on the Dell Community, Laptop forum. You should be able to get an answer there.

Just reset Windows 10 after a bad "update". When I reboot my laptop on the Dell Screen and in bios my keyboard is bright as can be.  As soon as it boots into Windows 10 the backlight disappears and won't come back on at all.  I tried the Windows Mobility settings and there is no option for the backlight. I tried the FN + F10 toggle and all of the other toggles possible but none are working.  I updated all of the drivers and still can't get the backlight to come back on.  Any help is appreciated.

Hi, I do a lot of typing at night time and the click of my keyoard's keys can be quite noticeable when there is pure silence. I have a Logitech K520 which isn't so loud but I would really love a keyboard that has the same type of keys as my Samsung laptop which are practically silent. Most laptops I've tried have similar keyboards in that the key doesn't travel far at all and there is no 'clicky' sounds either.

I have no idea what I would search for as I don't know what the style of keyboard is called. There are various names on the market, 'soft touch', 'quiet touch', 'low profile' etc etc but nothing that specifically identifies a laptop style.

I would just like a wireless laptop keyboard basically, even if it's the same size as a laptop keyboard but preferrably full sized.

Thanks very much for any advice

A:Buying new (gaming) laptop, need backlit keyboard

A 3 by 5 backlight would only cover about half of your keyboard, so if you go this route you might want to get two of them. Also there is a chance that the EL backlight will not fit behind the keyboard. If you are set on getting the laptop, I would do that before you buy all these parts for the backlight.

I need to buy a new laptop. Whilst ideally I would buy a Surface Book but that would cost me a leg and an arm. Between hp spectre x360 (with core i7 5th generation) and dell inspiron 13 (7353) (with core i7 6th generation), which is a better option?

A:Laptop Purchase - hp spectre x360 v dell inspiron 7353

I was doubting the same thing. I ruled out the Spectre because of the bad speakers. I really like to listen on my speakers. Not to mention, HP charges more for their accidental insurance. Then I considered the Inspiron 2-in-1 Special Edition, and I actually made a thread about it. The problem with it vs my Surface Pro 4, which I was trying to decide if I wanted a Dell, HP or Surface, was that those are PRIMARILY LAPTOPS, not TABLETS. I really love the portability of my Surface Pro 4. It works SO well as a tablet, so light, I can throw it in my bag and take it almost anywhere. A laptop option weighs more, is less comfortable in tablet mode and is much thicker. So I am deciding to stay with my Surface Pro 4.
But given the choice between the spectre and the dell... If money were no option, I'd probably go with the Spectre. But bang for the buck, I'd go with the Dell as it's 999 for the i7/8gb ram/256 SSD, and it's a very capable machine that should last years to come (as is the spectre). The problem with the dell is that... It's a little thicker and heavier than the Spectre. Here's a MobileTechReview that'll more or less show you the differences between them.
Enjoy!

Not sure of the model but usually the ribbon is help in place by a clip design might be like this link http://www.laptopsolutions.plc.uk/k...structions__keyboard_removal_instructions.htm

or may be a flatter design. I think the answer is to carefully look at it check how its being held in place and gently unprise the connector clip.

Can't see your specific model listed but perhaps this "how to disassemble Toshiba laptops" page might be of use? There are a few other similar websites out there judging by the Google search results I got. Chances are you may want to buy a broken laptop on eBay and use it for spare parts as they are often sold. Unless you can get a repair done through an authorised Toshiba repair centre or whatever?

Hello,
some time ago, i noticed problem with left hinge, which destroyed front trim LCD Bezel, not sure yet about back lid. Now i am searching for replacement to front trim and Back cover Lid with hinges since i am out of warranty already since march.
I found replacements, but... cover seems to be for dell xps with 3D function, and my does not have it. Question is: will this back cover lid still be good for my DELL without 3D? I am quite desperate to change it, cause i cannot close my lid anymore in state it is now and i must order it from quite far away, since it's hard to get it in my country.

Hi guys
I own a XPS L702X laptop purchased in 2011. Laptop has driver support from Dell for Win 7 and Win 8.
But windows 8 drivers aren't working with windows 8.1 and i don't think Dell is in the mood to provide drivers for a laptop which is already 2+ years old.
So i had to collect drivers by myself. I have already got most of the native drivers from Intel/nVidia/Realtek websites.
But not able to find the Quickset software. Currently using the one which was released for windows 8, and it gives error when i open the windows mobility center. And after installing, it doesn't remove the "Unknown Device" icon from device manager like it used to do in windows 8 .
Also need "ST Micro Screen Detection Sensor" driver. If i install the old windows 8 driver, it says incompatible with this version of windows.

Have you tried installing the non 8.1 drivers in a compatibility mode?

I have an old wireless device (for my recording studio) and the last drivers that were made, before the company went out of business, were for Vista. In both Win 7 64 bit and Win 8/8.1 I have to install the device in Vista compatibility mode, but it works fine after the install.

My question may sound really stupid but if I bought a replacement keyboard of a different model would it work? There are some very similar models such as A300D-005 for much cheaper than mine. What would happen if I were to use it?

Thank you,

Brandon.
 

A:Laptop keyboard replacement (stupid question)

Your best bet is to dig around on Toshiba forums or just on the net in general. You'll often find that all models in a range will share many of the same parts. See if you can find a part number for the keyboard either from a label or part number on the keyboard or the manual/toshiba website. You'll probably be able to use a keyboard from any Toshiba of that age/range but best double checking first.

Hi BSOD gurus,

Up until now, i've just closed the screen, and walked away and have had no problems. Now in order to avoid the BSOD, i have to shut down the computer after each use.

In trying to figure out what's causing the BSOD, i've noticed two instances. One is that when i wake it up from idle/sleep, it will already have the BSOD. Another one i've noticed is that when i wake it up, it Win7 prompts me to login with my password, and then goes to BSOD.

Hi, It is much better and cheaper to buy this option now because backlit keyboard alone won't work, you need a motherboard which have ports for you to connect those lights. Buy this option now may cost you say $50, replace it later may cost you ten times or more and in many cases not-workable. Regards.

RAM speed is dependant upon the motherboard chipset and cpu. But you aren't likely to notice a difference between those two.

HDD/SSD - depends on how much space that you need for storage. If the laptop supports two HDD's, then simply get a smaller SSD for the primary drive and you can add a second HDD later. Otherwise, for the cost involved, I would simply keep the standard HDD.

There is no reason to avoid nVidia.

I have had nothing but issues with Windows 10 on my work and personal laptop. This post is about my personal laptop the Dell XPS L702X. Since upgrading my screen flickers and will go to an unreadable state and I have to wait for it to change back to its normal view. Has anyone found a fix for monitor issues. I've tried Microsoft chat support but they want me to pay and I refuse because my computer was fine until I upgraded. I've also googled with no fixes that work.

I bought a Dell l702x in January and a couple months later installed a SSD and did a clean install of Windows. Since then I have been getting frequent BSODs when playing audio or video. Most of the crashes seem to be with either the Nvidia gt 555m driver or the Intel Graphics 3000 driver.

I am uploading all the BSOD crash information.

I would appreciate any help anybody could give with why I am getting these Blue Screens and what I need to do to fix the problem.

Thanks,
Brandon

A:Dell l702x BSOD when playing audio or video

Welcome

Are you using the NVIDIA or Intel VGA? Seems like they are conflicting with each other.

Normally when there's an add-in graphics card, BIOS will stop using the integrated one.
try this:- Restart the laptop and press the keys to go to BIOS menu (usually F2, depends on manufacturer)
- Check the settings for the graphics card
- Make sure you select the option that says: disable integrated one if the add-in present

Here is a really baffling one for you I got my brand new Dell XPS L X laptop with the following specs about weeks ago Intel Core i - L702x on Dell GT555M Failure XPS Power NVIDIA / QM GHz GB RAM NVIDIA GT m GB Dedicated Memory Intel HD Graphics GB Shared Memory Windows Home Premium -Bit Let me just quickly explain to anyone that s confused by the dual graphics Dell XPS s with dedicated graphics cards effectivley run cards the integrated Intel HD graphics with it s shared video memory shared with RAM AND it runs the dedicated NVIDIA GT m For windows it uses the Intel NVIDIA GT555M / Power Failure on Dell XPS L702x HD graphics but when I run a game it knows to use the NVIDIA card Now for the problem About one day after installing TomTom Home software for updating a sat nav device from your pc it failed to boot - it loads the window screen then goes into windows but crashes to a black screen before the desktop ever appears so i m guessing it s failing explorer exe After a few hard reboots it eventually loaded windows but after a short while it will crash a program in a strange way - take for example IE I can open IE and go onto a website like facebook then sometimes if i open a new window IE fails to respond you need to shut the process down in task manager to stop it There s the other trouble using ctrl alt del takes ages then pressing open task manager crashes the laptop to a black screen I uninstalled the tom tom sofware and no change I ve booted it into safe mode with no problems whatsoever After running virus scans and scandisk i ruled out virus or hard drive failure Eventually I tried uninstalling the NVIDIA drivers - and it works fine So now I have got to the stage of having the lasted NVIDIA drivers reinstalled but disabling the card from the device manager so it is only using the Intel HD graphics It works fine like that no crashes or anything If I enable it it works fine for a bit but will eventually crash Just to point out when it is working I can play GTA IV in almost highest graphics with no lag - so surely it can t be a burnt out GPU on the NVIDIA card In addition two times during all this mess up it crashed to BSOD with something about DRIVER STATE POWER FAILURE So any ideas Is this a battery issue Power issue Graphics Card failing I m really really stumped I apologise for the length of this post but I really did need to explain everying nbsp

A:Intermittent internet problems on Win7, Dell XPS L702x

Hi Yaminatori,
According to Google a 101 error is caused when the Google Chrome installer is unable to create a temporary directory on your computer during the installation process.
Due to temporary files being mentioned I would check that there is enough space on your computer (file clean-up) - I would also check that your SWAP file is large enough :-)

You could also try this - Turn Off DNS Prefetching in Google Chrome to Fix Resolving Host and Cannot Load Page Error ? My Digital Life

It's a long shot but it might just solve the problem!

I need to get a copy of a replacement CD (or DVD whichever it is) for Windows Vista Business. It is a legitimate copy on my computer but I cannot find the CD. I have looked on Microsoft's web site to try to find a contact number. Does anyone know the correct department or phone number or any other contact information so that I can purchase a replacement disk?

This is not pre-installed software and so I cannot contact the computer's manufacturer. It was purchased separately for a MacBook. I need the CD in order for me to start using the program Parallels. It checks to be sure that Mac OS X is legitimate and that Windows is legitimate before installing Parallels. The MacBook came with Mac installed on it and the Windows Vista Business was purchased separately and installed.

Thank you,
Linda

A:Purchase or get copy of replacement CD

Hello Linda, and welcome to Vista Forums.

You can order a replacement CD/DVD from Microsoft from the link below for just S&H.

If you have a friend that has Vista Business to, then you can copy their DVD to use with your product key number also.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

My laptop won't boot up and DVD/CD drive won't work. After several dead ends (trying to boot from USB and buying external cable to connect laptop drive to desktop (worked once then failed - foolishly didn't get data off straight away!). Also discovering that failure of DVD/cd drive is very common in this dell laptop decided best option is to buy cheap DVD/cd drive to replace one in laptop. The one currently in is a Sony model DW-D56A-DS.Can anyone tell me if I have to buy an exact replacement. Eg I've seen ones that start with DW-D56A then have 2 different letters at end. Would a different manufacturer one work - any suggestions? From what I've read I'm not sure a new CD drive would last long in this model so the cheaper the better and I'II save up for a new laptop! Any help much appreciated

Hello everyone,
have recently been experiencing some issues with the computer freezing momentarily (mostly for not even a second)...
the issue first appeared a while after i installed GTA SA from steam (came with the pre order for GTA V) and first occured in game.
 
It affects the whole computer, although shortlived it's annoying as hell as you can imagine beacause every few minutes it does the same....
 
Appears to affect the whole computer not only video or audio playback (which i first thought was the case).
 
Ran combofix, etc... because i thought it was possibly a virus/malware, but now i'm doubting if it is maybe hardware related? (if that's possible)
 
Atm i'm completely at a loss what to do next, so any help is welcome!!!

A:Freezing issues Dell xps l702x popped up after installing GTA SA from steam

Since you problem start after installing the GTA SA, I would suggest uninstalling it to see if this is causing the problem.

Bass Boost Configuration not present in the properties of my Speaker/Sound Settings. Using the Category View in the Control Panel, I left click Hardware and Sound, and then Sound. I then right click on Speakers and select Properties. Following that, I go to the Enhancements tab, for my speaker settings. There isn't a Bass Boost option, available. Does this mean I cannot have my speakers on my new PC producing quality sound? This is dells latest model, and I contacted them only to have them tell me that the driver I currently have is the official driver, and that I would have to"Seek a third party driver, for your desired enhancements." I don't have the slightest idea where to look and I don't want to retrieve any malicious virus' from any "third party" websites. Any advice?

A:backlit keyboard

No, sorry none of the keyboards offered in that model series is backlit which means the motherboard has no place to connect a wire to light a backlight and none of the keyboards has the backlight cable/wire in any event. There are quite a few ingenious aftermarket products that will provide a light on the keyboard for night work.

Hello,  I changed the OS on my Envy 15-j007cl to Windows 7 (64bit).  I've gotten everything to work save two issues: 1)  It's missing one driver (Validity Fingerprint Sensor); USB\VID_138A&PID_0050&REV_0060.  I've downloaded the driver from links I've found here, but it still shows as missing.  The fingerprint reader still doesn't work, but I'm not sure if this OS supports the fingeprint reader.  Does anyone know if the fingerprint reader is supported with Win 7? 2)  The keyboard backlighting no longer works.  This is actually more of an issue to me than the fingerprint reader.  Can someone tell me if this is due to a missing driver or something else? Thank you

 Hi @gruhls, Welcome to the HP Forums! I read your post on the HP Support Forums and wanted to reach out to you. With downgrading your HP ENVY 15-j007cl Notebook you might need to change the BIOS. I recommend to restore the BIOS defaults.You could restore the BIOS with this document selecting the reloading the BIOS default settings. That way it will look at the Hardware installed on the Notebook. You could try the Download here, under the Software-Security, as it is for Windows 7 and should work fine. Please let me know if this information helps you resolve the issue by marking this post as Accept as Solution, this will help others easily find the information they may be looking for.  Also, clicking the Thumbs up below is a great way to say thanks!    Thanks.

I'm looking around for backlit keyboards, but I don't want anything too expensive. It would also be nice to have multimedia keys if possible. Also, if there's any good mice as well. I'd just like to look around because I'm thinking about changing mine. I don't have too much to spend so good deals would be nice.

How much are you looking to spend? Do you want a Mechanical keyboard, or a membrane keyboard?
