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 (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

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.

More on the problem; all the keys still work if you type very slowly. Here's that last sentence typed at normal speed on my keyboard: orote proble;alte ks sllwork if yo tpe very slol. Right now I'm typing on a mac USB keyboard that's working fine. Also, the row of light-up controls above the keyboard (volume controls, eject, media control) no longer work. Not a big deal, I can live without those. The touch pad is also slow and jumpy, but I usually use a USB mouse.

Can anyone point me to a Vista driver for the keyboard that's in the laptop? Or help me solve this some other way? Windows 7 says that all the drivers are OK.

Type device manager in search. When you have the manager, click on all the arrows by items that you are interested in. If there is a new driver available you will see a yellow warning sticker. Is this the way you checked, already? If your drivers are ok, the obvious os left. Maybe time for a new keyboard.

Good Day. I have upgraded my old Dell Studio 540 from Win 7 to Win 10. Everything seems to be working fine except the keyboard no longer works. In Device Manager the keyboard is now "Unknown Device" and automated device driver update attempted to install Pluralinput Keyboard 0.8.4. The driver software encountered an error while attempting to install. Dell offers no assistance that I have been able to find. They did not test the Dell Studio 540 for Win 10.
Any suggestions for a keyboard driver? I can always purchase a Bluetooth keyboard.

4 year old Dell Studio XPS, running Windows 7 Professional.

Today, after no obvious changes (except a reboot) my Dell Studio XPS started blue-screening, with the error "Attempt to reset the display driver and recover from timeout failed". On reboot there were odd characters across the screen, Windows started to load, then BSOD again.

After much head-banging and time-wasting I read the BSOD message! I was able to boot into Safe Mode.

Uninstalling the driver for my ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4670 allows me to boot normally, but obviously with crap graphics.

I have tried reinstalling the drivers from the Dell site, and those from the AMD site, but both cause the same BSOD.

Are there other drivers I can use?

Hello Everyone!

Can someone help me out with the driver for the USB? All the USB controllers are okay under the Device Manger but the OS ain't detecting any of my USB's. Kindly help.

Many thanks!


A:USB driver required for Dell Studio 1558 - Windows 7 Home Premium

The ONLY device drivers for USB is the default Windows USB driver.

There is some other problem. What is not being detected? If you connect a device, such as a USB flash drive, it has to be disconnected with the "Safely Remove Hardware" function FIRST. If its just unplugged there is a very good chance when its connected the next time Windows Will not detect it. In these cases, connect whatever device is not being recognized, then go to the Device Manager and display the USB section. Usually there will be an "unknown" device listed and that will be the device that is not being detected. If this is the case, RIGHT click on the entry for the unknown device and then LEFT click "Uninstall". Physically disconnect the device, restart the PC and after Windows has started, connect the device and Windows should detect it as "new hardware" and reinstall it (and it will work).

Hi , Recently I installed Partition Magic on my Dell Studio 1555 Win 7(64-bit) for the sake of driver partition but it screwed my OS and altered partition tables,restarting was giving BSOD,

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.

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

I'm going to get a dell studio 15 laptop, but from all I've read, still not 100% confident of availability of windows xp drivers for this laptop? I want to dual boot just incase Im doing anything hefty on mem (or just don't like vista.) Also, does anyone know if the ati mobility hd3450 is xp compatible?


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.

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.

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.

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. 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.

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

Had to reinstall Windows Vista OS and of course lost everything. Reloaded the Drivers and utilities CD. Now cannot connect to my home network. ?This computer does not have a network adapter installed and configured?. Went to device manager and under the ?other devices? tab, everything under it has the yellow exclamation marks. Also the display is not right. Under the ?display adapters? tab the ?Standard VGA Graphics Adapter? also has the yellow exclamation mark. I have disabled and enabled all of them to no avail. Also checked the services and they seem to be started. Not sure exactly which ones should be started but all the ones about networking are running. Home network is working because I have other devices running from it just fine. I?m a little overwhelmed at this point. Also trying to sift through the archives at the same time. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

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.

My Dell Studio 1537 Just stopped booting to OS. I turn it on it goes to the dell logo then to choose an option Eg. Test Memory Test System Exit. I can't even get into safe mode. I went to test system and it goes to main menu Service tag 5SLGZIS With tags Express Test Extended Test Custom Test Symptom Tree. I went to system tree and selected Cannot boot OS and pressed run tests it comes up with error code 0F00.075D Msg_0-self-test Read error. I can't believe this has happened because my 2 TB hard Ext hard drive just crashed now my laptop has done the same can someone please help me.

It sounds like the hard drive has failed. Doing a Google search for the error code all say the hard drive has died.

BTW, you should edit your post and remove the service tag number. Dell considers this personal data (and is forbidden on the Dell users forum).

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.

Hello Eric1555, welcome to SF!

You have too many dumps to check... so for now I only did the last one and it is somewhat clear on a possible reason for you problems.

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.

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.

I recently found a Dell Studio 1558 running Windows 7 Home Premium in the trash, and it works fine. I would like to do a full system reset to restore the laptop to factory condition. How can this be done? I have already tried pressing F8 on the startup screen, but all it would do is stop the loading bar. Then I tried leaving it for a while, and after 20 minutes it had done nothing. Many retries later I am still where I started.

Just a note, the computer keeps telling me that I need to get "genuine Windows Software" and other similar messages.

A:Resetting my Dell Studio 1558

Windows is not properly activated on this computer. You will need to get a retail copy of Windows 7 that can be properly activated, and do a clean Windows install. Go to Dell's support website to get the Windows 7 drivers. If you can see a Windows activation key sticker on the case, you might be able to use this site:

Hello ..........

I have ONLY 2 choices - either buy Apple laptop or Dell laptop.I have been using Windows machines till today..... but ....I am more inclined towards Apple ......... I like Apple hardware and would like to run Windows 7 pro with XP mode along with Mac OS.

Are there any issues running W7 with XP mode on Macbook Pro 14? I want to install old version of Microsoft office on W7 since I will be using this laptop for presentations at conferences (mostly MS Excel and PowerPoint presentations and occasionally MS Word).

Also, Do I need to buy W7 with XP mode or just W7 will do the job? Does it matter whether I buy 32-bit or 64-bit W7 as far as old version of Microsoft office is concerned.

Apple is recommending VMware Fusion 3.1 or Parallels 6 for seamless transition between Mac OS and W7, which one shall I buy?

Thanks a LOT.

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.

Having a very weird issue with my Dell Studio 1555.

Started a couple of nights ago at first programs were stuttering and loading extremely slowly, after a restart suddenly all programs would hang and the computer would barely respond. Could not do a CTRL-ALT-DEL or access start menu. This would happen repeatedly after power downs.

The next morning I reinstalled Windows 7 and everything appeared to be fine. The computer operated perfectly fine all day long, however when I came to boot it up again this morning the same issue has occurred.

I haven't installed anything that could possibly be malicious, the only software I installed was Diablo III, Firefox, Skype, Audio and Video Card Drivers and Flash Player.

Does anyone have any suggestions as to what might be causing this and how to fix it?


A:Dell Studio 1555 Conking Out?

Do you have Windows Update configured to automatically install Optional Updates? It may be installing what it thinks is a better graphics or audio driver, which is in fact causing a problem. I have Optional Updates disabled on my computer for this reason.

A:Upgrading Dell Studio XPS 435MT

100 USD is very little to upgrade. If you change just video card for similar latest generation say SAPPHIRE HD 7750 1GB already $110, it would not require upgrading power supply. Which windows you have, and is it 32 bit or 64 bit? Your memory is very small, if you have 64 bit Windows, however processor is still good, yes it is slower than your laptop, but RAM (memory) also counts, and Operating System? However your laptop would be difficult to upgrade for video card, if at all! Integrated video card in laptop would not allow you to play any serious games without lag and video issues.
Here little comparison for Skyrim only.
XPS 435 with addition of only Sapphire 7750 would allow you to play at Very High/Extremely High, however your memory is on the low side, if you have 64 bit OS upgrading memory is a must.
Laptop the way it is - Low / Medium settings. So Do you like to play your games with good video quality, or you don't care?
Very good detailed information on PC requirements can be found - at Skyrim:System Requirements.
So, if it would be me, if your XPS has 64 bit windows - I would keep it, upgrade video card and memory, spend definitely more than $100. If you have only 32 bit, I would think about it, but is is still possible and most likely would be more enjoyable than laptop play quality.

I'm having a boot issue with my Dell Studio 15. It just hangs at the XP splash screen and the load bar continually scrolls. I was previously able to boot in Safe Mode, but when I tried running MBAM it froze up. I had not noticed any signs of Malware prior to the boot issue. Running the scan was just my initial response. But now when I attempt to boot in Safe Mode it just freezes altogether. Trying to figure out if the OS is corrupted or if there's something wrong with my HD. Unfortunately I have not been able to find my copy of XP to attempt to run recovery. Appreciate any help to trouble shoot issue and hopefully fix it.

In this situation you can try to do a system restore offline. Hopefully you have System Restore enabled and a Restore Point close to the current date.
Go here and follow the steps to creart a ERD disk. Boot the CD and do a System Restore. It will do a partial system restore and hopefully let you boot up.

I'm back So yesterday I decided to reboot my laptop it ususally stays on in and 'sleeps' - no particular reason and no issues prior to rebooting The laptop would not re-boot The Dell logo would come up and it would stop loading at about of the way I tried several times No beeps no errors I was unable to boot using F or use F or F to enter other options I tried removing the battery holding down the Dell will not boot... 1555 Studio power button for Dell Studio 1555 will not boot... seconds rebooting with battery only rebooting with power cord only battery removed rebooting holding down the Fn key Nothing worked So I took the back of the computer and pulled out the hard drive the memory modules and the Dell Studio 1555 will not boot... CMOS battery I re-installed each and made sure all were seated properly Then I tried re-booting again I got two beeps and only a black screen - Dell Studio 1555 will not boot... it never even made it to the Dell logo So then I tried a series of pulling one memory card at a time and trying it in one slot then the other slot and then both cards in the opposite slot - each time I would receive a two beep error or a beep error I also popped the CMOS battery a second time and now I have loosened the solder joint for that I purchased the laptop in so almost years old It is currently running Windows XP or was running it up until yesterday so the OS needs to be upgraded I have already replaced the hard drive once The DVD player has never worked from day one - not an issue for me but drove my kids crazy I was able to play CDs So with potentially bad memory modules or bad slots I am not sure if it is worth the money to invest in additional troubleshooting repairs So I have pulled the hard drive again to retrieve my files from it But I am unable to even access the hard drive using a BlackX or KingWin EZ Connect universal hard drive adapter Does this mean my hard drive is shot too Is there any way to retrieve the files from the hard drive How do I keep destroying hardware Help please TIA

Hi MISC3389,
Are you using an original Dell OEM Adapter? When you plug in the adapter to the system, does the adapter stay firm or does it fall off easily? Is the adapter frayed?
Something is causing the short circuit on the system and hence the issue.
Three components could be isolated to cause this issue: Adapter, DC port and motherboard.
So, try another adapter. If the issue is the same, then replace the dc port - you would need this part -
If the issue still persists, then the motherboard needs to be replaced. 
Presuming there is no warranty, then you could contact our team to get a quote for a paid service call -
Personally, I would suggest you to invest your money in a new machine than to repair this machine. 

Also, please click my DELL-username and write me a private conversation with the service tag and your contact details(Name and Email) for case records.

Let us know if you have any other queries.

today i tried connecting to my wireless router through my laptop, which has been working just fine since is a new laptop, to get internet access seems like the status is connected but it wont access the internet, my router network is strong and when i try connecting it just wont, but my second laptop will. what would be the problem? could it be my built in card?

edit: seems like im connected now but network is really slow and it constantly disconnects and connects.
could it be a virus instead?..

A:dell studio wireless problem

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.

When plugging the charger, white light flashes for 3-4 seconds and then disappear.

Really not sure what to do. I have tried taking out battery and booting. I have tried pressing the power button for 30 seconds.

Hi Guys,

I'm getting a dell studio, but want to dual boot with xp. The only thing is I've read its a heck of a lot easier when u have vista disc to repair bootloader. Do you know if the del studio comes with disc, or just HDD partition backup. I haven't seen a clear answer on this so far and if you don't get it its just a pain. You should always get a disc of the OS in my opinion.

I have used the media center software and also dl,d power dvd 9 to try to play a blu-ray movie. The movie will play for about 3 or 4 minutes and then the computer just shuts down the same as if it were suddenly unplugged or the power has gone off. I tried other forums and this seems to be a problem with these computers, but Dell is in no hurry to come up with a fix. The movie quality is good while it lasts.

Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

I know Dells usually don't allow for much customization or after market upgrades, but I vaguely remember one of the reasons I bought this particular model was because the description said that it allowed for that sort of thing.

So my question is can this Dell model be upgraded with say a better graphics card, power supply, etc?

The PC is 100% stock from Dell and I have made no changes what so ever to it after it shipped.

Dell Studio XPS 9100
Windos 7 64 bit
Intel Core i7 CPU; 960 @ 3.2GHz
12g RAM
AMD Radeon HD 6800 Series
I am unsure of the power supply. I want to say 400W?

Let me know if you need any more information. Thanks.

Recently I have been getting the annoying blue screen and crashes on my one month old Dell Studio 15.

Attached are the minidumps from windows. I have ran whocrashed and it has not identified the issue, other that it points to a driver.

I have not upgraded any drivers since getting the laptop new from dell, a little more than a month ago. I contacted their support and they were absolutely useless.

But I did run their diagnostics immediately after the last crash and it came through clean. I ran the memory diagnostic 5 times, and the complete system diagnostic once, including the extended drive test. All were clean and the tests overall ran for 3.5-4 hours.

I even ran the driver verifier yesterday and it did not detect anything. Since I do not know what do do with it, I turned it off for now.

Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks everyone

All three of your .dmp files are reporting the same cause... ntkrnlmp.exe.. As this is a core system file, we know that this is not the problem... Make sure that you have driver verifier enabled... this wlll stress the drivers, and should result in a BSOD... NOTE: It may take up to 36 hours to do, so be patient.. upload the new .dmp files when you get them...

This time again i enabled verifier, and waited till it crashed. Attaching the dump with verifier on. Some help to analyze this is much appreciated.

Is Windows 7 . . .
- x64 ?
- re installed using DVD provided by dell
- an OEM version

- What is the age of system (hardware)? 171 days
