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.)

Hello TechSpot Community I am stuck with a slow GT and am going to Single high-end cards slot go for a huge computer upgrade after saving up some more My i is going to be replaced with an i k and the stock Single slot high-end cards cooler may be replaced by watercooling if I have a spare few hundred bucks Now I am a fan of single slot cooling When I saw the EVGA HydroCopper GTX and I was just like wow how nice would one of those be But I will never buy an Nvidia card at the moment as they use power overheat and are expensive especially the water cooled ones However the new HD series which I am hoping will smoke the GTX not literally - I am not buying a PCI-E Barbeque are a more likely candidate for my new computer The problem is that the current flagship from ATi soon to be AMD the HD has the two DL-DVI s stacked on top of each other so even if watercooled it will still take up two slots The Radeon HD Eyefinity does not have this problem but I can t find any sources of single-slot faceplates Are there any available or do I have to get it cut in half myself Before anyone asks I am not thinking of getting the more expensive Eyefinity Edition just for the sake of single slotness I also want the extra monitor outputs for various projects but it is not completely necessary Should I buy the current Eyefinity HD or wait to see if the standard HD has the same problem or buy the HD Eyefinity card Of course I could go for a dual GPU but I have survived with a GT for long enough and will noot need that power I try not to let my computer take over my life but cannot live with it being this slow If I buy a beast now I shouldn t have to worry for at least three years nbsp

I am trying to buy some RAM for a Dell Inspiron 1100 Laptop. On the crucial website it says that each slot shouldn't exceed 512 MB of RAM. It says there is only a maximum of 1 GB of RAM for this system. I wanted to get 1 GB of Crucial RAM for $32. The only issue is that the RAM comes in a 1GB Module. If I was to buy two 512 MB Modules the price wold be around $15-20 more expensive. Does it really matter if I put in a larger RAM module than what Crucial says the system should use. Any Thoughts would be appreciated.

I have Dell 1100 laptop that is running Windows Xp Home.

I use a D-Link G650 card to connect to the Internet. Everything was fine until yesterday.

It appears that my card is not responding--the lights on it don't come on when the PC boots up and even when the boot process is done.

My system tray shows the remark "D-link card not found" and I have no connectivity. I rebotted the machine with the same problem. I haven't reset the D-Link 624 router that I use to connect.

I tried another card in the laptop and I got the same results--no lights on the PC card and no connectivity.

Please advise. I hope it's not the actual PC slot on the laptop sice I don't have a clue about how to repair/replace it??? Is it part of the mobo on the Dell 1100??

Anybody have an idea or clue..
Please advise.
Thanks. Tony

OK, so I figured I'd try upgrading the RAM before I threw away my old Toshiba A85. I opened the panel on the back and the RAM slot was empty. There's only one, and nothing was in it. It was incredibly slow and completely incapable of multitasking, but I'm pretty sure it wouldn't have run at all without any RAM.

So I put the new RAM in and it works great, better than new. The question is, can a computer run without RAM? If not, is there RAM built in somewhere else?

I noticed that the user guide for the m6-p113dx indicates there's an empty m.2 slot on this motherboard. However, when I opened it, I didnt see this slot anywhere on the board. Is the user guide mistaken, and if not, where is this extra slot located at?

I am currently running a system comprising of an Abit KG7 motherboard and Athlon 1.6xp cpu. The motherboard is populated with 1gb of DDR ram in 4 x 256mb modules. Operating system WinXP pro. Everything has been fine until recently whereby I have experienced several problems with system failing to write to various memory addresses. Bios and Win system report 1gb ram installed but Belarc Advisor and Crucials online scan report that slot 4 is empty and only 768mb ram installed. I have tried reseating and interchanging modules but to no avail. Any thoughts or ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Hey Guys, I recently joined these forums due to a error BSOD which I received great help with, thing is running MemtestCL, Memtest86+ and Windows Memory Diagnostics, I kept getting "Hardware Problem Detected".

So one by one I tried the Modules in all 4 DIMM Slots and 2 sticks together A1,A2,B1,B2 slots but returned Errors, tried this on all 4, and found one Module was causing the error message.

I tried the remaining 3 Modules in all the slots with no error at all, my question is, does this sound like a problem with the Module itself? Or the Motherboard??

A:Bad Module or Bad DIMM Slot? Corsair Vengeance 16GB

Module. If all the other sticks worked in every slot, its the ram. Were it the mobo slot, known good sticks would test bad in the mis-behaving mobo slot.

A:Question about PCI-e slot below dual slot video card

My opinion ...

Yes, setting up like that will have an impact. The air flow to your GPU will be restricted so it will more than likely run hotter than it did. It may still stay withing recommended specs, but it will run hotter.

The motherboard has onboard sound (RealtekŪ ALC892 8-Channel High Definition Audio CODEC ), any particular reason why you don't use that? Onboard sound is perfectly good for gaming and the like now, its not like older machines where you needed a dedicated card for decent quality. In my opinion, you only need a dedicated card if you are doing a lot of detailed audio work (mixing, remastering and other specific audio work). This would totally remove the issue.

Yes. Here is the Service Manual: Manual It can take up to 16 gigs (2 x 8 gigs) of memory. Access to the memory slots is not easy and technically is only supposed to be done by an authorized technician but is doable if you are careful.

i have had trouble with my computer after cleaning it (can of compressed air) it would boot to log in screen then go black on the monitor or it would blue screen and restart.

after figuring out it was a RAM problem i tried another stick of RAM but same problem so i guess its the actual slot it goes into, i only have 2 on my motherboard lucky one of them is working still.

has anyone had this problem or know of a way to fix it, i am wondering if some of the canned air/gas became a liquid from spraying to close and got in it.

any help would be appreciated thanks.

Hi NukesGoBoom,

I have seen a similar problem, but it was all USB ports that weren't working.

First, check the BIOS to make sure all USB ports are enabled, which they probably are.

Are all drivers installed and up to date? Do any yellow question marks or exclamation points show up in Device Manager?

i need to know which know which graphic card will fit for my computer. Ie i want to know which type: DDR ,DDR1 or ddr2 i bought my computer in 2007, but thats not enough to tell.
so please let me know how do i know which pci slot i have?

A:which graphic card slot do i require for my PCI slot

The type of memory doesn't matter, its the type of interface the computer supports among a few other things to watch for.

You likely have a PCI-Express slot, as long as it a x16 slot it doesn't really matter if its a version 1.1 or 2.0 slot.

Is this for your Dell or another computer? Whats you budget and what needs do you have for the video card?

I am writing about printing on an HP 1410 All-In-One. The problem is this.
I have a Word 2003 .doc. I then insert a jpg from a file. I locate it in the document where I want it and size it accordingly. For example: let's say the picture is 2" x 3" on the printed page. The document appears correctly in the program and in print preview.
However, when the page is printed, the jpg is printed twice, one over top of the other. Note: they are not superimposed. However, there are two images (2" x 1.5") and the perspective is "squashed."
Any suggestions if this is a Word 2003 problem, an OS problem (Windows 2000 Pro), or a printer problem?
Thanks for your help.

A:can I add a AGP slot or PCI slot to a comp that doesnt have one?

You can't add a slot to a motherboard.

How old is this computer that it doesn't have a PCI slot? Those have been around for quite a while. Are you sure it doesn't have one? Even AGP is not new technology.

EDIT: After seeing your other thread, are you asking if you can purchase an AGP or PCI video card? That's a totally different question, and the answer would be yes depending on which slot your motherboard has. How much it costs depends on what you plan to use the computer for. A simple one is cheap, and high-end gaming cards can get expensive.

I purchased an Inspiron 11 3147 with what appears to have a non K-Slot security slot. However I have been unable to find out what kind of slot it is. Along with the laptop I bought a Kensington security cable (Dell part number A5883764). The bar on the cable is too wide to fit into the slot on the notebook. The cable fits fine into my other devices with a k-slot. The only explanation I can come up with is that Dell just didn't make the slot big enough, which I also find hard to believe.
I opened a case with Dell, but the support tech was not able to find a compatible security cable and advised that I contact Kensington.
Attached is a picture showing the slot and cable.
Has anyone else had similar problems?

A:Inspiron 11 3000 series Security Slot

I recently received my Dell Inspiron 13 7000 and I had the same problem with my Kensington combination lock.
Researching information in the web, it looks like Dell changed the security slot to a shorter one (Noble security Wedge) for some Tablets, Ultrabooks (including Dell XPS 12) and Inspiron 14 (7437) - 7000. There is not information for Dell Inspiron 11 3000 or 13 7000 series but as I can see in some pictures the size of the slot is the same that the Inspiron 14 7000.
The new slot is using Noble security Wedge (Manufacturer Part# : TZ08 | Dell Part# : A6451164) and the link to buy it in Dell store this special security cable is:
I will buy this cable hoping it fits my Dell 13 7000.

I've seen this problem reported for other Dell machines for a year now, since Windows 10 came out, but not for my model.
Since installing Windows 10, I can't use my SD card slot to write to, format, etc. a microSD card with adaptor. I can see the drive, read the card, and transfer files from it, but when I try to write I get an error message that the disk is write protected. It isn't. The exact same cards and adaptors work fine in my son's computer, and the cards work fine in my phone.
I just updated all my drivers and it still isn't working. When will Dell finally provide a fix for this? I can't even find any indication that they're working on it.

Hey guys,

I updated the BIOS and all the drivers. Please advice, thank you in advance

Is Windows 7 . . .
- x86 (32-bit) or x64 - x64
- the original installed OS on the system? OpenDos
- an OEM or full retail version? Full retail
- What is the age of system (hardware)? brand new computer, bought a week ago
- What is the age of OS installation (have you re-installed the OS?) Did a fresh install right after I bought it.

These were all caused by your video subsystem. Probably the driver, perhaps heat, or the card itself.

I would start with the driver since it is the most frequent thing to fail

When upgrading your graphic driver you MUST remove all traces of the current driver. In order to do that we recommend using Guru3D - Driver Sweeper

When it is removed then download and install the fresh copy.

the laptop is about to complete boot, i.e. when desktop icons appear, I suspect
that its related to the wireless lan I am uisng which is alfa wireless lan model AWUS036H , I suspect it because the blue screen occurs
when the wirelsss lan utility starts to laod, i.e. it starts opening its interface
and showing signal strength of connection to my internet provider.
I updated the driver for this lan from company site and even installed updates of windows 7 but the problem still occur. it doesnt occur at fixed frequency,
sometimes it doesnt occur for many days, sometimes it occur 2 or 3 times daily.

Hi everyone,
My PCH stays hot most of the time. For example when I play GRID for 30 minutes the temperature of the PCH gets up to 75C and when I quit the game it cools down hardly even when my laptop cooler is on.It blows cold air but stays hot. I had the same problem with the CPU two weeks ago but somehow it works normally now. Here are my specs:
CPU - Intel Core i5 2.9Ghz
Video Card - ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5650 1GB
The laptop has no warranty since I opened it to check if the vent was clean.
All help would be appreciated

Currently there are NO compatible Windows 10 drivers available for this particular model however you will need to check if you can install the Windows 7 drivers in compatibility mode in Windows 10.
Also, there will be no Windows 10 drivers as these model did not come with Windows 8 or 8.1 driver. Please check for the Windows 10 driver availability after the Windows 10 release.

I'm planning to upgrade my Dell Inspiron N5010 RAM from current 3GB(2+1) to 6 GB(2+4).
I heard that some Dell Inspiron Laptops require same RAM to be present in both slots so that the O.S can detect the installed RAM, else only one slot will be detected( ex: 4GB RAM (Usable 3GB)).
So, can I go ahead with having a 2GB RAM in one slot and 4GB RAM in another?
So, can you suggest me any best brand(verified by Dell) to purchase the RAM and also the recommended frequency it should be supporting?

Many thanks in advance!!!

A:RAM upgrade on Dell Inspiron N5010

Hi venkat_bollineni,
This system model supports a maximum of 8GB memory. Memory modules must be installed as a perfectly matched pair to take advantage of the dual-channel memory bus. If not a matched pair, the system's memory bus operates in a single-channel configuration. Basically, when both DIMM connectors are populated, the system has optimum dual-channel performance unless channels A and B have different amounts of memory.

My N5010 Will not power on with or without the battery installed. The power button blinks white every four seconds.  The AC adapter is working fine.  I have removed the battery, unplugged the AC adapter, and held down the power on switch for 30 seconds without success. I have removed and reinstalled components such as HDD, memory, etc. without success. I have installed a new DC Jack Board WXHDY and it still will not power on.
Can anyone suggest anything else to try?

Earlier today the laptop was overheating and i blew into the fan, then it stopped spinning. Now i can't access the computer because it shuts down when i turn it on. What do i do?

A:Dell inspiron 15R (N5010) fan problems

Hi Anzel,

How long does the laptop take before it shuts itself down?

If it takes a while, you may follow the steps listed below:
1. Please ensure that the vents of the system are clean and allow free circulation of air inside the system. You may use a can of compressed air to clean the vents. Before you clean the air vents of system:

- Turn off the System
- Unplug the AC Adapter
- Unplug all external peripherals
- Remove the Battery
- Check the vents on the computer to see if they are covered with dust and not allowing heat and air to pass through. See example in the image below:

-Use Compressed Air to blow the dust out of the vents
Note: Do not use your mouth to blow the Dust out of a Laptop. If using a can of compressed air use the can according to the directions on the side of the can as you can cause damage to the computer if used incorrectly

2. If the previous step does not resolve the issue, update the BIOS to latest version.
Note: Before flashing the BIOS please check the following: Battery should have 10% or greater charge; Adapter should be connected; No external devices should be connected; All other programs should be closed and documents saved

Link to download the latest BIOS for Inspiron N5010: Driver Details | Dell United States

3. If the issue still persists, check the CPU usage of your computer (please ensure you check it when system fan is making noise); check this 'web article' if needed: How to use and troubleshoot issues with Windows Task Manager

4. If you still experience issues, keep the system in 'BIOS environment' for some time to check if it still 'shuts down'. To enter BIOS, power on the laptop and repeatedly tap 'F2 key' when 'Dell splash screen' appears

5. If the system shuts down in the 'BIOS environment' also, please run the 'Hardware Diagnostics' to check for the 'Hardware functionality':
- Capture error(s) if any

Hope this helps. Do reply if you have any further questions; would be glad to assist.

It's rly funny because dell leave users of older laptops because they no have profits for that. The warranty is over so bye :) Someone can help me?

A:Dell inspiron 15R n5010 no sound, Windows 10

Warning to anyone reading this thread:
Make sure you know your model name before installing a driver!
The subject of this thread is "Dell inspiron 15R n5010 no sound, Windows 10". The problem is that there is no model with that exact name. There is an Inspiron 15 N5010, and an Inspiron 15R N5110.
They are different models and use different drivers. In other words, the audio driver for the N5010 is not meant for the N5110, and vice versa.
To complicate matters, somebody named aimeehuang posted in this thread and put in a link named "dell 15r n5010 drivers download". But if you click on the link it goes to a page for Inspiron 15R N5110.The person named "aimeehuang" is not a regular on this discussion board and probably got the model names confused.
Check your model name. If you have an Inspiron 15 N5010, use the IDT R280657 audio driver. It is meant for Win7, so install it into Win10 using compatibility mode (instructions below).
If you have an Inspiron 15R N5110, use the IDT audio driver. It is meant for Windows 8. It might install without a problem into Win10, but if there is a problem, install it using compatibility mode (instructions below).
1. Download and save the audio driver to your desktop or any convenient location on the hard drive..2. Double click on the new folder to extract (unzip) the driver files.3. The extractor wizard will create a new folder for the driver files. It will be at "c:\dell\drivers\xxxxxx". Write down the exact location that the wizard creates. 4. If the driver begins to install automatically, halt (cancel) the installation.5. Browse to the driver files on the hard drive (the location you wrote down).6. Find the "setup.exe" file.7. Right click on setup.exe to open the context menu.8. Select the Properties.9. Select the Compatibility tab.10. Check the box "run this program in compatibility mode for"... Win7 (or Win8 if you are installing the Win8 driver for the N5110).

Hello, I have an inspiron N5010 laptop (out of warranty), which was working fine all these years.
Unfortunately, yesterday when I tried to turn it on, the system initiated normaly but the screen remained blank and then it started beeping 8 times every 3-5 seconds. According to what I found online, 8 beeps indicate an LCD failure. When I tried to connect it to a TV monitor via HDMI cable nothing came up, the monitor detected the connected device but it had no signal. Since the screen is blank, I cannot run the diagnostics neither enter the BIOS setup. In case of an LCD failure I could replace it by myself, but I cannot be sure if that is the problem. Could you please tell me what can I do to distinguish if it is LCD or GPU failure?I have to mention that the laptop was suffering from overheating, hence I used a cooler to reduce the temperature.

Sometimes malware will keep Task Manager from opening using Ctrl+Alt+Del. Go to c:\windows\system32 and copy taskmgr.exe to the desktop. Rename taskmgr.exe to something else like fix.exe and double click it. If Task Manager opens then the computer may be infected.

My desktop is around 40 degrees when stressed, so I was shocked originally by those temperatures. I did some digging, and laptop temperatures are typically a lot higher, around 70 degrees when stressed
Considering that this is an i7 as well, I would consider this a fairly normal temperature, just make sure you aren't obstructing any ventilation grills.

I have Dell Inspiron N5010 with GPU overheating issue, fan always working at highest speed but GPU temperature did not decrease bellow 67C and computer shut down when playing games.
Already replaced CPU thermal paste and CPU temperature dropped from 88C to 52C but GPU temperature did not drop so I want to replace thermal pad because it looks like that thermal pad damaged and there is a gap between GPU and thermal pad which attached to heat sink.
online sellers have different thermal pads thickness and they range from 0.5 mm, 1 mm, 1.5mm, 2mm to 2.5mm  
Form what I understood if thermal pad too thick it wont help to reduce GPU temperature so please can you advice me which thermal pad should I use for Dell inspiron n5010, mother board type CN-052F31, dg15 mb 48.4hh01.011 bios, AIT HD 1GB GPU.
Thank you very much

Whether I am playing a game or just browsing the internet my laptop will randomly lock for 1-2 min and I can't do anything until it un-locks. Try to get into task manager or do anything else and they will pop up only after the computer un-locks. I have run spyware and other programs to see what might be causing it to no avail. Hope there is someone who can help me with my issues.

Dear Community,
Do you guy knew if Dell E7250 is able to install ADDITIONAL ssd in M.2 Expansion Slots?
In the specification it's show there are free M.2 slot for WWAN or SSD.

If it's support what SSD M.2 model should i but 2242?

A:Dell E7250 SSD Expansion Slot

The additional slot referenced is in the E-dock expansion adapter - NOT the system.  The system takes only one internal M.2 drive.
If you have (or purchase) the E-dock port adapter, you'll have the additional M.2 slot.

Hello window7Delluser and welcome to Seven Forums.

It wouldn't hurt to run chkdsk C: /F /R

Disk Check

If problems still exist you could run a separate System File Checker scan from an elevated command prompt. If problems are found run the scan 3 times rebooting in between each scan. You could also try running the Startup Repair again. It also should be run at least 3 times if problems are found.

SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

Startup Repair

It's also possible that the hard drive has some physical problems. You may want to run a separate hard drive diagnostics check. A few of them include;

Hard Drive Diagnostic Procedure

SeaTools | Seagate (click on downloads tab and select SeaTools for Windows option.)

Or you could go directly to the hard drive manufcturer's website and look for a diagnostic tool specifically for your drive.

I had the same problem with my dell inspiron 5010. The problem is most likely with the connector on the back of the laptop. There are 3 type of connectors, +19.5v, ground and sense.
I resolved it by bending the pins towards outside leaving the center pin (sense) free.

Hello, I am using Access 2000 and have created a database with a command button that opens up a report via a macro. I would like to know how to open up single reports instead of pushing a button that brings up every report, I've been able to open up reports that are based off of queries, queries that have paramenters that need to be inputted in order to bring up single unique records, but I would like to be able to just create a button that brings just that particular unique record-report off of that particular unique record on that form. Meaning that for a record that had just been inputted for John Doe on a form, I would like to know how to create a button on that form to pull up John Doe's single report without having to build a query that asks for a parameter. Is there anyway to do this?

A:Access-Printing a single report off of a single record from an Access database form

You will have to adapt this to your own form setup; but it's just using the Where line of the OpenReport macro action.

If on the form MyFormName you have two controls called txtFirstNm and txtLastNm, and in the query underlying the report you have two fields called FirstNm and LastNm, you would put into the Where line of the OpenReport action:

[FirstNm]=[Forms]![MyFormName]![txtFirstNm] And [LastNm]=[Forms]![MyFormName]![txtLastNm]
Hope that helps.

My single-surface touchpad is exasperating and I would never buy this model if I knew Much of the time a right-click behaves simply as a left click For instance a Single-surface 5555 Touchpad right-clicking, with Inspiron temperamental multiple hits Google search page disappears and becomes simply the one selection I d intended to quot open in new tab quot from the customary drop-open submenu which fails to appear upon right-clicking a hit Also right-clicking a highlighted block of text often simply removes the highlighting instead of Single-surface Touchpad temperamental with right-clicking, Inspiron 5555 providing a drop-open submenu for quot copy quot or quot cut quot or the like nbsp I m trying to get in the habit of substituting two-finger taps for right clicks but that choice is unreliable and fails rather often Dell ought to be all over this but improved drivers haven t been offered nbsp Short of resigning myself to using an external mouse on a table top not exactly why we wanted a laptop with touchpad in the first place is there anything I can do to improve this temperamental touchpad s performance nbsp I ve done my best with settings nothing corrects the performance problem described here

Its been an issue with me and my friend having i5 CPU M 450 @2.40 GHz
Whenever i play music in, usually foobar2000/winamp/mediamonkey the computers lags a lot. it does not freeze completely, but it becomes unbearably slow.

Is this a common issue ? is there any solution ?

i usually "set affinity" of the music player from the task manager to "cpu 3" only, and the other program running to the remaining cpu, and the performance usually gets better, but i cant do this with chrome because there are many "chrome.exe" in the task manager.

Often caused by a driver. Please download this latency checker to test. DPC Latency Checker

Also check in event viewer for sound related things, app hang, or app crash.

There are several ways to find what the problem is. The best is to go into event viewer (type eventvwr in search). Event viewer (local) and look for errors listed in the last day, week, etc. Then go to the windows log>application tab. Finally the windows Logs>system tabs.

You want to look for all errors (they have red in the left column ).

When you find them you want to look for critical errors that say app hang, app crash, or anything that relates to the problem.

When you find them please note the event ID, and the source codes and tell us what they are.

So I'm getting 4 beeps from my N5010.
I remove both RAM sticks & I get 2 beeps (no RAM detected) so I think my motherboard is good.
I've done every combination of RAM sticks in the slots to try to isolate a bad one, & I'm still getting 4 beeps no matter what.
What next?

A:RE: dell inspiron N5010 doesnt start only beeps 4 sounds

Hi F1098,
4 beeps are bad memory and 2 beeps are no memory as you are already aware.
Now, have you tried each memory module in each slot and it fails with 4 beeps on every case? If yes, then I would suspect the motherboard to be faulty. The chances of 2 memory modules going faulty at the same time is very rare. You could however, test this memory module on another machine to confirm if it is functional or not.
If there is no warranty, then you could contact our team to get a quote for a paid service call -

Just received my new e5470 with 4GB RAM, I wanted to upgrade to 16GB (2x8GB) which I have from my previous laptop. I found only one slot underneath, the usual place for the 2nd slot next to it does not have the slot set up and it is blank. I have also removed and checked under the keyboard but it was not there either.
The BOIS setup stated that I have two slots, one is 8GB which is I know I have (I changed the 4GB which came originally with one of the two 8GB that I have) and the other is "not slotted" which I am unable to locate.
Does anyone know where is the other slot located?

I had the exact PC a few years ago so I think that I can help. Your PC is a normal ATX type computer. Any atx mobo will fit in there. Do you live near a warehouse type store like "Fry's Electronics"? They specialize in PC parts and have excellent deals on mobo/cpu bundles. I upgraded to a socket 775 board with a dual core Pent D 945 Presler cpu. The board takes the pc-3200 400 mhz ram or the pc-4200 533mhz ram (DDR2). So you can use your current ram for now. I suggest DDR2 when you can. (2GHZ). The pci-express slot is there, as are SATA inputs if you upgrade your hardisk sometime. Good Luck.
