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.)

This is very interesting.

I would recommend completely formatting the HDD. Remove everything. Then, use an advanced partition editor (gParted or Partition Magic) to create the partitions you need.

Backup your data first, though....

The laptop appears to be dead. You plug the AC adapter but the LEDs (power light, hard drive light, battery charge light, etc?) do not light up and the laptop does not react at all if you press on the power button.
Please suggest.

Hi Onish91
Thanks for writing to us. 
When did the problem start? Have you made any hardware or software changes lately? 
Please disconnect the charger and battery and hold down the power button for 10 secs, then put back the power sources and try again. 
Also if possible remove the memory modules and try to power on, then try with one module at a time.

I am trying to reinstall windows 7 on my dell inspiron n5110 but I need to download the dell windows 7 ISO but I can't find it?  Its not available anywhere on the Dell site? How can I get it?

A:Need Dell Windows 7 ISO for Inspiron n5110

It's not downloadable.  Your best bet is probably to avail yourself of the free upgrade to Windows 10 at this point (you can get version TH2 from Microsoft and use your 7 product key that's in the battery compartment to activate it).
It's at this point unlikely Dell will ship out an end of life OS  like Windows 7.

Good news:  the drive will be an inexpensive part to replace (any 2.5" 9.5 or 7 mm SATA notebook hard drive, hybrid drive or solid state drive will work).
Bad news:  this model requires an almost complete tear-down to replace a hard drive.  The procedure is deailed

Hello,
With this post I would like to clarify if there is a solution for the USB 3.0 drivers on Windows 10 for my laptop? During the last two years had upgraded my laptop from windows 7, then to windows 8 and 8.1 and at latest to Windows 10. After the first upgrade to windows 10, USB 3.0 ports were working (with some faults, but at least sometimes working). Always were using the USB 3.0 driver from the dell support page for windows 7. Since the newest version of windows 10 is now installed, the driver became not compatible with windows 10. I know, that the technologies are moving always forward, but it is sad that the 4 years laptop may loose such simple funcions, when it is still may cover my needs.

Hello!  It looks like your hard drive is/has gone bad.  You will need to replace it.  Depending on where you live, there should be computer repair shops in your city/town that can help you.  Dell might be able to do it but it would cost a bit more as your computer is more then likely out of warranty.

I have had my dell inspiron for 5 years now. two years ago, I dropped it and the LCD shattered. I purchased a new LCD from Amazon and took it to a PC repair store nearby. (Fry's Electronics was the first choice but couldn't install the LCD due to liability issues.) I got my computer back and it worked perfectly. Now fast forward a month later and i haven't used it in about 2 weeks. I go to start up and the screen is black, I check the brightness and that didn't seem to be the problem, then i see that the LCD is fine but the backlight is very dim and keeps flickering like a light about to burn out. Could this problem be hardware and a part stopped functioning?(motherboard/inverter I hear are common culprits) Or could this be a software issue?

I'm trying to do a factory reset on my Dell laptop. I didn't receive a CD when I bought it so I tried doing it through the BIOS. I hit F8 repeatedly and got to the repair your computer screen. I selected that option and then it shows a screen that says Windows loading files. Unfortunately, after that it just freezes once the loading bar is full. Then after maybe 10 minutes it goes to resuming Windows normally (I assume a time out of some sort). Is there another way to do a factory reset? Like I said I don't have the CD because it didn't come with it. Or maybe I'm doing something wrong? Thanks

A:Dell Inspiron N5110 Factory Reset Help

Hi yuanaug,
Dell does not ship any factory recovery discs for systems. There is a ‘Dell DataSafe Local Backup’ application installed in the system wherein you could create recovery discs.Please follow the steps below to restore the computer to factory state.

Turn on the computer, after the Dell Logo appears and then disappears repeatedly press the <F8> key until you see the Advanced Boot Options menu.
From the Advanced Boot Options highlight Repair Your Computer with the arrow keys and press <ENTER>.
Click ‘Next’ and login to your administrator account on the computer. The administrator account is the account created the first time the computer was turned on.
Click ‘Dell Factory Image Recovery and DataSafe options’ and follow the prompts provided.

If the above steps are not working and your system is booting into the operating system then follow the steps in the link given below to create a factory recovery discs and use the discs to restore the computer to factory state.
http://dell.to/rXS9BO
If the computer is not booting into the operating system then I am afraid you will have to perform manual operating system reinstallation from the operating system discs.
Please let me know if this helps.

Hi everyone,
I've a problem with a DELL Inspiron N5110.
When I turn on the laptop, the fan is working for 15 seconds then it turns off by itself.. but the Windows boots properly and the other components work fine.
I know that I can't use my laptop if the CPU fan doesn't work because it will overheat the cpu and the motherboard so..
Could you please give me an opinion ?
Thank you

A:Dell Inspiron N5110 CPU Fan doesn't work

The fan will spin at powerup self test time, and then won't come on (or run at full speed) until a temperature setpoint is reached.
Depending on who replaced the mainboard, verify that the thermal pads were replaced when the heatsink was removed from the system.  If that part was not replaced, the system will run very warm.

A:Windows 7 Restore after installing XP on dell inspiron n5110

Welcome to Windows Seven Forums.

It's water under the bridge, but the first thing you should have done is create a set of recovery discs.

The first thing I'd do is contact Dell Support and explain you were unable to create your recovery disks, and that you can't get into your system, but don't let on you installed XP as that will invalidate your warranty.

With a bit of luck, they'll send you a set of recovery discs.

What directions? How do you know that any change is needed or possible in the BIOS?

I probably shouldn't be posting here, as I have never used WOL, but I thought it was just a matter of enabling the feature in the Properties of the adapter (in Device Manager). It does make sense that it could be an item in the BIOS; I just don't recall ever reading that anywhere.

A:Dell laptop inspiron n5110 is not turned off after shutdown

***SOLUTION***This is a hardware problem, not a software problem. I am running the factory Win 7 home x64 and dual booting Ubuntu 12.04 x64, with this exact problem in both OS's.What I did is I took out the keyboard and the palm rest (there should be a tear down guide put out by Dell) and you should see a coin cell battery. I took it out for about 10 seconds and then put it back in. I also checked all the other connections and removed and reseated the HDD. I then went into BIOS and made sure there weren't any funky settings. It now shuts down, suspends, and wakes properly (only tested in Ubuntu 12.04)I have no clue how or why, but that's what did it.

If you've never done so, remove the heatsink fan assembly and clean it thoroughly - and replace the thermal pads that sit between the GPU/CPU and heatsink assembly.
Unfortunately due to the design of this model, it's a major undertaking - see the service manual for the procedure, which includes removing the system board.  You may want to leave the job to a shop - expect about an hour's labor charge, whatever that costs where you're located.

Remove the keyboard and palm rest (guide from dell shows you how) and you should see a small coin cell battery. Remove it for at least 10 seconds, then put it back in. Enter BIOS and make sure there isn't anything weird that was changed. It should work properly now. I have had this working in Ubuntu 12.04 for the last few days, with no problems.

When going to update using Dells data safe it says missing recovery partition. Is there anyway I can create it without losing any data/files already on laptop. Thanks guys

A:Dell Inspiron N5110 has missing recovery partition.

Well the problem is actually on Dell's part not yours and is rather easy to solve. Actually the recovery partiton is hidden so the old version of Data Safe is unable to detect it. Let's solve this problem niw:

1. Open MyComputer, Click on C: drive.
2. Open Program Files (x86)/Dell DataSafe Local Backup/Components/DSUpdate
3. Click DSUpdate (an .exe file shown as type "Application") (You must be connected to internet)

4. It will update from version 9.4.40 to 9.4.4x (where x > 0)

5. It did something with the partition.
6. It will tell you to "reboot". Restart the laptop.
7. Then launch Dell DataSafe Local Backup.
8. This new version will detect the partition and enable you to make recovery discs.
9. You will need two DVD's and it will take approx one hour to create the recovery discs.
Hope this helps !

I know this isn't actually a graphics card issue, but most people who have an n5110 and could only either disable the display adapter or hook up an external monitor thought it was a graphics card problem, so I have posted it here (this is the category I've been lurking in).

Drivers and Downloads | Dell [Canada]

There is a BIOS update for the n5110 that should fix the problem! It has been many months of frustration and waiting and now it seems like we will finally be able to use out laptops at full resolution.

I haven't had a chance to try it out yet, but according to others it has.

There is also supposedly a BIOS update for the Vostro 3550 that fixes the same issue.

I followed the Dell recommended install order. After all the drivers are loaded, I go to Device manager and it says I am missing a network controller driver and I am unable to access wireless. I press function + F2 and I can turn on the wireless, but I am unable to add a wireless network.
I have tried numerous network drivers from the dell site - doing a win reinstall before trying a different driver, but none are working. What am I doing wrong?
I have reformatted the machine again (for the 5th time) and I have no drivers currently installed. Where do I go from here?

A:Dell Inspiron N5110 does not go into sleep mode, loses power

How long has the problem been going on? If it's within the time you have available System Restore point try rolling it back.

Sleep problems are mostly Display driver issues, so make sure your driver is up to date: First enable Automatically deliver drivers via Windows Update (Step 3) to run all Important and Optional Windows Updates, with reboots, until there are no more when you check..

Then check the Dell Support page for your Tag number to try the latest driver there.

If all available drivers don't work, then work through these Sleep Mode Problems - Vista Forums.

Establish a Clean Boot, check for errors at time of Sleep in logs, utilize System Resources from the Troubleshooting Steps for Windows 7

You can troubleshoot Sleep issues in Power Options by setting Sleep to 1 minute and Hibernate to 2 minutes to observe these timeouts behavior. I'd also try manually Sleeping and Hibernating from the Shut Down button. You want to test Hibernate too because it is an even better method to Sleep.

If all else fails trace the cause by Gathering a Startup, Shutdown, Sleep, Hibernate, or Reboot Trace - Windows 7 Forums

Of course if you have access to another N5110 and you indeed find that it has a correct winRE.wim file you can copy that file to your recovery partition and try.

But..... why don't you contact Dell India Support and put the problem to them given that your new laptop should still be under warranty and free technical support.

From my experience their Customer Service has been good and prompt and never evasive and derelict. They should be able to guide you correctly and properly to resolve your issue. I would rather advise that you take recourse to it.

Hi Saswata,
Please provide following details:
1. Did you buy the battery from Dell or is it a third party battery?2. Did you perform any hardware change apart from the battery?3. Is it an issue that has started after replacing the battery?
Thanks & RegardsManshu S#iworkfordell

Hi there, I am using Windows 8 on Dell Inspiron N5110 15R laptop. I had to upgrade my BIOS so as to install and use the most recent operating system, Windows 8. I was Windows 7 user and had to clean install Windows 8. In Windows 7, I was very much familiar with safe mode, but today, when I booted Windows 8 into safe mode (Using PC Settings, Advanced Startup etc.), and I selected "Safe Mode With Networking" on restart, and then a blue Windows logo appears with waiting dots circling, and after that the screen is just black, and even after waiting for quite some time, it is still there, as it "freezed". If you guys know the solution and can help me solve this issue, I'll be very much grateful. Thank you for your time reading this. I look forward to your opinions and suggestions. Thanks.

Hello!I've problem with my dell inspiration n5110 laptop. At the beginning there was sometimes a screen like below, but now I've it on every turn on.

Could I buy dell adapter with params 19,5V 4,62A 90W or should I look at the 130W?

Hi,
My dell Laptop after diagnostics has showed following error -Error code 2000-0151, Validation-15493.
although on Dell it shows I need to replace Hard disk.
do I need to replace it how best can I save my data ?

Pls help

Yes, from other posts on the Dell forum and other sites about this error, the drive will need to be replaced.

You MAY be able to get data off of it, by installing it in an external USB drive, or by connecting it as a second drive in a PC system, but no guarantees that it will work. Depends on how the drive has failed.

This is a very good lesson backing up at a minimum user data to some external media. Backups are not for IF the drive will fail, but backups are for WHEN the drive fails.

Usual cause is a badly seated component caused when you stripped it down to replace the fan, restrip the laptop and make sure any boards are pushed in correctly and any wiring looms are seated securely.

You just need to sometimes be a little forceful if the cable is stuck. Maybe squeeze the sides of the cable connector when pulling up.

I wanted to add to this. It seems that through trial and error that the motherboard/power supply is shorting out on a screw on the base of the unit. In particular, the two screws that are NOT on the edges, but towards the center of the laptop. I left those out and the laptop runs fine. I put them in, and I have no power at all. No lights, no fan, nothing on either DC or AC.

Just wanted to add this info in case anyone else comes along with a similar issue.

Hi there,
My Dell Inspiron laptop had an issues the other day which might to get a blue screen of death and then crash. I since tried to turn the laptop back on however, it was getting 8 beeps and staying on a black screen. Sometime it would boot and login before the black screen would appear. Usually, 8 beeps would mean the display has gone however, after further testing and research i feel that the motherboard needs replacing. I am therefore looking to replace the motherboard however, I'm not sure which one to get. The part number for the one I have now is: 0VX53T but I am unable to find this anywhere.

Hello all. Pretty simple question. Quick back story, have a 2006 Dell Inspiron 6400 laptop...was not charging battery... technician said it's not a DC jack issue (he put in a new one)...it is the section of the motherboard where the DC jack is that does not "know" when the adapter is plugged in.

So with that said, I want to take a crack at replacing the motherboard (I know I am crazy). Is there a specific model # of a motherboard that I need to look up or how does that work? If a model # is needed, where would that info be located. I am hoping the info is not in the laptop because it's dead. Thank you for your help...

A:Need advice for soldering Dell Inspiron 1501 motherboard

Can you post an photo of your soldering?I'm not sure if I can help, but an image might help us understand what you are looking at.

I solder quite often, and have done repair work such as you are attempting. I do know it is easiest to when there is only one solder joint to contend with. One joint such as a wire you can pull the wire as you heat and once hot enough the wire will pull free. Several solder joints are a different ballgame. There are two choices, and one choice I've never had the equipment to do so. Heating every join at the same time, can be done by blowing hot air across the component. I've never had the equipment for it, so I've been left with the choice of cleaning each joint one at a time. I noticed this is how you were attempting solder removal.

Solder tips must be clean and prepped for use. A trashy tip can cause an insulated barrier and prevent heating of the solder joint. Always tin your tips with a tad of solder before you ever use it the first time. If you don't tin your tip, you will always have trouble using it.
Pre-heat the tip so you are not waiting and possibly causing damage to the solder joint and/or component. Spending too much time on a solder joint is never a good idea. You want to heat the joint as quickly as possible without heating everything else.
On removal with the wick, the wick needs to be just as clean as the solder tip or it will not absorb any of the solder. A little bit of soldering flux may help the wick absorb. But if the wick has already been used, it is doubtful it will work again.
Soldering flux is always helpful when soldering joints back in place anyway. Especially on surfaces that have not been soldered previously. It doesn't take much, a finger smear is plenty sufficient. however on multi-strand wire you will want enough flux to absorb into the strands of the wire.
Don't bubble your joint, all you need is a slim joint connection. More solder will do nothing for the joint. Watch for solder beads, that can unexpectedly drop off your tip cause shorts.
One last piece of advice, soldering is no different than welding metal. Solder will not stick unless both surfaces are heated. If you only heat one side of the joint, solder will not stick to the other side. It's usually a better to try and heat the larger surface first as the smaller heats up more quickly. It's the timing of both surfaces that you want heated at the same time.

A:Inspiron n5110 please assist

4 Beeps indicate a RAM fault. So faulty RAM, improperly seated RAM, or faulty motherboard RAM slots.

Ever since the last Windows update (running Windows 10) my laptop has said it isn't charging. I've been using it regularly and the battery power just stays exactly where it is. When I unplug and use it, it drains like it normally would, and when I plug back in, it just maintains whatever percentage it got down to.

Do I need a new battery or AC adapter? Help please

A:Inspiron 15R N5110 Says it isn't charging but it is

I like to suggest you try the steps in the video below for a possible fix.

I also like to suggest you check the status of the AC adapter and battery in the BIOS. Please follow steps below

A) Power off computer (make sure AC adapter connected to computer and battery as well).
B) Power on computer, quickly tap the F2 key continuously. You should be in the BIOS screen.

In the BIOS, go to the Advanced tab and look for battery health, it should say "This Battery Is Performing Normally'. If there's any other message, it mean the battery is faulty and need a replacement. Look under the main screen and look for AC adapter type. If the adapter says Unknown or None then it's a problem with adapter

I have removed my bad motherboard. I want to replace with correct part number and install. Where is the location of the part number on the board for replacement?

A:where can I find the location of my dell inspiron 17r n5721 motherboard part number.

Look near the memory sockets for a number beginning with CN-0....   -- the five digits after the zero are the Dell part number.

A:Dell Inspiron 1520 hard drive crashed... did motherboard crash also?

There's no reason to think it's the board.
Did you make a warranty claim on the drive?
Did you install XP on the replacement drive, or just try to use it as is? A repair install may solve the problem, but a clean install would be better.

My AC adapter and battery are both good. also replaced the cmos battery. However when i plug in the AC adapter to my N5110 the green light on the charger goes out and still nothing. I have replaced the charging port for 8.00 more dollars still the same issue. I cannot afford to replace anymore parts on a dead laptop that i am still paying off. The right hinge is broken also but that i can super glue. Any suggestions? Please Help I cannot Afford a 300.00 replacement motherboard. I have spent thousands on Dell laptops and desktops and software please HELP.

A:Inspiron N5110 wont power on at all?

The mainboard needs to be replaced.  They run between $100-150 -- not $300 (unless you need to have a shop replace the board, where you can add another $100 to the parts cost for labor).

Hello all,
I recently got an Inspiron N5110 as a gift. I had asked for an i5 or an i7 processor, but instead I got an i3-2330M CPU @ 2.20 GHz.. I was wondering if I would be able to replace the i3 with an i5 or an i7, and if so, what, if any, other changes I would have to make to my computer, such as RAM, etc. I will post the information below, and if any more information is necessary, then please request it.
 OS: Windows 7 Home Premium- SP 1 Processor: Intel Core i3-2330M CPU @ 2.20 GHz RAM: 4 GB System Type: 64-bit OS
Thanks a lot!

A:Processor Swap- Inspiron N5110

System should take both i5 or i7;  that said, upgrading the CPU will void the warranty.
A mid-range i5 will run about $250;  an i7-quad, about $600.

How do you update the BIOS on an Inspiron N5110 without a charger?  I have downloaded the installer N5110A11.EXE from Dell, and run it from an elevated command prompt using the line
N5110A11.EXE /forceit
but each time I do so a message box appears with the text "Error: unknown command".  Is there a different command syntax that works with this BIOS installer?
Background
I have an Inspiron N5110 that is not charging the battery and will not run off the charger.  I have tried several chargers that work with other Inspirons.  I have replaced the power jack board, and that did not fix the problem.  Reflashing the BIOS seems to be the only remaining approach to take.
Note that the laptop is running Windows 7.

I have a Dell Inspiron N5110 that when turned on will beep 8 times.
The display LCD will turn on as well as power button light, but no Dell splash screen or anything else. Just 8 beeps over and over and over until I turn it off.
I have tried to boot the laptop up with and without the battery pack, with a different power convertor, I have tried to re-seat the RAM sticks and none of that works.
I tried to boot into the Diagnostics with F12, but the beeps start before I get a chance.
Does anyone have any ideas or know what the 8 beeps means on this model laptop?

A:Inspiron N5110 - 8 Beeps at startup

Hi IntecIT,
The Dell Inspiron N5110 might emit a series of beeps during start-up if the LCD cannot display errors or problems. The 8 beeps on this model indicate an LCD failure. However, I suggest you to try connecting a known good external monitor and check if it works (If available).
Do reply with your findings.
