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 recently purchased the Dell USB-C to VGA/HDMI/USB/Ethernet Adapter (Dell 470-ABQN) to use as a dock with my XPS 15 9550. Unfortunately while using this adapter the fans run at a very high speed, approximately 80%, and are therefore loud and disturbing during meetings and desk work. I have it connected to only an HDMI monitor and a USB mouse receiver. The fans also run constantly when using the built-in USB and HDMI ports, but at a tolerable level. I will have to return this item without a fix, so could someone at Dell please advise if there is a solution or if this is a known issue that will be reviewed? I have updated both the Thunderbolt firmware and software and applied all Windows Updates. Thanks

Welcome PopPoPpoP, I have searched for a result that works but am unable to find one. Without any details of your Motherboard and hardware using, i can only assume that somehow a firmware program is not working as it should.

I have four computers that are connected at any given time to the home network. I believe have two issues here.

The first, all of the computers connect and surf the Internet at very slow speeds. Sometimes it seems like I'm back on Dial-up. My MacBook (which is my main computer I work from) connects to the Internet with an Ethernet cable directly into the DSL box. Even if I turn the other three computers off in the office I still run slow on the Internet. Any thoughts on how to improve this? My DSL provider says its an issue with our setup. Great thanks for the help!

Second, my Mac overall seems to be running very slow. I have over 14GB of available space so I would not think that the computer is in overload.

Any support would be greatly appreciated.

A:Moving at turtle speed - Internal Network issue or DSL issue?

If you have more than one computer, and all exhibit the same symptoms, it's hard to believe they're all bad.
Pick one that doesn't exhibit any other issues and do this:

Register at DSLReports and run their Line Quality Tests. It's best to run this test with a direct wired connection to eliminate any wireless issues from the results. It's useful many times to run this test several times, and we'd like to see each of the results. Post the results link from the top of the test display page for each test run here.

The link to post is near the top of the page and looks like:

If you wish to post this result to a forum, please copy/paste this URL <- sample only, yours will obviously be different!
and your IP will be disguised.

Copy/paste that link here.

Note: You will have to enable PING (ICMP) request response either in your router (if you have one), or in your computer's firewall for direct modem connections. This is very important to get the most important part of the test to run.

I have recently upgraded my system from windows vista to windows 7. Everything seems to work fine except the printer - Dell all in one printer 922. To solve the issue, I have followed several solutions from different forums. For e.g., according to one solution (this solution seemed sensible), I have deleted the printer from my system, uninstalled all the printer driver software and have tried to use the vista 32 drivers to get my printer working. But all in vain. I have tried the process almost ten times now and I am tired. That's why I have come to this forum. Please could any one of you help me resolve this issue. Thank you in anticipation.


A:Windows 7 - Dell aio 922 Printer Issue

I had the same problem with my Dell AIO 964... Try downloading the the Patch/Upgrade .Zip file from the Dell website. When it finishes downloading open it and run the DellCleanUpUtility.exe this will delete the driver that Windows 7 automatically installed. When the Utility completes it will ask to reboot, allow it do so, then procede to install the windows vista version of your printer driver from the Dell website. Cho Yung Tea

Recently our Dell Optiplex 330 experienced some pretty severe virus attacks that render the computer useless. The user had disabled the installed protect advising that it slowed his performance and would not let him install cute little things from his favorite social network. The machine was so hosed it was determined the best course of action was to reformat the drive and basically start over. The problem is this unit was sold to us by Dell with a license for Windows Vista Business which we request it be down graded to XP service pack 3. Each time we attempt to reinstall windows xp from teh provided original disc we get the famous blue screen advising there is a problem with the hard drive, etc. How can we reinstall the our favorite XP? The unit has a SATA hard drive. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

I've purchased a DELL 640m recently, and it came with Windows Vista. I decided to get a new HD and install XP on it. After downloading a bunch of drivers:
R92578, R114079, R120775, R120895, R141246, R149798, R150593

Everything seems to be working except.... I see a system error everytime the machine is restarted or resume from suspension/hibernation.

Worse is that all programs are closed after a restart from suspension/hibernation. System Error follows:

Hi lijish,
I’d suggest that you update BIOS and chipset driver on your computer to check for issue resolution. Please enter your service tag # on the link below, then download the BIOS from BIOS section and chipset from chipset section onto the system and install it.
Also, please connect an external USB mouse to check if it works.
In addition please perform Windows update on the system.

Yes, it's an older model, but I want to fix it and give it away.  Anyways, the audio driver is not working and is not actually detected by Windows.  It says 'No Audio Device' in Sounds & Audio Devices.  In 'Device Manager', 'Other Devices' has a yellow question mark with 'Multimedia Audio Controller' next to it.
Things I have tried to do:
a) Install Intel Chipset from Dell and then install Soundmax, which is also supported from Dell.
b) Install the 2 Audio Drivers from the Dell Website.
b) Reboot.
Also, I do not have the original CD for the audio drivers so I cannot install it when Windows detects it upon booting up.  Does anybody know how to resolve this issue?

Hello Forum,

Super stumped on this one. I have a Dell Laptop that just rolled into the shop and it throws a Missing BOOTMGR error. I checked out the drive and it is an XP install, however the NTLDR, NTDETECT.COM and BOOT.INI are all missing. Since this laptop used to be a Windows 7 OS and now is solely windows XP, why would it need to find the BOOTMGR file?

I added the file in and it still runs into problems. Every time I add in the NTLR and NTDETECT.COM it still throws the missing BOOTMGR error.

I tried running the FIXBOOT and FIXMBR with no avail. I also ran disk checks with Ubuntu and still no go.

Any reason why it would be looking for the BOOTMGR on an XP partition?

I have been trying to do a clean install of Win 7 on a Dell Dimension 4600. In the Bios I set the Dell to boot from the CD ROM drive. It will not boot and I keep getting the Press F1 to retry boot or F2 for setup utility. I also tried installing the old XP(SP1) OS just to see if it would boot and it did so CD ROM drive is ok. I tried the WIN 7 OS cd in my current PC to see if it would boot and it did so the CD must be good (CD is original OEM). Frustrated and need help . Thanks.

So I downloaded the image from Dells site and put it on a USB and booted from it. My SSD does show up, but it gives me an error when I try to install it on a partition. I forgot the exact error, but it says something about checking the log which I also can't find. I even tried deleting the partition and installing it on the volume it shows and even tried creating a new one. None of it worked.

Basically I took out the old SSD (I think its an M2 SSD) and put in a larger one and just want to put Windows on it again.

I've been having issue with booting up my Dell Studio 15. It will load past the Dell screen but will not progress past the Window XP screen. The bar will continue to scroll and eventually the laptop just shuts off on it's own. I am hoping this is just a software issue but when running a diagnostic on the laptop it has also been shutting down mid scan. This is the same case as when I try to run CHKDSK prompt while in Windows Recovery Console. I was able to locate my original XP CD that came with the laptop and need help walking through the process of restoring/repair XP.

Hello everyone,

1. When ever im using a browser ie. Internet explorer and google chrome, my browser scrolls down automatically to the bottom page even if im typing or watching a video.
2. when im playing a fulls screen online video my video tends to auto pause.
3. when ever i donot have a browser open and i open any other window/application everything minimizes, though i haven't noticed these issues when im playing game in full screen.

this happens quiet frequent and even continuously happens about 2-4 times max at a time. on a note the screen is touch screen as well i have run the dell support tests but everything seems fine. please help me resolve this
Really appreciate ur help q.q

A:Issue loading in UEFI mode after setting up Windows 8 on SSD on Dell XPS 8700

I ended up reinstalling Windows 8 from the disc. Apparently with Dell, when booting off the OS disc in UEFI mode, the dell logo appears and it pretty much freezes there for a few minutes til it loads Windows 8 installation process. This, I accidentally found out after having to get off the computer right when the dell logo appeared on my screen after selecting option to load off boot disc. Figures. None of the dell techs told me it would take a few minutes either. Either ways, I'm going to run hardware tests afterwards to make sure there is nothing wrong with any of my parts after windows update is complete.

Every since windows 10 upgrade i have been having issues with my audio. When i start a video for the first time i will hear crackling and poping noise then it will catch up after i pause the video and play again.  Then the audio slowly goes out of sync.  At first i thought that were my speakers, but it was happening over headphones as well.  I tried the latest version of driver along with switching to the windows 10 generic audio drivers.  Anyone else having issues with this?

A:Dell Inspiron modular bay issue/boot-up issue

You should first try a second hard drive with a full install. That usually fixes the problems with the 1100, 1150, 5100m, 5150, and 5160 which all seem to have the same problems.
Remember that this optical drive is fragile, and has a history of failure. New models are available with DVD RW that are quite reliable, on eBay. They range from $72 to $85 to $89 to $95. If you are good with tools, you can get the generic one, then revise the hardware to make everything fit just fine.

I set my computer up to run Ubuntu or Windows 7 in the Ubuntu OS I have full speed, like 980mbps but in Windows I can only get around 370mbps, they informed me that it was a know issue which is why they carry around laptops with Ubuntu instead of windows to troubleshoot there system.

I have a problem with my dell XPS 13 (9343). Since 2 days my laptop is sometimes very slow. When I then open my task manager my cpu speed is limited to 0.48 () even when i change my power mode to high performanc. I've also installed the new bios A05 but without succes. There is 1 solution to temporary solve this issue: Plug in my dell power companion for a couple seconds and than plug it out. After that the speed limit is gone and my cpu will jump back up to 2.2 ghz. But when my computer goes back to sleep mode and then back to active the speed limit is back to 0.48 gh. Can anyone help me with this problem ?

A:Dell XPS 15 9550 Thunderbolt and Fan Speed

I agree 100%. Bottom line is that ThunderBolt 3, at least in the XPS 15 9550 implementation, is not ready for prime time.
Right now I am running with my XPS 15 closed using an external monitor connected to the integrated HDMI port, a USB 3 adapter into which I have plugged my gigabit ethernet, my usb keyboard, and my integrated monitor webcam. I also have my wireless mouse dongle connected to one of the integrated laptop usb ports and have my power adapter connected. Fan is completely silent and everything works perfectly. I should be able to connect all of that thru the TB15 dock using the single Thunderbolt 3 connection to the XPS 15 9550 with exactly the same results. Unfortunately with the current state of drivers I cannot.
I bought my TB15 dock directly from Dell. Their can't be that many of us. You would think Dell would make the effort to make sure that all of us that did would be communicated to and taken care of...apparently not.

Hi, Does anyone know approximately what my DL speed should be. My desktop routinely is 88mbps via Comcast. My Inspiron 15 #3521 laptop is 38-41 mbps. The network adapters are Dell Wireless 1704 802.11b/g/n (2.4GHz) & Realtek PCIe FE Family Controller.

Laptop is not what I would call slow, but was wonder about the internet speed being a little lower than half of my desktops 88 mbps. Oh yeah both computers are the same (12mbps) on upload. Perhaps these are normal speeds for the laptop?

I have not tried to use ethernet connection like the desktop.

I have a Dell Latitude C840 and since last night it has been running at a speed of 1.2 GHz instead of the normal speed of 2.0 GHz. It's really annoying as everything's choppy as hell. I checked the BIOS and sometimes it says it runs at 2.0, and sometimes it runs at 1.2. The problem is I don't have the main password to permanently set it to 2.0 GHz (bought it used) and have no idea how to reset the password in order to change the clock speed.

If there's another way of doing this without going through the BIOS, please let me know.

A:Dell Precision T7600 CPU Temperature & Fan Speed

I was able to re-install bios A10 (it appeared to include a couple things my already installed version didn't ).
Anyway, tried running a number of things to keep the processor at 100% for a few hours.  Looks like the fan speeds now do change and the maximum CPU temperature I was able to get (and only briefly) was 72C.  It primarily sat in the mid to high 60s with fan speeds varying between ~1000-1500 rpm as required to keep it there.
I'd say the new BIOS has fixed my issue.

I've had this Dell Latitude C400 for quite a while now, but recently I've noticed that the bus speed (which is usually 133 MHz) changes by itself to 33 MHz and doesn't change back unless you do a couple of reboots. I know that it's not the SpeedStep thing because that should make it run at 800 MHZ processing speed. It's labeled as a 1.2 GHZ CPU and currently it's running at around 193 MHZ according to CPU-Z. Dell says that it's my hard drive... don't know how that could affect the bus speed, but I guess it's because it's Dell. :haha: What could be the issue and how can I fix it other than replacing parts?

Maybe a little late to reply, but I'm facing the exact same problem with the same machine. I've had the laptop for more than two years before I first started using a second screen about a year ago and faced the above mentioned problem. As suggested by tech support, I cleaned the fan, reinstalled Windows a couple of times, did all kinds of diagnostics and checks, bios is the latest available (A11)... nothing to report. Today I fitted a new fan and heatsink, that didn't help either. Really frustrating.

Hello Erekosa, welcome to Vista forums!

Seeing that you're having issues with new RAM installed and 'handler' issues; it may be that the 'new' RAM is bad! (it happens)

The best option would be to burn Memtesr86 to a CD and test each stick individually for at least one full pass.

I am taking a class at my school, and they lent us these older Dell laptops that run at 1.3ghz, have 800mhz fsb, and contain 256mb ddr ram (loaded up bios on the computer to see). What I can't figure out is the fact that whenever I log on using the schools user name, the computer takes a good 30 seconds logging on, and starts out with 100% usage of the cpu, although only has 22 processes. I end around six or seven of them, although the computer speeds up, it is still slow. It could probably use a good defragmenting, though it wouldn't slow down that much, right? Also, the computers are very restricted. I know some bugs with Xp that can remove the administators password, but I won't touch these computers further than I have.

A:Speed issue

Hi cfitzarl,

I don't know if there are 1.3 GHZ CPU's with a 800MHZ FSB. I think those 800MHZ FSB CPU's are Northwood's C (A or B, donīt know ), and Prescotts.
There are 1.3GHZ P4's, with 400MHZ FSB, some P3's with 133FSB, etc.

Regarding the machine, I'd defragment it, but it would take a while. I don't think that you have time to do it.
Also, it could have viruses, and crap like that.

Anyways, 1.3 GHZ is a little slow for windows XP, so don't expect miracles, especially if they have a normal coppermine Celeron CPU.

A:Speed issue

Does that computer come with onboard graphics? And if so did you disable it in the BIOS and or uninstall it in device manager? Was the Pro installed fresh? Have you tried uninstalling then reinstalling the GPU drivers? In the BIOS you'll find a setting that says Init Display First. If you switched from onboard to a graphics card that need to be changed from PCI to AGP or PCI express depending on the systems configuration. The other thing is when the graphics become jerky like that it is often either a GPU unable to handle the applications graphics (like an old card trying to play a new game), or it's a GPU heat issue, but with the heat thing you would probably be getting artifacts (patchy areas that aren't rendering properly) as well.

After making sure you have the latest wireless adapter driver from Dell's web site I suggest that you try TCPOptimizer:

It will backup your settings before making changes, but creating your own Restore Point before trusting it is prudent (some will argue overcautious).

Hi I recently found my laptop's cpu fan behaving abnormally.
In normal situation, the fan would run at lower rpm speed most of the time (even after opening several programs & web browser tabs) & the noise was negligible.
Lately, the fan consistently runs on full high rpm speed & the noise is very annoying. I have not installed any new programs & my computer activities (see above) remained unchanged but this fan just keep running at full noisy speed.
I have tried to remove the dust using those can air dusters and even tried SpeedFan software to try to control the fan speed but to no avail.
Can anyone teach me how to control the fan speed to run mostly at lower rpm?
Thank you.

Hi sotong,
I would suggest you to update the BIOS on the computer so that the hardware settings are reset and the fan may run on the normal RPM. Please enter your service tag # on the link below, then download the BIOS required onto the system and install it.

Question is about a Dell 980 Optiplex computer running Windows 7 Pro.
The C drive has failed. All I want to know is :
- The bus speed for the SATA drive in the Dell service manual says 1.5gb and 3.0 gb/s
- I purchased a Western Digital Blue WD10EZEX 1TB 7200 rpt 64mb cache SATA 6.0Gb/s internal drive.

What problems would I experience if I install this WD drive into the Dell?
What needs to be done to enable a 6.0Gb/s drive to work with a computer having a bus speed of 3.0Gb/s?

A:Replacing C drive in Dell Optiplex 980, bus speed question

You won't notice any speed issues using a 7200 rpm HDD on a SATA II (3 Gbps) port. Now, if you would get an SSD, you would see lower than advertised speeds - as an SSD nowadays is faster than SATA II.

I have a Dell Inspiron 8100 and it list the processor clock speed at 1000/733 mhz. The processor speed is currently at 733 mhz. Is there a setting that can be changed to achieve the full 1000mhz clock speed?
Any suggestions would be helpful.

A:Is Dell Inspiron 8100 processor speed correct?

Your Inspiron like many notebooks will throttle back your processor speed to reduce heat and prolong battery life. So even though it is a ~1Ghz processor it will at times run at 733MHz. That's normal behavior. You might be able to disable this feature in Control Panel/Power Options.

Why is the XPS 9550 POST speed so slow. The amount of time it takes from when you press the power button to when it starts Windows is about 5-7 seconds. This slows the startup time of the laptop significantly! With an SSD a cheaper Acer computer beats this computer to POST by about 3-5 seconds. It takes the Acer about 2 seconds to start booting Windows. I am on the latest BIOS/UEFI as of 24/04/2016 which is 01.02.00. I suspect this could be something to do with fast booting! Please fix this as it would be amazing to have a faster booting computer!

My Dell Latitude E7440 laptop came with Windows 8.1 at the time I bought it. I did not notice this problem until I upgraded to Windows 10.
Sometimes when I put the laptop to sleep and resuming at a later time, the CPU speed is limited to around 0.78 GHz and switching to High Performance mode won't help. The computer becomes very slow and the only way to fix it is rebooting.
I have the latest BIOS installed (A15) and other drivers are also updated.
I have seen other threads saying that the problem is caused from using Dell Power Companion but I am not using it. I have 2 power adapters that I use with this laptop, one of them is a Dell 90W adapter. I am not sure about the other one as I do not have it right now, but that one originally came with the laptop.
Any temporary/permanent fix for this? Thank you.

Ok, I'm stumped by my internet issue. Maybe you can shed some light on it.

Ping is averaging 11000ms, upload 0.01-0.07, download 0.2-0.4
Here's the setup: AT&T modem --> Linksys Router --> 2 simple switches --> computers

What I tried:
1. I plugged in a laptop directly to the modem and speed is back to normal.
2. I swapped out a cat 5 cable between the modem and router and speed was back to normal for a few minutes, then bad again.
3. I swapped out the router with a new one and speed was back to normal for a few minutes, then bad again.

So the router is fine. I don't think it's the switches if everything is working fine for a couple minutes. Also, my wireless is fast and then bad again when I tried swapping stuff out.

Any ideas?

I am using a D-Link DIR-655 router on a Windows Home Server network.

When I connect the WHS to a cable upstairs (short cable) I get Gigabit connection speed, however when I put the server downstairs (10 metre cable), I only get 100 Mb LAN speed.

The only difference is the CAT-5e cable and length.

Do I need a shielded CAT-5e or a CAT-6 cable.

The WHS box needs to be downstairs.

I'm running a DSL connection from a router to my wireless laptop. Regularly my speeds aren't quite as advertised but I still get 2-4 Mb/s generally. Lately it seems my web browsing has been sluggish and doing a speed test, this is proven.

However, bittorrent downloads go much faster than normal browsing.

Can anyone explain to me why this might be? I thought my slow speed could be due to my latency, but that doesn't explain to me why bittorrent is so much faster!

Hi guys after installing some new RAM i checked CPU-Z to see if all was ok, and it doesn't seem to be.

I bought some Crucial Ballistix 8Gb 1866MHz, however is doesn't seem to be running at 1866 more like 667MHZ.

I have a Gigabyte GA-970A-DS3 and a AMD FX-4100

Is there way i can force the speed on the RAM to 1866?

Any input is greatly appreciated.


A:Memory Speed Issue

CPU-Z reports the clock frequency of the RAM. DDR (DDR2, DDR3) transfer data twice per clock tick, so CPU-Z reports 667MHz for DDR3-1333.

Most motherboards seem to run DDR3-1333 and up at DDR3-1333 by default. To get the higher frequency, you'd either need to set the BIOS to use XMP, or manually set the RAM frequency and timings.

i am downloading google softwares with fast speed but slow on other sites slow speed.....

I mean when i download any google softwares and youtube videos speed will be about 1Mbps but when i download from any sites like or other sites speed will be about 25 kbps...please guide me ...



A:Issue on download speed

First what kind of internet service do you have, and what speed.
Test your internet using dsl reports, or speedtest. I prefer speedtest: - The Global Broadband Speed Test

How are you connecting to the internet, wired or wireless. Also as a side note the slow download speeds could also be on the downstream server end. The number of simultaneous downloads, they might throttle back the server to save bandwith, etc.

A:Internet Speed issue

That is not a bad speed at all. The advertized speed is the maximum, rarely achieved in real situations. The location of your internet connection is where WildBlue's servers connect you to the internet.

Not sure what to say about your video problem except that when I had a 2 mbps connection, I watched YouTube without many delays. A lower quality feed may help.

Hello everyone, I am using a linksys WRT54GS wireless router and usually works fine, but lately I noticed it's been getting slow speeds and then when I restart the router it goes back to normal and very fast for about 20-30 minutes (could vary and be longer sometimes). But then after that it goes back to it's slow speed until I restart it again.

When I bypass the router it works fine with direct connection, all my firmware is upgraded, getting 100% signal strength, it's not just my computer because when I ping from the router admin panel it gets all request timed out aswell.

Thanks for any help I can get.

I have a Dell Latitude D620 laptop that I bought in 2006 and it runs EXTREMELY slow, whether I am on the Internet or just doing basic tasks in Windows or MS Office. It has Windows XP, some basic software (like MS Office), and only a few files (because the hard drive crashed last year, so I only put a few files back on it, after installing the new hard drive). I know it's relatively old, but is there ANYTHING I can do to increase the speed of the computer, without buying additional memory? Any help I can get with increasing the speed will be greatly appreciated.

Also, I don't know if this is a different issue, but sometimes the laptop seems to get too hot (at the bottom) after being on for too long.

Thanks in advance.

When will Dell enable Intel Speed Shift via a BIOS update? All the BIOS update requires is requires is writing 1 to MSR 0x770!
Speed Shift was fully supported by Intel and Microsoft in 2015 (1 year ago!). It makes the CPU much more responsive (particularly in gaming and real-time tasks) and costs nothing.
In the meantime, anyone can run software manually to enable Speed Shift but you need to relaunch the software every time your computer sleeps or turns off, so that is inconvenient. But the boost in performance is worth the effort.
I have manually enabled SpeedShift via software such as ThrottleStop or just writing 1 to MSR 0x770.

We are currently using Dell Latitude 6430u which were purchased in 2013. Most of them work perfectly, however many of the laptops are starting to constantly have the fan running at high speeds constantly resulting in temperatures above 100 degrees F. The laptops are normally only utilizing 2-25% of their cpu which should not result in these constantly spinning fans that result in the keyboards getting hot. I have checked the bios on the computers as well as the drivers.

A:Dell Latitude D600 not running a full processor speed

What are you using to test the speeds? It was never a high speed laptop in the first place, but it has always been a darn good and reliable one.

Large hard drive can make a difference if it is 100 GB or larger... using the Dell version of Windows... the system wastes too much time checking empty space.

Be sure you have WXP SP2 installed, but hold back on WXP SP3, as SP3 protects Microsoft, but slows down an already slow laptop.

Hi NomadAU, welcome to Seven Forums.

I recently had similar problems with my Netgear DGN2000. It would download on my wired desktop pc at a snails pace. On my laptop, speed was excellent. When I wired my laptop to my router it would load my home page only and gave No Internet connection. If I moved the ethernet cable to any other ports on the router to my desktop pc it would give No Internet connection.
Removing all connection related settings from both pc's and resetting router to factory default did nothing to improve anything. So I bought a Netgear DGN2200v3, now normal service resumed.
