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.)

A: Sudden graphics issue on Dell Laptop

It's the sort of screen corruption seen when the integrated graphics are shot. The laptop probably needs a new motherboard. Playing high intensity video games for long periods on laptops isn't a good idea unless they have been designed to do the job. That warranty should come in handy.

To get into most bios you need to only hit "del" key on boot up. You can also try starting up in save mode(f8) to see if it is in fact a driver issue.

A:Dell Optiplex 760- Intel 4 Graphics Issue

Welcome to Seven Forums.
Go into device manager and see if your monitor is listed.
If it is listed as pnp. I would suggest going to Dell to see if their is a.inf file (driver) for it and install it.

Installing the .inf file should get your monitor recognized and this will allow it to run it's native resolution.

A:Dell vostro 1015 power\graphics issue?

Sounds like it has some serious issues, you probably have a motherboard issue and it is taking a long time to pass post or isn't passing because there is something wrong and it can't pass so it won't move on.  Sounds like you are going to have to replace it.  All the stuff that you are mentioning that has happened sounds like a failing component on the motherboard that finally just totally failed and now Intermittently works but doesn't stay working very long.  Everything that is removable you have tried to boot with it not connected and still having the issue, then there is something on the board itself.

I have bought two different types of graphics cards for my computer that were recomended to me from Dell and neither are working. I am averaging four hours at a time with Dell on the phone and they can't get them to work. The first card I bought was a Geforce 8400 and they said it was a faulty card and sent me a new one. That new card after 4 hours on the phone they said was non-compatible with my computer or my Vista was corrupt. I was getting a blue screen with all kinds of data file errors. Then they recommended an ATI Radeon 2400. I received that and after three and a half hours I was told it was faulty and they are sending me a new one today. My problem is why can't anybody figure this out and get me a card that will work or get my Vista to work. How can I tell if Vista is corrupt?

A:Supported graphics card for my Dell Laptop

uhm, I'm pretty sure I have bad news.
Had a look at the service manual, and your machine does not support any other graphic card (mainly because it has no "card", everything is integrated in the motherboard).

Laptops of your model can be ordered with an optional though, an AMD Radeon HD 6470M discrete graphics with 512MB of dedicated memory. Did you ask for this when you bought it? Otherwise it is a standard model with simple graphics.

If you want to upgrade graphics performance, you must buy a computer with a better card. It is actually the norm for laptops.

A:Graphics Card Situation on Dell Laptop

While at 3670 isn't great, its not horrible... Saddly you have no upgrade options really. 90% of laptops have the gpu built/soddered on to the mainboard.

Have you monitored you gpu temperature? I like using hwmonitor to watch things as it shows everything at once.

I've had this issue with my 9600m gt, that after abit of use, it'll start to lag bad.. A thorough cleaning helped alot.

I am pretty noobin when it comes to this so bear with me.

I just got a dell XPS 17 laptop,

the laptop comes with a GeForce GT 435m with 1gb video card.

I went to check out the overall 'score' of the laptop and it showed the following

Processor - 6.8
Ram - 5.9
Graphics - 4.3
Gaming Graphics - 6.6
Primary Hard Disk - 5.9

what I dont get is why the 'graphics' is so much lower than the 'gaming graphics'? I went into display on the device manager and there are 2 adapters listed

my geforce and one 'intel HD graphics' - why does it use 2 adapters?

does this have to do why my graphics score is so low? because it is using the worse adapter for that?

Is there anything I can do about that graphics score? i figured the geforce was a decent card and wouldnt have limitations like that?

any help would be appreciated

A:New laptop (dell XPS 17) - graphics score questions?

The system is using the Intel HD graphics chip when at the desktop, when serious 3D power isn't needed. When you run a game or try to do anything intensive enough, the system will use the GeForce chip. This is to save battery life, and I have no idea if you can run the GeForce full time, maybe someone else here is more familiar with that chipset.

Your desktop graphics score would likely be identical to your gaming score, if you wanted to know.

From what I can tell from the Dell documentation, you can only use one or the other and if the optional video, such as you have, is installed that is the default.

The Dell BIOS is protected and any attempt to modify the Dell BIOS will most likely cause it to Corrupt. There is no recovery from a corrupted BIOS on a Dell, the ONLY option is to replace the motherboard.

A:Changing card graphics(HD3000 intel) in Dell Laptop. Is it possible?

I looked at the specs for the N5110 and that laptop is designed for dual graphics.
It says it has an optional AMD Radeon HD 6470M graphics card.

First, I would check in the Device Manager to see if you have 2 graphics devices, if you do not already know that you bought the laptop without the dedicated graphics option.

If not, then I would look at purchasing the optional card from Dell.
I'd have more info but without a Service Tag number you can't get any info out of Dell.

I have a Dell XPS 15 L502X Laptop which has an integrated graphics card and a nvidia geforce gt 540m. Is it possible to replace the nvidia graphics card and if so what cards would be able to fit in the slot?

A:Can i swap out my nvidia graphics card in my Dell XPS 15 L502X laptop?

Nothing you could buy on the open market. You should really contact Dell and see if a better replacement is available for that model.
From the NVidia forum on this exact subject:
"Some laptops are fitted with MXM modules, which are basically mini PCIe graphics cards. These modules are replaceable, yet rarely upgradeable. Normally the laptop will be designed to support a particular module, both in terms of power & cooling as well as well as form factor. Unfortunately despite the fact that 'MXM' is a standard, there are enough differences between module and laptop design that you are probably stuck with what you've got.

For laptops which are not fitted with MXM modules, the only option is to replace the motherboard as the graphics chipset will be built in.

Caveats for others:

- If the laptop you bought had faster graphics options at point of purchase - i.e. the 580M was offered but you only went for the 540M, then it is possible that a higher performance MXM module may be available. It might take quite some trial and error and time on Google to find this out.

- If the laptop was available with an NVIDIA graphics card, but you only opted for the Intel on-board at the time, then it is possible you could find a replacement motherboard which has the NVIDIA chip fitted."

A:Switchable graphics driver issue on HP laptop

Hi and Welcome -I searched the Microsoft Windows 7 forums and found this answer that fixed one "Error 0x490" problem. - - -Your boot information is bad. afaik, you will have to do a startup repair to fix it.I could not find a MS link for this but I found this >> to boot into the recovey options >> (USE METHOD 2 !!!)and this >> to do the startup repair which actually looks at things like MBR and the BOOT folder.As with anything of this type, I strongly recommend backing up anything and everything - create an image of each and every partition.Hope that helps.How did this happen? I rather suspect that something happened, the system rebooted, and stopped at a screen which had something like system repair as a default, the timer went out, it did its thing, and unfortunately incorrectly. i have lost opsyses that way.I strongly recommend always setting:Control Panel / System / Advanced System Settings / (System Properties) Advanced tab / look at "Startup and Recovery" , click settings button - in system failure: uncheck "automatically restart"This will enable you to see any errors that are causing a reboot.See if the information is any help to you -Regards -

I have a major graphics problem that shows up everywhere. (navigation windows, games, starcraft 2, internet browsers, and even just on my desktop background and toolbar). It seems to get worse when I am running things such as starcraft 2 that require a lot of graphics power. But sometimes I'll just come to my computer and wake it up, and there my whole desktop will be covered in lines and blockyness! I hate it! any ideas appreciated. attached are some screen shots of the issue. Notice the lines and blocks in the top bar of windows and through the pages on icons and button.

note: I have made sure that all my drivers are updated through the dell website. That was my first attempt to fix it. I also ran a diagnostics on the start-up just to see if that would fid something, and everything passed fine.

Try Last Known Configuration. If that doesn't work then boot into Safe Mode and uninstall the Display driver and restart. Windows will load the Default VGA driver. Then you can download an updated driver for the display.

when a mb fails partially, it is hard to tell. If no laptop drive is recognized, check the pins on the drive and the adapter (part of the caddy) and look for cold solder on the pins that connect to the MB. You may have to completely remove the mb to check the underside.

I'm having some charger problems. I had my charger plugged into and outlet and into the computer and it was working fine but once I unplugged it and moved my computer to a different place with a different outlet it stopped working. In the past, the light on my charger has stayed on even when not plugged in to an outlet or computer. The outlet is not the problem as I have tried plugging it in to multiple outlets. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I apologize for not giving much information; if any other information would be beneficial please let me know. Thanks.

I recently got an older dell laptop, and i have been having a problem during boot. Right before the BIOS finishes loading, i get a white screen that reads- "unknown device in system modular bay." I cant proceed beyond this point, so i just keep rebooting over and over until i get to my desktop. I unplug everything from it, and i still get this problem. any thoughts?

I don't know whether it's hardware or software issue or how to find out, I didn't know if I should post this here or under laptops.

It's a Dell Inspirion 2600 Laptop running XP Professional.

Basically, the thing will either randomly right click at the same time I left click (doesn't matter if I use the mouse or the touchpad), or it will randomly open the Start menu for no good reason. Sometimes this problems gets so bad, the computer is unusable. Other times, it works just fine.

Anyway, I keep virus scanning it and it comes out clean, I'm guessing maybe hardware issue, but I dunno.

I want to fix it myself because I am leaving to a job on a bus in exactly two weeks, and I need to bring a laptop with me and I can't buy a new one.

A:Weird Dell Laptop Issue

Are you sure that you are not accidently clicking the windows button to get the start menu popping up? As far as the right/left click action, make sure you are only touching the one bad. You could take a look at the buttons settings in mouse in control panel, but that doesn't sound like its the problem.

Hi I m having a particularly frustrating problem with my laptop s Laptop Dell on Wi-Fi Issue Windows 7 with Solved: wifi connection and couldn t find any other posts with the same conditions My Windows laptop has no problem finding a wireless signal and connecting Once I m connected I get full wireless bars and everything seemingly works fine for a few minutes At that point some pages will stop loading and others will partially load usually without pictures Eventually it will just stop working completely especially in firefox For some reason pages seem to load better in Chrome but Solved: Wi-Fi Issue with Dell Laptop on Windows 7 very slowly and sometimes not at all I ve already tried several solutions like renewing my ip address and flushing the DNS Sometimes doing that works for a small period of time but the problem always returns Winsockfix did nothing as well I ve reset and unplugged my modem and router countless times Using a wired connection on my network seems to work fine on the laptop I have another computer at home connected to my network through wifi that also worked fine I ve also been able to recreate this problem on my laptop through a wifi hotspot at work so I think the problem can be narrowed down to the laptop and not my router or home network It seems like it has to be a virus or firewall causing the problem but I ve turned windows firewall off completely and don t know of any others on my computer I also ran a full scan in Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and came up with one trojan that was successfully removed though the problem remains If anyone has ever dealt with this or has has any ideas I am open to suggestions Theres probably something really simple that i m overlooking Thanks in advance for your help nbsp

I have a Dell Netbook that runs on Windows 7. When I insert the charger in, it doesn't charge. Well, it usually doesn't. Sometimes, after I push it in really hard and twist and jerk it around, it works, but I have to keep it absolutely still. As you can probably conclude, this is a giant pain. The laptop and charger are about two months old. The charger shows no obvious damage.

This is the second time this has happened. It happened with my Compaq laptop back in May '09. This doesn't happen to my sister's laptop. Or my dad's. Do I have a charger curse or something?

A:Laptop charger issue for Dell NetBook

The Achilles heel of all PC laptops -- the ever weak, ever breaking power connection in the laptop. I've never seen a case where this plug was damaged that it was not caused by abuse -- pulling sideways on that connector when it was plugged in.

And in every case, the user denies they did such a thing; but, there it is, the irrefutable evidence.

It has to be either a damaged cord on the charger or a broken socket in the laptop. And it is quite an expensive repair if the damage is in the laptop, which it almost always is as the laptop must be disassembled completely and the main board removed in order to repair it.

Using a Dell laptop with Windows 7 - laptop has just died by undertaking a registry clean up using norton utilities. It won't reboot or restart and has tried repairing itself but can't.

Anyone any ideas? Unfortunately, it hasn't been backed up for a few months. Worst case scenario - just want to be able to get all the data off the hard drive and buy a new laptop.

Any help appreciated.


A:Issue with Dell Laptop & Norton Utility

If you have the installation DVD you could try a repair install which should not overwrite your data.

In order to access the drive you could put it into an external enclosure and copy the data to another PC. You could also use a linux live disc or symantec ghost to access the data.

Hello everyone out there, I'm experiencing a lot of trouble and difficulties with my laptop. I recently got a virus and the past few days I've been doing whatever I could to fix it and so I finally uninstalled the virus, but now, When I want to go on websites like on internet explorer or google chrome, it says different error messages. Mostly it says 'windows found a problem that cannot be repaired automatically, contact your internet service provider or network administrator for help or click here for information about things you can try to help resolve the problem'. My laptop says wifi is connected and it shows that it is, but I really don't know what's going on or what the problem is. I've tried everything! Can someone, anyone PLEASE help me out here!!!

My letter to Mr Michael Dell Dear Mr Dell I realize that there is an extremely small chance of this letter ever reaching your desk and I guess that is the reason I have never written a letter of issue or complaint to a company I have little faith that it will ever make a difference However I am so extremely disappointed at the moment and I feel I must do something for my own peace of mind I am a single mom raising kids alone I have desktop computers quot hand me downs quot from friends I have been able to fix almost every single problem that has ever occured with all my desktops I have replaced fans installed hardware set up a complete wireless networking system etc I understand this may not be impressive Laptop cord issue Power Dell to you but I have had no computer classes or nor have I ever been taught anything Six months ago I made the decision to purchase a laptop I was looking for small convenient and inexpensive This would just be a luxury for me to check email and have a few files on Dell Laptop Power cord issue hand for when I go somewhere I did a lot of research and talked to several Dell Laptop Power cord issue friends My brother has HP s and loves them but he started having problems with one of them it was TWO years old I wanted a more reliable laptop LONG story short I decided on DELL I purchased the Dell service tag MFXZ on Feb It has been less than six months and a few days ago I started having problems with the Dell Laptop Power cord issue powercord The connection became loose I would jiggle the adapter prong and it would be ok Last night it completely turned off and the jiggle would not work anymore I purchased a new powercord and it did not work I spent all morning on the phone with technical support and on the computer MY HP trying to figure out what to do I find out that my warranty ran out after months I was told that the mother board needs to be replaced and that it would cost I am in total and complete shock There is NO WAY even IF I HAD the money that I would invest that much more money in a computer that I do not believe in I have not even had the laptop for months lt gt I was using the laptop to create scrapbooks for my sons baseball team I had scanned over pictures that the parents had got together for me and I was supposed to have everything ready by Thursday Needless to say I never expected this situation to happen and I am not ONLY out of a computer but I have lost weeks of work and will not be able to have the scrapbooks in time for our party The saddest part of this whole situation is I DO NOT THINK IT IS THE MOTHER BOARD gt the back connection is loose it is the CONNECTION that will not let the power get to the computer and CHARGE the battery I tried to explain this to the DELL technicians and they proceeded to tell me that they were not authorized to tell me it is the connection and that they can give me a deal of to repair the MOTHER BOARD gt I just do NOT understand this I have been reading all the comments on the dell website community boards and it appears that this is a HUGE problem and I am not the only person to ever complain I know that my situation is no less more important than anyone else but I can t remember EVER being this disappointed in a product that I have purchased And for the service help I have received I will never EVER purchase another Dell and although I have never been a trouble maker or CRUSADER I will be sure that anyone ever needing a computer and asking my advice will NOT be advised to buy a DELL thank you for your time nbsp

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.

Hello I've owned this Dell XPS for around a year a half with no problems at all It has served Dell Sudden issues outbreak XPS of 15... with me well during my travels Sudden outbreak of issues with Dell XPS 15... up until recently Though I'm not sure if any of the issues are linked I figured it would be a safe bet to list them all out just to be safe It Sudden outbreak of issues with Dell XPS 15... first started a couple of months ago when my computer first froze for about seconds blacked out and came back displaying a warning that the Intel graphics driver had crashed something to that extent I thought nothing of it given it quickly resumed normal operation without a hitch This continued to happen maybe once a week but the quick recovery always followed Fast forward to three days ago I was downloading a game on steam Dead Space and browsing the web when I was hit with the same freezing though this time it lasted a little bit longer and ended with a blue screen I've gotten the blue screen once or twice before but nothing had ever come of it Just as before my computer quickly Sudden outbreak of issues with Dell XPS 15... re-booted and I resumed the download Stepped away for - minutes and came back to find my computer displaying quot Operation System Not Found quot I restarted my computer and was asked to select a source in which to load windows from I selected my hard drive and again it displayed quot Operation System Not Found quot At this point I had come to the conclusion that my hard drive had crashed To be sure I took out my hard drive plugged it up to a Seagate GoFlex adapter and plugged it up to another computer To my surprise I was able to fully browse all of my files and the hard drive worked with no problems I then plugged it back into my laptop and selected the quot Diagnostic quot option on the boot menu After having found no problems with itself my computer re-booted and loaded Windows as normal albeit a little bit slower Excited I logged in and immediately noticed a significant performance drop and a consistent quot freezing quot for - seconds occurring every - seconds Regardless I began to run a virus scan utilizing Norton which took considerably longer than normal and returned no results Frustrated I restarted to computer only to be met with the same quot Operation System Not Found quot display as before I re-ran the Diagnostics rebooted my system and found Windows again Suffering the same performance drop and freezing as before I downloaded AVG to see if it could find anything that Norton might have missed but returned nothing Now I am here I've tried everything that I can think of but still have not been able to identify what the problem is In games or while playing media the periodic freezing continues effecting everything including sound The quot Operation System Not Found quot warning displays every time I shut down or hibernate the system I've checked the processes and am not able to identify anything out of the ordinary CPU and Memory usage levels are normal and do not spike during the freezes Writing this alone has taken me minutes longer than it would have normally because of the damned freezing Any help would be appreciated

A:Sudden outbreak of issues with Dell XPS 15...


"Operation System Not Found"

That is actually Operating System Not Found, in other words, it can't find Windows Operating System. Freezing is usually caused by overheating, blow out all fans with a can of compressed air. Trying running the laptop without the battery, and just the power adapter.
What is the exact model # of your Dell XPS 15 laptop computer? Go to the Dell Drivers site type in your service tag # and download the Video/Display adapter driver for your model. That should eliminate the Blue Screen.
Go to Start/Search and type CMD Right click the CMD icon in the Search Results and Run As Administrator. In the Elevated Command Prompt type chkdsk /R and press enter. Now type a Y for Yes and Restart the computer. Check Disk will run at next bootup to test the HDD.
Try running the computer in a Clean Boot.
You can also download the ISO image for Seatools in my signature and burn the image to CD using IMGBurn also in my signature. Boot off of the newly created CD and run the Short and Long tests on the HDD. This may solve the problem, but if either one fails, then the HDD needs to be replaced.

I have a system with a Geforce GTX graphics card and a a aren't graphics sudden. supporting all monitors multiple of My cards Geforce GTX card which each run My graphics cards aren't supporting multiple monitors all of a sudden. monitors for a total of core AMD with gb ram Win A few days ago a plug-in for Adobe After Effects needed me to upgrade my graphics card drivers via a prompt and I allowed it to proceed Usually I DL direct from Nvidia After a restart several Adobe products up to date through CC began to crash on start-up Upon checking it seems the driver selected for me was not the current Nvidia I uploaded to that which yielded no better results The whole system was performing fine except the three graphics intensive Adobe apps all continued to crash on start-up Several days of troubleshooting with clean uninstalls re-installs of both Adobe and Nvidia got me nowhere Then yesterday after rolling back the Nvidia drivers with no luck I upgraded back to the The install went a little off and went into a black screen with a non-responsive mouse visible A hard restart brought the system on line and showing the driver had installed Again no luck with the program loads which had started the whole troubleshooting odyssey Many many pages looked at with many different suggested fixes I would have pushed my system back to a restore point before all this mess but it couldn t access the restore point Possibly an indication of something being out of whack My system has gone through multiple operating systems over many years and I decided this might be a good justification to clear everything with a clean OS install So I bite the bullet and installed Win to my SSD and started with a clean slate Windows pulled up an older graphics driver to load in and my system went from the one screen back to multi Next I fished out the and began installing that It started out fine then dove into the black screen A hard restart and it started entering a pattern where it would work for seconds then go to a black screen for a minute or so The mouse would also go into and out of responsiveness as if the OS was blinking on and blinking off The timing made it impossible to reboot in safe mode Since fast booting and an SSD made the keyboard shortcut unworkable After another reinstall of windows I saw the same problem reappear when Windows auto installed a version of the Nvidia drivers Finally seeing a mention of a similar problem being traced to multiple monitors I disconnected the other three monitors connected to the system and suddenly my system was working fine on a single monitor I installed the Nvidia driver and after rebooting just to check all was perfect on the single monitor set-up I tried hooking up one of the other monitors as a test and when I went to detect it my main monitor started going once again into the cycle of long black pauses I was able to regain monitor functionality by disconnecting the second monitor and rebooting but this is a very bad situation for me What might be causing my problems I thought it was the but even on older drivers it is not letting me work with more than one monitor now I would have thought the clean install of windows would have cleared away any conflicting code but no My cards have been solid so I didn t think it was hardware related I ve been on these monitors for years without problem What started as an error problem loading a few graphics intensive programs has now smothered my whole system Do you have any ideas of a possible solution or at least a way to diagnose the problem

I have zipped the entire WINDOWS_NT6_BSOD_jcgriff2 folder & PERFMON HTML file.



A:BSOD Dell 5010 & Sudden Shut down..please Help!!

Hello Saadleo, welcome to SF!

I suspect a memory error. Could be drivers but faulty RAM stick(s) is a possibility too.

Download a copy of Memtest86 and burn the ISO to a CD using Iso Recorder or another ISO burning program.

Boot from the CD, and leave it running for at least 5 or 6 passes.

Just remember, any time Memtest reports errors, it can be either bad RAM or a bad motherboard slot.

Test the sticks individually, and if you find a good one, test it in all slots.

RAM - Test with Memtest86+
Just in case... also check your Devices, specifically USB ports. Some device issues there in one of the dumps.

I'm running a dell inspiron 1545 (vista 32).

When trying to open the intel graphics driver properties it won't open (no error message)
When I try to change the display settings I get the error message "the currently selected graphics driver can not be used (written for a older version of windows)
When I run dixdiag I get the error that direct input isn't responding.
I tried to download drivers from intel but I got the error message that my machine doesen't meet the system requirements (I'm not entirly sure I picked the right software)

All the drivers from the dell site appear to do nothing and I've updated from direct 9 to 11.

Still no fix

If anyone can help me fix it give me your email and I'll gift you a itunes voucher or something, this problem is causing huge problems for me.

Much appreciated

Hi everyone,
I have a Dell Inspiron 15 3000 series laptop, and while I was using it tonight it suddenly turned off.
I know it wasn't because of overheating, because the computer was cool to the touch right after it shut off.
All I had open was Skype, and I was watching a video in Windows Media Player.
The specs: 4th-gen i7 CPU, 8gb ram, 1TB HDD
Devices plugged in: Samsung 21.5" monitor via HDMI, Logitech G430 via USB, Logitech G302 via USB, Acer keyboard via USB, Blue Snowball via USB.
The laptop was on AC power and was fully charged when this occurred.

What could've happened?

A:Dell Inspiron 15 3000 series sudden shut down?

Could have still been an overheating problem. The CPU has autosense heat protection and will shut it down and may do that even if the case is not hot to the touch.

I see a lot of USB ports being used, is this your usual setup? If you are watching a video, the USB mic did not need plugged in.

All was fine this morning, & then i turned my pc off!
This evening, i turned pc on & immediately, i got the black screen with what said as near as i can remember!

Windows cannot start, appologise for the inconvenience, probably to do with a software or hardware change & that i should start in safe mode or normally or like last configurations etc! I clicked last configurations & then got pc rebooting again & got the XP logo & the usual screen only then back to same black screen with the options!

This happened 3 times & then the 'blue, Welcome' windows screen appeared & it was checking all types of things & then 'touch wood' it started ok & i saw my desktop! But am scared of shutting down again!! as it may not restart!
I haven't done anything like changed hardware or software!

Can anyone advise!!

Over the last 2 days I have been having a problem as indicated in the title of this post. The fault has rectified itself 3 times, but again today, it is back to "battery plugged in, not charging." As I am running the laptop (Windows Vista Home Premium; 32 bit) on the adapter without problems, I assume that the adapter itself may not be faulty.
I also have a Dell Inspiron 630M laptop running Windows 7.  Can I safely use that adapter with the Vista laptop, without causing damage to the Vista ?  If it is safe to do so, and the battery on the Vista starts charging, then it would indicate that the Vista adapter/charger has some kind of fault.
Hoping someone can give me some guidance. Thanks.

A:Dell Inspiron 1545 laptop. Battery plugged in not charging. Can I use adapter from a Dell Inspiron 630M laptop ?

If the adapter has the same plug and the same or higher power rating, you can swap them.
Check to see whether the 1545 recognizes the AC adapter or whether it shows unknown (F2 at powerup).  If it shows unknown with two different adapters, you have a bad power jack or a bad mainboard.

That beep is coming from a 'diagnostic beeper" on the motherboard. Dell has beep codes that will help isolate what the failure was.

If you can post what the beep code is, for example 7 beeps or three beeps and then four beeps, etc maybe we can help. Or post the beep code on the Dell Community users forum, Laptop section. Laptop - Dell Community

Hello and thank you for taking the A pages and Sudden slowness possible up locking issue? time to help me We have a rather new laptop it runs Windows and we use the free version of Avast for security A few days ago almost a week now we have noticed that the computer is running much slower than usual One day when you would click to get on the internet it was fast and almost instant the very next day and A possible issue? Sudden slowness and locking up pages every day since then when you click to get online it takes an unusual amount of time before it opens We have also noticed the pages run slow and some of them will freeze up as well I ran the scans offered on Avast and through Windows and they say nothing is wrong but something is definitely different When we opened task manager this morning without being online the CPU usage would range from to percent at times not sure if that is relevant but it seems to be a lot when not running anything big and not online Any advice and help would be greatly appreciated Thank you so much Amber

Hi I'm hoping someone can help me out here because I'm majorly frustrated at this point Regardless of the device I use I can preview photos on the device and they are the correct color 'I'm losing my issue? this Photos or change - Is an a issue mind' graphics color They are also the correct color when viewed in paint photoshop or quicktime windows preview However they get fuzzy and green when viewed in a windows gallery or when uploaded to a site such as imageshack I can open the same file side by side one in photoshop and one in windows live photo gallery at the same time and one will be the right color and the other will be green Here are examples This photo appears blue to me Photos change color - Is this a graphics issue or an 'I'm losing my mind' issue? This one is slightly green and fuzzier The same file in the same format was used to upload both What really confuses me however is that I viewed the link to the green photo on a different computer and it looks the same as the blue one So as far as I know everyone who clicks on those links is thinking quot But they're the same and you're crazy quot Which is arguable depending on the crowd but they really don't look the same to me I'm using a Slimline s n with Windows Vista Home Edition and NVIDIA GeForce SE Graphics This is a fairly recent issue and is apparently inexplicably selective I have played around with saving the files in various formats but it doesn't make a difference and also doesn't explain why I view the same file in the same format differently depending on what program I use and when I upload it Anyone have any idea what's happening here

A:Photos change color - Is this a graphics issue or an 'I'm losing my mind' issue?

Hello, yes, they looked the same to me, as to why one program shows blue, and another shows green is weird tho.

So I'm having a very annoying issue At around pm last night my PC completely lost access to the internet It is definitely not my connection as the two other PCs in my house which are connected through the same router as mine still have access to the internet However if I use system restore and restore my PC to July about days ago my internet access works ZoneAlarm access Sudden issue) loss of internet the (not fine However if I wait another hours or so the same thing will happen and I have no idea what's causing it I'm running Windows XP SP The only software that I've installed in the past week or so is Belarc Advisor which I recently uninstalled and the Heroes of Newerth Beta client it's a game Other than that I have no knowledge of anything else installed on my PC I have attempted some fixes with no avail I've reinstalled my ethernet drivers I've done a complete scan of my computer Sudden loss of internet access (not the ZoneAlarm issue) using ESET Smart Security I uninstalled both of those applications that I previously mentioned Unfortunately none of it has worked and I have a feeling that my internet access will cut out again at any moment in which I will be forced to use system restore again And no I don't have any ZoneAlarm products installed Could that windows update possibly have affected other software Oh and one more thing I have also used system restore to an earlier restore point I think it was July th or th and my internet access did not work I have tried any restore points earlier than that but I found it strange that it works on the July restore point and not the earlier one

A:Sudden loss of internet access (not the ZoneAlarm issue)

assume you are connected with an ethernet line from this router not wireless in which case I suspect your network adapter on the motherboard maybe going bad if you are on a wired connection then try installing a standalone pci etherneet adapter. if you doing wireless...then try a different wireless network adapter that plugs inte a usb port...

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?

It all started yesterday when I was playing a game, which I've played since I got my laptop, and all of a sudden it started freezing out of nowhere until it got to the point where it crashed. Then the next day, I couldn't turn it on for 1 minute without it freezing and then crashing.

The last time I downloaded something was a month ago. I can't even delete any programs due to the freezing. It's only less then a year old so that can't be the problem. And it's an acer, which was really fast before all the freezing.

I even tried registry booster, and got rid of the few problems it had detected (since I didn't pay for it, I could only get rid of a few) and did nothing.

If anyone could give me some help, that would be greatly appreciated

A:Laptop is freezing all of a sudden

Can you boot in the safe mode? If so, try a restore point prior to the problem. Please do not use a registry tool. Unless you are very familiar with the registry, these tools can make things far worse.

If you can, please upload any mini dump files.

I tried to play songs in windows media player but it showed some error. Then i switched to VLC just to find out that there is some problem with the sound. When I clicked on the volume icon to see if the volume levels are ok, I found the computer icon, which appears there to be like as if there is a bug sitting on the computer. I don't know much about it. Can anybody plz help me out with it?

A:No sound from laptop all of a sudden

Go to the Device Manager, RIGHT click on the entry for your sound and then LEFT click "Uninstall". DO NOT uninstall the drivers. Restart the PC and when Windows starts it will detect and reinstall the sound. This will fix any Windows corruption (usually the problem).

I have a HP laptop dv6000 and I use the laptop for personel purpose. Yesterday when I used the laptop and put it in the sleep mode before i went to the bed. Today morning I got up and opened my laptop, I am not able to boot the machine. I also see that the power adapter is connected but still Laptop is not getting the power and the blue light in the power adapter connection port is not glowing ...  This is a very weird and bad experience for a user. I am not sure if all the dv6000 series users are facing this issue. please advise me how to fix this issue. thanks,hpuser_muthu

A:My HP laptop is all of a sudden not booting up

Unplug the power supply. Remove the battery.  Press the power button and hold it for 10 seconds.  Now, plug the power supply back in, and without installing the battery, press the power button and see if it boots. FWIW, if you are not going to use your computer for several hours, as in your case, it is far better to turn the computer off versus letting it sleep.  Sleep is meant for short periods.  If you do not wish to turn it off, consider enabling hibernation and hibernating the unit instead.  Your best option, though, is to turn the computer off when you go to bed. Sleep mode does maintaing power to the system, and data corruption can occur (which is probably what happened in your case). If this has been helpful to you, please return the favor by giving Kudos.
