getting UPS 3.0 on an older Dell Studio XPS 435?

Q: getting UPS 3.0 on an older Dell Studio XPS 435?

I have a Dell Studio XPS 435 running Windows 7. It has several USB 2.0 ports. Is there any way to set this up so that I can operate at least one USB 3.0 ports? (If I need to add a card, please let me know).

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.)

Was given a Dell Optiplex 360 that I found out after getting a nasty virus had a bootleg XP OS
I also did not have any disks with it. I had older disks for a Dell 4600 that I used to wipeout the hard drive and install the new OS. Everything works fine except that I can not load any of the drivers from the second disk, (it was a 3 disk series)
thus at least at this point not able to connect with my cable internet. Cable people told me I needed the drivers.Any suggestions or can it just not be done.
Thanks, Al

A:Loading Older Dell OS To Newer Dell Computer

You will have to go to the dell website look under support and then drivers and downloads for your model of computer.If you use the service tag number on the computer it will make sure you get the correct ones you need. For future reference so you wont have this hassle again burn all of the drivers to a cd so you will be all set the next time.

whenever i switch on my dell studio 1737 laptop it wont go past the dell logo stage.
any help out there on how to fix the problem?
at the moment i am running a diagnostics test and seems like most devices are passing the test.

A:dell studio 1737 laptop wont boot past dell logo

It could be any number of things but my first 2 guesses are possibly the hard drive or might want to take it somewhere so that you will get a correct diagnosis.

If you are also running an Intel Core 2 Quad Q8200 processor and Intel G45/G43 Chipset I sure could use a copy of your driver for the SM Bus Controller.

Is it possible to use an older (2002) Dell OEM XP Pro CD which has either service pack 1 or 2 on it and then slipstream SP3 into it, and use it on a non-Dell computer only for repair functions, such as mainly running the system file checker tool, (sfc /scannow) ? The PC I do want to use it with is a 2006 Gateway desktop running XP Media Center Edition 2005, with SP3, which came only with a recovery DVD. This is because when I do try to run the system file checker tool, it says files are needed to be copied to the dll cache, and insert the XP Pro service pack 3 CD disk. This is due to Media Center is based on the XP Pro I believe.

Hello all, I'm newer to RAM and things like that and wanted to know before I buy if these sticks of ram will run in my Dell DImension 4700. I was hoping someone knew the specs of the stock motherboard and such because I have no idea what it is. THanks

A:Older Dell computer

Follow the instructions here so we can help you better:

Are you lookng to add RAM or just replace it?

According to google, the Dell Dimension 4700 has DDR2 RAM at 400 MHz. Both links you posted have DDR2 RAM at faster speeds, so while you can add both of them, I believe, they'll still run at the slower speed unless you take out the older RAM.

A:Reformatting older Dell

Boot from the XP CD, don't try to install when Windows is already running. You may have to go into Setup/BIOS to change the boot order if F12 won't let you select the CD/DVD-ROM.

Then you can delete/re-create the partitions, and install.

Note that some Dell's that shipped with 2 optical drives will only boot from one of them, usually the top one.

On a Dell, if some other OS was installed, the Dell "PC Restore" (Recovery Partition) is no longer valid (corrupted) and the only way to reinstall is with a Windows OS installation disc and then download whatever device drivers you need from the Dell downloads.

A friend brought me a dell dimension 4600 to re-install windows xp on and fix up for her to sell. The problem is I have no idea what it's worth. It only has 256 MB RAM. I have re-installed XP for her and have someone that's interested in it, but don't know what to tell her to offer for it. She would have to put memory in it first and foremost. I had to put a GB more in it to even work on it for her. Thanks for any suggestions.

Hi all

I had a bad stick of RAM causing BSOD's on my Dell Dimension 8400. (8MZQT51) I removed the offending componant and the computer is working fine now. Since I have to replace it, I figured I would upgrade at the same time. It had 1GB DDR2 RAM, in the form of 2 sticks of 512 mb, 533mHz PC2 4200, 240 pin memory. The motherboard has 4 dimm slots, it has a 3.0 g pentium 4 processor, and running a 32 bit system. Based on my research, I should be able to upgrade to 4GB max RAM, based on what I read on Dell's site for my computer.

Here is my question...will any 4 sticks of the same style 1GB, 240 pin RAM work, or do I need to concern myself with things like mHz, etc?

With the DVD/RW swap, you shouldn't have any problem, as well. Just make sure the jumpers match. If the old one is set to Master, the new one should be the same. The ribbon will be printed with the words Master and slave.

Hello SF!

Yesterday, i installed Windows 7 Home Premium on my sister's Dell Studio 1735, but there aren't W7 drivers for this model (Only Vista 32/64) and there are 2 devices i cant install cause WU can't find their drivers (Unknown Devices), i DO have the Recovery and OEM Partitions, to revert it to Win Vista, thing is i don't want to.. Win Vista STINKS!

So, there's any chance for me to actually install those 2 drivers? or should i revert it to Win Vista??

Thanks in advanced!

What devices are they? Look on the manufacturer's site for drivers. If you can't find any for 7, download the Vista ones. If they won't install, run them in compatibility mode for Vista.

I want to dual boot just incase Im doing anything hefty on mem (or just don't like vista.) Also, does anyone know if the ati mobility hd3450 is xp compatible?


A:Dell Studio XP Drivers?

A lot of prebuilt resellers are doing the whole "we're not offering Windows whatever drivers" hogwash on their websites, even if the hardware itself is compatible. I've found this with my laptop (Asus F3 series) and with my gaming rig (Asus M2N SLI Deluxe).

Usually, however, if you find the manufacturer of the hardware component itself, you can find some generic drivers or manufacturers drivers that will function.

Considering that Dell has a "switch to XP for $50" option on a lot of their desktops, I imagine you shouldn't have too much trouble.

As for your video card, there are a few sites that specialize in making generic drivers for mobile chipsets. The problem with mobile chipsets is that often a vendor will to lock you into using only their drivers, rather than the OEM drivers from ATI/AMD or Nvidia. That's why those third party sites exist.

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

A:Dell Studio won't boot to os

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

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

I need a new PSU for my desktop since the one that i currently have is only 350 watts and it makes really annoying fan noise.
You think this is a good deal and will it fit my computer?
500W Power Supply fo Dell Studio XPS 8000/8100 K159T PC | eBay
If you guys have any other suggestions feel free.
And sorry if this isn't in the right topic.

A:Will this PSU fit my Dell Studio XPS 8100?

It may "fit", but that doesn't mean anything.

At one time, most Dells used a proprietary wiring setup on their power supplies. For those PCs, you could NOT simply change to an industry-standard ATX power supply.

Dell has largely moved away from that practice, but a Google search implies that some Dells (possibly including the XPS 8100) still use proprietary wiring on PSUs. I couldn't quickly find definitive information.

So you may still need a "special" PSU for that PC and that may be what the Ebay dealer is selling.

But even then I wouldn't buy the PSU you linked. It's a no-name brand and you have no way of evaluating it nor do you know anything about its noise level (which I guess is one of your complaints).

I would:

1: Google to try to find definitive info on whether or not you need a "special" PSU for your PC.
2: If you do, I would then buy a standard ATX PSU along with a connection adapter designed to allow use of a standard ATX PSU in this particular Dell. The adapters are widely available for about $15. is one source for the adapter--among others.

I'd get a Seasonic or Corsair PSU that are known to have low noise levels. You may have to spend a bit more money.

On the other hand, you may find that your PC can use a standard PSU---in which case you would not need the adapter.

At any rate, I would not buy that Ebay PSU regardless. Go somewhere like Newegg as a source.

I'd also measure the existing PSU and make sure there are no space/clearance issues should you go with a standard PSU. For all I know, the Dell cases are very cramped or they may have even used a non-standard size as well as non-standard wiring.

You might contact forum member "Fireberd" about this. He has a lot of Dell experience and provides support on Dell forums.

A:Dell studio 15 overheating

In a perfect world, the parts would be perfectly flat, be placed in direct contact with each other, and no thermal paste would be used. As that is not the case, the thermal paste is used to fill the inconsistencies and aid in cooling. In other words, what you see is normal.

You can completely remove the paste from both pieces, reinstall more thermal paste (only a small amount is needed), and put them back together.

Having said all of that, as that model has always had overheating issues, there isn't likely much that can be done. Always use the laptop on a hard surface (ie: desk or table top), and you could use a cooling pad.

Hi mate,

The heat on a laptop is important but it depends for what purposes. As for you for little gaming, movies and internet in other words home use the heat won't be a big problem as the laptop will not on continuous running for long hours thus heat won't be a great problem.

Now for the Screen both are good and will satisfied you now choose the better price for you as both have good resolution and both are LED LCD meaning less power/battery consumption and less heat due LED LCD are not too much hungry as normal LCD screens.

Hope it helps.

Just after the October 22 release date, Dell posted some new graphics and other drivers for Windows 7. How can I tell whether they are needed, or should I assume that Windows Update takes care of making sure the latest drives are installed?

A:Drivers for Dell Studio

I like to work under the thinkg that if it isn't broken don't fix it. But if Dell has released specific 7 drivers for your system.You can check what driver is installed simply by going to device manager and clicking on that device and checking the driver detail tab. If your unhappy with the graphics prefromance now then I would probably install their new driver.

On Christmas night, I did as I usually did - turned off my Dell PC by holding the power button until it all turns black and went to sleep with the charger still plugged in AS USUAL.

Then the morning of December 26, my PC did NOT turn on - and guessing it "broke" with no apparent warning. I took out the charger, waited a couple hours, and plugged my charger back in, hoping there was a power-outage Christmas night. The charger light turned white, indicating charge was being put in, and then it turned off, indicating charge was finished - and my pc still DID NOT turn on!

I also have Mcafee Virus Remover, which automatically scans my pc and destroys viruses each and every day.

What the hell is the problem here!?

"I also have Mcafee Virus Remover, which automatically scans my pc and destroys viruses each and every day"...
In the real world this NEVER happens, it is only a wish. Who taught you to hold the power button to shut down Windows? You could have corrupted the hard drive. Have you ever used a mouse to select the Start button and shutting down the notebook that way? The motherboard could be toast too

Hello Eric1555, welcome to SF!

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

You are connecting a USB device that is causing problems (either the device, its drivers or the corresponding usb drivers.)
I suspect Creative Camera Class Upper Filter Driver....

You?ve got error messages on multiple USB drivers related to it. Please, as a test, disconnect, de-install the corresponding camera software and, if connected through a usb hub, disconnect that too.

Not sure if this is in the right category or not but here goes. The computer has been working fine until about 1/2 hour ago. The monitor goes VERY dim like in hibernation but will not 'relight'. If you reboot it comes on and works properly for about 5 minutes then goes dim again. The only way to get it back is to reboot. needless to say, this is a pretty useless way to have a computer.

Hi BeyondxFlatline
I'm currently experiencing the exact same thing on my Dell Studio XPS 13 laptop, and seeing the exact same scenarios as you describe. It seems the system locks up quiet randomly. Usually lockups like this happens when you run ressource demanding games, but this doesn't seem to be the case. I have been running hwmonitor ( to check if i could see any heat related symptons and eventhough this laptop seems to have higher temperatures than usual, they don't seem critical to me. I have experinced my laptop freeze when; when the system has been idle and i have returned and moved my external mouse, other seemingly random moments and even when running dell diagnostics . I have also experienced that my system won't bootup after it has froze and that i needed to wait a little while before i could boot it again. I haven't talked to tech support yet, but it seems it might soon be a good idea.

I bought a Dell 1745 Studio with Windows 7 in January. I played with it and try out different programs etc - basically experimented to see what programs I wanted and didn't want. Anyway I decided to do a Recovery to Factory Image. this was 2 days ago. I updated a lot of bios, drivers etc from the Dell site but I think maybe I should of been more selective about what I updated because I am now haveing huge problems with IE freezes along with Windows 7 freezing up. So I am wondering if I could do another recovery and be a lot more selective about my updates etc. Would this use up more memory or as I was told Window 7 doesn't use up extra memory. Also I am not a gamer I use it to design quilts, watch videos, etc... Please can someone help me out - THANKYOU......VERLON56

Hi Verlon and welcome to the Forum
Before doing another restore try going to the manufacturer of the various components for driver updates rather than using the Dell site. To get a complete detailed list of all your components download and install the very good free Belarc advisor from here: Belarc Advisor - Free Personal PC Audit
This will give you all the detail you need.

I have a 6 month old dell studio 1535, and since I turned it on this morning the keyboard has been unresponsive. I tried to just restart, but it did no good. I sign in through a built-in fingerprint reader, so i'm not sure if the keyboard stops working after sign-in or if it doesn't work from the start. Everything else seems to be functioning normally- no error messages, the touchpad is fine, and the laptop itself doesn't feel overly warm to the touch after running for 2 hours or so.

details: Dell Studio 1535 - Intel Core 2 Duo T5750 processor - 250G hdrive - windows vista - basic built-in keyboard (not backlit)

I'd appreciate any help or advice you can give- thanks, guys!

This one is pretty straight forward ... Memory Coruption ... to check your memory, download a copy of Memtest86 and burn the ISO to a CD using Iso Recorder. Boot from the CD, and leave it running for at least 5 passes. If it reports any errors, you probably need to replace the modules...

Hi all,
I received my laptop two days ago and for two days i got a weird, glitchy BSOD. I tried updating the graphics card drivers and BIOS yesterday but today, unfortunately, it happened again, the same weird glitch looking blue page and then a restart.
Attached are the two minidumps. Hope any of you can help me.

A:Dell Studio 1558 - BSOD once per day

The dmp(s) point to ntkrpamp.exe or ntoskrnl.exe as the probable cause. We know this is not the case, as these are core OS files, and will definitely not cause a BSOD. They are just the default files the debuggers blame when they can't see a better cause. Enable driver verifier using the following procedure..

- Go to Start and type in "verifier" (without the quotes) and press Enter
- Select "Create custom settings (for code developers)" and click "Next"
- Select "Select individual settings from a full list" and click "Next"
- Select everything EXCEPT FOR "Low Resource Simulation" and click "Next"
- Select "Select driver names from a list" and click "Next"
Then select all drivers NOT provided by Microsoft and click "Next"
- Select "Finish" on the next page.

Reboot the system and wait for it to crash to the Blue Screen. Continue to use your system normally, and if you know what causes the crash, do that repeatedly. The objective here is to get the system to crash because Driver Verifier is stressing the drivers out. If it doesn't crash for you, then let it run for at least 36 hours of continuous operation (an estimate on my part).

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

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

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

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

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

Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks everyone

A:BSOD on Dell Studio 15 1558

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

Having a very weird issue with my Dell Studio 1555.

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

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

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

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


A:Dell Studio 1555 Conking Out?

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

I have a Dell studio laptop that keeps rebooting. I turn it on an it gets to the Dell logo and then reboots. You can select the F2 setup option or the F12 Boot options but this does nothing. If I select F12 then try to select diagnostics it reboots, whatever option it just reboots. I tried to start it in safe mode by pressing delete this did nothing just re-booted and also pressing F8 again nothing. I tried to boot the Dell windows CD that cme with the laptop but nothing it sounds like its trying to start but reboots before anything happens. Pleas can you help me.

A:Dell Studio laptop keeps rebooting

To boot from the Dell Windows CD you need to go into BIOS Setup (F2) and set CD-ROM as the first boot device.
When exiting BIOS Setup be sure to save new settings (it will prompt Y or N (Yes or No), press Y then Enter key.

I'm working on a Dell Studio 1745 (Windows 7/2X2GB DDR3 memory) which would blue-screen on boot and beep four times. I removed and replaced the memory modules one at a time and found one module was defective, but computer would boot and run with the one good 2GB module. I ordered two new matched DDR3 2GB modules. With both new modules installed, the computer will boot then blue-screen within two minutes. I can install either of the new modules in either slot and the computer will boot and run flawlessly, but installing the second module causes it to blue-screen and shut down almost immediately. Any ideas will be immensly appreciated.

Dell Studio Fingerprint ID + UKASH
Hoping some wise soul has an answer I don't. I have a Dell Studio with fingerprint ID which is what I always used to log on. There is also a password option.

The laptop is a family laptop, children have changed password but forgotten. No problem as my fingerprint still works.....right up until the UKASH malware locks it up. I'm aware that there are ways of remedying this problem in Safe Mode....however the fingerprint ID feature does not appear to be available to log onto the computer in safe mode.

Does anyone have any idea if indeed I can somehow log in with fingerprint ID in safe mode so that I can address the malware issue? I'm so frustrated and perhaps may have to pay someone to help with the issue, but I thought I would try here first. Any ideas are sincerely appreciated.

Thanks, Kerpry

Hi there,

I have a dell studio 1558 laptop with windows 7 home premium. I have an issue wherein windows 7 restarts itself. It does throw a BSOD but I can't capture/see that as it immediately restarts after that. I read somewhere in this forum that i should uncheck the option "automatically restart on system failure" in system properties. But i can't even do that because the system restarts even before I get the login screen.
Same behavior is seen in safe mode. I tried almost all the options that appear when you press F8 key while booting. Any assistance in resolving this is greatly appreciated. Thanks.
