Dell Studio PC won't turn on

Q: Dell Studio PC won't turn on

Hard Drive: 320 GB
Memory: 4 GB
How old: 8-9 months

[EDIT]Model: Dell Studio 1558

*Intel Core i3 Processor
*Windows 7 Home

Problem:

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!?

Preferred Solution: Dell Studio PC won't turn on

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

"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

Are there any 'Beep's, if there are, please post the exact sequence of them?Does the power supply fan run?

Just pick the operating system you want to use, partition and format the hard drive using the OS install disc. Install the Intel D865PERL motherboard drivers and go to AMD/ATI website and get the Radeon 7000 driver from there... easy!

Hi Guys and Girls.

When I connect my camera to my PC, I usually use Canon Zoombrowser to downlaod my pics.
However, the Intelli Studio program autoruns as soon as I connect, it then starts loading all my pics on the PC........

How do I stop it from autorunning please?
I can't find the prog in the Add/Remove, AFAIK the program came with my Samsung camera, but the only Samsung program I can find is for my EHD.

Any ideas or fixes please.

Many thanks in advance.

I have MS Visual studio 6 installed on my PC, and whenever an IE page has an error on it (like undetermined string constant for example), an error message will popup saying to click yes to debug or cancel. If you click yes (which I constantly do accidentally), it will close the IE windows and open up the debugger, which is then a hassle to exit out of.

This is very annoying and slows down browsing the web, so is there a way to turn off the debugger so it does not check for errors or anything when using IE, and so no error messages pop up?

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.

"launch start up repair" which is highlighted. it counts down and then automaticly
starts.

then the message is "windows cannot repair this automaticly"
then i am given the option to send info to microsoft
it doesn't seem to matter if i send or not. the start up repair menu remains
asking "if you have reciently attached an exterrnal device, mp3, camera ect.. contact admin if you keep seeing this message."
"click finish to shut down your comp."
2 options are at bottom of menu top one says "view diognostic details
the bottom one says "view advanced options for recovery and support"
clicking on either seems to just result in a frozen screen and the compter never boots up.

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.

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?

If you guys have any other suggestions feel free.
And sorry if this isn't in the right topic.
Thanks

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. Endpcnoise.com 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.

Cheers
 

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.

I'd worry about the other components of your laptop more than the video card.

Had to reinstall Windows Vista OS and of course lost everything. Reloaded the Drivers and utilities CD. Now cannot connect to my home network. ?This computer does not have a network adapter installed and configured?. Went to device manager and under the ?other devices? tab, everything under it has the yellow exclamation marks. Also the display is not right. Under the ?display adapters? tab the ?Standard VGA Graphics Adapter? also has the yellow exclamation mark. I have disabled and enabled all of them to no avail. Also checked the services and they seem to be started. Not sure exactly which ones should be started but all the ones about networking are running. Home network is working because I have other devices running from it just fine. I?m a little overwhelmed at this point. Also trying to sift through the archives at the same time. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

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!

A:Dell Studio 1735

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.

Even when plugged in, when I hit eh power button, the light sequence on the keyboard lights, but after a few seconds only the volume button remails lit. Then, after 20-30 seconds, even that light goes out and the sound stops. The screen is dead black the whole time.

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).

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.

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.

Do the vista drivers work for 7 as well???

In most cases, Vista drivers will work for Windows 7 as well. However, you might like to try a clean installation - the DVD contains many more drivers than the one for Vista, and you might not actually need any others.

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.

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?

Hi Guys,

I'm getting a dell studio, but want to dual boot with xp. The only thing is I've read its a heck of a lot easier when u have vista disc to repair bootloader. Do you know if the del studio comes with disc, or just HDD partition backup. I haven't seen a clear answer on this so far and if you don't get it its just a pain. You should always get a disc of the OS in my opinion.

Cheers
 

A:Dell Studio come with Vista disc?

You will need a separate copy of Vista

Hi,

My laptop's just started playing up...three times in three days now I've had BSOD's.

Please find attached the .dmp files, any help gratefully received.

Regards,

A:Dell Studio 1747 BSOD

ZoneAlarm firewall is the cause of all three of your BSOD's

Uninstall then run the ZoneAlarm remover to clear up any leftovers.

AVG is also notorious in causing BSOD's on some Winows 7 systems. If BSOD's continue after ZoneAlarm removal, suggest uninstallng AVG, afterwards run the relevant AVG Remover for your system in Safe Mode. Download BSOD friendly Microsoft Security Essentials as its replacement.

Try to find updates for these older drivers from your PC or mobo manufacturer, or through links:

My situation is similar to one posted earlier. The laptop goes through the normal boot sequence right up to the mouse pointer on a black screen, and hangs. If I leave the computer at the black screen and pointer it eventually goes to screen saver mode.

I have completely booted the machine using a flashdrive with linux to run an antivirus scan, but windows will not boot.

I have thought that a factory restore is in order, however, when I go to the advanced Boot options menu the "repair your computer" option isn't there.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. BTW this computer is not mine, it was brought to me to clean up...obviously needs more than a cleaning.

A:Dell Studio 1535 won't boot

A couple more things, I have tried booting into safe mode with the same results. The other advanced options all resulted in the same situation.

Thinking I could run SFC if I got to a command prompt, but no love. This system hangs every time in the same place.

My anyone Windows Studio from 540 10? Dell 7 Has updated to a daughter has a Dell Studio running Windows Home Premium -bit and she's been asking me if it's OK to upgrade to Windows Since I live several hundred miles from her I didn't Has anyone updated a Dell Studio 540 from Windows 7 to 10? want to tell her to go ahead until I had a chance to check things out and now I'm wondering myself what to do I fired up some Dell utility for drivers and updates and it came back with a message that said the Studio had not been tested for compatibility with Windows and if an upgrade was attempted things might not work Of course that doesn't really mean they won't it only means that Dell hasn't tested anything and they're covering themselves just in case Now The Windows Upgrade Icon is in her system tray and it says that the machine was tested and found to be compatible with no issues found so drivers might exist from Microsoft So has anyone upgraded a Dell Studio If so what if any problems did you encounter

A:Has anyone updated a Dell Studio 540 from Windows 7 to 10?

Microsoft is often provided with drivers not designed specifically for the computer, which means updating is risky. It probably will work, but you always run the risk of crashing, or small problems like it having a hard time coming out of sleep mode, etc.

If she really wants it, she can try it out, and revert back if it doesn't work in month provided to revert.

To remove the tray icon, do this: Get Windows 10 Icon - Remove from Taskbar in Windows 7 and 8.1 - Windows 10 Forums

Sorry for another dell studio post only a day after last one, but I'm really thinking of getting this, and then my friend's girlfriend got one and he said the sound from the speakers is rubbish... Does anyone know if this is true (compared to general laptop speakers that is) or perhaps does he just have unrealistic expectations?

I've read a few reviews saying they're bad, but some otherwise. Unfortunately don't think I'll get chance to hear them before i buy. Don't know if its enough to put me off buying, but would like to have decent speakers. To put it in perspective, I currently have an old (I mean oooollllddd) latitude, which doesnt have amazing speakers, but is acceptable.
 

A:Poor Dell studio Speakers?

didn't have the chance to hear a studios sound but you really should decide this yourself. maybe you can have a look at your friends girlfriends studio and listen what it is like.
its always difficult to tell and my desktop user always complain the sound when they use a laptop for traveling, just because they have external speakers on their desktop pc's and are used to this kind of sound...

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.

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).

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...

A:Dell Studio 1558 will not start

Hi MISC3389,
Are you using an original Dell OEM Adapter? When you plug in the adapter to the system, does the adapter stay firm or does it fall off easily? Is the adapter frayed?
Something is causing the short circuit on the system and hence the issue.
Three components could be isolated to cause this issue: Adapter, DC port and motherboard.
So, try another adapter. If the issue is the same, then replace the dc port - you would need this part - http://bit.ly/2bZgPXB
If the issue still persists, then the motherboard needs to be replaced. 
Presuming there is no warranty, then you could contact our team to get a quote for a paid service call - http://dell.to/1vnT6CQ
Personally, I would suggest you to invest your money in a new machine than to repair this machine. 

Also, please click my DELL-username and write me a private conversation with the service tag and your contact details(Name and Email) for case records.

Let us know if you have any other queries.

I do like to think of myself as at least somewhat competent with computers however I have run into an issue with trying to format a friends laptop. The usual <f11> at startup does not seem to be running the Dell factory restore tool. Also <ctrl> + <f8> won't bring up the boot menu.

The interesting thing with this laptop is that the <f#> keys are all Fn keys (that is the <f#> part is blue and the media controls seem to be the primary function of the keys). Any ideas on how to get through to be able to restore this laptop to factory 'as-new'?

It is probably something stupidly simple but so far the great powers of google have failed me.

Hopefully that makes the issue clear enough.

A:Re-format a DELL Studio Laptop

Welcome to Windows Seven Forums.

The first thing you need to check is whether your friend's laptop still has the Dell recovery partition on the hard drive.

If it hasn't then you need to use Dell's recovery discs or a Windows DVD.

I purchased a new pc for the express purpose to play SC2 and Civilization 5. I got the a Dell Studio with windows 7, intel core i7, 8gig ram, and the evga geforce gt 240. When playing both games the screen will randomly (some times i can get through 30mins, some times only 5mines) go black and freeze. Nothing works but a cold reboot. At first a minimizing would work, but now not even that. I've made sure my drivers were\are up to date but that's not helped. Any ideas?

What operateing system is installed now?

If you have the Dell System restore ( not all Dells do ) you can use that and you will not need a install CD

Dell - Technical Support

If not, You can get a reinstallation guide specific to your Dell here ( You will have to change the operating system to match yours.

You can request a replacement instalation cd here:

Hi,

I got a del studio about a month back and have installed creative media organiser to play my music through cos windows media player has become a memory hog, and just wondering, is there any way to set up the capacitance buttons on the studio to work with this media program like it does with windows media? (i.e. the play, stop, next and previous buttons)

Thanks

Jonny

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

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...

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.
