Dear All,

this is my forst post here. I hown, since 2010, a Dell Vostro 3450 and recently upgraded to 8 GB RAM Memory from 6 Gb that were originally installed. The 3 years warranty also recently expired. I started experiencing several problems with the laptop and after talking to soome IT friends they all sugested to wipe everything and reinstaall the OS (Windows 7 Professional SP1). Because my recovery partition didn't work i had to use a different install of the OS (still a Win 7 Pro) and then install all the drivers and SP1. The Laptop is still slow and i have had several (3 only this AM) BSOD possibly all related to the dxgkrnl.sys but unfortunately i cannot locate the minidump folder under C:/windows/ so i cannot be entirely sure oof what is going on. I also went through the post at the following link [SOLVED] BSOD Due to dxgkrnl.sys but in my case replacing the MOBO is not an option at all. When checking the Windows Event Viewer i can see warnings, alerts, "Critical" and so forth all over the places.

I also found in the System Information an extremely long list of errors in the Windows Error Reporting page.

Moreover Windows Update is unable to install the following updates that appear to be important. Every time i restart the laptop the updates are there and fail to install:
1 - Security Update for Windows 7 for x64-based Systems (KB2868626)

Download size: 1.9 MB

You may need to restart your computer for this update to take effect.

Hello friends, first of all, my apologies if have something wrong with this post (is my first one), well, one of my clients bring to me one Dell Vostro 3450, the problem is; The Notebook turns on, but the BIOS don't show up, just a black screen appear and the cooler don't starts. The lights keep turned off and its just that. I press the power button and the black screen appear, the cooler doesn't start and the computer don't do anything, so guys please help me! Or just tell me what is the problem, then, i can explain what happen for the client! As usual, thank you guys, love you all! <3

A:Dell Vostro 3450 Black Screen Issue

When you press the power button, does the system remain turned on or does it go off automatically after a few seconds?
Does the system overheat? Were there any bluescreens / system crashes? Does this happen with or without the adapter connected?
Please check if there is any damage on the machine. Check if all the ports on the machine are fine or misaligned. Sometimes if the pins in the USB ports are touching each other, they are known to cause many issues on the machine.
Disconnect the adapter and battery and press and hold the power button for 30 seconds to release any static power. Then try connecting with the adapter only / battery only.
Press and hold the fn key + power button to turn on the system and it should initiate the diagnostics - check for any possible beep codes.
Run the LCD bist - Turn off the system and press and hold the "D" key + power button to turn on the system and it should run the LCD built in self test - see this link for more info - http://dell.to/1SkXNrG
Download the service manual here - http://dell.to/2iNJ0Q0 and remove the memory modules / HDD / ODD and try powering on the system and check if it works. 
If nothing works, I would suspect a motherboard failure. 
You could contact our team to get a quote for a paid service call - http://dell.to/1vnT6CQ 
You could also order the parts online here - http://bit.ly/2jjjluB

I have a Dell Vostro 3450 running Windows 10 and I have a issue with my laptop screen (please see the attached photo)  .

This issue comes only when I use my laptop screen sometimes and it goes away after some time but when I connect it to a external monitor the screen display works perfectly. I tried taking a screenshot of the laptop screen when this issue happens but the screenshot doesn't show this issue. What may be the problem and can this issue be fixed ?

A:Display problem in Dell Vostro 3450 (Horizontal colored lines)

Based on the troubleshooting performed if the display is good on external screen then the systemboard works fine. Now that the issue is seen only with the laptop screen I would ask you to initiate the LCD BIST( Built in Self Test) on the system.
To initiate LCD BIST restart the system along with the FN key pressed or restart the system and keep tapping the D-Key. During the test solid colours will be displayed on the screen if the distortion is displayed during the test its confirmed that the screen is faulty.

A:What graphics card should I for my Dell Vostro 200

Hi Jchoiboi17,Thanks for posting.Another user posted this information:If you are just playing CS:GO you can pretty much get any card that fits your budget, a Radeon 260x or a 750ti will work just fine with games on good settings. You could get a 960 if you are playing a range of games too however if its just CS:GO then either the 260x or 750ti is a great choice.Another user posted:  EVGA GeForce 8400 GS Hope this helps

A:Is the ATI Radeon 9550 / X1050 graphics card compatible with a Dell Vostro 200?

If the card will fit in the box it'll probably work for you. When I looked up Dell Vostro 200 they were built into two kinds of cases. There was one type built in a slim case and the other type built in a mini case. The mini case is much wider than the slim case. It looks like both types of cases sport motherboards with X16 PCI-E slots for adding an aftermarket video card. Trouble will arise if your 9550/X1050 video card has an AGP connector instead of a PCI-E connector, or you have a full size video card and a slim case.

Hey Tech Guy... Please help!

I rehabed a Dell Vostro 260 computer from work by re-installing Windows 7 Pro over the work stuff with the Dell OS disk. Next, I loaded all the necessary drivers from the Dell web site (network, sound, etc). Everything was working perfectly. Next, after all the dust settled, I upgraded to Windows 10 Pro and tried re-installing the Dell drivers again. Well, everything works great, except there is no sound. The sound driver (Conexant HD Audio) keeps failing when I run the Dell driver software. I tried deleting the existing sound drivers in Device Manager, deleting the driver folder (dell/drivers) after uninstalling the program through control panel. Please help! What can I do?

I have a Dell Vostro 1710,
I installed Windows 7 64 Bit and i'm having trouble finding the right video driver for my NVIDIA 8600 M GS. Dell Support recommends to install the Vista 32 bit video driver. I tried that, but the driver won't install, it says something that my OS isn't Vista. The driver version is this one: v / 24.06.2008 (R189832)
The NVIDIA official driver for 8600 M GS (v 179.48) for Windows 7 64 bits does not offer suport to Dell Vostro laptops and send me to manufacturer for drivers. I installed it anyway, but my system won't even start (I had to restore it).
Please help me with any kind of solution or sugestion.
Thank you.

A:Dell Vostro 1710 NVIDIA video driver for Windows 7 64 bit

Edit your post and remove the tag. That's not allowed on this user to user forum.  You can never use a 32 bit driver with 64 bit windows. You can only use the 32 bit driver with 32 bit windows 7--and sometimes that doesn't even work. Did you allow Windows 7 to find a compatible driver? Is the video card working now?  If it works with win 7, don't change the driver. You should have installed the 32 bit Win 7 for compatibility.

I have the above laptop and I just reinstalled OS with the OEM disc problem is hat I do not have the driver disc. I have been into my Dell and use the support assist to pick the drivers for my laptop. Problem is that it still shows a lot of drivers and many are not for my machine.

I did call Dell figuring that is I had to I would pay for the support and I was told that my laptop was considered "end of life" and they offered no support free of pad. But they did send me a link on how to use supportt assist to find the drivers whish is useless.

If I go into my device manager and click on the ones I need and open up the hardware info and number could someone direct myself to the correct drivers?

Needed are:
sm bus controller id pciven_8086&dev_1c2&subsys_04c51028&rev_05

quanticom atheros bluetooth bus  root\btath_bus

A:Vostro 3450 Win7 64 bit Pro Missing Drivers (support assist no help)

Install the drivers under "chipset" -- starting with the intel HM67 driver, followed by a reboot:
Under System Utilities, install the motion sensor driver.
For bluetooth and network, go to "Original Configuration" and identify the card installed.  Then install the corresponding drivers from the link above.  DO NOT just guess or try at random - you must identify the driver and install the correct one.

I have a Vostro 460 and I wanted to upgrade the graphics card. I just bought a Gygabye with nVidia GeForce GT 730 2GB GDDR5 card assuming it was going to work fine on this PC. Wrong assumption. It simply does not boot. It displays the initial POST but it doesn't go past it.
This video card is PCI-e 2.0. I tried to check prior to the purchase the PCI-e version of the Vostro's motherboard and with big effort I found in one the posts of this forum that it's 2.0 (it doesn't say anywhere, motherboard or manuals). Also, the minimum hardware requirements are met: minimum 300W power supply: the stock PSU is 350W. Cool!  But no so cool, it's not working.
The BIOS's firmware is up-to-date. I can't figure out what's the problem as the card is compatible with the motherboard. It should have worked first hand. And I don't think the power is a problem.
Any ideas?Thank you

Hi all,
I recently bought a Vostro 3668 i7 7700 that came with a R9 360 card. From a little search on the web I saw that the TDP for this card is 85W, so I thought that it wouldn't hurt If I buy a 1050 Ti with 75W TDP  (/w stock speeds no extra power cables) to replace it.
Is there anything that I should be aware off? Any BIOS settings? Does it matter that I replace a single slot card with a dual slot card?
I am currently looking at these 2:
ASUS Phoenix GTX 1050 Ti
Thank you for your help

A:Vostro 3668 new graphics card

Unless your applications require nVidia support, this is going to be a lateral move, not an upgrade.  Those two GPUs are pretty evenly matched in terms of performance.
Yes, it may matter in terms of size - many smaller cases like the one you have won't take a dual-slot card.

Ok ive scoured forums and websites but havent found my exact answer to this issue. I got a vostro 1015 free with a bit of a cracked screen(nothing to bad i cant work around till i order new one) but i installed win 7 ultamite and updated fully. Started setting it up for use with other 3rd party apps(mainly trying to setup android x86 through virtual box manager) when at first started blinking on charger led next day and wouldnt power up. Well finally got it to power but then sense it has been auto cutting stright off. And now it wants to boot to no screen sometimes others it boots up but post takes forever most times. Then other times it takes about 2 min before it even reacts to hitting the power button on.But almost every time it ether goes blank screen then powers off a couple min later or just shuts off entirely. Lcd test passed, cant complete diagnostics couse it cuts off right at end of mem testing so far. Ive systematicly taken ram,hdd,wifi,cd/dvd drive out and tried each time to boot. No success. Rarly can get a few sec in. WIndows before kill. Also i am aware i do have faulty battery(will replace) but i have also done these tasks of troubleshooting with and without battery and with a seprete charger. Any advice or idea i havent tried is much welcome....atm i have it dissassembled and checking all connectors. Also the power button broke off ribbin but got a spare to replace it.

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.

nVidia GeForce GT 730
nVidia GeForce GT 720

pci-e cards are tested by Dell and are compatible. GT730 is not tested.

If possible, please can somebody add a list of more modern cards that are tested as working with this desktop?

After Microsoft scanned and said my computer was ready, I downloaded W10 to my Dell Vostro 3550. ALL I RECEIVED WAS A BLANKED SCREEN. After visiting the Dell site I was informed I needed a new driver at a cost of $129.00. If I knew this from Microsoft in the beginning I would not have done the download at this time. do have any other options?

A:Driver for Dell Vostro 3550

Drivers don't cost money, I think you visited the wrong site or were offered a fee based support call with Dell.

From a quick search online it seems you need to update the BIOS to version A11 to resolve you issue: http://www.dell.com/support/home/us/en/04/Drivers/DriversDetails?driverId=N2KW4

You must hook up an external monitor to get a screen output from the laptop to perform the update, once done it should work.

Compatibility mode don't work and my touchpad is not installed.
Dell put on board (ALPS touchpads).
Is there anyone who have similar problem and fixe it ?

Sorry for my english !

A:Dell Vostro A860 - touchpad driver

Unless Dell decides to OFFICIALY support 64 bit on the A860 you will have to try alternatives.

Dell likes to re-use things/designs/spec between models to save costs.

I would try this one first (reported to work on Latutude D830)

Drivers and Downloads

I have not tried it yet on a Latitude I will be upgrading.

I strongly suggest you do an image backup or at least a restore point before the install.

Hello and welcome to TSG. Firstly, you might like to edit out your e-mail address in case the Spam brigade gets hold of it. All your replies will be through ths Forum.

Somewhere on the casing of your Dell machine will be the Service Tag reference number. If you input that at the Dell website, their system wil then identify your computer and tell you exactly what they put into it. Because they customise so much, they invented that system for just this purpose. Do that and you get the driver for the precise audio equipment they put in but, obviously, not anything you changed after buying it.

Hidy ho everyone,

I'm currently using my old Dell Vostro 260, with a single 8 gig stick of Ram, its stock 500 gig hard drive, and another 3TB mechanical drive.

My last machine's motherboard died on me, and I canabalized it for parts. I even managed to get my 500 Watt PSU to fit in this things case.

Now I'm still using my old GTX 560 graphics card. And would like to upgrade it to something with a bit more power while I save up for the parts to build a new rig.

Trouble is, I'm not sure about the dimensions of the cards I can fit in this case. My current card barely fits as it is. And most of the other cards I've looked at are 5-6 inches longer then this one is. The biggest problem is, the hard drive enclosure is in just the right spot to make fitting a longer card impossible.

Does anyone know where I could get a card thats more powerful then my current card is, and can fit in this case?

So about month ago I bough Dell Vostro 3568 i3 7100U w/ Intel HD 620. Everything working fine except one thing - whenever i try to run some game which uses Directx (for ex. Civilization V or VI) I get freeze, crash and error.
Errors are almost same: DXGI device failed... driver failed, Windows has blocked app from using graphic device..
Already tried repairing DirectX, reinstalling video drivers, updated bios, updating other drivers i found on dell website, but nothing helped. I looked on the internet and found that my integrated Intel HD 620 is capable of running DirectX 12 games.
Please help :(

Hello, I am installing Windows 7 on Vostro 3459 and I could find all drivers for the laptop, except this one :

Field Value
Device Properties
Driver Description Unknown
Hardware ID ACPI\DLLA6C2
PnP Device Dell Touchpad

Device Resources
IRQ 51
The Touchpad driver listed here does not install for this device :
Product Support | Dell US

But I can use the touchpad normally, but it shows on Device Manager that this device with the Hardware ID does not have driver installed.

Any solutions ?
