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/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

My laptop (Dell Vostro 3560) currently has a 500gb HDD and i want to replace it with a 250gb SSD ( SAMSUNG 850 EVO 2.5inch). SO my question will the laptop be compatible with the SSD ??
Thanks

A:Compatibility of an SSD with DELL VOSTRO 3560

Yes -- though if the hard drive is 9.5 mm in height, you may need a spacer to mount the SSD (which will be 7 mm in height).

What you've been told is correct - the exception being that if the data is critical, it can be retrieved by a forensic data recovery service.  It'll cost you $600 or more but if it's worth that, send the drive to a recovery company.

My DELL Vostro has proved to be very reliable - and I have successfully used the DVD drive to load software from CD-ROMs in the past. However, when I just tried to play a DVD I bought in London, it would not work. Does this mean there is probably a fault with the drive - or that there's an issue with the DVD ? (I know that the DVD works fine in a regular DVD player.)

Hi dualquad,

I’d suggest that you follow the steps mentioned below and check for issue resolution.

Switch off the computer.
Disconnect the AC adapter from the system.
Remove the battery from the computer if it’s connected to the system.
Press and hold down the power button for 15 seconds.
Then connect back all the peripherals and check if the beep codes disappear.
In addition, I would suggest that you run the diagnostics on the computer by following the steps mentioned in the video below and check if there is any issue with the hardware on your system.

Hi, I have a problem with System Password of my laptop.
I would disable the functionality to change boot device. I did this:
1) enabled "bios password"
But i see that this ask password to acces bios, but not disable functionality to change boot order.
2) I enabled also "System password" but I saw it was too much...
So I tried to disable "System password". System asked be "current password" I added and also new password and confirm... i pressed both time "enter" and suppose to disable passowrd.
Save -> exit -> restart
System asked me again password before boot device.....
I enter again in setup and disabled also "Bios Password" and i see on video first 2 line of bios that report
Bios Password    not installed
System password  not installed

But system again ask me "system password"

We got two new Dell XPS 13 for users and there does not seem to be any video out ports like on previous models.  This runs Windows 10 Professional and has an internal screen resolution of 1920x1080.  Looks like there is 2 USB 3.0 super speed ports and possibly a (thunderbolt)??? port?
I've heard of USB-C so I'm not sure if this one port on the left side is that, or if its thunderbolt.  I googled thunderbolt to hdmi adapter and in all the images I find it always shows a mini display port on one end despite the descriptions saying thunderbolt.

So whats the cheapest way to get HDMI out on this laptop?

The Thunderbolt( USB Type C port) on the Left Hand side deals with the video output on the system. You will need to purchase a USB Type C to HDMI adapter to display video.

Hello,

I'm a long-time happy DELL laptop user. using products of yours in home and at work. I referred dell laptops to all my friends including my Dad. He bought Dell Vostro 3560 and just after waranty is over it is dead. It wasn't congested and it was used on normal daily basis on the table, fans were working and wasnt covered then switched off and never went back . Since then it won't turn on i have checked and seems like mainboard is burned so probably there is nothing i can do with it anymore? Looking for help since we can't afford new one before christmas :( Did someone heard about factory defects in that Laptops? Could support help in any way ? 

A:Factory defect on Vostro 3560?

Not at this point, no -- if the warranty just ended, it must have had at least a 3 or 4 year extension - this system was current about four years ago.
Most manufacturers consider anything over 3 years as end of life (in fact many won't allow more than a 3- year warranty -- Apple among these).

I have a dell vostro 3560 laptop, which stopped working. When connecting to the ac, the adapter light turns off  and laptop won't power on, also without the battery. While searching out the net, I found out that the motherboard is probably short circuited. I didn't open the laptop yet, but what's happening is that when the light is blinking on the adapter and turning off. I would like to try to fix the motherboard myself, since nobody is offering such a service anyway, at least not in INDIA, and I don't want to spend extra money. My question is that from where should I start to look for the problem? And does anyone have experience with such an issue before?Thanks.

A:Vostro 3560 Motherboard circuited

The first thing to do is replace the DC power jack, which may well solve the problem.
www.amazon.com/.../B00GX4KK20
If it doesn't, the troubleshooting and repair of a mainboard are well beyond any home repair effort unless you have the diagnostic and repair tools -- oscilloscope and surface mount rework equipment.  Even turning the board over to a professional for such repair will almost certainly cost more than simply replacing the board will, particularly if you can provide the labor for board replacement.
The other consideration is that a board will likely cost more than $200 -- a significant spend on a system that's at or over three years old.  That's your call, but it may make more sense to put the cost toward a replacement system.  Any board repair/replacement will carry at best a 90-day warranty, vs. a year or more with a new system.

Hi all,
I am a proud owner of Vostro 3560 ( i7 Q, 8GB, ATI 7670M HDD+SSD).
But something is really wrong with my notebook. The issue is as follow:
I have chosen from Power options to turn off the display after 5 minutes ( tried also with more. )
So after 5 minutes, the display is turned off. I am moving my mouse to turn it on, but it doesnt show anything. Just the backlight is diplayed ( the screen become more lighter ), The notebook remains responsible, but nothing is showed on the screen. I have tried couple of driver versions ( original, latest, middle version. ), also its happening on Win 7, 8, 8.1. I have played around almost every setting that could be changed. Nothing in event log.
The only way to fix this is to turn off the laptop / put it in sleep mode and then turn on from power button.
Can you advice on what could cause this ? Or where should i look for the problem ? It might be related to power options or VGA ? Anyone with same problem?
Thank you!

Start by attaching an external monitor - is there an image on that?
Does the screen pass its built in self test (hold D through powerup - you should see a series of alternating color screens)?  
If you don't see the alternating screens, it's likely the screen is bad.  If you do, it's likely the GPU is bad.

I have gone to the Dell website and used the tool to detect and install driver updates.  The tool will attempt to install a driver, Intel Management Engine Interface Driver.  The tool says it installed, but subsequent checks show the driver as needing to be installed.

All USB ports worked fine with Win10. 
Win7 was installed from a USB stick but I had to enable "USB debugging" in BIOS before windows would load.  Even with debugging enabled I could only use one of the USB ports.
Now, with Windows 7 and all drivers and updates, the only USB port that works is the one that the system was installed from.  It also happens to be the only one with the lightning icon beside it.  I just tried disabling the debugging option in BIOS and this port stopped working also.
I have tried multiple USB memory devices and a mouse.  Regardless of the device, the same port always works and none of the others do.  If the mouse is plugged into one of the dead ports during boot, the red light is on at the bottom of the mouse until a few seconds after I see the windows logo appear.
Memory sticks will light up on every port but Windows never recognizes anything being inserted.
No issues appear in the device manager and there are no unrecognized devices.

On a previous setup of this OS, I tried uninstalling all USB related devices from the device manager then scanned for changes.  I hoped this would reset all the drivers and bring the ports back.  Instead, it began loading the drivers, blue screened with a memory dump, then never recovered.
This PC also has an SD card slot that appears to be a USB connected device and it works.
Any help will be appreciated.

The only sure thing is an exact replacement.  Next best is to buy a screen known to have shipped with the same model system you have.
Notebook LCDs are not as standardized as other PC parts - you can easily find variances within the same model line where one system will take a specific screen and another will not.

The projector is fine, worked yesterday for several hours on VGA.

The cable is fine, worked on my wife's Dell notebook for at least 1 hour.

My power options are probably fine, because everything is set to "highest performance".

I have recently purchased 2 Dell U2417H monitors with the hopes of connecting them to my Dell Vostro 420 PC. I tried connecting it to the HDMI port that was covered by a black cap on my tower but it did not work. Will I need adapters of some sort? Is my video card not up to speed? Any help would be appreciated.

A:U2417h Monitor will not connect to Vostro 420 PC

If the port was covered it is because you have a separate video card that is used instead of the integrated video. (Both integrated and separate video cannot be used together)What video card do you have? If the card has a DVI port you can add a DVI to HDMI cable for one of the monitors. However your card must support dual monitors with dual dvi or hdmi ports to add a second one. Consider upgrading the video card to one with dual monitor support. I would buy a new computer to replace the old Vostro.
You could remove the video card to switch to the integrated video and use the hdmi port but the quality of the display is not as good and only one monitor can be used.

If the monitor has a VGA input (D-sub) it will work.  That said, be reasonable with your expectations - you may get away with using the monitor for browsing the Internet or word processing/spreadsheet use, but don't expect to be doing any gaming or watching video at FHD on it -- while the monitor can handle those, the computer you have is far too underpowered for that.

Is it simply a power supply issue (the external monitor  does not have a power cord)?  Anything I can do?  It does it even if I have the laptop plugged in and charging.  
*something interesting - I just discovered if I duplicate the display and not extend the flickering goes away...but that kind of defeats the point of a dual monitor for me.

What is the exact system model? 
Have you connected the external monitor to a dock or hub or directly to the system USB port?
Update the BIOS - http://dell.to/1n3X2po - enter the service tag and download the BIOS, update and restart the machine and check.
Reinstall the video drivers and chipset drivers for the system from the above link and check.
Also, please click my DELL-username and write me a private message with the service tag and your Name for case records.
Let us know if you have any other queries.

Hi everyone,
I have a new hardware:

Dell XPS13 (9360) with Thunderbolt 3
Dell U3417W 34" monitor  (3440x1440 px)

I have prepared everything on my table because I had no idea that new Dell only has Thunderbolt 3 and no mini display port. I was kind of surprised (in a bad way) that I will need another reduction.
The problem is that I can only input display port, mini display port and HDMI into the new Dell U3417W monitor. I am not sure how much resolution I can squeeze from HDMI, so what is left are those display ports. 
Should I buy USB-C -> Display port cable like for e.g. Startech USB Type-C to Displayport cable, 1m (CDP2DPMM1MB) which could possibly do the job? Or perhaps even some Thunderbolt 3 cable?
I need to have 3440x1440 px @ 60 Hz where some of those cables support only @30 Hz and they do not explicitly state that 3440x1440px resolution is supported.
I would rather avoid those bugged Dell docking stations where the whole internet (e.g. Amazon) is snowed by users complaints.
Thanks in advance for any help!

Forgive me - I know nothing about computers, so am probably going about this completely wrong, but I'm hoping you can guide me to a successful outcome.
I have a Dell Inspiron N411z laptop (with HDMI and usb ports) and a Dell 1703PF monitor (with DVI and vga ports).
I've tried an HDMI to vga converter, with a vga to vga cable into the monitor - didn't work.
am new to the here, I have worked with multiple firms. you can check mobile App launch video one of my work.Thank You !

I have had a Yoga 2.13 for 2.5 years and have, in the past, connected to a couple of 24" monitors using the HDMI port and cable.   For the past three months, I was on the road and never used an external monitor.  Now, I try to connect to a monitor that I used before, with a cable I used before and the monitor does not detect a signal. I have tried another monitor with the same cable. Still get the messsage "no signal detected". I have switched to two other cables - same issue. I have updated the Intel graphics driver, etc. I have spent several hours updating various drivers, etc. I suspect one of two things: 1. I may have upgraded to Windows 10 in the last three months and that is the cause of the problem. 2.  The micro/mini HDMI port on the Yoga is dead. Any ideas on what to do next?
