Where to send suggestions for Dell Precision 7510 Laptops?

Q: Where to send suggestions for Dell Precision 7510 Laptops?

Hello,
I have been a long time fan of Dells hardware for servers, desktops, midrange laptops, and my own favorites, the Precision line laptops since the late 90s. I am a CTO-like figure that consults for several companies simultaneously at any given time considering my wide range of technical backgrounds is sort of hard to find all in one experienced person willing to travel to your far flung locale.
That being said, I'd like to make a few suggestions because I don't plan on buying the Precision line for our developers or myself in the future as a result of one particular bone-headed change that are making life very difficult me and my teams.

- Offer an optional keyboard for the Precision-line units (CRITICAL)
The original earlier keyboards (M4800 and earlier) had easy access to full sized Directional Arrows, Pause/Break, Scroll Lock, Home, End, Insert, Delete keys. Most modern consumers ( ie. grandma) have no use for these keys, but professional computer systems engineers that work on all sorts of weird *** every day do, and guess which one buys expensive Precision line laptops? The keyboard unit pops out. Simply offer an option and these units will be our next purchase.
In a given year we estimated that our average developer uses that above combination of keys 3000~4000 times a month in order to avoid using the mouse and/or multiple key press actions, until now that is where it is no longer an option. For people who measure their productivity in how much code they can produce, it *** matters, it works out to several hours of life each year as a result of some missing keys... who could have guessed?
- Illuminate the inside of the USB ports (NICE TO HAVE)
Not a biggie, but a small dim LED would go a long way when were sitting in a weird place having to modify code on some obscure piece of industrial hardware and trying to plug in a thumb drive or USB cable in near darkness.
- Sound popping (LOW PRIORITY)
Not a biggie, but all our Dell 7510s audio makes popping noises randomly when sounds are triggered in Windows. All updates are installed and it still does this.

Otherwise these units have been great. Well built (my last one lasted 9 years and 20 countries). It'd be a shame to have to go with something different because Dell can't seem to be mindful of who buys these units.
Thanks again,-RC

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.)

I recently bought a Dell Precision 7510 off eBay. It does have a warranty, although I don't think that would make a difference in this case, as this isn't exactly warranty related. I just wondered if anyone has ever paid a premium to have Dell upgrade a screen or otherwise. I can get the screen itself off eBay for a decent price, but I'm uncertain if they are the same connector type.

A:Can I send in my Dell Precision 7510 for a 4k screen upgrade?

No - Dell does not support screen upgrades after purchase.  If you wish to do this, you're on your own.  Note however that replacing the screen will void the system warranty (assuming the seller transferred the warranty/registration to you - otherwise, there is no warranty).

I am an Art Director and my work just purchased me a new Dell Precision 7510 with the specs below:
- 4K screen
- 32 GB DDR4 RAM
- Xeon E3-1505M
- Nvidia Quadro M2000M
- 512 SSD
My concern is that it seems like the system isn't running smooth. To me it seems like the system is having a hard time running the 4K screen? I'm experiencing a bunch of Windows UI lag and the system just seems glitchy at times. These problems are especially apparent within the Adobe Creative Suite. Are these known problems? Should I RMA?
Thank you!

Hi,
I have a Dell Precision 7510 (Intel HD Graphics 530 & NVIDIA Quadro M2000M). I want to drive 3 external displays (Dell U2715H) off of this machine. What are my options? I have the E-Series Port Replicator, is it doable with that?
Thanks,Sean

A:Precision 7510 with 3x Dell U2715H displays

Yes, it will be doable. You might have to mix and match using both the dock and system (depending on the exact dock series), but it looks like if you use ports on the system you can technically get this setup as long as the switchable graphics are enabled (and it should be). Here is also a link discussing this. I got the info above from internal sources, but you also might see this on the sales/support site. Best regards,Brad

Hello.
I faced bugs in 1.14.4 BIOS firmware for Precision 7510.
1. Switchable graphics enabled.
Laptop always behave same way. It boot normally, but there is no image on 4K laptop's display (black screen, no backlight) while firmware booting. HDMI functions only if the laptop cover is closed.
Laptop's 4k display switches on after linux kernel started loading. So it works normally with 4k resolution in Linux OS. It always work in linux.

2. Switchable graphics disabled.
Laptop's display functions occasionally since the start of the BIOS firmware loading. So sometimes i can go to BIOS settings / operate boot sequence and so on. If screen does not functions immediately after the laptop turned on, then there is no image in Linux and there is no image via hdmi (coolers are operate, keyboard is highlighted).
If screen operates it operates normally in 4k resolution in Linux.If screen operates it usally does not funtions after reboot.
I guess that this behavior is caused by incorrect handling of second mode from panel's EDID by BIOS firmware. 

Configuration:

Intel core i7-6820HQ
nVidia Quadro M2000M

I joined Dell Communities very recently after buying myself the Dell Precision 7510 laptop. It's a great product so far, but I want better. I want more ports. A docking station to go with it is the obvious solution.
What is the best docking station compatible with the Dell Precision 7510 laptop??? My specific needs/setup:
- 2 external screens (D-sub / HDMI connection, or for £50 more I can get display-port), possibly more screens in the future
- high-speed internet cable
- headphones/microphone
- USB sockets for mouse, keyboard, printer, scanner, external hard drives, etc.
I presume that the Advance E-port Replicator is the best/most suitable. I just want to be sure of this, because my laptop model (Precision 7510) is still very new, and not all information everywhere has been updated about compatibility. I don't want to make an expensive mistake. I'll be travelling and won't have the opportunity to "return" the products I buy. 

A:Docking Station for Dell Precision 7510

Yes. I contacted Dell sales... and they told me that the Dell E-Port Plus II, is compatible with my Precision 7510. After written confirmation I went ahead and bought it from a UK supplier on Amazon for £100... but it came in dodgy packaging and wasn't quite working, and the adapter was the size of a brick (literaly). I returned that back to Amazon... and tried my luck with Amazon Germany. You can get the original product from them for about 140 euros, and it works perfectly. The link to the product:
http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00A8ESOVA?psc=1&redirect=true&ref_=od_aui_detailpages00
(that's actually UK now that I check it... that's the one I bought and it's good)
Basically Dell hasn't updated it's information about compatability yet. The docking station is listed in the check-out for the Precision 7510, but doesn't specifically say it is compatible with that model. I've had other similar problems elsewhere too, like I want to instal LoJack on my laptop, but can't find any information on whether my laptop model supports something called "persistence technology" in the BIOS (which makes it impossible to uninstall LoJack even if you change hard drives).

So my company orders laptops from Dell, and as per usual ordered one downgraded from Win 10 to Win7.
 In this case it is a Dell Precision 7510 with an Intel i7 and an SSD Lite On CX2 NVMe 512 GB. The SSD failed pretty quickly and Dell sent someone to replace it. I think he also replaced the Motherboard. Unfortunately trying to boot our Win
7 Pro image failed because this machine has only USB 3, and the standard Win 7 image has no drivers for USB 3. So the guy left before we got to installing Windows, which I now regret. I added USB 3 drivers to the image and got as far into the install as selecting
a drive but no drive is found ?and it invites me to load a driver for mass storage.
 
But I cannot find a driver for any Lite On SSD. I?ve never seen an SSD that needed one to be added, actually so not sure if this is the right way to tackle this. I have seen suggestions
of using another make of driver and I downloaded a load of different ones including Intel on the theory that?s the chipset. In BIOS I get option for AHCI and RAID On and I tried both with same result.
 It recognizes different drivers if I check ?Hide drivers that are not compatible?, depending on RAID or AHCI. But any I can see and load still give no drive visible. DISKPART also fails to find the disk so none of the solutions which involve
DISKPART are useful right now.
 
If it?s relevant when I go to boot options I get: Boot mode ? Legacy, Secure boot: Off.

So I got the TB16 to use with my Windows 10 Precision 7510. I've had issues with the USB devices dropping out randomly but I seem to have got that under control (for now). I'm having another issue of sorts. Updated the BIOS then went into the BIOS changed restart/shutdown to "thorough" and checked "thunderbolt adapter boot support" and "thunderbolt adapter pre boot modules" as I wanted to boot from a USB DVD drive that was connected to the TB16. But when I tried to boot the laptop got stuck on the Dell logo and wouldn't go into POST. I tried diagnostic boot and got the same result. Couldn't get far enough to press F2 or F12. When I disconnected the TB16 and powered on the laptop it booted up fine. I could then connect the TB16 and it would work fine. But if I tried to restart with the TB16 connected I had the same issue. I eventually unchecked "thunderbolt adapter boot support" and "thunderbolt adapter pre boot modules" just so I could restart without having to disconnect the TB16 (I don't know which of the two options is causing the booting issue though). I can get by without booting from the TB16 but I got it partly for that reason so would to get it working if I can. Any ideas?

So I got the TB16 to use with my Windows 10 Precision 7510. I've had issues with the USB devices dropping out randomly but I seem to have got that under control (for now).
It might be if the devices are intermittent, they would exhibit problems during a Pre Boot Scan.
I wanted to boot from a USB DVD drive that was connected to the TB16. But when I tried to boot the laptop got stuck on the Dell logo and wouldn't go into POST.
You are wanting to boot a UEFI capable DVD, such as the Win 10 Install media, connected to the TB16?  If that is the case, I can test to see if I can do it.  I am wondering if the Thunderbolt is connected to the PCIe bus if any device there will be checked for boot compatibility.  
I suppose you can boot from that USB DVD when connected directly to your system?

The newest BIOS update released has major issues with a Windows 7 OS. Issues related to docking stations where, after closing the lid on a 7510 (once in the OS) and putting the system to sleep, the system hangs and you cannot re-awaken it in or out of the dock. When logged into windows, if the power cord or charger is unplugged, the PC freezes and has to be force shutdown.

Is there a way to fix washed out colors on a Dell Precision 7510?  I am guessing this is a pretty expensive unit and the colors look washed out and difficult to read because the contrast is so poor. 
Also text is tiny on this and scaling messes up everything else on the screen.  Some things are too small and others too big.  Its huge size differences. 
I have tried all the settings to help make the text better and colors more clear but then the dark is too dark and the light is too light.  There is no middle ground here. 
Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

A:Dell Precision 7510 Colors Washed Out and small text

If that system has the Intel Display Power Saving Technology setting, that is very likely responsible for your washed out colors.  If the setting is available, it will be under Intel Graphics Settings > Power > On Battery, or thereabouts.  What operating system and display resolution is your Precision 7510 running?  Also note that in many cases, scaling changes require you to log off and back on in order to be applied properly.  Newer releases of Windows 10 and third-party applications have been getting better about redrawing themselves immediately so that this isn't required, but that's not universally true yet, so if you haven't tried that yet, see if you like the appearance of text and graphic elements after a logoff/logon cycle.

I have been having issues with updating Bios and drivers with my 7510 since January.
It has Xeon E3 1535 cpu; 64GB 2100Mhz DDR4 ECC; Quadro m2000m and Samsung 960 PRO NVME M.2 SSD
It started after a BIOS update from Windows Update failed. I had added 4x 2400MHz ECC DDR4 to the machine and the new BIOS supported only 2100MHz So it rolled back by itself. After that I bought two 2100MHz ECC DDR4 sticks and installed those, as I knew that RAM works in pairs and always takes the speed of the lowest stick. So I tried to update the BIOS manually after that. I wasn't able to. and many things broke after that also. The computer does not shut down anymore. I have to restart it and press power when I see the POST screen. It sometimes loses USB and / or mousepad buttons (the pad and tapping on pad works fine)
I got this from Dell Outlet as Dell Refurbished in january 2017.
I have tried several things:
a) Downloaded drivers via service tag / product detection from support.dell.com. The Bios installation file always tells me that:
"The AC adapter and battery must be plugged in before the system BIOS can be flashed.Press OK when they are both plugged in or CANCEL to quit."

I have big trouble with my two units of Dell Precision 7510. I want to disable "Switchable graphics", because some OS do not support two graphics simultaneously. So, I have unchecked "Switchable graphics" in the BIOS settings, restarted and... display is gone. Notebook is working (system is booting in the background), display is back lighted, but nothing appears on the display. I have checked BIOS 1.10 and 1.20 on two units with identical configuration. I have been checking many times with different BIOS configurations. Always disabling "Switchable gprahics" makes system unusable.
In fact, I have successfully booted up one or two times with "Switchable graphics" BIOS option disabled. In that case the Intel P530 graphic card was disabled totally and AMD FirePro was running perfectly all uptime. Unfortunately, it was one or two times. 99,9% attempts were unsuccessful. When I disable "Switchable graphics" and restart, I get without-signal display. The only solution is reset BIOS setting to default by removing and putting back the coin battery.
Could anybody confirm that issue? My hardware configuration is Intel i5-6300HQ, AMD FirePro W5170M, 1x16 GB DDR non-ECC and UltraSharp IGZO-Display Ultra HD.

A:BUG REPORT: disable "Switchable graphics" make Dell Precision 7510 unusable

I also have almost the same issue with it. What I found out by now - if energy saving is on, you can let windows start (to the login screen that you don't see), close the display (enable standby), re-activate it, and mostly the display is coming after that. I never had to reset BIOS (v1.20) to make it work again.
As the screen itself is turning on (background led), i think the issue is about the connection from the AMD FirePro W5170M card to the display when switching is enabled. IGP isn't experiencing this issue at all.
What's also part of this issue is, when IGP is disabled, the display is flickering from time to time in Windows (Windows 7 x64). This issue neither changed when I updated the driver, nor was it affected by installing Catalyst.
At last I also saw 10-15% performance differences between the two modes (even if the application was run by the AMD GPU).
Our configuration is Intel i7-6820HQ, AMD FirePro W5170M, 1x16GB non-ECC, also with the UHD Display.

Hi,
This is a follow-up to another thread but I have more information.
Since the Creators Update was installed my laptop (M4700) won't resume from standby with any power scheme. I have had the Feature Enhancement pack installed since the machine was on Windows 7. ( This is the add-on that provides the power schemes that the Dell representative didn't believe were created by Dell, but the previous thread has screenshots.)
The issues I was having have gotten worse since Creators Edition update was applied - despite GPOs supposedly blocking that update.
The keyboard and mouse work okay when the screen comes back up, and the Cortana hints display, but as soon as I then go to unlock the machine from the Dell credential provider, the speaker emits a hideous screeching sound and the keyboard and mouse stop working.
A cold reboot fixes it, but loses any work I had running in the process.
FEP has been broken since Windows 10 came out. The schemes still work, but none of their settings can be modified and that includes the enforcement of going into standby after 10 minutes despite being on mains power and having the Maximum Performance scheme selected).
I have removed the FEP, reset all the power schemes, removed all the stuff related to fingerprint reader, changed the Device Manager settings so that the USB devices can wake up after resuming from standby, checked the BIOS, scanned forensically for Dell / MS / Wave updates and found none...

Looking to upgrade my laptop to a dell precision 7510, and wonder what the maximum number of external monitors with a resolution of 2560x1440 is (Dell U2715h):
1. Without a docking station
2. With Dell advanced E-Port II with usb 3.0 240W
Is it possible to daisy chain two monitors (u2715h) from each of the dockingstations displayport 1.2 and still get full resolution (2560x1440)? 
Also, will the choice of screen card impact the number of screens or resolution (amd firepro w5170, Nvidia quadro m1000m or nvidia quadro m2000m)

A:Precision 7510 and multiple monitors

I believe that the systems are limited to 4 displays through firmware. The Nvidia Quadro cards are limited to 2x digital displays in their firmware on the Dell mobile systems while the onboard Intel provides video for VGA and the internal display, and the Nvidia supplies the 2x DVI or Displayport on the dock, and the HDMI port on the laptop itself is tied to one of the two "digital outputs" so you can only do 1 DP + HDMI.
The regular connectors should allow for at least 2x external displays, from the miniDP, HDMI, and Thunderbolt port that should allow for digital via DP as well. I'm not sure how the ports are internally mapped, it could be the HDMI goes to the Intel and the DP and TB3 ports are to the Nvidia, but I don't have a USB-C video adapter to test this with yet.
With the Thunderbolt dock (TB15) you can do up to 2x 4K displays from the dock's Displayport/miniDP/HDMI connections, otherwise you can do up to 3x 2560x1440 displays.

Are there plans to make the Precision 7510 thunderbolt III port to allow an external GPU (eGPU)? According to the eGPU enclosure I want to buy it requires this details page should say "Yes" under External GPU Support. I believe I have the most up to date BIOS and thunderbolt III firmware.

I recently got a new Precision 7510.  I want to get some extra AC power adapters.  It came with a 180 watt adapter.
I did a search on the Dell website for power adapters for the 7510 and it lists a 180 watt model and a 240 watt model.  The 180watt is Dell part #450-ABJU.  The 240watt is Dell part #469-4547. 
Is there any advantage to getting a 240 watt adapter?  Will the laptop charge faster?
Thanks,
Peter

Hi,
this is my first post, so first of all hello to all fellow forum users.
After having used only ThinkPads for almost 20 years, I now switched to a Dell Precision 7510 since approx. 2 months. In general this is a wonderful machine, but I'm very unhappy with the pointstick. The ThinkPads' pointsticks always worked very well for me, with high precision that allowed to control even the smallest pointer movements with ease.
The Dell's pontstick in comparison does not work well for me. Sometimes I have to apply a high force to make it move at all. Sometimes when I try to make small or slow movements the pointer gets "stuck", e.g. it stops in the middle of the movement and then it moves on.
Is it possible that I have a bad exemplar, or do others confirm that the Dell pointsticks don't work as well as the ThinkPad pointsticks in general?
Also the form of the pointstick is not optimal for me. With the relatively high force that I have to use sometimes I slip of the stick and push one of the keys around it. Are there different forms of pointsticks available from Dell as accessory?

I am planning on replacing the OEM installed 250GB Samsung PM871 SSD with a 2TB SATA3 HDD on my Precision 7510.
I understand that I must remove the SSD and fit the HDD in its place before I clone it. I have a Startech USB3 to SATA3 cable so that I can connect up the original Samsung drive externally. I also need to create a bootable USB3 flash drive with cloning software on it (USB2 flash drives NOT supported I understand because of the Intel Skylake chipset).
I am unfamiliar with GPT based UEFI systems and I'm wondering what else I should be aware of so that I run into as few problems as possible. Which is the most straightforward software to use for this?
Also I do know that the speed of the computer will suffer but I really need the extra space. I intend going back to solid state drives when they come down in price.
If you need any additional information please ask. And thank you for any assistance you can give.

Hi guys, I was looking to get an XPS 15 9550, i7, but I'm now looking at a Precision 7510 for my work (Web developer). I'm presuming as with the XPS, it supports attaching 2 external screens and using them and the internal  panel, giving you 3 screens in total?
I presume you use the mDP and HDMI ports to connect the screens?
Also, I'm thinking of the 1TB SSD and 2TB SATA drive, does anyone know the model of the m2 SSD - is it a Samsung SM961 stick? Anyone seen any benchmarks of that setup anywhere?
TIA
Steve.

Hi everyone,
This is not a question but a solution to, what seems to be, a common problem.  My Precision 7510 laptop was having an annoying problem with the Touchpad where the mouse would freeze.  It would freeze for a good 5-10 seconds.  Sometimes, while frozen, the mouse would continue to move at a very slow rate in a particular direction while I waited for the freeze to end.  If I used it later in the day, however, it would be completely fine.  The following possible solutions were tried:
1) Update the device driver.
2) Update the BIOS.
3) Turn off the PointStick.
4) Turn off Touchpad Gestures.
5) Turn off Touchpad Touchguard.
6) Ran the Dell Diagnostics.
Nothing worked.  There was also a possible connection mentioned between Google Chrome running and the Touchpad.  It turns out that it was Google Chrome, but not from the browser running.  It had to do with the background processes running.  I ended up going into the Task Scheduler settings and stopping the Google Updater processes.  Here are the steps on Windows 7:
1) Open Windows Control Panel.
2) Open Administrative Tools.
3) Open Task Scheduler.
4) Under Task Scheduler Library (Local), click on the title Task Scheduler Library.
5) Disable the following services:
GoogleUpdateTaskMachineCore
GoogleUpdateTaskMachineUA
6) Disable any other unnecessary background tasks.
After making this change, I am no longer seeing the frozen mouse and I've re-enabled all of the disabl... Read more

This is my 2nd 7510 and i am receiving the same crippling problems. 
As i type, i will let you see what the keyboard is doing, you will probably notice some odd errors. My mouse freezes about 8 times a minute. It gets stuck for about 1 to 2 seconds. At this same time, if i was typing, my keyboard would freeze or puuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuut...< There, tttttttttttttttttthats exactly what it does. 
This iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiis the exact same problem i had with my previous 7510. After about 2 weeks of normal operation the laptop starts acting up. Reboot fixes it for some time, maybe half a ddddddddddddddddddday maybe an hour. 
I have swapped outttttttttttttttttttt keyboards, Edocksssssssssssssssssssss, and mice. I have checked theeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee CPU temperatures, they are fine. I have checked the processes, nothing seems to be using to much memory or cpu time. My harddrive is not being taxed. I do not even see a blip on the process monitor when the freezes occur. The freezes happen reguardless of what program is running, oooooooooooooooooooor even if no software is running. It also happens out of Dock. 
I have updated aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaall drivers, chipset, bios, video, usb. Everything. NOTHIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIING stops this annoying error.

Hello,
My goal is to connect three total monitors to my Precision 7510 laptop:

Two monitors via DisplayPort provided via the Thunderbolt 3 port
Single monitor via HDMI port

I only seem to be able to connect two external devices at a time. For example, I can get both DisplayPorts to work via the adapter below, but then the HDMI port doesn't display. I can plug in a single DisplayPort monitor via the same adapter and HDMI into the side of the laptop and it works. I plug in the 2nd DP (3rd monitor) and it doesn't come on. I have tried both with the laptop lid display enabled and disabled.
I have a the Intel HD 530 and NVIDIA Quadro M2000M. I have THIS Thunderbolt 3 to 2x DisplayPort adapter. The DP monitors support 1440p/165Hz but I've tried both at 1080p/60Hz, no change. All laptop firmware is up to date (per the Dell Command Update utility).
I know the Precision 7510 can work with three 1080p external monitors with the Dell E-Dock at work, but can it be supported in this "hybrid" configuration? Does anyone have any suggestions?
Thank you for your time!

(TL;DR) If you are experiencing issues matching one of the descriptions below, please send me a Private Message!
I bought a new Dell Precision 7510 in October 2016, and it didn't take long for me to notice that the TrackStick will occasionally stop responding. This is most noticeable when clicking-and-dragging, for example, when selecting text or moving a window. In general, the TrackStick is not completely unresponsive when this happens - sometimes it just stutters a bit, sometimes it freezes completely but letting go of the mouse for a second or pushing the TrackStick really hard will make it respond again. Regardless, the problem is incredibly annoying and disruptive to my work. There are also occasional problems with the TouchPad - sometimes clicking a TouchPad button while I have a finger on the TouchPad would cause the pointer to jump to the bottom right corner of the screen and become unresponsive for 1-2 seconds.
I contacted Dell Support, and they sent me a new Palm Rest and Keyboard. The new Keyboard didn't seem to have any impact on the behavior, but the new Palm Rest did. With the new Palm Rest, the TrackStick freezes happen much less frequently (although they do still happen occasionally), but the TouchPad will freeze periodically (at about the same frequency as the TrackStick freezes on the original Palm Rest, but without the pointer jumping to the bottom right corner of the screen as with the TouchPad issue on the original Palm Rest), and occasionally th...

So my speakers cut in and out rather regularly. Tried reinstalling drivers, and different audio qualities and configs. When I test, I usually get some of it at good quality, sometimes I get nothing and a little static.

Hello, I'm having an issue with the keyboard back light turning on randomly by itself.
I narrowed it down to the pointstick. I've disabled the pointstick and if you touch it, the keyboard back light will turn on. Very annoying when watching videos and such.

I have a 7510 with a 512GB nvme drive installed. I have been attempting to install a secondary hard disk. The first drive I tried to install was a HGST 1TB 7200 RPM drive. No matter what I have tried the drive will not show up in BIOS and is not recognized in Windows 10 Disk Management. I have another laptop (HP 8760W Elitebook) and this laptop sees the drive just fine. So I tried another drive exactly like the first and it will not see this drive either. So I decided to try a third drive that I have which is a Samsung 1TB 5400 RPM drive and this drive works just fine, no problems. I have tried removing and reinserting them several times but it will not see the HGST drives. Does anyone on the forum have any suggestions? Again, both of the drives that the Dell will not recognize work just fine on my other laptop.

Thanks
