Q: is i7 870 going to work on dell inspiron 580?

Hello, i have bios version A07, and i want to upgrade my cpu since it is very weak for gaming. Can i upgrade to an i7 870? Here in the list of compatible CPUs by the chipset h57, the i7 870 is listed: ark.intel.com/.../Intel-H57-Express-Chipset

If not what is the best cpu i can upgrade? Maybe i5 760 or Xeon X3470?

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.)

Hello CSANDREAS1,
The Inspiron 580 has been tested with the below processors.
Intel® Pentium™ G6950Intel® Core™ i3 - 530, 540 Intel® Core™ i5 - 750, 650
Your findings in relation to the processor being compatible is correct. However, since the processor has not been tested on this platform, I am unable to assure you 100% flawless functionality.

My Inspiron 660 version is with Core i5 3330 and 8GB RAM.
The BIOS is UEFI version 2.7.
My question is simple, will a GTX 960 work on this PC? (I already have upgraded the PSU, so no issue there, and it is a 6.7-inch card, so it will fit no issue)
I am just worried about the BIOS compatibility.
Hopefully someone can help me out.
Thanks!

A:Will a GTX 960 work on a Dell Inspiron 660?

BIOS incompatibility with video cards is usually a problem with much older computers. If there is a problem, update the bios. Make sure the card is in the first slot and that the secondary power cord(s) are plugged in. Most of these cards actually need two 6-pin power cords. Does your new supply have enough amps for the card?
If there is a problem, you can try resetting the BIOS/CMOS memory by removing and installing the system board battery; leave out for 10 seconds or so. You could also have a problem with the BIOS Safe Boot feature. Safe Boot protects the computer from changes in configuration, such as BIOS viruses or hardware changes. You might need to deactivate Safe Boot, restart the 660 and then restart Safe Boot.

I think there is a combo webcam microphone built-in.  The microphone will not work.  I have checked all the settings - everything is turned on, volume is up - have rebooted, checked drivers, etc. etc.  No luck whatsoever.

A:Dell Inspiron 15 microphone does not work

Hello.Re-install your audio driver. Next, go to the Recording tab of the Sound properties -- right click on the audio icon on the taskbar (path will be different if you have Win8)

and then right click on the blank white area and in the context menu select to show both "disconnected" and "disabled" devices.
If "microphone array" or "internal mic" shows up then select it as the default recording device.
If you still don't get "mic array" then open the Dell Webcam Central program that should be on your computer and click on the mic icon (it is hard to see -- look to the right of the camera icon) and see if you can start the mic array from there. Note that if Webcam Central says "Plug in a supported device" then either you don't have a webcam or it is not working.
If still no luck then the mic array might have become disconnected. Contact tech support to schedule a repair if you are under warranty. http://support.dell.com/support/topics/global.aspx/support/dellcare/en/contact_technical_support?c=us&cs=19&l=en&s=dhs&DoNotRedirect=y
If you need more help then please reply back with your full model name and the name of your operating system.
The Dell "15" models are: Inspiron 1545, 1546, 1564, M5010, N5010, M5030, N5030, N5040, N5050, 3520, 3521, 3537, and 7537.

Hi,

Basically I'm 19, I live on my own, and whilst I know the basics about laptops I aren't at all genius' like the lot of you. I've tried to read through some of the posts and find it really difficult so if anyone knows the answer to my problem please try to pretend you're talking to an alien and give it in simple terms.

I have a Dell Inspiron 1545 that is about a month out of warranty so Dell won't help. It came up with an error about two weeks ago saying Time And Date Clock Stopped or something very similar. I took it to a local technician who changed the clock battery or something like that. It was a tiny circle thing. It worked for a couple hours and then went dead and wouldn't do anything at all. Wouldn't turn on or light up or anything. They then said they had forgot to attach the switch that goes under the keyboard that it needs to turn back on so I went back and he reattached the clip, but still it doesn't work.

My friends baby crawled on top of the laptop when the lid was down and hey presto it worked again! Then a few days later the same happened and it just won't turn on. Could something be loose? Or is it just dead? My local technician says it might be the motherboard? I don't understand why it would work after a baby had sat on it, surely it means something clicked in to place?

I put the charger in and I know it works but the light on the laptop that should come on to say its charging stays off.... Read more

My laptop is Dell Inspiron 15R - 7520 (Mid 2010)
After upgrading to Windows 10 and do a clean install after that, I let my laptop update all drivers from Windows Update. Then I go to Dell support page to download any missing driver. Finally, there is no unregconized driver in Device Manager.

However, "Hey Cortana" feature is not working with the microphone. (I have turned on Hey Cortana in Cortana Settings). The microphone still works well with Skype. It also works well if I click the microphone icon next to "Ask me anything" in Cortana textbox.

Anyone knows how to make "Hey Cortana" works? Is it because of the Conexant driver is Windows 8.1 version, not Windows 10?

A:Dell Inspiron 15R - 7520: Hey Cortana does not work

I have the same problem, except that it doesn`t work for me when I click the microphone icon in the Cortana textbox. It seems to listen for a second, but then it jumps to the suggestions like I didn`t say anything. I have the audio drivers for Windows 10 from the Dell support page. My voice works fine on Skype and Voice Recorder, though.

Please let us know if there is any progress.

Hello, I hope someone on here can help me with this issue. Ok here it goes... I just bought this used laptop. I bought it so I could speak to friends & family on Skype. Before buying the laptop the previous owner was attempting to connect to his wireless internet connection & it would pick up the signal and then loose the internet connection. The computer seemed as if it would freeze for a few seconds when attempting to open up the Internet Explorer browser. The screen was blank and a swirling circle would show next to the pointer. Seemed as it was a bad internet connection or at least that's what he told me. After a few tries we got it connected to the internet and I bought it.

I assumed Internet Explorer 8 was crappy so I downloaded Google Chrome. The speed on the laptop really picked up and it rarely gave me any slow or freezing issues only when I used Google Chrome.

NOW... I downloaded Skype and soon after I tried using it as the laptop comes with an integrated camera. When I double click the Skype Icon on my desktop the Skype window opens for a second and closes immediately. I have to try and open the program 2 to 4 times for Skype to open and get me to the sign in section. Once signed in I attempt to add contacts & not even 5 seconds into it the program freezes. It says program not responding & a screen pops up which says Skype not responding close window. I never get to use Skype and I'm not sure if it's a non sufficient space issue ... Read more

If you've never done so, remove the heatsink fan assembly and clean it thoroughly - and replace the thermal pads that sit between the GPU/CPU and heatsink assembly.
Unfortunately due to the design of this model, it's a major undertaking - see the service manual for the procedure, which includes removing the system board.  You may want to leave the job to a shop - expect about an hour's labor charge, whatever that costs where you're located.

Hi....All

I recently bought Dell Inspiron 14R N4110, which came only one default partition (C:\) with Windows 7 Home Premium.
But later on, I did one more partition (D:\), and I installed all drivers(which comes with Dell laptop). but some how my internet is not working properly. Sometime its too slow and not connecting.

I reformatted the laptop, and Restored the modem/router to factory defaults (in that order) neither helped. But if I restored my laptop to factory default (which I don't want, because it has only one partition C:\ ), than everything works fine. Why its happen ?

I hope that you people will be a big help.

Hi...I'm not sure where to put this request, thought since the Dell Inspiron 15 is running Windows 10 (including latest update) that there might be a conflict between the desktop and the keyboard down in the nuts and bolts somewhere. I can turn the machine on, the capslock light comes on, SOMETIMES the keyboard works well enough to input the pin to get the desktop booted up. Sometimes I have to go through steps to get the touch screen keyboard up in order to input the pin. However, as soon as the desktop is active, the keyboard no longer works. I've updated the drivers, don't know what else to do. When I try a search online for a solution, I get differing ideas on how to solve the problem. I've tried resetting the BIOS to default settings, that didn't work. Any and all help will be much appreciated. I really need the keyboard to be working, my kids do their homework on my laptop.

I'm using the power supply that came with the computer (I assume 300W?) along with the above specs. So my question is will this video card upgrade work with my Dell Inspiron 3847? And if so, will I need a new power supply, or can I keep the one that came with the computer? If this upgrade isn't realistic, then a recommendation for the right direction to go towards would be appreciated as I am very new to messing with computer hardware/building or upgrading a computer.
I heard that the size of the video card could be a problem for the Dell Inspiron 3847, but this one is only 1.5 x 5.7 x 4.38 inches according to Amazon, so I'm pretty sure it is small enough for the case.
If anyone can help a newbie out then that would be greatly appreciated. If I am missing any details that are needed so you can help me I will try to provide with those if I can.

The stylus was able to connect to the laptop via wi-fi but was unable to function with the laptop. Whenever I pressed the top button of the stylus (to open up a drawing software), the stylus would just reconnect to the laptop. I also cannot draw anything with the stylus either.

I have a dell Inspiron 1545 running Windows 7 Home Premium Service Pack 1, 64 bit. The hard drive went out so I replaced it with one out of an old Acer Aspire running the same Windows 7 version. It accepted my Windows Activation as genuine, however, my system information shows that is is still an Acer Aspire and my Mobile Intel 4 Series Family Chipset won't recognize the driver. The Properties of the chipset shows this message "This device cannot find enough free resources that it can use. (Code 12)
If you want to use this device, you will need to disable one of the other devices on this system."
 
Please help!

A:Mobile Intel Chipset4 Series Family won't work on Dell Inspiron 1545

This is appearing as a Acer because it contains the OEM Windows 7 installation with all of the Acer bloatware.
 
You made a mistake which probably will necessitate a fresh installation of Windows.  The motherboard has identifiers that Windows recognizes the first time it is started for the first time in the computer.  When you move a hdd to another computer with a different motherboard it will see a different set of identifiers which can cause the hdd to either not boot the operating system or create problems like you are experiencing.
 
In the future, when you go to move a drive with Windows 7, Windows 8/8.1, or Windows 10 you need to generalize the operating system.  This will remove all of the current identifiers.
 
 If you run sysprep on the HHD/SSD with Windows 7 or 8.1 before using it with another motherboard you should be be able to boot from it without any complications. You want to remove all hardware identifiers from the HDD/SSD, this generalizes the drive.
 
Click on the Start orb, then type cmd in the Search box.
 
cmd will appear under Programs above the search box, right click on it and choose Run as administrator.
 
This will open the Elevated Command Prompt.
 
In the Elevated Command Prompt type in CD C:\Windows\System32\Sysprep, then 
use the command: sysprep /generalize /oobe /shutdown.
 
Don't power the drive back on until it's in the other computer.

Hello everyone,

Both the laptops Dell Inspiron 15R and Dell Inspiron 7548 came with 6 GB of RAM. I'd like to upgrade it to at least 12 GB by replacing the 2 GB dimms in both laptops with 8 GB dimms.

Was wondering whether it is safe and okay to combine different memory modules from different manufacturers.

I'm also leaving the US next week and so would prefer getting RAM that's more reliable and wouldn't mess up the laptops.

Could you guys please recommend which ones you'd get? I've bought Samsung and Crucial in the past and didn't have any issues.

Here's the existing RAM information from CPU–Z:

Inspiron 15R:

Inspiron 7548:

Based on the above information, could you please recommend the sticks that you would get, preferably from Amazon?

Dell's upgrade page for Inspiron 15R recommends this one:

Dell 8 GB Certified Replacement Memory Module for Select Dell Systems - 1600MHz LV SODIMM : Memory | Dell which is 1600 MHz.

So can I get this one for that laptop: Kingston Technology 8GB 1600MHz DDR3L (PC3-12800) 1.35V Non-ECC CL11 SODIMM Intel Laptop Memory KVR16LS11/8 at Amazon.com

This would match the manufacturer of the existing stick (Kingston).

Dell's upgrade page recommended the same stick for Dell Inspiron 7548 as well.

Since I wasn't able to locate Hyundai's 8GB stick, is it okay if I get Kingston or Crucial's stick:

Kingston Technology 8GB 1600MHz DDR3L (PC3-12800) 1.35V Non-ECC CL11 SODIMM Intel Laptop Memory KVR16LS11/8 at Amazon.com

Over the last 2 days I have been having a problem as indicated in the title of this post. The fault has rectified itself 3 times, but again today, it is back to "battery plugged in, not charging." As I am running the laptop (Windows Vista Home Premium; 32 bit) on the adapter without problems, I assume that the adapter itself may not be faulty.
I also have a Dell Inspiron 630M laptop running Windows 7.  Can I safely use that adapter with the Vista laptop, without causing damage to the Vista ?  If it is safe to do so, and the battery on the Vista starts charging, then it would indicate that the Vista adapter/charger has some kind of fault.
Hoping someone can give me some guidance. Thanks.

A:Dell Inspiron 1545 laptop. Battery plugged in not charging. Can I use adapter from a Dell Inspiron 630M laptop ?

If the adapter has the same plug and the same or higher power rating, you can swap them.
Check to see whether the 1545 recognizes the AC adapter or whether it shows unknown (F2 at powerup).  If it shows unknown with two different adapters, you have a bad power jack or a bad mainboard.

You need to go into BIOS and make sure the dvd drive is checked so it can be booted from.

My Dell Inspiron 17R 5720 doesn't recognize charger any more. And unfortunately my warranty expired 2 month ago.It was plugged in and working in the morning, but then in the afternoon I noticed that it was running on the battery only. It wont start without battery (just charger plugged in).
1. So here what I have done to debug. Me and my brother, we have purchased the same Dell laptops at the same time a year and a bit ago. This is why for a debugging purposes it was good.I took my charger and plugged in to his computer. And it works. Definitely not the charger issue I guess. And when I plug charger in to my computer, green light is still on the charger. And I have the original charger that came with the laptop.
2. Now, laptop works on the battery only, so this means that motherboard is working. I guess.
3. Next thing I did was unplugged charger and removed the battery from the laptop. Then I pushed and hold "Power" button for 45 seconds to discharge a flea charge. Plugged charger back in but laptop wont start.
4. Next I started laptop on the battery, went to BIOS and checked if the charger is recognized in the BIOS. No, it doesn't recognize charger. So, if it is not a charger then what else can it be?
5. Laptop doesn't have any strange smells so I'm not sure if anything happened with the motherboard, but I would assume mother board is ok because it works of the battery.
6. I was thinking updating the BIOS, but I can't, because it wont update whi... Read more

Hi CJ777,
Thanks for reaching out with your query. You pretty much figured out all points of failure. Good job.
If the adapter is not detected in BIOS, it most likely is an issue with the mother board. In the BIOS set up, AC adapter should show up as 65w or 90w. If the adapter status is 'None' or 'Unknown Device Installed', it indicates that the mother board is not detecting the adapter for which the battery is not getting charged. Once the battery charge drains, I'm sure the adapter will not charge it again. Replacing the system board should resolve this issue.

For background, some Dell laptops have a feature where they use a low-powered intel graphics card when undemanding applications are running, but they switch to a high-power, high-wattage graphics card (AMD Radeon series) when demanding games are running. With the AMD/Intel version of this, it is a very fragile configuration and you can't download any old version of the drivers and expect them to work. Dell engineers have to specificaly craft a version of the intell driver installers that is compatible with this configuration.
Automatic driver/windows updates and OS changes can trounce on this delicate configuration and you're at the mercy of the Dell support people about when you'll get an updated driver. If you just use the vanilla Intel video drivers, they won't respect the AMD wish to take control of graphics and the AMD video card will sit unused in your laptop.
There are three parts to getting Windows to use your preferred driver for the hardware, one is removing any installed software that provides drivers. This is done by uninstalling all software that puts drivers on the hard drive. The second step is to delete any drivers that windows is pegged against because Windows will not allow drivers it is using to be fully uninstalled. This is done by putting Windows into "safe mode" where it does not use most drivers and then uninstalling and deleting the driver files themselves. the final step is installing your preferred drivers, both the AMD and ...

I have a dell inspiron 1150 and 5160, they look very alike. Does anyone know if i can put the 3.06 mobile pentium 4 processor from my 5160 into the 1150? 

Only difference is the fan is much bigger on the 5160 and it runs very hot. The 1150 has a celeron 2.8 and the fan runs slow or not at all. 

Is there any other significant differences between these two laptops ?

A:Dell Inspiron 1150 Vs. Inspiron 5160 Processor compatibility?

While the CPU will work, it's a power hog and runs hot -- I would not try it without moving the larger fan to the 1150 (if that's possible).  The Celeron CPU is the reason why one system runs much cooler than the other -- Intel had pushed the mobile P4 further than it could go and ultimately had to redesign the chip to make it more efficient - - which led to the Core CPU line.

Hey, im having some issues. I have a DELL inspiron 5100 laptop and i just recently removed a virus that almost destroyed my hard drive, I got it to work fine but after a few days of use it started to freeze up on the DELL loading screen on the start up, i accidently pressed the F12 key and it took me to a screen with different ways to start up XP, like through the Hard drive or a disk.
i selected to run offthe hard drive and it froze up any help?

thanks

hi, after you hit F12 did you see the diagnostics program at all? Ordinarily I would say It may be worthwhile running a scan on the hard drive if you can. But, I see you removed a virus, can you tell me if it was with the help of the antimalware section on this forum? or did you just remove it yourself? I need to know if you are absolutely sure you removed all traces of the virus - if you had the help of a forum they would have given you the "all clear". Have you tried starting in safe mode at all?

i have just purchased a DELL Inspiron 15 5000 SERIES - 5559 with Windows 10 Pro pre-installed in Spanish. I have also purchased a DELL 24" additional screen SE2416H.
Whilst watching live internet broadcasts (TV, Youtube etc.) on Chrome, Edge or Firefox, as soon as I connect the screen to the laptop by HDMI cable, the sound on my laptop speakers disappears. Upon disconnection of the HDMI screen cable, the sound re-appears.  
However, the sound doesn't disappear when using other sound applications such as Skype. 
This means I can't enjoy watching internet TV with sound on the 24" screen.
Please advise how to fix this as the main point of purchasing the 24" screen was precisely to be able to watch (and listen to) TV programs.
