Preferred Solution: Dell Inspiron 15 7560 unable to detect Samsung NVMe 960 Evo M.2 SSD

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 have just purchased a new Dell XPS 8920 that comes configured with a 250GB NVMe M2 drive as the boot drive and I?d like to replace this with a Samsung 1TB 960 Pro MVMe M2 drive however I can find no way to load the Dell OS Recovery in a way that it can see the new disk and load Windows 10.   BIOS sees the drive, but not the recovery tool.   Has anyone got any suggestions or tried to do this?

For my recently bought E5570 Latitude I bought an new/bigger/faster SSD.
It's the Samsung 950 PRO with the PCIe connection and NVMe support.
I have created an Windows 10 install USB to doe a fresh install but windows does not see/detect the drive.
-edit-I was able to install windows by loading the F6 drivers for Intel Rapid Storage.
But not the less funny part, I only hit about 1000Mb/s reading while it should be around 2500Mb/s.Now samsung has a special NVME driver but that states no NVME drive is installed.Also samsung magician does not detect the drive correctly. The name is all weird and it has 0Gb storage.
Did anyone already come accross this issue?And if so how did you solve it

A:Windows 10 does not see/detect Samsung 950 PRO M2. PCIE/NVMe drive

Here is the guideline from Dell: 

Im also interested in E5570, some questions:
1. Quite many user reviews complain about high-frequency noise coming from mobo or PSU unit. Can you confirm?
2. Would you know if any available Dell SSD option is actually NVMe?
Also, the trouble is, you have to buy M.2 SSD from Dell in order to get 6cell battery.

A:Suffering from dead laptop of dell inspiron 15 7560

Does the system power button led come on and stay on or does it go off after a few minutes? Do you hear the fans / HDD come on? Is there any damage / liquid spillage on the system?
If the system powers on, check if there is any specific led pattern being displayed as per this article- http://dell.to/2r6aa5w
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?  Could you test with another power adapter if possible? 
Does the adapter led stay on and stable or does it go off when connected to the system?
Disconnect the adapter and battery and press and hold the power button for 30 seconds to release any static power. Then test the system with the adapter only / battery only.
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.
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

I'm facing a peculiar issue with my Dell Inspiron 7560 laptop. When I start the laptop without the charger plugged in and press the power button, the laptop starts normally. However when I plug in the charger and then try to start the laptop by pressing the power button, the laptop simply won't start.It starts fine when the charger is not plugged in but when the charger is Connected , it won't start.
I have checked the charger and the same works fine after starting the laptop. The charger also passed the tests in pre boot diagnostics. I tried connecting from different wall outlets, still won't work.
The laptop is only a week old and this is the first time I'm seeing such an issue . I have also tried the "wake on AC charger " option in BIOS. So the laptop starts when i simply plug in the charger and the power button is no required .
So is it some issue with the charger or the motherboard or could be some loose connection inside the laptop. Kindly help if someone else experienced similar problems.

Just bought this model a month ago. At first, I thought there isn't any LED Indicator in this model for charging/ HDD activity modulation but later when I saw the guide, I noticed an indicator just below the touchpad. But, the catch is that it isn't glowing at all. Even while charging, I tried the hotkey combination (Fn + H) to toggle that light but to no avail. Any idea as to how to activate this light?

The compatibility list for SED NVMe support states that the DDPE tools will support SED (OPAL) hardware encryption for the PM961 but I don't see the SM961 listed and I thought the only major difference was TLC vs MLC.  On the 7480 it shouldn't make a difference at 2x, but the write speeds will be much better on the SM series.
Is it compatible?  The performance of the Toshiba XG4 is unacceptable.  The PM961 would get closer, but it'd be best to retrofit an SM961.  Thank you for any help offered.

We have 600+ Dell Latitude laptops, with 170 of them being E7470 laptops, which support NVMe drives.On a few E7470's & we added a Samsung 1TB 960 Pro M.2 NVME drives to them for testing. It is set to RAID on & legacy bios bootup in bios (not set to UEFI). I was able to load Windows 10 & everything is working as normal.However, in the Bios HDD password under security, & the option is not there so I can enable it.. The actual option in the bios --> Security --> "Internal HDD-1 Password" is missing. Since this & most SSD's have full disk encryption already enabled, putting this ATA password makes the drive encrypted compliant (the ata password gets stored in the non-volatile memory of the SSD & is encrypted).We have tried every option in the bios (setting admin/system password), changing to UEFI, AHCI, etc..I am running the latest version of the Dell bios. Running the latest firmware for the Samsung 960.When we put in another (non-NVMe drive) back into the E7470, the HD password option is there again. Dell is saying it is an issue with the Samsung 960 & that Dell supports ATA passwords on NVMe drives.Anyone else set HD passwordson this SSD; especially anyone with a Dell?Any ideas?Thx

When I go to Phone & Modem in control panel, under the modem my phone is not showing.. My windows 7 PC getting this modem.

Is there anyway to sort it out this issue?

I think you should try this
1. Try to install the samsung usb driver in win 7 compatible mode
2. After that switch off your phone and connect to your pc(usb port)
3. Now switch on the phone and wait for a while. Driver configuration will run...
4. Open the pc suit software and now you can see your phone model.

Microsoft has released NVMe Hotfixes 2990941 & 3087873 that add native NVMe drivers to Windows 7.
However if I am say installing Windows 7 SP1 on say Samsung NVme drive and Samsung has released suitable drivers in the form of INF, SYS and CAT files, do I really need to integrate these MS Hotfixes in Windows 7?
Can Windows 7 SP1 supplied with Samsung NVMe drivers (Either slip streamed or during install) be able to detect Samsung NVMe drive and install itself on to it?
As the title says are those MS Hotfixes a must (sort of pre-requsite) to get NVMe drive detected during installation, apart from any vendor provided drivers?

which adpater I need to connect a m.2 nvme SSD card via PCI Express on this board?

A:Dell Inspiron 570 Board 4GJJT - want to connect a m.2 nvme SSD card

Unfortunately, I am not sure if this will work since this is an older system... but the adapter you would want is something like this (I am not endorsing this card etc. but it should be a good example) The reason I say this might not work is because it wasn't tested on your board, and you might already be using the only available PCIe slot on the GPU (the 16x one), the rest are 1x, 1x, and original PCI. Which means there would not be a slot for this adapter. The other issue you might run into is that since the board is older, it might not work correctly with newer OS's (Windows 10 etc), and would limit the cards performance (if it even worked). In short, you might be much better off just upgrading to a normal SATA SSD.Best regards,Brad

Hi All,
I received my Inspiron 7567 Laptop yesterday. It has 512 GB Toshiba NVMe SSD. Windows 10 is preloaded on the laptop. SATA is set to RAID 0 in the BIOS.
I downloaded and created a bootable usb drive for Ubuntu 17.04 using Rufus. Tried installing Ubuntu from usb. Laptop didn't detect the usb. Disabled the secure boot and changed the SATA to ACHI in the Bios. After this, I was able to install Ubuntu 17.04 along with Windows 10 in the free space of 30 GB which was created by shrinking the C drive.
But after ubuntu installation was completed, I was able to login into Ubuntu when as SATA is set to ACHI. But Windows 10 failed with error "no bootable device found". I changed the SATA to RAID 0, then Ubuntu 17.04 doesn't load.
I restored the laptop to factory setting. Still the Ubuntu Grub remains in the system. Currently I have changed the boot order to 'Windows boot manager' in boot sequence. I am able to login into Windows 10 successfully. 
I would like guidance on setting up Windows 10 and Ubuntu 17.04 in dual boot mode. I already have a working Inspiron 5520 laptop which has Windows 10 and Ubuntu 17.04 in dual boot mode. But it has HDD. 
I never knew I will run into issues (dual boot) while ordering NVMe SSD. Any help/guidance in this matter is highly appreciated.

Yesterday I installed a Samsung 950 pro 256gb m2 pcie nvme ssd into a Dell E7270
Older configuration was with a sandisk regular sata 3 ssd. After replacement did a bios reset twice, once factory reset, once custom. (I left sata on ahci.)
I chose to install windows 10 pro x64 by using the uefi/gpt methode. Legacy options off.
Installation went without a problem. Afterwards I installed the Samsung nvme driver
Also the Samsung magician software. It reports a link speed 8Gbps (is ok), link width 16 Gbps (should be 32?) .
Is there a way to change the pcie link width from 2x to 4x? I thought this ultrabook did support x4.

My laptop is less than 2 weeks old and everytime I turn it on, it gives me a bios screen saying it can't detect the power supply. I'm using the 130 watt power supply that came with it. Any ideas on what the issue could be?

A:Inspiron 7559 unable to detect the power supply

Hi Scooch,
I would suggest you to update the BIOS on the computer. Please enter your service tag # on the link below, then download the BIOS required onto the system and install it.
Also, we will need to determine if the issue is with the AC adapter or Battery. We will have to check the status of the adapter in the BIOS; if the adapter is not detected properly the system will continue to receive power but will not charge the battery. Please follow the steps mentioned below to check if the adapter is detected properly.

Start the computer by pressing the power button
Press the F2 key 2-3 times you will now be on the BIOS screen.
Under the Main Tab look for the option that says AC Adapter Type If the Adapter Type says Unknown or None with the adapter plugged in.
Reconnect the adapter to the machine and if the status now shows as Unknown then the AC Adapter needs to be replaced.
Also, I would suggest you to run a thorough test on the battery. You can download Support assist from the link below and run the PC CHECKUP on Battery to check for issues

Please let me know the findings.

A:Cannot connect bluetooth from samsung s2 to dell inspiron 1750

Hi, try to update the bluetooth drivers. That might help.


1. Open Control Panel by clicking the Start button, and then clicking Control Panel.
2. In the Control Panel search box, type Bluetooth, and then click Change Bluetooth settings.
3. In the Bluetooth Settings dialog box, click the Options tab and do the following:
To make your computer discoverable to Bluetooth enabled devices, select the check box for Allow Bluetooth devices to find this computer.
When a Bluetooth enabled computer is in discovery mode, it broadcasts a wireless signal that allows it to be detected by other computers or devices. This is sometimes called pairing mode. If you check this box, your computer will still be able to detect Bluetooth enabled devices that are in discovery mode, but they will not be able to detect your computer.
a) To allow you to add Bluetooth enabled devices to your computer, select the check box for “Allow Bluetooth devices to connect to this computer”.
b) To be notified when a Bluetooth enabled device is trying to connect to your computer, select the check box for “Alert me when a new Bluetooth device wants to connect”.

Dell System Detect: Common Questions
For more information about the recent issue reported related to Dell System Detect (DSD), refer below.

November 23, 2015
Description: Dell System Detect application and its DSDTestProvider root certificate had similar characteristics to eDellRoot certificate that was installed on Dell PC's. With Dell System Detect (DSD), the customer downloads the software proactively to interact with the Dell Support website so we can provide a better and more personalized support experience. The support certificate in question was designed to make it faster and easier for our customers to get support. The certificate unintentionally introduced a security vulnerability.
The application was removed from the Dell Support site immediately and a replacement application without the certificate is now available. We are proactively pushing a software update to address the issue and have provided instructions to remove this certificate.

The laptop was used 2 hours before the wifi adapter suddenly went "missing", as in no wifi driver is shown in the Device Manager list, and when I try to install the driver, the installation was unsuccessful due to absence of hardware.
Now, this laptop was bought 3 years ago, and this problem reoccurred a few times, each time it just magically fixed itself after a couple of days. The problem usually happens after having carried the computer outside during bus ride, so I'm guessing the hardware component somehow got shaken out of place?
What should I do now to fix the problem ASAP? Thank you!

I just reformatted an old Dell Inspiron 5100 with XP SP3.
All drivers are installed and there are no exclamation marks in the Driver Manager.

The network card is a Broadcom 440x 10/100 Integrated Controller.
When I connect my network cable to the machine it doesnt not detect the connection. I tried the same cable in another computer and it is working fine so I know that there is a connection, however, in this machines it does not detect it.

Any ideas on this issue or how to identify the problem?

A:Does not detect network connection in Dell Inspiron 5100

You've confirmed that the network adapter driver is installed and the network adapter is working properly, and you've confirmed that the CAT5 cable isn't bad, so neither of those is the problem.

Try resetting the cable modem and then restarting the computer.

My Dell Inspiron won't connect to the internet via WI-Fi. But all other devices connect to it just fine.
I can only get access to the internet using an Ethernet cable.

I had this problem before, but it just magically solved itself after about 20 minutes of not doing anything. But it's been a whole day now, and nothing seems to work.

When I go on device manager, under Network adapter, it only lists one:
Realtek PCIe FE Family Controller
And there's no exclamation mark or anything beside it.

I've tried:
-Restarting the computer
-System restore
-Restarting router
-System BIOS boot (A Dell representative walked me through the process)
-Download and installed wireless network driver adapters from Dell support page

I apologize if this has been posted before, I tried searching but couldn't find it.

About 3 weeks ago, my Dell Inspiron 600m running Windows XP Pro (32 bit) suddenly became unable to detect wireless networks in the area. I have a standard integrated wireless card (Intel PRO/Wireless 2200BG) and all signs show that it is working properly, only it won't detect wireless networks that are clearly available.

Also, when I go into Wireless Network Connection Properties and hit "Configure" next to my wireless card, I get a pop-up notification stating "Adapter state not found in registry." I don't remember seeing this message in the past, but I can't really say when it started happening.

I have tried various networks in various locations, it doesn't detect anything. I have an updated driver (w29n51.sys & Netw2c32.dll) , I tried using system restore to roll back to before the problem began, no luck.

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

A:Dell Inspiron 600m suddenly can't detect wireless networks

Is the wireless card integraded or installed in a PCMCIA slot on the laptop? If it is part of the motherboard try using an add-on wireless adapter, and see if the detection improves

Hi everyone,
I am brand new on the forum and I have signed up specifically because I am having some problems with the Samsung SSD drive in my Dell Inspiron 3847 desktop,
At the moment I have it connected to sata port 0, exactly where the original HDD was plugged in. Although I am able to boot straight to Windows on the SSD with this configuration, I am unable to choose it as my primary boot drive because it is not showing in the boot menu, in a nutshell it is not listed in the bootable devices when I enter BIOS,
I spent around half an hour talking to a Dell technician on the telephone who walked me through some steps in the bios, but it still didn't show,
I contacted Dell support again today and spoke to a rather rude Guy in technical support who told me he could not help me with this, because the Inspiron 3847 has not been tested by Dell for SSD compatibility, he was most adamant that he could not help,
I am very frustrated by this whole affair because I have read articles, on this particular Forum in fact that suggests it is possible to install an SSD in this model,
Is there anybody within the community you can offer some support and tell me where I might be going wrong with this?, in its current configuration the SSD is working really great and fast, I'm just so confused as to why I can't use it as my primary drive?. I have formatted my original HDD and was planning to use this as extra storage,
If someone could help me with this I would be really grateful,
Man... Read more
