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 like to suggest you run the troubleshooting tool on your computer. Please follow steps below:
1. Type troubleshooting into the (Cortana) search bar
2. Look to the left and click " view all "

First try windows update - any failed windows update or any update that need to be install will cause problems on your system).Secondly, try Hardware And Devices, and then Network Adapter. Hopefully, you're able to get Bluetooth.

I have a problem recently with my Precision. When I put it to sleep, whether it be by closing is or the power button or through windows, when I wake it up the screen stays black. The back light is on, but nothing shows. The hard drive is being hit, everything else seems to work fine, the keyboard back light comes back on, just the screen. I even heard a windows alert upon opening it one time so everything must be going fine in the background but no video output.
I do have a dual boot with Kali Linux  and the issue occurs with that OS too. But it works perfect off a restart as long as I don't put it to sleep, I can use it for 5 minutes or 5 hours and everything is great, just sleep mode gets this result.
It is getting quite annoying at this point, I have tried a few things, re-flashing the Bios, reinstall video drivers, clean install windows (even though it does it with both OS's), and updating chipset drivers, no luck. No discrete GPU right now either, just integrated. Any help would be appreciated.
Here is a video of what is happening.

Hello:
1) I recently bought a  Dell Precision M4700 that has a Displayport, HDMI and VGA ports.
2) I also bought a Dell monitor U3011 that also has Displayport, HDMI and VGA port.
When I use VGA cable with VGA ports I am able to use dual (laptop screen and U3011).
But I would like to use Displayport to connect the U3011 to laptop. This setup used to work fine until yesterday.
Today I am not able to view/use my U3011 when I connect via Displayport (works fine with VGA).
How can I make laptop detect the U3011? The monitor says "there is no signal".
 
I don't have another laptop or monitor to troubleshoot the issues.
Here is what I did:
1) Upgraded the BIOS to A08
2) Upgraded NVIDIA Quadro K2000M Driver to version 9.18.13.1150
3) Upgrade other device drivers to latest releases.
 
Your help is much appreciated.
 
 

A:No signal Displayport Dell Precision M4700

Hi katari,
If the monitor has driver’s disc, please install the drivers for the monitor.
If you do not have the disk please use this link to install the drivers for the U3011 monitor: http://dell.to/146JzDi
Click the above link, select the operating system, click Download file and install the drivers listed by following the onscreen instructions.
Try changing the input source to DVI by using the monitors “Onscreen display menu”. Refer this link: http://bit.ly/ZLAcno
Also please try a different Display cable to check if the problem is with the cable itself.
Kindly let me now the results.

I've just restored a Precision M4700 with Windows 7.
It's got 8GB of DDR3 RAM and a nVidia Quadro K2000M which I believe has 2GB of memory
So why in Windows does it say installed memory 8GB, usable 7.88GB.
Does this mean it's using the Intel graphics by default. So how and when would it use the nVidia card?
Thanks

A:Dell Precision M4700 Graphic Card Issue

Hi teesvalleytech,
Thanks for posting.
This is a normal situation.  Yes, your computer will use the Intel graphics card by default, if the game or program you are using requires more graphics power, it will switch to the nVidia card.  This can not be manually changed.  en.community.dell.com/.../19664003

I am in the process of upgrading my household desktop from a Dell Dimension 4450 (Pentium 4) running Windows XP Home (SP3) to a Dell XPS 8700 (Intel 4Core i7-4770) under Windows 8 (x64).
 
During the course of using Revo Uninstaller to install / reinstall additional software I had an "oops" moment, and accidently removed an application one line below the intended target.
 
The software removed was "softOSD.exe". Research  on the web indicates that it is supplied to Dell by a Taiwanese company EnTech, and that its function is to help manage the monitor -- in my case a Dell U2412M. This research also revealed that in the past softOSD has been suspected of causing problems with displays, and there are several articles out there offering ways of removing it (or viruses that have "borrowed" the name).
 
My problem is slightly different -- I have not been able to find any site from where I could download a replacement version, assuming I that should want to. Can anyone offer any insight as to whether I should be worried about the lack of this item (no obvious effects so far) and try to replace it? If replacement is the way to go, where can I find a download site?

M4700 laptop. In the BIOS the battery condition is Normal.  The battery is charged to 19% but the number never changes. Plug in the 180W power adapter; icon in the tray says "Not charging". Put the computer in its docking station hooked up to a different power adapter, same thing.
Could the battery still be bad even though the BIOS says it is Normal? I don't want to replace the motherboard only to find that the battery is actually bad. I don't want to buy a new battery only to discover the laptop won't charge that battery either.
Isn't there a definitive way to determine whether my problem is the battery or the motherboard?

I've got a Dell Precision 7710 with the Dell Precision Optimizer. It works great for when I'm using AutoCAD Civil 3D in setting up the laptop for optimization by turning off 2 cores and increasing the clock speed of the processor. 
Unfortunately I also do programming with Virtual Machines. When I'm in this mode I want all 4 cores to share the load instead of 2 cores. 
Is there a workflow available to go from one profile to no profile? Do I have to do a restart to switch between profiles? So if I'm doing CAD work and then switch over to programming do I have to turn off the AutoCAD profile to no profile and the restart the computer? I tried turning off the profiles and nothing changes for the cores. 
Is there a way to create my own profile? Or should I pick one like 3ds Max that would utilize more cores?  Or should I not use it since it won't meet my needs? 
Thanks.

So the story goes that I have a dell ultrasharp U2414h monitor which been working great since I bought it, and recently I moved to a brighter apartment and I realized there is a stuck pixel on the monitor, and I realized the monitor comes with "Premium Panel Guarantee" as stated on the website throughout all the ultrasharp series, So i called up technical support, spoke with TWO basic support agents and ONE senior service technician, all three of them just keep asking for the service tag or service code which I don't have at all on the monitor, I provided them with the S/N on the back of monitor and their answers were "according to industry standard you need to have minimum 5 or more dead pixels in order to qualify for an exchange" . So since when did ultrasharp premium panel guarantee downgrades and inline with the industry standard? then I went ahead and ask for a supervisor and I got a senior service tech which says my monitor only has one year  warranty, the premium panel guarantee and advanced exchange service (stated on dell website) are EXTRA features that you need to purchase. So according to the website I read to the tech as follow:

Premium Panel Guarantee. The Dell Premium Panel Guarantee allows a free panel replacement during the Limited Hardware Warranty period even if only one bright pixel is found.
Advanced Exchange Service. Your Dell monitor comes with a 3-year Advanced Exchange  Service2 so that,... Read more

So, initially this Dell came setup with a factory OS on the PCIE based NVME drive.
Recently we re-installed the OS, but the OS setup was not seeing the NVME drive, yet, Bios was reporting it. So we setup the OS on an EVO SSD. We then cloned it over to the NVME after realizing Windows was detecting its presence. Everything worked well, we removed the Samsung Evo and the PC had used the NVME based cloned OS for a few days, but now it decided to lose track of the NVME and only boots into start up repair. Nothing you do does anything; last known good config, restore(none created), chkdsk(doesn't find issues), SFC /Scannow doesn't run(Windows Resource Protection could not perform the requested operation). I then noticed that startup repair fails with a Log file "D:\WINDOWS\System32\Logfiles\Srt\SrtTrail.txt.
Clearly the OS now thinks the secondary 2TB drive is now C. I can't help but wonder if this was the reason I couldn't natively install the OS onto the NVME in the first place. There must be some startup delay on the NVME where the order gets shuffled around. Yet, the NVME is still the first boot device in Bios. so nothing has changed there. Ran diags and both drives pass. I unplugged the secondary SATA-based 2TB drive and that at least causes the startup repair failure to end with "Log file C:\WINDOWS\System32\Logfiles\Srt\SrtTrail.txt"

Hello so my laptop (Precision 1350 Workstation) with windows 7 which i bought in September 2016 stopped charging after I used it with my docking station . It worked for a week or two prior to this and then I started getting a notification every time I put the laptop on the docking station that said "ac power adapter not recognized , use adapter of 65 watts or above" but the adapter was 130 watts. Even when the laptop was taken off the docking station and the ac adapter was just plugged into the wall it still won't charge at all. I made sure the bios was updated 1.11.4 and even checked for driver to update and ran the online diagnostics there was no problems but it still won't charge. A tech came out last Wednesday and replaced the motherboard and this fixed the problem for about a day but then when I put it back on the docking station the same problem occurred and it still won't charge. I even tried it on a different docking station but the same make and model as mine and the problem persists. Does anyone know what is wrong?

After getting my Samsung 2232GW I passed my Dell Ultrasharp 19" to my mom. It worked like charm on my PC on a DVI connection. But when I fixed it on her PC (no DVI only VGA) it flickers when showing text. (Some horizontal and vertical distortions). This does not happen when she runs full screen games.

I've set the resolution and refresh rate to the optimum settings (1280x1024 60hz) but it doesn't seem to solve it.

I'll like to hear your solutions please...

Hi,

I'm trying to connect my new laptop Dell Precision 5520 with Dell monitor U-2412H (now approx 4 years old] and I have troubles.
Laptop is having HDMI output only, Display is having VGA, DVI and Display port, so I need any conversion. 
HDMI to VGA conversion (analog ) works, but displayed picture is not fully sharp etc.... 
HDMI to Display port cable - (tested and working between my old Precision M4300 (Display port) and HDMI TV ( Panasonic AS ) doesn't works 
HDMI to DVI ( new cable) doesn't works 
In both digital connections, external display is not detected by video card. 
Built in display is UHD ( 3846x2160) with Touch panel, used display driver is (Intel 630 graphics ] 21.20.16.4664  ( dated as 21.4.2017 ) - but this numbering is incompatible with pure intel drivers versions  (there is noted river version like 15.60 ...
Is this Hardware or sofware issue ?

A:Dell Precision 5520 - DigitalVideo and Dell U-2412H

I don't see a U2412H display anywhere.  I see a P2412H and a U2414H -- which display are you talking about?
You definitely don't want HDMI to VGA because analog video never looks good.
DisplayPort to HDMI only works if the source is DisplayPort and the display uses HDMI.  It doesn't work in the opposite configuration that you're attempting.
HDMI to DVI should work just fine because HDMI and DVI actually use identical signalling as long as it's 1920x1200 resolution or below -- but since I'm not sure what display you have, I'm not sure what resolution you're trying to run.  If it's 1920x1200 or lower and it didn't work, you might want to try a different cable.  If you're trying to run a resolution higher than 1920x1200, HDMI to DVI won't work because DVI can only handle higher resolutions using dual-link DVI, but there are no simple converters from HDMI to dual-link DVI.  In that case, you wouldn't have any way to drive that display from that PC at the panel's native resolution.

I must say this monitor works great. But with certain rhythm music games I play I get input lag with DVI. I was wondering if it was possible to have both DVI and VGA/S-Video hooked up, and be able to switch between the two. For some reason this is not working for me the monitor loses the signal whenever I switch to any video mode other than DVI. I'm running 2x NVidia 8600 GT's, both have 2 DVI inputs and 1 svideo, totalling 4 DVI and 2 SVideo inputs on my PC. I have a DVI, S-Video Cable and a VGA cable.

The input lag is getting irritating and I'm assuming running it with the VGA plug would solve this problem. I've even tried switching the resolution down to 800x600 before switching to VGA but to no avail.

Any help will be much appreciated.

EDIT: Btw the only way I can plug in with the VGA cable is via a VGA-DVI converter. It worked perfectly for my 17" Envision CRT I had before I bought this.

Hey my dell started to do this thing. I turn the laptop on and all I get is a black screen with a white dash on the top left corner, there is no bios screen or the dell logo it does it as soon as I turn it on. Every now and then it works and windows loads but then I get red lines on the screen and it will lockup or the screen will shut off.

One last thing I ran the built in dell diagnostic tool and everything passed.

Hi All,
I have a Dell Precision M4700 and have never had the need to use the internal mic until recently.  However, when I tried to use it, I can not be hear.  The mic test does not record my voice and appears to record what sounds like static.  I have tried updating the IDT driver, uninstalling it, and reinstalling it.  I have also tried using a plug-in mic.  I have run the Microsoft Audio Recording Diagnostic Fix which does not detect any issues.  Any advice would be greatly appreciated.  Thank you!

On top of that I am not able to boot my linux 64bit system when this disk is connected....
Probably I am missing something..
Thank you!
