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.)

We have quite a few Precision 3510 devices running Windows 10 (1607)
Some of them are locking up on the users
Some of them are hanging when it tries to load windows
I have read articles that there is a windows update causing this but I have been unable to validate.

Anyone with any experience please respond.

Thank You,

Hi all,
I recently purchased a Dell Precision 3510 with an I7 6700HQ CPU. My problem is that the CPU seems to be stuck at 0.75 Ghz and it doesn't seem to go over 30% load. When reaches 30 % in load (and there it stays) might go up to 0.78 Ghz, but that's not happening every time.Did a few tests while playing a few games, on battery and while charging, and on different power plans: Dell and performance. Did not activate the profiles provided by Dell regarding the power optimization.The only time I managed to get it over 30% in load, happened when I disabled the Intel Speedstep feature from Bios. It was running indeed at 2.6 Ghz, but everything seemed to be..chaotically. 
I'm not sure if this is the way it should be. Does anyone else have this problem?

I have a Precision 3510 with Ubuntu 14.04 installed from the factory.  Is it advisable to upgrade to 16.04?  I ask because I know that the new kernel is necessary to take advantage of some of the power saving features of the Skylake CPU, but it also introduces a new AMD graphics driver that may not yet be tested with FirePro cards.

I've just taken delivery of a Precision 3510 laptop with a M2 SSD. I now want to add my own SATA 2.5" drive but find there is no connecting cable. How is it possible to ship an expensive top-of-the range laptop without such a basic part? Additionally, why is the part not available from Dell??
This kind of thing just creates frustration for loyal Dell customers like me who fight to recommend them over HP. Please can someone tell me how I get hold of such basic items - because I can't find them anywhere.

I know Dell has an imaging solution, but it doesn't work for our needs, as we need a sector based solution. Here is my problem:
In order for ghost to recognize the drive, I had to change the boot sequence from UEFI to Legacy.
I've had to do that on Lenovo's, as well as a few other tweaks, and then booting to ghost with an -ib or -id switch (depending on the Lenovo model). After I create or restore an image, I have to change the boot sequence back to UEFI after the image was created/restored. Doing that works perfectly on the Lenovo ... but not on the Dell. 
Does anyone know what I need to do use ghostcast on a Dell Precision 3510?
Thanks,

Hi all,
My problem with my recently purchased Precision 3510, is it's CPU seems to be stuck between 0.75 - 0.78 Ghz and doesn't exceed 30% in load. It doesn't matter if the laptop is charging or not, it will stay between 0.75 Ghz - 078 Ghz.The power profile is configured on high performance and the power adapter is good.I upgraded the BIOS to the latest version 1.9.4. (now i was really thinking to try a downgrade)Did a fresh install of Windows 10 Pro (it came with 8.1 pro and the problem was there, and i thought upgrading to w10 will fix this problem). I also teted the CPU running a live distribution of Fedora, but all the cores were running the same speed.I also tried to disable/enable with a reboot in between intel turboboos, c-states,intel speedstep.
The FAN is working, and the laptop doesn't get hot.I also tried to drain the battery, to the point where the laptop wont turn on at all, no success.
I did all the tests on dell website, and dell epsa diagnostics (4300.24 validation121284) as well, al were passed and no issues detected.
The only time when it seems to reach it full capacity (and Im not talking about turbo up to 3,5 ghz) is when I boot the system in safe mode. But then it's stuck at 2.59 Ghz, and obviously the speedstep tech is not in use. What I noticed is that the multiplier is set to 8.

My precision 3510 (i7-6700HQ, 512GB SSD,  16GB, AMD ATI Firepro w5130m) is heating. In idle CPU temp around 70-80 celsius and GPU 85 celsius. On load it is up to 90 - 97 celsius degree . When i contacted with Dell support, they told me that by the their policy 102 celsius degree is overheating, so they do not think that i had a problem. But anyway i carried to autorized service for diagnostic. They found that heat sink - is not working correcty and thermal paste dry, so they changed heat sink and applied new thermal paste. Yes, now it is a little bit better, but anyway it is now, on idle 60-70 celsius degree and GPU 70 celsius degree and now i also has some problems with touchpad, it is freeze while i using it. Again i carried it to the service and the engineer told me that they will diagnose the problem with the touchpad, but about the overheating he is said that it is normal operation temperature for these laptop and dell engineers says that just 102 celsius degree is overheating, But i am sure it is not, because i used these laptop for 1 year and i did not have such issue. Also i am have more that 10 year experience with the mobile workstations. I understand that on load temperature can increase up to 70-85 celsiuse degree, may be a little more. But not on idle 60-70 celsius degree. Does anybody have same issue with such configuration? Is it really normal operation temp for these latpop? What can be wrong with it?

First thing to verify with your company is that they're OK with you doing this - it will end your warranty.
You'll need at least the screen and wiring harness (the wiring harness is usually not interchangeable between screen resolutions).

My Precision 3510 will not sleep or hibernate regardless of how I attempt it.  If I click start, power, sleep, it just powers off.  I've set the Lid Close mode to sleep when on battery and it just powers off.  I've set it to go to sleep after 20 minutes when on batter, and it just powers off.  I've looked at the BIOs and sleep mode, or whatever it's called, is enabled.  I've run throught the FN diagnostics and they show no issues.  This is running Windows 10 that is fully up to date on patches, and the firmware/BIOS on the laptop is completely up to date.
How do I get this thing to sleep?

Have to say this workstation is giving me some problems so far that are fundamentally slowing down my work process.
Disk Access at 100% - I realize this has a lot to do with Windows 10 and my slower drive but it gets bogged down so that the mouse stutters in movement and things almost stop. Had to search high and low across the internet for strange little tweaks and things to turn off to get it not do it as much. Everything from turning off notifications to manually setting the page file size.
Intel HD Graphics - Crashes all the time freezing the screen. This is with the latest BIOS and driver updates (on beta 4444 just to see if it helped). Black squares appear in browser windows and in my VMware virtual machines. Since I am back and forth between browsers and VMs and email, I get this crash a lot. Which I could just switch to using the AMD graphics card that could handle everything without issue but it seems this may be architecturally impossible which seems to be a bad choice for a system that is supposed to be this powerful and forward thinking.

Hi,I've just ordered a Precision 3510 with an M.2 SSD and am looking for some storage upgrade advice for the future.I'm led to believe that the M.2 SSD blocks part of the 2.5" drive bay so a 2.5" drive cannot be added.My question is, could the 2.5" SATA cable, part number XDYGX

be used to connect to an M.2 SATA SSD via one of these adapters

or will it still be blocked by the existing M.2 drive?
Thanks in advance.

A:Precision 3510 2nd hard drive

Part of the answer depends on which battery you purchased,  If it's a 6-cell, the battery takes up the space where a 2.5" drive would go.  The 4-cell battery leaves space for the  2.5" drive.
If you look at the service manual, it appears the M.2 drive over-extends the battery, which means it should sit atop the 2.5" drive if you have the 4-cell battery/2.5" drive equipped.

I ordered the Precision 3510 laptop with the Intel® Core™ Xeon E3-1505M v5. When I was configuring this laptop, it says that ECC memory is required and choosing a non-ECC memory makes a message pop up saying the selected memory is incompatible with the processor.
For saving money, I ordered this laptop with 8GB of ECC memory (4GB X2) as configured from Dell. Then, I ordered this RAM kit from Crucial to upgrade the laptop: 
Installing both Crucial memory sticks (replacing the 2 OEM 4gb sticks) results in the computer booting up with amber blinking pattern 2,5 indicating invalid memory installed. See page 62 of the owner's manual: 

However, booting with just one stick of 16GB memory does not result in any problems and the system is able to post and load into the OS, which recognizes 16GB installed.
I am aware that the Crucial memory I purchased is 2400Mhz and the configurations from Dell for this laptop only list 2133 Mhz RAM. This does not seem to be an issue though considering the laptop is able to boot up with 16GB of 2400Mhz ECC just fine. Furthermore, this system is capable of handling 32GB according to the owner's manual and memory configuration options from Dell's ordering site: 

Please advise on how to allow this machine to boot with two sticks of 16GB 2400Mhz ECC. If this is not possible, would this memory kit be compatible with this machine with the selected processor mentioned above? It is 2133Mhz, but non-ECC.

Through work, I have a Precision 3510 and docking station (E-Port Replicator (331-7950)) through our IT department. According to Dell support, the E-Port Replicator is the correct one to use with a 3510, but there's a 3 inch gap between the back of the laptop and the docking station because the bus socket is located at the back of the laptop instead of the middle.
Is there a way to fix this? Everything works fine, but it makes the whole setup look flimsy and badly designed.

A:E-Port Replicator poor fit for Precision 3510

That gap is there because the early E Series Latitude models (and the Precision models that used the same docking connector) had their docking connector closer to the center of the laptop's underside, which of course resulted in the laptop being situated much closer to the "main" part of the dock.  Around the Exx40 series models and the corresponding Precision models, the dock connector was moved right up against the rear edge of the system, creating this gap when docked.  Normally, if you order one of these models AND order a dock at the same time, Dell includes a "spacer", which is essentially a piece of plastic that covers that gap that you see and allows somewhat easier positioning of the laptop over the docking connector.  It's still not great for fitment or aesthetics, but it's better than what you have.  You might be able to find one on eBay or something if you really want one, or maybe call Dell Spare Parts.  I'm not sure the spacers are actually sold separately, though.

Hello, we have a dell 3510 laptop that no matter what we tried we were unable to install the Windows 7 64 bit enterprise edition. I worked with Dell on this and even they could not get it to work., We switched the BIOS from UEFI to Legacy and switched the RAIDon to AHCP and there was the third thing which I have a hard time recalling, I think it was boot off of CD, and the setting was set correctly. We spent hours trying to do this to no avail. I tried the DVD and USB, at one point it looked as if it was going to install the O/S but we got a box that came up asking us to search for Drivers, I was able to see the 'C" drive and the "X"
It asked to Load driver, but no matter what we tried, it did not work. Below is as far as I was able to get. I even ran the F6 Driver Utility and still it was a no-go.
I had another PC to try it with but when I switched from UEFI to Legacy it was as if there was no OS at all and I had to switch it back.

A:We have a Dell Precision 3510 Laptop and no matter what was done we could not install an O/S from DVD or USB.

I have been attempting to install Windows Server 2012R2 on the second, M.2 SSD (Disk1) into a GPT, NTFS partition.
Since this system has no DVD, I made a bootable UEFI thumb drive with the contents of the .iso installation for Server 2012R2.
The thumb drive boots OK and I can begin installation, but when it comes to choosing the target for installation, the M.2 SSD is not visible in setup.
The M.2 drive is clearly visible inside Windows 10 Pro as the D: drive.
So...I mounted the .iso setup file in Windows 10 and ran setup.exe. The install began and could see the target M.2 drive, and began loading files on the second SSD. It then attempted the first of several restarts that come with this process with the new Server 2012 R2 environment.
It sucessfully modified the Windows Boot Manager before the restart, then restarted, and the setup program gave an error because it could not find the target partition on the second SSD.
The setup environment then modified the Boot Manager to "Windows Setup Rollback" and proceeded to enter an infinite loop, attempting to delete files from the unreachable M.2 drive. I manually choose Windows 10 on the boot menu, and once booted changed Windows 10 back to the default OS.

If it's a Precision 690, the very first thing to look for is the presence of bad or leaking capacitors on the mainboard - particularly near the memory socket and CPU socket.  If any are bulging or leaking a brownish substance, the mainboard will need to be replaced.  These systems were very well known for capacitor failures.

Older desktop running XP Pro. Had some problem booting yesterday; and today am unable to boot up at all.
Problem area seems to be the CD drawer.

Fairly sure that boot sequence is CD then C and then perhaps A (diskette drive).
Yesterday, it took several tries to boot the desktop, and I noticed that the green light on the CD drawer often kept flashing even after I had been successful. I ended up using a paper clip to open the drawer and left it open for the remainder of the day.

Today unable to boot successfully.
At one point screen showed some brief text, I believe whatever is typical at starting up sequence, but this immediately went dark. It seemed like the CD drive and drawer were trying to be accessed.

After several abortive attempts, I did a text message with something like
I believe Checksum error or Sum error but very far from being completely sure on what error code.
Previous attempts at starting computer have failed, please contact Dell for support.
While yesterday I had been successful at some point in getting CD tray to stay in the open position, and not keep closing - today I have been unable to do so.

============
At some point I should replace this old machine. If I can get it up and running again, I expect that I should take the CD drive out of the boot sequence (or put it after C drive).

I do not have any bootable CD at the office, and not sure if I have one at home either (this is computer I used to use at home and now have in office).

Thanks for any s... Read more

Had a problem deleting a file from print que (it was showing both printing and deleting and was locked), so finally deleted printer. In trying to reinstall, the printer is on the laptop as a device, but not connected.  It will not connect by either
USB or wireless method.  I cannot locate the CD to reinstall with wizard, so am at the mercy of windows software.

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?

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?
