Inspiron 7348 2-in-1 compatibility with 16GB modules

Q: Inspiron 7348 2-in-1 compatibility with 16GB modules

Does anyone have an updated information about compatibility between single 16gb modules (like the Crucial CT204864BF160B) and the 7348 2-in-1 laptop? Mine has a 5th gen i7-5500U CPU and is already updated to the latest A08 BIOS released yesterday.

Preferred Solution: Inspiron 7348 2-in-1 compatibility with 16GB modules

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.)

A: Inspiron 7348 2-in-1 compatibility with 16GB modules

Being a 5th generation Broadwell Intel Core 2 CPU, I do think so. It would be compatible. Its price dropped a few days ago to 100USD level, what makes it a nice and relatively cheap upgrade.

Inspiron 14z n411z (Laptop): Authoritative confirmation of memory upgrade to 16 GB, 16GB, 16gb

There are various claims that 14z/n411z can be upgraded to 16GB (unofficial or therotical based on CPU-i5 being Sandy bridge)

Here are the main issues on this subject that has left many customers scramble for answers and find themselves confused:
* It is the interest of customers that Dell come out with an official statement "confirming" or "denying" if this is possible
* Yes, at the time of sale Dell stated that max permitted was 8GB. But now therotically (Sandy Bridge CPU can support 16Gb) and based on other users experiments it seems possible, but no concrete/firm proof available.
* If it is possible, Dell can always state that it will not support 16GB, though it (Dell) has tested it as possible in their labs.
* In the absence of a confirmation from Dell, most memory vendors are not selling memory 16 GB upgarde for Inspiron using their "configurators".
* There is another confusing twist to this problem, created by the fact there is another Dell XPS model facing same problem. But they newer CPU, for which most vendors are selling the memory upgrade on their configurators.
* For Dell, most users are now "past their Warranty" period. There is no liability in answering this question. In the LARGER interest of customers Dell should clear this doubt.

Hello guys, I could not find any thread on this issue so Im hoping someone can help me. My Inspiron 7348 2 in 1 laptop's touchscreen will become unresponsive when I interact with it. It will work for a couple of touches but then it will become unresponsive for about 10 seconds before it responds again. I checked for driver updates for the human interface touchscreen and found the drivers up to date. I will usually use the touchpad or a mouse but it's a real bummer that the touchscreen is basically useless since I purchased this model for its 2 in 1 feature. I'd appreciate and input and help, thank you!

I purchased the car charger Dell 450-AEGT but did not work with my 7348 laptop. Strange enough, it would be compatible with the 7347 and even with the 7352, which shares the same BIOS of mine, but Dell does not list it as compatible with the Inspiron 7348. Is there any Dell-made car charger compatible with the 7348? I would for third-part acessories but did not find anyone that I could be sure it would work anyway.

A:Car Charger for the Inspiron 13 7000 2-in-1 (7348)

The laptop charges correctly using the power source that came with it. So, what would be the problem with this car charger 450-AEGT?

Hello there,
My name is Khang, I bought a laptop Dell Inspiron 7348 (Service tag 4GWSB32) when I was in Seattle for business in May last year.
Just about recent weeks, my laptop shutdown unattended after few minutes or 20-30 minutes depend on what I am opening.
I ran F12 check or Support Assist tool, but they seem not showing anything wrong. I doubt this situation is related to CPU over heat at 70 C degree.
After shutting down about 10minutes, laptop automatic turn on, but when I use it, it will turn off after a while.
From discussing in Dell’s forum, I see instruction about disabled Intel speedstep may fix this, but I don’t have code for unlock setup.
Please show me how to fix this.

Hi danielius16,I’d suggest that you follow the steps mentioned below and check for issue resolution.
Ensure that the auto-rotate box is checked. Refer to these steps:1. Right click or press and hold on an empty area on your desktop, click/tap on Screen resolution.2. Check the Allow the screen to auto-rotate box, and click/tap on OK
Unlock Screen Auto-Rotation in Charm Settings. Refer to these step:
1. Open the Charms bar, and click/tap on Settings.2. Click/tap on the Screen button.3. Click/tap on the screen icon above the brightness slider to toggle to unlock autorotation.
(A lock symbol appears next to the screen icon when autorotation is locked. The screen will not rotate when you change the orientation of the tablet.  If there’s no lock symbol next to the screen icon, the screen will auto-rotate as you turn the tablet).
You can also check by installing available Windows updates including Optional updates.
Hope this helps you.

As is common on hybrid systems, the entire top assembly is fused together with adhesive.  It's all but impossible to disassemble the upper assembly without destroying the glass, LCD and/or defacing the back plastic - as Dell informed you, the entire upper half of the system must be replaced as a single unit.
You'll find this design very common these days on all systems of this type.

Hello,

-restart the computer
- run troubleshoot on the laptop and through dell.com
- reset the computer with files
-reset the computer without files
-checked the BIOS
- reinstall/uninstall the touchscreen driver ( it does not automatically reinstall btw)
-update the driver: it was found that all drivers are up to date on my laptop

Under device manager, the HID compliant touchscreen is greyed out and there is an error code that says "
Currently, this hardware device is not connected to the computer. (Code 45)
To fix this problem, reconnect this hardware device to the computer."
I have contacted dell technical support via phone and could not help me. I am a student who goes out of the United states for school.

thanks in advance

A:inspiron 7559 4K display (16GB ram, 960m GPU )

If that's the case (as is common with Insprons), this system is software-controlled - the Intel GPU alone has a connection to the screen and handles all video data -- even if it's processed through the nVidia GPU.  You cannot disable the Intel GPU nor make the nVidia GPU the primary one - the hardware is wired such that the nVidia GPU is a co-processor - not a true discrete GPU.

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.

10-31-2015 @ 4.25pm On the A740, I figured out that it will allow 16GB laptop RAM stick in its single memory slot. However, I did find out that a 16GB single-slot laptop memory stick will work on the A740and will get you to 16GB memory on only one memory slot (which the A740 has). The A730 was easier because it has two memory stick slots (so you could do 2 * 8gb = 16GB),but A740 only has one memory slot.  Therefore, you can not go with two of the cheaper 8gbmemory, because you have to spend more on the 16GB single-stick laptop.  So, hopethis helps other people.

Hi,

Are G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1066 (PC3 8500) (F3-8500CL7D-8GBRL) compatible with Inspiron 560?
Based on the recommendation in  http://en.community.dell.com/support-forums/desktop/f/3514/t/19524134.aspx, I bought these, but I get double beep error code, which corresponds to "No RAM". I've seated them correctly, so installation was not a problem.
Perhaps Inspiron 560 cannot house a 4GB rams?

I just recently picked up a Dell Inspiron 17R 5720 w/ an 3rd gen i5 3210M and a HM77, A19 Bios....I was wondering if anyone can help find the max supported ram and Cas Latency it could take? Specs say I cant go past 8GB but I read the i5/HM77 can go up to 32GB? They also say to use DDR3L-1600 but when I go on crucial or new egg they say I can use DDR3L-1866? It currently has just an 8GB DDR3L-1600, dude before me was running the max 8GB on one slot and a 4GB on the other for some reason so I want to pick up a pair to utilize the dual channel. It recognized the 12GB he had in it so I figured the 16GB might work

Any insight would be great

Thanks

Anyone know if Inspiron screen are compatible across different models if the the screen size is the same?
Are the pin connections the same? I'm not worryed about it fitting "just right."

I've have a 1501 and I'm looking at a buying a striped down 9400 to rebuild. The setup looks the same, however I can seem to find a straight answer poking around the web. That leads me to think no. I don't have enough knowledge of dells to say for sure.

I will post pictures the Frankenstien if it works.

Hi all,
I am planning on purchasing the 15" 7000 laptop shown below:

I would like to add an additional HDD, but don't want to get one that wouldn't fit! I ideally want a relatively high capacity, at least 2TB. However, anything above that would be better. Does anyone have any suggestions of a compataible HDD?
Thanks.

I would like to know if the current LCD I have with the model number of LP133WH2(SP)(B1) is compatible with LTN133HL03 or with any other 1080P displays.

A:Display Compatibility Inspiron 13 7347

There's no way to know unless the seller you purchase from can guarantee it's a part Dell shipped - notebook LCDs are not universally interchangeable.

I am an artist and would like to use the touchscreen with a stylus to sketch. Is there a stylus available that can do this? I cannot find it listed under accessories for this model.

A:Inspiron 15-5579 2-in-1 laptop, stylus pen compatibility?

If you don't see a stylus listed, the system has a touchscreen -- not a digitizer, which is what you need for full, pressure-sensitive pen support.
If you want full pen support, some of the Inspiron 15-7000 series models have it.  These are going to start in the $900 range -- not he mid-$600 range the 5000 series does.  The digitizing screen alone adds a couple of hundred dollars to the cost of the system - you're not going to find pen support much below $900-1,000 systems.

Hi, I would like to upgrade my dell inspiron 15 5547   1366 × 768 screen to FHD. I know I have to buy the actual screen and probably appropriate cable. Other than that will I have any compatibility issues?

Hi,
I have recently upgraded my Dad's Inspiron 15-5547 laptop by replacing the standard HDD with a Samsung 850 EVO SSD drive.
Having swapped out the drive and installed Windows 10 everything seemed in place, however, the system soon started to have issues.
The power button became unresponsive, some times making it impossible to turn on the system, other times finally doing so after 8+ presses.
This behaviour made the system very frustrating to use.
I removed the SSD and reinstalled the original HDD and the system and power button then work flawlessly again.
Is there any known compatibility issue between the Inspiron 15-5547 and Samsung Evo 850?
Are there any other reasons why installing the SSD would lead to issues like this?
Thanks in advance for any help.

I have read somewhere in the forums that my dell inspiron n5010 can support ddr3 12800 1600mh so I went ahead and purchased some ADATA ddr3 1600(11) agx8 so-dimm AD3S 1600W4G11-S

You can see the link I bought it from here:

I bought 2 of these 4gb ram modules and installed them in my laptop. When I turn my laptop on it trys to start but shows some lines on the screen and sometime like an old tv running analogue signal and showing snow. It then turns off on its own after about half to one minute.

When I go to the bios I can see that the system has recognized 8gb of ram but it says speed 1066mh.
I don't know what the issue is so if anybody knows or has a suggestion to fix this please reply to this post.

A:Dell Inspiron N5010 Ram compatibility issue

RAM speed is CPU-dependent - if you have an i5 or lower CPU, 1066 MHz is the fastest you'll get even with faster memory installed.
Try the modules one at a time in each socket - you may have a bad module or a bad memory socket.

I recently purchased a Dell Inspiron 530 computer and i am waiting for it to be shipped. These are the specs.

Inspiron 530 Intel® Core™2 Q6600 Quad-Core (8MB L2 cache,2.4GHz,1066FSB)

Memory 4GB Dual Channel DDR2 SDRAM at 667MHz- 4DIMMs

Video Card Integrated Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 3100

Hard Drive 500GB Serial ATA Hard Drive (7200RPM) w/DataBurst Cache™

Operating System Genuine Windows® XP Home Edition, English
I called Dell technical support and asked them if the new video card i purchased would work in my new system. they told me my power supply was like 250 watts or 300 watts or something. To be honest i couldnt understand them very well. i said that on the geforce box it sais i need 400 watt minimum req. the dell representative said i should be fine installing it. and that the 250 isnt watts its 250 something else. i am probably mistaken. will i be able to use my new GeForce 8800 GT 512mb graphics card? Oh yea btw my computer does have PCI-Express enabled in it. Please can anyone help me?
