Hello there,
I'm about to Upgrade my DELL VOSTRO 5470's 4GB RAM to 8GB RAM. Therefor, I would love to ask a question about RAM. Is it that important to buy necessarily the RAM from dell website which was DELL sticker? For instance, I found another cheaper and seemingly very good and reasonable RAM's from Crucial and This another one entitled "DMS Certified RAM"..
So would those RAM's work fine? are they suitable and fully compatible? or I definitely have the one sole choice to by 95 Euro priced RAM on DELL Website?  I think that's pretty expensive..

Thanks a lot!

Hello,
I have a dell vostro 5470 and I feel like my HDD is so slow. So I want to upgrade my disk but I'm not sure what can be the best solution for me. As far as I know I have an extra msata half size slot which is not used.
Can I use these M.2 ssds? As an example: 
Or some people say it is possible to plug a msata ssd even if the slot is half size.
Or should I go with typical SSD by replacing my HDD? Something like samsung evo 850

Many thanks,

A:Dell Vostro 5470 S21F45C

If you did MSATA you would have to make sure its only half sized.  The MSATA drive could just be a caching drive.  Your safest bet would probably just replace the HDD with an SSD like the EVO 850 you mentioned.

Hello,
 Perhaps anyone could advise what to do.
Just noticed that my laptop isn't charging, checked the charger and cable - and strangely, it's the following. After I unplug the charger for a few seconds, and plug back in - LED lights up in green, as usual, but after a few seconds it fades and doesn't come back up. No charging happening either.
If it were fully broken somehow, I'd expect it to be completely "dead", so maybe this is something that could be remedied? Any suggestions?

Hello, I've formatted the computer 3 times to solve the non shutting down issue, so I'm starting to believe is somehow hardware related.
I was using Windows Insider Preview (fast ring) and then (slow ring). Last December, the laptop stop shutting down completely. It starts the process, video is black, no sign of disk activity but the on/off light start on and the fans are running. Only way is to hard power off with the button.
Reinstalling Windows from scratch solves at first boots, but then start failing again. I've moved to slow ring of Windows Insider. No luck. Then for the Windows 10 Pro that I'm running now.
All updates from Windows and from Dell Detect System were applied successfully. I've tried to run Intel Update tool. It detects the network driver could be updated, download and applied successfully, but no luck, the computer does not sleep completely nor hibernate.
I've tried disabling Hybrid sleep mode. I've tried to disable Hibernation all over (powercfg.exe /hibernate off) without working.
All seems well with the computer, excepts the shutting down process.

Hi all,
Unfortunately in the process of adding more ram to my dell laptop I managed to break a couple of the hinges on the base cover and lose the metal cylinder which surrounds the single captive screw.
The bottom of my laptop practically threatens to fall off now and the screw is constantly falling out. No amount of twisting secures the screw, which also makes me fear that I may have damaged something.
Any suggestions?  

A:Dell 7567 Gaming Bottom Cover and Screws

If the laptop is still functioning without the screw in place, I doubt you broke anything else. Replace the base cover. The part number is V71WR. Call Dell Spare Parts 1-800-357-3355 and ask for price and availability of the Dell part number. Or simply search the web for the part number.

Hi, 

Have anyone of you experiencing issues with your Dell vostro 5470 with window 10? I was upgraded free from W8.1 to W10 till last 3 weeks it caused issue where fan kept spinning even after the OS has shut down completely. Done so many diagnosis but still the same. So Dell wanted me to downgrade it back to W8.1
But after, I tried so many times to upgrade it back to window 10, it downloaded the OS, and installed but when it's installed updated for about 25% and restarted the PC for further update, it got stuck at the Dell boot up logo and stays there forever.
Have anyone facing the same issue? When I checked on Dell website, it seems like Vostro 5470 was left behind from testing the drivers for window 10 latest update!! W8.1 such a pain actually.
Can anyone suggest anything?

Hello;
I have a problem with my Vostro 5470. I wanted to upgrade the current ram from 4 gb to 8 gb so I opened the machine in order to check which RAM I have in order to buy a similar one and to check if I had 2 or 1 slot for a RAM. I took out the ram and the put it back again. Assembled the machine but when I tried to turn it again it didn't turn on.
The computer is dead. When I press the power button the battery led blinks solid once for about 1 ot 2 seconds and then nothing happens. I did some search and already tried removing the battery connector and removing the CMOS battery too, but the same thing keeps happening.
Here is a video of how it behaves; https://youtu.be/ro6KX_vF85Q
Could it be that I killed the MOBO when I removed the ram?
Any suggestions are highly appreciated.

I have checked and could not find a Dell Adapter compatible with your specific system model. However, these two are known to work with other Vostro models and it might or might not work on your machine. You probably need to try it out and let us know - http://dell.to/1Y9DDqo
Or if you are looking only to duplicate the display, you could get a HDMI splitter - usually priced under $10.

Hello, I'm time trying to solve the Error 43 problem of off-board nvidia card.
So far I've been through 4 Dell support technicians, have ran numerous websites and forums looking for solution and nothing.
Have tested Windows 7, 8, 8.1 and 10, all x86 and x64.
I also tested the BIOS A09 A10 A11 and A12. It was on the A9 that the board took that breath does not appear the error 43 and was with Windows 8.1 x64, but even not showing error on the card, the Nvidia manager not detect the card, so could not use it. (Not recommend staying changing BIOS, I ventured to do so is dangerous and can damage your notebook permanently)
There are several people in forums and such talking about the same problem, the vast majority managed to solve only updating the BIOS or by downgrading the A12 to A11 or A10. For me no solution worked.
I wonder if anyone has any definitive solution to this persistent problem ...
