Inspiron one 2020

Q: Inspiron one 2020

Working on a PC for a friend...
Part of the display dims...looked like a bad backlight so i ordered a Converter board.
The part I ordered looks exactly like the part from the manual for her pc(got the manual for her service tag #)
When I went to replace it the one in her pc had a different connecter???
The one on the right was in her pc...all searches have turned up the one on the left. Any thoughts on where i can get the one on the right?

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.)

Greetings & Salmenella
The upper memory slot on the motherboard of my Inspiron One 2020 is beeping known stop , two beep intervals. No matter what memory I put in the beeping continues. It only stops if i have one memory stick in the lower slot.  
I need help on verifying the correct motherboard to purchase or if there a different Dell mother board that I can upgrade to that will fit in the case housing. I dont mind if I have to make cuts or small holes on the back plate, since I already made holes for a tuner card I bought after I purchased the model that did not have the openings for the TV cable. 
I really dont wanna go buy a brand new computer for a bad 4meg memory slot. I have a solid state , the 8 gigs of ram ,and 2 gigs of ramdisk, it runs fast enough that I dont think about buy a new computer. But losing that 4gigs of ram in the bad memory slot. Holy Ding dongs, the hard drive takes for ever to stop making noise, surfing slows down  and compiling and writing visual basic for class takes forever.
Now for the short version.

What is the correct mother board model to replace an Inspiron One 2020 or is there a higher brand model that a mother board will fit my AIO housing and fit  all my computer guts. I have a iCore 5 -2390T cpu.

 Love,
Stu

Hey, just wanted to know what the most powerful, compatible processors are for this system (Inspiron one 2020, LGA 1155 socket, System board: 0MTFWP, BIOS A07) I couldn't find any documentation on the processors that are compatible with this version of the bios. Would an I5 or an I7 work with it?

A:Inspiron one 2020 processor upgrade

Hi Charles198

Thanks for writing to us. 
The system has been tried and tested with only model of i5 processor. i.e. 
I5-2390T
i7 will not work. 
But we have come across situations where few of our customers have tried parts that were not tested by Dell, for few it worked like a charm, and for few it was little to no luck.

I'm trying to replace the motherboard in my AIO, Dell Inspiron One 2020. Since I've never done anything like this before, I'm following the User Manual exactly. I just ran into my first problem. The manual simply says "Disconnect all the cables from their connectors on the system board.' Well, that's not been as easy for me as it sounds. I'm hoping someone with prior experience will reply with a tip, trick or suggestion. My problem is I can't get the cables out of the connectors on the motherboard. With the exception of the hard drive and optical drive cables, there's not much to get hold of. I don't see any mechanical catches that need to be released. I assume I should not pull on the wires, just the male connector that is attached to the wires. I assume I should not use tools, but I'm considering the use of needle nose pliers, unless someone can offer me a better suggestion. I hope there's someone out there whose done this before and can offer helpful suggestions. Thanks.

Shelquis,
You just need to sometimes be a little forceful if the cable is stuck. Maybe squeeze the sides of the cable connector when pulling up.
Here are some tools you may need as well.
Phillips screwdriver • Hex nut driver • Plastic scribe

Hi!
I've a DELL INSPIRON ONE 2020 All-In-One PC (purchased on 15th April, 2013). I installed the Insider's Build of Windows 10 x64 about 2 months ago. I wasn't satisfied with it's performance, so I decided to reinstall Windows 8 in it (which came preinstalled as OEM when I purchased the PC). But unfortunately (for me), the DELL BACKUP AND RECOVERY software which I discretely installed in it failed to apply the factory image with error somewhat stating, "DBAR failed to apply the image". Also, the Dell Backup and Recovery is not even available in the Bootup Recovery mode and not even if I press F8 or other function keys. I googled and found methods to apply the image using ImageX tool in boot mode. I put the hotfix KB2525084 (actually the ImageX tool) in my Pendrive and in the recovery mode, I used Command Prompt and typed the follwing command:
j:\imagex /apply f:\DELL\Image\PART0001\EFI.wim 1 c:\
where j:\ is my pendrive ; f:\ was the partition with .wim image in it ; c:\ was the OS path to be recovered.
It completed in just 4 seconds! But other websites stated that it would take around 15-20 minutes to complete applying the image. I understood that something is fishy, and I was right! The PC didn't boot again. Also the apllied image showed just somewhat 250mb of data, but my hard disk (named PBR Image) was of around 9gb in size. The swm files in it (2 in nos.) were around 4gb each. I looked another forum and that stated to format the C:\ drive. I... Read more

At one point I was told MSSE was bare min for security, so I purchased AVG security suit and it was so restrictive I uninstalled it. Now my MSSE no longer works AND Win 7 has passed end of life Jan 2020...
I tried to reinstall it before EOS, but had an error of "I already have anti malware installed, please uninstall", so I uninstalled MSSE from control panel and I seen I have "malwarebytes(free ver)" installed too, so I tried to uninstall
and had error "can't find uninstal000.dat file"... And Yes, I can search for it, it's just gone... I did find uninstal000.exe, but no .dat
So, I checked the security status tab under action center and it shows that MSSE is ON and working correctly and windows defender is OFF and I can't start WD, can't turn OFF MSSE...
I used current ver of malwarebytes to scan the computer and it found nothing wrong, I also use OutByte Pc Repair to scan/fix things and I think it does a great job on my other machines...

-How do I remove the malwarebytes entry off installed programs list? I want to Delete the program folder, I don't think the software works any longer because it won't start (passed trial date maybe)... But it still shows as being installed...

You can download that from Microsoft (see below).  That said, before reloading the OS, run an extended hard drive diagnotic (F12 at powerup) to rule out the possibility that the drive is faulty and the cause of the problem.

A:Cant delete 2020 Search

How was it "removed" originally? Have you deleted the programs folder for it? Are there any executables still running?

If you are just seeing it in Add/Remove programs and no place else, that's a registry edit.

You must find the listing for the program under this key (run regedit):

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall

And right click on it and delete it. It's possible it might be one of the "clsid" keys (numbered entries). If you don't find a program folder name, you must open each clsid and look in the right pane for it. If you are in doubt, don't delete anything, or select File > Export and save the key first as a reg file. You can restore it by doubleclicking

Is Windows 7 Support System Still Active in 2020?

A:Is Windows 7 Mainstream Support will also end in 2020?

On January 13, 2015, Microsoft will stop mainstream support for Windows 7--which is still an extremely popular operating system. But you'll still be able to use it safely for another five years.
This isn't anything like the run-up to the end of XP support back in April, when everyone in the tech press (including me) warned you about dire consequences if you continued to use XP. That was the end of extended
support, which is far more serious than the end of mere mainstream support.
Once mainstream support ends, there will be no more service packs. Microsoft won't redesign the environment or add new features. Without a special extended agreement, you won't get patches for bugs that don't result
in a security threat.
But if you like Windows 7, you probably don't really need new service packs, and you certainly don't want a redesigned user interface. As long as Microsoft patches vulnerabilities that could become security risks,
Windows 7 remains a safe operating system.
Microsoft doesn't plan to stop fixing security problems in Windows 7 until extended support ends. That's January 14, 2020--five years and a day from the end of mainstream support.
If that doesn't put you at ease, consider this: XP's mainstream support ended in April 2009. It caused no problems whatsoever. Millions continued to use XP for another five years without people like me warning
them of dire consequences. Windows 7 won't be any different.
Vista mainstream support ended on April 10, 2012. Exte... Read more

If MS is ending their security updates for W7 in 2020, then how often is MS currently releasing security updates?

A:2020 end-date - So how often is MS currently updating security for W7?

Every month - unless they feel the need to release out of band.

Hello community!

Recently I've been pondering buying the AT2020 microphone (just a detail) and was thinking of getting the normal USB version, to save myself some hassle. As some of you might know, Windows 8 has some sort of driver problem with USB mics, so now I'm thinking of getting the AT2020 XLR version and buying something like a Blue Icicle to convert it into a USB signal and connecting it into my PC.

The main question is: Will this work? Will the volume levels still be affected?

I'm no Pro on these things, and since both mics would be connected to the computer via USB I really don't know why it'd matter if the original signal is USB or XLR. May someone enlighten me?

A:Audio-Technica 2020 XLR microphone on Windows 8.1?

I have a recording studio.

If I wanted a standard P.A. type mic to use with a PC, I would get either a small preamp to amplify the low level mic signal to a useable level by the PC (almost "line level"), or just get a USB connected recording interface unit. There are some inexpensive units that would do the job.

USB isn't a problem, that I've found with my USB devices, but if you are using Windows 8.1, some devices must have 8.1 devices to work or work properly. All my devices work on 8.1. I have a Roland Studio-Capture and an Octa-Capture USB recording interface units. A Behringer BCF2000 control surface and a Frontier Tranzport that only has Vista drivers but works OK.

Hi everyone!

I'm looking to get replacements for the system restore disks provided with my VPR Matrix (Best Buy) 2020 desktop. I've contacted Best Buy, and they seemed confused by the concept; I contacted Geek Squad, and they referred me to the Best Buy store...so, I'm out of luck there. Does anyone know where I might go about getting these?

Alternatively, might my computer have a hidden partition with the restore information, and if so, how would I access it?

Thanks in advance for any advice.

Two points,

in the first instance contact these guys.

http://www.vprmatrix.com/customer_desktops_2020.asp

In the mean time turn off your PC and restart it, during the restart procedure hold down CTRL + F11 if you have a resrtore partition on your PC this will invoke the restore procedure.

Note: The key sequence CTRL + F11 is becoming the standard but is not always the case. Consult your PC hand book for more details.

My computer seems to have been infected with something. It is not affecting the performance of the PC, I can still run MBAM and other scanners and can also connect to the internet. I received 4 or 5 popups when I clicked on a link this evening, similar to the lower one shown in the screenshot I have linked to at the bottom, (I thought there was an attack file feature here?). I didn't get the chance to screencap them all.A program called "Desktop Security 2010" has been installed on my computer, which keeps throwing up messages telling me I'm infect and I need to buy a license key, and tells me the same thing when I try to uninstall the program. I am currently running a full MBAM scan, and it should be finished soon.Sorry there isn't too much information, like I said there's nothing really happening to my PC other than the popups, but I'll certainly explain anything as best I can if you have questions. Can anyone help me out? Screencap of messages: http://i40.tinypic.com/2egffrt.jpgEDIT: Sorry, I didn't see the removal guide in the tutorials section.EDIT2: I've tried the removal tutorial and it won't work. MBAM doesn't find any infected files.

I'll be doing a new install of Win 10, going from Win 7 on a desktop machine.

Have used True Image 2014 for making images along the way (lots of apps) for not only for when I put in the new system - but for secondary means of backup. Making clones is easiest for me; if anything too serious with the drive crops up then (virus, drive wear, etc.) then I simply plug in a new cloned magnetic.

However I'll now be installing an ssd for the OS.

Checking out reviews of the 2020 version I'm finding quite a bit more negative reviews than my prior version that cite difficulty with install, mounting an image back and more...

Is there anything to be concerned about? Never had I a problem with their 2014 ver.
