I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

Hello, I had the Power Manager from the windows store and it was working fine until today. Today, I decided to reset windows to refresh my system (there was nothing wrong with it), Now, I install the power manager and it gives me the picture attached here:

Unfortunately, when I hit no, the program closes. If i select yes, I can only view the battery's life and not the ability to set max charge or minimum charge or adaptive  charge etc. If I try to download this same program off of Dell's website (which is compatible with 7577 NOT 7567 for whatever reason) it won't let me. The easy fix is to of course find the DPM component service but I cannot find that anywhere!! So any help will be appreciated. This is a big pretty deal, as I made an account just for this reason. I find the  dell power manager very helpful and love the program, but now I am beginning to question whether Dell intentionally makes the programs only for their latest laptops and products, which is ***.

I have done the custom settings for battery from dell power management. I have set that the battery should start charging when it is at 50% and stop charging at 80%. When the battery has charged 80%.It has stopped charging. But the discharging of the battery is not happening itself. I have to remove the ac power so that the laptop should start using battery instead of ac power. The battery should self discharge when it reaches 80% and start charging when it reaches 50%. which is not happening currently. Can any suggest any solution.

I have two Inspiron 15 5000 series approx 2 years old each with 3 year Premium Warranty. Up until recently the service tags for the Laptops have been valid in the Dell Support portal but now they are not.
Regardless of whether I key the service tag or use autodeteect, the service tags are not recognised by Dell.
This occurred just after I ordered a third Inspiron 15 5000 series a few days ago. I am concerned that Dell have somehow messed up my account information.
I rang support and told them the story and they said they will pass the information on to the relevant departments/teams but did not give me a reference number or anything to be able to follow this up. Not impressed at all with this approach.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

System Specs: Part1 Part2

Lenovo Ideapad Y500: 16GB RAM, 1TB HDD, Dual Nvidia GeForce GT 650M 2GB

OK, my problem is: No version newer than the GeForce 307.64 Driver will allow me to utilize SLI.

If you wanna see what I mean, here's the before and after.

My problem isn't really the fact that a whole year's worth of bugfixes, security and performance updates have gone away. I can live with that. My problem is, if I use the old driver that allows for me to run in SLI mode, any game that supports SLI causes my laptop to crash (with no BSOD, so I can't get any sort of error code) immediately after it runs. One weird thing is (see Part2): It still shows I have 4GB of vRAM even though only one 2GB graphics card is actually being utilized.

Can someone help me or give me some advice? It's a little frustrating.

It's the difference between holding steady at 60 with vsync in high/ultra on most games or being barely able to run it at all above medium/high.

TL;DR: Updated to Windows 8.1. SLI support went away for the last year of revisions of Nvidia GeForce drivers. Crashes every time I run games in SLI mode on the driver that actually supports it.
 

A:Updated to Windows 8.1. No SLI Support for latest Nvidia Drivers.

Seems to be common issue with this model: https://www.google.ca/search?q=windows+8.1+sli+site:forums.lenovo.com&espv=210&es_sm=122

Doesn't seem to be a solution yet, you will have to wait for fix from Lenovo or NVidia or go back to Windows 8 or 7.

I am constantly having this problem with my laptop. As I plug in and unplug my headphones throughout the day, I've noticed that after a couple times the bass gets really quiet and almost completely drops out. Since I have some pretty decent audiophile headphones with really great bass, it is super annoying and noticeable. 
One workaround I have discovered is to go to the audio settings (either in Windows or the Dell Audio app), and switch the Default Format (the thing with 24-bit, 48000Hz in it)  to something else, play some audio, then switch it back. 
A little word on my setup: I have the latest drivers from the Dell download page installed. I am running Windows 10 64-bit with all the updates. I have Waves Maxx audio "enhancements" disabled. My Default Format is usually set to 24-bit 48000Hz, but the problem eventually happens no matter what I set it to. The "headphone size" option is set to "Medium", but as far as I can tell this option does nothing if I do not have Waves Maxx enabled. Switching it also does not fix the problem.
If I play audio using WASAPI (this basically means that the music player takes over the sound card completely, and bypasses whatever audio processing Windows and the driver has) the problem does not happen. 
How do I fix this problem? It's incredibly annoying, and most likely has something to do with the audio driver, since this does not happen in Linux, and it did not happen when I was runn... Read more

It's an Inspiron 7520 with discrete video - any board for that model with that video will work.  That said, putting $250-300 into a board (plus labor) into a 4-year old system makes for a questionable economic choice -- you are probably better off putting that money toward a new system.

Hello, I have been having problems with Windows 7 explorer constantly crashing and restarting whenever I right-click on or open any files and folders, search in the Start Menu search box, opening My Computer, Control Panel, etc. In essence, it is limiting most of the interface. I was able to pinpoint the problem using Safe Mode and msconfig to the 'Power' service (C:\windows\system32\svchost.exe ?k DcomLaunch). And once I disabled the 'Power' service, everything seems to be fixed.

However, disabling the 'Power' service will disable audio service for the system. To fix the audio service, I tried changing the Power management, reverting back to previous restore points, updating the audio device drivers, trying to enable the Windows services in services.msc for 'Remote Procedure Call (RPC)', 'Plug and Play', 'Multimedia Class Scheduler', 'Windows Audio Endpoint Builder' and 'Windows Audio' to activate sound again, but 'Window Audio' depends on 'Windows Audio Endpoint Builder', but 'Windows Audio Endpoint Builder' seems to depends on the 'Power' service. And I can?t activate the ?Power? service again without crashing Windows explorer. How do I go about fixing this issue? Can I replace the ?Power? service files? Or update them? And help is much appreciated. Thanks in advance!

EDIT: Rewritten for clarity
On Realtek ALC3861 Audio Driver (ver. 6.0.1.7525, A00) for Windows 10, there is no longer a button labeled "Show Meters" under Speakers/Headphones > Maxx Audio Pro in the bottom right corner (please see attached screenshot). This button in previous versions of the driver for Windows 7 opened a new window with sliders to balance front and back speakers in a surround sound setup.
What I did:
Updated my OS from 7 to 10 and updated the Realtek audio drivers accordingly - to the above mentioned version.
What I expected:
The "Show Meters" button would be present in the newest Realtek driver.
What really happened:
Upon upgrade to the newest driver, the "Show Meters" button disappeared.

I have reinstalled the newest driver multiple times with no avail and tried the driver from Windows 8.1 and the default driver from Realtek with worse affects (Dell Audio window is missing most elements/drop down options, etc)

If anyone would know how to address the issue, if this is intentional, or who to escalate this to, I would appreciate it.

A:Latest Version of Dell Audio is missing "Show Meters" button. (Windows 10, Dell XPS 8700)

I feel that I should be more observant. In Control Panel > Sound > Playback > Select the Realtek device > Properties > Levels there are the exact changes I need. I don't know why I didn't notice until now. Could explain why there was no "Show Meters" button in this release but I thought Windows 7 also had the same leveling and there was the leveling in Dell Audio as well.
I'm still going with a new sound card from Creative however, seen a super nice $70 one that looks awesome and seems to have features to match.

After having been in touch with Dell support for nearly three months, I decided to recount my experiences here, mainly to provide insights for future Dell customers as to what their rights are, and to provide tips on how to effectively contact tech support.
I hope this guide can be of use for people struggling with their purchase as much as I did (and in fact, continue to).
Anyone having further insight to improve this article is welcome to leave notes here, and I will try to incorporate them in an update if deemed relevant.

I bought a Dell XPS 8900 about a year ago and have had 0 issues with the setup. Tonight, the SupportAssist Dell App popped up saying my system needed critical system updates. Listed was a BIOS update (don't recall the version number). I let it install and update the BIOS but now my computer goes from the black and white DELL logo screen to a support assist white screen that appears because I have removed a fan in order to install a Radeon Fury X. I usually have to hit escape from that screen to load windows but instead the boot process starts all over again and I go back to the black and white DELL logo screen and the process stays in this endless loop. I have loaded the BIOS options and it says 2.1.10 as the BIOS version. I have tried to both use BIOS restore and Downgrade BIOS but nothing works and my system refuses to boot Windows. Is there an older BIOS version I can manually flash to correct this issue? I have had no issues with anything prior to updating the BIOS so can only assume that is the culprit. Perhaps an incorrect or corrupt BIOS upgrade? I let the computer do its thing and had no power outage, <profanity> thing just refuses to boot Windows. I cannot even get safe mode to come up (if I am using the proper keyboard command that is).

Did you try resetting BIOS by removing the motherboard battery and pressing/holding the power button for ~30 sec before reinstalling the battery?

Hi, I just bought the dell 7559 4k laptop, it works great but right after updating the laptop with latest windows 10 update, there is a weird mouse lag on the desktop screen. The lag only seems to appear on the desktop, or if the mouse if hover over the taskbar at the bottom. The lag is really annoying and its hard to describe, like the mouse cursor just move very very slowly, sometime you will do the action (moue your finger on the touchpad) but the mouse wont move, and then suddenly it will move. If someone else is having this issue with the Dell 7559 4k series please let me know if there is a solution. I have alredy updated the BIOS, updated all intel driver and the nvidia drivers.

When will Windows 7 RTM support end?

I think after end of support date, Windows will state my PC as not genuine (even Windows was activated in earlier time), black desktop and restart every hour.

A:Windows 7 (no service pack) end of support date

Windows XP, to date, after several years of being released from the market still has updates support from Microsoft but is scheduled to be stopped any year from now. I bet that won't be the same issue with Windows 7 though as many people still uses it even when Windows 8 is officially released. I'm getting this as not just an updates support from Microsoft but rather a full support to a particular OS overall.

According to https://support.microsoft.com/en-gb/lifecycle/search/default.aspx?alpha=windows%208
Windows 8 Service pack support end date Jan 12, 2016
--- Does this mean Windows 8 will be unsafe to use then?

A:Windows 8 Service pack support end date Jan 12, 2016

Hi cmptrgy Yes, it means that starting on January 12th 2016, if you want to receive security updates for your Windows 8 system, you'll have to upgrade to Windows 8.1, so Windows 8 can be considered vulnerable then.
