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.)

I just remembered to update my system specs for the extra info about my laptop, and I figured I might as well announce the good news for any poor wanderer searching for such info. A few months ago, I installed Win 7 32-bit on my Dell XPS M1210 ultra-portable laptop, and everything has been wonderful!

The laptop itself is from 2006, but at the time I maxed out the specs, and have since taken the best care of it, so it's running perfectly. I'm pretty sure 7 is even faster on it than XP ever was. All of the drivers automatically installed immediately while the OS was installing itself. The only thing I had to install myself was my Synaptics touchpad, so I could turn off tap-to-click, which otherwise was working as a normal default touchpad should. The system also bugged me about installing a driver for my SD memory card reader, but it actually worked even without it. What really surprised me is that my nVidia GeForce Go 7400 was able to do dual-screen without any further configuration! I still haven't installed the extra tools for it, but as I have a behemoth desktop with 2 screens, I do that work here, and the dual screen on the laptop is only used anymore for watching movies on the TV. Since I've figured out HomeGroup, I usually stream movies from my desktop in the bedroom to the laptop plugged into the TV in the living room. Not a single issue. All in all, 7 on this laptop is awesome!

A:Report for Win 7 Pro x86 on Dell XPS M1210 Laptop

Thanks for the success story!

Your story is especially heartening since it's still not fully sunk in that Win7 is driver-complete in the installer and via optional Updates with few exceptions. Many still following XPired methods think they have to change out all their drivers like chipset and run into problems. Win7 is the authority on its own drivers.

I have a Dell xps M1210. I know little to nothing about computer hardware. My laptop crashed sometime ago. It was reformatted and everything to the best of my knowledge was re-installed. I am running Windows XP Pro.
My laptop appears to get on the wireles network at my office. I sent my laptop home with one of my guys... and after some tinkiering he says he could get on at his place. I bring my laptop home and the same thing occurs, my laptop sees our network here at home, tries to connect but is "unable to connect". The wireless is intel(R)Proset...? Generally when somebody tries to access my home network I get an intruder alert. My network has shown no warnings about my laptop trying to connect to it. We've used Home Network Magic previously ( came as a free trial on my XPS when I purchased it). My wireless router is a d-link extreme.
My home network is accessed by my wife's Mac.
I hope there is something really elementary as far as a solution for my situation. When it comes to computer I am a total caveman.
Thanks... If I'm in the wrong area for this kind of question, apologies, hopefully I can get pointes in the right direction.

Vista, Intel Centino duo

I press the power button and it does nothing except turn the blue power button and green lights on. It does not start up at all. Its the same with the Media Direct button.

First, it had blue lines down the screen a couple weeks ago. That seemed to be solved by the F12 hardware assessment. When we got it to boot up again, we ran a full virus scan and found nothing. We did a really in-depth hardware scan and found no problems. Later it would freeze and then go to Blue then red then green then white screens at start up. Today it kept freezing on the welcome screen and once on a white screen. It started once in safe mode but that's all. Now it won't do anything.

I'd greatly appreciate any help/advice. Thank you! Sorry if this is the wrong forum to post to.

I have a Dell XPS M1210 running Win 7 Professional. Did a clean install on a brand new hard disk from a self-burned DVD (from the MS Student Discount program).

Some specs: C2D T7200 2.0G, 4GB DDR2, NVIDIA 7400, WD3200BEKT, A08 BIOS

Ever since the install (back in January), the laptop can only sleep/wake once. The laptop experienced no issues when running XP/Vista.

Boot -> Login -> Sleep -> Wake -> Sleep -> Hang -> BSOD (sometimes)

This problem is reproducible 100% of the time. I checked the system log between sleep attempts. Windows always logs the same error that reads:

"The platform firmware has corrupted memory across the previous system power transition. Please check for updated firmware for your system." The error cites the HAL as its source. The first and last corrupted page is always 63. Subsequent attempts to put the laptop to sleep cause the system to hang. Only the screen/wifi turn off - the rest of the computer is powered. The only way out is to press and hold the power button.

Microsoft does have a paper detailing the issue, and suggests updating the BIOS. However, the most recent version of the firmware for my system is already installed. I have tried updating stock Windows drivers with those from the manufacturer (ie Dell, Intel Chipset), but that did not help. Device manager shows no hardware conflicts/problems.

Are there any other XPS M1210 owners experiencing the same problem, or is this an isolated incident?

A:Dell XPS M1210 can't sleep more than once

Personally I don't recommend using sleep functions in Windows. While it may work wonders in Unix based systems, it's not quite as refined in DOS based systems. It frequently hangs, disrupts processes and causes BSODs. Just shut down your computer when not in use, if you have a decent system it should take no more than ~60 seconds to boot.

I re-installed Windows on my Dell xps m1210. I used the provided drivers and utilities CD to install the drivers and applications. However, the in-built webcam doesn't work.

It doesn't show up in the device manager as an installed working device or an unidentified hardware that drivers need to be installed for. It doesn't show up in the control panel or anything.

My daughter has a Dell XPS M1210 laptop running Windows XP Media Center Edition. She got fooled by PSGuard and thought she was downloading antispyware software after a warning came on her screen. She ended up with the TrojanDownloder.xs and the SmitFraud problem. With a lot of assistance from techs on this site (thank you, thank you....). I was able to fix all the problems. At least that is what I thought.

Recently she tried to burn a audio CD. The CD drive reads CD's and DVD's but won't allow her to record. The drive had worked in the past. Is there a chance there is still a registry problem here that is preventing the drive from recording? She has reloaded the software from Dell. She uses Itunes, Windows Media Center, Nero, which in the past has allowed her to record. All worked in the past.

Thanks in advance.

Hi all!

I have a Dell XPS M1210. It was running Windows XP Professional. It was running quite slowly, so I reformatted and installed Windows XP Media Center Edition. Even when I was just first installing drivers (that I loaded onto my flash drive from a safe, virus-free, and malware-free desktop with internet access) onto this M1210, it was taking 10-11 minutes to just log off.

I have the "welcome screen" turned off, so it says "Logging off..." for about 10-11 minutes (when I didn't have the "welcome screen" turned off, it was just a blank screen [my wallpaper, but no taskbar or icons]). Then, as soon as that's finished, it takes ~10 seconds to actually shut down.

It's not hanging during that ten or so minutes, as when I press the caps lock button, the light turns on.

When I run it in Selective Startup Mode, even with all of the start up options checked off, it logs off quickly and shuts down quickly. When put back into Normal Startup Mode, it goes right back to taking forever to just log off.

Something curious - in my System Information, the OS is listed as Windows XP Professional. However, the log off window says it's Windows XP Media Center Edition. When I was using the Windows XP Media Center Edition CD from Dell to install it onto the M1210, it said it was installing Windows XP Professional, but I thought nothing of it. Is this a mere coincidence?

I installed the drivers that I got directly from Dell's site. Th... Read more

So. The primary power button is non-responsive.

The media direct button works after you hold it for a few seconds.

It also loads into media direct if you put the battery back into the laptop automatically without touching any buttons.

It sometime spontaneously starts into media direct when the screen in closed and turned off.

I cannot gain access to the windows environment or bios, or access the boot Cd's because it won't turn on via the main power button.

Hi,

I've had a Dell XPS M1210 for about 15 months. I am running Vista Ultimate on it, now with SP1, before the RC1. Several times, I've had problems with files getting corrupt (about every month), which have made program being non-working. I also have problems with the wireless networking, but that's another problem...

I fixed the files with chkdsk and that sometimes solved it. I can't remember all files, but it has been the login, photoshop, office, logitech cam e.g. I couldn't even start up the computer without getting the message - file corrupt, run chkdsk several times. Luckily, the RC1 solved everything. Unfortunately, I had to uninstall it to install SP1 and that time everything crashed.

Now I have used the Dell restore to get the computer running (in April). Everything worked fine, but now I have gotten the files corrupt messages twice. Chkdsk has fixed it, everything seems to work ok. But I think it is only a matter of time before there will be more problems. Running the sfc/scannow shows there are some corrupt windows files...

Anyway, I called Dell about this and they recommend me doing a clean install from CDs instead of their image on my computer. I doubt that this will work. The only thing is that this will take an enormous amount of time (since I have to install Adobe CS3, Office, etc), even though they claim it is quick. Their support is pure BS, IMO.

But hard-drives do fail, and Dell use cheap ones. You may have had a head crash, in which case particles are floating around and the problems will get worse. Does the bad block count increase each time you run check disk?

I would not waste any more time reinstalling on this hard drive.

Hi all. A friend of mine dropped a small dell XPS 1210 into my lap. The laptop is really nice in that it is very tiny, but it seems to have a wierd display problem. I originally attributed it to a worn inverter card, but I am not sure. Anyway, the laptop will boot and before Windows XP can finish starting, the display will go dark. YOu can still see the icons and the system will function normally, but the backlighting is dead.

However, when you hook the unit up to S-Video output, the screen's backlighting will work normally, and it will also output a display onto the TV. When you plug the laptop into the charging receptical, the screen will go dim, but once again, hooking it to a television will revive the display.

Anyone ever heard of this? This is really wierd.

I am trying to figure out if the results I'm seeing for my M1210 in CrystalDiskMark are normal for this computer or not. Please see the attachment. I know ATA is limited to like 150MB/s but the results I'm seeing for some of the write speeds are sooo low. Is it because I put an SSD in this old computer? I think this is a great computer and it runs Windows 10 surprisingly well considering it's 10 years old so I would like to get it running full speed, any help is appreciated.
BTW I found a driver online that gets the Nvidia graphics working on Windows 10, it's so smooth opening and closing basic apps like Edge.

A:M1210 CrystalDiskMark results seem very low?

You're likely not going to get more than that -- this system is old enough it likely has a SATA to IDE bridge -- and no native support for AHCI.  Even if it's in AHCI mode, SATA 150 is the limit -- and you're at 126, so you're not likely to do better.

Over the last 2 days I have been having a problem as indicated in the title of this post. The fault has rectified itself 3 times, but again today, it is back to "battery plugged in, not charging." As I am running the laptop (Windows Vista Home Premium; 32 bit) on the adapter without problems, I assume that the adapter itself may not be faulty.
I also have a Dell Inspiron 630M laptop running Windows 7.  Can I safely use that adapter with the Vista laptop, without causing damage to the Vista ?  If it is safe to do so, and the battery on the Vista starts charging, then it would indicate that the Vista adapter/charger has some kind of fault.
Hoping someone can give me some guidance. Thanks.

If the adapter has the same plug and the same or higher power rating, you can swap them.
Check to see whether the 1545 recognizes the AC adapter or whether it shows unknown (F2 at powerup).  If it shows unknown with two different adapters, you have a bad power jack or a bad mainboard.

I wanted to buy a new laptop and found out about Dell 5577 on the internet. I wanted to know more about it. So in the evening, I went to nearby official Dell Store in Swastik Plaza, Vasant Vihar, Thane(W).

Over there, I met Sandeep Kanade, who is the customer representative at the store. He showed me a Dell 5577 which was on display. I tried it out for a few minutes.

The laptop was good but the display looked somewhat off. The colors were not vibrant and picture quality looked dull.

Before going to the store, I had read on the internet that recent Dell laptops have TN displays with poor screen quality. An alternative to TN is IPS display which has much better display quality.

So while I was trying out the on-display Dell 5577 laptop, I asked Sandeep if this display is IPS or TN. To which he replied that its an IPS display. Then I asked the price of the laptop. He said its 85,000 Rs.

Then I asked, what if there is an issue with laptop in first few days? He said that if there is any issue with the laptop, within the first week of purchase, he will replace it.

I told him that I will come by next morning to do the payment.

I need to know if you are absolutely sure you removed all traces of the virus - if you had the help of a forum they would have given you the "all clear". Have you tried starting in safe mode at all?

After connected my dell XPS 13 with Dell 34" ultra monitor via Kensington SD4000 universal docking station. Have video but no sound coming out from my ultra wide monitor. The only sound that I heard was from the XPS laptop. My Laptop's OS is window 10 and I tried to use Chrome and explorer Edge, none of the search engine is able to solve the problem. Moreover, I checked my all connective cables to/from the docking station and it seems fine to me. Please help!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hi, I had a GPU fail in my Dell Vostro 1500 laptop. The card that failed was an NVIDIA GeForce 8400 GS. The Vostro laptop actually can accept an NVIDIA 8600 GT card too. So I ordered the replacement part from Dell for the 8600 and they shipped me a refurbished unit.
The surgery to put in the new card took all night for hack like to do. I did not look carefully at the refurbished unit they shipped me as I was nervous handling the card (that I might break it).
But when I turned on the laptop after the installation, I did not get a pause at the BIOS saying “I see new hardware” like I did when I upgraded the RAM.
After the computer booted up I uninstalled the 8400 driver and then installed the 8600 driver. There was a snag at it’s possible that Windows automatically reinstalled the 8400 driver during one the required reboots but I KNOW that I wrote the 8600 driver over top at least (I had hoped to do a clean uninstall then reinstall but Windows tried to grab a driver for me).
So now when I right click on computers, properties device manager it shows the video as still the 8400 card. The 8400 card I removed has a sticker on it that says KU907 on it. The invoice for the 8600 that Dell sent for the 8600 says KU907 on it too.
I think I was sent the wrong part from Dell (I paid a higher price for the 8600 GPU) . Is it possible that a legacy driver is making the Vostro think it has the 8400 when the part IS an 8600. Or when I go to the Device Manager, does the computer physically c... Read more

I am very concerned. My laptop is consistently taking forever to start and/or freezing. Is it possible to uninstall anything dell related? Or how do I fix it?

I am no expert here, but it looks like the Update service is looking for a Recovery partition which may hold the WinRE tools.  On my current system, that would be partition 4 but it could be different on yours.  Running the command below in an administrative command prompt should show what partition is configured for the Tools.
reagentc /info
Have you made any changes to your drive configuration?  The reagentc info should show the same partition the Update Utility is looking for.

Hi there. I bought a Dell Inspiron 17R-5720 back in September 2012, and have been having this issue pretty much since I bought it from Amazon. The computer is running Windows 7 64 Bit, 6 GB RAM, Intel Core i5-3210M @ 2.50 GHz. I have Microsoft Security Essentials installed and run scans regularly.

Pretty much what happens is that the screen will turn to colored static, and the computer will be unresponsive. In order to make the machine usable again the power button must be held down and the computer restarted. The odd thing about it is that it almost always happens when I am in the process of moving the laptop from one place to another. For example moving the computer from my lap to the table next to me. It has happened once or twice when I just touched the computer while it was on the table next to me. A few times the screen just turned black.

Since it is still under warranty, I called Dell support and they sent out a technician, who didn't seem to do any sort of troubleshooting. He replaced the motherboard and the LCD display. This of course did not fix the problem, so I called Dell again. This time, they had me send the computer to them. They received and sent it out the very same day, again, it doesn't seem that they did any real troubleshooting. When the same malfunction cropped up again, I of course called Dell and they said that when they received the laptop there was some sort of cable inside that was "loose", so the connected this cable and sen...

A:Dell Laptop, Display Turns to Static/System Freezes, Dell Can't Fix

The technician Dell sent came to my house today. He replaced the motherboard (again), the LCD screen (again), and the hard drive. Fast forward five hours later, and guess what? The problem still hasn't been fixed. I just got off the phone with Dell support, of course their first suggestion was to send the computer in again and have them "fix" it. It took about an hour of going back and forth being on hold/arguing before they finally said they would "elevate" my case and and have someone call me on Monday to discuss it. I think I've given them plenty of chances to solve this, now I just want a replacement computer. Though with their track record, I'm not holding my breath. I'm even doubting that I'll get a phone call.

Does anyone think that this is power supply related? Not the power cord itself (I've used two different cords), but whatever is inside that powers the system. Sorry, I'm not that computer savvy.

When I attempt to start my laptop it goes to the Dell logo screen and will not boot Windows 8. Any suggestions?
I've had the computer less than a month and if I have to restore the system completely it will not cause much of a problem.

Thanks for the help in advance!

A:Dell Laptop w/ Windows 8 won't boot past dell logo screen

Hello Univers789,
Re-installing windows is the last resort. So before doing that, you can try the steps mentioned below which might fix the issue. 1. Restart the laptop and start tapping the F2 key at the Dell logo for enter the BIOS. 2. Navigate to the “Advanced” menu. 3. Change the SATA operation/selection in BIOS from Intel Smart Response to AHCI. 4. Press F10 to save changes and exit. 5. Reboot the system. 6. Go back into the BIOS by tapping the F2 key and change the SATA operation/selection in BIOS from AHCI to Intel Smart Response. 7. Save changes and exit by pressing the F10 key. 8. Reboot the system and it should boot normally into Windows. In case the above steps don’t fix the issue, run the Pre-Boot System Assessment (PSA / ePSA) Diagnostics. Run the test and check if gives any error code. Note down the error code and update me with the same, would let you know the next course of action. Please write back with results.

My home desktop is connected to a wireless router through AT&T U-verse and it's broadcasting just fine. I can see the name and everything when I try and connect on my laptop but there is always an error that brings me to a troubleshooting screen. I've made sure the password is correct by going to Start-Run, IPCONFIG and then typing my IP address into the address bar in my browser. I dont know what else I can do, I feel like I've tried everything! Help please.
 

A:Laptop (Win7 Dell Inspiron 1525) won't connect to desktop (XP Dell) wireless router

Sometimes, you need to replace the router.
Sometimes, you can call your service provider and ask them to take a look on line to see if the subscription needs to be refreshed.
But often, all that is needed (despite the fact that it is a lot of work) is to uninstall your existing system, then reboot, and reinstall everything.
You might also find success by looking at your device manager in Windows to see if you have any grey, red, or yellow flags by any related device. That may show you have a permanent hardware failure if you cannot restore it, then you are off to the store or your provider for a new cable modem or router.

Hello,
I am a property manager who manages some self-storage facilities. We recently had a few spaces go to auction and as a result the auction winners threw stuff they didn't want into the dumpster. I was emptying the trash from the office and noticed that someone had thrown a few laptops into the dumpster. As a tech nerd, I climbed into the dumpster and pulled the laptops from the garbage.
One of the laptops was a Dell laptop. I cleaned it up a bit and used one of my Dell laptop chargers to try and charge the battery overnight. Then, I hit the power button and hoped..... nada. Opened the back panel and immediately saw that it had no hard drive.... but the memory was still installed as well as the WIFI adapter. The screen was cracked but I had hope that it might still be usable once I could actually get the laptop to boot.
So, I pulled out one of my old SATA laptop hard drives, re-formatted it and installed it in the laptop.
Hit the power button and saw that I could not install Win10 from the USB port since the laptop had an admin password installed and of course, I had no idea what it was. So, I called Dell and gave them all the laptop info and my personal info and they gave me a code to enter which was supposed to disable or erase the unknown admin password and allow me to change the boot options to include the usb port.
The code does not work. The dell rep mentioned something about hitting the Shift and Control keys while I hit the enter key but that still doesn't... Read more

I received a vga/usb device today, was trying to hook up 2 monitors. I plug in the usb device and it loads it's software on the computer and says it needs to restart. I restart and now it says it cannot boot properly and needs to reset to an earlier time. I click reset and it goes to the dell logo with the spinning circle. It's been like this for over an hour. I'm not sure if it's stuck or actually still restoring, my guess it it's stuck since my previous restores have never taken this long. I ran a diagnostics test and everything checks out so it's definitely software related, it won't even boot up in safe mode. Kind of stuck on what to do next. Any information would really help me out, thanks!

I want to switch between 2 laptops onto a DELL E178FPc Monitor (which is VGA input only).  The Laptops are a DELL E6410 -VGA out only, running Win7    and  a DELL Inspiron 5000 series machine -HDMI output, running Win10.
I have tried to achieve this using a KVM switch (the ATEN CS22U, non-powered). It claims to be Win7 compliant.
When I connect it to the E6410's VGA port and then in to the Monitor it says 'no signal detected'. Subsequent research would suggest that even if I were to somehow get a display through the KVM switch it will be lost as soon as you switch to the other laptop (!). 
I have come to believe through research on the web that the E6410 Laptop will only work with a VGA monitor being directly connected to its port, or an alternative (powered) KVM Switch with so called Active-DDC (whatever that is!) may also work. 
Needless to say I have exhausted my tech knowledge on this one.
Can anyone offer further advice or recommend a solution?
Ed.
