Q: Dell Inspiration One 2020

I have a Dell Inspiration One 2020 Desktop. It was working fine and the touch screen, keyboard and mouse all stopped working. I put new batteries in my mouse and keyboard both but that didn't help. It's like my screen is frozen. It comes on but I can't get anything to work. I brought another mouse from another computer and it didn't work either.
Do you think I need to buy another mouse & keyboard but why won't the touch screen work either?

Preferred Solution: Dell Inspiration One 2020

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.)


Dell Desktop Inspiration 560 Will not start up.  I put in new DVD drive because other did not work anymore.  Computer would freeze  when it got to the desktop.  I unplugged the computer,  pulled battery out,  and set the cmos pin to 2-3  to reset.  Then I put the jumper back I thought I put it back to the 1-2 run position, got distracted and,  put it into the 2-3 instead.  I put back in the battery and plunged it in and got 5 beep code error.  Realizing what I did I turned off the computer.  Set it properly, and it would not start up.  I checked the power supply and it showed faulty.  I put a new psu in and they only thing I get is the fans on and no beep.  What can I do if anything?  

A:Dell Desktop Inspiration 560 Well not start up.

hi there!
well this is my little weird and frustrating problem.
when ever i'm using wi-fi the web-browser (Chrome and Firefox) gets stuck every 5-10 minutes and after 20-30 seconds it's starting to work again. it happened in all kind of places with wi-fi. And nobody else complain about this problems - so it's not a Internet infrastructure problem. Also the driver of the wi-fi adapter and it's up to date. 
any other ideas what could be the problem?
Thanks! :-)

A:web-browsers keep getting stuck on my dell inspiration 3520

Wikipedia: WiFi > InterferenceInterferenceFor more details on this topic, see Electromagnetic interference at 2.4 GHz.Wi-Fi connections can be disrupted or the internet speed lowered by having other devices in the same area. Many 2.4 GHz 802.11b and 802.11g access-points default to the same channel on initial startup, contributing to congestion on certain channels. Wi-Fi pollution, or an excessive number of access points in the area, especially on the neighboring channel, can prevent access and interfere with other devices' use of other access points, caused by overlapping channels in the 802.11g/b spectrum, as well as with decreased signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) between access points. This can become a problem in high-density areas, such as large apartment complexes or office buildings with many Wi-Fi access points.Additionally, other devices use the 2.4 GHz band: microwave ovens, ISM band devices, security cameras, ZigBee devices, Bluetooth devices, video senders, cordless phones, baby monitors, and (in some countries) Amateur radio all of which can cause significant additional interference. It is also an issue when municipalities or other large entities (such as universities) seek to provide large area coverage.Even bad electrical connections can cause broad RF spectrum emissions.

So I received my Dell laptop today and I'm a little confused how graphics cards work as this is my first laptop. It's currently using Intel HD graphics 620 though it should have a Radeon R7 M445 4GB card. Do I need to manually switch it or something? Please help cause I can't game without it :(

A:Dell Inspiration 15 5000 Graphics card help

Hi GreenTheAssassin,Thanks for posting.It does that automatically, there is no need to switch things. The AMD kicks in when you do 3D graphics, like games, CAD, etc. When you are using Word / looking at your icons, it defers down to the onboard graphics card. There is no way to use AMD all the time.

Hello, recently I have been having problems with my Dell Inspiration 5559 Windows 10 laptop, I seem to be having problems with a blue screen of death every time I boot up, displaying the message "Kernel Security Check Failure" I have looked into the event viewer and the error message is: "The system has rebooted without cleanly shutting down first.

MY question is is it possible to relpace a normal display to a touch srceen display? (or do i already have one or i just dont know....) please help asap i really need to know ;)

A:Dell Inspiration 3521 touch screen questions

The system doesn't appear to be a touchscreen -- and while anything is generally possible given enough funds, it's not going to be cost-effective to upgrade the system to a touch screen.  Basically the entire top half of the system has to be replaced - along with the internal video cable.  This is over $250 in parts alone - probably more than half what the system cost initially.

Hi! Can someone help with me with a my Dell Inspiration 15 3000 Series? I have no idea what happened to it. It was Tuesday, I had just gotten home from a long trip, I went to plug in my iPhone to back it up on iTunes, it was fine, then I got tired and I took a nap and woke up to it saying:  
You re PC needs to be repaired.
The boot configuration data is missing some required information.  
File: \BCD
Error code: 0xc000000d
You ll need to use the recovery tools on your installation media. If you don not have any installation media(like a disk or USB device), contact your system administrator or PC manufacturer.  
It was completely fine before then! The only problem was that my kitten was playing during the trip and accidentally made it fall and when it landed to charger got bent a little. That was it though. I bent it back into place, plugged it in and it worked fine after that. Seriously it only acted up when I was asleep at home hours after that incident so I had no clue how it happened.
I saw a possible way to fix it in this video: https://youtu.be/81iXN-ENb8sI've used my moms laptop to download windows 8.1 into a USB if that helps any.

my dell 2020 has been having problems starting up, this time it won't start at all. I have tried all options (restore, start up repair, load windows keep files) but all have failed. I guess I will need to try a fresh install. It originally came with 7 and free upgraded to 10. So where do I start, do I need to try and find a copy of 10? Thanks for any advice. Michael

A:Dell 2020 recovery

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.

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

I really appreciate the good design of Dell Inspiration 7353 laptop, it's good, mostly indeed.
Recently I have a problem to use legacy boot (USB, DVD/CD, Internal HD, whatever), after I have upgraded the BIOS to the latest one (Inspiron_3153_3158_7353_7359_7568_1.13.0). Due to legacy boot is required in my daily work, so I will ask for help, see if anyone can give me a solution.
When I used the laptop without any BIOS upgrade, it can boot from any legacy driver (USB, etc) with Windows 7, 8+ etc. 
Then it had a small USB issue, I thought I should try to upgrade BIOS, see if this can help, then soon I started to regret, because I had found that all legacy boot is failed, the Windows 8.1 throw me into a BSOD, tell me PAGE FAULT error. I have tried USB, internal HD & DVD, all same.
Then I googled, saw someone had similar problem (not same), he cleared CMOS by pull out the battery, so I tried it without any hope, but surprisingly, when I pull out the battery and remove the connection of power adapter and laptop battery, by pressing the power button several time with & without power cord connected, then I installed the CMOS battery, laptop battery, restart the laptop.
When I press F12 to load the boot menu, it really can load legacy bootable device, but that's one time thing. After the system reboot, the problem back again, looks like if I want to boot into legacy bootable device, I will have to remove CMOS battery each time like above all...sad.

Hi! I'm new here and I need some help! Yesterday I bought a manufacturer refurbished Dell Inspiration  14 (5447) and I found 2 small problems so far.
The first one: The laptop magically turns off. I mean it looks like it turns off but actually goes into sleep mode/standby when I try to move it somewhere. For example: If I put the laptop on my lap - the screen goes black. Now I can't do anything but to press the power button so I can turn the laptop back on. But wait! I have to stay still and not move the laptop in order to do so. No matter where I put the laptop. It goes into sleep/standby mode. Even I hold it in the air and move a little - BAM! Yesterday was ok but today the laptop started to turn off more often.

The second problem: This morning I noticed that when I turn the laptop on a message appears saying: "Checking media: Fail" or something like that then the laptop restarts. It does that 2-3 times before the laptop finally boots. It never happend before! 

Any sollutions ? Advice? Thank you so much! The laptops looks like is in warranty until 2018.

A:Dell Inspiration 14 (5447) - randomly turns off/standy/sleep mode when I move the laptop. Need help please!

What is the current OS installed on the system?
Disable the sleep mode and check if the system goes to sleep when moved - Control Panel -> Power Options -> choose action for closing the lid - set it to do nothing. Then move the system and check if the display goes blank.
Keep the system on a flat surface and connect an external monitor. Swivel the LCD back and forth and check if the display goes blank on both internal LCD and the external monitor. 
Restart the system and press f12 key on startup - choose diagnostics. Let it run the diags and if you encounter any errors - make a note of the complete error and report the same to us.

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.

A:Dell Inspiron One 2020 Motherboard Replacement

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.

My beloved laptop was working fine when it suddenly started bleeping, screen went black and the fan was very audible. (I was not listening to Justin Bieber at the time, so that's not it ;)).Now it won't start at all- when I press the start button, nothing happens, there are only a reddish flickering light and vague flickering light- the two right lights at the edge of the keyboard. That also happens when I connect the charger. 

A:Inspiration 15-352 crash :(

Unplug the system and remove or disconnect the battery.  Hold the power button for 30 seconds and remove and reinstall the memory modules.
Verify that the LED on the AC adapter or the DC plug is ON before you plug in the notebook end.   If it's not, replace the adapter with a new one.
Try powering up on AC only.  If you can, but can't with the battery installed/connected, the battery is faulty and will need to be replaced.  
If you still can't get the system to power up, the mainboard is bad and will need to be replaced.

I just bought another air 540 case


as I find them very good for airflow, and from a looks point of view the split case is lovely as it hides the gubbins I dont want on view. Mobo is a sabertooth X99, which has a nice and clean black look to it.
I have done 2 of these cases before, 1 in green with some nice lighting, and a similar in red (for the parents- it went down well!).

As far as painting goes, I have done a lot of cases and gotten fairly good, on spray and detail, so not frightened of a challenge. For part modding/ making, I 3D print a lot of items (have some very nice LED holders made up) so a lot of scope there.

Trouble is, I cant really find anything that makes me think "Thats what I want it to look like".
So.. looking for inspiration! I am thinking of a theme along the lines of Diablo, maybe battlefield series, or comic book- the only one I really like is Judge Dredd, so possibly something there. Colorwise, given the case is white, pretty much anything is ago, but from my model painting (25mm, fantasy/ futuristic) I have a liking for black/silver/dark red.

any ideas throw them out- once I get something I like, its a goer

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...
So I guess my questions are:
-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...
-I want to uninstall MSSE and reinstall it. How can I do that? I've tried taking a copy off a working machine and running setup.exe but the error of already having anti malware installed hangs it up...

I am trying to help a person that isn't very computer literate. She has the 2020 search toolbar on her machine and her parasite software is detecting it as a trojan but won't clean it. Is there an online scan or tool that will clean this trojan?

Download CWShredder:
Run and hit the ->fix tab to fix all found problems

CWShredder takes advantage of security holes in windows so you should install all critical as well as hotfixes available from windows update.
Then repost a fresh Hijack this log .

Download 'Hijack This!' http://www.spychecker.com/program/hijackthis.html and save it to a folder on your desktop.
Unzip, doubleclick HijackThis.exe, and hit "Scan".

When the scan is finished, the "Scan" button will change into a "Save Log" button.
Press that, save the log, load it in Notepad, and copy its contents here. Most of what it lists will be harmless or even essential, don't fix anything yet.

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.

I understood MS would release a final update in June 2020 before going end-of-support in jan 2020.
But, almost August and no update in sight, according to https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/advanced-threat-analytics/ata-versions
So, when can we expect this update (if at all)?

I'm very happy with Windows 7 and don't want to DOWNGRADE to Windows 10. My only concern is when support ends in January 2020. Is there any way Windows 7 can continue to be used safely after that date?

A:I want to stick with W7 - 2020 workaround?

In my opinion no body really knows what will happen in or after 2020 with Windows 7.

Hopefully by then Microsoft will have another operating system we want to buy.
