After a fresh install you need to go through and reinstall all the drivers for each internal/external component. Then when you have installed the video driver you can right click your desktop to access your Display properties to change the settings. The link below is all the drivers you need. Hope this helped.

Location of bios chip on dell Inspiron 1764


The BIOS chip is soldered onto the motherboard. It is about a 1/2" square chip. The below link is the Dell Inspiron 1764 Service Manual from Dell for the Inspiron 1764. It is in PDF format (Adobe Reader online file, and downloadable).

http://downloads.dell.com/Manuals/all-products/esuprt_laptop/esuprt_inspiron_laptop/inspiron-1764_service%20manual_en-us.pdf

Opens in Adobe Reader so make sure you have the program already installed, or download and install Adobe Reader from www.adobe.com first.

Once the Service manual is opened. Go to the: System board section. Then scroll down to Replacing the Coin-Cell Battery Click on the link...That is the BIOS chip battery. The actual BIOS chip is not a removable chip on that particular motherboard, but a soldered in place chip located on the opposite side (surface of the motherboard) right near that coin-cell battery location. That chip may be reflashed w/ the latest BIOS by downloading the latest BIOS.bin file avail. from DELL at the following Drivers link.
http://www.dell.com/support/home/us/en/04/product-support/product/inspiron-1764/research
Choose Drivers and Downloads from the left>Choose the installed OS Version first>Then choose BIOS from the list. The following choices are there; (only 1 version of OS avail. without the actual Service Tag # appears; Win 7 (64 bit OS)).

Windows 7 64 Bit>Latest BIOS file version is A13 (Released 06 Apr 2011) If that matches your OS (Go to Start>Control Panel>System>General Tab and look for Windows 7 and 64 bit as the type of OS installed, you can also download Belarc Advisor from www.belarc.com and install and run it, allow the hardware and software inventory to load (print out the inventory) if possible, on the right near the top the System board info and currently installed BIOS info will show on the inventory along w/ everything else about that current laptop setup), if so, and Win 7 64 bit shows and the BIOS version is anything less than A13 (a smaller # like A6 or A11...then you need to update the BIOS to the A13 flash), is listed, go download from dell the A13 file, and install to flash the BIOS to the A13 latest BIOS version released. Then delete that downloaded file. You only need to flash it once.

Or go to:
www.dell.com Choose Support>Look on the bottom of the laptop for Service Tag: Number or Tag: and enter the # printed there usually a short combo of letters and #'s. Or you can have it scan for the tag # by installing the provided program. Then once you are at the Inspiron 1764 location>Enter your Operating System Version or flavor installed>Choose Drivers. In the Drivers section choose BIOS, and look for the highest BIOS Version Number and latest file date created.

IF THE MOTHERBOARD will not boot to the BIOS setup Screen (Motherboard BIOS is BRICKED or DOORSTOPPED=Corrupted BIOS, usually caused by incorrect flashing w/ the wrong file, or an inturrupted flashing...Though, sometimes just a dead motherboard BIOS coin-battery type battery replacement, and re-flashing with the latest file will cure the issue though).

And should a new preprogrammed BIOS chip be required to UNBRICK THE MOBO, for the Inspiron 1764. One can be purchased on ebay at the following link, but should only be installed by a VERY qualified technician. (Notice it says on their pic....New chip to be soldered on board). That takes skill to properly handle, desolder and resolder the chip properly. DELL and others can also reflash bricked BIOS CHIPS. Chips that were flashed incorrectly turning the motherboard into the dreaded doorstop.

But if the BIOS setup is reachable (the computer will start and boot to at least the BIOS Setup screen...Usually F2 or F10 or Delete keys. Just watch the screen on boot up, choose the BIOS Setup or Setup key combo listed). If so, (you can get to Setup, then the BIOS Chip is not bricked, corrupted, damaged, or doostopped), In that case, just go download the latest BIOS Version .bin file from the above Dell Drivers Link for your OS version, and go into Windows and double click the file w/ the power adapter plugged in and all other programs closed...follow the instructions, and do not interrupt the BIOS Flashing process (very IMPORTANT!) The computer will simply restart after the BIOS flashing is completed...You may have to go back to setup after it restarts and load default settings if it does not load Windows after the flash, then restart again.

I installed two new 1 gigabyte memory sticks into a Dell Inspiron 6000, which previously only had 2 256 megabyte memory sticks installed. When I first installed the 2 gigs of new memory, the laptop turned...


Once you installed the memory, did you enter into the System BIOS Setup screen? Do this and verify that the system recognizes the newly installed 2GB RAM. This should let the system access the new memory once you boot.

Video card freezing display & rebooting when full screen video used. Cannot use Media player full screen as well as any full screen video.


Hi,

Go into device manager and uninstall your video card, if it prompts to delete installed drivers put a tick in the box and click ok.

Now restart your laptop, the display drivers will be re-installed again, now go to Acer support and download the latest device drivers for your model.

If that doesn't sort it out, check for a bios update at Acer support.

If that doesn't sort it, you have a defective video board, if its intergrated onto the mainboard you will need a complete new mainboard, if its a dedicated video board you only have to get a new one.

Thanks

Laptop dispalys to monitor but laptop panel cannot be activate


Hi,

Thanks for all the details..

The issue seems to be with the video card drivers here...

Go to www.hp.com/suport and download the latest video card and the chipset drivers

before you download ...uninstall the nvidia chipset or any display software from program and features.

after you have installed the software.. go to the nvidia control panel > setup multiple monitors. and browse throughout the options >
It should be dual display and not extended display.

Also try with a new user profile...

Hope this helps..

SONY VAIO PCG-7G1M Wont boot


First you understand yourself is that after the windows logo screen apperars and its get restart means there is some changes or malfunction happened to your hardware - Although you changed your hard disk will not solve your problem. Please clarify as follows

1) did you load you operating system to this hard disk by any other computer help - if you load it with the same system try to reinstall the system.

If the problem existing 100% your motherboard is partially damage I think the uniprocessor side voltage variation is happening while you press keyboard some charge (voltage) you are supplying to the motherboard, sometimes some key pulse is more than 5 volt so that pulse support to get moved some points

First check your windows try to reinstall agian - I predict that you got this hard disk installed through some other laptop so the hardware configuration is different.

Thanks Hothawk

Problem with Inspiron 1525 doesn't go to full screen


conflict of interest between the origional video card built in and the new one there should be bios setting at bootup to disable on board video card
when you installed your drivers it probably saw both videos sets and tried to give them both drivers
you also need to update your codecs in your comp these are video and audio codes for updated players

Install a second VGA card on HP D530c


Are you upgrading from the basic video that is built into your computer's motherboard? If you are trying to boost your performance by installing an after-market video card, you may need to disable the built-in video by changing the settings in your computer's BIOS (Basic Input Output System). When your computer boots, it probably displays a message that says something similar to: Press F2 to enter "setup". This is how you get into the BIOS for your computer. You can page through the BIOS and see the different settings you can change. If you are unfamiliar with making BIOS changes, follow two rules: 1. Write down the original setting BEFORE you make any change. That way you can undo what you did if it causes a problem. 2. Only make ONE change at a time. It's too hard to troubleshoot a problem if you make several changes at once. Look for something that talks about Onboard video or built in video. Highlight that item and change it to "disabled" or "off". Save the changes to the BIOS before exiting. Then reboot your computer. The new video card should work now.
