What does it say in the device manager? If you see a yellow question mark by a device you will need to load the driver for that device. You can point the driver update utility to the Restore CD for the PC.

Dell xps will not boot ubcd


The cd-rom in the M1730 might not like the type/brand of disc you are using. An alternative would be to remove the HDD from the laptop and either put it in an external enclosure or get an adapter kit and hook it into another computer all together to recover your data. You can also try to make a bootable USB drive in order to boot the computer.

Dell XPS 1530 will not start up black screen. Tried holding down the Fn, F8 & on buttons, but still wont start


Hi David,

The fact you have no screen to get into the BIOS menu, indicates a big problem, and the culprit is the car power adapter.

Never, ever, use anything but the recommended adapter to power your unit, else disaster, followed by an agonising death for your PC/Laptop.

Your cars amperage is not compatible with your units amperage, unless you are using recommended DELL adapter for the car.

I hope you have not pickled your unit, but if so, you'll know better next time.

Cheers,
Peter

How do i bypass the factory sprint wireless connector and set up a wireless connection through windows


Power on the laptop computer and wait for the operating system to boot before proceeding.


Right-click the wireless icon in the lower right corner of the desktop.

From the pop-up menu select "Enable."



This activates the wireless Internet options but it does not turn on the wireless receiver.

Push down on the wireless button or wireless switch on the top of the keyboard.



After a moments time the switch or button lights up, signifying the computer is ready for an Internet connection.



Right-click the wireless icon again.

From the pull-up menu choose to view all available wireless networks in the area.



A window appears with all the networks your computer receives some sort of signal from.


Select the wireless network you want access to, type in the password (if required) and click "Connect." Momentarily the laptop computer connects to the Internet.




you should be able to, it depends on the laptop, the os, the wireless adapter, and the settings .


click start Control Panel - Network Connections - right click on 'Wireless connection'

(or similar) and click 'enable'.


right click on the network in the bottom toolbar select open network sharing center

you should have the options to either connect or disconnect or set up a network connection


this will vary depending on your operating system


hope this helps

I have a Dell studio XPS 16 and there is a random clicking noise at certain times


you may want totry to note the source of the noise to pinpoint the possible cause. note if it is fron the hard drive, speakers or the fan. once you have found the source, you may then get warranty replacement if still active for the part generating it. other things to try would be to update bios and hard drive firnware if applicable which can be downloaded through the dell support site. you can also run the Dell diagnostics tool for abnormal noise to try to verify the source of the noise. hope this helps

My Studio XPS laptop does not stay powered without being plugged in. Replaced the power adapter in case it was not allowing the battery to charge. Ran dianostics on the battery and no problems with it. ...


Yes. If the battery is still ok and the ac adapter had been replaced, then it could already be a problem with the motherboard.
You may try to flash the BIOS of the motherboard first, here's the link:

http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/driverslist.aspx?c=us&cs=19&l=en&s=dhs&ServiceTag=&SystemID=STUDIOXPS13&os=WLH&osl=en&catid=&impid=

Select your operating system and download the driver under BIOS, saved on your computer and run it.

If that does not fix the problem, call Dell to have them check the motherboard.
