U need to double confirm the phone line whether got dial tone or not. What u can do is to plug the phone line to a single line phone. If dial tone is available, u can able to make call.

Describe your Inspiron 530 Desktop Computer Problem i had win7 ultimate the power went out it says it cant repair itself i tried reinstalling vista but it wont repair it opens to the win vista install...


Hi k_d_nsyg ,
Install a replacement HD and see what it does when launching the Vista install disc .
if it works , you can probably still recover the data from the old HD with a recovery software such as :
http://download.cnet.com/Recuva/3000-2242_4-10753287.html
or http://www.tenorshare.com/data-recoveryr.html by placing the defective Hd in an external box connected to a healthy computer .
If you don't succeed to get your pc running , you need to bring your machine to a qualified repair office .
Best regards ,

Dell Inspiron 530 not recognizing HL-DT-ST-DVD+-RW GSA-H73N ATA. Downloaded latest driver. No luck. Code 10 error.


I'd try rolling back to the previous driver, maybe your machine isn't compatible with the latest driver ...

I have a Dell Inspiron 530 0X0000007E error code


That error message is usually coupled with removing an adapter connected to a RAID device. Have you disconnected anything in your computer recently? Have you opened it and cleaned it recently? If you've opened it to clean it, there's a chance that something may have come loose. If you know what you're doing on the inside of a computer, you can go through and make sure that everything is properly connected and then try booting again too see if that works.

Was able to get connected to the internet twice to day when i came back in to get on the computer it couldnt connect to the internet said no dial tone. this is a new dell computer with an external modem...


Generally this is an indication of a modem failure. If there have been any storms in your area, then the modem may have been zapped. The dial tone curcuit is normally the first casualty when a modem gets hit with more power than normal.

Provided that your telephone is functional on that line (Unplug modem, and connect a handset if this is a modem only line and see if the handset gets a dial tone, this is a good check to make sure the line is functional)

Dell Inspiron 530 randomly shuts down and restarts


Sounds like it could be a virus. Or, a heat buildup problem - are all fans inside machine working? Is the fan inside the power supply operating? Was there any work done inside the computer recently?
If the hdw is all ok, go out and buy yourself a copy of Norton Internet Security 2009 - 1 user lic - $49.99 @ Staples. Do *not* buy any earlier vers. of this software! Install, update it, run computer computer scan - probably will find/remove some/many viruses.

If this helps, please take the time to rate my response to you.
Thanks and good luck.

Windows Vista Home Premium will not let me open PNY Optima Pro Attache 4GB


the files from XP may or may not be readable on vista...and I can assure you vista files will not read on xp..

recommend you get two of those.

no guarantees of interchangeability from xp to vista(why am I not surprised?)
