SOURCE: full system restore without disk for dell

The Dimension 8250 was not equipped by Dell with an automated re-image process. If you want a clean installation of Windows, it will require a manual installation from the Dell Windows Media, followed by installing the drivers from either the resource CD or internat download. Once completed, then reinstall all applications.

SOURCE: IE 32-bit browser need to run on my 64-bit browser

The Internet Explorer shortcut in the Quick Launch toolbar and in the Start menu of Vista x64 will run the 32-bit version of Internet Explorer by default. Why run the 32-bit version if IE on the 64-bit version of Vista?
There are actually two shortcuts for Internet Explorer in the "All Programs" menu. Why two and what's the difference?
Here's the title of each and the exe's they run:
Internet Explorer
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe"
Internet Explorer (64-bit)
"C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe"
The first one runs IE from the "Program Files (x86)" folder, this is the 32-bit version. The second one is the 64-bit version.

SOURCE: I have a dell dimension 8250. I lost my sound, but

Either your soundcard driver has gotten corrupted or your soundcard has died. You can find both the driver & info on what card you have at www.dell.com. Click on the support link and you can either input your Dell Service Tag & get exact system info, or you can look it up using the system model #. The driver will be available for download. Try reinstalling an updated driver first. If that still doesn't work check your device manager to see if a soundcard is listed. If it is not then more than likely your card has died and will need to be replaced. Hope this helps.

I wish to upgrade my PC with windows 7


Depends on your Hardware.... if it is a slightly Older Computer then chances are it is a 32 Bit.... but if it is one to just a couple of years old... it COULD be a 64 Bit......
Regardless of if 32 or 54 Bit the Computer WILL run on 32 Bit Win 7.
and again regardless of 32 or 64 bit,.... 32 Bit Software SHOULD run on it without problems, but you may have to set it to "Compatibility Mode"
Good Luck

Dell dimension maximum cpu upgrade


http://www.cpu-upgrade.com/index.html

You will need to type motherboard name ID and the cpu ID


Significance


Upgrading to more modern operating systems depends on the type of processor in the computer.

One of the main differences between the two systems is that a 32-bit operation requires either a 32-bit or 64-bit processor, while a 64-bit version must have at least a 64-bit processor.


Identification


The operating system will register different on each computer that is running the platform. When a user clicks on the Start button, they can go to the Control Panel, followed by the System and Maintenance tab and click on System.

This will show whether the computer is running a 32-bit or 64-bit operating system


Hope this helps.

Is this a 32 bit or 64 bit system


Open the start menu, and right click on 'My Computer' or 'Computer' depending on the version of Windows you have. Click 'Properties'. A new window will open, displaying information about your system. Look near the top of the window. It will display your version of Windows, as well as if it is 32 or 64 bits.

I installed 4 Gig of RAM memory but only 3.25 shows up.\r\nis there a test I can run to see if the memory cards are working correctly? Thanks. Paul


It sounds like you are running a 32 bit operating system XP, Vista, or Windows 7 (32).
The 32 bit Operating Systems are only able to see and use about 3Gb of RAM. To use a greater amount you will need a 64 bit OS (either Windows XP/64 or Windows 7/64) or one of the open source 64 bit operating systems.

I would like to buy a new dell but not sure how much memory i would need. I don't recall how much memory is in my previous dell. It is a dell dimension xp. Would you please let me know how many GB there...


With any new computer you should get 4 GB of memory, the more the better. There are two version of Windows you can get 32 or 64 bit. The 32 bit version of Windows has a 4 GB maximum on the memory, the 64 bit versions go much higher depending on the version you get. 4 GB will give most people more than enough to do what they need. To see how much memory you currently have just Right-Click on the My Computer icon and select properties. In the window that comes up you will see the memory you currently have.

Are you sure your computer supports 64-bit processing? And if it does, try booting the Windows 7 disk and try to repair Windows following the steps. Hope it helps!

Vista 32 Bit verses 64 Bit


Before you jump in and upgrade make sure your computer system is 64 bit ready otherwise it wont work at all....upgrading memory is never a bad thing will actually speed up things from running and will have a better response time....windows 7 does not require 64 bit but it desired if possible....

Unsure of what type of PCI expansion slot in dimension 2400


8 and 16 bit PCI slots haven't been used in years so your slots would be 32 bit unless your PC is extremely old. That card will work fine.
