Basically - make sure you get a valid copy of the best OS that it meets the requirements of.

Software is a waste of $$, because it is only of use to the person using it. If they never use it - they have wasted their $$.

Make sure it is up to date - and bench test it with benchmarking software to be sure your repairs hold.

How can i upgrade to windows 7 for free?


You can not upgrade to Windows 7 for free legally.

At this time, Microsoft no longer even sells windows 7. Some dealers may still have it in stock, but it's no longer for sale.

Firmware upgrade


NEVER EVER UPGRADE UR FIRMWARE OF ANY HARDWARE(MP3, SOUNDCARD, BIOS, MOBILE, DVD PLAYER, ETC)
UR HARDWARES DO NOT REQUIRE ANY UPGRADE OF FIRMWARE
THEY ARE MENT TO WORK THE WAY THEY WERE MFG
MOST OF THE MFGS DONT RECOMEND ANY FIRMWARE UPGRADE UNLESS THERE IS A LARGE CHANGE IN THE FUNCTION OF THE HARDWARE AFTER U BOUGHT THE HARDWARE AND IF IT IS COMPATIBLE FOR THE CHANGE.

SO NEVER EVER UPGRADE FIRMWARES OF UR HARDWARES.

IF U DO, IT WILL BE AT YOUR OWN RISK AND YOU MAY DAMAGE THE EQUIPMENT / TOTALLY LOSE THE HARDWARE FUNCTIONS.

Run diagnostics on the system, will determine if that is a hardware issue or something related to drivers.
For drivers - obvious first choice is to download the latest drivers from support.dell.com and upgrade
For hardware - you will need the LCD to be replaced, for the lack of other smaller parts you can't order from Dell.
Before you determine hardware, go thru the system teardown documentation and reseat all the LCD parts / cables (usually fixes the line issue, without replacement)

Im always having this BSOD "BLUE SCREEN OF DEATH' EVERYTIME i open it BSOD always appears.. and everytime it appears i do the" repair(recomended)" then it turns on.. and when i...


Hi Faith,

BSOD's can be caused by ....well, lots of things...Drivers, hardware incompatibility, operating system, etc. Also diagnosing the cause would require above average knowledge.

I would suggest upgrading all your hardware drivers to latest releases. If not fixed, a clean re-install of Windows should fix it. (remember to back up your data)

Dell Vostro 3500 suddenly shut down, start up and works fine, after 2 minutes turn off without any warning message this happened after i installed bios upgrade A10 from dell.com


this is happening because of bios upgrade but not in a bad way. May be there is a hardware problem just starting so new bios upgrade is detecting that and thats why its restarting.

basically sudden shut down occurs in either cases- Fan not working or hard disk(or RAM) gone bad.

my advise is to contact dell customer support and they will guide you thru trouble shooting steps.
they will guide you if your warranty is not there.

WHEN I START UP MY COMPUTER IT TAKES 3 TO 5 MINUTES TO GET ON LINE HOW CAN I SHORTEN THE TIME?


This usually happens if your computer have a lot of programs to load during startup. Another issue is your hardware that might need to upgrade.


I can assist you in checking out the software part. Hardware upgrade like adding RAM is of course very optional.

If you are using Windows, try to follow these:
  1. Click on Start => Run. ( Or press and hold the "windows logo" key and press "R" (letter r)
  2. Run dialog box open and type in "msconfig" (without quotes) and then click OK button.
  3. 0394930.jpg
  4. Then System Configuration Utility dialog box loads and appears.
  5. There are many "tabs" in the window. Click on the "Startup" tab to display which programs load when Windows loads. Simply uncheck those many programs that don't need to open or run when windows loads in order for windows to load faster. There is no problem with this since you can open or run those programs when you need to use them.

Software upgrade 2.0 for ipod touch


Hey Dennis A,

According to information provided by the manufacturer, the "software upgrades" that are included with specific 16GB iPod Touch models are part of Apple's January software upgrade. The upgrade provides e-mail functionality, access to Google maps, weather forecasts, stock market tracking and a notepad program for the iPod Touch.

Apart from this slight change in pre-installed software, there should not be any other difference between the two 16GB iPod Touch models available through your local Best Buy™ store - they have identical hardware specifications.

Please keep in mind that a product's model number may change slightly whenever a minor cosmetic or major software update occurs. In this particular case, the model number MA627LL/A was superseded with model number MA627LL/B to reflect the changes in the factory-installed programs. Both models are considered to be the same generation of hardware.

If you would like more information about this software upgrade, I would strongly suggest checking out the following link:

http://www.apple.com/pr/library/2008/01/15touch.html

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron
Go Ahead. Use Us.

sadly, most repair shops are getting away from component level repair and want to do module replacement which would be between 4 and 6 hundred. I can give you a link to a site that I am part owner of as well as a support tech. We sell service manuals and provide free tech support as well as sell replacement parts.. If you can solder I would recomend that route as putting alot of money into a new module. If you would like to try to repair it with free tech support just look on the rear of your set for the Chassis number and go to the following link,
http://servicemanuals.vstore.ca/
let me know if I can help you further.
