Question about Dell Inspiron 1501 Notebook

1 Answer

I want it

Thought this was a ad. I really do like the looks of this laptop and was wondering if it is as capable as my dell windows xp, sp3 (that is 10 yrs old)? I need a replacement computer. I'm not really technically savvy, would appreciate if someone would be good enough to educate me as to the best system out there for around 600/700.
thanks,
frank

I have kept a problem,my laptop FUjitsu Simens Amilo D7850 doesn't get boot and BIOS yet.


You were running Windows XP SP3 and you want to upgrade to Windows 7. Windows 7 and Windows XP are technically very different and apparently your Amilo is not capable of running Windows 7. It requires more RAM, more disk space and also more powerful hardware. You should visit the Fujitsu website to find out if your computer can run Vista and Windows 7. Personally I doubt that.

Forgot password to log on to windows xp professional on dell latitude d420


there's not much you can do about it but here's ways to remember

1) use the forgot password Icon

2) you can try to load a Linux on then get all your files out of the HDD then reinstall windows XP.


if you really cant remember your password then do number 2 and for a Linux I would use Zorin OS works just like windows 7 but with Linux capability's.

I HAVE A 6 YEAR OLD DELL WITH SP 2. IS THAT THE LATEST UPGRADE?


Hi,

The latest service pake for XP is SP3, you can download and install it by performing a Microsoft Update by clicking on the the start menu and above where it says "All Programs" look for Windows/Microsoft Update.

Once SP3 is installed i recommend you perform another MS update to update SP3.

Installed a rangeplus adapter on dell 1000 inspiron xp sp3 home


See if you can go into safe mode by hitting the F8 key right after the dell splash screen and right before the XP splash screen comes up. If you can get into safe mode try to uninstall the rangeplus adapter and try reinstalling again after rebooting the system normally.

Hi, I bought an Inspiron E1405 Media Center Edition in '06 and it never really worked properly. I was never able to use the "media direct" button or any of the other feats. I thought came with? On top of...


Since XP was reinstalled and the HDD was not prepped with the Media Direct CD before XP install Media direct will not work. You can purchase a Dell Media Center CD on ebay for about $20
http://shop.ebay.com/?_from=R40&_trksid=p3907.m38.l1313&_nkw=Dell+XP+Media+Center+Edition&_sacat=See-All-Categories
I also found a Media Direct CD for a Newer Model, so I'm not sure it would work on yours. Media Direct requires that the HDD be formatted with Media Direct and then the XP installation, Driveras and applications, then install of Media Direct SW. Once done in that manner, you should be able to boot to Media Direct to play a DVD (To be honest, I never found the Media Direct function that useful)

Dell Resource CD - not working in Windows XP SP3 version


You are using the Dell Resource CD provided by the manufacturer. This CD may not work with new versions of Internet Explorer that come with SP3 installations (if you reinstalled from a Windows XP CD not provided by Dell or if you did the Microsoft SP3 update).
You're only solution would be to use your "Service Tag" number underneath, for laptops (or on the back/side for Desktops), of your computer and go to http://support.dell.com to download the drivers for your specific system. If this computer doesn't have the drivers for you to be able to go to the internet, use a second computer and go to the site. Then download the individual drivers listed (the latest dated drivers will work best).
Once you've downloaded mainly the Video, Network, Audio drivers, use a USB Flash drive (sometimes called USB Key, USB pen drive, USB drive, etc) and copy what's been downloaded onto it. Do not double click on the files while they're on the second computer.
Once on the machine with Windows XP SP3, double click on each downloaded file (1 at a time) and follow the on-screen insctructions to install the driver. You should be fine afterwards. :) Let us know how it goes, and rate us. :)

Toshiba Laptop A55-S306 shuts down with error messages


It sounds to me like a virus. Boot up from a recover cd or windows cd and reinstall freashly.

If you don't have a recovery cd, contact Toshiba for one. They go around for $40 to $50. If you can't get one, buy Windows Vista and boot up from that and reinstall.
