Question about Dell Inspiron E1505 Notebook

Open Question

I have a Dell laptop with Win XP. I have Quicken 6 (circa 1996) installed. When I installed Quicken 2010 I thought it would update my old files. While the new program did uninstall Quicken 6 it did not update my old files to the new program. How do I get my old Quicken 6 files updated to Quicken 2010? Also, when I try to backup files in Quicken 6 it prompts me to enter a backup directory. No matter what I type in it tells me to enter a "valid file name". I have tried every combination I can think of and can't seem to get a correct name. So I can not get current backup of the Quicken 6 files. What do you suggest?

SOURCE: Update BIOS E1505/6400 fails

The link below will take you to Dell's support download site for the e1505 BIOS download.

http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/download.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=gen&releaseid=R158849&SystemID=INSPIRONI6400/E1505&servicetag=&os=WW1&osl=en&deviceid=10430&devlib=0&typecnt=0&vercnt=9&catid=-1&impid=-1&formatcnt=1&libid=1&fileid=212350

It is version A17. Download the file to your desktop and then double click on it to run it. A window will ask if you wish to upgrade the BIOS. Click yes. The system will shutdown, the BIOS will be flashed and Windows will restart.

The error that you mention above indicates that the file did not download properly for you before.

Good luck, and please let me know how this works out for you.

Tip

Quicken will not print more than seven checks.


You may run into this problem if you use the 2005 or 2006 version of Quicken’s personal finance software (such as Quicken Basic, Deluxe, Premier, Premier Home & Business). If you try to print eight or more checks at once, they won’t print.

According to Quicken Help & Support, Intuit fixed this problem for both the 2005 and 2006 versions of Quicken. You’ll need to download and install the latest patch, which includes the fix for this problem. Quicken offers manual and One Step Update methods to update your version of Quicken with the latest patch. You’ll need an Internet connection to download the patch. If you have a dialup connection, connect to the Internet before you start any of the update methods below. Once you complete the patch installation, Quicken will be able to print eight or more checks.

To read Quicken’s solution for this problem, visit www.quicken.com, click Help & Support, and then select 2006 For Windows (make sure Quicken For Windows and Quicken 2006 appear in the Product fields). Next, type 2997 into the Search field and click Search.

Update Quicken 2005 manually
Visit Quicken Help & Support, select 2005 for Windows, and enter 3810 in the search field. Open the How Do I Manually Update Quicken 2005 For Windows To The Latest Release? link. This page has all of the patches for Quicken 2005. However, you only need to download the patch that has the highest R number. The latest patch carries all of the data from the earlier patches. In this case, you will want to download patch QW05R5PATCH.exe.

Click the file’s link. If you have Windows XP, a File Download – Security Warning may appear. Click the Save button. In the Save As window, choose a location to which you’d like to save the file and then click Save. When the download completes, simply double-click the file to start the patch installation.

(NOTE: This method involves downloading and installing a single patch file. If you don’t have an Internet connection but have a friend who does, you can download the file to his PC and then burn it to a CD [assuming your friend’s PC has a CD-RW]. Use the CD to transfer the file to your computer.)

Update Quicken 2006 manually
Visit Quicken Help & Support, select 2006 for Windows, and then enter 3796 in the search field. Open the How Do I Manually Update Quicken 2006 For Windows To The Latest Release? This page has all of the patches for Quicken 2006. However, you only need to download the patch that has the highest R number. The latest patch is QW06R3PATCH.exe and carries all of the data from the earlier patches.

Click the file’s link. If you have Windows XP, a File Download – Security Warning may appear. Click the Save button. In the Save As window, choose a location to which you’d like to save the file and then click Save. When the download completes, simply double-click the file to start the patch installation.

Update Quicken 2005 Or 2006 With One Step Update
You can also update your version of Quicken using One Step Update. You can start the update by clicking Online Menu and then selecting One Step Update. Next, uncheck any checkboxes that appear and then click Update Now. The tool will download and install the latest update for you.

HELLO!PLAESE HELP ME.I HAVE dell vostro 1015 windows vista but i want to convert it into xp,the problem is whenever i try to install windows xp a blu screen appears saying that something about my bios


Are you using a full version retail or OEM copy of WIN XP to install? Or is it a recovery copy from another PC or laptop? You will need to use a full version disc to perform the retrofit. You will also need to download the WIN XP Drivers for your laptop from the Dell Site. You CANNOT "upgrade" install WIN XP over VISTA and keep your drivers, settings, files. Performing a WIN XP install will require a total wipe of your hard drive. Therefore you will have to save off all your personal files before you do this. Microsoft doesn't provide assistance for downgrade-type installations, so you must basically wipe your hard drive and then reload the OS.

How can i upgrade from Windows XP to WIndows 7?


Hey, just use Zinstall XP7. It can upgrade to Windows 7 and keep your programs and files and everything. No reason to stay on XP, I think - 7 is awesome

Always Back up your data/files you wish to continue too an alternative indepenant sorce.. Then start your "New" install.

Treat it as an Update Download, they give you the new prog and assimilate data already on the Poota?

I bought Quicken 99 (basic) when it came out. I installed and re-installed it succesfully up to Windows XP until this year. This past month the icon dissapeared from my desktop and this past week, when I...


You could search the WWW for that file ... I think your best course of action is to get a good back up - both on a hard drive and on a cd or dvd of your quicken file. Save your file under a second name also (see below). Get 2010 version, which they started advertising to Quicken users about 2 weeks ago for $78.00. Load the software then tell Quicken to load your file.

BE ADVISED - the copy of your file on your hard drive will be over written when it converts to the new Quicken. That is the reason you save as another name. The new copy will not run on your Quicken 99 - however, you still have 99, right? and you have the copy under another name to run on that, right?

So you should be in good shape either way.

I think your real 15 year record is that you used it for so long!

Tell me, did I just answer another Quicken question for you here?

Thanks

Hi Bruce,

Time for a new Quicken, my friend. and maybe a newer computer. I remember something about Quicking having trouble migrating to 32 bit computers.

Find a newer quicken on e-bay or at your computer store that also handles used software. Quicken sells the new version now at their site for $78.00

Make sure you have a good back up before youj start.

I hope this helps

Quicken 2009 premier Installation


a bit fuzzy here in your statements
you have win xp installed and the quicken program runs there perfectly
is that correct ?
now on another pc you have win vista and quicken is not running there
is that correct?
or do you have both win xp and vista operating systems on the one laptop and are trying to get quicken to work on both on the one laptop
maybe the problem is that quicken version you have works well win win xp as it is compatible with that OS but is not compatible with win vista in which case you need to go to the quicken properties tab , click on compatibility tab and tick the box and high light window vista and apply the change or get a download upgrade vesion from quicken web site
