    So; I have a Dell Inspiron 7720 laptop with a reformatted hard drive and I need to reinstall windows 7. I do not have the original Reinstallation DVD that came with this exact laptop but I do have one from another Dell Laptop ( a Studio 1558) and another Windows 7 disc from a desktop (the discs and the OS that was on the laptop before the HDD fail are all Windows 7 Home Premium 64Bit). When I turn on the laptop with either disc and mash F12 and then select "CD/DVD/CD-RW Drive" from the boot options the screen immediately displays "Operation System not found" and stays at this screen until restarted.

    I have run a full diagnostic check and everything passed, I have made sure the CD-RW Drive is no.1 in boot priority (don't imagine that matters if I  manually select it). The HDD and CD-RW Drive are detectable in BIOS too.... I have no idea what the problem is, any help will be greatly appreciated!!

    Many thanks in advance,

    I was recently having problems with downloading a simple music software which i had before when i went to download it, it wouldn't download. recently i just tried to download league of legends ( a game ) its a safe game, but everytime i go to download it appears on the bottom then when i go to click on it, it doesnt appear and just ends up dissapearing and then a red lock icon and i read up on the red lock icon and it apparently means Google Chrome knows there are problems with the site's certificate. Proceed with caution, because someone on your network (like someone sharing your wi-fi connection) might be messing with the website. If you disclose any information on the website, the person on the network might be able to read it. but no other person is controlling with it, not that i know of.

    Their computer is a Dell Dimension 1100 that was running Windows XP. I formatted and booted from win7 install dvd disk to install. The system was running ok on win7 but was donated to me and wiped. Both drives set as master: hd primary master, dvd secondary master. 2gb ram. 

    ere's the problem. On the Dell Dimension 1100 it took 24 hours to install win 7 after format. To boot all the way up takes 1 hour. Typing each character takes 5-10 mins. etcetera

    How do i fix this?  Only a driver disk came with used pc given to me from my church as they were trashing it.

    Thank you,

    I may be posting in the wrong section, so I apologize ahead of time.  

    I purchased an Alienware Alpha Base steam machine that has linux on it.  I've messed around with it and come to the conclusion that I don't like the Steam OS and want to just simply make the entire thing a Windows machine.  Period.  No dual booting, not external hard drive, just convert from linux to Windows 8.1 witch is the version I have available.  

    I have 8.1 on a thumb drive, and am just looking for someone to point me to direction on how to do so.  Could it be just as simple as booting into the bios and telling the machine to boot from the USB and all is done?  

    Anyhow, thank you in advance for any help.  Much appreciated.

  • 08/17/16--12:12: In serious trouble
  • Ok so this is what happened from the start , a normal day talking to my friend on skype then he told me come over with your laptop , so I pack my laptop go to his house and try and connect to the wifi, I saw that there was no wifi around , even tho my phone is connected to it, so I get my friends brother, he is a computer engineer , he opened device manger and he found no files for the network drivers nor the audio , so we said easy solution just download the drivers again , they wouldn't install as if my laptop was refusing any thing to enter it, so now we know I have a virus, so my friends brother told me if I have the cd for recovery ( the one that comes with the laptop which I lost ) he could recover my laptop but sadly I lost it so is there anyway Dell can send me a cd version to my email? If not what other solutions do I have ??? Please help

  • 08/20/16--20:02: Product key
  • I have my Dell Windows 8 computer since 2014. About 3 months ago it started asking for the product key that's on the box that the dvd came in. I no longer have that box. How can I get a new product key?

    I bought a lightly used Dell XPS 8900 computer. The original owner did not reset the computer. It is erratic. I tried to create a system disk but got an error message. Apparently that's not an option.  I don't know if this system is encrypted or what the problem is. I''ve tried to remove the games the previous owner installed but get an error message with that and cannot uninstall them. Even though I've spent 2 days installing the software I use, I want to reinstall Windows 7 Pro & start over. Can I download the OS from Dell?

    I have been reading a lot about problem with the PXE Boot Driver for OptiPlex 5040, I have spent the last 2 days trying to get this working and not been able to.

    I am using WDS to deploy my images. I know its a driver issues. I have managed to get the computer to half boot passing the driver error message in MDT but when I apply the network drivers to the WDS WinPE I have I am still unable to get this to boot it errors up about the network connection.

    I know the drive that MDT loads is --> PCI/VEN_8086&DEV_15B8&SUBSYS_06BA1028. I know the windows driver is Intel(R) Ethernet Connection (2) I219-V.

    I have tried the WinPE boot drivers and direct from Intel. I have download 5 different versions of the this drive and tried x86 and x64 and still not able to get the WinPE to boot.

    Has anyone else had this problem and managed to fix it?

    I am deploying a custom Windows 7 image.

    Thank you.

  • 08/23/16--13:51: Uninstall Windows 10
  • I tried W10 and particularly hated "Edge", especially as you cannot remove it as the preferred software to open certain things. So I uninstalled it.

    The uninstallation coincided with the beginning of error messages from Avira, although it seems to be running OK. Also, I VERY rarely use EBay, but the website is now slow to load and most of the time, locks-up. I use the website so rarely that I can't say that it coincided with the uninstall, but..........

    Anyone else have problems after uninstall?

    I have just gotten my 3415W screen and so far its quite itneresting experience. Few issues I have are:

    I have 5 screens + 3415W.

    When I drag a window to the edge of screen A (that is not 3415W) I can no longer maximize half size of the window. In the past if I dragged it to edge of screen the window would just take 50% of screen. If I drag it to top it goes 100% etc etc. DDM seem to be dissabling that critical windows feature.

    Can we pelase get it back ?

    Ignore below found out the custom button!

    Further more the spacing of pre-made layouts do not really work for me. Is there a way to specify custom layouts and their sizes? 

    Also when I click>drag window. There is a 0.5 second lag. Can we get rid of that lag please? Have the dell position drop down overlay drop in a separate process so it don't affect our windows experience?

    Another issue I have is that not all window are detected. If I start Maya and open hypershade its a separate window from main window. It would be great if DDM can recognise those windows. Or if I can manually add them in...

    Hopefully some of the things above could be addressed and corrected? Its a nice DDM application but bit counter productive at the moment! Please tweak it :- )

    Purchased OptiPlex 3040 with Windows 7 Factory downgrade install.  Now want to install Windows 10 from the Dell supplied OEM DVD.

    Have followed these instructions

    and these

    but neither of them work.

    After changing the BIOS settings & re-booting I get a Dell SupportAssist screen with a white cross inside a red circle and the only option is a shutdown button.

    Anyone else experienced this and have a solution ?

  • 08/25/16--02:00: Dell Wyse E02
  • Hi

    We're looking for new drivers to test our Wyse E02 classrooms with Multipoint server 2016. Unfortunately the driver package for Multipoint server 2012 doesn't works. We cannot find the clients. When will the driver update be available?
