  • 09/15/16--04:55: Driver Updater Software
  •  Can anyone tell me if they know of a dependable Driver Update Program that will allow you to "Save" the downloaded driver-like to desktop-then install it yourself?

     I have tried several and they show they installed, but I know better! Intel and some others won't install until you agree to the Terms and Conditions of the risk concerns of getting the wrong software package!

     However, they say this or that needs updating and they say they are backing up the old Drivers. Then they say they are downloading the new Updates. Then they announce that the new Drivers are being installed, but the Intel Agreement is never shown for you to agree to.

     I have yet to find one that will allow you to save them, burn them to disk and install them yourself! I know that you can get a free Driver Backup Software from Microsoft, but unless you have new drivers installed, what would be the point? Just go to Dell and get a bunch of 2011 Drivers free, save them to Desktop and burn them to disk without the cost!

     Please advise me if you know of a Driver Update Program that will allow you to download and save them-then install them yourself!

    Hi guys,

    I just wondering is it good to remove those recovery partitions as indicated below ? (especially the 12.98GB one)

    I am not sure what's inside this partition but I am assuming it could be a recovery image for Windows 8, because my laptop was running Windows 8 since I bought it in November 2013 but then I transferred all the data from the original HDD that comes with the laptop into a new SSD in December 2015, and since that day those partitions start appearing there.

    I tried to perform a clean install Windows 10 on my laptop, but those partitions are still sitting there. Will my operating system fail/crash if I decided to remove them ? will I still be able to perform a full reset or clean install on Windows 10 if they are not exist anymore ?

    My laptop model: Dell Inspiron 15 7537 (2013 mid)

    Thank you!

  • 09/19/16--10:05: EXCEL SHEET NOT DISPLAYED
  • I have a spreadsheet containing several worksheets

    It should show names of worksheet at bottom of desktop!

    Today it just gives me blank worksheet and F1 for NAME at RIBBON....

    However if I do print & preview I see the expected text and I can print it OK

    I had been working with page breaks  yesterday  with different file

    HELP would be appreciated


    I have looked at PROPERTIES(ADVANCED) ;

    Somewhere within that reference to 3 worksheets. I have LOTS (>1o!) I)s this relevant.

    I was also able to 'find' text  which is a good sign

    The worksheet is grey rather than white

    I believe I had something very similar several months ago disappeared (possible  virus....??)

    By the way: I'm not a robot! Does this serve any useful purpose, or just annoys your loyal customers.

    Thanks. Keep up the g8ood work.

    I am running windows 7

  • 09/20/16--09:37: Freeze on Inspiron 15r N5110
  • Hello,

    More and more often (almost every day, now), my Inspiron 15R N5110 will freeze and, sometime, get a blue screen, and shut down completely. Windows 7 is up to date. BIOS not updated (5 years, now, I think).

    Should I update the BIOS to A11 (the last one) ?

    Any concern with Win-7 ?

    Any concern with AVG (virus protection) ?

    Any clue or your experience wil be appreciated,

    This evening I tried to reset my Windows Installation because it became sluggish.

    I am running Windows 7 Home Office on a Dell XPS 17 l702x. The Laptop has seen a faulty Windows Installation a few years back (¬3) which I managed to mostly override with a Factory Recovery.

    The Recovery Partition and the Hidden Partition are untouched. Yet I still get a small glimpse of the Laptop offering me two distinct windows installations during booting from which to choose. Both of which shouldn't exist anymore.

    I have already tried:

    1. Restoring it via suggested booting up of the recovery portion.

    That did not yield any result. No matter how often I tap F8 during boot, there's no advanced boot options and thus no option for me to simply repair my computer.

    2. Restoring it via Datasafe Local Backup

    The option to restore the factory settings is simply greyed out. The program doesn't appear to do anything.

    2.a) Restoring it via Dell Backup and Recovery

    The program prompts me to deinstall Datasafe first. When I try to do this I get a colorful error message: "InstallScript Setup Launcher Unicode has stopped working".

    3. Manually restoring via the original factory image I kept separate USB Stick.

    The image is the one from my recovery partition, the exact same one I used years ago. When I slot it in and try to boot from there it just says "invalid partition table". The PC refuses to work, unless I restart without the USB.

    Also I don't seem to be able to boot the dos or the advanced settings to manually reinstall windows.

    Slowly I am losing my mind. :/ This has kept me up for 4 Hours now and I only wanted to set back Windows because the Laptop was getting slower and spewing randomly named orders everywhere that I couldn't delete.

    And I don't know what else I could try.

    The hard drive died on my Inspiron One 2320. Replaced hard drive. Reinstalled Windows 7 from disk. Downloaded and installed drivers from Dell Support Site.

    Tried to register my system in My Dell Downloads to get OEM / Dell Software and am getting "Service Tag Not Supported" error. Bios shows correct service tag #. All other parts of Dell website can scan and identify  the service tag. I accessed the site through Internet Explorer.

    I specifically would like the software that came with my computer:

    Office Starter 2010 (tried downloading from Microsoft direct, but it won't accept the serial number since it is an OEM installation- told to contact Dell).

    Dell Stage / You Paint / WebCam Central / Etc

    Thanks for your help!

    I have a dell latitude e6440 and at one time I got an offer to upgrade to windows 10 of which I did. After that I noticed a lot of applications are not working saying the OS has blocked them. Trying to revert to windows 7 is now a problem as the laptop is requiring an administrator password which I do not remember putting it in. 

    Please help

    Hi Everyone

    I have a very severe issue due to which my Dell Inspiron Laptop is in  dead state since last one month. I bought this Laptop in 2010 from UK. Everything was ok until last month when first windows user login screen took extraordinary time to show up and then when I restarted my Laptop Windows refused to start giving me following  error

    1. windows failed to start. a recent hardware or  software change might be a cause.
    2. if windows files have been damage or configured incorrectly start up can help diagnosis and fix the problem.if power was interpted during start up choose start window normally.

    From Dell Windows 7 Reinstallation DVD, which came with the Laptop, I made bootable USB (as my optical drive does not work) to reinstall windows but after "window is loading files" screen when I click on Reinstall windows link it stucks there like forever. It just shows message "Setup is Starting Windows". I have waited for 4 to 5 hours but it does not proceed further. Someone please tell me what could be the reason for this.

    Thank in Advance
