    Inspiron 3147 upgraded to Windows 10 perfectly fine. First update from Microsoft for Windows 10 following clean upgrade resulted in corrupted Windows and will not boot. Notebook cannot be restored to original factory settings either and Windows 10 cannot be refreshed to factory settings from Advanced Recovery options. I need original Windows 8.1 Recovery USB stick or Windows 10 Recovery for this laptop. Is there any support?

    I am having trouble reinstalling windows 7 on my Dell Inspirion N5110 laptop. This is not the first time i have reinstalled windows on this laptop and i am using the same installation CD i used last time. The problem i am having this time is that during installation i am being prompted to select drivers. I have tried to download the newest drivers but they are not recognized during installation.

    Any advice on this problem would be greatly appreciated

  • 09/30/16--16:26: recovery partition problem
  • I found my original Systm recovery disks, and system Repair disk however they are not working.The System Recovery Disk uses Dell Datasafe. the chosen option is to run from my Harddrive and computer reboots, during the reboot to the recovery partition, right away I get problem with the boot manager: "status: 0xc000000f      The boot selection failed because a required device in inaccessible" I have no problems booting from C drive. 

    so then I thought i should run a repair on the MBR on the recovery partition, but then I found the recovery partition doesn't have a letter assigned.  This means I can't transfer missing files or anything.  so main question right now is how to name the recovery partition. and any other thoughts on system recovery giving this error.  should I uninstall datasafe and install DBAR? if so, do I need to start on an earlier version of DBAR and upgrade? or can I go straight to the latest version?

  • 10/03/16--11:43: Install W7
  • Hi,

    I am waiting delivery of 3040, it is unused  but has W8 as its excess stock.  I don't want W8 and don't want to pay for W10, so I want to install W7 as I have a disk & licence.  Once I have installed W7 how do I install the drivers I need?

    As an alternative to using my disk is it better to install an image from Dell site which I think contains W7 updates & then drivers.

    Any advice welcome as I haven't done this before.

    The hidden windows built-in account can be seen when you boot to SAFE MODE. People usually skip the setup of this account so it usually doesn't have a password. If it has one, first try to just press ENTER with no password. If that doesn't work then  try using "password"  or  "admin".  

        Windows always requires to have at least 1 admin account.  If you are an admin account then it is possible to delete the builtin admin account. If you are not an admin account then it won't let you delete the default admint account. (you'll need to change your account into an admin account first.

    2 New Dell Desktops arrived -

    Windows 7 Pro, Intel, i3

    Unboxed, hooked up peripherals in shop, when I go to Windows Update, it never ends "checking for updates". 

    I have:

    KB3135445, KB3161664, KB3168965, also WindowsUpdateDiagnostic

    There seems to be no rhyme or reason to getting updates on the computer before I deliver to staff.

    1.What is the working resolution to this issue?

    2.Can I just depend on automatic updates to one day download and install the 200+ updates?

  • 10/07/16--09:43: Winbom.ini in recents
  • I recently put an old computer back into service from 2007. It was from dell and *think* factory preinstalled with windows xp. There are two user accounts and an admin account. The admin account and one of the user accounts was almost never used. When I opened these accounts, I found a shortcut to winbom and sysprep folder shortcut in both admin and seldom used user account "recent" folder and they were also in recents folder from an account called "user" (guest?).

    Would these files have been run by dell at factory and still in the recents folder since no documents ever get looked at on the those accounts? Or would this folder be empty?

    Thanks for the help!

    EXCEL 2010 : Worksheet grey; worksheet names(bottom of screen: missing) WA


    Running Windows 7 on Dell XPS 17 L702X laptop (shipped: 28th February 2012)

    I have a financial type spread sheet containing more than 10 worksheets. I update the file 5 or 6 times per week, saving file each time ie …..fred10Jul16a…..fred10Sep16aI   I have been using this spreadsheet for over a year.….

    When I open any of these files the worksheet names do not appear at bottom and the worksheet itself is grey (solid) when I expected to see my actual text.

    This spreadsheet is also sent through internet explorer (11) to a colleague.

    The problem also shows up on email : yahoo ; SENT ; DOWNLOAD (OPEN)


    The NAME BOX contains a valid cell reference (F1) and changes to valid name of one of my worksheets when clicked by mouse

    This problem appears to have started around 16th September 2016.

    There were Windows Updates done on 14th September


    If I go into 'info' I can 'print' which shows 'print preview' which is OK

    I can also do 'find' which produces expected result

    This grey problem occurs on ALL  the above named files (in one particular folder/library) fails on file produced in March

    I have other different spreadsheets in other folders which appear not to be affected



    The problem disappeared whenever I selected FULL SCREEN.

  • 08/29/16--15:00: Logo Loop
  • I have an Inspiron 5548 that when I turn on it stays on the black screen with Dell logo, sounds like it is trying to load, then reboots.  I can do F2 to setup and F12 to Boot Manager, but neither gives me the option to restore OS or reboot from USB.  This laptop does not have a CD drive.

    I appreciate anyone that could help me!!
