  • Issue#8271: Linux - Migration To SSD On DELL Inspiron 5520 Ubuntu 14.04.3 / Windows 10 Dual Boot

    Hello, I want to migrate from a 1TB HDD on my Inspiron 5520 to a 1TB SSD. I normally use a Clonezilla distro, which has been optimized for Ubuntu and has USB 3.0 support. Can I just hang the new SSD on a SATAWIRE cable and use Clonezilla in the normal way, or is there something else I will need to do? My current Clonezilla distro is "clonezilla-live-2.4.2-10-amd64.iso." Thanks, Hannibal

  • Issue#19615: Windows 10 upgraded failure - Dell Inspiron N5050 - display driver not working

    The short version of this post is a warning to be careful upgrade any Dell Inspiron N5050 laptops. The issue shortly after booting up.  The display goes blank shortly after the Dell and Win splash screen (still can hear the short Win10 music rift after the screen blanks out).  The very first boot up after updating to Win10 worked fine.  After that first boot...well.  Using an external monitor works and shows the laptop didn't just crash. Booting in safe mode and looking in device manager shows an error with the display driver.  A quick web search listed others upgrade attempts with the same problem, but no solution. I doubt there's many of these laptop around, but wanted to share.  Hopefully I'm not rehashing someone else's post or crying wolf when there happens to be a fix out there.

    Hello, I've been using a m555b Bluetooth for more than 4 years with the same laptop: Win7, Win8, Win8.1 and now Win10 But I currently can't: after the full new installation from scratch, I'm unable to pair it. The Broadcomm "Dell 365 Bluetooth"  module works fine, I've successfully paired an iPhone 5S, a Microsoft Number Pad and an audioset. It properly detects the mouse (including brand and model), when I press the "connect" button under it. But I press the "pair" button on the Bluetooth setting panel on Windows 10, I obtain the warning box "it didn't work - please try again and check your mouse can still be detected" When I press the "close" button and make a new attempt: no further sucess. I remember having suffered such a similar issue with Win8 3 years ago. Please help me!

  • Issue#156918: HP Photosmart 335 Printer Software for Windows 10 Dell Inspiron Laptops

    Hi I am in need of downloading software that is compatible with running on a Windows 10  Operating System. I have the original disc to the printer but it stops loading due to the fact that it is not compatible with Windows XP operating system. HP does not support this product as its over 10 years old and there are no websites available for me to download compatible software ever since I bought Windows 10 based Dell Laptop. Any suggestions entirely welcome as its a good printer with reasonable resolution for printing photos only. Can't understand why HP discontinued their support on the official website and withdrawn the driver download page for this printer.

  • Issue#198374: Geforce - Dell Inspiron e1705 doesn't find any compatible hardware with 179.48 drivers windows 7

    Hi guys, So, I recently picked up a used laptop and I reinstalled windows on it. It was already running windows 7 but I wiped it because I wanted a fresh install. Now, I can't get the drivers to install for some reason and it's driving me crazy trying to fix this because all I wanted to do was play some old games on this laptop. The drivers worked fine before but now I can't get any sort of nvidia driver to install. Can someone please try to help me figure this out? I really don't want to feel like I wasted money getting a new charger, battery, and the actual laptop and then not be able to even run the screen at full resolution.

  • Issue#357161: Dell - Inspiron Windows 10 upgrade - what to expect

    After that, I let Microsoft install the video drivers it wanted to-and they work. It seems the system is red improperly on a clean install, so rolling back then letting it step forward worked, at least in my case. YMMV - good luck, shouldn't be this hard.
