5520 Inspiron 15R Core I7 6 GB RAM - Windows Pro 8.1 ataching problems external monitor.

Hi all

I have a Dell inspiron 15 R 5520 bought in December about 3 month and a half ago. Now, I tried to attach a HDMI Cable VGA for monitor or TV, but it does not work. It's as if the cable is not connected at all.

I have the latest drivers, it seems to work, but somehow, it does not recognize the HDMI output: (.)

If anyone knows something about to help I'll be very gratefull. I really need to work with 2 monitors: (.)


You cannot change a VGA connection with just a cable HDMI - HDMI is digital.  VGA is analog.  You need a D/A converter to make this connection.  For example,.

  • Problem with Dell inspiron 15r graphics when you try to play Pro 2013

    Hello! I bought Dell inspiron 15r (i5.12GRam.1TGB) with Intel HD 4000.

    When I tried to play pro 2013 I get a message saying that my card is not compatible, because it is 64 MB.

    What can I do?

    1. Click on the Start button and select programs
    2. Click Catalyst Control Center
    3. Power , click on select switchable graphics
    4. Choose an application from the list or browse and select an application and set the discrete GPU.

  • new mac pro 6 core 64 GB of RAM: reading late 4K files timeline and source monitor

    Here is my speed.  not that I understand all the details of this test, but it seems relatively quickly.

    I experience lag during playback of 4 K, the monitor source or online images of scene.  in other words, when I hit play it takes half a second to one second to read.  Once he plays, he has no problem.

    deselection of video keyframes, remove all unused audio tracks (3 cam project) does not help.  Once a clip plays back (and it reads without problems as I said), when you can come back at the beginning of the clip (up arrow), he rereads - i.e. begins once again - no lag.  in the scenario, let's say you chop a 20 minute interview (ok, in detail: each element seems to be 05:51 long and about 5 GB, h264 - must be an automatic feature on the camera in terms of storage - in other words, no large files of 20 GB or whatever it is)-so when you this chop into smaller pieces, when you then go further down the same hashed clip It is delayed once again.  even if it is the same file on the computer.  then return to the where it did not delay initially, this part now shifts again.

    When I put the 1080 p prores files in the project, fast lighting everything.  (I'm talking to navigate and manipulate items in the editing or even source monitor Panel.  I'm not talking rendering and output.  "I think it works very well.)  I'm at the limit of whats possible with my machine and the sequences of 4K with PP?  This is the format?  intuition and several years of experience tell me whatever it is 422 still works perfectly but nothing h264 will always be even the fastest machine to work so hard.  right?  evil?

    PP CC was last updated

    El capitan (guilty?)

    today work with 5400 1 speed 4 thunderbolt to drive rocketstor toaster.  not insanely fast, but as I said, once I got the game on a clip I already hit play previously, it works without lag.  So how is it possible?  What is this feature that makes this place?  There seems to be things loading in the bg who then are responsible - and when you place this specific element to the following, even if both refer to the same file, you have this lag again.  between the second half and second complete.  I exported a file of 5K h264 in a different project and the computer, finder, quicktime etc has no questions immediately play it back.  What gives?

    any ideas?  I thought that a machine of $5K don't experience any lag really.  No I don't want to throw money to solve the problem, but you know what I mean.

    Thank you!


    PS: I just checked one of my files to QuickTime.  Yes, here also a half second delay on the play button.  not powerful enough system for reading 4K flawless?  are my criteria for impeccable speed on computer too high?

    Throw 4 k on a timeline dramatically ups the flow required for EVERYTHING on the computer. Understand, that for 'typical' UHD (1920 x 1080) as I work with, my pc is a 4-core i7 (8 "virtual"... Yes, whatever) 3.5 Ghz (2 cores overclocked as which proved faster in operation), 32 GB of RAM (RAM frequency has been changed too), GTX970 / 4 GB vRAM for graphics.

    I have a decent drive in this machine... Setup but put most of the things PrPro on a WIDE, material faster striped RAID-0 would work as well or better.

    -: Twin 250GB SSD in RAID 0 for speed system, used for the OS & programs ONLY;

    -250GB SSD for the system cache and cache/database files also PrPro;

    -Disk internal 500 GB at 10 000 rpm, previews; (kept fairly clean, less than a third full)

    -Disk internal 3 TB, project files;

    -Internal drive 2 TB, media files; (maintained below 50%)

    -Internal drive 2 TB, exports.

    This extends to the work of in/out/cache disk so it is not slow things down, and so the CPU can be better used. I do stuff test & family here, keep the media on a PNY 128 GB flash, read-only drive so the USB3 who is fast enough.

    Other things, such as documents & upload files, storage general file, is on other players. This keeps all the foregoing, including the system drive, pretty skinny and good working condition.

    The newest Samsung T1/T3 external SSD drives have been tested for incredibly fast work flow, much more than other readers USB3.

    And of course, the internal drives m.2 must amazing flow.

    It is a system of 'balanced', having enough of every bit of available material nothing stacks up this CPU.

    Then... you can watch your disk configuration. You may need a higher throughput...


  • Dv6-1001xx 4 GB of RAM, Windows 7 - xD card reader problem

    I did a fresh install of Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit.  Before I did and was able to get everything going, or so I thought, got all the drivers.  Apparently the card reader will not read my Olympus xD 1 GB card.  Pilots are JMicron and even tried to uninstall and install the Vista drivers, no luck.  It can read a SD card ok, so I thought, must be the map, except that my written camera pictures of her very well AND I tried it in a laptop (Vista Home Premium 32-bit) DV2200 and the Ricoh card reader could read in this laptop, without any problem.  I have 2 other cards xD more little ones who do not read in the DV6, but are well within the DV2200.  I have read this map ok until I installed Win 7, when I was with Vista 64 bit.  I did my install of Win 7 by letting it rename my old Windows to Windows.old folder, so I guess this is a new installation and not an upgrade, given that I wasn't using an upgrade disc.  I'm puzzled!  Shows Device Manager driver technology of memory and below, 4 controllers: JMB38X MS Host Controller, JMB38X SD Host Controller, JMB38X SD/MMC Host Controller and JMB38X xD Host Controller.  All show they work properly.  I don't see anything else to understand my problem, but if you need more info, I will not provide it.  Thanks for trying to help me!

  • Inspiron One 2320 - All In One No Image displayed. Works with the external monitor.

    System works properly when connected to an external monitor. I use it for this type. Built in touch screen does not display any image, but turns on and stays on. That's all just white. I took it to a guy from the local computer that has not been able to diagnose. He changed the LCD cable I think, he said. I have updated the video drivers.

    Is the monitor shot?

    If I need to replace the screen could I just buy a nontouch screen that is much more affordable and replace it with that?

    In fact, I give you a link to the manual in my last post, but had broken in this post then try this link.

  • Inspiron 15R 5520 strange problem


    My laptop is DELL Inspiron 15R 5520 and I bought it 3 years ago and it was nice but I recently had a problem with my laptop and I hope someone can identify the problem and help solve it.

    The problem is that my laptop makes 1 beep per second every time I press the power button and I had to hold the power button to turn off the laptop and the same thing continues 3 - 4 times until finally turns on and boots in Windows as usual. I was able to run diagnostics ePSA and it found no problems with Windows, I was able to run a test on the motherboard using the program Assistant to the support that I downloaded from DELL website, but the result of the test is passed. It seems that my laptop does not start in Windows as soon as the first test but she page and fail to start for a while and after several tests, it boots into Windows as it should. Can someone tell me what is the real reason behind this and how to fix this?

    Sorry for the long description of the question and thanks in advance to anyone who can help me.


    I see that ejn63 has responded to previous queries 2.

    Yes, you can get an external enclosure from a local store, connect your HARD drive to another system and use it as a HARD drive external.

    Let us know if you have any other questions.

  • Dell inspiron 15R 5520 Graphics

    I have a dell inspiron 15r 5520 and I'm trying to find a dedicated graphics card, which is less than $ 100

    Can someone give me a list?

    Hi D_Man311,

    The Inspiron 15R/5520 is available with the option integrated graph and discreet following:

    Model Integrated graphics card Dedicated graphics processor
    Inspiron 5520
    • Intel HD Graphics 3000 with 1 GB of video memory for Sandy Bridge processors.
    • Intel HD Graphics 4000 with 1 GB of video memory for the Ivy Bridge processors.
    AMD Radeon HD 7670 M with 1 GB video memory

    This option is selected at time of purchase of the system.

    Graphics on laptops are integrated on the motherboard of a computer and where you plan to update the graphics card, you may need to replace components such as the motherboard, AC adapter / CC and heat sink. Although the AMD Radeon is considered to be a discrete on this system option, they are soldered to the system board and cannot be replaced separately.

    Answer please for more details.

  • A few specific characters appear only after the introduction to the keyboard key twice in Inspiron 15R 5520

    Dear all,

    I am facing a very strange problem in my Inspiron 15R 5520 I bought in August 2012. There are a few characters that only appear after typing the corresponding button on the keyboard twice.

    for example if I want to type a tilde (~) character, I have to press the fear side of the number key 1. But, if I press it once, nothing appears on the screen. If I press this key twice, then I get two characters tilde (~). Same behavior occurs with four other characters. Below is a list of characters that do not show by pressing the button once, rather than twice.






    Surprisingly, when I was typing shift + 6 in the field of the composition of this forum, then the sign of the (^) character appeared after press the key once. Whereas, if I try in Notepad or Word Pad or the Mozila FireFox address bar, I have to press the key two times so that character appears twice, and then delete the extra character.

    Can you help me please?

    Thank you


    The problem is with the keyboard language setting. You may have selected English (International) while setting up your laptop / desktop at the beginning.

    Go to control panel of-> all items from Panel of control-> region and language-> Formats.

    Change Format English (United States). It should solve your problem.

  • Dell Inspiron 15R 5520 BIOS UPDATE


    I am updating a BIOS on a Dell Inspiron 15R 5520 using a DOS environment.  I downloaded the update to the BIOS of the support Web site of Dell, which is 5520A14.exe, and placed on a bootable USB flash drive using the Dell Diagnostics Deployment Package.

    When I run 5520A14.exe, once I started the system it just comes up saying 'Test' and does not run in the BIOS update utility.  I thought that maybe the executable may be corrupted, so I downloaded again and still got the same problem.

    I also tried to download the executable file for review 13, who did the same.

    Please advise me on my next course of action.

    Installation from a Windows 8 environment is not an option.

    Thanks for the help.

    You will need to prepare a flashdrive bootable Windows - BIOS can not be flashed from a DOS environment.

  • Dell Inspiron 15R (5521) drivers for Intel Centrino Wireless - N 2230 10/64-bit Windows

    Hey there!
    Please suggest me drivers for my Intel Centrino Wireless-N 2230 wireless network card.

    DELL Inspiron 15R (5521)
    Intel Core i7-3517U CPU @ 1.90 GHz 2.40 GHz and 8 GB of RAM
    10 pro/64-bit Windows

    I should add that, first of all, I have improved my previous windows (W8.1 to W10 pro and everything worked perfectly (including the wireless network card) until I did a clean install of W10 pro... everything works fine except the adapter.)

    Also tried the drivers from the website of the manufacturer (DELL)... but no driver is listed for my card. I tried even to those who are listed IE wireless Dell 1703/1705/1901 & Dell Wireless 1704, but none of them worked. Also given a test for the drivers supplied by Intel... but has not worked.

    Well... seems that driver is not yet or I'm just missing.
    However when I search the drivers for another OS (like W8.1)... my driver for the card is registered, so South I return to W8.1 for now or just wait for the new drivers...!

    Please answer ASAP

    (: :) CHEERS)

    Hey mate!

    I understand your problem... but no one bothers even respond! ***!

    Well... I've set things on mine!

    What have I done?

    Yet once, I did a clean install of W10... updated my drivers except the ones adapter!

    Instead of using the latest drivers, I downloaded the drivers for Bluetooth and Wi - Fi for an OS as W8 diffenent... even if I was not convinced that they r going to work... but anyway... thought to give it a try!

    The drivers installed without hassle!

    Hope this helps u.

  • "Stop 0x000000A5 the BIOS of the system is not fully ACPI-compatible every time as the installation of a new windows 7 integral over Inspiron 15R N5110.


    I have installed Windows 7 ultimate 64 bit on many brands of laptops, but when I installed it on Inspiron 15R N5110, (core i5 and 4GBRAM). I faced an error at startup of windows 7 after completing the installation.
    NOTE: When the installation finished and restarted my computer, this window shown to me.

    Two options from the two options above I chose, I found myself with the blue screen:

    Error blue screen said something these ' BIOS in this system is not fully ACPI-compatible. Contact your system provider for an updated BIOS I don't know what that means and I don't know where is the culprit. I wish I could capture this error screen. However, it is impossible to do because I wasn't the Windows environment. 

    Even if the error related to BIOS necessary for the update, so how could I update as long as windows has not begun.

    Is there something that needs to be configured in the BIOS before installing Windows 7 on Dell laptops.
    I'm quite surprised that the previous system was windows 7, but it was Home Premium.

    The strangest thing is when I tried to start to repair the disk and even disk instillation of Windows to resolve startup problems, I found that this startup repair couldn't fix problems.

    When I tried to do these steps:

    1. Insert your Windows XP CD into the CD-ROM or DVD-ROM drive, and then restart your computer from the CD.

      Note Some computers may require you change basic input/output system (BIOS) settings before you can start the computer from a CD-ROM. For more information about changing the BIOS, see your computer documentation.
    2. When the "Welcome" screen appears, press R to start the Recovery Console.
    3. If your computer is configured to dual-boot or multiple boot, select the appropriate installation of Windows XP.
    4. When you are prompted to do so, type the administrator password and press ENTER.
      Note By default, the administrator password is blank in Windows XP Home Edition.
    5. By default, Hiberfil.sys is usually located in the directory root (C:\). At the command prompt, type del hiberfil.sys and then press ENTER.
    6. Restart the computer.
    When I arrived at "system recovery options, I saw that my system is listed, then I chose then, but I found myself with this ' this"system recovery options"version is not compatible with the version of windows that you are trying to fix." Try to use a different compatible with this version of windows recovery disk, even if I'm sure only that the same disk to install windows I have installed since.

    NOTE: I do not add RAM or other devices. There is a windows 7 Home premium and I just re installed a windows 7 ultimate 64-bit. I don't really know what the previous windows version 7 is 32 or 64 bit.
    I checked the dell forum and I found ' your computer goto your BIOS F2

    That goto advance Select ATA to instead of AHCPI save the setting, and then try to restart your Windows 7

    hope it will work. »

    But he did not AHCPI, but I found AHCI and let ATA instead of AHCI, but no difference that happened.


    Check the steps suggested by LoneWolf1983 from the link below and see if it helps.


    Warning: Be careful when you change the BIOS settings. The BIOS interface is designed for advanced users, and it is possible to change a setting that can prevent your computer from starting properly. BIOS update should be made only if necessary (to solve a compatibility problem, for example). It can be a complicated process, and if an error occurs, your computer could be rendered inoperative. Be sure to observe the instructions of the manufacturer.

    Reference link provided below for more information:

    BIOS: Frequently asked questions


    Thank you very much

    I checked this thread, and I found this solves the problem

    I have changed the serial port in the BIOS for 2F8/IRQ3 and I have not had a blue screen since... fingers crossed, it's her!

    But as you know that no matter what BIOS are different from others.

    Thus, I have not found any serial port in the BIOS to be replaced by 2F8/IRQ3

    NOTE: My problem is when you install a new version of Windows.

    In addition, every time a new windows installation 7 and facing the Blue error screen, I started to Macrium Rescue CD and clicked "fix windows startup", and then when restart my windows, I was not facing the the Blue error screen. If windows starts successfully.

    If the blue screen error was tied to the BIOS, the Refelct Macrium rescue CD wouldn't no matter what (not know this problem)
