  • His Dell Inspiron 1420, microphone and camera integrated into the laptop does not work after installing Windows 7 Professional

    No sound from my Dell Inspiron 1420 and the microphone and built-in laptop camera do not work after installing Windows 7 Professional 64-bit. My laptop has Windows 7 Vista 32 - bit family premium. My laptop is 64-bit capable and after going through the Upgrade Advisor, I installed Windows 7 64-bit. I can hear sounds when I use a headset plugged into the line-in Jack, but not through the speakers built into the laptop. I already tried new drivers from the Dell website, but I could not find.

    Any help will be much appreciated. Thank you.

    As it is has no drivers 64 bit Windows 7 on Dell Web site, your best chance is to install the 64-bit versions of Vista (if they exist) in compatibility mode, viz:

    Right click on the Vista driver, then select Properties > Compatibility tab. Now choose to run the program in Vista compatibility mode and then apply > OK. Right click on the file and select run as administrator to install it.

  • Pavillion 500-214: I have a HP Pavilion 500-214 and need to upgrade the power supply to support a new video card

    I'm upgrading my video card, and the other needs at least 400w.  The existing PSU is only 300w.  What is a power supply compatible to be installed in the Pavilion 500-214?

    Well, we meet again.

    While the minimum requirement is power for most video cards 400W, I always offer at least 500W; 600W is even better.  This will allow a high maximum operating power.  A modular power supply is good in a medium-sized business, because just use cables that are absolutely necessary.  This allows for better circulation of air in the case.

    This is a power supply that should work for you.  You should check the measurements of the existing PSU (5.9 x 5.5 x 3.4 inches) with the measures of the new power supply to ensure that it will not go in the space provided.  The PSU is the backbone of the computer, this is not the place to save money.

  • Impossible to disable the touchpad on my dell inspon laptop windows 7

    No matter how I try, keyboard gets up in the middle of the text, I type.  have not been able to turn off on my computer dell laptop, windows 7

    Hello Joan.

    You must have an application on your portable computer that governs your Touchpad control. To find it, go to control panel, click Properties of the mouse, find the Touchpad tab along the top row of tabs. Click on that and you should be able to find several parameters that allow you to disable the buttons, the buttons on pointing stick and Touchpad itself. In addition, it has a checkbox to disable the Touchpad when an external mouse is detected.

    If you do not have this application, you must download it from the Dell site. To do that I need the model laptop, you have (all letters and numbers) or your number Service number (at the bottom of the laptop), as well as the version and color depth of Windows 7 you are using (Tip: go into Control Panel, click on system, the info is in the first box of information).

    After back here with your results. Let me know if you have any questions.

    Kind regards

    There should be a small pin hole in the front of the cd player. You can insert a paperclip unfolded in the hole and press. The Board should then opens. If it does not open and close automatically after that, then you have a mechanical problem with the drive and should be replaced.

  • I have a dell studio 540 with graphics card geforce 9800gt, realtek audio, no sound on HD TV

    I have a dell studio 540 with geforce 9800gt graphics card. When I connect the hdmi sometimes I hear, but after awhile, the sound does not work. Now I have no sound at all. When I hooked the HDMI first, I found a realtek window asking me to activate the sound via hdmi. I find it anymore this window. I can't get the sound to work at all now.  I even tried to use 3.5 mm with hdmi and got nothing. 3.5 worked when I plugged in the vga to tv cable, but the picture quality was awful. How will I know if my card grphx carries sound?


    I suggest you try to update the latest drivers for the card sound and graphics card and see if it helps:

  • Dell Studio 1737 Webcam and fingerprint reader

    I recently bought a refurbished Dell Studio 1737 and its big, but it did not come with thewebcam or fingerprint software installed and no disk, so, although I have

    installed the latest drivers, they cannot run as there is no software. I managed to find and download Dell WebCam Manager, but then I installed the

    pilots, he said that there is no device detected. I can not even find the fingerprint reader software, I understand his Digitalpersona called, but I had no record of such or

    software with my laptop. Can anyone help? Thank you

    Hi GSNYDER70,

    I have a Dell Studio 1737 and I changed the original Palm with another fingerprint reader without a provided, naturally original Dell. When I downloaded the driver Dell Web site package that I surprised... There are only drivers, but not the software! The original software provided with the computer laptop Studio 1737 is Digital Persona of Digital Persona Inc. I asked a question to Dell technical support, but no response because I am out of warranty. On the site Web of Digital Persona, I found a software that can work with the fingerprint Authentec AES2810 reader model but you have to pay for it. Quality on the web I found another user of Dell which solved the problem: you can download the Digital Persona version 4.10.3790 of the HP Web site software! Here is the link:


    I installed it and now have the fingerprint reader work perfectly. If you have any further questions please ask me. Best regards.

  • I have a Macbook Pro 2015 retina and I wonder how the cycles of battery are calculated?

    I have a Macbook Pro 2015 retina and I wonder how the cycles of battery are calculated?

    If I load to 100% and then run it down on battery to 0% of course it counts as a battery cycle.

    If I recharge to 90% and run up to 5% or 10%, which count as a battery sprays?     Between what % are there?

    The reason I ask is that I try to keep the cumulative battery cycle count down.

    Thank you


    Whenever he finishes a full charge, it's a cycle.  If you charge 70% one day, then 30% another day, it's a cycle.

    The Apple site, I posted above, it explains very clearly.

    A cycle is counted when the battery has completed a 100% charge, not a discharge.

    You can't share a library that is located on an iPhone, iPod or iPad with other devices. You can only share a library that is located on a Mac or a PC with other devices. On other devices, iPhone, iPod and iPad for example, you then activate home sharing to connect to the shared library.

  • I have an acer laptop and need to brighten the screen... How?

    I have a laptop acer and need to brighten the screen > HOW?

    There are two options:

    • It seems that you are using Windows XP. Right-click on your desktop, click Properties, and then select the settings tab and click Advanced. There should be a tab named after that card manufacturer (Nvidia, ATI, etc.). This tab should have a button that opens a panel of controls specific to the manufacturer, which allows you to make adjustments to the video card, including the color/brightness.
    • Laptops usually have a touch of "function" (Fn), you can stick it together with other keys to adjust some of the properties of your laptop. These other keys are the regular with symbols keyboard or keys drawings next to them, usually in a different color. Looking for a symbol that resembles the brightness, like a Sun. When you find it, press and hold down the Fn key, then click on in the special key that you just found.
  • Hi all! I have a 3 out of 5, and I just bought the new goal of 100-400 L IS II.

    Hi all!  I have a 5 d Mark III, and I just bought the new goal of 100-400L IS II.  I have an EF 2 x III Extender, and I can't get the auto focus lens when using the Extender.  Can someone help me with this?

    Using an Extender X 2 double your minimum opening.  The opening of the 100-400 is 4, 5-5, 6, so if you double it is 9-11.  The maximum of 5 d 3 can autofocus is f/8, and I think that it is only the point central (and with the firmware?  I don't remember).

    Long story short, no AF with the 2 X.   With 1.4 x center point should work.
