is my dell inspiron 5000 series compatible Windows 7

I just bought a Dell laptop inspiron 5000 series with Windows 10.


processor Intel core i5-6200U

6 GB of Ram

integrated intel hd graphics card

touch screen

I need to down grade to windows 7, but I want to know if my new laptop will be compatible? Will be all my I/O work (Usb Dvd drive, etc.)?

Can someone help me out here?

You will first need to go to the website of manufacturers for your model computer and first find out if there are native drivers in Windows 7. A large number of computers that are preloaded with Windows 10 do not pilot have native support for Windows 7 by the manufacturer. If there is no native driver, you will need to consider returning the machine and buying a machine preloaded with Windows 10 Pro with downgrade rights to Windows 7 Professional. Or look through the catalogue of manufacturers for systems already preloaded with Windows 7, usually the business sector will have these options.


Return the laptop if it came preloaded with Windows 8 and buy one already

preloaded with Windows 7, they are still available:

  • Dell Inspiron 5000 Series (is it ok to let trendy or not because the battery is intact and cannot be deleted)


    This dell inspiron 5000 series for use with batteries that can not be delete. Once its full do I have unplugged and just plugged in a time vacuum or simply leave it plugged? I want that its battery to last longer.

    Thank you ~!

    don't know what type of battery you have. but, I spent time to research on my machine before you purchase it. and according to a bunch of Web sites, the most recent (not sure how much newer) lithium cell batteries have a much longer lifetime, unlike those of 4 or 5 years ago. and the Dell machines are made so you can leave plugged in as much as you want. because as soon as the battery is recharged, the battery is not circumvented, therefore no wear on them when it is plugged.

    hope that it will be quite simple.

  • Dell Inspiron 700 m with Windows XP is slow

    I searched the Internet and discovered that you can reinstall using winnt32.exe. I tried and installed on another partition on my drive hard (I dunno really what I do.) The newly installed XP on a different partition has one problem: he can't connect to internet because I think it doesn't have the drivers and I do not have the CD for the drivers. So in my computer, it has 2 hard drives: disk Local (c) and (d), (c) one is the original. So I want to start Windows XP by using the C: drive, but it starts by using the D: drive. I tried disk management, but it is said: the RPC server is unavailable. Any help? Thank you!

    * original title - so I have a Dell Inspiron 700 m with Windows XP, which is with me for 5 years and now is slow as f. I wanted to reinstall XP but I didn't have the CD.*

  • Windows 10 caused a power failure internal repeated at Dell Inspiron 7000 series (7548)

    Hello. I got a Dell Inspiron 7 perfectly good Series I bought 6 months ago.

    Windows 10 was just installed on my laptop and about 10-15 seconds after I log in there is internal an error - power failure. It happens every time.

    It's a little ridiculous. It does not resemble a system restore point is recorded by Windows 10 so can't retrieve Windows 8.

    Some tips would be great.


    There is a problem with the driver for the secondary graphics card. I disabled it and it fixed my problem (for now). It's just a temporary solution until Dell and AMD meet. I'm upset that Dell announces that PC as being "Windows 10 loan" when it is well obviously this far from it.

  • Kubuntu 14.04 on a Dell Inspiron 15 series 3000, 3542

    Recently bought an Inspiron 15 series 3000, model is 3542. It comes with Windows 8.1

    I want to be able to run 14.04 Kubuntu hard disk. It has no partitions.

    What should I do (apart from backup) to (a) wipe windows 8.1 and (b) install Kubuntu 14.04

    I don't have all the data on the hard drive, I use Kubuntu on a desktop computer. You have to pass all that he to the Dell laptop.

    I don't have the CD 8.1 or Windows 8. It would be wise that I had it. Support Dell informed me that he is not for sale online, but I can call a number and buy this way.

    You can download an ISO of DVD WIN8.1.

    If you have 8.0 and 8.1 not, you will need to use a generic key to install.

    Then, you get the key in the bios and change to that.  The generic keys WILL never ACTIVATE.

    BIOS Keyed win8 requires 64-bit support and must be home or Pro according to the label.

    XHQ8N-C3MCJ-RQXB6-WCHYG-C9WKB (Win Pro 8.1)

    334NH-RXG76-64THK-C7CKG-D3VPT (Home Win 8.1)

    Windows 8 keys are encrypted stored in the Bios that is installed at the factory.  There is no more stickers COST due to piracy. (OEM System Builder Versions Do maintain COA stickers)

    Windows 8 is now comes with a real Microsoft Label there is NO MORE certificate of authenticity (COA) labels.

    See the following examples of labels to look for.

    Changing color ink
    The color on the label change is designed to change from one color to the other view from different angles,

    making it easy whether it is authentic.

    Windows 8: magenta to green

    Windows 8 Pro: blue to violet

    Windows RT: turquoise purple

    Real Microsoft labels
    You could try Belarc Advisor.

    I don't know whether or not this shows the key. (Versions greater than 8.3 c display key).

    Windows 8.1 supports version 8.4

    • Operating systems: Works on Windows 8.1, R2, 2012, 8, 2012, 7, 2008 R2, Vista, 2008, 2003, XP, 2000, NT 4, Me, 98 and 95. 32-bit and 64-bit Windows are supported.
    • Browsers: Works on Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari, Opera and many others.

    However, when you change versions by adding softpacks, you must save the previous keys because they are removed and replaced with the packs PRO and MCE.  But windows will not install clean with a pack update if you need the original key to install clean then do windows whenever upgrades to return to PRO or MCE editions.

  • The microphone volume is very low on a Dell inspiron 13 7348 with Windows 10

    On my new Dell inspiron 13 7348 the microphone volume so low that my Skype partners can barely hear me. I checked all the settings in Skype and software audio dell and I updated all drivers... without success

    Connect a microphone extermal solves the problem, however, I prefer to not always have an additional microphone with me!

    Has anyone found a way to increase the volume of the microphone?

    Since an external device works well I'm afraid that the build-in microphone is actually of minor quality... what a disappointment

    So far, nothing has changed. I continue to go all my encounters with my laptop and this webcam with microphone build - in which I used the last in 2005... It's ridiculous... Don't know how many times I have had to explain to my colleagues why I use this external microphone... BTW, their Skype works well on non Dell computers with Windows 10 so I guess it's a problem that only affects users of Dell...

    As I said before, it's a big disappointment, and in the future I will avoid Dell products.

  • How can I get Dell inspiron N5110 to 10 Windows?

    Original title: window updates

    How can I get my dell inspiron N5110 in windows 7 be upgraded to window 10, Dell said it was not among the models he tested for Update window 10.

    Dell statement why would you want to force it?

    Without driver support Dell you would be silly to force an upgrade.

    But if you want too,

    Just buy a new hard drive or ssd and replace the existing one and keep it in case the 10 is not training.

    Download the iso and make it bootable on cd or flash drive and install win - 10 to the new disk.

    Can I connect a 2nd monitor to my wife's cell phone (Laptop Inspiron 5000 17 Windows 10, bought Dec 2015) - without having to buy something more (video, graphics, maps etc.), except, of course, the 2nd monitor.

    I want both screens to be active (and not to replace the screen of the laptop.

    Just checking to see if I can do this natively, without having to make changes to his / my laptop.  10 Windows natively support both screens didn't he?

    And how to connect - HDMI, USB, etc...

    Ron in round rock

    If you want to add an external display, it is not a problem - HDMI is probably the best connector to use.

    If you want to add TWO external displays, which can be a problem if your system has Intel or video hybrid.
