Dell Inspiron 530 Freezes

A friend gave me a dell inspiron 530 and am running a new install windows xp. The computer keeps freezing randomly. It will run fine for a minute and then freezes but more like a hiccup then a freeze it gets stuck and with some serious lag where you can't do anything. But you can wait it out for a minute and it will run again for a little bit and then freeze again. Sometimes to the point where i have to power down and restart. Wiped out xp and put ubuntu i don't have any desire to run windows. Haven't ran it in ten years not going to start now. A little different but same problems that windows had. Ubuntu seems like it tries to fight the freeze, weird. So here's what i did:

It has a sata 1tb hard drive, ran numerous tests on it. All came back negative. 2gb of ram numerous tests on it all good there too. 512 nvidia pci/express ran tests on it( kind of like the ram test) real extensive everything checks out. Jumped the bios to reset it, checked for bios updates. Replaces the cables on the inside. Sata cables, check voltage on power supply. Checked battery every things tip top. Then i thought what the *** i'll completely clean the whole computer, maybe its some dust somewhere, stripped it all apart like your field cleaning your gun. New thermal compound cleaned fans, it looks brand new again. So then i started running tests on the processor speed test and stuff like that to get it real hot everyone always says "oh yup your computers getting too hot thats the problem" nope it ain't. So between fighting the stupid freezing and hiccups and crap like that, i manage to run every test and do everything i can think of to fix it. I'm thinking that maybe the whole motherboard is shot. But where, cause i would really like to know. And is there a extensive motherboard testing program out there, everything i see has to run through windows and most of the utility's i am running to test my cpu are of a live cd or a bootable cd or thumb drive. And thats crazy to cause i can run the utility cds and knoppix cd no problem with no hiccups or nothing. So then i think maybe it is the hard drive but can a hard drive come back with no errors but the read head is the one with the error?

Answer:- start pressing ctrl and f11 together as soon as you switch on, until the option for factory image/restore comes up on the screen.

Using Nvidia Geforce 9800gt On Dell Inspiron 530

Can i use a nvidia geforce 9800 gt 1gb gddr3 pci express graphics card on a dell inspiron 530? I have a dell inspiron 530, and the graphics card is really crappy. I can barely play vindictus on the lowest settings possible. I want to play some really top-notch games, but i don't want to spend more than $150 on a graphics card. I have zero knowledge of installing graphics cards, so i have no idea if this graphics card is installable into the dell inspiron 530.

Dell Inspiron 530 Video Card To Run Starcraft 2

Whats a decent, cheap video card for my inspiron 530 dell to run starcraft ii on? I'm running on a glorified. 4500 duo 2. 20 ghz processors, 2 gigabytes of ram, and my computer's stock video card, which is 101. 16% useless for gaming. I'll easily be able to afford some more ram, but the price for a new, decent video card is what's scaring me. I'd like to get the most bang for my buck, so any help would really be appreciated at this point! I have star-craft ii installed, and it's just sitting there.

Play Sims 2 Or 3 On Dell Inspiron Mini 1012

Can i play sims 2 or sims 3 on the dell inspiron mini 1012?

Answer:- you will have some problems playing pretty much any post-2006 games on a netbook. Those things weren't exactly built for gaming, with the exception to the ones with nvidia ion built in. I have a similar toshiba netbook with almost the same specs and i have a lot of trouble gaming on it, so i wouldn't suggest it. But you could try if you really really want to and are ready for the game to crash.

Video Card For Inspiron 530

I just bought an inspiron 530 and need to buy a new dvi video card. It has a core 2 quad processor with 4 gb of ram. I also have a 22" digital monitor with 1680x1050 resolution. I am not an avid gamer so i wasn't looking to spend more than $100. Though i would like to have at least moderate gaming capabilities. Oh and in case it isn't obvious, i am basically completely ignorant when it comes to this stuff. So feel free to poke fun if it means you'll give me a good recommendation.

Psu Upgrade For Inspiron 530

Subject: psu upgrade for inspiron 530 core 2 duo, the desktop unit came with acbell 300w psu. The upgrade is needed for additional power supply to nvidia 8600 gts. This is a common and chronic problem. I just got off chatting with a dell agent. She was adamant that the mother board can support only a 280w psu. (1) i would very much appreciate hearing from an inspiron 530 core 2 duo owner who is actually and currently using a psu upgrade: the make and name of the psu (hopefully with modular connections). (2) i would also appreciate hearing from an owner who has adequately tested using the 2 free sata connectors from the native psu, converting them to 4 pins female and then, through the y-shaped connector(that came with card), to the 6 pin input on the nvidia card. Does the native 300w psu support this extra load gracefully?

Dell Dimension E521 Or Dell Inspiron 531

I have both of these systems and want to choose one to keep and one to sell. The parts i will be putting in either to upgrade either are the following:

Amd x2 5600+
Evga 7600gt pci-e 256mb ddr3
2gb pc2-6400
2x 250gb wd sata hd's

Both systems have a 300wt psu, but the 531 allows for a hsf aftermarket to be added, while the e521 has this hsf built into the case type thing. If you were going to choose one system to keep and one tell sell, what would you do?

Dell Desktop Reinstall

Does a dell desktop computer have to be reinstalled by dell only?

Answer:- you can reinstall windows with the recovery media for your desktop, or you can purchase another copy of windows and install it yourself. Or you can switch to linux and install it yourself. You can have a friend do these things as well. You can also pay a repair technician to do one of these things. If you have to send your computer back to dell, they will only reinstall the copy of windows that the unit came with when it was new. Reinstalling your os yourself, or having a friend do it, or having a technician do it, or changing operating systems will not void your warranty.

Run Mac Os On Dell Desktop

Is it possible to run a mac os on a dell desktop?

Answer:- not legally. Apple manufactures their own motherboards, which are different from those found in standard pcs. Apple motherboards don't have a bios, and they have a security chip. If the os doesn't find that chip, it won't install or run. There is no legal way around this. Emulation won't work - all legit makers of virtual machine technology, vmware included, have signed legal agreements with apple stating that they will not attempt apple hardware emulation. Apple's legal team is pretty good. You can buy a mac mini. They're pretty cheap, can run windows as well as mac os, and you can use your existing monitor, mouse and keyboard with it.

Dell Desktop Restore Original Settings

How can i restore my dell desktop to its orginal settings? I have a dell desktop. It's not old, but it's not new, i've been using it for a few years, and it suddenly got the "blue screen of death", and my mom was fiddling with it and i don't know what she did with it but. Once i turn it on, it goes right to a black screen and says. "Strike f1 to retry boot, f2 for setup utility". I clicked f1, and it just says it again and makes a little beeping noise. I also clicked f2 and there was really nothing in there that would help me i don't think. How can i somehow boot my computer and then get it so i can re-install windows xp again and get it to work?

Video Card To Play Play Left 4 Dead

Hello there, i was wondering what is the best video card? Because i asked a question a while ago on how to play left 4 dead on a net-book. But the gay there said i need a powerful pc to play it. Ok. I have a video card problem. Because. I think it is weak because it cant even enable the 3d acceleration in plants vs zombies! I was wondering if it has something to do with my video card? Or something wasn't installed like direct-x? And i searched here how to know video card brand. But i followed all instructions and i didn't see one! Or maybe i didn't just notice it? I think it's intel because everything i see is intel. So here is what i wanted in my question:

What is the problem of my video card?

What is the best video card brand?

Can someone tell me all the video card products of intel? And which is the best of it?

Restore Windows Xp To Factory Settings On Dell Desktop

Restoring windows xp to factory settings on a dell desktop. My family's desktop computer is riddled with viruses, so need to restore it to factory settings. All data backed up. With my old laptop i did the restoring thing a couple of times - in start up mode you press f11 i believe? But that was a sony, does that still work with dell?

I know sometimes you need a disc to reinstall windows xp but am not sure if the computer came with one (it's very old), and if it did, i doubt i'd be able to find it!

Amd Phenom Ii X6 Or Intel I5 On A Dell Xps Desktop

What do you suggest, amd phenom ll x6 or intel i5 on a dell xps desktop im personalizing on their website? I don't play crazy huge games or do anything way fantastic with my computer so i don't need alienware like stuff, but for the same price, which one is better, faster, more reliable? I have amd anthon x2 right now on my current inspiron 531s, can't complain with it at all, but i can't help hearing a lot about the new intel i3s, i5s, and i7 processors. $1, 000 is the budget that includes a $200 monitor, and i'm definitely going to get a pretty good graphics card!

Reset Bios Password Jumper On Dell Desktop

How do you reset the bios password jumper on a dell desktop?

Answer:- i know some methods. 1. The best and easiest method: close os and shut down the electricity power of computer. Open your computer box, take out the cmos battery from the main-board. Then the bios password will be reset to blank. Put it back after a few minutes. 2. Follow some hard tutorials, it is difficult to do. It is better that you are a expert. For example this tutorial: bypass bios password or crack cmos password? http://passwordreset.org/bios/bypass-bios-password-or-crack-cmos-password.html

3. Use the bios password recovery tool http://www.Biospasswordrecovery.com, but that is not free!

So i would suggest you the 1st method. Hope it helps.

Dell Inspiron 15 Or 15 R ?

I really like dell inspiron 15 laptop, because it has the best user reviews (4. 5 star). However, the dell salesman told me that it's discontinued and he asked me to get inspiron 15r instead. I know it's a sales pitch because 15r is more expensive. However, it's rating is only 4 star (as compared to the 4. 5 star rating of 15). I called dell to confirm that inspiron 15 is not discontinued. However, this salesman said that 15r's processor is newer than 15's (if i can trust this one)!

If you have knowledge about the processor's of either laptop model, would you share you opinion? In summary, inspiron 15 has the best user reviews but maybe an older processor, while inspiron 15r has lower user rating but maybe newer processor.

How Much Ram To Max Out Crysis ?

After reading this article on vram, and seeing the following chart. I'm wondering how much vram crysis can occupy at 2560x1600 with 4xaa? The graph above is pretty hard to extrapolate, but if i had to guess, at max res and 4xaa, crysis saturates 1 gb of vram. I'd try it myself but don't have the resources to do so. That hypothetical question is related to the higher-end cards with their 1 gb of vram granted, most games aren't as demanding as crysis, but could 1 gb be a performance bottleneck for those 5870s in crossfire (with one gb of usable vram) at higher resolutions? Just something i was wondering about and possibly keep in mind when purchasing my next cards. http://www.Yougamers.com/articles/13801_video_ram_-_how_much_do_you_really_need/images/crysis.jpg
