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.

Difference Between Dell Mini 10 And 1012

What's the difference between the dell mini 10 and the dell mini 1012? I'm getting a new laptop for my birthday and i wanted a netbook i've been looking into it for about 3 weeks now and i can't figure out what the difference is between the dell mini 10 and the dell mini 1012 besides the design because the dell 10 doesn't have the wedged look like the dell 1012. I will be using it for my phone (music), surfing the web, school work, and staying connected with friends. My question is what the difference between the dell 10 and dell 1012 (both are mini). Oh and do they have webcams?

Dell Inspiron Mini 1012 Problem

I have a dell inspiron mini 1012, it looked really awesome when i got it. Later i installed partition magic (big mistake) on the win7 starter. It asked me to fix a problem with my drive, i said ok. I restarted my pc & then windows get a blue screen and then restart & when i do f8 to go on recovery, i click on anything, its freezes, so i just managed to do a format. I did a clean format & now i have drive c:/ 200gb primary ntfs & d:/ logical, i tried so many times to switch between ntfs & fat 32, but no difference i see, except my removal hdd on ntfs says nltdr is missing or corrupted. So i tried every thing, i just got a bootable usb win 98. Worked , then got an error saying 'command.com invalid or something', then formated , then tried win me, it was good! And installed the whole installation. But then came to identifying drivers and freeze, then win xp which never worked, i tried it in so many ways. Now i found a dvd called [dell win7 starter] came with my net book. The problem is, i have no dvd/cd drive in my dell netbook. I tried copying files on the dvd to a portable hdd , but nothing worked there.

Dell Mini 10v Problem

I have a dell mini 10v that has never worked right. The wired network function will not obtain an ip. Other devices can, and do just fine with the same setup. I called dell, and told them my problem, only to have them take it for a week, and send it back still no working. The second time, i sent it in, and it came back working, but severely scratched. I called them for a third time to get that repaired, and they told me they would send a person to me to replace the parts. They then told me that they would instead take it for a third time. I sent it in, and it came back a week and a half later fixed, but the palm rest is stuck up on the left side, and the wired network function won't work again. I haven't called them again because i just don't want to deal with them. My question is, will they take it again and send it back still broken, or is the myth true about them replacing a computer after the third time a problem comes up. That would be ideal, but if it isn't, what can i do to make sure the problem is fixed this time.

Hard Drive Is Not Detected On Boot Up Half The Time

So i bought one of those new 2tb wd hard drives, and when i start my computer the drive is generally not recognized in the bios the first time. The bios hangs at the sata port the drive is in for ~20 seconds then says none. Once i reset my pc once or twice the drive shows up like normal, with no issues. Other than this the drive works perfectly. I'm a bit skeptical of these drives since my first two attempts were doa; is this the sign of a faulty drive or does anyone have ideas as to the cause? I have of course checked the cables.

Dell Inspiron Mini 10 Will Not Connect To Wifi

I just recently had a new dell inspiron that my school provided to me and my class. The problem is i can't get my laptop to connect to my open wireless network. I asked my friends if they had the same problem and they didn't. They said once their wifi was on, the laptop automatically connected to it, except for me. My wireless network is visible in network connections and is the first one with "automatic" and a star next to it in wireless network connection. I click the 'connect' button and a pop-up says:

Please wait while windows connects to the "my wireless network" network. Waiting for the network. With a green status bar. After about two mins, it'll just disappear! I don't get any notification of some sort and goes back to where i started. I try to "repair the connection" and when i do, i get a pop-up from the task bar saying "unable to connect to wireless network". I do not know if it's the laptop or the wireless network. I connected laptops with my wifi before and there were no problems. I tried turning on & off the wifi switch, rebooting, i'm just so lost.

Dell Inspiron Mini 10v Screen Problem

A week or two ago, my dell inspiron mini 10v got knocked over and the screen managed to get busted. I sent it to dell to get it fixed. I got it back today and found out that my screen is practically half fixed. One half of the screen is a few shades lighter than the other. And to top it all off, dell completely wiped my hard drive. I lost a ton of pictures and music because of it. I don't see why they had to wipe the hard drive if it was just a screen problem and i don't understand why they left the "fixed" screen like this, half light and half dark. Should i complain and send it back? I'm not sure what to do.

Dell Mini 1010 Ocz Vertex Ssd Issue

Why wont windows 7 recognize my ssd during install on dell mini 1010? I just added an ocz vertex 60gb ssd and during the windows 7 install, it doesn't show the drive (so i can't proceed with the install). I had windows 7 installed on the original 5, 400rpm drive no problem. The bios sees the ssd so i am not sure what the issue is. I am thinking i need some type of driver update that i need to "browse" to during the install in order for the drive to be recognized (similar to an install on a raid setup). Does anyone know what driver i need or any other info that may help?

Install Windows Xp On Dell Mini 10v Through Usb Drive

How can i install windows xp professional on my dell mini 10v through usb drive? Is it possible to dual boot? I have a dell mini 10v that my uncle gave me (he got a macbook pro and didn't need his old netbook) and i was wondering if it was possible to install windows xp professional. I know that windows xp is retired, but i can get it somehow. Anyway, two questions about it:

1. 32-bit or 64-bit? Does it matter?

2. My biggest question, can i install it using a usb drive, and if so, how? I have access to a mac with disc utilities if that is part of it. My friend will let me use hers. Second part, how do i dual boot my netbook? I was thinking of dual booting windows 7 or even vista.

Dell Mini 10 - Is It Legal To Sell Pre Installed Windows 7 ?

I bought a dell mini 10, is it legal to to sell the pre-installed windows 7?

No. The key that came with that computer is tied to that computer and can't be transferred. It is tied to the motherboard that is installed in that computer. This kind of software licensing is called oem, or original equipment manufacturer license. If you want to be able to transfer the software to a different computer legally, you will have to purchase the retail version off the shelf.
