Dell Dimension E521 Windows 7 Compatibility

Is dell dimension e521 windows 7 compatible?

It runs vista? Yeah, you are good for 7. X86(32 bit) if you have less than 3 gb and 64-bit if you have more than 3gb of ram. You can also check the microsoft for the windows 7 upgrade advisor download:

Download it and it will scan you specs and make a recommendation based on your system.

Dell Dimension B110 Windows 7 Compatibility

I have a friend with a dell dimension b110, i have a copy of windows 7 ultimate, and i'd like to install it on this machine. I haven't had very good luck with windows 7 myself, but it offers a lot better experience than the aging windows xp, that she has installed. So, really i was just curious if windows 7 ultimate would even run all that well on this machine, compared to windows xp sp3? Which would you recommend? I personally love to tinker and such, but it's my step mothers machine. She wouldn't be very happy if i was to install an os that ran slower than the previous. I have a track record for screwing up this machine as well. I don't want to add to that xd so i figured i'd ask what all you guys think. Should i go for it and install windows 7, or just leave it as it is, and keep windows xp? Is windows 7 going to run slower than xp on this machine?

Dell Dimension E521 Drivers

I am wondering if it would be better to download something like driver detective or one of those kinds of things, or should i just pay dell $59 for a month of tech support from them? I have several drivers that need to be updated. I have tried to do that on the dell site, but they will (apparently) not let you use even their site w/out paying cause i always get an error message when i try to download something from there. I'm guessing that if i pay them, i get a new "service tag" and can use their site for a month and update everything. Or should i just pay $40 for a few years of driver detective (which is sponsored by dell, i think?). There is other driver software too, but that is the one that sticks in my mind. What do you all think? I've been struggling with this computer for two days now and am thinking that the $59 might be worth it.

Dell Dimension E521 Wont Boot

When you push the power button it lights up for a second then immediately shuts back off. My initial thought was that there was a power supply issue, but i've now scratched that as i've used a different power supply in the case, and received the same result. I also put the dell power supply in another case, which booted normally. The specs:
Amd 64 x2 series
2x512mb some off brand i think. Had a 7300gt in it, but it has integrated graphics so i pulled that out. Right now i'm looking around for similar problems and troubleshooting. I await your knowledge.

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 Dimension 4400 Compatibility

I bought a dell dimension 4400 over not this last summer but the summer before that i've been very happy with. It has 2 gigs of ram (upgraded from one with crucial ballistix), an ati 256 mb card (128 shared) and a 305 watt power supply. The card im looking at is a e-geforce 8600gt superclocked 256mb (part number 256-p2-n755-tr) and im not 100% sure its compatible with my system. I know it recommends a power supply of 300 watts. My system has pci express slots, thats about all i know right now. Anyone know if this card is compatible? And if so, will it be loud as *** either because of the video card fan or because it kicks up heat and causes the main system fan to run at higher power all the time? I don't think an upgrade would be worth it if things get hot and loud.

Dimension E521 System Restore

Dimension e521 system restore. I want to go back to the pc's factory defaults because my system is very instable. Does anyone know which button to press to enter this 'restore to factory defaults screen'. It used to be ctrl+f11 in win xp, but i don't know what it is with vista. A friend of mine said it is now f8, but that doesn't do anything either. Would it be the same if i entered the bios and system restored from there? Or does that delete the os as well?

Dell E521 Psu Upgrade

I was looking for a new computer when i came across a dell e521 with a amd athelon x2 5600+ 2 gigs, the works but i would like to upgrade it to a 8600gts video card. But there is a problem the 8600 needs a 350 watt power supply min. The stupid dell system only has a 305 watt psu. How ridiculous. Putting in a new psu would for sure void the warranty which is the only reason i would buy a dell. So i don't know what to do. Any ideas?

Hp Pavilion Zv5000 Windows 7 Compatibility

Can i get windows7 hp pavilion zv5000?


Sure, i don't see why not. Not sure as to exactly what you're asking, but if you're asking if you can put windows 7 onto an hp pavillion zv5000, i'm pretty sure it wouldn't be a problem. There is a windows site that you can go to that will let you test to see if your computer is compatible. http://bit. Ly/2popc

Radeon Hd 5770 Windows 7 X64 Compatibility

I'm looking at graphics cards, and i'm thinking about this radeon hd 5770 using a windows 7 x64 system, but reviews addressing win 7 are mixed, so i'm not so sure. My system specs are. Windows 7 home premium 64-bit

Phenom ii x4 955 black edition 3200 mhz

Asus m4a78t-e (with integrated graphics hd 3300 - 128mb ddr3 1333 sideport mem)

2gb ddr3 1600 memory (i'll add 2 x 2gb more before i get the graphics card)

500w psu

The windows experience index in my current system for graphics is 5. 2 and for gaming graphics 4. 6 (scale of 1. 0 - 7. 9). I've read of some people getting 7. 0+ wei scores for a hd 5770. My main concern is compatibility; i've had issues with stuff i installed and their outdated drivers. If anyone knows about the card i linked above (the reviews are mixed on win 7), or can recommend an hd 5770 that has good drivers for windows 7 x64.

Belkin Basic Wireless Router Compatibility With Windows Me

How can you connect a wireless router and incompatible computer to the same modem at the same time? Verizon had an outage in my area yesterday and, as far as i can tell, it completely fried my old linksys router. So today, when i went to go buy a new router (in this case a belkin basic, since it was the only one i could afford currently). I got it all set up with my xp computer, but when i went to plug in a second computer (a windows me) to it, the computer would not register. It looks like it's incompatible with the router, from what i've read on the internet now. There were no markings on the box that said it was incompatible with windows me. The store will not let me exchange the router since i removed the plastic wrap around the box and i don't have the cash to get a different (and probably more expensive) one. I use a dsl modem and need some way to connect the me computer to the internet as a secondary computer without unhooking the router every time to directly wire said me computer to the modem. Yes, the me has an ethernet port right on the back of it, no adapters needed.

Dell Dimension System Restore

I have a dell dimension 2400 and the way that dell tells me to do a complete system restore isn't working. They say at start up to press the ctrl + f11 buttons and this will give me the option to rest to factory settings. However, when i do i get a keyboard not working correctly error. So, is there a better way to restore my settings or is there some way to download a system restore cd. How can i fix this problem. P. S. Whenever i press f1 or f12 those keys do what they should, the ctrl+f11 does not.

Dell Dimension - How To Enter Into Bios ?

How to get to the bios on a dell dimension 9100? I am trying to increase the video memory by imputing more ram. They say you press the del key when you start the computer but all there is f2 setup and f12 the boot menu. When i press del nothing happens. Answer:- for entering into dell dimension bios and for most dell computers, you should press "f2" within a second or two after turning the power on. When the blue dell logo appears, press immediately. If you wait too long and the operating system logo appears, continue to wait until you see the windows desktop. Then shut down your computer and try again.

Ram For Dell Dimension E520

Last year i went on the crucial and dell sites and it said that my max memory was 1gb per slot. 4 slots, so that's 4 gb. I went on the website again tonight and now it claims that i can have 2gb per slot. I know my 32 bit operating system will only utilize 3. 5gb, but is it telling me that i can have 2gb per slot now? Disregard the bus speed. Anyway, i know how to use google, so people who actually own an e520, please respond.

Overclocking Dell Dimension 4600

I have a dell dimension 4600 with a pentium 4 2. 8 ghz cpu in it. Now im using cpucool to overclock it to about 3 ghz. I have stock cooling and im feeling whats coming out of the fan and it felt hot at first and now its just regular (as if i had it at 2. 8 ghz). I have some quick questions:

1) i don't trust the temp readings that cpucool is giving me. Is there anyway i can get accurate readings or find out if my cpu is running too hot?

2)would anyone venture a guess what the safe clock range for the p4 2. 8 ghz is?
