The answer is it depends. All I can give you is advice in how to approach this problem. RAM It's usually a good idea to not over-allocate RAM. The best RAM amount you can add to your server should be the sum of the RAM your machines will use + 1 or 2 GB for the hypervisor. This way you make sure that your VM's will not be starved for memory in case one ...

Hmm, how about "Restore your Dell computer to the Dell factory image using recovery media" which is right after that? This may help you get the recovery media: http://dslbdownload.datasafelocalbackup.com/dsldownload-en.html

Fingers get in the way of what you're drawing so I feel you. See if you can use a stylus with the touch screen. This feels a lot more natural. Also, depending on the touch screen manufacturer, some have driver function that lets you shift the "hot spot" away in relation to where you're touching so you can see where you're drawing.

You can perform the upgrade from a Windows 10 ISO and make your copy genuine as long as you meet the following criteria: You have a genuine copy of Windows 7. You have Service Pack 1 installed on your copy of Windows 7. You do the upgrade within the first year of launch of Windows 10. And lastly you perform the setup of Windows 10 from Windows 7 (doing an ...

Yes. You need to upgrade, though. There’s no need to create a thumb drive or anything. Here’s what I did: Mount ISO using Windows’ 8.1 integrated ISO mounter Start Setup Wait for readiness check Start upgrade It then copies all files to your disk and reboots to setup. Upgrading will take quite some time.

If your current version of Windows 7/8/8.1 is genuine, then the installation of windows 10 will be genuine.

I have an e6420 and use an external monitor. I'm able to get higher resolution. You can also use both laptop screen and external monitor as dual monitor.

The resolution for that screen doesn't go any higher.... The specs clearly state: 15.6inch HD (1366x768) Anti-Glare LED Specs

You can try to press Fn + F1 (or just F1) a few times to toggle between display modes.

Someone had a similar problem here. Even if you have both HDMI & VGA outputs, you'll only be able to use one at a time. Or, at best, they will share the same picture output. You will have to use a USB monitor adapter instead.

The comments to your answer are pretty much spot on. It's hard telling without actually looking at it, but I have a hunch that the VGA port runs off of Intel HD on-board graphics, and the HDMI port runs off of the 7730M dedicated card. The reason it works when you use one at a time is because the laptop switches to using the on-board graphics, or the ...

Give this thread a shot. Specifically the answer from Krige. Linux can be a bit buggy at times with certain hardware. It's possible that the Linux distros may not be able to recognize your HDD. I've had the same problem trying to install Ubuntu on my laptop (a Lenovo). I never did get it figured out and resorted to running it in a virtual environment. It's a ...

From the specs you posted your laptop has one VGA and one HDMI output. If you want two external monitors, one would have to be VGA and one would have to be HDMI.

Here is a cool free Product Key retrieval script that only requires PowerShell from Microsoft Technet: Get-ProductKey Not sure if this will grab an OEM key that is often stored in a protected volume on the computer but its worth a try.

Specifically in the Dell XPS L521X the 32GB drive uses both Intel Rapid Start & Intel Rapid Storage Tech. Warning: If upgrading system RAM; Rapid Start needs to as big as or bigger than system RAM (I believe it comes from DELL at nearly 3X system RAM on a 6GB system); The Rapid Storage uses 18.6GB. So, If upgrading to 16GB System RAM, only 1 or the other ...

I found this answer that might work. He uses a spudger (or sometimes spludger). Its a tool that has a wide thin flat-head screwdriver like end that extends as a wedge, used to separate pressure fit plastic components without causing damage during separation. "I used my metallic spudger in order to push the disk a little bit downwards (somewhere in the ...

The only way I found around this problem is to purchase a headless monitor dongle (they're fairly cheap) and keep it plugged in to the computer. This tricks the computer into thinking a monitor is attached.

I have found a solution to your problem here. Download the latest firmware from the Dell support Save the exe and create a shortcut with the following parameter: " /writehdrfile" Start the created shortcut and it will create a n5110a11.hdr file rename the file to N5110.hdr Create a shortcut exe file with the following parameter: " /writeromfile" Start the ...

E6410 uses 1st generation processors i3 or i5 or i7, they support between 800 to 1066 MHz,installing 1333 MHz may work and not work in certain scenarios, it is better to stick to 1066mhz. Although 1333 MHz scales down to 1066mhz, if not designed specifically for the E6410 it may not work. Some E6410 ships with pc10600 4 gb ram which is 1333 but they scale ...

PS: Moderators - if links to these forums are not allowed please don't given negative, just edit/ remove them and OP can find their own way to search for them. I always use Nirsoft's Produkey for this. Most reliable toolset for all sorts of such simple things. Highly recommended. ProduKey is a small utility that displays the ProductID and the CD-Key ...

Your title and message body ask different questions. So, I'll try a good answer: If Windows 8.1 indeed came preinstalled on your Dell Pro Venue, instead of a product key, it is using Windows Activation Technology 3.0, a Microsoft certificate of authenticity embedded onto your device. Windows 10 installer simply looks at that and never asks a product key ...

I'd give KeyFinder a shot. I've had good success with it.

I'm not sure what's so magic about 84%, but it seems a lot of people have been stuck at the same point. I'd try getting the Media Creation Tool instead & set up your installer on a USB stick [needs 8GB] That way, you've separated any download issue from any potential install issue & at least have the full installer to hand. The tool itself is a ...

Sounds like a dust issue. If you're comfortable with it, open up your laptop and investigate the heatsink fan. Try using a compressed air can which should remove the dust bunnies clogging your heatsink.

You can download a Windows 8.1 ISO (if you don't have installation media) and put it to USB for example. Create Windows 8.1 installation media You can try fixing boot using "start-up repair" from USB or try a quick fix from recovery console: bcdboot c:\windows where c:\windows should exist else change drive letter accordingly.

Same thing happened to me (Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit, desktop computer). I spent the better part of the day trying to upgrade via various methods (Windows Update, Media Creation Tool) with no success. In the end, I had to clean install Windows 7 and upgrade from that. Went off without a hitch. So, I would recommend backing up all of your files (should be ...

No. Modern batteries are not affected by long-term charging, especially only 17 hours. And you can't really harm your laptop by leaving it plugged in either (unless it gets struck by lightning, or something similar).
