You need to understand how the PC was originally purchased and how Windows was licensed. If the PC came with a license for W7 Pro and has a sticker with the code on it, you should be OK to use that code for the upgrade. The OEM license is only valid for that PC anyway.

The console window pictured above is less than useless. On my E6420 it says that it is disabled but the point stick still works regardless. The registry info supplied in various forums did not work for me because I could not find the referenced points in the registry. NOTE: What follows is for advanced computer hardware types and not for a newbie. Out of ...

You may not be able to fit specific other drives, depending on the space available. It's also not impossible that other hard drives may run hotter than the Dell is specced to handle and this may affect the drive's life. But that's a stretch. Really, though, the vendors are either incompetent or are lying to you. The following comment was left by Ben Voigt ...

Unplug the system, remove the battery, and then remove and reconnect the hard drive. If it's then still not seen, the drive has failed. Another option If your hard drive is not recognized, that may indicate that it has failed. My suggestion would be to try booting to your Dell drivers and utilities disc. Insert the disc, then tap the F12 key when ...

Take the confusion out of the issue. What does Crucial or Kingston say about the memory capacity of the computer? The manufacturers manual is a snapshot in time, it only reflects what the manufacturer tested, when the manual was being written. They are rarely updated, unless a new version of the computer / motherboard / etc comes out. ...

I figured out a small work around - I can use the dock as long as I don't plug in the power adapter. I plug the power adapter into the laptop itself and can use the dock without issues.

I just tested the M2 connector on a Latitude E5550 with a SSD and sadly I have to report that is not recognized in any way, even after trying every combination of settings in the BIOS (version A06). The M2 SSD I tested is brand new so I suppose it's not broken. I don't have any other device to test against to verify if it's really working or not. Just for ...

I don't think this system is M.2/SSD - compatible. The problem with M.2 expansion slots is that it allows to use connector TYPE, not necessarily provide COMPATIBILITY. That is: depending on the implementation of the system board manufacturer it can be all, any or either of PCIe, SATA or USB. All depends on the wiring and components. There is nothing in the ...

I was looking for the same laptop, to run linux on it, but it's not that great... Linux support for Dell XPS 13 9343 Fortunately, if you're looking to run Ubuntu on it, this month, Dell announced a developer edition running (modified?) Ubuntu 14.04 LTS XPS 13 Developer Edition

A KVM switch is not the answer here. You'd need two of them and they'd have to both be switched back and forth to go between them. Very confusing and just asking for support headaches. You have two options here (assuming both docking stations have the same connector for their dual outputs). You can have a different input method for each docking station ...
