Dell Drives In A RAID Array With Non-Dell Drives www.webhostingtalk.com

I have a couple of Dell 1950s and in one of them, I have 2x Seagate 15K.5s that I purchased through Dell and I also have a spare sitting in my rack in case one goes bad, also from Dell. I was going to be repurposing one of my other 1950s and was going to get two more 15K.5s for it, but wasn't planning on getting them through Dell (rip off?). This way, could still keep the same spare drive around in case a drive went bad in that system as well. When I was talking to my Dell rep recently when purchasing another system, their hardware tech said you can't use non-Dell drives with Dell drives in the same RAID array because of the different firmware between them. Anyone know if it is true? Anyone have any experience with using drives from Dell in conjunction with the same model drives from a third party retailer?

Dell Vostro 3750 :: Doesn't Boot Linux When Any Device Is Connected To USB 3.0 Port en.community.dell.com

I'm experiencing very strange problem with my Dell Vostro 3750. This machine is equipped with USB 2.0 capable USB ports and USB 3.0 capable ports. During the power-up any USB devices (or even multiple devices via hub) can be connected to the USB 2.0 capable port. However if even a single device is connected to one of the USB 3.0 capable ports, the system doesn't start. I've reported the problem on the Linux kernel related lists: 59561 But the only answer was, that I should report it to Dell suggesting fixing of BIOS. Maybe this is a BIOS related problem, but Windows 7 starts on the same hardware configuration without problems. As I'm mainly using Linux for my work, two USB ports are practically useless for me, I have to connect all my USB stuff via hubs to USB 2.0 ports. My current BIOS (after last BIOS upgrade) is: DMI: Dell Inc. Dell System Vostro 3750/0VP036, BIOS A12 02/22/2012

Dell :: Want To Return My Vostro 1510 forum.notebookreview.com

I received this dell laptop on 3rd of march 2009 and ever since I got this laptop, my life has been a living hell. I've written about my problems before: Vostro 1510 - touchpad/keyboard problems Basically, I've wasted plenty of time chatting with dell representatives and they have already replaced my touchpad (twice), heat sink, fan, motherboard, keyboard in such a short span. I've tried switching to different operating systems and it hasn't helped me in any way. Now, when I try to contact dell representatives, they tell me that its not a hardware problem since the hardware has already been replaced and so they just give me the same software solutions (reinstall os, reinstall drivers) as before without even listening to my problems. One time this representative even cut off the line. Now what I want to ask is : can i return this laptop now ? I know that my 21 day period is over but my work is really suffering right now because of this laptop.

Dell :: Clean Install On D630 -- Am I Missing Any Important Drivers? forum.notebookreview.com

I've tried using Dell's driver disc that came with the system but it's out of date. The Web site has been a mess as well. Selecting through the service tag Dell is offering drivers for hardware that was never part of this machine and hardware that is apart of it isn't listed unless I look at all D630 drivers.

CentOS 5 :: System/administration Menu Has 2x 'hardware' Entries www.centos.org

simple installs of CentOS5.2 i386 on 2x Dell C640's and x86-64 on a Dell dimension 9150 resulted in the System/Administration menu offering two entries each with the name 'hardware' and the icon showing a little chip hovering over a PC. I did "add this launcher to panel" on both as an easy way of checking their properties: The higher entry issues the command 'hwbrowser' The lower entry issues the command 'hal-device-manager' Both have the comment "view information on the hardware on this computer". I feel the hal-device-manager entry has the wrong name, comment, and icon. I think /etc/xdg/menus/system-settings.menu is relevant.

Dell :: Clarification On Physical Memory forum.notebookreview.com

I'm an owner of a sxps 1340 and have the following problem. My system freezes after 5 minutes of operating. It does that 3 out of the 4 times if I reboot. I think this appeared after I installed the videocard update when I received the Dell "Alert". After corresponding with Dell they advised me to do a system restore, which didn't help. So now I did a factory image restore to bring everything back as initially. My system has 4GB of internal memory, but if I start task manager I only see 2301MB of physical memory. And my system is using 51% of the total physical memory. This without having installed any programs except the one that came with the factory image. My question is: Could this be a memory hardware failure? I've attached a printscreen of my task manager.

Dell Inspiron 1750 :: No WiFi Access Through Wind-stream 2 Wire Router en.community.dell.com

Dell Inspiron 1750, Windows Home Premium 7 x64 - no WiFi access through my Wind-stream 2 wire router.

I can see networks in the "connect to a network" box but when I try to connect to them, it brings up a box that says unable to connect to network. Most of the time the wireless status icon shows 5 unlit bars with an orange dot over them. The only suggestion from trouble shooter is reset the router by turning it off and on. No go there. I've also reset router to factory defaults with no change. I can connect with ethernet cable with no problem. I've tried the "flush.bat". My network adapter is- Intel® Wifi Link 5100 AGN - I've updated the driver it says it's working.I've run all of Dell's hardware diagnostics which found no hardware issues.

Out of curiosity, because I really do not know, is there a difference in build quality, materials, workmanship, etc... for people that have an EPP with Dell and order systems and other devices by Dell? Do "Home" systems differ from EPP systems? Like do EPP systems use used parts or remanufactured parts for a new system? Just curious....

Dell :: Studio 1555 Warranty forum.notebookreview.com

I have a Dell Studio 1555. I will be performing the following hardware upgrades in the system: 1. HDD 320 GB 5400 rpm -> HDD 320 GB 7200 rpm 2. Intel Wifi 5100 card -> Intel Wifi 5300 card Now my question is since I will be doing these upgrades myself, will doing this void my warranty in any way. I have 1 Yr Ltd Hardware Warranty, InHome Service after Remote Diagnosis. Also, if tomorrow I have 2 send the lappy 2 the Dell Service Centre for any reason and they find out that I have upgraded the machine, then will it have any effect on my warranty?

Slackware Linux Machine Hangs For No Apparent Reason www.webhostingtalk.com

I have a dedicated machine collocated at some hosting provider and after a while (14 days or so, but timeframe is not constant) it hangs for no apparent reason. It happened 2 times already. Nothing in the logs (it logs everything), nothing at all. Before the commission the machine was running for a month without any problems. The first time it happened the tech guy plugged in monitor and keyboard and could not see anything on the display. Before that machine was not loaded with any traffic, nobody should have actually known it is there (except for some DNS traffic). It took some 20 days of uptime. The second time it happened was yesterday, after some 15 days of uptime. I suspect hardware malfunction because I have 2 "identical" (OS & progs, not the hardware) systems running without any problems. It is an HP DL380 G5 machine, the problematic one.

Dell Inspiron N5050 :: Disable Battery Charge Feature en.community.dell.com

I have russian system (Windows 7 SP1 with all updates on Inspiron N5050) and corresponding Dell software (on russian), but I'll try to describe options, like they be on english. You should to determine appropriate, corresponding to english analogues. In the battery settings there is one checkbox, like "disable battery charge", with description, pointing to battery charge disabling until next Windows boot. So, if I check that checkbox, then... Which EXACTLY system event(s) or situation(s) (the most comprehensive list) triggers the charger back to charge the battery, because "next Windows boot" is too unclear. For example, what about hibernate mode? Precisely, returning from it is not the Windows boot! In which moment of boot that trigger changes? Which system event(s) (application and/or hardware) generates initial command for it, what chain of devices and software calls involved (and can or can't be involved in different situations), how much time approximately consumes each chain link, and mention all affecting hardware settings and Windows settings.

Dell Vs. Supermicro www.webhostingtalk.com

configuration on Supermicro hardware and dell hardware, the pricing is pretty much the same 100+/- so thats not an issue. But I am having a hard time to decide if I should go with supermicro or dell. But here are the points which I have in mind. - As far as dell goes, there is a central place for support, for example, if I have any issues, I know who to call exactly and get the issue solved, no resellers involved. If I go with supermicro and buy the hardware from a 3rd party, I dont know who to go to for support say a Motherboard fails or if I have any other questions, should I ask Supermicro themselves or the reseller? - Has a DRAC card which I've heard is much more powerful than IPMI and I've heard Supermicro has no hardware for remote management as powerful as DRAC, I dont know how true that is. - If I need any parts I know where I have to go to order them and what exactly to order since they have specific parts for specific server models, I dont know about supermicro. I know, most of my points are benefiting Dell. But I've heard from the research that Supermicro hardware use less power and have less hard drive failures than Dell Servers, I dont know how true that is.

Dell :: Getting Out Of The High End Business forum.notebookreview.com

i have noticed on the dell site that they have replaced their high end systems with alienware...what a laughter for such a large company...cannot dell make there own systems anymore...even the high end desktops are being replaced with alienware...its like chevy replacing there impala with a buick...bad move. lot of things dell had been doing lately that is non -consumer....sort of got to the point where i don,t look at the dells anymore... so many notebooks that are non- configurable....no amd,s cpu anymore, no doubt intels are a bit faster in the desktop., but amds would be a nice second choice,,,,and they are not that much slower. lot of bad decisions by the top brass at dell...when i buy a system,,,i want some configuration options....in a notebook, i usually want nivida, because i like to mess with linux...doens,t dell understand things like this...i don,t think they even think about it.

Dell :: Canceling A Order That Is Already In Production... forum.notebookreview.com

I just called Dell Support to cancel my order for a Dell Studio XPS 16 notebook and they said that it could not be canceled because the system is in the final stages of production. Am I not entitled to cancel before they actually ship out the system? The rep said I have to take delivery and then call to request a refund. They have not charged my credit card yet, so could I call my bank and have them deny any forthcoming charges from Dell?

Dell :: E1705 + Weird BSOD = Dead PC forum.notebookreview.com

My computer has been rendered incapacitated in the last week due to an odd blue screen error. Now when the problem initially occured i was opening the application World of Warcraft, as i loaded into the Login screen i was greeted by this odd blue screen error that read! *** Hardware Malfunction Call your hardware vendor for support NMI: Parity Check/Memory Parity Error *** The system has halted *** Ok so i was rather suprised with this occuring as i had recently replaced my Video Card (From ATI Mobility x1400 to a Nvidia GeForce Go 7900 GS) as well as raising my ram from 1054MB (PC25300 NONECC UNBUFFERED 200PIN DDR2 SODIMM) to OCZ 3GB (2GB + 1GB) 200-Pin DDR2 SO-DIMM DDR2 667 (PC2 5400) Now I read a few threads about this initial error and was told it could be many things, anything from a busted memory stick to a busted mother board and HD. Anyways once i restarted my computer i was now greeted with a more normal looking BSOD, which until i turned auto-reboot off i couldn't read. This new error read as follows. PAGE_FAULT_IN_UNPAGED_AREA Yada-yada i have all the error code numbers as well. I read up on this error code and it TOO can be caused by memory, so now my first thought is switch out my old memory and try it again right? So i proceed in having to reinstall Windows, replacing my new RAM with the old. Get my system up and running, everything working fine and then about 3 minutes into playing the Left 4 Dead demo I get the inital error once again and i'm stuck now. I have now been lead to believe that this is indeed as i feared a hardware problem.. I'm going to be running a memtest on ALL 4 of my RAM sticks to just see exactly what's going on with my memory. Is there anything else someone could help me to do? I will post my laptop's spec's as well as the Error Codes and Parameters for each of the 4 system errors i recived (2 at the inital screen 2 at the secondary on startup) E1705 Laptop Intel Core Duo T2500 @ 2.0 GHZ 1GB (2 x 5**MB) Dell Stock RAM (see all RAM spec's above) 256MB Nvidia GeForce Go 7900 GS 70GB hard drive Sigma-Tel sound card Running Windows XP professional SP3 Now for all the error codes along with dates / times: 11/8/08 (First Error) 11:24 PM Error Code 10000050 Parameter1 f8055dbc Parameter2 00000000 Parameter3 8052a8e4 Parameter4 00000000 11/8/08 11:32 PM Error Code 10000050 Parameter1 f80b4dbc Parameter2 00000000 Parameter3 8052a8e4 Parameter4 00000000 11/9/08 (Second Error) 8:43 AM Error Code 10000050 Parameter1 f7a09dbc Parameter2 00000000 Parameter3 8052a8e4 Parameter4 00000000 11/9/08 8:48 AM Error Code 10000050 Parameter1 f7c8edbc Parameter2 00000000 Parameter3 8052a8e4 Parameter4 00000000 ---------------------------------------------------- Ok so I am going to begin a Memtest on all my RAM asap, should take a while. Also I'm concerned with these errors because I had been using my Video Card as well as the new RAM for a couple of weeks straight without any errors and my computer running flawlessly. I am afraid it probably isn't a memory error but i can hope.

Dell XPS 17 :: Booting From Drivers CD en.community.dell.com

Trying to update USB3 driver via various options following re-install of OS (another story/issue) - tried via the drivers CD but couldn't see what I was looking for. Back to Dell website and downloaded and 'installed' what was hopefully the right one. Re-booted, but aagh forgot to take the CD out of the drive! And the laptop entered lots of stuff via the command prompt screen and has come to a halt with a message: A RAM DISK drive is available for this boot cycle as C.It contains several Hard Drive setup tools. Please use these tools only under the direction of Dell Support Staff. I understand the bit about Dell Support Staff, but hoped I could just exit in the normal way (exit>enter). Having said that, I don't know many command prompt entries... It's the full screen, not a command prompt window.Dell XPS 17 win7 x64.

Dell :: Two XPS 1730 P www.notebookforums.com

I'm having 2 issues with my 1730 and I was wondering if anyone here could provide me with some advice. First, these issues are both intermittent, I cannot reliably reproduce either issue on command. Second, my machine shipped with Vista32. Both issues existed in Vista32 and have persisted into Win7. The Vista32 HDD was removed and set on the shelf and a completely clean install of Win7 was performed to a new HDD. Issue #1. Memory Parity Error, System halted. This happens as a BSOD less than 5 secodns after the post at boot. The wording was different in Vista but it said the same thing. It claims it's a hardware error and contact the Mfg. This happens to me once or twice a week always on the first power up. It is extremely rare that power cycling it does not solve the problem. It does not appear to be getting any worse, or better. Issue #2. When gaming (windowed or full screen) the screen goes black and I get a notice that the video card stopped responding and has been reset. 10-15 seconds later the directx picture reappears and the game continues with no interruption. I'm pretty sure these are in fact hardware problems, but how do I prove it to Dell? I can't demonstrate it reliably, and my machine passes every diagnostic I throw at it. It sounds like a cold solder joint somewhere. I would think step 1 would be replace the video card and the RAM, and step two would be replace the system board. I don't see myself being able to convince Dell to just send out a guy with all the parts though...

I am at the end of my tether with the amount of issues im having with my computer at the minute.
