i just started up my lappy and got this: Hardware Malfunction Call your hardware vendor for support NMI " Parity Check/ Memory Parity Error The System has halted
When I start up my laptop the Windows splash screen loads but with vertical lines then the screen shows random fuzzy lines and colours and then the screen goes completely black and nothing happens. At first I restarted and ran in Safe Mode and ran CCleaner which after restarting worked for a short period but then would suddenly go to a black screen and one occasion went to a blue screen with the following message *** Hardware Malfunction Call your hardware vendor for support NMI: Parity Check/Memory Parity Error *** The system has halted *** .....
I'm running a NVIDIA GeForce Go 7900 GS in my E1705 and I've been having some problems with the nasty BSOD. This is the error message I get: *** Hardware Malfunction Call your hardware vendor for support NMI: Parity Check / Memory Parity Error *** The system has halted It only seems to happen when I'm playing WoW... and its getting really annoying. I had thought it was an overheating problem before, but I've been able to keep my GPU temp under control pretty well lately.

My key board started malfunctioning about 3 weeks ago. I phoned Dell Support and they said that they would not talk to me because I voided my warrenty by installing Windows 7. Is that true? How call Dell get away with voiding a hardware warrenty when you install different software? There must be millions of customers who no longer are under warrenty and they do not know it.
My Inspiron N5030 Laptop won't boot it gets stuck after the Dell logo. Then a "_" sign appears at the top left corner of the screen and then it just hangs. I have already tried the Dell CD and run diagnostics with no problems found. Could it be a software issue or hardware as in malfunctioned hdd?
I have Win7 32-bit at home and my china phone can be detected and usb drivers were loaded but when im at the office using Win7 64bit, i keep on getting a hardware malfunction error. We are using here Dell Optiplex 3010 Desktop while at home im using an assembled CPU.
my Dell inspiron 15R N5010 crashed on me, I had no previous warning that this was going to happen, when it crashed I was just watching a movie and not using up much CPU power. The laptop had not over been over heated, I checked straight after it crashed. It now is completely unresponsive i've tried using different chargers, batteries and I have also checked the internal hardware and everything seems to be intact, I assume at the moment it is a motherboard malfunction.

My pc had hardware malfunction; power supply interruption. At this moment it is working stable. My Windows 7 installation is ok but Ubuntu Maverick which I used during crush has malfunction. When I start to boot it looks like this: I had to make a foto so you all can see the problem. all my important files are stored on Ubuntu partition..
If I type "halt" from root terminal , the system tries to shut down , its closing all apps and services , unmounting disks , shutting down network etc, but finally I can see a message "System Halted"...But it doesnt turn off the monitor though..is this a bug? I have tried many times , however "poweroff" works properly..I was thinking since these are similar commands , bith should give the same result ...I usually use "halt" as it has fewer char to type!
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?

I contacted the Dell support team to see whether my m1330 is affected by the bad batch of Nvidia Graphic card and I got this respond ----------------------------- On your concern about the Nvidia Graphics, I should say that your system is not affected by it, however I am a Hardware expert with the XPS Team and would recommend to diagnose the Hardware to identify any problems. To extensively diagnose the 'Hardware', your active participation is requested. Please follow all these steps mentioned below as they are inter related: 1. Disconnect all the devices which are connected to the system, like:internet cable,usb key,etc. 2. Power off the laptop. Disconnect the power cable from the laptop. 3. Close the system, turn it upside down, slide the battery latch and remove the battery. 4. Keep the battery out and put the system back in front of you..................
My Dell Latitude D820 had lenny installed and working fine. I did not have anything exotic installed (other than perhaps nividia drivers). I went about upgrading to squeeze following the notes/documentation on the debian web site. During this process it mentioned that the following firmware was not going to be installed (as it is not freeware; BTW I had non-free in my sources.list): tigon/tg3_tso5.bin tigon/tg3_tso.bin tigon/tg3.bin On reboot it was clear that the new kernel was not in a healthy state. Even when booting with older kernels I had serious stability issues. After about half a dozen reboots trying to resolve problems I was experiencing the laptop would not even load the Dell splash screen on power up. I could not even navigate into the BIOS. Nothing appeared on the monitor (or external monitor). I put an ISO disk in the DVD drive to see if it would boot from the DVD; it seems to load but absolutely nothing appeared on the screen. I tried navigating the grub menu (not displayed) and load my windows partition. When it booted to the point where windows would normally display the GUI it flashed several times and displayed a 'BSOD' with the following message: *** Hardware Malfunction. Call your hardware vendor for support NMI: Parity Check / Memory Parity Error *** The system has halted *** It looks like my laptop is now FUBAR. It is out of warranty so any fix is likely to be DIY. Any ideas on how to resolve this?
Just installed OpenSuse 11.4 successfully on my machine (E-machines T6212). Previously attempted to install Ubuntu 11.4 on it as well. Both OS have resulted in my computer screen turning white with blue lines and the entire system freezing; unresponsive to keystrokes and even keyboard CAPS/NUM lights don't respond. Only way I can get system to come back is to physcially unplug it, not even power it off with Power button. I believe there is something with my graphics card that may be the culprit; ATI Radeon™ Xpress 200M - ATI Radeon™ Xpress 200M Specifications Because for both OpenSuse and Ubuntu this problem came up. However with OpenSuse I am able to get to the Terminal Screen via : 1- On startup typing '3' into the screen and getting into 'grub' I think it is called. I am not able to GUI. I have read: Configuring Graphics Forum Page l in the forums here as well as looked into the Radeon page for the drivers. I have also found the following thread here dealing with my particular graphics card but : 1-In my 'xorg.conf.new' file in my /root the correct driver "radeon" seems to be listed. 2-I added "radeon" to my 50-device.conf file in /etc/X11/xorg-conf.d/.. directory
I am planning to buy an AW or XPS 16 in a couple of months, in US and one of my relatives will bring it in India, where I will be using it. Does anyone know if Dell has International coverage on their Limited Hardware Warranty? Will I be able to receive Dell's service (should any hardware problem arise) in India, for a laptop purchased in USA? Its not feasible to transport the laptop back to US just to repair it.

My ubuntu server was working normally but it suddenly failed to start, stopping after the following message: init: ureadahead-other main process (587) terminated with status 4 after this message, the system halts and does not finish the start up processes. If I start the server in recovery mode, I get: init: ureadahead-other main process (587) terminated with status 4 [ 21.892940] ACPI: I/O resource w83627hf [0x295-0x296] conflicts with ACPI region HWMI [0x295-0x296] the system also halts and does not start.

I Have a XPS M1530 with windows 7 and vista installed on the hard drive. My sound has stoped working and then it restarts randomly when playing a dvd or a video file on the system. So i Phoned up Dell, and i tell them that i think the problem may be an hardware problem. As it happens on both of the operation systems, but plays fine through the headphone socket.
I have a DELL XPS 15 L521X, (Mid 2012), I have Windows 8 on my machine, Suddenly when I restart my PC a black screen is visible without any error, but system continue beeping. Then I press Power button and shutdown it, after some time when I start it again, its start working normally. Once system starts its start working without showing any hardware or software problem whenever I shutdown or restart, sometime its start working sometime its continue beeping without showing any error.
My dell inspiron 3521 keypad is not working i have updated all the software and system update is on. i haven't installed any software, third party application or anything else like that which interferes with my keypad functioning. I tried to update the drivers for the keyboard from device manager but it showed that the driver is already up to date. I also checked the ribbon that connected to the keypad with the system hardware and there is no problem in the connection there also.
I'm sure there's an underlying hardware problem for this... but I figured I'd start here as I do not know the specific hardware issue. I'm in Ubuntu 9.10 (Ubuntu Studio actually) and my computer will not shut down properly. I get the splash, then a black screen, then something like #terminating processes, #closing connections, #blah blah blah, #will now halt(or will now restart if rebooting)
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
I am considering getting a Latitude e6400 from the dell outlet, but was wondering whether any of you remember/know whether refurbished systems normally qualify for microsoft's free operating system upgrade? Here it would be for a free upgrade from vista business to Windows 7 professional (manufacturers including dell supposed to announce these programs on friday) If the system doesn't qualify, I'll go ahead and order a refurbished system from Dell Outlet before Friday, or buy a new system on Friday.
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.
I just got my Seagate Momentus 7200.3 320GB hard drive today. I don't have any external cases I could use to do a backup image and I wanted to do a clean install anyway since I haven't done one to this system since I bought it. 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. Here's what I've downloaded: Quickset Application Sigmatel Audio driver Touchpad driver Smartcard driver
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.

I got a problem with a Dell Latitude E5500. I can not disable the hardware beep after the gdm3 login screen has been loaded. All alsa beeps and system sounds are disabled and/or muted. I also tried setterm -blength 0, xset -b in startup scripts. They disable terminal-beeps, but not the halt or the gdm login beep. I tried wasting around with the gconftool, but nothing happened. It is an annoying sound. If you use, init 0 to shut down, no beep comes up.
I had seen a few threads in this forum regarding hardware lease. how this is actually happen? can someone explain me more on this? i see that there are leases from dell are from 24 - 48 months in USA. is the hardware in warranty period all this time? suppose hardware dies then? just wanted to know for more info

I purchased a Dell Inspiron 9200 in Janaury 2005. It has been an excellent laptop since day #1, but an upgrade is now in order! Can ANYBODY have a clue as to when Dell will release laptops based on the new CENTRINO 2 line? I'd love to buy another Dell, but if they don't plan on upgrading the hardware soon, then I'll have to go to another brand.
Looking into getting a Dell XPS series, but can't find any info on having dual HDD bay's. I really like this feature on my HP, but dollar for dollar Dell has much better hardware out of the box. Some one let me know if any Dell's have this. Probably going to wait till Windows 7 comes out.
For some reason my 8350i's Spell Check feature is malfunctioning as of today. I have all 4 Spell check boxes checked/set, and saved those 4 settings as checked settings. As working before, when an email is sent out, it shows the words spelled incorrectly and offers the correct spelling for the clicking of the trackball to correct. As of today, it WILL underline the incorrect spelled words in an email-but, if you hit send (expecting it to halt an offer the corrections) a black box displays stating "Input system error. The system is being restarted" and it sends the email out anyway - uncorrected, with the typos. I've done nothing out of the ordinary since this feature last worked... Things I've done/tried to correct/repair (that have not worked): 1) Several Battery Pulls 2) Several ALT Right SHIFT Delete's 3) Reregistered. 4) Master Radio Reset(s)
I have a Dell Inspiron laptop and my mousepad does not work while typing. This is an annoying default setting and it prevents me from being able to play most computer games. I have already tried changing the dell touchpad settings (Control Panel>Hardware and Sound>Dell Touchpad) to no avail, and I am not willing to get a mouse.
My server is a VPS which is running with CentOS. I found a wield problem that the system clock always runs faster than the hardware clock. For example, I set system clock and hardware clock both on 20:00. After about half an hour, the system clock will be 20:34/5 which is wrong while the hardware clock remains correct (20:30).
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.

I would like to buy a Dell Latitude 6540 and have found out the following statement in the configuration: “Operating System Recovery Options: no media”. It also says: "Dell Backup and Recovery: Dell Backup and Recovery Basic" I think this means that I will not get a recovery disk along with the system. If so, I wonder how I can re-load the system in case I need it for whatever reason (for example how can re-format the HD if I need it to?)
my laptop got into trouble while i cleaned a virus from my pen drive. Many malfunctions occurred in the system like I cannot access my devices and printers, my network in system tray do not show, I cannot change my default programs and when I try to associate default programs they do not get associate and I cannot install my HP printer which I could use previously with no problem. I have kaspersky 2012 internet security and it says my system is clean. I tried many things like clean boot, system restore
Where do you buy hardware for your colocation? Aside from Dell, who else is out there? You can just add companies you know of as a quick post, with contact information. These companies should specialize in servers, not home systems... They need to be professionals.

In November, Dell will roll out the full Latitude ON system, which will be built into the Latitude notebooks and also offered as a low-cost mini-PCI upgrade to models issued with the reader. What does a mini-PCI upgrade entail? Is that hardware or a downloadable software upgrade?
Recently my laptop became quite loud, rather noisy actually. I do not know what happened, because now the FAN is spinning all the time. If I boot up my system, the fan is already rotating very fast. I flashed my BIOS to the newest version (A14) already. I checked my hardware thru the Dell Diagnostic program and apparently everything is working functionally.
I have a Dell Vostro 1015, I need to install wireless drivers on it.While installation I get a message saying "No compatible hardware found.

I have tried it on both 64 and 32 bit windows 7
Dell Inspiron 1750, Windows Home Premium 7 x64 - no WiFi access through my Wind-stream 2 wire router. [router and modem combined] Other devices both Macbook and Dell laptop are still connecting through my router so I'm pretty sure it's in the DELL Inspiron. 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.

I'm having a problem with my Dell Vostro 3550 Core i5, completely shut down Windows, screen off completely, but the power light and the keyboard still light, until the battery is completely discharged. I think the reason is the OS I'm using (Windows 8), I have changed the operating system (win7) but the problem is not fixed, I checked the hardware it still works fine
I bought four Dell Inspiron 15 this black Friday from the Microsoft Store. All four of those have the exact same problem of 100% disk usage at the start up right out of the box. I don't want to return as I am a lifelong dell user. But If there is no solution of this problem then why the <profanity> dell sold these laptops? Here is what I have done to try and fix this problem: Used windows repair tools to check all hardware. All hardware came back okay/// Ran chkdsk /f on the drive //// Disabled windows indexing //// Turned power management to Maximum performance //// Downloaded and used the Dell tools to update all drivers //// Checked programs and removed all unnecessary programs //// Used MSCONFIG to remove certain programs from the startup and from running in the background //// Tried Microsoft Fix It to improve performance //// Nothing works.

I got myself a brand new pc, it has an asrock z68 pro3 motherboard and an i2500k proc. the screen is a dell u2311h the problem is i cannot get the resolution higher then 1280*1024. with 10.10 the monitor works perfectly, but the system crashes. so i want to use 10.04, which seems quite stable on my hardware.
I installed Debian 5.0.3 (Backport with .34 Kernel), because my server hardware (Dell PowerEdge R210) needs special firmware and drivers.However, the installation went quite smooth.I put the system on a RAID 1 Array with about 500 GB space.s I said the installation went well, however, it doesn't boot! No GRUB, nothing
so I am going to use my EPP to buy a secondary Studio 17, 24" monitor and an Inspiron Mini 9. 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....
My bb keeps scrolling up (if i us bbm, msn / ym) and in browser the cursor keeps pointing on the top of the page. it happens when the bb is sending/receiving data (the small arrows on the right top of the screen).

I have a late 2009 Macbook Unibody that get extremely hot. From using SMCFanControl it tells me it's at 80-90 degrees celcius which to me is extremely hot. The fans also do not kick in at all when it gets at this level. When using skype, it skyrockets over 100 degrees celcius which causes my computer to slow down. Is anyone else having this issue? Do you think it's a hardware malfunction?
about a year ago my e1705's video card memory had a error and I had colored stripes on the screen. I researched a little and found that I could upgrade my card to a xps 512mb card and so I did. Now a few days ago my screen went black and I freaked out thinking my video card died but a few seconds later everything was fine again. Today, the same thing happened although this time the black screen turned to a blue error screen saying "***Hardware Malfunction Call your hardware vendor for support NMI: Parity check/ memory parity error ***The system has haulted***" I ran the diagnostic and the graphics card memory is showing errors. I checked ebay and another card is $300. What options do I have? I like my laptop but I'm kind of tired of this problem especially if I buy another card and expect it to happen again.

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?
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.
I have a BB Curve 8320 on Orange UK. When I connect my device to either my work PC (Dell laptop Windows XP SP3) or my home PC (Sony Vaio Vista SP1) both show the error message ""USB Device not Recognized" and say that the USB device has malfunctioned? It seems to be working fine apart from this and connected to the PC's fine until about 10 days ago. I have tried reinstalling the Desktop Manager Software (and updated it) and I have performed several soft resets on my device; nothing seems to be working?
I had a chat recently with a Dell rep and he said that basically the only way to get any sort of warranty (in Canada) is to show definitive signs of malfunction on the GPU. Recently the left side of my computer has been incredibly hot, and annoying to lay my wrists on the palm rest areas (ironic, I know). Anyway he told me to do the FN + power button combination to boot up and it would run the diagnostic test to determine if anything was wrong .....
I recently installed windows 8.1 on my dell xps 15z everything works alright but the screen at times displays vertical lights. It gives the image of the screen malfunctioning and then it disappears.
I recently had a problem with reformatting a partition. It was solved by relocating the pagefile.sys. Now whenever I boot upon login it says the system has made a temp pagefile system. I try adjusting the size of the pagefile system to much more, less, or equal to amount of ram (4gb). Doesn't seem to solve it. dropbox has stopped working too; it seems like that malfunction may be related to the pagefilesys
