Inspiron E1505 RAM upgrade
I have an E1505, need to do a memory upgrade, and everywhere I look it says that 2 GB is max. Is this correct? I have Win 7 Pro on it, and it works pretty well, but I just installed the cheapest Dragon EasySpeaking, and it looks like it will run better with more RAM (I think I have 1 GB now). I'd like to try 4 G... 1 Aug 2010 11:34
Dell 1564 new install
Some time ago I tried to swap out a hard drive that had a XP install from a dell 1405 into this dell 1564. It booted up to a point and stopped. Does anyone know exactly why and how to make it work? When it stopped, I think it stopped prior to the OS. Is there a bios setting that needs changing? Further... 29 Jul 2010 12:57
need to replace battery- do I need to write down everything in sys. setup?
Gee, my 8 year old Dell is finally losing its battery. I now get a warning when booting up- (forgot to write it down exactly) warning about battery failure.

Latitude On Reader?
This is a free option on the system I am thinking of getting for my son. In order to get OS media with the system I am ordering it with the XP downgrade --- which means XP will be installed but we will get the Win 7 DVD.

64-Bit Win 7? Pitfalls?
I am thinking of getting a Dell Latitude 6510 for my son's college computer. Would there be any serious downside to buying a student version of Win 7 64 bit? Are drives a problem with the 64 bit OSs? Would I be able to get the needed post install drivers from Dell? Would it be a problem for printer driver... 29 Jul 2010 15:10
Windows Updates to Avoid (with Dell systems or otherwise)
I reinstalled Windows XP Pro with SP3 (Dell Edition) on the first of four refurb Dimension 8300's I am selling. Then I went to Windows update to apply the many megabytes of updates. I chose not to un-check IE 8 from among the 70+ initial updates. I also selected Windows Updates' version of the driver for an ... 28 Jul 2010 15:08
