Drivers/Hardware :: Dell Dimension E520 / Dual Core Running At One Core - No Native Resolution

Sep 10, 2015

I upgraded to Win 10 in late July, but lately realized maybe Microsoft might not be providing the updates to solve my current issues.

My computer is pretty old, and the hardware is the same as it came out of the box, other than attaching a spare hard drive. It is a Dell Dimension E520.

The processor is an Intel dual core e6300 @ 1.86 ghz, but Win 10 seems to only detect one core and is therefore only running at 1.86 ghz instead of the 3+ ghz I was expecting.

My monitor is a Samsung SyncMaster 940BW and my computer currently does not recognize it has a native resolution of 1440x900. I can only run 4:3 resolutions instead of the 16:10 resolutions I need.

I've already looked at the manufacturer's websites and they don't seem to support Win 10 drivers for these products.

Performance :: Task Manager Showing Intel Core I5-2500K Operating At 5.29GHz?

Nov 15, 2015

Since I skipped Windows 8, I didn't get to use its new task manager.

But now that I'm on 10, I'm heavily enjoying this AMAZING new task manager.

However, I just noticed (not sure how I didn't see this before) that Task Manager is showing that my i5-2500K is running at 5.29GHz! I do have it overclocked to 4.2GHz @ ~1.31 volts. Why this might be happening? I searched around a bit and I found that some other people have this problem with the i5-2500K and the Task Manager, but nobody really knows what it is.

Drivers :: Changing Resolution After Installing Drivers

Aug 11, 2015

I installed windows 10 using the iso option of media creation tool. I did a clean install of it. It worked fine till the time I noticed that the graphics were not installed. So I downloaded drivers for my nvidia 7025 nforce 630a (309.08-desktop-win8-win7-winvista-64bit-international-whql.exe). But when I tried to install it, after some time, the display went blank and i got an "Out Of Range error". I encountered this error in the past, so I tried to boot the system in "low-resolution mode" and then fix it. But Low Resolution mode gives me same error. Need installing the driver correctly, as the performance of the system is damn slow (as it is using microsoft's basic video driver).

Drivers/Hardware :: Dell Inspiron 7537 Won't Power On?

Jan 18, 2016

I've just done a clean install of W10 on my Dell Inspiron 7537 laptop. I turned off the laptop last night when the battery was about half discharged.

I tried turning on the laptop today after it had been off 18 hours and it was completely dead - there was no response to the power on button and no charging light despite the charger outputting the correct voltage.

I read online about removing the battery so I did this. I removed the battery, pressed the power button for 60s then plugged in the power lead and hey presto the laptop started! I then put the battery back in and started W10 fine. The battery showed 56% charge so the battery wasn't flat.

I can only think there was a poor battery connection which prevented the laptop starting and removing and replacing the battery cured this.

Drivers/Hardware :: DVD / CD Drive Not Recognizing Media On New Dell Laptop

Dec 5, 2015

Dell Inspiron 5000 series, brand new

Originally the DVD drive would not show at all in File Explorer, despite Device Manager recognising, drivers up to date, etc. Dell diagnostics reported various feedback ranging from perfectly ok (SupportAssist, on-line smart diagnostic quick test) to failing some tests (on-line optical drive tests) and requiring attention (sadly, the attention it suggested I use was a 'fix' tool on the Microsoft website that would not run on Windows 10 operating platform so I have not been able to persue further)

Things improved a little after downloading and installing all of the urgent and recommended Dell updates, plus installing all of the Windows updates. Now the laptop shows the drive in File Explorer, and occasionally media is recognised and even played. For example, inserting an audio CD into the drive immediately after booting up will run autoplay and the tracks are displayed as expected in File Explorer.

However, subsequent CDs (or any other media) are not recognised. The drive 'acts' like it should (led goes on, whirring sound made, etc) but nothing happens. File Explorer displays whatever the previous media contents were.

So for example, if I insert an audio CD with 10 tracks immediately after booting, the CD will autoplay and the 10 tracks will display in File Explorer. Everything seems fine. If I then eject this CD, and put in an audio CD with 5 tracks, File Explorer will continue to display the 10 tracks from the first CD. The new CD wont autoplay. Its basically not recognised.

This is quite frustrating because it means I have to reboot every time I want to change media.

Drivers/Hardware :: Audio Disabled After Upgrading In Dell Optiplex AIO

Sep 19, 2015

Since I upgrade to Windows 10 (coming from 8.1) in my friend's Dell Optiplex 3011 All-In-One computer, with built-in speakers, the audio has been disabled, and I see the Windows speaker icon is with an "x". In Windows 8.1, the audio was working normally, so it's not a hardware issue.

However, if I plug in an earphone, the audio output is enabled and the Windows speaker icon changes to normal one. I installed the latest version of Realtek HD Audio driver (R2.79), and restarted, but the audio continues disabled unless an earphone is connected.

I first upgraded to Windows 10 and installed the Realtek audio drivers. Then, I performed did a clean install and installed the Realtek audio driver again, but audio is still disabled. When I open the Realtek Audio Manager in Control Panel, only the microphone tab appears. When I plug an earphone, the speaker/earphone tab is visible as it should be, disappearing after I unplug it.

I reinstalled Windows 8.1 in his system hoping to have audio working again, but the problem persists. I've tried installing the Realtek HD Audio driver from Dell supporte page for my product (entering the service tag to be 100% sure), but no luck. Windows troubleshooting is useless as usual, only asking me to plug in an earphone, like I didn't know it. I even upgraded Dell BIOS/UEFI firmware to latest version (A07), but it didn't fix anything.

System: Dell Optiplex 3011 All-in-One
OS: Windows 10 Home Single Language
Realtek version: R.279

Apps :: Playing MKV Files Using Native Movies

Aug 18, 2015

I just noticed 2 major problems with playing MKV files using the native Movies & TV app in Windows 10 Pro x64 that I'm running.

1. I'm not sure if Windows 10 fully supports MKV files yet but audio from some MKV files couldn't be played with the Movies & TV app. The video plays fine but it's just muted.

2. Enabling subtitles using the built-in feature of the Movies & TV App causes a horrible lag and stutter of the whole MKV video.

Why Can't Start Native Apps While Having Account In Admin Group

Feb 5, 2016

I have a strange issue in Windows 10 Pro (Dutch). With my account (in Administrator group) I cannot start apps like 'Control panel', 'Paint', etc from the start menu. When I click just nothing happens: no window, no message, nothing. Only via desktop As Administrator works. Also apps like Bit Defender Security doesn't start automatically.

I tried to create a new account, but same issues. But, when I startup with the build-in Admin account (I enabled it temporarily) and switch to my own account (with Admin account open) everything works well! I expect that the issue is related to access controls or something.

My system: Intel Core i7-6700K; Asus Maximus VIII Ranger motherboard, Corsair Vengeance LPX Black 16GB DDR4-2666 CL16 kit, Geforce 980Ti, Samsung 950 Pro 256GB (NVMe m.2 SSD). Windows is installed from scratch, no update, on the 950 Pro SSD.

How To Disable Windows Media Player Native FLAC Support

Jul 29, 2015

Is there a way to disable Windows Media Player's new native FLAC support, so I can use external codecs such as LAV filters with it again, as well as 3rd party metadata plugins like WMP Plus?

When using the native FLAC support, basic metadata tags for flac files are not added to the library, such as the Year & Contributing Artist field - whereas WMP Plus imported those over without any problem... However they now refuse to work with WMP as it detects that WMP now supports it, so how can i turn that support off? I've disabled Windows Media Foundation but that's not made any difference for FLAC files, it's still playing those natively.

Networking :: Error Scripted Diagnostic Native Host Has Stopped Working

Sep 3, 2015

I've never seen this problem with the previous O.S., Windows 7, but Windows 10 is throwing me this error message approximately 70% of the time when I run the network troubleshooter...either from the Control Panel, or by right clicking on the task bar's connection icon.

Though Win10 is the first O.S. to give me this error, the Microsoft support forums indicate that it's been fairly annoying to Windows 7 users back to 2010. Also, Microsoft support employees just give vague general tips for trying to nail down the cause.

I'm only experiencing this in EDGE. Edge sometimes freezes on a webpage when I'm attempting to post a message to a forum, similar to what I'm doing now. I run the Network Troubleshooter and get the "Native Host Has Stopped..." error. I open a new Edge tab, come to this forum and try to do a search for the answer, but this forum's search function ignores my input. So, I opened IE-11, navigate to Win10 forum, and all works well.

Experienced the "Scripted Diagnostic Native Host has Stopped Working" error when running the network troubleshooter?

Drivers/Hardware :: CPU Running Extremely Hot

Feb 10, 2016

With Windows 10 showing up on more computers every day, I decided to take the leap and upgrade my operating system. I figured that I would need to know it in order to service my client's computers - however, doing so has provided me with a problem that I have been unable to solve.

I have seen many posts and "solutions" for laptops that have suddenly been running far hotter since upgrading to Win 10.

My situation is a little different, I am running a Dell Studio XPS 435T with the Core i7 920 with 12GB RAM, and HD5700 on the stock motherboard. The CPU is cooled by an aftermarket fan and heatsink (Arctic Freezer I believe). And yes, it is clear of dust bunnies.

When booting into Win 7 Ultimate my idle temp is 43C and at load gets to 65C however if I boot into Win 10 Pro my idle is 67C and at load easily jumps to 90C+.

I have also tried the "change CPU power" however dropping my CPU to 60% doesn't seem like a real solution to me..

Drivers/Hardware :: Audio Not Running?

Oct 9, 2015

I installed W10 on my laptop yesterday, a friend has problems with his copy of W10. Everything is fine for me, and he has now put W10 on again and all seems to working EXCEPT, he has not got a volume control icon in his taskbar - although sound IS working. I researched and told him about the wheeze of changing the text size in display - which has resolved that problem for many folk, but he found he could not move the cursor along the bar, and has also noticed that although the volume is set to 'on' where you select which icons appear in taskbar, there is a message saying 'audio service is not running'.

Drivers/Hardware :: CD / DVD Writer / BD Reader Not Recognized As Writer By Dell 8100?

Jan 4, 2016

I have a Dell 8100 XPS and when the hard drive went, I restored from an August backup (using Microsoft's Windows 10 backup) afetr replacing the drive. Unfortunately, I had a problem with the Ethernet adapter so eventually, I reinstalled Windows 10 fresh. The only major problem is that the machine recognizes the drive ( Liteon iHOS104) as a reader.

This is possibly because the 8100 does not officially support Windows 10 (according to Dell).

Is there any way to get it recognized as a writer?

No 1920x1280 Resolution?

Jul 29, 2015

So late last night I decided to upgrade expecting everything to work. Well I was in for a surprise when the default resolution is 1024x768 and my monitor is 1920x1280. The best part when I do think I have got it fixed the highest resolution is 1600x1200. I have tried my monitors size detection and refit options with no success, my monitor is a hannas-g hl269. Its not much of a difference in resolution but its causing me motion sickness when I tried playing games.
