I installed a Startech PCI serial card in a slot in my Dell Optiplex 960 desktop running Windows 7 Professional 64-bit.   I downloaded the drive from the Starctech website but when I try to  install it, it says "installation is aborted".

I have installed Office 2016 on a new Dell laptop and Outlook is giving me a problem
Basically the Inbox is not updating, all other folders and contacts are updating even the Deleted folder updates, the Inbox shows the number of unread messages and that is how i know they are getting through, if i do a search of the Inbox I can see the emails that it finds based on the search.

The account is a Domain account from an Exchange Server 2010, Office 2016 Pro

The email account is 5 years old

The emails are being received on the old laptop, tablet and phone

I have checked View - filters, Started it in safe, deleted the OST file and reinstalled Office

The error showing in sync is:

Task 'Email removed for privacy' reported error (0x00040820) : 'Errors in background synchronization. In most cases, further information is available in a synchronization log in the Sync Issues folder.'

Hi there,
I have a dell server service tag 2CMX6S1 running Windows 2012 R2 which is not returning it's IdentifyingNumber, Name, UUID or other csproduct information.
I am using :
wmic csproduct get name,indentifyingnumber,uuid
however I get 'No instance(s) available'.
I have tried bios updating to the most recent and version prior and reset the bios and re-installing windows server all to no avail.
I would appreciate comment on how I might resolve this or if indeed it is unresolvable.
Thanks,

I have an issue on a Clients Dell XPS 13 laptop after a BIOS update was completed.  At startup now, the blue Bitlocker Recovery screen comes up every time and we have to input the long recovery key that luckily we were able to get.  
I have read some forums which suggests we go into Control Panel and disabled the Bitlocker function, but they have Windows 10 Home on there and it does not show up in the Control Panel.  Some posts suggest that Bitlokcer does not come on Windows 10 Home.

I have disabled the USB boot option in the BIOS and no luck.

Can anyone else suggest how to resolve this so it does not keep asking for the Bitlocker Key at every startup??

A person contacted us with an older Dell B3465dnf printer - the printer works fine but when they put a paper in the ADF, it says its Scanning but doesn't pull the paper thru.  Also if you put the original down on the glass, it will scan/copy but only a half of the page.  We looked over it in general but really didn't see anything?

Hi,

We've got multiple Windows 7 PCs across multiple un-related domains that are getting stuck at 'Starting Windows', and will refuse to reach the login screen.

After leaving these PCs around 30-40 minutes at 'starting Windows', the PCs will go into recovery/restore point mode and will prompt for action to be taken. If you try to initiate system restore, or a repair, both will fail.

You can boot into safe mode without issue, but if you open msconfig and modify the boot i.e. only loading base services etc. you will still get stuck on 'starting Windows' on the next boot.

If you boot into 'last known good configuration', you will be able to use the computer as per usual, but upon rebooting it, you will get stuck on the 'starting Windows' screen.

We have run multiple virus, malware, adware, and system scans, all saying everything looks fine.

SFC/scannow and chkdisk also report back that everything is fine.

Hello

Trying to achieve the above.  I see we need to use the dell command program.  

We have a deployment program that we can push out batch files or msi etc, so will use this.  

What's needed in order to change the settings remotely?  Can we use a command/batch file only, do we need the program installed on the machine?

With the HPs we had to push the HP install utility, copy edited config file local to the machine and run the command on the remote machine form the software we use.

The dell stuff looks like a PITA..

thanks

On an old Dell 2950 I noticed "I1912 SEL Full" on display. OS is 2008 R2 Standard
Through OpenManage (Hardware > Logs), the message is:

Wed Mar 02 12:33:26 2016      System event log (SEL) is full.

2 question:

1) the only way to clear event log is through BMC menu (reboot required), according to this URL?
https://www.dell.com/support/article/it/it/itchn1/sln132517/how-to-clear-the-esm-log-on-a-legacy-dell-poweredge-server?lang=en

2) few days ago I registered a disk hardware failure. I configured alert with "DellSMTPNotify" application.
Is it possible to I didn't receive an email for that failure, due to Event Log full?

Thankyou very much

I am trying to install  Dell Laserjet 5210n on our school network server so it can be shared across all clients. I have assigned a static IP address to the printer and I can ping it. When I try to install the drivers I downloaded from the Dell website I get the attached error.
I have tried installing as a network printer using the TCP/IP port and also as a local printer also using the TCP/IP port. Either way I get the same result.
The Server on the network is running Windows Server 2008R2 and all of our clients are Windows 7 Pro.  I did try to install it using a PCL driver found in Windows and I was able to print one test page but after that the printer went offline and will not come back on line even though I can ping still ping it.

Please Advise.

Thank you!

I have a Dell Inspiron computer.  I have forgotten the password and it is running windows 10  * did not create a emergency USB disk NOR another account to access the computer.  I am looking for a way to just access the machine again.  There is little that I need on the machine and I have tried  F8, F11 and f10 during the boot process to try and do a recovery process  -- nothing has worked.   How can I get back into my machine EVEN IF I lose my data.   I have looked for software to gain access ((but don't want to waste money without getting exactly what I need  --IF that is the answer then something that I can use on 7,8, and 10 would be great)).  Any help would be appreciated.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

I am running a Dell T110 ii server with a PERC S100 controller, in what I am told is RAID 5, I am remote from the site so I cant confirm that it is defiantly RAID 5

We had a problem a few days ago when I saw the following errors in Dells Open Manager

Disk medium error detected: Physical Disk 0:1 Controller 0, Connector 0
Redundancy lost: Virtual Disk 1 (Virtual Disk 1) Controller 0 (PERC S100)
There is an unrecoverable medium error detected on virtual disk: Virtual Disk 1 (Virtual Disk 1) Controller 0 (PERC S100)

Disk 0:2 was Offline, and the Virtual disk was showing Degraded

I set disk 0:2 as Hot spare and it started to Rebuild the Virtual drive, which failed after 7 or 8%

I now have all 3 disks online but the Virtual disk is showing as Failed, the only option it gives me is Delete, which I am hesitant of doing, any pointers on what to do next, I don't know the condition of the drives apart from they say they are online

MOST IMPORTANTLY
Disk 0:2 was offline but Disk 0:1 had the error?

I've got an interesting issue with just a few devices and PDQ Deploy.  Perhaps someone else has run into this issue and found a fix.  Support at Admin Arsenal was unable to help me despite their best efforts.  

I have several Dell Latitude 7275 laptops hooked to WD15 docks.  Out of about 15, four of them experience this issue:

When I go to Deploy a package, it will eventually timeout with a message, "Target computer unreachable" .  

I have to access the target manually and open the adapter properties and uncheck File and Printer Sharing. Close the properties. Re-open and recheck File and Printer Sharing.  

Now, I can relaunch the deployment and it works perfectly.  It will work for any subsequent deployments until the computer is restarted, then we are back to square one.

There is nothing different about these four devices as opposed to their 11 other brothers.  Latest Firmware, BIOS, and drivers all installed.  All running at least Win 10 build 1703.  All listed in DNS (both forward and reverse zones). None of the 30 OptiPlex desktops in my domain have this issue.

I'd appreciate any insights you might be able to share.
thanks!

The amount of bass on my computer needs to be cut in half. The voices are sometimes so bassy that they cannot be understood. Also, this same computer does not seem to give me the option of telling it that i am listening via headphones. It is defaulting on full range speakers.
computer: Dell M4800 Workstation / Laptop 64 bit
Opsys: Windows 10
Memory 8 gig
Sound card: Realtec (Net indicates that  I am using the latest driver)

Note: I am a patient in a Hospital that could delay me in responding in a normally timely manner. I cannot tell when I can be online due to a multitude of medical reasons. Please be patient if need be.

I just bought a new laptop, Dell Inspiron 15 7000, for my work. As I was testing everything, it was a physically working very well, so no complaints, however, when I tried to wirelessly connect to my server, it was giving me issues until I hardwired it. I was unable to ping any IP address (Local network or Google, Yahoo, etc.) and I notice that my virtual machines when run on this new laptop is doing the same thing no matter what OS (VMs running Ubuntu Server, Windows 10, Windows Server 2012, and CentOS)

Browsing through file explorer shows other PCs and servers connected, I can use Chrome, Firefox and IE to connect to a multitude of websites, however if I ping either the domain or the IP address... fails everytime.

Then I noticed that after I have installed Eve Online, it will not connect to the main server either, I ran all the port changes and fixes that I could possibly find online and everything fails.

This is a new issue that I have never experienced before, even as a network engineer, and I am completely flabbergasted at this. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi All,
I have a new Dell 3050 with 2 monitors. The Dell has integrated DP and HDMI ports for video out. The Monitors I have, have 1 DP connection each. For Monitor 1 I used a DP/DP connection and the monitor works - no problem
For Monitor 2, I used a HDMI/DP (DP on monitor side) but the computer doesn't recognize or ever know a monitor is connected.

I was told the the cable I have is a DP to HDMI and I should get a HDMI to DP or a Bi-directional DP/HDMI cable. Is there such a thing?
Any suggestions to make the dual monitors work short of a video card or USB/VGA adapter?
