  • For questions about Dell hardware you need to go to the appropriate Dell Community Forum found @ http://en.community.dell.com/

    Your question is a hardware specific question.  It is not a generic Windows 7 question and Dell has sole responsibility for support of their hardware.

    Have you read your user manual?  Information on how to use specific features on a laptop are normally addressed in the user manual.


    Please remember to click “Mark as Answer” on the post that helps you, and to click “Unmark as Answer” if a marked post does not actually answer your question. This can be beneficial to other community members reading the thread. ”

    dell is horrible at preventing users from upgrading windows, its so bad, I will never buy one of their machines

    hp is somewhat less problematic, slightly


    Corsair Carbide 300R with TX850V2
    Asus M5A99FX PRO R2.0 CFX/SLI
    AMD Phenom II 965 C3 Black Edition @ 4.0 GHz
    G.SKILL RipjawsX DDR3-2133 8 GB
    EVGA GTX 660 Ti FTW Signature 2 (GK104 Kepler)
    Asus PA238QR IPS LED HDMI DP 1080p
    ST2000DM001 & Windows 8.1 Professional x64
    Microsoft Wireless Desktop 2000 & Wacom Bamboo CHT470M

    Place your rig specifics into your signature like I have, makes it 100x easier to understand!
