Community Article Dell Inspiron 15-3521 will not recover — Micro Center Computers Computer Parts Custom PC Builder DIY/ Maker {$smarty.capture.menu} Activity Categories Discussions Computers Computer Parts Custom PC Builder DIY/ Maker Home › General Discussion Dell Inspiron 15-3521 will not recover swc65 ✭ August 2020 in General Discussion The laptop will not boot up.  I inserted USB recovery drive, powered on and hit F12 until I got o recovery option.  Drive Diagnostics indicated errors were found preventing recovery and indicated an attempt to back up data.  I am not concerned with data as it is saved on cloud.  Current screen says Recovery and Restore in large font, then Smart Repair Progress Summary then Analyzing the Drives with a status bar.  The status appear ~40% however has not progressed in at least an hour.  How long is too long to wait.  Are there any other alternatives to try and get a response.  Waiting on Tech Support hold for 10 minutes as of this post. I a previous attempt I tried to restore the disk to a previous  time and got message "Windows has detected file system corruption on OS(C:) You must check disk for errors."  I checked the disk and ran into similar issue.  I had a dialog box stating "Scanning and repairing"  I let it run for ~ hour with no progress beyond ~25% completion so I gave up and powered down. Was hoping to get a quote on services to consider taking into Micro Center or paying $99 to Dell for support for out of warranty.  Any response would be appreciated.  I was hoping to avoid taking into store just to get a quote on cost to troubleshoot. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Comments TSPhillipT admin August 2020 Hello @swc65 This laptop came with Windows 8.1, did you ever update to Windows 10?   For our service, we would start with a $39.99 diagnosis to check whether it's a hardware issue with the drive or if it's an issue with a corrupt Windows Installation.  You will then be contacted about what the diagnosis is and the cost for repair past the diagnosis.  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook swc65 ✭ August 2020 I do not believe it was updated to Windows 10. It’s my son’s so not totally sure.  I’ll plan to bring in for diagnosis.  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook swc65 ✭ August 2020 I did some additional work and ran Dell ePSA diagnostics. It identified the following error with Hard drive  I also did a check disk and results are poste below  so I think my hard drive is gone   I’m capable of replacing hard drive but not sure what to do with OS. Computer originally purchased with Win 8.1. But my son claims we upgraded to 10. Is there a way I can check that?  The OS on the ePSA indicated OS test passed but didn’t tell me what is was.  How can I determine what OS I had. Am I correct that the license is in the BIOS and will apply license when I successfully reload OS? i know how to make a bootable USB and have tried both Win 8.1 and Win10 before I found the EPSA diagnostics.  However I’m unsure of how the USB should be formatted NTSF or exFAT.  Do I try load both OS after I replace hard drive? And see which one works.     0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSTonyV admin August 2020 That error is a pretty clear indication the hard drive is about to go. The license would be digitally embedded in the BIOS, you are correct about that, and it should be detected automatically. We don't have to way to see if the license was previously upgraded, but if you can remember what the OS looked like, I could tell you if it was running on Windows 10 before. When you were on the main desktop screen and clicked the start button on the bottom-left corner, did it just open up a menu with a list of apps you could open, or did it take you to an entirely new window with a bunch of tiles for different apps? If it's the former, you were on Windows 10, if it's the latter, you were on 8.1.  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook swc65 ✭ August 2020 Thanks for your help. It’s my son’s computer so I can’t answer. I’ll run that by him.  If you’ll indulge a few more questions I’d appreciate it.  Current 4MB Ram Pic below.  Current HD pic below.  Processor 338-BCWJ : Intel Pentium processor 2127U (2M Cache, 1.9 GHz) Son uses for some games and Music scoring.  Dell Inspiron 15-312,~6 years old.  Question is what 1) HD would you recommend I go back in with? 2) Does processor support more RAM?  I have another slot open. Would that change performance much?   0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSTonyV admin August 2020 That's a normal  2.5" SATA drive so any 2.5" SATA HDD or SSD would work. Personally I'd recommend getting an SSD since that'll be a big performance boost for the system and make it generally run a lot faster.  More RAM can help if you're currently maxing out your RAM usage. If you're only at 4GB currently, I'd say it'd be worth it to upgrade to 8GB since 4GB is pretty limited even for normal use because of how RAM hungry modern web browsers can be at times.  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook swc65 ✭ August 2020 Great!  Thanks for quick response. Any particular brand of SSD to avoid?   0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook swc65 ✭ August 2020 Oh and one more question, when formatting USB do I pick NTSF or eXFAT?  When making bootable USB drive.  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSTonyV admin August 2020 edited August 2020 When making a bootable USB drive it should automatically reformat itself anyway but if it asks you to pick one choose NTFS since that's the native Windows filesystem.  As for the SSD, I'm not aware of any SSDs that are known to be particularly bad. I would look at Samsung, Inland and Crucial brand SSDs.  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook swc65 ✭ August 2020 Thank you so much. I formatted USB NTFS initially as that was default but then read it should be FAT32. My only other choice was exFAT.  Even with corrupt HD should I be able to boot up to a properly formatted USB drive? 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSTonyV admin August 2020 Yes, if you're booting directly to a USB then the HDD is not involved at all.  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook swc65 ✭ August 2020 Ok thanks. I’ll try again because I never got windows to to boot. Since I don’t know for sure which OS then I’ll try both.  Anything on Set up I should be aware on BIOS boot mode when attempting to to boot to USB?  Legacy Boot Mode or UEFI? 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSTonyV admin August 2020 You'll want to be set to UEFI mode, otherwise just make sure that you set the USB as your primary boot device instead of the HDD.  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook swc65 ✭ August 2020 Got it 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Categories 7K All Categories 1K The Blog 34 What's Trending 167 How to & Technical Guides 11 Computer Hardware 119 Software 3 Home Office 6 Networking Audio/Visual 2 Home Automation 16 3D Printers 10 Maker 16 PC Build Guides 96 Reviews & Buying Guides 34 Build Showcase 17 Contests 39 Past Contests 1K The Community 1.7K General Discussion 83 New Members 128 Consumer Tech 42 Prebuilt PCs and Laptops 78 Software 4 Audio/Visual 13 Networking & Security 1 Home Automation 2 Digital Photography 3 Content Creators 22 Hobby Boards & Projects 26 3D Printing 53 Retro Arcade/Gaming 86 All Other Tech 1.3K Store Information and Policy 51 Off Topic 6 Community Ideas & Feedback 113 Your Completed Builds 2.7K Build-Your-Own PC 1.7K Help Choosing Parts 227 Graphics Cards 172 CPUs, Memory, and Motherboards 62 Cases and Power Supplies 19 Air and Liquid Cooling 16 Monitors and Displays 30 Peripherals 10 All Other Parts 23 Featured Categories We love seeing what our customers build Submit photos and a description of your PC to our build showcase Submit Now Looking for a little inspiration?

I downloaded the specs for my laptop, nothing with the word "fan" in it. I called their support, person disconnected the call. I searched their tech support--no part number for a fan. The laptop is out of warranty by a couple weeks and Dell refuses to replace it. I hate taking apart laptops and only want to do it once--when I actually replace the fan. Anyone know how to find out the part number? I want to get the correct fan. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Comments TSTonyV admin July 2020 When you searched for Dell's part number, did you go to their website and try looking it up by the service tag? https://www.dell.com/en-us/shop/partsforyourdell/index?~ck=mn I'd start there, if you haven't.  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Ladybugf8 ✭ July 2020 That was the first thing I did. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSTonyV admin July 2020 If Dell won't provide the part information, I'm not sure there's a better way to figure out what fan is in a system than just Googling it, or opening up the computer and checking the part number on the unit itself. Our service desk could verify the correct parts with Dell if you were to bring it in to us for repair, but it sounds like you want to do it yourself.  I tried to find some information online but "Inspiron 3500" doesn't appear to be a model I can find information on, I found information for Latitude 3500 or Vostro 3500 instead. Are you sure this is an Inspiron model? If you private message me your service tag I can double check.  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Categories 7K All Categories 1K The Blog 35 What's Trending 167 How to & Technical Guides 11 Computer Hardware 119 Software 3 Home Office 6 Networking Audio/Visual 2 Home Automation 16 3D Printers 10 Maker 16 PC Build Guides 96 Reviews & Buying Guides 34 Build Showcase 17 Contests 39 Past Contests 1K The Community 1.7K General Discussion 83 New Members 128 Consumer Tech 42 Prebuilt PCs and Laptops 78 Software 4 Audio/Visual 13 Networking & Security 1 Home Automation 2 Digital Photography 3 Content Creators 22 Hobby Boards & Projects 26 3D Printing 53 Retro Arcade/Gaming 86 All Other Tech 1.3K Store Information and Policy 51 Off Topic 6 Community Ideas & Feedback 113 Your Completed Builds 2.7K Build-Your-Own PC 1.7K Help Choosing Parts 227 Graphics Cards 172 CPUs, Memory, and Motherboards 62 Cases and Power Supplies 19 Air and Liquid Cooling 16 Monitors and Displays 30 Peripherals 10 All Other Parts 23 Featured Categories We love seeing what our customers build Submit photos and a description of your PC to our build showcase Submit Now Looking for a little inspiration?

I left a message here on Friday, but did not get an answer. I need to connect an older model Dell monitor with the three rows of prongs to my HP Elitebook which only has an HDMI and two USB ports. Do you have an adapter that works for this? 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Best Answer TSMikeW admin May 2020 Accepted Answer Three rows could be DVI or VGA. VGA is three rows of five. The port is generally color coded blue. DVI is generally color coded white. There would be on one side it'll have a dash or a blade pin, possibly with four pins around that if it's DVI-I.  Either way it's going to be an HDMI to DVI or VGA adapter which we do carry. Please specify which one you have or upload a picture and we'll link you to the exact product. 5 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Categories 7K All Categories 1K The Blog 34 What's Trending 167 How to & Technical Guides 11 Computer Hardware 119 Software 3 Home Office 6 Networking Audio/Visual 2 Home Automation 16 3D Printers 10 Maker 16 PC Build Guides 96 Reviews & Buying Guides 34 Build Showcase 17 Contests 39 Past Contests 1K The Community 1.7K General Discussion 83 New Members 128 Consumer Tech 42 Prebuilt PCs and Laptops 78 Software 4 Audio/Visual 13 Networking & Security 1 Home Automation 2 Digital Photography 3 Content Creators 22 Hobby Boards & Projects 26 3D Printing 53 Retro Arcade/Gaming 86 All Other Tech 1.3K Store Information and Policy 51 Off Topic 6 Community Ideas & Feedback 113 Your Completed Builds 2.7K Build-Your-Own PC 1.7K Help Choosing Parts 227 Graphics Cards 172 CPUs, Memory, and Motherboards 62 Cases and Power Supplies 19 Air and Liquid Cooling 16 Monitors and Displays 30 Peripherals 10 All Other Parts 23 Featured Categories We love seeing what our customers build Submit photos and a description of your PC to our build showcase Submit Now Looking for a little inspiration?

The ProSupport you purchase from us would register with Dell automatically, however, it can take a few days for this to be updated in their system. You can also verify the service tag on the laptop itself to make sure it matches the one on the receipt.  If it has already been a few days and it is still not showing the accurate warranty info, then go ahead and send me the reference number in a DM, I will be happy to help you. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook saturnotaku ✭ January 4 Hi Joseph, I received an email from Dell confirming that the ProSupport coverage for the laptop has been activated. Like I said I'm used to Apple products where it shows on the receipt, and coverage activates immediately. Guess I needed to exercise a little more patience.  Appreciate the reply all the same.  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook LandShark admin January 4 Glad to hear that the warranty information was activated. Sometimes Dell does take a little time to process this coverage activation. Please don't hesitate to reach out to us if you have any other concerns or questions! 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Categories 7K All Categories 1K The Blog 35 What's Trending 167 How to & Technical Guides 11 Computer Hardware 119 Software 3 Home Office 6 Networking Audio/Visual 2 Home Automation 16 3D Printers 10 Maker 16 PC Build Guides 96 Reviews & Buying Guides 34 Build Showcase 17 Contests 39 Past Contests 1K The Community 1.7K General Discussion 83 New Members 128 Consumer Tech 42 Prebuilt PCs and Laptops 78 Software 4 Audio/Visual 13 Networking & Security 1 Home Automation 2 Digital Photography 3 Content Creators 22 Hobby Boards & Projects 26 3D Printing 53 Retro Arcade/Gaming 86 All Other Tech 1.3K Store Information and Policy 51 Off Topic 6 Community Ideas & Feedback 113 Your Completed Builds 2.7K Build-Your-Own PC 1.7K Help Choosing Parts 227 Graphics Cards 172 CPUs, Memory, and Motherboards 62 Cases and Power Supplies 19 Air and Liquid Cooling 16 Monitors and Displays 30 Peripherals 10 All Other Parts 23 Featured Categories We love seeing what our customers build Submit photos and a description of your PC to our build showcase Submit Now Looking for a little inspiration?

NOTE: While this model is no longer sold by Micro Center or the manufacturer, this information may still be useful to those using this model of computer. Here is how to do this: First, locate the FN (Function) key. It is located at the bottom left corner of the keyboard to the right of the CTRL (Control) key. Notice that the FN key is orange. Now take a look at the top row of keys on the keyboard there is a row of keys starting with the letter F (F1, F2, F3, F4...) on each of these F keys there is an orange icon. The FN key allows you to use those orange icons. In this instance, we want to enable or disable the touchpad if you notice on the F3 key there is a picture of a touchpad with an X through it. This will allow you to enable or disable your touchpad. First press and hold the FN key and then press the F3 key at the same time. Notice at the top of your touchpad an orange light came on this means your touchpad is disabled. If you press FN and F3 at the same time again the light above the touchpad will turn off meaning the touchpad is now enabled. © Vanilla Foundation Theme 2021 Powered By Vanilla Community Article What does refurbished mean? - Micro Center Computers Computer Parts Custom PC Builder DIY/ Maker {$smarty.capture.menu} Activity Categories Discussions Computers Computer Parts Custom PC Builder DIY/ Maker What does refurbished mean? - Micro Center What what do Certified Refurbished, Remanufactured, and Off Lease Refurbished mean? Certified Refurbished This product has been refurbished to original factory specifications or better by the original manufacturer or their designated manufacturing facility.  The product is fully tested by component. Any electronic hardware not passing diagnostic testing is replaced. Any case, screen, or other external components of the product are inspected for imperfections, and defects are repaired or replaced to meet or exceed the original specifications; some manufacturers will allow minor cosmetic blemishes that do not affect device performance or enjoyment. Consumable components like batteries must meet a highly acceptable standard or are replaced with new. The product must run through and pass normal manufacturer testing before being repackaged for sale. Certified Refurbished products come fully backed with a limited warranty that is typically backed by the original manufacturer and can also be promptly facilitated at the Micro Center Store. *Apple, HP, Dell, and others use the description Certified Refurbished *Similar descriptions of Certified Refurbished might include Certified Pre-Owned (Samsung) Remanufactured This product has been remanufactured to factory specifications by a reputable repair company. It is NOT just a used product that has been cleaned up and called refurbished; this product will have all the form, fit and function of a like new product. The product is disassembled and fully tested by component. Any electronic hardware not passing diagnostic testing is replaced. Any case, screen, or other external components of the product are inspected for imperfections, and defects are repaired or replaced to meet or exceed the original manufacturer specifications. Consumable components like batteries must meet a highly acceptable standard or are replaced with new. The product is reassembled and must run through and pass normal manufacturer testing before being repackaged for sale. Remanufactured products come fully backed with a limited warranty that is promptly facilitated at the Micro Center Store. Off Lease Refurbished Off lease refurbished products typically refer to a product that has been used for a period of time, often in a business or educational environment, but still has useful life remaining. An off-lease product typically goes through general testing to make sure that it works before it is offered for resale but is not necessarily restored to a specific like-new condition. Off lease refurbished products may have some cosmetic blemishes due to normal use, and while they come with all components necessary to function as intended, the components may not exactly match the original manufacturer specification of that model. One benefit with off lease refurbished products is they offer potentially the most significant savings compared to refurbished, remanufactured, or similar brand-new product. Off lease refurbished products are backed with a limited warranty that is promptly facilitated at the Micro Center Store. © Vanilla Foundation Theme 2021 Powered By Vanilla Community Article Build of the Week: 8/7 - 8/13 — Micro Center Computers Computer Parts Custom PC Builder DIY/ Maker {$smarty.capture.menu} Activity Categories Discussions Computers Computer Parts Custom PC Builder DIY/ Maker Home › Build Showcase Build of the Week: 8/7 - 8/13 SeanM admin August 13 edited September 3 in Build Showcase Every week, we choose some of our favorite builds submitted to our Build Showcase, with one very talented builder getting highlighted as our Community Build of the Week and also getting an exclusive Micro Center T-Shirt!

I had a Samsung 4k 28" display and decided to go bigger with an AOC 34" Curved (Model CU34G2X), but the issue I have is that the image is not as sharp as my previous display. I have replaced the cable from HDMI to a USBC to DisplayPort and the issue still exists. The image is just not clear and sharp, if I do not resolve this issue I will have to return the display 😞 The first image is the new display, the second is my old monitor. Does anyone recommend anything to make it work as it should? 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Comments Ian admin November 2 Greetings, screenshots of what's displayed on your monitor wouldn't show us any difference unfortunately. It is possible the newer monitor's panel is not as high quality as your other monitor's. You can look at reviews or other user's calibrations/settings online such as those found at https://pcmonitors.info/reviews/aoc-cu34g2x/ to see if that may help out with the quality. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Categories 7K All Categories 1K The Blog 35 What's Trending 167 How to & Technical Guides 11 Computer Hardware 119 Software 3 Home Office 6 Networking Audio/Visual 2 Home Automation 16 3D Printers 10 Maker 16 PC Build Guides 96 Reviews & Buying Guides 34 Build Showcase 17 Contests 39 Past Contests 1K The Community 1.7K General Discussion 83 New Members 128 Consumer Tech 42 Prebuilt PCs and Laptops 78 Software 4 Audio/Visual 13 Networking & Security 1 Home Automation 2 Digital Photography 3 Content Creators 22 Hobby Boards & Projects 26 3D Printing 53 Retro Arcade/Gaming 86 All Other Tech 1.3K Store Information and Policy 51 Off Topic 6 Community Ideas & Feedback 113 Your Completed Builds 2.7K Build-Your-Own PC 1.7K Help Choosing Parts 227 Graphics Cards 172 CPUs, Memory, and Motherboards 62 Cases and Power Supplies 19 Air and Liquid Cooling 16 Monitors and Displays 30 Peripherals 10 All Other Parts 23 Featured Categories We love seeing what our customers build Submit photos and a description of your PC to our build showcase Submit Now Looking for a little inspiration?

Yes you can change the hard drive in this. A 2.5" 7200rpm drive is a tough find. As seeing the laptop already has a 5400rpm drive, if you're looking for an upgrade in storage and speed, I'd suggest looking at a 1 TB 2.5" SSD for just a few dollars more than a standard 1TB 5400RPM drive. Something such as https://www.microcenter.com/product/508183/inland-professional-1tb-ssd-3d-nand-sata-iii-6gb-s-25-internal-solid-state-drive will work great with your laptop.

Is it possible to replace the screen with another screen that isn't the one it was originally manufactured to be used with? 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Comments TSTDavey admin December 2020 @Gus I'm not sure another screen will solve your issue. For a Dell, those systems could function with an aftermarket LCD screen that is designed for the Inspiron 3593. But those screens would be designed for the Inspiron 3593 and to work with it; so the screen would function the same way the current Inspiron 3593 screen works. You could get an external web cam and plug it into the Dell's USB port and have the webcam to the side of the laptop for better video chat.

The monitor fires up beautifully with the work laptop - an HP ZBook Studio G5 running Windows 10 Pro. When I connect it to my home desktop - a Dell G5 5090 running Windows 11 - the monitor can't/won't make a connection. The logo shows up, it briefly says "No Signal", then it goes blank. As I understand it, I need a Thunderbolt port on the Dell desktop. Any recommendations on good PCIe cards for this? I'm not looking for most expensive top-of-the-line, just something to fit this use case. Thanks in advance! 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Answers TSKevinG admin November 15 Good afternoon @rmissey I do apologize you are having issues with the dell computer. Are you able to test the system with a different monitor to verify that the issue is with the system. Also was this dell system purchased from micro center? 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook magarity ✭ November 16 No, no, it is not a case of having trouble with the Dell. The external monitor is a "Thunderbolt" type which apparently the Dell does not have. Maybe it only has the basic USB-C which is confusing because the plug is the same but not the full functionality. Amazon has listings for Thunderbolt PCIe cards that are not graphics cards but your Dell would need to have CPU based graphics in it which looks like it does if it has Intel CPU. One of those would probably work but you should get the details on any particular model to make sure. 1 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook rmissey ✭ November 17 https://community.microcenter.com/discussion/comment/37390#Comment_37390 Magarity's correct - no issues with the Dell desktop, except that it doesn't have built-in Thunderbolt capability. I ordered an Asus ThunderboltEX 4 online & installed it. I didn't have any luck with that, but Asus support wasn't helpful in figuring out why. Is there any resource I can look at that will show me PCIe Thunderbolt cards that will work with my desktop system to support this monitor? I primarily bought it as an extra monitor for a laptop, but would love to use it on the desktop too. If it comes down to not being able to use it on the desktop, bummer, but not a huge deal. Thanks! 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook magarity ✭ November 18 There is probably a Reddit about Thunderbolt but it's a bit rare of a topic for this forum. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Categories 7K All Categories 1K The Blog 34 What's Trending 167 How to & Technical Guides 11 Computer Hardware 119 Software 3 Home Office 6 Networking Audio/Visual 2 Home Automation 16 3D Printers 10 Maker 16 PC Build Guides 96 Reviews & Buying Guides 34 Build Showcase 17 Contests 39 Past Contests 1K The Community 1.7K General Discussion 83 New Members 128 Consumer Tech 42 Prebuilt PCs and Laptops 78 Software 4 Audio/Visual 13 Networking & Security 1 Home Automation 2 Digital Photography 3 Content Creators 22 Hobby Boards & Projects 26 3D Printing 53 Retro Arcade/Gaming 86 All Other Tech 1.3K Store Information and Policy 51 Off Topic 6 Community Ideas & Feedback 113 Your Completed Builds 2.7K Build-Your-Own PC 1.7K Help Choosing Parts 227 Graphics Cards 172 CPUs, Memory, and Motherboards 62 Cases and Power Supplies 19 Air and Liquid Cooling 16 Monitors and Displays 30 Peripherals 10 All Other Parts 23 Featured Categories We love seeing what our customers build Submit photos and a description of your PC to our build showcase Submit Now Looking for a little inspiration?

It has been a very long time since I was last down to St. Davids PA and am planning to travel back down to purchase everything based on the answer(s) to this post- some time this week, most likely. My current system is a Gateway FX6803-35. This is a dual channel Core i7, running Windows 7 (64) Ultimate. I would prefer to select and install mid-to-high speed motherboard and CPU, have a good graphics arrangement with reasonable speed, (video editing, some gaming but nothing that would classify me as a cutting-edge gamer,) that supports at least two monitors. I really want to run through HDMI as this is what my monitors and larger flat screens have. While I am not opposed to a complete off-the-shelf option, I was screwed by Gateway the first and last time I purchased- because they used a defective sound setup that was patched- and every time Microsoft did an update, it completely hosed the install, and is the reason I now have a total of four 1.5 TB drives... because it was the fastest option to get back up and running at the time. So a full OTS system will be a hard sell, but I would consider it for the right configuration. I would like to keep: (3x) SATA HDDs, a Blu-Ray drive, my CD/DVD drive, and my power supply, if possible. I am a HUGE interconnection geek. I run a Nostromo gaming pad, a VisTablet pen input pad, a Steinway music interface, a USB ergo keyboard, USB and wireless gaming mice, and often utilize a serial port adapter (USB) to run an external Shortwave radio that I wrote an application to control. I create digital music, process digital video, and do a ton of photo editing- using Adobe Creative Master Suite CS5. (Adobe "assured" me that I could reinstall their package on this new system... holding breath with a smirk...) I am looking for recommendations. (Is PowerSpec a store brand? If so I would definitely reconsider my hesitation to buy an Off-The-Shelf / pre-built system. I really trust your company, and that is understated to save space here...) I am not dead-set against anything, but I am a pragmatic person who isn't afraid to put money where it makes the most significant improvement, and hesitate spending it just to have "the best available." The kind of person who will drive a vehicle because it still goes, not because it looks good. The current Gateway : 2.8 GHz core duo, *9 GB DDR3*, *Radeon Graphics CARD, I think! w/1024 MB*, Windows 7 Ultimate (will install Win 10, unless I could port all my apps to Linux and break out of the MS racket,) DDR3 SDRAM, Serial ATA HDDs (room for 3 HDD and two optical drives.), DVD +R and Blu-Ray. I apologize that this is so wordy, AND that it is likely I left out some key information. I have always built my own systems, but stopped 10 years ago... and have been paying for it ever since. I lost track of the changes in technology along the way. Heck... the online source I used to buy from doesn't even exist anymore LOL! Thanks in advance for any advice you can offer! I am excited to take a trip back down to Philly... 20 years ago this was a destination for me and a few friends to take a road trip! -"Savage223" 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Comments Savage223 ✭ April 11 edited April 11 EEsh... I apologize... my didn't work for the content on what I think I need. Note that I do not know what my form factor is, and the information i've been able to find online is limited. I also want to keep my case, so that's why I want to know. I would like to add 32GB of fast system memory, possibly 64. I would consider both re-using or replacing my current graphics card. Stupid, but I THINK this was a discreet card instead of an on-board/on-chip graphics system... I don't have the computer where I am right now to look. I think I should be in the Core i5 to Core i7 CPU category, and am perfectly fine considering AMD if it is thought they are just as good. I'd like a decent cache but have no clue if a high cache is actually utilized optimally (if it is worth the extra dough,) or even if my apps can utilize the added capacity in a way that makes the extra expenditure worth my while. I prefer USB 3.0, if it is actually backwards compatible, and really only need 1-2 USB C connections. I prefer the full-sized port, because I have only a GoPro and a phone that use USB-C. Forgive me for the early omission. I'll be glad to answer as need be. Thanks again! 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSTDavey admin April 11 Hello @Savage223 and thanks for posting on the Microcenter Community Forum. If you are wanting to upgrade your Gateway to a video editing and gaming pc, we'd recommend to invest in a pre-built pc that already has the parts for this type of computing. There's not much benefit in upgrading older PCs to be newer systems. At the point, a re-build PC from scratch is needed. May as well just go with a pre-built system that already has everything you need and works. If you can share what your budget is for a PC, we'll can inform you of some pre-built system to look at. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Savage223 ✭ April 11 Thanks for the quick reply! I expect to pay around $1000. If will go higher, but would want to see a fast primary drive- likely a SSD that would be sized large enough to run the OS paging and graphics caches; a fast i7 class CPU; 64gb of fast ram minimum; an optical drive, (Blu-Ray is not necessary in the new system,) the HDMI and USB I need; built-in WiFI and an included external antenna (if possible, though I can easily run CAT5 to it,) and a decent sound card that supports 5.1 surround sound at minimum. This may be totally unreasonable at my desired high point of $1500. Note that I do not need "extreme gamer" level graphics; I am more interested in running video that is, at most, the 4k produced by GoPro and Sony action video cameras. I use Adobe Premier for video editing, and I expect some lag in processing times, but this is consumer level versus semi-professional video production. I hope this makes sense... :) 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSTDavey admin April 11 @Savage223 what MC store are you near? $1500 will get you the 64gb of RAM, GPU and a fast processor. We can look up the computer at your store. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Savage223 ✭ April 11 St. David's, PA - Just outside of Philadelphia. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSTDavey admin April 11 @Savage223 take a look at the link below. Take a look at the Powerspec G164 sku# 210286. It has 16gig of ram which is a great start for video editing and gaming. You can add more memory later up to 64 gigs or more. It has a RX 5500 XT which is a great card, can do 4k with a display port cable and 4K monitor, if you have one. Also look at the Dell XPS 8940 sku# 150383. Good card and 16 gigs of memory. And last, the Powerspec G508 sku# 251918 has 16 gb of RAM, RTX 3060 GPU (one of the best graphic card on the market), with a Ryzen 5 5600x CPU. This would be the recommended machine to go with based on the current St. Davids inventory as of today.

(I could only take a quick look for the moment.) I run dual HDMI based monitors, and none have more than one port. I want to maintain an optical drive, because I have a lot of wedding photos and other things archived on discs. I want to be able to add at least one separate HDD to the system, and I actually have three that have very low hours and test good. It doesn't look like these (cases, at least,) will accept more than 1 drive, if even that. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Ian admin April 12 To hook up multiple HDMI monitors (if it only has one port), you'd need a DisplayPort to HDMI adapter/converter cable. For a DVD drive, you'd need an external option for this PC (and most PCs these days) - Any of these would connect via USB and work: https://www.microcenter.com/search/search_results.aspx?N=4294966941 Which specific system / model were you looking at in regards to adding extra hard drives? 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Savage223 ✭ April 14 I actually like all three of these 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Ian admin April 15 https://community.microcenter.com/discussion/comment/31133#Comment_31133 Hard to tell from the pictures but it looks like the Dell, SKU 150383 has maybe 1 slot for an additional drive at the top right. The G509 SKU 251918 and G164 21028 both have 1 internal 2.5" bay as they share the same case. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Savage223 ✭ April 17 I chose the G707! More than I planned on spending, but for the reasons follow after a quick question: What is the BEST way to create a baseline recovery "disc"? Of course, there is no optical drive for "disc," and I used a dedicated thumb drive for my HP Laptop for this purpose. But this is Win10 and a pre-built system- so what is your recommendation for a recovery disc that allows me to re-install the pre-installed Win10 software? At what other points would you recommend making a baseline recovery disc, or is there a better way to capture significant configuration events, such as installation of all my hardware, installation of larger apps like Adobe Suite, and that kind of thing? Do you just keep verifying everything works after every significant change or set of changes? What do you recommend? I chose the G707 over the others because: 2 available SATA ports on the board. (Maybe no room, but at least I can connect a HDD for file transfer purposes, even if temporarily.) ATX vs MicroATX (better power management) based on what I read beforehand on a separate site. Twice the installed RAM This is just the short list. I have to try to fire it up today, very excited!
