    Hallmark Card Studio - Will Not Connect To The Internet

    Thanks so much. I got through to that Tech Support Number and they advised me the reason for the problem is that they are upgrading their server. Until the server is upgraded ( and they have no idea how long that will be) the product can't be used. How crazy is this? I mean really? Thousands of...

    Hallmark Card Studio - Will Not Connect To The Internet

    I know this is probably a shot in the dark, but I just purchased Hallmark Card Studio Deluxe which will not connect to the internet to use. Their is nothing wrong with my internet (I have fiber Optic Service). I tried the software on two machines - one with Windows 10 and one with Windows 7 -...

    Solved Power Supply Upgrade For Dell Inspiron 3880

    This is the information I got from my source at Dell: "Well, unless you printed out the info on the Outlet page when you ordered this PC, that says it has a 260W PSU, you're out of luck. You can still buy the larger PSU from Dell Spare Parts... Unfortunately, it's a proprietary PSU design so...

    Solved Power Supply Upgrade For Dell Inspiron 3880

    Well, after this experience, you can bet I'll be sticking with my Optiplex 5040 and 9020. They can keep the new technology I probably won't have a use for anyway - I'm not that impressed.

    Solved Power Supply Upgrade For Dell Inspiron 3880

    Let me just add, so theirs no miss-understanding, The Inspiron 3880 is a good machine for the price (like zx10guy I believe said) "for what it was made for", and I'm learning about the newer technology that I wanted. So, I have no complaints at that issue.

    Solved Power Supply Upgrade For Dell Inspiron 3880

    The computers I refurbish are Dells, mostly the older business Optiplex machines. I'm retired and don't get a chance to expience some of the new technologies like the 10th generation CPU's, M.2 SSD, etc. That's why I purchased the less expensive Inspiron. I've built many systems and I suppose I...

    Solved Power Supply Upgrade For Dell Inspiron 3880

    I just thought when you buy something you should get what you pay for. If I was buying a new car with pin striping from the factory and it came in without it , I'd ask why - even if the pin striping didn't really matter. Guess that's old thinking.

    Solved Power Supply Upgrade For Dell Inspiron 3880

    Okay, lets get this straight (my error) - yes, I bought this system through the outlet and it noted a 260 Watt power supply - that's why I asked on this post if anyone had experienced this. I couldn't really care less about the pci-e slot - I already discussed why I mentioned it. Lets get...

    Solved Power Supply Upgrade For Dell Inspiron 3880

    Sorry about the confusion, the video card was mentioned only to inquire why you would include a motherboard with grahpic card expansion that (because of the other factors) you can't expand with a better graphics card.

    Solved Power Supply Upgrade For Dell Inspiron 3880

    So, I guess what your implying is that if Dell can't afford to care about us unimportant customers we should look elsewhere. I guess that's why Apple is doing so well. Again, I only want what I was suppose to get.

    Solved Power Supply Upgrade For Dell Inspiron 3880

    Again, we seem to be getting stuck on video cards. Like I mentioned - I'm not a gamer. Although an upgraded video card would be nice (primarily for gaming - which I'm not interested in) my main concern is not getting what I was suppose to get(the Intel UHD 630 graphics is okay) - and their are...

    Solved Power Supply Upgrade For Dell Inspiron 3880

    I agree with much of what's been said here but, first of all, I'm not a gamer and, second, I know what line item I was buying. So, what I expect out of Dell is if your going to build a budget line tower with a great CPU with Intel 630 graphics, Optane M.2 latest technology, and a PCIe graphics...

    Solved Power Supply Upgrade For Dell Inspiron 3880

    The GT 1030 is what one person on the Dell Community suggest I get. I'll look into it but they seem a little pricey.

    Solved Power Supply Upgrade For Dell Inspiron 3880

    Yes, it boggles my mind about the power supply also. What really bothers me is that I've always been a big fan of Dell computers and their support - guess that's all changed. I had to stop talking to them because they were so ignorant about their own computers and lack of concern. As far as...

    Solved Power Supply Upgrade For Dell Inspiron 3880

    I've been all over the Dell site - Community Site and all - no real answers. Looks like I'm just stuck with it - I'll stick with Optiplex from now on.
