    Solved OS won't boot on Dell Inspiron 3520

    I misunderstood your question, my apologies. Let me ask a few questions to be sure I understand correctly. Windows is currently installed as UEFI or Legacy? When you change BIOS settings, and save then exit (F10). They automatically revert back to the old settings reboot?

    Video lags in browser

    That would cause buffering, not tearing. Try checking in task manager, while playing a movie, if your CPU is maxed out or not. Check if the Video lags at all in internet explorer. It uses a different rendering engine, and a different flash plugin than Palemoon/Firefox. That will at least...

    Solved cant get past welcome screen

    Sorry glock183, I was away for awhile. You burned a DVD from the tool I linked you right? After that you should be able to boot the DVD and get to the Windows setup prompt. There may be two boot options. [UEFI: DVD] and [DVD]. You'll probably want the one which says UEFI in your BIOS boot...

    Windows 8.1 installation in UEFI mode

    Weak WiFi reception on HP 15 AC042tu

    OP says another computer doesn't have the problem, so probably not the AP. I've never seen 1901 go over painlessly. That's just my experience though. Plus the opto-isolator lags and limitations. I never trusted it.

    Solved Change 32 bit to 64 bit ???

    Format the hard drive. Install windows with a 64-bit install media. Your processor must be x86_64. All x86 processors made in the past 5 years should have the 64-bot extension. Very few exceptions, if any.

    Touchpad Locks whenever I rest my hands on the motherboard

    I wouldn't rest my hands on a power-on motherboard. Really though, have you checked mouse settings in control panel? There should be a synaptics settings tab there. You can likely configure the touchpad to better suit your use.
