Dell Inspiron N5010 Review

Dell Inspiron N5010 Review

Interfaces

Not anything special in particular, but meets the today demands, and having in mind the Dell Inspiron N5010 is a family intended notebook, it has all of the necessary ports. Starting from the front it has nothing except the two speakers placed left and right and the three led lights on the far left.

On the right side there is the 7-in1 card memory slot, a DVD-RW followed by a USB port and the LAN.

This time the designers decided to put ports on the back too which sometimes can be quite uncomfrotable considering there are even two USB ports there. So first is the SC adapter, an USB, then the battery slot, VGA output and another USB. Horrific design I must say, as this is so late 90’s, again drifting away from the casual family public idea.

On the left side we have the third USB port, a heat dispenser, the mic and headphones jack, a HDMI port an a lot of empty unused space.

          Hi Mirza download sata drivers for windows xp and when you will install windows xp by pen drive or by Disktte drive install it then u will able to do that

  3. TO ALL PEOPLES WHO WANTS WINXP!!

    i own a dell N5010 i5 and i use win7 ultimate…
    i tried to install winxp but then i realized that i have to change some system bios.
    changing system bios can slow the computer and sometimes greatly affect the performance.

    Also, because N5010 is a fairly new laptop, windows xp doesnt fully support its drivers since a while ago. I do know that the stock Windows 7 Home Premium has a laggy experience, but after i installed Windows 7 unlimited, its heaps better! i like windows 7 more then xp now ^^

    U can get windows 7 unlimited for free (download a crack version,or get a clean version then crack it ur self!(thats what i did) then boot up the .iso on a usb and change the boot sequence to usb first..)
    search up a full tut on google or youtube! btw there are ways to config WINDOWS 7 so it has a similar interface to windows xp. AND LASTLY, I REALLY ENJOY THIS COMPUTER…ITS USEFUL IN MANY WAYS. BUT HAS ANYONE TRIED THE HACKED OSX SNOW LEAPORD ON IT?? DOES ALL THE HARDWARE WORK PROPERLY ON OSX?? thx

  4. nvm i figured it out and btw, if anyone wants to know how, u’ll need iboot+multibeast it works but first you must install with -x bootflag after installing use -x bootflag and after setup delete ati kexts in /system/library/extensions then you can boot without any flags. P.S after multibeast mouse may not work if it doesnt boot from cd and get the voodoo trackpad and install it then you can boot without boot flags from Harddrive.
    that means u have to buy the retailed OSX as well…

  5. i have got a problem…. i bought this laptop and i askedin the shop how many hours to charg it the first time and they told me about 8 to 10 hours………….. i chargh it for 10 hours but my battery last the maximun one and a half hour……… why…./????? this laptop said that his battery last for 4 hours … help please

    1. I think you should switch your laptop off and charge it for over 6 hours and then see the battery time. Make sure that the display brightness is low while its running on the battery.

  6. i tried playing gta and Nfs on my dell N5010 and its saying video memory is insufficient. Nfs is not even responding when clicked ! Pls can anyone give a solution….

  10. the wifi driver for n5010 on XP3 is => Broadcom 5.100.235.12 and this is DW1501 Wireless-N WLAN Half-Mini Card.

    I got this driver by installing the software Driver booster 4.

  11. Thank you for sharing your view on the Dell Inspiron laptop. Currently, I am using an older version of Dell Inspiron laptop and looking to upgrade to the newer version. So this could help me in choosing the best one.
