New to the community!
I just installed a new HD on my Dell Inspiron 560. The new drive is larger (1TB) than the original (750GB), and it is the drive "suggested" by Dell and purchased from their Web site.
Before swapping the drives, I followed the guides for backup, creating a recovery disk, and the like.
The swap seemed to go well. The trouble soon showed in a number of actions, all with the error code 0x8E5E0247.
My research all tended to point to updating the Intel SRT software. Apparently, this "fix" worked on a variety of computer types, makes and models.
The trouble I have is since the swap, I can not download any of the "fix" programs. I get all the routine screens, etc., but my machine will not "open," "save," "save as," or take any other action.
Does anyone have a suggestion for overcoming this problem?
Hi Knorske, I have some questions in order to clarify the issue:
