Dell Inspiron 1520 :: Battery Meter / AC Power Icon Disappeared

Nov 23, 2008

I've noticed that my battery meter/AC power icon has disappeared from my system tray.  I'm not sure how to make it reappear.  I'm not even sure how it suddenly disappeared in the first place.  The reason why I want this icon to always be there is so that I can tell how much battery power I have left on my laptop.  Also, when I am charging my laptop battery and letting my laptop run on AC power, the battery icon turns into the AC power icon.How do I get it to reappear?  Is the icon part of the Dell Quickset program/software?  I'm not sure.  I have an Inspiron 1520.

Dell :: Studio 1555 Windows 7 Power Options

Jan 26, 2010

The feature in Windows 7 that allows you to tell the laptop to stop charging the battery when it's plugged-in and has reached 100% is very cool (and greatly helps prolong the battery's life).

Dell :: XPS 13 "Extended Battery Life" Option In The Advanced Power Options?

Apr 12, 2009

#1 - What is the "Dell Extended Battery Life" option in the advanced power options? What does it do? The help article just says that extends the battery life.

#2 - With the facial recognition software, is there any way to take multiple "logon" images for the same user? Like sometimes I have the laptop on my lap

and sometimes it is on my desk and sometimes it is on the side so I can use with my external monitor and it seems like it won't log me in automatically unless I am in the exact position as when I enrolled it.

Apple :: Full Disk Encryption Options

Mar 17, 2010

Was thinking about flipping the switch on FileVault, but the reported issues with backup restorations, increased susceptibility to corruption due to sparsefile usage, etc., have me concerned.

I currently use encrypted DMGs for the absolutely must-not-be-plaintext stuff, but I don't particularly want anything on my laptop available in the case of theft.

I'm also using a Time Capsule in conjunction with Time Machine for backups at the moment.

All that said, is anyone using, say, TrueCrypt or some other approach to full-disk encryption which they support?

Apple :: What Are Mini Display Port To Dual-link Dvi Options

May 10, 2010

I have a 13.3" MBP and a HP LP3065 monitor. At times, I would like to use the monitor for more real estate. I know there is the Apple mini display port to dual-link dvi adapter. Are there any other options that I will be able to use my monitor at 2560x1600 resolution with the MBP?

The reviews for the apple adapter suck and basically all of them have flickering issues. I would hate to buy it, return it, and waste my time on something I know that has a great chance of failure.

I also have Logitech Z-5500 speakers that I would like to use with my Macbook. Would a toslink to mini-toslink cable work?

Dell :: SLI Option Suddenly Disappeared In My XPS1730?

May 21, 2009

So after installing the new 185 drivers a couple of weeks ago, I turned on SLI, restarted, and forgot about it.

Now I just checked the nvidia panel and there is no option to turn on SLI. I went to device manager and only one 8800m gtx is listed there when there used to be 2... seems like the computer doesn't even see the second GPU.

tried reinstalling the drivers but still only one gpu is showing up...

HP/Compaq :: 8530w Fingerprint Reader Just Disappeared

Jan 12, 2009

Just the other day, I was using the fingerprint reader in my EliteBook, when it suddenly refused to log me into the pre-boot authentication; I had to use a password, instead. Now, it seems my fingerprint reader has (electrically) ceased to exist -- it doesn't appear in device manager under Windows or in lsusb under Linux, and the option to "Swipe Finger or Choose Token" at the preboot authentication screen. Does anyone know what would cause this? The first candidate I can think of is the motherboard.

In addition, my system has started behaving oddly when resuming from suspend -- most of the time, resuming from suspend results in the laptop hard-rebooting about 1/2 second later, and then loop back to the BIOS logo a couple of times before going on and booting.

My question: do I just have to send it in for repair, or is there something else I can do?

When I bought the laptop customized, HP did not offer the option for a webcam; ideally, I'd really like to just pay them the difference and have them add a webcam while they're taking the thing apart, anyway. Is there any way to get HP to do this? If anything, they could probably just swap the GPU with another laptop (a preconfigured one with same specs, but nvidia), so I'd have the same specs with ATI, and now a webcam.

HP Pavilion Dv 9000 Audio :: Sound Has Disappeared

Mar 7, 2014

I have an older HP Pavilion dv 9000, with Windows 7. I was attempting to watch a video and noticed that the sound was muted. So, initially, I tried to turn it up, but it seemed locked. It had never done that before, so after several failed attempts, the mute sign disappeared and now it's just a red x, and when I go in to check it, it tells me that there is no sound hardware installed. I tried to install a new driver from your website but it is still not working.

Lenovo X / Helix Tablet :: X200T Wireless Card Disappeared

Jun 12, 2011

A few days ago I lost the internet at home. I can connect fine with an ethernet cable, and another computer in the house runs fine off of wifi, so the only problem is my WIFI.
The WIFI or WLAN doesn't show up under Network adapters nor Other Devices in Device Manager. I would have tried a system restore but it happened before the last restore point
In the BIOS, it says the WLAN is switched on
The wireless switch on the side on the laptop is ON
Under Network and Sharing centre, I click Change Adapter Settings, and there is no Icon for the WLAN.  Only a LAN connection.
My WIFI card has completely disappeared.
