Dell :: 1520 Bluetooth

Jun 3, 2009

I've had my Dell 1520 for 18 months now and had next to no problems but today I turned on my notebook and was presented with a "Found New Hardware" window claiming Windows needed to install driver software for my "Bluetooth Peripheral Device"

I click the "locate and install driver software (recommended)", it searches for the driver and then asks me to install from a disc...which i don't have. Then when I check for a "solution online" it tells me my Broadcom Bluetooth Device isn't compatible with Windows Vista, yet i've been using it perfectly fine for the past 18 months...Help!

I tried uninstalling the Widcomm software I got from the Dell Website, restarting and then re-installing but I still get 2 "Other devices - Bluetooth Peripheral Device" in the device manager and this never ending cycle of asking for a driver to be installed.

Dell :: Bluetooth Disappears After Standby. Vista + Bluetooth 370.

Jul 19, 2009

I noticed a few other threads around the internet about this issue, but couldnt find a definitive answer on how to get it fixed, so I thought I would try it here.

The problem is that when I go into standby and wake from it, my bluetooth icon disappears and bluetooth doesnt work.

I have a Dell Studio XPS 13 running Vista 64 with the Dell bluetooth 370 minicard. Ive tried using the generic windows bluetooth drivers as well as Dell's drivers.

Nothing appears in device manager as well. I have to manually go into bluetooth settings, disable the device, then re-enable it.

Acer :: 1810T: How Do I Disable Power Management On Bluetooth; Keep Bluetooth Fully Powered

Feb 8, 2010

My Bluetooth keyboard goes to sleep after a period of idle and it takes 15 seconds for the Acer Aspire 1810T to wake up and notice the Bluetooth keypresses.

However, I found out my Bluetooth keyboard works reliably when I have a second Bluetooth device connected and active at the time (such as either a headset or bluetooth tethering to a cellphone as modem), the computer doesn't have a 15 second lag in noticing the Bluetooth keyboard again - the keyboard works almost right away even after being unused for sometime.

So that means the culprit is in the power management on the Acer Bluetooth module. Is there a way to force the Bluetooth module to never go to sleep? Any checkbox somewhere, a register setting? Even going as far to purchase a different Bluetooth driver? Or any other option? Sometimes the sleep is useful, but it definitely isn't useful with the Bluetooth keyboard. This problem does not happen if I use an external Bluetooth dongle.

(With BatteryBar Pro, I notice that power consumption falls suddenly whenever the Bluetooth module goes to sleep when the keyboard goes idle for more than 30 seconds, and at this point, it has difficulty 'waking up' when I start typing on the Bluetooth keyboard. But the problem also still happens when the laptop is plugged in!)

Acer :: How To Enable Bluetooth On D150 Without External Bluetooth Button Under LED

Aug 12, 2009

I have finally tested the Acer Empowering Technology software on my Acer D150.

Great news, the software works to enable/disable the Bluetooth module on the netbook without physically pressing the button. This is great for people like me that do not have the button on top to push the button inside. There are two software needed for people to get this running on the D150. First is the required ďAcer Empowering FrameworkĒ software and the second is the ďAcer ePower Management.Ē Once both software are installed on the system, the setting to enable/disable the Bluetooth module is in the ePower Management.

Power profiles within windows will probably be reset to default, so those would have to be readjusted if a user changed them. I am actually running Windows Vista on my Acer D150 with the Acer Empowering Technology software for Vista. I am not 100% sure if the software will also work on XP, but from the notebookreview forums, I believe it should work just as fine (but more options on other Empowering Technology software).

(in XP, the driver also works, but need XP edition, not vista editon).

Dell :: XP Won't Boot 1520

Oct 26, 2008

After rebooting I got an error message that I was missing hal.dll and that windows could not stat. Note: XP has been working great for about 8 months now.

I got this message after trying to boot in safe mode as well.

I put the XP installation disk in and went through the recovery process but no dice. It just loads up the dell logo then goes to a black screen but no more error message. I can hear the hard drive spinning.

Dell :: Locating CPU On 1520

Apr 13, 2009

There was a problem with my hard disk and dell was supposed to send me a new one. When it arrived, it came with a new processor.

I didn't realize that I had to install a new cpu but I've decided to anyway. To replace it, do I have to remove the enitre bottom casing of the laptop?

If I do, what is the best way to snap it out of place without breaking anything? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Dell :: Upgrading 1520

Nov 15, 2008

I was thinking of trying to upgrade a couple of parts of my Dell 1520, namely the hard drive and cpu (i've been told the 8600M GT is the best graphics card the 1520 can handle?).

Now I don't have a clue about what processors I'm able to upgrade to whatsoever, so if anyone can stear me in the right direction that would be fantastic. My current Dell 1520 uses an Intel Core 2 Duo T7250 @ 2.0GHz if that helps at all?

As for the hard drive, is the "Western Digital 320GB 2.5" Hard Drive Scorpio Black SATAII 7200rpm" drive compatible? I think the 1520 uses SATA right?

Dell :: Inspiron 1520 Fan

Oct 9, 2009

Recently my fan has been making a lot of noise whenever it starts up.

Sometimes it sounds like it's getting caught on something as it spins and it trips for a few seconds. Other times it makes a high pitched, not particularly loud but noticeable, noise,

or it'll sound like it's blowing out a lot of air, usually more then it really is. It's also made a sort clicking sound before, similar to the noises a processor on a normal computer might make when loading or booting or something, but I know it's for sure coming from the fan

Dell :: My Inspiron 1520 Needs Some TLC

Sep 5, 2009

First of all I wanna say that I'm a new member on this site. I've checked it out a few times and it seems that people get good help and tips so I decided to register too.

Anyway I bought an inspiron 1520 right about 2 years ago. It's my first laptop and I havent had any troubles with it whatsoever and it's been surving me great.

However 2 years of wear and tear have taken its toll on the outside plastic cover of the computer. One of the corners is cracked (the one to the right of the volume and play/pause buttons) the metal part is a bit bent but it's nothing serious .......

Dell :: Inspiron 1520 Tv-out

Jan 21, 2009

I have an Inspiron 1520 with a GeForce 8600M GT graphics card.
I spilled some coke on it some time ago, and had to replace the keyboard, and also the media buttons don't work really well, so I purchased a new palmrest.

My problem is, that the TV-Out doesn't work anymore... although...it does work, in the way that I can figure out some image on the TV, but it's all black&white and flickering. Also, when Windows boots up, I can't see the "Welcome" screen, it's just black,

and suddenly the desktop appears with all the loading apps. It's 100% TV-Out related, because I recently reinstalled Windows, and it went just fine until I tried again the tv-out (which still did not work).

Dell :: Can't Get 1520 To Boot From Anything (not Even DVD)

Mar 2, 2013

Yesterday I noticed that the machine had rebooted itself and was stuck at the green bar. I powered down and turned it on again, and got the "Windows did not start properly" screen. 

I chose Safe Mode, but partway through the boot, it restarted again and went back to the same screen. 

No matter what I choose I can't get Windows to boot. 

So I then put the DVD in the machine and it would not boot from there. It went straight to booting from the hard drive with the same result. 

I changed the boot sequence in the BIOS so that the DVD was first, and it still would not read from the DVD. 

Giving up in disgust, I tried again several hours later. This time it would read off the DVD so I thought I was on the road to recovery. 

But it still doesn't boot. Most of the time I am getting to a black screen with a large white cursor on it, and go no further. 

One time, and one time only, I got as far as the menu you get when you start with the DVD, I chose repair my computer, and then it proceeded to sit there and do absolutely nothing again.  [Note also - it took a very long time to go from the black screen to the Vista screen - way longer than normal]

So I now suspect a hardware failure. Hard Drive? RAM?  I can on occasion see the hard drive light flashing for extended periods of time.

Dell :: Bluetooth 365/370 Modules Failing-multiple Platform,multiple Bluetooth Versions

Apr 17, 2010

I have need to use Bluetooth stereo audio functionality (A2DP profile) almost exclusively when I use my laptop.

I had owned a M1330 with the Dell 355 Bluetooth Module for several years without issue. Last November, I decided to upgrade and purchased an M15x (laptop #1) with the Dell 370 Bluetooth module included,running Windows 7 x64 Ultimate. Not more than one day out of the box,the 370 module failed while watching a movie. It literally disappeared from device manager and no uninstalling/reinstallation of drivers alleviated the situation. The only way to get the radio to be recognized by the operating system was, and is, to shutdown,reboot into bios,disable the card in bios,reboot into windows,restart,boot into bios,enable the card and then reboot into Windows. The card would then work for awhile but eventually fail again. The module works for short periods of time but if put under an extended load,fails. That and other issues with the M15x caused me to return it.

Contacted Dell and returned the M15x and bought and built a Studio XPS 1645 (laptop #2) to replace it. Received the unit and literally within the 1st few hours,the 370 module failed exactly like the M15x.I thought o.k. a bad card and had tech support send out a new module for the XPS 1645. Received and installed it and the exact same problem happened. Failed when under an extended load. Again called tech support and was then dispatched an onsite tech to replace the entire motherboard and card. No resolution-card failed again. Spoke with a resolution specialist and returned it and again purchased a M15x (laptop #3-really liked the M15x over the XPS 1645)

Received the M15x-Bluetooth failure again. At this point, was considering dropping Dell altogether but thought I'd try the Studio 1558 (laptop #4) with the Bluetooth 365 module, in order to rule out the 370 card, first. Ordered and was delivered on the 5th of April, same exact issue-failure of card under a load. I am returning this defective Studio 1558 and again getting a M15x (laptop #5). I realize that the M15x Bluetooth card will fail again-in fact,am 100% sure it will fail,but have bought a Sony Bluetooth transmitter as a workaround.

What appears to be happening is that the card will shutdown when it gets warm.This is either a Broadcom manufacturing defect or a Dell engineering issue. I know now through personal experience that there is a serious issue with Dell Bluetooth cards.

If this was happening with only one laptop, I'd be ok with it but, this is occuring across multiple laptop platforms, with both Broadcom Bluetooth cards that Dell brands and sells.

This is either an oversight by engineering-maybe they didn't test the card under a heavy load, or Dell is knowingly selling defective equipment.

Dell :: Vostro 1520 Or 1320?

Jul 1, 2009

So I am contemplating between these two models but can't really decide. I like the real estate of the Vostro 1520 but the weight may be a problem. The 1320 is an option cause of it's battery life and weight. But at this point I am at a standstill...
So mainly, what are your opinions about these two macines..

Dell :: Inspiron 1520 Won't Boot At All

Jan 24, 2010

I just uploaded this video of my problem, you should be able to stream it, if anyone has any problems then let me know. And sorry for the quality, I only have a camera phone to hand, you should be able to see what happens anyway...hopefully

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z3dvfv8mT0E

Basically what happens is, I press the power on button of my machine, everything appears to be normal, the power LED turns on, the Hard drive activity LED flickers on and the DVD drive "clicks" (im sure some Dell owners know what I mean by this) BUT then all the lights go out (besides the power) and nothing is shown on my screen, no BIOS loading, nothing.

Does anyone know what might cause this?

I tried yesterday to get it to work but after about 7 hours I just gave up, nothing I did changed anything (I thought the CPU/GPU may of come unattached from the motherboard but after reseating them the problem was still there

Dell :: Inspiron 1520 Screen

Apr 28, 2009

can't see a thing on the screen. He left the laptop on hibernate for around 3 hours and when he came back, the screen was very dark.

He says he's restarted several times since then and the only thing which seemed to "light up" the screen was taking the power out; allowing the laptop to run on battery. However, just 5 minutes ago, even though the laptop was on battery, the screen has gone dark. He can barely make out MSN conversations by shining his lamp onto the screen but he can't see the mouse cursor.

The laptop is around 1 and a half years old.
