Dell :: 1530 Battery To Last Longer

May 16, 2009

I'm wondering how can I run my XPS 1530 longer than couples of hours on 6 cell battery ?
how about 9 cell users ? Can your battery last more to 4 hours ?

With lowest brightness, only 1-2 tasks running, how many hours can you get with 6 cell and 9 cell? I get only 1.5-2 hr on 6 cell which is actually quite bad and have to take adapter everywhere every time...hoping to take less weight

Dell :: E1705: Battery No Longer Powers My Laptop (NOT Bad Battery)

Dec 1, 2009

Last night I was using my E1705 running on battery when the thing just suddenly zapped off. I had recently glanced at the battery meter which was 75% full. I pressed the button on the actual battery which shows 3 of 5 lights on the charge meter.

The battery itself is only 1 month old and has been performing flawlessly. I just thought it was something random so I plugged the machine in and it started up.

I didn't think anything else of it till today when I went to move my laptop, removed the power cord, and the laptop turned off. I checked the physical battery meter which still reads 3 of 5 lights .....

Dell :: Do Slower Processors Give Longer Battery Life?

Jan 16, 2009

Do slower processors give longer battery life? How much of an effect?

I'm looking to get a Studio and wonder whether I should consider a slower processor for that reason. If it bogs down under Vista, however, that's not good.

I want to get the 9-cell battery.

Dell :: Replacement Battery For XPS 1530

Nov 3, 2009

I've had my Dell XPS for over a year and a half now. No complaints with the system, especially after upgrading to Windows 7, but now I need a new battery.

The 9 cell and 6 cell that I originally bought with the system have been depleted so much that even with the laptop plugged in, the battery will not charge and obviously, both are way beyond the warranty date.

which leaves me with no other option but to purchase a new battery.

I checked out the dell website and the prices of their the replacement batteries is ridiculous.

Plus all the reviews that are posted up there, echo the same sentiment, the the battery will die after a year and will no longer be able to be charged with the AC adapter.

Dell :: 1530 Battery Life

Oct 8, 2008

Ive always gotten, well, not so much battery life out of my machine. However, today Ive realized it might be a problem with it, rather than how it is meant to work. Today I put a DVD (AC/DC live!), plugged an hdmi cable into my tv, and it died half way the 2 hour concert. All my laptop was doing was working as a dvd, so, I figure something must be wrong.

Dell :: XPS 1530 9 Cell Battery

Apr 24, 2008

I'm getting ready to order my XPS1530, waiting for the screen issue to be sorted out, hoping to hear that the Samsung has been dropped in favour of the LG.

On my current laptop, an Inspiron 8600 I have the 2nd modular bay battery to give me extra uptime when on the move. As the 1530 doesn't have this option I've been thinking about the 9 cell battery. Now in all the places I might be when I buy it, the UK, India or Singapore a 9 cell costs an extra 100 pounds (200 US$) over the 6 cell. This seems a lot extra to pay for an unknown quantity of extra uptime, I don't think I should assume I get a straight 50% more.

Dell :: Little Circle That Looks Like A Watch Under The Battery (1530)

Feb 7, 2009

I just received my XPS 1530 and after a thorough inspection, everything seemed ok. But then I removed the battery and I found this little circle that looks like a watch battery the size of a penny and it looks it either melted, was hammered in to fit the hole and it is all discolored. Not sure what it is and if it should look like that.

I attached a pic. Does yours look like that?

Acer :: Battery On 3810T No Longer Fully Charges

Mar 3, 2010

After 6 months of moderate use, the battery on my 3810T seems to not want to fully charge. The battery indicator in windows (win 7 home premium 64bit), shows the max charge at 88% and the front led stays yellow for a long time when plugged in (over 12 hrs) before finally just turning off instead of going to blue to indicate a full charge.

Dell :: XPS 1530 Shuts Off When 'playing' Game On Battery Power

Jan 18, 2009

I say 'playing' because I never actually get there. Say, Im on the train, and I'll want to play something.. Assassins Creed. I load it up, loading screen is fine, the little video opening is fine, as soon as it comes to actually rendering the graphics it jsut turns itself off. I plug it in at home and it runs beautifully, but as soon as I unplug that power cable, the whole thing just turns off.

It reports a windows error after this, but there is nothing in the error log telling me what shut it down. I KNOW this isn't overheating because I can play it fine on power and although it gets hot when playing gfx intense games it has never turned itself offdue to that.

The games I can play on battery are WoW and Cimcity 4 and audiosurf (although that lags alot on battery :) xD

The games I cannot are Assassins Creed and Devil may Cry 4.

Is this a power issue?

I have tried on multiple power settings and it still likes to turn off when I want to play these games. It may be a GPU power issue?

Dell Inspiron 1545 :: Battery Icon No Longer Had Plug Icon On Top Showing It Was Charging

Jan 24, 2013

I was using my inspiron 1545 the other night and it was charging the battery, then i heard a pop from the left hand side of the keyboard. At this point i noticed that the battery icon no longer had the plug icon on top showing it was charging. I then looked at my power adapter and noticed the blue light was not on on the brick.

Finding this I unplugged the brick and then plugged it back in..POP from the laptop again....and the blue light on the brick went off again. This happens everytime.

So I am guessing there is something wrong in the laptop and the brick turns off maybe activating its short circuit mode protect. Obviously, this means I can not charge the battery.

If i remove the battery and try to run it on mains adapter it POPs as soon as you plug it in and the laptop won;t boot as it has no power...

Dell XPS M1530 :: No Longer Powers On

Everything was fine, then when I would plug in a USB peripheral into a USB port, it shuts down. I tried it several times and now the laptop will not turn on at all. I have searched on google but there is not an issue like mine. Unlike others I do not even get lights or any hard drive noises. Is the motherboard fried?

May 11, 2010

Just upgraded the RAM in my new (to me) M4400 from 4GB to 8GB.

Once the BIOS screen is finished, everything is normal and Windows runs fine.

Is this normal?

Dell :: Studio XPS 16 1645 I7 No Longer Available To Order?

The i7 1645 has been removed as a choice from Dell's website, as far as I can see.

Sure, you can type in "Studio XPS 16 i7" in Google and get taken to a page from Dell where you can configure, but you can't actually get an i7 1645 starting from a Dell site.

Dell :: XPS M1730 ExpressCard Remote No Longer Available?

May 11, 2009

I got my m1730 in the mail a week ago or so, and its awesome of course. But all the reviews I saw of them state that it has a remote that fits nicely into the

expresscard slot. But no where on the dell site does it allow me to buy one, nor did it allow me to add one to my configuration when i purchased the laptop. Did Dell stop offering the expresscard remote?

My issue is playing Blu-Ray Discs. I put the disc in, and the program automatically initiates.

After a while though just as its doing the the loading green circle thing the program abruptly terminates.

I have no idea why it does this. When I start the program back up manually and tell it to play the BD movie, it just says "Unable to detect a DVD or a DVD device on your computer.

My Inspiron 1764 won't boot.  It worked fine up until this morning. This morning it stopped booting.  I removed and reinstalled the battery and reseated the RAM and hard drive.  Then it would boot but would constantly go into sleep mode.  Now it will no longer boot at all.When plugged in the battery light stays illuminated and will stay on even after the cord is unplugged. When I press the power button the power button may light for a few seconds and then go out.
