Dell :: Advanced UltraBay II Li-Polymer Battery Into Latitude/Precision?

Mar 26, 2009

As the Lenovo Ultrabay Slim II HDD Bay (for T400/T500...) fits into the Dell Modular Bay,
maybe we can connect an "Advanced UltraBay II Li-Polymer-Battery" into the DELL notebooks.

2700mAh of additional power? About the same Voltage as the primery battery ....

Lenovo T400 / T500 :: ThinkPad T430s Ultrabay Battery Error After Upgrade

Oct 30, 2012

I recently upgraded my ThinkPad T430s to Windows 8 Pro and ever since my ultrabay battery gives me an error when ever I restart or turn the machine on. It goes away after I hit ok and the battery appears to still be functioning but the error is super annoying. I have the latest drivers and software from Lenovo and I have already had the battery replaced via tech support. Its so annoying i'm tempted to see if I can just get the whole unit swapped.

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.

Dell :: Latitude Vs. Precision ..

Jan 21, 2009

general differences b/w the two Dell business models? I'm looking to buy a 15" notebook, and I think the business computers may be better than the consumer ones. However, I'm having trouble understanding the different models' differences b/w each other on Dell's website.

Dell :: Second HDD For Latitude/Precision

Sep 20, 2008

Based on this post[url] it would appear the Media bay only allows for 1.8" hard disks!

Is this true? Can anyone confirm this is true for both models?

2xHDD is a must for me - running VMs on a single disk is a _real_ drag!

Dell :: Latitude E6500 Vs. Precision M4400- Differences?

Jan 27, 2009

I currently have a Latitude E6400 that I LOVE...except for the display. I bought it from the Outlet and it was such a good deal that I couldn't pass it up. But it has the WXGA (1280x800) CCFL display and I really wanted the WXGA+ LED.

I'm in the process of finding its replacement, again from Dell Outlet. I'm seriously thikning about stepping up a size to the E6500 and getting the WUXGA (1920x1200) display. The Outlet also has a surprising number of Precision M4400s in stock, too. I've also found several of those with the WUXGA display that I want.

I don't "need" the more powerful graphics card in the M4400. But I really like (make that- LOVE) the exterior design of the Precision

Dell :: To All Who Are Unhappy With Latitude/Precision Fingerprint Reader

Nov 30, 2009

This has been brought up before in this forum, but it was as an off-topic discussion on a thread with a different topic. I'd like to bring it to full discussion.

Basically, I'm quite happy with my E6400 but I don't use the fingerprint reader, because that involves using the Embassy Trust Suite.

This means that you cannot use the fingerprint reader for any other uses except logging on at boot and windows logon screen. You cannot use it for your web browser, for example.

Several people have asked Dell to invest in an open API for the fingerprint reader because of this. Dell suggested we opened a thread in their community feedback site, "Dell IdeaStorm", which I did. Here's the link.

Dell :: HowTo: Latitude E-/Precision M-Series Second 2,5" HDD

Jan 30, 2009

I have bought a Lenovo Ultrabay Slim II HDD Bay (for T400/T500...)!

It's Sata II and can hold a single 2,5" HDD. And the best: It fits the Modular Bay of my Latitude E6400!

I have also tested the speed and could achieve full SataII transfer speed (in my case 286 Mbytes/s). So this is also an option for using a SSD in your Laptop.

Here some pics comparing it with the standard Dell DVD Drive and pics of the Bay connected to the E6400:

Dell :: My New Precision M4300 Thinks It's A Latitude D830

Apr 28, 2009

I just got a new Dell Precision M4300 here in Israel (refurbished, not directly from Dell) with the following configuration:

CPU: Core 2 Extreme X9000
LCD: 15.4" WUXGA
Graphics: Quadro NVS 140M (apparently)
HDD: 160GB SATA 7200RPM

My question is as follows:

It in fact says Precision M4300 on the front of the laptop near the keyboard,
But when I turn it on it identifies itself as a Latitude D830.

I bought the laptop thinking I was getting a Quadro FX360M (it is CAD certified which is important to me as I work with their program).

What is going on? was I fooled in some way?

If I apply the latest M4300 BIOS update will it change the names of the laptop model and the graphics card?

Dell :: Second Hard Drive In Latitude (not Vostro Or Precision)

Dell :: Before/after Temps With Cool Slice For Latitude/precision

Nov 16, 2008

if anyone with the coolslice could report on how effective its passive design is at cooling the notebook?

In particular i would be interested in someone with a precision m4400....

Before and after temps would be helpful, how warm the bas of the cooler is when its attached, or if it feels always cool..also if it manages to keep the fan on "medium" speed most of the time....

Dell :: Calling All Latitude And Precision Owners With Nvidia Cards

Apr 21, 2009

I have a Dell Latitude E6400 with the Nvidia Quadro NVS 160m graphics card. When I put stress on the GPU (for example playing a game), it heats up to 102ļC, which is a dangerous temperature. I have called Dell Finland and they offered to replace the motherboard, which I refused because all other users with Nvidia cards that I know of have very high temperatures when playing a game. Dell Finland has now told me to send them an email describing my problem and provide links to other people describing their own problems.

Therefore, I'd like to ask all Latitude and Precision users with Nvidia cards to post their experiences here, in particular the GPU temperatures under load. You can use HWmonitor to measure the temperatures. I am especially interested in hearing from people who have done a "copper mod", since that has been so far the only successful solution to appear here in the forums.

Dell :: Latitude E6510 Vs. Precision M4500: Is It Just The Video Card Again?

Apr 6, 2010

Latitude E6500 and Precision M4400 were basically the same machine, the differences being the M4400's (obviously) different aesthetic on the lid, the more powerful GPU options, and a handful of other tweaks that I don't really remember the specifics of.

From what I can tell, the situation looks to be about the same this time around with the 15.6" Latitude E6510 vs. the 15.6" Precision M4500.

The Precision offers beefier GPU options and a 1600x900 sRGB LED display option, but I want the lower-power WLED 1080p display anyway so that's no loss

Dell :: Battery For Precision 4300

May 27, 2010

Battery is completely dead, no charge, have to keep it plugged in to stay on. I bought a battery at batteries plus because I needed one asap, well for some reason that battery made my monitor die when it was in.

Once I took the battery out monitor was normal. I don't really want to buy off dell as I'm not looking to spend that kind of money for a battery. Just looking for a battery similar to the one Dell provided,

if anyone knows where I could possibly find like similar to that. 11.1 Vdc, 85Wh, 9 cell Li-ion battery,

I keep seeing one's that 'work' for Precision 4300 but are $30-$40 which I seem kind of skeptical of. Just needing input on what to look for and where from one's around here who know a little more about this than I.

Dell :: Precision M90Doesn't Recognize Battery?

Oct 5, 2009

I'm working on a Precision M90 for a friend. I've reinstalled the OS and all drivers from the Dell website.

The problem I'm having is that even before reinstalling everything, the computer is not recognizing the battery.

I've tried searching and came up with nothing. It doesn't show up in the BIOS or anywhere else. None of the lights on the battery are showing up either.

The indicator on the laptop shows that it's in trickle charge mode, but this is clearly not happening. When I unplug the AC Adapter, it dies within a couple minutes.

The computer will run without the battery installed on AC power only. I tried to flash the BIOS, but of course I can't because the computer cannot recognize the battery.

Dell :: Can A Battery Slice Be Modded To Fit A Precision M6400?

I have an m6400 already but the battery just doesn't quite work for me at school. I could sell it, snag an m4400 + slice, get a netbook,

or keep my m6400 and somehow make the battery last longer. I suppose I could just put it to sleep and change batteries but that seems

Lenovo T400 / T500 :: How To Handle The Ultrabay

Jul 16, 2008

A key ? for me in purchasing a new machine is how to arrange 2 accessories: DVD player and a 2nd drive (primary drive would be an SSD).
 
From what I understand, I cannot swap out a HDD and DVD in the ultrabay--if going with a second HDD, the HDD is permanently installed. This implies that you make the pre purchase decision to either have a HDD or DVD player connected by USB and the other in the ultrabay.
 
Would one opt to have the HDD in the ultrabay due to increased data throughput vs. a USB 3x port?

Lenovo T400 / T500 :: Ultrabay Numerical Keypad

Jul 14, 2014

I was just wondering if there was a numerical keypad that could be slotted into the utrabay port for the t400? I find the numerical keyboard in place of the letters very difficult to use and I'd imagine that using a numpad plugged in via USB would be quite annoying if I was on public transport.

Lenovo T400 / T500 :: Ultrabay HDD Power-off When Idle

I have three drives: mSSD, HDD, HDD in ultrabay. I think this is taking its toll on my battery. My first HDD is often used since it has my "DownloadsFirefox & uTorrent" folders. However, my second HDD only has music. Is there a way to have it automatically power-off when I don't play music from that drive?

Lenovo T530. Power settings of Windows 7 and in Lenovo power Manager say that when laptop is plugged to AC adapter - NO SLEEP.

Lenovo T400 / T500 :: Cannot Eject Ultrabay Hard Disk On T430s

May 15, 2013

Just installed my T430s with Win7 x64.

But I have a problem with ejecting my ultrabay harddisk using "Safely Remove Hardware and Eject media" icon.

I installed the lastest Intel Rapid storage driver (RST) ver. 12.8.10.1005 from Lenovo download.

Ultrabay harddisk not in the list using Lenovo RST driver!

 If I use the native Win7 driver (Standard AHCI 1.0 Serial ATA Controller) it works:

Works fine using native driver.

I assume the Intel RST driver might have some improvement to the native driver.....so I would frefer using that.

This is how it looks like in the Device Manager:

Lenovo ThinkPad W Series :: W530 Ultrabay SSD Hot Swapping Option Has Disappeared After Windows 8.1 Update

Jan 8, 2013

I got a thinkpad w530 with Windowd 8 from the factory and its ultrabay worked really well. I use a few SSDs in the ultrabay and used to swap through them by just ejecting the one currently in use and plugging in another one. However, since Wondows 8.1 update I haven.t been able to do so, as I have to turn off the machine and change the drives.
 
I believe it has something to do with the OS set up. How to enable the hot swapping capability of the ultrabay?

Dell :: Latitude E6400 And Battery

May 8, 2009

I have been reading about people getting so many hours out of their E6400. I have the 9 cell battery and running the screen on the lowest setting, Bluetooth off and wifi on im getting close to 6 and a half hours of battery life. Is this normal....

I heard about doing a clean install, what does this do, and what benefits would i be achieving by doing this?..

Is there anything else i can do to get a little more juice out of the battery when i need it? I plan to have wifi on most of the time when it is being used. Basic web-surfing and Microsoft word...
