Dell :: Really Bad FPS Drops Constantly

Mar 16, 2010

I recently started to have really bad FPS drops.

Whenever i play any type of games, Frame rates drops by half if not more every few second to minutes constantly.

I thought it might've been a bad driver install but even tho I reinstalled 10.3 preview it still had the same problem. I also reverted back to an older driver but still had the same problem

Dell :: Fan Runs Constantly On XPS 14z

Mar 14, 2013

The fan on my laptop runs constantly. The noise is very annoying. I have been having this problem for 6months plus. In reading previous posts, upgrading teh BIOS seemed to resolve the problem for a while, but it is happening again now. The fan runs from the second I turn the computer on.  I am running the A02 BIOS. I just ran diagnostics and the fan test passed - speeds were 4500, 4500, 4000. current CPU temps ranged from 68-71. What else can I do?

Dell :: M1530 Fan Constantly Turning On And Off

Feb 10, 2009

I just did a full clean install today to remove Ubuntu. I put vista 64 bit on and reinstalled all the system drivers.

I took the laptop upstairs to watch 1 episode of the simpsons(23 min long) and during the whole episode, the fan would go on for 2-3 seconds, turn off for 4 seconds, turn back on for 2-3 seconds. This is extremely annoying as my parents are sleeping, its quiet in the house and while watching the episode I can hear the fan turn on and off.

Occasionally the fan will stay on the 5-8 seconds then turn off for 4 sec.

I love the unit otherwise but find this verry annoying. I've 'tweaked' vista to get it running quick, I'm set on Power Saver mode, LCD screen brightness low and just have IE open with the show playing.

I do believe I have Bios A12 installed also.

Dell :: M1330, Fan Suddenly Constantly On

Nov 3, 2009

About two weeks ago I noticed my Dell M1330 fan was constantly running on the slow speed. Whatever I did, it just wouldn't shut up. Especially when I was running a graphically demanding game, the fan would go nuts, running at maximum power.

I followed a tutorial to clean the dust out of the fan but it didn't fix anything. Today, I got frustrated with it, followed a tutorial to undervolt my CPU, downgraded my nVidia drivers to 167.45 (which apparently lowers GPU temp) and installed I8Kfan to try and fix it.

With I8Kfan, it is kind of like it used to be. I've had the computer for a year and six months and before this it was running almost completely silently unless I was watching a long movie/using heaps of tabs in a web browser/etc. Now, if I don't have I8Kfan set to kick the fans in at 60c they go all the time.

I even tried downgrading my BIOS to A14 because I read here that it could help. Still, no dice.

Dell :: Constantly Blinking HDD LED On E5500

Apr 10, 2009

I'm worrying because of the following issue on my new E5500:

The HDD LED is constantly blinking with one second frequency. I'm using WIN XP, this blinking can not be seen in BIOS, but I can see it with a Live XP, and it's also blinking when XP install starts,

but there are not any processes.Because of the mentioned reasons, this could not be because of indexing, or pagefile (additionally I have tried to turn them off, and blinking remained)

I've reported this issue to Dell, and the HDD was replaced, but I still can experience the blinking.

Dell :: 1558 Harddrive Or Fan Constantly Spinning?

Feb 17, 2010

I don't know what it is, or maybe its just the way the system works...
But basically, but something is constantly on even when I just have the laptop on with a few IE windows, you can especially feel it just to the left of the touchpad. From time to time, I will also hear the the noise coming from it and it till slow down, then start up again.
I mean, its not a big issue, but is something wrong with the laptop?
This happens when the CPU load is as low as just 5%, temperatures around 42-45 degrees Celsius.

Dell :: Studio 1535- Fan Now Runs Constantly

Jan 21, 2009

In the last two weeks or so, the fan on my Studio 15 (1535) has been running continuosly. Even when it's under little/no load for extended periods of time, the fan stays on at higher-than-low-speed (from the sound)?

I've had it for about four months and this wasn't an issue until very recently. I have updated the BIOS twice (A02 to A03, then A03 to A06) and wonder if the most recent update was the culprit. I skipped A05 initially, but a few days ago I re-flashed using A05 to see if that might fix the issue- no dice! I'm debating whether I should go back to A03 and see if that does the trick?

But I don't want to keep arbitrarily flashing the BIOS over and over if there's no chance of it fixing the fan issue.

Anyone else have similar issues with the fan running constantly? Any suggestions on how to fix or, at least, mitigate the problem?

FYI- I always use the laptop on a flat, hard surface (desk or wooden lap-desk) to allow proper heat dissipation. I have also tried elevating the back of the system by 1/2-inch or so to improve airflow- NADA!

Dell Inspiron N5010 :: Shutting Down Constantly

Apr 4, 2013

I have replaced mother board and LCD of my Inspiron N5010. After replacement, it started to shut down constantly, usually 5-10 min after start up. I have run diagnostics, it showed error 2000-0413 (LCD cable not detected), but could not finish all diagnostic process, cause it shut down again during CPU memory test.  

Is it possible that because of this error computer shut downs then working or it is two separated problems? Can it be that only cable connector causing error or it is a defect of new mother board?

Dell XPS 12 :: Constantly Dropping WiFi Connection

Feb 16, 2014

I am getting intermittently dropped wifi connection.  It is a new/nearly new xps 12 convertible from the Dell outlet store a couple of months ago.  I have installed all windows updates including win 8.1.  My network adapter is an Intel Dual band wireless AC-7260 #2.  I searched on the intel site using the auto driver function and it cannot find any new drivers there for it.

I have also set the wifi adapter to "maximum performance" whether on battery or plugged in and it happens anyway (even when plugged into AC).Is there anything I can do for this or does a technician need to replace the wifi card (or do I need to RMA the notebook)?

Dell Latitude E6440 :: Fan Runs Constantly

Mar 5, 2014

I just got a new Latitude E6440. Overall I love the system, but when it is docked / on AC power, I have noticed that I can almost constantly hear the fan. Right now my CPU is only at 6% but I can hear the fan running. Is that just normal behavior with this system? Does it just have a louder fan that runs more often? I just upgraded from an E6410 and I don't recall ever hearing the fan. 

I am running Windows 8.1 Pro, and it is a brand-new install. I ran diagnostics and did not find any issues.

The touchpad on my Inspiron 11 3000 2 in 1 is driving me crazy.  I think it's working as intended, but the fact that the area over the buttons is also part of the touchpad means that I'm constantly moving the cursor right before I click on something...  It there any way to disable the touchpad area over the buttons?

Dell XPS 15 L502x :: Fan Constantly Switches On And Off Under No Load And Makes Loud Noise

Apr 9, 2012

my laptop is 1 week old and the fan constantly switches on and off, its under no load just idling, its a very loud and annoying problem, when I spoke to Dell they claim to have no knowledge of the problem, how can this be when a search shows up plenty on the subject.

they sent a technician out with a new fan but did not bother to replace because it will not solve the problem.

they are sending a new replacement, but I think it will have the same problem.

its a shame because I love the XPS, Dell need to get there act together and solve the problem.

my laptop came with latest bios and still has fan problem.

Acer :: Fan Starts And Stops Constantly

Jan 6, 2009

Model: Acer Aspire 4720-4538

The CPU fan is totally off when the CPU temp is under 55C (according to Everest). Once it's over 55C, it goes onto its low setting. Somewhere higher up, it goes to its high setting.

The problem: Even just browsing the web and doing light desktop work (IM, Explorer, Word), the CPU temp creeps up to 55C pretty easily. Once it does, the fan shoots on, but it only takes about 3 seconds to get to below 55C, so it shuts off again. Without the fan, the temp goes up past 55C again, and the cycle restarts.

The result is an on-off-on-off-on-off fan that turns on or stays off for only about 2-5 seconds at a time. REALLY annoying, esspecially in an otherwise quiet library environment. I can see people looking over at me with a "what the f is wrong with your computer" look.

I've updated the BIOS to its latest as of this date (Jan 06 2009) on the Acer site (3810), that didn't help any.

I've read (on this site) that Acer uses something propertiary to control their fan, causing normal fan control software to not work on Acer's.

Does anybody know of any software that will let me control the speed of the fan? I tried the fan control software for the Acer Aspire One, which didn't seem to work.

this is with minimal workload besides leaving BT on w/ 50kbs down and 10kbps up capped. room temperature is anywhere around 20-24, common room temperature at a library in edmonton. keep in mind that this is the CPU's temperature so it has less to do with the GPU's issue.
