I have installed XP on my Latitude E6500. Baseline is the ALPS Touchpad sucks, it is unprecise, slow and sometimes hangs. The worst I have ever experienced. I even had it replaced by Dell hoping to receive a newer Hardware revision but just got the same pos again so nothing changed.
What really annoys me is that when I wakeup my PC from Standby or Hibernation the Touchpad does not respond for about 20 of seconds so I have to wait.
Of course I have the latest driver 188.8.131.52 from Dell installed.
The touchpad of my Lenovo G50 (i3-4010U) is not working properly (windows 8.1). Sometimes when I use the touchpad, the arrow don’t move. Until it close and open the display, it’s don’t move. In addition, this method does not always work. I have gone to options and I've turned off touchpad options "two fingers" mode, but nothing change. I have still in function an old notebook pc (from 2007, not Lenovo!), and has never had this kind of problem. I need my computer for travel work but this problem becomes very difficult my job.
I recently bought a lenovo Flex 2 -14" one. The keyboard and touchpad together keeps getting disconnected at times. The backlight also keeps blinking when turned on. During that time, I am not able to receive any response via the touchpad and keyboard. It's like a loose connection. Keeps turning on and off!!
I am using lenovo g400s touch laptop( i5 3230 m processor...4 gb ram....500 gb hdd). My mouse touch pad is not responding properly......mouse pointer does not move....sometimes .does not respond to taps...and scrolling is also not functioning properly..... I am forced to use an external mouse...
I can't remember where I read it but somebody mentioned that on some of the older versions of the Dell ALPS Touchpad drivers there were more options available. Anybody know which version, if any, had support for tap zones in the corners or for browser back/forward swipe zones?
I tried the latest Toshiba drivers and the driver lets you configure these zones but for some reason it doesn't work. Horizontal scroll didn't work either on the Toshiba drivers but a feature I can only describe as "typing palm guard" works on the Toshiba version even though the Dell drivers don't have support for it.
So this suggests to me there are more options available that the ALPS hardware on our machines can support than provided by the Dell drivers.
On the Dell drivers when you type and graze your palm against the pad you can inadvertently move your cursor, select text in a random area, or accidentally lose focus from the edit box.
With the Toshiba driver it disables the touchpad as you type so that these mistakes can't happen and you can graze or even rest your palm on the touchpad surface
About 99% of the times, that I try to recover my Dell Vostro 1510 from suspend it doesnt work. I hit the power button to resume and the power light and WiFi light stays lit but the screen doesnt turn on and it stays like this. I have to hold down the power button to turn it off and turn it back on. How can I resolve this? Windows Vista SP1. I have the latest BIOS from Dell.
We have a new (1month old) XPS13, which will not boot up. It was being used to watch a video online, and then when that had finished, the lid was closed. When we came to turn it on again, there is no response.
The laptop is plugged in, with a light on the power pack. Holding the power button down doesn't illicit a response. I have seen some mention online of booting up into diagnostic money keeping the function key down and pressing the power button, but still no response.
There seems to be no way of telling whether there is any charge in the battery, so difficult to tell what is causing the issue.
I have two identical Dell Inspiron17R 5720's with the same problem with the Quote Key. When pressed once, nothing appears on screen. Press again and both appear. Get the same result if shift key is used for double quotes.
The same results get transferred to an attached USB keyboard, so it must be something wrong internally, either in Bios or Windows 7 (SP1)'s setup of the Standard PS/2 Keyboard.
I have Dell inspiron 15r which was fine till last night . But today when I turned on there is no response . Only power light turns on. No sound of fan or hard disk . No beeps. No change in power LEDs color. I did little research on net and tries to remove static charge but it won't work. Now power light is not turning of untill I remove battery. When I holds power button for few secs power light turns off for 1 or 2 seconds and turns on after that.
My laptop takes ages and ages to open applications, new browser tabs and websites. Quite often websites I visit give me a "session expired" message. Sometimes an application will give me a message saying "program not responding" but if I stay patient and don't close it, after some time the application opens!
I have a Dell Inspiron 3521 Laptop. I get this message from My Dell:
Dell Notification about Antivirus Conflict: You have more than one antivirus software enabled. This can lead to conflicts that may impact performance.
I have bought and installed BitDefender Antivirus ... the conflict must be from Windows Defender. Maybe I should uninstall Windows Defender ... how do I do this?
I had just closed it the other night after charging it. Then there was nothing - no boot, no LED with charger, no fan. I checked and the charger is definitely functioning, so I worry that this is a problem with the motherboard.
Since it's an ultrabook, I haven't been able to remove flea power since the battery is embedded into the laptop.I wonder if it would be possible for a technician to come have a look at it ASAP?
I'm in the process of upgrading my L521X/XPS 15 to Windows 8. The A09 BIOS introduced UEFI booting, which I of course intend to use. However, I can't get Windows installed when Smart Response is activated in the BIOS. The installer simply doesn't show any disks - even when loading the correct drivers. Changing to AHCI allows me to install - but of course without the benefit of Smart Response. Now, the question is: is it possible to use pure UEFI and Intel Smart Response Technology on the L521X?
Just bought an Inspiron 17R SE 7720 with a 32gb SSD. Started it up today and completed the 'setting up windows' bit. Opened up 'Intel Rapid Storage Technology' and it can see both of my 750gb HDD, and the 32gb SSD but there is no 'accelerate' tab available.
Incidentally, when I click on My Computer, I can also see both 750gb HDD and 32 GB SSD- i though the latter was not supposed to be visible here. Under 'Computer management' the SSD has an 8gb 'Hibernation' partition and a second usable partition.
Having read numerous posts about this already, I have checked in the Bios that Intel Smart storage is already selected.
I just upgraded my Y530 from 2GB*2 to 4GB*2 PC3 10666. BIOS recognizes the rams. From vista 64 startup it is extremely slow. I was able to log on, after half an hour and CPU is at 100% all the time and the computer fails to respond to mouse clicks or keyboard. An hour after this I was desperate trying to turn it off and pressed hand held the power key. Now it's corrupted my user profile. I know how to fix that but everything runs in slow motion 1:100 and I can't do anything. I tried to log on with admin and the video driver keeps crashing that I was almost not clicking fast enough to close those error dialogs and yes it's just as slow otherwise. Safe mode works fine. Win vista 64 reports 8gb in safe mode. I searched for a while and found that I might need new bios so where do I get it? All lenovo has are drivers. There was one request a while back for bios but there's no update on it.
My laptop charger suddenly stopped working. Last night it was still working perfectly normal. I tried using my friend's charger and it charges, so it's not the battery's problem. It's not the problem with 'Plugged in, Not charging' , but actually there is no response when I plug in the charger. Is it the software problem or is it the charger's problem? Is there a way to fix the charger?
I have a lenovo u410 with a 500gb hdd and a 24 gb cache. Now, I am experienced with hardware and software and have built/reinstalled a lot of computers before. This time it is a bit different. I did not get my windows 8 key with the computer only the OneKey recovery. I did do a backup with this program when the computer was new and I assume it is on the hdd.
So what I want to do is to replace the hdd with a new 2,5 in ssd and keep my windows 8 licence + all the lenovo goodness ( onekey feature, keyboard shortcuts etc..). What would be the best way of doing this? Can i transfer the backup I did to the new drive?
I just got my x230 yesterday and I'm having some weird issues.
(1) whenever my laptop goes to sleep mode. I can't seem to make it wake up. The power button would just slowly blink and would not respond to anything. I would have to hard reset my laptop for it to turn on. When I turn it back on, it would go the "Start windows normally" screen.
(2) whenever I close the lid, I'm guessing it tries to go to sleep mode, then if I wake it up, the system seem to reboot and would go to the "start windows normally" screen.
Got a new E6500 last week, and I love it! I got the audio crackling to go away, though there are minor latency spikes every couple minutes,
that however don't affect the audio/video. The screen is wonderful, the keyboard, everything.
But one thing that bugs me is that when the fan starts going it will never stop. According to HWMonitor, my processor (P8800) can be at 29-30 deg C (right above ambient!) and the Nvidia card at 43 deg C and it won't stop! It's extremely annoying
