Dell :: Hard Drive Options For Latitude E4200?

Feb 8, 2009

I think the E4200 is a great machine, and I can probably get one cheap off Dell Outlet. My only real concern here is hard drive capacity. The standard options of 64GB or 128GB SSD aren't going to cut it for me...

I'd want to have at least a 256GB SSD or one of the Toshiba 250GB 5400RPM 1.8" drives.

I know that the E4200 has a 1.8" hard drive slot, so a standard 2.5" notebook hard drive will not work at all.

But its 1.8" slot should mean that regular 1.8" hard drives should work in it, no? Surely the computer can use either a 1.8" SSD drive or 1.8" hard drive

I have an older e4200 (roughly late 2008) and want to let my child use it.  Before I hand it down, I want to completely clean the hard drive and start from a "brand new" perfectly clean hard drive with Windows and all the appropriate drivers installed.  How do I accomplish this?

Dell :: Latitude E4200: Samsung SSD PB22-JS3 TM 64GB Drive W/ TRIM Support?

Feb 22, 2010

I got a Dell Latitude E4200 with a Samsung SSD PB22-JS3 TM 64GB drive. Does anyone know if its firmware can be upgraded to support TRIM in Windows 7? Current

firmware version is VBM19D1Q. Seems like the version that support TRIM is VBM19C1Q. Doesnt that seem like a downgrade? I've had my notebook since October 2009 so I dont think it has TRIM support from the factory.

Firmware location I think is here:

Dell :: Hard Drive Options For The M1730

Nov 6, 2008

I'm fed up deleting stuff all the time and I want to also run a proper dual boot configuration with Vista and XP (Because I've heard from you all that XP = the win for SLI and stuttering issues.)

My options are to either run single hard drive mode or RAID 0. Obviously RAID 0 means the same size hard drives, but if i went single hard drive mode i could get the

320 gb WD 7200 RPM 16mb CACHE (use as main drive for vista)
500gb WD 5400 RPM 8mb CACHE (use as XP drive and storage)

OR i could get 500gb x2 for RAID 0 and partition it with an XP partition on the D: drive.

I think 320x2 is not enough, if I'm upgrading I should go for at least 800gb.

My question for you guys, is do you think single mode performance of a 7200 RPM 16mb cache drive will be enough, and barely noticable than 5400 RPM 500GB discs in RAID0?

Dell Latitude E6410 :: Cannot Keep Hard Drive

Dec 9, 2014

My company has offered to give to me my Latitude e6410.  However, I cannot keep the hard drive.  It has to be destroyed per policy.  I am able to pull off recovery information and build my own image.  One more concern is that the current hard drive is encrypted with Symantec Endpoint Encryption (SEE).  Therefore, I do not want to simply clone the drive as I do not want no cannot use that image.

Also, if I need to reinstall my own image of Win 7 from new disks, will this e641 run 64bit.  Currently the OS is WIn7 Pro.What about the recovery partition? I already have a spare 5ooGB 7200rpm 2.5" disk and i have a lot of hardware experience so I have no concerns about the actual disk replacement.  It's just the image.

Dell :: Latitude E4200 Info

Oct 4, 2008

I have been see-sawing between the Sony Z and the E4200 (two very different machines) but being a Dell customer for the past decade, and having access to Premier and EPP, tipped the decision in favor of the the smallest E in the new Dell portfolio.

I thought I would start this thread as a 'catch all' place for all the folks who are ordering the new E4200. I have been looking for info on the E4200 in particular but there isn't much to be found though a few folks have indeed received their E4300s.

There seems to be some disappointment with the E4300. I am holding out until the backlit keyboard as well Latitude ON (hardware-based) are widely available. It does seem that some of the kinks still need to be ironed out from the lilliputian E-class Dells. Here's an early review that pretty much sums up the disappointment that some new owners are feeling:

Dell :: Latitude E4200 LED Panel

Apr 18, 2009

There are two different LED Panels used for E4200.
Toshiba is not a good one, which has some bleeding issue.
Samsung is the best, which is soft.

You can figure out which panel you own on your E4200 via looking at the bottom of LED panel (Golden color means that you have a Toshiba one, and Silver one will be Samsung. Toshiba one also shows a lot of small bulbs at the edge, bad, bad...

Dell :: Can I Move Hard Drive From Thinkpad To Latitude E6400?

May 12, 2009

I've got an old Thinkpad R61i with a Western Digital "Blue" 320gb drive installed in it running Vista Premium.

I bought the drive from Zipzoomfly and installed it into the Thinkpad in January in order to bring back some life to the computer. And it worked; it's fast and quiet.

A few weeks ago, I bought a refurb E6400 from the Dell outlet store. It came with a 160gb hard drive installed.

It's a nice drive. But as the days tick away, I've been thinking of pulling the 320 from the Thinkpad and installing it into the E6400.

I'm mean what the heck, I'll get twice the space, and it's a Western Digital. It's a win win.

Dell :: Latitude E4200 Fan Noisehow To Turn It Off

Jan 7, 2009

I am on to my 2nd Latitude e4200 now ...

the first one had the fan come on straight away at the start and then never turn off. Regardless of what temperatures the ACPI and cores were running at.

it was running bios A03 and we upgraded it to A04 and that didn't fix it. We think the thermistor was buggered so we replaced that but then the Dell service guy basically couldn't remember how to put it back together and buggered it so it wouldn't boot!..........................................

Dell Latitude E6330 :: After Installing New Hard Drive Cannot Disable Touchpad

Apr 5, 2013

I have a Dell Latitude E6330 laptop and I recently replaced my hard drive as my old one had died--this was confirmed by the IT department at my school.  After replacing the hard drive on my laptop, I found that the Fn+F5 command to disable my touchpad/touch stick was unresponsive.  Upon further inspection, the touchpad button on my system tray was gone, and all touchpad related functions of my laptop were gone.  In place of my touchpad (and all windows, settings, options, etc. ... that concerned it) was this ps/2 compatible mouse, which I am not allowed to disable.

I am a gamer and a student, and having my touchpad/touch stick enabled hinders my ability to type or play games as easily as I am used to due to misclicks.  I used to be able to set my laptop to disable my touchpad (and other related hardware) automatically when I plugged in a USB mouse, and I would like to return to this setting if possible. How to do this without disabling the touchpad in the BIOS (as I do need to use my touchpad during lectures) ...

Dell Latitude E4200 :: USB And Fingerprint Stopped Working

Feb 21, 2013

Two days after my warranty expired, both USB ports on my E4200 and the fingerprint reader stopped responding.  The USB on the docking station work fine.

I have since tried to update the bios and uninstalled the USBs in Device Manager.  All to no avail.

When I plug a stick into the USB port, it lights up (i.e., some power to the port), but the computer does not see anything plugged in.

Dell :: My Latitude E4200 Starts To Make A Buzzing Noise

Jan 1, 2010

Recently my laptop starts to make a high frequency whining noise, almost constantly and rarely stopped.

I tried to locate the component which the noise was originated from, I can only figure out it's somewhere below the memory module, but there is no moving component there, so my biggest suspect is the fan, because if I put my ear to the back of the laptop, except the whining I also heard very minor "clicking" noise.

Another weird thing is, this noise only starts after Windows is loaded, not in BIOS or during booting, although the fan was running at those times.

Dell Latitude E4200 :: Backlit Keyboard Noise - Slight Buzzing

May 4, 2010

I just picked up a e4200 with backlit keyboard and whenever the back light is turned on there is a noise (slight buzzing or hum) that can be heard. As soon as the back light turns off the sound goes away. It's kind of bugging me because you wouldn't think that the back light would add to the decibel level of the laptop..

Dell Latitude E4200 :: Serial Port Driver Unknown Device - Windows 7

Feb 6, 2013

I installed  Windows 7 64 bit on a Dell E4200.I had two yellow exclamation points in device manager for unknown devices.

PCI Serial Port
PCI Simple Communications

I went to Dell support site and to the drivers and downloads page for my Service Tag.Under the Chipset section there is an Intel driver for AMT HECI.   Installing that driver solved the PCI Simple Communications item.

Also  under Chipset there is an Intel driver AMT SOL.   I installed that driver but the PCI Serial Port was still showing Unknown with the Yellow..In my case I had to then manually Update the driver as follows:

Open Device Manager > right click on PCI Serial Port and choose Update driver > choose Browse my computer and browse to the driver folder for the AMT SOL just created when you downloaded and installed the driver mentioned above.   Location for me is C:DellDriversR279202.

Dell Latitude E4200 :: BIOS HDD Password Bypass Option Not Working Properly?

Jun 16, 2011

I’m testing some E4200s (with SED SSDs and regular SSDs) and have run into a possible bug with the HDD password “bypass” option in the BIOS. The “bypass” option in BIOS allows you to specify if the HDD password needs to be entered during warm boots (restarts), standby, etc. I’ve set it to “disable”, which means that the HDD password must always be entered (even for restarts). However, the E4200 does *not* prompt for the HDD password during warm boots (restarts). It correctly prompts for the HDD password during cold boots and standby/hibernate only. I’ve tried upgrading the BIOS to the latest version (A13 to A20), but that didn’t work.

 At this point I think it's a bug in the BIOS. I've tried this with different e4200 laptops and different drives (regular SSDs, and self-encrypting SSDs).

Dell :: Memory Options For Latitude E6430?

Aug 3, 2013

I'm planning to purchase a Dell Latitude E6430 in a few days time but I have a couple of things to clarify before I purchase this laptop. The question is, Dell manual correctly says this supports up to 16GB of RAM. However Dell does not provide/ship 16GB of ram with this laptop.

I would purchase aftermarket 16GB of ram to do what I want to do with this laptop. But I'm uncertain which RAM specification I should buy. Should I buy DDR3L (1.35V) or DDR3 (1.5V) SODIMM ?

This is what the Latitude E6430 manual says :

MemoryMemory connector two SODIMM slotsMemory capacity 1 GB, 2 GB, or 4 GBMemory type DDR3 SDRAM (1600 MHz)Minimum memory 2 GB Maximum memory 16 GB

Dell :: Latitude E4300 External Display Options?

I just recently purchased a Dell Latitude E4300 and i'm pretty happy with it overall.

However, i'd like to connect an external monitor to it. I noticed that it only has a VGA port (unless i'm blind), but Dell's website makes many references to it having a DISPLAY-PORT.

It even sells an adapter for this model:

Does this thing have a Display port?
