Dec 28, 2009

I have a M4400, and I notice there is no eject button for expresscard slot.

I am thinking to buy 54mm hidden esata expresscard, but i worry once i install i may not be able to pull it out because the card is not extruded like normal card. It is 'hidden'

Dell :: M4400 PCMCIA & Expresscard/54

Dec 14, 2009

I was told that this notebook is having expansion slot that is compatible with both PCMCIA & expresscard/54, how true is it?

Most important is whether this is USB 2.0 emulated slot or true PCIe 1x slot?

Or, is this notebook having 2 slots, 1 PCMCIA and 1 expresscard/54?

Expresscard/54 seems not very common today compared to /34.

Dell :: M4400 In Disguise Of E6500 ?

Dec 10, 2009

I need to make the outlook of the M4400 looks similar to E6500. Is the front cover of LCD exchangable between these 2 laptops?
Sounds stupid but I cannot let certain people know that I am having M4400.

Dell :: M4400 And E6500 Question

Jan 21, 2009

I'm considering one of these two systems for my personal computer as desktop replacement.

I don't need all the style of a consumer laptop, and I don't do much gaming (maybe an occasional game here or there).

I sense that either of these two computers will be high performance and high quality even as a personal computer.

Dell :: Better Build Quality: E6500 Or M4400

Sep 16, 2008

I am in the markey for either an E6400 or an M4400. I like the power of the M4400 and the looks but I have heard some stuff about the lid not being as sturdy as it looks.

Is it made of metal as the lid of the E6500 is?

Which is a more durable laptop in yor opinion?

Dell :: E6500 And M4400 Motherboard Swap

Dec 19, 2009

I have just received a refurb E6500 from the Dell outlet and felt as if it wouldn't be powerful enough for engineering (found an M4400 on the outlet a day after I bought the E6500 that would have fit my budget ).

So after reading some reviews and looking at some pictures I have decided to do a motherboard swap with an M4400 (and if everything works out make $60 from it all too!)

Dell Studio 1737 :: Eject Soft Touch Button Don't Eject CD Whilst In Vista

Jan 12, 2009

I received my Dell Studio 1737 only a few hours ago and the immediate problem I've found is that Fn+F10 and the eject soft touch button don't eject a CD whilst in Vista.  They work fine in the BIOS or Diagnostics Utility but don't work when the machine boots up into Vista. 

BIOS is showing as A04 and the latest available on the Dell Drivers website is A02

Dell :: E6400/E6500/M4400 Touchpad Tap Zones

Mar 17, 2009

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

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 :: Putting A Refurbished M4400 Motherboard In A Latitude E6500. Worth It?

Dec 22, 2009

I am very curious with this Frankenstein-ish upgrade. I have seen both the Precision M4400 and the Latitude E6500 up close before and I do realize that both laptops use pretty much the same lower chassis and other modular internals with the only difference is the screen and screen bezel and touchpad unit.

With the exact port locations the same. Is it worth it to get a refurbished M4400 motherboard and swap it with a Latitude E6500 one and putting it in a fully working Latitude E6500?

The reason I ask about this is a friend of mine's mother works for a company that resells their ~1 year old Latitudes for a really cheap price (I think Latitude E6500's go around $250-$350 a piece!) and replace them with newer Latitudes and (rarely Precisions) from Dell the following year.

Dell :: Native Biometric Support Window 7 And M4400/E6400/E6500

Sep 29, 2009

Just logged on to dell's driver site. WOW, new drivers dated yesterday for fingerprint. Finally i'm getting native windows 7 bio support for my M4400. Downloaded and installed.

No, nothing, nada, shaite. Still no support. This is ugly. Just read online that Dell listens and now you can get Inspiron 10 with Moblin. What about business users that scream for native bio support for latitude and precisions. Dell needs to shape up on this point.

Dell :: Latitude E6400 Expresscard Vs PC Card

Jan 7, 2009

I am having a hard time deciding between the PC card slot and the expresscard slot offered on the E6400.

I own several PC cards and some express cards, so I would probably need an adapter to go from one to the other regardless.

Which adapter is easier to use? There is also the E6500 which has both slots. The only problem is that it weighs 1lb.

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?

Acer :: ExpressCard Size

Apr 17, 2009

Has anyone any experience with these ExpressCards that modern laptops seem blighted with?

For my Aspire 2920, I've purchased a 34mm adapter to provide firewire sockets. It fits the 34/54 socket and sort of works, although I need to look at some software problems.

This is where the trouble starts. The card plugs into the wider slot, but then I attach a full-size firewire connector and its heavyish cable to the card. The card can rock sideways because, being a 34 mm card in a 54mm wide opening, there can be 20 mm of sideways movement at the front while the back is held by the internal connector. Plugging and unplugging the firewire connector wobbles the card in the slot and it is obviously connecting and disconnecting rapidly without going through the software remove process.

The whole mechanical arrangement seems hopeless. The card isn't secure and there is no button to unlock and remove the card like on the old pcmcia slots. I suppose I could carve a 20mm piece of something to wedge the card into place, but maybe someone here knows how it should be done.

Surely the ExpressCard system can't be designed to be as bad as this?

Sony :: ExpressCard SSDs For New Vaio Z

Apr 28, 2010

As a proud Vaio Z owner (and at the same time a poorly payed PhD student), I opted for the cheap Z with the 128GB SSD and I am already almost at full capacity.

I am looking for someway to expand my available storage. SD cards would be one option but high capacity ones are expensive, read/write speeds are not that good and I have had reliability issues with most removable media I've used in the past so I would not want to put my work-critical files on them.

I have come across these expressCard based SSD drives: Wintec FileMate 48GB Ultra ExpressCard Solid State Drive 3FMS4D48M-WR - PCI-e, Mini USB 2.0: Electronics

that seem to provide relatively good performance. However they seem a bit unreliable from the reviews, so I am still not particularly keen on getting one.

Has anyone come across any viable alternatives to the above drives?

Apple :: Expresscard Flash Reader

Aug 19, 2009

I bought one of these for my mac , it fits in the slot fine and you have to push it in until it clicks and is flush with the mac, but when i insert a flash memory card and pull the card out it pulls the entire reader out as well.

Now normally to remove the expresscard reader you press it in until it clicks and is spring loaded and pops out so you can remove it.

But why when i remove a snug fitting memory card is the entire reader pulling out , unless i use one hand to keep the reader in place as i use the other hand to pull out the memory card , is this normal?

Sony :: Expresscard ESata Conroller Installation

Aug 6, 2009

I have bought a Condor 2 X eSata 34mm Express Cardbus Controller for use on my Sony Vaio SZ79N which is running the 32 bit version of Vista Professional.

When I try to install using the supplied installation CD , I get the error message No JMicron JMB36X SCSI adapter found! Setup program will terminate.

I have downloaded what seem to be the latest drivers form their web site but can't install from them either.

what I need to run, or what settings I need to add/change or whatever to get the eSata Expresscard up and running?

Sony :: Vaio FW Expresscard ESATA In Windows 7

Sep 23, 2009

I recently bought an FW490J and wanted to add eSATA capability to it. I ended up buying an AKE BC338 because it was the only one that didn't have anything sticking out of the slot itself. However, I can't seem to get this card to be detected by windows.

Actually, i got it to detect once and only once, and after that there was nothing. Has anyone gotten expresscard eSATA working under windows 7? What am I doing wrong? I know this card works because I tried it on another laptop, also with Windows 7(detected and drivers installed).

Lenovo ThinkPad W Series :: W540 ExpressCard Ethernet Adapter Not Getting Recognized

Jul 29, 2014

I just got a W540 running Windows 7 x64 at work.  I have an ExpressCard ethernet adapter (A Belkin f5u250), and I'm having trouble getting it working.
I used this card on a W510 running Windows XP for years with no issues.  I can still plug it into that laptop and have it work just fine.  However, when I plug it into the W540, nothing happens.  Windows does nothing.  It doesn't act like it's trying to identify hardware, go find drivers, or anything.  Nothing shows up or changes in the device manager, either.
I've tried doing the "add legacy hardware" thing in device manager, but I've had no luck with that, either.  If I do an autodetect, it doesn't find anything, and if I manually browse to the driver, it then brings me to a list of devices, and the list is empty.
Is there something special I need to do to enable the expresscard slot, or enable plug and play for it, or something?

Dell XPS L511Z :: Keeps Trying To Eject CD / DVD

Jan 3, 2015

I bought the laptop 3 years ago (the warranty was expired). After receiving the laptop, a few months after, the eject button stopped working. I had to right click the CD/DVD drive icon in Windows and choose "Eject". At that time, I thought the problem was not a big issue. I don't often use my laptop.

The problem started a month ago, I got a blue screen of death in Windows 7...Dec 30th, I decided to upgrade to Windows 8.1. I have gone to the Dell support page to update all my drivers (including the BIOS). However, the eject button is still not working.

I had a black screen in Windows 8.1. The Error message was:
Windows Boot Manager : File: BootBcd
Status: 0xc00000e9 Info: An unexpected i/o error has occured. If you continue to receive this error message, contact the hardware manufacturer.

When I turn my laptop on, there is a black window and it keeps trying to access to the CD/DVD drive. Unfortunately, I can't get to the Bios in order to change the setting.

I recently purchased the studio xps 16 and did a clean install.

Every one of the touch buttons works like the sound buttons, but for some reason the eject button will not respond, and i have to go to my computer to eject a disc every time.

What was also missing was that when i adjusted the volume level, no bar would come up on my screen showing me what level it was at. Although minor problems, I was wondering if it is possibly a driver that i haven't downloaded?

Dell :: Studio 1535 Won't Eject Disc

Mar 12, 2009

I've had a Dell Studio 1535 for a couple months now and have had no problems with it at all. In the past couple weeks I've been backing up my dvd's and have done them all so far succesfully until now.

I put a blank dvd disc into the slot loading drive and it sucked it in just like it does every time. When I click start to begin burning I get a message from the program that there is no disc in the drive.

I go into my computer and right click on the e: drive and select "explore" and it says "please insert a disc into the drive". So for some reason the blank dvd disc isn't being read and the computer doesn't acknowledge that there is a disc in the drive. I've tried many methods to eject the disc but all have failed........................................
