Dell :: Eject Button Not Working

Jun 23, 2009

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 XPS 14z L412z :: Eject Button Not Working?

Sep 13, 2013

I had to re-install Windows 7 64bit after forgetting the password and after I installed all of the drivers everything except for the EJECT BUTTON seems to be working.  I thought it worked the fist few days after the install but maybe Windows updated something and now it doesn't work.  I went to the driver section and tried reinstalling the 7W7T4 driver package and that didn't fix anything.  When I tried to follow the Dell "proper order for installing the drivers" page the drivers it says to install first aren't available for my computer.  It appears that there are lots of XPS 14z and 15z users that have had issues with the eject function. Fr the time being I'm having to right click on my D: drive and click eject to get the CD/DVD's out.

Dell :: Studio 1745 Eject Button Not Working

Jan 1, 2010

1. Eject Button - I can't get either the eject button (near F12 key), or the touch eject button (that lights up) to eject any CD's. I have to go into My Computer, and right click ...and then eject it that way. Anyone know of a way to get the eject buttons to work? Should be able to use one of the eject buttons.

Note: I did try the holding the power button if for 30 seconds, and then rebooted. This didn't work for me.

2. Brightness - what FN + ? key adjusts the brightness of the screen? When the AC cord is plugged in, it's bright. When I disconnect it, it dims. I'd like to adjust the brightness to where the screen is the same brightness when it's on either AC or Battery.

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 :: Studio 1555 Eject Button No Longer Working?

Dec 10, 2009

I've had my Studio 1555 for awhile now, and all is has been pretty fine. However, I just noticed that my eject button for the disc drive has stopped working. I rarely use it, but I have used it before.

I upgraded my bios today from A06 to A08 and went to install my new bluetooth mouse, and the eject button just does not respond at all. I can eject the disc from my computer > right clicking the drive and selecting "eject" so it's definitely the button.

I'm not sure if this is related to the bios upgrade or something else.. Computer spec's are in my signature and I'm running Windows 7 Professional, clean install.

Dell Inspiron 1545 :: Windows 8 - Both Mouse And Touchpad Operate Cursor - Disable Button Inactive

Apr 15, 2013

I wish to disable the touch pad on my Inspiron 1545 with Windows 8.. I have a Logitech wireless mouse.  Currently both the mouse and the touch pad operate the curser.  I want to only use the mouse. In Windows 7 the default was mouse only as soon as the wireless interface was installed. This is not the case with Windows 8.

I've been told to go to the Device driver and select the touch pad under Mouse and other pointers.  The touch pad is not listed. I've tried disabling the PC Mouse compatible but the disable button is inactive.

Dell :: Studio 1535 Eject Button

Apr 15, 2009

Recently (as in, the past couple of months), my touch-sensitive media panel has been having some issues above and beyond the common complaints of the sticking eject button. Don't get me wrong, it still does that, but it adds something new to the mix:

More often than not, the eject button does not function at all, even after it unsticks itself.

Once I boot up, it sticks like normal until I boot into Windows, then attempts to eject about 10 times, and then stops. However, most of the time, it will no longer eject when pressed after this. Touching the button will cause it to illuminate like usual, but the DVD drive does not respond, regardless of whether there's a disk in the drive or not.

Sometimes, it works just fine for hours on end, ejecting every time I press the button. Sometimes it starts out working, but I'll come back to it half an hour later and it will no longer function.

Also worth noting is that when the capacitive eject button does not function, neither does the Fn+F10 keyboard shortcut.

I don't believe it's an issue with the DVD drive itself, as I can still eject via software while this happens, by going to My Computer, right clicking the drive and selecting "Eject" (although this occasionally causes an instant Blue Screen of Death).

However, I don't believe it's a touch panel issue either, because I've had the entire panel and ribbon cable replaced by Dell, and there was no difference. Also, all the other buttons (volume, playback controls) work perfectly when the eject is not sticking.

I also doubt it's a keyboard issue, because this started happening with my old keyboard, which I later replaced with my current backlit keyboard, but the Fn+F10 shortcut still does not work when the eject button does not work.

With all this, it left me to believe that the only thing it could be is software, so I completely reformatted the hard drive, left no partitions intact, not even the Dell Recovery partition, and re-installed Windows Vista 64-bit from scratch, but as luck would have it, it was doing exactly the same thing within 30 minutes of loading Windows for the first time.

I am really out of ideas here. I just can't think of anything else that could possibly be causing this, unless it's an issue with the DVD drive itself, which as I said earlier, is unlikely because ejecting via software works. Also, Dell refuses to replace the DVD drive anyway after I sent them basically this exact same message, because they "do not believe that there is a problem with the DVD drive".

Any ideas on why this might be happening? If it were just the regular sticky eject button, I would not be bothered as long as it worked as normal once it stopped sticking, but this is not the case.

Dell Inspiron 1545 :: How To Set Keyboard

Jan 18, 2015

I got an old laptop (dell inspiron 1545). I bought it charger and installed Windows 7.  then I discovered that he had a strange problem. As if the keyboard is not calibrated. I press a button and he thinks it's another key ... I thought it might be a hardware problem but when I plugged in a USB keyboard had the same problem and even when I uploaded the "virtual keyboard " on screen the problem continued ... I went to the site of DELL and the diagnosis tool indicated the computer is fine (their detection software glitch found in DVD-ROM but it really has nothing to do with it) I still tried to delete the drivers of the keyboard from the computer and reinstall but the problem remains you might know calibration software keyboard?

Now my question, is it possible to put the backlit keyboard from a studio in my inspiron?

Dell Studio 15 :: Jammed Touch Sensitive Eject Button?

Aug 3, 2008

The touch sensitive eject button on my new Studio 15 laptop appears to be stuck on. When I reboot the laptop, the media control lights flash back and forth as normal. However, the CD drive immediately ejects and the eject button light stays permanently on. This all happens the second the laptop comes on - long before it boots into Vista. This makes me suspect a hardware rather than software issue.
None of the other touch sensitive media controls work.
I've tried cleaning the button, checking for dirt under and on the button and rebooting the laptop. I also rested it overnight.
I only got the laptop on Friday.

Dell :: Inspiron 1545 Touchpad, Bluetooth And Blu-ray Not Working

Aug 12, 2009

Purolator dropped off the laptop today and I was quite excited. I tried the Bluray and it's definitely worth the extra money. However, some things are going wrong.

First, the damn touchpad sucks. I want Synaptics back. But at this point all I can do is BAWW about it, so whatever. But when I try to install the drivers, the cursor flips out every time I touch the pad at all. It goes all over the screen in random directions.

Second, my bluetooth doesn't seem to be working. I installed the drivers on Windows Vista and Windows 7, but neither of them yielded results. The drivers install without a problem and then tell me to enable Bluetooth using the radio button. The radio button is already enabled, as Wi-Fi is working, but there is still no Bluetooth option in the Control Panel or anywhere else for that matter.

Third, Bluray movies seem to not work with WMP. What's the problem? If it's not supported, what program do you guys suggest I use for Bluray movies?

Fourth, no matter what I do, Catalyst Control Center just won't install. The drivers are there, but CCC just won't work at all, let alone show up in my desktop context menu.

Dell Inspiron 1545 :: E Folder Is Almost Full - Change Drive Letter Not Working

My Recovery E: Folder is full -- 31.9MB free of 14.6GB - Windows Vista. I keep getting pop ups/messages saying that my E: folder is almost full, and occasionally that I should close my internet browser so I don't lose information. 

Some of them discussions said to go into the E: folder and delete files which should be there (can't access it the folder -- there's only a warning message) or to change the Drive Letter (get a message that says it cannot remove "the letter drive of your volume", and now I'm not sure what I should do next.

My computer was being used by my girlfriend to watch some show.  During her use, my computer "freaked up" and she had to manually shut it down.  Now whenever I turn on my computer, it goes to my normal log-in page but instead of my password boz coming up, a gray window comes up.  It reads:

Dell Inspiron 15 :: Airplane Mode Button Not Working

Jan 7, 2014

I am have recently bought a dell inspiron 15 7000 series laptop. Its only been a month that I have been using it. Everything was fine but my airplane mode button (the button beside F12 and PrtScr which are working fine) stopped working.

Dell Inspiron N5110 :: Sleep Button Not Working

Feb 26, 2013

My Sleep button stopped recently. I installed TuneUp Utilities 2013. will this be a problem? There are three buttons on the top right of the key board. First one is working fine but the remaining two are not functioning. when I press them, button is glowing in white for a couple of seconds and nothing happening.

I generally use my lappy to listen to music and while it plays, I used to put the monitor off to save power. But suddenly it stopped working. Is this a hardware problem or something else? I tried restoring the power options but didn't solve the issue.

And my laptop is taking so much (around 15 minutes) for re-booting. Of course I have installed many programs. I make sure to remove all the un-necessary start up programs. I have a 8 GB RAM. But when compared to other laptops, it is taking really huge time to start!

Dell Inspiron 15 3542 :: Power Button LED And System LED Not Working?

Nov 25, 2014

I bought an Inspiron 15 3542 laptop and it works fine; the Power button has an LED which never lights up; also, the system LED at the right bottom (front of the laptop), does not light up all the time. It only lights up in white when I start the laptop from sleep or shutdown. Is this a design flaw or is something wrong with the laptop? I have never seen the Power button LED light up, which is annoying since the keyboard area is always dark without any lights; I have a HP Pavilion which has many blue LEDs on the surface and front of the laptop, so I find it weird not to have any lights on the Dell.
