Dell Inspiron 17r :: How To Use Balanced Power Saving On AC Connected

Apr 5, 2013

I was setting my power saving plans on my Inspiron 17r.

Is there any problem when I set "Maximum Performance" next to video, wifi, java script in all plans on AC connected mode?

I see that by default in some plans there is Balanced or low performance set next to those option even on AC connected. Why is that. From my understanding laptop is not running on battery while connected to AC.

Will it change anything if I set maximum performance on "Power Saving" plan when AC is connected? Will it affect my battery, charging time? I'm confused only because of those default settings.

Apple :: MacBook Pros Use Nvidia's Power-Saving Optimus Graphics Tech

Feb 19, 2010

Looks like our hunches about what's inside the next MacBook Pros are panning out: AppleInsider hears that Apple's got new MacBook Pros running that can switch between integrated and discrete graphics automagically, which exactly describes Nvidia's Optimus dual graphics tech.

If you remember, the unibody MacBooks from Oct. 2008 were the first to use Nvidia's GeForce 9400M, a combination chipset/integrated GPU that ridiculously outperformed Intel's own integrated graphics, and the Pro models at the time could switch between power-saving integrated and beefier discrete graphics, though it requires a logout.

Nvidia got cockblocked from making chipsets for Intel's latest-gen chips (read: Core i3, Core i5, Core i7), ruling out using Nvidia's better integrated graphics; Nvidia canned their chipset business entirely. So! Nvidia's Optimus tech works with Intel's crappier integrated graphics that are built onto the same die as the newer Core processors, but even more seamlessly than beforethe computer automatically switches between Intel's power-sipping integrated and Nvidia's monster discrete graphics, depending on what you're doing. No logouts required.

In the demo we saw on a Windows machine, the automatic part of the tech has some drawbacksnamely, it's entirely dependent on software to tell your computer which graphics card to run. But Apple's obviously worked pretty closely with Nvidia on graphics before, so it seems logical they're doing so here, too. Though I don't expect we'll know until the new MacBooks finally arrive, whenever that happens (hopefully, soon).

Lenovo T400 / T500 :: Screen Blinks When AC Power Is Connected Or Disconnected

Feb 19, 2010

I have recently bought a T400. At the moment, it is running on Windows XP, Service Pack 3.
 
After installation of Windows XP, I have installed all the relevant drivers and no yellow question marks appear in the Device Manager panel. However, during the process of installing these drivers, now whenever I plug in our take out the AC Power Plug, the screen goes blank for about a second and then comes back.
 
This problem was NOT there immediately after installing Windows XP and Service Pack 3, i.e. before installing the drivers. I think that it is one particular driver which may have caused this.
 
I have already tried re-installing the Graphic Driver.

Dell Inspiron 1525 :: Battery Will Not Charge With Plug Connected

Oct 5, 2010

Inspiron 1525 - Battery will not charge with plug connected.  Upgraded to current version Bios with no change in error.. Upgraded from 65W to 90W adaptor with no change in error.  Swapped known good battery that had 55% power left and it would not re-charge.  Put "suspect" battery that had 0% charged into another machine and it is now charging.  My laptop will work on cord power and will work on battery as long as I charge it elsewhere.  I suspect that something is wrong with the laptop power interface and it is not allowing the power to transfer to the battery charging function.  Is this a software issue (I thought the BIOS upgrade might fix this) or a hardware failure.  If it is a hardware failure, can I fix it?

Dell :: Inspiron E1705 Won't Power On

Sep 7, 2008

I have an Inspiron E1705 that will not power on. Was sitting in its docking bay when I went to bed and in the morning it would not turn on. Pressing the power button will cause the power and hard drive lights to blink once and then nothing. Pressing the power button with the Fn key causes the power and hdd lights to blink once and the three lock icon lights and wifi light to the left of the power button to all blink once at the same time. The fan is not coming on as far as I can tell.

I have re-seated the ram and tried each stick in each of the slots separately with no success. Reseated the hard drive, as well. The AC adapter is working properly (green light is lit when plugged in) and appears to be charging the battery. The battery is fully charged and shows 5 lights when the test button is pressed. I have tried all of these tests with just the battery and with no battery and just AC adapter plugged in.

Dell Inspiron 14R N4110 :: Will Not Power Up

Jun 9, 2013

I have an Inspiron 14R N4110. It recently died in the middle of a session. After that, it would occasionally power up normally, but now it does zilch.

When I press the power on button, it doesn't even light up. The only thing it does is, the small LED on the edge of the laptop lights up. The LED stays lit and won't go off even if I press the power button. The only way to get the LED to turn off is to remove the battery.  Nothing on the screen. I have tried removing the battery and using just the AC cord, and it does the same thing.

The laptop is barely a year old and, of course, 3 months out of warranty.
