Dell Inspiron 3520 :: Win 8 Pro App Flips Back And Forth From App To Desktop Mode

Apr 23, 2013

I have an Inspiron Windows-8 (pro) laptop, that I purchased on 3/23/13.  One strange issue I've noticed, is when I'm in a Windows-8 app (i.e. Mail), I'll start to move the cursor (via the touch-pad) to perform an action (like delete), and then all of a sudden, I'm "switched" into Desktop mode.  Sometimes the OS flips back and forth between the app and whatever I was on previously (usually the Desktop). Is this a

1) keyboard issue,
2) a touch-pad issue,
3) a Dell issue (defect, or driver issue), or
4) a Windows-8 issue, or
5) something I'm not aware of? 

It doesn't happen all the time, but is frustrating when it does.  I usually have to close the app, go back to the Windows "metro" screen, and re-launch the app.

Dell XPS 13 :: Battery Longevity And Desktop Mode

Mar 13, 2013

I just got my xps 13 on march 9, 2013.  Today I received a battery warning.Frequently connecting and disconnecting your computer to a power source without allowing it to fully discharge may reduce the longevity of your batter. Dell's Longevity mode will protect your battery by moderating the extent to which your battery will charge protecting your battery from frequent charge and discharge states.

I enabled the Longevity Mode as well as the desktop mode. Is there any conflict with either. Should I ever click the option "Charge battery to 100% one time" under the Longevity Mode Tab.These options are new to me, and I would like to take the best care to keep my battery long lasting.I also have Dell Intelligent Display in Battery Mode and Dell Extended Battery Life enabled under the Battery Status Tab

Dell XPS 15z :: Battery Charging Disabled?

Feb 8, 2013

Every time I start up my computer I get the error message "battery charging disabled. Please shut down and wait for system to cool." Or something along those lines with options to press F1 and continue rebooting and F2 to go another menu. I can press F1 and my computer will reboot but the battery light is constantly flashing orange and I have to be plugged into my charger. I've tried looking at the battery meter and running a diagnostic test on my battery and they came out fine but something is up with my battery.

Dell Vostro 3750 :: Battery Charging Enabled / Disabled?

Apr 2, 2013

 I bought a Vostro 3750 last year for my wife and it didn't get used except twice. I never paid much attention to it until I turned it on this morning. I noticed the battery light blinks one white and 4 red signifying it was not charging. How do I enable battery charging on this model? I checked the documentation and did not see anything there. I guessing its the FN + one other key?

Lenovo X220 / Helix Tablet :: Pen Not Functioning In Extended Desktop Mode

Aug 15, 2011

Running in extended desktop mode with my external monitor as the primary, the touch works as input on the laptop but the pen does not.  When I put the pen to the screen of the tablet the pen icon appears on the external monitor screen only.  I have gone to the Tablet PC Settings Setup to set up the pen (and hit "Enter" to change the screen for the input) but touching the pen to the Lenovo screen does nothing to set this option.
I feel if the touch screen will work in extended desktop mode, then the pen should and that I'm just missing something.I'm upgrading from the X60 and the workaround that I used for that tablet was to have two presets - one for extended desktop for the external monitor for everyday use and one for the laptop screen only for when I needed to use the tablet function while docked.  That was a good workaround (although I would see the BSoD on a fairly regular basis) but I was hoping for more with the X220.

HP Envy Dv7-7398ca :: Enable AHCI Mode On Notebook With SSD

Aug 12, 2011

Year old i7 Envy Dv7-7398ca notebook with Samsung 840 Pro x 256 SSD.  Windows 8.1. I updated to the  SSD soon after I purchsed the notebook.   
No issues except the Samsung Magician SSD software keeps flagging me that AHCI mode is disabled and needs to be enabled and I do not see it in BIOS. Nor do I see anything that relates to it in Device manager like IDE or whatever. 
It appears the SSD is not optimizing itself based on the fact it thinks AHCI is disabled.

Sony :: How Can I Enable My Dual Mode Of Video Card After Win 7 Upgrade

Mar 27, 2010

I recently acquire a VGN-SZ491N from ebay and since I don't really like Vista, so I wipe out the hard drive and install Windows 7 Ultimate from scratch. I followed the following steps and everything works fine except for the video card portion.

A. Install Windows 7
B. Install missing / unknown drivers
C. Reboot and install the utilities, in the following order:

1. Sony Utils DLL
2. Sony Shared Library
3. VAIO Event Service
4. Setting Utility Series

After Step C, I reboot my laptop and then able to install Nvidia driver and upgrade the video card from generic one to Nvidia at Speed mode.

But when I manually switch from speed to stigma, nothing happen, so I would like to know what should I do to enable the Intel video card portion and make it work in Windows 7.

Dell Inspiron 6400 :: Battery Not Charging But BIOS Shows It Charging Normally

Jun 19, 2012

I have an older Inspiron 6400 (looks like the 1505) that isn't charging the battery. The bios indicates that the battery is charging, and that it is performing normally. There isn't a red flashing battery indicator, but when the laptop is powered on there isn't any "green light" indication of the battery, either. The AC adapter performs normally ( Charger is a PA10 (90watt) and it works fine on my D800, and charges that battery normally).

What I don't understand is why the BIOS indicates the battery is charging and that the battery is performing normally. However, when I have the system up and running there isn't a green battery indicator light on the button strip. Let me clarify that statement. During the initial boot phase of start-up there is the green indicator light on the button strip, but as the OS finishes loading this light goes out and the battery doesn't charge.

Could this be caused by a faulty Bios update, or is it something with the battery charging circuit of the motherboard? The laptop operates normally when using the AC adapter, just no indication of the battery charging when the OS is fully loaded. OS is Windows XP Pro (SP3).

Dell Inspiron 1525 :: Plugged In Charging But Battery Not Charging

Oct 12, 2010

I have had my Dell Inspiron 1525 for around two years. For the past month, when my power supply is plugged in, the battery does not charge. It has been stuck on 3% and will automatically shut down when unplugged.

I have seen that this is a very common problem, however, when hovering over the battery icon it says: plugged in, CHARGING, where as all of the other posts that I have seen say: plugged in, NOT charging.

I have tried taking the battery out and restarting but this did not work. I also drained my battery and tried to recharge but again, this did not work. My initial thought is that I may need a new battery but I just wanted to check first.

Dell Inspiron 14R :: While In Sleep Mode Goes Into Hibernation / Off Mode In About 2-3 Hours

Feb 14, 2013

I have a Inspiron 14R for about a year and half now.  This computer has done this since day one for some reason:

When I put the 14R in SLEEP mode, the computer remains in sleep mode for about 2-3 hours, then the computer shuts itself off, or goes into hibernation mode on it's own.  The computer has Windows 7 Premiuim.

I have the power saving modes all set too SLEEP, and none in hibernation in any of the selections.  I cannot for the life of me why this computer does this.  I have a Lenovo I bought about a year later using Windows 7 Premium with all the same settings in the POWER section, and while in sleep mode, it STAYS in SLEEP mode, no matter the length of time in that mode. Any setting I need to turn off, and where to find it?
