Dell :: Inspiron 5160 HDD Capacity

Feb 26, 2009

Is there a BIOS limitation on the 5160 for HDD capacity? I had to replace the drive and it is seeing a 160G drive as 70G.

Dell :: Inspiron 5160 Display

Apr 6, 2010

My display is not working on my Inspiron 5160. The image is there but very faint. When hooked to an external monitor everything displays properly on the external monitor.

What I am leaning towards is to first replace the LCD inverter. Not sure if I would spend the money on a whole new display for this old of a laptop.

It had been having a over heating problem before the display went out. I took the cooling fan out and cleaned out all the dust mat from the fins that were blocked. Now the fan seems to be keeping it cool, but the display did not come back.

Dell :: Inspiron 5160 Screen Backlight

May 15, 2009

First off before I get into the problem I want to say that I am an experienced computer technician having worked on hundreds of laptops in the past. So I'm very familiar with the problems and solutions for them.

I just want that disclaimer to be up front that I'm not a rookie seeking laymans terms or solutions.

Anyway, that aside. A customer dropped off an Inspiron 5160 last week. The system wouldn't half power on he said so after testing, I determined that the AC jack was 'broken'. Sure enough after disassembling the computer I could see on the bottom of the motherboard where the AC adapter had been knocked loose.

I replaced the motherboard and immediately noticed that the screen would display the BIOS Dell logo for about 5 seconds, and then cut off.

With a flash light I could see the data images on the screen, just no CCFL light from the bulb to brighten the screen.

Dell Inspiron 5160 :: Fan Goes To Full After Standby

Dec 21, 2004

I've noticed that after I bring my 5160 back on after putting it in standby, the fan kicks on at high speed and stays on until I power down and restart. Is that a BIOS problem or hardware and what can I do about it?

Dell Inspiron 15R 5520 :: Battery Capacity At 83%

Apr 5, 2013

I've had this laptop for just over a month and the battery capacity is only at 83% (tested with Dell Support Center). A couple of days ago this was at 87%.

If this is normal for the battery to lose capacity so quickly (nearly 20% in just over a month seems a lot to me..) or should I consider asking Dell for a replacement?

Dell :: XPS 15 9530 - Extra Capacity HDD

Jan 21, 2015

I'm a photographer, and bought an XPS 15 9630 to do my photo editing. The machine came with the 30Gb mSATA and 1Tb HDD, which wasn't nearly enough for my needs. I've successfully fitted a Samsung 1Tb mSATA, but I would like to upgrade the other drive also. At the moment I have 2 1Tb hard disks, and 2Tb total storage. (After a fair bit of fiddling in BIOS)

I have a Seagate Spinpoint M9T 2Tb disk which I would like to use,but when I fit it, it didn't show up in the BIOS or O/S. It works fine in other laptops. The disk that came with the laptop is 6mm, this one is 9mm, but seems to fit fine. The disk shows up if I remove the mSATA.Is this a problem that can be overcome?

Dell :: XPS M15309 Cell BatteryReal Capacity

Aug 25, 2009

I just received a Genuine Dell XPS M1530 9 Cell 85Whr Battery. Now i plugged the battery in and it is now fully charged but i am confused as the capacity is at 69/66whr(105%).

Isn't this battery meant to be 85whr? Is this normal as i believe my other battery which is a 6 cell is at 52/50whr(103%) and that is a 56whr battery. If so that sorta sucks a fair bit considering im loosing almost an hour of run time just in calculations the same as HDD Sizing.

Dell XPS 12 :: Battery Capacity Showing As Only Holding 75%

May 1, 2014

Just recieved my haswell xps 12 yesterday, overall the machine is great, but I have one outstanding issue that has just made me call dell support to return it . The battery life is showing as only holding 75% of it's design capacity in the my dell software and widows 8 battery report. As battery life is one of the major reasons I'm upgrading, I don't think I can put up with the battery being so degraded at this stage, and I'm not getting anywhere near the stated time in the various reviews.

HP/Compaq :: HP Pavillion Dv6345us RAM Capacity

Jun 26, 2009

if it is possible to install more than the 2 GB of RAM that this laptop is listed as the max.?

I've been told that if you flash the BIOS to the latest version, you can install
(2) 2 GB memory sticks and the laptop will recognize 3 GB for Vista 32-bit or 4GB for Vista 64-bit. Also, you must ensure that the memory conforms to certain specs.?

Is this true, or am I stuck with 2 GB max.?

Sony :: Re: VGN-S260 Maximum Hard Drive Capacity

Jun 17, 2009

I have a Sony VGN-S260 laptop. I got it fixed and installed a Western Digital 250GB Scorpio Blue EIDE hard drive. I updated to the latest bios available and also installed WINXP SP3. The HDD is only detected as 137GB on the bios and 128GB roughly on windows. I heard that WINXP SP1 and above supported 48-bit LBA and I did not see an option to add partitions to utilize all space on my HDD. I also tried PM 8.0 and it did not see the extra space. I am in a bind and would like to use my space on the hard drive.
