I have a dell xps 15z laptop and I have replaced the battery because it was not giving any backup. Now i plugged new battery but the battery icon says"0% available, (plugged in, not charging)". Also an indicator is blinking (four times orange and one time white) below the laptop screen (the hinge where screen is attached to the base of laptop).
On on Dell Inspiron(14z)- 5423, I observe that the heating severe, it becomes severe within 15 min after boot-up. Is there any solution to reduce the heating of the deceive. Left side of the key board, in and around the power button and bottom side of the power button, near the fan outlet etc goes to high temperature.
Dell Inspiron(14z)- 5423 severe battery problems.
On on Dell Inspiron(14z)- 5423, I observe that the battery back-up is very very low, I think i get a back-up around 70-80 min. It very disappointing. Does Dell has any solutions to improve this?
Above two problems are really disappointing me and I think that these two issues are really major pros of Dell-5423. It really critical.
My Dell Inspiron 5423 laptop does not power on normally; when I press the power button, nothing happens (no lights, no sound). As a result, I have to press the Embedded Controller reset button at the bottom of my laptop for the power button to work. I don't want to have to undergo this procedure every time I turn on my laptop.
I have dell insp n5010. Recently it started giving 8beeps. It displays when I use external Monitor. I changed the LCD yet the problem still persists. I haven't changed the cable though. Do you think I have problem With the mother board. The laptop has 1gb ati graphic card.
Last night I closed my Dell Inspiron 14z - 1523 when it was almost out of power. Later that night I was not able to turn it on again. Power indicator on the AC adapter is on, but when I do the AC adapter in my laptop the power indicator of my laptop stays off (when plugged in the power indicator of the AC adapter is a little less strong four half a second or so).
I read some topics on this forum and discovered the reset button at the back of the laptop. I tried this option, hope it would solve the issue, but the issue remain...
I just bought an ultrabook dell inspiron 14z with msata 32 GO cache + 500 GO hard drive. But I would change my mSata 32 go cache by another mSata 60 GO. I would like this disk doesn't work in cache but like a real SSD with Windows on it.
How can i disassembly the laptop ? I'm stuck with a part near USB port on the left.
I have 5423 i3 and recently I started having a problem with which was that on almost every boot the screen would be distorted I.e vertical and horizontal lines would appear rainbow like distorted colours and although anything was barely visible I could make out that the screen ws divided into these four grids like appearance each acting like a separate unit by itself AND along with this the laptop would make 8 beeps on boot until window load screen would appear.
When this problem first started I solved it by holding the laptop screen at an angle then powering it on or sometimes pressing the power button and closing the lid and after I would hear win startup sound I would open it and it would work fine, but now since a day or two ive tried every method amd nothing works...
30 minutes ago, it was working perfectly with no issue. I turned it off and after 1 hour I tried to turned on by pressing the power button but it is not working. No lambs no sounds nothing. It is just like a rock.
This week I took delivery of an Inspiron 7000 laptop for my daughter, and some of the keyboard symbols are typing incorrectly. EG when hitting the " key she get the @ symbol, the @ symbol is giving the british pound symbol, and maybe one or two others are incorrect (I am at work at present and don't have the laptop with me to give all the wrong keys).
I just bought an Inspiron 5423 laptop which is an Ultrabook. I love everything about this laptop except that a grinding noise comes from the fan even under very regular operations. It comes and go every 10 minutes and last for 30 seconds. Even my wife can hear it from the other side of the room. I'm not sure if something is wrong with this brand new laptop or it is the regular noise for all the Ultrabooks of such brand. It's really annoying and I'm thinking to return it.
Been working on my laptop all weekend and took an hour break came back and when the laptop tried to boot up got stuck on the dell screen. The screen it is stuck on has the dell emblem in the middle and has inspiron under that and a progress bar that is completely empty. In the bottom left corner is has F2 Setup and below that has F12 Boot Options.
I have tried to turn it on and press F2 all that happens is the F2 becomes highlighted but nothing seems to happen. I can do the same for the F12. I have tried booting it while plugged into wall and when it's not doesn't seem to change anything. I have left it on for a while now and every few minutes the screen goes blank and makes a few clicking noises and a few of the lights on the top corner of bottom part of laptop flash. It then just gets stuck in the same frozen screen.
The laptop has a weeks worth of very important data I need on it....
First of all I have a dead pixel right in the middle of the screen - will be taking this up with Dell tommorrow as its really off putting especially on brand new laptop.
My second issue is with wireless - did have problems initially with wireless disconnects and genrally slow speeds
Im not entirely sure but removing Mcafee seemed to work with the disconnects at least - load of rubbish imo
Now my only other major issue is with wireless speeds on the 1703 card
I seem to max out at about 45mb on all broadband speed tests - while on another laptop I get the full speeds of 80mb on the same server at the same location
Im only getting a link speed of 72Mbps in the networking tab of Task Manager and this does seem rather slow - the other laptop gets 450Mbps (better wireless card - to go with my Asus N66U Router)
Anyway my thought process is that the 1703 wireless card is not up to much - I understand that the 1703 card is wireless and bluetooth - with I think 1 antenna for bluetooth and one for wireless connected to the wireless card.
Now I dont use bluetooth much if at all - so does it make sense to buy just a wireless card and connect the two antennas to the card and therefore losing bluetooth connectivity but gaining better wireless connection
I think I have an Intel Centrino WiFi Ultimate N 6300 in the other laptop
Just bought this laptop. Upon booting up got a Rapid Start error Message. Uninstalled the Rapid Start Driver and downloaded the latest Rapid Start Intel driver from Dell Downloads. Upon trying to install it, I get the following message:
"This computer does not meet the minimum requirments for installing this software"
Intel Rapid Storage is working. I checked the BIOS and Intel Rapid Response is enabled.
I have a Dell Inspiron 14x 5423 that will reboot/restart but will not shut down, sleep, or hibernate. The screen shows shutting down, the screen and the hard drive turns off, but the power light and fan stay on until the battery dies in the laptop. I hold the power button and everything shuts off. When booting, I do not get the windows improperly shut down error the I normally get when I just hold the power button to shut off the computer so I suspect the operating system is shut down! I have tried updating bios to A13, video drivers, Chipset drivers, and Windows 8.1, The laptop passes all diagnostics.I even tried admin command prompt and "shutdown /s /f /h 0" command with no different results. Changed all settings in Control Panel to enable sleep and/or hibernate. I downloaded KB hot-fix which says it is for Windows 7 as another test.
How can disable my internal HDD from Bios version A08 of Inspiron 5423? I cannot find this option in the Bios. I'm trying to boot from an external usb HDD but it fails because of the OS installed in the internal HDD.
How I can disable the internal HDD without having to physically open the laptop?
My husband came home from work saying his laptop doesn't work, being the naturally skeptical wife, I tried to boot it up, thinking I'll f10 (Well, f12 - turns out) the problem away. If that worked, we wouldn't be here. Anyway. 9_9
The laptop turns on without a problem, and presents me with the Dell loading screen. The loading bar is present, but nothing is actually 'loading'. There are two options in the lower right hand corner, "F2 - Setup" and "F12 Boot Options". If I turn the laptop on and press one of these buttons really quick (within a second), then that option will be highlighted, but nothing more occurs. I've tried this for both F2 and F12.
-Boot Options - fails to load the options screen -Setup - fails to load the setup screen -Turning the power off and holding the button down. -PSA ... Pre-startup Analytics...? Didn't work. Spent 5 minutes tapping F12 once a second. -All of the above with and without the AC adapter in. -Taking the battery out (Oi, that was fun.) and plugging it back in.
it's just stuck there, the blue progress bar doesn't show up, I tried pressing f8 but nothing appears. I have also tried draining the battery and recharging then rebooting but nothing happened. It is completely unresponsive. It used to work just fine, just last night I've been playing games and it was working smoothly. But when I woke up and booted up my laptop, nothing was working. By the way, what's the small button underneath the laptop, I think it is the master reset button, because my brother was thinking of pressing it.
i have a dell inspiron 3000s laptop, the machines felt and the screen & data cable are broken so when i power on the machine is giving 8 beeps repeatedly and the machines does not display what could be the problem.
I have a new 5721 running ubuntu 12.04 and the fan runs full speed constantly from seconds after loging in. I am using s fraction of the CPUs' power and still the fan runs full belt and is pretty noisy. I have read that Dell computers are certified to run ubuntu, but this seems to be a problem with no solution after hours of searching the web for an answer.
Does the factory default., only back up the files that were originally on the drive when I first bought it, regardless of what I install afterwards? and the Custom backsup everything? I noticed that Factory Default is 10GB, but the Custom is 29GB. This is confusing because I only install two small programs on top the Factory Default. WHat is the other 19GB?
I have a Aspire 6930G that came with 3 partitions.
After I make my backup image, so I still need the recovery partitions?
