Dell :: Inspiron 8600, Straight To White Screen

Oct 15, 2009

We replaced the motherboard. Then it would start up but then shut back down. Swapped out the video card on a hunch, then we got a white screen with an odd color line through it periodically.

We can plug it into another monitor and it works fine so we're getting output.

Would this mean my screen is shot? If so, are there other models that will have compatible screens (17" XPS, for example)

Dell :: Inspiron 8600 Laptop Asks For Password

Jan 6, 2010

I replaced the hard drive in a Dell Inspiron 8600 laptop with a new one. The old hard drive wouldn't boot and failed several Dell hard drive diagnostic tests.

Now a message pops up when the laptop is powered on, "Hard-disk #***********-595B, the system primary HDD is protected by a password authentication system..."

I am repairing this laptop for a client of mine. I don't remember a password prompt before replacing the old hard drive, but now the laptop won't even let me enter SETUP without entering a password.

I have a customer who has a Inspiron 8600. The machine boots to the post screen then shuts down. He told me he was installing the chipset from a dell cd but it was the wrong Dell Cd and wrong chipset for his 8600.  How do you reset the cmos and uninstall the chipset and install the correct chipset.

Dell :: Moving Files From Protected HDD From Dead Inspiron 8600 To 1525?

Nov 7, 2008

When I try to access my files on one of those file transfer boxes that can be used as an external drive it is impossible to read my files or play the mp3s. I had a password on my account and now that the comp it was on is dead I cannot go back and fix that. The 1525 uses SATA and the 8600 had PATA? i think thats right. But the main thing is I am locked out of my old files and not abe to transfer them.

What can I do? 8600 was xp and 1525 vista of course

Dell :: Nvidia's Solution To Defective GPUsBuy Our New Chips

Dec 25, 2008

Nvidia apparently has a solution to the problems faced by many in their notebooks powered by GeForce 8M series, that is, to encourage the OEM/ODMs to buy their new problem free chips. Of course, this doesn't solve the issues faced by current users and there won't be any replacement for them.

Nvidia has come out with a new GPU called NB8E-SET which is essentially NB8E-SE with the new underfill. NB8E-SE is used on many notebooks most commonly advertised as GeForce 8700M GT, GeForce 8800M GS or GeForce 9650M GS. NB8E-SET (G84-751) uses the new Hitachi underfill and is clocked at 625MHz core and 128-bit 800MHz GDDR2/3 memories similar to the current NB8E-SE.

Here's a note from Nvidia to their partners :

NVIDIA is committed to providing our customers with quality products that push the edge of technology and also continuously improve product quality and reliability. To help improve the product quality and ensure smooth and uninterrupted product supply during the current end stage of life cycle, NVIDIA strongly recommends that customers transition to this latest revision of the NB8E-SET GPUs as soon as possible. These latest revision units utilize Hitachi underfill packaging material that improves product quality and enhances operating life by improved thermal cycling reliability.

HP Pavilion Dv6-7002AX :: Obtain Drivers For USB Chips After Reloading Windows

Jan 10, 2015

I have recently installed a 250 Gb Samsung 840 EVO SSD and Win 7 Ultimate (64 bit) on my Pavilion dv6-7002AX laptop (**NOTE** - purchased in Australia) and for the most part it went well. The current problem I have is with the SM Bus controller and USB controller being listed as problematic in Device Manager. It appears to be missing the drivers and I have obtained the hardware IDs listed below.

Dell Inspiron 14r :: USB Devices Are Not Recognized

Nov 16, 2014

I have three usb ports, and none of them seem to be working. Although the devices work on my roommate's laptop, they are not recognized on mine. When I plug my flashdrive into hers, it lights up, but that doesn't happen on mine. I recently reset my computer to factory settings to try and fix other issues including the problem with the usb ports, but the usb devices are still not recognized.

I recently sent in my laptop due to problems of it not being able to turn on, and my battery and a/c adapter were replaced. I was quite happy. However, I do not want to send it back in even though it is under warranty. Since I am a college student, I really need my laptop. If nothing works, I'll send it back in over winter break so I'm not without a laptop during my studies.

My touchscreen is also not working, so how to fix that, here is my other post: [URL] ...

Wondering if anyone else is having this problem with Dell.

I bought an Inspiron 1500 14 months ago. Early on I noted that the adapter dell sent would sometimes slip out if the laptop was touched.

Then at 6 moths I started getting a message on power up -AC adapter wattage & type cannot be determined.- 2 weeks later the battery was drained and the system wouldn't recharge it .....

Dell Inspiron 1545 :: USB Device Not Recognized?

Mar 4, 2013

I have a Dell 1545 Inspiron Computer with Vista Ultimate OS.  Yesterday for the 2nd time, my mouse and printer won't work because I get the error message USB Device not recognized. 

About 3 weeks ago I had the same problem and it self-corrected itself when the latest Windows Update apparently fixed it. 

I know there is nothing truly wrong with the USB devices but am not sure what to do.  If there is a particular driver for this as my backup DVD for this computer has lots of them listed. I am currently running a System Check but am not sure if that is going to work.

Dell Inspiron 14Z :: Ultrabook - Battery Not Recognized For Charging

Dec 5, 2012

Have recently purchased a new 14z. When I turn on the ultrabook, with no power cable plugged in - I get a message telling

me that the Battery is not recognized, and that I should press F1 to continue or F2 to go to the Setup screen. Pressing F1 boots

the ultrabook as normal. It seems a strange message to get. Ultrabook was purchased direct from Dell about 4 weeks ago, and

BIOS is A06 (latest).

Dell Inspiron 1501 :: Battery Not Recognized By System

Jul 15, 2008

Alright I am a long time user of Dell products, and have in the past had problems with them, but they have been easily fixable by either replacement parts or a quick look at a FAQ or messageboard for Info. My INSPIRON 1501 is not recognizing my battery.  The battery is fine (checked it in my brothers computer), and I have checked other people's posts with the same problem and tried the fixes but nothing worked.  I have tried to do the BIOS update (A16) that worked probperly but did not fix the problem.

While watching a movie I got a message telling me that my battery is not recognized.  The battery is stuck at a 97% charge (or so the computer says) and the battery light is not light up (it flashes on sporadically but not consistant at all).  The BIOS did fix the message at startup saying the battery isn't recognized but still if I remove the AC power cord or unplug the computer it powers right down and will not start-up unless plugged in.

Dell :: Inspiron 9300 On Board Keyboard No Longer Recognized

Nov 28, 2009

I'm hoping this is in the right area.
I have a Dell Inspiron 9300 It's upgraded about as far as it can go. I use a desktop for the occasional gaming or rendering but this is my daily driver.

The issue. I took it apart the other day to see if my screen hinge could be replaced and to install a DVD burner. Now it no longer recognizes the onboard/integrated keyboard. It still recognizes the touch pad but not the keyboard. I went as far to buy a whole new OEM keyboard. Still nada.

Dell Inspiron 17 7737 :: Touchscreen Not Recognized After Updated To Windows 8.1

Jun 23, 2014

Brand new laptop 3 days old - model 7737. Came with Win8 and touchscreen was working fine

Have updated to 8.1 and installed other software like office, etc and touchscreen is now not recognised. System says "no pen or touch device"

Device manager also shows an unknown USB device (device descriptor request failed)
Device manager also keeps refreshing (like every few seconds) - sometimes the USB device disappears completely then comes back again as unknown.

I'm sure this must be a driver issue but have tried all those I can find.

Dell Inspiron 600M :: USB Ports Not Working - Plugged In Device Not Getting Recognized

Mar 9, 2013

My laptop's USB ports are no longer working. I believe that some internal circuitry got fried after I plugged in a USB powered device that had its own power supply. I don't remember exactly what I did because it was while ago. I still like to use the laptop, but without USB its uses are quite limited.

When I plug in a device, nothing happens. It is neither powered nor recognized. All USB ports are affected.

Dell Inspiron Mini 10 :: Cannot Charge Battery As (not Recognized) After Installing New Mobo

Mar 25, 2013

My wife has an Inspiron Mini 10 which I damaged seeing if I could upgrade the RAM. So I bought another mobo and fitted it in, plugged it in and turned it on. After so long we were told that the battery was running low and wouldn't charge. After it shut down we got the OLOD and have tried using a USB drive to flash the BIOS using HP USB key utility but there wasn't enough power left in the battery to do anything.

Next I bought a new battery which has about 37% on it but we're still getting the OLOD after booting up and down a few times. 

From what I can gather from searching the web, I need to flash the BIOS but I can't find a way of doing this as the BIOS files from Dell are .exe and isn't recognised when I boot from the USB stick as it's looking for a .bin file.

It has occurred to us that maybe the drivers (we have Win7 32bit installed) aren't there.

What we should do with the remaining battery power? We don't have enough to experiment.

1/ install drivers?... if so how do we do this without a floppy drive or disc drive?

2/Would a fresh install of Windows fix this problem?
