Jun 11, 2011

i have one  dell inspiron 910 laptop.

In the surface I can read :  4835d  X860 . I am searching since some days ago and i can´t find this piece or similar to replace.

Dell Inspiron 1545 :: Won't Power Up - Hard Drive Failure

Nov 5, 2014

Unit powered up fine before, no issue's....worked like a champ until drive failure.

Had a hard drive error code, replaced w/ upgraded 500GB from 320GB. Computers are not my acumen although I found that I can take them apart and put them back together w/o issue-so far. Rebuilt my old Toshiba Satellite base, top, charger jack, screen, perfectly!  It would be the drive which slides in on the left,, held by two screws, not the disk drive unit.

Powered up fine, than several minutes later powered off. Charger is fine, I replaced the charger jack, still won't power up.

I broke the WLAN white connector, pulled the male end off the board by accident., black OK. It  broke when I went to replace the charger port. That wouldn't cause it to not power up though right?

I replaced the complete charger port board, not just the port. Seems something happened after I replaced the new driver card

Dell XPS 17 L702x :: Error Message - Driver Power State Failure

I have a XPS 17 ( L702x) system which is about 1.5 years old. I am getting an error message which states; Driver_Power_State_Failure .... The monitor/screen is also flicking from time to time.

Also, I have recently upgraded from Win 7 to Win 8; could this have contributed to the problem? It was working perfectly until this up-grade.

Dell :: Inspiron 15205 Sound From Intergrated Sound Chip

Oct 1, 2009

I have a Dell Inspiron 1520 with 8600GT. I wanted to buy a 5.1 speaker set but it would be of no use as 1520 does not have 3 audio jacks while the 1525 and XPS 1530 has 5.1 output.

I was just wondering, if it was possible to somehow get an extra audio jack outside the laptop by checking if a header pin for a third audio jack exists on the motherboard since the audio chip is HD audio and motherboard design would be similar to 1525 and XPS 1530

I lot of people have openend up their systems and taken a look at the audio circuitry to fix the static noise coming from the headphone jacks. Did anyone notice if a third audio jack could be soldered to the motherboard to get 5.1 audio.

Lenovo P/Y/Z Series :: Driver Power State Failure On Windows 8.1

Apr 15, 2014

Every 5 to 10 minutes after startup during a small period the laptop returns a blue screen with this message DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE. 

It’s so devastating to have to witness this every time again. I thought I bought a reliable laptop but now I have doubts. What can I do to stop this. I have looked through the other messages but I can’t find the right solution for my problem.

Lenovo T400 / T500 :: T430s - BSOD (driver Power State Failure)

Oct 31, 2013

I'm experiencing regular BSODs on my T430s / Win7 when going into sleep mode (Fn-F4). The error message is driver_power_state_failure. This happens almost every day.
I know this is quite a common issue (I also had it with an older T500, but not on T420). After googling around, I've discovered WinDBG and the way to identify the faulty driver that is causing the problem.

However, I couldn't install the tool - neither the debuggers package (referenced from, nor the toolset+.NET framework from the Microsoft website. The former keeps exiting the installer without any messages (although Remove Programs dialogue shows the thing installed, there appears to be no program to run), the latter fails to install without any diagnostics (tried installing debugging tools only, tried installing the complete package - same outcome).
So, need to analyzing the memory dump and identifying the faulty driver? Which file is needed for that - the complete memory dump (from /Windows/ folder, ~500 MB in size) or the minidump file (from /Windows/Minidump/ folder, ~700 KB in size)? Or both?

HP Mini 210-1060EV Display :: Black Border - Screen Shifted Down After Power Failure

Jun 19, 2013

HP Mini 210-1000 ... Actually it's HP Mini 210-1060EV PC  
From product specifications: Display: 25.6 cm (10.1") Diagonal WSVGA LED HP BrightView Infinity Widescreen Display BID (1024 x 600)
Battery has been dead a long time. My display drivers  and BIOS have recently been updated from HP website. After a power failure and a restart, the display looks weird. It was shifted about an inch downwards with a black border at the top, over which the mouse will not go, and the taskbar is not visible as is off the bottom of the screen.
When I go to Screen Resolution from Windows by right clicking on desktop resolution is set as 1024x768, when I click on Advanced Settings, Monitor tab,  Monitor is set as Generic Non-PnP Monitor (1024x768 60Hz). When I change to 1024x600 it looks blurry and stretched vertically, but the screen is still shifted downwards with black border on top. 
When I enter Intel Graphics Settings I can do the same changes as in the Windows dialog box (640x480, 800x600,1024x600,1024x768).  

In the Aspect Ratio Options when I select Fullscreen (No-Border) the  Black border is fixed but the screen still appears streched vertically but the screen is cut off at the bottom with no Taskbar visible. Re-installed graphics driver as well as a few Monitor Type Drivers from windows, nothing changes. When I turn the notebook on, the HP Quickweb screen also appears as a 1024x600 stretched vertically with no black border at top but going off the display at the bottom.
It appears that  Windows and Hp Quickweb see the display as 1024x768 60Hz after the power failure. Before that, I had installed some Windows Updates but nothing related to Display drivers. I only had a System Restore point from earlier that day (very low free hard drive space?) but that didnt do anything.
Guessing it's a registry/driver problem since no pixels are bad and the black border on top is fixed in Aspect Ratio Options when I select Fullscreen (No-Border).

HP Compaq Presario CQ61 Display :: Black Screen On Power Up - BIOS Corruption Failure?

Nov 15, 2012

I have a Compaq Presario CQ61 Product: VM9496Q2X Model: CQ61-319WM, that has a black screen when I power up.  The wifi button stays red and the caps lock flashes twice.  I believe this indicates a BIOS corruption failure.  I have tried resetting by unplugging and removing the battery, and holding the power button for 30 seconds.  I have tried the f8 key and the esc repeatedly at power up. I have also tried pressing the windows and B key along with the power key but nothing worked.

Dell Inspiron 7720 :: Can't Boot After Bios Update Failure

Feb 22, 2013

I have an Inspiron 17R SE 7720 running Windows 7 64-bit Pro which has been working fine, but I was thinking about getting an mSata flash drive to cache the hard disk, and reading on this forum discovered that my A01 bios version wasn't up to the job, so tried to update the bios tonight.

I downloaded the 7720A12.exe from the Dell site but wanted to backup my bios first.  Again searching this forum, I saw a post that said there was a backup option when running the exe.  Wrong.

Running it from within windows it immediately said it was going to reboot (I wasn't given an option!).  My laptop powered down as if doing a restart, but immediately hung. 

There was nothing but blackness on the screen, no text, no beeps.  It appeared to be stuck in a boot cycle, as the screen back light was coming on, and off, and on, and off etc, for 10 minutes straight. 

I powered down and powered up and I get the dell logo and can enter the bios setup, but after that, no matter what I do, I get a dos based "BOOT MENU" with just these options on:

Network Boot <- does nothing except messes up the display of this menu Setup <- loads the bios settings Diagnostics <- runs a diagnostic program which tests the hardware and reports all tests pass Change boot mode setting <- does nothing except messes up the display of this menu

I can't get passed this menu.

I've tried booting from a DVD - both a Windows 7 installation disk, and the Dell recovery DVD I created when I first got the laptop, neither DVD boots, and apart from buzzing the DVD drive, don't have any effect at all. 

Both disks have been tested in another Inspiron laptop I have, and I also set the boot priority order in the bios so that DVD is the first item in the list.

I've also tried a bootable USB stick, but no joy there either.  The light on the stick shows it's being accessed, but I still end up at the Boot Menu above.

Dell Inspiron N5010 :: 7 Beeps - CPU Crash Test Failure

Dec 5, 2013

The 7 beeps means CPU crash test failure and the processor needs replaced.

Unfortunately, our laptop is out of warranty and Dell will charge me to have the processor replaced. My son has learning disabilities and requires this computer as it has programs that he needs for school that we don't have the disks for. I'm incredibly frustrated that Dell will not fix the processor without charge. After the very long and frustrating discussion with the Dell representative, we have decided that we will never purchase another Dell product. I will not be having the laptop fixed as I refuse to pay for repairs for an inferior product. If it was to be fixed and overheated again and damaged the processor, they will only provide a 90 day warranty for the replacement processor.

I will now have to purchase another laptop for my son and try and obtain the programs that he needs through the school board. However, all of his voice files are lost and he will have to spend hours retraining the new programs which will cause him much frustration.

Dell :: Mobile Broadband 5600 Chip

Apr 29, 2009

Dell announced, a few weeks ago, a new replacement for the 57XX and 55XX Mobile Broadband MiniPCIe cards that they are installing as integrated WWAN in select notebooks.

The new Dell Wireless 5600 Mobile Broadband card is based on the Qualcomm Gobi chipset, and therefore supports all major NA carriers (CDMA and GSM/HSPA), and all global UMTS/HSPA bands.

As a result, you can theoretically use this one integrated device on AT&T, Verizon, Sprint, O2, Telus, Rogers, Fido, T-Mobile, or any other EVDO or HSPA service globally, just by activating with the provider (CDMA/EVDO) or using the providers SIM card (GSM/HSPA).

Dell XPS 15 :: How To Configure On-chip MSata Encryption

May 24, 2014

I have just purchased an XPS15. I understand that the mSata drive (a Samsung 841 512GB) supports on-chip encryption, however I'm struggling a bit to understand how to enable this. I have read some posts which seem to suggest that it's as simple as going in to the BIOS and configuring the "HDD Password", option in the security section, however this seems just a little too easy (I was expecting to have to create a public/ private keypair or something to that effect).

How to authoritatively confirm whether this is indeed the correct way to configure encryption on the disk? Or is this just a basic BIOS level password which somehow protects the disk simply by virtue of the fact that it won't allow the machine to boot unless the correct password is entered?

I keep my laptop plugged in all the time  and therefore do not run it off the battery.

Dell Inspiron 7720 :: 4 Beeps On Start Up (system Timer Failure)

Oct 18, 2014

I've had this laptop for 2-3 years and It had a motherboard issue within the first month of getting it, I got a new motherboard and all was dandy, but now there is apparently a system timer failure. The only thing plugged in to it is my charger and the last time I used it I didn't even have internet I just watched a few shows that I had on it and then I closed it when it was running out of power. When I hit the power button it seems like its going to start, and the buttons on it light up and then it starts to beep four times then a break then repeated four times. Nothing appears on the screen.
