Dell Latitude 2110 :: Power Turns Off When Closing The Lid
Apr 22, 2013
I am trying to see what might be wrong with the Dell Latitude 2110. When I close the lid power shuts off. You can not turn it back on unless you take out the batter and power supply then plug it back in. The power settings in windows xp are all to never shut off. I also replaced the power jack and it did not change. I did a dell test and it gave me a error 2000-0412 auxilary lcd cable not detected error 0412 and error 0411 lcd board not detected error code 2000-0411. I have a display and everything just have the power problem when shutting the lid.
I did customize the bios, but Wake on Ac is not enabled.
What is occurring is if we leave the laptop not plugged into an AC adapter overnight, the next time the laptop is connected to the ac adapter it will turn itself on. This occurs even with the lid closed.
I suspect the problem is coming from the Auto on Time in the bios. We have the Auto on time set to 12:01am (local). My suspicion is that if the auto on timer is missed, it is turned on at the next possible moment.
Is there a way to set the machine not to auto on if it misses the auto on time?
We are using the A09 bios version, and below is the ini file taken of bios settings from the cctk. (minus the service tag.)
My daughter was using her laptop (19 months old Inspiron 15R N5010) a couple days ago when all of a sudden, all but the bottom of her screen went black, the bottom was all garbled. Then a weird shrieking noise came out of the laptop and everything powered off (it was on battery). So she plugs in the ac power cord, thinking her battery was dead. Computer started to power on, fans & hard-drive spinning, but no screen at all, all black. After a couple minutes, the same weird shrieking sound and everything off again, but that time, a burnt smell came out of the fan exhaust.
Now, with our without ac power, the only thing that "works" on the laptop is the power button LED, everything else is silent. No fan, no hard-drive, no dvd player spinning.It's out of warranty, unfortunately, and hse needs it for class. I've fixed laptop before, actually on 2 occasions I replaced motherboards on other brand laptops without any issues... but while looking at the inside of the N5010, there are 2 boards inside, the mother board, and the power/ac/wan board...
Have a Latitude E5420 and the screen suddenly turn dark. Still can see a bit but sometimes will return to the normal for while. Is this because of the parts has lose? Should change the monitor? Or related to the driver?
I have a dell inspiron 15r 5521 laptop. Yesterday when I tried to turn it on it won't boot, even the POST or the BIOS won't show up. I removed the battery and power supply and press down the power button for a long time and repeated it a lot of times too but no luck. I removed the HDD, RAMs and the CMOS battery and kept it that way for 5 mins and put them back in but it was still the same. I noticed that whenever I enter the ac adaptor into the laptop the fan moves for like 100millisecond and the light on the caps lock button lights up for the same amount of time then it all goes silent. Same happens when I press the power button with only the battery inserted.
All what happens when I try to turn it on is that the power indicator light on the laptop turns on(white color, which is the normal color for this laptop), and that's it. The light don't blink or anything at all. No beep sound. The fan, HDD everything remains silent. Only that light stays on until I unplug it from ac and remove the battery. Pressing down the power button doesn't turn it off either. No other indicator light such as the wifi's, hdd's, battery's light doesn't turn on.
I have a Dell E4310, about 2 years old. When I connect the charger just to a power socket the green light on the charger comes on but when I plug the other end into the laptop the green light on the charger goes off, I have taken the battery off the laptop and it still does the same thing, and in both cases the laptop will not power up and no light appears on it.
So last night my laptop was running fine on battery power, but then it was running low, so I plugged in the power cord. Nothing happened. Since the adapter at the laptop end was falling apart and duct-taped anyways, I figured it was just conking out, but then I saw the indicator light on the power brick was off.
With some experimentation, I found that if I moved it to a different outlet, the light would come back on, but if I plugged it into my laptop, the light would die, and I would have to again move it to a different outlet (the same one as first would work fine) to get the indicator light back on. It works in other Dell laptops. Other adapters do the exact same thing.
So I'm guessing there's a problem with my laptop wiring that's causing a short or something. (Apologies for my shallow electrical knowledge.) But it was working last night on battery power. Until the battery died completely this morning, it would power up. So it's not an electrical problem that kills the laptop.
.After I push power button, one of 3 lock lights, the A lock flashes blue, and a steady blue power light occurs to right of keboard, for about 5-7 seconds, then turns off after a soft high pitched beep.. The computer did get hot before this occurred. Tried getting new power cord because old one was not correct one. Tried booting up with and without battery & did not work. Screen never comes up.
I have a Dell Latitude D800 that will not power on. When the power button is pushed the green power indicator light comes on, the CDROM spins for a moment, but then nothing happens, there is no BIOS information displayed, no power on self test, no Dell logo. It just sits there with the green power light on.I have tried removing the power & battery then pressing the power button for 10 seconds (actually, I have tried as long as 60 seconds). I have tried to turn on with the power connected but not the battery. I have tried removing the connector cable for the power button and the connector cable for the display and then reseating them.
I bought a brand new Lenovo Z580 Ideapad 2 months ago and now I am experiencing abrupt shutdown. I work for sometime and suddenly it automatically shutsdown (it doesn't show th shutting down progress instead it turns powers off the laptop at that instant). Here are my specs:-
Model:- Z580 RAM:- 4GB Processor:- i5 3210M HDD:- 1TB Graphic Card:- Intel HD 4000 and Nvidia 635M OS:- Windows 8
About a year ago I had the problem and really didn't get anywhere near fixing the problem. So here I am again hoping maybe someone can help.
Here is the issue,
My Laptop just suddenly died after checking how many mem stick I had.
I turn off my laptop, flipped it over, romoved the mem cover, and replaced the cover and flipped back over.. (I just removed the cover, didn't though anything) When I tried to power it up got nothing. (No lights)
The laptop won't power up even with the battery. I do notice the battery light is lit when it needs charging. I tried my spare battery, it charge it but doesn't turn on.
Right i try switch the D430 its powers on the 3 leds all come on also the power led and hdd led
then before i get a screen or bios it dies (about 3 seconds) can power it back up but same happens ive removed everything i can to just run the bare bones no wifi no BT
when i take the hdd out the led doesnt show when i power up so the board knows its missing ive added some ddr to see if it was the onboard ram still no joy tried pressing F2 and power to get a error code but nothing happens just powers off again
tried external monitor nothing tried litheum battery tested 3v tried without litheum battery tried with and without hdd Also tried with and without main battery just with ac adaptor
I have a dell latitude d531 i cant get it to power on and have no clue whats wrong... I have tried taking out the battery and power on with just the plug but still nothing the power light will come on for about 4-5 sec then shut off again... I think the battery is shot too because it will not charge when i plug in the power cord the green battery light comes on for 1-2 sec then off again and sometimes it will come back on flashing orange.
I pushed the Fn and F1 (which I thought would put it to sleep as I do with my ThinkPad) and it shut down. When I tried to restart later I wouldn't. I push the power button and the power light comes on for ~5 sec, the bluetooth flashes the WiFi flashes and then nothing. If I hold the power button down it seems to do this cycle continuously. If I do the same and hold down the Fn button the 3 lock lights are added to the cycle. I have unplugged the power, removed battery (which shows fully charged) held the power button for 20 seconds to clear all residual power. It does the same on AC or battery alone.
The laptop wont turn on when its plugged in it says it's charging then when i attempt to turn it on it sounds like its booting up but within about 3 seconds it shuts off without the display ever turning on the LED light showing the battery is charging then begins to flash and the other 2 LED lights stay on. I was on the laptop not even an hour before this happened until it died and it hadn't moved after that so I'm not sure whats causing the issue.
I have a Latitude D531 laptop that when I hit the power button, the light comes on but goes off after about 10 seconds. This began when I had it on ansd all of a sudden shut down. One of Dell's people told me to try something but it still shuts off after five or six seconds. I thought it might be a short but am unsure.
i sometimes connect my notebook to the tv and watch films while doing something else at the same time. I tried Nvidias Dualview and Presentation Mode through the Fn+F8 key. But every time i want to watch just the tv and i close the lid - the dualview function turns off and the tv becomes the primary screen. But it gets worse - when i open the lid, the TV is still primary and the laptop lcd becomes the extended desktop.
I have E1705 and I use the 169.04 drivers and I ask you for help - is there any way to make the close lid event only turn off the backlight, without messing up the whole screen settings?
My Latitude D800 laptop recently had trouble to turn on. When pressed the power button (no matter how hrad or hard long to press), nothing happened, totally dead, power light didn't turn on at all. I tried with battery (two batteries) only, AC power only and both, same thing, but sometimes it could be turned on when I waited for a while or came back later and tried again.
i have a number of Dell D600 latitude laptops in the organisation,all identicial. Strange thing is that one of them will not work with the docking station, any Docking station to think of it. this is the error message i get " Your power adapter does not supply enough power to run the attached docking station" press F1 to shut down
I bought a new docking station to improve my workplace at home. Unfortunately I wasn't able to start a system because of warning during a booting sequence : "The AC power adapter type cannot be determined. Your system will operate slower and the battery will not charge....etc". After that waring the only possible action is pressing F1 button to shutdown a system.I connect an AC adapter directly without a docking station, a system started properly.
I have Dell laptop D-610, and i have sixty GB hard disk.
I have 4 partition of hard disk, i used partition magic 8.0 for resizing all partition, during this operation power failed although my bettary was not charged. When I again start my pc partition magic8.0 give me error 626.
Now window is running normal but my one partition is not showing, in partition magic it show PQRS format and unreadable, now I am able to reopen this partition.
I have a Latitude E5520 that is having some strange issues. If I have i plugged in to a power cord, close the lid and disconnect the power cord, the unit shuts off. Sometimes when undocking, the unit will shut off as well.
I have checked the power settings and confirmed that when the lid is closed, no action should be taken.
The battery is fully charged and the laptop runs fine on the battery.
I bought new Dell E6410 (without windows). I installed Win XP SP3 and all drivers + Bios. When I turn off my pc and come after some time, I try to start it but not starting, The power button starts blinking!! I press many times but in vain.
I press FN + Power then it start's, Esc then restart, then it works fine ( During restart it gives one pop message at startup: before windows logo appears that its starting from default image, If I carry again the bios Update, this message will not come anymore).
I tried many Bios Versions (A09, A10, A06) and no good luck. B4 I used Dell D630 and after one month, the nvida card was defective ( I threw it out as scrap and still new laptop).
Do I have to threw this to scarp and lose my money again with Dell???
I have an E5430 that when the power button is pressed will not post every time. It is random. I get the power light only. Holding the power button down until it clicks off and pressing it again on the sixth or 19th time it will finally light off and post and head into boot. I have run the full diagnostics and no problems are found. The diagnostic finds no problems so I am wondering if this is a power button problem or something not tied to the MB. The same thing occurs with different batteries and power adapters.
