Dell Latitude 6430 :: Turns On When Plugged In

Mar 22, 2013

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.)

Dell :: XPS M1530 Charger Turns Off When Plugged In

May 9, 2010

My Dell XPS M1530 just shut down on me. When I plug the charger into the laptop, the green light on the charger turns off, just like it wasn't plugged into the wall outlet.

I tried a second charger, and the light on that one just blinks in rapid succession. I've tried booting it up without the battery and with a replacement battery with the same results.

So now my laptop can't start up and I'm not sure what's going on.

Dell :: Power Cord Light Turns Off When Plugged Into Laptop Short Circuit?

May 29, 2010

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.

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.

Dell XPS 15 :: Fan Turns On And Off All The Time

Apr 22, 2013

I'm currently using XPS 15 with i7-2720QM and Geforce 540GT. Everything is fine with it EXCEPT this damn fan that turns on and off all the time and Dell's support gives a damn on that. They blame faulty Geforce and they say that nothing can be done about this...

Are there any laptops that don't have this issue and are very, very quiet in addition (maybe like no fan at all?).

Dell Studio 1558 :: Turns On But Won't Stay On

Apr 14, 2013

I bought a dell 1558 studi laptop and when I turned it on the fans were running like crazy, I installed speed fan and the cores (i5) were at 60 deg at idle. Bought some Arctic silver, cleaned it with the Arctic cleaners and skimmed it on as usual.I replaced the GPU and 2 smaller chips thermal stickers with Pyobia 7wt and slapped it back togther - jobs a good un.

But when it turns on from stone cold, windows starts up and goes to desktop. I can run speedfan and the cores are at 45degs, the fans then kick in successively faster and then the sceen goes black - computer still powered up fans running.If I then restart it takes less time for the screen to go black  - fans now running at vmax..It will happily sit in the Bios screen like a champ, (fans on max mind).

Dell Inspiron 1546 :: Turns On But Won't Boot

Apr 6, 2013

My dell laptop wont boot. When i hit the power button, i can hear the fan whirr, and some of the lights come on, but nothing happens on the screen ( not even the back light) and after about 40 seconds, it beeps twice, then nothing else happens. i tried plugging it into another monitor, but still nothing showed up on screen. i removed the hard drive and tried, but got the same result. it wasn't dropped or anything... it simply didint work one day. Its not my pain pc, so its not a big deal, but for the time being i have no mobile computer. 

Ive done some googling and have tried swapping out each ram stick, and removing AC and battery power and holding down the power button to empty the capacitors. Ive tried to hold f2, f8, f12, and delete upon boot, none of these are having an effect. another thing worth noting is upon turning it off, i hear a high pitches ring coming from the inside that makes short pauses intermittently. it only does this when the AC is plugged in.

Dell Inspiron N4030 :: Turns Off Automatically

Nov 3, 2011

My dell Inspiron N4030 turns off automatically without any warning message and without system shut-down message after some random amount of time. Whenever I turn on the laptop it will work about 10 minutes and then turns off  "boom!" and as I restart will work for 7-8 minutes and again turns off. If I keep on restarting it again and again without giving it rest then the working time keeps on decreasing...

Dell Vostro 1540 :: Turns On Same Time Every Day

Apr 21, 2013

My Dell Vostro 1540 , which I turn off every night - NOT standby or hibernate -- boots up at exactly 14:10pm every day.

If the power supply is not connected it doesn't --- that is until I plug the power supply in at anytime past 14:10pm then it boots up without touching the power button.

The bios is current - looks very basic - and there are no timers or wake up commands set anywhere I can see.

In fact I can't see ANY settings that can be altered by "time".

I have restored factory bios defaults with same result. Is there access to a hidden menu for power settings in the bios somewhere.

Dell :: Computer Turns Off, And Then Keyboard Doesn't Work

Aug 4, 2009

I've bene playing a game (tf2) on my laptop, and 3 times now its turned off, just straight up turned off, and so I turned it back on, and then the keyboard didn't work no matter what I did.

So I called dell and they said some sort of static built up in the keyboard, and to take out battery, and wall plug, and hold power for 15 seconds, and then turn comp on. I did that and it restored my keyboard to full use.

But now twice since then my comp has shut down, and I've had to use that technique to restore it...

This laptop is only 2 weeks old, ? Why is it having problems a mere 2 weeks after I got it.

I mean I'm not even typeing fast enough to make a static charge, in game you only use a couple buttons. Also i'm on tile floors, no carpet at all, I use my laptop on a table although it does get hot.
