Dell Latitude D630 :: Touchpad Recognized By BIOS But Unresponsive
Sep 13, 2014
Having problems with the cursor, I have tried various Drivers but to no avail, so i replaced the Palmrest and the problem still exists, The bios recognises the Touchpad, can't figure out were the problem is coming from.
I just upgraded my D630 from 32bit Vista to 64 bit Windows 7 (wiped the Vista off and clean install of 7). It's working very well, but the touchpad isn't fully functional. I have lost the scroll capability. Dell support says they haven't written a replacement driver and aren't sure that they ever will.
I reinstalled my D620 from scratch (ie. formatted the disk) and reinstalled from the Dell supplied XP Pro media CD. I downloaded and installed all the relevant drivers. I have Intel wireless working, the nVidia card working at 1440x900 etc ... However, I can't seem to get the power/battery management to work. The D620 shows its battery light as green when the AC power is plugged in and the physical battery button lights up all the LEDs when pressed when the battery is partially/fully charged but neither the BIOS nor XP Pro recognize the battery.
Similarly, when the AC power is disconnected the battery works fine by itself for x hours but the power cord icon remains in the the taskbar and the battery light on the laptop glows orange as soon as the power is cord is disconnected. The LEDs on the battery itself however light up when the button is pressed on the physical battery. On reboot the BIOS also does not recognize there is a battery present and not does XP Pro.
In other words, everything works as expected of a laptop - except when totally wireless, how much juice/time I have left in the battery - this is fundamental to any portable device.
A few hours prior to the reinstall both XP Pro and the BIOS recognized the battery no problem and worked accurately and without fault - so I refuse to believe this is a bad battery. Somewhere there must be a driver to enable the BIOS and XP to recognize the battery ?
The battery works and both XP Pro and the BIOS were well aware of its existence prior to the reinstall a couple of hours earlier. All I did was to format the hard drive and initiate a totally fresh install of XP Pro - and installed the drivers downloaded from Dell based on the Service tag of the D620.
having issues with my Dell Latitude E5440. The BIOS does not recognise it, I tested the HD with a external caddy and it works fine. I messed a lot with BIOS thinking it could be a settings but had no luck.
I recently bought this 2-in-1 and I love it but when using the keypad the cursor freezes temporarily in between actions so I have to resort to touch to continue. There's a lag of a few seconds (10) that is frustrating when I want to use the device as a laptop. The touchpad becomes unresponsive and I have to wait or use touch to continue...
I sorted my 5315's battery problem (it was the AC adapter), only to find that now the touchpad is quite unresponsive. It won't move smoothly, constantly stopping and starting.
I've played with all the settings I can find, and installed the latest Synaptics XP driver, but Windows seems to see it as a "PS/2 port pointing device" - the laptop doesn't have a PS/2 port, so this is obviously incorrect.
I'm running Windows 8.1 on a Pavilion g6-2123us I purchased in 2012. For quite a while now I've had some annoying problems with my touchpad. And it's been getting more and more common as time continues. When these events happen, the whole touchpad is unresponsive, including the on/off buttion, as if the device had been simply unplugged. I have tried a wide variety of things to fix it including uninstalling and reinstalling the drivers multiple times using the most up-to-date drivers from both the HP and Synaptics websites.I have gone to the "mouse properties" in control panel and used the reset devices which worked quite well. Some times, just putting the computer to sleep for a short period of time will do the job too. However, as time continues, these things work less and less. Could it just be an internal hardware issue with a loose connection? Or, just an overtired device? I've replaced and updated the drivers multiple times, so I know that option wont do the job.
I have a Precision M4700, Windows 7 Ultimate on which the touchpad and keyboard nubbin have become unresponsive ever since I installed a Mircosoft Wireless Notebook Optical Mouse 3000. The touchpad doesn't even appear in the device manager under the human input devices. Pro support at Dell is baffled. I've looked at the settings in the Dell Touchpad software and everything looks OK (e.g., Touchpad is not disabled). It's simply gone. It doesn't appear in the Bios or when we booted from a Windows 7 DVD. We well probably either have to send the system back or replace the motherboard? What is to prevent it from happening again?
My Pavilion TS 14 Sleekbook running Windows 8 did two updates today that required restart for both. I don't know what the updates were, I have it set to autoload important updates. When I tried to "flip" my lock screen to enter my password to open, the screen did nothing but show energy waves around my fingertip. Used the keyboard to open to password page. Tried to pull up touch screen keyboard, nothing. Used regular keyboard to type in password and then the touchscreen works fine.
I have a Dell Latitude E5520 and lately it has been extremely slow, and characters on screen tend to lag far behind my keystrokes occasionally not appearing at all. Sometimes when I click on a button it will lag for several seconds and then go through, other times nothing will happen at all and I will have to click the button again and it works. Recently the laptop was taken on a plane and the in-flight wifi was used, that is the only thing done recently outside of the normal routine.
I have booted into safe mode and the lag still occurs. I have antivirus software installed and up to date.
I went to hp's website and downloaded the new driver. The installation went to the point where it erased the old bios and closed. So, I ran it adian and it said that I still ha the old bios. I tried to run it agian and it claws at the same point. I continued to use the computer. After about a hour I decided to restart the computer. Now the lights on the computer comes on and I can hear the HD start up but the screen stays black and it seems to not post or start windows. All I see is a black screen and cannot get it to respond. Just a warning for other dv8t owners thinking about updating. Posting this from my iPhone
I have a D630 that is still under warranty, but I've been having huge overheating problems with it. (We're talking 160F+ under light load). This is the model with the Nvidia video card.
When I first called Dell, they sent someone to replace the fan and heatsink. That didn't solve the problem. I figured that I was suffering from the notorious Nvidia thermal issue, and they replaced the motherboard. The problem got worse, and they replaced the motherboard again, and the problem got slightly better.
The thing is, I don't actually need an Nvidia video card because I don't do much aside from internet browsing and copying files over the network. I was upset after the fourth time they sent a Dell technician, that I called them and demanded that they replace my Nvidia board with a standard Intel graphics board. They finally agreed.
Yesterday a technician came out with a new motherboard with an Intel video chipset rather than Nvidia, as well as a new heatsink and fan that matches the new board. Now the darn thing is running at 190F at light load!!! it's actually worse than the Nvidia one was!
Do any of you have any clue what the problem might be? I don't even want to use this thing anymore. What's even more interesting is that we've issued about 30+ Intel D630's out to our associates at work, and none of them have any issues. I wonder why it's just mine.
I've owned a D630 for about a year now and have noticed that the bottom of the laptop can get very hot. My dad owned the same model for a couple years and he had multiple hard drive failures. His hypothesis was that the computer might have been overheating and burned out the hard drive.
However, in doing a little research, I heard it's not so much that the computer overheats as it is that the metal frame conducts heat very easily. So while the outside might be hot, the inside isn't at a temperature that's damaging to the parts.
Any experiences with this? Any help would be appreciated. If overheating is a common problem, I'll probably shell out the money for a cooling mat. If it's not a problem, then that's money saved.!
I'm thinking about getting a D630 and installing the 64-bit version of Windows 7 on it. Is there any reason that this won't be an easy process? Do I need any drivers from Dell?
I read here (http://www.sevenforums.com/sound-aud...-no-audio.html) that someone had a problem with audio from a docking station, but apparently it's fixed by installing vista drivers from the Dell website ...
I keep waiting to order my E6400 until all these problems I keep hearing about get resolved. However, it doesn't seem to end. Would I be better off just ordering a D630 and be done with it? These will be discontinued at the end of the year. Right now, it looks like I can save around $300-400 when I configure the D630 similarly. Of course, the D630 doesn't have webcam, maxes out at 4 GB RAM, has a mono speaker, and so forth. But aside from this, isn't it a much more well-tuned machine?
Are the problems I keep hearing about overblown? Will the D630 have its own share of problems?
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.
My motherboard was replaced couple of days ago by DELL technician (GPU problem). Now with new mobo I have GPU temps uder stress up to 100C. Its too much I think. My question is what is your temperatures?
I'm thinking also about copper mod of cooling system, but not sure about thikness of the copper shim for D630, I know that for XPS1330 it is 1.5mm ..
I have considered purchasing a Dell latitude D630. I've looked at online retailers such as liquidation.com, ascendtech.us, ebay, amazon...but so far can't find a D630 at the resolution of 1440x900, only at a lower resolution of 1280x800.
So, looks like the only option is to buy a screen sold individually, and upgrade the laptop manually to replace it.
The question is, is it safe to replace a lower-resolution screen with a better one on a laptop?
I am trying to use a Latitude D630 docked in a PR01 port replicator with a KVM switch. The problem I am having is that the video signal is not displayed using the PR01 DVI port.
The Latitude D630 itself does not have a DVI port, however, when docked in the PR01, the port replicator has a DVI port that will display a video signal when connected directly to a monitor. When the KVM switch is placed in line between the PR01 and the monitor then the DVI signal is not displayed .....
I have a Dell Latitude d630 computer. Everytime i turn the power button to turn on a blue screen will suddenly pop up. It will not bring the dell loading screen up and will not bring up the option to "start windows normal". I have had the battery replaced wih a new one. I might think its the memory card or the screen itself. what to do next or at least on how to get the loading screen up would be great. And sometimes when i can press ctrl, alt and delete at the same time the screen will disappear and come back with the blue screen. And after sitting their with the blue screen after a while the "wifi" light will light up as well with the "blue tooth" light.
