Dell :: Latitude E-Series Or -dockings Provide "power Over ESATA"?

Jun 16, 2009

Does anybody know, if the Latitude E-Series or -dockings provide "power over eSATA" ?

Dell-support says "no" - but the combined usb/esata-plug on the left side should deliver high power, they say.

Maybe it is possible to connect a external eSATA HDD or device without external AC, even if the plug is not official "power over eSATA"-standard.

Dell XPS M1330 :: Battery Cannot Provide Sufficient Power And Stuck Key Detected

Mar 31, 2013

I bought my laptop Dell XPS M1330 in September 2009... I have not had problems with this until now.  Three days ago I turned on my laptop in order to read a pdf file , but I noticed the my file went constantly down and therefore, I was not able to read it... It seemed like the  "arrow pointed down key" was permanently pushed down! So I reboot my lap but I had the same problem. The next day, again, I turned on my lap and at that time the cursor was moving constantly to the left like the "arrow pointed left key" was pushed down!

I tried with Dell diagnostics and this showed me the next errors:

-ERROR CODE 3600:0853 PRIMARY_BATTERY_BAY The battery can not provide sufficient power.
-ERROR CODE 2C00:0423 KEYBOARD-Stuck key detected

When I was testing the keys (of the keyboard) this showed me:

Expected: e048  Read: e050....Expected: (something)  Read e050.... And so on

Should I have to replace my battery and my keyboard???

Dell Latitude D800 :: Will Not Power On / No BIOS Information Displayed / No Power On Self Test

Apr 16, 2013

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.

Dell :: [E6500][esata][RAID Port Multiplier] Raid 1 Enclosure Not Regnosized Using The Esata Port

Mar 5, 2009

Here's my story and, let's say, my analysis:

I bought a generic 2 HD sata2 RAID1 enclosure based on the chipset Silicon Image SteelVine 5744. It can be used in USB or eSATA2. This embedded chipset (named SiL5744) is known (understand "claimed") to auto-handle Sata I/II and host sata2 controllers that not support the port multiplier feature. The HD are two Samsung F1 1To. There's no jumper to rollback to SATA 1.5Go on them, you can only do it by flashing the HD's bios, however we don't need to do it as I wrote just before, the SiL5744 supports SATA 3Go natively.

The enclosure works pretty well with USB, but *not* in eSATA : the E6500 freezes/hangs just after the POST step (a potential driver issue with the installed vista 64bits is not the reason then). As soon has I disconnect the eSATA cable, the system recovers and continues as normal.

What I've tried/done so far :

Both E6500's BIOS SATA mode AHCI and IRRT mode were tested,
Intel Matrix driver and software was updated to the latest version (AHCI and IRRT),
The SiL5744 chip was upgraded to its latest firmware as well (in case of...)

In order to verify the esata cable, the HDs and the enclosure itself, I succeed to :

- Use the enclosure's RAID1 feature when using the USB connection, I could partition,format, and read/write on the logical volume
- directly connect *one* HD (Samsung F1 1To) to the E6500's esata port -(I have a sata2esata cable), Vista installed it and I was able to use it as normal, even the hotswap feature seemed to work fine (I unkindly removed it). I could so test both HD individually this way... On the enclosure hardware side, everything looks fine then.

An IMPORTANT thing : The E6500's ICH8/9-M sata host controller seems to support the Port Multiplier feature *ONLY* on sata port 0 -as a bubble message from the Intel Matrix soft sometimes shows up-, but this is exactly where the internal HD is plugged on the motherboard I found nowhere you can change the internal sata port ID (switch,bios,ect...). I think this is the key of the problem that seems to be a dumb port conflict, because the esata port is in fact the port sata 4 (the DVDRW drive is sata 1, dock's esata is 5 for instance). If somebody knows how to swap the sata port ID, I think I won't be toasted !

Dell Latitude D630 :: Won't Power Up

Mar 8, 2013

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.

Dell Latitude E6530 :: Won't Power On

Feb 5, 2013

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.

Dell Latitude D530 :: Daily Driver Won't Power Up?

Apr 29, 2013

Yesterday the system went down unexpectedly and without proper steps. I pressed the power button and it resumed nicely after running chkdsk.

Today it again went down unexpectedly and now will not power up. The green LED on the power cord blinks when plugged in to the laptop (but is steady 

if not plugged in to laptop).  The laptop is completely dark & quiet.

My battery has been fine but this system is acting the same whether my battery is "inserted" or "removed."

How can I further troubleshoot this without risking damage to my HDD? I have used two different power cords so far (they both do the blinking)

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 Latitude E6410 :: Power Button Blinking And PC Not Starting

Oct 7, 2011

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???

Dell Latitude E5430 :: Will Boot Only Some Of The Time When Power Button Is Pressed

Jan 26, 2015

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.

Dell Latitude E5440 :: Intermittent Power Connection To Docking Station

Dec 16, 2014

I was given a Dell Latitude E5440 and a docking station for my work.  I brought in a wireless mouse and keyboard that I use for input (the reason for mentioning this will become evident later).  The computer and dock were NIB and are ~ 2 months old.  I have a Dell external monitor plugged into the dock via a DVI cable, and use it as a secondary monitor.

One thing I noticed early on with this setup is that the interconnection between the computer and dock is 'flimsy', at best.  If I move the computer/dock on my desk by sliding it around, I lose connection and the external monitor image disappears.

My current issue is related but a bit different, I think.  On 3 separate occasions in the past couple of weeks, the notebook screen has gone black without warning and the system has shut down.  Once I was able to get the system back on, I was able to determine that the cause was that the battery had drained to 5%, and the system had shut down.

What I find odd is that this has happened while the unit is on the dock.  What is even more odd to me is that, apparently, while the notebook has lost power connection to the dock, the video connection to the external monitor remained in tact.   That is, in fact, the main reason I did not notice that the battery was draining.  That, and the fact that I was never shown a warning that the battery was getting low and I should find an outlet.  So, only the power connection pin or pins of the dock appear to be affected.  This happened last night when I left for home.  I had not touched the computer all day, since I have the wireless keyboard/mouse I mentioned above, but I did shut the lid to put the system into sleep mode.  However, during the night, it apparently shut off because, the next morning, when I went to turn it on, I was greeted with a black screen stating the system had shut down unexpectedly and did I want to boot into Safe Mode.  Upon booting, both PowerPoint and Word prompted me to 'recovery' my files that had been opened when the power was lost.

Questions: Why I would not receive a warning from the PC that the battery was getting low, so that I could either check the power connection or have time to gracefully shut down.  That is much more preferable than the system behaving the same way it would if I had simply removed the battery when it was on.

Dell Latitude E7440 :: When Plug In Power Cord Into Computer / Screen Freezes On

Apr 17, 2014

I've had my laptop for a little bit under 2 months, so these are the things I have noticed. 

Issue number 1: When you plug in the power cord into the computer, the screen freezes on what it is currently on. I noticed this issue because occasionally when I plug in my power cord, and try to use the mousepad to select something, the mouse pointer is gone! I have to unplug-replug the power cable to get the mouse pointer to show again. It seems to have to do with the screen

Issue number 2: when I carry my E7440 around in my bad, or have it shut for long periods of time >3 hours (I just simply close the lid), the computer will SHUT DOWN. The thing will shut down completly, even though I simply closed the lid! At first I thought it was just going into hibernate, so I disabled hibernate in my power settings. But nope, even when the computer is asleep, it will occasionally shut it self down for no reason at all.

Just now, I closed the lid on my laptop, and put in in my bag, then walked to my office about 10 minutes away. When I sat down at my desk and opened my laptop, to my surprise, it had shut down by itself! All of my open windows, browsers, and applications were closed, and upon opening chrome and microsoft word, I was greeted by "your browser did not shut down correctly" and "microsoft word has recovered files". This points to the conclusion that it was not hibernates fault, but instead a issue with the laptop itself shutting down when it is put in sleep. This issue needs to be rectified immediately if it is a widespread issue.  

Issue number three: When the computer comes back from hibernate or sleep, the computer is very very sluggish, even when plugged in. It is sluggish forever, OR until the power plan is set from whatever it is to "high performance". upon switching to the previous powerplan from high performance, the swiftness of the system is restored. This indicates to me that the system is throttling itself after it resumes from hibernation, why. This needs to be fixed; many people (myself included) just thought that the system itself was slow and underpowered, not realizing that it was just throttling itself when it emerged from sleep or hibernate.

Dell Latitude D630 :: Battery Recharge - AC Power Adapter Type Cannot Be Determined

Feb 23, 2013

I recently purchased a refurbished Dell Latitude D630 and everything was great. After a few months the laptop would every so often get a message saying:

"The AC power adapter type cannot be determined. Your system will operate slower and the battery will not charge. Please connect a Dell 65W AC adapter or higher for best system operation."

It was ok after I fiddled with it and it would charge normally. Now the battery refuses to charge with my adapter and runs only on AC power. I assumed I just needed a new battery but then something weird happened. I used my girlfriends charger to charge my battery and it worked 2 times, but strangely after the last time her computer started getting the exact same message and hers was fine beforehand. Is the battery somehow draining the adapters? I've never heard of that happening before. What should I do?
