Dell Latitude E5440 :: WiFi Disconnect After 20 Seconds - Hardware Switch Is Off

Jan 4, 2015

Another on my growing list of unwelcome "features" of this machine...

Around 20 seconds after logging in after a full reboot my Wi-Fi connection is dropped (having already connected during the boot/login).

I'm using the Intel software to manage the Wi-Fi connection and it says it can't connect because the hardware switch is set to off.  This is obviously untrue.

Only solution I've found is to manually flick the hardware switch to OFF and then back to ON, then it automatically connects.

Seems like a BIOS issue if it's suddenly turning the adapter off for no reason.  I'm already on the latest A07.  Problem does not occur when hibernating and resuming from hibernation.

I previously let Windows manage the Wi-Fi connection but it never automatically connected at all, hence the switch to the Intel utility.

Dell Latitude E5440 :: USB Ports To Stay On When Computer Is In Sleep Mode

Jan 29, 2015

I would like very much for the USB ports (or at least one of them) to stay on when the computer is in sleep.  I travel frequently and hotel rooms have limited power and I would like to keep my mobile phone plugged into the laptop.  I've seen you answer a few questions on USB limitations and settings...

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 E5440 :: CPU Spikes Every 9 Seconds (no Apps Open Or Network Traffic)

Jan 4, 2015

Having done a lot of monitoring of my Latitude E5440 because of fan issues I spotted large CPU spikes every 9 seconds (no apps open or network traffic):

I can see it's caused by a group of "DcomLaunch" services.  My old laptop with same OS, software, Anti-Virus (Avast) does not show these spikes.

Looking at similar problems reported on the net it was down to a third-party service/driver or malware but I have done a full scan and it still occurs in Safe Mode:

I have also gone through disabling as many services and drivers as possible but no luck.  Seems like it must be something to do with power management?

I'm not a gamer as a 25% CPU spike every 9 seconds would be totally unacceptable.

Latest news is that HP is selling laptops with Windows 7 again instead of Windows 8.  I purchased a new laptop in December with Windows 8 and hate it and would like to downgrade to Windows 7.  Is there any option to make that happen?  Do I need to purchase Windows 7 on my own and, if so, will I be able to install all necessary drivers on this laptop (17-e110dx) to make things work?

HP Envy TS 15-j005se OS/Software :: Downgrade 8.1 To Windows 7

Jul 16, 2014

have a HP ENVY TouchSmart 15-j005se laptop running in Windows 8.1 Sinle language. I already have a purchased Windows 7 Professional x64. I tried to downgrade my OS to Windows 7 Pro. I prefer in UEFI installation, so create a OS installation USB in UEFI mode in GPT partition and enabled legacy in BIOS. Then the installer is booting from the USB device and everything is going well till it reaches to the HDD partition window. I can't see my HDD on the installer window. I already have a HDD with 4 visible partition, C (OS), D (Data), E (Recovery) and 100 MB system in FAT 32. i want to format only my C, because D contains all my data backup. I tried to browse intel Storage driver, still it is not detecting my HDD. 
I really want to switch back to Windows 7 Pro.

HP Envy 15-J112tx OS/Software :: Downgrade From 8.1 To Windows 7

Nov 27, 2014

When I downgraded from win 8.1 to win 7 I noticed there were about 11 items with problems being displayed in Device Manager.  These ranged form network and ethernet to PCI , USB and various others.   NVIDIA indicated it could not load until the Intel stuff had loaded first.  That wasn't in DM, it cropped up when I attempted to load some of the drivers manually.
I really don't want to guess at what's gone wrong here but could if have something to do with hardware set up for win 8 being used with win 7 drivers etc?

HP OS/Software :: Downgrade Envy 15 TouchSmart 15-j023ea To Windows 7

Jan 25, 2014

I wanted to downgrade my new HP ENVY 15 TouchSmart 15-j023ea to Windows 7 because it's more familiar/usual to me, but unforunately I've noticed that my laptop does not appear in HP's driver list
Also, recent Envy 15 TouchSmart models do not have windows 7 drivers (At least this is what I've seen)
My laptop came with Windows 8 Installed. I installed my windows 7 on this machine and realised I have NO drivers for it... That's the reason I came back to windows 8 right now, and try to find a solution.
I really want to downgrade to windows 7 x64. Are there any drivers for this OS?

HP 15-g012dx OS/Software :: Devices Not Detected After Windows 7 Downgrade

Aug 14, 2014

My ex has a brand new HP 15-g012dx that came with Windows 8, but has driver support for Win7 x64.She has all the driver files, but none will install; they lack Setup installers as far as I can tell. There is no Chipset driver, so PNP/autodetect will not function. So, how do I install these manually? Essentially, I've unzipped them one-at-a-time to a folder. She has Windows 7 Home x64.
