Dell Latitude E6320 :: Freezes Before Can Enter BIOS

Nov 5, 2014

I was replacing my harddisk for a bigger one. after some trail and error with the AHCI driver for Windows 7 installation, suddenly the notebook freezes before I can enter the bios or it even can boot.

Now it is stuck at the DELL logo with text of latitude e6320 series, bios revision A06. With the blue line

I already tried to remove battery and power, but no solution yet.

Dell Latitude E6320 :: Freezes But Can Move Mouse - No Errors Or Warnings In System Log

May 24, 2011

I have 7 Latitude E6320, all with identic Confgiuration and same Problem. Sometimes the Laptop freezes. When this happens I can still click one to three times somewhere, move the windows and mouse, then no Application reacts anymore. I can still move the mouse. It's not possible to start Taskmanager or kill Processe via Process-Viewer. If Process Viewer runs before the Laptop hangs it shows high load at "Hardware-Interrupts" ~30%. If this happens the HD-LED is on without any blinking. The only way to get out of this is to turn the Laptop off.

There are no Errors or Warnings in System-Log (only at restart).

All Updates from DELL (Drivers, Bios) and Microsoft are installed (including SP1 for WIN7). Diagnostic boot runs without Error. the sfc command runs also without any Problems.

What can I do ?.. I want to avoid to reinstall Windows 7 & Software (32Bit) on 7 Laptops...

Is there any known Problem with this Laptop ?( In the last days a few new BIOS has been released .)

Dell Latitude D830 :: Can Enter BIOS But Settings Are Locked With Password

Dec 9, 2013

Recently I purchased a Dell Latitude D830 motherboard as a replacement for the damaged one in my own system.

The seller didn't tell me that the system has a customized bios and a password, instead he announced it as 'password free'. The board is working and I can enter the BIOS but all settings are locked with a password.

As the seller refuses to take it back, I need to reset the system. The first owner of the board is known and I have the service tag ready. Is there any chance to reflash an original DELL BIOS and to reset the password(s)?

Dell :: Latitude E6320 Won't Turn On

Jan 5, 2015

mainly consisting of it shutting down when being moved (even if it is closed).Earlier today this happened again and whilst it normally just turns back on, it won't anymore. I have looked through the dell support info and can't seem to decide whether it's a power or post problem. None of the lights on the laptop are on and when I attach the AC battery, the battery light on the computer briefly flickers, but doesn't stay on, whilst the led on the battery itself stays on (I can't remember if this is normal). When trying to turn it on, the power led, battery led and caps lock briefly flicker and it makes a bit of noise but then shuts down after 2 seconds.

Dell Latitude E6320 :: Keyboard Only Works On Occasion

Oct 27, 2014

My keyboard has intermittently been working for some time. When it works, then everything works as it should, when it does not work, the keyboard is still lit up and the mouse joystick still works, but no keys work. To get the keyboard to work again I have to reboot and shutdown many times and eventually it will work again. It only stops working after shutting down or rebooting. To me it appears to be an issue with detecting at boot up. It seems it could be either an issue with the motherboard, or the keyboard so was or to get some opinions on how to narrow it down to one or the other. I should also add, that when it does not work, you can not access the bios, or anything prior to the operating system loading, so I am 100% sure its not an OS issue. I also dual boot this laptop and the keyboard does not work in either. I can plug in a usb and that works fine.

Dell XPS 17 L702X :: Cannot Enter BIOS Setup

Feb 5, 2015

I have recently been completely unable to access the set-up area of my bios on my Dell XPS 17 L702x laptop. On booting, i keep pressing the F2 key which seems to be registered by the BIOS as the text that says 'Set-Up' lights up. However, instead of entering the setup, the BIOS simply continues booting my operating system. Even if I remove all of the hard drive's, I cannot enter the set up and the BIOS boots to the PXE Setup.

I have tried reflashing the BIOS but nothing changes, the set-up is still inaccessible. I can't even change the boot order using the F12 key.

I really need access to my BIOS and I am all out of options.

Lenovo 11e E/Edge :: 130 - Can't Enter BIOS

Nov 20, 2012

I just bought an Edge 130 and wanted to set it up today. But I just can't enter the BIOS! I keep pressing F1 during the Lenovo splash screen. I've pressed it repeatedly, held it down, I even tried it with the Fn button pressed. Nothing worked.
I've have been working with and professionally supporting Lenovo (and before IBM) notebooks for over 10 years and not once did I have such a problem. This is only the second E-series notebook I have ever had. I bought myself an E525 last summer and had no such problems and at work we have T-, X- and W-series.

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.

Lenovo P/Y/Z Series :: Z580 With Windows 7 - Can't Enter BIOS

Jul 4, 2012

My machine is Lenovo Z580 with Windows 7. Some time ago I accidentally installed Linux Mint on my whole HDD, so all the partitions and files (including recovery partition) were erased. I then installed back Windows 7 and partitioned the HDD.

However, since the incident, I'm unable to enter BIOS. I'd like to change boot sequence, because the laptop wants to boot from network, displays an error, and then boots from HDD and Windows 7 starts. I can access boot manager with F12 during boot, and the entries are (those aren't the exact names of course, except the first one):
1. ubuntu <- yes, that's how it's called. I guess it's a remnant of Linux Mint installation
2. booting from network
3. booting from HDD
4. booting from DVD
5. booting from USB
I tried the following things:
1. pressing F2 at boot. it used to work before the incident, now the laptop ignores it and proceeds to attempting boot from network, displays an error, and then boots from HDD.
2. using Novo button instead of power button, then choosing "BIOS setup" option - the laptop still proceeds to boot OR displays black screen and need to be shut down
3. removing boot entries using Ubuntu via USB stick [URL] ..... - I can't remove any entry, because after using
>efibootmgr -v
no list appears, and when I enter
>efibootmgr -B -b 001
or any other number, I get an error that the entry wasn't found.
I can't flash BIOS because Lenovo didn't provide the necessary file for this model. I also can't sent the laptop to repair because my warranty period ended two months ago.
So, I flashed the file attached here: [URL] .... and everything works now! the "ubuntu" entry has been automatically deleted and I was able to access BIOS and change the boot order.
Before installing ... write down MAC address of your LAN card, because it'll get deleted after BIOS update!

1. press windows key+R, type cmd and press Enter.....
2. in the opened command window, type ipconfig /all and press Enter, find the entry regarding your Ethernet connection and write down the physical address....
3. Flash BIOS update
4. After reboot follow this guide: [URL] .....

Lenovo T400 / T500 :: Cannot Enter BIOS Of ThinkPad T530

Sep 12, 2012

I am unable to enter the BIOS (or the boot device and application menu) of my T530. When I press Enter at the 'Press Enter to interrupt normal startup' prompt, nothing happens. It just ignores my input completely. F1 doesn't do anything either.
Otherwise my ThinkPad is working fine, but I would like to change some settings (especially change the boot device, to boot from USB).

Lenovo ThinkPad W Series :: Can't Enter Into W530 UEFI-BIOS

Nov 22, 2012

It seems I got the same problem that customers have with the T530. After removing the bios password I have no chance to get into the BIOS.
Bios Version: 1.11 (uefi only enabled)
OS: Windows 8 (x64)
I tried:
- Remove all drives (mSATA SSD, ODD, HDD)
- Press F1 at the Lenovo screen
- Tried all options in the Windows boot menu
- Pressed the Enter key at the Lenovo screen
Unfortunately there don't exist a BIOS update for the W530. So how I get into the BIOS?
