Dell :: Latitude E6400 Battery LED Flashing

Dec 7, 2009

I have a Latitude E6400 running Windows 7.

Just booted up my machine: for some reason the battery LED light is flashing. The battery seems to be charging and if I take out the power chord, the computer keeps on running on battery power.

Update: when the battery completed charging, the battery LED just switched off.

Dell :: Latitude E6400 And Battery

May 8, 2009

I have been reading about people getting so many hours out of their E6400. I have the 9 cell battery and running the screen on the lowest setting, Bluetooth off and wifi on im getting close to 6 and a half hours of battery life. Is this normal....

I heard about doing a clean install, what does this do, and what benefits would i be achieving by doing this?..

Is there anything else i can do to get a little more juice out of the battery when i need it? I plan to have wifi on most of the time when it is being used. Basic web-surfing and Microsoft word...

Jan 15, 2010

my dad gave me his old e6400 as his job paid him a brand new hp elitebook with all the bells and whistles, after checking my new toy, I found out that the battery if pretty much dead.

The bios reports that it's damaged and Ubuntu says it can only hold 25% of the original charge... And it only lasts 20 minutes .

Dell :: Latitude E6400 9 Cell Battery

Sep 19, 2009

I've been reading several user experiences and figured I should join since I'm having several questions/issues with my E6400.

For now my issue is with a 9 Cell battery I purchased from fleabay.

I bought a "Geniune New" battery from a US seller. For some reason the BIOS always reads it at 99%, where as my 6 cell will go to 100%. Is this normal for the 9 cell? Also I noticed the LED light button is much harder to press on the 9 cell compared to the 6.

The only part number I could get from the 9 cell is this:

JP-0FU441-47847-917-J6NP-A01

It has all the Dell markings, recycle numbers etc. It even came with a 9 cell Dell booklet. I just wasn't sure if all these 9 cells register at 99%. My old Inspiron E1505 9 cell also registered at 99%.

Dell Latitude E6400 :: How To Get Battery Status

Oct 7, 2008

I've recently received a Latitude E6400. The battery is fine working, but I noticed the battery has a series of LED lights on it, and a charging indicator, which presumable should show the charge remaining. The battery charges OK but I never see these indicator lights display anything.
 
I've read various guides I downloaded for this laptop but can't find any information on the battery lights.

Dell Latitude E7240 :: E/Dock Flashing Cursor

Jan 13, 2015

I have 2 new E7420 laptops that are replacing some older ones.

When I dock either of them, all I get is a flashing cursor on either the external screens, or the laptop screen. I get the Dell logo, then just a flashing cursor on the top left of the screen.

I can turn the laptop on, wait for it to boot, then dock it, but of the 3 times I've tried that, the USB didnt work once.

Have just upgraded to the latest BIOS, but it didnt change anything.

Is there some BIOS setting or something I need to change?

Dell Latitude D400 :: Won't Boot - Stalls At Flashing Cursor

Jan 19, 2009

I have an issue with my Latitude D400 laptop which has now occurred twice. Basically, after operating normally and shutting down properly it has stopped booting. After the POST screen it simply hangs at a black screen with a flashing cursor in the top left corner.

Using the recovery console to repair the MBR and boot sector on the HDD has no effect. Neither does a repair installation of Windows XP Pro. The first time it happened I backed up, wiped the disc and started with a fresh installation of XP Pro.

However, it's now happened again. The hard disc is completely undamaged (all files are intact) but will not boot at all.

Dell :: Battery Light Flashing

May 9, 2009

Have a question for you. Last night I had my laptop connected up to the ECM of my car (for diagnostics purposes) and went for a drive with it connected to the ECM. No Problem. Got back from the trip and the battery was down to 4% so I promptly shut it down (after turning the car off).

I plugged the charger in and the battery is back up to 100% but for some reason the orange flashing battery light on the laptop keeps flashing. I have taken the power pack out and the battery is ok, works as per normal

Dell :: Power/Battery Flashing Orange

Jul 11, 2007

The battery/power signal (the three green LEDs right under the display on the right side) keeps flashing orange four times then blinks green once, and repeats.

The PC is on AC power and the battery is full too (99%). I don't know what the problem is.

I read around and it seems my battery is dead. Fortunately, my purchase of the XPS was just under a year ago, so I should get it replaced without paying up. I have a replacement battery that I bought at purchase. I hope it lasts loner. Do you guys reccomend taking out the battery when running on AC power?

Dell Inspiron N5010 :: Battery Light Flashing

Jan 6, 2015

I have a N5010 Inspiron. My battery has been down to a few minutes for a yr or two. I keep my laptop plugged in always unless traveling.

Today, my battery light started flashing. Amber for times then white then repeats. Since I was plugged in I was perplexed. I looked on my screen and it showed 100 percent battery meaning I am plugged in.

Then I turned my computer completely off. THE LIGHT KEPT FLASHING. Now it is getting spooky. I unplug the power supply from the back of the computer and the light went off.

Hours later I plugged everything back in. Started the computer and the light started again. Since it is no warning for anything other than the battery, 

I tried unplugging while computer was on. Still flashing.

I turned off. Took battery out and put back in. Still Flashing. 

While off AND battery out I plugged in and no flashing

Put batter back in....plugged in and flashing resumed. 

So for now I am trying to ignore it....

Dell Mini 10 :: Flashing Orange - Safe To Run With No Battery Inserted?

Jan 30, 2013

My 4-year old Dell Mini 10 has started flashing orange just after bootup & then turns off. (Adapter LED is solid white, the flashing orange is the one at the front.) Removed the battery for an hour, since some postings say it's probably just hot; when it's reinserted the problem returns. But when I run it on AC power with the battery out, no problems.

This machine has had a weird life for a laptop, in that it has almost never been taken anywhere -- that is, it has only rarely run on battery power, and the battery has been fully discharged only a handful of times.

I'll be replacing it soon regardless, but for the month or so between now and then, is there anything wrong or unsafe about running it with no battery in the bay?

Dell Inspiron 14Z :: Battery Not Charging - Lights Flashing Orange 3x Then White

Apr 7, 2013

My laptop is just over a year old, and out of the warranty. I'm particularly upset about this.

My battery, which was working just fine yesterday is now giving me a "plugged in," not charging message. The lights on the front of the computer (Dell Inspiron 14z, 2012 model) is flashing orange 3x then white.

My mom has the same laptop as me and hers is working fine. Her adapter (which works for her) would not charge my battery. Her battery worked in my laptop but would not charge. Using her battery, I updated the BIOS since I couldn't previously as it was less than 10%.

Dell :: Latitude D630 Vs Latitude E6400

Jun 19, 2009

The price of 2nd user Latitude D630's seems to be holding up quite well in the UK. Does this indicate that it is still a popular machine and favoured over the E6400?

I briefly checked out an E6400 the other day and for a choice between machines of approximately similar spec I would opt for the D630 rather than the newer E6400.

I would be interested in opinions from users who have experience with both models.

HP ProBook 4530s :: No Battery Is Detected - Flashing Yellow Light

Jan 28, 2011

I bought a new ProBook 4530s less than 2 weeks ago. It is running Windows 7 64 bit. I was using it today on battery power when it shut down unexpectedly.  Apparently the battery was low.  I was listening to music and did not hear any low battery warning.  Certainly, there was no popup message.  I plugged in the charger and restarted the computer.  Now I see an icon on the bottom right of the screen that apparently means No Battery is Detected.  

The yellow light on the left side of the laptop next to the power cord is flashing.  I did some research online and tried removing and replacing the battery several times.  No change.  Originally, I was unable to start the computer from the battery at all.  Now I find that I have enough power that I can start from the battery, so it must be getting some power in spite of the icon.   I have now restarted several times, plugged in and on battery.  I always get the No Battery message and the flashing yellow light.  
 
I have looked at Device Manager, and it says that the battery is fine.

Dell Inspiron 1440 :: Touchpad Not Working Properly When Charging And Battery Indicator Flashing Red

Feb 11, 2013

I have a Dell Inspiron 1440 which I've been using since 2010. Recently I bought a new charger for my laptop as the old one got damaged and now when I'm charging the laptop the touch pad is not working properly. It is slow and sometimes I can't select items with the touch pad. So I changed the charger and when I checked in the shop the touch pad with new charger (the second one)  was working fine. But when I went home again the same problem with the touch pad when charging only. When I remove the charger it works fine. And I also tried with a friends charger (but another dell model) and it works fine.  And now my laptop battery indicator is blinking red three times. That also happens when charging only.

Dell :: Latitude E6400 ATG

Oct 18, 2008

I'm pretty new to Dell notebook world. I was always told that Dell has a stinky customer service and their image wasn't that good around spot but care sharing whats good and bad about dell in general?

1- In the LCD option, it says touchscreen. Does that mean I can somewhat use this laptop like a tablet? ( Without the ability to twist the screen of course..)

2-Never knew whtas the different between 1dimms and 2dimms in RAM....

3-Compare Geforce 9400gs with the Mobile Intel Graphics Media Accelerator X4500HD With PC-Card. Plus, what do they mean by "PC-Card" or "EXpress card" ?

4-Does Dell notebook actually give us 64bits windows or they're all 32bits unless they mention the option of 64bits?

5-Whats the difference between the normal e6400 model and the ATG model? Simply more durability +weight?

6- Whats an encrypted HDD or a ruggedized HDD?

7- I'll be using the notebook for design purpose. Such as photoshop, flash, illustrator or such. I'll be using 2-3 program at once with several picture/projet +internet + music. If my specs are 2.26ghz or 2.4ghz + 4gb ram + intel HD4500HD, will this notebook handle it?.............................

Ill try for a new version of vista too. Im happy i got the p9500, that was probably the only one left that was a decent price,

Dell :: To Anyone With A Latitude E6400 And 8 GB Of RAM

Sep 10, 2009

I have a simple question: is the E6400 able to use the 8 GB of RAM fully? I have read some threads here about chipset limitations etc.

Could those of you with the E6400 and 8 GB of RAM quickly check whether your 8 GB are fully usable by the system?

Dell :: Latitude E6400 On The Horizon ...

Jan 21, 2010

I'll be able to order my new E6400 soon, as follows:

CPU: Intel P9700 2.8GHz
GPU: nVIDIA Quadro NVS 160M / ExpressCard
HDD: (whatever is cheapest) I'll replace with a Scorpio Black or Blue (see question 5)
MEM: (whatever is cheapest) I'll replace with 2x2GB of Corsair DDR2-800
WI-FI: (whatever is cheapest) I'll replace with an AR9280 half miniPCIe card
LCD: WXGA+ (1440x900) LED-backlit
- Backlit keyboard, Bluetooth module, 6-cell battery

Keep in mind that I won't be running Windows on this machine, but instead, Linux (Arch Linux x64).

Questions:

1) Is the nVIDIA Quadro NVS 160M enough to run Compiz-Fusion smoothly?

I previously ran Compiz-Fusion with an Intel GMA X3100 integrated GPU and was underwhelmed. Everything worked, but the animations were pretty herky-jerky, most of the time. Aero animations under Windows 7 were similarly not very smooth. I'm hoping for more with the nVIDIA Quadro (I read one report that Aero with an E6400/nVIDIA wasn't very smooth).

2) How bad *really* is the touchpad?

I've heard reports that the touchpad is imprecise and laggy, but I've also heard from people who say they haven't had any issues. Is this a "hit or miss" situation with the hardware, or is it due simply to what people are used to? Or has this been fixed?

3) How durable is the lid/screen?

I've heard reports that "the E6400 is well-built and durable ... except for the display," with no real elaboration. Is there any truth to this? Bending, flexing, etc.? Screen distortions if pressure is applied to the back? Does it seem strong? Feel strong?

4) Does the "brushed-metal" on the back of lid look good in person? Or does it look cheap, fake, tacky, etc ... ?

5) Can I replace the hard-drive?

I heard from one owner that the hard-drives used in the E6400 use a non-standard SATA layout, and thus aftermarket hard-drives cannot be installed. That seemed like it would be a very stupid thing for Dell to do ... but I thought I'd ask.

6) After time (6-12 months), does the display start to wobble when open?

I had an Acer Aspire 4720Z (I know, cheap quality) whose display would wobble when open. At the top of the screen, probably about 1/2" to 3/4" of wobble. The Dell Inspiron 1521 I'm using now does the same thing ... very annoying. Does the E6400 exhibit anything like this even AFTER extended ownership? Say 6 months to a year or more?

7) Is the audio bad?

I've heard from a few people that the audio is simply horrid, even through headphones. I've also heard that disabling PC Spk has fixed it for some people ... is this an outdated issue that has been fixed by Dell?

8) Is there anything else I should know?

If there's anything else that I need to know, I'd love to hear it.

Sorry for so many questions, but this will be a big purchase.

Are there 3 antennas in the laptop still that would allow an upgrade to a Intel wifi 5300 card (assuming it can be found outside of the customization page)?

Is there anywhere cheaper than dell to buy the wireless-n part for the E6400? Dell only has the 5100 for $59.99 and haven't seen the 5300 in parts.

Dell :: Latitude D630 Vs. E6400

Oct 28, 2008

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?

Is going backwards to the D series a wise choice?
