Dell Latitude E6410 :: BIOS Locked - How To Turn Off RAID And Activate AHCI

Jan 25, 2015

I am trying to install a hybrid HDD with solid state and a mechanical back-up. The SSD portion works but I can't run the HDD utilities to turn on the mechanical drive portion. I need to turn off RAID and activate AHCI (Advanced Host Controller Interface) for HDD's in the Bios settings. It would also be nice to update my bios as the revisions come out. I need to override the Password...

Lenovo ThinkPad W Series :: W540 - SATA Option (RAID Or AHCI) Gone After BIOS Update To 2.05

Feb 6, 2014

W540 20BG001CGE, had BIOS 1.05 and RAID 1 with two Samsung 840 EVO 1TB working fine under Windows 7 - x64. Did a (by lenovo update tool recommended) BIOS Update with the bios update manager to 2.05. Update ran fine. After Rebooting (and loading defaults, disabling Intel Rapid Start, Changing BIOS boot option to legacy first ... I recognized SATA Option (AHCI or RAID) in BIOS is gone. At boot Intel Matrix Storage Configuration doesnot appear anymore (where you can build RAID etc).
Boot then brings up message "missing operating system".
Downgrade to BIOS 1.05 impossible, due to ISO File on support is not system compatible, message "Lenovo Group Limited - Invalid system disk; Replace te disk, and then press any key")
(The link to the ISO File version 1.05 at the bottom of this page links a non bootable ISO image [URL]....)
Also the downgrade to BIOS version 1.08 found here [URL] .... does not work, CD also messages "Lenovo Group Limited - Invalid system disk - Replace ...").
Rewriting BIOS version 2.05 (GNET57WW) does not work (says "BIOS update not necessary").

Dell Latitude E6410 :: Don't Know BIOS Admin Password

Nov 13, 2014

I bought aDell Latitude E6410 laptop yesterday and every time it turns on it says no boot or something. So I push the enter button and it resets. Then when it shows the dell logo again I press F12 and go to the boot sequence and its set on cd drive and not the internal HDD. So I choose to redo that all over again and then press boot from internal HDD and it works no problem but its a lot to go through just to start a laptop. How can I figure out how to change the admin password so I can set the boot sequence right.

Dell Latitude E6410 :: Laptop Will Not Flash BIOS

Dec 22, 2012

This one currently has A07, and I know it needs to flash A09 before bumping up to the current A13, but A09 stops right after launch (".....unexpectedly quit..."). Logged in with Admin rights, not seeing any reason for BIOS failure. Another download of the A09 was tried as well.

Dell Latitude E6410 :: Upgrade BIOS To A13 And Works Slowly - Not Right USB Ports

Nov 25, 2012

I run the BIOS upgrade / update to the version A13 on my Dell Latitude E6410 and after that I found this problems:

. the bios logo on startup takes about to 10 seconds to load (and sometimes freeze and need to restart the machine)

. the boot menu (F12) takes 4 o 5 minutes to load

. the startup of Windows 7 64bits - SP1 takes more than 1 minute to load and some apps works slowly

. the 2 usb ports on the right side doesnt work after the upgrade

Can return to other version of BIOS (I think that the previous version was A08 or A09)?

Dell Latitude E6400 :: Hard Disk Locked By BIOS After Installing OS

Jan 27, 2015

Back before Xmas, I had to reinstall the os so at the same time I changed the password for the hard disk that is set in the bios, before installing the os.

Problem is after the OS had installed and said it was shutting down to reboot, it never shut down properly so after 5-10mins I pushed the power button to force it to shut down.

Switched it back on, typed in the new hard disk password and it wouldnt accept it. Tried again but no success so tried the old hard disk password but even that didnt work. Anyway I've locked the hard disk now, not updated the bios or anything but wondered if there is anything I can do or Dell can do to unlock it?

Its an E6400 with the finger print scanner (can post the tag number) , I know its old laptop but still got all the receipts and everything to prove its not nicked and owned by the original owner.

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)?

Lenovo U/S Series :: U410 - Change AHCI To RAID

May 10, 2014

Changing Chipset SATA Mode from AHCI to RAID?
I have already checked:
1) Changing regiser's key as above/;
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESystemCurrentControlSetServicesstorahci Start 3 -> 0
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESystemCurrentControlSetServicesiaStorA Start 0
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESystemCurrentControlSetServicesiaStorV Start 0
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESYSTEMCurrentControlSetServicesstorahci Error Control 3 -> 0
Unfortunately after rebooting in RAID mode, OS doesn't work.
2) Going step by step over the description made by microsoft support team: [URL] .....
Doesn't work.
My aim is to configure my SSD as a cache drive and as I read - without changing mode into RAID, it wouldn't work.
Maybe there is a possibility to set up SSD as cache in AHCI mode?

Dell :: Latitude E6410 Optical Drived

May 17, 2010

My question is this - are SATA laptop optical drives the same as older IDE drives, in that they are universally compatible

with laptops, or do OEMs have drives that don't follow a standardized size and form factor now?

I found a Lite-On DVD-RW with LightScribe on eBay for like $40, but I don't want to get it if it's not going to fit.......................................................

Dell Latitude E6410 :: Could Not Drive VGA Splitter

Mar 18, 2013

Does the Latitude E6410 have a weak or a time critical signaling on the VGA port? The other day I had to replace my Latitude with a backup laptop as it was unable to drive a VGA splitter feeding three projectors. There was no problems in driving at single projector though. The other LG laptop E500 had no problems in running exactly the same presentation on all three projectors through the splitter.

The rather surprising thing was that as long as my power point presentation were display in edit mode, it worked fine whereas in show mode all of the connected projectors went blank. I tried to exercise the Fn F8 with no change.Would a VGA amplifier do the trick?

Dell Latitude E6410 :: Cannot Keep Hard Drive

Dec 9, 2014

My company has offered to give to me my Latitude e6410.  However, I cannot keep the hard drive.  It has to be destroyed per policy.  I am able to pull off recovery information and build my own image.  One more concern is that the current hard drive is encrypted with Symantec Endpoint Encryption (SEE).  Therefore, I do not want to simply clone the drive as I do not want no cannot use that image.

Also, if I need to reinstall my own image of Win 7 from new disks, will this e641 run 64bit.  Currently the OS is WIn7 Pro.What about the recovery partition? I already have a spare 5ooGB 7200rpm 2.5" disk and i have a lot of hardware experience so I have no concerns about the actual disk replacement.  It's just the image.

Dell Latitude E6410 :: Intermittent USB On One Device

Jan 20, 2015

I have one device, a 3DRobotics PixHawk autopilot, which connects intermittently via USB to my E6410. All other USB devices, flash drives, cameras, wireless rcvr etc. always work fine. This one device does not. It only connects occasionally and usually does not. The failures issued by the device vary.

If I hook the device to my Asus X53U, it connects every time. The Asus is extremely slow and I really need to reliably connect to the Dell.

Note: The E6410 contains an upgrade to an i7 720QM quad processor.

Dell Latitude E6410 :: No Network Boot

Oct 14, 2010

We image all our new systems in our organizations on SCCM.  I've got one that is a puzzler.  I will not get an ip from the server.  Instead it displays the message "PXE-E51:No DHCP or proxyDHCP offers were received."  No other computer has this issue.  I does not get as far as the network boot so it is not a windows deployment service issue.  And it  senses if the cable is disconnected, and gives you a different PXE error.  I have flashed the BIOS, no sucess.  I RMA'd the motherboard, and no difference.  Dell won't replace the whole system since it was a replacement for another DOA. I thought it might be that little daughter card that contains the NIC connection, but cannot see that listed on the dispatch site as a seperate part.

Dell :: Latitude E6410/6510 Alps Track Pad Verdict?

May 6, 2010

I just bought an E6410 tonight, thanks to a 30% off coupon I found.

All of a sudden, however, I'm doubting my purchase - specifically because this machine uses an Alps touchpad, whereas the Vostro 3300 I was going to buy (before I found this coupon) uses a Synaptics touchpad.

The last time I had a machine with an Alps pad was in 2004 with my Latitude D600, and that thing sucked. I mean, it was an atrocious piece of hardware.

So what's the verdict on the hardware in the new E64x machines? Is it painful to use? I found a thread talking about using different OEM drivers to improve the responsiveness of the device - is this still necessary?

Just curious to see what current owners think about this. I still don't understand why Dell's been so dead-set on using Alps hardware since the D-series. My old C600 had a Synaptics trackpad, and I loved that thing.

Dell Latitude E6410 :: How To Awake Laptop After Screen Goes Black

Jul 15, 2014

This  Latitude E6410 is my 4th dell laptop, (3 desktops too) so I thought I was familiar with their behaviour.  Nevertheless a new issue has arisen, when idle for some time the screen goes blank, similar to my other machines.  Usually I  press enter, they wake up and I carry on with my work..  The E6410's screen goes blank and will not display again.  All the activity is revived as I can hear the sounds my spreadsheets and accounting and tax software make, except for the screen display. A reboot is necessary.
