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?
My Latitude E6410 Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit machine crashed yesterday and when it came back up I was no longer able to use the touch-pad buttons below the touchpad, or the middle button above the touchpad. The pointer stick, along with the right and left button above the touchpad are still working properly.
I have tried reinstalled the ALPS driver and the Dell touchpad software.When I open the touchpad software it shows the touchpad as being enabled but it does not show any configuration for the pointer stick or buttons above the touchpad. what driver or application I need to install to get my touchpad and buttons operational again?
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.
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.
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.
I have a hp envy m7j010dx with windows 8.1. it came preinstalled (windows 8) on a 1 tb hdd. I recently purchased a samsung 840 pro 250 gb ssd that i wouold like to make the system drive and make the original drive my data drive. confused on how to do so. want it fresh not clone. all i can find is restore or backup stuff. i just want to put the original computer on the new drive.
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.
create a new Bios Screen to ours Latitude E6410.I have used a bootable CD with a splash.exe file to load a Bios Screen with the company logo and it had worked in ours Latitude D600/610/620/630 and E6400.Now when I try to do the same with our E6410 I'm getting the message " This Bios does not support splash.exe. Upgrade your system Bios and try again."
I have a Latitude E6410 with SD card reader. I can see the card reader in device management but the sd card will not apper as a drive in Windows 7. I tried the sd card on a colleagues laptop (exactly same spec and OS installation) and it works instantly.
all I got a new E6410 and 2 docking stations around a month ago.The problem I have is that when the notebook is in my office docking station it is really really slow.I can watch while window contents are draw, switching messages inthugnerbird takes a couple of seconds.In the home dokcing station everything is fine.
I have a Dell Latitude E6410. I recently installed created a linux partition on my HDD but was not interested in keeping it. Anyway after I uninstalled this OS, the space allocated to it on the HDD was turned into unallocated space. I have been unable to merge it with my primary partition. What I wanted to ask was that if I perform a reinstall of my original OS(Windows 7 Professional), will I be able to recover the original partitions and how can it be done?
I bought a Dell Latitude E6410 with fingerprint sensor, I checked the drivers and I've the drivers for Dell ControlVault w/ fingerprint swipe sensor, and I want to use the fingerprint sensor instead of the pasword to log in in my user of the computer, but I dont know what software I need to do it, what software (Aplication) can I use for that?
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.
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.
I have old version A05 on my E6410 Bios. I tried to upgrade to A06, then I´d like to upgrade to A07, A09, and then to A13, because i need to have the A09 installed before install A13.I`ve downloaded all the versions, but the problem is that the Dell BIOS Flash window does not start !!!
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.
Recently began recollecting drivers needed for Latitude E6410 Win 7 32 bit fresh build, and found some descrepancies. 1 "How to Download and Install Drivers in the Correct Order" (Dated 8-14-2006) on the Latitude E6410 driver page states that for number 8 the Dell ControlPoint software Says it is located in "Applications" when itis in fact under Dell Control Point. It Suggests installing the following:
-Control Point System Manger -Control Point Security Manager -Control Point Connection Manager
But in fact the only 2 available are Control Point System Manager and Control Vault (A little confusing). Also, under System Utilities is the PDF E-Family How-To Reimage Guide Which is marked urgent and I use for recreating images. It states that the Driver that has to be installed (Prerequisite to other DCP ) is Dell Control Point Security Driver Pack. Which is no where to be found. I heard toady from "Ronnie" at Dell Tech services via phone that I should use Dell Data Protection (Instead of Dell Control Point) but can find nothing on the correct order or how and when to install it.
Is there anyway to get an updated Latitude E6410 Win 7 32bit Correct order (And which ones) Driver install list?
I have a Latitude E6410 that I'm having problems with. On boot up it goes to a black screen with this error message: ERROR "The reader is not installed on this machine. To install reader, press any key to restart your computer and run the reader installer. If the reader is installed on this pc, please check if the reader is installed on an encrypted hard drive.....Press any button to continue".
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???
I purchased a refurbished Dell e6410 about a year ago. The Laptop was working find with no issues. But in mid August, I did a windows 7 update... After the update, windows restarted... But instead of booting up to windows... It went to "startup repair". It ran this several times until is said it could not repair the startup.
I ended up having to do a recovery and reload windows and re-image my HD... After doing that, I tried windows update again. Same issue. after windows update... It would just got to startup repair.
Again, I had to restore my OS and re-image my drive. I tested and checked the HD and go no errors. Ran disk check and disk check /r... But if I tried to run a windows update it would just go into startup repair and I would eventually have to just reload my os and re-image the drive.
I spoke to an agent from Dell about it... He suggested I wait a month before trying to do the windows update. Perhaps they have a bug.
So I waited two months and tried an update again, last night. This time, I would get the dell logo, with f12 option, that would go away and then "windows is loading necessary files", but then the screen would go black and dell screen came up gain, then "windows is loading necessary files". I let it do this for almost an hour. Windows never started... I had no option to get into safe mode or any other boot modes. I have a regular desk top pc that I have done windows update and it has no issues.
