Nov 27, 2012

who has an E6530 with BIOS rev A07 test to see if the 'Custom' charging mode functions properly via the Battery Information application that is installed with the Dell Feature Enhancement Pack ? The Battery Information application worked properly prior to the A07 update.To test:

1) Reboot

2) At the DELL logo press F12

3) Select 'BIOS Setup' from the pre-boot menu

4) Select Power Management, then select the 'Primery Battery Charge Configuration'

5) Select the 'Custom' option (Write down which option is selected before you make the selection so you can restore this setting later)

6) Set the 'Custom Charge Start' value (e.g. 50, NOTE the BIOS will not allow a value less than 50)

7) Set the 'Custom Charge Stop' value (e.g. 75, NOTE: the BIOS requires this value be 5 greater than the 'Start' value)

8) Click 'Apply', then click 'Exit' and let the system boot into Windows

9) Launch the Battery Information application by performing the following steps:  
9.1) Press the 'Windows' key  
9.2) In the 'Search Program Files' search box type: 'Dell Battery Information'  
9.3) Click on the 'Dell Battery Information' link in the search results

10) When the Battery Information applications starts, verify that the Charge mode displays 'Custom' (see figure )

11) Click on the 'Change Setting' button

12) Verify that the 'Custom' mode is not listed (see figure)

13) Verify that the 'Start' and 'Stop' values which are set in BIOS are NOT correctly displayed, and that you are unable to change the 'Start' and 'Stop' values.

14) Restore your charge configuration by selecting the Charge mode you wrote down in step 5

15) Click save

Dell Latitude E6530 :: Blank Screen At Power On After Switching BIOS To UEFI Boot

Aug 7, 2013

I'm trying to install Ubuntu on an e6530. I changed a BIOS boot setting from Legacy to UEFI. Now the laptop doesn't even show me a BIOS screen at startup. The screen is backlit, so power is on, but shows nothing. The drive light flickers a few times, but no matter how long I wait, nothing appears.

I can't even switch it back to Legacy because I can't get into the BIOS. Hitting F12 after power on does nothing. Is there some way to get it back to Legacy mode? Or simply reset the BIOS to default settings?

Lenovo X / Helix Tablet :: X1 Carbon 3444 2HU - No Longer Able To Set A Custom Charge Threshold Running Windows 8.1 X64

Jan 24, 2013

I have the Lenovo X1 Carbon (3444-2HU) running Windows 8.1 x64
 
I am no longer able to set a custom charge treshold. Apparently, the power manager is no longer availabe to Windows 8(.1) users, instead, the Windows 8 app is used (which I have installed).
 
Currently, it charges to 100%. However, I want it to stop charging at 75% for battery health reasons.
 
Next to the Windows 8 app 'Lenovo Settings', these are the other Lenovo applications I have installed on my computer: [URL]...

Dell Latitude E6530 :: Firefox Browsing Gets Slower

Feb 9, 2013

I have got a Latitude E6530 laptop with an Intel quad-core i7-3720QM CPU and 8 GB RAM.

The strange thing is when I use Firefox (with not more than 6 tabs) specially using gmail, after a while scrolling and browsing become very slow; even typing become slow. As I wrote the laptop is one of the latest generation. I can not realize where the issue could be.

Dell Latitude E6530 :: Won't Wake Up - Goes Into Standby After A Few Minutes Of Inactivity

Apr 1, 2013

I got a Latitude E6530 with an E-Port II a few weeks ago. In general it's great but I have had one annoying problem a few times:

The laptop is docked with the lid closed, and two external monitors, and an external USB keyboard and mouse connected. It's running Windows 7 Ultimate.

The laptop goes into standby after a few minutes of inactivity.

When I press the power button on the dock to resume from standby, the external monitors stay in standby mode and the mouse and keyboard don't power on (no num lock light or laser on the bottom of the mouse).

If I undock the laptop and open it, the screen stays off and it doesn't respond to keyboard or touchpad input, even after several minutes. However the power light is on and the hard disk light occasionally blinks. The only solution is to power off the laptop by holding the power button for a few seconds.

Note that this doesn't happen every time that the laptop is woken from standby, it's only happened 3-4 times in a month. The Windows logs don't show any errors either.

Dell Latitude E6530 :: Chipset Driver Update Fails

Aug 5, 2014

Using Dell Clent System Update to update a Latitude E6530. All drivers are updated now except the Intel Chipset Driver. On Windows 7 64 bit. Framework version of the driver is 3.0.921.

The error message that it gives is Update package digital signature is invalid - status: Failed  Error Code 7

Not sure how to remedy this.

I am trying to install this driver update hoping it will remedy a black screen with cursor when logging in. It takes about a minute to login and then the desktop finally appears. Was taking quite a bit longer to log in before I updated the other drivers and then removed McAfee to see if it was eating up system resources.

Dell Latitude E6530 :: Upgrading Keyboard - Standard To Backlit

Mar 2, 2013

I was recently given a Latitude E6530 and I wish to upgrade the standard keyboard to a backlit one after coming from a MacBook Air. I was wondering, does E6530 (or it's similar models) requires an additional cable to power the backlight or does it just feed off the single cable? I've scoured YouTube and Google to try find out if an extra cable is required for this model however wasn't able to.

Dell :: Latitude D800 Won't Hold A Charge Normal?

Jan 13, 2009

I have a Dell Latitude D800 I bought in Summer 2003. I've never really used it away from a power outlet in almost six years of ownership, aside from one time a few weeks ago - when the battery died within 15-20 minutes of powerwing on.

Is it normal for a six year old notebook battery to not hold a charge, even if it's never really been used, and has just been plugged into power (or shut down) constantly throughout the bulk of that time?

Dell Latitude D630 :: Powers But Will Not Charge The Battery

Jan 23, 2013

Dell Latitude D630.... I bought a new battery about 2 months back (had the old one for a good 6 years before it finally bit the dust) and I've had no problems with it.  The test button still shows all 5 bright and green.  I recently replaced my adapter because it was getting old (almost 3 years) and it stopped charging since part of it's wires were frayed.  The new adapter is not charging my computer. 

It's Dell made so it shouldn't have a problem with the no-charge chip put in and it's New, not refurbished.  I've tried different outlets, restarting computer, updating BIOS, checking battery, and lots of fun stuff in between.

I'm at a loss of what to do because without it charging it, I may as well have just stuck to my old one and saved the money.  I'd rather have this issue fixed than never use my battery ever.

Dell :: M1530Won't Charge Battery, Occurred Same Day As BIOS Upgrade

Nov 14, 2008

It won't charge a battery.

I have two batteries and multiple AC adaptors. Vista will tell me "Plugged in, not charging" and the battery charge remaining does not increase.

The BIOS screen says "AC Adaptor = Unknown device installed" when plugged in.

This happened on the same day that I upgraded the BIOS from A09 to A11. I then tried downgrading to A08, but the problem persists.

I'm on the phone with tech support now. Looks like they want to replace the motherboard.

Dell Inspiron 1720 :: Updated With A09 BIOS (Windows 7) - Battery Won't Charge

Nov 22, 2014

I have installed Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 on my laptop after upgrading fom A08 to A09.  At first my batter did not charge at all , so i got it replaced with a 9 Cell one.  But it would only vharge till 69%.

I tried all the way on internet uninstalling drivers, removing battery, draining  it out etc. Still no chnage. Lately it is now charging only till 33% .

Now i Plan to go back to Vista Home premuim just to see if the battery charges fine. My question is do i also downgrade the BIOS or should i check first if it works fine in A09 and then install A08.

And is it safe to install A08 over A09 BIOS ?

Acer Aspire E5-511 :: How To Get Into Crisis Mode / What To Name BIOS Files

Mar 10, 2015

I have an Acer Aspire E5-511 that stopped booting last saturday, from what I've found I have the black screen of death (or a dead motherboard, but I'm trying to keep it positive). I think I have the proper bios .fd files, but I'm not too sure, and I can't be sure about what to name said file. I can't be sure I'm going into the Crisis mode, but I do know that If I'm holding down fn+esc when I hit the power button then the processor fan runs alot faster.

HP Envy Dv7 7304tx :: How To Enable AHCI Mode (which Is Not Possible In The BIOS) To Optimize The SSD

Nov 25, 2014

I have an HP ENVY dv7-7304tx now succesfully running a Samsung 840 Evo SSD as the primary disk. The second disk is the original spinning disk.
 
Samsung Magician software tells me I need to enable AHCI mode (which is not possible in the BIOS) to optimise the SSD.
 
Does this have the same or similar solution to that provided in the link here? : [URL]....
 
Would there be any negative consequences for the spinning disk?
