I recently bought a Dell Inspiron 3520 the wifi was working fine, and then it all of a sudden stopped. I already went and bought a new router, and tried using my Ethernet cable. The new router hasn't changed it but i can connect to my LAN network with the Ethernet cable. I am not satisfied with the LAN network because I bought a laptop so i could use it all of the house. I will not purchase anything else because i already bought an 85 dollar Belkin router.
My webcam stopped working all of a sudden. I have HP ENVY dv6-7258nr Notebook PC with Windows 8. The camera app says "Connect a camera." and the device manager does not show "Imaging Devices". Instead there is "Other Devices" which has a subcategory of "Unknown Devices" with a yellow mark.
I have updated, reinstalled cyberlink youcam drivers, tried system restore (which does not complete saying i have an anti virus open when i don't have any antivirus on my notebook) but nothing works. Scanning for hardware does not bring up any thing. I have also followed the instructions given on hp site and opened the youcam software but it does not detect the camera.
Simple Pass stopped working, on my Envy 15 j009wm windows 8.1 notebook, suddendly today. HP Recovery Manager and tried to fix it there, but it didn't work. When I manually click on Simple Pass it won't open... that is to say the page starts to come on, but then it flashes off and won't open.
I've got a new Inspiron 15 (S/N DPDYC12) with Ubuntu, installed Win7 x64 on it, most drivers from the Dell site, and on launch it brings up the error "Synaptics touchpad 64-bit enhancements has stopped working". When I try to enter mouse options in control panel, I get the error "Unable to connect to synaptics pointing device driver'. Tried reinstalling the driver, rebooting, etc. How do I fix it?
I have a new Inspiron 5547 w/Windows 7, everything is working well except for the Touchpad. Initially the touchpad was working fine, then it stopped responding, only when I attached a USB mouse could I use the laptop. I re-installed drivers and the Touchpad worked correctly again. A few days later, the trackpad stopped working again....reinstalled drivers yet again and everything worked fine. Now for the 3rd time in 4 days the trackpad is not working. Is this a hardware or Windows 7 Issue?
about 2 months ago i bought an Acer 5920G, a week or so ago suddenly the touchpad stopped working, i dont recall how it happened, i think i just booted Windows Vista as i usually do and the touchpad didnt work when i tried to click my user name so i could enter my password to logon.
I thought maybe the driver had gone bad so i rebooted and booted Windows XP( on a different partition) and in windows xp the touchpad also didnt work anymore.
Is this a hardware failure? Or are there other possibilities? I tried removing the driver and reinstalling, but it still didnt work.
The Synaptics touchpad on my DV6-2113tx stopped working a few days ago. The light on the top says its active but it doesn't work. Cannot get it to go inactive either. Have installed the new drivers from the hp site but still no luck. This is what I see under mouse properties.
I recently bought Dell Inspiron 15 5547 with Ubuntu.
When I installed Windows 7, I receive error message "Synaptics TouchPad 64-bit Enhancements has stopped working." Wen I close this my touchpad start working erratically. While typing cursor moves itself without touch or click.
The driver given on Dell site under Windows 7 is same as for Windows 8. I also tried drivers from Synaptics website but nothing worked.
The touchpad on my dell inspiron 1545 has stopped working for no apparent reason. The left and right buttons still work. An external mouse works and I was able to check my touchpad settings using it, the touchpad settings all appear to be in order and I verified it was enabled. I can't understand why the touchpad suddenly stopped working...
The touchpad on my Inspiron 15 stopped working this morning. I have a mouse plugged in and that seems to work but I'd like to get my touchpad working again. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling the touch pad drivers but it won't allow the driver to reinstall.
The touchpad and USB 3.0 port on my E5-551-89TN with windows 8.1 has stopped working. I have downloaded both drivers and installed them again but both arn't even showing up in device manager. I have updated all drivers includeing the BIOS but they still are not being detected by Windows 8.1.
Windows 7 32-bit upgrade CD (not SP1), from XP. no anti-virus yet. Windows Updates current to SP1.I have always had my DELL mouse plugged in to rear port, but for unknown reasons it is now dead to all USB devices?
Mouse is now recognized by side USB port, but I like to keep them free for bulky flash drives..I tried uninstalling all ports/refresh from Device Manager, but rear port is still dead to all USB devices.I then tried a repair install from desktop, but still dead (1st time HD light flashed for 1sec, then nothing from then on).
The laptop wont turn on when its plugged in it says it's charging then when i attempt to turn it on it sounds like its booting up but within about 3 seconds it shuts off without the display ever turning on the LED light showing the battery is charging then begins to flash and the other 2 LED lights stay on. I was on the laptop not even an hour before this happened until it died and it hadn't moved after that so I'm not sure whats causing the issue.
My D620 suddenly stopped working with an AC adaptor, won't charge the battery, won't operate without the battery. I have several AC adaptors and none of them work now. However, when docked the ac works fine and the battery charges with no issue.
I just removed the LED dashboard cover and then the keyboard in a LATITUDE E4300 and used some compressed air for a simple spring cleaning. after I carefully put everything back together, the following keys stopped working 9 O L .
I repeated the process a couple of times to make sure I didn't make any mistake, but still those keys don't work.
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.
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.
I have a Latitude E6530 and I'd like to upgrade the resolution to 1920x1080. What cable and LCD part # (or compatible) do I need? The panel is easy enough to replace but I have no idea about the LCD cable.
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:
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
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.
I reimaged my client's laptop and I am trying to download the drivers for the Universal Serial Bus Controller. I went on the dell website and tried downloading it but it still shows up as missing.
Operating system: Windows 7 x64
I was also wondering if dell has put the correct drivers up for the operating system. I select Windows 7 x64 drivers on the webpage. When I try to install them, it gives me a "invaild operating system" error.
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.
