Dell Latitude E7240 :: USB Ports Disabled While Docked?

Nov 3, 2014

I have just gotten an E7240 computer and have noticed that the USB ports on the back of my computer are disabled when the computer is docked which is a very unfortunate feature of this new computer model. It seems there are many people posting complaints about this feature on the internet. It basically takes a computer that has 3 USB ports and makes two of them rather useless. It is very useful if a USB receiver for keyboard and mouse can be plugged in to the back of the computer so that the mouse can be used easily when docked, but also when the computer is taken off the dock to go to a meeting room. This then leaves the side USB port available for devices such as wireless projectors when in the meeting room. Although this computer was designed to behave this way, I think that most users would agree that this is a critical issue that needs to be seriously considered and fixed by Dell as soon as possible assuming that there is not already a work around available.

Dell :: Using KVM Switch With Docked Latitude D630

Apr 4, 2010

I am trying to use a Latitude D630 docked in a PR01 port replicator with a KVM switch. The problem I am having is that the video signal is not displayed using the PR01 DVI port.

The Latitude D630 itself does not have a DVI port, however, when docked in the PR01, the port replicator has a DVI port that will display a video signal when connected directly to a monitor. When the KVM switch is placed in line between the PR01 and the monitor then the DVI signal is not displayed .....

Dell :: Latitude E6430 / USB Ports Don't All Work And Docking Station USB Ports Do Not Work

Mar 1, 2014

I have a Dell Latitude E6430 laptop running windows 7 64-bit.  When I try to use it with a docking station, the USB ports on the docking station do not work.  When I try to use a USB mouse with it, it only works with one of the USB ports.  When I try using my printer (HP laserjet 1320) through the USB ports, it doesn't work (it did previously with a Dell latitude E6430 running windows 7 64-bit).

I've installed the latest BIOS upgrade, updated the USB and intel chipset drivers.  How do I get these working?

Dell Latitude E7240 :: Device Is Locked

Apr 4, 2014

We have bought a bunch of Latitudes E7240 and deployed them with the new Dell Data Protection | Security Tools (DDP|ST).Now we have discovered that if you attempt to login with the wrong credentials the device (HDD) will be locked.This is expected as it is one of the purpose of having Disk encryption enabled BUT if a user accidentally lock the HDD by typing wrong credentials you would expect to be able to UNLOCK it with the admin password. (You create one when first enabling DDP|ST)

So, the user forgot he's credentials and the screen only shows "The device is locked, contact your administrator" and with NO OPTIONS what so ever! How do I, as the administrator unlock the HDD? Where do I type the admin password?

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 E7240 :: Not Working With PR03X Docking Station

Oct 8, 2014

My Latitude e7240 when docked onto the PR03X docking station, the power adapter that is plugged into the PR03X completely goes dead.  The only way I can reset the power is by unplugging and replugging the AC adapter FROM THE WALL.  Tried the spacer.   Tried double powering (1 adapter into the PR03X and another adapter into the e7240).  Also tried plugging the laptop on first without power, and when powering up the laptop, it would boot up 10x slower than normal and sometimes hang.  Also tried multiple other PR03X just to be sure the one i have is not faulty.  The same problem is repeatable.  The laptop has the latest BIOS.

It seems there is a power mismatch of some sort that would cause a) the adapter to fail, and then b) for the laptop to run extremely slow because of what?Is the problem caused by a faulty docking port on the e7240? I assume the PR03X is compatible to the e7240??

Dell Latitude E7240 :: Touchpad Multi Finger Gestures

Nov 15, 2014

Latitude E7240 has Touchpad Alps. All works fine except settings "Flick" (Gestures -> Multi Finger Gestures).

This setting works, but after some time (random period) stops working. To fix this I need restart Apoint.exe or go to settings, deselect Flick and select it again.

My laptop's BIOS has latest version A11 and all drivers installed from web site Dell.

Also, I tried to install Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 with touchpad drivers only, but this did not solve problem.

Dell Latitude E7240 :: Buzzing Sound On Touch Screen

Oct 16, 2013

I've recently taken delivery of an E7240 with the FHD touch screen option. I am generally quite impressed with the laptop except for one thing, the touch screen buzzes. The sound is similar to a hard disk working, a bit random .. not a constant noise.  The sound will immediately stop when I put a finger on the screen though which makes me think it's related to the touch screen itself. 

Rebooting etc. makes no difference... shaking the laptop, smacking it (gently) etc. has no affect.....

I realise these laptops are new so perhaps there isn't much experience out there...

Dell Latitude E7240 :: Freezing When Waking From Sleep On Battery

Feb 5, 2015

We have purchased and deployed a number of Latitude E7440's and E7240's and we are running into an issue with some of the E7240's.  When waking from sleep while on battery power, the machine will start to wake, the display will come back and I can move the cursor but within a second or two, the cursor will freeze and the machine will become totally unresponsive.  This doesn't happen on AC.  I've set the power plan to 1 minute and tested over and over again and it is reproducible every time.  The only way to recover from it is to power off the machine via the power button and restart it.

Right now this is happening on the original end-user's machine and 1 other deployed E7240 we were able to get back and test.  I have a couple of other E7240's deployed and I have an email out to the end users to bring them in so we can check them too.   

I've upgraded the BIOS from A09 to A13.  I've tried switching wireless control from Intel to Windows.  I've updated to the latest drivers on the Dell support site. 

Machines are i7, 256GB SSD with 8GB RAM running Windows 7(64) Enterprise

Dell Latitude E7240 :: Wireless Network - Limited Connectivity

Oct 6, 2014

We have several Latitude E7240's on our network. They are configured with Windows 7 x64. We have been having trouble with this particular model in regards to wireless connections.

When the laptop is powered on and the user logs in, the laptop connects to the wireless network, however it is not getting an IP address from the router. It sticks at "limited connectivity", and gives itself a "169" IP. It stays that way for about 5 or so minutes then finally connects.

The WLAN drivers are already to the latest version, and to "bandaid" the issue, I have to uninstall the Wireless NIC drivers then reinstall them.

At first I was thinking it may be a router issue (Which is a Sonicwall TZ210W), but it can't be because its wireless devices of differing models have no problem connecting and getting an IP address. Also, it starts working once the drivers are reinstalled (though I'm not confident this is a permanent fix).

All the E7240's have the Dell 1506 Wireless card, and are all and originally were) on driver version, A02. Also, I have tried turned off any power management settings of the WNIC prior to the driver reinstall.

Dell Latitude E7240 :: AC Adapter Does Not Work With E-Port Docking Station

May 25, 2014

We are running more than200 dell computers in our company. lately we purchased E7240 for some users but it looks like the AC adapter does not work with the Dell E-Port docking station we have and that cause the USB hubs not to function at all.

Currently the workaround is to plug the AC adapter to the laptop instead of the docking station.

Our BIOS is updated to the latest version. also a message comes up when the ac adapter connected to the docking station before the windows boot up saying the ac adapter won't charge.....

Dell Latitude E7240 :: Bluetooth Tray Icon Removed When Adapter Turned Off

Feb 17, 2014

When one turns off the Bluetooth adapter from the tray icon, the tray icon disappears. In order to turn the BT adapter back on, it appears one must go to the Device Manager to re-enable the BT adapter. This is inconvenient and not awfully intuitive for a usual business end-user. In the past the BT icon in the tray would remain, but turn color to indicate it's off. And the end user could right-click it and turn it back on when needed.

Currently it appears, turning off the BT adapter, actually disables it and it "disappears". Is there a way to simply turn the adapter off and more importantly back on without having users get into the device manager from their standard user accounts?

E7240 with Dell 1601 WiFi/BT adapter in use on Win7/64 Ult.

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)?
