I have a Latitude D531 laptop that when I hit the power button, the light comes on but goes off after about 10 seconds. This began when I had it on ansd all of a sudden shut down. One of Dell's people told me to try something but it still shuts off after five or six seconds. I thought it might be a short but am unsure.
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 have an E5430 that when the power button is pressed will not post every time. It is random. I get the power light only. Holding the power button down until it clicks off and pressing it again on the sixth or 19th time it will finally light off and post and head into boot. I have run the full diagnostics and no problems are found. The diagnostic finds no problems so I am wondering if this is a power button problem or something not tied to the MB. The same thing occurs with different batteries and power adapters.
My studio xps 16 screen appear to be blank and refuses to start up when i powered the machine. I waited and it does nothing, other than maintaining the light on the keyboard and touch sensitive area at the top of the keyboard....
Ok after 3 days of using the 1340 I just realized the button on the top panel that you can use to increase/decrease volume stopped working. I had updated the latest drivers from Dell site but not sure if that is the reason.
Also non of the other buttons that are for DVD work either. And I know they were working when I got the laptop and only thing I have done is update with latest drivers.
I have a problem on my Acer 1810tz - when I press a Function button, such as Fn + F8 = mute/unmute sound, there is a very long delay of up to 3 seconds between pressing the button and seeing the speaker symbol show up on screen.
Acer's Launch Manager program is what displays the on-screen symbols. I have installed the latest version from the Acer website (it is a fresh install of Win7 64bit) found here, version 3.0.02.
When I purchased the laptop the symbols appeared straight away but now, after a fresh install, there is a long delay. All I have installed is chipset/graphics drivers and touchpad drivers.
Basically the Fn Button, Left, Right, Up, Down buttons are all working fine. I can adjust the volume of the notebook, but I can't however adjust the brightness of the screen. There is no brightness setting in my notebook whatsoever! Am I missing the brightness driver? what is the name of the brightness driver? Or is it something else. Taking into account that I have decrease/increase brightness symbols on the left/right buttons respectively.
I have an ACER Aspire 5542g and i've had a problem with it lately, when I turn it on, the fan starts running, the harddrive turns on, and the CD drive starts up, the power button LED is on, but all that shows up is a black screen. I have tried the "Take out the charger and battery, hold the power button for 30 seconds", tried switching the RAM, tried taking out the harddrive, and all have been a fail. And I am honestly confused, because some of the time (rarely) it will turn on, and literally everything about the laptop is perfectly fine, and its like nothing happened. Until you turn it off.
I bought this HP Split X2 about two months ago. When I am working on it, if I move and the screen moves ever so slightly back and forth, it will completely shut down. I have to adjust the screen to a angle where the power button will turn it on.
I have a major problem with my hp pavilion dv6-3143sa laptop.
I put it to a shop and they told me it was a motherboard/cpu problem and they couldn't source parts. I managed to get the parts. I put the motherboard first, but didn't work. I then added the cpu and put on thermal paste, but still didn't work.
My laptop will power on but I'm still getting a blinking light on the caps lock button and a black screen.
I have an Aspire V5-572P-6454. Occasionally I accidentally hit the power button on the side of the computer and it makes my screen go black. I can't figure out how to get me screen back, thought it was a lighting issue and tried Fn and the left and right arrows, but that doesn't work. Usually end up rebooting and losing what I've been working on.
My T420 takes about 20 seconds from pushing the power on button to the Lenovo POST screen. After that boot takes about 30 seconds to Desktop. What bothers me is this long wait until I see the POST screen. It doesn't seem normal to me.
My System is setup with Windows 7 64bit booting from UEFI on a mSATA Crucial M500 SSD. It has 16GB of Ram and a i7 CPU. I have the newest BIOS (1.46) installed.
I have a dell e6500 and i really love it, but my screen is the 1280x800..
I was wondering... could I simply upgrade to a WXGA+ or WUXGA if i find one and order it?..
i think i have a ccfl and the other two are led backlit. would that be a problem, or is that built into the screen itself if i got a new one? lemme know if this is possible, and any good links to order screens from..
I have a used Dell Latitude D820 .When I plug in the adapter and turn it on, the little lights on the computer come on that signify that it's charging and powered on, and I can hear 'something', probably the hard drive, spinning inside it, sounding normal. The only problem is that the screen will not come on at all. No Dell logo, no Bios, none of that stuff. how to get the screen to turn on.
I have a Dell 4310 that I bought used without a hard drive. When I unboxed and initially tested it with another drive it booted into Windows 7, but, did not load because it wasn't the right drive.
The computer sat next to my chair for a few days until I got the new SSD drive that I wanted to install. When I put the drive in and plugged the system in (no battery yet) the battery light on the upper left flashed briefly and the power button came on and stayed that way for about twenty seconds. The screen remained black and the battery light and power button turned off.
This morning my son mentioned that he "might' have spilled a little bit of something on it. I quickly took it apart and carefully dried the pieces and parts on the heating vent and put it back together and the same thing happened.
I have tried the following:
1) Re seat RAM
2) verified video is connected
3) unplugged, held the power button for fifteen seconds and plugged the power cord back in.
What could I be looking at here, a new Motherboard?
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."
Ive got a two year old latitude D630 that is shutting down right after the Dell splash screen. pressing down on the left side of the laptop while its booting up and that worked to the point where I got to the login screen, but after a few seconds, it just shut down again.
My latitude d620 screen goes black if i have the charger hooked up and i move it it doesnt do this if i move it on battery and i hooked it up to a monitor and the video went off on there too when i moved it.
I'm experiencing a problem with multiple Latitude E7440 laptops.
When I undock from a port replicator, the laptop screen goes black. The screen never returns to a usable state. I must turn off the laptop manually and power back on. This is not occurring 100% of the time but is occurring fairly often. I'm running the latest drivers and bios update.
For me it happens when I shut the laptop screen and open it again right away. If I wait a few beats before I open it, the screen lights up again just fine.
But if I open it right away after closing it, the screen goes blank, though the laptop seems to be running just fine.
Hitting Fn-CRT/LCD does nothing, nor do any other of the function keys. I even tried hooking up an external monitor and banging away at the CRT/LCD combo, but the external monitor is just as blank as the laptop LCD.
Hard power-down will restart the laptop and the screen comes back fine, but you've lost any unsaved work .....
I have a Dell E4300.A few days ago 2 vertical lines appeared on my screen, now there are around 10, different colors and sizes.When i press on the bottom of my display, where is the Dell logo, they disappear.I removed the display cover and, i think, the problem is the band in the middle, not the flex band connected to the motherboard.
Can the bottom of the display be changed? Is something like an inverter, but my screen is LED, so i belive that is a different mechanism. Is there any way to fix this without replacing the display?I checked with an external monitor, it works fine.
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.
I was asked to take a look at an E5500. This is what I found:
a) a screen that could only be seen with the correct reflected light; and b) outboard screen working perfectly.
This is what I did:
a) tried a known replacement inverter board and this didn't solve the problem; b) tried a known working LCD screen and this didn't work; c) checked the video cable and it looks fine; and d) since there's no screen switch that might be stuck and I'm assuming that all functions are software controlled.
I did a clean install of xp pro. Still no good. I looked for a SMD e.g. a fuse and found none.
