Dell :: XPS 1340 Volume Control Button/missing WIFI Button
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.
Acer :: Delay Between Pressing Fn Button And On-screen Symbol Appearing
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.
Sony :: Setting Special Button Function? (Vaio Button)
I have an S series and when I press the silver VAIO button it mutes the sound.
I haven't found where to change the function of this button.
I've only removed the following Sony apps:
pmb 5 and pmb plugins (click2disk/image optimizer/movie story)
vaio content metadata intelligent analyzing manager
vaio transfer support
Unfortunately I can't remember the default function of this button. Perhaps it was the media gallery? I'd like to change it anyhow.
Dell :: Upgrade Screen On A Latitude E6500?
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..

Dell :: Latitude D620 Screen Is Blacked Out
A user of mine reported a problem with her screen being black. You can actually see the windows logon prompt but its really dark.
I set her up on a port replicator with an external monitor, which displays fine. So is it the display on the laptop monitor thats causing the problem? Its a Dell Latitude D620 noteboob
Dell :: Latitude D620 Screen Goes Blank When Shut-opened
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 .....
Dell :: Latitude D630 Vs Latitude E6400
The price of 2nd user Latitude D630's seems to be holding up quite well in the UK. Does this indicate that it is still a popular machine and favoured over the E6400?
I briefly checked out an E6400 the other day and for a choice between machines of approximately similar spec I would opt for the D630 rather than the newer E6400.
I would be interested in opinions from users who have experience with both models.
Dell :: Latitude On ECM As Compared To Latitude On FLASH
We are looking at getting some Latitude E4310 systems. Since fast boot up to access the web is important, we see that the Latitude On FLASH option is required.
The downside is that Dell will not install this along with the WiMax card option. They have a combo WiFi and WiMax card, but it can not be installed with the FLASH option.
They also list Latitude On ECM as an option instead of On FLASH. The ECM runs $149 more. With ECM, the system can then have the WiMax card which would be nice.
The people at Dell have not been able to provide a good explanation on what the ECM option does. There is a write up on the FLASH option, but not a good one on ECM. Does anyone know what the ECM does differently than the FLASH?
Key points of the FLASH option are (we need these functions):
Boot Fast, 8-10 seconds
Wi-Fi and LAN 10/100/1000
Web access via browser Firefox Browser
Supports Java and Adobe Flash
Read Microsoft Office
Edit Microsoft Office 2000
Dell :: Latitude D630/ Latitude E6500
I've got a choice at the moment between two latitudes:
1) Dell Latitude D630: 2.2ghz C2D, 3Gb RAM, 120gb HDD, dvd/cdrw drive, vista, nvidia Quaddro GFX
2) Dell Latitude E6500: 2.26ghz C2D, 3Gb RAM, 80gb HDD, DVDRW, Vista,
Which do you reckon i ought to go for between the two?
The laptop will be used primarily between home and university, so will be taken between the two places in my shoulder messenger bag, so will probably take a few bumps
Dell :: Eject Button- In Studio 15
i got a studio15 laptop on 25th of feb. after 4-5 days it start giving me the eject button problem on start up. the button remains on for 2-4 minutes and the touch panel:confused does not work. i contacted dell for the problem, they recommend me to update BIOS, but does not work.
Dell :: Eject Button Not Working
I recently purchased the studio xps 16 and did a clean install.
Every one of the touch buttons works like the sound buttons, but for some reason the eject button will not respond, and i have to go to my computer to eject a disc every time.
What was also missing was that when i adjusted the volume level, no bar would come up on my screen showing me what level it was at. Although minor problems, I was wondering if it is possibly a driver that i haven't downloaded?
Dell :: SXPS 13 - Media Button Fix?
I just got my SXPS 13 in the mail today, and it seems that the touch sensative buttons do not work,
I've read on the forum and others of the issue and a manual reset fixes the issues, or upgrading the win7 eliminates the problem.
P.S. I bought the SXPS without the leather accent so if anyone wants to see some pics i can snap a couple
Dell :: Nothign Happens When I Hit Power Button
on my m1330...
i restarted, and then it would not turn on.
I hit the power button, took off the battery, tried every thing i could think of... (including holding the power button, cause who knows,)
so... i decided to give dell a call...
Despite my lack of service tag or warranty, i was instructed to hold "Power + FN + Esc"
This booted to dell diagnostic mode...from here, i was instructed to cancel right away, then try to boot normally, which worked.
Dell :: Possible To Remove Mouse Button
A year ago (November 2007) there was a thread titled Possible to remove key from keyboard? which is now closed. I have a similar question and one of the mods may want to merge the two threads and open the combined one until the topic is thoroughly discussed.
In any case, here is my issue. My wife has an XPS that is only about four months old.
Suddenly the left mouse button is stuck partially pressed down. If this were a keyboard key I would just pop it off and clean underneath it. But, I don't know if you can remove the mouse buttons that way or not. Does anybody have any suggestion? And before someone helpfully offers returning it to Dell for warranty work - do you want to do without your computer for a month? She doesn't either, so that's a non-starter.
Dell :: Media Button Test
how the media buttons stop working after a resume and how the eject button stays on.
i have been testing something and would like others to try this out. follow me here:
i notice the eject button light stays on when i close the lid and then pull the usb cable out (connected to a Dell 24" widescreen with usb port which connects: 2 mouse and 2 printers and a external drive).
*IF* i disconnect the usb first and wait for the full disconnect sound and THEN close lid, the eject button doesn't light up.
i'm thinking... and it could be completely wong here but the eject button might have something to do with shut down and boot up of usb devices and is going though some sort of a systems check? why? i dunno. it's been rather sporatic but i head to class 4x's a week and i shut down differently and i have experienced different results. testing a few things out.
Dell :: Studio 15 Touchpad Button Depressed
Is there a way to "re-cushion" or do something to make the "press" of the button more with a nice, comfortable, normal distance press versus a small dull short distance press.
Basically my left touchpad button has worn down and isn't as "springy" as my right touchpad button which acts like new due to relatively less use.
If I told suppot at dell that the button was like this do you think they would repair it and if so how would they do it?
Do they have to remove the whole plate around the keyboard or something? Because that looks really set in.
Dell :: Studio 1535 Eject Button
Recently (as in, the past couple of months), my touch-sensitive media panel has been having some issues above and beyond the common complaints of the sticking eject button. Don't get me wrong, it still does that, but it adds something new to the mix:
More often than not, the eject button does not function at all, even after it unsticks itself.
Once I boot up, it sticks like normal until I boot into Windows, then attempts to eject about 10 times, and then stops. However, most of the time, it will no longer eject when pressed after this. Touching the button will cause it to illuminate like usual, but the DVD drive does not respond, regardless of whether there's a disk in the drive or not.
Sometimes, it works just fine for hours on end, ejecting every time I press the button. Sometimes it starts out working, but I'll come back to it half an hour later and it will no longer function.
Also worth noting is that when the capacitive eject button does not function, neither does the Fn+F10 keyboard shortcut.
I don't believe it's an issue with the DVD drive itself, as I can still eject via software while this happens, by going to My Computer, right clicking the drive and selecting "Eject" (although this occasionally causes an instant Blue Screen of Death).
However, I don't believe it's a touch panel issue either, because I've had the entire panel and ribbon cable replaced by Dell, and there was no difference. Also, all the other buttons (volume, playback controls) work perfectly when the eject is not sticking.
I also doubt it's a keyboard issue, because this started happening with my old keyboard, which I later replaced with my current backlit keyboard, but the Fn+F10 shortcut still does not work when the eject button does not work.
With all this, it left me to believe that the only thing it could be is software, so I completely reformatted the hard drive, left no partitions intact, not even the Dell Recovery partition, and re-installed Windows Vista 64-bit from scratch, but as luck would have it, it was doing exactly the same thing within 30 minutes of loading Windows for the first time.
I am really out of ideas here. I just can't think of anything else that could possibly be causing this, unless it's an issue with the DVD drive itself, which as I said earlier, is unlikely because ejecting via software works. Also, Dell refuses to replace the DVD drive anyway after I sent them basically this exact same message, because they "do not believe that there is a problem with the DVD drive".
Any ideas on why this might be happening? If it were just the regular sticky eject button, I would not be bothered as long as it worked as normal once it stopped sticking, but this is not the case.
Dell :: Studio 1745 Eject Button Not Working
1. Eject Button - I can't get either the eject button (near F12 key), or the touch eject button (that lights up) to eject any CD's. I have to go into My Computer, and right click ...and then eject it that way. Anyone know of a way to get the eject buttons to work? Should be able to use one of the eject buttons.
Note: I did try the holding the power button if for 30 seconds, and then rebooted. This didn't work for me.
2. Brightness - what FN + ? key adjusts the brightness of the screen? When the AC cord is plugged in, it's bright. When I disconnect it, it dims. I'd like to adjust the brightness to where the screen is the same brightness when it's on either AC or Battery.
Dell :: Power Button Delay And BSOD In SXPS 16
A few days ago I noticed that when I pressed the power button to turn on the computer, there was a delay of about five seconds before the computer reacted..
That was weird, I thought, but nothing unbearable. Today when I started up my computer, not only was there a delay, but when it did start up I got the BSOD.
It was only there for a few seconds so I couldn't read much of what it said.............................................
Dell :: M1530 Left Mouse Button Not Working
The left mouse button on my m1530 has taken a battering. It has gone all lop-sided, crunches every time I press it, and now doesn't work at all unless I press down on it very very hard with two fingers.
I work fast, so this is an incredibly frustrating thing to happen, as everything now takes ten times longer to do.
Dell :: Remapping MediaDirect Button [ Studio 17 TouchButton]
I know this has been covered a billion times but a lot of the posts I am reading are ancient.
What is the best / latest method of remapping the Dell Media Direct button on my Dell Studio 17 (touch button).
I would like it to open something else.... e.g. itunes...
Could I assign the button to perform a task? e.g. defrag C drive or am I being a little too adventurous?
Dell :: XPS M1330 Mute Button Does Not Function In Win7
Having kind of a strange problem with my lappy and Win7. My mute button has no reaction on pressing it while all other media buttons still do their actions. Does someone also have the same issue as mine with m1330 and Win7 ?
OS: Windows 7 Ultimate x64
QuickSet and Sigmatel drivers for Vista x64 installed (Had same issue with Windows 7 default audio drivers)
Dell :: Pressed The Media Direct Button & Now XP Won't Start
Basically I bought a Dell Inspirion 1525 with Vista, Downgraded to XP, had to change the Hard drive to IDA for the system to recognise XP. Been running fine then I pressed the MD button by mistake thinking it was the power button, it gets as far as 'Building you MD files' then says ''DMD cannot access your hard drive. This maybe because you have enabled Microsoft Bit Locker (Drive Encryption)'' etc etc. Now i'm hoping that means it hasn't wiped my HD cos i've read a load of people who've had problems with that button wiping everything out but i think it can't recognise my HD cos I switched it to IDA.
Anyways whenever I press the power button now it keeps loading MD and doing the same cycle and I can't load XP at all, tried loading it in safe mode and it crashes. PLEASE HELP ME!!! I can't get windows on at all and I really don't care about MD, infact when I can access windows again i'll be researching how to deactivate the MD button so this doesn't happen again unless someone can provide that info aswell

Acer :: 7730 WiFi Button
A friend of mine has an Acer 7730 and I think his WiFi button is broke. Every time he presses it, it spouts a random set or r's when the light flashes (every 5secs ish). It was suggested he had a virus and so a full reinstall was done, but now I've looked at it I think its a dodgy key! The original keyboard has been replaced as I think something was spilt on it, but of course the keys down the left are seperate.
So long story short, he cant get on the internet as pressing the key makes any text go rrrr[[[[]]]]] etc etc. Is there anyway to enable WiFi without this button? and can it be replaced?

HP/Compaq :: Dv7: Mute Button Turning On And Off By Itself
my mute button at the top of my computer functions, but does not change color when i mute or unmute something i'm watching or listening to. it does however make a popping noise and change color at what seems like random, just when clicking through websites. it will change color and making this popping noise but it won't actually mute. the color changing is not really an issue for me it's just the random "pop" sound i get that can get very annoying and have no idea how to get it running again properly. it's been like this for several weeks and can't trace it back to anything i've done around that time.
HP/Compaq :: Dv7 Media Button Failure
So yesterday after getting home i decided to use my laptop. Well i opened up the screen and noticed my wifi and sound buttons were orange but the sound was still on and so was the wifi. First things first i tried new drivers... No luck. After this i decided to open up the laptop and check the cable. Durring this i got the wifi button to work for about 5 seconds im not sure what i did but it still dosent work. I even tried another media bar cover from a working dv7 still no luck. So does anyone know where my problem might be or do i have to send this laptop into hp?
HP/Compaq :: How To Remap Quickplay Button Win 7
I had a registry hack to remap the quickplay button that worked fine under XP. This is the touch sensitive control at the top of my dv5t next to the mute, volume, play controls. Under XP the location was:
But it doesn't appear to work under Win 7. Does anyone know the location for Win 7?
I don't want to install Quickplay, and didn't need to under XP. All the other buttons work fine out of the box.
I've seen two locations for Vista:
Change the key "Main" to the path of the program you want (sans the quotation marks if you copy it as a path). The original value of this is something like C:Program Files (x86)HPQuickplayOP.exe (no quotation marks). Replace that. I replaced it with C:Program Files (x86)Microsoft Origami Experience Pack 2.0Origami Experienceox.exe (Origami central executable).
You can reassign the quickplay button to open any program by changing the "QAction" value in [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREWow6432NodeHewlett-PackardHP Quick Launch Buttons].
