Dell Precision M65 :: Will Not Power On

Mar 5, 2013

Recently, I got a used Dell Precision M65 (Christmas of 2012 to be exact).When I first got it It worked great, Then a started realizing that a few issues.These issues included flickering when 100% of the CPU is being used, Blue Screen Of Death when running multiple applications at once, Mouse lagging (Blue screen was the frequent of the issues).on March 3rd ,I was laying on the couch playing games on the system when I turned my head briefly to talk to someone, When I turned my head back towards my laptop the screen was black and the laptop was off. Assuming the battery had died, I plugged it to the charger, pressed the power button, and nothing happened.I got up to assure that is was firmly connected to the wall outlet, And it was.So my laptop has shut-off and will not power on at all.It's acting as if it's not receiving power at all.The green light on the Dell charger is green until plugged into the laptop. It goes out immediately.The battery is fully charged for the battery indicator shows so.What's going on?Is my CPU bad?

Dell :: Precision M6400 : Is It Possible To Put The GPU Into A Low Power Mode

Apr 11, 2009

Precision M6400 : Is it possible to put the GPU (2700M) into a low power mode ?

Often, when I'm on battery, I do low GPu work, like text editing and compilation, or giving presentations. Also I use XP 64 bit; all low GPU work.

Can I downclock the GPU or undervolt it or do something to conserve energy ?

Dell Precision M3800 :: Power On Sometimes Works

Mar 28, 2014

Shouldn't I be able to simply press and release the power button to power on the laptop for a cold boot?

I'm not sure if I'm powering on my M3800 properly or if it's a problem.

All scenarios are after the laptop had been completely shut down and powered cable attached.

(1) Just pressing and releasing the power key powers it up sometimes
(2) When 1 doesn't work, sometimes pressing and holding the power key (for ? secs) will power it up
(3) When neither 1 nor 2 will work, sometimes double-pressing the power key will power it up

The times it doesn't power up, the power button lights, keyboard lights and goes off, then power light goes off.

It eventually always powers up (so far) but would like to make sure it's not a hardware problem.

Dell Precision M4800 :: Slow Performance Without Proper Power Adapter After BIOS A8 Update?

Sep 19, 2014

I recently updated my Dell m4800 to BIOS A8 with Windows 7 64. I had been using a collection of older power adapters from my previous Dell m4400 without any issues. After the update, wow. A huge performance hit if I do not have the 19.5 volt and 9.23 amp adapter connected.

The m4400 power adapter is 19.5 volt and 6.7 amp. Pretty close right? Not any more.

I do have it connected to a Dell docking station almost all the time. Just checked. They are both 6.7 amp.

What changed in BIOS A8 and what the deal is with the performance? Looks like I need to request a new docking station, but I'm not sure IT will believe my story.

Dell :: Precision M90 And Precision M 6300 WHO IS THE ODM?

Mar 11, 2009

I am trying to find out who the ODM ( original design manufacturer) is for these precision models, dell no longer sells them, perhaps there is another channel for buying one besides Dell???

If anyone has any information please let me know and also what model not just the ODM's name.

For example ALienware laptops are made by the ODM Clevo which also sells the same Chassis without the alienware bling and price under the name of Sager, Averatec also as I recall ....

Dell Latitude D800 :: Will Not Power On / No BIOS Information Displayed / No Power On Self Test

Apr 16, 2013

I have a Dell Latitude D800 that will not power on. When the power button is pushed the green power indicator light comes on, the CDROM spins for a moment, but then nothing happens, there is no BIOS information displayed, no power on self test, no Dell logo. It just sits there with the green power light on.I have tried removing the power & battery then pressing the power button for 10 seconds (actually, I have tried as long as 60 seconds). I have tried to turn on with the power connected but not the battery. I have tried removing the connector cable for the power button and the connector cable for the display and then reseating them.

Dell :: Switching From Ac Power To Battery Power Causes Black Screen

Lenovo T400 / T500 :: Power Manager Alerts That 65w AC Adapter Is Giving Not Enough Power

Oct 23, 2013

I have just installed an i7 2670Qm on my T420 today.The machine will crash pretty soon after booting up, with the screen having colorful vertical and horizontal lines before it restarts itself and give the memory error beeping pattern (1 beep-pause-3 beeps-3 beeps-pause-1 beep).So then I took out one RAM from the bottom, and the machine appears to work normally again, more or less.
 
In the OS (Win7 64), The power manager alerts me that the 65w AC adapter is giving not enough power, so the laptop is running on battery. I thought I just need a 90W AC brick so the laptop will work as it should, so I am arranging a 90w one to come in later. But on a second thought, if the battery cannot start the laptop with 8GB of RAM properly.
 
Is it the CPU or RAM or Mobo or something else? Where should I look?The machine works fine with the previous CPU i3-2310m and 8GB of RAM.The RAM modules I have are 2 x 4GB Samsung 2Rx8 PC3-12800S-11-11-F3.The BIOS version is updated to the latest 1.46.

HP Pavilion G6-2148TX :: Laptop Will Only Power On With Power Cable Disconnected At Motherboard After Fan Replacement

Oct 21, 2014

After replacing the fan, I have a power up issue with the laptop. Basically, the laptop will only power on with the power cable disconnected at the motherboard. It was by mistake that after the fan was replaced and everything was put back together, that I noticed that the battery was not charging.
 
I then reopened the machine and reconnected the power cable to the motherboard and nothing - no power.
 
When plugging in the power source with the battery in place, the LED adjacent to the power socket lights up WHITE then stays ORANGE and will not power up. No other lights, no fan noise, nothing.
 
If I remove the battery, the LED adjacent to the power socket lights up WHITE and stays white however will not power up either. Same agin, no other LEDs, not fan noise, nothing.
 
I have now opened the machine back up and disconnected the power from the motherboard. Put it all back together and the laptop powers up as normal with the battery and it works fine. (Well until the battery runs out anyway).

Acer Aspire 6930 :: Will Not Power Up Even After Power Reset

Oct 13, 2014

I have an Aspire 6930 that suddenly died and will not power on.  The LED power button was dark and unresponsive.  I performed a power reset and the blue light on the power button came back on until I pressed the button to try to restart the laptop.  When I did that, the blue LED immediately went dark and stayed that way until I did another power reset.  It never gets to the point of anything powering on.  Is it a problem with the battery or it the laptop toast?
 
This is a real bummer since I just replaced the hard drive a few weeks ago and replaced Windows Vista with Linux Mint (which btw is blazing fast compared to Vista).

Dell :: Precision M6400delays?

Nov 15, 2008

has anyone ordered and received a 17" Precision M6400 or M6400 Covet? Can anyone post when they ordered and received?

I just gave up on a month-and-a-half old order, and am trying to gauge whether I can actually expect the new one I placed to arrive. The sales rep, of course, will tell you "Oh Dec. 2nd is the worst case scenario, it should arrive before then!"

Ordered 9/26. Gave up and cancelled order 11/5.

Ordered again 11/5. Expected delivery: 12/2. (But will it make it)?

Oh and if you ordered a Covet, can you say whether it was glossy or matte screen? There seems to be great confusion on this! .......

Dell :: Latitude Vs. Precision ..

general differences b/w the two Dell business models? I'm looking to buy a 15" notebook, and I think the business computers may be better than the consumer ones. However, I'm having trouble understanding the different models' differences b/w each other on Dell's website.

Dell :: Vostro Vs Precision

Apr 27, 2010

I'm looking to upgrade my cheap consumer-grade laptop with something more robust. My uses are mostly software development as well as photography (Photoshop, etc.). I'm not interested in using this new machine for gaming (that would be a very secondary use).

I'm looking for a 17" laptop, so am considering both the Vostro 3700 and Precision M6500. I understand the system differences between these two machines, as well as the cost differences. Ideally, I'd like whatever I buy to last 3+ years without falling too far behind in technology, but on the other hand the Precision is very expensive (budgets suck).

Thus, would the new Vostro 3700, maxed out on configuration, be a worthwhile investment or, since I'm going to spend the money, should I go the extra mile and get the Precision? What would I miss (other than the graphics card mostly) if I go Vostro?

I've been agonizing over this for a good month or so and realize making a decision like this in a vacuum isn't going to happen, so let me know your thoughts.

Dell :: Second HDD For Latitude/Precision

Sep 20, 2008

Based on this post[url] it would appear the Media bay only allows for 1.8" hard disks!

Is this true? Can anyone confirm this is true for both models?

2xHDD is a must for me - running VMs on a single disk is a _real_ drag!

Dell :: Upgrading To 4GB RAM On A M65 Precision

Sep 9, 2009

So I bought a M65 precision a few years ago (3-4)

Now that a good windows OS 64bit is available, I decided to to upgrade my ram from 2gb to the maximum 4gb.

After seeing that my computer recognizes 4GB but is only using 3GB I got pissed off.

After some research I found this link:
[url]

"So you pay a really huge premium (compared with 2Gb RAM) to get 4Gb of RAM ... and so how much memory do you expect the BIOS to make available to the OS. For a Dell M65 the answer is just 3.071Gb.

Response from Dell ...

The processor only has 32 address lines, limiting it to an addressing map of 4 gigabytes.

The chipset, PCI devices, PCI express region, and video cards use some of this map, and the BIOS correctly reports this range as unavailable to the operating system. If the user installs 4 GB of physical memory, then the processor has no way to address the memory that overlaps with these regions, already in use. The chipset directs memory access to the appropriate device rather than sending it to random access memory (RAM).

On Dell's new line of desktops, PCI express uses 500 megabytes (MB) in the map; integrated video takes 256 MB right below PCI express, leaving 3.25 GB of memory available to the operating system via RAM. In some cases, less RAM is available depending on what other add-in cards are installed.

Dell :: XPS 16 Vs Precision M4400

Apr 28, 2009

(note: I posted this in the XPS/Studio section, and I'm reposting it here since it pertains to both)

I am looking for a notebook for my girlfriend. She studies architecture, so she needs something with a powerful GPU, high resolution display, but not too heavy (she has to lug it with her every day all over campus). We don't want to spend more than ~$1500, and hopefully get it for less than that with discounts (either through the University or her mother's job) .....

Dell :: Precision M90 Exchange

Oct 29, 2007

so after complaining to dell many times about terrible heats and non expected shutdowns due to heat they have arranged a replacement for my system, one in the sig.

They called me on friday saying they where going to book an M6300 with the LOWER 1600M, so I opposed as i didnt payed the premium of having the 2500m just for nothing. So now they are looking at 3 main options.

Money Back

Exchange for XPS M1730

Gime me a 1600M and then upgrade it to 2600M.

IMO money back is the best option, eventhough the XPS M1730 base is just a bit more expensive, like 300 eur = 430$, i can make sure that i get it with the stuff i want, I dont really trust them on exchanging it to the base XPS and im sure they will lower stuff like 120gb hd, t7300 , CDRW-DVD etc, Im completelly opposed to a 1600m and exchange for 2600m as Im not even sure if it will ever be released.

What should I expect from them? I have really no clue on that, i have the maximum warranty you can have on the computer that is NBD Multi Care, so from what i can read in the specs of the warranty a replacement cannot be lower of performance in anycase than its predecessor.

If they were to upgrade me to the xps with shity stuff, by that i mean parts that are not available in the web but they can order in an specific situation like mine, should I really complain, Im reading posts of an upcoming 8800GTX for laptops, should i just ask for my money and wait for it to be released? Are they gonna put it in SLI ?
