Dell Precision M6500 :: Shutting Down After 4 Seconds When Turned On

Oct 8, 2011

The problem Im currently having with my laptop is that every time i turn it on, it last about 4 seconds before it shuts down. I can only see the power and battery light on before shutting down. I dont even see the screen turning on. I try going to diagnostic mode and the only thing that changes is that my keyboard lights go on, but then after 4 seconds laptop shuts down. What to do or what might be causing this??

Dell :: Car Charger For Precision M6500

May 3, 2010

Dell doesn't have this, but are there any good third part solutions. I guess the reason Dell doesn't have it is that the computer demands a rather hefty PSU, but still...

Dell :: Precision M6500, SCAM Or Communication In ?

Dec 23, 2009

How do you order i7 920 processors ? It doesn't give me such option on the website (all it shows in processor option is "Mobile Precision M6500 Silver Base")

so I called dell sales team to find out which processor is there, and on the website it shows "Up to Intelģ CoreTM i7- 920XM Quad Core Extreme processors" so i thought it might be as the only option and goes as standard),

they told me that m6500 is only available with i7 820 (1.73hz) and the machine is upgradable to i7 920. heh ? seems like scam

Meantime I can't choose 2 HDD with 500GB, as primary only ATA and secondary is only SATA.

Dell Precision M4400 :: Starts For Like 3-4 Seconds Nothing Appears On The Screen

Jul 27, 2013

I have this old Laptop that i started using recently worked fine (this one heats so much and i mean up to 95%) until today when it fails booting (well sometimes after a couple of tried it starts sometimes it takes hours).

The laptop starts for like 3-4 seconds nothing appears on the screen,the fan stops working and after a sec i hear a beep and everything turns OFF.

I notice that when  i plug the charger and start it  caps and scroll lock is always turned on and num lock flashes 22 times until it stays turned on.What does the flashing num lock mean in dell code and how do i fix it.

Dell :: M6500 What RAM

Feb 20, 2010

I'm planing to buy a M6500 with 4GB in 2 DIMMS and buy 2 more DIMMS somewhere else.

And I have a few questions.

What RAM I should pick from DELL, 1066mhz or 1333mhz?

Also what type of memory should I be looking on Ebay the 204pin or 200pin?

And the last one, which brands of memory are good?

Dell :: M6500 W/ I5 520M

May 19, 2010

I just ordered one of these Precisions, and I'm just wondering if they take advantage of the integrated graphics on the CPU (like for switchable graphics power saving)?

Or would the engineers just completely disable the integrated graphics because of the discrete ATI M7740?

Dell :: M4500 Vs M6500

Apr 19, 2010

I am in the process of specing a new laptop for engineering work. I will do a little bit of CAD, but mainly processor intensive mathematical simulations in Java, Matlab, or Scilab.

I am considering purchasing either the m4500 or m6500. I don't think I will mind lugging around the m6500. The positive attributes, as I see them, of the two machines are shown below.

Other than that they seem like they are on par, though I can't help but think the m6500 will be able to better handle the cooling requirements of their components than the m4500. What does everyone think? Is it even fair to compare the two?

m6500 pro's:
Graphics power (I would get ATI graphics)
1600 mhz memory supported
4 RAM slots
USB 3.o .....

Dell :: Can I Really Use This Power Adapter For My M6500?

May 11, 2010

I really would like to get two of these, since they are less than 1/3 of the price of the adapters I can get in Norway, but I'm a bit suspicious.

The original adapter for my Precision M6500 is 210 watts (which is totally crazy, but I guess the Fire GL card eats most of it), and this is rated at 90w. But will it even work? Here's the eBay auction, it's in Great Britain:

Dell :: Why Can't My M6500 Decide What's The First Drive?

May 5, 2010

I have a problem I've never had with any stationary computer (I have never had a dual hard drive laptop before...):

I have one 320 meg drive which I use as little as possible in drive bay one and another, larger drive in drive bay two.

An expensive program I use for work is registered to the drive in bay one, and I can't get a new license, so I would like it to last as long as possible, which is why I only use it there as a kind of dongle.

For the software licensing stuff to work it has to be seen as the first drive by Windows, but not necessarily the one I boot from

Dell :: Upgrading (boxed) M6400 To M6500

Dec 3, 2009

I've just recieved the M6400 covet edition. Dell has given me the choice to return it boxed and get a full refund. I can then order the new M6500, however, I will need to pay at least 750 Euro extra for the faster processor and graphic card.

QX9300 to Core I7 920xm
FX 3700M to FX 3800M

The rest of the specs are the same. Is the worth extra money to upgrade for a computer that will be 8 x faster than the current M6400?

I have to admit though than my hands are itching badly to unbox the m6400.

Dell :: M6500 1600 Mhz And 1333 Mhz Memory

Apr 20, 2010

After reading the m6500 discussion thread it sounds like the consensus is that 1600 mhz memory makes no performance difference. But then a lot of folks seem to have configured their machines with 1600 memory and the below review suggests that the memory will help.

http://www.legitreviews.com/article/842/1/

So to have this fully hashed out, I think we need to answer the below questions:
1) If you order the extreme processor does the BIOS recognize the 1600 mhz memory?
2) Even if it does recognize it does it make a difference?
3) Why did people with the extreme processor order the 1600 mhz memory?
4) Can we fill in the WEI scores for memory using 4 and 8 GB of both 1333 and 1600 memory with the extreme processor?

Dell :: Where Can I Find Out What Docking Stations Are Compatible With My M6500?

May 10, 2010

I have tried looking at Dell's webpage, but couldn't find any lists over compatible docking stations. Not to mention that when trying to "buy" another identical computer dockings are never mentioned in the "Buy accessories for your Dell" subpage. I have seen a few cheap, used docking stations on the web, but I don't know if they will work. This is the one I can get really cheap:

Would that work on my Preceision M6500? It's for my second and third office (a.k.a. my wife's pet shop and our cabin by the sea), so I need two dockings. And this way I can save 80 % of the cost!

For some stupid reason the M6500 has no SPDIF output, and I see that there is one on this docking. But I don't care if that works or not, I only use SPDIF at home, and I have an USB sound card with SPDIF there.

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 :: M6500 For VMware + Visual Studio 2008/2010: A Good Idea?

Mar 28, 2010

I'm looking to purchase a powerful notebook for my development needs. I use MS Visual Studio 2008 (in a VMware virtual machine), currently running on my DELL Precision T7400 desktop workstation (Dual Intel Xeon X5482, 3.20GHz / 32GB RAM / 4 x 300GB SAS HD with 15,000rpm). This thing is a pleasure to work with, everything just flies, even when multiple virtual machines are running at same time.

In next months I need to spend some time developing and testing at my customer's site. Now I need something comparable to my T7400 in means of performance, but portable. My first idea was, of course, a M6500. It seems to be a very powerful beast. However, until now I have no experience with such "mobile workstations". Can this thing really deliver what it promises?

Here is my configuration: .....

Dell :: 1558 I7 A04 Shutting Down

Mar 28, 2010

Thought I'd start a new thread on this one.

I got my new laptop last week, arrivied with BIOS version A03 loaded so I immediately flashed it with A04. All was working nicely for a few days and then suddenly I've been experiencing random shutdowns.

After reading through every thread I can find on the topic, most people seem to think that A04 fixed the shutdown/overheating/fan problem but it would not seem to be the case for me.

Has anyone else had similar issues? I'm gonna give Dell a call tomorrow and get the low-down but would be nice to hear from anyone in the same boat.

Dell :: M1530 Not Shutting Down

Jan 7, 2009

Sometimes when I choose shutdown, the computer goes through the shutdown process but restarts right away. This happened twice in a row. I'm not sure if this is related to power settings (High Performance, AC plugged in). Eventually it'll stop but it's kind of annoying because i have to wait until it fully turns off and make sure that it doesn't restart.

Dell XPS 13 :: Won't Boot Up - No Response When Turned On

Feb 10, 2013

We have a new (1month old) XPS13, which will not boot up. It was being used to watch a video online, and then when that had finished, the lid was closed. When we came to turn it on again, there is no response.

The laptop is plugged in, with a light on the power pack. Holding the power button down doesn't illicit a response. I have seen some mention online of booting up into diagnostic money keeping the function key down and pressing the power button, but still no response.

There seems to be no way of telling whether there is any charge in the battery, so difficult to tell what is causing the issue.

What else could be causing it? The graphics card?

Dell :: Studio XPS 16 Spontaneously Shutting Down?

Oct 31, 2009

I got a refurb Studio 16 with RGBLED display last week. Had a few dead pixels and had the screen replaced with next day service. The technician did a good job, although I almost had a heart attack watching him strip the laptop apart.

The new screen looks great, but now the machine is randomly shutting down (NOT gracefully). I haven't actually witnessed it, but instead of going to sleep, when I come back to the laptop after an extended period, it's off and Windows 7 is complaining of an improper shutdown.

Event log shows:

The system has rebooted without cleanly shutting down first. This error could be caused if the system stopped responding, crashed, or lost power unexpectedly.

Dell :: Studio XPS 16 | Not Shutting Down Completely

Mar 9, 2009

I am facing a strange problem with my Studio XPS 16. It was working fine with no BSOD, crashes, hang-up etc for a week or so.

I was watching a movie this weekend and laptop was on batteries. Well by the time movie got over only 15% of battery charge was remaining (I am having a 6 cell battery). I plugged in the laptop for charging.

After while I shutdown the laptop and surprisingly after Windows did the shutdown the Laptop was not shut down and the white light on the power button as well as on both sides of the laptop (on the side of hinges) were blinking i.e
