Dell :: Random Temperature Jumps?

Aug 7, 2009

My temperature at webbrowsing and idling is usually 36 degrees with my Zalman2000 at Balanced battery seeting.

However, sometimes, sporadically, the cpu temps go up to 63 for a real quick moment (a second or less) and comes back to the late 30's. Normal?

Dell XPS 15z :: Pointer Jumps When Tap Using Trackpad

Mar 4, 2013

Suddenly, after a year of use, the Cypress trackpad has become inaccurate. The pointer judders when I move it across the screen and when I tap to open or close something or anywhere on the screen, the pointer move slightly (usually up and to right by a small amount) when I tap. This is frustrating when trying to do simple tasks. This is not caused by a change in senstivity on the trackpad. I have checked all the defaults settings in case something changed. I am running Windows 7 on a XPS 15z.

Dell Inspiron 15R SE :: Cursor Jumps Around When Typing?

Apr 7, 2013

I have an Inspiron 15R SE 7520 and while typing, the cursor frequently jumps around and will begin typing in a previously typed line.  This is extremely frustrating.  I am running Windows 8 and have looked to find where I can adjust the sensitivity of my touchpad but can't find it anywhere.  I've seen other posts for other computers that suggest uninstalling the touchpad driver and reinstalling it. What I should do for my specific laptop to stop this from happening? Do I need to uninstall and reinstall the touchpad driver.  If so, how do I do that for the Dell Inspiron 15R SE 7520 running Windows 8?   I'm also keeping my hands off the touchpad while typing but the cursor still moves.

Dell XPS M1530 :: Cursor Jumps Around When Typing?

Jun 18, 2009

This has been happening when typing emails in Outlook. It will be interesting to see if it happens while typing this. So far it's been OK. I have a Dell XPS M1530. There it did it just then, the 1530 jumped into the subject field. It always jumps into somewhere I have already typed. So it doesn't just happen in Outlook. It is very annoying. I am using a Bluetooth mouse, but also there is a touchpad just under my hands. Could it be that I bump it by mistake?

I don't know it that's the problem as the touchpad cursor is different to the typing cursor. I'm watching the touchpad cursor and it's not moving. The typing cursor is behaving itself now. I have just moved the touchpad cursor up the screen a bit and the typing cursor is still behaving itself.

While I am typing my hands are well clear of the touchpad. It just jumped again, and it did not jump to where the touchpad cursor was, so it's not related to that.

Dell XPS 15 L521x :: Multi-finger Scroll Jumps?

Feb 9, 2013

I love the hardware design of the XPS 15, except that the touchpad is unusable for scrolling.  My old Latitude 6520 at least could use the scroll zones well, but with the buttons on the L521x being part of the touchpad, the horizontal scroll zone impacts button usage and isn't worth it.The big issue is the multi-finger scrolling jumps significantly when lifting fingers.  I've tried every version of the driver I could find, and they all have this issue.  If you make sure you completely stop scrolling before lifting fingers, then lift one at a time, I can usually avoid the jump, but that take more time than just using the keys to scroll.

Is there a way to either disable horizontal scrolling using scroll zones or fix the 2 finger scrolling to not jump?  Except for that issue (and some sporadic wifi issues that my be fixed with newest driver), this laptop would be perfect for me.

Dell :: XPS 15Z Keyboard - Cursor Jumps All Over The Place While Composing Emails And Letters

Jul 12, 2011

I have an issue with the keyboard on my new 15z. The cursor seems to have a mind of its own and jumps all over the place while I am composing emails and letters. This happens at random. What is causing this. I have tried disabling the mouse pad and using a USB mouse but the problem persists. I have tried being extremely careful not to touch the arrow keys located in the bottom right hand corner of the keyboard area but the problem continues

HP/Compaq :: Dv5 Jumps To French. How Do I Get English Back

Jan 17, 2009

My girlfriend has an HP dv5-1033ca.

It works fine but every now and then when she is using it the character set jumps to French and we can't figure out how to get English back. Any ideas ?

The last time it happened, she was browsing Yahoo using Explorer. She accidentally hits a key (easy thing to do on that keyboard) and wala, its in French. Then she has no option but to reboot. When she logs back in, its back in English.

Lenovo T400 / T500 :: Cursor Jumps When Typing

Jan 13, 2008

When typing in a document, in wordpad for instance, the cursor (and text entry point) will suddenly jump elsewhere. Typically up a couple of lines.  Since it happens while typing, I end up corrupting the document.
 
Disabling the touch pad does not solve the problem.

Acer Aspire R7 572 :: Touchscreen Mouse Pointer Randomly Jumps All Over The Screen

Oct 21, 2014

Recently started having a problem with the mouse pointer randomly jumping all over the screen. It's gotten so bad that I can't even use the computer at this time because the pointer won't stay in the same place long enough for me to type or select anything. I typically use the laptop in the screen forward configuration so I don't use the touch pad and nothing is touching it. I use the touchscreen about half the time and use an external USB mouse the rest of the time. It makes no difference which method I use or whether the external mouse is connected or not. as my fancy 4-month old laptop is essentially useless at this point.

Lenovo X220 / Helix Tablet :: Mouse Cursor Jumps Around Screen Randomly

Feb 6, 2012

I have an X220 convertable laptop but the mouse cursor is driving me mad.  It randomly jumps around the screen; clicks things and generally makes working really hard.  
 
At first i thought i might have a virus although i have Norton installed.  I have done virus scans with Norton and McAfee in both regular and safe modes. No problems found.I have diabled and installed drivers; changed mouse settings; reistalled USB drivers; tried a corded mouse and nomouse other than the touchpad.  Nothing works.Lenovo support say they think it is a hardware problem; they sent me a new keyboard.  i put the new keyboard in (really easy to do).  No difference.Lenovo want me to return my machine for evaluation but i use it every day..I make mony on my computer and cannot affort to lose it for the minimum 4 days max 10 days they want it for service.  If i cannot work for 4 days I might as well go and buy another computer and throw this one in the bin!

Dell :: CPU Temperature

Feb 23, 2008

My current CPU temp is around 61 degrees C with the CPU load @ 100%. I clean it petty often and I just recently (around 2 months ago) applied silver compound to the heatsink. Even though the fan is on, how come it will not go faster than "slow"? I can set it to high, but why doesn't it do it automatically? Is this normal for my 9300?

Dell :: XPS 1645 Random Shut Off

Jan 9, 2010

My Dell XPS 1645 [see sig for specs] will random shut off on me. I will be doing anything from watching a movie, listening to music, or just browsing and it will random shut off. They are like days apart but It shut off 3 times on my today :S.

These shut offs are not Temperature related as In BOTH Windows and Ubuntu it has shut off and I have been monitoring temperature in both, with log files so I can check the temperature @ shut off time.

I live in Jamaica and it would be kind of hard for me to just send it in to have it looked at. I'm hoping the next BIOS revision along with fresh installs of both OS's will do the trick.

Dell :: XPS M1530 Random Shutdowns

Jan 15, 2009

I fired up Call of Duty 4 for some online gaming whilst at the parentals house, all well and good.
Then after a few (maybe even one) minutes gaming, PING, and the laptop shuts off.

Strange I thought, as this has never happened to me before. The first things that ran through my mind were the graphics card had overheated and caused the system to automatically shut down. Although this has never happened to me personally before, I have heard of other people having this problem, and since I overclock, I reasoned this could well be the case.

Dell :: Windows 7 Random Freeze

May 27, 2010

I have a less than a week old Latitude E6510.

I had four freezes while watching flash videos. I thought the adobe software was bad, so did uninstall and fresh install.

Now I've experienced a couple of more random freezes:
1. system was idle
2. surfing the web on google chrome

I have windows 7 Ultimate x64 and it seems like many people out there with vista and windows 7 are experiencing the same problem. I personally used both and on my other machine with win7 Ultimate x64, haven't had any random freeze at all.

I also have 1333mhz ram, and I know my system only supports 1066. Then I found this thread:
Random Lockups, Intel Chipset

Diagnostics and Dell are telling me there's no problem with hardwares. So I'd like to give a shot at dropping the memory speed. How should I do this?

Anyone having random system lockups with windows 7 x64?

Dell :: Random (rare) BSODs

May 27, 2010

I got it back in September, but very rarely, and inconsistently. It's happened maybe 5 times since I've had it, so it's very hard to troubleshoot.

Anyway, I just got another one "Driver IRQL not less than or equal" which could be anything from what I've read. I've run a memory scan with the built in Dell Diagnostics.

Dell :: Temperature Information

Jul 2, 2009

Basically I've been messing around with the OCing of my CPU since I've finally got all my temperature issues sorted. Firstly, I notice that my CPU temps at times are erratic, jumping/falling up to 10C at a time. Is this normal?

Secondly, my CPU temps after a short gaming session were
CPU1: 66C/ CPU2: 80C
This seems a bit strange to me. Does anyone know why CPU2 might be so much warmer?

Thirdly, related to the above, is 80C @ 3.4GHz good, bad or average? If I was running at 80C for hours can I expect this to do any damage? I know the CPU can handle up to 105C, however that doesn't mean something below can't cause damage. Confirmation on this would be great :-)

Dell :: XPS M1530 Possible Temperature

Aug 10, 2009

I have had my XPS M1530 for about 13 months now, never had a problem with it so far, however I am getting a little worried about some of the temperatures over the past few days.

I have been playing Fallout 3 and Anno 1404 a fair amount for the past week or two everything seems good, however my temperatures seem to be getting a fair bit higher than they were a couple of months back (May-ish) when I last spent a good amount of time looking at temperatures.

For example I played Anno1404 for about 3 hours on Saturday followed by 4 hours of Fallout 3 and the CPUs got to the high 80s and the GPU touched 95C! THM_ (from HWMonitor) hit 100C!

Now obviously I'm a little worried, it was pretty warm when I was playing (25C), but the thing that baffles me the most is that this has only been happening over the past week or so, before then my CPU rarely broke 80C and the GPU 85C. There also seems to be a loudish 'click' from the HDD when I turn off the laptop when it has been on for a fair while, again, this has only happened over the past few days.

Dell :: M1530 Temperature

Apr 26, 2009

I do have a question about the CPU temperature. I'm using CPUID HArdware Monitor (under 32bit Vista)to monitor the temperature and I am pretty concerned about constantly working fan (even when the cpu temperature is under 50 C).

The threshold under which the system goes dead silent is 44-46 C. Is that normal?

Dell :: What Is AUX Temperature M1530

Mar 20, 2009

I`ve bought a M1530 in december, it was fine till february when the termal paste had become bad the temps were at about 50 C idle and 80 on load, I replaced it with MX2 Arcgic Cooling and went 8-10 C lower. But Everest and other software detect AUX Temp?

Idle 60- on load 100C and the temp from 100C drops down in a seconds to 60C when I switch from Counter-Strike to Desktop. My question is what is this AUX and should I be worried. It looks like a component with bad cooling.

Dell :: No Temperature Displayed

Feb 22, 2009

I'm in a bit of a jiffie, my 1330 had some problems with overheating so I formatted but it turned out it was a piece of dirt stuck in the fan, anyways problem solved.

I thought.

Now, I get the slowdowns again, albeit not that severe. Now, when I open hwmonitor it only shows my CPU, HDD and ACHP. The GPUs temp won't show up.

I installed ntune, nada, same thing. What could be the problem, is the temperature measuring thingy broken I'm kind of worried that my 8400m gs is dying on me since it was a pos to begin with but I really dont feel like sending in my laptop.

Dell :: XPS M1710 Temperature

Jul 23, 2009

This is probably the one hundred and second thread on this subject, but after searching for similar threads, I just couldn't get a straight answer.

The temperature of my Geforce Go 7950 GTX reaches almost 100 degress celsius (97 to be exactly, but I'm pretty sure if I let the stress-test run for a couple of more minutes it'll get that hot).

I don't have a problem with this, but since this is my second videocard (the first one died after three years, I guess due to overheating issues), I would like to know if I may expect this to happen again.

So, for all of the M1710 owners out here: what are your GPU temperatures after stressing it for, let's say 10 minutes, with Furmark (stresses your GPU really really hard)?

Please mention them in celsius, and with what program you read out the temps (some programs, like i8kfanGUI deducts 8 degrees of the real temperature).

Dell :: Poll: GPU Max Temperature

Nov 2, 2008

There was a poll for idle temps, but I am more interested in your values for max temp for the GPU.

Setting: 8 mins of running Rthdribl on a M1330; HWMonitor read-out for max. GPU temp in Celsius.

Mine would be 104C. After another 2mins the GPU clocked down, resulting in "only" 98C.

Dell :: New M1530 Random Shutdown Only On Battery

Feb 6, 2009

New British poster here, please be gentle ;] !

I'm glad I found some fellow XPS users, maybe you could give me some advice.

I got my new(ish) M1530 yesterday (refurb from Dell Outlet, saved me 200).
Initially I was very pleased, its a lovely machine, but I then found a problem - its the curse of the random shutdown!

I first noticed it when running 3dMark this morning to demo the XPS.

It happens fairly consistently after a few minutes; the machine doesnt feel hot.
I phoned Dell support (took 1.5 hours) and they/we found it shuts down in the diagnostics tests too.

Conclusion: Replace motherboard, engineer booked.

However I have discovered it only happens when its on battery power - everything is fine on AC power.

Dell :: Studio XPS 1340 Random Beeping

Aug 9, 2009

My Studio XPS 1340 runs just fine, it's not overheating or anything, but once in a while it randomly just beeps. I think it must be an internal buzzer, it sounds like it comes from the left hand side of the keyboard somewhere. It's not too big of a deal, but Id just like to know why it randomly does this.
