Dell :: Latitude E4300 + E-Flat Panel Stand With 19 Inch UltraSharp 1908FPW Wide Monitor

Apr 6, 2009

I'm looking for a computer set up. After some research, I'm leaning towards a Latitude E4300 (with decent specs) and the above mentioned display. The idea is to have a powerful, yet portable notebook for taking to class and mobile study sessions, then having the display function as almost a desktop computer. Has anyone had a similar set up before?

Dell :: Studio 1535 Won't Save My Power

Apr 2, 2009

This is an issue that's only been going on for a couple of days, as far as I can tell.

Lately, whenever I boot up my Studio 1535 into Vista, it starts off in Power Save mode by default.

Ever since I got this thing and reinstalled Windows, I've had it use High Performance mode by default, and just edited the profile power settings to those of Power Saver when it's on battery.

Once Windows starts, I can go into power options and set it to run High Performance mode again, but it's annoying having to do that at every boot now. It just doesn't save my setting anymore

Acer :: 6935a-when The Battery Is Used (power Save Scheme Is On)

Sep 8, 2009

I have Acer 6935 (P8400, GF9600 512 DDR3, 4 GB RAM DDR3) and use Vista 64 bit.
Today I have noticed a strange behavior of my laptop when the battery is used (power save scheme is on).

On the beginning, the battery is fully charged. I start listening music or watching a movie, it does not matter. It takes about 1 hour, for example.

The battery is about 50-60% full (1h 30 min left) and suddenly the laptop goes to standby. When I turn it on, turns out that only 9% of the battery left. The wireless and the Bluetooth are off. I use Vista 64 bit.

The laptop is only 6 months and the battery has not been hard used.

Dell :: Ultrasharp Screen Brightness?

Nov 23, 2009

I have a Dell Ultrasharp 1707FP. It is connected via DVI. I was looking at the on screen options, and i can only adjust the brightness.

My whites looked kinda yellow, and the whole screen did not really look that bright. but it still looked good, as i was very happy with it.

So i adjusted the brightness from 75 to 90, and it looks alot better, as now the whites are white and colors are also bright yet the dark colors are still dark.

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 :: M1530 Battery Level From 1 Hr -> 0:07 Instantly

Jul 28, 2009

recently I started having battery issues on my m1530. I have the 9 cell, and it always worked fine and gave me 3-4 hours of time. Now, though, it displays 3 hours, then drops slowly and accurately with time, until it gets to about 1 hr. At the 1 hr mark or so, it will instantly fall to 5% remaining (about 7 mins) and then turn off after that 7 minutes.

Also, I have been having issues with the charging as well, where it will get to "plugged in, not charging" and just sit at a certain %charge. I am away from home at a temp housing this month, so I don't know if it is just the outlets here, but sometimes it will charge all the way up and others it will just give me power and no charge.

Dell :: Extending Laptop Longevity Power Down Or Standby Mode

Oct 3, 2008

My new XPS laptop is just a few days old and I'd like not to kill it prematurely. What is current consensus on best practice to extend useful life? Shut it down after session completed (i.e., in AM when leaving for work) or leave in standby "sleep" mode? I leave my employers Dell Latitude computer powered up in a docking station during the week but power it down for the weekend. With current electronic semiconductor technology, is there a negative aspect on longevity (inrush current, for example) by daily shutting down and powering up?

Dell Inspiron N5110 :: Sleep / Hibernation Power Mode

Feb 24, 2013

I've had my Dell Insprion N5110 for about a year now with little issue, but lately this really annoying problem has arose. Every time I just close my laptop (to put it in sleep mode, essentially) and then open it back up... it wont turn on. The power bottom stays completely lit up (not blinking, like it would in sleep/hibernation mode) but no matter what I press, it wont turn on. I end up having to completely shut it down every time. i did update for BOIS  and  VGA nothing happen

Dell :: How Glossy Is The Ultrasharp 1440x900 LED Screen On The E6500/6400

Apr 25, 2009

I'm considering buying a Dell e6400 or Dell e6500. I'd prefer the I'd prefer a 15.4' screen. However, if I get that I feel like I probably should get a higher res than the basic 1280 x 800. Ideally I want 1440 x 900.

The problem is Dell only seems to offer the higher resolution in a glossy screen on either model (at least in Canada) - "UltraSharpô Wide WXGA+ (1440x900) LED Display-Brushed Metal Black". I spoke to Dell and they said it's something in b/w an anti-glare screen and a consumer glossy screen, but I'm not sure what to make of that.

I'm wondering if anyone has this type of screen and can tell me what their experience has been? How glossy is it?

I mainly will use my laptop for writing and office work - in coffee shops, offices or the library - so I don't like have a screen that is reflective. I much prefer an anti-glare screen. I've thought about just buying the e6400 with the anti-glare 1280x800 LED screen, but like I say, would prefer to get a bigger screen if possible, so wanted to see how glossy these screens really are.

Dell :: 15.4" UltraSharpô Widescreen WUXGA (1920x1200) LCD For Latitude E6500

Oct 28, 2008

Anyone with this WUXGA (1920x1200) LCD, do you notice darker spots on the bottom left and right corners of the screen? Specifically over the Start button and the clock. Make sure there is a lighter screen in the background to notice it more distinctly. This is my second Samsung screen with this issue. Does LG make a WUXGA LCD?

Also, have any of you had the rubber bumpers for the LCD on the palm rest come off. My left one came off and will not stay on. What happens is you tend to run your hand over it while typing, causing it to snap off. In order to get a new rubber piece, DELL needed to send me a whole new palm rest with speakers and fingerprint reader included to install.

So far I like this Notebook, however it should have went through more tests (drivers especially) before releasing it to the public.

HP/Compaq :: Dv3t Sometimes Overheating And Powering Off Instantly

Feb 27, 2010

I've had my HP dv3t since mid June 2009 and had no real problems with overheating until recently. I've noticed that the fans have been kicking in when watching videos and sometimes to the extent that it shuts off my computer instantly. I'm not sure why watching videos overheats my system. Maybe it's the specs?

Acer :: Aspire 4720- USB Power Stays On In Sleep Mode

Mar 14, 2009

My Acer Aspire 4720 has an annoying CPU fan "on/off/on/off" behaviour that is impossible to control via software, so I wired it up with a resistor internally, soldering to a USB +5V header. The fan itself works great, but ...

The USB power (and thus the fan) stays on when I put the laptop into "sleep" mode. In Hibernation, it turns off as normal.

How can I make the USB power turn off when in normal "sleep" mode?

Acer Aspire 5742g :: Overheating When Playing Games - Instantly Shuts Down

Feb 3, 2015

I have some problems with my 3 and an half year old laptop. When I play games on it, it get so warm that it instantly shuts down. Normally it's around 100 degrees but it sometimes goes up to 103 - 104. I also have an extra cooler, 200 x 200 x 20mm, 850 RPM which doesn't seem to work that much.  My computer usually turns off 2 -3 times a day and that is really annoying and I don't want to damage my computer.....

Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga S Series :: Power Button Is Not Responding In Sleep Mode

Jan 27, 2014

sometime in sleep mode my Yoga fall into irresponsive mode without any possibility to do anything. The power button is simply not working - pushing it for more than 30 second not change anything... Yoga red light is slowly blinking, the fn key is lighting, the fan is working, processor is heating and this follows to full drain battery.

Is any possibility to reset or reboot this "thermal brick" Yoga mode? Some computers and tablet have the hard reset button to work with such a situation - have Thinkpad Yoga similar solution (i.e. button combination invoking reset)?

Lenovo X Series ThinkPad :: X230 Not Wake Up After Sleep Mode / Power Button Blink With No Response

Sep 5, 2012

I just got my x230 yesterday and I'm having some weird issues. 

(1) whenever my laptop goes to sleep mode. I can't seem to make it wake up. The power button would just slowly blink and would not respond to anything. I would have to hard reset my laptop for it to turn on. When I turn it back on, it would go the "Start windows normally" screen.

(2) whenever I close the lid, I'm guessing it tries to go to sleep mode, then if I wake it up, the system seem to reboot and would go to the "start windows normally" screen.

Both seems to all relates to sleep mode.

Lenovo ThinkPad W Series :: W540 - Toggling WiFi Power On Mains Shifts To Airplane Mode

Feb 24, 2014

Each time I try to turn off the WiFi when connected to the mains, the unit goes into airplane mode.

1] Any work around so the WiFi is turned off IMMEDIATELY and still remain with the W540 connected to the power supply (mains)??

There has to be a way to quickly turn off the WiFi without going into battery mode.

2] Similarly, is there a way to turn off the WiFi during boot up or before the system is fully booted.

I checked the power setting Lenovo software, but I find it very convoluted for such a simple workstation task.

As an answer to the original post:  On long d/l's with slow lines, I have not found anyway to turn off the screen deliberately. Closing the lid does turn off the screen, but the screen turns on when the lid is opened.  Having the screen on in an hotel room is a nuisance, similarly when leaving the system on while away, and the cleaning people see the unit is turned on.  I gave up, and do not travel with the W540, as I have yet to find a workaround. I do manage with my other brand workstation.

Lenovo X230 Series ThinkPad :: Battery Drains Quickly In Sleep Mode / Power Management Center Won't Run

Apr 15, 2009

I have my lenovo x230 laptop set to sleep when I close the lid. When I close the lid the "sleep" icon on the back of the screen lights up. But the batter will not last through the night on sleep mode. Within five hours or so, the battery is completely drained and I have to plug in and boot up the system. I've never seen such poor batter performance during sleep mode on any other laptop I've ever owned. 
 
Another thread in this forum blames the USB port that allows you to charge mobile phones/etc. during low-power states and recommends disabling the "always power on" option fo this USB port in the Bios settings. At least my laptop still will not make it through the night in sleep mode. 
 
At this point, it seems my ownly option is to use sleep mode only when the laptop is plugged in and hibernation mode when on batter power, which is disappointing. I've never had to worry about this in the past with other laptops. Perhaps/probably related is the fact that the lenovo ThinkVantage Power Manager (v. 7.16) hangs at the splash screen when I try to open it, so I've been trying to manage the power through the windows control panel power settings.

Dell :: Save Battery Life

Dec 31, 2008

i like having my m1530 on my lap (unplugged) in the living room while i watch tv/babysit so far i can only make it last 2 hours at the most(surfing the web,messengers) with the brightness 30% and powersaver mode.

well i was reading on the thread on how to underclock your cpu...theres a problem with that:

-numero first im too lazy (hurts my head when i try to understand the thread,hence the "[ADVANCE]" on the title ^^")

-numero dos having a t5450 on power saver mode (50% max perfomance) is slow enough... so i tried to look for a better solution and found this...

[url]

i think its great...my battery up to 2 hours and 20-ish minutes.

i think vista users should give it a try

Dell :: Save Time When Reinstalling Windows

Apr 14, 2008

i was always looking for a good solution to create an ISO of your hard drive.
this way, after a clean xp & drivers istall, you can save this image to a usb-hdd/usb-stick/CDs/DVDs/etc. and everytime your system needs to be reinstalled (virus, slowdowns, registry messed up, ...) you can save yourself the endless installation/sp2 download/driver search and simply play back the clean windows in about 1 hour.

there is commercial software like trueimage, which does that. and norton ghost, which i hate, as i hate symantec software and this tool is not really good.

and there is a freeware tool, which is named "driveimage xml".
very simple to use and it works great:

[url]

you simply click "back up", choose the path to the destination you want and wait
a few minutes.

when pushing big files and not choosing the option "split large files", remember, that
your destination harddisk has to be formated with ntfs, as you can't push files bigger
than 4 GB to fat32 formated drives at once.

the only thing you have to do is create a boot cd with an operating system on it,
so you can restore your image to the system hdd.

i used the freeware bart pe to do this:

[url]

you only have to transform your xp cd with it to become an operating system
cd. and insert the plugin for driveimage xml (available on the runtime.org homepage), so you can run driveimage xml when booting from cd.

Dell Inspiron 14R :: While In Sleep Mode Goes Into Hibernation / Off Mode In About 2-3 Hours

Feb 14, 2013

I have a Inspiron 14R for about a year and half now.  This computer has done this since day one for some reason:

When I put the 14R in SLEEP mode, the computer remains in sleep mode for about 2-3 hours, then the computer shuts itself off, or goes into hibernation mode on it's own.  The computer has Windows 7 Premiuim.

I have the power saving modes all set too SLEEP, and none in hibernation in any of the selections.  I cannot for the life of me why this computer does this.  I have a Lenovo I bought about a year later using Windows 7 Premium with all the same settings in the POWER section, and while in sleep mode, it STAYS in SLEEP mode, no matter the length of time in that mode. Any setting I need to turn off, and where to find it?
