Dell :: What's Latitude On Flash?

Dec 3, 2009

Today I found on Dell's support page there's a new firmware and application with title "Latitude On Flash".

I have E4300 with Latitude On capable but I never used it at all.
So I thought this might be the thing that makes the Latitute On something usable.

But my installation process fails with message saying there's no flash device (module?) found on my laptop

Dell :: Latitude On ECM As Compared To Latitude On FLASH

May 27, 2010

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 E6500 :: BIOS Flash With No Battery

Jan 16, 2015

After killing my old battery, my Latitude E6500 is refusing to detect the new battery I bought for it. It will run off the battery if I disconnect the AC, but will not charge, I have been using a co-worker's E6500 to recharge it.

I have been instructed to run the E6500 Bios flash, however since the computer does not detect the battery, it will not allow me to proceed with the flash. /forceit does not work. Are there any other command line variables I can use to make the bios upgrade perform without a battery check?

Dell Latitude E6410 :: Laptop Will Not Flash BIOS

Dec 22, 2012

This one currently has A07, and I know it needs to flash A09 before bumping up to the current A13, but A09 stops right after launch (".....unexpectedly quit..."). Logged in with Admin rights, not seeing any reason for BIOS failure. Another download of the A09 was tried as well.

Dell Latitude D830 :: Screen Went Black / Num And Caps Flash And Scroll Is On Permanently

Feb 14, 2013

About a week ago, the (external) screen of my dell lattitude D830 went completely black. I hadn't got a clue wat to do, so I waited a while, and when nothing happened I turned off the computer. I've been googling for a while, and found something about POST-codes here [URL] ..... apparently the video-card doesn't work anymore (If I start the computer with FN+power, Num and Caps flash, and Scroll burns permanently). Lucky for me my Dell was old, and I had recently replaced it, but I still wanted to use my old computer for rendering etcera. Would this still be possible? I have the idea that the computer doesn't boot anymore (I can't see whether that's true, since there's no screen). Would it be possible to make it boot again, so that I can use my old Dell on a network?

Dell :: Bad Flash On Inspiron 6400

Jan 2, 2009

The thing is that my aunt started downloading updates and things from Dell (as she told me,

I wasn't there) and in one of those updates, there was the bios, she updated the system, and then it never came back to life...,

so I was wandering if there is a recovery method with a usb floppy drive (I have one),

since I've tried the Windows Key + F and Fn + F with no avail, is there other option, other than replacing the motherboard? (I live in Chile, and here all computer related things are very expensive... and I don't have credit card to order overseas )

Dell :: XPS M1730 BIOS Update / Flash

Feb 6, 2009

I have a Dell XPS M1730 with a BIOS revision of A03--the latest revision available on the Dell Drivers & Downloads page is A10.

My dilemma is that I am not sure if it is safe to skip the revisions A06 and A09 and just go straight for revision A10.

Also, is revision A10 any better than A09 or A06? Please, I really need somebody's advice on this matter.
Reasons for this BIOS update:

* Upgrading to two 250GB Momentus hard drives and run them under RAID 0.

* Planning on dual-booting Windows Vista 32-bit and Vista 64-bit (need help on this one as well, but let's just focus on the current matter) .....

Dell :: Geforce Go 7900GS Reads As 7900GT/GTO After Flash

Apr 11, 2008

just bought a new 7900gs for my lappy, e1705 and flashed it with the gtx bios so as to create the gsx.

however decided to change it back to the gs original bios but whenever i try to install drivers after flashing it, windows will always read my card as the 7900GT/GTO

It's kinda irritating because whenever i close the laptop lid, it wouldn't shut off and usually my temp readings are higher then normal - around 45-55.

Before when i used the original 7900gtx bios flash it would normally be around 37-45..

i tried to work around this problem by manually "having disk" when windows asks me to choose which driver to install and i chose the 7900gs however since they're like 5-6 7900GS GO drivers, i just choose randomly and it works to some degree; the monitor shuts off when i close it

yet i still have some display problems like the windows of each page moving slowly or very choppily when i move them..

anyone know anything i can do? to like.. revert back to my original bios settings? i did save the original bios but it just doesn't work, windows always sees my card as a 7900GT/GTO

Dell :: 7900gs Flash Worked But Clocks Still Resetting

Feb 5, 2008

I did the nvflash 79XXXXX.rom command and it asked me if I wanted to accept, I pressed "y" for yes, and it said it was successful.

So I load up windows and install coolbits and atitool, I got a steady clock at 640/1250, obviously I didnt want to keep it that high, but I benched with it and it did great, +2000 points on my 3dmark05 score. 8500!

I then changed the clocks to 450/1100 which is where I was going to keep it for everyday use, I clicked apply and went back in to verify and they were still there.

I reset my laptop and came back online the clocks were set to default.

What did I do wrong? on the newer nvidia control console it doesnt have the "apply settings upon startup" option.

i am using the 169.04 drivers so these drivers are correct(I read the newer ones do not allow the overclocking).

Dell Vostro 1450 :: How To Force BIOS Re-flash

Jan 22, 2013

I have an Vostro 1450, already at the latest available BIOS (A08).  I have a problem which might be fixed by re-flashing the BIOS.  However the BIOS upgrade utility (V1450A08.EXE)  detects that I'm already at the latest version and sensibly refuses to "update".  Is there a way I can force the upgrade utility to re-flash the BIOS?

Dell XPS L7 L702X :: Screen Flicker / Bright Flash

May 1, 2013

What is happening with the laptop, sometimes I noticed my laptop screen will flicker(or a bright flash as if someone was taking a picture). When I go to the event viewer it tells me Desktop windows service manager has been disabled by the windows system assessment tool. I'I have the nvidia graphics card + Intel(using optimus technology),running windows 7 professional 64 bit.

I forgot to mention when playing videos I think the graphic card makes a strange noise like there isn't enough power or something (Not 100% sure)

I have nvidia gt555 with intel Optimus 
Intel 2670m
8GB of RAM
Windows 7 professional

I tried to do a fresh install of windows 7 but the problem still persists and I cannot test it since I have deleted the recovery Drive. How do I test if the graphics card is working properly

Dell XPS 17 :: Lights Flash As Normal But Screen Does Not Switch On At All

Apr 4, 2013

I currently have a dell xps 17 laptop. It will not switch on properly.

When I power it on, the lights flash on as normal, and some of the fans appear to start (although the side fan does not appear to work). The cd drive will open when I press the button, and the touch buttons light up on contact as normal.

However, the screen does not switch on at all. The laptop will stay on but nothing will happen. The side fan does not appear to be working either (i cant hear it, and that area gets VERY hot when plugged in).

I am currently on holiday and do not have an hdmi cable to test it on an external display (though I could maybe buy one).

I have tried fully charging and depleting the battery, I have tried removing and reinserting the coin cell battery and the memory.

I want to flash my card with an older GTX bios I used to have. But some months ago I installed the unlocked roms...

Dell Studio PP39L :: Won't Turn On - Screen Will Flash White For A Second

Dec 6, 2011

I have a Dell Studio Laptop, Model PP39LThe laptop has a fully charged battery and is plugged in. The Led on the battery plug (going into the computer) lights blue.When I press the power button the screen will flash white for a second and then nothing (no beeps either). The little white led on the computer by the power jack will light up white for a second and then turn off as well.This has happened in the past but it just worked after leaving it alone for a few hours. 

I haven't turned the laptop off since this incident. I've been putting it in stand by/ sleep mode and everything was fine.  I was also able to restart the computer with no problems. It's just when I power down when this happens.The keyboard recently froze (new issue) and I had no choice but to reboot by powering down.  Now it won't turn on. I have never spilled anything on the laptop. Nor have I dropped it or caused any other damage to it. I'm thinking it might be a problem with the motherboard.

Sony :: Using Compact Flash (CF) As An SSD

May 23, 2010

On a Vaio TX I installed a "64GB Transcend Extreme Speed 400x Ultra DMA" compact flash (CF). And just for fun I threw Windows 7 at it as well.

Here are the results.

CrystalDiskMarks score

Needless to say given, the wretched scores for 4K writes: Lots of hesitation.

Windows experience scores on the 1.3GHz single core were
Processor: 2.5
RAM: 4.1
Graphics/Gaming: 1.0
Hard drive: 1.9 - 5.5 (varied quite a bit over several trials)

Dell :: Inspiron 6400 On External Monitor, Regions Of Image Flash

May 11, 2010

I have been using an external LCD monitor hooked to my inspiron 6400 for 6 months, everything is fine. but 2 days ago when I moved the laptop a little far away from its old place,

I tried to add a 6-feet VGA extension cable to the present VGA cable of the external monitor . the image with extension cable is horrible, so I take the extension cable off and move the laptop back to the old place. and a problem showed up:

when I hook my inspiron 6400 to the external LCD monitor via VGA port on the laptop, some regions of the image on the external monitor flash (if I put on a document, the words are shaking, or "dancing"),

for example the upper right corner, and the middle section of the screen are doing this right now. and if I take the VGA cable off and put it back on, the flashing region changes. but one thing for sure: Not all the screen flash, only several regions.

Dell :: Studio XPS 1640 1645 Serial Flash CMOS PINS

Apr 4, 2010

Dell Studio XPS 1640 1645 Serial Flash CMOS PINS

The process to be used appears credibly outlined at the following web address:

But the laptop used in the above web site is not that of a Dell Studio XPS 1640 or 1645. So parts location, disassembly and reassembly are unique with the 1640 & 1645.

I have had the 'privilege' to be stonewalled by Dell 'customer service' when requesting the lost password to access CMOS & BIOS setup on my Dell Studio XPS 1640.

I purchased a used Studio XPS 1640 that was just under 2 months out of warranty from another who was disgusted with the hassles that have developed with some of the 1640s & 1645s over heat, throttling, RGB screen blinking, inadequate power supply, etc, etc. The formal transfer of ownership was immediately completed on Dell's web-site .....
