Dell :: What Is This Extrange Usb Port On My Studio 17 Notebook

May 22, 2009

I have 5 usb ports on my dell studio 17 notebook, but one of them has a extrange connector, apparently is a self-powered usb port or something like that, but I can't connect a regular usb cable on it.

Can anybody tell me what kind of device could be connected to this port ? And What's the difference between this usb port vs regular usb ports ?

HP G60-100 :: Locate Enhanced USB Port On Notebook

Oct 3, 2014

Where to find the fast USB port on my laptop. In the device manager on my HP HP G60-100 Notebook PC series, it confirms that I have an enhanced USB port. Which of the three ports is the fast USB port?  I have to back up a lot of information from my phone & it is taking too much time. Difficult to test each port as I'm in the middle of a long transfer. It is not shown in the product manual, the ports are only listed as USB ports.

Dell :: Studio 1737 VGA Port

Apr 10, 2009

I just purchased a Dell Studio 1737, my first notebook ever. Here are the specs:

Intel Core Duo T6400, 2.0 GHz, 800 MHz, 2M L2 Cache
4GB DDR2 800MHz 2 Dimm
320G 5400RPM SATA Hard Drive
Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 4500MHD
Integrated High Definition Audio 2.0

(All for $830 with taxes and S&H. Good deal?)

I'm pretty happy with it so far, but I was wondering about the VGA output on the left side of the model. Supposedly it's only for output, but it's a female connection and I was wondering if I could make it work as a VGA input. (My desire is to play some Xbox 360 on it.) I'm using the Vista 64bit OS. Is it possible with this integrated card, or would I have to go out and try to upgrade it? Is it possible to upgrade the video card on the Studio non-xps .....

Dell :: Studio XPS 16 Owners: Is Your Notebook Really Portable?

May 18, 2009

I currently have a Sony Vaio Z540 -- 13.3" non-glossy display at 1366x768 and a weight of around 3.4 lbs.

Easily carried, that thing.

I, however, wouldn't mind a 15.4" / 16" notebook. For those of you with XPS 16 machines: is your laptop really that portable? The thing weighs 6.4 lbs with the standard battery, from what I understand. Think universities and the usual study places as well as at home.

Thinking about getting one to go with my m4500 which is on order. Reviews seem ok though some complain it's bulky and other complained the release mechanism wasn't great. Worst was that someone said their comp wouldn't boot when docked.

Can anyone share experience and/or high res pics of what one looks like?

Dell :: [E6500][esata][RAID Port Multiplier] Raid 1 Enclosure Not Regnosized Using The Esata Port

Mar 5, 2009

Here's my story and, let's say, my analysis:

I bought a generic 2 HD sata2 RAID1 enclosure based on the chipset Silicon Image SteelVine 5744. It can be used in USB or eSATA2. This embedded chipset (named SiL5744) is known (understand "claimed") to auto-handle Sata I/II and host sata2 controllers that not support the port multiplier feature. The HD are two Samsung F1 1To. There's no jumper to rollback to SATA 1.5Go on them, you can only do it by flashing the HD's bios, however we don't need to do it as I wrote just before, the SiL5744 supports SATA 3Go natively.

The enclosure works pretty well with USB, but *not* in eSATA : the E6500 freezes/hangs just after the POST step (a potential driver issue with the installed vista 64bits is not the reason then). As soon has I disconnect the eSATA cable, the system recovers and continues as normal.

What I've tried/done so far :

Both E6500's BIOS SATA mode AHCI and IRRT mode were tested,
Intel Matrix driver and software was updated to the latest version (AHCI and IRRT),
The SiL5744 chip was upgraded to its latest firmware as well (in case of...)

In order to verify the esata cable, the HDs and the enclosure itself, I succeed to :

- Use the enclosure's RAID1 feature when using the USB connection, I could partition,format, and read/write on the logical volume
- directly connect *one* HD (Samsung F1 1To) to the E6500's esata port -(I have a sata2esata cable), Vista installed it and I was able to use it as normal, even the hotswap feature seemed to work fine (I unkindly removed it). I could so test both HD individually this way... On the enclosure hardware side, everything looks fine then.

An IMPORTANT thing : The E6500's ICH8/9-M sata host controller seems to support the Port Multiplier feature *ONLY* on sata port 0 -as a bubble message from the Intel Matrix soft sometimes shows up-, but this is exactly where the internal HD is plugged on the motherboard I found nowhere you can change the internal sata port ID (switch,bios,ect...). I think this is the key of the problem that seems to be a dumb port conflict, because the esata port is in fact the port sata 4 (the DVDRW drive is sata 1, dock's esata is 5 for instance). If somebody knows how to swap the sata port ID, I think I won't be toasted !

Dell :: Loose USB Port

Sep 15, 2009

I have a Dell Studio 15 laptop and one of the USB ports on the right side of my laptop has become loose (I think it happened when I knocked it on something). Whenever I put a USB into the port I can wriggle it side to side & I can't do this with my other ports & until recently I couldn't do it with this one either.

When I put a USB into the port it isn't detected but if I push down on the casing above the port it sometimes is detected but the second I stop pushing down it's undetected again.

Dell :: E-Port DVI Quality?

May 12, 2010

Does anyone have experience with using the DVI connector on the Dell E-Port or E-Port Plus? I got an E-Port Plus from eBay listed as "new" and have it hooked up using the DVI connection with my new E6410 driving it (with NVidia 3100M graphics).

Black text on white background has a bit of a red glow to it that didn't happen with my older laptop/dock combo. I'm trying to figure out if it is a bad E-Port or if this is just the way the E-Port/E6410/3100M will be

Dell :: E6400 E-Port DVI

May 8, 2010

I've just received a work Dimension E6400 with E-Port Replicator. I have two Dell 2001FP (max res 1600x1200) monitors that I have connected to the VGA port and the DVI port on the E-Port Replicator.

On the VGA connected monitor, I get 1600x1200 resolution. On the DVI-connected one, I can NOT get 1600x1200 (even with 16-bit color on one or both monitors). On DVI, I can only get max 1280x1024 or 1440x900.

I have tried all kinds of combinations but I can't get 1600x1200 out of the DVI. My E6400 has all the latest specs (I've checked) such as the latest BIOS, latest chipset (incl. graphics).

1. Is the E6400 capable of driving two 1600x1200 displays?

2. If I get a DVI to VGA converter and connect to VGA ports on both monitors, will I be able to get 1600x1200 on both?

3. If I buy a E-Port Plus Replicator and connect both monitors to the two VGA ports on that, will that give me 1600x1200 on both?

4. My old Dell monitors don't have DisplayPort connections (just DVI and VGA). Is there some way that I can connect the DisplayPort, on the E-Port, to a VGA monitor?

Having a problem with one of the USB ports on my XPS14z  .. Port is the one adjacent to the HDMI port..

There is absolutely no signs of life from it at all, regardless of whether I connect USB 2 or 3 devices, usb drives etc.   I've tried updating BIOS and CHIPSETS to absolutely no success.

and also checked device drivers are installed as per

but again no success.  It cannot be seen in device manager or when I ran a diagnostics suggesting the whole thing is dead.

Dell :: E6400 + E-Port Plus + Samsung LCD + LCD

Oct 8, 2008

just got my new E6400 and I am having a problem with dual external displays. My displays are:

Samsung 204B (20", 1600x1200)
Dell 1708FP (17", 1280x1024)

The problem is the samsung only works using an analog VGA cable. If I even plug in the DVI cable, the samsung will not detect any output from the laptop/dock. I have tried installing the samsing display drivers, but that did not fix the issue. This was not a problem on my old thinkpad T41 that this new dell replaced, so although possible, I doubt the monitor has suddenly developed a bad DVI port.

If I use the Dell as the primary with the samsung hooked up using both cables, I can see two instances of the samsung, it just won't display anything until I pull the DVI cable.

My E6400 has the NVidia NVS 160 card. Running Vista 64 with the 64-bit NVidia drivers from Dell.

Dell :: Port Replicator For E6500

I just purchased an E-6500 and am considering buying a port replicator that i can use to hook up my external hard drive, monitor, keyboard, mouse, and printer.

I am looking for the cheapest replicator that takes up the least amount of space since space is limited right now. I have a few questions:

1) I can't figure out from Dell's website which port replicator meets my needs. Can anyone point me to the right model that is the best bang for my buck,

meeting basic needs mentioned above (a generic option is fine too--doesn't have to be Dell as long as it works)
