Dell :: Windows 7 Pro X64 On Precision M2300?

Dec 8, 2009

Dell Precision M4500 :: EPort Plus Hot Undocking On Windows 7

Oct 28, 2010

I am using a Precision m4500 and a ePort Plus replicator on windows 7even 64bits.

On my previous one (m6300), the "eject computer" option was available on windows but I don't find it on my current machine.

Does it mean that I have to shutdown the pc to undock it or is it safe to make a hot undock just by manually removing the laptop from the replicator ?

Dell Precision M4600 :: Windows 8 Installation On System?

Feb 25, 2013

Any documentation or instructions that I can follow to successfully install Windows 8 onto a Precision M4600 as if Dell had done a factory install?

Here are the problems I've faced with the installation I've tried to do myself:

Fan comes on high speed when screen is locked and gone blank.

Dell have not provided drivers for everything under Windows 8, which means I've got to figure out (a) which drivers I need to get from Windows 7 and (b) what order to install them in.

Dell Precision M3800 :: Windows 8.1 - Disable Touchpad Click

Sep 25, 2014

I'm on windows 8.1.

How do I disable clicking on the touch pad? So that when I just tap it without depressing the button it  doesn't click.

I often end up accidentally clicking things while moving my finger around on the pad to go to another part of the screen.

Dell Precision M4700 :: Running Windows 8 Cannot Connect To Secure Networks

Mar 1, 2013

I purchased a Dell Precision M4700 pre-installed with Windows 8 just before Christmas. Over all I am happy with it. My biggest regret was getting Windows 8.

The issue that is really starting to frustrate me is the inability to access the internet through certain secure WiFi access points. For example, I am sitting in a Marriott hotel using the Wifi network in their conference facility. Yesterday I could connect, today I cannot get to the login page. After several attempts to force a fresh connect by connecting to another network I have given up and am now tethered via my phone. A Windows 7 laptop and iPad connect without any problems.

At two companies that had a secure guest network I was unable to login at all.

As far as I can tell from the Dell web site the drivers for the Wifi card (Dell 1540) are all upto date (version 6.30.59.26).

Dell Precision M4700 :: Windows 7 64bit - Lock Status Indicators

Apr 27, 2013

I am running Windows 7 64-bit on my laptop.  When I originally got it from Dell, with all the software installed, it had a feature that would show "Caps Lock On" and so on when I turned on caps lock, or scroll lock.

I re-installed Windows since I upgraded the hard drive and want to know how to get this feature back.  I installed the Dell Feature Enablement Pack, which gives me the "hotkey" menu, but no lock status options.

What's the software that shows this on screen?

Dell Precision M6600 :: Bluetooth Mouse Isn't Working Running Windows 7

Nov 26, 2012

I have an M6600 running Windows 7.

The BT Moust is a Dell Travel Mouse F299K.  When I add it through the normal bluetooth menu, it seems to add correctly, but the blue light on the mouse keeps blinking.

I updated the BIOS to A12- that got it working for about 15 minutes.  Then it quit and I'm back to where I started.  I tried the mouse on two other machines and it works fine.  Even on a Macbook Pro.

Dell :: Precision M90 And Precision M 6300 WHO IS THE ODM?

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 :: Precision M6400delays?

Nov 15, 2008

has anyone ordered and received a 17" Precision M6400 or M6400 Covet? Can anyone post when they ordered and received?

I just gave up on a month-and-a-half old order, and am trying to gauge whether I can actually expect the new one I placed to arrive. The sales rep, of course, will tell you "Oh Dec. 2nd is the worst case scenario, it should arrive before then!"

Ordered 9/26. Gave up and cancelled order 11/5.

Ordered again 11/5. Expected delivery: 12/2. (But will it make it)?

Oh and if you ordered a Covet, can you say whether it was glossy or matte screen? There seems to be great confusion on this! .......

Dell :: Latitude Vs. Precision ..

Jan 21, 2009

general differences b/w the two Dell business models? I'm looking to buy a 15" notebook, and I think the business computers may be better than the consumer ones. However, I'm having trouble understanding the different models' differences b/w each other on Dell's website.

Dell :: Vostro Vs Precision

Apr 27, 2010

I'm looking to upgrade my cheap consumer-grade laptop with something more robust. My uses are mostly software development as well as photography (Photoshop, etc.). I'm not interested in using this new machine for gaming (that would be a very secondary use).

I'm looking for a 17" laptop, so am considering both the Vostro 3700 and Precision M6500. I understand the system differences between these two machines, as well as the cost differences. Ideally, I'd like whatever I buy to last 3+ years without falling too far behind in technology, but on the other hand the Precision is very expensive (budgets suck).

Thus, would the new Vostro 3700, maxed out on configuration, be a worthwhile investment or, since I'm going to spend the money, should I go the extra mile and get the Precision? What would I miss (other than the graphics card mostly) if I go Vostro?

I've been agonizing over this for a good month or so and realize making a decision like this in a vacuum isn't going to happen, so let me know your thoughts.

Dell :: Second HDD For Latitude/Precision

Sep 20, 2008

Based on this post[url] it would appear the Media bay only allows for 1.8" hard disks!

Is this true? Can anyone confirm this is true for both models?

2xHDD is a must for me - running VMs on a single disk is a _real_ drag!

Dell :: Upgrading To 4GB RAM On A M65 Precision

Sep 9, 2009

So I bought a M65 precision a few years ago (3-4)

Now that a good windows OS 64bit is available, I decided to to upgrade my ram from 2gb to the maximum 4gb.

After seeing that my computer recognizes 4GB but is only using 3GB I got pissed off.

After some research I found this link:
[url]

"So you pay a really huge premium (compared with 2Gb RAM) to get 4Gb of RAM ... and so how much memory do you expect the BIOS to make available to the OS. For a Dell M65 the answer is just 3.071Gb.

Response from Dell ...

The processor only has 32 address lines, limiting it to an addressing map of 4 gigabytes.

The chipset, PCI devices, PCI express region, and video cards use some of this map, and the BIOS correctly reports this range as unavailable to the operating system. If the user installs 4 GB of physical memory, then the processor has no way to address the memory that overlaps with these regions, already in use. The chipset directs memory access to the appropriate device rather than sending it to random access memory (RAM).

On Dell's new line of desktops, PCI express uses 500 megabytes (MB) in the map; integrated video takes 256 MB right below PCI express, leaving 3.25 GB of memory available to the operating system via RAM. In some cases, less RAM is available depending on what other add-in cards are installed.

Dell :: XPS 16 Vs Precision M4400

Apr 28, 2009

(note: I posted this in the XPS/Studio section, and I'm reposting it here since it pertains to both)

I am looking for a notebook for my girlfriend. She studies architecture, so she needs something with a powerful GPU, high resolution display, but not too heavy (she has to lug it with her every day all over campus). We don't want to spend more than ~$1500, and hopefully get it for less than that with discounts (either through the University or her mother's job) .....

Dell :: Precision M90 Exchange

Oct 29, 2007

so after complaining to dell many times about terrible heats and non expected shutdowns due to heat they have arranged a replacement for my system, one in the sig.

They called me on friday saying they where going to book an M6300 with the LOWER 1600M, so I opposed as i didnt payed the premium of having the 2500m just for nothing. So now they are looking at 3 main options.

Money Back

Exchange for XPS M1730

Gime me a 1600M and then upgrade it to 2600M.

IMO money back is the best option, eventhough the XPS M1730 base is just a bit more expensive, like 300 eur = 430$, i can make sure that i get it with the stuff i want, I dont really trust them on exchanging it to the base XPS and im sure they will lower stuff like 120gb hd, t7300 , CDRW-DVD etc, Im completelly opposed to a 1600m and exchange for 2600m as Im not even sure if it will ever be released.

What should I expect from them? I have really no clue on that, i have the maximum warranty you can have on the computer that is NBD Multi Care, so from what i can read in the specs of the warranty a replacement cannot be lower of performance in anycase than its predecessor.

If they were to upgrade me to the xps with shity stuff, by that i mean parts that are not available in the web but they can order in an specific situation like mine, should I really complain, Im reading posts of an upcoming 8800GTX for laptops, should i just ask for my money and wait for it to be released? Are they gonna put it in SLI ?

Dell Precision M65 :: Will Not Power On

Mar 5, 2013

Recently, I got a used Dell Precision M65 (Christmas of 2012 to be exact).When I first got it It worked great, Then a started realizing that a few issues.These issues included flickering when 100% of the CPU is being used, Blue Screen Of Death when running multiple applications at once, Mouse lagging (Blue screen was the frequent of the issues).on March 3rd ,I was laying on the couch playing games on the system when I turned my head briefly to talk to someone, When I turned my head back towards my laptop the screen was black and the laptop was off. Assuming the battery had died, I plugged it to the charger, pressed the power button, and nothing happened.I got up to assure that is was firmly connected to the wall outlet, And it was.So my laptop has shut-off and will not power on at all.It's acting as if it's not receiving power at all.The green light on the Dell charger is green until plugged into the laptop. It goes out immediately.The battery is fully charged for the battery indicator shows so.What's going on?Is my CPU bad?

Dell :: Precision M6400 Dock

Mar 15, 2009

We currently have many Latitude D830s with the D/Dock stations on lease. When the lease runs out on these, I'd like to get some M6400s.

Are there any similar docking stations available? We currently drive 3 external LCD monitors plus use the lid on each, but 1900x1200 on a 15.4" screen is starting to affect my eyes as I feel the effects of age.

The only docks I've found so far are the port replicators and it looks like you can't use the lid with two monitors. We'd be willing to sacrifice one monitor, but not two. We also don't want to switch to desktops due to frequent travel?
