Dell XPS 13 9333 :: Keyboard Lag When AC Adapter Not Plugged In

Oct 26, 2014

I'm on my second XPS13 (9333) because of a keyboard latency (lag) issue.  I've found that if the AC adapter is plugged in there is no lag.  When the AC adapter is NOT plugged then the problem occures.

The keyboard has no problems in Safe Mode.  Dell sent a USB to reload the OS but that did not fix the problem.  I've heard from another poster (different site) that Dell replaced the MB, SSD, CPU and that did not solve the problem.

Dell :: Plugged Power Adapter Into Wrong Laptop, Now Adapter Doesn't Work?

Nov 9, 2009

I have a Dell Inspiron 1520 and my friend has a Latitude D820.

Tonight she accidentally plugged my power adapter into her laptop. A few hours later, she noticed that her laptop indicated that it wasn't plugged in, and that's when we realized that she had accidentally used my adapter instead of hers.

Now my adapter doesn't work at all. We've tried the adapter with both our laptops with different outlets with the same problem, so we know it's the adapter. The green light also doesn't come on when it's plugged in anymore.

Did plugging my adapter into her laptop somehow screw up my adapter, or could this just be a coincidence? Is there any way to fix the adapter or at least figure out what the problem is? And if I have to purchase a new adapter, do the universal ones they sell at retail electronics stores work OK? I would order one from Dell but I'm working on a project now and I don't have time to wait for it to ship.

Mar 31, 2009

Is this normal that when the machine has no cable attached is very silent - the fan runs occasionally for a short period o time unlike when the laptop is plugged in, makes much more noise -

the fan only stops for about 3-4 min and starts cooling again for another 5-6min or sometimes longer depends on work..?

Dell XPS 13 :: Trackpad Not Working When Plugged Into AC Adapter

Mar 21, 2012

I just bought this so called Ultrabook a few days ago and already encountering trackpad issues. It only started happening since yesterday, but figured out then when you plug in the AC Adapter to charge the battery, The trackpad begins to lag or stop working all together.

Yesterday, the trackpad fixed itself somehow so I ignored it, but tonight as I was working on some uni assignments, my laptop battery was low so I plugged it in. The trackpad immediately stopped working and I could no longer work. I "Googled" to no avail, I downloaded the new driver for Cypress, but that too did not work.

Dell Inspiron N5010 :: AC Adapter Unknown Plugged In (not Charging)

Jan 19, 2014

So, I've had a dead battery on my Inspiron N5010 that would not hold a charge. I also noticed that when i plug in the Dell 65W AC adapter that came with my computer without the battery (as a temporary power source) and the light on the AC Adapter shut off. I've used other dell AC adapters and the same thing happens (AC adapter light cut off). Identifying these problems, I purchased a new battery and the battery worked perfectly fine but when i plug in the AC Adapter, the AC Adapter light would cut off and would not charge the battery. I figured it was a Mobo issue but discovered that the I/O ports for the AC Adapter are on the daughterboard. I purchased and replaced the daughterboard. I plugged in the AC Adapter and now the light on the Adapter stays on. The adapter can now be used with or without the battery but it will not charger the battery. Every time I turn on my Dell Inspiron N5010 laptop, I get the following message:

"The AC adapter wattage and type cannot be determined. The battery may not charge. The system will adjust the performance to match the power available. Please connect a Dell 65W AC adapter or greater for the best system performance."

- I replaced the I/O circuit board (daughter board)

- I Flashed the BIOS

- I Installed Dell QuickSet

- I am using the 65W Dell AC adapter that came with the laptop

- The AC adapter that came with my N5010 works on other Dell laptops

- I've used a different 65W Dell AC Adapter. 

- The adapter is not charging the battery (Plugged in but not charging)

- The green light on the adapter stays on all the time when in use

Inside of the BIOS the AC Adapter Type is "Unknown". what else do you recommend I do?

Dell XPS 13 :: (9333) Constant Noise As Soon As Powered On

Dec 27, 2013

I have just recently received a new XPS 13 with the new haswell i7 processor, 8gb RAM, 256gb ssd, and windows 8.1.

I really like this laptop, but it makes a really bizarre noise. It happens constantly as soon as its powered on, like a high pitched whirring sound from somewhere beneath the keyboard. It also seems pretty inconsistent, like it flickers in frequency, and when you use programs (e.g scroll through webpages) it gets louder.

Dell :: Looking To Install BLACK Keyboard In My XPS M1330. Who Makes This Non-OEM Keyboard?

Aug 23, 2009

From what I've read around here the black keyboard on the Dell Vostro 1400 (PN JM629) fits on the XPS m1330 and now I'm looking to buy it.

The problem is, this keyboard costs $49.99 on Dell. I have found it on ebay for $16 shipped on ebay, but the thing is, the ebay listing says:

"New high quality keyboard
100% manufacturer compatible
Equivalent Replacement Part"

Apple :: Late 2008 MBP Keyboard - Left Side Of The Keyboard Feels Mushy

Mar 11, 2009

I've had my MBP for about 4 month now and have been having problems with its keyboard since I bought it. First, the "Z" key sank in (I think there was a problem with the spring). I took it to the Apple Store, and they "fixed" on the spot (it's much harder to press and only registered a key press 70% of the time). The lower right corner of the "E" has noticeably sunk in, and I need to resort to pressing the upper left corner. Also, the left side of the keyboard feels "mushy", not hugely so, but definitely noticeable after typing a few sentences. Can I request that Apple just replace the entire keyboard instead of just individual keys?

Acer :: Is It Possible To Change 1810/1410 Keyboard For A Thinkpad Keyboard

May 22, 2010

Had a search on the forums and couldn't really find this.

Is it possible to change the Acer 1810T keyboard to a thinkpad one?

Are they the same size? Could it work?

I love the Acer, just not its keyboard and miss the thinkpad keyboard - which really encourages typing. The acer really doesn't.

If the thinkpad keyboard isn't possible, what else might be?

HP/Compaq :: HP Mini Keyboard Versus Acer Aspire One Keyboard

Feb 24, 2009

I currently have an AA1 and am curious to those who tried typing on both the HP Mini and the AA1 keyboards and noticed a difference. I believe the HP's keyboard is 92% and the AA1's is 89% I believe. It feels "okay" to type on, obviously not the best due to its size compared to a normal keyboard, but am wondering if the HP's is worth the price jump (paid 300 for mine).

Dell :: Plugged In Not Charging

Oct 4, 2009

I recently got the dreaded "Plugged in, not charging" message in vista of my Dell XPS 1530.My laptop is out of warranty .I tried all the methods suggested and flashed the bios to A09 from A12.I also checked the BIOS and it says

Battery Charge = 6%
Charger = 90W

Also when I connect the charger the charging light would flash for 5 sec. and then go off.Due to this the battery charge has moved from 6% to 7%.

I cannot buy a new mbd worth $500 . Any other cure for this ????

Dell XPS 13 :: Not Charging But Plugged In

May 23, 2014

My Dell XPS 13 Ultrabook is plugged in but will not charge.  The battery is completely drained and the power will immediately shut off when the power cable is unplugged.  The battery meter indicates "O% Available (plugged in, not charging)".  Every time I restart it I am told to plug in a Dell charger with 45 watts or greater.  Thinking my charger might have been the issue, I just purchased a Dell replacement charger, and it is still not recognizing it.  I have seen on other posts that indicate a possible solution is to update the BIOS; however, when I download and try to run the latest BIOS, I am told that the battery needs to be at least 10% charged in order to update.

Dell XPS 15 :: Not Charging But Is Plugged In?

Jun 26, 2012

my  Dell XPS 15z is only ten months old while on my computer last night something popped up saying:

'The AC power adapter type cannot be determined.

Your system will operate slower and battery will not charge. 

This problem might be solved by:

Ensure the plug is inserted completely for best system operation. Connect a Dell 130W adapter or higher'

i've always taken really good care of my laptop never dropped it or anything i hope that its not broke...

if it is broken and i have my year warranty do i still pay for whatever new part i need?
