Dell XPS 14 :: Keeps Randomly Cutting Out Power

Feb 4, 2015

Over the last several weeks, my laptop has been losing power randomly.  Sometimes it happens when it is running on battery (and has plenty of power), and sometimes it happens when I go to plug it in.  The computer just turns off.  How do I resolve this problem?

Dell :: Laptop Cutting Out Because Its Getting Too Hot?

Jan 18, 2009

I have had a few problems with my laptop but to cut a long story short not too long ago power was randomly cutting which I think was in part due to a motherboard that dell installed because it did not like new updates anyway they looked at that and I dont have that issue any more but when I load up games like TF2 which I just installed on the other laptop or even WOW when I played it, it runs for a min or two and then the laptop just cuts.

Apple :: Power Cord Seems To Randomly Fail

May 10, 2009

I keep my computer plugged in when I'm at home, but my power cord keeps "shutting itself off" and stops charging. So sometimes I check my battery power and there's like 24% left. My battery seems to be holding a charge for now, but my power cord seems to randomly fail. Never in my life have I ever heard of power cords failing-I'm sure it happens but this is ridiculous.

Dell :: Studio 1535 Cutting Out

Jan 4, 2009

i got mine in july and then in september the screen suddenly just went blank and the whole laptop just died.

It wouldnt turn back on and so Dell replaced the motherboard. Laptop came back and worked fine. But then all of a sudden it kept cutting out randomly again but would switch back on.

But then on saturday it cut out and now wont turn back on again. So will have to be sent off again now!

Anyone heard of this problem before? Getting very anoyed by it

Also sometimes the speakers just wont work at all and the CD drive button stays on and keeps trying to eject a disc even if there isnt one in there!

HP/Compaq :: HP Pavillion Dv9000-wireless Has Been Cutting In And Out And Sometimes Takes About A Half Hour To An Hour To Be Able To Connect Again

Mar 9, 2009

For a while now, my wireless has been cutting in and out and sometimes takes about a half hour to an hour to be able to connect again. Other laptops in the house connect to the same internet connection just fine. I met a girl last night who was saying how her internet wont connect anymore and she had the same laptop as me so I'm assuming its the computer and not the internet.

even before this issue though, the wireless networks window, when you click on the two computers to see the different connections, it always freezes to a white window to begin with and will take up til an hour to actually show the different connections.

This problem is incredibly annoying and i just want a solid internet connection without it cutting out .

Dell XPS 14Z :: Randomly Shuts Down

May 7, 2013

My XPS 14z isn't even one year old and it feels like 3 years old because of this problem. It is always just randomly shutting down. No warning, nothing, it just cuts off. The screen goes black and when I turn it back on, its like I did a "force shut down" so I always have to select "start windows normally".  I actually started keeping a list of all the times it has shut down because it happens so often. I just like pick it up, or slightly shift the computer and bam the screen goes black. Also sometimes the laptop will shut down and wont even turn back on until I plug in the power cord! I am tired of the laptop shutting down in the middle of something important!

Dell :: Studio 17 Randomly Going To Sleep

Nov 29, 2009

I've been having this issue for about a week or so. I thought perhaps it was because I updated the ATI driver, but I did a rollback and the issue still persists.

I have checked my battery settings and nothing stands out. I don't have my laptop set to go to sleep under any circumstances other then closing the lid, but during operation it will just go to sleep.

Has anyone else experienced this issue? I'm running Windows 7 64-bit. When it goes to sleep, sometimes the power button is unresponsive in waking the computer back up. It will take quite a while before I am able to do anything to get the computer back up and running.

Dell :: XPS M1330 Randomly Beeps

Feb 16, 2009

My brand new m1330 (I've had it less than a week) has been making a high pitched beeping noise completely randomly. I havn't noticed any pattern in when it makes the noise either, whether it be plugged in, on battery, plugged in without a battery, battery settings on power saver, battery settings on performance, none of it makes a difference.

The kind of beep seems random as well, sometimes it is a single beep, other times it is a few beeps strung together like a chirping noise.

Nothing happens on screen when the beeps occur either. I've done some googling, and cant find an answer to why its beeping.

I guess my primary concern would be if this is a problem, and if i need to contact dell about it. Or, if anyone else has experienced this, and whether or not there is an easy fix for it. Its kind of annoying, and I've gotten a few funky looks in class.

Dell :: Laptop Randomly Freezes

Jun 29, 2009

I have a strange issue I was hoping one of you could help me solve. I have a dell latitude d620.

I bought this laptop used and always had some issues with it. At first the machine used to have some random power failure, where i would plug it in and the screen would go black. So I went ahead and replaced the motherboard.

Now after many months I took the machine to work and when i got home it will randomly freeze. I went ahead and tried a different harddrive, with the same result. So I tried to reformat the drives and it occurs on both as well

Dell Latitude D800 :: Will Not Power On / No BIOS Information Displayed / No Power On Self Test

Apr 16, 2013

I have a Dell Latitude D800 that will not power on. When the power button is pushed the green power indicator light comes on, the CDROM spins for a moment, but then nothing happens, there is no BIOS information displayed, no power on self test, no Dell logo. It just sits there with the green power light on.I have tried removing the power & battery then pressing the power button for 10 seconds (actually, I have tried as long as 60 seconds). I have tried to turn on with the power connected but not the battery. I have tried removing the connector cable for the power button and the connector cable for the display and then reseating them.

Dell :: E1505 Randomly Stopped Working

Sep 23, 2009

So my E1505 randomly stopped working on me. I'm thinking the mobo is shot, but thought I would ask everyone here and see if you can shed some light on it.

So basically, the machine just shut off and when I try to turn it on the numlock button lights up, and the caps lock and scroll lock buttons flash. This lasts for about 30 seconds, and then all power shuts off. Nothing comes up on the screen, and it doesn't even sound like it is trying to work. I've checked all connections, reseated/thermal greased CPU, everything I could think of.

Dell XPS 14z :: Randomly Freezes With One Program Running

Apr 3, 2013

Having issues with my XPS 14z freezing randomly. The system never seems to be overheating when this problem occurs and it has occurred when I've had as little as one program running. I have had issues with this laptop shutting off randomly before. Dell sent someone out to replace the motherboard, heatsink and fan and this had the system running reasonably well for a while. However now I have been presented with a new issue which could be related to the one I was having before?

Dell :: Inspiron 1525 DVD Drive Randomly Ejecting

Nov 21, 2008

I have had a problem with the DVD drive for a few months now. Sometimes the light on it flashes and you here it attempting to look for a DVD (When it's empty). When it's full it sometimes flashes and runs autorun. After it flashes it also ejects half the time, and also it'll just eject randomly without any warning or loading noises.

I explained the problem to Dell and they sent me a replacement DVD drive, but the problem still happens, so I'm guessing it's not the DVD drive itself.

Does anyone have any ideas on how I could solve this problem?

Dell Inspiron 1545 :: Shutting Off Randomly But Isn't Overheating

Jan 18, 2015

My wife's Inspiron 1545 from late 2008 is having a new issue wherein it is randomly shutting off but not due to heat.  The computer will shut off when not connected to AC power randomly.  Sometimes it will last 10 minutes, other time 40.  What's odd the is computer reads anywhere from 50% - 85% battery life left.  

I'm certain it's not overheating because it doesn't get hot.  Also,I disassembled rear cover and reset the CPU cooler with new thermal paste as a precaution yet the problem persists.

I ran the boot hardware diagnostic test all the way through with no errors.  The harddrive has no audible clicking/crunching which usually indicates an HDD headed south.
