Dell :: XPS 1640 How To Shut Down The Screen Monitor During Work

Dec 14, 2009

I'm wondering if there is a way to shut down the Screen monitor on (Dell xps studeio 1640) while it's working downloading?

Usually there is a button on the keyboard for this kind of task, but I haven't been able to find any (Fn+Button) combination on the keyboard for this particular task..

PS. I know that putting the laptop screen all the way down is a way 2 solve this, but im looking for other or -the Button "shutdown" alternative....

Feb 8, 2013

I am using Dell Inspiron 15, Model 3520. I bought laptop in January 2013 and its started giving this kind of error.

When I am using it continuously its working fine , when i go away from system(kept idle for sometime) it gets shutdown. So I need to re-login and it closes all the application which i was using before shutdown.

I already did some initial checks like scanning entire system for virus(i hardly have any data on system) and Dell online PC Check which passes all the test.

Dell Inspiron 1545 :: Battery Is Marked As IDLE In BIOS

Dec 5, 2012

A few days ago, on my Inspiron 1545, my power adapter stopped working.

I started using an identical Dell adapter (exact same model PA-3E) to supply power to the laptop, power was working fine, but the battery would not charge.  The battery is at 0%.

In BIOS the adapter is recognised as the correct 90W adapter  but the battery is marked as "IDLE".

I have run Dell diagnostics and that says the battery is healthy, how can that be if it wont charge.

Dell Inspiron 1521 :: Laptop Battery On Idle - Plugged In Not Charging

Mar 26, 2013

When I start up my laptop, it makes a beeping sound then tells me something along the lines of,"AC power adapter wattage and type cannot be determined."And when I press F2, it tells me that my battery is operational but it is on idle but the lights on the battery do not glow.When I get it started up, on the actual home screen with icons and everything, if I hover above the battery icon it tells me, "Plugged in, not charging."

My AC power adapter has a small led light on it, and it is green. Before this, my laptop used to get very very hot, to the point that I could not even put it on my lap for too long. I would also sometimes put it on my bed where there is fabric. Also, there is a break on the AC adapter at the very top near where it gets plugged in. I also ran a diagnostic test and it gave me back a code, 2000-0142 .....

Also, my laptop is significantly slower and I am using an Inspiron 1521

Sep 18, 2009

I noticed that my laptop takes 1 minute to boot, you know when the black screen with windows xp logo appears, stays like that for 1 minute before I get to the blue screen where I can log in by choosing a user.

I remember my laptop used to take almost 30 seconds to boot and now is taking twice the time.

My system is a dell inspiron b120 with:

Windows XP Home Edition, Version 2002 Service pack 3.

Intel Celeron processor 1.40 Ghz, 1.24GB of ram

I have had this laptop for few years so I know its getting old but sometimes we can do something to make it work better

Dell :: Screen Was Black And Turned Off After ~1 Minute

Dec 15, 2007

So last night I replaced the motherboard and Video Card on my E1705. Everything booted fine. There were a few things I needed to fix, but the computer worked. In doing so I noticed I only had 512 RAM, so one of the sticks wasn't being recognized. I figured I must have put it in wrong, so I took them both out and put them right back in. I then tried to start the computer, and the power light and numbers lock lights came on, and the caps and scroll lock lights started flashing. The screen was black and turned off after ~1 minute.

Did I fry my RAM, or is something wrong with the motherboard reading the RAM? This is freaking me out.

Dell Inspiron 15R N5110 :: Only Works When Plugged In Otherwise Just Shut Down

Dec 1, 2014

My laptop just shut down on me out of nowhere. The battery wasn't low, in fact it had just finished charging. It wouldn't turn back on until I plugged it back in and tried. The battery is at 86%, not charging. The battery indicator light flashes red 4 times, then white then off.

It can now only run when it is plugged in. I can start my laptop and it runs fine while plugged in but as soon as it is unplugged, it shuts off.

I assume this is a hardware issue and what caused it. Nonetheless, I used the diagnostic tools provided and found no issue and tried a system restore to no avail.

My laptop is a few weeks out of warranty (classic)...

Dell Inspiron 1525 :: Cpu Has Been Overheating And Eventually Causing Laptop To Shut Off

Oct 29, 2011

 I have a Dell Inspiron 1525 laptop with a Intel Celeron Processor and the past year my cpu has been overheating and eventually causing my laptop to shutoff. This happens a lot quicker if playing graphics intensive games or playing youtube videos. I want a processor that can handle playing games and videos.

Also, one thing I was thinking was that maybe a fan stopped working that is causing the CPU to over heat but when I run a Dell diagnostic no errors come up about a fan not working, so I'm thinking I just need to upgrade.

Below is my System info:

System ModelInspiron 1525System TypeX86-based PCProcessorIntel(R) Celeron(R) CPU
560 @ 2.13GHz, 2128 Mhz, 1 Core(s), 1 Logical Processor(s)
Socket 479 mPGA
Motherboard model OU990C Chipset Intel GM965
BIOS Version/DateDell Inc. A16, 10/16/2008SMBIOS Version2.4

I have to upgrade the CPU in the Dell Inspiron 1525 laptop?

Dell Inspiron 5423 14z :: Reboot / Restart But Will Not Shut Down / Sleep Or Hibernate

Nov 9, 2014

I have a Dell Inspiron 14x 5423 that will reboot/restart but will not shut down, sleep, or hibernate.  The screen shows shutting down, the screen and the hard drive turns off, but the power light and fan stay on until the battery dies in the laptop.  I hold the power button and everything shuts off.  When booting, I do not get the windows improperly shut down error the I normally get when I just hold the power button to shut off the computer so I suspect the operating system is shut down!  I have tried updating bios to A13, video drivers, Chipset drivers, and Windows 8.1, The laptop passes all diagnostics.I even tried admin command prompt and "shutdown /s /f /h 0" command with no different results.  Changed all settings in Control Panel to enable sleep and/or hibernate.  I downloaded KB hot-fix which says it is for Windows 7 as another test.

Dell Inspiron 15 N5040 :: Won't Start Up / Suddenly Screen Turned Green And Then Shut Off

Feb 4, 2015

I have a Dell Inspiron 15 (N5040) and currently having problems with it. I was watching something this morning and suddenly the screen turned green and then shut off. It turns on but the screen refuses to. I first expected that the screen is just unplugged inside the computer so I tried to hook it up to my TV via Hdmi and oddly it didn't do anything.I took it all apart disconnecting everything and then reconnecting everything. Everything seemed to be in good shape. No signs of shorts. Then after letting it run I noticed it beep 4 times. According to Dell 4 beeps mean "Read/Write error." I don't know if they meant the ram or hdd so I tried isolating both sticks of ram and no difference. I tried putting in two different hdds, nothing different. Even if they were I don't know why the screen wouldn't turn on and the bios wouldn't try to load. I suspect that the gpu is just fried. Dell Inspiron 15 (N5040), Intel i3, 8 gb of ram. Windows 7.

Lenovo B / G Series :: G50 Blacking Out Every One Minute

Aug 4, 2014

I got my Lenovo G50 2months ago. So, it's not shabby at all. My problem is, every 1 minute it blacks out for 1 sec. I googled it and it says that I should go to power options, change plan settings to blanced (recommended)  and in "turn off the display" select "Never"  On both "On battery" and "Plugged in". Then I followed these steps, but nothing happens. I can't even use the warranty because it is bought abroad. I don't know what to do.

Dell :: Inspiron 1420 Only Works On External Monitor

Nov 2, 2009

i have an inspiron 1420, and want to bring it around school, i usually use it as a desktop at home using an external monitor(FN + F8), for some reason my laptop only works when plugged with a monitor, the laptop monitor is blank but you can see light at least, but no images whatsoever. I got it to work after reformatting the second time but not the 3rd 4th or 5th time.

I've noticed something strange though when formatting with xp, the letters were both gray and red, and when it gets to the page with the estimation(usually about 30 minutes) the picture quality was crap like 4bit.

I've noticed that when i successfully got the laptop monitor working the picture quality ran at a full 32bit

Dell Inspiron N5110 :: Detecting Second Monitor That Does Not Exist

Nov 13, 2014

I have an Inspiron N5110 that is about 2 years old. The hard drive was replaced in January this year after being damaged. For the past couple of months I have had a problem with a second monitor being detected when the mains power cable is connected. There has never been a second monitor connected to this laptop. The screen resolution changes and if you have the Display panel open you can see it switch between single monitor and dual monitor. Every time it does this the screen goes black and then comes back up, the mouse pointer resets to the middle of the screen and it makes the noise you would expect when something is being plugged in. All of this does not happen when running on battery power. It happens most when the battery power is almost full or almost empty and the screen can change anywhere up to every 1-2 seconds at this time. When the charge is more towards the middle of the battery it happens a lot less often, maybe only every couple of minutes. It is almost to the point where the laptop is unusable if it is charging. We have checked the display drivers and reinstalled them just in case it was that but it didn't seem to make any difference.

Dell Inspiron N5050 :: Monitor Won't Start After Any Update

Nov 26, 2014

I have upgraded my Win 7 operating system to Win 8.1. on my Dell Inspiron NS5050. All other components remain the same. The first deals with the USB Port.  I insert a USB and it is not recognized. I open Device Manager and in Properties uninstall the the Driver and reboot.  The USB now works correctly.  Why does this keep happening? Tried to update Driver but comes back device is up to date.  When USB fails I get message, "Windows has stopped this device because it has reported problems. (Code 43)".

Second Issue.  Monitor won't start after any updates.  After several times starting and restarting, I connected to an external monitor.  External monitor starts and I can Log In. Computer functions normally with external monitor.  Device Manager one time showed an error with the monitor.  I deleted the driver and the original monitor worked correctly. Other times with a simple "Windows Defender" update monitor won't start.  Using external monitor works every time.  Additional monitor switching sometimes works other times not.  Not sure what is wrong with the F1 key. Turns on and off monitor?

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.
