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....

Dell Inspiron 3520 :: Shutdown Unexpectedly When Kept Idle For Sometime

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 :: Laptop Take 1 Minute To Boot

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 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 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.

Dell Inspiron N5010 :: Blank Screen At Startup (External Monitor Also Didn't Work)

Oct 7, 2012

I have an issue with my Inspiron N5010 screen, it doesn't work when switching on my laptop on Battery or AC mode. It happens a lot of times when I turn on the laptop the power button, the power indicators at the bottom turns on normally and the laptop is running without any weird sounds. But the screen is pitch black even doesn't show up anything when I concentrate on it in with a lamp or any light.

When I press the power button again even after 5 mins from the start time of being running the laptop just turn off immediately and doesn't take time to switch off as If the windows wasn't loaded!

I was resolving this problem by disconnecting the AC adapter > removing the battery > Pressing and hold the power button for 20 seconds technique.but today it doesn't work anymore, If there's anything I can do to get the screen backlight to work normally ....

Dell Inspiron 15R 5521N :: When Try To Connect Laptop To Acer Monitor With HDMI Cable / It Gives Signal Error

Mar 21, 2013

I have recently purchased Dell Inspiron 15R 5521N laptop with Windows 8 Pro. When I try to connect my laptop to an Acer monitor with an HDMI cable, it gives me a no signal error. But when the same laptop is connected to a Philips monitor using the same cable, it works perfectly. As usual I thought that the monitor was the culprit, but when I connected another laptop to the Acer monitor using the same cable it worked without any errors. So where does the problem lie. The HDMI cable is OK, the laptop is also OK as also the Acer monitor?

Dell :: Why Is My Laptop Running So Hot Idle

Dec 2, 2008

For the past few days, I woke up to my laptop's fan rather loud spinning. I noticed that my computer was constantly at 100% CPU usage even with like literally no processes opened, and it's idling ~50C.

It's to the point where moving my mouse across the screen lags, the pointer jumps from one spot to another.

I'm not really sure what the problem is, I ran AVG with no problem, and I don't remember doing anything to my computer in the past few days that would be considered abnormal...in fact, the only thing I did do was try to use a screensaver for the first time ever, but I turned it off with no difference,

Dell XPS 12 :: Fan Spins Up But Only When Machine Is Idle

Mar 21, 2013

While in use, the XPS 12 is usually fairly cool and quiet through normal operation. It spins up if in heavy use of course. This is whether on AC or battery power.

However, if the machine sits there and goes to idle, the fan spins up like crazy and the bottom warms up to. This is for hours and hours at a time - often if I leave the machine at night and come back in the morning this is the case.

I thought it might be some process that starts running when the machine is idle and away, but if I leave Task Manager open there isn't any disk or CPU activity that would indicate that happening.

Dell :: XPS 1640 Load System Fan Even When Idle

Jul 9, 2009

I just got the xps 1640 today and I'm very distracted by the loud system fan. It's audible all the time even when the computer is idle. I haven't been doing anything intensive on my computer either. The fan starts as soon as windows loads and never stops. I know this laptop has heat issues but I checked the core temp and it is only between 38-45degrees C. I know the fan can get louder under load, this is what I would describe as idle but still, it seems way too loud. It was raining earlier and I could hear the fan over the sound of raindrops hitting my roof. It's getting unbearable!!

Has anyone had the same experience? Or more importantly does anyone have a way to reduce the speed of the fan slighty? Speedfan doesn't seem to support my motherboard so I can't do it there.

System:
P8600 2.4ghz
4gb ram
320GB (7,200rpm) WD HD
