Dell :: Dell Inspiron - Monitor To Shut Off After 1 Minute Of Being Idle


when i first got my dell inspiron and it was all good. when i set the monitor to shut off after 1 minute of being idle, it did and would not turn on unless someone moved the mouse of pressed a button. however, after i reformatted, the computer monitor would shut off after 1 min but soon afterwards it turns on again by itself, then it goes off again, then it remains on permanently. i recently formatted my laptop again and this problem persists. anyone knows whats sup? im using xp ftw... and my configurations are the same as it was before the reformats so idk whats wrong.

Dell :: XPS 1640 How To Shut Down The Screen Monitor During Work
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 1420 Often Freeze And Auto Shut Down/restart
Recently, I have a problem with my Dell Inspiron 1420 as it's often freeze and auto shut down or restart. When it freezes, my screen will appear many small black pixels which are scattered around the desktop.

During the restart process, the system will require me to choose one of the few options available (eg. Start Windows Normally) as it stated there that the laptop was not shut down properly.

Remarks: My Dell Inspiron 1420 is equipped with NVidea 8400M GS.

Dell :: Laptop Take 1 Minute To Boot
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
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 1420 Only Works On External Monitor
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 6400 On External Monitor, Regions Of Image Flash
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 :: XPS M1710 GPU & CPU Temps At Idle?
My dell xps m1710 temps at idle are

CPu 54C To 58C
GPU 54C To 58C

Is that okay?

The bottom of the computer is hot to the touch and the fans are blowing out hot air. I cleaned all fans and heat sink vents. also re applied all thermal paste on the cpu and gpu. Im concerned because my motherboard and gpu were just replaced yesterday for heat issues i believe. havent figured out if the heat was the cause or not. the temps were the same as there now with the new motherboard and gpu .....

Dell :: Xps 1340 Temp Goes Up When Idle
I have a Dell XPS 1340, P8700, 9500M GS.

I noticed that when idle the temperature slowly goes up to 65C, then the fan kicks in, lowers it to 45 and stops. The temperature goes up again and in about 2 minutes it is already 65 again.
The process repeats indefinitely.

Dell :: Why Is My Laptop Running So Hot Idle
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 1530 Idle Temp
i was reading a few other posts about idle temps of the GPU in the XPS 1530 and my temps are way above what everyone else is getting.

I have an idle GPU temp of approx 80-88 degrees celsius. I mean i could maybe expect that under a heavy load, but an idle temp??? The fan seems to be on all the time.

Dell :: XPS 1640 Load System Fan Even When Idle
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

Dell :: M4400 Ethernet Adapter Disconnects When Idle On AC Power
If I leave my M4400 idle with Windows (Vista Ultimate 32-bit) locked and the screensaver on for any length of time (e.g. 20 minutes), then the network card goes into power-saving mode even while on AC power, reducing the connection speed from 1Gbps to 100Mbps. I can see this because the colour of the LED on the port changes. The reduction in speed causes a brief disconnection from the network. When I unlock Windows, there is another brief disconnection as it reverts to 1Gbps, and this causes instant messaging applications to log out.

If I go to the Link Speed tab on the network card's properties in Device Manager and force it to 1Gbps instead of Auto Negotiation, it warns me that power-saving features will be disabled, but then I don't experience the problem and it never disconnects. "Reduce link speed during battery operation" is unticked, but this should not apply to AC power anyway. I've tried upgrading the driver to 9.50.14.2, A01 (released on 24/02/2009) but the problem still happens.

Does anyone else experience this?

Dell :: Quiet And Cool. Thermal Paste Replaced! 38@idle 73@load
I replaced the thermal paste of the CPU and the GPU with "Coollaboratory liquid pro". And I replaced the thermal pad of the northbridge with "Arctic Silver 5" thermal paste.

Here are my sesults (in a 20 degrees Clesius enviroment, T9600, 2,8GHz, stock voltage):
73 dregrees Celsius at 100% load
(instead of 92)
39 dregrees Celsius at 0% load (fan off)
(instead of 45)

According to my research and different experiments this combination is my actual optimum.
The cooler and more silent system supports my usage of voice recognition (using the internal mic).
Of cause later the voltage could be reduced using rmclock.....

Dell :: Studio 1555 Users: Do You Have A TRUE Stable Idle Temp?
My Idle temp seems to be within the range of:

27C-43C for CPU
44C-51C for GPU

These are temps when I'm not even doing anything. The fan activates when the GPU hits 51C and stops when the GPU temp reaches 44C. The CPU doesn't seem to be a factor in activating the fan.

Use I8Kfangui to see your CPU and GPU temps. Just don't click on AUtomatic Fan Control because that will severely lag your system until you turn it off. http://www.diefer.de/i8kfan/index.html

HP/Compaq :: High Idle/under Load Temperatures
i purchased one compaq cq45-137tx in december. I guess it' similar to the dv4t models marketed in other countries.

model details

there are couple of temperature issues with this lappy ( ambient temp 25-30C):

1. at idle ( just media player or maybe a pdf file open), the cpu temp is at 43C, northbridge always above 50, gpu always above 55.hd also tends to operate at 45-48C. this is inspite of the fact that i am running this thing with no vents blocked ..and in fact the RAM, cmos battery and hd covers removed to allow better air circulation.

2. at normal load ( game like burnout paradise, with utor going on in background), cpu tends to reach 60 C, gpu at 80 C , northbridge at 70C and hd at 60 C.

3. cpu temp never seem to change really. tried using various s/w' like realtemp ( shows 28 C for gpu..which i dont think is feasible). only when i reboot after a high load session, the s/w' show higher temperatures ( and the notebook shows erratic behavior with display artifacts!).

4. the only fan in the machine never appears to speed up or down. i don't have an issue with the noise, as long as it helps this thing run cooler.......

Acer :: Aspire 5100 - What The Average Idle/ Light Usage Temperatures Are
i have an older laptop (Acer Aspire 5100), Still works like new, but I was wondering what the average idle/ light usage temperatures are? Right now I'm getting a pretty solid temp reading at 45C, which I think it pretty good for a laptop. Anyone else have same/similar model (AMD D-C x64 TK-53 1.70 Ghz) that could give me there temps. Secondly I recently replaced the LCD and inverter. The inverter was for the orginal LCD but i got a matte screen instead of the glossy. I'm not sure whether it's always been like this since the original inverter, but i notice it get pretty warm over the plastic. I'm know there's quite a bit of voltage going through there, but it is it normal to get warm? (not burning temp, but noticeable hot/warm to the touch

Acer :: 1810t Abnormal Idle Power Consumption After X264 Video
Just got my new 1810t delivered today. Mine is the one with the SU4100.

Notice that at idle it goes to 5.5-6w. Great. After anything intensive I do it always drops down to that level. However, when i watch DXVA x264 accelerated video in MPC or WMP, i notice that after quitting my idle power consumption jumps an average of two watts. The only way to get back to normal idle power consumption is by putting the laptop into sleep mode, then waking it back up again.

Watching the same x264 video in VLC which does not support DXVA doesnt result in the increase in idle power consumption.

Watching DXVA accelerated youtube HD content with flash 10.1 doesnt increase power consumption either.

Running the latest (15.16.2.64.1986) video drivers, but the same problem was present on the stock drivers that came with the laptop. Version of those drivers was unknown. Wattage was measured using both batterymon, and batterybar.

Dell :: XPS 1645 Random Shut Off
My Dell XPS 1645 [see sig for specs] will random shut off on me. I will be doing anything from watching a movie, listening to music, or just browsing and it will random shut off. They are like days apart but It shut off 3 times on my today :S.

These shut offs are not Temperature related as In BOTH Windows and Ubuntu it has shut off and I have been monitoring temperature in both, with log files so I can check the temperature @ shut off time.

I live in Jamaica and it would be kind of hard for me to just send it in to have it looked at. I'm hoping the next BIOS revision along with fresh installs of both OS's will do the trick.

Dell :: M6400 Wireless Radio Shut Down
This morning when I turned the M6400 on, my wireless had shut down, showing a X on the tray icon.

It has been working fine under my Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit for weeks, since I used the free upgrade I got from the Microsoft Windows 7 demo. The Intel 5300 was fine in device manager.

When I ran the Intel ProSet Wireless diagnostics, it said that the Radio is Switched Off. The driver is the latest Intel 13.0.0 version for Windows 7 64bit.

I called Dell Business Support and the tech spent an hour uninstalling and reinstalling the driver, reinstalling the ProSet utilities and trying to find a way to get the radio to switch on.

He tried to uninstall the Intel generic driver and install the older Dell driver, but apparently could not get the Intel to uninstall, so the installation of the older driver kept failing.

Dell :: M1530 Shut Down (dual Boot)
I'm running a dual boot on my m1530 with Vista and XP. I used a link I found on these forums to find the XP drivers, put them on the disc, and install them that way. I tried to find the link again, but I cant.

Anyways, the problem is that when I close the laptop lid in XP (the problem does not occur in Vista) the screen goes black (maybe into hibernation?) and I have to hold the power button down to shut down the computer and restart it. I've tried fooling around with settings and that doesnt help.

Maybe it's a driver issue? Can some one lead me to the correct driver...or tell me what else may resolve the problem?

Then eventually, after I kept trying it just started working again like normal until yesterday when I was watching a video and all the sudden it just shut the screen off..

Dell :: Latitude D620 Screen Goes Blank When Shut-opened
For me it happens when I shut the laptop screen and open it again right away. If I wait a few beats before I open it, the screen lights up again just fine.

But if I open it right away after closing it, the screen goes blank, though the laptop seems to be running just fine.

Hitting Fn-CRT/LCD does nothing, nor do any other of the function keys.
I even tried hooking up an external monitor and banging away at the CRT/LCD combo, but the external monitor is just as blank as the laptop LCD.

Hard power-down will restart the laptop and the screen comes back fine, but you've lost any unsaved work .....

Then again restarts to after some time. I tried putting on sleep and but comes out of sleep. My entire battery gets drained throughout the night so i assume must be restarting many times..Also with battery even if i pick it up and put it in the case it restarts.

2) while working the Windows Media Centre window keeps on popping up almost continuously for about 20-30 times n then stops. then will start all over again all by itself. (maybe this is related to the shut down/sleep problems?)

HP/Compaq :: Shut Down During Vista Clean Installation
I have a HP Dv2700 Cto Notebook with the following specifications

Intel Core 2 Duo 2.1 Ghz,
3 GB RAM,
250Gb Harddisk,
GeForce 8400 Graphics Card
OS - Windows Vista Home Premium

I had followed the Steps in notebookreview.com for "Clean install of Windows Vista" and installed Vista on my Laptop 6 months back and it worked perfectly fine.

Last week, i started facing issues with Vista and the system would automatically Hibernate.

The screen would go blank automatically even while its been used.

So, i decided to clean install Vista again.

I ran the Vista setup CD and using the Vista partition utility, formatted the Primary Parition c: (i have 3 paritions).

I started the setup and after copying 66% of the files. The system automatically shut itself down.

I Had to re-start the setup.

When i restarted the setup, the setup doesnt even start copying files. it shuts down during the initializing setup screen............
