Dell :: Laptop HD Why The Extra Pins For The 4100?

Oct 28, 2009

I have a working Inspiron 4100 and a maybe working 1200. I wanted to pull the hard drive from the 4100 to test the 1200 which may have a dead hard drive.

I found that it wouldn't fit. The drive from the 4100 has a set of three extra pins making it different than the 1200 hard drive. Is this normal? Why the extra pins for the 4100?

HP Pavilion Dv6000 :: Adding Extra RAM To Laptop

Apr 22, 2014

I know I can add 1G more RAM to my HP dv6000 laptop which Currently has 1 gig RAM to give a total of 2 G.  But since  I upgraded the operating system from Vista to Windows 7 with SP1 64 bit , 1.6 ghz, can I add even more to achieve a total of 3 G or 4 G?   It looks like the limiting factor is the 1.6 ghz speed.

Dell :: Studio XPS 1640 1645 Serial Flash CMOS PINS

Apr 4, 2010

Dell Studio XPS 1640 1645 Serial Flash CMOS PINS

The process to be used appears credibly outlined at the following web address:

But the laptop used in the above web site is not that of a Dell Studio XPS 1640 or 1645. So parts location, disassembly and reassembly are unique with the 1640 & 1645.

I have had the 'privilege' to be stonewalled by Dell 'customer service' when requesting the lost password to access CMOS & BIOS setup on my Dell Studio XPS 1640.

I purchased a used Studio XPS 1640 that was just under 2 months out of warranty from another who was disgusted with the hassles that have developed with some of the 1640s & 1645s over heat, throttling, RGB screen blinking, inadequate power supply, etc, etc. The formal transfer of ownership was immediately completed on Dell's web-site .....

HP/Compaq :: How Many Pins Is The Dv6z Firewire Port

Sep 11, 2009

I want to transfer some old DV tapes to DVDs through an old JVC mini-DV camcorder with a DV/4-pin firewire connection but I do not know how many pins the firewire port on my laptop is. I was under the impression that all notebooks used a 4-pin connection, and it looks like it is 4 pins, but the connector pin assignments section of the user manual lists it as 6 pins.

Dell Inspiron 4100 :: Position Of Cursor Changes While Typing?

Sep 21, 2003

I have in inspiron 4100 for about 14 months. I have noticed that while typing, the cursor my move back  to a different position in the line, move to a previous line, or jump to another text box altogether.  It drives me crazy that when I type, I never know if there is some combination of keys or if I accidently touch something to make the cursor change position.

Is there by default some combination of keys that cause cursor movement. It has happened 4 times while typing this message.

Can this be turned off?

HP DV7T-4100 Audio :: No Sound At All - With Built In Speakers / Headset Or Using HDMI Connection To TV

Jun 11, 2014

DV7T-4100 w/Intel i5 M460 processor
Product ID: WW189AV
Windows 7 (64 bit) Home Premium
My laptop has no sound at all - built in speakers, earbuds, not even when connected to my TV using the HDMI port (which is a separate driver).
2 weeks ago all sound was working. I was watching (and listening) youtube videos using my earbuds. I stopped a video and left my laptop unused until the next day. There were no installs or updates applied that I am aware of. The next day I closed Youtube and played words with friends and there was no sound. I restarted the laptop and still no sound.
I have read and worked through many processes and fixes found on this and other forums but have been unable to get sound working. I also attempted to restore my laptop back to prior to this issie but my restore points fail (corrupted).
Drivers: Both drivers are present and state they are working properly - they are current versions
ATI high definition Audio Device   Date  5/6/2010    Ver
IDT High Definition Audio Codec   Date  6/17/2010  Ver  6.10.6289.0
I have uninstalled (checked delete the driver software for this device) and reinstalled multiple times.
I have uninstalled, shutdown, removed power and battery, held power button for 30 seconds, then repowered and let the drivers reinstall (they automatically installed upon boot  I was not able to run the sp50642.exe that I downloaded).
I also used the HP Recovery tool and reinstalled the drivers to factory default
I have run Microsofts problem finder and it reports all is working.
I have verified there are no settings muted or disabled. When I test the speakers from"Sound and Headphones" Properties, I get "Failed to play test tone".
FYI - I have not done an update to the BIOS but I checked and mine is the updated version F.29 but the date is 14 days older then the downloadable SP55299 version.

Dell :: M6400 Extra Battery

Dec 12, 2008

My old Inspiron 8600 has a spare battery that fits into the optical drive bay. It's really a nice feature and lets me get over four hours battery life out of this dusty old laptop. Does the M6400 have a similar feature? I was wondering if there was a way to get some extra battery life out of it.

Dell :: XPS 15 9530 - Extra Capacity HDD

Jan 21, 2015

I'm a photographer, and bought an XPS 15 9630 to do my photo editing. The machine came with the 30Gb mSATA and 1Tb HDD, which wasn't nearly enough for my needs. I've successfully fitted a Samsung 1Tb mSATA, but I would like to upgrade the other drive also. At the moment I have 2 1Tb hard disks, and 2Tb total storage. (After a fair bit of fiddling in BIOS)

I have a Seagate Spinpoint M9T 2Tb disk which I would like to use,but when I fit it, it didn't show up in the BIOS or O/S. It works fine in other laptops. The disk that came with the laptop is 6mm, this one is 9mm, but seems to fit fine. The disk shows up if I remove the mSATA.Is this a problem that can be overcome?

Dell :: RAID :: Connecting An Extra Monitor

Possibly off topic, but it is related to a Dell Precision (workstation..)

A message that you don't want to see on your main file server..."TERMINAL DISK FAILURE"...
Happily, I just pull the borked disk out and stick in a spare (of the wrong capacity, but hey...) whilst awaiting the arrival of a replacement...and all is well

Sony :: New Z QuadSSD + Extra SSD CPU Bug

Apr 24, 2010

I managed to write a fix for the ACPI bug which was preventing proper power management if you add one more 2.5" SSD/HDD to the Quad SSD VPC-Z11.

Basically, it is a windows driver which loads very early (immediately after NT kernel and HAL) and dynamically patches the ACPI tables with the proper ones (which I dumped from the "bug-free" system state)

NOTE - the patch is for the very experienced users, so PLEASE read the readme.rtf VERY CAREFULLY and please think carefully whether you want to proceed further.

Naturally - It goes without saying that this is a potentially dangerous process, and that usage of any info from the attached file is at your own risk No, seriously, this can make your computer unbootable so please check the readme and do consider if you can perform the repair steps before trying to do anything! System backup is a must.

I believe I documented the process well, so that people with moderately advanced system knowledge can use this patch. There is a pre-compiled driver available in the /example directory, but that driver is valid for systems which have EXACTLY the same configuration as mine (all described in Readme)

If you have a different system (e.g. ACPI tables at different locations, different CPU from i7-620M, etc..), you will need to extract good ACPI data and re-build the driver by yourself. This process will require Windows DDK and some C/C++ programming knowledge. I cannot provide too much support there unfortunately, outside from I already wrote in readme.

Sep 17, 2008

my new dell E6400 just got a small scratch on the lid. It really bothers me because I can see it in most lighting even though it's not a big scratch. Part of the reason why I decided to buy a business line laptop is that it's suppose to be more durable. I have been careful with my laptop and it still got scratched. Does anybody know anything I can do to remove the scratch? Also, what is the most protective laptop sleeve for a 14.1 laptop with a 9 cell battery?
