Dell :: M1530 Charges In Intervals

Mar 25, 2009

I have a dell m1530 laptop which just yesterday had a motherboard replaced for the 2nd time by a dell tech because it wasn't charging anymore and the adapter was unrecognized (common problem in this model).

After the tech replaced the mobo we noticed that it would charge for 2 seconds, stop for 20-30 seconds and charge again for 2 seconds, it just kept going like this.

The tech had no clue what was causing this, he's never seen this before and didn't bother calling dell because well "they're just a bunch of f***ing idiots" (his words lol) and would probably just send another mobo

Dell :: Refurb Battery Only Charges To 47%

Dec 17, 2009

The battery is clearly a refurb. I believe refurbished batteries are just fine, so long as they are built by reputable & knowledgeable folks who are using newly made replacement cells.

But this battery will only charge to 47%. The 5-light strip on the back lights two lights only (no blinking). A handful of programs all say the battery us at 47%.

I think this may be an issue with the smart board inside the battery. Is this something that gets calibrated through the bios? How do you run "battery learning"? (...or is it shot?) ..

Acer :: AC Adapter No Longer Charges After 1 Yr

Oct 30, 2008

I'm not quite sure why this no longer charges. (Acer Aspire 5610 series) I made sure that I wrapped it correctly (not wrapping around the battery)...are there any alternatives that I may use instead of purchasing brand new from acer itself? I previously purchased one from ebay that was pure garbage. The charge lasted for all of about 10 minutes and the mousepad was dysfunctional with the charger plugged in.

Acer :: Battery On 3810T No Longer Fully Charges

Mar 3, 2010

After 6 months of moderate use, the battery on my 3810T seems to not want to fully charge. The battery indicator in windows (win 7 home premium 64bit), shows the max charge at 88% and the front led stays yellow for a long time when plugged in (over 12 hrs) before finally just turning off instead of going to blue to indicate a full charge.

Dell Inspiron N5110 :: Randomly Gives 5 Beeps - Repeat After Small Intervals

Apr 5, 2013

I have a dell inspiron n5110 and it randomly gives me 5 beeps and they repeat and small intervals. Now after some research I found out that the five beeps indicate problem with the CMOS battery, Am I right? And if so then why don't the beeps stick, why do they only happen at random? Why do they go away by restarting the system?I'm just wondering if this really is the battery or something else? And If I should replace it.

Dell Inspiron 15 5000 :: Two Finger Scroll Functionality Breaks At Irregular But Very Frequent Intervals?

Jan 4, 2015

My new inspiron 15 has an issue with the touchpad - the two finger scroll functionality breaks at irregular but very frequent intervals.

I'd spend 15 minutes on the computer and I'd suddenly not be able to use any multi-finger gestures on the touchpad, specifically the two-finger scroll. I've noticed that at that point, pinch zoom doesn't work either which leads me to believe it's a general issue with multi-finger gestures.

Restarting the computer always fixes it.

I can't tell if this is a hardware defect or a software issue.I've reinstalled the latest touchpad drivers from dell but it has made no difference.

Lenovo B / G Series :: G470 Shutdown And Cannot Use It For A Time (in Intervals Of 10-12 Days)

Mar 10, 2013

My problem with Lenovo G470 is this: every 10, 12 days it shutdowns and can't use it for a time. I'm doing anything (listening to music, writting a text, etc) or sometimes I'm afk and just doing nothing and it happens anyway. And then, for a time it's impossible to start windows. I turn on the laptop and the Lenovo logo appears, but then just shuts down.
Maybe 4-5 hours later it starts to work ok again. Im not sure aboout this because when this happen i usually leave it there and come back the next day.

Also, this happens on battery or plugged in. Is the same. Another weird thing that occurs sometimes is that when I'm using it on battery and I turn it off, the laptop shutdown, but the on/off button light doesn't turns off. I need to plug it in to solve this. I don't know if could be related, but I replaced the W7 home basic with the ultimate version. While I had it with home basic this didn't happened, but it was a short time (2 days) so I couldn't determine if this is related. Anyway I have the recovery CDs if a probable solution would be that.

I've read here about solutions like flashing the bios. I didn't do it but I could try it if you think it could work. I don't know if there are new updates. The truth is I'm a total newbie on flashing the bios.I can't turn on the laptop with the on/off button. But if I press space and escape it turns on again, and fails again of course.

HP Pavilion Dv8 Lockups :: Treble / Bass Control Sporadically Pop Up And Start Changing Settings At Random Intervals

May 27, 2010

I have had my Pavilion dv8 for a few months now.  A month or two after I received it, I began experiencing problems with the slider treble/bass control.  It would sporadically pop up and start changing the treble or bass at random intervals.  It also randomly disconnected me from my wireless connection.  I thought this might just have something to do with the slider being dirty, but after several attempts of cleaning it, it still remains a problem.  At first it was just a little annoying, fixed by clicking the mouse or pressing the top internet button, but now it's REALLY annoying, even popping up as I write this post. Is "slider thing" the right term?

Lenovo Z400 P/Y/Z Series :: When Battery Charges Until 60% / Does It Internally Disconnect Charger From Battery

Jan 30, 2014

I would like to ask about the Lenovo Energy Management software bundled with my Z400. Regarding the Energy Management > Battery > "Optimized Battery Health" in particular. When the battery charges until 60%, does it internally disconnect the charger from my battery? The Power icon in the System Tray says "Plugged in, not charging". Or does the software stops the charging until 60%, and when it lowers the software allows it  to recharge again? I'm worried about getting my battery worn out immediately, as I leave my charger plugged in most of the time.

Is there more to this than just needing a laptop cooler?

Dell :: XPS M1530

Dec 29, 2008

I had made the mistake of lending my XPS m1530 to a friend who is in the hospital due to cancer and she gave it back all messed up.

Most everything don't work. I can't get online, a lot of programs don't work, such as trying to right or left click in the taskbar and other places... nothing happens.

I tried system restore to before she got the computer and nothing changes.
I've ran AVG and spy bot and it found some stuff, supposedly fix them, but the problems remain. I defragged too.

So what to try next? Reformat? I don't want to if I don't have to.

Dell :: M1530 Is Hot...

Jul 9, 2009

So I'm having heat issues with my m1530...but that seems to be the norm.

So I've got a Dell tech coming out to replace the mobo & fan/ heatsink.

Do you guys know if the Dell tech will remove the old thermal paste, and use some AS5 (provided by me of course) instead of the crappy Dell thermal paste?

If not, when would be the best time for me to do it? Right away, or should I let the thermal paste set before I remove, and replace it?

Dell :: M1530 RAM: 3GB Or 4GB

Dec 27, 2007

I'm getting ready to order a new m1530, but can't decide on Ram options. I know with 32-bit Vista, it only recognizes ~3.2GB of RAM, so would the benefit of 3.2GB Dual Channel be worth the upgrade from 3GB non-DC?

Has anyone noticed any problems with Aero when using non-DC?

Oct 24, 2009

I've just gone to install win 7 when I ran into a big thread about m1530 and x64 win7 here on the forum (in which there's no answer to this question).

I am interested what the differences are between x64 and x86 Windows 7 on m1530(i.e. in stability, performance, driver availability, else...).

My configuration is:
Intel core2duo 2.1GHz T8100
4 GB ram

GeForce 8600 GT
Intel 82801HEM/HBM SATA AHCI controller - says device manager (500GB hdd)

Dell :: M1530 LED Kit

Jan 5, 2010

Building an M1530 from parts and got the LED screen, Chimei part number N154C6-L02 with cable N849D.

Here is the problem; looking at the cable there is a connection for what could be an inverter/converter but I cannot find a part number from Dell or anywhere else.

Does anyone know what part this is and where I can get one? Is it the same as other Dell models with the WSXGA+ LED?

Dell :: M1530

Apr 12, 2009

I have an XPS M1530 that's just shy of 6 months old.

Over the past 3-odd months I have begun to notice some things that I REALLY dislike about this laptop.

1. It gets UNBEARABLY hot. I'm afraid I might not be able to have kids if I use it as intended (ie: on my lap)

2. It can't play TF2, CSS or HL2 at all low settings. That's ridiculous. I suspect that may have something to do with the poor thermals.

3. Its battery life is ridiculously short. Not much of a problem in everyday life, but something that really gets to me on those >6 hour intercontinental flights.

4. The Fingerprint Application (psqltray.exe) seems to dislike Vista x64. I've caught it using up to 1,000,000K of memory.

5. The internals are of TERRIBLE quality. The heatsink offers no reassurance about thermal performance whatsoever.

6. Dell tech support is beyond incompetent. I do believe my 11-year old sister knows more about hardware problems than the 2 people I spoke to.

Can I call Dell over for a physical inspection of the laptop? I divide my time between India and Los Angeles, but most of my time is spent in LA and the laptop was bought here.

Dell :: Some Changes In XPS M1530

Dec 19, 2008

i had a XPS M1530 since Jan,2008(When first release). couple of weeks ago when there was an issue with my media buttons dell decided to change the whole system as they were not been able to fix it.

actually the light(Blue surroundings lights when once touched the media buttons) was not as brighter as they were suppose to b. when i first bought the system these lights were really brighter. but a month ago when the buttons were not working properly dell replace the whole Media Hinges Cover. i found the lights really deemed. then they again changes the hinge cover. but still the same. third times they changed the mother board, but nothing fixes the problem, i mean every times it's deemed media buttons. so they changed my whole system.

the new XPS M1530(replacement) i have received a couple of weeks. but u know guys, i was surprised to see that these media buttons r also deemed. and it was assembled in Poland where the old one was in Ireland. also i have found another changes that is, the screen light is much more brighter. something like Blueish. i don't know if it is good or bad. one of my house mate has got his old xps m1530. so i did compare just putting his one right next to my system.
they also changed hdd. my previous one was Fujitsu and this one they have put Hitachi. this hdd make little noise than previous one.

i could complain to dell and keep replacing the parts but i didn't, u know guys why, bcz this new system came along with Processor 2.5Ghz where my previous one was 2.2Ghz.

Dell :: 8 Gb On Xps M1530, With A11

I now have 8 gb of ram on my xps m1530 using the A11 bios update.

I want to thank Rhodan for the idea and the original poster of the A13 bios for m1330 thread. I downloaded the a11 update and installed it. I then installed my other 4 gb sodimm and bios recognized it and windows recognizes it. this is awesome.

Kudos to Dell for listening to its ideastorm ideas and implementing the ones that really matter to us users.

Dell :: Xps M1530, Fan

Jun 14, 2009

So I've had my laptop a year and a half and it has always gotten very hot to the touch. Right now it is at 60 degrees C. Earlier it was up to 68 I believe. Is this normal? Also I don't ever hear a fan on and I'm not sure if it even works. Is there anyway to test this? Or am I overreacting to the temperature?

Dell ::About XPS M1530

May 29, 2009

Can any dell xps m1530 take 8G of memory? I see on line that you have the option to pick 2 to 4 or 4 to 8.

but if you pick the config with 4 gigs it list 4g the highest. but you can do config 8gigs and get 4, 6,8g options.

does it require a different motherboard or will a one year old 1530 work with 8gigs?
