I'm using 22.214.171.124 with my 1340 because the newer ones haven't worked. Next, navigate to the Device Settings tab, and click Settings. From there, the fun begins.
Go to Application Gestures, "Three Fingers Down," and select Configure. At that point, you'll need this command:
%windir%System32 undll32.exe dwmapi.dll #105
Copy that, select "Add" and paste it into the command text box. Name it Flip 3D or whatever you want, and select OK, OK, and click Apply. Now, make sure you have Three Finger Flick enabled. This will let you scroll between the applications that are running in Flip 3D. Once you get the hang of it, it's a very cool and easy way to get around. You know, or not. Whatever.
I was having problems keeping the IE page fully maximised each time I opened a new page.
To correct this, I would expand the borders of the page to the size I wanted by clicking and dragging them. Then not exiting the page by clicking on the "X", but by going to main menu and selecting File then "Exit". This system had worked with XP IE and also with Vista IE but did not work for Win 7 IE.
This works: Right click on Desktop IE icon, select Properties.
In the window that opens, the "Target" is highlighted. Delete that and insert "C:Program FilesInternet Exploreriexplore.exe". Insert the quotes as well.
Looking for some help here and don't know where to turn.
My M1530 fell, it worked for a while, but then it crashed. On Vista startup, it will bluescreen with either an UNMOUNTABLE_BOOT_VOLUME or that IRQL_IS_LESS_THAN_OR_EQUAL (something like that anyway) error.
Dell's diagnostic tests gave an error on the Hard Drive DST Short Test of 2000-0142. Dell says that means a broken hard drive and they are sending a replacement.
I tried putting the M1530's hard drive into a Latitude D620, and it booted! Slowly, but it booted. I was able to see the drive and use it for a good 12 hours before I shut it down.
My 15Z touchscreen works intermittently. It will be working just fine, then it starts to take a second to respond. Then it stops responding at all. Then it starts working again. I cannot identify any pattern to it.
Shouldn't I be able to simply press and release the power button to power on the laptop for a cold boot?
I'm not sure if I'm powering on my M3800 properly or if it's a problem.
All scenarios are after the laptop had been completely shut down and powered cable attached.
(1) Just pressing and releasing the power key powers it up sometimes (2) When 1 doesn't work, sometimes pressing and holding the power key (for ? secs) will power it up (3) When neither 1 nor 2 will work, sometimes double-pressing the power key will power it up
The times it doesn't power up, the power button lights, keyboard lights and goes off, then power light goes off.
It eventually always powers up (so far) but would like to make sure it's not a hardware problem.

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
I have a latitude 3540 . Recently I installed windows 8.1 64 bit on it. All the drivers works except the WiFi. When I am trying to install it its showing a message "The installer cannot run on this platform. Pls select the package for your operating system". I tried both older newer versions of the driver package downloaded from dell website.
My keyboard has intermittently been working for some time. When it works, then everything works as it should, when it does not work, the keyboard is still lit up and the mouse joystick still works, but no keys work. To get the keyboard to work again I have to reboot and shutdown many times and eventually it will work again. It only stops working after shutting down or rebooting. To me it appears to be an issue with detecting at boot up. It seems it could be either an issue with the motherboard, or the keyboard so was or to get some opinions on how to narrow it down to one or the other. I should also add, that when it does not work, you can not access the bios, or anything prior to the operating system loading, so I am 100% sure its not an OS issue. I also dual boot this laptop and the keyboard does not work in either. I can plug in a usb and that works fine.
Dell Latitude E6400 ATG mouse pad works intermittently. It will work then stop and I have to use the keyboard nub. Then it will work. Then it will not work and it will drift to one corner. If I press on either side of the mousepad wrist rest area it will drift faster.
This is why I think it is a hardware issue.
I have updated with the most recent driver several times and it does not correct the problem. Driver is dated 1/13/2011
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)...
Unfortunately a new divide has opened up, that between those of us who know enough about our computers to look under the bonnet from time to time and those who use them without any real curiosity or awareness.
The results could be far worse than being ripped off by unscrupulous engineers who offer them unnecessary upgrades, because these digital tools will increasingly shape society.
Have a weird problem and just wanted some advice on what to do next, before sending in my laptop to dell..
My laptop speakers wont output any sound whatsoever. While i can hear those very same sounds via headphone jack/hdmi.. No music, windows system sounds etc via the speakers, but can hear them via headphone/hdmi..
I have installed and updated the latest drivers.. Reformatted and reinstalled operating system (windows 7 home 64 bit), yet no results..
While I am convinced that it could be a hardware problem, I was wondering if you guys could suggest any more tests/things to do..
I noticed last week that the back light option on my keyboard no longer functions.I know the Fn key works on the keyboard as I can perform other Fn+ tasks and I know that the right arrow key (which is the same combo key that controls back-lighting) also functions on it's own.
Aside from normal Windows 7 updates, the only changes to my laptop recently has been flashing to the A07 bios and the new power supply mailed out by Dell.Am I missing a software option somewhere that defaults my back-lighting to off? Or is it a mistake (or intention) of the A07 bios to disable this feature given the recent power supply throttle issues with this model laptop.
