Dell Studio 1749 :: Extended Battery Life Gone

Jan 6, 2012

I had to reset my Studio 1749 to factory defaults and now the option for "Dell Extended Battery Life" within the Dell Battery Meter is gone. I don't know what needs to be reinstalled in order to get it back.

These are the changes that might affect the issue:

- Installed a different WiFi-Card (Dell 1520)- Installed a different Tuner Card (Yuan, provided by Dell)- Installed Service Pack 1 for Windows 7- Flashed BIOS to A08- Updated all Drivers and Utilities from the Dell Homepage except for the ATI-Driver

I think it is a useful tool if you use your notebook on battery, because it is able to control a few options that are not available in Windows 7 default power plans.

Dell :: 1530 Battery Life

Oct 8, 2008

Ive always gotten, well, not so much battery life out of my machine. However, today Ive realized it might be a problem with it, rather than how it is meant to work. Today I put a DVD (AC/DC live!), plugged an hdmi cable into my tv, and it died half way the 2 hour concert. All my laptop was doing was working as a dvd, so, I figure something must be wrong.

Dell :: XPS 13 "Extended Battery Life" Option In The Advanced Power Options?

Apr 12, 2009

#1 - What is the "Dell Extended Battery Life" option in the advanced power options? What does it do? The help article just says that extends the battery life.

#2 - With the facial recognition software, is there any way to take multiple "logon" images for the same user? Like sometimes I have the laptop on my lap

and sometimes it is on my desk and sometimes it is on the side so I can use with my external monitor and it seems like it won't log me in automatically unless I am in the exact position as when I enrolled it.

I'm looking to add more battery life to my laptop by going with a 9-cell. I'm just wondering if there's a market for the 6-cell battery.

If not, I'll just stay with the 6-cell.

Dell :: XPS 1530 Graphic Card Extended Warranty

Jan 5, 2009

This has been discussed in a few threads but I cannot find anything on dell website.

I tried the chat and the rep I talked to played dumb with me, saying he never heard of any problem with the graphic cards.

Could you guys tell me how I can figure out if the graphic card does have an extended warranty? Will I get any documentation mentioning it

Dell :: Sleeve For Studio 15 With Extended Battery?

Dec 5, 2009

My aunt has the same laptop as I, and I have her name in our family drawing for Xmas... and she's wanting a nice sleeve.

She already has a laptop bag, she just wants something smaller for a quick "up and go" where she doesn't need her accessories, charger, etc.

I've looked at a few and I think they'd be close -- it's just that the extended battery makes the back end awful thick, which worries me.

Soooo I was wondering if anyone has actually purchased or used a sleeve with their Studio 15 with the extended battery, and if so which brand/model.

For those in the UK/Europe who ordered CTOs with the extended battery...

Did the extended battery come attached to the laptop in the box in place of the standard one, or is it sent separately, in addition to getting the standard one

Sony :: Extended Battery Sticks Out

Jan 21, 2009

Why is it that the sony extended batteries come out from the bottom of the laptop(the z-axis) instead of out the back(y-axis), I kinda feel the Lenovo approach towards extended battery makes a lot more sense...

I've been using adium for sending messages to cells because MSN doesn't support it in OSX and my cell account only has 200 to it and I won't pay anymore for it, the reason I don't like adium is because I keep getting people sending me messages that I don't know and I try to block them but they keep coming, So is there another messenger app that I could use in OSX for SMS's

Dell :: XPS Keyboard And Battery Life

May 23, 2009

I have Dell XPS 1530 and I have 2 problems,

1 Keyboard. When I type cursor seems to jump around a lot. I would be typing and suddenly the cursor is in the middle of the previous sentence and its a mess. Is that something common, is that me or is that something I need to call Dell?

2 Battery life is extremely short. I hear of such thing as deactivating your video card ( I have GeForce 8600 GT) and that supposedly helps you with the battery life. Does this laptop offer such opportunity?

Dell :: Studio XPS 13 Battery Life

Apr 16, 2009

Why is the Studio XPS 13 so terrible on battery life? ~2.5 hours on power saving mode, 1 on high-performance. I believe the Sony Z rates around 3-5 hours on power saving, as does the Latitude 6400. Is it normal to have this low of a battery life for a 13.3"?

What is draining all the power? How does the Z pull 4-5 hours on its battery life?

I don't want to shell out for a 9-cell and also have to deal with the added weight... but this is ridiculous.

Also, are there any new deals for the 9-cell batteries?

Dell :: Optimizing I7 Battery Life

Nov 30, 2009

Here a bit of summary of how to enable some advance power plan settings, the highlights are disabling the core parking override and max % of unparked cores.

-Windows by defaults keeps at least one logical core active per physical processor core. With the nehalem architecture parked cores consume almost no power.
-Also keep in mind if you set max unparked cores to 50% it may still activate all cores because 50% of 8 hyperthreaded cores is 4.
-You can use resource monitor to see if cores are parking
-once you've done the registry tweaks below you should have some extra options in your advanced power plan settings
-Setting you power plan back to defaults nulls you the changes to it is harmless and reversable if you are careful
-If you are not comfortable making registry changes don't do this as you can really screw your computer up, if you mess up the wrong things in your registry

Open Regedit (type regedit into the startmenu search box)

Expand location to:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESYSTEMCurrentControlSetControlPowerPowerSettings54533251-82be-4824-96c1-47b60b740d00

In order to enable some advanced power plan settings you will have to rename the REG_DWORD "Attributes" to "_Attributes". This one it own does not change how your computer runs, it simply adds an extra option into your advanced settings for each power plan

Here are the relevant registry keys:
0cc5b647-c1df-4637-891a-dec35c318583
lets you set the minimum number of unparked cores (I set this to 25% for power saver)

3b04d4fd-1cc7-4f23-ab1c-d1337819c4bb
turns on additional processor throttle states, caution this throttled my laptop to the point that it was almost unusable you can change the attribute to _attribute but leave the power plan setting disabled.

447235c7-6a8d-4cc0-8e24-9eaf70b96e2b
Sets the processor power state when parked, I think the default is ok

5d76a2ca-e8c0-402f-a133-2158492d58ad
Option to Disable processor idle states, not really relevant on a laptop

a55612aa-f624-42c6-a443-7397d064c04f
Processor core parking override, this one is key, it you don't disable this in your power plan settings you will only park "virtual" cores

ea062031-0e34-4ff1-9b6d-eb1059334028
Maximum number of unparked cores, this is useful to put your computer into "dual core mode" in power saver if you set this to 25% or 50%

Dell :: Battery Charger Life

My battery charger doesn't charge and the blue light isn't turning on.

Is it safe to assume that it is dead?

Are there any tests I can do to verify if that's the case?

I've had it for a year and 3 months, is that the typical life of a battery charger?

Dell :: Save Battery Life

Dec 31, 2008

i like having my m1530 on my lap (unplugged) in the living room while i watch tv/babysit so far i can only make it last 2 hours at the most(surfing the web,messengers) with the brightness 30% and powersaver mode.

well i was reading on the thread on how to underclock your cpu...theres a problem with that:

-numero first im too lazy (hurts my head when i try to understand the thread,hence the "[ADVANCE]" on the title ^^")

-numero dos having a t5450 on power saver mode (50% max perfomance) is slow enough... so i tried to look for a better solution and found this...

[url]

i think its great...my battery up to 2 hours and 20-ish minutes.

i think vista users should give it a try

Dell :: Vostro V13 / Battery Life

Mar 4, 2010

I'm looking for a new laptop for school/work, and so far I think the Vostro V13 seems good. What do you think?

[url]

Anyway, my only concern is that it only has four hours of battery life. However, it does come with a 7200 RPM hard drive, which seems like that would eat a lot of battery life compared to a 5400 RPM hard drive or an SSD. Well, I have an extra 80 GB SSD in my old laptop, so my questions are...

How much (if any) battery life do you think I would gain by replacing the 7200 RPM hard drive with the SSD?

Also... Would you recommend the Vostro V13, or is there another laptop that you would recommend for school?

My XPS M1530 is a beast, but it's starting to get worn out and it just isn't convenient enough to bring to classes all day. Netbooks are too small for my hands (and eyes!). I really do prefer big screens, but I suppose I must compromise for the sake of mobility/convenience, so hopefully I'll be able to get used to the 13.3" screen.
