Dell :: Xps M1330 Bootup

Jan 21, 2010

When I turn on the laptop, it says something about checking some files (the first is NSTF files, and the second is OS files) and that it recommend that I do it but it would let me skip it also.

I would do both, skip and let it continue, but both would end up having a blank screen afterward. It was working fine before ....

Dell :: My Studio 15 Screamed At Bootup

Nov 28, 2008

I started my studio this morning and went away to do other things while it's booting... then I heard "scream" from my room and it took me a second to realize that it's from this brand new machine! Even my 3 years old laptop that has a really low level celeron processor and very little memory and is slow as hell has never done this in the past 3 years! So I ran in my room and checked what's going on. The scream already stopped but there's this blue screen asking me if I wanted to continue to boot to windows or do memory diagnosis So I hit the memory diagnosis and it took the thing forever to finish it. Then it went on to boot windows with a memory diagnosis report saying no error in memory was detected. Ok. That overall was kinda scary, especially considering I've only owned this thing for less than 5 days. :S I tried to think about what I did last night that may cause this... but I did normal surfing and video streaming and... then I downloaded firefox and installed the adobe flash player and I deleted a couple useless application that came with MSN. That's it.

So here's my question:

1. Has anyone else had this happened...?

2. Does this sound more like a software problem or hardware problem? Software problem, I can handle. Hardware problem, then it's a real problem.

Dell :: 1645 Screen Does Not Come On During Bootup

Mar 21, 2010

I'm having this problem at the moment where *sometimes* the screen does not come on during bootup. "The lights are on, yet no-one is home".

If I'm lucky I will see the Dell splash screen and then it goes black but most of the time I get nothing. Strange thing is that the lights are on for the buttons (volume, play, etc) but the screen is not.

I know its not a Windows problem, because I can here the Windows startup sound being played. Its almost like the signal to turn the screen on is not working.

Dell :: M90 Show The Windows Sign On Bootup And Go Black After That

Mar 9, 2009

I have an M90 and it was good for the first two years and about 7 months ago it started to heat even when I wasn't playing games.

A lot of times it would shut off by itself. I now realize that it might be the dust bunnies that needed cleaning.

Thank you dell for pointing that out(sarcasm).... Now my lappy will only show the windows sign on bootup and go black after that.

Is my motherboard out also or just my graphics card? I'm hoping that I can put in a 7900gs after seeing the prices for a fx2500m .....

Dell Inspiron M150R :: CPU Fan Spins At Bootup For 2 Seconds Then Switches Off

Mar 8, 2013

My dell laptop (M501R) suffered a Blue Screen and wouldn't reload windows.  Eventually, I just re-installed windows (re-formatting the hard drive) but everything was running slowly after about a minute or two of running windows.  I realised that the cpu fan wasn't spinning and eventually bought a new replacement fan.  I changed the fan over but I still have the same problem.

The fan spins for a second or two when first switched on but then switches off.  I updated the bios and as soon as the bios program began updating the bios, the fan kicked in at full speed until the bios was finished updating and then switched off again.

I've ran the Dell diagnostics program and the only faults picked up are related to the hard drive, something to do with SMART.

Acer TravelMate P653 :: Noisy Fan On Bootup

Jan 5, 2015

I didn't use my laptop over Christmas as I was away. It was left plugged into the mains but powered down.
The first time I booted it after my return the fan suddenly started up when the Starting Windows message appeared. It then remained at near maximum speed long after everything had loaded. This has never happened before.
I have managed to workaround this by pressing Fn + F4 which places the laptop in sleep mode. After several seconds the fan powers down.
If I then press a key to wake the laptop up everything is fine and the fan doesn't run at high speed. I can hear it gently running in the background.
For the remainder of that session the fan behaves itself. But when I start the laptop up from cold the whole process starts again and I have to repeat the actions to turn it off.
I'm mystified why it's doing this. I have uninstalled and reinstalled Acer ePower Management v6.0 via the eRecovery Management utility but it has made no difference.
I've also checked the BIOS (F2 at bootup) and can see nothing there that influences the fan speed.

Acer :: Aspire 5610-4179 Slow On Bootup

Apr 7, 2009

Have a AS5610 and recently it is dog slow on bootup (8 Mins until the computer is usable). Have removed hard drive and scanned it with several malware scanners, tested the hard drive for physical problems as well as running memtest on the memory. None showed any problems.

Have run msconfig and disabled everything and that allowed a usual computer after 4 mins.

I ran a shareware util called BootLog XP and it appears to indicate that LVPRICINJ.DLL is running for 509 secs of a normal bootup. This is the logitech video camera driver. I was thinking of uninstalling the Orbitcam software and drivers but can not find the current drivers on the Acer (N America) site.

Dell Vostro 3700 :: Deletes Files From USB Thumb Drive - Bootup Stops Or Freezes

Mar 19, 2013

I've created a MSDOS boot disk on a USB thumb drive for a legacy application. After selecting F12 and booting from the USB thumb drive, the bootup stops or freezes. I'll power off the machine, boot back  into windows, and try to read the USB drive. One of two things happen,

A. the drive is corrupted with gobbeldy characters or won recognize at all, or
B. files will be deleted, autoexec.bat, config.sys,

There is no rhyme or reason, I've replicated this 20 times and got different results. I've used 5 different drives, two of which are brand new.  Sometimes the laptop will freeze with a solid loud beep. I just was able to find an identical 3700 to test, and the same things are happening.

I've been able to boot this on over 20 different laptops, all core 2 duos, but moving to the core i3 on this 3700, this happens. Unfortunately I have no other newer machine to test this on, although it booted from a 3 month old compaq with an AMD chipset.

I've disabled/enabled the execution bit in bios, other than that what's causing this, I've never seen a BIOS do anything like this before.

Acer :: Extensa 7220 Loud Beep At Bootup, Then Normal

Sep 14, 2009

extensa 7220 laptop.

When turned on it goes past the Acer logo screen then a blinking cursor shows at top left of a black screen & what I can only describe as either a very loud continuous beep or audible alarm sounds for up to 3/4 mins then the pc will continue to boot into Vista & work normally.

I've run utilities like HDtune to check the hard disk - it says its fine, I'm going to run memtest for the memory, I've read about the phoenix bios codes but it doesn;t sound like any of the sequences.

Lappy is 1yr old in three days time :-(

Dell :: Inspiron 9300 No Brightness Control/white Screen At Bootup After Graphics Card Change

Jan 8, 2010

I have Inspiron 9300. Unfortunately, my geforce 6800 died and I bought as a replacement x300 which was installed by a laptop repair service (they fixed other thins too.

It was due to power surge). Everything works but when I boot up the computer or when the display is set to be turned off in the power settings in Windows instead of being actually turned off the display is on and is all white.

Also brightness regulation does not work via Fn +arrows keys and is set to maximum and the white color is so intense that I get a headache after a couple of hours staring at the screen.

HP Pavilion DV7-6000 :: Error Message On Bootup Product Information Not Valid

Oct 2, 2014

I didn't realize that my motherboard was bad from the factory.  From the very first day I was unable to do a full factory restore.  I would always have to send it in to HP.  I was sent a motherboard and after installing it I was able to do a full factory restore.  It was amazing... However, I now have this error message on bootup.  What exactly does this mean?
When I go into the BIOS, All the information about the system is xxxxxxx. When I go into HP support assistance. The product name, serial number, and product number is  yyyyyyyy.  I know this is wrong, why?

Dell :: M1330 On Its Way Out?

Oct 12, 2009

Lately my laptop would freeze and I could see faint white lines only at the top of my screen. (lines do not go all the way down) This has happened twice in a day. Ctrl Alt Del doesn't work so I have to power down the system and it runs normal after that.

I'm really afraid its the dreaded vertical lines issues. I had my mobo + GPU replaced a year ago, still under CC warranty but its such a pain.

Dell :: What Should I Do With My Old M1330?

Nov 30, 2009

I've had my M1330 for about 1 1/2 yrs now. The first issue is that at one point 3 months ago,

I was being randomly electrocuted by my laptop when I placed my hand on the open space below the keyboard. About a few days after the random electrocution started, the battery died, and won't recharge at all.

Lastly, there is a constant whistling sound that was coming from the laptop ever since I bought it.

I'm out of warranty. Am I able to buy a new warranty for my laptop at this time or is it too late for me? And if it is too late, should I attempt to make repairs through Dell, or am I better off selling the laptop,

and then use the cash towards a lower pc, like those mini/EPC's that these companies are selling now?

Dell :: 8GB In XPS M1330

Feb 11, 2009

Does anyone know if I can install 8 GB of RAM in my M1330? I now have 4 GB, but when upgrading to 64-bit I'd also like to add some memory.

I bought the computer in August 2008, and have the latest bios.

I think 800 MHz is the max speed I can use, does anyone know about any modules that will fit, if possible

Dell :: Should I Keep New M1330

Dec 2, 2008

I have a new XPS M1330 on the way. I originally purchased a refurb. M1330 and had a few issues with it and dell agreed to build me a new(non refurb) one with same specs. (crimson,T9500,LED display,4GB's ram,vista ultimate etc.). In the meantime my company has ordered us new latitudes and I don't really see need to keep the new 1330. My question is, when it arrives should I not even open it and sell it either here or E-bay and my second question would be how much could I expect to sell it for ?

Dell :: Own A M1330

Jun 1, 2008

My 1330 is my second XPS after owning the Origional 9100XPS tank.

I have the fully built M1330 with the best factory options Dell offers. Running Windows Home Premium.

I was very pleased with my PC however, I didn't like all these extra features taking up room. (Media Center, Back-up HD, ect)

So, after a little thought, I did a complete format of my HD. I removed all the other Partitions and only loaded the OS.

After doing the updates, re-installing my McAfee Suite, Office 2007 and the other basics; This computer is NIGHT and DAY compared to what it was.
It was never a slouch by any means but I can't even explain how much better it runs now.

For anyone that doesn't need the silly stuff. I HIGHLY suggest you take the time to clean sweep your HD and reinstall from scratch.
