Dell Latitude E5480 MDT Deployment Fails

Question: Dell Latitude E5480 MDT Deployment Fails

Hi All
New to the community so apologies if this is in the wrong place. My organisation uses Dell latitudes as there defacto std and we have been issuing E5470's with Win 7 Pro x64 with no real issues, however, have received the latest E5480 as our std device and are facing the problem below.
I use MDT (8443) and WinPE 10 for deploying images and cannot complete the deployment for the 5480 with the old message cannot connect to the deployment share missing NIC driver. I have the latest driver CAB file from Dell, I've tried injecting Win10 NIC drivers into WinPE, downloaded direct from Intel latest drivers etc....Same error
I've put a pause in the litetouch script in case it's the issue with faster ssd's etc all to no avail,was wondering if anyone can throw some ideas my way?
Kind Regards

Answer: Dell Latitude E5480 MDT Deployment Fails

What CPU do these have? If they're 6-th generation (Intel Skylake, 6xxx), WIndows 7 will be fine.
If they're 7th generation (Kaby Lake, 7xxx), there is no support for anything older than Windows 10.

Hello

We use MDT, Microsoft Deployment Toolkit, To deploy windows 7 and windows 8.1 images to our latitude laptops.
the Control Vault driver is not installing as part of the cab file that has been imported into MDT, there for I have to install it as an post install application.
the switches for the control vault by typing "/?" are shown as /s /f.
the driver installs fine if I run it on a laptop by opening command prompt and the silent install switches but it will fail when MDT tries to run the same command during deployment.
Has ayone had this problem and how have you fixed it?
Thanks

Hey guys.
Pretty much what the title says - Dell's new, recently-released ControlVault driver (version A19) does not successfully install on a Dell Latitude E6330.  I followed the driver installation order from the "Dell Business Client Re-Image 'How-To' Guide" and installed the Dell ControlVault driver last.  It did not work.
Attached is a screenshot of what I got, and the Windows Installer log.

Hey all. 
I've got a Dell Latitude E6320 where the driver installer for the Dell Wireless 1530 wireless card fails.  I'm running Windows 7 64-bit, the computer boots in UEFI mode, and I've installed all of the drivers according to the Latitude E-Family Re-Image Guide.

I have the model laptop above which when I have installed win 8.1 and try to install Intel and AMD display drivers, will fail to display after a restart or wake from standby. I can tell that the laptop is on and the mouse icon will show but it will fail to display. I can use it as is without the display drivers but as i need to connect my second screen via VGA or HDMI it will not be possible as it needs the enhanced drivers.
Please help.

Answer:Dell Latitude E6440 fails to display after installing drivers

I met with the same problem too. I got into system from safe mode, and remove these new drives I installed, and then my laptop got to normal display. If you can?t remove the new installed drives, try to restore your laptop to the previous point before these drives are installed.

Wondering if anyone has had video issues with Dell docks? My Latitude E7450 is "unsupported" by Dell, however...works great in Windows 10 with this (glaring) exception.

I have removed the filler plate from the dock, plugged in HDMI and a mini display port directly to the back of the laptop. Been running 4k resolution on both monitors this way all day. If I try to use the dock, no dice. I can see the video card detected/losing one of the 2 monitors over and over.

Nvidia version is 353.30

E7470 laptop was running fine on BIOS 1.12.3 but received security advisory concerning AMT vulnerability.
BIOS 1.15.4 was just released to address concerns for security advisory CVE-2017-5689 / INTEL-SA-00075.  Applied BIOS revision to the E7470, but after applying it continued to prompt for Bitlocker code after each restart.  Unable to successfully leave Bitlocker protectors on without being prompted for code after each reboot so opted for reimage.
Ran through process of reimaging computer via MDT, but now receive error in smsts logs:
'ProtectKeyWithTPM' failed (2150694914)
Failed to enable key protectors (0x80310002)
Failed to run the action: Enable BitLocker. The BIOS did not correctly communicate with the Trusted Platform Module (TPM). Contact the computer manufacturer for BIOS upgrade instructions. (Error: 80310002; Source: Windows)
Can someone please confirm issue with this latest BIOS and will need Dell to re-evaluate.

Hello all:
A couple of weeks ago I received a 7270 for deployment testing. My company currently runs SCCM 2012 SP1 (not R2/no CU's) with the ADK for Windows 8.0 and we deploy to a variety of Dell laptops including the 7240 and 7250. When I tried to boot the 7270 using our existing boot media it did not detect the network adapter.
I downloaded the latest WinPE driver pack from Dell, injected the drivers into our boot image, and still no luck. I then created a WinPE using the ADK for Windows 10. Booting from this image also resulted in the network adapter not being detected, but when I injected the Dell WinPE drivers manually it finally showed network connectivity.
Figuring the necessary network driver is definitely in the WinPE driver pack from Dell, I have tried several different tests to get the driver into our boot image for OSD to no avail.
Is anyone else testing the 7270 and having any luck?

Answer:Deployment issue with Latitude E7270 from SCCM 2012 OSD

Hi,
http://support.lenovo.com/us/en/downloads/ds105362
We have SCCM 2012 R2. I was working on E7470 the other day and the I219-LM drivers found from Lenovo did the trick for both E7470 & 7270 models. Just import them, and add to your boot image.
It should be under here after you extracted the executable: C:\yada...\PRO1000\Winx64\. The NDIS62 and 65 folders in particular helped to get me going. (win7x64 and win10x64) 
Though, there is still lots of work to be done to image these 2 guys w/o errors...Dell+MS...Sigh.
Good luck.

Hi,
We are trying to install Windows 7 x64 on a Latitude E7470 with SCCM 2012 R2. We downloaded the CAB from Dell (en.community.dell.com/.../11830.latitude-e7470-windows-7-driver-pack) and created a driver package from this like we always do.
The TS fails right after the drivers for the system has been applied. When I press F8 and type IP config I see that it is getting a 169.x.x.x IP address. If I try to renew the address with "ipconfig /renew" it updates to a valid IP. I tried to add this to the TS and now it fails when the applications are about to be installed (error 0x80004005/unknown error). If I check the IP now it shows a valid IP.
We have no issues with all other Dell models we are installing.
I have tried with two different E7470's to check if it was faulty hardware but it is the same on both machines.
Anyone else having trouble with this model?

Answer:Deployment issue with Latitude E7470 from SCCM 2012 OSD

Update:
I used a driver grabber software (ConfigMgrDriverGrabber) to grab the drivers from one of the preinstalled E7470's. Then I imported those to a new driver package and it works now.
Something is wrong with the driver pack from Dell but I don't know what...

hello i have both these laptops well i have bought a e6420 for my girlfriend as the other one she has is crap.well i have read that these e6420 get warm and well i found out they come with one pipe heatsink well i heard u can upgrade the heatsink to a 2 pipe one.(DUAL HEATPIPE heatsink DELL P/N - TYP01) i was wondering what else do i need to do this as when i get this laptop its second hand i7 pro in it 2.8ghz im going to clean it out and put new paste on it put i hear people are on about this copper shim to put on it.can this be done and well can i upgrade my dell latitude e6430 i5 pro 2.6ghz heatsink with the double heatsink as i know that one only comes with one pipe.love you guys info if you guys can help me would be class thanks

i got this info here GPU Temperature 103C on Latitude E6420 - General Hardware - Laptop - Dell Community

Answer:Dell latitude e6430 and dell latitude e6420

Joseph mate best leave as is after all it was made to function as it came. Now for the compound and copper shim personally I would not bother with the copper shim I can see no good reason for it the dual pipe again if it was made to work with one pipe then leave alone.

It is better if you renew the compound using a decent cleaner and compound and I can recommend these for that job

Arctic Silver Incorporated - ArctiClean for thorough cleaning and preparation and Arctic Silver Incorporated - Arctic Silver 5 for the compound.

Now it depends on who you listen to but I always use these products and after the old compound is thoroughly cleaned off and the surfaces prepped I spread the compound very thinly and across the both entire surface of the CPU and the heatsink with my finger inside a vinyl or latex glove and then place a rice grain sized piece of compound on the CPU and replace the heatsink. If you touch the surfaces after clean and prep then redo it.

While you are in there do make sure the fan and the radiator are really spotless and I sometimes relube the fan bearings to make sure the fan is running at full tilt when needed.

Hello!
We have during the last autumn bought 3 Dell Latitude 7275 2in1  which comes with the "Dell Latitude 12 Premier Keyboard"
On all of these we experience a very annoying issue.
When connected to the keyboard it behaves very unstable and frequently looses contact with the 7275 just by a light touch and does not work at all, the users have to be very picky in which angle they have the 7275 connected and use it for the keyboard to work at all.
We have spoken to Dell support last week and they say the are not aware of this at all.
We can´t believe this is "by design" and thus we wonder if anyone else have the same issues here ?
And if so have managed to solve it somehow and can share the solution.

Hello,

Having an interesting one.

Deploying a Windows 10 custom image using WDS/MDT.

Using a Dell XPS 13 9350 and the Dell USB 3.0 Ethernet adapter.

I'm able to boot to PXE, load Boot.wim to access my MDT task sequence, which then starts without issue.

The OS is installed, drivers are loaded, then it reboots to boot into Windows and complete the task sequence.

Once its booted into windows 10, the USB network adapter fails to initialize, shows that its failed installation in the device manager even though the device shows as having the correct driver. Unplugging and plugging the adapter back in allows the usb network adapter install and then I'm able to continue the task sequence which has another 2 reboots but doesn't have the issue again.

I've verified the correct nic drivers are being injected for the adapter but it just fails.

Log shows that its failing to load the driver for the usb nic.

This whole process works fine on other hardware I am using. I'm not seeing any driver conflict at all.

Thoughts? Recommendations?

Getting the message after Sysprep stating "Sysprep Fails After Deployment With: Windows could not finish configuring the system...."

This is a new out-of-box Lenovo T530 laptop, it came pre-loaded with Windows 7 Pro.

I pulled laptop from box and inserted our Windows 7 Pro SP 1 disk and installed our copy. I then configured all settings and applications under "audit mode", created an "Unattend.xml" file using the WSIM, and copied that file into the Sysprep folder and ran "Sysprep /shutdown /oobe /generalize /unattend:unattend.xml"

The error message appears after I image drive using Ghost GSS 11.5.1.2266. (I'm assuming the error would appear after boot-up regardless of imaging the machine)

I have read numerous articles regarding this error and have also disabled the "Windows Media Player Network Sharing Service" as suggested by many. I'm also assuming that the "Hotfix" for this issue does not apply since I am installing SP1.

I am able to boot into the machine after attempting to boot into "safe mode" first (as suggested by many users), however once in, it looks as if the XML file is completely ignored.
Could it be related to the SSD drive in these laptops?

Answer:Sysprep Fails After Deployment With: Windows could not finish configur

So I decided to completely reinstall Win 7 Pro, add drivers needed and Sysprep using the same Unattend.xml file I created, it now comes back with an error after sysprep stating it doesn't like the "amd64_Microsoft-Windows-Shell-Setup__neutral" pass under "specialize".

It then states it has to reboot and when it does it comes back with an error about "unexpected error" and "windows installation cannot proceed" and to "restart the installation"??

I did manage to Shift+F10 into a command prompt and copy the "setupact.log" and the "setuperr.log" from the "C:\Windows\Panther" folder, it seems to complain about a product key which is not listed in the xml file, so not sure whats up with that.


Code:
2012-11-08 00:39:16, Error [Shell Unattend] ProductKey: '' installation failed (0x80070057)
2012-11-08 00:40:18, Error [windeploy.exe] Setup.exe failed, returning exit code [0x1f]

Hi,
Greetings!
I would like to ask for your assistance because I'm already out of ideas how to resolve this issue. Right after I powered up the laptop, it will get past the DELL logo screen, then it will be completely just black screen. I wouldn't even hear any activity from the CPU fan, HDD and pressing the Caps Lock doesn't lit up the LED. The LED indicators on the side are only displaying the power indicator, but none for HDD, Battery and Wireless.
Here are the steps that I have done so far:
1) Removed the HDD and Battery, then press & hold the power button for at least 45-60 seconds to disperse the internal voltage. Then attach the Battery, but not the HDD.
2) Press and hold Fn and then the Power button, hoping to boot me up to the ePSA Diagnostic Utility
3) Press F2 or F12 while booting up
4) Re-seat the memory and also clean with a dry tissue
These are the procedures that I have done but nothing has changed. It still displays blank screen right after the DELL logo.
I do hope that you could assist me on this. Thank you so much!

You would need to find someone very good at soldering to permanently fix it. Motherboards are often multi-layer and it is easy to solder things together that you shouldn't. In manufacture they are fitted by flow soldering (bath) techniques. Thanks for the feedback.Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

I installed Windows 7 64-bit on my Latitude E6400. I cannot seem to find any way to install Dell Control Point. I got the Driver Pack to install. I found one download of Security Manager that worked, but I would like the Power Manager one.

I've looked on this forum a few times and any links I click on just redirect me to the Drivers and Downloads page. I get errors saying that my service pack is not supported.....I'm on Windows 7 Service Pack 1. I also got some 32-bit errors, but that's my fault for downloading the 32-bit version.

Does anybody have a link to the full Dell Control Point package (Power Manager, Connection Manager, Security Manager) that will work on 64-bit Windows 7?

and which is newer 

Answer:which is better dell latitude e5440 or dell latiude e6430

The E6430 has a metal case and is more robust, but uses an older CPU and chipset.
The E5440 is a plainer chassis with a newer generation CPU and chipset.
The E6440 is the concurrent update to the E5440.
There are too many possible configurations to definitively say which is better -- it depends on the CPU, GPU, etc. in the specific model (or that you choose when you order one, but since the E6430 isn't a current model,  you may be looking at used systems).

Answer:DELL Latitude 3340 Stuck at DELL LOGO

Hi james.hilham, 

I would like to look into this further, can you Private Message me your Service Tag on the system? Also, it sounds like you might have seen the Diagnostic Boot Screen, but can you try these steps below to see if it gets any further:

1. Disconnect the AC adapter from the system and remove the system battery.2. Hold down the Power button for approximately 10 seconds to drain any residual power and then release the power button3. Hold the power button down once more while inserting the AC adapter into the system. This will initiate the Forced ePSA which may clear the state causing the system to remain at the Dell splash screen.4. Release the power button once you see any text on the display or the Dell splash screen\5. The Dell ePSA (Pre-boot System Assessment) diagnostic page will next appear6. If the ePSA page does not appear then the recovery method was not effective.7. Should ePSA initiate allow it to complete the quick test to determine if any component failures exist.8. Should the system recover from the condition and boot into the operating system, it is very important to update the system BIOS immediately after the system has recovered to prevent a reoccurrence.

You also view a video on the steps here: 
Lastly, when the system freezes at the Dell startup screen, can you let me know if there are any diagnostic LEDs, such as a certain blinking light pattern (there might even be solid lights) for the HDD LED, Power LED, and/or the Wireless L... Read more

Okay, carrying around my Dell Precision M4700 is definitely NOT fun.
I am considering getting Windows tablet for doing basic document / web surfing work with a keyboard attachment.
I was looking at Dell Latitude 10 vs Dell Venue 11 Pro mainly for their user replaceable batteries (especially the Latitude 10 with its ability to have a 4 cell battery in the back!)
Battery life was the most important consideration. And I know how important it is to have a device with replaceable battery from my experiences (so definitely won't be getting a Surface, sorry)
It seems that these two Dell tablets are very similarly spec'd except the Venue 11 has a screen that is .7 inch bigger, which is not a big deal to me. I would be getting both with the Intel Atom processor, since I will be using my Precision for anything intense.
The Venue 11 Pro can be had from Microsoftstore Canada for around $600, while I can find a Dell certified refurbished Latitude 10 tablet from Ebay for about $400.Buy Dell Venue 11 Pro Tablet - Microsoft Store Canada Online Store
The spec seems pretty similar, but I do like the fact that I can add a 4 cell battery in the Latitude for the total battery life of 17 hours, which is why I am leaning towards the Latitude.
To summarize my questions
1) Do you own either of these devices? Could you let me know what you like and do not like about your Dell tablet? How are the keyboard options on both?
2) Do you have any experiences with Dell certified refurbished tablets? The one... Read more

Answer:Dell Latitude 10 Tablet vs Dell Venue 11 Pro

I have never handled a Latitude 10 and my experience with the Venue's is limited to owning the 8 and handling the 11 for about a total of 30 minutes.
Do know that the latest generation of Atom is a major improvement over previous iterations, as least, thats what I have been led to believe.
For basic (or even normal) use, both should suffice, but I'd go for the 11 Pro if performance is on your mind.
The Core i3/5 versions are faster, run hotter (use fans) and probably use more power I believe.
sorry I can't help more

I own a Dell Latitude E6430.   I am looking for a Dell Companion 12000mAh or 18000mAh type of device to power and charge my Dell Lattitude E6430 when I am traveling (no outlet available).   When I view the compatibility list for both the Dell Companion 12000mAh and the 18000mAh I don't see the Dell Latitude E6430 in either list.  I went and purchased the 12000mAh and I am attempting to use this to charge and power my Dell Latitude E6430.  It powers my Dell Laptop for about a minute and then quits.   Is there a solution for this problem?   And/or is there another Dell Companion type device that I can purchase that is listed as 100% compatible with the Dell Latitude E6430?   I would like to either get this solution working or purchase the product that is listed as 100% compatible.

Hi,
I am having all sorts of trouble imaging a new Dell 5570 laptop with custom Windows 7 SP1 Ent. through SCCM.I have tried Dell support and their assistance so far hasn't been satisfactory unfortunately.

First: I had issues booting the laptop with my boot image, SSD was not recognized. I had to import Samsung NVMe drivers into boot image for the SSD to be recognized and to kick start task sequence.
Now: The task sequence doesn't go through. Immediately after 'Set up Windows and ConfigMgr', the laptop reboots and crashes with the error '0x0000007B'.

I have already tried below with not much success.

Dell Diagnosis says no faults detectedSATA Operation set to AHCI, RAID on in BIOSBoot sequence set to Legacy, UEFIWith and Without 5570 drivers after applying O.SWith and Without KMDF, UMDFDifferent WIM files-one recently updated with most hotfixes, one updated last year, one close to vanilla Windows 7 SP1 Ent.
Any help here is much appreciated please as I have around 20 laptops already procured from Dell and waiting to be imaged before deploying.

Thanks,
Madhusudan

Question: Dell Latitude XT

Hey there ive got a friends latitude XT here just put 7 on it and its working perfect apart from the tablet buttons.(the ones that rotate the screen and things) they dont seem to be working and im not sure what drivers to get for it or what, its fully up to date now and still nothing.
please help me xD

Answer:Dell Latitude XT

HERE is the Dell Lattitude XT drivers. They have Win 7 64 bit and 32 bit drivers. Select the OS bit you have.

Keep in mind the correct and required install sequence for a Dell (and many others) is (1) Install Windows (2) Install Dell Laptop System Software (3) Install motherboard chipset drivers (4) Install device drivers including video, sound, ethernet, etc.

Hi everyone,

This is a long shot ... I've got a machine from about 1998 here and am hoping someone might be able to remember something about them. It's small, black and very chunky - the Dell Latitude XPi CD ( 166mhz! ). I needed something with windows 98 so I 'upgraded' the drive from 2 gb. to a Samsung HM100JC ( 100 gb. ) Basically I've got some games that don't work with compatibility in XP at all ...

All fine and dandy with swapping the hard drive, but the underneath of the machine gets universally hot as hell! I don't seem to be able to detect a fan, much less any cooling vents. Would I be right in thinking that it was fine with the 2 gb, and it needed neither a fan or cooling vents, but that my latter day 100 gb. drive runs that much hotter? I actually love this laptop, but want to 'waste' neither it or the drive, so any suggestions much welcome!

I've tried the Dell site but the documentation I found wasn't hugely informative about the specific problems I'm having ( though to their credit, all of the setup files were there for download ).

Many thanks,

Tony
 

Answer:Old Dell Latitude XPi - very hot

If your new hard drive is higher RPM than the old drive, then that would explain the heat. Your old drive was probably 4500 RPM, and the new one 5400 or 7200. If that is true, there's not much you can do about it short of buying a new drive.

Thats a normal problem for those keyboards. You could probably have gotten those keys working again by reseating the cable from the motherboard to the keyboard. Now it sounds like you need a new keyboard. You can probably get one from Dell or possibly find a used one from ebay. Replacements can also be found online like this.

Answer:Dell Latitude CPx?

I have a Latitude CPxJ very similar to what you are describing. I put in a 40 gig hard drive, and eventually had to replace the keyboard (which was simple) and have had absolutely NO problems for the last 5+ years. I run Windows 2000  and Linux as a dual boot with a wireless card and have had no issues with either.That price is a bargain if it is fully functional. A new battery costs about $100 and gets me about 3 1/2 hours of use.Any other questions?

Question: Dell Latitude CPx

Hi, I have just brought a Dell Latitude CPx back from the dead and it is working wonderfully apart from the fact that the Function (FN) keys don't 'function'.
Any ideas please?
 

Answer:Dell Latitude CPx

Humm... old.

When you say you brought it back from the dead, how so? Did you have a Dell recovery disk, or did you install an OS from a box into it? Was the keyboard okay before hand, or was it part of the reason for it being DOA originally?

The CPx series were one of those 'semi'-Dell machines, since the same notebook could be purchased in a number of liveries, including HP and Gateway (your machine looks exactly like my Solo 1400). If you loaded an operating system into it that wasn't from a recovery disk, then you probably need to download the drivers from the Dell website into it. Otherwise, the keyboad may be out of sorts, and may need replacing.

If you can find the service tag number (on Dell laptops, they tend to be on a thin white label and are only 6 to 8 digits long), you can punch it in here (http://support.dell.com/support/top...y_systems_info/details?c=us&l=en&s=gen&~tab=2) to find out what was on this beastie originally, and what can be downloaded to it.

Ok, so here's the problem.

I have a Dell Latitude CPx J65OGT BIOS Revision A08.
I also have the Windows XP Pro Reinstallation CD with Service Pack 2.

The original problem was upon bootup the computer gave a STOP error:

Then she asked me to get it connected to the internet through her cable modem.

Alright so my brother was playing on xbox live last night and for some reason he found it necessary to prop open my laptop to check his stats for Battlefield Bad Company as he played it. Now my brother is what you would call a hardcore gamer, his session lasted a good 5 or 6 hours.

I awoke this morning to see that he was still up and he tried to lighten the mood be telling my my latitude has an attitude. I may have laughed but i could see by the look on his face something was bad.

So now when i try to turn it on, the power lights and the lock lights go on for about a second then go off again and there are none of the sounds of a computer startup that i recognize. He said it was plugged in and then just suddenly shut off.

He had it sitting on a solid table so i am guessing that it probably overheated and the fan couldn't do it's job.

The model is Dell C510/C610 Latitiude this is my first laptop bought off ebay for 200 and its been running fine for the last month.

You can also hook the hard drive up to a desktop using an adapter and copy the windows install files to it and start the setup from that command prompt.

Can anyone please tell me where I can obtain a plug to fit the DC input socket (3 pin) on a Dell Latitude laptop ( The cable is open circuit inside the existing hard wired plug and I am reluctant to buy a new power supply ). I suspect this may be unique to Dell, but fingers crossed !!!!

Answer:DELL LATITUDE POWER

click hereis it one of these. If so it is a clover leaf connector and they are pretty common. Are you located in the UK before we start posting where to get them.

I'm in the process of looking at new laptops and want to see if there is a consensus on what would be a better choice.

*Latitude or Inspiron?
PIII 1.0 GHz
*Display: XGA, SVGA, or UXGA (any real difference between the 3?)
10/20 gb ultra ata hd (guess they are 5400rpm, doesn't say)
256 mb RAM
Win2000
*USB or PS2 Mouse?
Xircom Realport if possible
Doesn't a second battery take up a cd/a: slot?

Laptop will be docked while in office and is used by Legal Director who will be on the road with it during the Legislative Session. Medium use.
We've gone with Dell Desktops and have been pretty happy with them. We've also done Latitute/Inspiron laptops:
Inspiron 7000 (C366)(P366) and Celeron don't mix, the PII works fine.
2 Latitudes C600 (P850) with Win98/Win2000 are very reliable.
Latitude C800 (P1.0) with Win2000 is so-so (BUT, I didn't put it together, a non-tech person did, but it's hers, so there).

Latitudes are about $2600, whereas the Inspirons are about $2000 (also with Office XP).

Thanks for your inputs.

Randy
 

Answer:Dell's Inspiron vs Latitude

Inspirons are more powerful but more bulky

Latitudes are classed as ultraportable but they are not as portable. They often come with more connection possibilites

[ finds other 7400s ] it has a little "centrino 2" sticker on it. so could it be very new or sth to be online?

Are you sure it's not a Latitude V740 or E6400? There is no "7400" model.

Question: Dell Latitude 3580

I bought a Dell Latitude 3580 with 8GB and Windows 10 Pro recently. I previously had a Inspiron 15 with 4GB, dedicated Video and Win 10 Home.
Everythin working fine except my second monitor. It's fine with the inspiron 15 (4 yeard old) texts are crisp clear at 100% but when I connect my new latitude text on the second monitor is not sharp.
I have increased the scale to 125% to make it better and it's lot better than before now.
I would appreciate if anyone could explain why it's not working on the new expensive laptop but working on the old one ???
Is it anything to do with the dedicated video card ???
Can I add a dedicated video to my new Latitude 3580 ???
Thank you

Hi, just wondering if anyone knew whether or not the Dell Active Stylus can be used with the Dell Latitude XT3.
Cheers!

Answer:Dell Latitude XT3 compatability

Arooke,
Unfortunately, the only systems that Active Stylus works with are listed below.
Compatibility This product is compatible with the following systems:

XPS 12 (Model 9250)
Inspiron 15 7000 Series (Model 7568)*
Venue 8 Pro (Model 5855) (Coming Soon)
Venue 10 Pro (Model 5056) (Coming Soon)

*Wake up feature not available
The Latitude XT3 uses and Electrostatic Pen. Information listed below.
Electrostatic Pen
The Latitude™ XT3 uses a specifically designed electrostatic pen or stylus for use in tablet PC mode. Instead of relying on battery power, the energy source for the stylus is magnetic energy produced by the excitation coil built into the digitizer itself. The signal from the coil is picked up by the stylus and triggers the stylus to transmit an electric field.
The transmitted electric field is sensed by a matrix of conductive lines, accurate stylus position determined using the low amplitude signals received on the vertical and horizontal conductors, and an appropriate signal is transferred to the digitizer's onboard processor.
The pen should be designed to support multiple pen tip types to provide the user with a choice in tip/screen interaction when writing.  Two basic nibs will include a hard plastic "standard" nib and a softer "felt" nib.  The nibs should be different colors to help users distinguish the two types. The pen nib can be removed without a tool.
The stylus pen kit that come with the Latitude™ XT3 contains o... Read more

I have a Dell Latitude 620 laptop, running XP pro. A few months back it would not boot nor charge the battery. I assumed the problem was the battery so I bought a new battery from Dell, it installed nicely and I let it charge for about a day. Now either on battery power or with the AC connected the laptop will not boot. Upon pressing the start button, the green 'power' light comes on and the 'disk' light, (this is what I call it, it looks like a stack of platters, and is located right beside the power light) comes on very briefly, maybe 1.5 secs and then goes off. No beep, no whirr of any drive, no noise and nothing on the screen. Any suggestions? How do I troubleshoot this? Any advice at all would be most appreciated! Thanks in advance guys!

Hello! Help me to understand.
A laptop DELL Latitude E5420. Motherboard 0H5TG2. RAM 1x2GB 1333MHz 1.5V
I would like to increase the RAM to 8GB. On the official website DELL I offered 2x4GB 1600MHz 1.35V
The question arises as to the compatibility of the new module to the motherboard. Does the motherboard such a memory? You can download somewhere on the motherboard manual?
I also wish to change the HDD to the SSD. SSD 512GB can I install? Do I understand that to do that I need to buy a SSD form factor 2.5"?
Thank you in advance...

Answer:Dell Latitude E5420

No, to the memory upgrade - max is 2X4 = 8 G total.
Yes, to a 2.5" SSD.

Step-by-step instructions on how to re-format c drive on a Dell Latitude (old) with only 64 meg ram and clear current partitions (there are 4- two large, and two w/only 4 meg ram on them) to free-up enough space to do a clean install of XPPRO from "c prompt". Thanks in advance!
 

Answer:Reformat Dell Latitude

tfagund,

Welcome to TSG but you need to create your own thread. to do that you should click on the red triangle in this instance and ask a moderator for help.

then before you do anything with your computer you need to get a lot more RAM

you probably need to provide a bit more info on your computer to determine if this is a good idea to upgrade if this laptop is really old.

Answer:DELL LATITUDE E6430 I5 pro

Many (most) Dell's do not have user fan speed control. Its what it is. Laptops, in general, tend to run warm as they sacrifice extra cooling for reduction in fan noise.

This looks like power supply failure. Try it without the battery in case this has a short - it should run without it.
It is fixable but needs a skilled workshop technician.

Nope! Besides, ATI RAGE Mobility?, is not a true 4Mb. The video memory is not on the die itself, but it is part of the packaging. The way these integrated units are set up, your using ram resources.

Hello, A friend just gave a Dell Latitude cpi because he shut it down with the reboot to start up in dos mode. He didnt know how to change it back so he gave it to me. When its turned on, the screen says Invalid system disk replace the disk and pres sany key. I have xp to put on but no key code for this computer. It has windows 98 on it. I dont have that disk, is that the only way? I would just like to get it back to the previous setting that worked, not in set up either as far as I see, so I can use it for games or what ever.

Thanks
Chris
 

Answer:Solved: Dell Latitude cpi

I'm pretty sure that if you don't have the original disk, you are pretty much going to have to start from scratch.
