Q: Airplane mode button not working. Any help, please? First time dell user.

Hi,
I am have recently bought a dell inspiron 15 7000 series laptop. Its only been a month that I have been using it. Everything was fine but my airplane mode button (the button beside F12 and PrtScr which are working fine) stopped working. Any help? Every other buttons on the button row is fully functional so I fear its not a keyboard matrix problem?
Please help me.

I am using an HP laptop with Windows 8.

My problem: I am looking for a way to disable the wifi (airplane mode) button. I am NOT looking for a way to disable wifi or airplane mode, but the actual button that controls airplane mode.

Why?: I never use the airplane mode button (because it is useless), and because Windows thinks its funny to make me go to Charms/Settings/Change PC Settings in order to simply re-enable my wifi after accidentally hitting the airplane mode button (why do they? Who knows.). The reason I keep accidentally hitting the airplane mode button is because I use a mousepad on top of my keyboard while playing games (which frequently hits the airplane mode button). If I cannot find out how to disable the button, then I will simply rip the physical key out of my keyboard (since Windows can't find a better way to solve MINOR issues like these) as a means to stop accidentally hitting the key.

How can I simply disable the button's use?

Thank you,

-Miles
 

A:How to disable airplane mode *button* in Windows 8?

The only Airplane buttons in Windows 8 that I have found are the one in Settings and the one you get to via the Network icon in the Notification Area. Are you talking about the latter one? Theoretically that is a toggle that will then turn Airplane Mode back off (i.e., turn the Wi-Fi back on).

On my Lenovo I can also toggle it via the Fn + F5 key combination, but of course that is not part of Windows.

I bought my HP Pavilion 17-g121wm at Walmart. Works fine, but the fn-F12, which is supposed to toggle Airplane mode on/off, doesn't work. And although Settings shows that the laptop is in Airplane Mode, it isn't. Wifi is enabled. In short, I cannot turn Airplane mode on to conserve battery. I've tried updating the LAN driver, and also installing F12 key driver. Neither helped. I'm looking for some way to be able to toggle wireless on and off. Right now, wireless is always on and I can't change it.

A lot of people seem to be having trouble with the Wi-Fi button and with the airplane mode icon displaying when it shouldn't in Windows 10. Is there some kind of explanation or fix? I did a clean install of Windows 10, and the HP Wi-Fi button driver was installed automatically by the Windows installer, or at least I'm pretty sure it was. I seem to recall seeing it listed in Device Manager or someplace. Anyway, the button was working fine, but today I tried to switch my Wi-Fi off using the F12 button, and it didn't work. I clicked on the Wi-Fi icon in the task bar and switched to airplane mode that way. That worked, and the light on the Wi-Fi button changed from white to orange. I still couldn't use the F12 button to turn airplane mode off. I turned airplane mode off manually and reconnected to my Wi-Fi, but the airplane mode icon continued to show on the task bar, even though I was connected to the Internet, able to browse web pages, etc. I rebooted, and still the same problem. In network settings I went in and turned airplane mode off there (even though I was already connected), but the Wi-Fi button is still not working. Is this all a Windows 10 bug, or is there a fix? I noticed similar behavior on a friend's newer HP laptop (a Notebook 15 model) that came with Windows 10 installed--i.e., the airplane mode icon displaying despite the system having an active Wi-Fi connection. Thanks in advance for any advice or explanation.

Hey there. Like the title says, my airplane mode button doesn't work. To use the airplane mode button, I used to press Fn+F3. I have verified that my F3 button works, and my Fn button works for other function keys, but for some reason both of them don't work together to go into airplane mode. I can still go into airplane mode by clicking wifi>airplane mode. Thanks for the help!

Hello, I have a problem with my Dell XPS 13 9350, FHD edition. My laptop sometimes wakes up in airplane mode. And it sometimes wakes up even though the lid is closed, so when I take my laptop in my hands, it is hot and the battery is drained.
It does this behavior sometimes, like 30% of the time. But it is really annoying since I cannot trust that my laptop will be fully charged when I need it.
I tried following solutions:
 - I updated all my drivers, including BIOS.
 - I fiddled with almost every setting in power options.
 - I changed my wireless card to a better known model (Intel 7260 or something like that)
 - I formatted my laptop and reinstalled Windows 10.
Nothing helped, the problem continuous. So how can I solve this?

This happens randomly.  I can't seem to reproduce it on call.  Basically I close the lid to put it to sleep but the computer doesn't go to sleep. Airplane mode just turns on but the laptop stays on. 

A:Dell XPS 13 9350 Airplane mode sleep issues

Hi Viper2ko,
Thanks for writing to us. 
When did the issue start?
Please update the BIOS and video drivers, also check the advanced power option settings ensure nothing is hindering the sleep mode from working. 
Also do let us know what windows the system is running on, do PM us the system tag# by clicking on my name in blue and select send a private message .
Meanwhile you can go through the below steps to check more on the issue
Open the Start menu and then enter cmd into the search box. Hit enter and the command prompt window should open for you. If not, click it in the search result list.
Note: it is possible that you will need administrative privileges to complete the next part successfully. If you are having trouble, you can attempt to run cmd as Administrator. To do this, search for cmd again, and then right-click it and select Run as administrator.
Now that you have the command prompt window open, enter the following at the command prompt: 

powercfg -requests
There is a space after powercfg
Hit enter . 
If any process or device is preventing your system from going into sleep mode, information about it will be displayed here. The program will attempt to give you precise information on the disturbance
Though we can always rely  on this method, but good to give it a try.

Hi everyone. I recently installed Windows 7 64-bit on a new V310-15ISK which came with FreeDOS. I got all the drivers installed ok, everything seems to be working fine, except for a couple of quirks: 1. Airplane mode hotkey (F7) is not turning the wireless adapter on/off as it should. Instead I get a blank wireless status window which tells me to turn my wireless adapter on first (which it already is).2. Somewhere in Lenovo Energy Management it says it can't give further info about the battery because it's not an original Lenovo battery  (which is a lie). I had to try a few ACPI drivers for the hotkeys to work as there was none on the product support page. I settled on 4eem02ww.exe which is the most recent functional version I found on the web. Can anyone point me to a proper ACPI driver that lets Airplane mode enable/disable the wireless adapter (and displays all battery info)? Cheers.

How to Turn on/off Airplane mode in Windows 10
Review this document.
Use hardware switchMany devices have a hardware switch to turn on or off the Airplane mode. You can use that button or switch to turn off all the wireless signals from your device. However, Microsoft says that using a hardware switch may not necessarily disable all the wireless communications. Some Windows Store apps have the ability to bypass the hardware switch to connect to GPS or cellular data. The best method, according to Microsoft, is to use the Airplane mode button available via Notifications in System Tray.Use Notifications shortcutTo toggle the state of Airplane mode in Windows 10, click on Notifications icon. Scroll down to see the options. Click on the button saying Airplane mode to turn it on or off.

1. I own a U430 Touch now since a few days. I swapped the HDD out for a SSD and did a clean install of Win10 and installed all drivers offered on the support page. It seems that Im missing the energy management driver (which is required for using the dedicated airplane mode key) with the utility.exe or something but I cant find that energy management driver anywhere. Can somebody point me to a fix for that issue? Or if there is none is there a work around?
 
2. I noticed that the notebook makes strange static noises which originate from the speakers. No matter if the volume is turned up or down or mute is engaged, the static noise persists. Is this a defect or a software issue? The driver offered on the lenovo support page for speakers is from RealTek.
 
3. I would like to use OneKey recovery which tells me upon creating a back up that my device does not support this funtion. Is there an updated version of onekey for win 10? (Im using the version from 8.1 since I couldnt find any other). Onekey works fine on my y500.

With the new airplane tray icon, I find that after I resume from a hibernate the icon is not working all the time.

With some testing, I found that if I resumed from hibernate right away then the problem didn't always appear. But after being hibernated a few minutes or more, the problem has appeared every time.

If I turn off airplane mode using the notifications tray icon, the airplane tray icon remains in the tray. I can go to wifi and connect manually, but the airplane tray icon is still there. Hovering over it with the mouse pointer and it says wifi is not connected, even though it is.

In addition, once the airplane icon stops working so does the speaker icon. I can't get left or right mouse clicks to do anything. This behavior of the speaker icon started after the (November) update, which I just installed last week.

Only a restart or shutdown/start clears both these issues.

Touchpad is working only intermittently. Under Human Interface Devices, I have 2 entries for 12C HID Device. When the pad stops working, one will have a ! in a triangle with a code 10 error. I can uninstall, hard shut down (note: restart does nothing. Hard shut down is required) and have the touchpad back, usually throughout startup. It will disappear again just after startup. Rinse, repeat four or five times, and it will work for maybe a couple of hours. I've removed everything from Startup. I've updated using Lenovo Vantage and Windows Update. I am at the point of considering a factory reset, but I'd rather not do that if anyone has a suggestion? I've been dealing with this about two weeks. Not sure if it was in conjunction with a Windows Update, but I wouldn't be terribly surprised. Note: If I uninstall both 12C HID Device entries, rather than uninstalling the second entry, the first reappears with the warning sign.

Hello everyone,

For the second time within the past two weeks I've had quite an annoying problem regarding my left mouse button on my synaptics pointing device, all of a sudden the left mouse button will stop working. The right mouse button and the rest of the touchpad will work apart from being able to click the LMB function. I've had this happen once before quite a few months ago but thought nothing of it at the time. This occurs for around half a minute to sometimes a minute before returning to normal and being able to use the LMB. I am using a Lenovo Z580 if that is any help to anyone.

I have tried searching around the internet for any information regarding this problem but I have not been able to find any solution or information connected to my issue.

Thank you in advance!

Hello LO mate when you click the button do you hear an audible click from inside the mouse it could be something as simple as a stuck micro switch.

Also if it is a wired one check the USB contacts too - in the plug and socket. You can clean them gently with a strip (about 5 mm with the corners rounded off) of old credit card with some lint free cloth around the end of it moistened very lightly with some alcohol

By the way just how old is the mouse?

A:Dell XPS 14z - Win 10 - Eject button not working

Hi Rob,
Is the ODD detected in Windows Explorer?
Does it show up in device manager? Is there an "!" mark or unknown devices?
Restart the system and press f2 key on startup to enter BIOS - check if the ODD ejects while in BIOS.
Update the BIOS - http://dell.to/1n3X2po - enter the service tag and download the BIOS, update and restart the machine and check.
Also, from the same site, check if there is any ODD firmware available for your specific ODD model listed under the tag.
If the ODD does not show up in Windows Explorer - try this - http://bit.ly/2jSg19X
Restart the system and press f12 key on startup - choose diagnostics. Let it run the diags and if you encounter any errors - make a note of the complete error and report the same to us. These are onboard diagnostics and they might possible pick some error if the hardware is not functional.
Also, please click my DELL-username and write me a private message with the service tag and your Name for case records.
Let us know if you have any other queries.

While I am shutting down my PC, my screen is turning off but my power button is still ON and also my keyboard led's were also kept ON. In order to shutdown completly I am doing it manually by pressing and holding the power button for 5 to 6 sec. I am getting this situation even though, I am turning my PC to sleep. It was not going to sleep, my power button is ON continously, it was not blinking as if in sleep mode. Eventhough I close my lid, it was not going to sleep as per my PC power settings (But my screen is getting OFF. Inorder to wake it up, I again has to manually turn OFF PC my pressing and Holding the power button). I have updated my Intel MEI (Current version - 11.0.0.1157). I have also updated Intel HD Graphics Family.  But I can see no improvement.

The power on button of my 15 inch Dell Inspiron that was supplied with Windows 7 had a blue colored LED when the button was pressed....at least it did up until 1 week ago. Now, it seems not to have this blue colored LED anymore. Is this a setting somehow?

A:Dell Inspiron power on button LED not working?

No - it's not software controlled.  Either the LED failed, or the cable that connects it to the mainboard became detached.  What system model is it (I.e., Inspiron N5110, 5535, etc.)?

Hi! Got a new toshiba recently, windows 8. For the last 2 days it keeps going automatically into airplane mode, making me loose my internet connection. Any ideas how to turn it permanently off?

A:Airplane Mode

It could be due to any factory installed software to save battery. Check for installed programs to see if there's any such feature to auto-enable airplane mode during idle time.
