Dell Precision 3520 - 90-watt Slim Power Adapter

Q: Dell Precision 3520 - 90-watt Slim Power Adapter

I was trying to find a slim power adapter for my Precision 3520 with Xeon processors. I ordered the 90-watt power adapter since the slim 130-watt adapter has a 4.5 mm connector.
I powered up the laptop and received a warning message that the 90-watt isn't enough (the laptop came with this wonky 130-watt adapter that is pretty big). I ended up ordering a 130-watt adapter with 4.5 mm connector and I'm waiting on a 4.5-7 mm adapter to get here to make it work.
Today I thought I would try it out. I hooked the 90-watt adapter up with the battery at 80%, opened up Kaspersky and started a full scan while also performing a backup, opened up the Netflix app and started streaming a movie, then opened up Philips SpeechExec Pro to transcribe with Dragon Medical Practice Edition in addition to the following apps: IE, Edge, Outlook/Word/PowerPoint/Excel/OneNote 2016, Sonos, Pandora, Amazon Music, Weather, Weather Channel, iTunes, Dropbox. I was connected to an external monitor via HDMI and had the laptop lid open so the built-in screen was also on.
The 90-watt adapter was more than enough, although the charge took a long time to get to 100%.
I'm posting this in case anyone else is wanting a slim power adapter instead of the large one that comes with the laptop. Google searches didn't find anything productive, so hopefully this will show up for anyone interested and that Googles it.

I received my Dock WD15 and AC Adapter 130W and install all driver available on Dell Support for my Precision 3520 with real serial tag and followed the recommandation here : en.community.dell.com/.../19985641
But, when i connected everything and trying to start for the Dock, i have this error message:

You have attached an undersized 95W power adapter to your system, which is less than the recommended 130W power adapter
After that, I choose F1 to start Windows (on laptop), and everything wokrs (LCD, mouse, keyboard and charing battery to full...)
And when i enter into the bios, i see 95W on AC Adapter, but i have a new 130W.
When i try starting from a 240W from my 3510 friend, it works fine.
Where is the problem?

A:Undersized power adapter when starting from WD15 and Precision 3520

According to the FAQ page for the WD15, when used with a Precision 15 3000 Series, the WD15 must be powered by a 180W power adapter.  If you were using a TB16, you would need a 240W adapter.  The reason is that the dock itself requires some power both for its internal components and to keep capacity available for devices you might connect to the USB-A ports or the USB-C port on the BACK of the WD15 (or Thunderbolt port on the back of the TB16), so if the dock is only getting 130W to begin with, it can't make all of that available to the system you connect to it.

Hi there,

We've got 3 Dell precision towers 5810 that work great, except for a possible bios bug, which I can reproduce on all machines:

I'm using the installed NIC: Intel ethernet server adapter i210-t1.
Our computers go powerless every night (mains power) after a normal pc shutdown. Every morning, when the power is back on, I want to wake up all computers in our building with Wake On Lan (WOL) by sending a 'magic packet' over the network.
This normally works well if the machine has been switched on and off with the power button / windows shutdown. But when I unplug the machine (mains power), wait and plug in the mains power again, the computer does not respond to the WOL packet. (Maybe the PCI-E NIC does not get power on plugging in the mains of machine for the first time).
It works well on the integrated (motherboard) NIC. BIOS / power / sleep state settings seem to be ok.

Hi, I have a yoga 260 with the slim tip power adapter. I also have a zerolemon usbc power bank. Is the any way to use the power bank with the Yoga 260? What i need is a usbc to slim tip adapter. Thanks Paul


Go to Solution.

A:Yoga 260 slim tip power to usbc adapter

There isn't and there won't be an adapter.  The USB-C power delivery process involves a negotiation between the computer (or other device) and the adapter. The same adapter can charge a 5V phone or a 20V laptop. (also 9V or 15V) If the adapter and computer cannot negotiate correctly, no charging will occur. My USB-C charger will charge my thinkpad or my cell phone, but not my other laptops.

I have a new Dell Latitude E7470 laptop with the Pro3x Dock setup for dual monitors for  a user. The setup has been working great for several weeks. Starting last week the laptop began shutting down while docked, and after examining it, I discovered that the dock power supply is turning off? When plugged into the directly into a laptop however it works fine. Not sure if it is the dock or the power supply. I'm new to supporting Dell's, and was wondering if this is a common problem. By the way it is the big 130 watt power supply and not the smaller one that the goes with the laptop.

A:130 Watt Power Supply Dims then goes off when plugged into Dell Pro3x docking station

Hey folks,
Anyone know a good replacement power supply for the Dell Inspiron 546 mini tower (not slim tower)?  It says it is a 300W but from a lot of forum posts/reviews a lot of the replacements don't have long enough cables.  Anyone got any suggestions?
This Inspiron is from 2009 and the PSU has a green light on the power supply and an amber light on the motherboard but no power despite extensive troubleshooting (pulling out RAM, listening for beeps, testing PSU, etc).

I recently got a new Precision 7510.  I want to get some extra AC power adapters.  It came with a 180 watt adapter.
I did a search on the Dell website for power adapters for the 7510 and it lists a 180 watt model and a 240 watt model.  The 180watt is Dell part #450-ABJU.  The 240watt is Dell part #469-4547. 
Is there any advantage to getting a 240 watt adapter?  Will the laptop charge faster?

My current M4700 has been my gp development machine, and other than the sporadic Radeon induced laptop hang, it has served me well. I run it with two solid state drives, and although performance is more than sufficient its getting creaky. Its coming up on 5 years, so I'm shopping for a solid portable workstation.
in looking at the 3510, its widely reported that it was a Windows 10 disaster; I think they've finally worked out all the bugs, but I sure don't want to deal with these issues.
if you have a 3520, and I know they're pretty new, i’d love to hear your initial thoughts.

I have a Precision 7710 that the adapter does not power up on the newer Boeing 777's.  I've been told that the 240w adapter is the issue.  The plane power limit is apparently 95w?  Anyone know if a lesser wattage adapter would work with the Precision 7710?  Doesn't need to charge the battery, only needs to power the laptop so I can work longer than 2-3 hours on my long 13 hour flights.

A:Precision 7710 no adapter power on Boeing 777

You need a more portable system than this one if you plan to use it on long flights - there's no way 95W will power a Precision 7710.
Consider  buying a lightweight tablet-2 in one or a 14" or smaller travel notebook (or extra batteries, assuming they permit those on the plane).

I just swapped out a e5-2603 CPU and installed a e5-1620 CPU in a Precision T5600.  The PC will not boot, and prior to a forced entering to bios setup, it gives a warning/error
"Your dell current power supply does not support the recent configuration changes made .."
My PSU is a 635W - this should be sufficient, yes??
So is the 1620 not compatible with this model?

I have a Precision 3520 and a TB16.

I am trying to connect 2 external monitors (2560x1440 each) to the laptop through the dock, but the laptop doesn't recognize any external monitor. The dock is connected via USB-C. The docking cable has a thunderbolt logo and the laptop usb-c port has a displayport logo

Should this setup work? Or do I have the wrong dock? Because when I connect the dock I get a popup saying "The docking station you have connected cannot provide full functionality while connected to the current port. If you have a Thunderbolt port, attach the docking station to that port for full functionality"

How can I get the external monitors to work? Also, the ethernet port on the dock is not working. I tested the monitor on the laptop and that did work. The ethernet also does work when plugged into the laptop.

Hi, i've problem with this nvidia-intel optimus system. After windows reinstalation, i cant go over 1366x768 (it's intel max resolution). But it should go up to 1920x1080 (like in other laptop where windows wasn't reinstaled). As a programmer i checked: Uninstalling drivers, installing new ones from intel,nvidia site, using drivers from dell site, using dell command update, using dell precision optimizer. And still it looks like optimus isn't communicating and i'm stuck with this resolution. HDMI is working correctly with 1920x1080. But laptop screen should have same resolution -_-. I'm using Windows 10 64b Pro

A:Precision 3520 - Invalid resolution in windows

All of the base models have a 1366X768 screen -- did you purchase an upgrade with the system?  If not, that's the maximum resolution for your system.  To check the screen capabilities, go into system setup (F2 at powerup) -- it'll tell you what screeen you have.

I recently received a Precision 3520. About a quarter of the time, if I press a multi-key shortcut (e.g. Ctrl+Win+Left/Right to switch virtual desktops or Alt+Shift+',' in emacs) the computer drops one or both of the modifier keys and doesn't recognize the shortcut (e.g., in emacs, it will recognize just Alt+',' or even just ','). It happens when I press the control keys simultaneously but not if I press one then the other.
Can anyone else with a Precision 3520 tell me if this happens to them? I am going to return this unit but I am unsure if buying a different one will fix the problem.
Reading, e.g. this thread, (and also given some other smaller problems I have with the unit), I am wondering if the 3520 line is just poorly constructed, or if I got unlucky.

We recently purchased some machines, docking stations and monitors for 2 employees in our office building. The machines are Precision 3520 workstations (32GB model), the docking stations are WD15's (k17a) and the monitors as shown in the title are U2417H monitors. The problem they've been reporting, is that the monitors will go black momentarily (maybe for 2-5 seconds) and they'll come back as if nothing happened. This is happening frequently enough day in and day out, that it is distracting them from their work. We've done everything we can think to troubleshoot the issue. We've done clean installs of the Dell approved nvidia graphics card drivers, reinstalled the Intel HD graphics driver, installed the monitor drivers (formally they were generic uPnP windows monitor drivers), updated the BIOS and other Dell drivers via the driver detect utility, updated the docking station firmware, switched out docks and cables (the docks they were using were swapped , changed settings on the monitor themselves, and even got a replacement machine sent out, which didn't change a thing. At this point, myself and the IT department feel we're going down the rabbit hole, trying everything we can think of to resolve the issue. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

My new Precision 3520 mobile workstation is down after only 3 days of use, OS won't start normally. I decided to return it anyway.
So I need to back up hard drive data first. But new problems prevented me from doing it...
Info on my Precision 3520:OS: Ubuntu 16.04HDD: Seagate ST500LM021, 500GB 7200RPM
What I did:Take out the Precision 3520 hard drive, and connect it as a USB device to my old Inspiron N5050 laptop (runs windows 7). The connection is done via an Insignia SATA-to-USB 3.0 converter, it worked fine with other HDD of comparable model (a Seagate Momentus 5400.6, 500GB 5400RPM).
Problem:Upon connection, the driver is successfully installed, but the HDD shows up as having only 2GB size, with only OS files inside. The rest 400+GB of disk, with user data, can't be found.
How to solve this?
Just in case if you need this -- the Precision 3520 can't enter OS desktop. After displaying the Ubuntu start up logo, it got stuck there with black screen, keyboard not responsive, but the following error message pops on and off once every 2-3 seconds:[***:*****] pcieport 0000:00:1c.0: PCIe bus error: severity=corrected, type=data link layer, id=00e0(transmitter ID)[***:*****] pcieport 0000:00:1c.0: device [8086:a111] error status/mask=00001000/00002000[***:*****] pcieport 0000:00:1c.0: [12] Replay timer timeout (Note: those *** are some random numbers)

I have a TB16 docking station with 240W power supply connecting to a Dell Precision 5520 laptop.  The laptop is powered via the TB16 through the thunderbolt connector.  About once a week, I get a BIOS warning that states:  "Alert! You have attached an undersized 100W power adapter to your system, which is less than the recommended 130W power adapter..."
All I have connected to the TB16 are two displays, an ethernet cable, a USB keyboard/mouse, and speakers via the audio out.
I've also had problems getting enough juice out of the USB port to charge my phone.
Several co-workers have the exact same setup, and are having the exact same issues.  Is the power supply or TB16 defective, or just incapable of supporting this configuration? If so, that is disappointing.  I ran a lot more with a 90W power adapter on my old Dell laptop/docking station configuration.

Power Button Tested fine for continuity when pressed
DC Jack Cable puts out the same power as what the power adapter supplies ( Was this supposed to step down the voltage?) I do know the E65XX series had less pins but put out 19v on some wires and 12v on the others) So I was thinking maybe the DC Adapter wasnt putting out the correct power?)
Ram was seated properly and tested for function.
It does not show any signs of power in terms of lights on the board and will not turn on.
Take tried to run it without battery. without battery and ram for lights, without one ram in each slot, with and without cmbos. have already tried taking out all electricity to board and taking out the remaining electricity in hopes to boot. Still no sign of life.

Greetings MakesOwnWeather,
Thank you for your question.
You'd use what we call a 'hard drive enclosure'. What's the physical size of the external hard drive that you want to use? 2.5 inch? 3.5 inch?
The below device draws power from the eSATA or USB ports so no need for an extra power cable. It accommodates 2.5 inch drives only.

I'm wondering if there are any recommended external extended runtime battery options for the 7710 series laptop.
I see dell now has some external add-on battery options for longer runtime for the 5510 -- the Dell Power Companion 1800 mAh
but I assume it must not have sufficient output for the 17" 7700 series.
Is there an equivalent product for the 7700 series? I'd like to add 12 hours of runtime for a location that may have a few power outages a year and wouldn't mind buying a couple or few of these devices if there were one which was compatible.

I've got a Dell Precision 7710 with the Dell Precision Optimizer. It works great for when I'm using AutoCAD Civil 3D in setting up the laptop for optimization by turning off 2 cores and increasing the clock speed of the processor. 
Unfortunately I also do programming with Virtual Machines. When I'm in this mode I want all 4 cores to share the load instead of 2 cores. 
Is there a workflow available to go from one profile to no profile? Do I have to do a restart to switch between profiles? So if I'm doing CAD work and then switch over to programming do I have to turn off the AutoCAD profile to no profile and the restart the computer? I tried turning off the profiles and nothing changes for the cores. 
Is there a way to create my own profile? Or should I pick one like 3ds Max that would utilize more cores?  Or should I not use it since it won't meet my needs?

I cannot find the model number of the screen in the laptop I have salvaged. There is no tag on the back. 
Does anyone know the model number of the LCD screen on the Inspiron 15 3520? I'd like to get an LCD controller board for it if I can.

Thank you!

I it possible to change out the wifi card to add 5g wifi to the Dell 3520?  If so what card.


A:Dell 3520, can you add 5g wifi

Intel Centrino Advanced-N 6200 works and has 5G wifi. I've tried a number of wireless cards in mine and that one works great in 5G, but not quite as well on older standards.

My 3520 had a popup asking me to upgrade to Win 10. I selcted "not at this time"....my computer went to a blue screen first telling me I had lost "boot command"...it then went to a black screen telling me the Boot Configuration Data was missing.My Win8 recovery disk does nothing but finish the install and then tells me the installation can't continue and contact my net administrator or Dell Support. I have tried a fresh install of Windows but same thing...I get the following:
File: \Boot\BCD
Status: 0xc000000f
Info: The Boot Configuration Data for your PC is missing or contains errors.
Any ideas?
Thank You

So I Noticed my laptop has stopped charging,"AC Adapter Can Not Be Recognized" I have the Dell 130w power supply plugged in and it refuses to charge I have tried the dell fix it (take the adapter apart and back in) that has not worked, so i thought hey its the "Dell Power Management" that is stopping my laptop from charging.... WHY can I not disable it?? Dell own bad software is stopping my laptop from detecting its AC cable and the same software is "protecting my laptop" by stopping it from charging.How do I get a new AC cable or how do I disable the Software? 

A:Dell 7559 Power Adapter

Oh and ALL Support is unavailable Phone, Email, Chat

I have a Dell Inspiron 9100. I have checked the adapter/charger and it is putting out he correct 19V.

However, the LED lights on the battery do not indicate anything. After charging for 10 hours, I push the power button and nothing happens....no screen activity, whirling, noise, etc.

I have tried starting with adapter connected and not connnected.

Could a battery be so dead that the computer will not turn on?

Or is it the MB or bios?


A:Dell will not start, power adapter okay

Try removing the battery and starting the laptop using only the AC adapter. If you still get nothing, the motherboard is most likely bad
