I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)


My husband is considering purchasing one and would like to know if they can be hooked up to an external monitor and dvd drive? How would you do that in a simple way as we are not techies.
I would appreciate any info on this.

A:Latitude 5285 and other 2 in 1 laptops

Hi Carol,
Thank you for writing to the Dell Community Forum.
The Latitude 5285 system has a USB 3.0 Port and an external DVD drive can be connected. It has a USB Type-C (Refer to this link http://dell.to/2vsCU9w) and you would require a Dell adapter USB-C to HDMI/VGA/Ethernet/USB 3.0 to connect an external display (Refer to this link http://dell.to/28RIlmw).
Kindly get back if there are any further queries.
For me to better assist in troubleshooting, please click my DELL-username and send me a Private Message with the Dell Service Tag number and your email address.

Hi there,
Before I start to talk about the Latitude 5285, let me explain another tablet that i having which is Dell Venue 8 Pro 5855. Dell Venue 8 Pro 5855 smart card reader(NXP chip) is able to connect by 3rd party library (github.com/.../pcsc-sharp), after connected, I can go on to scan card like MiFare Desfire 14443A and ISO/IEC 15693 13.56 MHZ.
Recently, I bought this Latitude 5285. The smart card reader of Latitude 5285 is produced by Broadcom. The software that I created is not able to work with this smart card reader. There are 2 smart card readers under Device Manager’s Smart card readers category which are “Contacted Smart Card Reader” and “Contactless Smart Card Reader”.
I have done tremendous researches on the internet.
Some said that is because contactless reader by default is only for Pre Boot Authentication, 3rd part program is not allow to use it unless turn off something. This website (https://blog.g3rt.nl/enable-dell-nfc-contactless-reader.html) author is telling that Contactless Smart Card Reader need to turn off the CV Radio mode etc by using the Dell ControlVault driver DOS tool called ushdiag.exe.
But I have checked the ControlVault driver of latitude 5285, there is no ushdiag.exe tool provided.
I have checked this Latitude 5285 BIOS Setup. I did not see any related settings that i can deal with.
Any approach to enable it? To me, it seems contactless reader is locked.
Please help.

Thanks and regards,

The battery light on my Latitude 7370 started to flash in orange and the laptop is not using the battery. It does not start when the AC is not plugged, and shuts down immediately after the AC is unplugged. However, the Dell online diagnostic test for battery passes it as working OK (the test for motherboards also passes). In BIOS, I can see the battery as 100% charged; however it also says "Health: Communication Error". A week ago the battery still had enough charge for up to 5 hours of office work. I have tried to unplug the battery, start the laptop without it, and then plug the battery back. I have also tried unplugging and plugging back the CMOS battery. Neither of these helped at all. I have been using the laptop with WD15. The behavior persists on 2 different WD15 units as well as on the default AC charger.

So, I bought this top of the line Latitude 12 M7 with 4K screen, and that was a biggest mistake for all...
The battery life is like 2h 2o min, and that horrible keyboard with a stand behind the screen is not user friendly. I can't even use it on my lap, and thank you for some "horrible" re-engineering design, the Latitude 12 doesn't have a keyboard like the 11 or 13 has! So no built in battery to power the tablet, and no regular laptop style closing lid. Why??? Why someone design something backwards ?
By any chance the Latitude 11 keyboard with the built in battery would fit with the 12? Or in the near future they will realize this model is way overpriced, and the battery life is a joke ?
I am at the point to sell this, forget about I7 and 4K and just buy a Latitude 13 6 gen M5 with a working battery life. Any of you have a suggestion, what I should do? Is any other model recommendation with size of 11-13 , with a decent battery life?

The battery on my Latitude E6540 has become a little loose. This maybe normal with time? I'm not sure. The battery still charges and performs normally. However, it seems one of the springs in the battery release latch has broken. Thus, I cannot remove the battery to inspect the looseness. The battery wiggles a little. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. My latitude is still under warranty. As I work at an academic institution, the laptop is also registered with the institution. I figured I'd ask Dell first since the warranty is still in my name. Much thanks in advance.

Just got given an E6530, minus a battery and "plus" some darkness in the lower right corner of the display.
It's the lowest resolution option that was available. (Of course a county government would go with the cheap option.)
I know there was a 1920x1080 option for the LCD. What other models used the same lids and displays? What's the Dell part number for the 1920x1080 lid?
I don't care if the housing colors don't match, I just want the top resolution. Mix-n-match will make it customized.
Just finished wiping the drive and doing a clean install of Windows 7. Now to get all the drivers. (Someone in the county's IT department screwed up the recovery partition, or replaced the hard drive with one not-from-Dell.)

A:LCDs compatible with Latitude E6530?

Parts-people.com has a couple of FHD screens listed.  Looks like the back cover assembly doesn't need to be changed, but the display wiring harness does.
There is a note that states that the FHD screen is for systems that already have FHD screens - it may not be possible to upgrade what you have without also changing the mainboard (it's far from inconceivable that the FHD screen may require a mainboard with discrete rather than the Intel GPU yours almost certainly has) -- so call before deciding (what) to buy.

Hi, I tried to put 4GB RAM from my Acer Travelmate P236 into my Dell Latitude 3640, but it wouldn't work. Is there any reason for this? 
I understand RAM is not always compatible, but they seem very similar.
I put it in, switched it on, but it made very loud beep warning noises, so I turned it off and removed it.
Underneath the top RAM it says ONLY DDR3L DIMM A. The bottom one says ONLY DDR3L DIMM B, as you can see from the first picture.

In the bottom picture, the RAM at the bottom is the Dell RAM, and the top is the Acer RAM. What is the difference, and why did it not work? Thanks so much for your help.

A:Why is this RAM not compatible with my Dell Latitude 3640?

Hello!I have 2 problems that have happened before and after wiping the laptop and reinstalling W10 they go away. But when the battery runs out they come back after recharging.
Originally this machine was running 8.1 and these issues were not present.I've gone into F5 and run the Pre-boot System Assessment and everything says it's fine? Confusing.
1. When booting up I get the message "Alert! The AC power adapter wattage and type cannot be determined. The battery may not charge. The system will adjust the performance to match the power available." 

I select F2, go to Battery Information and the AC Adapter = Unknown.
The little light on my adapter is a solid white so it is in fact charging.

2. If I select F1 and go into the laptop ignoring the adapter warning the mouse pad does not work.

I've uninstalled and reinstalled the drivers and still have the same problem.
I've also checked to see if it's locked, it's not. 
I've tried plugging in a mouse and it doesn't work either, only touch screen

Like I said, if I wipe the computer and reinstall Windows 10 the laptop works fine in both laptop and tablet mode, but if the battery runs low and turns off these 2 issues come back. Any ideas besides reinstalling w10?

HI, I'm thinking about picking up a 5285, but need to understand what the 5285 can use for external displays, and how to do it before purchasing.
I currently have a U3011 2560x1600 display. Will it work?
I'd like to switch this to run a dual of 1920x1200 displays. Will this work?  If so, what is the recommended port replicator for this?
I've asked online chat a couple of times. One said no on the 1920x1200, one 1080 only. Another first said no on dial displays, then, technically 2 1920x1200 is possible but there may be problems. I'm using this for work and not playing games on this setup, so I don't care how fast the displays are as long as they are not laggy system performance does not suffer much, and can play a youtube video.

A:Lattitude 5285 supported external displays

Hi Jeff,
The Latitude 5285 ships with Intel i3/i5/i7 processor and Intel HD 620 graphics based on the region. Kindly find the specifications here.
Even if you choose the i3 processor - 7100U, as per Intel, it supports a maximum of 3 displays and it also supports 4k display. Kindly review the info from Intel here.
The compatible docks have been listed here.
The system however, has 2 DisplayPort over USB Type C ports and I suppose, you would not need a dock if you are going to connect two displays.
Let us know if you have any other queries.

I ran the battery down in my Inspiron 5720 while I was working away, and in desparation swapped it for the battery from my Latitude E6540 so I could continue working. To my surprise this works just fine. It charges normally and the laptop reports the battery percentages normally. Since the Latitude battery has a higher capacity than the Inspiron battery I get a longer battery life as well.
So my question is can I carry on using the Latitude battery or will it damage my Inspiron?
The Latitude battery model number is N3X1D while the original Inspiron battery is an 8858X. The batteries are physically identical.

Hi johnhsrennie,

I accidentally spoiled a little bit of water over my laptop. I immediately turned it upside down, opened the back, removed the battery and waited for 24 hrs. When I turned it on again, everything exept the battery funtioned. On the righthand side of the screen, at the bottom, the battery indicater is on 100%, but the amber batterylight is blinking on the front.In the BIOS it says about the battery 'communication error'. I checked the connections, reconnected it several times, but no avail. Then I restarded it without the battery connected, and turned it out, reconnected the battery, but there is still a communication error.Would a BIOS reset be advisable or is there something else I should try first

Dear all,
I have a Dell Latitude E5470. It is 13 months old. I'm experiencing a very annoying problem. During the last weeks, as soon as I turn on the PC, the battery led starts flashing orange, very rapidly. Once I'm in Win10, the battery icon reports that the battery charge is 5%, but it is not charging. If I try to turn on the PC without the power supply, it doesn't start at all, as any battery is pugged in.
I tried several solutions I read and found on the forum (remove/add the Microsoft ACPI, turn off the PC and remove the battery, update the BIOS, etc.) but none of these succeded.
The BIOS says that the battery is plugged in, but there is a "communication error" so that the status of the battery cannot be identified, whilst the power supply is correctly identified (it reports "90W"). The ePSA diagnosis ends up with an "ePSA 4300-19 - Alert" that says: "Battery - The battery is not installed" and "Error code: 2000-0131".
Honestly I'm running out of ideas other than send the PC to the assistance: that means tens of days of inactivity...

I'm on Dell Techdirect trying to request a battery replacement under warranty but the field that says "Part Serial Number" doesn't accept anything I type into it. I've tried everything I can find on the battery itself and the laptop but there isn't a proper 25 character code on them. Where can I find this information?

A:Latitude 3340 Battery replacement

Think I figured it out myself. I used a QR Code reader to read the QR on the back of the battery (those codes are mighty small I probably misread it before) then only typed in the first 20 characters even though it goes to 25. that 20 character code was accepted so I'll probably resort to this method in the future.

I bought a second user dell latitude L400 from a retailer. It works fine on mains power but after having been off for a while it will not start up on battery power. It will start on batteries immediately after being used on the mains but not after an hour or so.

The dealer gave me a replacement battery and pointed out that the corners of the battery (ref 942RV) were damaged. When I took the machine to him as econd time he pointed out that the battery corners are damaged again and it has longitudinal cracks in the case.

The dealer suspects that I have mistreated the machne and refuses to do any more for me. I have not misused it and have in fact barely used it. It has never left the house except to visit the dealer.

I have ordered a replacement battery but am worried that the machine is cusing damage.

Any views?:

Hi all, I recently purchased a Latitude 7350. I believe the system has a primary battery in the tablet and a secondary battery in the keyboard dock.
However, in both Windows and in the BIOS, it only shows a primary battery installed. The second battery is listed as "not present." I've tried attaching and detaching the tablet from the keyboard multiple times and the status hasn't changed.
Any ideas?

A:Latitude 13 2-in-1 (7350) Second Battery Question

Hi Sincx,
Welcome to the Dell Community Forum.
The system will not show as two batteries because when the keyboard is attached , the system battery & battery below the keyboard will work as one unit which gives 40% more usage time.
In case the keyboard is not used, the unit will still work but the usage time will be less by 40%.

I've tried all on the Dell Thread. Temporary fixes from plugging the adaptor in after power up, release charge and remove battery overnight, clean jack and plug and check for recognized signal etc., update BIOS, reinstall drivers, Changing BIOS to ignore charging (which I don't have the option), ran Dell Diagnostics, ran System File Checker (SFC).... 
Two things. The Balun on the power cord is typically what goes bad (the cylinder looking thing). It's cheap part when you find out what it is and how it's made). Nuff of that though. F2 to bring up BIOS, selected Express Charging (Power) to Standard Power. I don't have a problem anymore.

I am looking at upgrading one of my old Dell Latitudes, it's an D830. My son needs this laptop for school, and it needs about a 6 hour battery span. This laptop, however, only gets about 45 mins on average, and he can't plug it in at school. This laptop I found was perfect for him because it was rugged. I remember awhile ago I bought a  secondary laptop battery for this computer (an older one, not the same model) and it installed through the CD slot. Same thing, as I have found for this computer. So, my question. Where is the best resource to purchase one of these batteries?
SPECS OF LATITUDE (as configured)
4GB of RAM (1GB original)
500GB WD Blue hard drive (80GB original)
Windows 8.1 Professional (XP original)

I bought a replacement battery for my Sony VAIO and whenI install it I get an obnoxious "Battery not compatible with...." window that opens and won't go away. Contacted the battery company and they gave me several things to do neither of which works. Anyone have a clue how to work around this with a VAIO running Windows XP? Theres got to be something I can turn off/unload to get around it. Trying to get around the $199 cost of an actual Sony battery. I see many battery manufacturers offering replacements for this model VGN-SZ120P. Certainly they can't all be bad..?

A:Replacement battery not compatible...?

SOLVED: For the record and future searches.... there is a SONY file running at startup called ISBMgr.exe. Apparently its only function is to monitor the battery and make sure you spent $200 on one of theirs. When you haven't it pops in and tells you. Once it was disabled through msconfig the battery works and charges just fine. I do see online that results of doing this vary on the newer Sony laptops. The battery will work but not charge. On older units such as mine, 2 year old VGN-SZ120p running XP, the fix works fine. I won't get into the should they should they not do that argument....

Hello guys, i've got a huge problem with my Dell Latitude e7440. Battery is not charging. When i took the battery out and put official Dell cable in - nothing, it's not even turning on. The screen is all black
It's interesting, because few days ago I replaced my old not-working keyboard with a new official one. Everything was fine for 3days and then this happened.
Here you have a link to video of the flashing battery icon on top. Link: https://youtu.be/QjWwn1qmOQk
Please help, this is a fatal problem for me. Do I have to buy a new battery? I don't why it worked for 3-4 days and this suddenly happended.

A:Dell Latitude e7440 battery problem!

Unplug the battery and hold the power button for 30 sec.   Verify that the LED on the AC adapter is ON (or the LED on the DC cord side is ON).  If it's not, the adapter is bad.
Once the adapter is verified working, plug in the notebook end and see if the system will power up.  If it will, then try with the battery - if the battery halts the powerup, it's bad and will need to be replaced.
If the system won't power up with a good AC adapter on AC only (no battery connected), the mainboard is bad -- you may have a bad battery as well, but you won't know until you get a working mainboard in the system first.

We are testing the 7275 hybrid device, and we have noticed that the battery will drain significantly overnight while in "sleep" mode.  We have un-checked the box that would keep it connected to wireless while asleep but it still drains 50% or more of the battery overnight while in sleep mode.  These devices have Windows 10 with a custom image build.  Has anyone else worked with these devices and seen similar behavior? 

A:Latitude 7275 battery drain while sleeping

I just bought this device for work and will be stuck with this for the next 3 years.  I noticed that when I got off work, I had this in sleep mode (5:30pm) with a 100% charged battery.  By the time I got home, it would be around 72% left.  It is almost as if the system never went to sleep.  Like you, I have also turned off the wifi while asleep. 
I have a Windows 10 Enterprise and it is the first image that my team would be using for other systems moving forward.  Pretty vanilla installation. 
In a nut shell, I am having the same issue as you.  Do you have it addressed?  Anyone else has an issue with this?

I just got a J79X4 battery for an e6230, and while it appears to be genuine, it is a few years old, and completely flat.
I'm not too bothered if it won't have full capacity or less than the ideal cycle life, but what does concern me somewhat was that the pack is around 7.5V, which for a nominal 11.1V (3S) battery is ~2.5V cell. That does seem disturbingly low for lithium chemistry, though the BIOS reports it as 'healthy'.
A short test with Batterymon showed it charging at a low rate (~200mW), and if it is genuine, I'd assume the protection in it wouldn't let it charge if the cells were dangerously discharged.
Would anyone know specifics of when genuine protection does prevent charging?

Hi Everyone! I bought this nice little Dell Latitude D420. The battery seemed to be working great until I took it out. When I put it back in it was dead and has been dead ever since. Im not real sure what casued it to die so I purchased another battery on eBay that didnt fit. Im not sure if the seller just had the wrong information. My question is how do I know what battery will replace the original Dell battery I have. On the battery it says Type GG386, Rating 11.1V, Capacity 42 Wh. Im not sure what all that means. It also says to replace only with Dell battery module types JG172, GG386, KG046. The battery I bought was the GG386 but the pins would not fit. Is there anything else I need to know before trying to buy another battery? Anything will help. Thanks!!!!

You plug in the charger and Windows sees the battery but it won't charge it.

A:Latitude won't charge battery - solved (e6410)

So 3 motherboard replacements later, I discovered this. No one from dell chat support EVER checked this or asked me to:
Press Fn+F2 or Fn+F3 to enable/disable charging the battery.
Wow, don't you feel stupid...
Dell, please train your chat support please.

I'm new here. I'll just jump in with a vexing problem.

I have a Dell Latitude that won't run on the fully charged batteries. I have several batteries that all indicate that they are fully charged, but the laptop won't recognize the power. It runs fine with the power supply, but what good is an immobile mobile appliance? I'm sick of being tethered by the power cord.

I've been told it's a motherboard problem, but I want to know if anyone else has experience with this issue. I've been all over the 'net and through the Dell site (what a monster), and can't find anything helpful. Do you have some ideas for me?

A:Dell Latitude Battery?Motherboard Problems

This could be a problem with Voltage Regulator - not really a part of the motherboard but indeed in the laptop. This is not something you can generally fix yourself.

So this is the laptop I have an E6430. The battery is not that good and needs to be replaced. At times with this battery in the keyboard does not work. If I take out the battery and then put it back in and restart it then the keyboard works. Does this seem normal? Could a bad battery affect how the keyboard reacts.

I just bought a 9-cell 97WHr slice battery for my Latitude E6430 because my normal battery only gives me 3 hours of charge on a good day.
When I went to connect it to the E-Port slot on the bottom of the computer, it did not register as a battery on the system, and whenever connected, the battery symbol on the top left of the keyboard blinks red repeatedly. What does this mean and how can I fix it?
Also, when I try to connect the laptop charger to the port on the slice battery, the same thing happens. Can someone please help me with this issue?
If it helps, my laptop runs a 2.7GHz Intel Core i7 processor with 16GB of RAM, and the OS is Windows 10 Pro.

Since I've now recently been ensnared in this problem of Dell computers which suddenly and inexplicably no longer seem to be capable of charging the laptop battery - although the AC adaptor still appears to be fully functional in terms of powering the laptop, I thought I would attempt to post the definitive thread on this issue, in an attempt to identify a solution.

I have a probably 5+ year old Dell Latitude D600 laptop, purchased used, and running Windows XP Professional without any problems for the past 3-4 years. As an electronics engineer, I have no problem in diagnosing and repairing minor eletrical problems, to include laptop computers.

About 3 days ago during a reboot, I got the message saying that "Warning: An unknown AC power adapter has been detected, > preventing optimal system performance. Strike the F3 key (before the F1> or F2 key) if you do not want to see power warning messages again.". Not knowing what to make of that in terms of the implications, I hit F3. Only a day or so later, I noticed that one of my two laptop batteries had drained to zero and appeared to not be charging correctly. I checked my two laptop batteries using the built-in test button, and both showed OK, although one was fully discharged. So, the batteries are OK.

In checking the AC adaptor using a voltmeter, I checked the output, and the output was right up to spec with the output right at 19.5V. I examined the laptop AC connector port and it appeared to be both ... Read more

A:Dell Latitude D600 - AC Not Charging Battery

This can happen when you run a battery right down to 0%. Once there, it may never come back. I had a C600 battery do this to me. I fully discharged it, and it never took a charge again
