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.)

I have done the custom settings for battery from dell power management. I have set that the battery should start charging when it is at 50% and stop charging at 80%. When the battery has charged 80%.It has stopped charging. But the discharging of the battery is not happening itself. I have to remove the ac power so that the laptop should start using battery instead of ac power. The battery should self discharge when it reaches 80% and start charging when it reaches 50%. which is not happening currently. Can any suggest any solution.

FOr the last few weeks... I get an error message every time I plug my charger in.  Now I cannot charge my battery.  sometime it works and other times not.  May be related to what ever else is plugged into the house outlets at home... iPad, iPhone, Mac computers, HP printer, etc.

Very annoying and now cannot leave my puter unplugged.

I think it is a software issue as the charger and cord all work fine to keep the puter alive when plugged in.

TIA,

When I was inputting my battery charge thresholds, I noticed that the word normally was missing the letter 'a' when I clicked on the dot next to where it shows the condition of the battery. I was surprised that Dell would let something like a spelling error make it to a public version. I am running an up to date v1.0.4 of Power Manager Lite. Does anyone know how to submit there types of errors to Dell? Or more specifically, a proper email to get it to the right department? Thanks in advance.

Hello, I had the Power Manager from the windows store and it was working fine until today. Today, I decided to reset windows to refresh my system (there was nothing wrong with it), Now, I install the power manager and it gives me the picture attached here:

Unfortunately, when I hit no, the program closes. If i select yes, I can only view the battery's life and not the ability to set max charge or minimum charge or adaptive  charge etc. If I try to download this same program off of Dell's website (which is compatible with 7577 NOT 7567 for whatever reason) it won't let me. The easy fix is to of course find the DPM component service but I cannot find that anywhere!! So any help will be appreciated. This is a big pretty deal, as I made an account just for this reason. I find the  dell power manager very helpful and love the program, but now I am beginning to question whether Dell intentionally makes the programs only for their latest laptops and products, which is ***.

Hi,
I have the following problem and searching for a solution. I have a Dell Precision M3520 with a Kaby Lake i7-7820HQ. I am using the "Dell Command Power Manager" v. 2.1.1 (latest available at the moment).

When I start the Laptop and the power manager is set to  "Optimized" mode in Thermal Management everything is fine. CPU is using turbo boost like expected and reduces the frequency if nothing todo.
When switching to "Quiet", I suppose it is working like expected, because fan is much quiter, and CPU Multiplier is limited to 22x = 2195MHz
When switching now back to "optimized" or any other profile the fan is getting louder again, but the multiplier is still limited to 22x

Only way to get this fixed is to set mode to "optimized" and restart the laptop

Anyone an idea? or is this just a bug of the power manager?

Hello,

Hoping someone here can offer some advice? I own a Dell studio xps 435t-9000 that is a couple years old. I recently replaced my harddrive and since then (don't know if it's a coincidence or not) I'm having another problem. After I installed it, the first time my computer went into sleep mode/hibernation I couldn't wake it up. Power light was flashing white. Eventually I shut it down manually and then it wouldn't boot. Had a solid amber light, no power except the power supply. Fans not working. I unplugged everything and made sure it was all good. Wouldn't start. Left it overnight and plugged it in the next morning. Started up. Worked great for about 7 hours and then just randomly shut down, no errors or anything. Same deal. Wouldn't start, amber solid power light. Let it sit for awhile, reseated everything and wouldn't start.Gave up for awhile, tried a few hours later and it started. I read a few boards pointing to the power supply being bad or not powerful enough. However, I replaced the power supply about 6 months ago with a Corsair 600 which is plenty power. Could still be an issue perhaps but seems odd it would die in that little time. I also replaced my graphics card if that matters. Finally the last time I checked all the plugs I also took out the board batter for a few minutes to try and "reset" things. Not sure if that matters, either.

Hi,
I have a recent DELL laptop:
Inspiron 7000 (Inspiron 17 7778 2-in-1),
Core i7, 16 Gb RAM, 128 GB SSD + 1TB HD...
Not a lot of programs and lots of space available.
In the last few months I have had a lot of poor performance issues. I finally figured out it is related to Windows 10 Power Plan. When set to "Power Saver", the performance is awful. The CPU is maxed to 0.80 GHz. So when browsing the net or looking at my picture gallery, the computer hangs, and it becomes impossible to use. If I change the plan to high performance, the computer behaves normally - fast!
And even if I change the plan to another plan (i.e. High Perf), the next time I restart or wake-up the computer, the "Power Saver" power plan is set back... Very frustrating. And as shows the image, it is not the "bolded" option in the list. What can be changing constantly that parameter??
I contacted DELL chat support and they asked me to re-install Windows! There is probably a better way to fix this. It looks to me as a DELL Driver conflicting with Windows. Also, my mother has an older DELL laptop on Windows 10 and she experiences the same issue...
Any help would be very appreciated!

The system's fan was very loud so I put in a new power supply and then everything booted up fine. Unfortunately, that didn't solve the problem. It was the Motherboard fan making all the noise.

So, I put the old power supply back in and now the system doesn't power up at all. I checked all connections & I replaced the power cord and tried a different electrical outlet.

I even put the new P/S back in and nothing changed. It still doesn't power up. It's dead!

Do you mean the CPU fan ?
If so then I wonder if the CPU has been cooked

I would start by dispersing all internal voltage.
Detach the power cord
Press the power button in for 20 seconds
Re=attach the power cord
Try again

If it didn't fix then remove all addons, usb devices really anything attached (except screen and keyboard and power cord)
And try again

If it didn't fix then, confirm all internal connections are secure (even detach the dvd drive{s}

If it didn't fix then try disconnecting all fans (what !) for about 10 secs (turning on) I once had a fan of all things, that stopped my computer from turning on (unbelievable, I know)

Lastly, check the CPU for heat damage !

I have just bought a Dell 19.5 V 90 W power supply adapter for a Dell from ebay. The PSU turned up this morning without a power cord. That's annoying enough but when I looked the connector needed is a type I have never seen before. The centre pin is slightly longer and wider than the other two so I assume that is the Earth pin. The centre pin is also offset between the other two. Again I suppose for connecting only 1 way. The two outer pins have a distance of just under 2 cms between them. Please can anyone tell me what type of connector this is. If I can get some info on it then I may be able to get one.

A:Win 7 Power Options or HP Power Manager ??

HP Factory Install is the worst possible install of Win7 one can have, larded with bloatware and duplicate utilities which interfere with better versions built into Win7. That's why most tech enthusiasts won't even run such an install but instead Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7.

Everything needed is in the blue link to get and keep a perfect install just like a million others have done without a single complaint.

If you'd rather first try to clean it up you can try these steps to Clean Up Factory Bloatware
but HP is the worst of all brands for its bloatware so if you ever want to experience native perfect Win7 performance on that machine I'd do the reinstall.

My mouse is connecting fine, but it doesnt power up easily. If I stop using it for a few minutes, it powers down, presumably to save the battery. But then it doesnt start up again when I twist the two halves of the mouse.
I keep twisting the mouse slowly to power up and nothing happens, and then randomly, after several tries, it will power up again.
I had this problem with the same mouse and, thinking it was faulty, ordered another, but the same thing occurred.
I like the mouse's shape and weight, but this power issue is a bugbear.

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.

I'm having issues with a Dell XPS 8500. The power button does not power on the computer at all. I tried the usual reseating everything including the battery and holding the power button in with no power cable. I ordered a new power supply and put it in but now realize it's for an 8700. The only difference is the 8700 psu has the test button and the 8500 doesn't.
If I hook up the computer to a monitor/keyboard/mouse and hold the test button in on the psu, the computer boots and functions as normal. If I let go of the test button it shuts off. Is there a way to turn the test button on all the time because that would fix it.
Is there a special way to test if the power button is broken? I unplugged the button on the board labeled F and I read something about using a screw driver to connect the pins to turn on the PC?

A:Dell XPS 8500 Power Button No Power

Hi,
Thank you for confirming all the troubleshooting steps that you have performed.
Now to confirm if the power button or the power button cable is faulty turn of the system and disconnect the power button cable which is connected to the motherboard.Then power on the system by connecting it to the wall socket then connect a monitor to the system ,we are trying to power on the system directly from the mains.
Hoping this helps.
Regards,

So Dell made a really terrible decision.  They have a transparent strip in the power button for an LED light to indicate if the power is on.  A power indicator is a given in any laptop, no matter how cheap it is.  However, Dell in all of it's genius decided to not include an LED bulb on laptops up to the Inspiron 7000 Series, despite leaving a transparent slot for it.  Seriously, what happened to this brand?!?  Do children make these laptops now?
I want to fix this, as my laptop is no longer returnable and a power indicator is absolutely necessary.  So the only thing I can think of is replacing it with one from the 7000 Series somehow (with some help probably).
This is a Dell Inspiron 5559.  I also have an Inspiron 5547.  Not sure which exact 7000 model I should get the part for...
Are they compatible?
Is there an easier way? Like how Fn+H turns on the hard drive indicator?
Thanks.

A:Can I replace a Dell Inspiron 15 5000 Series power board with a Dell Inspiron 15 7000 Series power board?

The systems use different case and mainboard designs -- and may even be made by different companies.  The answer in all likelihood is no.
I don't think Apple has produced a Macbook with a power indicator -- the PC vendors are playing follow Apple.

Hi,I have a Dell XPS 15 9530 and it will not power on at all. The power supply works as it has a light on - but no power at all - no signs of life on the laptop itself.
I put it to "sleep" and now it will not power on at all. I have another identical XPS 15 which I have used to troubleshoot the problem using parts.
Here are the steps I have tried:

1. Disconnect internal battery, drain static/flea power by holding power button for 30 seconds and try on AC only as well as with battery reconnected and on AC power.
2. Use power supply from other laptop.
3. Use battery from other laptop.
4. Disconnect and reseat memory modules.
5. Disconnect and reseat SSD.
6. Motherboard replaced (twice).

Any help would be much appreciated. I'm comfortable disassembling the laptop if you have any other suggestions to get power to the machine. 
Thanks!

A:Dell XPS 15 9530 - NO POWER - Please Help - Will not power on

Hi LEWSTA,
Rather unfortunate that you had two motherboards replaced and the system will not power on again.
Based on your description, you have already tried most required steps.
Only query - Does the light on the power adapter stay on or does it go off when connected to the system?
If there are no leds seen, I would suggest to replace the motherboard and the DC cable on the system.
If the system is under warranty, then contact us via Twitter - @dellcarespro for faster communication or write me a private conversation with the service tag and your contact details. If there is no warranty, then we can help with a paid service call if required.
Keep us updated.

Hi, I'm running a T61P, Win7 Ent/SP1. System Update repeatedly showed Power Manager 6.67.5 as available after repeated successful updates. I DLd the update and tried to run it manually, but it kept telling me there was an earlier version of PM installed, and did I want to remove it. I said yes, and it seemed to uninstall (and reboot), but trying to run the PM update kept showing the "previous version installed" prompt. I used Add/Remove to uninstall both PM and the PM driver, then searched the registry and removed all references to PM from there, then sarched the hard drive and removed all PM files I could find. I still can't install PM. It's still telling me that there's an earlier version installed. I tried downloading and installing previous versions of PM back to v3, but I still get that frustrating "previous version" prompt and can't get beyond that. Please does anybody have a way to get past this prompt? GaryK

A:can't install Power Manager

After spending $99 on a paid Lenovo tech-support instance that required days of fighting to get through to an ultimately clueless level-2 tech (he tried to use RevoUnistallPro to uninstall a directory containing a downloaded-but-uninstalled version of Power Manager), I solved this on my own and am here posting the solution in case anyone else runs into a similar problem--inability to install Power Manager upgrades with the error message that a previous install exists: Search in the registry for and delete all found occurrences of PWRMGR and PWRMGRV. Once there were gone I was able to install the current Power Manager instance for Win7 (6688 as of this posting). GaryK

My battery had recently died and I haven't had the time or money to buy a new one. My Dell laptop, which I only bought not even a full year ago, still works as long as it's plugged into a power source. The problem is, and it's the biggest nuisance ever, is that the Dell Power Manager Lite notifies me all the time that my battery isn't working or something along the lines of it. It's extremely annoying because it pops up every few minutes or seconds even and interrupts important things. I've done everything I can to try to turn off the notifications, as there is no real option to turn them off. I can't uninstall this program as it's nowhere in my files. Control panel has no way to uninstall it either. I am stuck with the most annoying popup notification. My question is, how can I turn off power manager lite notifications or uninstall the program completely when there are no straight options?
