Latitude E5570 6-cell 84WHr Battery Availability

Q: Latitude E5570 6-cell 84WHr Battery Availability

Hi there,
I ordered a Latitude E5570 from Taiwan Dell and opted for a 6-cell 84WHr battery (and M2 SSD as storage, knowing 6-cell and HDD cannot coexist in this machine), but disappointingly when the machine arrived I found out it was only equipped with a 4-cell 62Whr battery. Despite the 6-cell battery has always been marked as available on Taiwan Dell E5570 webpage, Taiwan Dell told me (only after the machine arrived) that it is currently unavailable, but they will not let me return the machine, because according to them it's not an option for customized products.
Frustration aside, right now what concerns me the most is whether or not the 6-cell 84WHr battery will ever be available for ordering from Taiwan Dell, and if not, how can I acquire it. I can't find this battery even on US Dell accessories website.I believe the part number of this battery is either HNH3K or WJ5R2.

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 swapped the 84 Wh battery for a 62 Wh battery in order to install a 2-1/2" SSD. (The larger battery occupies the space for the SSD). When I booted the computer, it did not recognize the battery. A message popped up, asking whether a Service Tag having been done. The battery will not charge. Do I have to modify a setting in order for the system to recognize the smaller battery?

hey everyone 
I'm about to order the Dell XPS 15 9550, 4K, 960M, 256GB SSD, 16GB.
I decided to go with the 256GB SSD to add 2.5 inch "1TB HDD", but I'm not sure if the 84WHr Battery not large to make an available room to the 2.5 inch drive.
if anyone have any idea about this please help me to make the right decision.
thanks in advance. 

A:Dell XPS 15 9550 84WHr Battery

No, this battery occupies the space of the HDD. The HDD also requires a connector cable and a bracket, so if you want it better pick the HDD model with the smaller battery and replace the cache SSD with a proper one.

Hi all,
I've imaged a couple of dozen 5570's out of the box now, had them up and running with Win10 Enterprise with no issues, and I'm noticing that more than a couple of them have gone into Bitlocker Recovery Mode.  The key that we set it up with works fine, but Device Manager shows no TPM installed.  If I reboot, the BIOS shows no TPM 2.0 under Security, and the drive prompts for the recovery key again.  They're all on 1.11.4 (currently the latest version).  Has anyone else noticed this issue?  We've ordered quite a few of these, and we're getting ready to ramp up deployment.  It's happened often enough that I'm going to have to consider putting the brakes on it if we can't find a consistent solution soon.

I want to install a new PCle SSD into a Latitude E5570 but I need the bracket that goes over the card and secures it from popping out.

Does anybody know what the specs are for the bracket, the part no. perhaps or where I can get it?

Thanks!

A:PCle SSD Bracket for Latitude E5570

They won't fit at the same time.  The bracket for the 2.5 SSD doesn't fit when the M2 is in there, so don't bother trying. You have to decide which one you want and maybe use an external network drive, external storage or Dropbox, etc. for more storage.

Hi, I switched default SSD for Samsung 950 Pro that comes with super fast NVMe interface. E5570 supports this interface - thats one of the reasons i bought it. But I cannot run it on full speed because then I loose some other functionality. The thing is NVMe is really effective when SATA operation is switch Off in BIOS. But doing so leads to keyboard being inactive after every hibernate wakeup, black screens after sleeps etc. There are other users reporting the very same thing with SATA off. So the workaround is to go to AHCI option in BIOS, but it degradates NVMe performance. Any resolution to that?
Otherwise, E5570 is great notebook, powerful, thin, quality material. Only this NVMe thing (and high-frequency noise coming from mobo - which will be hopefully solved by motherboard replacement.)
Thank You, Martin

I seem to have a problem with my "fan 1" lately. I started noticing that my system starts running very slowly under load to the point where even the audio is distorted. After further investigation i found out that my cpu was reaching up to 95C, which is obviously way more than it should be. So i decided to run diagnostics which disnt give any errors. Then i took a look at the startup log, where i found the "fan malfunction error and error fan 1 stopped".
So i did the logical and updated all i could think of (drivers,bios,etc.). The weird thing is that i can hear the fan spinning almost all the time, but i am still getting temps. over 90C.
I'd like to know if anyone else is experiencing this problem and how i could go about fixing it.

Hi,
I have a Latitude E5570 and a 27" external monitor with QHD (2560x1440) resolution.  It's a Dell U2713HM.
When I connect it using the HDMI connector (as the laptop doesn't have DisplayPort built-in) the maximum resolution I can select is 1920x1080, which looks horrible since it's upscaled to 2560x1440.  Is there a way to use the full resolution of the monitor with this laptop?
It may be the Intel HD Graphics 530 adapter that is limited to this resolution, but I don't find a way to use the AMD Radeon R7 M370 (which this laptop also has) instead.
I know there is a docking station that adds DisplayPort support, but will that actually help or does it just adapt the HDMI output to DisplayPort?
Thanks

Hi all,

I have the aforementioned laptop. The issue with it is that Windows 10 does not seem to register the touchpad in Device Management. I have attempted to rectify this by doing the following: 1) new touchpad drivers from Windows 10 update, 2) new device drivers from Dell support pages, 3) new device drivers from the Dell Device Detector dongle, and finally 4) Bios update.

Hello, this is my first post and hopefully someone can help me with my problem.

Here at work I've had a Dell Latitude E6530 i5 since I started six months ago. Being a graphic designer I soon realized it wasn't powerful enough, so our IT department just got me a Dell Latitude E5570 i7 which apparently is supposed to be better in my line of work.
I use the laptop screen as a secondary screen, and have a bigger Dell screen as my primary screen.
Now to my problem; on my old Latitude E6530 I used a 1600 x 900 resolution, which I thought was perfect. Now, with the Latitude E5570, I can only get 1366 x 768, which I don't really like.
So is there any way I can get the same resolution in my E5570?
I'm taking the risk of getting bashed across the head here, but I've been a Mac dude all my life so I don't have much experience in the rest of the computer world. Hopefully someone can assist me anyway, so I thank you in advance, cheers :-)

A:Latitude E5570 - Resolution issue

It sounds like they got the version with the low end screen.  You can't go any higher then the screen is built for and from what I can tell, the model either comes with a 720p panel which is what you have, or 1080p panel.

I have the Dell Latitude E5570 with the Radeon R7 M370 GPU. The issue I have been having is that if I put the power profile to High Performance or to Dell modified to focus on performance and AC charging the laptop turns off when getting into any game. When it turns off it is quite abrupt and the power cable light goes off, I need to then reconnect the power cable.
What I feel might be happening is that the moment it switches to using the R7 GPU it switches off. Sometimes with the Dell profile selected it just stops charging.
The laptop works pretty alright for day to day work usage. I initially had this problem with it but I thought it might have been my wall plug socket that was the issue. Sadly it looks like the issue is popping up again.
Another issue that happens is when I restart it through Windows the laptop's screen just goes black while staying on. I then need to hard power down to get it back.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Dear all! I have a new Dell Latitude e5570, 8 gigs of ram, and a Hynix Pc300 512GB NVME M.2 Sata drive. Did a clean install of windows 10 pro. Updated drivers, and BIOS. No other programs. No attached perirherials. Computer is working perfectly, but the boot time is not on the snappy side. It takes about 30 seconds to get to Windows login screen from the moment i click the power button.
Measured the drive after Windows booting, ant it gives 1800/800 read/write speed so it is 3X the speed of a regular SSD
After clicking the power button the screen remains black for about 8-9 seconds, then the DELL logo shows up. After which is starts loading windows with those rotating circles.
I also have a 3 year old Hasswell architecture HP notebook, with a not too fast regular Kingston v300 SSD. This config boots until complete desktop in 9 seconds.

A couple of weeks ago I purchased a Latitude E5570(the best I could find from this series) and the very next day I found the following problems:- A coil whine noise was there almost all the time(very annoying, especially for a laptop produced in 2016);- I tired to downgrade from windows 10 to windows 7( I have a software from Siemens that requires Windows 7); even though Dell is saying that this computer should work also on windows 7 and they have drivers on DVD that came with the computer and also on their website I wasn't able to install all hardware components; I was not able to find drivers for everything inside the computer, and during the installation of certain drivers Windows crashed a few times; after a couple of days spent of trying to make windows 7 work I just gave up and installed windows 10 back;- Finally I realized the battery was damaged; Dell's battery test showed that everything is fine, but unfortunately I wasn't able to get more that 90 minutes of autonomy without having to recharge the battery;
So, I sent the laptop back and asked Dell for a replacement.

Recently received a new batch of Latitude  E5570 Laptops. Did my normal thing of applying a Win10-VL image, activating bitlocker post install and everything normally runs fine on all my other Latitudes (E5550,E5540, etc.)
However, the following behaviors now occurs:
Scenario 1. User undocks laptops, takes home and turns on at home. 25-50% of the time, the computer prompts for the Bitlocker Recovery Key even though nothing has changed except for the laptop being undocked.  The more unusual behavior is that if we shut the computer down and leave it alone for a few minutes, then turn back on, the computer loads properly without a Bitlocker Recovery prompt.
Scenario 2. User has been using undocked laptop at home. Brings back into office, docks laptop, turns laptop on, is prompted for Bitlocker Recovery Key. If we turn the laptop off, wait a few minutes and power cycle on, the laptop then boots properly.  In a few occasions, even a few minutes makes no difference and the recovery key is still requested. We undock the laptop, power it on and windows loads fine. We then redock it while the laptop is on and then with successive reboots, power off and on have no issues.

Hi,
Intel commited itself to supporting the new Khronos developed Vulkan Graphics API on a wide range of
graphics processors a while ago. One of these GPU's is the Intel HD Graphics 520 I have in my Dell Latitude E5570.

Unfortunately one cannot use Intel's latest Vulkan compatible driver on a Latitude E5570. It simply won't install. You're stuck with Dell's (latest)  'Update Package' containing a graphics driver v21.20.16.4627 (A02) from March 24, 2017, which can't run any Vulkan code 

I just got my Latitude E5570, and for me this is a real show stopper to not be able to do any Vulkan development/experimentation on it.

So apparently the E5570 laptops are a bit difficult to get Windows 7 on in UEFI mode (due to the new chipset and USB3 only support).  Anyways, I was able to get a Windows 7 Ultimate ISO, copied it onto a USB drive (formatted Fat32) and embeded USB3 and Samsung HD drivers.  I'm able to boot and install ultimate from the USB as a legacy device.  However, I am NOT able to install via the USB drive as a UEFI device.  It acts like it is going to work, but just sits as the "Starting Windows" screen.  The reason I need to install it via UEFI is I need bitlocker enabled and from what I can find bitlocker will not work on Windows 7 ultimate if the OS was installed via the legacy option on a UEFI enabled system (it has issues with the TPM).  Is there anyone out there who knows how to get around this?  I really don't want to go to Windows 10 and bitlocker is a must for these laptops.  Thanks

Good day, Everybody!
I've just upgraded the stock 4Gb x 2 ddr4 2133 ram to 8Gb x 2 ddr 2400 ram (Kingston HX424S14IBK2/16). However, the new ram works only at 2133 Mhz and I cannot figure out how to enable its XMP profile DDR4-2400 CL14-14-14 @1.2. The ram works at JEDEC DDR4-2133 CL13-13-13 @1.2V. In the ram datasheet (http://www.kingston.com/dataSheets/HX424S14IBK2_16.pdf) there are three profiles indicated:
• JEDEC/PnP: DDR4-2400 CL14-14-14 @1.2VDDR4-2133 CL13-13-13 @1.2V• XMP Profile #1: DDR4-2400 CL14-14-14 @1.2V
So 2400 mode is supported both under XMP and under JEDEC.
How do I enable 2400 CL14 mode?
Crucial offers ram upgrade for e5570 to ddr4 2400 (www.crucial.com/.../CT8071480) claiming full compatibility. However, crucial's ram is rated CL16, not CL14. Can it be that e5570 cannot run ddr4 2400 at CL14? Only at CL16?

Hi Everyone,
I have a Latitude E5570 with the AMD GPU (R7 M370 I think). When running by itself, I get no issues at all, but as soon as I connect it to my D6000 Dock, I lose the ability to do anything that needs 3D capable hardware. I've removed the drivers for the dock, and GPU, reinstalled them, removed and reinstalled anything related to AMD (Crimson etc), but still, I can only use software that requires 3D capable hardware when the laptop isn't plugged into the dock. Both connected monitors are 1080p connected via HDMI. Laptop is on additional power (not just the dock). Power Settings are all at Max. I have also noticed that when the laptop is connected to the dock, all options for Hardware Acceleration have disappeared. Am I doing something wrong? Is there a particular port on the laptop I'm meant to be using?
Chris

A:Latitude E5570, D6000 dock, 3D Hardware/OpenGL issues

It's because the D6000 uses a DisplayLink chip rather than allowing the displays to be driven directly be the GPU.  From my post in another thread: DisplayLink means that technically the dock can support extra displays (and at higher resolutions) compared to more traditional options, but DisplayLink achieves this by not having the displays actually driven by the system's GPU. Instead, the system's CPU and GPU compress display data for transmission as standard USB data, and the DisplayLink chip in the dock then decompresses it before sending it to the displays. This allows displays to be attached over regular USB (rather than just USB-C, which actually does have a native GPU output wired to it), but the compression also means that when large portions of the display area change at once, such as when watching full screen video or gaming, the display can appear to bog down and/or show compression artifacts. This can also occur when a lot of USB activity is occurring with another device (such as a file transfer to/from an external hard drive) because there's bandwidth contention on the USB bus, and finally if you're running some other CPU -intensive task, which will create resource contention for the display data compression.
DisplayLink also drains battery life significantly more quickly, which admittedly isn't an issue with a dock setup, but DisplayLink products exist in other form factors.
Bottom line: You should consider using a traditional E-Port ... Read more

Our firm has had many Latitude e5520, 30, 40 and 50 computers over the past 6 years.  I always set up the BIOS system password option.  We also use the Dell port replicators with multiple external monitors.  When the user turns on the computer using the power button on the port replicator the BIOS password prompt screen would appear on the external monitor so they can enter the password.  We have recently purchased 5 new Latitude e5570 computers.  I set up the BIOS password on these new computers just like I have done in the past on the older models.  However it seems that the Dell logo and the BIOS password prompt does not appear on an external monitor.  I removed the computer from the port replicator and connected a VGA monitor to the external monitor port on the back of the e5570 and still the BIOS password screen does not appear.  I have to open the laptop to view the BIOS password prompt to enter the password then the external monitor will display the Windows 7 boot up screen.  I spoke with Dell tech support and they said that this is normal.  How can this be normal when all Latitude model e5520, 5530, 5540 and 5550 never had this problem. I even downloaded the most recent BIOS update and that did not fix the issue.   I cannot have the user open the laptop just to see the BIOS password prompt.  I told Dell support that something is not right with their BIOS software but they again said the e5570 is working ...

Hi there,
We have recently purchased (last month) a Latitude E5570 with docking station. We experience system hangs and freezes several seconds, sometimes up to a minute after hot undocking the laptop.  The mouse and keyboard become unresponsive.

It usually emits a beep code before freezing up.  4 beeps then a pause and then 1 beep. Any information regarding this?
Anyone have insights into this?
Thanks!

Hello,

I received last week, all those new models and I have an issue with all of them...
I deploy Windows 7 enterprise 64 bit with SCCM 2012 and bitlocker is setup during the task sequence with a PIN code on boot.
This process is working for all model until then .. Latitude and Precision from previous generations.. but now with new models there is an issue with the PIN. At the end of task sequence, the disk is encrypted and there is no error BUT the PIN code is not recognized and the recovery key is asked.
This recovery key is correctly registered in AD. TPM is on and ownership is ok. TPM version is 1.2...
I already tried to manualy decrypt and encrypt again after TPM reset but no way.
I also tried Windows 10 enterprise, and issue is the same.
Is it a known issue ? Did someone here already experienced the same ? 

A:Bitlocker issue with new models Latitude E7270 E5470 E5570 and Precision 7710 , 7510

Hi,
This issue is one that is being worked on and there are BIOS updates coming out that will resolve it.
At the moment the latest BIOS for the E7270 will fix the issue (BIOS 1.2.2)
For the Latitude E5470/E5570 and Precision 7510/7710 the BIOS updates to fix this will be released soon. I'm not going to give dates at this point as they may change.

Hi, all!

I wish to purchase an HP dv5000t series laptop with a 12 Cell Li-Ion battery, but I saw a diagram on the HP site which showed a bulky mass at the back of the laptop, compared to a 6 cell which did not have this. It seems that such a laptop will not be able to sit flat on a desk.

Does anybody know from experience if this will be the case? If so, how bad of an angle is it? Will it interfere with normal use, etc?

Thanks! Your help is appreciated.

If HP sells the battery with the laptop then it'll work. While it may not sit flat that isn't a problem.

Hi Lenovo experts - I am having a strange issue with my new X270 laptop. I have been using it for over 3 weeks now. The X270 came with an integrated Li-Ion 3-cell battery (23 Wh) and also an external Li-Ion 3-cell battery  (23 Wh). With very light usage (just outlook and office apps) and brightness set to 25%, I can barely get 2h-2.5h of battery life. Is this normal? Per the PSREF, 3+3 cell should give me ~13h of battery life.  Anything else I can check? I did a 'battery report' and I see on average 45 Wh of charging capacity when active. However 'Battery life estimates' show between 2h-3h at full charge. 'Current estimate of battery life based on all observed drains since OS install' is showing 3:50.  Do I have a defective battery? Any advice appreciated!

Someone needs to get a new battery for a very old laptop they have. The battery doesn't work so they have to have it plugged all the time otherwise it wouldn't work. Laptop is 15.6 and sort of heavy but the thing is they never take the laptop outside the house. It will mainly be used on one floor in the house.


100% of the time the laptop is used in the kitchen area where there is a table where its connected using a charger to the wall. Thus if the person had a working battery, they could carry it around the house even though the laptop will stay in one place usually. However because right now the battery doesn't work, it does but it goes out very fast less than 1 minute, they need a new battery.


Is it better to get a 6 cell or 9 cell battery? The laptop will be used at home 100 percent. The thing is this person said if 9 cell last longer, get it. However, im sure 9 cell batteries make the laptop much heavier and has that back part sticking out right? I know this isn't a big deal if you going to stay inside but wouldn't it be a problem/annoyance if you have the laptop on yourself when on the sofa? Does the 9 cell would be really heavy on an already heavy 15.6' laptop?


Also 6 cell batteries last for around 2 hours i believe. How many hours does a 9 cell last for usually?


The thing is majority of the time the laptop will be plugged in but its very annoying at the moment as the laptop has to be connected 100 percent of the time since the battery is no good at... Read more

A:6 Cell Vs 9 Cell Battery for Laptop?

It's a piece of hardware so you're in the right area.

I have a Dell Inspiron N5010 that has a 48WattHour battery. A 9-cell battery would give longer working time when on battery-only so if it is offered and the price is affordable I'd get it.

As for physically working, it may lift the back edge of the Notebook higher but that's not a problem, usually have rubber feet on them. I find that type of rise is actually easier for typing as most Desktop keyboards have feet to raise the back edge, fingers seem to 'flow' better.
