Hello all, After updating the BIOS to version A16 or A17 doesn't work memory card reader :(
On the aforementioned version of the BIOS, when you want to turn on the computer with a memory card inside the system do not get up! Of course, without a memory card system will get up normally but when you again put the memory card the system still can't see it.
The last working version of BIOS is A15 where you can use a memory card reader.
My OS: Windows 10 Pro (x64)

A:Latitude E7440 - memory card reader doesn't work after bios update

I have exactly the same problem. Last working version is A15.

I know there is a way through the BIOS menu but mine looks nothing like everyone else's. There is no advanced tab or Fn Key Behavior button. Also there is no option in the Windows Mobility Center. I've tried little tricks like Fn + Esc or Fn + Caps Lock, I've tried pretty much everything but I can't switch it no matter what I do.

My Dell Latitude E7440 laptop came with Windows 8.1 at the time I bought it. I did not notice this problem until I upgraded to Windows 10.
Sometimes when I put the laptop to sleep and resuming at a later time, the CPU speed is limited to around 0.78 GHz and switching to High Performance mode won't help. The computer becomes very slow and the only way to fix it is rebooting.
I have the latest BIOS installed (A15) and other drivers are also updated.
I have seen other threads saying that the problem is caused from using Dell Power Companion but I am not using it. I have 2 power adapters that I use with this laptop, one of them is a Dell 90W adapter. I am not sure about the other one as I do not have it right now, but that one originally came with the laptop.
Any temporary/permanent fix for this? Thank you.

A:Dell Latitude E7440 CPU speed capped after sleep

I've solved this problem. Downgrade BIOS to A01 and update step by step every single newer version - A01>A02>A03 ... >A15. Now, I'm on BIOS A15 and there is no problem with CPU after suspend. i7-4600u, W8.1 x64.

Hi everyone, thanks for any guidance you can give on my BSOD issue.

The system is a Dell Latitude E7440 notebook and I'm using a PR02X docking station connected to two Dell 24" monitors via DVI.

Please see the attached DM Log Collector zip. I've been trying my best to isolate the cause of the different driver errors, but there's not a clear pattern.

Things I've tried:
- Malware scan
- (embedded Win8.1) Windows Defender updates
- Updated RAID, graphics, chipset drivers.

Seems to happen twice daily, usually after coming off of display sleep (not system sleep, that's turned off). The silly Win8.1 bsod screen usually tells me that the driver at fault is "igdkmd64.sys", but further investigating using BlueScreenView shows that it's a mixed bag:

igdkmd64.sys, rdbss.sys, iaStorA.sys, even NETIO.SYS.

Kind-of feels like a hardware issue, but I really don't know. The system is a month old.

Thanks.

Hi, I have repeated experience of failed BIOS firmware update on Dell e5570. More precisely the part
"Sending Intel (R) Management Engine Firmware Update" always hangs on 100% and never finishes.  The annoying thing is that laptop cannot be shutdown via power button (even with the long press) and I have to wait hours till my battery dies :-(
Im trying to update BIOS from 1.6.3 to 1.7.3. In the end, I have 1.7.3 BIOS version, but Embedded Controller stays on A07 instead of A11 so I got my PC into middle of versions :-( First broken thing I noticed is WiFi always turned off after wake from sleep or after startup.
Dell support, please help. I need new BIOS (and Embedded Controller) to resolve some NVMe and other issues with the laptop.
Thanks, M.

After updating to BIOS A15, the keys to my Dell Latitude E5440 get "stuck" again with Linux. This has been a problem for many frustrating months back when I originally bought it, then solved by a BIOS update eventually, and now back again with A15. A14 worked fine.

Good Evening All,

I having a problem with my Dell Latitude D610.

I went to update the BIOS and it said that the battery is not installed despite the laptop running solely off of battery power!

I have ran the dell device diagnostic and device manager and no issue appears to be with the battery. When you check the battery info in the BIOS settings it says the batteries are not installed and also when you log into XP it constantly says running off of AC power even when its not plugged in!

Any one got any ideas what could be causing this and how it can be solved?

Thanks Nick
 

A:Dell Latitude "battery not installed" preventing BIOS update

It may be referring to the CMOS battery which is wired to the computer beneath the keyboard. The battery can be replaced for $8.95 to $29.95 depending on where you purchase...

But regardless, you do have a problem that must be resolved. The D610 has been one strange little irrelevant problem after another... but you cannot afford to irritate it and have that mysterious unremovable password appear as it has on so many D610 and D620 Dells.

I have a DELL Latitude E7440 with a 100 or 128 GB SSD. There is a free position for another hard-drive. I want to add another hard-drive because the 100GB is too small. I have contacted Dell Germany and tried to get clarification of the following questions:
- is it possible to add another hard-drive or do I need to replace the SSD?
- what do I need to order next to the hard-drive? Cables, frame, rubber strips?
- do I need a 5 or a 7 mm HDD?
- how much does it cost?
Current status is a recommendation from Dell Germany to order the spares at Amazon because they cannot order them. I get no further information on what is required. All I got was an offer for the biggest and most expensive SSD possible, without any cables, etc. Which basically means I will have to buy a new laptop with a bigger hard-drive, and it will not be a DELL.
Can anybody provide any information? I was hoping DELL US is able to provide the information, but I have no further contact details.

Hello, 
I bought a latitude e7440 for a family member a while ago but didn't realize it did not come with a webcam, so my intention is to buy any necessary components to install one. 
I know that I will need to buy the bezel w/ webcam hole (part# 02TN1) and the webcam (part # 7YYT), but I don't know if I need the LCD/webcam ribbon cable (part# D3M6R). 
Do all latitudes 7440 come with the same video ribbon cable, regardless of whether or not the webcam is installed? In other words, if I take the bezel off of the laptop and disconnect the LCD screen, will I find that the ribbon for the webcame is right there, ready to be connected to a webcam? 
Need the expertise of a dell technician. Thanks!

We have around 100x E7440's and on most of them we have the same problem. 
When the machine is operated on battery then the lid is closed it goes to standby/hibernation (this is not the problem).
But when the machine is docked into the port replicator / docking station and switched on, as soon as Windows starts, it goes to Blue Screen.

Hi everyone,
I have a Dell Latitude E7440 laptop running Windows 8.1. I have been having issues with no sound coming in through headphones plugged in through the headphone jack (sound will only come through the built-in laptop speakers). I have tried several fixes including:
-Setting headphones as default playback device (my laptop groups speakers and headphones together, so it is not possible to choose one over the other).
- Removing battery, holding down power key for 30 seconds, restarting
-Updating Realtek Audio driver
-Uninstalling Realtek Audio driver (and deleting files), then restarting computer so the native audio driver is used.
I have had the most success with using the native audio driver (after deleting and uninstalling Realtek). However, when I do this, I have sound coming from both the headphones and the laptop speakers. This will work for a day or two, then I will begin having no sound coming from the headphones again (despite running the native audio driver). 
I don't know if this is a hardware or a software issue. I don't think it is a hardware issue since I am able to get headphones to work some times. Does anyone have any new ideas or guidance? I am debating getting a USB adapter for my headphones, but I am not sure that would solve the problem if it is a software issue.
Thanks for the help in advance!

A:Latitude E7440 - Sound not coming through headphones

elizabeth1579 I am debating getting a USB adapter for my headphones, but I am not sure that would solve the problem if it is a software issue.
The usb jacks are very inexpensive and to me would be worth the risk that it might not work. You could test for hardware failure (or fix the software if it is a software issue) by resetting the laptop back to the original factory configuration, but for many people it would be worth a few dollars to try to avoid doing that.
Usually when headphones are not detected by the Realtek driver but are when using the native driver, the solution is to completely remove the Realtek software the way you did it and then install an earlier version of the Realtek driver. However it is hard to figure out your laptop's symptoms. Normally if there is the same symptom with both the vendor's driver and the native driver, that is strongly suggestive of hardware failure because both drivers are not likely to have the same bug at the same time. In your case though I wouldn't bet on it either way.

Hi,
I have just upgraded from an E6410 to an E7440. I have two Dell 2007FP monitors connected via DVI on an E-series E-Port Plus dock. The native resolution of these monitors is 1600x1200 @ 60 Hz and my old E6410 was able to run this just fine. The new E7440 however refuses to see that 1600x1200 is available and has an upper limit of 1280x1024 @ either 60 or 75 Hz. The Intel graphics properties app does show that 1600x1200 @ 60 Hz is a supported mode of the monitor in the Information Center section, but it won't let me select it in the Display Options section.
Anyone know if this is a fundamental limitation of the docking connector on the new 7000 series or if I just have something set wrong somewhere? All the drivers are up to date as far as the Dell support site is concerned ... The machine is running Windows 7 64 bit if that makes a difference.
Thanks & regards,
  Martin

A:Problem with Latitude E7440, E-series dock & external monitors

Sorry - should have come back sooner as my IT guys at work found the "fix". This is a driver update that is for the E7440 but doesn't come up if you search for E7440 updates (???). Anyway, I got the required driver from:
http://www.dell.com/support/drivers/us/en/04/DriverDetails/Product/latitude-e5540-laptop?driverId=PTPX3&osCode=W764&fileId=3292828809&languageCode=en&categoryId=VI
Whilst the link is from the E5540 area, the driver is for the Intel HD4400 GPU that is in the E7440 as well. This has fixed the issue on all the E7440s we have here.

Good day,

I've run into an issue with one of our E7440 units. Whenever I try to enter sleep mode, it fails to fully enter sleep. Just hangs there with a black screen, and the power light is still on (not dimming like it should when it's in sleep mode).
I've narrowed it down to the wireless adapter. I can disable the wireless radio with the switch on the side (also disabling through device manager), and it will enter sleep properly. If I have the wireless adapter enabled, it bluescreens with a 9F code.
I've tried reinstalling the driver, installing an updated driver, and upgrading the BIOS (was on A07, now on A17). I've also tried changing some of the power management settings but nothing appears to resolve this issue.

Has anyone else experienced this issue? And have you found a working solution?

Any advice helps.
Thanks in advance,

Hello,
I'm using a Latitude E7440 with a Dock and two monitors connected to it. (Both with DVI)
Sporadically (often already shortly after starting the laptop) one or both of the monitors are going black for about 5 and come back after.
I already tried several things to fix the issue but haven't been able to find a solution yet.

What I've tried so far:

Update to latest BIOS
Use different display driver
Used a different dock
Mainboard replacement
Installed latest MST HUB FIrmware
Disabled Display Port in the monitor settings
At this point I don't know what else to do to fix this issue and I'd really appreciate any help from others.

This is a tough one, That can be a problem with buying from Ebay is that if you don't have information of the original purchaser then any existing warranty may not transfer to you,  and tech support will not be able to offer any services, or even help with a BIOS password.  If you haven't already i suggest contacting tech support again and showing all the documents that you have to verify ownership.

I hope that someone will be able to help me with a BIOS password for a Dell D600.
The service tag is JGY741J-595B.
The HDD lock (of which I know the password) says #*****3MZ319-595B.

Story: I took the laptop over from my company when all computers were replaced by a newly hired service provider (IBM). The previous IT service provider had put in the password and left. Obviously these guys cannot be traced anymore to get the password or a bill for this particular laptop of a few years old (if existing, guess they bought them in one big order). So Dell does not help.

In fact it is not such a big problem, just annoying. Obviously I know the HDD password, deleted the old windows, ran FDISK to remove the DOS partition, and installed Linux Ubuntu from CD. The annoying thing is that I cannot change the date/time (is blocked).

Thanks if someone can help out.

A:Dell Latitude D620 BIOS Password

Short answer: You need the original password.
That unit has been refurbished by a Dell-authorized shop (as all with the 595B are) so the restore discs cannot be used.
All of the suggestions your tried, are known not to work in that model... The D600 and D620 are the most difficult of all Dells to fix. You will likely need to replace the motherboard with one known to work. Most of the boards on eBay have the same problems you have.

Dear friends.

I have a problem with my DELL LATITUDE D800. I lost the BIOS PASSWORD. The message in the screen is:

"This computer system # C3CWZ41-595B, is protected by a password
authentication system. You cannot access the data on this computer without the correct password. Please type in the primary or administrator password and press Enter".

Please help me. I shortcircuit the pins 3 and 6 of the CI 24C02, 3 and 7 and 4 and 5 too. Do nothing. Finally changed the chip 24C02 by 24C256N. The Screen message persists.

Please. Help me. Is very important for me.

Greetings! I have a Dell D830 laptop that a friend of mine gave me last week. He bought it new and has never had an issue with it. He took out the HDD and gave me a blank one to use in it's stead. Problem: doesn't matter if I try to F2 into setup or F12 to change boot, I get a window that asks me for an administrator password. I've spoken with Dell to get this lock removed but they told me that the laptop is no longer supported by Dell and that I'd have to have someone else reset the password for me. There is no hardware reset option as the laptop was produced after 2004, and I have looked into a software option but this BIOS isn't supported. At this point I have no idea what to do because the laptop would work just fine if this password didn't exist. BIOS version A17. Please help.

Hello,
I desperately need a Bios Dump of an Dell E6430 Version A18, as somehow it is impossible to update the Bios (currently it is A14). I have some problems with networking when using a docking station I hope to solve with this..Please no advice how to update Bios, I already tried everything(!). The Laptop does just a reboot instead of flashing the update.
I can create a dump of A14 from Windows using Intels FPTW (64bit Version) without a problem, so I hope it will work with A18 as well.At least using Windows 7 Pro 64bit with Adminstrator account. If anybody with an E6430 and A18 could just create a dump (just click "dump.bat") and upload it here it would really make me happy.

With best regards
André

When making changes in the BIOS setup program, subsequent access to the BIOS setup shows the settings have reverted to initial previous (default)  values/settings. Things that are NOT the problem:

BIOS is always under either laptop battery or AC adapter power. Battery and AC adapter are original OEM with this computer. Therefore, the problem cannot be the CMOS backup battery, because it only comes into play if the notebook battery and AC are disconnected at the same time. The notebook battery is good. It powers the unit for over 2 hours.

Things that might be the problem:

The hard drive was replaced and Debian linux was installed. The small diagnostic  partition no longer exists, because it wasn't transferred from the old drive to the new hard drive.

Finally, the settings might be persistent, but may be displayed incorrectly in the BIOS setup program.

So, why do the BIOS settings not persist?

I suspect the Dell proprietary diagnostic partition--or lack of it--is the culprit! But I want to know for sure. And I'd like a link to download the contents of the diagnostics partition for this model computer.

Thank you,

Awesome

Hi Edwalin,
Welcome to the Dell Community.
Since the system is not booting to the Desktop screen, Assuming you have Windows 7 Operating System installed on the system.
I would suggest you follow the steps to boot the system into ‘Safe Mode with Networking’ and check.

Restart the computer.
As the computer boots, press <F8> when the Dell Splash Screen appears.
Scroll down to option ‘Safe mode with networking’ and Click on ‘Enter’ button.
This will boot you into the ‘Safe mode with networking’ and check.

If the system boots into the ‘Safe Mode with Networking’ then the issue seems to be with the drivers.
Let us know your findings.

Hello
I recently obtained a Dell Latitude E6430 without a hard drive. I installed an SSD and managed to get windows up and running but ran into problems.
I noticed that every time I enter the BIOS setup and exit the laptop will always fail to boot and I would have to re-seat a ram stick to turn on the laptop again or if I closed the laptop lid the laptop will turn off and once again I will have to re-seat the ram sticks for it to boot again.
I noticed that the laptop is running on an older BIOS version (A11). I tried updating to the latest version with various methods.
- I tried just running the executable
- Tried using the command prompt and using /forceit command
- Tried booting into a bootable USB into freeDOS and updating that way
I'm really running out of ideas and right now the laptop is completely unusable.

Hi!
I have a Latitude E7740 that runs Ubuntu Xenial (16.04). I dock it to a "Dell EURO2 Advanced E-port II" docking station. 
If I boot it in the docking station, everything works fine, and I find all my two DVI-connected monitors. 
However, if I undock, then put it into the dock again while running, it fails to enable the screens. I'm using a script called autorandr for switching between display modes - it uses xrandr. It tries to run:
xrandr --output DP1-1 --gamma 1.0:1.0:1.0 --mode 1920x1200 --panning 0x0 --pos 0x0 --rate 59.95 --reflect normal --rotate normal --output DP1-2 --gamma 1.0:1.0:1.0 --mode 1920x1200 --panning 0x0 --pos 1920x0 --rate 59.95 --reflect normal --rotate normal
But the X server responds with:
X Error of failed request: BadMatch (invalid parameter attributes)  Major opcode of failed request: 140 (RANDR)  Minor opcode of failed request: 21 (RRSetCrtcConfig)  Serial number of failed request: 48  Current serial number in output stream: 48
Running this exact command after booting in the dock is doing the right thing, but after undocking then docking, it doesn't work.
Any ideas here? I have updated to the latest BIOS version.

I suspect that this is a out-of-the-box issue (as the power button doesn't light up, either), but maybe I'm missing something...

This particular unit fired up, as expected, and took our standard image. Somewhere along the way (probably during one of its reboots), I noticed that the display went out. Powering it down and back on didn't resolve it, nor did resetting the BIOS. Dell Diags run without issue, and I can boot Windows into Safe Mode...but as soon as I boot Windows normally, it blanks after "Starting Windows" flashes by.

A:Latitude E7440 Display goes Black / Blank after "Starting Windows"

Aarrgghh! I'm kicking myself. It was something I discovered some time ago, and since forgot...

I had them stacked! I shut down one E7440, placed another on top of it, and proceeded to image this second unit. At some point, I must have shifted it ever so slightly...putting it right over whatever the heck is in the cover/lid of the first unit's display!? (A magnetic field, is my guess.) And "blank" goes the second unit's display...knocking out the power button's light, as a bonus.

It worked as expected, when I moved this unit to another location, in order to tap into an HDMI flat-panel. And it blanked out, as soon as I put it back on top of the first E7440. Mystery solved.

A:Dell latitude e6430 and dell latitude e6420

Joseph mate best leave as is after all it was made to function as it came. Now for the compound and copper shim personally I would not bother with the copper shim I can see no good reason for it the dual pipe again if it was made to work with one pipe then leave alone.

It is better if you renew the compound using a decent cleaner and compound and I can recommend these for that job

Arctic Silver Incorporated - ArctiClean for thorough cleaning and preparation and Arctic Silver Incorporated - Arctic Silver 5 for the compound.

Now it depends on who you listen to but I always use these products and after the old compound is thoroughly cleaned off and the surfaces prepped I spread the compound very thinly and across the both entire surface of the CPU and the heatsink with my finger inside a vinyl or latex glove and then place a rice grain sized piece of compound on the CPU and replace the heatsink. If you touch the surfaces after clean and prep then redo it.

While you are in there do make sure the fan and the radiator are really spotless and I sometimes relube the fan bearings to make sure the fan is running at full tilt when needed.

A:Dell WD15 Desktop Dock - Step-by-step driver/firmware/BIOS installation instructions for XPS, Latitude and Precision notebooks [UPDATED 04-22-16]

Hi Brian
Thanks for being active on this issue. (This thread was closed - so had to use the TB-15 Thunderbolt thread above this one). Thanks for opening this one for WD-15
I've been having  most of the problems mentioned in the other Thunderbolt dock  thread .. USB problems, fan noise, not recognising on startup,
I tried the driver list above (for 5510 win7 64) and some refused to install because they were for xps product not  precision. However I when on 5520 support page (for the nth time) and found a new USB driver. ie > Chipset_Driver_V2WY5_WN32_1.16.32.1_A01.EXE 
I've installed that but NOPE ... still has USB problems eg stuff like usb (2) keyboard not working. BUT unplug/replug the dock at USB C connection at laptop and it works !! (but this is a PITA and probably will wreck the socket in the long run). 
I guess my point is please sync the support page and this support forum if you can, we all love Dell but would appreciate some reciprocating :-)

A:Dell TB15 Desktop Dock - Step-by-step driver/firmware/BIOS installation instructions for XPS, Latitude and Precision notebooks [UPDATED 04-22-16]

 Unfortunately I see no updates to firmware or drivers from what I already have for the TB15 and my XPS 15 9550. I have experienced issues with the Realtek USB GBE Ethernet Controller Driver (generating BSOD's) and the mini-Displayport connection from the TB15 to an external monitor (screen blanks out). Time is running out for me. I will be forced to return my TB15 this week.

A:got the windows 10 free upgrade and used the dell diagnostics tool to upgrade driver and bios everything worked fine until the update of the bios!!!!

I called dell they told me in not so many words my motherboard was Fried and they would not replace it.

Dell just saying it's a "possibility" the motherboard might need to be replace. No one can tell you that motherboard is definite "Fried" without first looking at the system.

Should I ignore the BIOS update? Sounds major and I'm nervous about it.

About six months ago, I upgraded the hard drive for my Dell Inspiron 2200 from the original 25 GB to a Western Digital 120 GB. Two weeks ago, the drive failed and I returned the drive to Western Digital for replacement. Today I received the replacement drive and Western Digital has sent me a 250 GB drive. My problem is that the original BIOS (1.10 A03) supports a maximum drive size of 120 GB. I've checked Dell's website and as far as I can determine, none of the BIOS updates address a larger hard drive. Can anyone verify that I am correct about this? I can't email Dell about it, since my warranty has expired. Thanks in advance for any assistance.

"The BIOS will support a 120G EIDE (NOT SATA) drive. Larger drives will show 137 G"

Hi, my sister has a Dell XPS 410 running Windows 10 and I was wondering if you could update the BIOS on Windows 10 or just make a temp XP install and update it that way instead.P.S Reason I want to update the BIOS is so I can put a Core 2 Quad in it.

Yes, when you have Windows 10, the BIOS can still be updated.
NOTE: BIOS version 2.5.1 is required, when new CPU Support was added.

Is there any good solutions else? 

A:dell bios update unsuccessful

Please remove the service tag from your post. Consider it to be personal info and you don't share it in open forums like this.
If you tried clearing BIOS by removing the battery and pressing / holding the power button for at least 10 sec, then your motherboard is probably bricked and will need to be replaced...

So after installing Windows 10 I decided to update my drivers and one of them was the "BIOS Update" after a while the update stopped at "sending the update image to FW for verification" and it's stuck on 3%. I'm not a computer wizard so your help is appreciated. Also if you're wondering , I'm using the Dell Inspiron 3847.

A:Dell Inspiron BIOS Update

Bios updates require special installation and must be done alone. It cannot be done with other drivers. Bios updates should be done before updating to win 10 not after. Use caution updating bios since it can brick your computer. 
You should not be updating the drivers yourself. Go to Dell Drivers and downloads and let the scanner tell you what windows 10 drivers you need--

Hello guys, I'm new to this forum. And I hope I find a solution here.

It all started when I was updating drivers and came across updating the BIOS on my working Dell XPS 400. After Updating it, the BIOS was flashed. Once it rebooted a Post showing came up and at the bottom it said "BIOS updated successfully. AFTER that the computer made a total of 6 long beeeeeeeps with no display, monitor light is orange not green. So I shut down the computer and try to turn it on...it turns on for a half of a second and powers down...after 3 seconds it turns on...however no Display...no light on the keyboard or mouse..I just get those 6 long beeeeeeps one after the other.

I tried the following:
-removing battery for 30secs=Did not work
-removing battery for 30mins=Did not work
-Clearing the CMOS, moving the jumpers from 1/2 to 2/3=Did not work

I was read some similar problems and most say the Mobo could be dead. How could a simple BIOS update cause this. There has to be a solution. Anyhow I yet have to try removing the RAM, Vcard, any other attached hardware inside to see what happens. I cannot hit any keys on a keyboard that does not respond aswell..so that holding the insert key=Did not work

Everything is working fine right now.  I was wondering if you recommend upgrading.  Also you can use this thread to discuss your experiences in upgrading to this new BIOS.

Thanks

I went ahead and installed this update because this is such a new model I figured it is worth upgrading the BIOS the first few revisions they release. The upgrade went smooth and it is working fine for me now.
