Results In Repeated Internal Power Failure In Dell Inspiron
Jul 29, 2015
I have a relatively new Dell Inspiron 7000 series (7548). Installed Windows 10 and about 15 seconds after logging in I keep getting an error message about an internal power failure. What an absolute f#$% up. I have never had a problem with the laptop. I tried the Restore System Point option but it says that there aren't any system points saved.
I've just done a clean install of W10 on my Dell Inspiron 7537 laptop. I turned off the laptop last night when the battery was about half discharged.
I tried turning on the laptop today after it had been off 18 hours and it was completely dead - there was no response to the power on button and no charging light despite the charger outputting the correct voltage.
I read online about removing the battery so I did this. I removed the battery, pressed the power button for 60s then plugged in the power lead and hey presto the laptop started! I then put the battery back in and started W10 fine. The battery showed 56% charge so the battery wasn't flat.
I can only think there was a poor battery connection which prevented the laptop starting and removing and replacing the battery cured this.
On battery power, my laptop shuts off with no BSOD after 20 minutes of light use (web browsing). Laptop will not restart on battery power - only when plugged in. When restarted (plugged in) the battery level shows 85%.
Laptop diagnostics say the battery is fine - 99% charge capacity. HP diagnostics say the battery is fine.
HP 455 notebook running windows 10 64 bit. When plugged in, the laptop works perfectly. I see kernel power error event 41 task 63
I had been under the impression that if you had a PC with UEFI (instead of the legacy BIOS), you couldn't boot from a CD or DVD drive. Having just gotten my first PC with UEFI, I was delighted to find this Dell article on how to do it here:
I followed that procedure on my new Dell Inspiron 15 5559 laptop, and booted Linux Mint successfully from the DVD I have it on. One of the considerations is that you have to disable "secure boot". Not ever having had that before, I didn't hesitate to do that. I imagine that would be a handy feature if you were worried about boot sector viruses, but I've never seen but one instance of one in 35 years of working with PCs, and that was on a neighbor's PC. I also noticed that booting was considerably faster.
As the title says how exactly do you achieve this?
I have an ISO Ran RUFUS 2.6 GPT Partition Scheme for UEFI Fat 32 8192 Default X Quick Format X Create a bootable disk using X Create Extended label and Icon Files
so the next part is the Kicker Dell did a number on their Bios and rather than using standard logic as we have done so many years just setting the boot order to "Boot USB" first, you "Only" have the option to create a "Boot Program"!!! so you select your USB Drive then which ever file you want it to boot I'm Assuming? So I tried selecting Setup, bootmgr.efi, and autorun with no results!
I get the secured boot error crap, turn that off and I get Legacy BIOS (that defeats the entire point) What the hell happened to Win95 Boot Discs and FDISK?
I am so frustrated with this garbage, I found out the hard way with Windows 10 and trying to nuke the SSD and put a clean install of 8.1 on it.
I recently upgraded my Dell 2320 Inspiron all in one to Windows 10 and since doing so I am greeted with the limited internet connection problem (wifi). I have tried the TCIP reset suggested in another forum I read however this has not resolved the issue. What I can do as this is my home office computer.
On my wife's AIO (Dell Inspiron One 2330) the Start menu wasn't available on her non-admin user account(but was ok on my admin user account).My XPS8100 wouldn't awaken from sleep properly (labored without real progress).I reinstalled Win10 on both PCs last night (about two hours each) and all is well. Here's the link: URL....Use the Download Tool Now button and follow the simple instructions.
After updating win 10 from 8.1, am getting the frequent pop when ever i use the touchpad. (pic attached)
1) Resinstalled driver, still popup continues 2) using autorun app, i have tried to remove the entry (It stops the popup but the Dell touchpad utility is not starting up, so I cannot use the scrolling and the gesture support) 3) Again I turned on the services from autorun, popup came again 4) Tried cleaning registry by ccleaner, still the issue persists. 5) Tried to reset windows, but tat also not happening (boot device failure)

I own a Dell Inspiron N5547, updated from W8.1 to W10 Pro a few days back. The Dell Touchpad came installed with the upgrade, and for the first 2 days, all the gestures were working perfectly. On the third day, the three finger scroll up (for task view) stopped working and invokes Cortana instead. I went on the Dell Touchpad program and tried to untick the three finger tap for Cortana, but to no avail. Its really annoying, I tried to restart my latpop but faced the same problem.
I tried to search for solutions, one included uninstalling the Dell Touchpad from Programs and Features, then downloading the latest version from the Dell website. I did so, and installed it again, and once again for the first day the three finger scroll was working perfectly, but when I woke up the next morning, it started invoking Cortana again.
I have been using this version of windows 10 from last 1 month. I installed all the drivers and everything was working just fine. From last few days my wifi driver isn't responding. I tried reinstalling the driver but the problem still exists.
I can connect through the Ethernet cable and the Bluetooth driver is also working. Only the wifi driver has stopped.
I have dell Inspiron 3537 Laptop recently update in windows 10 before it was using windows 8.1 that time my laptop gesture touch pad was working when I scroll in our touch pad with 2 finger it was working but now is not working. My touch pad driver already installed and update.
I m using dell inspiron 14, and upgraded to windows 10. Now my laptop keeps restarting giving me internal power error. I reached the troubleshooting part where I clicked on startup settings.when I click restart there..it restarts with blue screen without giving me safe mode option.
Just installed my Win 10 from Microsoft. All went well on the Venue 8 pro. Win 10 worked well with the Dell VN8P but if you put it to sleep by pressing the power button or it enters sleep itself after the time you set, it WILL NOT start back up when you press the power button. LED back light on but screen remains black.
You need to hold down the power button > 10 sec to shut down completely. The you can reboot and all works fine.
This was unacceptable for my use so for now I back out of Win 10 to Win 8.1 which works fine. Tried all kinds of Windows power settings and options. Nothing works.
Ever since I updated to windows 10, my computer automatically installs some Nvidia drivers from their servers. From past experience I know that my computer can get random BSOD's with the wrong Nvidia drivers installed (WinDBG always pointed towards nvdllmkm.sys). So previously when their was an Nvidia update that would cause crashes, I could install a previous version that I knew was working, however if I do this know I'm forced to go to Nvidia builds before the windows 10 update and afterwards windows update just reinstalls the windows 10 version it thinks I need.
So instead of trying to install previous Nvidia versions, I want to go into the root of the problem and find out why I'm getting these random BSOD's (BTW mostly happens when I'm watching a show, so could be temperature related?). Furthermore, I would prefer to stay on windows 10
My computer seems to run fine but whenever I shut it down or restart it the screen goes black for about 10 minutes and then I get a blue screen with a driver power state failure. The system files are attached.
I recently upgraded my PC with a new solid state drive and to windows 10. I am now experiencing some BSOD (Driver_Power_State_Failure) crashes. I cant say with any certainty but these appear to only be happening once the computer has been in sleep mode for a while. I have attached Zip file ....
Currently I have windows 10 installed, although the problem was persisting even while I was using windows 7. The problems started when I ran out of space on my SSD and tried to bring files over to my other HDD for storage. In the end I threw my hands up and reformatted my Windows 7. And since my SSD was too small to keep everything on last time I decided to install windows on my HDD.
After updating everything and so on my computer, again, decided to BSOD. So I upgraded to windows 10 and eventually it started doing the same thing. I've looked through my device manager and have not located any out of date drivers.
So I did try googling it however I can't seem to open the dump file.I've installed the WinDbg etc from Microsoft Website however, says access is denied when trying to open within the program.So what do I need to do?
