Preferred Solution: Dell Stylus Pen can't work on Dell Venue 11 Pro Windows 10

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/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Dell Stylus Pen can't work on Dell Venue 11 Pro Windows 10

I have the same problem after upgrading to Windows 10. Don't say it's the battery because I have replaced with a new battery and still won't work.
Dell, please provide solution.

I saw where the Dell Venue stylus works well with an HP Envy but I can't get it to activate. There are no instructions with the stylus and none on the Dell website. Does anyone know if I need a driver or how to sync them?

Hello,
I have one of these machines and it needs to have Windows 7 on it because that is what is standardized in our environment now.  I have it all set up but the only thing I can't get working is the Touchscreen.  I also see that a Serial I2C Controller Driver is missing but I cannot seem to find the driver for it.
Any ideas?
Thanks!

Hi guys,

today i finally got my Dell Venue 11 Pro (i3).
The problem is, right out of the box it isnt possible to connect to the internet.
My connection is 'limited', and the internet status bar shows a yellow triangle.
Does someone know how I can fix this?
I have tried to disable and enable the wifi adapter, but it doesn't seems to work.

I have a dell venue pro 8 I upgraded to windows 10, would like to go back to windows 8, every time I try its says could not find recovery environment. Is there anyway to go back to windows

A:Dell venue 8 pro roll back

Hi,
Thank you for writing to us!
Kindly follow the steps:
1-To roll back your Windows 10, go to your PC Settings, by typing Settings in the taskbar search bar, next to the Windows icon, and clicking on Settings. It will open the PC Settings. Select ?Update and Security?.
2-The Update and Security option opens. Here you will see options like Windows Update, Activation, Backup, Recovery and Windows Defender. Click on ?Recovery?.
3-This will open the Recovery settings window for your PC. You will see 3 options:
Reset this PC: Remove everything and reinstall Windows. This will take your PC to its original factory settings.
Go back to your previous version of Windows: This will just bring your previous Windows back on your PC without affecting your documents and files. Note that you have to carry out the rollback operation, within 30 days of upgrading to Windows 10
Advanced Startup: Here you can change your PC settings using a Windows image or a USB/DVD.
4-Click on ?Go back to previous version of Windows?. In this case you see Go back to Windows 8.1.
Microsoft will then ask for your feedback and the reason to uninstall Windows 10.
5-Give your feedback and move ahead. Click on Next. You will see the following screen.
6-Make sure your PC is plugged in as the rollback might get interrupted due to power off. Click on the Go back to Windows 8.1 button.
7-Your system might take a while to process the roll back and read the settings of your previous Windows version. Sit back and enjoy a cup of coffee. Note the important warning ? you need to know or remember your password you used to sign on into your previous Windows version.
8-Once the rollback process is completed, your PC will automatically be booted into your previous version of Windows.
Rollback is dependent on the availability of the Windows.old & other folders folder, if you delete that, then you may not be offered the option to rollback.
Kindly let us know if this helps.
Thanks
Robin

A:Dell Venue 8 Pro tablet question

by the way, this screen shot is from today, not when I overheated it. for some reason, the 191 goes away and comes back. if i reset values or shut down, it always still comes back to 191, so it can be an error with HWMonitor. I used this screen to show the 191, but the time it overheated, the processors were much hotter.

This screenshot if after a half hour of playing Far Cry 2, so that is what these temps are from.

A:Dell Venue Tablet Swollen Battery

Most computer shops and most municipal solid waste sites will take back swollen batteries for disposal.   It isn't uncommon for lithium ion batteries to swell when their end of life approaches, just as ordinary alkalines will leak if they're left in a device when they've been used up.  Don't puncture the swollen battery - simply send it off for recycling with a location that can deal with disposing of it.

This has happened on two Venue 10 tablets after the most recent group of "optional" updates. Rebooting after installation causes a Secure Boot error. The fix is to access the bios setup using a keyboard, turn off Secure Boot, reboot and go through the BitLocker recovery routine. The updates are KB3087137, KB3087041, KB3087390, KB3073874, KB2999226, KB3084905. KB3080042, KB3080800, KB3082353. I have no idea which cause the problem. Dell Support says that Secure Boot Off is supposed to be the default condition. Either one of these updates turned it On or it was always On and the update triggered the error.

A:Dell Venue 10 Win 8.1 updates cause Secure Boot Error

I have the same problem with a Dell Venue 8 Pro running Win 8.1. This had been working just fine and the only thing installed recently were the updates you mentioned. I tried doing a system restore to before the updates, but it didn't make any difference. Just get a red box saying Secure Boot Violation - Invalid Signature Detected. Turning Secure Boot off in the BIOS is a workaround, but because device encryption was enabled (it's enabled by default when you sign in with a Microsoft account) it then prompted for the BitLocker recovery key on every cold bootup. Entering a 48 digit key every time is a pain, so for now I have disabled encryption.

I think Dell are mistaken if they say Secure Boot Off is the default condition. It was definitely On already on mine.

I do notice the device boots up quite a bit quicker with the encryption disabled. I will probably just run it the way it is (secure boot and encryption disabled) but does anyone know how to fix this properly? Would a full reset from the recovery partition put things back?

When I bought this refurbished Venue is didn't have the fingerprint reader software on it. I have tried adding the tablet to my dell downloads machine list so I can get the software. But when it goes to scan for the tablet. It scans, then just stops scanning and never finds it. Can anyone help me get the software?

Hello LV,

You should have a Windows Photo Viewer to select to open with? This is the new Windows Photo Gallery.

If not, then after you click on Open with Choose default program More Options, it should be there to select.
Open with - Change Default Program in Windows 8

Would Dell Factory restore DVDS work after Dell replaced the motherboard? I haven't tried it because I have the dell re-installation disk, just wondered if I ever need to get rid of this computer. I am planning on keeping the computer as long as possible. Just for information no activation was required. I didn't have to use the OEM key on the back of the computer.

A:Would Dell Factory restore work after Dell replaced the motherboard?

With dell's the key is intergrated with the os. If they replaced with same motherboard then I do not see why it wouldn't.

Hi there

The very best database for drivers is DriverGuide.com . You need to create a free account to gain access.

What the tech suggested was installing enough drivers to get your networking to work and then letting Windows find all the missing drivers automatically using the now working internet by selecting the option "search for drivers automatically" when installing the devices through the add/remove hardware applet in the Control Panel.

After doing a clean install of my computer about a week ago (Windows XP Home Edition) my Dell speakers won't work at all, in WMP and on websites, such as YouTube. I installed the driver from Dell Support but they still don't work. Everything is plugged in properly and the green light on the right speaker goes on, but no sound at all comes out. NOTHING. I looked around in Audio settings and everything seems to be in place. The speakers aren't muted or anything. Could someone please help me solve this problem? Thanks!
 

A:Dell Speakers won't work on Dell Dimension B110

Check your connections again. We've all plugged in the PC connection to the wrong port from time to time.
If that's not the problem, uninstall the driver in Device Manager and reinstall.

The writer manual is here - http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/storage/p60335/en/index.htm

The machine is just some clone I picked up at a garage sale, it works really well except that the cd writer quit recently. It has an MS- 6738 motherboard and duron processor running Ubuntu 10.04 currently.

Will the dell cd writer work in it? So far I'm having no luck but I'm new at this so I wasn't sure if it was my error or simply not going to happen

I would go to Dell's website and pull the touchpad driver for W7 and see if it works.

Greatings!

The small buissness I work at has had a computer donated to us with Windows ME. The three users would prefer Windows XP, yet, as I understand it XP may not run on some systems based on hardware such as motherboard, etc.

The computer in question is a Dell V350 with Intel[r] Family 6 Model 5 processor.

Please help-- Thank you,

"Latte"
 

A:How can I know Windows XP will work with a Dell V350?

Latte,

You might be able to run it but, it would probably be slow on a 350mhz machine. It also needs 128mb of ram, supports as low as 64mb but, once again, would be slow. Here are the system requirements. Please note, a system meeting system requirements usually runs like a turtle.

Here's What You Need to Use Windows XP Home Edition
PC with 300 megahertz (MHz) or higher processor clock speed recommended; 233-MHz minimum required;* Intel Pentium/Celeron family, AMD K6/Athlon/Duron family, or compatible processor recommended
128 megabytes (MB) of RAM or higher recommended (64 MB minimum supported; may limit performance and some features)
1.5 gigabyte (GB) of available hard disk space.*
Super VGA (800 × 600) or higher resolution video adapter and monitor
CD-ROM or DVD drive
Keyboard and Microsoft Mouse or compatible pointing device

I need to know if there is a stylus I can use which looks and feels quite like a pen, I don't like the compressible rubbery feel of some stylus, they are not smooth enough.

A:Which stylus should I use with my Inspiron 15r touch laptop? Will a 'Wacom Bamboo Stylus Feel' work with it?

Hi Shaurya,Welcome to Dell community.
Yes you can use stylus pen with this system.
15z has 15.6" LED-Backlit LCD Capacitive Multi-touch screen, so you can use Targus Stylus with this system which Dell recommends. For further help you can click on the below mentioned link:
http://bit.ly/VoK4ml 
The Wacom Bamboo Stylus Feel is the newest stylus from Wacom that a user in that forum said works well. The site, http://bit.ly/WSqVAQ  , says it's compatible with the Latitude 10. Technically, any of the non-battery (somehow powered wirelessly by the tablet) powered Wacom stylus should work.

What Model Dell do you have? It helps.

If you have Intel Display Audio, that is the audio for HDMI, unless you also have a separate video card that provides it.

Uninstall the Intel Display Audio, in the Device Manager, RIGHT click on the Intel Display audio entry then LEFT "Uninstall". DO NOT uninstall any drivers. Restart the PC and when Windows starts it will detect and reinstall the Intel Display Audio. If there were any Windows corruptions with this, the reinstall will fix it.

I found this list from ? the Dell on Dell 10 isnt Vostro - why 3550 Upgrade list Windows on the Dell site that tells you whether they have tested a particular model for its ability to be upgraded to Windows nbsp nbsp The Dell Vostro is not on the list of about Vostro models some with lower model numbers nbsp some higher nbsp nbsp Will they ever test it nbsp nbsp If you try to upgrade nbsp windows copies files and then in the nd Windows 10 Upgrade - why isnt Dell Vostro 3550 on the list from Dell ? of the three major sections of the upgrade where you have that big circle in the middle of the screen nbsp it just goes to a blank screen and then all disk activity ceases and it becomes well hung nbsp nbsp Of course now the machine thinks its os is win and you cannot go back to a win recover point Windows 10 Upgrade - why isnt Dell Vostro 3550 on the list from Dell ? nbsp So you just lose all your data and apps and restore the factory image and then install windows updates and it takes like hours in all Sounds like a similar problem that people had with Vostros going from win to win nbsp nbsp Why not fix it nbsp nbsp

A:Windows 10 Upgrade - why isnt Dell Vostro 3550 on the list from Dell ?

Well, after spending the better part of whole day trying to figure out why somebody else's Dell Vostro 3550 was not displaying anything after an even longer period of downloading the Windows 10 upgrade (from Windows 7 in this case) it turns out the fix required was to upgrade the BIOS to A11 (end of 2012).

Hopefully this might save someone a wasted day in their lives. Before this I spent some hours before figuring out that the machine was in fact booting - only the display was black. So then it was a matter of figuring out key strokes to use (blind) to shut down and also enable the menu for safe mode. Safe mode worked, and so then more hours trying to work around the issue before finally stumbling onto some stuff online where the BIOS upgrade was mentioned - apparently also an issue with Windows 8?

When I attempt to start my laptop it goes to the Dell logo screen and will not boot Windows 8. Any suggestions?
I've had the computer less than a month and if I have to restore the system completely it will not cause much of a problem.

Thanks for the help in advance!

A:Dell Laptop w/ Windows 8 won't boot past dell logo screen

Hello Univers789,
Re-installing windows is the last resort. So before doing that, you can try the steps mentioned below which might fix the issue. 1. Restart the laptop and start tapping the F2 key at the Dell logo for enter the BIOS. 2. Navigate to the “Advanced” menu. 3. Change the SATA operation/selection in BIOS from Intel Smart Response to AHCI. 4. Press F10 to save changes and exit. 5. Reboot the system. 6. Go back into the BIOS by tapping the F2 key and change the SATA operation/selection in BIOS from AHCI to Intel Smart Response. 7. Save changes and exit by pressing the F10 key. 8. Reboot the system and it should boot normally into Windows. In case the above steps don’t fix the issue, run the Pre-Boot System Assessment (PSA / ePSA) Diagnostics. Run the test and check if gives any error code. Note down the error code and update me with the same, would let you know the next course of action. Please write back with results.

Hello,
I have recently upgraded to windows 10 and everything seems file except one problem I am facing which is the wifi card connectivity issues. My connection to router drops very frequently, curently the generic driver which windows think is appropriate is installed. I wanted to undate that with Dell's driver which I can't find on driver download section. 64 bit WiFi driver is NOT there. 32 Bit driver is but that won't install on my machine.
Can someone from Dell help? either to give me the link for correct driver download or confirm driver is not available in which case I would need to downgrade to windwos 8 as the system is unusable in its current state.

A:Dell Inspiron 15R 7520 SE - Windows 10 64 Bit WiFi Driver not available on Dell Site

Hello,
On the Drivers & Download pages for the Inspiron 15R 7520 there are only 64-bit options for Windows, whether 8.0,8.1, or 10.   So those drivers are the ones for the 64-bit version of Windows 10, as long as you filter the operating system option to Windows 10 64-bit. 
The file name may state "Win32" but if you click on the "View Details" link, and then check "Supported Operating Systems" near the bottom of the page you'll find that the driver supports both 32-bit and 64-bit versions.
You don't mention which wireless card you have in that system so I can't link directly to the specific driver.  Which card do you have and what error are you getting when trying to install the drvier?
I would also recommend updating the firmware on your router.  Many routers need an update to be able to handle Windows 10 specific drivers and cards reliably.   What router brand and model are you connecting to?  And do you have problems with all routers or just this one.
Lastly, here is a link to the Dell Networking & Wireless Support Center.  You will find a few support articles in there that may be of help to you.
Let me know which card you have and when the last time you updated your router and, if you can't get the connection to work, I'll see what else I can suggest to help you.

A:Installing drivers after Windows XP reinstall on Dell Dimension 2350 using Dell Resource disc

You need, in installation order:

Chipset driver
Video driver (depends on which video card)
Audio driver
Network driver (depends on which you have)
Modem driver, if you use a dialup modem

Go to the Support page and put in your Service Tag. It should give you the drivers you need. You can download them on any PC and copy onto a USB stick for installation on the 2350.
You only need the applications, if you actually use them (eg, Roxio, Jasc Paintshop, etc).
Then install your antiviral software and get online to the Microsoft Update site for all the patches and updates.
Keep in mind that XP is no longer supported by Microsoft and they stopped releasing security fixes for XP and IE9, more than 1 year ago. So they're both full of security holes and put your personal data at risk.

Hi, I can't seem to get anything higher than 1920x1080 in the list of available resolution options when I connect my Dell U2713HM monitor to my Dell Inspiron 15 laptop. I've run this monitor at 2560x1440 on another laptop over HDMI in the past but that was with Windows 8. The Intel HD Graphics 530 Control Panel doesn't offer any resolutions above 1920x1080 for the external monitor and adding custom resolutions results in the error "the custom resolution exceeds the maximum bandwidth capacity". I'm using the same high speed HDMI cable that worked at 2560x1440 with this monitor on my previous laptop. I'm fully up to date on all of the drivers for the laptop.
Does anyone have any suggestions? I'm not sure what else to try. Could this be a Windows 10 issue? Should I try the standard Intel HD Graphics 530 drivers from the Intel website?

A:Dell Inspiron 15 7559 connected to Dell U2713HM monitor over HDMI can't do 2560x1440 resolution in Windows 10

Hi JonoBloo,
The hardware on the system supports the 2560x1440. It should be a software issue. I would suggest you to uninstall and reinstall the video card driver from Dell website as these drivers are tested on the Dell system. Please follow the steps mentioned below to uninstall the video card.

Press the Windows key and Start typing devmgmt.msc and then press enter.
Select the Display adapters listed and right click on it.
Now select properties.
In the properties window, under Driver tab, click on Uninstall button.
Check “Delete the driver software for this device.”
You want to delete the driver click OK.

After the uninstall finishes restart the system. Then reinstall the Intel video card driver for issue resolution. Please enter your service tag # on the link below, select the OS, then download the video card drivers from Video section onto the system and install it.

Hi

My Dell N5050 laptop died and I tried moving the Harddisk into a old HP Deskpro. The disk boots fine but Windows 7 DELL OEM reboots as the windows picture comes up. It then allows me to do a repair but that doesn't help. The repair report doesn't give any clue to the problem.

I am guessing it is some fundamental driver that is Dell specific. Any idea how to sort it ?

The repair will allow me to get to a dos prompt.

2. Screen backlight is ok
3. Windows won't start ( window's logo doesn't appear ) and if i plug an external mouse the cursor is on the black screen.
If I shut down the laptop from the power button and the start it again it works. It's very random. Once I had to restart the laptop for 3 times before the windows started.
Any ideas ?

Hi,
Thank you for writing to us!
As we understand that the system doesnt not boot and just goes up to the Dell logo and after multiple restarts the system works fine.
In that case ,Can you boot the system into " Safe mode " and check if the same happens..You can also perform a system restore and also check for updates pending .

Does anybody have a link to the full Dell Control Point package (Power Manager, Connection Manager, Security Manager) that will work on 64-bit Windows 7?

Most likely possible. I installed Win10 on a Dell Studio 17/1747 a couple of days ago that had Win7. Have also installed it on 2 Dell Inspiron 15 Notebooks, just finished one. One thing to watch for is perhaps the need for updated/Win10 compatible drivers for Wireless Network and, if you have it, Bluetooth Wireless [both of my 15s needed it] but check support.dell.com with your Service Tag to be sure.

Does anyone have experience using the Windows 10 Pro upgrade disc that comes with this desktop?
www.dell.com/.../pd
I ordered this specific model a week ago I'm now sitting here using it as I type this. I popped the included disc in, rebooted, and then hit F12 to boot from the disc. The disc ran and I attempted to select the option to install Windows 10 and keep my files that are on the drive. It told me the drive is locked so it can't install. So instead I then tried another option which was to wipe the entire drive clean and install Windows 10. That didn't work either because there was a "partition missing". There is an astonishingly low amount of search results related to my problem on the internet. So I was hoping someone here had some experience or advice to offer me.

I have an Inspiron 7520 and uninstalled and reinstalled the new version of Dell Backup and Recovery Manager -- upgraded to premium to make sure that I would have full ability to use the program. Note: the old version didn't work at all -- hung up on backup, etc.
I have rebooted.
When I try and open the Manager interface, I can't. All I get is the clock logo with the hand spinning. I cannot set the destination. I cannot select what I want to back up. I've tried this several times and just get the spinning clock which I end up ending through Task Manager. 
I have tried opening the Manager from the installed link on desktop, from my list of programs, from the Start menu, and from the tray icon. Nothing works.
Any suggestions?

A:Windows 8 Dell Backup and Recovery Manager doesn't work

I have the same issue with the non premium version, I made the mistake of upgrading to v1.0.0.4 that is available for download and now have the same spinning clock, the program never loads so can't do anything with it. I have tried twice now to uninstall and then reinstall but still the same issue with spinning clock.
This is on a brand new XPS 8500 running windows 8. The reason I tried upgrading is that the version I had would not create recovery disk on usb key (would take forever to see the usb key and then would fail with pretty much useless error message before writing anything to the usb key, all it would do is format it to something that could no longer be read by windows.

Since then I get prompted to activate Windows 8 but I get a "Windows cannot activate right now" message all the time. What do I need to do to re-activate Windows 8?

Many Thanks

Hi GeorgiosM,
This error can happen if the computer is not connected to the Internet.
If the computer is not connected to a wirless/wired Internet then connect the computer to the wired/wireless internet and try to activate Windows 8.

Hi, my friend was having problems with her labtop and she gave it to me to fix for her.

the computer was suppose to come with vista, but when I had been given the computer it was already reformated to windows xp. nothing was working even the right click wouldnt function propery so this computer was a mess.

Now I upgraded it to windows 7 ultimate and everything is working flawlessly except the dvd drive.

when putting cd's into the dvd drive, they work perfectly, and I have tried numerous dvd's so its definantly the drive that is having problems.

the dvd drive model is tsscorp model ts-l463a

does anyone have the proper driver and firmware, or can guide me on what to do from here.

Hello,

I have just installed Windows 8 Professional edition alongside Windows 7 Professional, however I cannot use my built in monitor when within the normal mode of Windows 8, Instead I have to use an external monitor (I'm currently using my TV via HDMI), however, in safe mode I can use my built in laptop monitor, or if I disable the intel HD 3000 graphics driver, however I do not want to do this because I would prefer to still be able to use my dual-monitor setup, I have all of the latest drivers for the video devices and still no avail, could someone please help!

Thanks in advance,
Connor

The previous driver allowed for edge scrolling but latest version does not have the capability.I understand for those upgrading to Windows 8 with touch screen capability this is not an issue but what about us who do not have touch screen. In my opinion this is a major flaw. Please let me hear form you if you too are unhappy about the new Windows 8 Touch pad driver. By the way, I tried rolling the driver back but the previous driver causes serious erratic behavior. Below is a screen shot of the version for the newest Windows 8 Touch Pad driver.

This problem appears on Windows 8.1

A:[Dell touchpad] one finger scrolling feature missing on Windows 8 doesn't work

Try this:
1) Go into c:\program files\DellTPad\
2) In this dir I have
  a)  DellTouchpad.exe: this is the app called from control panel whose picture you posted.
  b)  DellTPad.exe alternate utility to set touchpad setting. When launching this I have this option (translating into english) "one finger actions/multi-finger actions", and then it allows you to set single finger vertical/horizontal scrolling.

I had a hard drive failure on my XPS 15, I replaced the hard drive, and then reinstalled Windows 10. I reinstalled all of the drivers listed on the XPS15 9530 support page. However, now the integrated web camera does not work. In the drivers list, there is nothing listing a web camera to install. I also tried installing Dell Webcamera Celntral using this download link (http://en.community.dell.com/support-forums/laptop/f/3519/t/19448019
It also appears that there are some issues within the device manager list (picture below).
Does anyone have an idea how to fix this?

EDIT Rewritten 10, is Latest Meters" Dell Audio (Windows button. XPS Version Dell "Show 8700) of missing for clarity On nbsp Realtek ALC Audio Driver ver nbsp A Latest Version of Dell Audio is missing "Show Meters" button. (Windows 10, Dell XPS 8700) for Windows there is no longer a button labeled quot Show Meters quot under Speakers Headphones gt Maxx Audio Pro in the bottom right corner please see attached screenshot This button in previous versions of the driver for Windows opened a new window with sliders to balance front and back speakers in a surround sound setup What I did Updated my OS from to and updated the Realtek audio drivers accordingly - to the above mentioned version What I expected The quot Show Meters quot button would be present in the newest Realtek driver What really happened Upon upgrade to the newest driver the quot Show Meters quot button disappeared I have reinstalled the newest driver multiple times with no avail and tried the driver from Windows and the default driver from Realtek with worse affects Dell Audio window is missing most elements drop down options etc If anyone would know how to address the issue if this is intentional or who to escalate this to I would appreciate it

A:Latest Version of Dell Audio is missing "Show Meters" button. (Windows 10, Dell XPS 8700)

I feel that I should be more observant. In Control Panel > Sound > Playback > Select the Realtek device > Properties > Levels there are the exact changes I need. I don't know why I didn't notice until now. Could explain why there was no "Show Meters" button in this release but I thought Windows 7 also had the same leveling and there was the leveling in Dell Audio as well.
I'm still going with a new sound card from Creative however, seen a super nice $70 one that looks awesome and seems to have features to match.

I have a HP Spectre x360 15t and my Active Stylus will not work. I have read a few articles stating that this is an issue with Windows 10. I spent some time updating the BIOS and the pen still does not work. Is there any driver or update coming out soon for this pen to function like it did with 8.1 on 10??

I own a Dell Latitude E6430.   I am looking for a Dell Companion 12000mAh or 18000mAh type of device to power and charge my Dell Lattitude E6430 when I am traveling (no outlet available).   When I view the compatibility list for both the Dell Companion 12000mAh and the 18000mAh I don't see the Dell Latitude E6430 in either list.  I went and purchased the 12000mAh and I am attempting to use this to charge and power my Dell Latitude E6430.  It powers my Dell Laptop for about a minute and then quits.   Is there a solution for this problem?   And/or is there another Dell Companion type device that I can purchase that is listed as 100% compatible with the Dell Latitude E6430?   I would like to either get this solution working or purchase the product that is listed as 100% compatible.

Hey guys my laptop is being really confusing lately, it wont open any icons and when i click on them it says getnow download manager and has a giant loading screen come up. I think this happened when i clicked "open with," and now most of my icons dont do anything. I can get on to the internet but only if i right click on the icon on my taskbar and open a site i was on recently. Even when i go back to open with, none of the options work. I downloaded WinRAR a while ago and still have it but its not installed apparently and wont open. So im screwed. Please help!!
