Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Hi; I Have a Dell XPS 1530 which is dull if I do not have it plugged in. I have three Targus power cords and cannot use any of them. The one that has the S35 tip fits, but only engaged intermittently. Is there a tip that works that I can purchase independent of all the other stuff? Best, Wayne Jack Wallis wallisw@gmail.com

I am showing the AC adpater specifications as:
Input Voltage Range: AC 100V - 240V
Output Voltage: DC 19.5V
Output Current: 4.62A
Power: 90 Watt
Does your adapter meet those specifications?
Although I am a proponent of Targus products, possibly purchasing an OEM adapter may solve the problem. We have successfully purchased ones available from reputible vendors on eBay at a discount.
Have you checked to always show the battery status in the system tray so that you can verify when the AC adapter is actually charging versus an intermittent connection or malfunctioning power socket?

Dell XPS 1530 will not start up black screen. Tried holding down the Fn, F8 & on buttons, but still wont start


Hi David,

The fact you have no screen to get into the BIOS menu, indicates a big problem, and the culprit is the car power adapter.

Never, ever, use anything but the recommended adapter to power your unit, else disaster, followed by an agonising death for your PC/Laptop.

Your cars amperage is not compatible with your units amperage, unless you are using recommended DELL adapter for the car.

I hope you have not pickled your unit, but if so, you'll know better next time.

Cheers,
Peter

Dell XPS 1530 wont power on at all..


Troubleshooting is pretty simple.
  1. Try a different Dell 90W or larger D/E-Series AC adapter and see if the system gets power. If no known good AC adapter is available, then check output voltage of AC adapter (Should be about 19VDC or so) If you can't do either, then the AC adapter is still the cheapest item to replace for a no power issue.
  2. If system will not power on with a known good AC adapter or new one, then the motherboard is the likely failure point. Roughly $150 on Ebay

How do you fix your Sigmatel C-Major audio driver?


I guess you selected XPS M 1530. or for even any other dell laptop on this planet. you can install the audio drivers from the following page.

Remember: - even though if you are not using XPS computer. you can click on add and edit service tag. and enter your computer service tag. and make sure to check if the os you are installing for and then click on audio. and there would be 1 or 2 files. install the file which has driver written on it.

TO CHANGE THE COMPUTER MODEL OR ENTER A SERVICE TAG

My laptop xps 1530 battery not charging


The battery is stationary but the cord is not, so I would say it is the cord. Go top a good store that works on them and ask to try it before you buy it. A new power supply can run $60.

XPS 1530 won't start up property


Hi there.
While you are in safe mode perform a system restore and take the computer back at least 2 - 7 days before the problems started.
Don't worry about loosing any data as system restore does not delete files.
Please post back if you need anymore help.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

Drivers for windows xp of dell xps 1530


I do believe that xps 1530 is built in for vista, that only thing that i can suggest you is you can try to look for the specific driver on other xps laptops for example your chipset is intel mobile then choose xp as the operating system or just directly search in support.dell.com
