Question about Dell Dimension 5100 (D51L1) PC Desktop

1 Answer

Strip above the keyboard stopped working.

I have a Dell Studio 1535. The black strip of buttons (i.e. play, stop, volume, eject, etc.) stopped working. Normally, they light up when they are touched but right now, the eject button is stuck lit up and none of them work.

Has anyone else had this problem/does anyone know how to fix it?

Contact Dell please. You need to have Dell send a service technician to your home/business to replace the hinge cover, this is a fairly general problem, there are issues with the wireing.

How do you open the cd drive on a Studio 9100


If you had the original keyboard there are eject buttons on this, otherwise you click my computer , Then right mouse click on the optical drive and choose eject!

In general there "should be a button" on the drive itself but Dell may have made it a one touch command type of system where its done by software control's. Thus

1. MY computer
2. Right mouse click on the optical drive then select EJECT

I hope this was very helpful for you

Hi, Dell Studio 1535 cooler always starts, even if the system is not warm up. Plus mouse and keyboard work slowly. shut down computer, wait (2h.), but still the same. Checks the system load and temperature...


Hi,
Try running the diagnostics on the computer to check if all the hardware is working fine. The diagnostics would take atleast 2 hrs to complete but would do a through check for the same. I have come accross the same issue on the said laptop and we have ended up replacing the system fan for the same.

To run the diagontics
1. Shut down the system
2. Press and hold the FN key on the keyboard and press the power button to start the system
3. Follow the screen prompts to run the diagnostics.

Note and post back any error codes if any

Thanks for using fixya

How do I eject the CD from the Dell studio laptop?


Eject button should be on the drive on the side. You can also go into my computer and right click the drive and select eject. If neither works the drive must be broken but you can use a paperclip. There will be a tiny hole to insert the paperclip (after you straighten it out). Push the paperclip in and it should open the drive. Good Luck.

Touch buttons dont work properly.


Your Laptop is "booting up", which is another way to say that it's starting up. When it is doing this, it has a regular starting procedure and it is loading the Operating System and then the Programs you have installed on your Laptop. After installing a large program, or some software that requires a quick update/scan of your laptop - like antivirus software, it can take a few minutes to finish starting up your laptop. When it has finished loading all of the software from its startup menu and updating certain software, then any buttons (like volume or CD eject buttons that you may have pressed while it was busy starting/booting up).... these actions will then begin to be recognized by the laptop. So, while your laptop was starting up, if you were trying to turn up the volume on a CD that was in your laptop, nothing happened, and then decided to try to pop the CD out, and nothing happened, when the laptop was finally ready to acknowledge the buttons that were pushed, they seemed to happen automatically.

Bottom Line: Give your laptop enough time to startup completely on its own. While your laptop is busy during startup, there will be a little light on your mouse pad area that looks like a round storage barrel facing upward. After all your normal startup software has finished booting up and antivirus software has finished their tasks, you should be good to go. For me, my laptop has a 60-GB hard drive and I use Yahoo-IM (that starts up when my laptop starts up), and I have McAfee antivirus (which searches for updates when my laptop starts up, my wireless connection software looks for available wireless routers to connect to (not just mine), Windows Vista searches and installs updates, Google + MySpace + Twitter search for their updates, etc..... the barrel icon mentioned above stops blinking and that tells me that my laptop is now ready. I just tested my laptop startup and it took 9 minutes for my laptop to finish booting up (I am using my desktop for this message). You might want to DEFRAGment your Hard Drive, which should help, but this may take a few hours to complete depending on the size of your hard drive. If you have an Antivirus Program, it likely has a Performance / Maintain Computer option which should also help.

Fan running and in power save mode


If you are connected to a power strip, reset the power strip. Also, connect an external monitor to see if the display is the problem. Good luck.
