General :: Bluetooth Is Not Working On Dell Studio 1555 Laptop
Nov 6, 2009
I have a dell studio 1555 laptop , i m facing the very strange problem with my bluetooth , my bluetooth is not working on my F11 , means to say i cant be enable the bluetooth on my box , i thing its a driver issue.
I upgraded my Dell studio 1555 to Ubuntu 10.04, and now I don't seem to be able to stay connected to the wireless for more than a few minutes. Network manager never notices the disconnect, and it will usually reconnect on it's own in 10-15 minutes, but it just cycles like this endlessly. The wireless worked perfectly in 9.10 and I'm not really sure what is going on. Has anyone else seen this behavior, or maybe has an idea of something I can try? In addition I am having a problem with my laptop freezing. This happened in 9.10, but was very infrequent, now it seems to happen multiple times a night, and seems to be associated with my wireless making a connection. I'm currently posting from my Win7 partition because ubuntu us mostly useless right now.
Has anyone tried that? I have a Dell Studio 1555 running 64-bit Ubuntu 9.10 for about 2 years with almost no issues but I plan to upgrade it straight to 11.04 64-bit (using fresh install because I also want to format the HDD and partition it in a different way).
What I'm reading in the web is though a bit discouraging as there seem to be a lot of issues with 11.04 running on this particular Dell model. Quite a shame as Dell is supposed to provide good experience on Linux since they had been selling laptops with Ubuntu preinstalled (or they used to...).
I have just bought a new DELL Studio 1555 laptop which has already Windows Vista- home edition in it,however I would like to install Red Hat Linux or Fedora on this laptop which can also support Oracle 10g.
Below is the link of the laptop to give you an overview of the configuration.
I've been running Ubuntu 10.04 on my Dell Studio laptop for a few months now with no audio problems. Last night I was listening to music just fine, then put my laptop to sleep and went to bed. Today, I go to play music, and nothing comes out of the speakers. Both headphone/speaker jacks work, but when I unplug the headphones, nothing happens.
I have recently owned a Dell Studio 1555 with Windows 7 preinstalled. Incredibly, it does't have any leds on it that indicate things such as hdd activity or even caps lock! "Fortunately", Dell has provided me with an app "DellSet" that indicates on-screen when caps lock is on or off. I was wondering if there was any program that could do the same thing on linux so I can finally migrate to Ubuntu on my notebook.
From the Fedora 10 to the beginning of the Fedora 11, I was successfully enabling bluetooth device on my Dell laptop by putting hid2hci command as a system startup module:
Code: # echo "/usr/sbin/hid2hci" > /etc/sysconfig/modules/bluetooth.modules But the latest hid2hci command in bluez package now displays help information instead of turning on the (default?) bluetooth device:
Now your bluetooth device should be enabled during startup. Only one problem still exists, the state of the bluetooth device will be reset if you will turn it off using the hardware turnoff button. If you will turn it on again, you will be required to enter hid2hci command manually.
My Dell Studio 1735 laptop fails to install openSUSE 11.4 install from DVD. The installation tells me it failed to install "kernel.desktop" then grub only has a Floppy entry. When I boot to Recover System /boot has no initrd or kernels.
This is not strictly a Linux question, although I am interested in any Linux cautions as to what to avoid that could impact my Linux on the computer in question. I have Linux (openSUSE-11.1) setup on dual boot with MS-Vista on a Dell Studio 1537 laptop. My wife is "fed up" with Vista, and has asked that I replace Vista with WinXP on this Laptop. I would like to do this over the Christmas holiday break. The laptop's 1 year support warrantee has expired. can someone explain to me the function of the two Dell /dev/sda1 and /dev/sda2 partitions ?
This laptop was purchased with MS Vista installed, with 3 primary partitions (small /dev/sda1 (called "Dell Utility" ),10GB /dev/sda2 (unknown - appears to be some sort of Dell backup/recovery partition ? ), /dev/sda3 (MS Vista which had the remainder of the 250GB drive, although I have subsequently reduced this to 69GB ).
Again, I note /dev/sda3 is the 69GB MS Vista partition (I reduced it to 69GB when I installed Linux (openSUSE-11.1)). I also believe it may be in /dev/sda3 where I should plan on installing winXP. Currently I have openSUSE-11.1 Linux in /dev/sda4 (divided into extended partitions, with /dev/sda5 (swap), /dev/sda6 (root), and /dev/sda7 (/home) for Linux and it works well. I plan to keep openSUSE-11.1 Linux when Vista is replaced by WinXP Can I remove and merge /dev/sda1, /dev/sda2, and /dev/sda3 and replace them with one partition for WinXP ?
Or am I better OFF keeping /sdev/sda1 (Dell Utility) ? and am I better off to keep /dev/sda2 (some sort of Vista ?? recovery) ? and only put winXP on /dev/sda3 ? Aside from the MBR with Grub being destroyed (when I replace Vista with winXP) is there anything else I need to be careful of wrt keeping my openSUSE-11.1 Linux install on this laptop ?
I've also sent a slightly different version of this post as a question to the Dell Support mailing list. p.s. for information, here is some output from Linux commands showing the contents:
Strange thing is that the headphone jacks still work just fine. Used to be that unplugging the headphones would cause the sound to come out of the laptop speakers, but now sound never does. I'm wondering if the software that controls the routing of sound between the speakers and the headphone jacks is messed up?
I have a pair of Creative I-TRIGUE 200 speakers which work perfectly under windows7 but not under Linux Lucid Lynx (nor under 9.10). When the jack is inserted in a headphone socket, the internal speakers are muted but the external speakers are not activated I have been searching the forums, and found advice to add the line:
I installed 10.04 on my Dell 1555 laptop using Wubi on windows 7. Initially I was able to enable wifi using the multimedia buttons on the keyboard. But not since last few reboots I have not been able to enable wifi. All the other multimedia buttons are working fine. After installing ubuntu I have installed Adobe flash 64 bit and Google Chrome.
iwconfig lo no wireless extensions. eth0 no wireless extensions. wlan0 IEEE 802.11abgn ESSIDff/any Mode:Managed Access Point: Not-Associated Tx-Power=off Retry long limit:7 RTS thrff Fragment thrff Power Managementff
I've installed the drivers from nVidia. When I go into the NVIDIA X Server Settings application, in the X Server Display Configuration setcion, and click the "Configure" button, "TwinView" is disabled. Also, clicking "Detect Displays" doesn't pick up my monitor (which is connected through a port replicator - keyboard and mouse in that port replicator work fine).
Has anyone else seen this? Is this just a limitation of the current nvidia linux drivers?
Im running Centos 5.4 x64 on dell 1747 laptop, and icant get my bluetooth to run properly, here's my outputs for now lsusb Bus 001 Device 004: ID 0a5c:4500 Broadcom Corp. BCM2046B1 USB 2.0 Hub (part of BCM2046 Bluetooth)
I have a strange problem with my laptop and need your help in resolving it...i am using a Dell Studio XPS 1645..i have got everything working except the wireless.. and the real problem here is that the wlan detects the network but does not connect to it and will keep on looping back and forward doing the same thing again and again..I am using Opensuse 11.4 with Gnome 3 Shell..here is details of the commands that i tried using to fix the issue
I bought a DELL Bluetooth Headset and paired with my laptop running Ubuntu 10.10. I can connect to Audio Sink service on my bluetooth headset and it works but I couldn't connect to Headset service on my bluetooth headset. Bluez daemon quits when I try to connect to Headset service. The same bluetooth headset works fine with my XP. I can connect to Audio Sink and HSP service in my XP.
I am trying to install Ubuntu 10.04 On my Laptop and it is not working I think it has something to do with the graphics. When I reboot my computer with the CD or Dual Boot (from using Windows Installer) the screen looks very faded,flashy or just not showing up like the quality of its regular Windows Start Up. It also won't show very much just a real messed up screen with blotchy images and very flash almost like when you push down a Game Boy or a Laptop Screen.My Model is a Inspiron model 2600 it has a 1.13GHz with 512 Mb of RAM
I have a Dell Latitude D610 that was given to me and I currently have Ubuntu 10.04 installed. I am trying to get the internal microphone working for gchat.
If I go to System-->Preferences-->Sound-->Hardware it says: Choose a device to configure and Internal Audio, 1 Output/1 Input Analog Stereo Duplex is highlighted.
Settings for the selected device: Analog Stereo Duplex is selected on the dropdown menu.
When I select the Input tab: Input Volume is at 100% the box for Mute is unchecked Connector Analog Microphone/Microphone 1 is selected on the drop down menu for Connector and the device for sound input: Internal Audio Analog Stereo is selected.
The only problem I've had so far seems to be a common one but I haven't found a specific solution for a dell inspiron 700m. I have sound through the headphones but not through the laptop internal speakers. I've played with the alsamixer settings endlessly but no success, and I'm 99% sure that it's not an issue with the hardware or speaker wiring. I suspect I need to add an 'options snd-hda-intel model=xxxxx' line to alsa-base but not sure what argument to use.
Unfortunately my experience in the Unix* based world up to this point has only been using web servers and administrating them, no GUI experience of any kind so I am completely unfamiliar with the setup and entire usage of Xorg or any other Window manager at this point. The issue I am having is with the screen resolutions I am being allowed to chose for my Dell Studio 1535 running Fedora Core 13 and the KDE 4 desktop GUI, thus my issue since I am not really familiar with how to run a Unix* based GUI in the first place.
The basic information, if there is more needed just advise what and what command gathers that info (or what conf/log I should look into in order to find it). Laptop is a Dell Studio 1535 Video is the Mobile Intel GMA X3100 ATI Radeon HD 3200 Graphics. LCD interface is the LVDS.
So far it seems to give me modes for 1024x768 and on down, nothing above this. I believe I am supposed to use the radeon driver being that is the type of card it is but every time I change the xorg.conf file to use this instead of vesa the system wont get past the loading screen anymore upon reboot and nor can I seem to find a way to bring up a command line so I can hit up the Xorg.0.log to see what is wrong or change the xorg.conf file back to the original driver it had listed.
I am going to assume this is a missing driver or something else it hangs on but without being able to get access back to the system and having to rebuild it again (re-install via live CD) I am basically out of luck at this time. Sorry for the rather poor post but I do hope to receive some basic directions on where to go from here with this issue
have a Dell Studio 540 and am currently running Fedora 14 x64 KDE version. All seems to work well except I have no sound. Support.dell.com tells me my sound card needs a RealTek driver as well as ALC888 HD driver.Now I don't use the HD integrated sound (back), so I am assuming it's the Analog sound hardware (that I plug my headphones in on the front of the machine).Not sure if that is clear or not, or maybe will have no relation whatsoever how ever I have no sound. I have installed other distros and sound works, but I would really like to use Fedora.
