DELL XPS M1530 Will not turn off Tags: Laptops Dell Studio Xps Power Last response: April 22, 2012 10:36 AM in Laptops & Notebooks Share adventw7 April 22, 2012 2:10:28 AM Hi Guys I have a problem with a Laptop that is driving me insane. Basically the laptop will not successfully shut off without the power cable being plugged in. With the power cable out of the Laptop it just cycles to Dell Media Direct. Recent replacement parts: New power socket I/O board New Power button I/O board New Keyboard New DELL battery New Laptop charger This Laptop does not seem to have the common video card issue. The Laptop: DELL XPS m1530 Current BIOS version: A12 I made a video to show you guys the issue (it was made at 3am in the morning just before i crashed out) http://youtu.be/I56nV1U-2TA More about : dell xps m1530 turn Emerald a b D Laptop April 22, 2012 4:46:05 AM maybe you find the answer here http://www.goodells.net/dellrestore/mediadirect.shtml adventw7 April 22, 2012 10:36:00 AM I've tried that, since i have also swapped the hdd's i do not think that Media Direct is installed on the drive but possibly in the BIOS. I have yet to see an option to turn this off. I have also used a multitude of partition scanning software as well as my trusty HBC. do not see any hidden partitions on the stock drive and the other hdd was completely blank. I have replaced the board where the media direct button is (idk possible broken button?) but this seems to of had no effect. The board where the charger plugs into was also replaced and for about an hour the issue seemed to be cured, maybe. So. My question is this. Does anyone out there know how to fully disable this on the XPS m1530? Or would it be a better option to sell up and get shot of it Can't find your answer ? Ask !
