Laptop sometimes boots to BIOS (E6220)
*Read: I chose the E6230 device page since it is closest to the E6220*
This E6220 is the one I use, but I primarily bought for the power supply and batteries since it was about as much to buy a 2nd system with 2 batteries and a 90W charger, which allows for ExpressCharge. My preferred unit (no webcam/mic only) is in much nicer shape. This one has more cosmetic issues, and I need to tape the lower cover on since the retention screw point was stripped by the previous company.
On occasion when I use the parts purchase machine, it occasionally boots to BIOS instead of to Windows but within 1 reboot it works. It is still running the original 128GB Dell SSD it shipped with (LCT-128M3S), but it has low lifetime writes (14.88GB in Hard Disk Sentinel) and 13 power cycles, so the drive is like new. I’m not too concerned about the SSD since it’s barely used, but I do recognize it might be low hours for a reason (Hint: It happened just as the warranty expired and was sold off at auction or in a private sale). My other one has a 250GB PNY CS900 (originally the same factory Lite-On SSD/Removed before sale) and I have never had this issue before so it is unique to the parts purchase system and the factory SSD. The caddy and interface are both original from Dell on this one as well.
Is it normal for these machines to sometimes boot to BIOS but recover the next time? I am going to run ePSA and get additional data
Is dit een goede vraag?
