Dell Precision M65

Recommended Posts

My Dell Precision is running OSx 10.7.1 - with no issues at all. Great screen, haven't bothered with sleep at this point, but everything else is purring nicely! It think's it's a MacBookPro 3,1 - both cores running usually around 4 to 7%, and seems nice and fast (although I haven't checked for core speed at this point).

 

My Problem:

The built-in bluetooth is working, and will connect to my Magic Mouse - FOR 3 MINUTES AT A TIME! At the 3 minute mark it disconnects for about 8 seconds, then reconnects by itself. There is a trace in system processes, and I can see it crash, follow the services that are crapping out, then it auto reconnects.

Sep 1 17:26:16 Bill-Cardiffs-Mac-Pro kernel[0]: [0fe2ac80][AppleMultitouchDevice::stop] entered

 

Over and over... everything about 3 minutes.

 

Any thoughts? Is there a Bluetooth kext that would work better than the auto loaded one? Help please!

The module is a Dell 350 bluetooth, supposedly it's the same module as in the 410,510,610 and 810 Latitudes, as well as the M20 and M70 - atleast according to the Dell spec sheet it is.

i get the same in my kernel log about the dell 350. i think the problem is that it's not registered as native.... if it was you would be able to turn it off from the prefpane. the id most likely needs to be patched into a plist for bluetooth some where or bin patched into the kext or powermanegment has to be turned off on it so it stays on. but that's my theory. my issue is with bluetooth headphones, same outcome keeps cycling or errors out on adp.

Any thoughts about the 355 or 360 modules? They are all about $20 on eBay - thinking of getting one if that means no more crashing. I think the other two are Broadcom chips - but I am just looking into this now.

FYI - I ordered and received a 360 module for my Dell. I haven't disconnected yet, however the machine squawks and beeps like mad when powering it up. I also now have a blue light on my console panel on the front of my laptop which is sweet!

Under advanced I still have the wake up greyed out so that's not an option, however I've been online for over 5 minutes without disconnecting once!! Very happy now!

I recommend this module over the 350 as far as Dell devices and Hackintosh's are concerned.

well i tried a 360 with a magic trackpad over the weekend and it seemed very stable and i did not notice any bluetooth errors in kernel log.

It's working fantastic for me. Turns out (I think) the initial squawking and beeping was due to the BIOS trying to see what it had and attempting to get me to go in and adjust stuff. This was being over run by the altered startup apple logo BIOS screen - so it was just throwing a tantrum of sorts.

 

I have rebooted since to see, and all is well and good. No beeping/squawking, disconnects, no process errors, and my M65 is one step closer to being just awesome!

I have a D630 with the 360 bluetooth, running Lion but bluetooth does not detect nor pair. The "bluetooth on" option is grayed out in the menu, though the system reports the presence of the hardware:

sometimes they have to be activated in windows by installing the latest firmware for them to then work on vista or seven not xp.

 

Amazing -- finally tried with 7, and then voila!

 

Thanks, Bronxteck!

 

There isn't any option for turning the bluetooth off (so it's always on). Not that this is any major issue, but it would be nice to be able to shut it down to conserve power. Anyone with better experience? Thanks!
