Question about Dell Latitude XT Laptop Computer Tablet PC

1 Answer

I got my Dell Latitude xt laptop (tablet?) used & really love it, but I keep getting the pop up message that Windows must be activated & now is running without genuine Windows. I guess I need to purchase it? Something about a product key, which I don't have or must purchase it? It seems to running fine this way. Also, the screen swivel-hinge is broken so it won't stay up without an object to support it & drives me crazy....but I posted that problem separately. Is it really necessary to have genuine Windows? What can happen? I also don't have any protection & all seems fine..... looking forward to anything:).....

The Windows software presently on your machine is "unofficial" so there is no way Microsoft can validate it.

SOURCE: How do I enable presentation mode on an XT2

You could be able to enable presentation mode by pressing the "settings" button on the bootom of your display, next to the power button and the "ctrl" and the rotate button. After you press that, your dell control point manager should pop up and then go to the tablet tab on the left and open it. after that, go to the display tab and you should see an option that allows you to turn your presentation mode on.

No, sorry.
The DELL Latitude XT uses digitizer technology from N-trig and the Toshiba uses Wacom technology.
Completely different and non-interchangeable.

SOURCE: Dell Latitude XT2 fails to start up.

I had the same problem and was able to fixed it by using the other set of wires that connects the display to the wireless adapter (on the bottom of the laptop) ... use the grey and white/grey wires instead of the black and white wires.

Delll latitude xt wont restore to an earlier restore point


Hi kaliyahsherr,

I see that your Dell will not restore to an earlier restore point.

What version of windows do you have on your Dell?

I believe you already did try to do system restore but it did not work right, does it give you an error unable to restore to the selcted restore point, if that is the error then meaning there is a peroblem with that restoration point that you have selcted have you tried a different restore point?

If you did then most probably the system restore program on your windows is having issue restoring the system to any date that you may have on your system restore. if this is the case then the only option would be reinstalling windows starting from scratch.

There is another way to do System Restore on your computer but this is only known to work with Windows XP, I haven't tried with Vista nor Win7 yet.

we do a System Restore in the Command Prompt, see steps below.

> From shut down turn your Computer back on then keep on tapping F8 to select and boot into Safemode in Command Prompt.

> Once in the Command Prompt on the blinking cursor you should type in \windows\system32\restore\rstrui.exe after typing this in it should look like this C:\windows\system32\restore\rstrui.exe, then press Enter.

> After pressing Enter this should show you a list of dates for the restore points highlight a data and time when you want to do the system restore and see if it will work outside windows.

> If this does not work then there is something wrong with Windows and needs to be reinstalled for the fix on your concern.

I hope that this information can be helpful regarding your concern.

Have a nice day,

How can you get the touch screen or pen work on the dell latitude xt2? I can't figure out how to get the buttons to work or the screen to rotate.


What OS are you using ? Windows Vista or Windows 7 ?
In order to get the buttons and touchscreen working, you need to install the proper drivers.
Go to http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/driverslist.aspx?c=us&cs=19&l=en&s=dhs&ServiceTag=&SystemID=LAT_XT2&os=WLH&osl=en&catid=&impid=
Select your operating system
and download the following drivers and install them in the following order :
  1. System Utilities : - > Dell Utility : System Software
  2. ControlPoint -> Dell - Application : ControlPoint System Manager
  3. Input device drivers - > Ntrig Application
Restart your computer. Run Windows Update Restart your computer Everything should work.

When coming out of standby mode the keyboard gets locked in the control/ alt delete mode.


Do you mean that you see the press Ctl-Alt-Delete to continue ?
This is the Windows lock screen.
You can disable this by going in Control Pannel -> Power Options -> And select " Dont require password on wake up"

Hello dbessey,

High temperatures can cause a computer to shut down, this is done to protect the system from over heating and damaging components. Its possible the battery or some sort of power issue could be the cause, but its hard to know for sure. Its more likely an issue with a fan or vent, possibly even the heatsink that draws heat away from the processor and other components inside the tablet. Check to see if any vents are blocked or clogged with dust, can you hear any fans running? If not then maybe a fan has failed. Is the laptop used in a very dusty or smoky environment? If so there may be excessive dust and tar build up inside the tablet that is keeping it from cooling properly. The best thing to do would be to see if its still covered under a warranty and if they'll fix or replace it. If not, most repair centers will give it a once over and roughly diagnose the issue for free, if they need to take it apart to get a better look a small diagnostic fee may be involved. Personally I don't charge for anything that takes me less than 30mins to diagnose.

Hope this helps, and good luck.

Please leave feedback if you found this to be helpful, thank you.

Did it start to get noticeably hot in certain parts of the enclosure? If so, you may have an overheting problem due to a failing fan, or something (dust, lint...) clogging the air circulation ducts and the radiator.
Try listening to the fan and finding out if it's running at full speed when the computer is getting hot, and if air is freely coming out of the air outlet (on the back or side of the unit). You can try compressed air blown in the oposite direction to the air flow (blow into the outlet grill) to blow away dust and particles that may obstruct the radiator and duct.
