Dell Studio: where is my hdd activity led

Well,  Dell Studio is provided with any led but on/off led.
You may get a hdd activity led via software or … or …
try pressing Fn+H
and on/on led will become the HDD Activity Led you needed.  😉

    Mmm, I have a Dell studio 1747, but Fn + H seems to do nothing …
    the on / off led in the right is always active …
    my bios version is the latest: A11

    Hi
    Sorry I’m late, I was very busy lately.
    I have a 7-month old Dell Studio 1557; bios version is A03.

    I found this post also talking about Fn+H
    http://en.community.dell.com/support-forums/laptop/f/3518/t/19331923.aspx .

    I’m not sure if it applies to your model too; 😦
    in old models, Fn+H caused hdd turn on/off .

    I’m sorry.

    ps: just in case, which key exactly do you press? 😉 (don’t want to discard anything 🙂 )

  3. Lucio Says:

    Fn key (which is in Function Mode, not in multimedia mode, in quickset) and, while its pressed, the h key

    I hope it’s only your bios and will be fixed next version.

    for me the FN+h does function: the on-off light flashes according ti the drive activity.
    smart idea! only it is not so easy to keep that light under visual control.
