Dell :: Sending In Inspirion 1721 For Warranty Repair

Jul 1, 2009

I got the 1721 for x-mas. Its worked pretty well but it has a hell of a time multi-tasking then giving the blue screen of death and restarting on its own. Well yesterday I turned it on and it said that their were errors and it could not boot properly and would i like to do system restore.

Then it booted up to my log on screen but none of the buttons would work. So I restarted and got the same message about errors and then the screen went 99% black, I could only read it in the right angle of light

Dell :: Inspirion 1721 (AMD 64Bit) XP Pro SP3

Jun 21, 2009

I've been looking all over for this specific driver for my laptop. I've downgraded the OS from Vista to XP and everything went fine but, just one more driver that I can't seem to find.

I went to the Dell driver download website and seen only 32bit drivers. So, I took a chance on trying to get the correct for this specific hardware:

HP/Compaq :: HP Wants To Charge For Repair Under Warranty

Jan 26, 2009

I have a DV9220US that was purchased last August. Didn't take too long for me to see this notebook runs quite hot. So first the CPU fan starts to make a lot of noise, although still blowing the same amount of air. Then a week later the video goes bonkers in Windows, then within a few hours the notebook will not display any video at all. I call HP, and after 2 calls talking to their not so wonderful or English speaking technical support I get this RMA'd. I have a 2 year extended warranty on this as well. So they get it in and I wait, I am then informed there is a delay in the motherboard.

Well today, I checked the status page, and now it says there will be a service charge of $764! I immediately call them to ask this is, and am told this ia due to spill damage. The one thing NOT covered by the warranty, but happens to be the one thing that did NOT do this. I immediately recognized what was happening was simply the machine had overheated and damaged the GPU. My last HP notebook I had the LCD cut off switch die, and ended up having to send it in twice as the first time they sent it back without doing a thing to fix it.

Considering this notebook did not even last 6 months is just plain ridiculous. Then to ask for $764 to replace the motherboard? I might add that I also work as a HP reseller, and only paid $900 for the notebook + 2yr warranty. Well, it looks like HP will be losing me as a customer, and quite possibly a reseller with this customer service. I can only imagine with the bad economy and slowed sales they have instituted a policy to look for any reason, legitimate or not, to push the costs of repairs and service back on to the customer.

Dell :: New Inspirion 1525 LCD Screen Cracked

Jan 3, 2009

Dell is requesting $400 to replace the screen.

Unfortunately, I did not purchase the accidental damage coverage. The laptop has not been dropped or abused and is under the so-called 12 month warranty. I have read online similar cases of new 1525 LCDís developing cracks (see below a copied post from Amazon).

I am furious that Dell is failing to admit either this is a design problem with the frame or a faulty LCD panel or perhaps there was a manufacturing process blunder during assembly.

Are there any forum members who have successfully convinced someone at Dell to honor the warranty in a case like this? Is there a best approach to elevating my dispute? My daughter really wanted a Mac and now of course I am a knucklehead as highlighted by Dell's excellent customer care and design engineering.

I have a friend who owns an Inspirion 1520 and it is obvious the frame is far heavier and structurally more rigid than the cheap plastic case on the 1525. At the moment, Iím the screwed customer and Dell has a college freshman on a campus of 35,000 kids who will be bad mouthing Dell for years to come. Dell also has a few other kids who own 1525ís in the same dorm who are experiencing quality issues and the brand is taking a beating.
Thanks in advance for your comments .....

Dell :: Worth Sending M1330 For Repairs

Dec 13, 2008

Just got off the phone with a dell technician for cpu whine. Last month my computer died, they sent over a tech and he basically replaced everything in my laptop. The whine got ten times worst. I am on the phone with tech now and he is offering tech to come back and replace same exact parts or send it into Dell Depot for them to take a crack at it.

Is it worth sacrificing my laptop for 2 weeks? will dell likely tell me the whine is something "generally found in laptops" and i should deal with it? or has someone had their laptops successfully fixed by dell with respect to whine...

BTW they already rejected my request for an upgrade from my t7500...

Dell :: Spilled Coffee On My 9400, Sending Computer In

Jan 19, 2010

I have a Inspiron 9400 with the following specs;

core 2 duo, 2.16
2 gig ram
100 gig hd

I spilled coffee on it last night and am sending it in to the depot for their review to see if it can be repaired/replaced. Absolutely won't power up at all, no lights coming on or anything. Glad to have complete care, I bought the warranty for an extra year after it was going to expire after 3 years last September. I'll let everyone know what happens with this. I love this computer, it has served me very well so far for 3.5 years.

So my mom has a 17" Inspiron 1721 from like August 2007. I have been using it off and on for the past year or so, I just today got my Studio XPS 16" 1647 :-)

HP/Compaq :: Back Up Before Sending My Laptop

Feb 2, 2009

I am using windows 7 right now, and I was wondering how can I back up my whole hard drive before I send it in (they will reinstall windows, I know it), so that I can just restore it later and not have to setup everything again.

I have a dv6500t notebook, I have a Windows Home Server, and external HD. I want to backup EVERYTHING, so I can just restore it with all my settings as they are not on to the new hard drive.

HP/Compaq :: DV7-1030eg- Something Keeps Sending Keystrokes Through My System

Feb 26, 2009

I have an HP DV7-1030eg laptop and am running Vista Home 64 bit, and lately, there has been some invisible force that seems to be sending keystrokes through my system and messing up my volume settings. Here's some things that happen:

- when I use ALT-TAB, the bar (the ALT-TAB window that pops up in the middle of the screen) will just disappear
- IrfanView will suddenly jump to the next picture or quit full screen mode
- screensaver doesn't stay on longer than a couple seconds
- sometimes, my sound volume will drop, shake up and down a bit and then go all the way out. When I open the volume settings, I can see the volume slider wobbling around at the bottom

Needless to say, I checked for viruses and stuff, then I looked for advice online: the ALT-TAB problem seems to be pretty common, esp. with DELL notebooks (?), and people have had the same issue with IrfanView. I hear that removing the notebook's battery will help because there is electric tension building and that triggers unwanted impulses. And it's true, when I remove the battery, the PC becomes more stable - for a short while. Then, the problems reappear.

I checked out the test field in the FilterKeys feature, which emits a clicking sound at every keystroke, and it's clicking like crazy. There's roughly one keystroke a second happening in my system right now!

Maybe my setup is not properly grounded? I live in an old house with old wires etc. - how do I discharge electrical tension from an object? Or do I have too much stuff connected to my computer that creates an electric field? I have a 2.1 stereo system with ground loop isolator, an external monitor and USB mouse/keyboard.

Dell :: Square Trade Warranty Or Warranty?

May 16, 2009

I just recently placed an order for a Studio 1737 (replacing an Inspiron E1705). It comes with a 1 year warranty.

I'm debating whether it's worth spending $200+ to upgrade to a Dell 3 year warranty or should I get a 3 year Square Trade Warranty for less than $150 (I can get one for around $120 after a coupon)?

Dell Inspiron 1721 :: Windows Vista Fails To Boot

My Dell Inspirion 1721 fails to start the Windows boot.

The F8 and CTRL F11 do not work at all. I did the hours long total diagnostic that is built in and everthing passed - so must be software.

How do I recover? Can I just install a new version of Windows (to replace Vista) and save the existing files and software on the laptop?

Dell Inspiron 1721 :: Will Not Recognize Hard Drive - Cannot Reinstall Vista

Apr 13, 2013

I have replaced the hard drives with new blank ones, but I cannot now reinstall Vista from the Reinstallation DVD because no drives are seen.

I have updated the BIOS to the latest available version, but still no joy.

I have taken out the drives and, using an external HDD port, can access them from another PC, so I'm certain there's no issues with the drives themselves.

I've tried Paragon 2010 Suite, but even that cannot "see" the drives, so I'm deducing that it's an issue peculiar to this Dell model.
