Dell :: Replacing Studio 1555 Screen

Aug 21, 2009

I somehow managed to drop my new Dell Studio 1555, resulting in a cracked screen.

With some hardware knowledge I felt that the best option would be a self-replacement job. However, the 1555 screens alone are over 100 on eBay

However, there are 1545 screens for just 60. Would one of these work OK on my 1555

I have a Studio 1555 and keep getting the message that my drive "D" is almost full.  Can I delete all these files and and let the system start backing everything up again?  I'm also running Norton 360 which has a backup file on the same drive, is this double redundancy or what?

Dell XPS 15 :: Replacing Laptop Hard Drive?

Jan 3, 2015

My laptop hard drive is about to fail and I plan on replacing it myself. However, if I'm unable to locate the original system drives, rescue disk, or Windows 7 software, what files do I need to make sure I copy before installing the new drive?  I may go ahead and purchase a new copy of Windows and do a clean install but I'm concerned about the BIOS and other drivers.

Here is the hard drive model that was inside: http://www.superwarehouse.com/Toshib...2194/ps/394084

Sony :: Replacing Hard Drive On A Vaio FW

Jan 30, 2009

I'm about to pull the trigger on a FW, but it has a 320GB 4200rpm. HD.

I've planned on buying a WD Scorpio Black later and the replacing it.

How complicated would that be? What I mean is, that I can do the hardware replacing and all that, but is it enough that I would do a recovery disc with the original HD inside and then replace the HD's and then just boot from the disc. Or do I need to fiddle around with the SATA drivers,

Apple :: Replacing Hard Drive On MacBook Air

Mar 10, 2009

I had two questions about replacing the hard drive on the 1st generation (rev A) MacBook Air (with the 80GB hard drive):

1. I believe I read somewhere that it uses a not-so-common connector/interface. So, does anyone know where you can get the type of hard drive the rev. A MacBook Air takes?

2. Has anyone ever done this? Is it hard to get inside the case? Hard to swap out the drive?

Dell :: Studio 1555 -vs- Studio 15 Spcial Edition

May 21, 2009

I've been reading the threads for a while and wanted to get some more opinions on the 1555 vs SSE. I know the SSE is basically the 1537 with the edge to edge monitor.

I placed my order for the SSE last week with an estimated delivery date of 6/15
I could cancel my order and go with the 1555 with an estimated ship date of 6/01. what do you think. I have ~$1000 to play with ......

Dell :: Studio 15 Replacing LCD Cover

Nov 9, 2008

I just got my hands a Studio 15 with great specs at the cheap, but with a pretty badly scratched up LCD lid. Has anyone attempted replacing the lid? Is it hard? I've opened up and replaced a processor, keyboard, fingerprint reader, ram, and hard drive before, but never an LCD cover. I'm kinda worried about the power button and wifi catcher, and I'm worrying I may not put the screen back the right way. This is supposed to be for my cousin, but I can't give it this badly scratched up.

Dell :: Replacing My Studio 1558 HD

Feb 18, 2010

I got a new Dell Studio 1558 a week or so back. Ever since I got it, I feel a constant vibration to the left of the touchpad.

After doing some research and asking some questions, apparently the Seagate 7200 RPMs have this issue. I confirmed it was the HD by putting the HD to sleep and the vibration would stop.

The best solution to me seems to replace the Seagate with a WD 5400 RPM HD. I have been looking at their Scorpio Blue for this:
http://accessories.us.dell.com/sna/p...4&sku=A2436199

Will it work with the 1558? And, how do I go about setting up the laptop after replacing the HD?

I don't have any important documents that need to be transferred, but I am guessing I will have to use the Dell DVDs to setup Windows?

Thanks

Dell :: Looking Into Replacing The Studio 15 Speakers

Jan 23, 2009

The speakers in the studio 15 are pretty bad, worse than any other laptop I've ever used (worse than my cell-phone)... and I've never even used the Dell audio drivers which are supposed to be even worse. I've picked up a set of Logitech V20 speakers which are great, but it would be nice to upgrade the stock speakers.

I've started doing some digging ... the speakers are part number Dell part D954D made by Veco (http://www.veco.com.tw/all-index.htm) which makes a lot of small speakers and custom notebook mounts .....

Anyone here upgrade to a 'Blu-Ray' player after receiving your Studio Laptop?
I know there's a guide on how to replace the 'optical drive'

From what I can tell the model number: "Sony BC-5600S" is the one I need.
However, some list the "Sony BC-5500S" as one that will work..

Dell :: Studio 1555 Crashing Etc..

Mar 9, 2010

I got it in November, sometimes when i go to ANY of my browsers to view pages with flash. The whole browser freezes and crashes, so i start it up again and go to the page, and crash again.. so i try to use another browser (i literally have chrome, Firefox, safari and IE) all of them do the same exact thing.. and once it crashes there's no way to get it back up unless you restart. It gets very annoying having to restart my laptop about 5 times a day. I've done everything, uninstalling flash player, reinstalling it, reinstalling browsers.. I've even reinstalled my OS because nothing else would work. I don't understand why this laptop has so many issues. Randomly freezes, crashes etc. Its basically brand new and i shouldn't have these issues. My old Compaq presario cq60-215dx NEVER ever did any of these thing this Studio laptop does. This laptop is about 400 dollars more than my Compaq.. Also, i dual booted Vista and Windows 7 and Vista is a hell of a lot faster, it boots up faster and never crashes.. It just seems as if Dell did something to this OS to make it a piece.. help?

Dell :: Studio 1555 FREEZing!

Feb 13, 2010

I just received my new Studio 1555 with Core2 P8600, 4GB RAM, Windows7 64Bit.

It freezes up on me at lease twice daily. I can't spot the problem, it has froze once when using excel, many times watching youtube videos and once using a tax software.

Everything just hangs and freezes. Can't do anything, have to hold the power button down. A few times when youtube froze, the sound stayed but in a frozen state.

What can it be?

Dell sent me some additional ram to upgrade to 8GB but that hasn't helped.

I have updated all drivers.

Please help. I'm tired of waiting on the phone and going through with Dell for hours and hours.
