Dell Adamo 13 :: Air Bubbles Forming Under Glass Between LCD And Black Border

Sep 1, 2010

As the title suggests I am starting to see small air bubbles form under the glass on my Adamo 13 laptop - along the edge of the LCD monitor and the black border.  I cannot seem to find any other reports of this issue on the web.

This laptop almost never leaves the house, or even the desk it sits on, and is otherwise in perfect condition.  It is run in a 75-degree house, low humidity (Phoenix, AZ) - really no reason I can see as to why this would be happening, at least not from anything I am doing.

Dell Inspiron 5547 :: Black Border Around Screen?

Sep 14, 2014

I am having issues with my Dell 5547 laptop. There is a roughly 1cm border all around the screen which wasn't there before and I noticed it now as my taskbar is adjusted 1cm up but when I put google chrome in full screen it sort of chops the top bar down a bit.

I noticed through google searches other people have had similar issues with Dell laptops however I can't seem to find a solution because every time I try to turn off the "maintain display scaling" it won't let me turn it off.

Acer Aspire E1-510P-4814 :: Black Border Bars Around Screen

Jan 12, 2015

Enjoying my new Acer E1 laptop. I installed Linux Mint and got rid of windows 8.1. Everything has been working/running great... except there is a black border about a 1/2 inch wide running all the way around the screen. I've tried without success to get rid of it and can't remember if it was the same when it was running windows. When I google image search that model of Acer, every pic I see shows the screen image go right to the plastic edge with no black border bars. Iff the Acer E1-510P-4814 is suppose to have a 1/2 inch black bar around the edges of the screen?

HP Mini 210-1060EV Display :: Black Border - Screen Shifted Down After Power Failure

Jun 19, 2013

HP Mini 210-1000 ... Actually it's HP Mini 210-1060EV PC  
From product specifications: Display: 25.6 cm (10.1") Diagonal WSVGA LED HP BrightView Infinity Widescreen Display BID (1024 x 600)
Battery has been dead a long time. My display drivers  and BIOS have recently been updated from HP website. After a power failure and a restart, the display looks weird. It was shifted about an inch downwards with a black border at the top, over which the mouse will not go, and the taskbar is not visible as is off the bottom of the screen.
When I go to Screen Resolution from Windows by right clicking on desktop resolution is set as 1024x768, when I click on Advanced Settings, Monitor tab,  Monitor is set as Generic Non-PnP Monitor (1024x768 60Hz). When I change to 1024x600 it looks blurry and stretched vertically, but the screen is still shifted downwards with black border on top. 
When I enter Intel Graphics Settings I can do the same changes as in the Windows dialog box (640x480, 800x600,1024x600,1024x768).  

In the Aspect Ratio Options when I select Fullscreen (No-Border) the  Black border is fixed but the screen still appears streched vertically but the screen is cut off at the bottom with no Taskbar visible. Re-installed graphics driver as well as a few Monitor Type Drivers from windows, nothing changes. When I turn the notebook on, the HP Quickweb screen also appears as a 1024x600 stretched vertically with no black border at top but going off the display at the bottom.
It appears that  Windows and Hp Quickweb see the display as 1024x768 60Hz after the power failure. Before that, I had installed some Windows Updates but nothing related to Display drivers. I only had a System Restore point from earlier that day (very low free hard drive space?) but that didnt do anything.
Guessing it's a registry/driver problem since no pixels are bad and the black border on top is fixed in Aspect Ratio Options when I select Fullscreen (No-Border).

Dell Inspiron 15r :: Bubbles Then Flashing On Screen

Dell :: Dust Particle Between Glass And LCD

Feb 25, 2009

I got my Studio XPS 13 last night and spent about 5 hours installing Vista Business 64-bit from scratch and setting everything up.

It has been running great so far; however, I just noticed one or two dust particles between the glass and the lcd.

What should I do? It only bothers me when the background is white or light color. Should I ignore all that hard work and get it exchanged or am I being too anal about it? What are the chances of the next one being tightly sealed?

Lenovo U/S Series :: IdeaPad S210 - Rogue Bubbles Killing Touchscreen Usage

Sep 29, 2011

I just bought a Lenovo Ideapad S210 a couple of month ago. When I start using the touchscreen everything works for a couple of seconds and then randomly bubbles with about a half inch diameter start popping up, usually in a horizontal fashion across my screen. These bubbles that I am referering to are the visual effect when a finger touches the screen. So far these rogue bubbles seem to spawn whenever I start using the touchscreen, and keep me from controlling my cursor with my track pad, touch screen, or an external mouse once they appear. The only thing that works then is to shutdown the laptop, which is a big annoyance. 
It is running on Win 8 default settings.

Acer :: Crack On The Screen Glass

Mar 2, 2010

My poor Acer 1810T Olympic Edition, after I slipped on stairs.

No scratch, thanks to the neoprene case.

Works perfectly except for a beautiful crack on the screen glass.

I'm using an Acer -- replacement LCD for $99 from eBay.

No $500 LCD's (like for the Sony Vaio P series)

And I'm just going to cannibalize my Acer Aspire One 11.6" netbook for now. All Acer-manufactured 11.6's use identical screens (Acer Ferrari One, Gateway 11.6" netbook, Acer

Aspire One 11.6", Acer 1410 series, Acer 1810 series)

HP/Compaq :: Sent In My HDX To Get Glass Replaced, Received A Re-imaged Hard Drive

Mar 19, 2009

I sent my laptop in due to dust being behind the Infinity Glass and some scratches incurred by the speaker grilles on the HDX16.

I received my laptop back last night. The glass was replaced (woohoo!) however the hard drive was re-imaged as well (not so woohoo!).

I admit I did not back up my data. Here's why - 1.) I was never told that data backup was necessary. I have my original chat transcript showing that I was never informed of a possible system restore. I have a chat transcript from last night confirming, from HP, that I was never informed. 2.) The glass was being replaced. Nothing internally needed to be touched.

I attribute this to going to a shop to get your car's windsheild replaced only to find out they also rebuilt your engine. It makes zero sense.

I've contacted HP to see what they can do about this and they stand behind their warranty information which states they are not responsible for lost data. I can understand that. However, they are responsible for their staff and their ability to properly inform customers what may happen when a laptop is sent in for service.

Heck, I don't even know WHAT's reasonable at this point. I could go all out and get my laywer involved but it seems like a waste of time.

Dell :: Adamo XPS Refresh?

Apr 7, 2010

I'm a somewhat pleased (after months of displeasure) SXPS1645 owner *points to sig* but after 5 months of carrying this thing with me to my campus daily (and pretty much everywhere else I go) this machine is heavy and big and bit overkill since when I'm outside I rarely use it for video editing and gaming which I tend to do at home. So for the Fall(ish) I'm going to be in the market for an ultraportable, but after using this machine it's going to be hard to go to a machine with a wimpy atom processor or even a ULV C2D. So I found the Adamo XPS and it appeals to me in the same way the SXPS did, an eye catching design that isn't bulky and still performs well. However looking at the specs currently available for it I was disappointed. It's using a hodgepodge of outdated parts. I wanted to basically start a thread on potential component refreshes for the Adamo XPS, in the hopes that by the time I'm ready to purchase one some of these things will become reality. Also I'm curious about other brands of ultraportables (NOT netbooks) that people use/have used and would recommend.

Dell :: Adamo Vs. Vostro V13

Feb 11, 2010

I really need your advise on which one to go with. I prefer to test them out at the store. Unfortunately, I can't find any locally.

Anyhow, I can get the Adamo Admire on Dell (the 1.4GHz version) for $899 (with $100 EPP discount).

The Vostro V13 for $700 (w/o SSD). In fact, if I go with the V13, I may get the base version to save even more, but just to make a comparison, let's consider the $700 version.

I don't use this laptop for much heavy work. I have the Latitude D630 for that. I like to add a sexy machine for documentation, web browsing, and business travel. Occationally, I will compile some C code, but not often .....

Dell :: Thinking Of Porting From A MB Air To Adamo

Dec 9, 2009

I started out with a M1210 and than moved to a MB Air. I like the Air but i really want to come back to Windows so would you recommend the Adamo or the Adam XPS ?

I really like that Adamo XPS but what do you think of the specs ? Will it preform well ? Would it preform as good as my Air with 120 SSD, Nvida Card and 2 GB Ram?
