Dell :: Bought M4400 But Tag Does Not Verify

Aug 17, 2009

New Dell M4400 user (and new to the forums!)

After giving up with the 1280 resolution on the 13" sony I had for about 2 years, I bought a M4400 2nd hand from a reputable chain of stores in the UK.

It was actually as good as new - all the plastics coverings were still present and untouched both under the laptop and on the palm rest etc. Box was present with all the books/cds sealed
They get a decent supply of Dell and other brands in from resellers/suppliers etc and having worked there in the past, I have no issues with it BUT...

The service tag does NOT validate on the Dell support site. If I type it in another country, it knows that it does not belong to that country.
When I do type it in, it basically says AMERICAS and nothing else.

No warranty information is found, when I hit contact, it basically throws back an error to say the tag was not found.

Have i got anything to worry about?

On another note, while the laptop IS brand new, there are no stickers under the laptop - is this normal on a M4400? The Vista licence sticker is present but under the battery

If It was peeled off, you would know even if it was a slight bit of residue and given that the plastic laminate is still stuck on properly without any signs of it being removed...I am 99.9% sure it never had any stickers on it.

Other than that, I love the laptop - gets a bit warm in the front but it's great otherwise!

T9600, 4GBram, 250GB drive, 15.4 UXGA dual cathode screen@ 1900 resolution etc etc etc

HP Pavilion Dv7 OS/Software :: Windows Can't Verify Publisher Of This Driver Software

Dec 17, 2014

Pavilion dv7.  Windows Vista Home
The error message that desplays at the very end of the system recovery process is "Windows cant verify the publisher of this driver software." 
I have tried clicking the "Install anyway" button, at this point, over 5 times.  The process doesn't advance and I get frustrated and shut my computer off.
I started but haven't finished the system restore process, so there is nothing usable on my computer in terms of operating system. 
What should I do?

Dell :: Inpiron 1764Review (bought At BestBuy)

Feb 28, 2010

After spending months, I finally talked the woman into buying a laptop. I am a decent power user, use Macs,

Windows and Linux. First computer (Atari 800) had a cassette tape as storage. I've used DOS, Windows 3.1, Win 95, Windows 2000, XP, Vista and 7. I build my own desktops, and have since they ran at 266MHz. My first Mac was a 7100/66. Yes, that's 66MHz, lol.

As you can well imagine, it was my azz on the line for anything that did not pan out. I really had to make sure we got her what SHE wanted and not what I wanted.

First, I have to review the online shopping experience. Pretty awful. The HP website is a pure train wreck. I hated the website enough that I could not bring myself to even consider an HP. One major manufacturer down .....

Dell :: Exporting Newly Bought Studio 1555 Outside The US

Jul 30, 2009

I recently processed my custom studio 15 from the Dell US site the other day and since Dell USA does not ship outside of the US I decided to have it delivered to my sister in California...

from there I'll have it brought here in the Philippines when someone goes home.

My concern is: During the processing of my order I did not tick the option " I WILL EXPORT THIS OUTSIDE of the US".

Is there any difference if I did? I mean, will my order come with a permit to export or something if I did choose that option? Apparently I cannot reverse that. I'm not really familiar with US Customs or if they would allow new and boxed laptop to be exported out from the country.

Dell :: Bought Studio 1537 Motherboard And Replaced 1536

Apr 6, 2010

I have a 1536 that I thought had a dead motherboard. I bought a 1537 motherboard, T9600 CPU & a CPU fan & heatsink. Finally all the parts showed up & I got it installed. Unfortunatly all this new hardware & still same problem. When you turn it on the media lights flash on & then off & the DVD drive makes some noise. The display doesn't turn on & no HDD activity. I know the 4G of DDR2 is good & the HDD is good as I tested them in another laptop. Any help would be helpful. I would think that I would get some HDD activity ( noise & HDD light ) if the display was dead.

Dell :: Bought Refurb Studio XPS 13 With CCFL. How Much Worse Is It Compared To LED?

Dec 6, 2009

I have an M1330 with LED and love the display. I came across such a good deal for a refurb Studio XPS 13 that i could not pass it up - (P8800, 4GB, 500GB 7200rpm, 512MB N10M-GS,

Wireless 1510, Bluetooth 370 for $875 shipped). Only problem is that it has a CCFL screen instead of LED.

Will the difference be really noticeable? Am i going to regret it?

Acer :: Just Bought An 5735-4624 And Want To Put XP On It

Oct 6, 2008

I just bought a new Acer 5735-4624 aspire model. It comes with Vista and of course I'm looking to move back to Xp. Only thing is I cant find any support drivers anywhere. Even on the Acer site--the friggin model is not even listed. I know it's new and all---but!

I have an e-mail in to Acer support but I already know about their famous support woes.

Anyone have an idea so I can move to little ol' XP?

Any drivers perhaps from other models that might be compatiable?

HP/Compaq :: Installing Store Bought XP Onmachines

Feb 4, 2009

My HP recovery discs got corrupted. I read around about making new set by moving/renaming HPCD.sys and it didn't work. I contacted HP to get new set of discs and they want to me charge equivalent to USD50. I am in no mood to pay them this much sum.

A friend of mine has a store bought XP CD and I have trial version of XP. I was wondering if I install using any of these CDs and use XP key that my HP machine came with, will it fly? Has anyone tried it? Whats the result?

Plus, I must mention that my HP came with Swedish OS and the discs I have are English OS.

Dell :: M4400 AS5

Nov 18, 2008

First take the battery out and remove the bottom part like so.

Then you have to take the fan off there are 3 screws to take out and unplug the fan connector.

After you take out the CPU heat sink "there is 4 screws".

Then the Video card heat sink 3 screws.

Once that is done I took the CPU out you don't have to take it out I just wanted to see it. You do have to take out all the extra thermal past from DELL from the CPU and GPU and the 2 heat sink like so.

I use a plastic card and paper towel to remove the extra paste and it workes grate.

Now for the AS5 put on each of the components you just clean as in the CPU and GPU and the 2 heat sink like so.

same go's for the CPU and GPU then jsut use a falt plastic card I just use a master card but any thing similer will do to even out the SA5 like don't try to get it all nice and flat just make sure it covers all the surface of contact of the CPU GPU and heatsink and you should be good, it soule look like that now.

Now just re insert the GPU heat sink and tight the 3 screws back.

After it's the CPU heatsink and it's 4 screws like so.

Now the fan 3 screws and one connoctor.

Close it all up and boot Hope it helps some of you.

Mine was 55 and idle and now 49/50.

Dell :: 25W Vs 35W CPU On M4400?

May 20, 2009

Considering that this is a "heavy duty" notebook, how much would a 25W processor (e.g., P9600) increase battery life and decrease heat? In my experience, the difference has been very little for relatively similar notebooks.
