I recently had an HDX16 and tried out a DM3, but ended up returning the DM3 because I simply wanted a bigger and more powerful setup. Well, I had gone through 3 previous HDX16s because of various issues. Now I get one of the last ones they made (I got it about a week ago but was out of town for Thanksgiving.) Anyways, there's a huge crack in the plastic on the long roundish bar that connects the screen to the laptop. I don't know what to do. I can call, but they can't even send out another replacement, as the 16 doesn't exist anymore. To me the DV6/7/8 series isn't even comparable in my mind. What does everyone think I should do? I get the feeling they'll offer me say $50 which isn't worth the crack. I mean to me $200 is about where I'd say I'd be okay. But even then, I'll use it every day and think of the crack.....
I have a problem with my dell e1705 laptop. I was trying to set up an external monitor, after installing the drivers that came with the monitor i couldn't get the laptops internal monitor to start back up. I tried restarting with the external monitor unplugged but the laptops screen just glows with no picture. can anyone tell me how to enable my internal monitor? Only the external monitor shows up when i try to switch displays in the nvidia controlpanal.
I'm trying to grasp this one... but my mind can not wrap around it, so here goes. I just got off the phone with Dell University sales and talked to the rep. Since the i1720 came out in July I have spec'ed and spec'ed and seen that IT DOES NOT COME WITH OR HAVE OFFERED A 7200RPM HD.
I have a e1705, my dad has one, my girlfriend has one, and my uncle has one... all on my recommendation. I have dabbled/worked in the IT industry since I was 10 and I can't believe that this speed RPM is not offered.
5400RPM existed clear back in 1994.
I just bought my GF a 7200RPM 7k200 200GB Hitachi HD with 16mb of cache for her e1705 from NewEgg.
When we ordered all of our e1705's we intentionally ordered them with the cheapest HD's cause we ordered 7k100 7200RPM 100GB Hitachi's from Froogle searches.
Am I the only one that can't wrap his/her mind around this one....
Was wondering if any of the programmers out there could crack the M6300 bios so it would blind flash a M1710. I have a video card here from an M6300 and an M1710 that I would be willing to brick and RMA if it doesnt work.
I have had my laptop for about 3 years now. It is an Acer TravelMate 2420. About 2 months ago I started to notice a crack forming on the back of the monitor by the left hinge. I was wondering if there is a way to stop the crack from getting bigger without sending it somewhere to get fixed.
I bought mine in 2007, thinking I might give it a couple upgrades, since I'm going to be opening it up to clean out its insides and re-do the thermal paste.
I need help upgrading the hard drive. This is my first time upgrading anything, and I need things made specific before proceeding.
The manual says any 2.5 inch SATA would do. I see on newegg that there are 1.5gb/s, and 3.0gb/s variants. Does SATA mean it'll support either? And are there any limits to RPM?
Ram is super expensive nowadays. Just when I was buying the notebook, 4 gb sets would cost $50, now it's double that. Anyway, it makes me want to buy a cheapass laptop around $400 just to take out the bigger hard drive and the ram.
I currently have a Macbook Pro, from the mid 2007 batch. The frame around the screen started with a hairline crack at the base of the screen on both sides about a year ago and since has developed into full blown crack on both sides. It seems that the rest of the screen is fine, so I don't want to buy a new one. Does anyone have any knowledge about replacing the bezel (not sure what to call it?) around the screen?
I've a problem w/ my Macbook pro 15" Late 2008. I found some crack on my screen.
1. On last Friday. After I went back to my home. I had open my laptop. At first, I had find some scratch on my laptop screen. It's on the bottom right corner of my screen. Then I use my finger w/ a little cloth to clean it. But it became to a little crack on my glass screen. Then I saw something just like a little dent. - I always keep my Macbook pro in to a hardcase( AXIO - Black Hardcase, the one I got it from applestore), then carrying it w/my laptop bag with carefully.
2. Then on Saturday, I went to apple service (retial shop, I had buy my laptop) to claim about a problem on my laptop screen. They took a photo from my laptop and send it to apple. I said that this is not an accident and they agreed that. On my laptop, There is no any scratch outside or beside the point I 've find a crack. They ask me to wait till they get an information from apple service.
3. Today, I 've got an information from apple. They tell that I can't claim what happen on my laptop. Apple does not allow to claim for a problem like this under warranty.But my laptop is not have an any accident cause... They tell me...If I have any problem, I can ask their SPS - Supporting produce service staff for this, they refuse it. Or else waiting to talk to their customer relationship service staff tomorrow....
I found a small U-like crack around the bottom near the AC connector and the hinge are intact with the bottom housing.
I did not notice it was there after 10 days of use. Once I found it, I called Sony Customer Service to discuss about it , and I was connected to Tech Support for Repairing this unit. (I decided not to return it for credit since I already returned 4 Z690s for keyboard lifting issue for two, high-pitched noise, cosmetic damage and I got sick and tired of returning the VGN Z690)
here are some pics for the cosmetic damage (it is small but noticeable) and keyboard. [url]
Once the laptop arrived in the repair center, they gave me an estimate of $161.40 for replacement of bottom housing.
I should have sent it back for repair but I gave the repair center one last chance and tried to save some time on placing new order. I received the laptop on April 20th.
But high-pitched noise started to cry out for my attention... which did not existed before the repair.. I sent it for repair on 22th and it is still being diagnosed....
I recently just purchased and received a fancy Dell e6400 from one of the many dell deals. My eyes are light sensitive from looking at many computer screens over the years and due to this I avoid LCD screens and much prefer flat CRT monitors. My goal is to use the e6400 as my workstation computer while using the VGA out to power my 19in Sony CRT .....
I have a HP 15-r011dx Notebook PC with windows 8.1 and when on youtube or CNN videos, the speakers carack and pop. The commercials that CNN play prior to the story are fine as is a DVD or my loaded music. I relly do not want to reinstall. I have had the computer 3 weeks and I am not sure if it has been there from the beginning. I have updated everything from HP including BIOS and have tried a different browser and adjusted volume levels. Windows has done updates.
i dissasembled my presario cq60 and when i put it together the monitor won't activate.
i tried using an external monitor and the monitor refused to turn on from standby, a safety feature of the monitor. the small card in the underneath with 2 wires leading 2 the monitor, (i assume that is the laptop version of a graphics card) is fine, inserted properly, and i had a slight issue with the plugs fitting, but that was soon resolved.
I have an HP DV 6000T. I just bought a HP Elite M9510f Desktop from HP.com, and I don't have a monitor yet, so I am trying to connect my Desktop VGA to my Laptop VGA in and use my DV6000T as a monitor.
I also have a Sharp TV which I tried using as a monitor but the thing keeps flashing the Power and OPC lights and won't let me see anything.
Anyway I can make my Laptop monitor work with my desktop for the time being?
I bought a new Dell D830 about three days ago for school. I connected to my schools wireless network just fine, and I did this for about two days until I headed back home.
Here we have a wired network and it even worked fine here for about a day. Now I cannot seem to connect to anything here.
I checked the modem, different cables, and I tried to run through the repair option but I still got the same message, 'There might be a problem with one or more network adapters on this computer'. I do have Vista on the computer but besides that the only things Ive loaded are Trend Micro and Mozilla.
Will it effect both wired and wireless networks on this computer?
I have a dell e1505 for 3 years my adapter finally gave out. Dell is selling my old adapter for $70 something. I was wondering if non brand adapters will ruin my computer and where to find these adapters for cheap.
Dell tech came out to replace my motherboard for the second time in 12 months earlier this week and left the wrong ac adapter (didnt notice until after well after he left).
So dell shipped me another ac brick which arrived today, but the laptop still isnt recognizing it. The battery is completely dead now, but before it went down I checked in BIOS and it was showing no AC adapter there either. It's getting power from the wall (green light is on) but I dont have a multimeter handy to check the voltage from the brick to the computer.
The light doesnt go out when I plug it into the computer like it did when the MB died. What are the chances it's a faulty adapter or do I have another problem? Anybody else had this happen? I'm getting really frustrated with this machine. TIA guys.
Dell uses a selection of display panels from different manufacturers on laptops, even if they are described by dell as being the exact same display when you ordered your laptop.
For example, if you were going to order an XPS M1530 with a WSXGA+ resolution, you have about a 75% chance of getting a Samsung screen, and a 25% chance of getting an LG screen.
(The samsung screen is usually very grainy, and the preferred LG screen has a great contrast ratio, is slightly brighter than the Samsung, and is perfectly clean with no grainyness). Dell pretty much builds your laptop with whatever screen they have left on the shelves.
The purpose of this survey is to find out which LCD panels are undesirable or have anything wrong with them, and which ones you should request when ordering your Studio XPS.
I just received my new DELL XPS 16 from Dell by ordering online. I very much like this laptop, I even ordered it despite all its noted flaws but mine happened to ship with a flaw that now i'm not so happy about.
At first I thought my laptop had a bump where the audio controllers are but I figured that it was raised to be more accessible in the dark or something since you can feel it but after a quick google verification, it seems this is a trait that sometimes occurs when these laptops ship.
Anyway, enclosed is a relevent, high resolution pictures of my laptops raised touch sensitive strip area.
I have just received today my new Studio XPS M1640 laptop (with blue ray drive and led screen) and so far all seems to be good except ... It can't play Blue-Ray movies. When I insert a BD disk, the autoplay only gives me the option to explore the folders with explorer. No option to play the disk. If I right click on the drive, I can select powerdvd but once in powerdvd nothing happens.
Notes: 1) I can see the folders on the BD disk in explorer 2) I tried it with the version of powerdvd dx that came with the laptop and also used the online update option of powerdvd dx to get the latest version (8.1). No change. 3) I'm trying to play to the built-in screen, no external monitor connected. 4) I've read somewhere about a blue-ray icon in powerdvd, I don't see this. 5) A long call with Dell support yielded nothing. I specifically asked if they might have shipped the wrong version (non-blue ray of powerdvd), the tech said that they only have the one version and that it has been tested to play BD disks properly. 6) Dell support says to try with other BD disks and if it still doesn't work to return the computer to have it fixed. (I don't really want to do that since it seems to be a software problem). 7) I ran the Cyberlink Blue Ray advisor and it tells me that all is fine except that it doesn't detect a blue ray software player.
Anybody else ran into this? Any solutions?
It would seem a bit strange to have to pay extra for a blue ray movie player on a brand new laptop that included a blue ray drive.
I just bought a new Dell Studio 1535 and encountered the following problem:
I inserted my windows xp installation cd (as the laptop came with no OS). Windows setup began running, installing a multitude of drivers and files as it should until a message, something in the likes of "starting windows" (up to this point the screen is still the dos-style setup program). After a few seconds, a MS windows blue screen appears, stating that it encountered a fatal error.
