Dell :: XPS Studio Keyboard/Trackpad SWAP Regular XPS

Jan 11, 2009

It is probably a little to early to ask, but does anyone know if the Backlit Keyboard and Trackpad from the Studio XPS can swap into the regular XPS M series?

Even if the backlighting didn't work, my main gripe is the silver keyboard, which is difficult to read under airplane lighting. Black keyboard with white fonts are much better.

Dell :: Upgrading E6400 Keyboard

Feb 16, 2009

I have purchased a refurb E6400 at a great price, the only spec it didn't have was the backlit keyboard.

Does anyone know if the keyboard can be upgraded to a backlit one (assuming I can buy the part) or is there some fundamental connection or something else missing?

Dell :: Latitude E6400 Keyboard

Mar 13, 2009

I received my Dell E6400 yesterday and need to take screenshots because I am writing training manuals.

My problem is that with my Dell D260 I could press keys on my keyboard ALT PrntScrn and capture the active screen.

With the E6400 there is only one option to capture screens and that is the Fn key with the F11 which is the PrntScreen button

Dell :: E6400 Keyboard, Firm And Springy

Sep 23, 2008

my E6400 just arrived and this is the first time I owned business NB. Compared to keyboards in consumer grade NB, the keyboard on E6400 is somewhat firmer and springy.. I need to use a little more power. Please confirm if this is normal. I guess it is. If my keyboard is normal then I guess I have some story to share... in regards to keyboard:

When I had a meeting with corporate sales people, they always have either Lenovo or Latitude. Over a period, I always wondered, what's the deal with Lenovo or Latitude, why not just buy Gateway, SONY, etc. They are good quality and even stylish. In fact, I always use Sony VAIO and never had problem. Keyboard is super soft.

Back to the story... during the meeting, the corporate sales took out their NB, and I observed that most of them are not computer literate (no offense). They type using 2 fingers only and they press the keyboard super hard BANG BANG BANG!!! at that time, i thought OMG, is he mad or he just wanna break the NB. I couldnt ever dare to see him press the keyboard and just felt that one of those buttons will pop out anytime soon LOL...

Now that I owned Latitude business NB with firmer keyboard, I now believe that it is designed that way.

Dell :: Latitude E6400 Backlit Keyboard .. Always On?

Mar 28, 2010

Anyone know if there is a way to set the e6400 backlit keyboard to always be on?

I currently have it set to the 5 minute timeout within the DCP software which is good enough, just curious if there is way to always keep it on.

Dell :: Keyboard Back Lighting E6400 Very Dim

Mar 4, 2009

I've been using my E6400 for a few weeks and I really like the backlit keyboard. Using the Dell Control Point interface, I have the backlighting adjusted to about 2/3 brightness (using the slider in Control Point).

I also have it set to remain lit for one minute with no activity.

Last night, the keyboard suddenly became much dimmer than usual. I double-checked in Control Point that the it hadn't somehow been dimmed and it hadn't.

I even maxed out the slider to the Brightest setting and it had no effect. I also tried using the 'Fn' and 'Right Arrow' keys to adjust it, no change.

I got my XPS 16 a few days ago (was going to hold out for a possible GPU update, but found a great deal at the outlet with the rgb-led, and couldn't wait any longer , and I'm going to be traveling a lot with it, so I'd prefer the 6-cell with it's lower profile. Does anyone have a new 6-cell that they want to trade for a brand new 9-cell?

Dell :: XPS 1330T7500 VERY Hot After M/B Swap

Oct 31, 2009

I recently had the Nvidia GPU failure on my XPS 1330 that a lot of people seem to get after 1.5 years of owning the laptop. Dell came out the next day and swapped the motherboard for a different one.

The only thing is, the motherboard they put in is a Rev:A00 which I assume is the very first revision? Not sure what I had in before but I'm noticing that the laptop is running very hot when just idling.

My CPU in an Intel T7500.

I am running Speedfan and even though CPU is very low, Temp1 is reporting 72C. Is this normal or is the laptop running hotter than it should? .....

Dell :: Studio 1535 LCD Swap

Dec 11, 2008

I recently received my Dell Studio 1535 after my motherboard on my inspiron 9100 fried. The lcd screen on the 9100 is much better (1680x1050) than the 1535 (1280x800), also i hate glossy screens. After reading this thread

[apparently i cannot post links yet, just search "LCD Swap m1530" in this site and you'll get it right away.]

I was hopeful that i would be able to swap out the 1535 screen and put in the screen from the 9100. I got both successfully removed, but kinda got stuck with the inverters and all that stuff, and got scared because i don't want to break anything. The thing that confused me the most was that the 1535 lcd plugged TWO things (power i think?) directly into the inverter, whereas the 9100 has only 1 thing that plugs directly into its inverter. It seems pretty clear that the original inverter has to be the one the computer uses based on all my googling of this subject, but how can i do that if it doesn't plug into the inverter the same way? can someone please offer me some help in this? i would have like to have contacted the original poster of the thread i linked, but of course, no contact information was available in his profile I may post pictures if i decide to take it all apart again. At the very least, can someone confirm or deny that it would be possible to make this swap? i will be very disappointed if i'm stuck with this low res screen forever...

Dell :: M6400 Display Swap To LED RGB

Mar 16, 2010

I am in the process of swaping out my display from the CCFL to a LED RGB display and seem to be having a little trouble.

I purchased the replacement display with a new cable which eliminates the CCFL inverter.

It appears that is all I need to make this happen since no terminals are left without a connection.

The display comes on as expected when the machine is turned on. Its starts with a white screen at full bright then shows the Dell logo. Proceeds on to display the Windows 7 booting, but goes black when the login window should appear. Basically the backlighting gets turned off since I can see the login window, but not enough to work with. If I put the machine to sleep and wake it back up, I see the login as the screen is now a full bright.

Once logged in, I am not able to adjust brightness. Dimming with the FN-arrow keys or display preferences does not have any effect. Basically, nothing I do will allow me to dim the display.

I have tried all of the following:
1. Uninstall and reinstall the ATI display drivers
2. Reflashing the BIOS
3. Clearing CMOS
4. Uninstall and reinstall Dell's System Command
5. See if windows could find a better display driver (nope)

I am running Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit and the machine has the ATI FirePro M7740.

Dell :: Video Card Swap..

Dec 25, 2009

First off, hope everyone is having a great time during the holidays and lets not forget our fellow soldiers still deployed.

So I received my replacement on the 21st with T9800 but they are sending me another replacement with the QX9300 processor.

Scenario, lets say they decide to give me the 260's SLI instead of the 280's SLI (which is what they gave me in this replacement and this is dellienware)...
Could I take the 280's in here and put them in the 2nd replacement, obviously put the the 260's in here and return it like that?

So in short, I want to take these 280s out and put them in the new replacement. Take those 260s out and put them in this one and send it back to dell.
Any input would be great

Dell :: Direct Swap With Blu-ray Burner From Xps 16?

Apr 13, 2010

Does anyone know if the blu-ray burner that is used in the XPS 16 can be used as a direct swap in the studio 15?

The reason I am asking is because I have a 16 with the blu-ray burner but the xps 16 is a bit bulky. I still need equivalent power and multi-media capabilities but the 15 is almost a pound lighter and lends to a little more portability.

I am considering purchasing the studio 15 but can't justify the costs of adding the blu-ray. I got my xps 16 with blu-ray for a steal and I can't duplicate those kind of savings with the changes recently made to EPP.

Ideally, I would like to swap the dvd drive and throw it into the 16 in addition to adding the blu-ray to the 15.

Thanks in advance!

Dell :: E6500 And M4400 Motherboard Swap

Dec 19, 2009

I have just received a refurb E6500 from the Dell outlet and felt as if it wouldn't be powerful enough for engineering (found an M4400 on the outlet a day after I bought the E6500 that would have fit my budget ).

So after reading some reviews and looking at some pictures I have decided to do a motherboard swap with an M4400 (and if everything works out make $60 from it all too!)

Dell :: 9300 Gut Swap / Transplant Into 9400 Base

May 7, 2009

I've been researching for several days about replacing a fried motherboard in my Inspiron 9300, and I have began to wonder, if I could not just transplant it's guts into a 9400 base.

I see that 9300 Mobo's and base are practically the same cost as 9400 mobos and base.

Having a 9400 Mobo would allow me upgrades in the future that my 9300 would not and that idea makes me happy.

I'm hoping someone might be able to answer me having done this themselves .....
