Dell :: E6400 LCD Quality

Dec 7, 2008

I have just bought a Latitude E6400 with base spec LCD screen and base spec graphics card. The screen is very bad for eyestrain with harsh whites at all levels of brightness and contrast, except those at which it is too dark to read. I wondered if anyone else had this same machine and could comment? I called Dell and they said it is just because I bought the base spec, and to improve the problem I would have to return the machine and buy a better one.

I have turned off all the animation effects on vista and am just using it for text with no 3D stuff at all. This does not help with the screen quality.

I am upgrading from an Inspriron 630m with the same resolution LCD screen, which was never any problem despite long hours of use daily for over 2 years.

If this is the normal level of quality with this screen, has anyone tried buying an aftermarket screen of better quality and upgrading? I am considering doing this.

Dell :: Quality Of E6400 Touchpoint

Feb 16, 2009

quality of the E6400 touchpoint for me? I never thought I'd like touchpoints, however after having used on on a Lenovo the other day I found that I much prefer them to touchpads.

How do people find it on the new Latitude series?

Dell :: Xps 13 Vs. E6400 Screen Quality

Aug 19, 2009

I've been considering both of these systems, but I was wondering if anyone had a bit of personal experience with the screen quality.

There are the obvious differences of size, resolution, and matte vs glossy, and the general strengths and weaknesses of both of those, but I would like to hear some impressions from someone that has had first hand experience with each.

I am going to be using the system for graphic design (student) work, some of which will go to print as well as digital photography editing. I know about color calibration and how important it is.

Dell :: Latitude XT2 Compatibility With XT Media Base

Mar 15, 2010

This is a repost of a thread I posted on tabletpcreview's forums. It seems like nobody there knows or the forum is on its way out- almost 100 views with no replies.

So the story is that I'm getting tired of plugging in 4-5 wires every time I go to class or want to study away from home, and a docking station would solve this problem. Unfortunately, the official XT2 mediabase that Dell support wants me to buy is $270. That's almost 25% the cost of this machine! (Part number H266H) There's also another part on Dell.com that might be $199. Either way, that's a lot of money for a pretty basic port replicator.

The other thing is that when I google "XT2 mediabase", the first hit is a Dell PDF of a manual for the XT2 mediabase. The part number indicated there is PR12S. However, PR12S is the part number for the XT mediabase as well! The PR12S can be ordered online for anywhere between $20-80, so I'd much rather buy it, if it works.

Can someone confirm (ie you own an XT2 and the PR12S or have access to these two parts) whether the XT2 can work mostly flawlessly with the PR12S? I can deal with bypassing an error message, but I need the ports to work. Mainly, the DVI, VGA, ethernet, USB, and audio.

Dell :: How To Remove The Base Assembly Of E6500

Mar 10, 2009

Dell say to remove battery which I did. Then to loosen the M2.5 x 5 mm captured screw (what is that?) Is that the thing that is on right side and is in the "cutout" of the media bay and ejects when

pushed (not the media bay).

When upside I see a hole on the right side and about half way up. And the last step is to slide the cover away (I am assuming that

I remove 5 screws on the cover itself (the 4 on the left and one in the center).

Dell :: Xps 13 :: Would The SSD Be Worth

Jul 14, 2009

Would the SSD be worth the extra money on this? Can the GPU handle games coming out like Diablo3 and Starcraft2?

Is the heat issue fixed on this model? How is the battery life? Is there anything else I should recommend or take away from this let?

Any help or tips would be appreciated. He plans on buying next week. I'm still looking but this sleek design looks WAY better than the HP..

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 .....

Dell :: SSD In A M1710, Is It Worth It ?

Feb 21, 2010

I've searched the forum but could not find a definite answer.

My wife is using my old m1710 mainly for photoshop and i have noticed that it's very very hdd intensive. She complains that it would freeze sometimes when working with a lot of files or with large files.

I decided to upgrade the HDD to SSD, but after reading here and there i saw different opinions.

Some say i will not see any increase in performance because the bottleneck is the SATA support of m1710 mobo, some say still there will be increase in performance.

Dell :: Studio 1537 And Windows 7 Base Device Drivers?

I did a clean install of Windows 7 64 bit Ultimate a month ago and everything is running well. However, I've noticed in Device Manager that there is an unidentified base device which is lacking a driver. Here is the info:

Device Type: other devices

Location: PCI bus 9, device 1, function 3
Device Status:
The drivers for this device are not installed. (Code 28)

To find a driver for this device, click Update Driver.

Updating the driver through both the internet and searching through my computer has not found a driver. Any ideas on what the issue might be?

I would like to get the Studio XPS 1640, but generally I wait about 4-6 months after the product has been released before buying. There are talks about a built-in TV Tuner, but I haven't seen that on the Dell website. People are also saying Dell is going to upgrade the video card .....
