Dell :: 5150: Computer Locking Up During Windows Install

Aug 31, 2009

I have a laptop that has a processor microcode update failure message on startup.

It would boot fine after I pressed F1 but last week I tried reinstalling Windows and the after the computer restarts, it locks up when it gets to the windows logo and scrolling bar (before the Windows classic screen where you put in the name, date, time, etc.).

Ive tried using 2 different Dell reinstallation discs and a Windows disc but it always happens in the same place.

I checked for a BIOS update but there was never a newer revision for it...A38 or A39.

What could be wrong? I don't have a Dell resource CD to run diagnostics.

Apple :: How Do You Install Windows And Mac OS In The Same Computer

Dec 20, 2009

How do you install Mac OS and Windows in the same computer? How does it work? Do you install them in completely separate partitions, only 1 OS can run at a time, only 1 partition is visible at a time, like common x86 Boot Manager? Or does Windows run on top of Mac OS?

Sony :: Is Your Vaio Z Series Laptop Your Main Computer Or Secondary Computer

Apr 22, 2009

Do Vaio Z Series laptop owners use their laptop as their main primary computer or a secondary computer? Do Vaio Z series owners also have a desktop pc as their primary computer and use their Vaio Z Series as a secondary computer? Or is your Vaio Z Series laptop your one and only computer that you always use? Is it comfortable using the 13 inch screen for long periods of time?

Reason i ask is some people have more then one computer and some people just have one.

I'm just wondering if the Vaio Z Series laptop is a good choice as a main computer since it's got good specs and it's nicely portable but will the 13 inch screen be ok to use for long periods even at the higher 1600 x 900 resolution?

Dell :: How Old Can A Refurbished Be

May 7, 2009

I just bought a Dell XPS M1330 refurbished laptop. I know they have a 21 day return policy, so I figured it couldn't of been used more than 21 days by a customer. But after I looked at the specs I noticed the processor Intel Core 2 Duo Processor T7500 is pretty old and is no longer offered for the M1330. So now I am wondering how old this unit could really be. I wouldn't want to buy a refurbished unit if it's been used for like 6 months or longer.

And the dell chat support people are so stupid, he tells me they don't sell refurnished products, I clearly saw many refurnished products for sale the other day on the dell website.

Dell :: Refurbished M4400

Jul 8, 2009

I'm looking to replace a 3-year old IBM X60s that recently failed.

I'm considering a refurbished M4400 from Dell Outlet, and I have a couple of questions:

1.) How is Dell Outlet service and what quality can I expect from them? I know from Lenovo Outlet, most of the refurbished items are actually in immaculate condition. Is that the case for Dell Outlet? Is customer service and shipping times good?

2.) When browsing through the available M4400s, I see listings for both 15.4" WXGA and 15.4" WXGA LED. Are there M4400s with CCFL backlit WXGA panels? When configuring a new one, the only option for WXGA is LED.

And any other comments, advice, warnings, etc,

Dell :: (refurbished) E1705

Aug 12, 2007

I bought my system from Dell about right at 3 years ago. I got an Inspiron 9100 with 3 years of CC for around $1700

P4 2.8 with HT Prescott
512 MB RAM
ATI Mobility Radeon 9700 with 64 MB
15 inch crappy screen
40GB 5400RPM HDD
CDR/RW DVD drive

They replaced my computer with an e1705

Core 2 Duo 1.73 T5300
2 GB DDR2-667 RAM
ATI Mobility Radeon x1400 256MB
17 inch WXGA Samsung
8xDVDRW drive
80GB 5400 RPM HDD

I was shocked that I got upgraded so much. Then I started reading some of the reviews of the x1400 and it was terrible. I benchmarked this computer and the graphics did a little better then my old system. I played some of the games that i usually played on my older computer and they ran a lot worse on this computer. I don't know if i should complain about the graphics card, since they did give me a huge upgrade and all.

Also, does anyone know about how they work their warranties. When i got this system and registered it on their website it said that i had three years of CC warranty left. Then when the warranty went dead on my other computer so did the warranty on my new one! If I knew that was going to happen i would had bought the extended warranty before it went dead.

Dell :: Would You Recommend A Refurbished M4400?

Mar 10, 2009

I'm weighing my options as I decide which notebook to go with. I really like the M4400 but it's a bit pricey (even with the sale going on now and the free screen), so I was wondering if a refurb is something to consider.

What would the warranty be like? How is it different from getting a new one besides not getting any papers/cd's, etc.?

Dell :: Refurbished Latitude E6500

Mar 12, 2009

I need a new laptop and in my price range started looking at the Vostro 1510, then kept reading that the Vostro fans were noisy, so I looked at the Lenovo SL500. Then after reading conflicting reports, I stepped it up a bit and started looking at the Latitudes.

I can get refurbished Latitude E6500 in the outlet for a bit more. I am fairly accomplished computer user (just don't do hardware). Is it worth it? I have been reading postings about many problems on these as well so I'm just not sure what to do at this point.

I am definitely looking for a matte screen, and Windows XP, bluetooth, and camera. If I purchase the E6500 I would like the backlit keyboard. Are there any other features I should look for? On the E6500 which graphics card is recommended -- Intel or NIVIDIA?

So far nothing beats the mbp for the size. is mbp 5.5 lbs? so it seems the refurb is down to some decent pricing. is the 2.53 worth 150 dollars more? which is lower heat? is the 2.4 a p8600? just want to know a few tidbits of the laptops.

Apple :: Refurbished 2.53/2.8 MBP Or New 2.66 MBP

May 29, 2009

Just wondering your thoughts on the following dilemma. I can get my hands on a refurbished 2.53 or 2.8GHz Unibody MBP through a special promotion. The prices are 1239 or 1439 respectively. Alternatively I am going through Heathrow Tax Free soon and will be able to get a brand new 2.66GHz MBP for about 1490.

So what do you think? Brand new or refurbed? And which of the two refurbs to go for? Did the recent processor bump (2.53--->2.66) bring any other changes that I would miss?

Holding off until WWDC may cost me the cheaper deal as the promotion is strictly while stocks last.

Apple :: Refurbished MBA (Rev A) Vs UMB

Jun 30, 2009

I've decided to permanently park my 15" MBP on my desk, connected to an external monitor, speakers, keyboard mouse etc and use it as my torrent / wireless print server, and buy a smaller mac to replace it.

I only used the MBP for safari, itunes, messenger, office apps, and watching movies on the go.

I have spotted a first gen Macbook Air 1.6 ghz and a unibody MB 2.0 ghz for $1099 Canadian in the refurbished store. I think this is a pretty good price for either one and I get the full 1 year warantee with the option of extending it.

The MB seems ideal, but I wouldn't mind having the Air as well. I remember the first gen Air had all sorts of problems. Do you think Apple fixed the problems in this particular unit before putting it back up for sale?

Dell :: Hardware Temperature Refurbished XPS M1730

May 20, 2010

Recently I bought refurbished XPS M1730. It was second hand refurbish i.e. no Dell warranty.

During normal work with CPU temperature ~~ 50-60C some loud fan(s) kicks in. It never switches off nor changes its RPM. Even if CPU temperature reads 42C.

Secondly T9400 CPU is throttled to lowest multiplier (6x vs. 12.5x max) and almost never goes up, regardless of CPU temperature.

Haven't notice any problems with GPUs. Air intakes: open. Room temperature: cool. Windows power savings settings: max performance. Latest BIOS, drivers etc. and so forth.

Would you say there's nothing wrong with this machine? The company that did the refurbish just told me so.

Second question. Using RMClock I locked highest CPU multiplier and got around 6.5K in 3DMark 06. Is this right for M1730 with T9400 and 2x8800gt sli?

Sony :: Refurbished Notebooks

Wondering about those of you who had experience with the Sony Refurb notebooks. My understanding is that they are basically new old model, but come with only 90 days warranty.

Apple :: Refurbished MBP 15"

Nov 15, 2009

I am looking to purchase a 15" MBP from apples refurb page. The model I am looking at is the Refurbished MacBook Pro 2.4GHz Intel Core 2 Duo. From what I can figure out, this may be last years unibody mb470 with the removable 4 hour battery. This unit also lists the dual video 9400m and 9600m gt. This is important to me and honestly it is the 1,299.00 price that is leaning me to this machine. I think the 13" may meet my needs just fine except for some layout work I do. But, with a 13" I am inclined to wait for the next refresh because the price of the current 13" may come down, or I may like the new i7 processor,(or whatever the new processor ends up being in there), and buy that. But with the 15", I want the 9600gt video and would not be able to afford the normal 1999.00 price point. So waiting would not help me get what I want/afford.

The one thing I can not figure out is if the 2.4GHz is in fact a Mb470 that includes an express card 34. It looks like it does in the picture but I can not find any test line that says this is included. I was wondering if someone has experience with Apple refurbished and knows if this unit includes the express card. I know in the new model this has been replaced with the sg card slot.....................

Dell :: Experiences Buying A Refurbished/dented Laptop From Outlet

May 19, 2009

I did not know about this Dell Outlet until I signed up here. The prices seem to be much lower than buying a new unit. I have my eye on a Dell M6400 unit..

So my question is, what are your experiences with a refurbished unit? By refurbished, are these units that have been rented out to businesses and returned? Will I be buying a 100% used unit? or does Dell replaces parts inside before selling them etc? Am I taking chances on these units or am I safe in terms of dependability?

Dell :: Putting A Refurbished M4400 Motherboard In A Latitude E6500. Worth It?

Dec 22, 2009

I am very curious with this Frankenstein-ish upgrade. I have seen both the Precision M4400 and the Latitude E6500 up close before and I do realize that both laptops use pretty much the same lower chassis and other modular internals with the only difference is the screen and screen bezel and touchpad unit.

With the exact port locations the same. Is it worth it to get a refurbished M4400 motherboard and swap it with a Latitude E6500 one and putting it in a fully working Latitude E6500?

The reason I ask about this is a friend of mine's mother works for a company that resells their ~1 year old Latitudes for a really cheap price (I think Latitude E6500's go around $250-$350 a piece!) and replace them with newer Latitudes and (rarely Precisions) from Dell the following year.

Dell :: Is A Reliable Computer Too Much To Ask For?

Jan 6, 2010

Just got off the phone with XPS Support.. Not too happy.

I was on my computer earlier, and it froze. Left it alone for 20 mins before having to reboot. The HDD light was Stuck on. Got stuck on the windows start, once again with the HDD light on. Tried the startup repair, same thing.

Thought something in Windows mightve gotten screwed, so I tried launching the Dell Recovery. Nope, got same thing, hdd light stuck on.

Ok, thought it mightve screwed up the recovery partition, so I toss in the Dell windows 7 cd. Got stuck on the setup is starting with the hdd light on.

After reading the m1340 hdd light on thread, I put in my retail windows 7 cd. Got stuck at the same place, so I broke down and called support.

The rep had me do a pre boot assessment. Within 10 secs of launching it, my computer is beeping and flashing the keys indicating a failed hard drive. Even tho I can see it in the BIOs

Just ing great.

Is it really unreasonable to just get a computer that just works? I've had this computer for less than a month and have babied it. It came out of the packaging and has lived on my desk since.

Then, to top it off, my "next business day" onsite repair means the tech (which makes no sense, they won't ship it to me even tho I'm DCSE) will get the part in 2-3 days, arrange a time 3-5 days after that.

Dell :: Massive Computer

Aug 17, 2009

My friend has a Dell Inspiron 1520 laptop with Windows Vista 32 bit Home Premium.

He got multiple viruses or his computer last week which led to many problems. While we were trying to remove the viruses, I think one of the antispyware programs deleted a system file since a system file had a virus in it. After restarting, the computer said "Missing Operating System". We've tried many things but to no avail. We would like to use the Dell Recovery Partition, but I can't seem to load up the Recovery Tool so it can boot the recovery partition. We've tried holding ctrl-F11 but nothing happens. In the mean time I've been able to boot up a live version of Ubuntu linux from a USB drive.

Is there any possible way to boot the recover partition and restore Windows?
