Dell :: [Got Picture, Got Talk] XPS M1330 DIY Cooling Device

Jun 1, 2009

I noticed that one of the best cooling pads here, the ACRyan cooling pad, ain't doing must good for this heat monster, so, I decided to DIY my own cooling device. Note that when I'm at home, I'm outputting my laptop to dual monitors, 20" and 27" Dell monitors, and connecting separate keyboard and mouse to it, speakers as well. AKA a desktop.

Materials:
1. 2 packets ice cream sticks
2. Good pair of scissors
3. White glue (hardens to clear)
4. 6V, 500mA USB Fan

Disclaimer: I'm not planning to type on the laptop while using this device. Due to the hot nature of this laptop, it's meant for cooling it while playing back 1080p movies, and games, while outputting to the monitors.

Part 1:
I was eyeing this fan at my workplace, a retail store in Singapore... Wind output is amazing. Picture taken for size comparison to desktop.


Part 2:
"engine" of the fan when taken apart


Part 3:
Creating the base... I used stacks of squared ice cream stick cutouts for added stability.


Part 4:
Checking the height clearance halfway through...


Part 5:
Front view of Part 4...


Part 6:
Almost done with height clearance...


Part 7:
Placing "weights" to press down the glue to dry...


Part 8:
Angled view of Part 7 .....

Dell :: Other Ways Of Cooling An M1330 Apart From The Copper Mod?

Mar 19, 2010

What other things can i do to prevent overheating? I can't do the copper mod as it will be under warranty.

Depending on temps when i get it i will probably change the thermal paste with some arctic silver. I'll also undervolt the cpu and the gpu but will this be enough? I'm also looking at a cooling platform and i have a griffin stand which will get some air underneath it. Depends how hot it gets under load but are there any other tweaks i can perform or mods to improve cooling that wouldn't void the warranty?

Dell :: Vista Ultimate 64 Bit Restarted And Now Get No Bootable Device Found [xps M1330]

Oct 15, 2008

I was doing some work on my Windows Vista Ultimate 64 bit on the XPS m1330 laptop and when i decided to restart, i got the no bootable device found message.

I ran diagnostics, no errors found.

When i put in the vista ultimate disc and NOT press anything. It will boot into windows.

When I do not have it in. It will tell me no bootable device found.

The hard drive does show in device info in bios.

Im running the chkdsk c: /f /r from command prompt in vista repair thing.

I wonder what message i will get after i complete the chkdsk.

Would reinstalling windows as a whole fix this problem?

Dell XPS M1330 :: Error Auto-sensing Internal Hard Disk / No Bootable Device Available

Nov 29, 2014

I cannot boot into Windows anymore. The error - Error auto-sensing internal hard disk, no bootable device available' comes up.

I've removed & reinserted the disk tray but the error persists.Even in the BIOS the hard drive doesn't show up and  cannot be detected by Diagnostics either.

I removed it from the laptop and connected it to my desktop and its working fine. So my guess is the problem is not with the disk. The laptop is out of warranty.

Dell :: XPS M1210 LCD Images As Water Color Picture?

I've got an XPS M1210 with NVidia GeForce 7400 and since last week all the pictures or videos appear blurry with artifacts, somehow like watercolor paints or with burn efect pictures.

Other observation: on the Windows locking blue screen (see below picture), instead the clear light blue on upper left corner, I can see something like a sun with round circles around effect .....

Dell Venue 11 Pro :: Picture Password And PIN Not Shown On Login

Jul 8, 2014

This applies to my Venue 11 Pro (Atom).

I have set up a PIN but never get the option to use it, I am only ever challenged for my Microsoft Account and password at login

I also set up a picture password but get exactly the same behaviour, i.e.I am ALWAYS challenged for my Microsoft account and password.

I have used this login feature before on my previous Surface 2 but the Venue 11 Pro (fully updated) just will not behave as expected.

I turn on my laptop and there is no picture, the power light comes on, but no picture, it is black screen and then it is beeping continuously. This is all it will do.

Lenovo ThinkPad W Series :: Unknown Device In Device Manager After Win 8.1 Upgrade On W540

Aug 29, 2014

I'm using the W540 with an ultradock and external monitors. After upgrading my W540 to win8.1 64 bit, device manager is showing an unknown device. I'm not quite sure what it is, but almost everything seems to be working fine and Lenovo solution center isn't finding any driver updates.
 
I did notice that the solution center hardware scan did not test the video card memory and listed that test as N/A. Video and monitors seem to be working fine though and both nvidia and intel graphics show up in device manager.
 
Device manager lists the device in question as follows:
Device instance path: ROOTSYSTEM001
Hardware Ids: rootiwdbus
Device stack: DriverPnPManager

Lenovo 11e E/Edge :: Unknown Device In Device Manager - E330 Notebook

Jan 17, 2014

I have just installed Windows 8.1 x64 on my Lenovo E330.

I downloaded drivers from the website, and installed all of them. But after that there's one device listed as Unknown in device manager, and I can't figure our which device it is.

 Hardware ID is {48126E0D-4BDD-4D26-8A24-569C7AB522D6}SettingsDriver, so that doesn't identify the device.

Info from Solution Centre: Product: 3354AF7

Lenovo B590 B / G Series :: When Try To Check Sound Device Window Pops Up - Device Is Already In Use By Another Application

Jul 20, 2014

Faced with the problem. No sound after the laptop. When you try to check the sound device, a window pops up "the device is already in use by another application." But no program is not running. After rebooting the laptop sound occurs. Drivers are all set.

Audio device Realtek ALC269
Win 7 Pro SP1 (x64) with all updates
Motherboard 20208
Chipset Intel Panther Point HM77
BIOS Version H5ET84WW(1.22) (11/26/2013)

UEFI boot mode, not Legacy.Drivers for sound downloaded from realtek.com.tw. With standard windows drivers sound is always there. Tried the previous version of the drivers - ineffectually. Could it be that the problem is due to the UEFI boot mode? I do not want to reinstall the OS mode Legacy just to check it out.

Acer :: Aspire V3-572G Picture Breaks Up After Having It On For About 30 Minutes

Sep 13, 2014

this all started when I first purchased my laptop (Aspire V3-572G-54S6, Windows 8.1) when it was on sale for a great price in mid-August. I had heard great things about Acer, loved the specs and look, and was excited to get it. It arrived a few days later, took it out of the box and with the first start up my display was messed up. About 1/4 up the screen tear a little and the top of the screen was being duplicated at the bottom........never had that happen before so I got in touch with Acer support chat, I updated video drivers, rebooted, did a complete power drain, etc. The problem persisted so they had me send it in for servicing. I got it back from servicing just about 2 weeks ago, and it was fixed! Or at least it was until this past Wednesday when the problem returned. Now the problem only occurs when I've had it on for 30minutes to 1 hour, as it is fine on start up. The service log/sheet I got back with it said all they did was software updates, updated BIOS, and nothing hardware related.

HP/Compaq :: DV9000 104-unsupported Wireless Network Device Detected. System Halted. Remove Device And Restart

Nov 13, 2009

I have the DV9000 series Laptop. It is the DV9235NR model (but not the DV9200 series...shows DV9000 on the bottom).

Anyways...I decided to try to upgrade the interal wireless G with a wireless N card that is from HP. It has the HP part number and everything. When I put the card in, this error comes up. I read that the bios doesn't recongnize the card. I took the card out, booted up to Windows with my old wireless card, put the computer in sleep mode, took out the old card and put the new card in. Works perfect. I know the card it good.

How can I make the new card work without having to do this? I heard about a bios hack. How is this done? Could I modify the Wifi card also? I did update to the newest bios on my laptop (dated 2008) and that didn't work. How about a bios from another series laptop?

HP Pavilion Dv5-1183cl OS/Software :: Missing Base System Device Drivers / Unknown Device / Battery Not Charging

Sep 7, 2014

I have an HP Pavilion dv5-1183cl that has been upgraded from Windows Vista to Windows 7 Ultimate (32bit) and I have some issues.I have four errors showing up in my device manager, three Base System Device and one Unknown Device, and I don't know what they are or where to get the drivers (since I don't know what they are). Additionally, the battery will not charge (there does not appear to be anything wrong with it physically). I am wondering if the below errors are related to the battery issue. Below are the hardware IDs for each error entry.
 
Base System Device (PCI bus 6, device 0, function 1):
