Dell :: Got A Call From Today About CompleteCare

Aug 6, 2009

I received a call from a guy who was clearly calling from India today about ComgpleteCare. It seemed that he already had all my info and apparently ordered CompleteCare before I even confirmed it.

My son had picked up the phone, was given a confirmation number, and my son then gave the phone to me. When I was given the phone, the guy said that he wanted to verify a few things. He asked me for my credit card number, which I stupidly gave to him. He then said that CompleteCare was ordered .....

Dell :: CompleteCare Warranty

May 30, 2010

I paid extra for 3 years of completecare when I bought my SXPS16. Recently, I found a number of scratches on the inside of the screen and called them up hoping for a replacement screen. They told me that I'd have to send it in. Do I really not have the onsite? I wouldn't have paid extra for the warranty had I known that they wouldn't send a tech if problems arose.

Dell :: Upgrading To CompleteCare...

Sep 22, 2009

So I have 2 days to decide whether I want the CompleteCare for my system which I've just bought or not. I have one question though..

Lets say my laptop breaks or I spill coffee all over it or whatever, will they be kind enough to send a better laptop as a replacement?

Dell :: CompleteCare Accidental Damage Protection WITHOUT Extended Warranty

Dec 26, 2009

When I bought my laptop, I was offered 5 years of Dell Complete Care Accidental Damage Protection even though I only had ONE year limited warranty. This was all over Dell Chat online support.

The representative assured me that I did NOT have to extend my warranty past one year in order to take advantage of five years of accidental care.

In other words, I would have no coverage on manufacturer's defects past the first year, but if I dropped my laptop four years down the road, Dell would replace or repair it.

Dell :: CompleteCare System Exchange Experience, E1505 --> Studio 1558

May 6, 2010

If you're just gonna tl;dr, read the first two and the very last paragraph, and look at the specs in sig.

I searched pretty thoroughly through the forums when I started my completecare process, but found no info, so I think this might be helpful for other people wondering what the Complete Care System Exchange / Replacement Warranty process is like.

So I've had a number of parts placed on the e1505 I purchased in summer 2006, every single component and plastic at least once except for the screen itself, a wsxga+ 1680x1050 - they literally don't sell these in laptops anymore.

It took a catastrophic spill outside my house on April 21st (i think), I tried to save it, but couldn't - screen had shattered, back left corner had bent up about an inch (heatsink assembly included), right hinge torn apart, but it still booted! I could plug in an external monitor and get somewhat though the boot phase (never bothered to fully boot back into windows after that)

Called in on the 22nd, they next-dayed a box, and i shipped it out on the 23rd.

Depot got in on the 28th according to FedEx, but I hadn't heard from them so I called in on the 29th to find out that the depot had in fact found there was fatal damage, and they were waiting on approval for a System Exchange .....

Dell :: New XPS 13 Gfx Card Today

Oct 2, 2009

I recently ordered the Studio XPS 13 (1340) with the Nvidia 9500M hybrid SLI GFX card.

I check the website today and they now offer the Nvidia Geforce N10m- GS as a video card option, this is the code name for the Geforce G 210M!

I called dell and they were nice enough to update my order.

I cannot find a single benchmark on this hybrid SLI config (still using the integrated 9400m I assume).

I might be one of the first to benchmark it! You can expect a review.

Dell :: Got 4x D630 Today. Need More.

Jan 8, 2009

I had just placed an order for 3 Latitude D630, but by an error I ordered 4 of them, it does not really matter as I could send it back,

but I am not sure yet if I might need it or not as I initially only needed 3 of them.

I was planning to use them for some side training with my company, where I will use these computers to teach the other employees in various programs, like Photoshop, Flash, Dreamweaver (I am a Adobe fan),

also the office 2007 package as many have not made the transition yet, also some needs the basic of Vista imprinted in their brain so that they may work more efficiently.

I also just love the look of the Latitude computers, they are so plain and not full of lights and useless buttons placed in the wrong places .....

Dell :: Missing Resolutions From Call Of Duty 4

Aug 30, 2009

Got my studio xps 16 yesterday, love it but have an issue. In call of duty 4 i can only seem to get a limited number of resolutions even if i change the aspect ratio from 4:3, 16:9 etc. For example i have no resolution in between 1280*1024 and 1920*1080. Need a 1600*1200 option. Changing the aspect ratio in l4d gave me more options but this fix doesnt work in cod 4.

Dell :: XPS M1530 And Call Of Duty 4Lag

Sep 24, 2008

I just last week received my 1530 and loaded COD4 on it 2 days ago. It plays well, but when the action gets intense, I get a pretty serious frame lag.

I have played around with the settings in an attempt to resolve it, but don't really know what I am doing or where to start. Can someone recommend the first few most effective settings changes?

Dell XPS M1530 | T8300 | 4GB RAM | 15.4" LED LCD (1440x900) | 256MB 8600M GT | 320GB 7200RPM | Vista Home Premium |

Dell :: Worth It To Call And Try To Haggle On A Coupon'd 1555

Jul 8, 2009

I've got a 1555 spec'd out with a 25% discount coupon code applied($1154 to $865).
I was wondering if anyone thought it was worthwhile to call Dell up and try to get them to offer me an even better deal. There's nothing else I really want....I mean, I guess they could up me from a P8600 to a P8700, but that's about it. So I wonder if I could get them down to an even $800.
Any thoughts or recommendations? I'm on a very limited budget, so every bit helps...

Dell :: Call Of Duty 4 After Replaced My Video Card

Mar 9, 2008

So the technician successfully replaced my video card and everything was great and fine with the world. I tried it out on Call of Duty 4 and checked the temps which peaked at a MUCH lower level so I thought I was good to go and I was happy. The only problem I had was a small amount of choppyness in the game, but I just figured I had the settings too high and I had not overclocked it at all. No problem.... So now today I wanted to play good old Oblivion and I figured this would need some overclocking because well....its Oblivion. So I start up ATI Tool and overclock it to around 620 mhz core and 720 mhx memory...Not too much overclock considering some of you have got yours to like 650 or higher and 800 in the memory department... Well I was just about to start playing when after the game loads there is no character on the screen just grey lines... So I figure maybe I overclocked it to much? I turned it down about 10 to 20 mhz and I still had some artifacts? I pretty much turned overclocking so far down I would now consider it slightly pushing the card. So I try to play oblivion and it is really choppy. Before I got this new card I had some pretty bad heat problems and crashing because of it, but I could overclock it to a MUCH higher level than that of this non heat problematic card?

So my question to all of you highly intelligent and knowledgeable people of this forum is do I have a bum card or is something else the matter? Sorry for such a long post I just felt my story needed to be fully explained so I could receive the best support...

HP/Compaq :: 2530p Arrived Today :) XP Or Vista

Jun 2, 2009

I finally received my 2530p today, and it's a thing of beauty

The only slightly annoying bit is that HP delivered a British wall contact instead of a general European one, probably because I ordered a British keyboard. But I might still have a suitable cable somewhere, or use an adapter instead.

Anyway, Vista is preinstalled on this computer and I could also opt for XP instead. The manual doesn't say how to do that. Can smoeone explain to me how to install XP? Someone mentioned earlier that I should make a backup disk for Vista anyway. So what's the general workflow? Get the computer up and running as is, make backup disk, somehow install XP over it?

With the base Macbook Pro, how will the following titles work:

1.) TF2
2.) L4D
3.) Call of Duty: Modern/WaW

I'm guessing the default of 2gig ram is going to hurt. I would upgrade in the near future to 4. I'm not looking to put AA/AF on, but I would like a smooth framerate at the native resolution.

Dell :: Fewer Screen Choices Vs

Is it normal that would have fewer choices of screens than I'm looking at the studio 15, and lists Hi Resolution/Bright,

glossy widescreen 15.4 WLED display (1440x900) as a choice, which is what I want, but doesn't. When I view the system specs though, that choice is listed as on option.

Dell Vostro 3460 :: Not Boot Only Loads The Dell Logo And Then Shows A Black Page

Feb 9, 2013

my laptop vostro 3460 won't boot any more. When I turn it on it loads the Dell logo (I suppose it passes the POST) but then it just shows a black page. It could be anything, but I guess that it may have something to do with Windows 8 and the UEFI system. I also would be quite happy to install linux mint and get rid of Windows, but I don't know how to change the boot priority order.

So my questions are:

1 is it a hardware issue ? if not, can I solve my problem easily ?

2 how can I change the boot priority order, to install mint ?
