Dell :: Inspiron 1501 Will Not Power On. LED Code: Caps And Scroll Lock Illuminated
My fiance has had an Inspiron 1501 for some time. Today after she put the computer to sleep, the PC would not come out of sleep mode (typical windows problem); however,

button the fan kicks on and then the screen stays black and the CAPS lock and SCROLL lock lights come on and stay illuminated. I could not find the POST code for these two lights remaining on. I've tried re-seating the processor, as well as cleaning out the heat sinks.

I'm afraid that the PC may have overheated and fried the board/processor/some component, but I wanted some advice before I began searching for a new laptop

Acer :: Caps Lock , Num Lock Osd What Software
what application gives the osd for the caps lock/num lock that normally shows at the bottom right of the screen, I have volume osd so it must be separate to that.

I wiped and re-installed my os yesterday.

The 5810T does not have an led for caps lock or num lock so the osd indicator is invaluable.

Sony :: Caps Lock Light Doesn't Work Anymore
my CS.

sony tech did a repair on my laptop and when he was done, a piece of the trim wasn't flush near the LCD hinge. To fix this, I put a drop of krazy glue under the hinge (it snaps off) on the panel above the keyboard and was able to fix the problem cleanly.

The problem is, I noticed my caps lock light no longer turns on. I have no clue when this could have happened, since it was under a couple repairs before. But, my worry is my warranty. Do you think they'll complain about replacing it if they see I had to glue a piece together? On the other hand, the light module screws into this panel so, technically they don't need to replace this panel, just the light module.

Dell :: Constantly Blinking HDD LED On E5500
I'm worrying because of the following issue on my new E5500:

The HDD LED is constantly blinking with one second frequency. I'm using WIN XP, this blinking can not be seen in BIOS, but I can see it with a Live XP, and it's also blinking when XP install starts,

but there are not any processes.Because of the mentioned reasons, this could not be because of indexing, or pagefile (additionally I have tried to turn them off, and blinking remained)

I've reported this issue to Dell, and the HDD was replaced, but I still can experience the blinking.

Dell :: Precision M6400 Dock
We currently have many Latitude D830s with the D/Dock stations on lease. When the lease runs out on these, I'd like to get some M6400s.

Are there any similar docking stations available? We currently drive 3 external LCD monitors plus use the lid on each, but 1900x1200 on a 15.4" screen is starting to affect my eyes as I feel the effects of age.

The only docks I've found so far are the port replicators and it looks like you can't use the lid with two monitors. We'd be willing to sacrifice one monitor, but not two. We also don't want to switch to desktops due to frequent travel?

Dell :: Precision M6400 Exposed
Well with the arrival of my second M6400, this one now detailed in my Sig, the first order of buisness was to drop in two 320 GB 7200 RPM drives and my OEM QX9300 CPU.

So open this baby up I did, and this time I took some shots and will add some comments out the process.

Step One.

Remove the Battery, bottom Base assembly cover, and hard drives.


Step Two.

Remove laptop LED Cover (Bezel) - this requires some care as the power on cable is connected on the underside of the bezel right by the power button.

Also if you have the finger print reader there is a very small ribbon cable that has to be disconnected - carefully, From this exeperiance I suggest placing the bezel at the top of the laptop and after removing the keyboard disconnect the ribbon cable from the main board - it was much easier to reconnect this way, and I dam near broke the small connector on the bezel end.


Step three.

Remove the 4 screws for the keyboard and slide the keyboard upwards toward the screen to disconnect it from the laptop.


Step four.

Flip the laptop over and remove the four m2.5 x 8 mm screws .....

Dell :: Precision M6400 Review
First Impressions:

Was a little underwhelmed when first opened the box, in part because it looks like a gray laptop - nothing special. Once hefted out (yes tis a bit on the heavy side) began to realise how solid this thing is.

The base is one solid chunk of alloy - built like a tank where is the E1705 has a alloy base this is this is twice as thick. Booted it up and found they had a new installation of Vista Business 64 bit - had a bit of a play then thought time to play with Windows 7 64 bit .....

Dell :: About To REVIEW The Precision M6400
Well i have had my Dell Precision M6400 for about two weeks and i want to do a comprehensive review (with video) as part of my school project.

I am studying multimedia Technology and Design and I am just in my second year. So my skill level is still as good as average. We were tasked to create a website portfolio and market both ours and our partners.

Am still in the process of apply finishing touches to the site(it isnt live yet) and after much deliberation about my marketing strategy. I have decided to use the video/written review as part of my means to promote my site and draw in my audience.

Dell :: Precision M6400 Or Alienware M17x
Ive been hunting around for a laptop for a couple of months now and ive still not decided what to get lol, i was initially drawn to the M17x but here in the uk we seem to be paying well over the odds for one compared to the US.

I was looking on ebay earlier and i came across a couple of Dell Precision M6400 laptops with what looks like a huge spec for a decent price, they seemed to offer more value than the M17x at their respective prices.

Now what i need to know is what is the difference between a Precision M6400 and a Precision M6400 Covet ?

How well regarded is a Precision M6400, is it known as a gaming laptop as ive not come across them before.

This is the spec i was looking at, how would this compare against an M17x, how well regarded is the processor and graphics card and the spec in general? ...

I dont want to pay the extra for the 3700m so im left with the choice of the alienware m17x or the Precision. Because its for work and trying to look perfessional i dont think the alienware fits but if the 2700 wont game it will have to do.

Dell :: Precision M4400 WXGA+ LED Screen: Samsung Vs. LG (with Pics)
after reading some post about the better display for the WXGA+ on the M4400, I could hardly belief that someone that only saw the Samsung screen claims the LG screen is the worse one. In the past the LG screen were the better ones. Even in the other notebooks of the E-Series the LGs are the better screens, so I went and searched someone with the a M4400 but a different screen manufacturer.

Dell :: M6400 Display Swap To LED RGB
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 :: Precision M6400 Screen Color As Blue Push/tint
17" UltraSharp™ WXGA+ (1440x900) LCD Display
NVIDIA Quadro FX 2700M, 512MB Discrete
Windows XP Pro

I got my Dell M6400 in about 10 days ago and immediately noticed a bluish/purplish tint in the grays. I compared it to my other two laptops and several desktops and it is definitely off. I connected my desktop monitor to the video out on the M6400 and it looks like it is suppose to.

After trying about everything possible, I contacted support and they immediately sent someone out to replace the LCD. The tech noticed it as well and agreed that it was not (or at least should not) be normal. I have never seen a screen do this before.

At any rate... Dell is sending me a new machine, but I am worried that this might be something that is inherent with this video card and LG screen combination.

I simply cannot imagine this being inherent and Dell allowing laptops to go out with the problem. I can't even imagine how they could have tested the screen and not noticed the problem.
