Dell :: Help! Studio XPS 1340 Thrashing Briefly And Loudly, Then Beeping, Then Freezing?

Oct 24, 2009

I've had this happen to me two times in the past two days on a month old machine. I'll be surfing the net, then i'll hear what sounds like very brief HD thrashing (but a bit louder than normal thrashing sounds)

for a few moments, then there'll be rapid beeping sounds and my laptop will freeze.

Dell :: Studio XPS 1340 Random Beeping

Aug 9, 2009

My Studio XPS 1340 runs just fine, it's not overheating or anything, but once in a while it randomly just beeps. I think it must be an internal buzzer, it sounds like it comes from the left hand side of the keyboard somewhere. It's not too big of a deal, but Id just like to know why it randomly does this.

Acer Aspire 7740G :: Beeping On Startup And Freezing Randomly?

Sep 19, 2014

My Acer 7740G has been acting strange lately, it makes a beeping noise of approximately 45 beeps (not exactly sure, because as they are quite quick) when it is restarted. When it is turned off and on everything is fine, the beeping is only when it is being restarted.
 
Also it freezes randomly no matter what games/programs/apps are running. For example it freezes while playing heavy game, and also while playing Minesweeper with nothing else running in the background. I had to reinstall Windows several times, but the freezing keeps occuring without bsod. Also when restart is needed during installation it beeps like that every time on startup.

Dell :: Studio XPS 13Hard Disk Beeping?!

Feb 15, 2009

My new Studio XPS 13 hard disk often emits a beeping noise when it is being accessed. Is this normal behaviour and can I turn it off?

I noticed the beeping from the first time I turned it on. The beeping only occurs once Vista is booted (i.e. not while booting up), and when performing tasks like copying files or running a virus scan.

Dell :: Studio 17 Beeping Noises From Inside

Jun 18, 2009

This is a very strange one , I have a Studio 17, and it has never had any kind of noises coming from the inside, however, in the past few weeks I have been hearing beeps that are coming from inside the laptop not from the speakers. Its a single beep, and does not have a pattern such as beep every 4 or 5 seconds it beeps when it feels like beeping, usually one short beep.

I called Dell, and the tech guy told me that beeping was " normal " and I should not be concerned over it. Can you believe that jerk? "beeping sounds from inside are normal "? I dont think so.

I have tried to think of anything inside this thing that can beep or why I would be getting these beeps and I cant come up with a thing. Originally I thought it was possibly a CMOS battery going bad, but Dell says the battery wont make it beep, then I thought maybe its overheating, but then when I feel the laptop its' barely warm, so Im at a loss.

This beeping is intermittent, it will beep for a while, then stop, then later on or the next day it might beep again for a few hours then stop again.

Anyone have any suggestions on what could beep from inside the laptop? the sound seems to be right near where the hard drives are located if I put my ear to the touchpad area I think thats the area it originates in.

Dell :: Studio 1555 Won't Boot, No Display, Beeping Sounds

Nov 17, 2009

I went to turn on my Studio 1555 this morning about an hour ago, and nothing happened. The power light came on, as did the keyboard backlights, but nothing else. The display stayed off and unlit, and the thing started spewing beeps at me. First a series of three loud beeps: one long beep and two shorter ones (beeeeeep beep beep), a slight pause, and then a series of 6 softer short beeps. Dell's website and service manual have been no help, and I can't seem to find these beep codes anywhere. Also, I ran out of warranty months ago.

I've tried removing the memory sticks, swapping them, relocating them, tried different sticks and different slots, removed the WLAN and Bluetooth cards, and removed the hard drive.

Dell Inspiron 1545 :: Laptop Won't Turn On But Beeps Loudly

Jan 28, 2013

I am having troubles with my dell inspiron 1545. It has been working fine, but I just tried to switch it on, and it won't boot. After pressing the 'on' button, the cd drive flashes and makes a noise, like it normally does when I switch the laptop on. Then nothing happens for a whole minute, and then a loud repetitive beep starts. It's 4 beeps in a row, which then gets repeated. I have let the beep continue, but it doesn't seem to stop, unless I either press the 'on' button again or take the battery out.

Dell :: Studio 1555 FREEZing!

Feb 13, 2010

I just received my new Studio 1555 with Core2 P8600, 4GB RAM, Windows7 64Bit.

It freezes up on me at lease twice daily. I can't spot the problem, it has froze once when using excel, many times watching youtube videos and once using a tax software.

Everything just hangs and freezes. Can't do anything, have to hold the power button down. A few times when youtube froze, the sound stayed but in a frozen state.

What can it be?

Dell sent me some additional ram to upgrade to 8GB but that hasn't helped.

I have updated all drivers.

Please help. I'm tired of waiting on the phone and going through with Dell for hours and hours.

Dell :: Studio 1558 Freezing, Unresponsive

May 14, 2010

Had this Studio 1558 for about a week now. It's been mostly good, except it's been freezing for no good reason every so often. I'm not getting error messages, BSODs, automatic restarts, or any of that. The screens just stop responding.

I suspected it was a bad Win7 install, so I wiped and reinstalled Win7HPx64. Still froze.
Went back to a single-monitor setup, still froze.
Tried updating to the Catalyst 10.04 drivers, still froze.
Disabled Powerplay, still froze.
Changed AV/Firewall and uninstalled a pile of crap, still froze.
Installed XP, then Ubuntu, still froze.

Odd thing? Nothing in the event viewer to indicate a crash, other than the fact that a kernel power error shows up because I force a shutdown. I've yet to find a .dmp file anywhere that would indicate an actual BSOD. Fan never spun up, CPU monitors and logs don't show any sudden spike or drop in processor activity. Think the 4570 is busted?

*edit*
just recalled, I've also changed power settings so the CPU can't throttle, been monitoring all 8 cores, ran off battery and off ac, all to no effect.

happens whether i'm streaming video via hulu desktop, just browsing webpages, running virus scans, or just doing mostly nothing. ran the gamut of dell diagnostics, but nothing.

Dell :: Studio 1737 Freezing On Lid Closed

Jan 3, 2010

I decided to reinstall everything and make some hardware upgrades. Fisrt of all I upgraded BIOS, DVD firmware etc. Then I installed Win7x64 (proffesional), previously I had Ultimate RTM version.

After all almost everything is working fine. System is working great except one thing - something is wrong about power management. Sleep, hibernation and poweroff option is working ok. There is problem with lid only - when it's closed external monitor is turned off (that's ok) and main LCD is black (but backlited).

Music is still playing, but also that soon is gone (I always play that from Internet). Fans are working as usual, LCD is not completely turned off, music stops, keyboard is somehow working (i.e. Fn+F10 - dvd key), but I can't do anything with computer then.

The only thing that is working then it's holding down power button to turn off computer hard.

In power options I tried to change some options about lid. On plugged in - closing lid: do nothing .....

Dell :: Studio XPS 1340 Replacement

Apr 6, 2010

The 1640/45/47 owners and the m1330 owners have their respective replacements threads. There has also been a concern about getting Alienware instead of XPS thread. So I created this thread because the Studio XPS 1340 has reached EOL and is no longer offered as a replacement. Thus, I would like 1340 owners' help in tracking and monitoring replacements.

Please specify experiences regarding:What are the specs of your current XPS 1340?What system was received in lieu of the SXPS 1340? Specs? New or Refurb?At what point were you aware of the system you were going to receive?How long did the systems' exchange process take?Did you attempt escalation or any form of negotiation?Are you happy with your replacement? .........

Dell :: Studio XPS 1340 Web Cam Software?

Mar 12, 2009

I had to to a complete fresh reinstall. The DVDs have no software for the webcam nor does the website. Just spent an hour with dell chat and remote checking and they cant figure it out.

They are sending someone out to replace the webcam - I think they are wrong - its a Vista 64/creative/Dell softare/driver issue. I had to do a reinstall after a BSOD. The camera worked fine until the BSOD.

Dell :: Studio XPS 1340 And Windows 7

Feb 26, 2009

I had been running Windows 7 for 2 weeks on my 13 and I kept on getting lockups. It would just freeze up. Only bios functions would work.

I had dell replace the motherboad, heatsinks and processor and it still locked up, the laptop was running really hot too.

I spoke to dell and they asked if I was running windows 7, I said yes, they said the laptop did not support 7 (yeah right) and I was to test under vista. So I reinstalled vista and the freezes totally stopped. Been running for one day solid now without a hitch.

I think there must be some driver conflicts running 7 which makes the laptop over heat.

Dell :: Studio XPS 1340 Up In Smoke

Mar 5, 2009

I was happily tapping away on my month-old 1340 (P8600, 4gb, 9500m, 320gb) today, when all of a sudden...

The screen went bright white. Then flickered a bit. Then... smoke started coming out of the left hinge area! It soon switched off.

Dell will be getting a phone call tomorrow!

Dell :: Studio XPS 1340, Win 7 And Firefox

Oct 17, 2009

I've been running Windows7 on my laptop for a good month now, or longer, and I've always had this issue with Firefox, it constantly crashes. I can't really reproduce it at will, but its often enough that in a one hour browsing session it can crash 2-3 times.

All drivers are up to date, Firefox is up to date...I run the same on my desktop and have never had an issue so it must be something specific.

Dell :: Heating In Studio XPS 1340

Apr 2, 2009

I am thinking about buying a studio XPS 1340. The only thing holding me back is the heating issue.

If the heating only comes from intense use of the graphics card (ie gaming) then that's not too much of an issue for me.

If there isn't a lot of heat generated from web/email, watching videos and running applications, then I think I'd be ok with it.

Dell Iraq :: Studio Xps 1340

Mar 6, 2010

I've already had a number of minor, yet unfixed problems:
-cannot hibernate without freezing
-strip of touch-buttons become unusable
-strip of touch-buttons don't illuminate, or some do and others don't
-keypad occasionally sticks during typing
-touchpad becomes unusable

what bothered me most, however, is last night when I was typing and all of a sudden many of the keypad buttons weren't going through unless I went back and hit them again. moreover was when I went to shutdown for the night, and after everything on the desktop disappeared in preparation for logging off and shutting down, only the wallpaper and mouse stayed up, for a little over five minutes; then the "logging off..." screen appeared, and stayed for over ten minutes, by which time I simply shutdown via pressing the power button. therefore when I started it up again this morning, it displayed the screen saying how an improper shutdown occurred previously, asking how to start. I said "start Windows normally" and so far so good, as usual.

Dell Studio XPS 1340 :: Does Not Shut Down

Feb 5, 2015

I have a Dell Studio XPS 1340 (mid 2010)

Windows 7 Home Premium

When I turn off the computer, it does not turn off all the time (sometimes it does, and most of the time it doesn't), the screen truns off like it wants to shut down, but then the computer hangs up, with the HDD disk light flashing, and it never shuts down, requiring a hard shut down.

I have not installed any new software...nothing different has happened, and I did try system restore, going back quite a ways, it did not work....

Dell Studio 1558 :: Cursor Jumping Erratically Or Freezing

Feb 20, 2013

My Dell Studio 1558 cursor is either jumping erratically or freezing. I have had the laptop for a few years but this problem only started a couple of weeks ago and has been getting worse.

When it freezes, I need to re-start the computer.

The jumping happens not just when I am typing, but even when using the touch pad.  It will move up and down and often close windows or click links.

I have checked and I have the most up to date device drivers.  I have also changed the sensitivity settings but to no avail.
