Dell :: Inspiron 1318 Question!

Mar 17, 2009

I am considering getting a new Dell laptop for school (word processing, internet browsing, etc.),

however, it will be a Dual core processor rather than a Core 2 duo, does it make a difference and do you think it is worth paying an extra $100 to upgrade to a core2duo?

Furthermore, does anyone own this laptop or have any additional information they can provide concerning the performance of this laptop?

Dell :: Inspiron 1318 Upgrade [CPU]

Jan 25, 2009

I got a Dell Inspiron 1318 from Walmart when it first got on the market. I like the machine, a decent keyboard, upgraded the memory and it is all good - except for the T2390 CPU.

I read the service manual and saw you can upgrade the CPU. What is the maximum CPU you can use to replace the T2390 for this laptop?

If anyone has any used resources or a used CPU - let me know I am interested in buying.

Dell :: How To Switch Your Inspiron 9300 WUXGA LCD Into An Inspiron 9400P

Aug 1, 2007

Guide to Switching your Inspiron 9300/M170 WUXGA into the Inspiron 9400/M1710:

You can't simply replace the display screens. The instructions below must be followed for your screen to work properly.

Required Materials:
- Small Phillips (I used #0 Phillips)
- Either 2 monitors (9400 and 9300) or part #YPNL-N017B (Google the # to buy it).

Step 1: Remove the display assembly. Dell has an excellent guide for this on their website.
[url] Click on Display)

Step 2: Remove the LCD Bezel (the gray trim around the screen). This requires removing the screws under the circular pads. I used a small flathead to pry open the bezel.

Step 3: Remove the 8 screws around the sides of the LCD. This will make it so your screen can be taken out. Do not worry about any screws on the top, they are for other things.

Step 4: At the bottom of the screen, there is a green circuit board. On the left side, you will see a screw holding the wire down. Remove this.

Step 5: Remove the LCD screen from the case.

Step 6: Look at the bottom circuit board again. This is the board we need to swap! Disconnect the 2 connections on the board. There should be on on the bottom and one on the side that is white.

Step 7: There will be 3 silver screws holding the circuit to the screen. Remove these screws. Note: This requires a very small phillips. I used a #0 Phillips to do the trick.

Step 8: Repeat steps 1-7 for your other monitor OR if you don't have another will need to buy an inverter chip. The mfg # is YPNL-N017B. If you google that number, you should find a bunch of sites willing to sell it.

Step 9: Simply swap the bottom circuit boards between monitors or insert the new one that you bought.

Step 10: Follow steps 1-7 in reverse to reconnect everything back up! Before screwing everything back up. I suggest you plug it in first to test it out.

Congratulations. Your WUXGA LCD will now work properly on the Inspiron 9400. For anyone wondering, you MUST replace the bottom circuit board or the brightness controls will not work. You brightness will be stuck at the lowest setting and nearly impossible to see.

Dell :: Inspiron 15 (or 1535) & Inspiron 6400 (or E1505)

Feb 20, 2009

I am looking into replacing my old Dell Inspiron 6400, as it has been excellent -I think I should buy another Dell!

I am looking at the new Inspiron 15, which has a 15.6" display.

Can anyone tell me whether the actual laptop itself is bigger or smaller than my current 6400? I am interested in knowing width.

I see a lot of dead space on my 6400, and hopefully Dell realized this, and instead of making another 15.4" with dead space, they made use of this and gave a better display!

Dell :: Inspiron 15

Oct 16, 2009

I read review on
and it says:

The Inspiron 15 is fairly quiet, though at times the fans did get a bit noisy. Basically you won’t hear this notebook at all in an environment with ambient noise, but if you’re in a library like quiet environment you might bother those nearby with some fan noise."

Dell :: Anybody Get An Inspiron 11z Yet?

Nov 4, 2009

I got a phone status update a couple of days ago that said it was supposed to ship by Nov 5th (tomorrow). Normally when I order stuff from Dell, it shows up a lot sooner, but I guess the 11z is a hot item so it's taking longer.

I ordered mine pretty decked out... I got the dual-core Pentium CPU, 320 gig hard drive, Wireless N card, etc. I'll probably still stick a 500 gig drive in it and use the 320 as an external.

Dell :: My Old Inspiron 9300

Dec 18, 2007

BEEN a While and A long time...
I currently order a Pentium M 735 1.7 Ghz 400FSB to overclock up to 2.26Ghz@533Mhz. Still waiting on shipping. Anyways, I am looking forward about upgrade my GPU Go 6800 OCed 370Mhz/700Mhz to Go 7800 (NON-GTX).

Yeah, GTX one is pricey for me.

I am wondering does the Non GTX version of Go 7800 still need 130Watts Adapter?

I did a lot of search all I could find is people talks about 7800GTX version.

In my thought I think 6800 to 7800 different is more pipelines and pixel fill rates and etc and the power needed is the same. Right?

So do I need 130 watts or I just keep 90 watts adapter which is perfect for NON-GTX Go 7800

Dell :: Inspiron 13 Vs XPS M1330

Oct 19, 2008

I've owned a Dell XPS M1330 for about a year and am very happy with it. I want to buy a laptop for somebody as a gift, and I was thinking about the Inspiron 13, which I never actually saw. I know it's basically the lower quality brother of the 1330, I'm just wondering how lower the quality is.

Can any of you Inspiron 13/M1330?

Dell :: Six Months With Inspiron 13

Mar 30, 2009

The main points which I'm pretty happy about are:

Long battery lifeCool and quiet operation of the machineSmall form factorRelatively lightFlawless, bright and crisp displayKeyboard has a good feel to it
One of the major reasons I purchased this machine was because the hardware that came with it was plenty and mature. When I purchased the T400, the hardware was squeaky new but that brought with it tons of issues primarily with compatibility and bugs in the drivers. I'm a Linux user and the I13 worked out of the box with Debian and Ubuntu. The drivers are very stable and the machine is very quick.

This machine is *not* for gamers or heavy duty graphic artists. Its for the average Joes and Janes of the world who like to word process, surf the internet, watch movies and want to use Linux

I do have some gripes about this machine ( nothing is perfect you see ).The display seems to be a little loose. It wobbles while typing on a soft surface. Its not annoying but its something I dislike.It has only 2 USB ports. Dell could've put in atleast 3-4 ports. It would've been nice

Over all, my journey with this machine has been uneventful! Just the way I like it
