Dell :: Inspiron E1505 Battery Options?

Feb 3, 2009

My mother's Dell Inspiron e1505 needs a new battery. However, after she did research, she said that the OEM Dell batteries are really bad, and that 3rd-party options (such as Rayovac) are better.

I've always been told the opposite--that the OEM batteries are the best.

Dell :: Inspiron E1505 Battery

Dec 31, 2008

I have E1505 and my battery decided to die today.

I have a simple question. Does anyone tried out those generic 9 cells battery for inspiron 6400 (E1505)? are they any good? most of them (made in China).

I ask this question because they are really cheap (90$ for 9 cells and 60$ for 6 cells) compared to genuine dell batteries (289$ and 160$).

in addition dell genuine batteries for inspiron 6400 are really bad (doesn't last beyond one year), so it is a waste of money to buy these expensive batteries.

HP/Compaq :: HP DV7T Battery Options

Mar 11, 2010


running reasonably solid (and still on Vista!) I have definitely got my money's worth out of it like 1000X over .

Only a couple of issues - first, my charger went TU about 3 days before the 12 month warranty expired. I ran out and quickly snagged a Kensington replacement: pretty nice slimline that has multiple adapters, it's actually been handy as an upstairs 2nd charger. HP for the record, also sent me a brand new OEM replacement without too much hassle, just using on online service chat

OK, the matter I'm posting about: my battery has finally gotten wrecked to the point where it's good for about 15-18 minutes on performance, maybe 22-24 on low power settings.

I'd like to be semi-portable again so I'm weighing these options:

Another "stock spec" 8 cell, which I believe it a G08

I see HP offers (through various sellers) a "green" replacement, model G04. I don't think it has longer life, but it's supposed to be warranted for 3 years, plus offer a guarantee of much less charge loss (I think it's something like 95% availability the first year) and replaced pro-rated based on use. Sounds like a better option - the only thing I find peculiar is it's indicated as a 4-cell, with "8-cell" equivalent. I don't really case as long as it works!

My 3rd option is to go aftermarket with a 12-cell battery. The extra weight size isn't that big of a deal, and I even like the idea if the rear being elevated (in my office, I usually keep it hanging off the corner of the desk for better ventilation).

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 :: Replacing The CPU In An Inspiron E1505

Jun 28, 2009

My computer has the Intel Pentium T2080 processor. When I talked to Dell, they said that it couldn't be replaced but I noticed that it comes out of its standard PGA478 slot easily.

I would hate to spend the money for a new processor without knowing that it will work, so my question is will a core 2 work? If not, would a Pentium from the T2000 series such as the T2130 (the T2080's closest relative) work?

Dell :: Memory For My Inspiron E1505

Sep 25, 2009

I have a Dell Inspiron e1505 that is a couple of years old. I just bought it from a guy at work and it seems to be working pretty good.

I do a lot of photo editing and while I realize this is not a top machine for this, it works better than what I had. It now has 1G of memory in it and I think that I can up that to 2G max.

What should I be looking for and where is the best place to get it? I would like to buy local, but that may not be the best option as far as price goes.

Dell :: Inspiron E1505 Speakers

Aug 10, 2009

I just found this site and signed up. Looks like some good info here. I have a couple of questions if you all don't mind.

I just bought a gently used e1505 from a friend at work. He just got a Macbook Pro.
The laptop seems to be working great so far. I am replacing my tower at home with this and am trying to figure a couple things out.

1. I have pair of Boston speakers with a sub that I used with my tower. I remember that in the audio settings, there was a box to tic for "Digital Output" and I had to tick that box to get the speakers to work.

I cannot find that box on the e1505 and I cannot get the speakers to works by just plugging them in. What am I doing wrong here?

Dell :: Ram Upgrade For Inspiron E1505... (speed Q)

Jul 19, 2009

I'm running stock 2x 512 mb 533 Mhz ram right now.

I would like to upgrade but I can't find information about my motherboard ANYWHERE. It's not listed on the dell system specs website, either.

So, my question comes down to which would be better:
PC-5300 (667Mhz) ram with 4-4-4-12 timing or PC-6400 ram (800Mhz) with 5-5-5-18 timing?

What is the maximum speed of memory that the e1505 can use? If it's 667 Mhz, I'm of course going to go for the ram with faster timing, but if it's 800 Mhz then I'll go for the speed. I'm using a 2.0 GHz core 2 if it matters, and all I could find it bios is that it's a mm061 "system

Dell :: Inspiron E1505 XP Reinstallation Issue

Apr 3, 2009

So I'm planing on reformatting my E1505, but I'm faced with a daunting problem. My laptop screen is broken.

This is the first time I'm reformatting on my own and I'm worried that the broken screen would cause a problem. The monitor I have hooked up only starts showing things from my laptop after the boot up process gets to the blueish screen that says Windows is starting up.

If I were to go into the installation menu, is there a way for me to get it to appear on my external monitor instead of the broken laptop monitor?

Dell :: Inspiron 6400 / E1505 Need Hinge

Mar 25, 2010

In the forefront we can see the hinge, and in the background we can see the piece behind the hinge (PBTH) - I have no idea what to call it, so from now on it will refer to it as the PBTH. =)

Ok, the problem I've had - for years - is that the PBTH does not stay where it is supposed to stay.. the three plugs do not stay in their holes. This has caused the outer plastic part of the LCD cover to split when I close the lid.

After a few years of this, the bezel cracked on me... so I decide to get a new bezel, and I tried to fix the hinge problem.

I'm not sure what mechanism was used to keep those 3 prongs in their holes, but I was going to try contact cement (for a lack of better ideas) - if you have any other ideas, please let me know.

But now my problem is this:

Last night I glued the PBTH into place, put everything back together..tried close the lid - was met with major resistance - and the glue/PBTH bond broke.

I'm currently using a Dell inspiron 6400/E1505 notebook although i wish to upgrade to a studio 15 or 17 i cannot afford it at the moment i can however afford to upgrade the notebook i have a little bit more, the 2 upgrades i'm considering are,

Dell :: Loud Cd Drive (w/ Inspiron E1505)

Jan 10, 2009

I have an Inspiron E1505 with a Sony DVD+-RW DW-Q58A cd/dvd drive. I THINK I have a firmware/driver issue with it because of a weird problem I've been having lately.

I noticed a couple times when running the DVD-ROM of a new game, the disc spun up really, REALLY loudly. And, the disc won't autoplay (I don't know if that's related to the cd drive or not...autoplay hasn't been working for a while, now). For the most part though, the disc spins-up normally and the game runs just fine. The problem comes up everytime I quit the game -- the screen goes black as if going back to the desktop but seems to freeze .....

Dell :: Inspiron 6400 / E1505 CPU Upgrade?

Oct 21, 2009

I DID search but found conflicting information.

I have a Dell here that I just picked up free due to having a busted screen and a bad battery. Luckily I have a HUGE pile of dead laptops and had these parts!

The laptop says Inspiron 6400 on it but the service tag shows up as a E1505 on Dell's site. The service tag is 4Q38YB1 if that helps.

I put two 1gb DDR2-800 sticks in (though it comes up as 533MHz) and a 120gb SATA drive in.

Dell :: Inspiron 6400 / E1505 Screen Brightness

Mar 29, 2010

I've had my trusty Dell Inspiron 6400 since 2006 and it's still going strong, but over the last couple of months

I've noticed that the screen doesn't appear to be as bright as it used to be. It's as if the brightness isn't set to full, but when you try to increase it you discover it is at full brightness.

Can LCD screens become dimmer over time and would a replacement screen fix this?
