Dell :: XPS1530 With WSXGA+ (1680x1050) Screen

Apr 27, 2009

I'm just awaiting delivery of my new XPS1530 with WSXGA+ (1680x1050) screen.

Looking through the archives Ive seen a lot of posts relating to problems with the Samsumng version of the screen and that the LG screen is superior.

However, a lot of the posts are at least 11 months old, so I was wondering what the state of play is now. Can I expect an LG screen or has the Sumsung screen been upgraded

Dell :: My XPS1530 Expirences

Apr 18, 2009

I have been on this forum for quite awhile, I don't have many posts but I am always reading everything on here. OK, so on to what I posted this thread for, Just figured I would give a little intro, So it doesn't seem like im completely blind on whats going on in the laptop world.


I have had a XPS 1530 for almost a year now. At first I loved the laptop. Then I started having a problem, The fan was going out, Made a horrible clicking noise. No big deal though, After dealing with CS that you cant understand and runs you in circles trying to fix it, Got it replaced and all was fine again.

A couple months later, I was working out in the garage, and had the laptop out there looking up some exploded views for a car part I was working on. A cup of water I had on top of the bench got knocked over..I went to catch the cup, and ended up knocking the laptop off the bench and the the cup proceeded to land on it, full of water. So, The laptop was fried. Again dealing with the same CS that sucked. I was able to send the laptop in, And got it back about a week later. So that was good.

I would have thought they would have just replaced the laptop, and not tried to fix it.

Anyways, I was looking over the laptop after I got it back and wasn't pleased. The plastics on the bottom were all warped and the media button plastic piece wouldn't stay in place. And it looked like water was still behind the screen. So I turn the laptop on, And it didn't last 30 minutes before the screen went out. To me this is unacceptable.

Even if I caused the problem in the first place, Thats why I paid for the accidental warranty. I would think I could get my laptop back fixed, OR a new one. Had to jump through a bunch of hoops for the CS again,..Sent the laptop back.

I got a refurbished one back about a week later, First thing I notice is all the stickers(service tag, etc. from my original comp) were taped to the back with scotch tape.. And all falling off and ripped. Open the laptop and the space bar is bent, there are scratches on the plastic by the hinges. The black plastic for the media keys is all warped. Start the laptop up.. Dead pixels all over the screen, Or scratches in the LCD is what is really looks like. The HDD was very noisy! And if you plug headphones in, Its really fuzzy. But either way, I have dealt with this stuff for months now, I had to get a bunch of college work done. But now that that's over. The laptop has only got worse, I'm waiting for the hard drive to stop working, Its making horrible noises. And the hinges don't work well anymore, And the computer is running hot, No matter what bios or drivers I install. I still have my full warranty for about another 2 months.

Dell :: XPS1530 GPU 94C When Gaming

Mar 26, 2009

I have owned my XPS 1530 for about 8 months now. It has been quite some time since i took my original temperatures, but i remember running games like warhammer online, call of duty, etc, at a temperature of 45c idle status , and like GPU 71c under hours of gaming. I think the hottest it got was GPU 79 degrees. 8 months later i decided to try gaming again and to my surprise my laptop is getting SO hot that it burns my hands and my speedfan shows the GPU at like GPU 64 idle ( 69 when the batter adapter is in) and up to 91-95 when on a game. I used to have a zalman laptop cooler which kept my comp a bit cooler, but i only noticed it effecting my temp. by about 2-3 degrees. I am going to undervolt and get my broken zalman replaced but I need to know one thing:

Do I have defective hardware? Is it normal to see an increase in temperatures as laptops get older? I am very afraid that something is damaged. Also, is there a specific driver that i should be running which can help my graphics card cool down, or am i one of the unlucky few who have been given a bugged 8600gt.

After two years of using my XPS1530, I received an error or reminder message that I need to replace my battery.

It's still working though, but not sure what is the side effect of not replacing the battery immediately.

Do I need to replace my battery if it's still holding more than an hour or so?

Approx 30 mins into the game the laptop just shuts down, no BSOD, just powers off. When i reboot it there is no system error saying it was a major crash or any warning telling me why.....

I have installed a heat program to record the heat on teh GPU and the CPU, at the point of crash the GPU is around 85 degrees C.

I have taken the back off the laptop and cleaned the Heatsink fan, it was pretty dusty.

Dell :: Vostro Screen Wobbled/looseunable To Repair, Now Plastic Around Screen Is Loose

Nov 13, 2008

I have a Vostro 1500, which I bought 10 months ago. About 3 months ago the screen became loose and wobbled about 10 degrees when computer was moved or if I was on the train and it went over bumps. I tightened the screws as advised but this did not have any real effect. Dell engineer came and replaced the back cover with new hinges, (as they though hinges may be broken/at fault but they were fine,) but some wobble was still noticable so he ordered a new base. He came today and took the screen out complete with all the screen casing out of the old base, and put it into the new base, but still wobbled, so just put it back in the old base as it wouldn't have cured the problem.

Now yesterday, after he put the new back cover on, he had to take the plastic around the front of the screen off. After he put it together I noticed that the screen is no longer flush with the plastic surround and it annoys me! Am I just being finicky/picky or should I ask them to fix it?

Dell :: Vostro 1500 LCD Screen Replacement. New Screen Acting Weird

Jan 30, 2010

Hi all, new person here. I did a search on LCD screens but can't find my problem anywhere.

Here's the background and problem:

Vostro 1500 with Chungwha 1280x800 screen that got cracked by my kids. I ordered a replacement screen from a company off Amazon.com that was highly rated. Got the screen and installed it. It is make by Chi Mei. When I powered up the computer I got 8 screens of start up and it was very dim. Once it went past the Windows start up screen everything went black. It would only continue to Windows screen, still showing 8 windows in safe mode. I hooked up the old screen and everything worked fine.

I contacted the company and they air expressed me another screen, which I received yesterday. Hooked it up and got the exact same problem, which leads me to believe it's the Dell that doesn't like it. I will try and attach some photos because I am at a loss.

Thanks for your help in advance.

Dell :: Laptop Screen Not Plugged In Properlyred Lines / Screen Distorted

Jan 24, 2009

1. open it myself and replug it (im a noob and will try remember best what he did)

2. get techinician to come in again (bothersome as i have school)

3. ask dell for a replacement laptop.

Dell :: I9300 Gfx Card Dead - Gives A Black Screen After The Xp Spalsh Screen

Feb 25, 2009

I was browsing the internet a day ago and I was on a "COLLEGE" website so i know this is not due to a virus. At this time all of a suden my screen went black.

I powered the laptop off and turned it back on, The Dell logo appeared but the screen was fuzzy and had some "tearing" i dont really know what to call it but it doesnt look right. Kind of like an old VCR playing videos. The screen then whent black after the windows xp splash screen. The laptop still boots to windows but it does not display anything.

I booted into safe mode, everything functions correctly and the way it's supposed to. I then booted into VGA mode same thing everything functions and works the way it is supposed to. I also ran some virus scans just incase, nothing was found.

Whilist in safe mode i changed the resolution down to 800 x 600 and still no luck after booting in regular mode.

In VGA mode i tryed to change resolution and the screen displayed some blue fuzzy lines then whent black.

After this I booted back into safe mode and done severeral diffrent System Restores at diffrent dates. Still no luck

After going through all this I am assuming this is a GFX card problem. The laptop is about 3 years old and ive played games pretty hard on it ever since. The card has defenitly gone through some some stress. Can anyone confirm this?

I know that the i9300 sells for about 400 working, and i checked on ebay for a card that is a whopping 180 bucks. Id just assume buy a new laptop. Then sell the i9300 laptop for parts because everything else works fine. Or maybe buy the card swich it out and sell it for a price. Maybe there is a way to fix it i dont know. can anyone help?

Lastly, i thought i would add that when i check the bios the card is recognized and it displays all the correct info for the card. IS there a way to tell for 100% that the card is bad?

Dell :: Ghosting Screen Or Lower Resulotion Screen

Sep 5, 2009

If you had the choice to choose either a Screen that has yellow ghosting, or a screen that has a lower resolution - which one would u go for?

Well I ordered a dell notebook with a 720p screen I believe that would be somewhere around 1330 x 780 - however I got a notebook with a 1600x900 screen.

The screen however has quite some yellow ghosting, which I can see for example when my charackter heals herself in oblivion. Or during fast youtube videos - especially changes between black and white, the white will have a yellow ghost following it..

Anyways, I believe if I want to get it replaced they will but the 720p screen inside.

So what are your recommendations? the ghosting is quite annoying..

would I notice a huge difference between the old and the new resolution?

Dell :: Studio XPS 16 Screen Vs. Desktop Screen

Oct 13, 2009

Long ago (A year ago lol) I bought the Gateway FX gaming notebook. It was a great PC and could not beat the price with the hardware and performance it offered, however the screen was really bad.

At first glance it wasnít, 1080p res and good brightness level, but when I plugged in my old external LCD monitor to dual screen, I was floored. My 4 year old desktop LCD screen was almost better in every single way.

The Gatewayís colors were dull, muddy, and dark, no matter how much I recalibrated the screen, I could not get it to look anywhere as good when compared to my Samsung screen on my desk.

Sony :: Is The 1920x1080 Screen On The Style Uk Site A X-black Screen With Multiple Lamp

Feb 13, 2009

is the sony FW35V(customizable) on the sony style uk site a 1920x1080 a dual lamp LCD?
it says 16.4" H1080 WXGA++ (1920 x 1080) Widescreen X-black LCD screen with built-in "Motion Eye" Digital Camera, but is it a 1920x1080 dual lamp, multiple lamp(how many?) orr single lamp? make sure its the fw35v not the fw35x. the fw35v is the one that costs £60 to upgrade the screen. the fw35x says HD1080 (1920x1080) X-black LCD with multiple lamp, which im guessing is a dual lamp LCD right? also is the Dual lamp worth it for £60?
what does it do? give brighter?, sharper?, more deep and rich colours? or something else?
