Dell :: Have I Damaged My Card

Aug 27, 2007

I have a Dell Inspiron 9400 with a rev0 7900gs Go, and I recently flashed it with the 7900GTX bios (790GTXUN.ROM) and followed the info given on post 1 here: [url]

The clocks for this BIOS were set at 500/600 by default, but I went ahead and clocked them up to 530/630, then eventually up to 575/700. I am running ATi Tool 0.27b2 and ran the artifact test, it ran for about 10 minutes and then some artifacts started to show at about 93c. As soon as they started coming up, I canceled the artifact test then rebooted, and re flashed back to the original 7900GS BIOS. I have been playing WoW for the last 30mins and it has been running fine but I am worried that I may have damaged my card, would anyone please be able to tell me what you think or what could have caused the artifacting?

Dell :: Windows 7 Damaged My Inspiron 1520?

Sep 18, 2009

I recently did a clean install of Windows 7 RC over Vista on my inspiron 1520. Windows 7 appeared to automatically install the correct drivers for everything

except the graphics card, as everything else appeared to be working properly (e.g. wireless, scrollpad, etc.) After manually downloading and installing the NVidia driver, the aero stuff started to work.

However shortly afterwards, I noticed that the left side of my screen seemed slightly dimmer than the rest of the screen. The problem gets even worse, as the backlight would suddenly turn off after shorter and shorter periods.

I thought maybe the windows 7 drivers were incompatible with my the laptop, so I uninstalled windows 7 and installed Vista back along with the original drivers, but that didn't fix the problem .....

Dell :: D600 Hard Drive Damaged

Sep 14, 2009

I have a Dell Latitude D600 that came with a 60gb hard drive. I had a D600 previous to this one with a 40gb hard drive and I swapped this hard drive into the newer D600 since I had all my important data stored on it already.

Just the other day when I was performing some maintenance on the D600,

I accidentally dropped the 40gb on the floor when it was out of the computer. I thought everything was fine because it seemed to boot up when

I re-installed it, but I hadn't actually tried using it until today

Dell :: Received My Studio XPS 16, But Now It's $150 Cheaper!

Mar 4, 2009

So I ordered my XPS1640 about 2-3 weeks ago. Arrived at my house on Monday. Later that day I go onto Dell's website, and see my exact same laptop on sale for $150 less than what I paid.

The only difference is lack of McAfee and a smaller HDD. So I customized it the same as mine, with McAfee and the larger HDD and I still would've saved $60-70.

Do I have a legitimate beef here? Should I call and complain, and will they do anything for me anyways?

Dell :: Received Refurb E6500some

May 7, 2009

I just received my E6500 from the outlet after having returned a new studio 17.

1. Was I supposed to receive any sort of owners manual with this thing?
There are a handful of disks but no manual save for a small warranty booklet.

2. It has XP on it and I think it came with the ability to put vista business on it. I am not particularly wedded to xp, should I just go ahead and put vista on? Is vista closer interface wise to whatever the next generation of windows is (windows 7)?

3. This E6500 has the 1440x900 led screen as did my studio 17. The screen on the 17 was absolutely brilliant but the screen on this E6500 seems more fuzzy or dull. Not as sharp and vibrant as the screen on the 17. To be perfectly honest, the screen on this E6500 doesn't seem that much nicer than the one on my 2001 Latitude.

4. Refresh my memory on how I increase the pixels to get bigger text.

5. When I hit the function key and the "auto" screen brightness key the screen goes very dark. Is this supposed to be the ambient light/brightness deal?

Dell :: Just Received Studio 1558

May 21, 2010

Core i5 430

4GB Ram
Integrated Intel graphics
Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit
Black chainlink finish
DVD burner

1080p monitor is a must unless you need large text. The 1080p screen is perfectly fine for all use. I thought it might be too hard to read, but actually find it to be perfect given how crisp the image is.

Build quality is good, not as good as the XPS but still decent. At work I use a Lenovo T500 that has a magnesium skeleton under the lid and it very solidly built .....

Dell :: Inspiron 11z - Received This Morning

Aug 21, 2009

This was the stock $399 configuration advertised on Dell's site.

Just charging and setting it up now so let me know of any questions and I'll try to answer.

Couple of things right off the bat. It looks just like an oversized mini 10 (we never got any of the 12's)

The ac adapter is the same unit they provide with the bigger dells like the studio 14 and 15, not the nice compact unit that comes with the mini 10

Aug 8, 2009

It was expected to ship on thr 10th and I actually received it today. Dell is the best. But anyways, here are just a few questions to you current owners:

1.) How can I adjust my RGB settings to perfection and what settings would you recommend (Please don't post a thread of a 10 pages that I will have to read through).

2.) I purchased the 9 cell. Do I want to fully charge it, then let it die all the way down so the sensor is correct or what would you recommend?...........................

Sony :: Damaged Screen

Feb 6, 2009

Today at the end of school I took my notebook (Sony Vaio SR) out of my bag (special notebook bag) and got it out of stand by. I noticed that there were vertical lines on exactly the left half of the screen.

The lines are separated exactly equal and the color changes when images are moved. They are not of a certain color, perhaps a bit brown .....

HP/Compaq :: HP Damaged My Laptop And Won't Fix It

Apr 4, 2009

I sent my 8510p laptop in to HP to fix a video problem and they replaced the video board, sent it back to me. When I got it back it was very clear that there was still a problem, the video signal intermittently clouded up like there was a disconnect in the cable - I figured the tech didn't press the connector cable firmly into place. I sent it back for the 2nd time.

I got the laptop back and all my video problems were fixed; however, there was now a 2 to 3 inch long crack around one of the screws on the bottom of the case - like someone took a chisel or a screwdriver to pry up at the case. I told customer service and they sent a box for me to pack it up and send it back. This is the 3rd week in a row without my computer at home - it's starting to cause major problems because I need my computer to study.

I get a call back this last Friday from billing at HP telling me they aren't going to fix the case unless I pay them $200 even though it's very clear that the crack was caused by an incompetent tech trying to get into the unit. There was no damage to the shipping box and this kind of crack simply could not have happened during shipping - HP also tells me that because I got it late Thursday and didn't report it til Sunday morning, that I can't be covered for shipping damage (even though there was no shipping damage). They want $89 to send it back to me unfixed too.

I told them I wouldn't pay them anything for damage they caused - I left a message on the voicemail of the billing department supervisor...............

Dell :: Ordered The RGBLED Display And Received The WLED One Instead?

Mar 3, 2010

Has anybody ordered the RGBLED display and received the WLED one instead? I ordered the RBGLED (as shown on my receipt and Dell confirmation email) but my shipping confirmation says WLED. I am on the phone with them now, but they are only seeing WLED now (since that's what it's now showing for them). If you had this issue, how did you get it resolved?

Dell :: Received Repaired System Down Graded My Graphics Card

Feb 12, 2010

I own an Dell Inspiron 1520 laptop. I bought it in August 2008, and my warranty covers me until 2011.

My graphics card was overheating and artifacting (8600m). I sent it back to dell last friday and received it back today, the paperwork showed that they had replaced the graphics card and also the motherboard. i booted up the system only to find that they have replaced the graphics card with the 8400m GS, I've just sent them an email explaining the fact that im not happy etc, and am waiting for a response.

I understand that they not have any replacement 8600m cards, and i also read on these forums that american customers have experienced similar problems. The system cost me over 1000 and to say im angry is an understatement, i will give them a ring tommorrow.

Dell :: Just Received SXPS 16Works Fine But Not Impressed With The RGBLED

Dec 8, 2009

I just got in the Dell SXPS 1645 with RGBLED. The only reason I bought this thing was because I heard that the screen was so amazing and the best there was. Well, I'm looking at it right now and it doesn't seem so great to me. I mean it's ok, but my jaw didn't drop...at all. In fact, it was a big letdown.

My first reaction was, is this thing a matte screen? Because it doesn't seem as "glossy" as my old Vaio AR-590E. It seems a little grainy to me. But now that I think of it, Dell never advertised it as being glossy, I just assumed it would be.

Dell :: Has Anyone Received An RGBLED NON-Covet M6400- Is It Matte Finish

Dec 8, 2008

Dell is finally starting to help me out as far as the screen glossiness and some other issues I've been having.

Before I tell them what parts I need in a replacement, I need to know if the M6400 RGBLED screen (not the Covet) is matte finish?

I'd really appreciate it - I can't trust their sales staff to actually know. My gut instinct would be that the E2E RGBLED screen is glossy, while the other is matte... but I don't want to replace my glossy with another glossy!

Dell Inspiron N4030 :: Just Gives Code PXE-E53 - No Boot Filename Received

Feb 10, 2013

PXE-E53: No boot filename received.The client received at least one valid DHCP/BOOTP offer, but does not have a boot filename to download. There are several possible causes:

• The 060 DHCP option is not set during installation, on Windows Server 2008 with the DHCP service, is installed locally. To resolve this issue, modify the following PXE configuration option if DHCP service is required to be installed locally: Open the PXE Configuration Utility, select the PXE Server tab, and for DHCP Server discovery select the No DHCP server installed on PXE server (Use DHCP port) option.

• The DHCP Server and the PXE Server were located on the same server, but one of them was moved to a different server. This would result in an incorrect PXE Server configuration. To resolve this issue, reinstall the PXE Server component of the Altiris Deployment Solution.

• The DHCP relay agent, either a Proxy DHCP Server or a switch configured with helper addresses, is not configured correctly. For example, if DHCP and PXE are on separate servers, the DHCP relay agent needs to have both addresses in its configuration. To resolve this issue, correct the DHCP relay agent configuration.

• If the Microsoft DHCP service is installed on the PXE server, but is disabled or unconfigured, Altiris PXE Setup configures PXE to work with the local DHCP service (even if the DHCP service is disabled). This causes the PXE server to not respond to PXE clients that get a DHCP address from DHCP services running elsewhere on the network. To resolve this issue, remove Microsoft DHCP services from the PXE server and reinstall the PXE Server component of the Altiris Deployment Solution.

• A firewall or network security software is enabled in the network environment.
