Dell :: Just Received Studio1557

Feb 15, 2010

Finally i have received my Studio1557 this morning. it came along with pre installed windows7 home premium 64bit. but i had Windows Vista Ultimate 64bit and as i like windows Vista more than Windows7, so i have just installed it.

now i m updating service packs. i will install Windows7 as well. anyway, i want to share with u something that, once windows is booting, after the dell logo it takes 30seconds to show up the log in screen. it's unusual.

Dell :: Vista Booting Up Delayed In Studio1557

Feb 16, 2010

My machine came along with windows7 home premium which i don't like. so once i received it i installed my vista ultimate 64bit (no SP). then i updated it to sp2. but the annoying thing what i noticed is booting time.

Once the Dell logo disappears i can see couple of blinking on the top left corner then screen goes off and should pop up booting, but it goes off and stays like that for 30secs then starts booting process. it's annoying. i tried many way to sort it out. in BIOS Quickbooting option is enable.

Dell :: Optical Driver Problem In My 2days Old Studio1557

Feb 17, 2010

ever since i received this machine Studio1557(WINDOWS7 Home Premium; Core i7 1.6gHz, 512 ATI, 320GB HDD, 4 GB Ram) i m getting different sort of problem. i received it couple of days ago. as soon as i received it, i did install my own operating system which was Windows Vista Ultimate 64bit and made 2other partition to install Windows7 ultimate as well. anyways, as i have installed vista ultimate without any service pack, then i spent 4/5hrs to get to SP2 with all the update, but i have found that machine takes much time to load the boot screen. i don't know why that hell was happening. after the dell logo it used to take 30seconds to pop up booting screen. however, then i lost my curiosity for vista. so again i did format the whole HDD and installed WINDOWS 7 ULTIMATE 64bit. today i left my machine on and once came back found that OPTICAL DRIVE doesn't work. once the CD/DVD being inserted, it tries to spin but get stuckked. tomorrow morning i have to call DELL.

i had another issue with this Optical Drive. i have got magic iso to burn the iso image, but magic iso can't recognise any disk inserted after being inserted CD/DVD. this is strange, where my room mate's machine has got magic iso and windows 7 64bit and he can burn any iso file without any problem. so i don't know what's wrong going on with my machine. can some1 explain me plz? was the optical drive faulty itself??? if yes then how come my nero and power iso works with it...

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

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!

Can anyone who recently purchased an XPS 13/16 confirm whether or not they received the fast access cd and microfiber sleeve? I bought an XPS 16 and was told bya tech that fast access is not available as a disc and that the sleeves are no longer being shipped with the systems.

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.

Dell :: Received M1730 Peculiar Video Stutter When Not Using SLI. Forceware Driver Reccomendation?

Oct 27, 2009

I notice that when I have SLI turned off, there is a stutter effect when maximizing and minimizing windows - this was occurring both in the Vista pre-installed as well as the Windows 7 x64 currently installed. When running SLI, no such issues occur.

As I want to disable SLI to avoid the excessive fan noise and save on battery life (I don't ever play videogames, and this was sent as a replacement), I want to figure out why this is happening.

1. What could be the cause of this? I can't imagine that a single 8700m GT isn't capable of smoothly rendering window max and minimization.

2. Would a forceware driver be better than the stock Dell drivers? If so, can someone recommend the latest, well-liked and stable forceware driver for Windows 7 x64? I know that some are better than others but navigating laptopvideo2go.com is a bit confusing for me.

Dell :: Received 1640 Review & Pros/Cons On Common Concerns & Questions

Jul 28, 2009

I received my 1640 yesterday. Big props to Dell, since I bought it on Friday around 3pm (outlet "previously ordered new") and Fed-Ex attempted to deliver it on Monday at 10am (picked it up at the distribution center at night).

I also received my 9-cell battery, but haven't had a chance to use it or review it, so this will focus on the 6-cell.

First - Boxing: Non-fancy tan cardboard box. The laptop was encased in foam and a foamy-sleeve.

No bags were included with this laptop. I got a slim AC adapter (probably about 1/3rd weight of the previous bricks), some cds, and the laptop. Nothing else. Should I have gotten a sleeve of some sort .....

HP/Compaq :: Sent In My HDX To Get Glass Replaced, Received A Re-imaged Hard Drive

Mar 19, 2009

I sent my laptop in due to dust being behind the Infinity Glass and some scratches incurred by the speaker grilles on the HDX16.

I received my laptop back last night. The glass was replaced (woohoo!) however the hard drive was re-imaged as well (not so woohoo!).

I admit I did not back up my data. Here's why - 1.) I was never told that data backup was necessary. I have my original chat transcript showing that I was never informed of a possible system restore. I have a chat transcript from last night confirming, from HP, that I was never informed. 2.) The glass was being replaced. Nothing internally needed to be touched.

I attribute this to going to a shop to get your car's windsheild replaced only to find out they also rebuilt your engine. It makes zero sense.

I've contacted HP to see what they can do about this and they stand behind their warranty information which states they are not responsible for lost data. I can understand that. However, they are responsible for their staff and their ability to properly inform customers what may happen when a laptop is sent in for service.

Heck, I don't even know WHAT's reasonable at this point. I could go all out and get my laywer involved but it seems like a waste of time.

HP G7-2217cl Recovery :: Windows 8.1 Installed Now Received Fatal Device Hardware Error

Nov 10, 2014

Windows 8.1 kept popping up to install update.  I would refuse it.  Then recently it updated itself.  After that, i noticed it took a little longer for my laptop to boot.  It would show a blue screen for a little bit then it would boot.  Yesterday, I received an error (can't remember what it said) needed to restart because of an error.  I ran the Hard Disk Test and Quick and then the extensive test.  it stops at one sec remaining and noting happens.  I did get a fatal device hardware error.  Can the update to Windows 8.1 cause this to happen?

Dell :: Dell.ca Fewer Screen Choices Vs Dell.com

glossy widescreen 15.4 WLED display (1440x900) as a choice, which is what I want, but dell.ca doesn't. When I view the system specs though, that choice is listed as on option.

Dell Vostro 3460 :: Not Boot Only Loads The Dell Logo And Then Shows A Black Page

Feb 9, 2013

my laptop vostro 3460 won't boot any more. When I turn it on it loads the Dell logo (I suppose it passes the POST) but then it just shows a black page. It could be anything, but I guess that it may have something to do with Windows 8 and the UEFI system. I also would be quite happy to install linux mint and get rid of Windows, but I don't know how to change the boot priority order.

So my questions are:

1 is it a hardware issue ? if not, can I solve my problem easily ?

2 how can I change the boot priority order, to install mint ?
