Dell :: Light Weight Laptop Replacement For An Old Inspiron 1300

Dec 8, 2008

I'm seeking feedback on a lightweight replacement for an Inspiron 1300 I once had. Something if I needed to use I could use while propped up in bed, nothing heavier than my old Inspiron 1300 which I don't know exactly how heavy it was but I need to replace it with another laptop, possible one lighter than my Inspiron 1300 which I would be using most of the time for web surfing and email. I know the lighter the laptops are the more expensive they are.

Dell Inspiron 1545 :: Laptop Would Not Power Up - No Light?

Jan 16, 2015

This is a late 2008 build Dell Inspiron 1545, sold retail in December 2010.

Pentium dual core T4500, 2.3 GHz

Has been in irregular use as a spare machine, mains adapter only, battery  removed.  My house was struck by lightning over a year ago and adapter damaged.  Replaced adapter and no further issue until now.

Laptop would not power up, no light.  Tested adapter and tried another 2 adapters - still no power up.  Replaced original adapter and plugged in depleted battery - powered up but had to press F1.  Powered up with no issue with good battery.  Once powered up the laptop seems to be charging battery OK.  Guessed this was a power board issue but no change when replacement fitted.

Dell Inspiron 17 5748 :: Won't Turn On - No Light On Laptop

Nov 22, 2014

I've had my laptop for about a three weeks now. Last night, I shut the lid to put it to sleep and went out for a few hours, leaving the lap top plugged in.

When I came home, the laptop wouldn't turn on. I looked online, found to take out the battery, hold the power button down for 30 sec, put the battery back in, then plug it in again, nothing worked.

I left the battery out over night, then did the same thing -- no go. 

The computer has been plugged in for about an hour now, still nothing.

There are no lights on the laptop itself, the green light is on the AC adapter and I also plugged in the adapter into another computer and it worked with that.

Running on Windows 7, Inspiron 17 5748 -- still under warranty.

Dell Inspiron 1300 :: Will Not Power Up Properly - No Fan Noise

Apr 1, 2013

Dell Inspiron 1300, turn the power on, the three led's at the top of the keyboard flash, the power light illumintes then after about 3 or 4 seconds turn off, there is no fan noise or any other noise I can hear.

I have removed the memory, the wireless card, the hard drive and the cd rom, still same symptoms.

Also removed battery and still same symptoms.

Checked battery and power cord on another 1300 works fine.

Right now I am leading toward either a bad invertor or bad motherboard.

I am not sure if the invertor supplys any signal back to mother board to say it is powered up or not. As a test I did unplug the cable from monitor to mother board and tried to turn on unit that way, but still same symptoms.

Dell :: 1555 Replacement Laptop

Sep 20, 2009

I just chatted with tech support regarding a flicker issue with my dell 1555. He said that he will replace the laptop, though i was asking for an LCD replacement.

Anyways to make it short, the biggest problem is that i am relocating and moving to another city in USA next saturday morning. So i was asking if it can be done later, for which he said dont worry it takes 3-5 days for the replacement to arrive so you are safe.

I am just wondering, how does replacement of system work ?
1. Do they send a box will all the software too again !!! I mean vista disk etc ? or do they just send the system.
2. How will they have by custom configuration at hand ? wouldnt it have to go to china again and yes that will make it further delayed ..

Dell :: Viable For Replacement Laptop?

Jul 15, 2009

so I have my Dell Studio 1535 laptop since September.. Since then, it has had 3 motherboards for the sound breaking, 3 touch pads for the eject button issue which still occurs, and 3 laptop lids for broken hinges due to the cheap silver plastic used on these covers..

Anyway, on my 5 Dell service call now, and they tell me they will not replace the lid with any different cover, full stop. They will not fix the laptop with any alternative parts, so I'm stuck with silver plastic lids as long as I have this, even though two of the times I was told they were quality tested and garuntee'd not to break, which they have..

So what do I do? The manager extended the warranty for me but ONLY for the hinges issue.. Nevermind the eject button or sound .....

Dell :: After CPU Replacement Laptop Won't Boot

Oct 24, 2008

I just tried to upgrade my current processor in a Dell Inspiron 1520 from an Intel C2D T5250 to an Intel C2D T8300.After replacing the old CPU with the new I put my laptop back together and then press the power button. The three lights by the power button light up and the caps lock button in the middle of the three lights starts to flash then after a minute or two the computer shuts off. I thought it may have been that the CPU was DOA so I popped the old one back in there and got the same thing. I have the most up to date BOIS from Dell A09 as well

Dell :: XPS Studio 13 Weight

Nov 16, 2009

According to the specifications, the XPS Studio 13 is just under 5 pounds. I'm trying to get a feel for how heavy that is compared to the XPS m1330, which I have used with a regular non-LED display.

For those who have used both computers, does the XPS Studio 13 seem much heavier and more burdensome for carrying around than the m1330? I love the 1330 and am saddened that its successor model is not as light

Dell :: Vostro 3700 Weight And Proc

Apr 11, 2010

I know there are a couple of 3x00 Vostro threads, but some are very long and the other did not seem to have an answer for this question.

First, I am very interested in this new Vostro. It seems a good configuration and design for the price. I especially love the 17" screen at < 6 lbs. Seems too good to be true.

Does anyone have experience with this machine? Is the weight including the battery and everything? It is a pound lighter than the 16" Sony F I am using. I like the F, but this Vostro seems a little more in line for me (PhD, heavy stats and datasets). My wife woul appropriate the Sony if I were to pull the trigger on the Dell.

Also, the i5-520m to i7-???qm (dual to quad, differing clocks and all). I am thinking the i5 may be the way to go. Most of my stuff is not designed for 4-cores, 8 threads, etc.

HP/Compaq :: Laptop's Screen Has No Image, But Light Is On

Mar 9, 2009

I broke the hinge of the laptop's lcd. I replace the hinge, there was a cable that was broken, I realize that cable was not related to the lcd since it was connect to the wireless network chip.

I made sure all the lcd cable are plug in the laptop motherboard.

On the back of the lcd, there was white tape and it said do not touch, I accidentally touch this by mistake. I don't know if this is really serious.

Now, the laptop does not have any picture, but the light is on, the lcd has a grayish color, its like its about to load, but no image comes up.

This issue occurred during the hinge breaking.

I hope I didn't break the lcd.

Model is dv2037us.

The laptop is fine if I hook it up to a monitor via vga port.

Dell :: Power Cord Light Turns Off When Plugged Into Laptop Short Circuit?

May 29, 2010

So last night my laptop was running fine on battery power, but then it was running low, so I plugged in the power cord. Nothing happened. Since the adapter at the laptop end was falling apart and duct-taped anyways, I figured it was just conking out, but then I saw the indicator light on the power brick was off.

With some experimentation, I found that if I moved it to a different outlet, the light would come back on, but if I plugged it into my laptop, the light would die, and I would have to again move it to a different outlet (the same one as first would work fine) to get the indicator light back on. It works in other Dell laptops. Other adapters do the exact same thing.

So I'm guessing there's a problem with my laptop wiring that's causing a short or something. (Apologies for my shallow electrical knowledge.) But it was working last night on battery power. Until the battery died completely this morning, it would power up. So it's not an electrical problem that kills the laptop.
