Dell :: Chat Support - Anyone Know What Time It Opens?

Feb 17, 2009

Dell doesn't have the hours posted anywhere in their support section. I just get a message saying "All chat reps are busy with other customers OR the queue is closed."

I don't like dealing with their reps on the phone because they're reading from a script and it's VERY annoying.....

Dell :: Should I Contact Tech Support?

Jul 23, 2009

I'm looking at my new SXPS 16 and on the right side of the glossy lid it looks like they didn't finish glossing it or it jammed up.

Also when I run my hand over it it feels rough compared to the glossy rest of the lid. Also you can only see it at angles not looking straight down

Dell :: Tech Support Experience

Mar 19, 2009

This is a long story of various experiences ive had with dell tech support and dell technicians.

It all started when i was 3 years old, my mommy was out for dinner and i.... oh wait... wrong story lol.

okay so when i bought this xps m1530 i knew about all the GPU issues and i was OK with that,

becasue the m1530 is an amazing machine, but some months ago it started giving me green screens and high temperatures, so i figured i should talk to dell about it, and this is what happened .....

HP/Compaq :: HP Tech Support

May 14, 2009

I have been VERY happy with the tech support that I have received form HP. I had some problems with the speaker on my DV7t-2000, and the HP tech support has been very helpful. They originally told me (after a phone conversation/attempted fix) that they would be sending me a box to send the computer in for a fix. I just got off the phone with them, and they told me that they will be sending a new version with updated specifications, mainly a 2.26ghz quad core processor (up from a 2.4ghz dual core), and 500gb worth of hard drive space (up from 320gb). They will also be giving me a fingerprint scanner and a more powerful wireless card.

All in all, I have to say that they have been FANTASTIC. I have heard horror stories about HP, but they seem to be just fine.

Dell :: Chat IP Filter

Jan 11, 2009

After a very unsettling chat with a customer representative, most likely from India, who clearly knew nothing about any of the questions I directed at him (for example, s/he was clueless on what Centrino was), I decided to maybe try another rep. However I was astonished to find that suddenly all their customer support agents were busy (even though the wait time was 0 minutes before).

I suspected foul play, reconnected my DSL to obtain a new IP, and suddenly wait time was 0 again. Coincidence... I think not. If you want to implement some form of spam abuse tactic, then clearly explain this and not give some -and-bull story that your agents are "busy". Absolutely despicable.

Dell :: Chat -- Upsell

Mar 26, 2009

I just had a chat with Dell Techsupport about one of the butons getting stuck on my touchpad. No biggie, they will replace the palmrest, but then at the end the guy is trying to sell me a cooling pad. I told him that the laptop isn't that hot and the fan rarely comes on. So he's trying to tell if the fan ever comes on, I need a cooling pad and he'd be happy to order one for me. I politely declined.

Has anyone experience the Indian tech support acting like sales people?

Theres been reports that it works perfectly fine in Parrallels.

Apple :: Mac OSX And ISight With Windows Live Messenger

Apr 23, 2010

I've just started dealing with Mac OSX for the very first time, and I have some great problems getting the integrated iSight camera on my MacBook Pro 17" to work with the Microsoft Live Messenger protocol.

All I know uses Live Messenger 9.0, and I want to be able to chat AND having webcam sessions within Mac OSX.

Is this even possible? I've tried the new Microsoft Live Messenger 8.0 BETA for Mac OSX, which was supposed to be the very first official Microsoft client for OSX supporting webcam? But for me it doesn't work at all, no webcam..

My contacts doesn't even seem to get all my messages either, so it's obviously something very fishy going on with this client.

I also tried mercury, but couldn't get the cam-thing to work, not with the stable 1.9 or RC6 og 2.0, no matter what protocol I tried to use.

Dell :: Length Of Time For A Tech Visit?

Jan 15, 2009

I am scheduling an appointment to get the motherboard and trackpad of my XPS M1530 replaced.

I am having them do it at my work and my boss says its ok as long as they don't take to long. Who has had them do this before and how long did it take? I have heard times as low as 20 mins or as high as two hours.

I really hoping that it will only take like a half hour since I feel awkward doing this at work but i need it done.

HP/Compaq :: HP's Tech

Apr 1, 2010

I've bought through ebay an envy 15 (1st gen), and the overheating issues began from first day. It shuts down frecuently, when playing most of them. Seller tells me to send it to HP, but I think they will have the PC for a long time, and they will return it in the same conditions. I have the posibility of send the pc back to the seller... What do you think about HP's assistant? Do you really think they could fix the overheating problem?

i've just received my repaired dv2310 back from HP due to a motherboard failure. everything is back to normal now.. boots fine, although GPU temp still a little on the hot side. its at 81C now and the only thing i'm doing is typing this message. CPU temp around 55-60C light load. (Turion 64x2 1.6ghz)

but one major issue.. the HP tech SCRATCHED MY SCREEN! theres several nicks on the upper left portion.. its very obvious when i am looking a blank white page..

HP/Compaq :: Warranty/Tech SupportHP Envy 15 Ebay

Apr 21, 2010

since I live in Canada and all and we only have the crap 1st Generation HP Envy 15's... if I were to buy a 2nd Generation one through Ebay.CA (The canadian site, yes they have them on there)....

Would the warranty or any tech support be void because I did not buy it through a valid seller? Or does the tech support just go by the Serial # on the bottom of the laptop?

Only reason I ask is because the last thing I want to do is buy a $2000 machine, in a country that doesn't have them yet, and find myself having problems 2 months in and not be able to do anything about it.

Anyone know?
Or if there is another way I can get a 2nd Gen HP Envy 15 to myself in Canada, without having to go to the border and all that junk, incase I do have problems and need to send it back ever?

Dell :: Creative Live Cam Avatar Webcam Manager And Creative X-Fi MB Software Suite

Jul 31, 2009

I've just done a fresh install of Windows 7 on my Studio XPS 1640 but as is widely known there is certain software which isn't available in 'Dell Support Downloads' or 'My Dell Downloads'.

I find it incredible that you can pay Dell for software (X-Fi) and they don't provide customers with the install files. I've still got the original HD and the recovery partition is next to useless as it's just a pre-configured Vista install, no individual setup files. Trying to rip the files from the Program Files directory isn't feasible as there are files all over the place which would require manual registration.

The closest I've found to the Webcam software is this:

Creative Labs Webcam Manager Utility A04

But it's a really old version and doesn't work with the camera in the 1640.

I've spoken to tech support and they directed me to an X-Fi software update which is useless unless you have the original software installed. I've asked for the install CDs to be sent to me but I'm not holding much hope. Why the hell doesn't Dell just provide the programs for download in the support section?

Apple :: MacBook Pros Use Nvidia's Power-Saving Optimus Graphics Tech

Feb 19, 2010

Looks like our hunches about what's inside the next MacBook Pros are panning out: AppleInsider hears that Apple's got new MacBook Pros running that can switch between integrated and discrete graphics automagically, which exactly describes Nvidia's Optimus dual graphics tech.

If you remember, the unibody MacBooks from Oct. 2008 were the first to use Nvidia's GeForce 9400M, a combination chipset/integrated GPU that ridiculously outperformed Intel's own integrated graphics, and the Pro models at the time could switch between power-saving integrated and beefier discrete graphics, though it requires a logout.

Nvidia got cockblocked from making chipsets for Intel's latest-gen chips (read: Core i3, Core i5, Core i7), ruling out using Nvidia's better integrated graphics; Nvidia canned their chipset business entirely. So! Nvidia's Optimus tech works with Intel's crappier integrated graphics that are built onto the same die as the newer Core processors, but even more seamlessly than before—the computer automatically switches between Intel's power-sipping integrated and Nvidia's monster discrete graphics, depending on what you're doing. No logouts required.

In the demo we saw on a Windows machine, the automatic part of the tech has some drawbacks—namely, it's entirely dependent on software to tell your computer which graphics card to run. But Apple's obviously worked pretty closely with Nvidia on graphics before, so it seems logical they're doing so here, too. Though I don't expect we'll know until the new MacBooks finally arrive, whenever that happens (hopefully, soon).

Dell :: Does Not Support 64 Bit OS?

Sep 19, 2008

I recently bought an OEM Vista Home Premium 64-bit and installed is yesterday. I chatted to a Dell tech support guy today and he essentially said that I wasted my money on the 64-bit OS as Dell laptops do not support 64-bit Operating systems. He said this was due to the fact that my processor (see above) was a 32bit processor. I however came accross this intel site;[url] whci i believe to be my processor that states it is a 64-bit processor.

Another thing; in the dell tech support application, my total memory is shown as 4GB, whilst my available memory is shown to be 2.6GB. Does this mean that all 4GB is not being recognised/utilised? Or does it simply mean that 1.4GB of RAM is currently being used, with 2.6GB left for when I need it?
