Dell :: Not So Efficient 1330 Internal Bluetooth?

Jan 5, 2009

My girl friend has bought Dell bluetooth headset along with 1330. At first the sound was awful, then I reinstalled the bluetooth driver available from Dell support website.

The sound quality has improved a lot but it works only when I sit in front of the laptop with intermittent lag.

The same headset when I use with my HP nc8430 works perfect without any lag for more than ten meters away behind the wall.

Dell :: Studio Internal 14z Bluetooth

Jan 8, 2010

Is it possible to add internal bluetooth to the 14z after the fact? If so, what is the part needed to do this? While we're at it, what about wireless N?

Backstory - Ordered my laptop early December, took delivery mid December. I'm thrilled with the product except for the fact that it doesn't have bluetooth. I thought I had chosen that option, but upon looking at my invoice it appears I didn't. I went back through the customize engine on Dell's website and interestingly enough, I don't see anywhere you can choose bluetooth. Searched their parts website with no luck. Searched Google with no luck. So I tried to email Dell customer service. 3 weeks later, they finally told me to email/call tech support. So I called tech support yesterday. They told me that the wireless and bluetooth internal options are integrated onto the motherboard and have to be specified at the time of order. The only solution she could give me was to return the laptop and re-order it. The problem I voiced with that was that there isn't any way to specify bluetooth (or wireless N for that matter) on the customize page on Dell's website. Of course, she said she couldn't help with that and I needed to go back to customer service. Obviously, I was pretty irate (no cussing though! I kept my cool, but made it obvious I was upset) and she gave me a line that CS's lines were down and I needed to call them back in an hour.

So before I call CS, I'd like to try to get some more information. If you guys can help, I'd really appreciate it. Otherwise, I'm about ready to tell them to send a call tag send this thing back simply based on how terrible their after the sale service has been.

Dell :: USB? Bluetooth Internal Card On Old Inspiron's (i9300 Etc)

Feb 11, 2010

Does anyone know if the internal Bluetooth card that slots into the underneath compartment on old Dell Inspiron's (like the i9300) uses a USB connection?

What I mean by that is, if I were to chop the plug off the end of the connector cable and replace it with a female usb socket, would I be able to run any USB device off it? I need an extra usb socket for a pretty extreme casemod I'm doing at the moment and it ideally (definitely!) needs to be on the underside of the laptop.

Dell :: Should I Buy XPS 1330?

Apr 2, 2009

I'm having for 2 years already a Dell Latitude D630. It works great
Now my sister want also a Dell laptop, and she wants XPS 1330.

I'm sure about reliability of Latitude series, since D600 and D630.
XPS 1330 has very cool design, price is OK too, but I'm very concern about GPU issue. After reading a lot of topic about replacing mainboard and especially heating problems with NVIDIA GPU GS?8400 should I still consider buying now XPS 1330?

I'm not going to buy with NVIDIA video card but Intel Integrated X3100 because sister doesn't play any game

Is there any serious issue with XPS 1330 and Intel X3100 on board?, heating, crashing etc..? I want to buy her a stable laptop like mine - D630.

Dell :: XPS 1330---overall

Sep 19, 2008

after excessively researching every possible laptop that could fit into my budget and for my needs I finally went with the Dell XPS 1330. Upon receiving my order (after patiently waiting for weeks it seemed)-- I opened the box and realized there was no case or complimentary headphones. Only after researching a bit on the forums did I realize they were no longer included. After setting up the laptop and running some games--- and after almost 2 weeks of ownership I must say I am impressed.

-Laptop has a beautiful bright display
-can play most games i throw at it (for some strange reason Company of Heroes slows down considerably)
-slot loading drive
-relatively quiet (more on this on the cons)
-touch screen controls
-pretty quick start up
-extremely light weight---and aesthetically pleasing---looks like a beauty
-surprising decent battery life---get over 3 hrs with each charge--and can be configured for more with dimmer screen.

-makes some strange noises when just doing ordinary tasks---it almost sounds like a ticking clock.
-keyboard is also loose and makes some bad noises when clicking on certain keys. Overall the keyboard is simply sufficient---but doesnt really meet up with the price paid.

I would say for the money 1215$ with 2 yr warranty is fairly unbeatable. An apple macbook was a consideration for a while---but Dells cant be beaten for the price-

overall I would say as a 1st time dell xps laptop buyer I am fairly happy. Only reason that i would consider returning it is for the crappy keyboard--and clicking noises. But i also feel lucky that my xps didnt ship with any worse problems.

Dell :: 6 Gigs- On The 1330

Dec 6, 2008

I don't know if you guys have seen this, but Dell is now offering up to 6 gigs of 800 Mhz RAM vs. the prior max of 4 gigs of 677 Mhz RAM.

Does that mean that the older 1330s are capable of six gigs or have they made some kind of update?

Dell :: XPS 1330, TV-OUT Function Key

Feb 1, 2009

i want to leave my xps laptop connected to my tv (through the hdmi connection) for long periods of time, and i want to be able to leave the laptop screen off and closed while i do this.. also just for extra information the laptop came with vista installed however i installed XP pro instead.

anyway, when i initially got my laptop i could press the function key and tv-out key and it would output to the tv with the laptop screen still on, pressing it again would still output to the tv and turn the laptop screen off, and a third time would turn off tv-output and have just the laptop screen. i.e. pressing fn and F8

1 time - tv output with laptop screen on
2 times - tv output with laptop screen off
3 times - bring it back to normal with laptop screen on and tv out off.

my problem is that when i press it two times my laptop screen goes off, however no tv signal is sent to the tv anymore..
i tried updating my geforce 8400GS drivers and installing and re-installing the video device but it didnt change anything.

Dell :: Samsung LED 1330

Nov 6, 2008

i currently have two 1330s... one with LED and one with CCFL

The LED is a toshiba LCD2306, the CCFL an AUO Optronics, the CCFL looks MUCH better which seems to me total nonsense since the LED is supposed to be better in all aspects.

I will be contacting customer service. Should i be asking specifically for the samsung LED?

Dell :: XPS 1330 Fan Won't Turn Off

Dec 5, 2008

As the subject states, my fan will not turn off. Everything was running great, then about a week ago, after installing MS updates, my fan will not turn off no matter what I'm doing.

I'm sure it was an update but am not sure how to go about fixing. I know I can just start uninstalling updates till the fan turns off but if there is a better way that would be great.

Dell :: Xps 1330 Battery

Jun 10, 2009

My xps 1330's battery just went completely dead (past the one year warranty period obviously) and considering how stupidly expensive the dell replacements are,

I was wondering if anyone had any experience with non-official replacements. Some places seem to sell a generic version of that battery for about half the price.

So the question I'm asking myself now is: 'what's the catch?'

Dell :: Reformatting 1330

May 11, 2009

I've owned the XPS 1330 for a little more than a year, and because of a drop recently I have had to change the hard drive and reinstall vista. I believe I didn't properly install vista on to the computer and now it doesn't restart normally as it should, sometimes it will show a blue screen or it will restart continuously.

I called tech and because I didn't purchase extended warranty I'm restricted to certain telephone lines, and they would require that I pay up a sum to have them go through and check the problem.

Dell :: 1330 CPU Throttling Going On

Nov 17, 2008

I've got a 1330 with a T7250 processor, 4gigs of ram and a 8400GS.

I run my notebook all day long undervolted (tested stability a lot using orthos) so temperatures are less.

I also use RMClock to max out the cpu frequency when connected to AC (so that it stays locked at 2 ghz whenever i am in AC mode)

Also, my 8400 gs is Overclocked to 600/825 from stock 400/600.

The thing is the following:
when running COD4, every once in a while my frames drop noticeably. I then went to investigate this and using RMClock's monitoring tool i noticed that the frame drop was consistent to a throttling of the CPU.

However, whenever i test out my pc with ORTHOS or rthdribl i get higher temperatures than when running COD4 and the CPU doesn't ever thottle itself...

As you can see, this is a pretty strange thing because temperature is NOT being the "throttling factor" over here, as it is almost all times. I also have the gpu copper mod applied and haven't ever passed out 80 degrees on the gpu (which are pretty normal temps for an xps1330, specially overclocked)

What do you think could be causing this? It is really bugging me a a lot. Could it be maybe unstable voltages or something?

Dell :: XPS 1330 Screen

Nov 25, 2008

I was streaming a TV show from my XPS via the HDMI port to my HD TV. All of a sudden it froze. Couldn't Ctrl+Alt+Delte, couldn't do anything.

Shut it down with the power button and left it for a few minutes, re-booted and all I got was a white screen followed by strange lines on the screen.

What I have garnered from the forums that with the Nvidia GPU is burnt out or the motherboard needs replaced.

Its out of warranty so I wonder how much it would cost to fix or is it fixable if I bought the parts myself. I seen a link on the forum about replacing the Copper mod but surely this won't work if the GPU is burnt out?

Sony :: From Dell XPS 1330 To Z

Jun 3, 2009

I've had my XPS 1330 for a day and a half now, and I get random screen flickering, and the build doesnt seem that good as there is a randon dent near the track pad, and a piece of plastic that is unevenly sticking out on the left side of the laptop.

The Sony Z caught my eye because of the size and weight, and the looks. I have a couple question for you guys:

What are you averaging on battery life surfing the web and using microsoft word? feedback on the standard and large capacity battery would be great.

Also, did any of you guys select the fresh start option from sony? Is it worth it? Does the computer come with a lot of bloat ware?

SSD drive, this is an upgrade I really want, however sony's SSD drive costs so much compared to the Dell Samsung 256gb SSD. Did you guys go with sony's or upgrade yours later? How hard is it to upgrade by yourself later if you picked that path?

Customizing the computer it doesnt give you many options, what kind of wireless card does it come with?

How is the build quality? How is the keyboard?

It seems like I would be paying quite a bit more, but the 1600 dollar I spent on my XPS M1330 doesnt seem worth it in the long run.

Also, can anyone comment on Sony's customer service? This is what won me over with Dell.
Also is it worth getting the accidental damage plan/

There is only one Sony Z model right? The other ones on the page are different customizations?

How do you like your Z? Cons?

Dell :: Bluetooth Disappears After Standby. Vista + Bluetooth 370.

I noticed a few other threads around the internet about this issue, but couldnt find a definitive answer on how to get it fixed, so I thought I would try it here.

The problem is that when I go into standby and wake from it, my bluetooth icon disappears and bluetooth doesnt work.

I have a Dell Studio XPS 13 running Vista 64 with the Dell bluetooth 370 minicard. Ive tried using the generic windows bluetooth drivers as well as Dell's drivers.

Nothing appears in device manager as well. I have to manually go into bluetooth settings, disable the device, then re-enable it.
