Dell :: Returning My 1645

Dec 9, 2009

I'm going to be sending back my sxps 1645 to dell. It seems like this whole model is buggy and I don't feel like paying good money to be their beta tester. So I'm wondering what the best way to wipe my solid state drive is.

What is the best way to ensure private data is completely gone on an SSD before it goes back?

Dell :: Keeping The XPS 1530 Cool

Oct 13, 2008

I just bought a XPS 1530 and Im looking for a few opinions on keeping it running cool.

1. What fan controller software should I use for the 1530?

2. Is it possible to replace the stock GPU fan with an aftermarket one? If so is there a guide on that.

3. Similar to question #2 is there a guide on replacing the thermal paste on the 1530 with a 8600m GT GPU?

4. Whats the best laptop cooler for the 1530 that lines up to the fans underneath.

Dell :: Touchpad Not Keeping Its Settings?

Feb 27, 2009

Whenevr I remove my e5600 from its dock to use the laptop on the go, the touchpad always goes back to its default settings.

I cant figure out why, but im thinking maybe my wireless Logitech mouse/keyboard that I use while docked has something to do with it?

Dell :: Keeping My New Vostro 1510 Clean

Feb 8, 2009

I received a new Dell Vostro 1510 a few weeks ago and have to say although the lid looks nice it's a major fingerprint magnet. What kind of an electronics cleaner can I use and what should I use to apply the cleaner directly to the lid with to help keep the lid clean and free of my fingerprints?

Also what should I use to help keep the LCD monitor clean? I certainly won't use Windex and a paper towel. MY monitor is the anti-glare entry level monitor which works great for web surfing and email but not so great for watching DVD's or online videos. It's too late now but if I had to reconfigure the laptop again which other monitor choice should I have selected for better viewing quality?

Lenovo 11e E/Edge :: Keeping Fn Key On

Jun 3, 2011

the way the F keys have been switched on my Edge 14", today I came across some time to fiddle around with it. I googled what I needed to do...and came across this question on yahoo, which is exact what I need. I bought Lenovo Thinkpad Edge several months ago, and I really like it so far. But I use MS Excel a lot and I always use shortcut keys which involve F1~F12. On my thinkpad, I always have to hit "Fn" and "F1~F12" keys simultaneously, and it is a little annoying since I've been used to using F1~F12 keys without hitting "Fn". So I went to BIOS keyboard setting, and enabled the Function key lock. It became a little bit better, because now I don't have to hit "Fn" and F1~F12 simultaneously, but I could press "Fn" AND THEN, F1~F12. But what I really want is the "Fn" key always on without pressing it. On the BIOS screen, it says hitting "fn" key twice keeps "Fn" key always on, but whenever I hit it twice and hit F1~F12, it doesn't function like F1~F12 key, but it just controlls the sound volume or display light. Is there any way to keep "Fn" key always on without pressing it everytime I want to use F1~F12 keys?"
In short, in the BIOS page, once "enabled", you are able to double tap the Fn key and have it stay on without you pressing it each time; however, it doesn't appear to work that way and turns off everytime you use a F key.

Acer :: 5920G Is Not Keeping Time

Feb 5, 2009

Ive got a tad problem with my acer 5920 , just bought it. Love it but only 1 thing is bugging me. I normally dont keep the battery in as i just move it around in my room . However if i turn off my laptop and turn the mains off and then turn the mains on and the computer on again, The time will reset to the default 2007 time. I thought most laptops have a battery in them to hold time like computers. This does not happen with any of my old laptops, do you guys experience this?

Dell :: POLL: Vista Or XP

Feb 27, 2008

Since vista has come out, I have installed it three times to give it a chance, and all three times I was upset about how slow it seemed, but my new M1710 came with a license for vista ultimate and I just received the install DVD from Dell and was wondering. As of today, a clean install of vista with ALL updates and some tweaking, would it affect my FPS in games enough to notice? Would it help if I upgraded to 4gb? (3.2gb addressable)

Dell :: Poll: GPU Max Temperature

Nov 2, 2008

There was a poll for idle temps, but I am more interested in your values for max temp for the GPU.

Setting: 8 mins of running Rthdribl on a M1330; HWMonitor read-out for max. GPU temp in Celsius.

Mine would be 104C. After another 2mins the GPU clocked down, resulting in "only" 98C.

Dell :: How Long Have You Had/will You Keep Your Laptop? (POLL)

Aug 16, 2009

I'm just starting my 5th year with my Inspiron 6000. Bought it in August 2005 for just under $800 out the door.

I was planning on buying a new one but I realized that everything in that price range these days isn't really a huge improvement over what I already have, and since the thing still works, there's really no need to upgrade.

I have had to make a few fixes over the years (upgraded HD, RAM, new keyboard, screen/inverter, battery, top bezel, power jack, power adapter) but at this point it's almost a matter of pride to be able to fix something for $15 or $20 by just buying the part on eBay and maybe spending 30-60 minutes with a screwdriver.

Dell :: Warranty Poll On Laptops Preliminary

Mar 16, 2008

I took statistics and numerical analysis a LONG time ago in college, and I'm afraid my poll questions will not be as relevant as they could be, or could cross over from one group to another. Who out there has some expert advise? You can either post here or PM me. I will make a thread for each generation (i9300/xpsg2/m170, i9400/m1710, xps 1730, etc). Maybe having the XPS's on their own? I don't want to thin the numbers out too much. These are the poll questions I postulate:

-it's worked fine! (regardless of if you have an active warranty or not)
-some parts are broken but I don't trust dell warranty, prob. end up on ebay searching for some.
-i've returned bad parts and gotten good ones, and now it works
-the computer died and I got a replacement which was better
-the computer died and I got a replacement which was worse
-the computer died and I have yet to get a replacement confirmation (not necessarily in your hands yet)
-i'm out of warranty and SOL

Voices from others will be heard, of course. Like Galileo said, "In questions of science, the authority of a thousand is not worth the humble reasoning of a single individual."

Apple :: Keeping My Unibody On Charge - Hampers Battery Life- Or Enhances It

Aug 13, 2009

I know that keeping a battery on charge after it is fully charged can decrease its battery life by 30%, but I also know that Apple's batteries automatically stop charging when they have reached 100%, wait till the battery drops to 97%, and then start charging again. I need to know if the battery life will degrade if I keep the laptop on charge...

Dell :: Returning A Vs HP

Sep 19, 2009

I was wondering as it's not super clear on the Dell site: Can you return a product if your within your 21 days and not be charged a restocking fee? Will Dell send you a shipping label to return the product or do you pay?

With HP if you were in your 21 days they would issue you a full refund and all you had to do was ship the laptop back and they sent you a label.

I'm referring to Notebooks on here.

Dell :: Returning Studio XPS 13

Feb 12, 2009

Well I almost feel "heartbroken" over this whole affair. I finally got the machine yesterday and have had 2 days of pure customer service horror.

The overall look of the laptop, the promised features, the feel of it - all FANTASTIC. I fell in love with the machine the moment it arrived. Then.. I tried to connect my WiFi.

The WiFi was completely defective. Unable to connect to any wireless network. After hours and hours with technical support, an in home tech, and more customer service headache .....

Sony :: Poll: Problems With The TT's Touchpad?

Jun 14, 2009

There have been quite a few posts regarding the TT's touchpad. It would appear that most of the TT owners on the forums have not had an issue with it (myself included), though there are some people who have had problems -- so I thought a poll would hopefully shed light on how widespread the problem is or isn't.

Dell :: Refusing Delivery Or Returning Through ?

Feb 15, 2009

I bought a Dell Mini 9 from the outlet and its already shipped. I'm having second thoughts though because of the $245 deal through Sam's club for a brand new one when I payed $230 for a used one.

I'm also not sure if I even need a netbook since I have a XPS M1530 and want to hold off until the 09 Fall Semester to get a netbook (if I decide I want one).

So my question is this: Would I be charged a 15% restocking fee if I refuse delivery? Would I be charged a 15% restocking fee for returning through Dell? Does it depend on whether I open the box or not? Would I have to pay for shipping?/not be refunded shipping/taxes?

Dell :: Returning A XPS 1330 After 1 Year

Nov 11, 2008

I purchased the XPS 1330 January 2008, and it has been giving me problems forever. I got my motherboard replaced 4 times, 4 new heatsinks, a new CPU, a new Monitor. Additionally, the service I have received was very poor.

Is there a department I could call to try and return this? Also, now finally, they agreed to do a swap, and to top it off, they are sending me the wrong keyboard layout. I purchased the laptop in Canada (US Keyboard layout) and I am currently in the UK. I have 3 years international warranty. When I filed the swap with the first technician, I asked specifically for a US keyboard; however, upon calling today, I was told, I would be given a UK Keyboard instead.

So, anyone know what I can do? Or better yet, anyone want to take this laptop off my hands (you will obviously get the swap).
