Dell :: Studio XPS 16-lcd Screen Colors Are Over-kill

Mar 14, 2009

I have seen this issue posted online (via Google) but I haven't been able to find a resolution to the problem (because I don't feel like sitting here reading through hundreds of pages in forums or trying to search using the perfect keyword to pull up my answer).

The color saturation on the 1080p screens that come with the Studio XPS 16 are extremely over-kill.

This notebook comes with a ATI card and not NVidia (I'm use to NVidia and being able to use the "digital vibrance" setting to 'calm down' the over-kill of the colors. However ATI's setting for this is greyed out and can't be accessed ......

Dell :: Got A New Studio 1745, Dissapointing Skin Colors On Screen

Nov 5, 2009

My old notebook keyboard died, and despite my apprehensions about buy a notebook with a glossy screen, I recently purchased the most recent upgrade of the Dell Studio - a 1745 (according to the number on the bottom of the laptop) from Best Buy for about $800.

While I was worried about the glossy part, it turns out there's another, much larger problem - I intended to use it to edit photos (I'm not professional, just like to play around with them sometimes) and I've found the colors, despite being a "truelife" display (I got the "900p" one, 1600x900) to be kind of crappy when it comes to viewing skin tones. They're just sort of...flattened. My pictures that look good on my regular lcd (21.3" Samsung SyncMaster 213t) and my hd tv look weird and unnatural on my studio laptop. The pictures that look borderline-ok on my other monitors look terrible on my laptop because the skin tones are all messed up.

And I don't mean that like "I'm super picky about skin tones", I mean more like "anyone looking at the picture on the laptop lcd would notice it looks noticeably weird".

Naturally, there are a picture or 2 that actually looks better on the laptop screen - in one of them, there's a yellowish cast in the background when viewed on the camera lcd and my tv (it's also a common issue with pictures taken with my camera), but it's not there on the laptop screen. Unfortunately, since I need to be able to adjust the white balance on my laptop to look good on your average monitor, this is kind of a problem for me.

I really hate to wait a month for a new computer, but I was thinking that maybe the "17.3 Full HD (1080p) B+RG LED Display with TrueLife and Camera" would be better with colors? Or is there something wrong with my particular screen? The Studio with the same specs costs $1,139 online (as opposed to the $780 I paid at Best Buy) so it's a lot more money, but I could probably do it. I considered ordering a refurbished Precision m6400, but some of the reviews of the screen seemed kind of down (especially for such an expensive computer), plus it sounded like it's pretty huge to lug around.

Dell :: Studio 1537, Viewing Angles And Colors On 1280x800 Vs 1440x900

Mar 6, 2009

According to specifications from Dell's web site 1280x800 display has considerably smaller viewing angle than display with 1440x900 resolution,

particularly for vertical angles, which are +15/30 for the former and 45 for the latter model.

Can anyone confirm that difference is this significant in practice as well?

And how do they compare in color and overall image quality, as 1280x800 is LED as well on 1537 according to specifications.

Dell :: Studio XPS 13 Color Options

Feb 12, 2009

this is my first time posting, and i have a question.

i've heard that later on there will be different color lids for the sxps 13 and 16.

i understand that this is both a studio and an xps, so it makes me wonder if i can have cool designs on the top. i don't know how thats gonna fly with the leather, because black is the only color that i can think of that would go with it.

so heres my question: do you think that dell will release custom, or at least different colors for the sxps? possibly midnight blue, the RED one, white, brown, green. anything. and if you do, when do you think they will release the new options?

Dell :: Studio XPS 16 Might Soon Have A Bordeaux Red Color Option

Mar 23, 2009

So far, the leather-trimmed Studio XPS notebook only comes in black. But that could change very soon.

Dell's designers are considering a red (or according to them, "Bordeaux") plastic/leather lid combo, pictured here. It is not, however, part of the (Product) Red line.

Dell :: HDMI + HDTV Issues. Studio XPS 13. No Picture, Flicking Colors. Timing Issues?

Jul 13, 2009

My new Studio XPS 13 with integrated NVIDIA 9400M graphics came in. I tried to hook up the HDMI port to my HDTV, a Sony KDF-E50A10:

http://www.sonystyle.ca/commerce/ser...ductId=1001599

On my screen, all that displays is some random flickering colors. Ive tried changing the resolutions and various settings in the NVIDIA control panel, but still no luck.

Does anyone have any suggestions on what to try? I figure HDMI should be pretty much plug and play. The TV is 720p and Ive tried resolutions from 1280x720 to 800x600. I dont really have any experience with HDMI to be honest.

There are some custom settings in the NVIDIA control panel, but I am not too familiar with these settings:

Dell :: Studio XPS 1645 RGBLED Color Issue

Feb 9, 2010

So I've been following the RGBLED calibration thread and don't think i've found my answer through all the ICC profiles and whatnot.

I've had a Studio XPS 1640 which i exchanged for a 1645. The 1640's screen was showing up as way too saturated with blue causing everything to have very cool overtones. I had that screen replaced only to see the same issue.

Upon receiving my new 1645 I've noticed the same thing. The screen (although slightly to a lesser extent) is still pushing way to cool a picture. None of the ICC profiles have helped other than to push too much green as a result of the change.

My question is should I consider this to be an issue and request a replacement screen. Is there anyone out there who doesn't have an over saturation of the RGB colors in their display? I've seen people complain about too much reds and some with too much green. Also the display going to 1 of the 3 colors entirely. (I have not experience this)

I'm comparing this to my Dell Dimension 2200 Monitor which although is not RGB LED i would assume color accuracy would be near to (although more vibrant) as my samsung 245BW LCD.

Things I've tried. (all of the ICC Profiles provided in the display thread, Windows 7 Color calibration and finally ATI's Color control system in the CCC.

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."

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

There have been quite a few posts regarding the TT's touchpad.

Dell :: Dull Colors On The XPS 13

Sep 30, 2009

I have the wled panel here and colors look a bit dull compared to other laptop screens I've used in the past.

Text is fine and smooth but the overall color saturation isn't as colorful as it "should" be. I said should because this might be how it looks in default.

I went into the Nvidia control panel and saw I could change pretty much anything from contrast to digital vibrance?? There are two options where I can restore the desktop color settings to, either "Other applications control color settings or "Use NVIDIA setting

Dell :: 1640 RGB LED Bizarre Colors

Jan 13, 2010

A few times recently, I've had what seems to be problems with the backlighting in the RGB LED screen on my 1640, which I purchased back in September. The screen is usually phenomenal, but a few times it seems that one or two of the backlighting colors will shut off. This distorts the images so that they all seem to be dominated by a red, green, or blue hue (mostly green or red, I think). And then it will start changing between the R, G, or B, which looks really crazy. The only way I've been able to fix this is by restarting once or twice. I'm scared that maybe the monitor needs to be replaced. What do you guys think?

Dell Inspiron 7720 :: Flashing Colors On Screen

Feb 25, 2013

I recently purchased an Inspiron 7720 in October 2012. A week ago, the laptop started freezing up while playing world of warcraft. I checked my Nvidia video card and there were some updates. I installed them and the computer started working normal again. On Saturday, while I was using Skype to transfer a file, the computer gave me a white screen and I had to hold down the power button to get it to shutdown. It rebooted and was working normal again. Then yesterday (Sunday), while using video chat on Skype the computer screen went into a flashing color pattern and I had to hold down the power button to get it to shutdown. Are there any diagnostic tests that I can run before calling Dell's tech department? I believe it is a video card issue but not completely sure.
