Dell :: Removing Stickers From E6400 Right Palm Rest
Sep 28, 2009
Has anyone removed the stickers from the right palmrest of their E6400 (or similar)? The Windows Vista Basic sticker is really annoying to me, but it seems to be very securely attached and I don't want to ruin anything in the process of removing it....
I finally got around to taking the stickers off of the palmrest on my Z11, and I was left with a lot of goo.
I was too lazy to pick up "goo gone" cleaner so I just rubbed off the sticker goo with my thumb.
Problem is, it left a "carbon footstep" of where the sticker goo was which, no matter how hard I try, I can't clean.
If I look at it at a certain angle, I can see a whole pattern of where I rubbed the sticker goo off. It's really really ugly and I would advise anyone getting around to it to be smart about it and buy goo gone
There are dark grey marks on both side of the palm rest on my M1210 palm rest which doesn't come off no matter what i use on it. There were never there until i cleaned my laptop with some iso-propyl alcohol. I wiped the whole laptop and around the two palm rest area, silver stuff were coming off my laptop and transferring into onto my cloth.
The place where the silver things come off became a big dark spot on my laptop.
I sent my computer for repair to Dell after a fall and when it came back, it came back with a variety of new problem. turns out, dell people damaged the the motherboard and forgot a few screws with a new palm rest when they were "fixing" it.
Anyway, I got a technician to change the motherboard and I got a new palm rest. Now I have the feeling the palm rest/mouse pad get a bit warmer than before but I am not really sure.
How hot should it be for a normally functionning XPS 1530? It is not burning hot or anything but I don't remember if before it was getting this warm.
The silver trim that runs around the border of the case is starting to wear away and pit around where my palms rest. Is this something covered by warranty? And if not is it reasonably affordable / simple to fix?
The main reason I wanted this computer was for it's looks, so the fact that it's already starting to form visual defects is really, really annoying.
Has anyone attempted to replace the palmrest/keyboard assembly on their S XPS 16? I've done keyboards on older Dell laptops but this seems a bit more involved. The metal trim on the palm rest is coming up so it would be nice to have it replaced,
I used my Studio 1535 without problem about 4-5 months and temperatures were fine. But from some time I have very strange problem. First my charger became relatively very hot, my mother consider it as very hot as well.
After my hard disk becomes hot 39-40 C, and now I guess as result from fan system and HDD high temperature, my left palm rest (typically warm on most notebooks) is hot too.
I have an AR series Vaio and ive just got a new palm rest for it, can anyone tell me how easy they are to fit as i was expecting just a bit of plastic but its quite an in depth part where i think the keyboard and a few other things have to come off.
I was giving my 1645 a nice cleaning when I noticed a depression on the left hand side palm corner. The black of the palm rest actually sinks below the the silver trimming. Is this normal? is it supposed to be flush? Does it mean I need yet ANOTHER part replaced on this damn laptop?
Does anyone else get a slight tingling or vibrating sensation on the right palmrest? It doesn't really bother me but I just find it peculiar....it's really hard to describe except that my hand can feel some kind of vibrating going on (it's very subtle and doesn't make noise). Anybody else know what I mean?
i have had my like MB for just over a year...so my warranty just ran out. i noted that the top case has started cracking around the edge, and asking my friends and people who has the macbook, this is a pretty common problem. but mine is getting pretty bad.
Do you think Apple would send me a replacement topcase and if so, how much would it cost. i don't know if anyone else has had this problem and asked for a replacement.
1) Start with one corner of the sticker and pick at it with your nail and nothing else (unless you know for a fact what you are using will not scratch your computer) until the corner is lifted high enough to grab onto and peel back. Note: this is very tough in some occasions so just slowly continue to work the sticker, I promise it will come up.
2) Once you can get a hold of the corner you picked up, pull back slowly to ensure you bring at least most of the adhesive up with the sticker.
3) After you get the sticker up there will probably be a little adhesive right where you attempted to pick at the corner or maybe somewhere else. If this is the case do not rub it or pick it or anything, just use the adhesive on the sticker you took off to "dab" up the rest of the adhesive on you're computer. (Almost like back in the day when it was clean-up time and there was playdoh every where, you'd gather it all in one ball.) And repeat for however many stickers you have.
If you follow these rules and are careful, you will not have any trouble getting the unsightly childish stickers off of your computer.
Just found this looking on ebay cuz my hand hurts from typing all day. Funny thing is, I didn't even include M1330 in the search.
This thing looks pretty thin and I'm wondering if it would even really help. It says "natural chamois leather feeling" but I don't think it would really reduce the contact pressure on my wrist. What do you guys think?
Also, would this leave an adhesive residue when it comes time to remove it? I'm sending the seller a message to try and clarify this.
