Dell :: Screen Resolution On New Vostro 3400 And 3500?

Mar 10, 2010

There is no configurable screen and the tech specs don't say other than "HD" which most people use for 1366x768.

Has anyone been able to confirm the screen resolution on the new Vostro 2500 series or 3400?

Any idea on how long it takes them to make it a bit more configurable?

Dell :: Inspiron 15 Or Vostro 3500?

Apr 13, 2010

I am looking for a little expert advice on a Dell 15" and wonder what are the main differences between the Inspiron, Studio & Vostro models? I will be using it to display photos and websites and will not use it for gaming. The display and overall looks are probably the most important. . BB has a Inspiron 15 with a i3 processor for $649.

I am also looking at the Lenovo 15" models because I think I have narrowed my choices down to these 2 manufactures.

Dell Vostro 3400 :: Getting Very Hot After Long Usage

Jan 8, 2013

I have a Dell Vostro 3400 laptop that since some months ago is getting very hot after long usage.

I work with this laptop so it is usually powered up all day long.

I always keep the laptop placed on a fan basement that has 3 fans working all the time.

Well... since some days ago, laptop suddenly shuts down powering itself off. When that happen, I place the palm of my hand touching the keyboard and without lying, my hand burns. So I think this is the reason why the laptop shuts down, and I cannot power up again until some period has passed.

Why may be the reason of this heat? hardware problem? how can I diagnose it?

Dell Vostro 3400 :: Slow To Startup

Feb 4, 2011

I've had a Vostro for a couple months now and continue to be plagued by slow startup times of 2-3 minutes. Just as a frame of reference, I have 3 systems: a desktop I built, a Latitude E6400 and the Vostro. All have similar specs - a Core2Quad on the desktop, a dual-core Centrino on the Latitude and a Core i5 on the Vostro; each with 4GB RAM. I've installed Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit and the same software on each of the machines - if anything, the Vostro has LESS software on it than the other 2. I downloaded all the drivers directly from this site.

At first I thought the startup time was slow due to a 5400 RPM hard drive, but last night I replaced it with a 7200 RPM (though not a fresh install - I took an image of the existing installation using imagex and applied it to the new drive) and it's still slow to boot. I turned off some programs and services in msconfig and using Revo and CCleaner and still get similar results.

Just now I turned both laptops on simultaneously to make sure I'm not making a big deal out of it (especially since the Vostro goes straight to desktop and the Latitude requires me to enter credentials) and I still got to my Latitude's desktop first - despite having to re-enter the password a couple of times!

I'll note that this is the only time the Vostro feels slow at all. Once I'm in everything runs smoothly and resuming from hibernate is noticeably faster (reasonably so I suppose)....

Dell Vostro 3500 :: Can Use A Standard USB Keyboard And Mouse With Such A Laptop

Jul 1, 2010

I have never used a laptop before (I prefer to work on a server machine) but am considering one at present.I'm looking at a Vostro 3500 but that could change.

1)  Can I use a standard USB keyboard and mouse with such a laptop?  (No need for special devices!)

2)  Are there any problems with PS-2 to USB adaptors connecting keyboard and mouse to a USB port?  (Yes I have a few keyboards and mice in storage!)

3)  Can I install a standard out of the box version of Windows 7 Ultimate (already licensed) on the Vostro 3500?

4)  I saw reference somewhere to touch screen control in Win 7 coming sometime.  What are the release plans for such capabilities in Dell laptops?

Dell Vostro 3400 :: Fingerprint Reader Not Detected - Can't Install Drivers

Aug 7, 2012

I just bought a Dell Vostro 3400, and i am having a nightmare with this Fingerprint Reader. I tried installing the Digital Persona Fingerprint Reader [URL] .... and it worked, but the program kept telling me that there was no Fingerprint reader detected. Then i tried to uninstall and reinstall the program, but when I did, the program said that a previous version was not found to update, so it couldn't be installed. I don't have a recovery CD either.

Sony :: Parts Of The Screen Have Low Screen Resolution One Brand New Laptop

Apr 18, 2010

I just bought a brand new Sony Vaio VPCF11M1E and I have the following problem:

Because in normal stand the screen is very small, I enlarged it to x150%. Everything becomes bigger, but the following parts are blurry and absolutely not sharp:

-Pop ups, of programs and of windows itself (like advanced settings of something and then a new windows pops up, that one is then totally blurry; you can read it, but it is not the good resolution)

-Google chrome (and with that, all the internet pages)

-The google chrome on the desktop is also very blurry, while all the others, are still sharp (after the enlargement by 150%)

I have tried everything (32 bits colours is on, cleartype is on). I also did a system restore to the first days I bought the laptop and then it was on 100% so the resolution was excellent, but then I put it on 150% and again, the parts I mentioned above, were blurry.

Dell :: Screen Resolution Sucks

Jul 28, 2009

I just got my new Studio XPS 1640 in the mail today and got a little excited. I started tweaking stuff galore, following the variety of vista tweaking thread for reducing boot time, speeding up your comp etc... but I think I must have screwed something up because the computer started lagging like crazy. i couldn't even navigate in "My Computer"

So me, being all excited and dumb decided that I would reinstall Vista and partition my C drive (which is a 256gb SSD btw, if that's important), instead of learning about the Factory Image Restore.

So now my screen resolution sucks, and I'm frustrated and tired of trying to fix this. I just want it back to how it was before, fresh out of the box. I have the Vista CD and The Driver CD, and I tried installing every damned driver and application and whatever, but it's never the same as it came out of the box.

I can't find the webcam or facial recognition software anywhere and I'm missing the cool dock at the top and bleh. I'll stop ranting, but if anyone. ANYONE, knows how to help me I would greatly appreciate it. I just want the good laptop that I paid 2000$ for.

Dell :: E6500WUXGA Changing Screen Resolution

Dec 26, 2008

I just bought a Latitude E6500 with a WUXGA LCD with Nvidia NVS 160M to replace my old Inspiron 8600 also with WUXGA screen.

I am puzzled with one thing : with my old 8600 I was able to change resolution from 1920X1200 way back to 800X600 without any loss of quality. The screen always ramained crisp and clear.

Now, with my new E6500, anything less than 1920 X 1200 gets fuzzy. I read all about the "native resolution" speach, but what I can't understand is why the old laptop was able to show all resolutions properly, and the new on doesn't.

Dell :: XPS 1730 Screen Resolution And Clock Issues

Apr 20, 2010

My XPS 1730 has a couple of issues I can't seem to resolve. I just updated the bios to the latest version but that didn't help. If I set my clock to 9:45, it will run until 10:38 and then revert back to 9:45. It will do this endlessly. When I installed the new bios, I got a message say the RTC was fixed as I might have a clock problem. The clock ran last night for about 4 hours properly. Then I closed the lid. When I opened it this morning, the clock displayed the same time as when I closed it last night.

In addition, when I leave the computer on and just close the lid, the resolution goes from the highest (my preference) to the lowest when I open the lid again.

I have a new battery in the machine as well as it was left on last night with the power cord plugged in. All I did was close the lid.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Dell :: Vostro Screen Wobbled/looseunable To Repair, Now Plastic Around Screen Is Loose

Nov 13, 2008

I have a Vostro 1500, which I bought 10 months ago. About 3 months ago the screen became loose and wobbled about 10 degrees when computer was moved or if I was on the train and it went over bumps. I tightened the screws as advised but this did not have any real effect. Dell engineer came and replaced the back cover with new hinges, (as they though hinges may be broken/at fault but they were fine,) but some wobble was still noticable so he ordered a new base. He came today and took the screen out complete with all the screen casing out of the old base, and put it into the new base, but still wobbled, so just put it back in the old base as it wouldn't have cured the problem.

Now yesterday, after he put the new back cover on, he had to take the plastic around the front of the screen off. After he put it together I noticed that the screen is no longer flush with the plastic surround and it annoys me! Am I just being finicky/picky or should I ask them to fix it?

Dell :: Vostro 1500 LCD Screen Replacement. New Screen Acting Weird

Jan 30, 2010

Hi all, new person here. I did a search on LCD screens but can't find my problem anywhere.

Here's the background and problem:

Vostro 1500 with Chungwha 1280x800 screen that got cracked by my kids. I ordered a replacement screen from a company off that was highly rated. Got the screen and installed it. It is make by Chi Mei. When I powered up the computer I got 8 screens of start up and it was very dim. Once it went past the Windows start up screen everything went black. It would only continue to Windows screen, still showing 8 windows in safe mode. I hooked up the old screen and everything worked fine.

I contacted the company and they air expressed me another screen, which I received yesterday. Hooked it up and got the exact same problem, which leads me to believe it's the Dell that doesn't like it. I will try and attach some photos because I am at a loss.

Thanks for your help in advance.

Dell :: Screen Resolution Options For 15.6" 1080p Display

Apr 26, 2009

What are the 5 screen resolution options for the Dell Studio 1555 display with a 1900 x 1080 display?

"15.6 Inch Full High Definition(1080p) High Brightness LED Display with TrueLife and Camera/Facial Recognition"

Is 1280 x 800 one of the 5 resolution settings available under the Display Settings? I believe this is the lowest resolution setting where pictures are not distorted and out of proportion. Anything lower, like 1280 x 720, pictures become distorted....

Dell Studio 1555 :: Upgrading Display Screen In Better Resolution

But I'm encountering a big problem, my display is weird (there is some green filter added) in addition Windows 8 does not completely (it stop after the blue logo).

I can see something if I boot on my Ubuntu USB. Even the boot logo have the green filter.

On the others side if I come back to the original disciple screen, all is well. So, at a first sight I think it is not a connector problem or a graphics card problem.

It's a Dell Studio 1555 with a ATI Mobility Radeon 4500....

Dell :: New Studio 1737 Screen Resolution And Icon/font Size

Mar 3, 2009

had a Dell 1735..screen resolution was perfect and webpages i visited looked nice and sharp etc...purchased a new Dell studio 1737 laptop and it seems that the default setting is 1920 x 1200..this makes everything very sharp but to small to work with...the correct setting for the correct size etc...seems to be 1440 x 900..but when i change the settings to this size everything is the correct size but not as sharp...and websites i visit such as Facebook etc..the text on these pages seems, when I place my old Dell studio 1735 beside my new Dell studio 1737 my old laptop which is set at 1440 x old laptop looks far sharper and superior to my new laptop! My old 1735 has the highest setting for resolution at 1440 x 900 while the new 1737 seems to have a higher setting option of 1920 x 1200. Is there a big difference between the 1735 and 1737? Am I stuck with just keeping my setting on my new 1737 at 1440 x 900 and putting up with the blurriness etc? Have tried everything from going into Catalyst center to adjusting settings in appearance in vista etc..

Dell Latitude E5520 :: Citrix Screen Resolution At 1260x 760 When It Should Be 1920x1024

Apr 6, 2012

When I first got my Latitude E5520 (i7, 8Gb RAM, Intel HD graphics) I could connect to a Citrix based VDI desktop with a screen resolution of 1920x1024. Suddenly it dropped to 1280x760. I have never been able to get it to shift back to 1920.

The Citrix client has been replaced with both available options. Same result. Every possible configuration setting has been set to 1920x1024 to no avail.

The native desktop is at 1920x1024. Shifting into the VDI session, the only screen resolution offered is 1280x760.

I have also reloaded the graphics driver. Same results.Going into the advanced graphics configuration on the laptop confirms 1920x1024.

Other laptops allow me to log in to the same VDI desktop in 1920x1024 resolution so it is isolated to the laptop itself...
