Dell :: Slight Tingling/vibrating Sensation On The Left Palm Rest For 1647?
Mar 11, 2010
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 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?
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.
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 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....
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 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 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.
So yeah I wasn't exactly handling the thing with utmost care, was holding the open laptop one-handed by the left front corner, heard a plastic snap sound... I press down on the flat black plastic area where your left palm would rest, just above the PC card slot.. it's a bit squishy. Does it flex for yours too, am I paranoid? Its not a problem just wondering...
I put a 320 gig 7200prm hard-drive into the laptop. Now the laptop is slightly vibrating.
I have twice removed and re-seated the 7200prm HD into the laptop. It's in there firmly, but it still slightly vibrates. The small vibration is most noticeable on the wrist rests, and the upper left side of the laptop.
No vibration at all in the upper right corner of the laptop.
I just received my e6400 yesterday and I love everything about it. However, the entire computer vibrates slightly. The vibration is definitely coming from the hard drive. I called Dell tech support and based on the description I gave them they told me to just send the computer back for a replacement. I would like to keep this specific computer and just replace the HDD (I like the LG screen and I don't want to get stuck with a different make/model). I'm going to call customer service on monday to see if I can get a replacement drive.
I currently have a 160GB Momentus 7200.3 st9160411asg, it doesn't make any noise, it just vibrates. I tried reducing the vibration by re-seating the drive and applying some electrical tape. I also turned on the quite mode in BIOS. Neither of these worked.
I never had this problem in other laptops with solid HDD mounts. I don't want to feel any vibration from the HDD under normal use. Is this possible with the e6400 considering the poor HDD bay design? I did read that some members had less vibration with other drives. I guess there are several ways to address this problem.
1. Request a specific model of 7200rpm drive from Dell that has the least chance of vibrating (can I do that?)
2. Downgrade to a 5400rpm drive and hope that it doesn't vibrate. (it would help if I could request specific model here)
3. Upgrade to an SSD, problem solved. (However I fail to see why I should have to spend an additional $255 and loss capacity just to get a drive that does not vibrate, especially in a high end computer)
4. Get the cheapest drive from Dell and buy an aftermarket drive HDD or SSD.
5. Send the E6400 back and buy a T400 which will more than likely not have a vibrating drive.
After typing all this out I just realized that the Dell tech may want me to send back the whole computer because there may be something wrong with the frame that allows the vibration to propagate.
On the featured systems, i was thinking of purchasing the second one which has the i7 processor, but i have a few questions before i would like to buy it.
1) This is a 1645 system meaning that throttling will be there right? 2) Does installing the A09 BIOS Solve the throttling issue? 3) Without using throttlestop is there any way to control the throttling? 4) Is it compulsory that throttling occurs on all the systems or some don't have it? 5) Will me playing NFS Undercover cause the laptop to throttle?....
I just got a new Sony Z-series laptop. It is a nice laptop, but I don't why there is a very slight vibration. It is not very serious but enough to make me feel uncomfortable. I am not sure whether it is caused by the fan or the harddrive.
I just picked up a e4200 with backlit keyboard and whenever the back light is turned on there is a noise (slight buzzing or hum) that can be heard. As soon as the back light turns off the sound goes away. It's kind of bugging me because you wouldn't think that the back light would add to the decibel level of the laptop..
Okay so i probaly have the weirdest problem ever with this laptop, so the issue started when the display stopped working properly and would only work at a certain angle or when u would apply slight pressure on a certain part of the screen, faulty monitor correct?wrong. When i uninstalled the intel gpu drivers and reverted back to the standard microsoft display adapter all these problems disappeared, screen would work at all angles and the display would have no issues, so that sums out the possibility of the monitor being faulty. The display starts having these issues everytime the intel display drivers are installed, it just blows my mind how this is even a thing. The screen flickers twice and turns off after windows is done booting when the intel drivers are installed and works perfectly without them.
