Dell :: So This Is Why People Told Me To Avoid ...

Jul 20, 2009

Last month I placed an order for a laptop through Dell. Complications (cause by Dell) caused me to cancel the order, but I had already received the spare battery I ordered.

When I mentioned the battery that has already been shipped to me, the rep told me that I would be contacted later on instructions for returning the product.

Now, this was my first experience purchasing something like this so I assumed that was common procedure

Dell :: How Do I Avoid The 15% Restocking Fee?

Jul 29, 2009

So I ordered a Dell Studio XPS 1640 laptop and I tried to cancel it, but they already stated that it went into production and so not one person of any position and department would cancel it.

I recieved the laptop just a couple days ago and just got to calling Dell to return it.

I just called and the lady stated a 15% Restocking fee would apply to this return of the laptop that is over $300!

How do I avoid this 15% Restocking fee? I also ordered the 9-cell battery with the laptop, how do I avoid that Restocking fee?

Dell's customer service is sinking like the Titanic

Dell :: Avoid Or At Least Gaming On Laptops

Dec 15, 2009

I recently had the pleasure of having a laptop (inspiron 1520) crap out on me after only just two years (i bought it November 2007). I had a laptop cooler and used the laptop for ocassional LAN parties, gaming and also to do my homework until I broke. I know some of you might say it's my fault for not buying the extended warrenty but come on, a $1300 dollar machine should last at least four years with normal care. That's the least I expect from a normal laptop. Is that too much to ask for? Anyway after that whole expierience I'll never get another laptop for gaming again, especially from Dell.

If you are considering buying a laptop for gaming consider other options unless you really need to game on the go.

Flame on Dell lovers and laptop gamers!

Dell :: New Nvidia GPUs Use Older Solder Bumps To Avoid Failure

Sep 18, 2008

from [url]

There's been plenty of coverage surrounding Nvidia's admitted "abnormal failure rate" among what remains an unknown number of GPUs, but in case you missed it, here's the Cliff Notes version: Earlier this summer, Nvidia announced it would take a one time hit of $150-$200 million to cover warrany and repair costs associated with a bad batch of mobile GPUs. The chip maker insisted (and still does) that the failures were an isolated incident, but that's come into question. News and rumor site The Inquirer has been particularly vocal in its questioning of how widespread the problem really is, bringing up the possibility that the defective parts could be affecting both mobile and desktop parts, including G92 and G94 based GPUs.

Now that you're caught up, it's TGDaily who's bringing more speculation to the table. Referencing industry sources, the news site claims that Nvidia's future 45nm GPUs that have recently entered the qualification stage are being built with high-lead solder bumps. Earlier speculation pointed to Nvidia having made the switch to eutecic solders in reaction to the GPU failures, and if that's the case, the switch to solder bumps raises more questions than answers as to what's going on, and whether or not the problem has been solved or is ongoing.

HP/Compaq :: HP Envy 15 (V2) Inside Pictures For People Who Want To Reapply Thermal Paste

Apr 25, 2010

I decide to reapply thermal paste and took couple of pictures to show how to do it and what kind of parts you need to remove.

First you need to download service manual and read it. All the instructions are there for how to dissemble the notebook. Following pictures might help you to understand service manual.

Things you need to unplug before remove the top panel

Things you need to unplug/unscrew before remove heatsinks

Here's the CPU picture without heatsink

Cleaned CPU heatsink

GPU picture without heatsink

Cleaned GPU heatsink

I use white cotton cloth and alcohol to clean the CPU/GPU and heatsink(s) and use AS5 as a thermal paste. CPU/GPU temp drop nearly 4C-5C. I need to wait until AS5 settle down.

I'm expecting another 2C drop after that.

glossy widescreen 15.4 WLED display (1440x900) as a choice, which is what I want, but doesn't. When I view the system specs though, that choice is listed as on option.

Dell Vostro 3460 :: Not Boot Only Loads The Dell Logo And Then Shows A Black Page

Feb 9, 2013

my laptop vostro 3460 won't boot any more. When I turn it on it loads the Dell logo (I suppose it passes the POST) but then it just shows a black page. It could be anything, but I guess that it may have something to do with Windows 8 and the UEFI system. I also would be quite happy to install linux mint and get rid of Windows, but I don't know how to change the boot priority order.

So my questions are:

1 is it a hardware issue ? if not, can I solve my problem easily ?

2 how can I change the boot priority order, to install mint ?
