Jan 15, 2009

130 bucks for a 6-cell battery on my 1400? Ouch!

I'm not looking for one just yet but I was curious and looked it up. Are the prices still inflated after that factory fire or something?

Dell :: Inspiron E1505 Battery Options?

Feb 3, 2009

My mother's Dell Inspiron e1505 needs a new battery. However, after she did research, she said that the OEM Dell batteries are really bad, and that 3rd-party options (such as Rayovac) are better.

I've always been told the opposite--that the OEM batteries are the best.

I woul like to know how much i can get with the 9 cell battery, LED display, ssd and 8400.

HP/Compaq :: HP DV7T Battery Options

Mar 11, 2010


running reasonably solid (and still on Vista!) I have definitely got my money's worth out of it like 1000X over .

Only a couple of issues - first, my charger went TU about 3 days before the 12 month warranty expired. I ran out and quickly snagged a Kensington replacement: pretty nice slimline that has multiple adapters, it's actually been handy as an upstairs 2nd charger. HP for the record, also sent me a brand new OEM replacement without too much hassle, just using on online service chat

OK, the matter I'm posting about: my battery has finally gotten wrecked to the point where it's good for about 15-18 minutes on performance, maybe 22-24 on low power settings.

I'd like to be semi-portable again so I'm weighing these options:

Another "stock spec" 8 cell, which I believe it a G08

I see HP offers (through various sellers) a "green" replacement, model G04. I don't think it has longer life, but it's supposed to be warranted for 3 years, plus offer a guarantee of much less charge loss (I think it's something like 95% availability the first year) and replaced pro-rated based on use. Sounds like a better option - the only thing I find peculiar is it's indicated as a 4-cell, with "8-cell" equivalent. I don't really case as long as it works!

My 3rd option is to go aftermarket with a 12-cell battery. The extra weight size isn't that big of a deal, and I even like the idea if the rear being elevated (in my office, I usually keep it hanging off the corner of the desk for better ventilation).

Dell :: Vostro 1500 8600M GT Replacements

Sep 22, 2009

I apologize in advance if there is already a thread dedicated to this issue as I made sure to search around to see whether someone had already started one on this issue.

My question goes out to other Dell 1500 Vostro owners who ended up with a defective card and underwent the painstaking process of replacing their 8600M GT cards:

Have the replacement cards been defective as the stock ones? Are the replacement 8600M GT cards better built to withstand heating? Has Nvidia fixed the silicone issues?

Dell :: XPS 13 "Extended Battery Life" Option In The Advanced Power Options?

Apr 12, 2009

#1 - What is the "Dell Extended Battery Life" option in the advanced power options? What does it do? The help article just says that extends the battery life.

#2 - With the facial recognition software, is there any way to take multiple "logon" images for the same user? Like sometimes I have the laptop on my lap

and sometimes it is on my desk and sometimes it is on the side so I can use with my external monitor and it seems like it won't log me in automatically unless I am in the exact position as when I enrolled it.

Dell :: Prediction: More Studio XPS Screen Replacements & Complaints

I'm talking about the clear plastic filter in front of the actually LCD panel.

Right now, it's not a big problem. But you can easily imagine it will become one when, a year or two from now, sizeable amount of dust particules get stuck all over the screen

Dell :: Best Screen Options?

Apr 6, 2009

I currently have a latitude x1, it served me well, but it's time to upgrade. My options are something within the 13"-15" screen range --no more external disk drives--such a pain in the backside. My main concern with which i need assistance is what

Dell screen would be best visually? My position requires extensive computer use so I need a screen that would be best on the eyes. What i noticed with my current model is that it puts a lot of strain on my eyes. Perhaps it is the brightness, or perhaps it is the actual quality of the screen, in any case I need help selecting an appropriate model for me.

I specifically want to go with dell because I receive a discount through them.

money is not an issue. I primarily use my notebook for MS Office applications, media editing, and web browsing -- occasionally play a game or two or watch a movie.

My current options are Vostro 1320
screen options- 13.3 ultrasharp WXGA LCD w/true life
or, -anti glare 13.3 WXGA.

XPS Studio 13
-Edge to edge 13.3 HD WXGA LCD
-Edge to edge 13.3 HD WXGA Slim WLED LCD

Latitude E4300
-13.3 Wide screen WXGA WLED panel for latitude ON

Dell :: 1545. Options?

Mar 20, 2009

I bought a Inspiron 1545 in the outlet section, got it for $420 with a coupon I got off ebay.

I got the laptop and I absolutely love it! But there is a problem, the graphics card driver keeps crashing, this is an annoying problem and I think it might progressively get worse, so I'm worried.

My options so far that I can think of are:

Do a complete OS reinstall (can I use my dell cdkey to reinstall vista?)

Send it in to get fixed, if that's the case, what kind of fixing will they do?

Dell :: Hybrid SLI Options

Sep 13, 2009

I'm currently running 190.40 drivers for my GeForce 9500M on my SXPS13. Before updating to 190.40, clicking the little green NVIDIA tray icon that shows what mode you're running in allowed me to choose my mode manually through the use of two radio buttons.

Currently, I can only switch between "Boost Performance" and "Save Power" by switching power profiles in Windows. Is there some way I can get back those radio buttons without having to go back to the older driver?

Dell :: Studio 15 Screen Options

Oct 21, 2008

I am stuck debating between the 15.4 WLED (1440*900) and the 15.4 non-LED (1920*1200). I am just not sure which I would prefer. If the WLED came in a 1920*1200 option I don't think I would be so concerned.

I really like the size, weight, and potential power savings of the WLED screens but I am used to working on larger monitors (22 and 25 inch) running at higher resolutions.

What does everyone think about these two choices? Will I be happy with the WLED at the smaller resolution or is it better to opt for the traditional screen with the higher resolution?

Just so everyone knows the laptop won't be my primary computer but will get a lot of use while working on graduate work away from home, writing website code, and general use. The only gaming activity it might see is some occasional WoW.

Dell :: Studio 15 Display Options

Feb 3, 2009

I'm not interested in a large resolution (I guess that 1280x800 is enough in a 15" screen) but it seems that the display with this resolution has a smaller view angle (especially vertical) than the 1400x900 display that maybe is not very good if you spend some time reading documents.

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 :: E6500 Screen Options

May 12, 2009

I was wondering about the E6500 screen options. The options shown for LED screens are:

15.4in Wide Screen WXGA+ (1440x900) with LED backlit
15.4in Wide Screen WXGA (1280x800) LED

I need a LED screen because the laptop will be used to outside in direct sunlight alot. Brightness is very important. Resolution however is not. After talking to Dell on the phone they told me the LED backlit is much brighter then the standard LED option. However, I am wondering if this claim is true and that their not just trying to make me get a 100 euro option I don't need
