I cracked my screen a while ago, and ordered a new part off some dinky little website. I was aware that the resolution would be 1366x768 instead of 1600x900 on this new screen, but I was unable to find the exact part I broke. Now, many months later, I decided to search again. I found this page.
Would anyone be kind enough as to look over those, and let me know which screen would be the 'best' one to get, whatever that might mean. I notice they are all the same price, but have different specs in the names. I am more of a software guy, and rely on others help for hardware advice.
I hav a 3 months old Studio 1555. T6400 4GB RAM 320 HDD 256 MB ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4570 1366 x 768 LED screen.
When I had bought this laptop, 720p was the only screen available in my country but now they are providing 1080p too. Dell has agreed to upgrade screen from 720p to 1080p.
Ironically the remote diagnostics technical guy himself was only 99% sure of success, not 100%.
When the screen was changed last week, the newer screen looked too white and faded, right from the system boot up. When Vista loaded, it first showed the older 1366 x 768 resolution then automatically adjusted to the native resolution 1920 x 1080.
however the screen looked same i.e. very white, faded, not so clear and colors almost washed out. Screen was checked twice but showed same result So i had to keep the original 720p only. Technician thought that the screen was faulty so sent it back .....
If you're like me, and you bought your Studio 1535, 1536, or 1537 with the standard keyboard and now wish you had the backlit model,
it's an excellent time to buy the keyboard on your own and install it yourself. It's an extremely simple process, involving no more than 4 Philips head screws, three ribbon cables, and ten minutes of your life.
Resaleremarking.net, an excellent parts retailer for Dell notebooks, has the backlit keyboard available for $37.95, which is an excellent price, especially considering it's Grade A, which is brand new. For reference, I bought mine for $50 just a couple months ago.
The part is now cheaper than ever, so what do you have to lose? Replacing the keyboard does not void your warranty with Dell, and is one of the easiest hardware replacements you can make on this laptop.
I just bought a Studio 1749 with a Dutch US international keyboard. The US backlit keyboard is the only backlit one and not an option here. The only difference is the missing Ä symbol at key number 5, for which I don't care so much.
Now I'm trying to find the US backlit keyboard at eBay or Amazon without success. Is there a way to find one aftermarket and get it shipped to Europe?
unfortunately I made a mistake in my order and I bought a T440s without backlight. if there is a possibility to let to T440s officially upgrade by Lenovo to a backlighted version? or can I only buy a backlighted Keyboard and I have to install it on myself?
Studio 1555 should redesign its keyboard into this
Designed by edwineyong
Include the following
*Device status lights (Wifi, Bluetooth, Hard drive) *Numpad *Display and keyboard backlit brightness function key back to arrow section *Sleep button *Stop button *Numlock button
I am very dissapointed when I see the Studio 1555's keyboard does not include Numpad, Sleep Stop Numlock buttons, Device status lights. It is not easy to press F1-F12 as it require user to hold fn key first.
I use F1-F12 frequent than the External display, Wireless switch, battery and the Display and keyboard backlit brightness keys, so I really don't like the F1-F12 in Studio 1555.
And the Display and keyboard backlit brightness keys are wasting 3 spaces for Sleep, Stop and Numlock buttons.
I'm trying to remove a keyboard from a Studio 1555. Iím at the part where it says, "Disconnect the keyboard cable from the keyboard connector on the system board by rotating the keyboard connector latch towards the front of the computer.
I see the white connector on the cable and I see the black connector on the system board, but for the life of me I donít see any latch.
Could someone who has experience with this give me an idea of what I should be looking for? The picture in the online service manual is less than enlightening
I just chatted with tech support regarding a flicker issue with my dell 1555. He said that he will replace the laptop, though i was asking for an LCD replacement.
Anyways to make it short, the biggest problem is that i am relocating and moving to another city in USA next saturday morning. So i was asking if it can be done later, for which he said dont worry it takes 3-5 days for the replacement to arrive so you are safe.
I am just wondering, how does replacement of system work ? 1. Do they send a box will all the software too again !!! I mean vista disk etc ? or do they just send the system. 2. How will they have by custom configuration at hand ? wouldnt it have to go to china again and yes that will make it further delayed ..
I got a Dell Studio 1737 through the Dell Outlet, and after a little while the Num Lock light stopped working. The button still turns it on and off, and I've been debating calling and having to deal with them to get a replacement. Another option I've been thinking about is replacing it outright with the backlit keyboard.
My question is this. What will doing this outside of Dell do to the warranty? The Caps Lock light does still come on, so I'm thinking it's an issue with the light, and if I have to replace it, I might as well go with the better one.
does anyone know if you can change the colors of the keyboard light like you can on alienware laptops? ive been wondering this since ive only seen the backlit keyboard in white, and i was hoping to maybe switch the color to that of my lappy? i think that would be awsome to see on a studio.
I am trying to find out if there is a replacement lighted keyboard for a dell inspiron e1705 or a mod that i could do. I am not interested in the the usb lights that everyone seems to buy for there laptops I want it stationary.
I recently bought an M4400 from the Dell Outlet. Unfortunately, the one that had everything else I wanted didn't have the backlit keyboard.
From looking at the service manual, it looks like a keyboard swap is pretty easy, but I can't find anywhere (including Dell Parts) to buy the actual keyboard (whose part numbers appear to be either G077C or 330-0825, depending on where you look).
i have dell studio 17 nb1735 in the quickset it has the option for backlit keyboard and its all turned on but no backlit lights come on at all how do i know if i actually have this on my laptop or if it simply is not working?
