Dell :: Studio 17 Water Spill Estimated Costs And Return Time?

Apr 11, 2009

last night I spilled some water ( ) on my recently bought dell studio 17 laptop. It was mostly over the mouse finger pad and a little over the space bar.

It was turned on and plugged into the wall. The screen froze an nothing worked. I unplugged it from the wall and unplugged the battery and tried to tip the water out.

I left it in a tilted position overnight. It still wont turn on but when the battery goes on the white light on the side turns on.

Anyways I just wanted to get some advice on what to do. I called the Dell tech support but they were closed. If i send it in how long does that usually take and how much should i expect to pay for this type of problem?

Dell :: Inspiron 1525 Water Spill

Jan 12, 2009

Dell Inspiron 15.4 inch i1525-119B laptop computer. It worked fine since it was new (not used much), but suffered spill damage (small amount of water spilled on the keyboard) and now will not power on. The keys do not stick, and function fine. The DVD drive pops open when I push it, like normal.

A few indicator lights will come on when I hit the power button, and the fan turns on, but that's as far as it goes. It has another 3 months left on the warranty but spill damage is not covered and I assume they will know what happened if i send it in for repair

Dell Alienware M14XR2 :: System Time Keeps Resetting When Power On Or Return From Standby

Mar 26, 2013

I've never seen this before. recently (and I mean within the last few days) my laptop has picked up this strange quirk that it resets its system time to 10/10/10 10:10am. I've done a full virus scan (microsoft security essentials) and turned up nothing - a clean system. Windows 7, not that much crap on it, mostly games. Fully updated. 

Anyway, part of me is thinking cmos battery, but the paranoid side is reformatting and reinstalling anyway, as much as I hate to do it again. My question is, is this the default time the bios will reset to in the event of a bad cmos battery? Or have I maybe picked something up I haven't detected.

At any rate I've had this machine for less than a year, I find it highly unusual that the cmos battery would die so quickly. I have ancient desktops that are still ticking.

Dell :: Should I Return My Studio 1745 (C2D T9600) For The Studio 17 With I7 CPU?

Dec 25, 2009

Right around black friday I ordered a Dell studio with the following specs listed below. It was $1778 with $649 off making an OTD price of $1212 shipped.

I see the I7 is out & I dont believe that was an option for the laptop either. There was also the 20% bing cashback deal which removes another 220 from the price (I dont quite get the math myself but hey).

I am looking at a Studio I7 with the same price but a 3rd year warranty vs my 2nd .....

Dell :: Studio Return ?

Apr 30, 2009

I have posted this before, but I am getting really tired of Dell's customer service (after 2 non working units!) and this one was my screw up

The Studio 17 is too bulky and heavy; I wouldnt mind getting a 15 with the same specs or even an inspiron or Vostro-

There are several good deals with Vostros- are there any advantages to the Vostro line?

So How would I go about getting Dell to accept a return of the studio w/o a restocking fee---

Could I just tell them that the bottom and top of the computer get exceedingly hot and the machine randomly turns on and off?

Dell :: Studio 17, 21 Day Return, And HP

Mar 14, 2009

I have been using my new studio 17 for the last three days had several questions that I would appreciate input on. First my MO: Most of my laptop computing is word processing, net surfing, picture stuff, occasional spreadsheet, occasional movie, no gaming. Most of my laptop use is sitting up in bed with the machine on my lap, balanced on my right leg, or set down on the bed to my right side, or sitting in the recliner with the unit on my lap, or on the back deck with unit on my lap. Only travel with the laptop 1-3 times per year (car travel).

I'm coming from a 2001 dell latitude 14" machine which has been stone cold reliable but of course severely outdated. I'm old and not concerned with the style or look of a computer, I have old eyes and need easy to read screens and font sizes. I tend to buy more computer than I need initially and keep it for many years past when people would normally upgrade. I tend to be more concerned with ergonomics, user friendliness, and robustness of design than I am with processor speed, video cards, memory etc. The one exception here is I really like/need a bright clear display.

My studio 17 is configured with the T6400, 4gb ram, backlite keyboard, wled 1440x900 display, ATI HD 3650 etc.

Initial impressions
Good: It is of course much faster than my 2001 dell, especially on boot up and shut down. The clarity and brightness of the display is a beautiful thing and the viewing angles are good as well. I pulled up an instant movie from netflix and it is very impressive, although the movie didn't play fullscreen as there was about an inch of unused screen on either side of the movie. The backlite keyboard is nice.

Uncertain:
- Maybe it is my imagination but the keyboard on this thing seems squishy. Almost like it is uneven and set too low in the chassis. The keys have very little tactile feedback. A number of times now I've been flying along wordprocessing and find that even though I pressed the key the entry was never made.

- There is quite a bit of flex in the screen it seems. I learned real quick to make sure to grasp the screen right in the middle when closing/opening the lid. It's a bit disconcerting to see the dell symbol on the back of the lid distort when the screen flexes as you close the lid if you don't grasp it right in the middle.

- There are no standoffs at the top of the screen to keep it from contacting the palm rests when the lid is closed. Picking the machine up with one hand in the center front as I normally do results in the lid flexing and touching the palm rest in the camera/mic area at the top of the display.

- While there is a boatload of screen real estate, the icons/text are small which is not good at all. Can these be increased in size without loosing any clarity? I need all aspects of the display - icons, text, menus, etc bumped up in size a bit.

- While I like the 17" screen, and I thought the number pad would be nice to have, I really dislike that the it causes the alpha keyboard and corresponding touch pad to be offset to the left of the chassis. The touch pad obviously has to be centered relative to the alpha keyboard for proper word processing and data entry. This is not that big of an issue when the machine is used on the desk but it causes an imbalance when used on the lap. In order to use the machine with keyboard/touchpad centered the whole machine has to be shifted to the right which causes the right side to tip over to the right. In short it makes it very awkward to use this machine on anything other than a desk. In addition, I think compounding this lap unfriendly nature is the whole gigantic hinge design and how deep this laptop is.

I fully understand that this machine is marketed as a "desktop replacement" and maybe I would be better served with a 15" model. What would be really nice though is to have the 17" screen, lose the number pad, and center the alpha keyboard and touchpad in the center of the chassis. This would make laptop computer more user friendly.

Dell :: The XT2 Costs $5K

Oct 24, 2009

On another thread, I was using the XT2 as an example. A user mention, "the Dell XT2, isn't that a $5000 laptop??"

My response was "Yeah...... Wait ...... What???"

The user posts this link:

http://www1.ap.dell.com/content/prod...=bsd&cs=nzbsd1

I click through and see, sure enough, it's $5K. Then I scroll the list on the right of everything that is included. I saw the Media dock and thought, "OK, that's isn't worth $2K. What else could it possibly be.

Dell :: Advice Needed On Whether To Return Studio XPS 1640

May 28, 2009

I recently took advantage of a 20% off coupon for computers from the Dell Outlet.

I ordered a Studio XPS 1640 that included a 128GB solid state hard drive.

Shortly after the computer arrived I started having weird problems. At first I thought it was because I had installed the Windows 7 RC, but eventually I tried re-installing Vista and the same problems were happening (in other words, I spent a lot of time on this). I began to suspect a hard drive problem.

Finally, I called Dell support and while I was on the phone (for over an hour) the hard drive failed. OK...that was Monday and she sent me a replacement hard drive that arrived yesterday.

I installed the new hard drive and the first thing I did was go into the BIOS and it recognized the hard drive, so all was good so far. Next I went into the diagnostic and it came up with a hard drive error. I called Dell and after trying some diagnostics and re-seating the hard drive it was clear that the hard drive wasn't working - it was no longer even showing up in the BIOS .....

Dell :: Spill Damage

Dec 28, 2009

So, basically I was being a clumsy idiot and I spilled some chicken noodle soup broth on my precious inspiron 1520 while I was using it.

Before I managed to shut it off, it started playing audio through the speakers as opposed to the headphones I had plugged in, but otherwise it was still running when I powered it down.

I took out the battery, unplugged everything, and held it upside down and let the liquid all drain out.

After it was done draining I let it sit for about an hour and then completely disassembled it, removed the heatsinks, fan, drives, cards, etc...

and except for the area where the media buttons were, almost everything was dry, even the things directly below the keyboard, the area around the audio jack, and in the area the liquid drained from .....

Dell :: Spill Repairs

Aug 9, 2007

I just spilled a large pepsi all over my 9300 and called tech support and they are having me send the laptop to the depot and then said I should get it back in 5-8 business days. Do they even have the parts laying around to fix my laptop? The thing won't even power up anymore. The tech had me remove the hard drive from the laptop and even it was still a little damp! That means that even if they do fix the laptop and I get it back in say 2 weeks, if the hard drive doesn't work when I reinsert it I have to wait another several days for a replacement hard drive!

Dell :: How Accurate Are The Estimated Delivery Dates?

Apr 11, 2010

My Dell Studio XPS 16 (core i7 model) was ordered april 6th. The estimated delivery date was originally 4/22/10 but yesterday I logged on to see my status and it said that my laptop was "In Production" and that the NEW estimated date of delivery is 4/14/10....that means they changed my EDD to 8 days before the ORIGINAL date. Well, the 14th is in 3 days...and my laptop is still "in production" so did dell make an error on the site? If not, does that mean that it only takes 2 or 3 days for things to get delivered?

Dell :: Estimated Ship Date Vs Actual

Nov 13, 2008

Has anyone encountered abnormally long ship dates for recently ordered laptops?

I ordered a Studio 15 / Mini 9 combo about a week ago and the ESD for the Mini 9 is next week, and the ESD for the Studio 15 is early December. In the past I've gotten my custom-ordered laptops within a week of ordering.

I also noticed that the Purchase ID info does not show billing or shipping info, although I did receive email confirmation with that info.

What's going on? Will I receive lemons because Dell is making everyone take unpaid leave?

Dell :: CPU Is At 50% All The Time, Studio 15

Feb 22, 2009

1.
I got my laptop back in august of 2008. Everything has been good up until a few weeks ago. From the moment I turn my computer on the CPU sit at 50% usage. I have no idea what is causing this. I can restart the laptop and as soon as vista boots up the cpu is sitting at 50% usage. According to the task manger windows explorer (explorer.exe) is using the cpu the most.
This is while at idle.

What could cause this? I thought maybe firefox was causing the problem so I uninstalled it but that only worked for about a day

2.
On a side note, my laptop will not stay in standby. I close the lid it goes into standby and then a few min later comes back on. When it comes back on the fan is also running nonstop. Sometimes after it comes back from standby the mute and volume up buttons will be blinking. the buttons still work but they blink. I have already checked the power setting and they are not preventing standby

Acer :: Aspire 5920 Making Strange Noises After Spill

Mar 22, 2009

A few weeks ago I spilled green tea (no milk or sugar) on the desk around my Acer Aspire 5920 laptop. The tea went into the back left quarter of the machine, mainly through the ventilation holes and the ports on the left side. I removed the battery, drained the liquid, and let the machine dry out thoroughly. Since then the machine has worked fine. However, it occasionally makes strange noises, especially on start up. It's a fizzing/popping noise, in short bursts, like static. It sounds as if it's coming from the loudspeaker.

does anyone know the machine well enough to diagnose the fault? Only the components in the back left quarter of the machine got wet. Could there still be water in there? Is the noise a sign of a serious problem? What can I do to fix it? As I said, the spill happened several weeks ago, and, apart from the noise, the machine works fine.

Dell :: Is The Studio XPS 1647 Due For A Refresh Any Time Soon?

Apr 5, 2010

Im thinking about picking up this bad boy but I dont want to get caught like I did with my Inspiron 1520 when I bought it 3 years ago (I bought it and then 3 days later they bought out the 1525 which was 20% lighter etc).

Also i've heard lots of things regarding XPS machines running very hot, is it very bad? Or is it one of those things that are just blown out of proportion?

Dell :: Studio 1537 Delivery Time

Mar 30, 2009

Ordered a Dell Studio 1537 on Thursday 26th March. Estimated delivery time is 14th April. To be honest with you. I think that is a bit of a long wait. Not very happy. On the other hand the payment cleared and it also went through pre-production within a day. It has been in production(phase 3) for 3 days now.

Other than that....

What do you guys think of it. Good laptop? My main specs are Intel Pentium Dual-Core Processor T4200 (2.0GHz, 800MHz, 1MB cache), 2GB RAM, 256MB ATI Mobility RADEON HD 3450, 160 GB HDD.

Dell Studio 1555 :: Event 6008 - Computer Shutdown At X Time Unexpectedly

Mar 16, 2013

I have a 4 year old Dell which I have had cleaned and maintained by Dell services in order to keep temperatures and hardware in check.

However, I am constantly experiencing an "Event" according to Event viewer, or "Event 6008". What it says is "Computer shutdown at X time unexpectedly."

I have monitored temperatures, have all latest drivers for all components, yet I continually get the same crash. The computer goes completely off, no bluescreen, no error. I used "Who Crashed" in an attempt to record a dump file, but it keeps coming empty.

The error/crash occurs only during games, some more frequent than others. I have tried all possible options for those games, low to high settings/resolutions/etc, no background programs running - no difference. 

Some days, the error/crash occurs more rarely when unplugged and running on battery(which don't last more than an hour), and once I plug it in to charge it, it starts crashing in a few minutes.

It is also running Windows 7 64-bit, upgraded from the stock Vista(where the error/crash also kept occuring).

The laptop is a Dell Studio 1555(the widescreen version). I took it to one of Dell's shop for them to "fix it", tho after running all their stress tests they told me there is nothing wrong with the computer. So 7 completely different games crash the computer, but Dell's stress tests fail to identify what is wrong with it?
