Dell :: Damaged Studio XPS 16 Audio Jack Sockets

Jul 22, 2009

I have studio xps 16

last week, audio jacks stopped working

and I couldn't hear anything neither from headphones nor integrated speakers

so as a quick solution, I disassembled the laptop and soldered 3 wires over the jacks to make integrated speakers/mic work

Now I can hear sound but of course still can't plug external speakers, headphones or mics .....

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 :: Have I Damaged My Card

Aug 27, 2007

I have a Dell Inspiron 9400 with a rev0 7900gs Go, and I recently flashed it with the 7900GTX bios (790GTXUN.ROM) and followed the info given on post 1 here: [url]

The clocks for this BIOS were set at 500/600 by default, but I went ahead and clocked them up to 530/630, then eventually up to 575/700. I am running ATi Tool 0.27b2 and ran the artifact test, it ran for about 10 minutes and then some artifacts started to show at about 93c. As soon as they started coming up, I canceled the artifact test then rebooted, and re flashed back to the original 7900GS BIOS. I have been playing WoW for the last 30mins and it has been running fine but I am worried that I may have damaged my card, would anyone please be able to tell me what you think or what could have caused the artifacting?

Dell :: Water On My Keyboard

Jan 24, 2009

I knew it was going to happen sooner or later, and it did. I spilled a little water on my keyboard tonight. I dried it up fast enough or so I thought . When I type the letter q or z it comes up qa and za. the a pops up automatically after typing those letters. I finally got to the keyboard unscrewed it and noticed a little bit more water underneath. It wasn't a lot but enough to notice.

Am I screwed here or will this dry enough to get back to normal? When it first happened all my words were jumbled, but now it is just those 2 letters. Funny now my Caps lock is going on by itself

Should I just shut down for the night and keep the keyboard disassembled so it could dry?

Dell :: Windows 7 Damaged My Inspiron 1520?

Sep 18, 2009

I recently did a clean install of Windows 7 RC over Vista on my inspiron 1520. Windows 7 appeared to automatically install the correct drivers for everything

except the graphics card, as everything else appeared to be working properly (e.g. wireless, scrollpad, etc.) After manually downloading and installing the NVidia driver, the aero stuff started to work.

However shortly afterwards, I noticed that the left side of my screen seemed slightly dimmer than the rest of the screen. The problem gets even worse, as the backlight would suddenly turn off after shorter and shorter periods.

I thought maybe the windows 7 drivers were incompatible with my the laptop, so I uninstalled windows 7 and installed Vista back along with the original drivers, but that didn't fix the problem .....

Dell :: D600 Hard Drive Damaged

Sep 14, 2009

I have a Dell Latitude D600 that came with a 60gb hard drive. I had a D600 previous to this one with a 40gb hard drive and I swapped this hard drive into the newer D600 since I had all my important data stored on it already.

Just the other day when I was performing some maintenance on the D600,

I accidentally dropped the 40gb on the floor when it was out of the computer. I thought everything was fine because it seemed to boot up when

I re-installed it, but I hadn't actually tried using it until today

Dell :: Water Cooling M6400

Mar 29, 2009

I like my M6400. Except that I am sick of the noise the fans make.

My M6300 runs at hotter temperatures without the fans almost ever kicking in for light applications. As a result it is a pleasant quite piece of kit to work with.

The M6400 is loud and annoying in the continuous on-off cycles. Notebook coolers with fans do not work well in my experience .....

Dell :: I Spilled Water On My Laptop

Dec 15, 2008

Wouldn't you know it, I have been clumsy as can be today; I spilled three drinks. The first two were no real big deal, but the last one was right on the top of my 1420! Before I could do anything, it shut down and I don't know if it was in my mind or what, but I thought I could hear faint sizzling. Now I'm waiting for it to dry only so I can confirm I am hosed. Looks like I am stuck with a minimum of $200 for a new motherboard provided I haven't fried anything else. What a crappy end to a day...

I'm switching to sippy cups!

Dell :: E6400 Water Damage

Feb 27, 2009

I've managed to spill half a glass of water onto my E6400. I unplugged it and straight away and waited 24 hours.

The laptop now doesn't boot: the BIOS runs and the hard drive gets accessed and then it powers down.

Is it going to be obvious to the engineer that all of this was caused by water?

Dell :: Inspiron 1525 With Water Damage

Feb 10, 2009

i've been given a Dell Inspiron 1525 with water damage to repair.

it doesn't look like a lot of water has gone into it, there's some marks on the metal parts of the internal frame and a little bit of rust marks on the top of the dvd writer drive. There was some corrosion/rust on a couple of the chips which i have cleaned and scrubbed off.

When it's plugged in, the blue battery led comes on, when left on both the power light and the battery light come on aswell as the light under the power button, But it doesn't boot and the fan doesn't start.

at one point the fan did spin but only for about 3-4 seconds and went back off.

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 :: Spilled Water On My E1705- Keyboard

Sep 14, 2007

I accidentally spilled some water on my laptop this evening. i dried everything out and everything seems to be working fine..except for that my left "Ctrl" key is acting really weird. Something is making it seem like it's being constantly held down (although it physically isn't). The only way I can disable this is through the On-Screen Keyboard in Windows XP. But after hitting the particular Ctrl key, it goes back to being held down again. Is there anything I can do to fix this? Or is this something that wouldn't cost too much to repair?

Dell :: E1705 Replacement For Water Damage

Aug 19, 2009

Hi this is my first post and I just had a question about a replacement for my e1705 through complete care. I left my laptop outside and it poured and I completely forgot about it.

I haven't talked to dell yet but I'll definitely be covered if I have complete care correct? Also I've been reading that sometimes you don't get the same laptop back and you get a replacement.

What are the chances that I'd get another e1705 since I have accessories for it already that I like (bluetooth adapter that I'm hoping isn't ruined and an extra battery) or would I get a newer laptop since the e1705 has been discontinued? Also how long am I going to be without a laptop? I did a search but I wanted some answers for my specific case.

Was searching for the water on my desk last night and completely knocked it over on my inspiron 1520 (was still on). I immediately disconnected all the power and air dried it with a fan. Now it won't boot when I turn it on and I noticed that the fan doesn't turn on either.

The lines are separated exactly equal and the color changes when images are moved. They are not of a certain color, perhaps a bit brown .....

HP/Compaq :: HP Damaged My Laptop And Won't Fix It

Apr 4, 2009

I sent my 8510p laptop in to HP to fix a video problem and they replaced the video board, sent it back to me. When I got it back it was very clear that there was still a problem, the video signal intermittently clouded up like there was a disconnect in the cable - I figured the tech didn't press the connector cable firmly into place. I sent it back for the 2nd time.

I got the laptop back and all my video problems were fixed; however, there was now a 2 to 3 inch long crack around one of the screws on the bottom of the case - like someone took a chisel or a screwdriver to pry up at the case. I told customer service and they sent a box for me to pack it up and send it back. This is the 3rd week in a row without my computer at home - it's starting to cause major problems because I need my computer to study.

I get a call back this last Friday from billing at HP telling me they aren't going to fix the case unless I pay them $200 even though it's very clear that the crack was caused by an incompetent tech trying to get into the unit. There was no damage to the shipping box and this kind of crack simply could not have happened during shipping - HP also tells me that because I got it late Thursday and didn't report it til Sunday morning, that I can't be covered for shipping damage (even though there was no shipping damage). They want $89 to send it back to me unfixed too.

I told them I wouldn't pay them anything for damage they caused - I left a message on the voicemail of the billing department supervisor...............

HP/Compaq :: Ribbon Cable Damaged- Dv9000

Jan 28, 2010

I have a dv9000 series and the the ribbon cable that goes from the power button to it's respective conector on the motherboard is a bit damaged one of the metal contacts at one end has "skinned" off.

What would you do, look for a replacement online, i doubt a shop would stoc such a thing, of do these cables tend to be standard, the model number of the cable is E118077.

Also you should be able to completely remove a motherboard, including detaching it from the screen and still power the fan on, obvioulsy with the battery connected?

It's this cable, [url]
could you somewow slice the end off and then cut a small section so you have some new contacts showing?
