Dell :: Studio 1745 Eject Button Not Working

Jan 1, 2010

1. Eject Button - I can't get either the eject button (near F12 key), or the touch eject button (that lights up) to eject any CD's. I have to go into My Computer, and right click ...and then eject it that way. Anyone know of a way to get the eject buttons to work? Should be able to use one of the eject buttons.

Note: I did try the holding the power button if for 30 seconds, and then rebooted. This didn't work for me.

2. Brightness - what FN + ? key adjusts the brightness of the screen? When the AC cord is plugged in, it's bright. When I disconnect it, it dims. I'd like to adjust the brightness to where the screen is the same brightness when it's on either AC or Battery.

Acer :: How To Enable Bluetooth On D150 Without External Bluetooth Button Under LED

Aug 12, 2009

I have finally tested the Acer Empowering Technology software on my Acer D150.

Great news, the software works to enable/disable the Bluetooth module on the netbook without physically pressing the button. This is great for people like me that do not have the button on top to push the button inside. There are two software needed for people to get this running on the D150. First is the required ďAcer Empowering FrameworkĒ software and the second is the ďAcer ePower Management.Ē Once both software are installed on the system, the setting to enable/disable the Bluetooth module is in the ePower Management.

Power profiles within windows will probably be reset to default, so those would have to be readjusted if a user changed them. I am actually running Windows Vista on my Acer D150 with the Acer Empowering Technology software for Vista. I am not 100% sure if the software will also work on XP, but from the notebookreview forums, I believe it should work just as fine (but more options on other Empowering Technology software).

(in XP, the driver also works, but need XP edition, not vista editon).

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 1745 Fan Issue

Jan 11, 2010

On the new Dell studio 1745, fan goes on and off like an hair dryer:


The fan is completely stopped and kicks on like an hair dryer for about 10s.
This happens from 1 time every 2 minutes to 3 times per minute and occurs whith an idle processor (< 10%). This is very unusual and disturbing.

On a regular laptop, as I usually see, the fan should spin all the time silently at low speed according to low processor activity and should speed up by steps, according to the processor heavy load.

Some other users on French and German forums also noticed this issue.

Dell changed my motherboard as well as the fan but it didn't solve the problem. I guess it is due to a bad bios...?

- Did you also noticed this problem on your Dell studio laptop?
- How does it work with yours?
- any information?

Lenovo T400 / T500 :: Internet Loss And Limited Functionality After Windows 7 Clean Install On T410

Aug 30, 2013

I had an extra Lenovo T410 sitting around so I wanted to restore it to its "factory state" by performing a "format boot". Plan was to boot from CD drive and reinstall Windows 7 (32 bit) during the process. However, disaster, after the process finished I am now stuck in some sort of safe mode (everything is larger than usual) and the computer is missing several drivers. I installed the network adapter driver manually (can identify networks but can't connect to internet). Device manager still lists Base System Device, Ethernet Controller, PCI Serial Port, PCI Simple Communications Controller, and Unknown Device drivers to be out of date.
My objectives here are to
1) restore connectivity to internet and
2) get Windows 7 Home Premium to full functionality.

Dell :: Windows XP Drivers For Studio 1745

Feb 5, 2010

These drivers are intended for the Studio 1745. The intended use is for a fresh installation of XP_Pro_SP3 32bit. All files are Zipped, and safe. (But always scan any files you download with a good Virus Scan program such as BitDefender, Kaspersky, and Norton)

The links should allow you to just download them without any aggravation. If you notice anything wrong with links or files, please let me know. I don't mind correcting mistakes. After all, that's when you learn.

These files and links could be updated, and replaced accordingly to updates I come across. When reinstalling XP, I recommend installing the below drivers & software in the order of the listing....

Dell Studio 1558 :: Install Of Windows 8.1 Does Not Show Bluetooth But It Works

Jan 13, 2015

I have a Studio 1558 laptop, originally with Windows 7 which I upgraded to Windows 8.1 Pro.  I have just installed a larger HD (1TB) to replace the 500GB which I thought might have been on its way out as it occasionally started clicking.  I have also taken the opportunity for a clean install of Windows 8.1 Pro.  But the Device Manager does not show any Bluetooth devices even though the Bluetooth mouse works!  However I cannot find any links in Devices & Printers to allow me to change the mouse wheel action or the Synaptics touch pad action.  

Going back to the 500GB HD gives me all this functionality so the hardware is all ok.  The BIOS settings still have Bluetooth enabled.  I have updated Windows updates, and used Slimdrivers to update all the drivers.

Dell :: Got A New Studio 1745, Dissapointing Skin Colors On Screen

Nov 5, 2009

My old notebook keyboard died, and despite my apprehensions about buy a notebook with a glossy screen, I recently purchased the most recent upgrade of the Dell Studio - a 1745 (according to the number on the bottom of the laptop) from Best Buy for about $800.

While I was worried about the glossy part, it turns out there's another, much larger problem - I intended to use it to edit photos (I'm not professional, just like to play around with them sometimes) and I've found the colors, despite being a "truelife" display (I got the "900p" one, 1600x900) to be kind of crappy when it comes to viewing skin tones. They're just sort of...flattened. My pictures that look good on my regular lcd (21.3" Samsung SyncMaster 213t) and my hd tv look weird and unnatural on my studio laptop. The pictures that look borderline-ok on my other monitors look terrible on my laptop because the skin tones are all messed up.

And I don't mean that like "I'm super picky about skin tones", I mean more like "anyone looking at the picture on the laptop lcd would notice it looks noticeably weird".

Naturally, there are a picture or 2 that actually looks better on the laptop screen - in one of them, there's a yellowish cast in the background when viewed on the camera lcd and my tv (it's also a common issue with pictures taken with my camera), but it's not there on the laptop screen. Unfortunately, since I need to be able to adjust the white balance on my laptop to look good on your average monitor, this is kind of a problem for me.

I really hate to wait a month for a new computer, but I was thinking that maybe the "17.3Ē Full HD (1080p) B+RG LED Display with TrueLifeô and Camera" would be better with colors? Or is there something wrong with my particular screen? The Studio with the same specs costs $1,139 online (as opposed to the $780 I paid at Best Buy) so it's a lot more money, but I could probably do it. I considered ordering a refurbished Precision m6400, but some of the reviews of the screen seemed kind of down (especially for such an expensive computer), plus it sounded like it's pretty huge to lug around.

Dell Studio 1745 :: Boot Screen Flickers On And Off Slowly

Apr 2, 2013

I have a Dell Studio 1745 and there is an issue with the magnetic switch. The issue seems to be that the switch itself can't seem to make its mind up whether it has been activated or not. On boot the screen flickers on and off slowly, placing a magnet near the track pad (where the switch is located) increases the rate of the flickering, however it does not solve the problem. Looking inside the laptop the switch seems to be a soldered chip, is there any way to solve this completely? I've connected it to an external monitor, however the picture will only stay on the screen with the magnet in place, removing the magnet causes the picture to come away from the monitor and back to flickering on the laptop.

Dell :: Warning. Noisy Fan Due To Bad Control. Studio 1745/47/49 And Inspiron 1564

Mar 7, 2010

studio 17 fan problems

2nd description:

I've tried to collect all the info I can. Please add as you seem fit.

Recently returned a dell 1745 due to bad fan control. While idling the fan would rew up to max each 3-5 minutes easily detectable by speedfan (see the last link). The core temperatures would slowly ("") increase to around 38 degrees when the fan starts at horrendous pace for ~10-15 seconds and cool the cores to sub-30 degrees and the whole show starts again. This is a showstopper and noone should really by these products.

It is as though the cpu fan only has two paces. Silent and Noisy. There shoudl of course be some kind of gradient in the fan speeds at different temepratures but his has not been implemented though very easy for BIOS coders to do so. The fan vigorously tries to cool the cpu to 30 degrees each time it hits ~40 degress - we're talking intel cpus that could easily go to 60-70 degrees without fuzz.

While idling any laptop should keep a constant temperature - the current lineup of inspirons and studios (at least 1564, 1745, 1747 an 1749) cannot achieve this and unleashes fan hell very often.

Untill fixed (which dell seems very reluctant to) don't buy dell. It's simply not worth it.

This have nothing to do with throtteling. And don't even get me started on doing something "cpu intensive" like browing.

Dell :: Studio 1745, 1747, 1749 Backlit Keyboard Aftermarket?

Apr 20, 2010

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?
