Dell :: Studio Laptop Warranty

Feb 25, 2010

Does anyone know off hand if opening up my laptop would affect my warranty? I am taking a ComTIA A+ course, and I wanted to open the case to my Dell Laptop in class, but my instructor wasn't sure if I should because he said the warranty may not be any good if I open it.

Dell :: What Warranty For Studio 16 XPS

Mar 10, 2010

my question is, what's the best value with these warranties? I know I should probably be protected, but should I assume that after 1 year I'd be in the clear anyway? Also, I think the 1645 doesn't come with 2 year warranties (for some reason) so those would be out of the question.

Dell :: Studio 15 Warranty

Jun 23, 2009

I'm going off to university for the next 3 years and I'm probably going to get the studio 15.

It only comes with a 1 year warranty and I was wondering if it's reliable enough to stick with that or if I should get an extended warranty on it.

I'm pretty tight for money right now, so I'd like to save the money.

Dell :: Warranty Clarification On Studio XPS 13 And 16

Apr 15, 2009

This could well be more conniving bull but a Dell Sales rep told me that the standard 1 year warranty is collect and return??? I have never heard of it to be "collect and return" as far as I know it's always been on site repair or replace..

Dell :: Studio 1555 Warranty

May 14, 2009

I have a Dell Studio 1555.

I will be performing the following hardware upgrades in the system:

1. HDD 320 GB 5400 rpm -> HDD 320 GB 7200 rpm

2. Intel Wifi 5100 card -> Intel Wifi 5300 card

Now my question is since I will be doing these upgrades myself, will doing this void my warranty in any way. I have 1 Yr Ltd Hardware Warranty, InHome Service after Remote Diagnosis.

Also, if tomorrow I have 2 send the lappy 2 the Dell Service Centre for any reason and they find out that I have upgraded the machine, then will it have any effect on my warranty?

Dell :: Studio 1535 Warranty

Mar 28, 2009

I am having MAJOR issues with my Studio 1535 and I could use some input!

About two months ago, the fan kicked on at HIGH speed as soon as I pressed the power button to boot up. It continued to run on HIGH indefinitely, unless I lifted one of the rear corners a bit off the desk. Then the fan would stop instantly until I lowered the edge back down to the desk surface.

I've spoken with a few other 1535 owners who've had the same issue. Motherboard flex seems to be the culprit and it (the system/mother board) needs to be replaced.

I sent it in for warranty repair the first time with a detailed explanation of the problem. I also detailed a problem I was having with the keyboard that needed to be fixed. They replaced the keyboard and didn't address the fan issue. Immediately out of the box, I powered it up and the fan instantly kicked on HIGH, too.

I sent it back a second time with a detailed explanation again (after a long chat with tech support). They replaced the fan itself. I got it back yesterday and as soon as I hit power, the fan kicked in at HIGH speed. Making matters WORSE, the system gave me an error during the boot sequence that it didn't recognize and couldn't charge the battery! It allowed me to ESC out of the error and booted to my desktop. That's when I realized the Touchpad wouldn't work at all! I had to connect a wireless mouse via USB to do ANYTHING!

To add insult to injury, there's an inch-long scratch on the Midnight Blue lid that wasn't there the last time I sent it back!

So now, I've got the FAN/motherboard issue, some sort of Battery problem AND the Touchpad doesn't work! The scratch is the least of my worries...

Dell :: Studio 1555 Overheat + (warranty)

Apr 3, 2010

had my s1555 for about half a year and didnt have much problems with it hardware wise.

but recently, after the weather started getting hotter, i noticed my internal temperatures are getting quite high, using hardware moniter, expecially the gpu, which goes up to around 80s fast.

looking at hardware moniter, it seems the gpu heats up really fast but seems to cool quite fast too, like it would jup 3 degrees at a time when in a game.

i didnt pay much attention to it until i was in the middle of a game (warcraft 3, not even a 3d intensive game) and my comp shut down by itself, most likely due to gpu overheating.

Dell :: Square Trade Warranty Or Warranty?

May 16, 2009

I just recently placed an order for a Studio 1737 (replacing an Inspiron E1705). It comes with a 1 year warranty.

I'm debating whether it's worth spending $200+ to upgrade to a Dell 3 year warranty or should I get a 3 year Square Trade Warranty for less than $150 (I can get one for around $120 after a coupon)?

Dell :: Studio 15 Or XPS 15 Laptop?

Mar 22, 2009

I am trying to decide between the Studio 15 laptop or the XPS 15 laptop. I really really really wanted a backlit keyboard, and while the Studio 15 has it the XPS 15 does not.

But, that being said I really like the look and build qaulity of the XPS 15. I'm just using it for web surfing and programming, so the power isn't a concern and they are relatively the same price(with the customization that I want)

Dell :: Studio Laptop = AWESOME

May 14, 2010

I just got a Dell Studio laptop (OPI edition), and it’s incredibly fast & gorgeous!

Just thought I’d pass this along too, Dell has a coupon for $50 off systems $699+ with coupon code: WQQ$MQ0M4JNCWD. Or you can save $100 off systems $999+ with coupon code: B980P775CS2Z02. These last til the end of June at dell.com/dellu. I highly recommend Dell. I know Macs seem to be the latest trend or the “go to” computer, but Dell is all I’ve ever owned and I’ve never had an issue. I’m definitely a repeat customer, and I always suggest it to my friends and family.

Dell :: Laptop Bag For Studio XPS 1645

Mar 10, 2010

I have an order for the XPS 1645 16" and am wondering what bag you guys would recommend.

Ideally I'm after something lightweight and not a heavy duty briefcase style if I can help it.
I see loads of bags for 15.6" and 17" - should I err towards a 17" one?

I'm in the UK, so have been looking at what Amazon offer, this one seems popular:

Dell :: Possible To Install Windowx Xp On Studio 17 Laptop

Oct 1, 2008

I want to buy a dell.com.au Studio 17 laptop. Problem is that they only offer Windows Vista and the software I want to run on the laptop is buggy and generally slower with Vista.

If I purchase Windows XP software speratly; will I be able to erase Vista and run XP?

I've done this with desktops before though i'm not sure if Dell has specific drivers/hardware only available in their factory install of Vista...

On another note, will RAID 0 still work with two SATA 200gb 7200rpm hardrives if I am able to get XP on it?

I'm worried that if I format the laptop I wont be able to install anything and have to get it repaired by sending it back to dell !

Dell :: Transport Studio 1737 Laptop Without The Battery In It?

Sep 1, 2009

This might be a dumb question but, can I transport my Dell studio 1737 laptop without the battery in it? Is the tiny battery inside enough to keep everything okay (not sure what 'everything' is).

I based the size on specs from the Dell site plus answers to my questions from a tech support guy via chat. He told me that my new 9 cell battery would only stick out the back of the laptop by 1". I specifically asked him if it would stick out the bottom, he said no.

Dell Studio 1555 :: Laptop Switches Off Automatically

Dec 4, 2014

I have dell studio 1555 laptop with processor Intel core 2 duo t6600 and ram 3 gb with video memory ati radeon 4570(512 mb) running windows 8.1 x64.I uses my laptop to download movies so it runs almost 24 hrs a day recently when i got back from my work laptop was turned off (no power outage was occurred at that time) when i tried to turn on the laptop it starts to produce continuous beep sounds(and no display) after some trial and error i found out that charging adapter was the culprit if it is connected laptop won't turn on and continuous beeps sounds occurs , but if you start the laptop without the adapter and then connect the adapter back on then no problem.

And the event viewer has under the critical error section an error named Kernel power(event id 41)(The system has rebooted without cleanly shutting down first. This error could be caused if the system stopped responding, crashed, or lost power unexpectedly.)

And I will list some of the errors in the event viewer here kernel event tracing(Session "" failed to start with the following error: 0xC0000011),ACPI(: The embedded controller (EC) did not respond within the specified timeout period. This may indicate that there is an error in the EC hardware or firmware or that the BIOS is accessing the EC incorrectly. You should check with your computer manufacturer for an upgraded BIOS.

Dell Studio 1537 :: Laptop Screen Goes Blank After Restart

Jul 8, 2010

I've had my Studio 1537 for about a year and once in awhile my laptop screen goesblank after my computer restarts or if I turn my laptop on. This happened to be about 10 times (the first time I spent about 3 days on the phone with a technian) already and I always have to reinstall Windows Vista to get my laptop working again. Today I found out that whenever my computer updates my video drive my screen will go blank, is this normal? What I can do to prevent this from happening again? My screen also goes blank when I install a video driver from the dell CD, but when I uninstalled it in safe mode and restart my laptop my screen is no longer blank.
