Dell :: Studio Laptop = AWESOME

May 14, 2010

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

Just thought Iíd 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 ďgo toĒ computer, but Dell is all Iíve ever owned and Iíve never had an issue. Iím definitely a repeat customer, and I always suggest it to my friends and family.

Dell :: XPS M1330 Doesn't Charge Awesome

Feb 22, 2009

So recently just sent my 1330 to get the mobo replaced for the first time after owning if for several months, got it back and had already ordered the copper shim for the now famous "copper mod".

So all is going well, slowly I start to notice that while plugged in the laptop slows down - to the point of a 20 minute boot up. Unplug it and run off battery and it instantly speeds up. After speaking to Dell they've concluded I need yet another mother board (having just got this one back a month or so ago.)

Anyone else having a similar issue? A tech is swapping it in the first half of this week...

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 :: 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 :: 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 :: 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. In some situations, this error may cause the computer to function incorrectly.) ,Ntfs(The default transaction resource manager on volume E: encountered a non-retryable error and could not start.  The data contains the error code.)

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.

Dell Studio 1535 :: Cannot Install Windows XP OS On Brand New Laptop

Feb 19, 2009

I just bought a new Dell Studio 1535 and encountered the following problem:

I inserted my windows xp installation cd (as the laptop came with no OS). Windows setup began running, installing a multitude of drivers and files as it should until a message, something in the likes of "starting windows" (up to this point the screen is still the dos-style setup program). After a few seconds, a MS windows blue screen appears, stating that it encountered a fatal error.

Dell Studio 1558 :: Laptop Won't Boot Up / No BIOS Screen

Dec 3, 2014

I have a Studio 1558 laptop, about 3 years old and a couple of weeks ago it stopped working.

When I press the power button (both on battery and on mains supply) the power button lights up white and stays white and my backlit keyboard lights up.  I can hear the fan whirring but thats all that happens. It will stay like this for ever until I press the power button and it then shuts down instantly.  There is no BIOS screen and I get no POST beeps.

I've tried plugging it into my TV as an alternative monitor but there's still nothing.  I've checked the hard drive and swapped it for a new one but it still makes no difference.  I've checked the memory and that's fine.  If i try to boot up with the memory removed I do get two beeps.

Dell Studio 1555 :: Laptop Shuts Down Automatically When Using Internet In Some Browser

Jan 14, 2015

I own a Dell studio 1555. When I first encountered the auto shut down problem, I ran the diagnostics and found my HDD is crashed. So I replaced with a new 1TB WD. My RAM is of 3GB. After couple of days, this problem started again.  Majorly, I see this problem when I am trying to use internet in some browser.

One of the service center person told that it could be a CPU fan problem. He replaced it, but still the problem persists. Warranty period is expired for my laptop.

Dell Studio 1749 :: Stop Charging - Laptop Won't Power Up With Battery Removed

Mar 8, 2010

Last Friday i received my new Studio 1749 with i3. As told by the documentation I put in the battery, put the power cable in the ac-adapter, pluged the AC-cable into the laptop and then pluged the ac-adapter into the wall outlet. I booted the laptop and once I was on the windows desktop had a look at the battery symbol. It showed that the laptop was connected to external power and that the battery was being charged.

I wen't away from the laptop to let it charge the battery for 12 hours as told by the documentation. After two hours i came back to have a look at the laptop and it was off. Curious I turned it on again. After booting up it showed the battery at 60% and the laptop running from battery. Yet the ac-adapter was connected to the laptop. I hadn't changed anything. I pluged the adapter cable in and out, but it wouldn't recognize that the was external power available. Turning the laptop off an on again didn't work either.

Now I feared for the battery. My guess is that at one point it started to run on battery power even though it was not charged for 12 hours. Then when the battery was depleted the laptop shut down. This might have permanently damaged the battery!

I guess as soon as the laptop was off the ac-adapter charged the battery again, and when I came in it was just at 60%.

So I turned it off removed the ac-adapter, removed the battery, put the battery back into the laptop pluged the ac-adapter back in and booted up again. Now it showed it was running from external power again. All fine. It charged the battery as well. Actually it charged the battery up to 99% and then out of nowhere the battery symbol changed and it was running from battery AGAIN! Even though it was still connected to the ac-adapter. This happens all the time. It is reproducable.

So I thought something might be wrong with the ac-adapter.

I powered down the laptop and removed the battery. Now with only the ac-adapter connected ,I tried to start the laptop. The control lights above the keyboard came on for 2 or 3 seconds and then the laptop turned off again. Trying to hit the power button again after that didn't give another reaction.

Conclusion: The laptop won't run just on external power with no battery in the battery bay.

I put in the battery again. AC-adapter still connected. Hit power. Laptop starts to boot. Then while booting I removed the battery. Laptop keeps on booting - finishes booting - runs nice and well at full speed not missing the battery - FOREVER.

So it won't boot with the battery removed, but it will run without it flawlessly??? Strange isn't it?

Next test: I put in the battery again while the laptop is running from mains. And now it charges the battery again until the point... you already know... it "forgets" that it is connected to the ac-adapter and starts running on battery power. So now I boldly removed the battery while the laptop was running. After all it was still connected to mains/ac-power.
