Dell :: Thinking Of Replacing My Studio's OD W/a Blu-Ray, Anyone Know The Model#?

Mar 12, 2009

Anyone here upgrade to a 'Blu-Ray' player after receiving your Studio Laptop?
I know there's a guide on how to replace the 'optical drive'

I just need to confirm the Model Number before trying to purchase one. Probably from eBay.

From what I can tell the model number: "Sony BC-5600S" is the one I need.
However, some list the "Sony BC-5500S" as one that will work..

Dell :: Thinking Of Replacing M1530 With E6500

May 17, 2009

Depending on whether Dell can fix my M1530 with a motherboard replacement, I'm thinking of asking that they replace it with a Latitude E6500.

My father has this machine, and he seems pretty happy with it (aside from a few random crashes due to the way the IT Tech at his company configured the poor thing - the OS is a real mess).1) Are there any outstanding issues with the E6500 currently? Which is the preferred wireless card?

2) Does the Quadro video card have the same overheating issues as my 8600M in my M1530? I don't really game too much (all I'd be playing would be Half-Life based games) so I could get away with the X4500HD if I wanted to, but I'd prefer a dedicated graphics card (and I'd be having a screen which is 1920x1200).

Dell :: Is Replacing My 2 Year Old XPS M1530 With A Newer Model?

Mar 1, 2010

I have a 2 year old xps m1530 WITH the 4 year complete care package. After having a service tech come to my house NUMEROUS times to repair and replace the motherboard fo various problems, Dell has agreed to replace my XPS. Because the XPS m1530 is discontinued they said it would be a comparable model??? Has anyone had a replacement recently, and if so which model did you receive. I am mostly concerned about which video card I will get. I do alot of gaming on my laptop and currently have an Nvidia 8600. Now that Dell is using ATI, which card SHOULD I expect to get?

Dell :: Studio 15 Replacing LCD Cover

Nov 9, 2008

I just got my hands a Studio 15 with great specs at the cheap, but with a pretty badly scratched up LCD lid. Has anyone attempted replacing the lid? Is it hard? I've opened up and replaced a processor, keyboard, fingerprint reader, ram, and hard drive before, but never an LCD cover. I'm kinda worried about the power button and wifi catcher, and I'm worrying I may not put the screen back the right way. This is supposed to be for my cousin, but I can't give it this badly scratched up.

Dell :: Replacing My Studio 1558 HD

Feb 18, 2010

I got a new Dell Studio 1558 a week or so back. Ever since I got it, I feel a constant vibration to the left of the touchpad.

After doing some research and asking some questions, apparently the Seagate 7200 RPMs have this issue. I confirmed it was the HD by putting the HD to sleep and the vibration would stop.

The best solution to me seems to replace the Seagate with a WD 5400 RPM HD. I have been looking at their Scorpio Blue for this:
http://accessories.us.dell.com/sna/p...4&sku=A2436199

Will it work with the 1558? And, how do I go about setting up the laptop after replacing the HD?

I don't have any important documents that need to be transferred, but I am guessing I will have to use the Dell DVDs to setup Windows?

Thanks

Dell :: Looking Into Replacing The Studio 15 Speakers

Jan 23, 2009

The speakers in the studio 15 are pretty bad, worse than any other laptop I've ever used (worse than my cell-phone)... and I've never even used the Dell audio drivers which are supposed to be even worse. I've picked up a set of Logitech V20 speakers which are great, but it would be nice to upgrade the stock speakers.

I've started doing some digging ... the speakers are part number Dell part D954D made by Veco (http://www.veco.com.tw/all-index.htm) which makes a lot of small speakers and custom notebook mounts .....

Dell :: New Studio 15z Core I5 Model 1569 At Best Buy

Jan 5, 2010

I just came back from Best Buy and saw the new Dell Studio 15z (1569) with the Intel Core i5! It's less than 1" thick! Slot load DVD, HDMI, displayport, 3 USB, SD Reader, and matte lid! This one was brown. The best part is the battery! It is no longer in the back like the current dell studio 15/17. It is now flat and thin like the HP Envy's!! It's now underneath the laptop!

Sorry I couldn't take pictures but they just put it out and had a HAND WRITTEN price tag with info! It has the Intel Core i5 420 I think. You really have to see how THIN and SMALL the laptop is! I hope they make a 14"!

Dell :: Thinking Of Getting A 1530

May 13, 2009

how bad is the 8600m gt overheating issue... has anyone that games had one of these for over a year without it going bad?

Second, The unit I am looking at has the 256gb ssd... is there a significant performance boost from this, and does it generate more or less heat than a regular hard drive? Do you guys think it is worth it to get one?

also how are the LED screens on them... I know a while back they had a lot of screen issues.

Dell :: Replacing Studio 1555 Screen

Aug 21, 2009

I somehow managed to drop my new Dell Studio 1555, resulting in a cracked screen.

With some hardware knowledge I felt that the best option would be a self-replacement job. However, the 1555 screens alone are over 100 on eBay

However, there are 1545 screens for just 60. Would one of these work OK on my 1555

Dell :: Studio 1536 - Upcoming Model Or One That Exists Already Outside Of U.S.

Sep 25, 2008

My new Studio 15 (1535, technically) came with a manual that references a Studio 1536 model in addition to the 1535 and 1735. The Dell Support site also lists three Studio models- 1535, 1536 and 1735.

Based on Dell's model numbering, the 1536 is an AMD-based Studio 15. The manual also noted that one of the graphics options for this model is the ATI Radeon Mobilty HD 3200 which is the integrated graphics processor available with AMD's newest "Puma" processors.

So, I'm trying to figure out if we're going to see a Studio 1536 introduced in the very near future, based on the AMD Puma platform. OR is this a model sold outside of the U.S. market?

It seems logical that Dell would offer an AMD-based Studio 15 to compete against HP's dv5z and Toshiba's A305D models.

Dell :: Thinking Of Porting From A MB Air To Adamo

Dec 9, 2009

I started out with a M1210 and than moved to a MB Air. I like the Air but i really want to come back to Windows so would you recommend the Adamo or the Adam XPS ?

I really like that Adamo XPS but what do you think of the specs ? Will it preform well ? Would it preform as good as my Air with 120 SSD, Nvida Card and 2 GB Ram?

Dell :: Thinking About Upgrading Processor (Latitude D630)

May 3, 2010

I recently upgraded the processor in my Inspiron 1545 to an Intel T9400. I think that processor totally rocks and performs as well as I need for everything that I do.

My Latitude D630 is not so fortunate. I forgot what the processor was that it has, but it has a 2MB cache and a 2ghz clock speed. It does not perform as well as my Inspiron does. If I were to buy another T9400 (since I already know I like it) could I pop it in my D630? Or is it not compatible with it?

Acer :: Confusing Aspire Model/sub Model Numbers

Mar 5, 2009

I'm trying to find info on an aspire... Not the model # itself as that is not the problem, but the sub model#...

The model is Acer Aspire 8930G, but the sub model # is 6963 and that is where my research seems to go dry... Does anyone have info on this sub model #?

Also i might ask is how user friendly is the 8930G for upgrades as for the processor and video? The current processor is the T5800 with the 9600m nvidia... Would it make sense to upgrade and what is the potential of this 8930G with the T5800?

Acer :: Thinking About A Timeline 1810

Nov 25, 2009

I had originally planned to get an HP Mini 311, but the Timeline 1810 seems like I'd be getting much more for the money, even with weaker video capabilities. The problem is I'm having incredible difficulty finding any reviews or user feedback on the 1810.

How is the video playback on the 1810? Can it do HD flash with or without v10.1? Likewise, I'm not really a PC gamer at all, but I do enjoy playing Civ 4 once in a while - think it could run on an 1810?

What's bootup/shutdown time for Windows 7?

How is it in terms of noise and heat?

How's the keyboard? That's another big complaint I had with the Mini, the keyboard feels very cheap and breakable.

What is Acer customer support like? Are they easy to get answers from? Are they willing to fix things, or is it an argument even under warranty?

lastly: where's the best place to get a Timeline? It doesn't look like Acer sells them directly.

Dell :: New Latitude Model Numbers

Jan 3, 2010

This Dell document (which isn't that new) tends to confirm the assumptions about the numbering of the refreshes of the Latitude / Precision series.

The Dell Client Deployment Pack 1.0 supports the following Dell
systems:

Quote:

Latitiude Series
XT2, XT2 , XFR , D420 , D500 , C510 , Z600 , E5410 , E5510 , E5400
E5500 , LT , E4310 , E4300 , E6510 , E6500 , E4200 , XT , E6410
E6410 ATG , E6410 XFR , E6400 , E6400 ATG , XFR E6400

OptiPlex Series
160L , 780 , 780USFF , 380 , GX1 , 580 , 960 , 760 , 360 , 745 , 755
760 , 745c , xE , 980

Precision Series
M4500 , M4400 , 390 , M6300 , M4300 , T7400 , T5400 , M2300 , T7500
T500 , T3500 , M6400 , R5400 , M6500 , R5400 , T3400

This suggests that the Latitude numbers are what everyone assumed they would be. The M6500 has arrived but, so far, Google isn't unearthing anything about the E4310, E6410 and E6510.

Dell :: Replacing GPU In M1730

Jan 13, 2010

I am down to 1 GPU on my M1730, in the interest of replacing it , from the forum sticky these seem to be the options

XPS M1730
Nvidia 8700M (both single and SLI****)
Nviida 8800M GTX SLI
Nvidia 9800M GT SLI
Nvidia 9800M GTX SLI

(I assumme this list is complete still . i.e. no 260's or 280's available)

Other than Dell or EBay are there any other sites , suppliers that people know of who might supply one of the above

DELL want 340 + Vat for a sli 8700m and there is every so often a 8800M for sale on ebay but they typically want approx 500 pounds for it (anyone had experience of buying one?)

I am dubious about the 8800 as evidence suggests it runs hot so would prefer a cheap 8700m or a warrentied 9800M

Dell :: Replacing An SXPS 16 HDD

Jun 30, 2009

I buy the SXPS 16 with a 4670 the minute it is released in Canada and configure it to as closely to my current config as possible.

When it comes in, I manually swap the HDDs from my current SXPS 16 to the new one.

Would this allow me to get around installing Windows and all my programs? Once I swap the HDDs and turn on the new laptop, will it boot up as if it was the old one, but with newer hardware?

And I'd just like to vent my frustration that I can't order the SXPS with the 4670 and a T9800/T9900 in Canada yet

Dell :: Replacing HD In 1645 With A SSD?

Oct 20, 2009

I'm under the impression that the Studio XPS 1645 will be using a similar, if not identical, chassis to the 1640. Given that, how easy is it to replace the hard drive with a SSD?

I didn't bother with a SSD option on account of the price, but once the price comes down a bit I'm hoping to replace the drive and use the existing drive externally.

How much of a headache is this and what should I be aware of with regard to known SSD issues,

Dell :: Replacing My Laptop

Oct 5, 2009

Well the worst happened and my trusted Dell M1710 powerhouse that I've had for several years was dropped into a tub of water. I've got the complete care warranty so I called Dell to get a replacement unit.

Well after waiting a little over a week Dell agreed to send me a replacement unit; however, since the Dell XPS M1710 is no longer in stock they're going to send me a Dell Studio XPS 16.

I was wondering if everyone here thought that was a fair trade or an upgrade?

Dell :: Xps 16 Can Beat Which Model Of New Apple Imac

I just got SXPS 16 with the specs below

i7 820Qm
4GB 500GB 7200
Bluray rom
ATI 4670 1GB

And I plan to buy an imac to be my powerful Desktop or in case my Laptop stops working sometimes.

I need one more powerful than my Dell (If less I dont know why I have to buy a Desktop anyway)

I know i7 2.8Ghz quad core with hyper threading and Ati 4850 512 GB model from new Imac will beat My Dell badly but How about i5 model with ATI 4850 512 or Core 2 3.33 E8600 (if I got it right) with ATI 4670 256 GB?

Dell :: Power Supply Model # Matter Much?

May 1, 2010

needed a new charger, dell listed 5 options for my service tag #. So I called them and the guy in india said said the NF599 was the one I need if I wanted the 6' cord.

Put NF599 into amazon and ordered one, received a UU572. Specs all appear to be the same, this one doesnt say 90w anywhere on it but the specs online all say 90w. Its also a 3 prong and not a 2 prong like the NF599, that may actually be nice so it doesnt fall out of the socket so easily.
