Dell :: Inspiron 13, XPS M1330, Studio XPS 13, Vostro 1320 Or Vostro 1310

Apr 5, 2009

im not sure if i want a graphic card in it, as it would just eat battery life and i would get nothing much out of it, since i have no plans in gaming with it.

i will be, however massively watching movies, and streaming movies (99.9% of the web, not dvd player) would that need a dedicated graphic card?

i would also like to know which are the best in terms of :

price, screen quality, build quality, weight, which ones have the same keyboard,current known issues, and are they any rumors or known news of any updates of any of these models in the next 6 months worth waiting for?

ive also bought a m1330 a few months back, but since i had some issues with school, i had to return it and delay my purchase to this year.

the laptop was getting extremely hot, like not even possible to put on my lap kind-of hot. is that issue fixed?

Jul 1, 2009

So I am contemplating between these two models but can't really decide. I like the real estate of the Vostro 1520 but the weight may be a problem. The 1320 is an option cause of it's battery life and weight. But at this point I am at a standstill...
So mainly, what are your opinions about these two macines..

Dell :: Output Blu-ray Vostro 1320

Dec 30, 2009

I'm thinking of buying an external blu-ray player for my wife's 1320.

Questions:

1. I'm almost sure it'll work with her Intel graphics. Am I right?

2. As you know the Vostro doesn't have a DVI or Display port. Will it output the full 1080 to our 23" monitor through the VGA?

Dell :: Vostro 1320 Or Studio XPS 13

Sep 17, 2009

I'm looking for opinions on which of these notebooks to purchase. I like both because they are 13" form factor and both are nicely spec'd but the Vostro is cheaper when spec'd out. I can get both in red which is another plus.

I can't find much info on the Vostro 1320 here on the forums and I do know that there are some heat issues with the XPS 13 that seem to be alleviated through updates.

Dell :: Vostro 1320 Durability Vs E5400 ?

Dec 4, 2009

The Vostro 1320 looks almost ideal for what I need (a pc easy to move around but can still serve as desktop replacement for most tasks). The matte screen is a big plus, as is the integrated optical drive. The price is also quite reasonable.

I however question his long term durability. I'd like to keep this laptop for around 4 years. Is the 5400 more susceptible to last that long ? It's a bit bigger but I'm ok with that, as long as there is a real quality difference. It's still smaller than my current 15"

Dell :: Need Advice Buying Vostro 1320

Jun 24, 2009

I am intending to buy a Vostro 1320, I will use it for text editing, Internet surfing, occassional photoediting, so I don't have high hardware demands only that computer works smoothly.

There are some things which I dont understand:

1) they offer processors with fsb 800 Mhz and fsb 1066 Mhz, but the RAM memory works on 800 Mhz

I am prepared to pay for little bit better processor but do I have advantage of better CPU when I have slower Ram ?

2) they have also half-height and full-height wireless card,
is it some particular advantage with half-height ?

3) is it worth to buy 256 MB Nvidia instead of onboard Intel X4500MHD graphics card, and as I said my demands on graphics are not so high ?

Dell :: Vostro 1320 Reformat Issue?

May 30, 2009

I recently received my new Vostro 1320 and i'm quite satisfied with the system thus far.

I would however really like to put my own copy of XP on it (the system came with Vista Basic). I have my own copy of XP and all the XP drivers from dell's support site.

I've heard that there might be some issues regarding the BIOS that might make the reformat less than simple. Can anyone provide any advice about it or should I go about it as usual.

Dell :: Anyone Ordered A Vostro 1320/1520/1720 Yet?

Apr 25, 2009

I'm anxious to see how the new models compared to their predecessors. I've always liked the Vostro models and recommend them quite often in lieu of budget "retail" models.

They have decent build quality, look nice and they often go on-sale for dirt cheap!

The new models look promising. I hope that they are at least as good as the 1310/1510/2510/1710 that they're replacing. I'd also love to see the 1320 with a 13.3" LED-backlit display like the one on the Lenovo ThinkPad SL300!

Dell :: IDT Audio Not Working On Vostro 1320 In Windows 7 X64.

Last night my audio went dead, and I didn't change or install anything.

I've run the diagnostics tool and confirmed that the audio is indeed working, both the internal and the headphone jack.

I'm running Windows 7 x64 and the drivers I'm using are from Dell's driver site, version 6.10.0 6224 dated 03/11/2009

I've tried older drivers but no luck.

Dell :: Vostro 1320, Worth To Upgrade Webcam And HD?

Apr 15, 2009

I got a good deal on Vostro 1320 base model and just got confirmation from Dell Canada. Now can any one share your opionion whether it is worthwhile to add the integrated 1.3M webcam for $40 and upgrade HD from 160G 5400rpm HD to 250G 7200rpm HD with free fall sensor for $50 (all before tax)?

I might call them to see if they can manually upgrade for me.

I know I can upgrade the HD afterward, and I usually can find a good deal on 320G 7200rpm Hitachi HD for $70 or so if I can wait.

But my question is how difficult and how much hassle is to upgrade HD myself, and does that invalid the warranty, also what does the free fall sensor mean? Worth to have it?

I get these "skips" and "stutter" on everything, movies, mp3, FLAC and it doesn't matter which media player I use.

The driver version is: 6.10.0.6146 and is called IDT High Definition Audio Codec.

What brand is that exactly, Intel?

Dell Vostro 1320 :: BIOS Recovery Command / Software Utilities?

Mar 21, 2011

I have a Vostro 1320 that crashed during a bios update, Power/battery light still come on and the screens backlight comes on but it remains black, and shows absolutley nothing on the screen, not even that little white underscore, completely black.

Ive been looking around and from what ive found this dell has a phoenix BIOS and I have found people in forums who have successfully recovered from bad bios flashes such as mine but on different model dells. They used a program called "phoenix bios crisis recovery" however I can not find this program for download for my model laptop.

-a download link for this phoenix bios program for my vostro 1320 for making a bootable usb of new bios. 
-The keyboard commands for my vostro 1320 to force a blind flash

 (even if you cant find the phoenix bios recovery program knowing this command could work,  should be something like windows key + b or function + b, It might work because although im fairly sure i need the phoenix bios recovery disc i might be able to reflash without it, I have already extracted the .wph and .rom files from the new bios im flashing and i might be able to get one of those to work for a reflash)...

HP/Compaq :: V2000lightning Symbol Flashes But Won't Boot

Apr 9, 2009

I bought a Compaq v2000 a few years ago, has worked fine up until a couple weeks ago.

Now, it won't turn on. The battery (12 cell? extended version) has probably been dead for a while, but we always use AC power so no big deal there.

Currently, if you hit the power button, the amber lightning symbol on the front just flashes 3 or 4 times, then nothing.

Take the battery out, same thing. Take the AC adapter out, same thing.

My initial guess is battery or power supply are toast, but seems weird for it to just die like that (guess that's how it is with electronics though). If it is a total loss, no big deal, just need to get the hdd out and copy stuff off, the laptop probably needed replacing anyway...

Dell :: Upgrade A M1210 (2ghz C2D T7200) To A Vostro 1320 (T9550) 2.6ghz? Worth The Upgrade?

Jan 11, 2010

I have an aging M1210 with 2 gigs of ran, a OCZ SSD & the C2D 2ghz T7200 processor.

I wasnt really planning on an upgrade but the pricing looks pretty good.

I am not sure if its worth it though. My M1210 with SSD is amazing.

I just dont know if going from a 2.0 T7200 to a 2.66 T9550 is worth it or if i should wait longer for an I7 system in this size?

Acer :: Aspire 5570-2609 Will Not Boot. Hdd Light Flashes, And No Video Output

Oct 16, 2007

I have an Acer as5570-2609 aspire laptop that will not boot up. It is like new, hardly been used. When I power it up, the fan comes on for about 3 or 4 seconds, and the hdd light flashes three times in a row, then waits a second or two, the flashes three times again, then goes black. The dvd drive ejects and will spin up a disc, but thats it. I tried swapping in a known good hard drive and nothing helps. I also tried re-seating a few of the easily accessible modules, such as the ram and wireless. I still have not seen a single flicker of the LCD screen. No beeps, nothing...
