Dell :: WARNING! Black CHAINLINK Color Option!

Aug 11, 2009

*UPDATE* The design is on the inside aswell. See pictures below.

I just wanted to give everybody a headsup that may be thinking about purchasing a Dell laptop and choosing the black chainlink color.

A little backstory:

I'm starting college at the end of the month, and was looking at getting a laptop for my classes. I really liked the Studio 15, read quite a bit of reviews and finally built it all online and got it ordered.

What I DIDN'T know was that the color option, Black Chainlink, was actually a design .....

Dell :: 14z Chainlink Black

Jul 5, 2009

I bought the 14z in black chainlink yesterday, and I was reading about how "magnetic" it was towards fingerprints, and also how the colored versions could be "that" much better.

Is it a different material or is it just how much the fingerprints show?

Dell :: Black Chainlink Finish

Nov 1, 2009

Looking at ordering a Studio 1557 and I'm hoping someone can confirm that the standard 'chainlink black' finish is shiny piano black?

Also do people find it scratches very easily?

Dell :: 1555 Black Chainlink

Aug 10, 2009

Finally, I've ordered my very own 1555 today

I've spent all my budget on upgrades so I've left the colour in standard black chainlink. Been googling for some photos,

I actually love the glossy black lit with the little chainlink patterns on. But what I don't like, in fact, REALLY don't like, is the fact that they've added the pattern in GREY on the palmrest inside?!

Dell :: Studio XPS 16 Might Soon Have A Bordeaux Red Color Option

Mar 23, 2009

So far, the leather-trimmed Studio XPS notebook only comes in black. But that could change very soon.

Dell's designers are considering a red (or according to them, "Bordeaux") plastic/leather lid combo, pictured here. It is not, however, part of the (Product) Red line.

Dell :: Warning EPP And Refund

Mar 12, 2009

I had a bunch of problems getting Dell to refund my money for a laptop I returned.
I purchased a $1700+ Dell Studio 17 laptop using my companys Employee Purchase Program on 1/13/2009 using my debit card.

I was very unhappy with its sound (totally unacceptable) and when after multiple attempts to remedy the situation failed I decided to return the laptop for a refund. Which I did on 2/6/2009.

When I was notified that the unit had arrived at Dell I called to find out when I could expect my refund and was notified that they would credit my account quickly".

I told them that was a problem because the account that I ordered it on (my debit card) had to be canceled because it was suspected that it was compromised so the account they would try and credit no longer existed. I was told no problem we will issue you a check and it should be delivered in 5-7 working days .....

Dell XPS 15z :: Shutdown Without Warning - Will Not Turn On

May 10, 2014

I was using my Dell XPS 15z when it turned off (didn't shut down). The system made a click noise and then it was gone; it will not power on. I get no battery lights and I get nothing when pressing the power button. I verified the AC adapter is working. When I plug the AC power in the wall socket, the light comes on; however, when I connect the Ac to the laptop the power light goes out on the AC adapter. The system was not hot, no burning smells. There appears to be substantial number of XPS systems experiencing the same failure.  I have tried a second AC adapter and no joy. I have read most of Dell's responses to this same issue. The fell its a motherboard failiure. Has Dell issued a recall for XPS 15Z since this is a known issue?

Dell :: Warning About A04 Bios Update For 1749

May 7, 2010

I have a dell 1749 with I7 and the ATI graphics card and loved it till today when I applied the recommended A04 version bios update.
It stopped at 69 out of 70 in the install process for over an hour and then I had a brick!

Dell have agreed to replace the unit as it is less than a month old and totally fried, it wont even get to the dell logo stage which means you can't revert to the previous bios.

It may have been that it was already faulty but I would be very wary of updating the bios at this time.

Dell Inspiron N5010 :: Crashes Without Warning

Apr 18, 2013

I have an Inspiron N5010, roughly two and a half years old. It's been a pretty good computer. It would never crash unless it overheated, and to solve that I soon bought a cooler. I've never really had too much a crashing problem, besides an odd crash here or there when, I'm assuming the problem is, a number of programs running large processes and taking up a vast amount of RAM, and even then it usually is quite warm. 

Lately I've not used the computer as much as I used to say, over the summer, but I'm still on it often. Normally I have a few tabs of Chrome open, and sometimes iTunes will be running as well. There's not usually anything more than that. However, my computer has randomly started to crash. Out of complete nowhere, with no warning whatsoever, the computer stops working and just... shuts down, as if it were overheating or something. At first I thought it had been due to charge, or had simply died on me, but when I plugged it back in both times it's done it now, I learn the battery has been probably a little under 100% when it crashed. The battery is quite new, received no sooner than November of last year.

The computer, when it crashes, is not warm at all either. Perhaps a little from where my hands were, but never warm enough to think it overheated. In the past three weeks, it's crashed twice. I know that sounds a bit little, but both times very little was actually being done. When it comes to school and projects and whatnot, when the workload really gets heavy (and it will!), I'm concerned it might start crashing more and more, or not be able to handle a heavy workload.

Nov 17, 2014

My laptop will randomly turn off. I don't think that it is overheating because sometimes it just shuts off like 1 minutes after i turn it on. I don't feel any heat coming from the fan or anything. When it turns off it doesn't go through the shutdown process it just turns off. Iv'e tried a factory reset and a complete virus/malware scan.

Dell :: Warning About Studio XPS 1647 BIOS And 1645

Dec 5, 2009

today I bricked my new 1645 when I was examing the BIOS for the 1647. The BIOS release 1647_A00.exe released this month automatically begins flashing on an 1645

and does not seem to check compatibility or confirm with the user before it updates.

The BIOS is completely incompatible with the 1645 to say the least, so be very careful if you download it on to a non-1647 system.

Dell is building a new system due to this really sad event. Rip XPS 1645 - December 5th 2009.

Dell :: Inspiron 1501 Warning: The Battery Cannot Be Identified

Aug 5, 2009

I am working on a Dell Inspiron 1501 laptop. At first the laptop displayed a message when first turned on "Warning: the battery cannot be identified This system will be unable to charge this battery.

Press any key to continue." I googled this warning and some recommended that the BIOS be upgraded. After the BIOS was upgraded the warning message did indeed go away.

But Windows XP still does not recognize this battery, and shows the laptop to be running on AC power even when the power adapter is not plugged in. Also, the charge light on the laptop does not light when the power adapter is plugged .....

Dell Inspiron 1501 :: Warning - Battery Cannot Be Identified

Nov 14, 2008

On Start, I receive a message: Warning: The battery cannot be identified. The system will be unable to charge this battery. Press any key to continue.

When I continue, everything seems to be ok; the battery charges normally. The warning appears on every Start. This started recently possibly after I installed Norton 360 Premier security package.

Can I continue ignoring it or does it really have a message for me. The laptop is an Inspiron 1501 and is slightly under 2 years old.

Dell XPS L501X :: Laptop Shuts Off Completely Without Warning

Dec 12, 2013

My XPS L501X laptop shuts off completely and without warning. What happens is the cursor freezes. The computer does not respond to anything. After about 15 to 60 seconds, the screen goes black and it completely powers down in an instant. It does not restart on its own.

After it shuts down I can re-boot, but sometimes is shuts off during re-boot. Other times it runs for 5 minutes or so. Usually it acts this way for a day or two, then it's "OK" for a week or so before it starts acting up again.

I have run Dell diagnostics and found no problems. I have taken it to the local computer shop. They ran diagnostics and found nothing wrong and were not able to get it to shut down. Yet when I brought it home, it shut down on me within the first hour of use. It seems to run longer in safe mode, but I did have it shut off unexpectedly today while it was in safe mode.

I suspected there might be a problem with my video card as it seemed to be worse when I had an external monitor hooked up to it. Then I ran it for several weeks without the external monitor and it seemed to be OK. Until today when it started shutting down again with no external monitor attached.

This has been an excellent computer until this started happening about 6 months ago. I"m on the verge of giving up and buying a desktop (another laptop like this one is just too expensive). My laptop is out of warranty.

Dell :: WARNING Computrace Lojack For Laptops And STUDIO XPS 1340

Jul 7, 2009

if you own a dell studio xps 1340 and either subscribe to computrace lojack for laptops, or it came bundled with your computer , you might want to know that either the bios agent in this computer is either missing or actually broken.

when activating computrace in the bios, it is actually doing nothing.

some time ago i upgraded to wirdows vista utiltmate from home premium . this is when my laptop stopped contacting the monitoring center for 30 days.

i reinstalled computrace and started contacting the center.

when i called absolute.com for support. they informed me that although the m1330 has the bios agent, they say that the xps 1340 is not on thier list of supported machines.

i opened up my dell xps 1340 and put in a spare sata drive and wiped it, and used the windows vista cd that came with the computer and installed vista .....

HP/Compaq :: Warning: Hdx Gets Warm

Jun 24, 2009

i got my new hdx and i decided to buy a game for it as well. I popped in warhammer:dawn of war 2 and it played well on mostly ultra-high settings. however the machine gets HOT after playing for about and hour. i also experienced this while playing crysis. it could have something to do with my cpu running at 45w but idk. anyways so i continued to play a little more warhammer and then i started seeing artifacts on my screen. before i knew it my screen was unviewable as the artifacts took over. I thought i was buring up my gpu so i quickly logged out of the game. my screen was still artifact filled so i turned off the computer and rebooted. everything seems to be fine till this moment and i think im very lucky. now i have my hdx raised up on all 4 corners with small business cards and i have my fan blowing at the bottom of the laptop from the right side. (This fan is blowing the same direction that the laptop fan blows). i also put my battery in front the of the fan so that would kool as well. so i decided to give warhammer another shoot. i played it for 2.5 hrs straight and the computer remains cooler that i expected. the battery too is way cooler. i would say my cheap cooling system worked after all.

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

Mar 7, 2010

studio 17 fan problems

2nd description:
http://en.community.dell.com/forums/t/19321860.aspx

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.
