Dell :: Water Cooling M6400

Mar 29, 2009

I like my M6400. Except that I am sick of the noise the fans make.

My M6300 runs at hotter temperatures without the fans almost ever kicking in for light applications. As a result it is a pleasant quite piece of kit to work with.

The M6400 is loud and annoying in the continuous on-off cycles. Notebook coolers with fans do not work well in my experience .....

Dell :: M6400 And The M6400 Covet? Whats The Difference?

Jul 17, 2009

Yup me again, in my hunt to determine if M6400 is right for me as it costs just about as much as a used car, I want to make sure its a good investment before I buy it.

What is the main difference with the M6400 and the M6400 Covet?

I configured both with the same specs and the Covet is about $900 more in price?

Does orange paint really cost that much?

Dell :: Water On My Keyboard

Jan 24, 2009

I knew it was going to happen sooner or later, and it did. I spilled a little water on my keyboard tonight. I dried it up fast enough or so I thought . When I type the letter q or z it comes up qa and za. the a pops up automatically after typing those letters. I finally got to the keyboard unscrewed it and noticed a little bit more water underneath. It wasn't a lot but enough to notice.

Am I screwed here or will this dry enough to get back to normal? When it first happened all my words were jumbled, but now it is just those 2 letters. Funny now my Caps lock is going on by itself

Should I just shut down for the night and keep the keyboard disassembled so it could dry?

Dell :: M1710 Under Soapy Water

Feb 23, 2008

Looks like I will be next in the Dell exchange line. I was showing my wife something when she was in the tub, I stood up, lost my balance and dropped the laptop in her bath. She SHIT! It was completely submerged while turned on, I can't imagine that anything is any good on it anymore.

Dell :: I Spilled Water On My Laptop

Dec 15, 2008

Wouldn't you know it, I have been clumsy as can be today; I spilled three drinks. The first two were no real big deal, but the last one was right on the top of my 1420! Before I could do anything, it shut down and I don't know if it was in my mind or what, but I thought I could hear faint sizzling. Now I'm waiting for it to dry only so I can confirm I am hosed. Looks like I am stuck with a minimum of $200 for a new motherboard provided I haven't fried anything else. What a crappy end to a day...

I'm switching to sippy cups!

Dell :: E6400 Water Damage

Feb 27, 2009

I've managed to spill half a glass of water onto my E6400. I unplugged it and straight away and waited 24 hours.

The laptop now doesn't boot: the BIOS runs and the hard drive gets accessed and then it powers down.

Is it going to be obvious to the engineer that all of this was caused by water?

Dell :: Vostro 1x20 Water Resistance

Jan 29, 2010

1: Does anybody know if the keyboard is actually water resistant?

2: If I spill water on it and it breaks, is it my fault for spilling or dell's fault for failing to do what it advertised?

Dell :: Inspiron 1525 With Water Damage

Feb 10, 2009

i've been given a Dell Inspiron 1525 with water damage to repair.

it doesn't look like a lot of water has gone into it, there's some marks on the metal parts of the internal frame and a little bit of rust marks on the top of the dvd writer drive. There was some corrosion/rust on a couple of the chips which i have cleaned and scrubbed off.

When it's plugged in, the blue battery led comes on, when left on both the power light and the battery light come on aswell as the light under the power button, But it doesn't boot and the fan doesn't start.

at one point the fan did spin but only for about 3-4 seconds and went back off.

Dell :: Inspiron 1525 Water Spill

Jan 12, 2009

Dell Inspiron 15.4 inch i1525-119B laptop computer. It worked fine since it was new (not used much), but suffered spill damage (small amount of water spilled on the keyboard) and now will not power on. The keys do not stick, and function fine. The DVD drive pops open when I push it, like normal.

A few indicator lights will come on when I hit the power button, and the fan turns on, but that's as far as it goes. It has another 3 months left on the warranty but spill damage is not covered and I assume they will know what happened if i send it in for repair

Dell :: Spilled Water On My E1705- Keyboard

Sep 14, 2007

I accidentally spilled some water on my laptop this evening. i dried everything out and everything seems to be working fine..except for that my left "Ctrl" key is acting really weird. Something is making it seem like it's being constantly held down (although it physically isn't). The only way I can disable this is through the On-Screen Keyboard in Windows XP. But after hitting the particular Ctrl key, it goes back to being held down again. Is there anything I can do to fix this? Or is this something that wouldn't cost too much to repair?

Dell :: E1705 Replacement For Water Damage

Aug 19, 2009

Hi this is my first post and I just had a question about a replacement for my e1705 through complete care. I left my laptop outside and it poured and I completely forgot about it.

I haven't talked to dell yet but I'll definitely be covered if I have complete care correct? Also I've been reading that sometimes you don't get the same laptop back and you get a replacement.

What are the chances that I'd get another e1705 since I have accessories for it already that I like (bluetooth adapter that I'm hoping isn't ruined and an extra battery) or would I get a newer laptop since the e1705 has been discontinued? Also how long am I going to be without a laptop? I did a search but I wanted some answers for my specific case.

Dell :: 1520 Spilled Water On My Laptop

Sep 21, 2008

Was searching for the water on my desk last night and completely knocked it over on my inspiron 1520 (was still on). I immediately disconnected all the power and air dried it with a fan. Now it won't boot when I turn it on and I noticed that the fan doesn't turn on either.

Dell :: XPS M1210 LCD Images As Water Color Picture?

Sep 5, 2009

I've got an XPS M1210 with NVidia GeForce 7400 and since last week all the pictures or videos appear blurry with artifacts, somehow like watercolor paints or with burn efect pictures.

Other observation: on the Windows locking blue screen (see below picture), instead the clear light blue on upper left corner, I can see something like a sun with round circles around effect .....

Sony :: Water Under Vaio FW LCD Screen

Aug 19, 2009

I would like to know if there's a way to remove the liquid under my LCD screen.

At first there was a big circle with a diameter of 3 inches. then after leaving it idle for about 3 or 4 days, the circle shrinked with a diameter of 2 cm. after that, I left the computer alone for another 4 days and that 2cm circle is still there. i turned the laptop and viewed the screen at a 45 angle and i see one normal drop of water and many small drops in that one area.

should i wait until it dries out? or should i disassemble the screen?

- considering there's no air or anything in the LCD screen itself, i dont think the water will disappear anytime soon. possibly 2 or 4 months? lol =(

water came in contact with the SCREEN only, all other parts (keyboard, speakers, cpu, etc. are CLEAN)

HP/Compaq :: Water Damage On HDX18

Feb 7, 2010

I have an issue on my 8 month old HP HDX18 laptop....my 3 yr old son was watching a video and accidently spilled 1/4 glass of water on the laptop.

The lappie shut off and wouldn't turn back on. I quickly disconnected it from the wall and removed the battery. Then I opened up the case up, took apart the mem, HDD and left it outside in my backyard today to dry up and then put everything together and booted up. Laptop boots up usual now BUT the wireless/volume are disabled. Some of the arrow keys are also not functioning normal either. While its obvious its not a total h/w failure, I have some doubts on the mobo/keyboard.

I do have the HP warranty but I'm pretty sure it doesn't cover water damage.

Dell :: Studio 17 Water Spill Estimated Costs And Return Time?

Apr 11, 2009

last night I spilled some water ( ) on my recently bought dell studio 17 laptop. It was mostly over the mouse finger pad and a little over the space bar.

It was turned on and plugged into the wall. The screen froze an nothing worked. I unplugged it from the wall and unplugged the battery and tried to tip the water out.

I left it in a tilted position overnight. It still wont turn on but when the battery goes on the white light on the side turns on.

Anyways I just wanted to get some advice on what to do. I called the Dell tech support but they were closed. If i send it in how long does that usually take and how much should i expect to pay for this type of problem?

Dell Inspiron 5520 :: Won't Stay Powered On Unless Hold Certain Key (after Water Damage)

Apr 8, 2013

My 2 year old spilled juice on my new laptop about 3 weeks ago, and now when I power it on it goes to the boot screen, the blue bar doesn't finish loading and it turns off. Ok, today I was just trying things. It's 3 buttons at the top right of the laptop, if I hold the middle one the computer will boot, stay on and I can do everything as normal. But if I let that button go, it turns right off.

Sony :: Spilled Water On My Vaio... Is It Really Dead

Apr 8, 2010

night before last a cup of water spilled over my keyboard. I quickly picked laptop up, dried it upside down then left it running. About an hour later I went to type something in and realised the keyboard wasnt working. I turned it off and took the battery and power supply off.

The next day I turned it back on and it was coming on but the keyboard still not working (if you press one key then another key would be pressed and 6 and w were pressed the whole time) so then we lifted the keyboard up and dried the area underneath with a hairdryer- only saw a few drops of water. Then tried turning it bakc on and it would come on but the keyboard still not working.

Then few hours later I tried turning it on again, and now, although the green light comes on and it sounds like it's gonna start, the screen is completely black.

HP/Compaq :: Spilled Water On My Laptop - It Wasn't Turned On But The Ports Were Wet

Oct 31, 2009

It was placed vertically in a bag and my grandma spilled water from a flower vase on my laptop. Good thing it wasn't turned on but The ports were wet and I wiped them with tissue.

I placed the laptop upside down in front of a fan to hopefully let all the water inside evaporate. I also dismantled the battery.

Dell :: Too Much Cooling

Feb 5, 2009

I was thinking of making my own notebook cooler, one with a fan directly over the air intake.

I was wondering if too much air going into the intake will spoil the fan inside, kinda like the air is moving faster than the internal fan can handle.

Dell :: Best Cooling Pad For XPS 13

Jun 16, 2009

I am looking at cooling pad for my 1340. Most of them have the fan in the center (like the Belkin, with great reviews) but my laptop gets hot at the very top left above the "studioXPS" logo and power button.

To me, this means I need a 3 fan-cooler with fans at the top corners as well as the center

Dell :: Cooling The Studio XPS 16

Apr 9, 2009

I take back what I said about this not getting as hot as my 1720. It most certainly runs hotters, especially under a medium to heavy load.

What steps have those of you with a 16 started taking to reduce your temperature? Anyone done any neat heatsink mods, replaced fans, found a program to control the fans, any of that?

Happy to hear any and all input, I love the Studio XPS 16 so far but it does get mighty toasty...and for the record, the warm touchpad area doesn't really bother me, but the underside does.

Dell :: Cooling Pad- M1710

Jul 7, 2007

I want to buy a cooling pad for an XPS M1710 I just ordered but need some advice first. Some cooling pads out there blow air up to the bottom of the laptop, and others draw air from the bottom of the laptop and exhaust the hot air to the back or sides. Can somebody tell me whether the bottom of the M1710 draws cool air in, or blows hot air out? If the M1710 draws air in, then I will get a cooling pad that blows cool air to the bottom. If the bottom of the M1710 blows out hot air, then I will get a cooling pad that draws the hot air out
