Is it possible to add internal bluetooth to the 14z after the fact? If so, what is the part needed to do this? While we're at it, what about wireless N?
Backstory - Ordered my laptop early December, took delivery mid December. I'm thrilled with the product except for the fact that it doesn't have bluetooth. I thought I had chosen that option, but upon looking at my invoice it appears I didn't. I went back through the customize engine on Dell's website and interestingly enough, I don't see anywhere you can choose bluetooth. Searched their parts website with no luck. Searched Google with no luck. So I tried to email Dell customer service. 3 weeks later, they finally told me to email/call tech support. So I called tech support yesterday. They told me that the wireless and bluetooth internal options are integrated onto the motherboard and have to be specified at the time of order. The only solution she could give me was to return the laptop and re-order it. The problem I voiced with that was that there isn't any way to specify bluetooth (or wireless N for that matter) on the customize page on Dell's website. Of course, she said she couldn't help with that and I needed to go back to customer service. Obviously, I was pretty irate (no cussing though! I kept my cool, but made it obvious I was upset) and she gave me a line that CS's lines were down and I needed to call them back in an hour.
So before I call CS, I'd like to try to get some more information. If you guys can help, I'd really appreciate it. Otherwise, I'm about ready to tell them to send a call tag send this thing back simply based on how terrible their after the sale service has been.
to mount the second hard drive on this laptop: http://accessories.us.dell.com/sna/p...88&lid=1022058 The problem is that Dell doesn't seem to sell it in Ireland. Is there any way I can get it? Is there an alternative adapter to connect a sata drive to the connector present on the laptop?
Today I was going through the online documentation of my Dell XPS 1530 laptop and found that there are various slots and mini cards in it ,some of which are lying unused .
Some good techie person please kindly answer my following queries :
1) SIM Card slot :What is this slot and how to use it ?Is this SIM slot included in all XPS 1530 laptops when delivered ?
2)Wireless Mini Cards :What is difference between WLAN,UWB and WWAN ?Which of these technology is present in India ? If none, then which of these technologies is likely to hit Indian market first ?Which of the above technologies is the best ?
Is there 2 slots for another hard drive? If so is it easy to open it up to put another in?
Another question is, I have 4gb ram but it seems 1GB is being shared for the video memory, it already has 512mb dedicated which is plenty for me (its the 9600GT card), how do I unshare it? There seems to be no option at all in the bios.
One final question, what is the max ram this laptop is allowed?
Does the onboard card reader in my my 13-p111 nr X2 notebook (Win 8.1) support SDXC cards in one or both slots (standard and micro)? Win 8.1 supports the file system, but my 64GB micro sd card is not being recognized in the onboard slot, making me think that the card reader hardware may not support that format. If the onboard reader does not , should the notebook still recognize a 64GB SDXC card in a USB card reader stick?
I've looked in the service manual for this X2 notebook and it is not specific about SD 0r SDHC or SDXC support. Where can I find detailed system specs for this machine?
i bought a AT&T wireless usb plug that fits perfectly and works great...Then i bought the highly rated logitech vx nano wireless mouse which comes with a tiny usb plug which could be left in the usb slot...So whats the problem?? both devices cant fit at the same time [/i][/b]on the laptop becuase there is not enough space for the both usb plugs to be occupied. Is there a solution to this?? Are there any adapters that I can use which will allow either one (Preferably the ATT wireless) to be plugged into another slot on the Macpro?
I have a problem with my dell e1705 laptop. I was trying to set up an external monitor, after installing the drivers that came with the monitor i couldn't get the laptops internal monitor to start back up. I tried restarting with the external monitor unplugged but the laptops screen just glows with no picture. can anyone tell me how to enable my internal monitor? Only the external monitor shows up when i try to switch displays in the nvidia controlpanal.
New thread to satisfy people. I don't know why it makes a difference whether a thread is new or old.
I have a Dell E1505 running XP. The headphone jack works but the internal computer speakers do not. Here's what I know:
(1) it's not the speakers. I've swapped an identical set of working speakers. (2) it doesn't appear to be a software or driver problem. My settings look identical to those of another E1505, and I have tried re-installing drivers several times.
So I have been talking to the customer care representatives of Dell and they keep giving me different answers for my questions. So I was hoping I could have a more constructive discussion here without being put on hold for hours -_-
1. My E7440 came with a SSD. Can I add a second internal HDD along with the the SSD?
2. If yes, would buying it from a different vendor (say Amazon) and installing it myself void my warranty?
I have a standard internal HDD and a secondary HDD in the optical disk drive bay.The BIOS reports them as HDD (internal) and ODD (drive bay). What does ODD mean? Now in the Boot section the terms are:
•Hard Drive - shows my internal HDD. My secondary HDD does not appear here.
•CD/DVD/CD-RW Drive - is the optical drive. BUT as my secondary HDD is in the optical drive bay will this boot the secondary HDD?
•USB Storage Device - assume this refers to the USB ports
•Removable Drive - what is this? What boots from this?
•eSATA - assume it boots when an eSATA drive when attached
Finally. I know you can move the priority of boot options up and down BUT can you disable options? Eg. if you want to force a boot from a second drive - how can you disable the internal drive? (which you can do on many BIOSes)
Just installed Skype and have spent the last hour trying to get the internal mic to work and failed. It's a Vista 64 install and I've installed the latest sigmatel drivers for Vista 64 from the Dell website. Appears to have installed fine. I can see the microphone array and sigmatel codec under sound options, and the speakers are working fine, however the mic just refuses to work (sound recorder, skype etc all don't work)
I've got a Dell XPS 1640. My internal speakers don't work with itunes and most other applications. However, when I ran the Dell diagnostics, sound was produced. Dell tech support told me that its a software problem because there was sound in the diagnostic test.
They checked the drivers etc which are current and recommended that I reformat back to factory settings which is a major hassle. I'm running Vista 64 bit, but do have a Windows 7 update disk which I haven't installed yet. They told me that installing the Windows 7 update wouldn't fix the problem. I've read about disabling IDT (which I've tried) wiggling the inputs e
Does anyone know if the internal Bluetooth card that slots into the underneath compartment on old Dell Inspiron's (like the i9300) uses a USB connection?
What I mean by that is, if I were to chop the plug off the end of the connector cable and replace it with a female usb socket, would I be able to run any USB device off it? I need an extra usb socket for a pretty extreme casemod I'm doing at the moment and it ideally (definitely!) needs to be on the underside of the laptop.
