Dell XPS 15 L502x :: Will Not Duplicate Displays - Will Only Extend

Jan 29, 2012

I plugged my HDMI cable into the computer today with the intention of duplicating the display on to my TV.  When I do this the TV screen shows like I selected extend.  I can extend the monitor and use the projector only setting, but duplicating does not work.  I changed the Intel Graphics Options and the NVIDIA Control panel neither have worked.  I have updated the bios, the NVIDIA and the Integrated drivers.  I have even changed the resolution on both my computer and the TV with no fix.

What's the weirdest thing about this problem is that I have used this exact HDMI cable to this exact TV before and I didn't need to change a single setting and it worked great.  I also took an ASUS laptop and plugged it in and used the FN + screen key, just like I would usually do with my Dell and the ASUS worked great.

I read a post on here that said when they update their BIOS it fixed this problem, although the post had other people that were not that lucky.

Dell :: Duplicate Laptops Sent

Mar 5, 2009

Has anyone else had duplicate laptops for one order sent?

Now, this is the story. My old Inspirion died so I decided to buy a new one, 1525. I ordered it on the 12 February and was told it would be delivered by the 28 February.

On the 17th I am sent an email saying parts to my laptop aren't available - minor parts, the colour I wanted and the free bag colour. I check the online status and it has gone from Shipped from Factory to cancelled on the 19th.

I call Dell to ask why they cancelled my order without telling me, they tell me someone will call me back. No one does.

I get an email on 23rd February saying that my laptop has been upgraded due to parts not being available, 250GB hard drive from 160, Windows Office (never ordered it!), red instead of brown and it will be manufactored asap. A new order number is generated and everything.

On the 24th, my original laptop order is delivered to my work. With both the laptop colour and bag I ordered that apparenetly wasn't available.

On the 28th, I get an email saying the 2nd laptop is shipped. I am away so can't call them so I email them requesting they do not send it. However this second laptop was delivered on 2 March. I call Dell, they don't believe me and according to them the 1st laptop does not exist. They say they will call me back. They don't. However on 4 March, courier calls me to organise a date for the pickup.

I receive an email that day when I get home with a third order, I look at the order status, its the same as the second laptop. I get an email today, the 6th, saying its shipped from the factory.

Everyone I've talked to at Dell do not think my first laptop exists and I can't understand why they are sending me this third one. I don't know what to do, no one at customer service listens to me. There has been only one charge on my credit card.

My 1year basic warranty will expire this June 2009, do i need to extend it more for 1 or 2years because of what happen to my HDD? I'm thinking of keeping this laptop until 2012

Acer :: Aspire 1410 Duplicate Model #- AC Adapter

Dec 19, 2009

I recently picked up a nice 1410, the 12" version. Looking around on Acer's site it appears they used this name in the past for a 14" laptop as well? Is the new 1410 the laptop people are discussing in the other threads with the Timeline?

The primary reason I ask is because I'd like to buy another AC adapter off Ebay, and it seems many that come up for the 1410 may be for the old laptop. Is there some other model or part number I should be searching for?

HP Envy X2 :: Keys Randomly Repeat / Duplicate While Typing

Jan 30, 2015

I just bought the Envy 2x 13 Detachable a few weeks ago. I've had issues with the keyboard from day one. 
 
Keys will randomly repeat themselves which makes typing anything, especially passwords, a nightmare. I've corrected that last sentence about 6 times for duplicate characters.
 
The following sentence will be typed with no corrections:
 
This keyboard liikes to dupplicate letters inn a totally randoom fashion and I never knnow when it will happpen it just does it.
 
I saw a thread where BIOS Rev F.08 solved these issues. I have Rev F.06. When I try to install that BIOS I get a message that there was a BIOS read error and it closes.
 
This is getting VERY frustrating. I've tried adjusting the repeat rate in control panel with NO effect.

Dell :: No Surprises With My 1640 Yet -- Should I Extend My Warranty?

Apr 6, 2010

I've owned my second hand Studio XPS 1640 for less than a month, but in that time I've experienced no issues whatsoever.

In your experience, what is the likelihood that something will go wrong beyond the first year of use,

given that nothing has so far? There are 4.5 months left of the 12 months in the warranty period.

I usually go for extending the warranty, but given that the cheapest option for this notebook is $199 Canadian per year, I need to think it over.

Dell :: How To Do 3 Displays With The E6400?

Aug 12, 2009

Up until this week I was doing this with my Dell D620 using the PD01X D/Dock which has a PCI slot for a video card.

Well, it's PC refresh time at work and I received a Dell E6400. Turns out the docks for the E6400 and the D-series are different (not compatible) and there is no D/Dock for the E6400, so now I'm looking for a solution that will allow me to do 3 displays with the E6400.

I purchased StarTech's USB2DVIE external USB to DVI video card, but it's only got 16MB of RAM and whenever I scroll or move windows around in the display that is being driven by the USB2DVIE, it's a little choppy, even at 16-bit color.

There are other external USB video cards on the market, but this was one of the most expensive, and I can find no indication on any of the other cards of how much RAM they have. I'm thinking I need at least 64MB, which is what the PCI card had that I was using in the D/Dock with the D620.

Dell :: Type Of Displays In Studio 1537

Apr 24, 2009

I indent to get a dell studio 1537, but the shop where I want to buy it doesn't specify which kind of display it has.

Also their tech support is to dumb to get the info from anywhere else except their own page. (they provided a link to the 1555 model to get the resolution from there... duh).

http://www.emag.ro/notebook_laptop/n...32WNHD345T3BRD

My questions are, what resolutions are in the 1537 ? I want one with 1440x900 so, is there the posibility to get a 1280x800 one ? or all the 1537 and ATI 3450 come with at least 1440x900 .....

Dell :: External Displays Stopped Working

Mar 3, 2010

I have a Dell Inspiron 1520 with an Nvidia 8600gt. I have a dell 2409 24 inch 1920 x 1080 monitor and a Samsung 22inch 1680x1050 LCD TV. I use one or the other depending what room I'm in. Both are connected using VGA cables.

These have always worked perfectly, today when I tried plugging into either one they are detected as 'generic non pnp monitor' and I get a choice of standard resolutions up to 1600 x 1200. These always used to run at their native resolutions and were detected as Samsung and Dell.

I have reinstalled the display drivers, power cycled everything, gpu seems to be running fine according to gpu-z.

I have reverted to a working backup but that made no difference. Im using windows 7 64bit.

However, my main issue is would it be able to drive my 2 Dell 3007WFP-HC displays?..

I am aware that the Studio XPS 16 has a HDMI and DisplayPort built it.. Provided I am able to get all the conversion cables, could this laptop drive my 2 30" monitors at their native (2560 x 1600) resolution?..

Dell XPS M1530 :: Stuck On Bios Screen That Displays Logo

Apr 21, 2013

I have a XPS M1530 that has seen very little use but unfortunately won't boot now.  It is stuck on the bios screen that displays the dell logo - the progress bar on this page only displays about 15% complete and will not progress any further under any circumstances.  I have performed the diagnostic boot option of holding down the <FN> key before power on and this displays just the caps lock flashing rapidly - the flashing does not halt.  The other diagnostic lights (scroll and num lock) remain unlit except at the initial boot they flash once as per normal.

As dell has not published the diagnostic codes. The laptop is "as new" if a few years old now and I would like to keep it for sometime to come - the purchase price at the time was ~£1300.  One reason I bought dell was for the after sales care - I understand there have been various issues with this particular series of laptop which is unfortunate but I am hopeful to get it working again at reasonable cost.
