Dell :: XPS 1640 Internal Speakers Not Working
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

Dell :: XPS M1710 Speakers Suddenly Stopped Working
I have a Dell XPS M1710 laptop, and up until maybe two weeks ago my in-built speakers had been working perfectly fine.

When I tried using them again this week, I noticed the speakers stay absolutely quiet and don't make any sounds. However, if I plug in a headset on the onboard soundcard jack the sounds work fine.

I have had this laptop with me on multiple trips but afaik this happened during one, so is it possible that something has disconnected inside the laptop itself or is it maybe a common bug with these laptops?

Dell :: XPS 1645: Catalyst Stopped Working
I have a vague idea that it has something to do with my ATI drivers?

I get the message right after I log in. I can access my desktop and the Internet, but the taskbar with the programs at the top is missing.

When I go to Explorer, my laptop also can't find any of my libraries (documents, pictures, etc.).

Anyone else has experienced a similar problem? It happened yesterday...

Dell :: Internal Speakers Not Working
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.

HP/Compaq :: Dv6000 Speakers Not Working
The speakers on my laptop are not working. The weird thing is the sound works when I plug in my headphones in either headphone jack (so that's good news, I suppose). But when I unplug the headphones, no sound.

Here's the thing; you know those media buttons that make that little beep whenever you touch any of them? Well, they work fine (volume up and down, mute, DVD and QuickPlay), but no beep sound from them either!

HP/Compaq :: HP Dv7-2000, No Sound From Speakers Of Headphones, Only Subwoofer Working
Bought a new dv7-2000, custom built. Nothing spectacular

As soon as I received it, I formated the drive and installed Windows XP Pro SP3. So far so good. All drivers installed, everything working.

Except for one little detail : I have sound on subwoofer only, no speaker, not even on headphones, no matter what jack I plug in. Sub does turn off when I plug the headphones though.

I tried several IDT drivers, all act the same.

Dell :: Studio XPS 13 Speakers
Is it just me, or are the speakers on the SXPS13 very, very quiet? The max volume is on this thing is inadequate. I'm forced to use headphones.

Has anyone else had a problem with this? Is there anything to be done about it?

Dell :: Speakers Cracking? Xps 1340
I bought an xps 1340 and just received it. I was streaming some music off youtube today and my left speaker was cracking when playing the song Roses by outkast.

I played the exact same video on my desktop and it played without any problems.

I called dell and they had me play a cd (don't have an outkast cd) and the speakers seemed to play fine. Once i played the CD, the dell representative just told me it is a software issue. But how could a software issue only affect 1 speaker(the left one)?

Dell :: Do All Studio XPS 16 Have Unbalanced Left And Right Speakers
Is there any Studio XPS 1640 users out there who gets perfectly balanced sounds from their left and right speakers?

My right speaker's volume is louder by default. Yes, I can adjust the balance using one of Windows' sound configuration screen, but it's annoying to have it reconfigured back whenever I plug a headphones.

Dell :: XPS 1530 Remote In The XPS 1645?
it looks like my XPS 1645 didn't come with a media remote like my old 1530 did. Is it possible to use the remote in the 1645?

It looks like the SXPS does have an IR receiver so I would think that it would be, but I'm not sure what sort of software I would need or how that would work.

Dell :: Waiting For My XPS 1645

The online status still shows it as pre-production and the two numbers I called say being processed/pre-prod/building plus the chat is no different.

I really hope there is no delay. I want my laptop

Dell :: Studio XPS 1645
I generally use my computer each day, and if I close the lid at night without shutting the computer off, in the morning the computer will be off.

That wouldn't be a bad thing except many times it'll shut the computer off so I lose everything that was opened up. But the only weird thing is that it won't happen every time.

I was just wondering if any of you have this problem and if there was some setting that I overlooked each time when I looked to change that. It's not a big thing, but I had a Dell computer provided by school and it would still be on in the morning after using it at night...........................

Dell :: Bricked XPS 1645
Less than a month after receiving my 3rd replacement system from dell, I experienced strange problem... I couldn't adjust the screen brightness anymore, altought the quickset was showing movement, the brightness was constantly at max. So I get into dell tech support chat, explain the problem and the guy send me a link to a program that would grand him access to my machine.

He login and start installing some drivers... chipset and etc. He try to flash my bios but i stop him even before downloading it and told him that he will not do that on my laptop. Then he said that he needs to restart the system and this should fix everything. I said ok .....

Dell :: XPS 1645 Drive Image
I have spent two plus days searching thread after thread and I am not getting anywhere! If someone could point me in the right direction I would appreciate it. I just got my 1645 yesterday and what I want to do is to remove the hard drive and put it into my desktop and create an image. I will be formatting the drive removing all three partitions and install another OS. Later on down the road I want to be able to reimage my drive with the original backup. I do not want to clone the drive as I will be using it... I have tried Drive Image and it successfully makes a backup image and when I use it to image another drive the 'OS' & 'Recovery' partitions are fine, and the computer even boots into Windows. But when I use F8 to access the repair console I get a '0xc000000e' error. All of the information I find is somewhat outdated and refers to the period when Dell used Mediadirect.

Dell :: XPS 1645 Random Shut Off
My Dell XPS 1645 [see sig for specs] will random shut off on me. I will be doing anything from watching a movie, listening to music, or just browsing and it will random shut off. They are like days apart but It shut off 3 times on my today :S.

These shut offs are not Temperature related as In BOTH Windows and Ubuntu it has shut off and I have been monitoring temperature in both, with log files so I can check the temperature @ shut off time.

I live in Jamaica and it would be kind of hard for me to just send it in to have it looked at. I'm hoping the next BIOS revision along with fresh installs of both OS's will do the trick.

Dell :: Ok To Use 6 Cell Battery With XPS 1645?
I recently ordered a Dell Studio XPS 1645. By default it came with the 9 cell battery. I also ordered an additional 6 cell battery for it.

Is it ok to use the 6 cell battery with this laptop? Obviously the battery won't last as long, but will the laptop run ok? I'm asking because my laptop is going to be plugged in on my desk most of the time and the 6 cell keeps the laptop flat.

Dell :: XPS 1645 And Soundblaster X-Fi MB- Anyone Got These Drivers?

There are no Soundblaster X-Fi MB drivers or software available for the XPS 1645 and the ones for the 1640 won't install.

Can someone here with a factory installed Windows 7 Ultimate x64 with Creative Labs Sound Blaster X-Fi MB go into the C:

Dell :: Confused -S-XPS 1645 Related
Just spent an Hour on the phone with a dell rep today and its got me pulling my hair out and i'm really confused..

Basically, one of the USB ports, in my XPS-1645 does not work .(the port right next to the microphone jack).

The other two work fineThis was the case right from the time it got delivered to me which was on 12th December.

After troubleshooting, it was clear that the USB port wasn't going to magically start working and the guy gave me the option of getting the part replaced, a full unit replacement or a refund.

The last two options run out on 12th January
Now i'm in a dilemma as to whether to ask for a full unit replacement or just the part, as i will have to wait another 15-40 days to get a new laptop for which time ill be stuck without a laptop .....

Dell :: Studio XPS 1645 Keyboard
I'm currently having some issues with the keyboard. It seems as if the two rows with Y and U are not responding.

Even from the Dell test thing. It happened that it would stop working for a short time, then work again and now it stop working again. It was intermittent and would always come back but now... I'm wondering will it ever come back?

What could I do? It's only 2 months old and I am out of the country, so I can't call support now. Could I make my warranty effective on other country?

I left it off power yet when I went to start it up the screen didn't come on! The side light is constantly white when plugged in, and an external monitor works perfectly fine. Is there anything I can do to troubleshoot this issue? I there any button I could have pressed to cause this problem? Or is a call with dell my only answer?

*UPDATE* Issue resolved by buckZor: Shutdown gracefully, disconnect power. Remove battery. Wait 3 minutes. Plug battery back in & power, open and boot. Display light up?

Dell :: XPS 1645 Keyboard Backlight Leakage
Th backlit keyboard on my XPS 1645 leaks a lot of light, which is quite annoying in dimly lit environments.

In my case it is mostly the upper row of keys, but other individual keys have the same problem. As not all keys have this problem I assume it is not a design feature.

Is anyone else experiencing this same issue? I have done a search on the forum, but couldn't find anything related.

The bottom line is that this laptops are not worthy to buy!

1. Throttling Issue (No real fix so far)
2. Random freezing (Speculations about driver fix)
3. Brightness control stops working randomly (remove batery to fix)
4. Sub-buffer rattles (nobody knows why)
5. Stereo leaks between left and right (no fix)
6. System runs extremely hot (1645 a little bit less than 1640)

All-in-all nice looking and feature complete laptop with a lot of issues.
