Some arsehole on ebay sold me a quadro with a busted connector and refused to refund. I had no idea about the 60 day policy so i was overly patient in waiting for my refund until it was too late.
Anyway, the quadro was intended to replace a 7800go that died some time ago. Is it possible to solder the connector from the dead card onto the quadro? i don't have the skills but i live in thailand and [reasonably skilled] labor is cheap.
Well, as you might know I had my notebook repaired 4 times by now.
This time they replaced the Motherboard and the Palmrest because I was getting electro shocks from my notebook.
Anyways, once the Notebook booted up I noticed that there is no more Dell logo anymore. Just some Numbers and it says something about Phoenix Bios. Next thing is that the notebook also turns on when I insert the AC Cable, I dont even have to press the Power Button.
I ordered a Dell Prcision M4400 mobile workstation on April 27th. It is now MAY 27th and I STILL don't have my computer!
Every week, on the day the order is scheduled to ship, the shipping date is suddenly shifted one more week away. So far, this has happened to me 4 times!
When I call Dell they always assure me that such-and-such is the ship date, but then, yet again, the ship date is delayed another week. It doesn't matter if I explain what has been happening - they just repeat back like a parrot that the system says that it will ship on such-and-such a date.
I can see that for myself on the website! What I wanted was some kind of an explaination for the ridiculous delays and some kind of an assurance that I'll be getting my computer sometime within the current epoch
i've had this issue a little more frequently lately, both in vista and ubuntu and i think it's a hardware issue. after putting the computer to sleep (vista) or suspend (ubuntu), upon wake up, the display does not come on, keyboard and mouse are unresponsive....
I need a notebook for outside in the sun use. Between 14"-16" that has a very BRIGHT screen. I've tried the Envy 15 w/Matte and it's too dim. Would you recommend the new EliteBook 8540w or 8440w? Do these have really bright screens that are good for outside use? I need good battery life too.
Laptop is on and plugged into the docking station which is "powered". Connection to monitor / keyboard and mouse is fine, however I'm surprised to see a lower power - plug is soon message. Isn't docking station supposed to provide power to the laptop?
A friend of mine has an HP Pavilion ze4420us laptop and seems to have a problem. When his computer starts up the screen is reduced in size so that all you can see is a 6"x6" area that's using the screen. Everything is displayed normally inside this "box". Once windows loads it's fine though.
some manufactures have a "Fn+key" or "shift+key" type of shortcut that will change an internal setting and enlarge or reduce the picture being displayed.
Dell Truemobile bluetooth connector on the motherboard just appears to be a USB port.
What I wanted to do was use a generic bluetooth module and wire it to the Dell Truemobile bluetooth connector but I need the pinouts. There seems to be 10 pins but on USB there is only 4.
I have an Latitude X300 and disassembled the laptop entirely looking for a contact points for a possible USB connection on the motherboard. I thought there would be some because there are many USB hubs listed in device manager but only 2 ports on the actual laptop itself, but I couldn't find any so I am trying to work with the Truemobile connector.
I just picked up an EX5630. It didn't come with BT which I would like to add. It has an 8pin connector for the BT module. Reading around a little it looks like this connector is no more then a USB port. 4 pins are for the USB port, 2 pins for the LED and 2 pins for the BT switch. Can anyone confirm this? If this really is just a USB port I would like to build a custom cable that runs from this port into a very small two port USB hub which I will mount inside the laptop. There is a perfect space inside to do this. Then I will rig the BT module to one of the ports on the hub and use the other port for my wireless mouse dongle. It would be so nice to not have to plug in the dongle anymore and get BT at the same time.
I am very happy with this laptop so far. Well, after wiping and reloading Vista on it. It looks like it had a ton of BS preinstalled. I had to boot it up long enough to snag the tokens.dat file and I had to acknowledge 700 popups along the way.
take apart my 5920g to check if the keyboard ribbon needs replacing or if the connecter has come loose. Ive googled big time trying to find a guide with pics etc. Could someone help as im currently in afghan trying to keep in touch with the wife (im a brit soldier) when I can, using my laptop. The dead keys are - b,n,h,y,u,7,8. So I cant really talk properly on msn etc.
Im using the on screen keyboard to help write this message!
On my HP DV5-1015TX I notice that there are 2 audio out jacks in the front.
However my speakers have only connector that I plug into either one of these. This works but I am am wondering if there would be any loss of audio quality when used this way (maybe surrond sound or something)? OR is the second audio-out an extra connection to say headphones?
I am comparing this against the connector in the 2510P to see if there could be a possibility of retrofitting the 2730P connector to obtain a SATA output. The 4200RPM ZIF drive in the 2510P is ultraslow and ZIF (PATA) alternatives in SSD or 5400rpm HDD form are poor value for money. micro SATA is the way to go..
Found the HP Media Library has systemboard pictures. The 1.8" drive connectors for 2510P, 2730P and 2530P are here:
Though it is somewhat difficult to make out the 2730P 24-pin socket. Can anyone take a photo of it and link on here? Here's the one for the 2510p . More pics at [url]
We can see that the 2510P ZIF socket is very different to the 2730P systemboard connector. BUT! There is the unused 24-pin socket on the 2510P that looks remarkably similar to the 2730P 24-pin SATA connector. Could this be used to provide SATA on the 2510P?...........
