Dell :: XPS M1330 VGA Port Failure

Jan 26, 2009

I am also a M1330 owner but unfortunately, not a proud owner. I bought my laptop about one and a half year ago with one year warranty. During the first year it broke twice.

When I use my laptop at home (which is most of the time) I have it connected on a HP w1907v LCD screen. In both cases the VGA port just stopped working (initially I had some colour changes and then it stopped working).

They came and replaced my motherboard in both cases. Now I ve got the same problem again but my laptop is out of warranty.

I ll try to persuade them that they gave me a defective laptop from the start so hopefully they won't charge me (I doubt it though).

Dell :: M1330 Gpu Or Lcd Failure?

Mar 12, 2010

I have a small problem with my m1330 laptop. At some times it works perfectly, but at other times it will boot up but only a series of colours as can be seen in the image below.

I wanted first though it was a problem with the LCD, but later read that there are quite some problems with the m1330 gpu. Do you think I need a new LCD or that the GPU is to blame?

Dell :: GPU Temperature Failure M1330

Apr 12, 2010

ive been getting a vibe that my M1330 may bite the dust soon or relatively soon although its been pretty great and ive been praying that it doesnt have the issue.

Anyhow, I installed HWMonitor and basically I get temps averaging in the low-mid 70s and sometimes in the 80s. The highest it has ever gone since installing it two weeks ago was 84 C.

So at what temps exactly should I start to get worries are 70s bad?

Then my external hard drive has decided to give me corrupt errors so I cant even backup my files now ...

Dell :: 6 Month Old XPS M1330, Second GPU Failure

Mar 2, 2009

I have the M1330, T8300, LED, 4GB, 250 GB, 8400 GS. This is the second time the GPU failed(GPU failed first week of use) and there will be a technician coming later on this week.

Has anyone had success getting a replacement laptop, i.e XPS Studio 13. Seeing that I have 6 months left on the warranty and the extra 1 year for GPU issues, should I continue to get the 8400 fixed?

Have they resolved the issue with these "newly soldered motherboards"? Should I just ask to be replaced with an X3100? I don't really game, but do watch a lot of movies, especially HD rips.

Dell :: Do You Have An E-port Or E-port Plus Replicator

Apr 5, 2010

Thinking about getting one to go with my m4500 which is on order. Reviews seem ok though some complain it's bulky and other complained the release mechanism wasn't great. Worst was that someone said their comp wouldn't boot when docked.

Can anyone share experience and/or high res pics of what one looks like?

Dell :: [E6500][esata][RAID Port Multiplier] Raid 1 Enclosure Not Regnosized Using The Esata Port

Mar 5, 2009

Here's my story and, let's say, my analysis:

I bought a generic 2 HD sata2 RAID1 enclosure based on the chipset Silicon Image SteelVine 5744. It can be used in USB or eSATA2. This embedded chipset (named SiL5744) is known (understand "claimed") to auto-handle Sata I/II and host sata2 controllers that not support the port multiplier feature. The HD are two Samsung F1 1To. There's no jumper to rollback to SATA 1.5Go on them, you can only do it by flashing the HD's bios, however we don't need to do it as I wrote just before, the SiL5744 supports SATA 3Go natively.

The enclosure works pretty well with USB, but *not* in eSATA : the E6500 freezes/hangs just after the POST step (a potential driver issue with the installed vista 64bits is not the reason then). As soon has I disconnect the eSATA cable, the system recovers and continues as normal.

What I've tried/done so far :

Both E6500's BIOS SATA mode AHCI and IRRT mode were tested,
Intel Matrix driver and software was updated to the latest 8.7.0.1007 version (AHCI and IRRT),
The SiL5744 chip was upgraded to its latest firmware as well (in case of...)

In order to verify the esata cable, the HDs and the enclosure itself, I succeed to :

- Use the enclosure's RAID1 feature when using the USB connection, I could partition,format, and read/write on the logical volume
- directly connect *one* HD (Samsung F1 1To) to the E6500's esata port -(I have a sata2esata cable), Vista installed it and I was able to use it as normal, even the hotswap feature seemed to work fine (I unkindly removed it). I could so test both HD individually this way... On the enclosure hardware side, everything looks fine then.

An IMPORTANT thing : The E6500's ICH8/9-M sata host controller seems to support the Port Multiplier feature *ONLY* on sata port 0 -as a bubble message from the Intel Matrix soft sometimes shows up-, but this is exactly where the internal HD is plugged on the motherboard I found nowhere you can change the internal sata port ID (switch,bios,ect...). I think this is the key of the problem that seems to be a dumb port conflict, because the esata port is in fact the port sata 4 (the DVDRW drive is sata 1, dock's esata is 5 for instance). If somebody knows how to swap the sata port ID, I think I won't be toasted !

Dell :: M1210 CPU/GPU Failure

May 10, 2010

Has anyone had a GPU problem fixed more that one year out of warranty?

During my 1 year warranty the motherboard and CPU were replaced twice. My warranty ended in 2008

and my computer suffered from a GPU problem in 2009. After arguing with customer service for a while, Dell fixed my computer outside of warranty as a 1 time exception.

Dell :: Hardware Failure On My XPS

Jun 10, 2009

After assembelling it today, i found that when i plug it in and try to boot it up (everything hooked up correctly) the harddrive spins for 3-4 seconds with the green LED on and then it shuts down. No fans. No screen. No life?

Also when i touch the on button, the Wifi LED flashes for what feels like a millisecond. It has no BIOS or anything else installed, the battery got disconnected so i guess that means im in no mans land.

UPDATE:

Just reseated the CPU and it kind of works :/ It turns on and stays on, with the first 2 leds of power and the one to the right turning on. No fans spin and the screen is blank but atleast its turning on now... Ill fiddle some more and find out whats wrong.

UPDATE:

I entered a disk to the drive.. It spins it and seems to run. The screen (monitor) is still black however? But does this mean i can boot on the bios off a disk now?

Dell :: XPS 1640 DVD Failure

Jun 12, 2009

I purchased two XPS 1640 laptops with build dates the end of March 2009.

Recently I discovered that the DVD drives in both of them have failed. When I insert a DVD (movie, data or software) I hear a loud clicking noise and then the DVD ejects.

Since these laptops are used by my wife and son I don't know exactly when they failed but I know that I installed software on one of the first part of May and things were fine .....

Dell :: Clicking HD. Normal Or HD Failure

Jan 16, 2009

When idle, my harddrive makes a very faint clicking noise. By "clicking", I mean the same sound it makes when it is loading something... you know, that "tik tik tik" noise.

However, when idle, it tends to make little "tik" noises every 2/3 seconds or so.

Now, according to the internet, clicking means my HD is about to die... but having looked on youtube, by clicking people mean very loud clicking, like i was turning a light switch on and off...

Now I don't know. Is "access" clicking every few seconds normal? Or should i get my hd replaced??

To clarify, the clicking i am experiencing is no louder than the clicking you hear when ur HD is accessing information. If I used HDParm and play with the settings, the clicking sounds becomes almost impossible to hear and less frequent.

Dell :: Did My M1530 Card Failure

Jan 31, 2010

I know many of you have experienced premature video card death on the M1530s with 8600M GTs due to heat related failure, but I've never been sure exactly what to look for. Here's my situation-

I've had my M1530 for about a year and a half now with no serious problems to date. I game regularly and use rivatuner to overclock my card, but I also monitor temps and after I started cleaning the vents regularly and using a CPU undervolt, the max GPU temp never exceeds about 74C.

Today, I fired up my laptop for some racing online with friends (I play GTR2 and GTR Evo online), but I noticed that no matter what I did, the games wouldn't get more than 10-15 frames per second when they normally run anywhere from 35-50FPS on the settings I use, which were unchanged.

Dell :: M1530 Cooling Fan Failure?

Mar 27, 2009

I'm not sure what is going on, but I think my cooling fan may have broke inside my m1530.

A couple months ago, I was having many heating issues that I diagnosed as just the poor thermal pad application from the factory. So I undervolted my CPU and applied arctic silver 5 to the heatsink.

Everything was well at first, but in the past few weeks my comp has started running really hot again.

It will idle around 45-50 C, which is pretty good and much better than before the thermal pad change. However, under load (especially graphical) the temps go up to 90 again now.

Dell :: Could XP Install On XPS 1530 Cause HD Failure?

Sep 16, 2009

I bought my Dell XPS 1530 in Feb 09 and last month the HD died! Right after I got the system, I reformatted it and installed XP. Everything was working great until it failed.

Can somebody tell me if somehow having XP on the sytem could cause something like that.

I know it would not make any sense, but I guess I am trying to figure out, why on Earth a 7 months HD could failed.

Dell :: Hard Drive Failure[ish]? What Should I Do Now?

Oct 10, 2009

My WD 320gb hard drive failed for the first time since I got it in January by registering the error 2000 0141.

I phoned dell after it wouldn't turn on again and I reseated the drive, took out battery, powered on to discharge static etc.,

he arranged for a replacement drive to be sent on monday. after that I tried again last night and now it works., typing from it now, and no noises or anything seems to be functioning fine!

So, what should i do now?
install the new drive & all my software - real pain, but knowing new drive won't fail? did the error message mean my current drive is on the way out anyway?

Dell :: Gpu Failure After Warranty Expires?

Apr 4, 2009

Im the proud owner of an M1330, and I have been for nearly two years.
Which also happens to be the time my warranty expires...

Having recenty had my laptop repaired for the second time through gpu failure (the issue that hinders all 8-series mobibile chips) I cant help worrying that Im going to be caught out once the tide of Dell support goes out.

I have read that dell have now extended the warranty on these chips but what about people who purchased a laptop before this issue came to light?

Dell :: D430 Hard Drive Failure

Oct 8, 2008

We've got 2 D430's in house and they are awesome. One of them just had the hard drive stop working and it was confirmed by swapping drives between the two systems. These have a 2.5" proprietary connection and Dell is telling me that there is no way to access the drive to potentially recover the data since its not a standard PATA interface. It's got some really small ribbon connector on the drive that hooks into a custom connection to the D430.

Does anyone have any ideas, or familiarity with how we can get access to this drive so we can run some utilities on it? Dell seems to be of little help here and the D430 simply doesn't recognize the drive at all. I'm not sure I would have bought these systems knowing that this was a potential issue.

I'm hoping there is some know interface that will allow the drive to hook into a standard PATA connection to recover data.

Dell :: M170 Gen2GPU Failure (Bin Or Upgrade)

May 25, 2008

I've just picked up a second hand XPS170 with the 6800 Go Ultra stuffed inside. Long story short - the GPU died on me yesterday.

I've tried all number of things to bring it back, including removing and reseating the card itself. Blind flashed the rom back to stock (many thanks to zzpulp for the walkthrough!) but to no avail.

Getting no display at POST at all, even though it still boots through to XP eventually.

Question is, do I fork out for a replacement 6800 Go Ultra from DELL (about 220/$430) or do I take a serious look at the upgrade route, perhaps the M1710 path?

Dell XPS 15 L501X :: RAM Upgrade - Boot Failure

Jan 8, 2013

The last few days I've been trying to replace the 2x 2gb RAM in my XPS 15 (L501X) December 2010 laptop by 2x 4gb (Corsair CMSO8GX3M2A1333C9).

This should be possible based on the processor (Intel 460M) and the chipset, but somehow it isn't. Both with Windows 7 and Windows 8 my laptop just won't boot. Both give an error just after the Windows logo appears. Replaced it with the old 2x 2gb and it boots normally.

Loaded BIOS defaults, didn't work. Erased CMOS by removing the battery, didn't work either. BIOS is updated to latest W8 version.

Also with just 1x 4gb in one slot, the problem stays the same: laptop doesn't boot. (Also tried for the other one of course to make sure the problem is not that one of them is broken.)

Dell :: Loose USB Port

I have a Dell Studio 15 laptop and one of the USB ports on the right side of my laptop has become loose (I think it happened when I knocked it on something). Whenever I put a USB into the port I can wriggle it side to side & I can't do this with my other ports & until recently I couldn't do it with this one either.

When I put a USB into the port it isn't detected but if I push down on the casing above the port it sometimes is detected but the second I stop pushing down it's undetected again.
