Dell :: XPS1530 Replacing Battery

May 1, 2010

After two years of using my XPS1530, I received an error or reminder message that I need to replace my battery.

It's still working though, but not sure what is the side effect of not replacing the battery immediately.

Do I need to replace my battery if it's still holding more than an hour or so?

Dell Inspiron N5050 :: Won't Power On After Replacing CMOS Battery

Dec 7, 2014

Recently replaced the CMOS battery ourselves after getting the 5 beeps.  Put everything back together but a couple of screws were loose and came out.  Regardless the computer booted up fine and worked for a week.  Yesterday it would not power on, at all.   Unscrewed everything, opened it up, found some loose connections and tightened up, then replaced missing screws, seemed that they were tight and not spinning in place.  Computer powered on fine.  Next day, computer powers on again.  Then, after a brief power down, it won't come on.  AGAIN.  Opened everything back up and saw the hard drive was loose so tightened that up via external screw.  Put back together and made sure all connections were tight and re-screwed.  Still will not power on.

Apple :: Replacing Ipod Battery

Oct 3, 2009

Has anyone ever replaced their battery on their ipod? I have a 5th generation 30GB Video ipod and the battery is terrible now that it is two and a half years old. I have seen a few different websites out there that have directions and sell the batteries... I trust I can install the battery from what I have seen on the videos but I don't know if I trust the battery some of these company's are selling.

Dell :: My XPS1530 Expirences

Apr 18, 2009

I have been on this forum for quite awhile, I don't have many posts but I am always reading everything on here. OK, so on to what I posted this thread for, Just figured I would give a little intro, So it doesn't seem like im completely blind on whats going on in the laptop world.


I have had a XPS 1530 for almost a year now. At first I loved the laptop. Then I started having a problem, The fan was going out, Made a horrible clicking noise. No big deal though, After dealing with CS that you cant understand and runs you in circles trying to fix it, Got it replaced and all was fine again.

A couple months later, I was working out in the garage, and had the laptop out there looking up some exploded views for a car part I was working on. A cup of water I had on top of the bench got knocked over..I went to catch the cup, and ended up knocking the laptop off the bench and the the cup proceeded to land on it, full of water. So, The laptop was fried. Again dealing with the same CS that sucked. I was able to send the laptop in, And got it back about a week later. So that was good.

I would have thought they would have just replaced the laptop, and not tried to fix it.

Anyways, I was looking over the laptop after I got it back and wasn't pleased. The plastics on the bottom were all warped and the media button plastic piece wouldn't stay in place. And it looked like water was still behind the screen. So I turn the laptop on, And it didn't last 30 minutes before the screen went out. To me this is unacceptable.

Even if I caused the problem in the first place, Thats why I paid for the accidental warranty. I would think I could get my laptop back fixed, OR a new one. Had to jump through a bunch of hoops for the CS again,..Sent the laptop back.

I got a refurbished one back about a week later, First thing I notice is all the stickers(service tag, etc. from my original comp) were taped to the back with scotch tape.. And all falling off and ripped. Open the laptop and the space bar is bent, there are scratches on the plastic by the hinges. The black plastic for the media keys is all warped. Start the laptop up.. Dead pixels all over the screen, Or scratches in the LCD is what is really looks like. The HDD was very noisy! And if you plug headphones in, Its really fuzzy. But either way, I have dealt with this stuff for months now, I had to get a bunch of college work done. But now that that's over. The laptop has only got worse, I'm waiting for the hard drive to stop working, Its making horrible noises. And the hinges don't work well anymore, And the computer is running hot, No matter what bios or drivers I install. I still have my full warranty for about another 2 months.

Dell :: XPS1530 GPU 94C When Gaming

Mar 26, 2009

I have owned my XPS 1530 for about 8 months now. It has been quite some time since i took my original temperatures, but i remember running games like warhammer online, call of duty, etc, at a temperature of 45c idle status , and like GPU 71c under hours of gaming. I think the hottest it got was GPU 79 degrees. 8 months later i decided to try gaming again and to my surprise my laptop is getting SO hot that it burns my hands and my speedfan shows the GPU at like GPU 64 idle ( 69 when the batter adapter is in) and up to 91-95 when on a game. I used to have a zalman laptop cooler which kept my comp a bit cooler, but i only noticed it effecting my temp. by about 2-3 degrees. I am going to undervolt and get my broken zalman replaced but I need to know one thing:

Do I have defective hardware? Is it normal to see an increase in temperatures as laptops get older? I am very afraid that something is damaged. Also, is there a specific driver that i should be running which can help my graphics card cool down, or am i one of the unlucky few who have been given a bugged 8600gt.

Dell :: XPS1530 Shuts Down When Gaming

Feb 26, 2009

I have just bought a new game - dawn of war 2.

Approx 30 mins into the game the laptop just shuts down, no BSOD, just powers off. When i reboot it there is no system error saying it was a major crash or any warning telling me why.....

I have installed a heat program to record the heat on teh GPU and the CPU, at the point of crash the GPU is around 85 degrees C.

I have taken the back off the laptop and cleaned the Heatsink fan, it was pretty dusty.

Dell :: XPS1530 With WSXGA+ (1680x1050) Screen

Apr 27, 2009

I'm just awaiting delivery of my new XPS1530 with WSXGA+ (1680x1050) screen.

Looking through the archives Ive seen a lot of posts relating to problems with the Samsumng version of the screen and that the LG screen is superior.

However, a lot of the posts are at least 11 months old, so I was wondering what the state of play is now. Can I expect an LG screen or has the Sumsung screen been upgraded

Dell :: Replacing GPU In M1730

Jan 13, 2010

I am down to 1 GPU on my M1730, in the interest of replacing it , from the forum sticky these seem to be the options

XPS M1730
Nvidia 8700M (both single and SLI****)
Nviida 8800M GTX SLI
Nvidia 9800M GT SLI
Nvidia 9800M GTX SLI

(I assumme this list is complete still . i.e. no 260's or 280's available)

Other than Dell or EBay are there any other sites , suppliers that people know of who might supply one of the above

DELL want 340 + Vat for a sli 8700m and there is every so often a 8800M for sale on ebay but they typically want approx 500 pounds for it (anyone had experience of buying one?)

I am dubious about the 8800 as evidence suggests it runs hot so would prefer a cheap 8700m or a warrentied 9800M

Dell :: Replacing An SXPS 16 HDD

Jun 30, 2009

I buy the SXPS 16 with a 4670 the minute it is released in Canada and configure it to as closely to my current config as possible.

When it comes in, I manually swap the HDDs from my current SXPS 16 to the new one.

Would this allow me to get around installing Windows and all my programs? Once I swap the HDDs and turn on the new laptop, will it boot up as if it was the old one, but with newer hardware?

And I'd just like to vent my frustration that I can't order the SXPS with the 4670 and a T9800/T9900 in Canada yet

Dell :: Replacing HD In 1645 With A SSD?

Oct 20, 2009

I'm under the impression that the Studio XPS 1645 will be using a similar, if not identical, chassis to the 1640. Given that, how easy is it to replace the hard drive with a SSD?

I didn't bother with a SSD option on account of the price, but once the price comes down a bit I'm hoping to replace the drive and use the existing drive externally.

How much of a headache is this and what should I be aware of with regard to known SSD issues,

Dell :: Replacing My Laptop

Oct 5, 2009

Well the worst happened and my trusted Dell M1710 powerhouse that I've had for several years was dropped into a tub of water. I've got the complete care warranty so I called Dell to get a replacement unit.

Well after waiting a little over a week Dell agreed to send me a replacement unit; however, since the Dell XPS M1710 is no longer in stock they're going to send me a Dell Studio XPS 16.

I was wondering if everyone here thought that was a fair trade or an upgrade?

Dell :: Replacing Headphone Jacks

Jun 12, 2009

One of my headphone jacks on my M1530 is broken and needs to be replaced. Are those part of a separate board that can be hooked into the motherboard without the need of any soldering? I'd like to get this issue fixed, and don't want to send it into dell depot for repair. So if it's just a board that needs to be replaced, I'd like to replace it myself. If so, what would the name of this board be? I haven't had much luck looking through the forum or online.

Dell :: Replacing The Wireless Adapter

Sep 29, 2008

I have a M1530, with the Dell 1505 Wireless N card installed.

To say the least, it is probably the worst card I have ever seen, getting no more than 6Mb/s on internal transfers (basically wireless G speeds) even though connecting at 130Mb/s.

I have a Dlink Extreme N DIR-655 router and it is pretty good, so I know it isn't that.

Looking at PCMIA cards on the internet, I suddenly realized that there is no expansion port on this system (or I am just stupid and can't see it), so I have to go with an internal card.

Is there anything I should be looking for when getting the new card? Are they easy to install?

Dell :: Studio 15 Replacing LCD Cover

Nov 9, 2008

I just got my hands a Studio 15 with great specs at the cheap, but with a pretty badly scratched up LCD lid. Has anyone attempted replacing the lid? Is it hard? I've opened up and replaced a processor, keyboard, fingerprint reader, ram, and hard drive before, but never an LCD cover. I'm kinda worried about the power button and wifi catcher, and I'm worrying I may not put the screen back the right way. This is supposed to be for my cousin, but I can't give it this badly scratched up.
