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.

Here is my existing RAM : 3GB, DDR2, 667MHz 2 Dimm, and HDD: 250G 7200RPM SATA Hard Drive

Dell :: XPS1530 Replacing Battery

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 :: 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 :: Firewire Card

Apr 20, 2009

I have a Dell Inspiron E1705 that I purchased a few years ago. I am taking it with me on vacation in June. I plan to bring my camcorder along as well.

The problem is while my desk top has a firewire card for transfering video from the camera to the computer, the laptop does not. So I will have n way right now to make any transfers.

Is it possible to add a firewire card to my Dell after market or is there another option I'm not aware of?

Dell :: M1530 BSOD When Using Firewire

Apr 6, 2009

I'm having a problem with a Firewire Audio card when recording from a MIDI input. It works okay for a few seconds,

then i get the dreaded BSOD - I haven't had time to look through the dump file yet, but the thread ks.sys is mentioned.

I've had a look about, and I think the problem is something to do with the ASIO4All driver I installed (and subsequently uninstalled) OR how the IRQs are set up in windows.

Dell :: Computer Noise Coming Through Firewire

Jul 13, 2007

I have got a Dell 9300 that I've been using for recording for a while. I've recently gotten a new external audio interface, a Presonus Firestudio that I connect to the Firewire port on the 9300. I'm getting digital noise coming through the Firestudio from the 9300 through the Firewire port. The noise, ie. chirping, clicking and popping, happens when you move your mouse or resize a window.

I've tried running the interface into the computer using a PCMCIA to FW adapter and running it into the cardbus slot. That has reduced the noise some, but has not eliminated it.

I don't remember getting this noise always, but I certainly have been dealing with it for a while. The noise isn't recorded so I can record just fine, it's just noisy when I'm monitoring.

Sony :: Is S400 Same As Firewire

Jan 14, 2009

I have the TZ series laptop. It has a S400 port. I also have a Sony external DVD/RW optical drive that only has an S400 port (the optical drive was meant for the UX series per the Sony website). I understand that it's almost the same as firewire1394, but you need to hook up devices that are powered (which is fine since my external optical drive has it's own AC plug).

Can I just buy a regular firewire 1394 cable or do I need a special S400 cable from Sony to hook up the DVD to my TZ?

HP/Compaq :: Firewire HDX16t

Sep 16, 2009

I'm having a problem connecting my video camera to my HDX. The port itself seems to work as I was able to connect my external hard drive to it and it was found.

It's not the camera as I hooked it up to a different PC's firewire port and it was found. Not the cable either.

Acer :: Firewire On Aspire 5920

Sep 2, 2008

I've conected two mini dv camcorders (Sony HC-37E & JVC GR-D70EK) to my brand new Acer Aspire 5920, via firewire, & none of them are 'seen' by vista home premium and therefore don't work.

Both cam's work on an Acer desktop running vista home basic.

One thing I have noticed is that the firewire reported on the desktop is Texas instruments (whereas the laptop reports RICOH).

Apple :: Why Do Almost All Macs Now Have One Firewire Port

Dec 15, 2009

Especially in the circumstances of video editing and digitizing. What is the process that people would do now?

Would they put the camera in the firewire nd then capture via USB of the external hard drive and then put the firewire for the hard drive after capturing and on to editing?

Why is it that it seems only the Mac Pro is the only Mac that now has more than one fire wire port?
