Dell :: Inspiron 1440 And Studio 1440?

Jul 20, 2009

I just realized that both the new Inspiron 14 and Studio 14z are numbered as the "1440". Usually Dell avoids duplicating the model number- Inspiron 1525, Studio 1535, Inspiron 1545, Studio 1555, etc.

Dell :: Studio 14z 1440 Disassembly And Bluetooth

Jan 9, 2010

I thought I'd post this in a new thread instead of replying to my other one since the disassembly pictures could be helpful to people.

Right off, in my other thread I mentioned that Dell told me there were 2 rev's of motherboards (one if you order through the Home portal and a different one if you order through the Small Biz portal), and that the Home rev doesn't support Bluetooth (or WWAN, which is why these things didn't show up for me as options when ordering the laptop). So this morning I took the thing apart to see for myself.

Conclusion - From what I can tell, it appears that any 14z has a full size mini-PCI slot (for WWAN), a half-height mini-PCI slot (for wireless networking), and the mini plug necessary to install the Dell Wireless 365 Bluetooth mini-card. Dell support is a bunch of morons.

Steps to disassemble:

1) Remove battery. Here is what the computer looks like with the batter removed.

2) Remove keyboard trim ring. This is totally held in by plastic snaps (yuk...I seem to have an easy time breaking these if not careful). If you flip the laptop upside down and look under where the battery goes, you can see a could of little tabs that show through. You can use a small flathead screwdriver to pop these loose from the backside.

Then flip the laptop keyboard up and carefully work your way around the rest of the trim ring until you have it totally loose.

Dell :: Adding A Bluetooth Card Into M1530?

Jan 20, 2010

I've searched the forum and found a service diagram on installing the bluetooth card into the M1530 notebook. My question is, I never choose to have it put in by dell, so I know I need to purchase the card and I'm going to guess that the cable will need to be purchased as well.

Dell :: Can Anyone Speak For The Inspiron 1440

Aug 1, 2009

I'm debating whether to get the Inspiron 1440 or the Studio XPS 1340.

Can anyone speak for the build quality of the new Inspiron 1440?
I like the magnesium alloy chassis and sturdy backlit keyboard on the SXPS 13, but it will cost me about $200 more when configured to similar specs.

This laptop will be my main PC when I leave for school: which means it needs to be light/small/durable enough to carry into classes everyday, with the power and adequate cooling to use as a desktop replacement as well.

I don't want any significant flexing and cracking sounds (which many consumer-grade black/silver plastic chassis laptops have) when picking it up around the edges.

These are the configurations I came up with in which the Inspiron costs about $200 less than the SXPS:

Inspiron 1440: P8600, 4GB DDR2-800MHz, 900p LED, 320GB 5400RPM, GMA4500MHD
SXPS 1340: P8600, 4GB DDR3-1067MHz, CCFL, 320GB 7200RPM, GF 9400M

Dell :: Inspiron 1440 Wireless

Mar 25, 2010

My daughters 1440 works online for about 15min and then it loses connection to the router and wont show any available wireless networks,

I won't work until I reset the system and then it works for about 15 min again.I reinstalled the wireless driver and even tried to restore it to a few weeks before it started doing that but still does it.

Could the wireless card be bad? Has anyone had this problem before? Does anyone know which card is in there an ho to get to it?

Dell :: Inspiron 1440 Video Card

Dec 20, 2009

I've just received a 1440 as a system exchange. Mine has the Intel graphics. Is it safe to assume that the Intel graphics are integrated into the MOBO? The 1440 is apparently available with an ATI 512MB card.

I'm guessing there is no chance I could pick one up and stick it in this thing?

It still shocks me that I have the ability to throw 8gigs in a laptop. This is a replacement for an E1405 and my I9300 is still my go-to laptop.

Dell Inspiron 1440 :: How To Do Factory Reset

Jan 24, 2015

I just inherited a Dell Inspiron 1440 running Windows Home 7, which has been very lightly used, but has enough additional stuff installed, that "sluggish" is the only appropriate word for its performance.  I want to do a Factory Reset.  The directions written on page 58-59 of the paper Setup Guide are incorrect.

1. Turn on computer.
2. Press F8 to get Advanced Boot Options
3. Select Repair Your Computer
4. Go to Systems Recovery Options
5. Click "Dell Factory Image Restore"  THIS OPTION DOES NOT EXIST.

Instead, I am shown "Startup Repair" "System Restore" "System Image Recovery" "Windows Memory Diagnostic" and "Command Prompt"  NONE OF THESE is what I am looking for.Choosing "System Restore" gives me a bunch of restore points from the last 9 months only, and not the original factory settings.Choosing "System Image Recovery" is not appropriate either, as the previous owner did not create a system image backup.

Dell Inspiron 14 1440 :: Screen Is Black There Are No Blue Lights That Are On

Nov 25, 2014

My Dell Inspiron 14 1440 froze and i decided to manually turn it on and back on. I pushed, and held the power button until it turned off. Once it turned off i decided to take the battery out (for no apparent reason). So i took it out and put it back it (i didn't really touch anything). Once i put it back in i tried turning it on by pressing the power button, but it wouldn't turn on. The screen is black, there are no blue lights that are on. (These lights are on when you turn the laptop on).I tried the taking out the battery and hold power button for 30-60secs trick, but no luck. I also have taken out my laptop's ram and re-inserted it (same with my hard drive). Oh and my battery is fully charged. I tried searching the net for solutions but no one really has the same problem as me. Most of the other people with problems said they could hear the fan, but with mine there is noting. No sound. No lights. No working laptop just one really expensive door stop.

Dell Inspiron 1440 :: Won't Boot Using Windows Vista Ultimate

Apr 13, 2013

I have a Dell Inspiron 1440 that won't boot now.  Using WinVista Ultimate and needed to reboot but it hangs after the Dell logo/Inspiron screen with the white status bar is completed at the bottom of the LED screen.  I removed the 500GB HD and inserted a new 1TB Win7 Professional that I've been working on for the last couple of weeks and it won't boot either.  Same situation on both HD (2 Win OSes on same laptop with same issue).  FYI, I have 8GB RAM in the laptop (been that way for couple of years) but I don't suspect the RAM as the issue.  I do have 2-2GB RAM DIMMs that came with the laptop initially in case that's a test I need to make.

Functionally, it appears like the boot sector on the HD isn't "available" but I've tried two (2) different HDs and I get the same issue.  Hence, I think it's not a HD issue.

What IS the issue and what are my options?  Laptop appears to be fine otherwise.  New motherboard?  $$??

Pressing F2 or F12 doesn't get me anywhere at startup time either.

Dell Inspiron 1440 :: Over Sensitive Touchpad - Cursor Jumping All Over The Place

My Inspiron 1440 laptop running on Windows 7; I have always had the problem with the cursor jumping all over the place and sometimes it just deleted the whole of document by itself.  So frustrated to use.  I just found that it's a known problem as it happens to many of the other models. What does Dell Support have to say about this?  It takes me forever to type this message as it keeps jumping around wherever the mouse pointer is.

Dell Inspiron 1440 :: Any Way To Do Factory Restore When Menu Option Doesn't Show Up?

Jan 4, 2012

I'm trying to do a Dell Factory Restore on my Dell Inspiron 1440 Vista laptop. I did a manual reinstallation some days ago, but only halfway through as I got confused with the drivers to install and messed up on the installation sequence, and thus started having driver problems again. Now, I don't see "Repair your computer" on the Vista Advanced Bootup options menu, even though the partition is still there intact and undamaged.

Any way to work this out ? I think I saw an article where doing a lot of steps through command prompt made the Factory Restore work, even when it does not show up.
