Dell :: E6400: Plastic Unsnaps From Latch Holder Area

Nov 22, 2009

I dropped my Latitude E6400 while it was in my backpack and the palmrest plastic next to the latch holder unsnapped from the base. I snapped it back in. About a month later, it was unsnapped again and I snapped it back in again. I don't remember dropping it. I wonder:

1. Has this happened to anybody?
2. Do you think I broke anything?

Dell :: E6400 Internal SATA Controller Possibly Broken?

Mar 7, 2009

I have E6400 with Vista SP1. When I tested hard disk using HDtune, the burst rate is always much lower compared to the transfer rate. I already tried Seagate, WD, Toshiba, they're all the same.

But if I look benchmark from other users (they don't use Dell though), the graph is different. Here is what I have:
My graph: the burst rate is always low.
E6400 users, can you test yours and let me know?

Dell :: Latch Not Tight

Nov 6, 2008

This is hard for me to explain since I know nothing about parts etc. I just received my Studio 17 and am wondering if this is normal: the long compartment seen along the 87 & 95 labels in this pic (not sure what that is) has a latch/fit that seems a bit loose. If I push on it, it makes a "clack" sounds as though the "door" has too much room to move around. Normal and nothing to worry about? Id appreciate if you guys could test yours and see if it makes a noise as well. Thanks.

how often is too often for the fan to be on. It seems to me the fan is on 50-75% of the time....

Dell :: Studio 1555 Keyboard Latch

Feb 16, 2010

I'm trying to remove a keyboard from a Studio 1555. Iím at the part where it says, "Disconnect the keyboard cable from the keyboard connector on the system board by rotating the keyboard connector latch towards the front of the computer.

I see the white connector on the cable and I see the black connector on the system board, but for the life of me I donít see any latch.

Could someone who has experience with this give me an idea of what I should be looking for? The picture in the online service manual is less than enlightening

Apple :: MacBook Pro Lid Won't Latch Properly

Apr 7, 2010

I have a 17" MBP 2.16 Ghz. I'm having problems with the Lid latching properly. I think my issue is that the magnet on the Right Latch is not strong enough. The hook on the left swings down from the magnet o the right, but the hook on the left does not. It will swing out if I put a magnet close to it.

I used a nail file and can feel magnetic pull over where both magnets should be. I just think the left one is a little too week. This causes only one hook to engage the latch.

Does anyone have pix of these magnets?

Can you purchase them somewhere?

Is there room there to put in a stronger magnet?

If there are any threads out there that show how to repair this, I would love to see it. I've been searching for hours and can't find a thread addressing the magnet issue.

The other thing this does is make it appear the LCD is warped because only one latch grabs, but really the display may not be warped, it just looks like it is because it is only being held by one Latch.

Apple :: Sharp Edges On Macbook Pro 13 Inch Latch Opening

Dec 10, 2009

i have a 13 inch macbook pro and the latch cut-out area has cut my finger... yes, thats right, it has extracted blood from my index finger. I thought that the edges on the latch area where sharp but this is ridiculous. I want to call up Apple and complain about this.

Any of you ever had any issues with this? Look at your aluminum macbook and see how sharp those two points are where the opening lid latch is and you will see what i am talking about.

Lenovo X Series ThinkPad :: X200s Flacky Wireless Latch

Nov 6, 2008

My new X200s has a flacky wireless latch.
 
Sometimes windows gives the message that all wireless radios are now off. So as if I've switched the hardware switch. But I didn't touch anything.
 
I think it is hardware related because sometimes I can just yently touch the switch and windows will be telling me that the radios are on again. It is not so much of a problem, but it happens every few hours and fixing it would be nice.
 
I've removed the keyboard and the palmrest, but the cardbus (?) is still preventing me from having a closer look. Don't know if I can get any closer without removing the entire mainboard. Because that would be a bit too much.

Dell :: Broken Sub On SXPS 16

Whenever my laptop is on a flat service such as a desk I get incredible vibration and distortion from what seems to be the subwoofer in front, even at low volumes. Is this normal? Seems kind of silly...

Dell :: M1530 BROKEN

Aug 8, 2009

I've had the m1530 for 15 months (Out of warranty) Never really had any significant problems with it, until yesterday. When it boots up, it will load the desktop and then freeze.

The mouse will move, but nothing will load and everything stops. Not even Ctrl Alt Del works. I keep trying to reboot it, and I have got loads of various errors from the blue screen, a message saying my virus protection is not up to date, message saying a file is corrupted, and a message saying my firewall is turned off.

I guess it sounds like a virus, but it will load every-time in Safe Mode no problem (When I click on Firefox while in SM in actually causes it to freeze, but I uninstalled it and still have the prob). What can I do? Time to reinstall Vista?

Dell :: Broken 7900GT On M1710

Sep 8, 2008

My 7900 on the Dell M1710 I have has burnt up and I'm looking for a card to replace it with. I had thought the 7950 was a good replacement, but wondered with the shell being an M1710 are there other cards to put in there or is it only the 7900 and 7950.

Also, is there a good place you can think of to purchase these cards? Ebay is kinda dried up now.

Dell :: Wifi Antennas Broken

May 7, 2009

After almost 7 services by the *always gentle* Dell techs, im getting a new problem, my WIFI reception is just crud, being right next to my router i get 4 bars... and if i get a little farther apart it will loose signal and oscillate between 3 bars and 1 bar, and sometimes even disconnect all of a sudden on places i always had good signal, and reconnecting will fail a couple of times before its successfully connects. ( ive tried this with several different routers, and the same happens )

is it possible that my WIFI antennas were damaged? or could it also be my wireless card? ( intel N 4950 )

i have already checked where the 3 antennas connect to the card and they seem ok.

Dell :: Broken Screen Frame

Jan 21, 2009

I would like to thank The realfireblade for answering my post in a different forum. It has been impossible for me to answer him directly. The dell forum refuses my password.

I worked on that all day today, changing my account three or four times. I thought I had finally managed to create a new one that worked, but no, when I tried to answer Therealfireblade, the forum refused my password. I am not stupid, I had written the right password.

I have spent three days now trying to get in touch with somebody at Dell's to know where I can have my little laptop repaired. It is awful

Dell :: Broken HDMI Port

Dec 12, 2008

Anyone else's HDMI port break on them? I barely used it.. I've had the XPS M1530 since late March/early April but when I tried to hook up my surround sound today it did not work. I tried using different cables, different port on the receiver, and tried directly with my HDTV but my computer does nothing. I updated the audio drivers and flashed the bios, but no luck. Pretty sure HDMI port broke. What a piece of garbage.

After my lid randomly cracking when I closed it less than a month ago and now this.. I can see how this computer will definitely break by the time my 3 yr warranty ends. Good job, Dell. Could they even replace the HDMI port on the machine or would they have to put in an entire new motherboard?

Dell :: D620 Video (broken Screen)

May 16, 2010

I was given a dell d620 with a broken screen. Looked like it was cracked down the middle. I replaced the screen (not the lid or hinges). It makes a clicking/cracking type noise when I open the lid. No visible cracks. Now, sometimes when it boots, i get vertical lines and sometimes dollar signs before Windows boots. Windows DOES boot fine with no lines whatsoever. I have researched and found the symptoms are the same for a bad vid card. (I know this has Integrated graphics). If my card was bad, would Windows still boot and look normal? Why would it only affect the boot screen?

Dell :: 1525 Broken Keyboard ZIF Clip

Nov 23, 2009

I busted off a keyboard ZIF clip on a laptop I was working on. Now no matter what I try I can not get all keys to work. Contacted Dell and they can't give me the part number for the clip so I am able to order a new one.

Can anyone by chance identify the part number of the connector or have any ideas as to how to make all keys work again when fixing the cable in it.

Attached a few pics to help identify/see what I am working with. I'd really like to not have to shell out $120 on a used mobo just to replace it.

Oct 26, 2009

i made a wrong step on my opened dvd drive, was bend ~ 30 degrees. sound: typical breaking plastic.

if i were a n00b i would just slide it in and stay calmed. but i know how complex computers are and don't want to loose my data (again) or have my house burned because of a shortcut or so.

btw shaking the laptop even with the drive removed sounds like there is a loosy jumper or something, is that normal?

Dell :: New Studio 1555, Broken Screen

Sep 15, 2009

I received my Studio 1555 this evening (was away at class, mother signed for package) and upon opening up the box and booting up the laptop, the screen has a small 1 inch crack at the top of it, on the left side of the camera. I don't see any damage on the lid where the crack is on the screen. I have already tried calling the technical support line with no help from the indian speaking fools there. Does anybody know if I'm going to have to send it back to Dell to have it repaired or will they send a tech out with it? I only have the basic 1 year warranty on it since I had to keep the price to a certain minimum.

Dell :: Headphone Jack Physically Broken

Oct 29, 2007

I was listening music on my headphone and when I put it off the headphone jack, I didn't hear any sound. I realised there is a problem with the jack, a bad contact electronic contact.

Since then, the jack is more and more "moving". I always lose the sound and get it back and it's really disturbing.

I have a Inspiron 9300, and according to this photo (taken in this forum), [url] the headphone and microphone jack is at the left middle part.

Here is my 2 questions:

- Is the only way to solve it is to change the sound card?

- Is is supposed to be cover by th warranty? Because the sound card still work, the problem is the input jack itself.

Dell :: Broken Screw On A Heat Sink (XPS M1530).

May 7, 2009

I've been recently applying Arctic Silver 5 paste to my CPU/GPU according to the guide found on this forum. After that the temperatures not only did not drop they actually are slighlty higher. The problem may be that I haven't use the lint free cloth tough I did took care not to leave any lint on the surfaces. Anyway, I decided to redo a whole operation with much more care. Unfortunately as I opened my XPS M1530 one of the screws heads was broken in a way that I could not use any of my phillips screwdrivers on it. How can I remove it now & more importantly what are the dimensions/sizes of the screws that are used to attach the heatsing to the GPU/CPU as I may have to buy one to replace it & don't seem to be able to find that info anywhere?......
