Dell :: How To Downgrade BIOS On Vostro 1310

Apr 17, 2009

I made a previous fan about the issue I had with Dell's managment of the fan settings. In an attempt to combat this, I thought I'd try installing a previous BIOS to see if it fixes the problem (perhaps there was an alternative fan managment setup).

Dell :: Inspiron 13, XPS M1330, Studio XPS 13, Vostro 1320 Or Vostro 1310

Apr 5, 2009

im not sure if i want a graphic card in it, as it would just eat battery life and i would get nothing much out of it, since i have no plans in gaming with it.

i will be, however massively watching movies, and streaming movies (99.9% of the web, not dvd player) would that need a dedicated graphic card?

i would also like to know which are the best in terms of :

price, screen quality, build quality, weight, which ones have the same keyboard,current known issues, and are they any rumors or known news of any updates of any of these models in the next 6 months worth waiting for?

ive also bought a m1330 a few months back, but since i had some issues with school, i had to return it and delay my purchase to this year.

the laptop was getting extremely hot, like not even possible to put on my lap kind-of hot. is that issue fixed?

Dell :: Vostro 1310 Opinions

Apr 17, 2009

I am at that horrible stage of deciding on a new laptop after my brilliant yet flawed ibook decided to break, signaling the end of my relationship with anything mac.

I need a compact notebook for traveling (2 year overland trip starting in October - africa/mid east/asia). i have been looking at several 12-13" notebooks and i have come across the Dell.

While it is listed under the business market i think it might suit my needs. Primeraly i need to use photoshop and lightroom to manage my photography workflow,

write reports in word, browse the web wirelessly and (last but not least) play football manager while im sitting on trains and buses!

It seems that i can spec the dell with a T8100 dual core 2 processer (2.16 Ghz), 3mb cache, Nvidia video card, 3GB RAM and a 6 cell for around 550, which is pretty good considering the spec.

However coming from mac i really need some advice into whether or not this processing speed will be enough for me as i am not up to speed, i know that the centrino chips are better but with a sub 550 buget im just looking for the best i can get and i like the service that Dell gave my parents when they got a desktop from them

Dell :: Vostro 1310 Vs Inspiron 13

Feb 3, 2009

I am looking for a second small laptop. I was thinking netbook but now consider 13'. I noticed that the Vostro 1310 is $599 with very decent spec and Inspiron and XPS 13 are a few hundred more expensive.

I guess that's because the Vostro uses Morem CPU. If I go to Outlet, I can grab a Vostro 1310 for $4xx. If there is a coupon going on, the deal is even sweeter.

I know XPS 1310 has much better build quality but how about Vostro 1310 vs Inspiron 13, if I don't care about CPU difference?

Dell :: Vostro 1310 Fan Noise

Apr 9, 2009

I recently purcahsed a vostro 1310 laptop. It's been absolutely great, except for one thing: the fan is incredibly annoying.

Once the processor reaches 45 degrees celsius, the fan kicks in, lowers it to 40, and then turns off. A few minutes later, the computer will go up to 45, and the fan will kick in again; so it goes through this loop of turning on and off, which is incredibly annoying.

Doing some more research, I've found that other people have also had this 'problem'. Undervolting and switching to powersaving mode solved the problem a bit, but once it hits 45, I still have the same problem.

Dell :: Vostro 1310 In Place Upgrade To ULTIMATE ?

Apr 1, 2009

note: my process below is for Australia where we do not have access to Microsoft's online AnyTime Upgrade for Windows products...

I'm in the process of purchasing a Dell Vostro 1310 on behalf of a family member who's just started University (College)

I've configured the one we want into a shopping cart at the Dell Store. However, it only comes with Vista Home BASIC included. I can upgrade it via Dell to Business or Ultimate for a further $237. I would rather have Home PREMIUM but Dell does not offer that for Vostro as it's a "business" system. That's fine. But Home Basic is not suitable.

Here is what I'm planning and I want to run it past the experts here before going ahead.

* Purchase the Vostro 1310 from Dell with HOME BASIC included in the price.
* Purchase ULTIMATE UPGRADE for $80 from MS via offer for ADDITIONAL PRODUCTS at the itsnotcheating.com.au site.
* Take delivery of the laptop from Dell with HOME BASIC pre-installed
* Use the ULTIMATE UPGRADE to do an in-place upgrade of the the pre-installed Vista HOME BASIC to ULTIMATE...

I just received my first laptop, a Vostro 1510 from Dell. The specs are in my sig.

I have a few newbie questions:

Dell :: 8400m Gs On Vostro 1510

Feb 28, 2010

I own a vostro1510 with a 8400m gs. i am a casual gamer and during gaming gpu goes upto 85c. i am worried about my gpu as we all know about the failure rate of 8400 and 8600. my warranty is going to expire on sep 15 so do you guys recommend me going for extended warranty? i find it a bit costly.

remember my laptop was purchased on sep 15 2008 and my mobo was replaced few months back(not due to failing gpu). someone also told me that the replacement gpu's are not defective is it so?

Dell :: Want To Return My Vostro 1510

Apr 11, 2009

I received this dell laptop on 3rd of march 2009 and ever since I got this laptop, my life has been a living hell. I've written about my problems before:

Vostro 1510 - touchpad/keyboard problems

Basically, I've wasted plenty of time chatting with dell representatives and they have already replaced my touchpad (twice), heat sink, fan, motherboard, keyboard in such a short span.

I've tried switching to different operating systems and it hasn't helped me in any way. Now, when I try to contact dell representatives, they tell me that its not a hardware problem since the hardware has already been replaced and so they just give me the same software solutions (reinstall os, reinstall drivers) as before without even listening to my problems. One time this representative even cut off the line. Now what I want to ask is : can i return this laptop now ? I know that my 21 day period is over but my work is really suffering right now because of this laptop.

Dell :: Keeping My New Vostro 1510 Clean

Feb 8, 2009

I received a new Dell Vostro 1510 a few weeks ago and have to say although the lid looks nice it's a major fingerprint magnet. What kind of an electronics cleaner can I use and what should I use to apply the cleaner directly to the lid with to help keep the lid clean and free of my fingerprints?

Also what should I use to help keep the LCD monitor clean? I certainly won't use Windex and a paper towel. MY monitor is the anti-glare entry level monitor which works great for web surfing and email but not so great for watching DVD's or online videos. It's too late now but if I had to reconfigure the laptop again which other monitor choice should I have selected for better viewing quality?

Dell :: Keyboard Unresponisve Until OS Booted Up (on Vostro 1510)

Aug 3, 2009

Has anyone seen something like this? ...

The built-in keyboard works perfectly while the installed Windows XP is up and running, including Fn functions, CAPS LOCK etc.

But during system boot up, it shows no reaction at all! Neither does hitting Caps lock, NUM and Scroll lock change the indicator LEDs.
-> no BIOS access
-> no boot up from CD/DVD
-> not even the XP Boot Menu (that shows up after hitting F8 or abnormal shutdown) is controllable

As soon as Windows is up, it works perfectly again.

Dell Vostro 1510 :: Battery Recharges For A Second And Then Stops

Sep 10, 2012

It also seems that the motherboard won't recognize the battery despite the fact that windows *can* occasionaly recharge it,even weirder sometimes with no prior warnning or indication it seems that it is able to recharge again. My two theories are that the problem is either faulty hardware, or I need to update BIOS. What do you think?

Dell Vostro 1510 :: Gray Screen On Booting Using XP

Jan 8, 2015

I now have a grey screen on booting and it is trying to reboot itself.It started with lines then dots. I managed to boot OK once after this but now just a grey screen. I believe I have managed to start diagnostics pressing Fn while starting as I heard beeps which kept repeating until I pressed Y, yes, I heard the sounds, I guess. But I can only see a grey screen so do not know the results of the tests. There are no beeps or diagnostic lights staying on or flashing to tell me anything. I had this problem before but cannot remember what I did if anything to remedy it.
