Dell :: Studio 15 Wifi Catcher

Nov 11, 2008

I got my s15 a few months ago. All was well except that I noticed my wifi catcher doesn't work properly. The manual says it should work like this:

Flashing white: Searching for networks
Solid white for 10 seconds and then turns off: Network found
Off (flashing white turns off after 10 blinks): No signal found

Also my catcher never even does '10 blinks' as above, it is always just 3.

When windows is running, the same button works and launches the available networks utility so the physical button works.

I've tried my catcher (always with laptop off) in numerous places including my own home (where my home wifi network is available) and coffee shops where there is a public hotspot. On numerous occassions I have gone into a coffee shop with the machine off. I've pressed the catcher and got

Flashing white: Searching for networks (well, 3 blinks)
Off (flashing white turns off after 10 (well, 3 in my case) blinks): No signal found

After this I've booted up and found / connected to a network straight away.

Last night I tried 'dell chat' with a support teccy and I got absolutely nowhere. Although they admitted that the catcher should work as I've said, they refused to accept mine wasn't working. They basically said they cannot help me.

I am looking for advice here if possible please folks. OK, so I know its not the end of the world but I hate having a feature on my laptop that does not work. I've effectively got a useless button that does nothing but flashes a pretty light 3 times when I press it.

I recently did a road trip in the US and booked my hotels as I went. The catcher would have been very useful here.

My suspicions with this are that it is either a) my laptop came with the higher
DELL WIRELESS 1510 (802.11N) card, or that its got 4gb of ram on vista 32 (home premium).

My g/f s inspiron's catcher works fine but she has the lower intel card.

Does anyone have any suggestions as to what I do about this? Really I think Dell should be fixing this as its one of the advertised features of the s15. I think I'd like to escalate this further but not sure who to speak to.

Dell :: Studio 1535 With Intel WiFi Link 5100

Apr 23, 2009

I'm getting myself an Intel WiFi Link 5100 to replace the current Dell 1510N card in my Studio 1535. Is the Intel WiFi Link 5100 fully supported by my laptop?

Are the number of wires same for both cards? Any specific steps that I need to do when replacing the card? This is my first time doing this so I'm a bit nervous.

Dell :: M4400 WIFI Catcher And Other Questions

May 28, 2009

i just got my M4400 and from a first contact, i am very happy with it. i have a question about the WiFi Catcher.

it seems it does not recognize the wifi card (5300) although i am able to connect to the internet over wireless. when i press the button, a window that says radio is off appears.

Also in Dell Control Point it seems like there is no wifi connection in the DCP connection manager and all wifi related options are disabled. i can only see and use the dial up and ethernet connection in this software.

Dell :: Wifi Catcher Does Not Work - M1210

Aug 10, 2007

the wifi catcher stop working after i uninstalled the intel proset/wireless application. im just wondering if the wifi catcher is part of the intel proset apps?

i set windows xp to handle my wifi network and just installed the intel proset/wireless driver only.

i can still use the on and off button for wifi, but the other options are greyed out.

i think im missing a software here, but i dont have plans in reinstalling the intel proset application. is there any other dell utility that i can use?

Dell :: Studio XPS 1647 Media Buttons Not Lighting Up Or Working

Jan 28, 2014

The touch sensitive media buttons above the keyboard on my Studio XPS 1647 stopped working the other day. When I tried to turn my laptop back on the computer beeped a few times and the screen flashed a few solid colors and then went black. I had to turn the laptop off and on again and it booted as normal except the media buttons stopped working. They do not light up or respond to touch.

I have restarted the laptop, updated the Dell QuickSet drivers and the BIOS and nothing has fixed it. According to this post the media buttons need to be replaced. How can I do that and where can I buy the parts needed?

Dell :: Hot Temperatures Studio 1535

May 13, 2009

Well people in my country is summer, and from some days (4-5 days) my Studio 1535 has annoying for me HDD and GPU temperatures.

I will attach old picture and current picture and you can compare the temperatures.
Plus the fan stays on higher speed and it just don't want to turn itself back to normal light speed mode, I guess because high HDD and GPU temperatures.

WC3 is running with average of 45 fps with the ATI HD 3540 GPU.

My other laptop has the same CPU, less ram but have GF 8600M GT and the game runs with 100 FPS. I was wondering why is that big difference between the two GPUs:

ATI HD 3450 - GPU:500 MHz
MEM:500 MHz

GF 8600M GT- GPU:475 MHz
MEM:500 MHz
Both DDR2.

Dell :: Studio 1535 Cutting Out

Jan 4, 2009

i got mine in july and then in september the screen suddenly just went blank and the whole laptop just died.

It wouldnt turn back on and so Dell replaced the motherboard. Laptop came back and worked fine. But then all of a sudden it kept cutting out randomly again but would switch back on.

But then on saturday it cut out and now wont turn back on again. So will have to be sent off again now!

Anyone heard of this problem before? Getting very anoyed by it

Also sometimes the speakers just wont work at all and the CD drive button stays on and keeps trying to eject a disc even if there isnt one in there!

Dell :: Studio 1535 LCD Swap

Dec 11, 2008

I recently received my Dell Studio 1535 after my motherboard on my inspiron 9100 fried. The lcd screen on the 9100 is much better (1680x1050) than the 1535 (1280x800), also i hate glossy screens. After reading this thread

[apparently i cannot post links yet, just search "LCD Swap m1530" in this site and you'll get it right away.]

I was hopeful that i would be able to swap out the 1535 screen and put in the screen from the 9100. I got both successfully removed, but kinda got stuck with the inverters and all that stuff, and got scared because i don't want to break anything. The thing that confused me the most was that the 1535 lcd plugged TWO things (power i think?) directly into the inverter, whereas the 9100 has only 1 thing that plugs directly into its inverter. It seems pretty clear that the original inverter has to be the one the computer uses based on all my googling of this subject, but how can i do that if it doesn't plug into the inverter the same way? can someone please offer me some help in this? i would have like to have contacted the original poster of the thread i linked, but of course, no contact information was available in his profile I may post pictures if i decide to take it all apart again. At the very least, can someone confirm or deny that it would be possible to make this swap? i will be very disappointed if i'm stuck with this low res screen forever...

Dell :: Dismay With Studio 1535

May 18, 2009

I am just not satisified with this laptop. I paid 1200 euro at the time, and in return got a somewhat unstable system. Windows had this bad habit of crashing often, and not shutting down correctly, until I upgraded to Vista 64-Bit.

I am although, happy with the 4GB of RAM, and graphics, you get what you pay for with them, although the Graphics card is the main reason I am going to purchase a new laptop as my gaming is going to have to go mobile in boarding school soon.

Anyway, the silver casing I bought my laptop with is just unsatifactory. I had it sent back twice for cracked lid hinges, both sides. Now this is the third lid casing I have had, seems to be okay, hinges haven't buckled yet, but the plastic is still flimsy, cheap and very very badly painted. I have had this new lid on for 2 weeks now and the paint is already starting to scratch and peel off above the LCD, and is damaged and quite scratched on the palm rest, although that is to be expected.

I have had a problem with the sound twice. It randomly decides not to play through the speakers, unless I apple pressure to the bottom left of the laptop with my left palm. Got the motherboard replaced twice yet this has only been improved but not prevented.

Sounds like a loose connection or bad fitting issue to me.

Lastly, the media keys above the keyboard, ALWAYS freeze. The keys have been replaced twice to, but still it has not been fixed. Every time I turn on the laptop, whether booting into Vista 64-Bit or XP Professional, it happens. Eventually it resolves itself, but is a major annoyance, especially when it decides it doesn't want to eject my disc, and freezes up as a result when I try to eject it by right clicking "My Computer".

Oh, and to top it all off, the keys on the keyboard tend to flick upwards and appear to almost break off, I had a problem with my "K" key coming half loose once.. Not re-assuring.

Sorry to be a pessimist. Just expressing my opinions, not forcing them upon you. Similar stories or opinions are welcome to be posted in this forum. Also, I do not know, but have these problems been resolved in the 1555?

Dell :: Studio 1535 Warranty

Mar 28, 2009

I am having MAJOR issues with my Studio 1535 and I could use some input!

About two months ago, the fan kicked on at HIGH speed as soon as I pressed the power button to boot up. It continued to run on HIGH indefinitely, unless I lifted one of the rear corners a bit off the desk. Then the fan would stop instantly until I lowered the edge back down to the desk surface.

I've spoken with a few other 1535 owners who've had the same issue. Motherboard flex seems to be the culprit and it (the system/mother board) needs to be replaced.

I sent it in for warranty repair the first time with a detailed explanation of the problem. I also detailed a problem I was having with the keyboard that needed to be fixed. They replaced the keyboard and didn't address the fan issue. Immediately out of the box, I powered it up and the fan instantly kicked on HIGH, too.

I sent it back a second time with a detailed explanation again (after a long chat with tech support). They replaced the fan itself. I got it back yesterday and as soon as I hit power, the fan kicked in at HIGH speed. Making matters WORSE, the system gave me an error during the boot sequence that it didn't recognize and couldn't charge the battery! It allowed me to ESC out of the error and booted to my desktop. That's when I realized the Touchpad wouldn't work at all! I had to connect a wireless mouse via USB to do ANYTHING!

To add insult to injury, there's an inch-long scratch on the Midnight Blue lid that wasn't there the last time I sent it back!

So now, I've got the FAN/motherboard issue, some sort of Battery problem AND the Touchpad doesn't work! The scratch is the least of my worries...

Dell :: Studio 1535 Won't Start

Mar 15, 2009

Right now I'm posting this from a friend's netbook, for the record.

So, this is something of an emergency. My Studio 1535, as the title says, is not starting. When I first plug in the power cord, the small white light turns on for just a second and then turns off again.

Normally it stays on while plugged in.

When I press the power button, the white ring of light around the button turns on like normal, and the media buttons flash in sequence, just like a normal boot.

Unfortunately, this is where it stops going as usual.

Dell :: Studio 1535 To Windows 7...?

Sep 18, 2009

asked over at Dell forums but I expect I'll get better responses from the fine minds that browse these boards

I bought the 1535 last year with Vista Home Premium 32-bit. I will be getting Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit on October 22 - assume I'll only have upgrade media for the time being. Here are my questions:

1. Where would I find the correct drivers? Should I just use the Vista 64 drivers for Studio 1535?

2. If I had to format my HDD for some reason, would I be able to re-install Windows 7 with Upgrade media? I've read that the installation will ask for my Vista install disc - will the one that Dell supplied work for this?

Dell :: Studio 1535 Won't Eject Disc

Mar 12, 2009

I've had a Dell Studio 1535 for a couple months now and have had no problems with it at all. In the past couple weeks I've been backing up my dvd's and have done them all so far succesfully until now.

I put a blank dvd disc into the slot loading drive and it sucked it in just like it does every time. When I click start to begin burning I get a message from the program that there is no disc in the drive.

I go into my computer and right click on the e: drive and select "explore" and it says "please insert a disc into the drive". So for some reason the blank dvd disc isn't being read and the computer doesn't acknowledge that there is a disc in the drive. I've tried many methods to eject the disc but all have failed........................................
