So I recieved my laptop yesterday and opened it up today. I got everything set up and messed around, yet had to go out for a little while. I left it off power yet when I went to start it up the screen didn't come on! The side light is constantly white when plugged in, and an external monitor works perfectly fine. Is there anything I can do to troubleshoot this issue? I there any button I could have pressed to cause this problem? Or is a call with dell my only answer?
*UPDATE* Issue resolved by buckZor: Shutdown gracefully, disconnect power. Remove battery. Wait 3 minutes. Plug battery back in & power, open and boot. Display light up?
So I've been following the RGBLED calibration thread and don't think i've found my answer through all the ICC profiles and whatnot.
I've had a Studio XPS 1640 which i exchanged for a 1645. The 1640's screen was showing up as way too saturated with blue causing everything to have very cool overtones. I had that screen replaced only to see the same issue.
Upon receiving my new 1645 I've noticed the same thing. The screen (although slightly to a lesser extent) is still pushing way to cool a picture. None of the ICC profiles have helped other than to push too much green as a result of the change.
My question is should I consider this to be an issue and request a replacement screen. Is there anyone out there who doesn't have an over saturation of the RGB colors in their display? I've seen people complain about too much reds and some with too much green. Also the display going to 1 of the 3 colors entirely. (I have not experience this)
I'm comparing this to my Dell Dimension 2200 Monitor which although is not RGB LED i would assume color accuracy would be near to (although more vibrant) as my samsung 245BW LCD.
Things I've tried. (all of the ICC Profiles provided in the display thread, Windows 7 Color calibration and finally ATI's Color control system in the CCC.
There is some screen behavior that has me a bit confused though and I'm hoping someone here might have thoughts or advice about it.
Every now and again, the screen gets just a bit dimmer for just a very brief moment, not much, just a bit, and pretty quickly, and then comes back to normal. It almost looks like it wants to go into it's "power saving" mode or something, for a moment, and then back out .....
I finally found where the hue and saturation setting are in the ATI ccc which nobody has been able to discover, including Dell who had already agreed to replace my screen because of the reds... gotta call them tomorrow to cancel. Am so happy with my screen now!
Anyway, I installed the latest ATI drivers from the AMD website and used the mobility modder to mod them so that they can be used correctly with the laptop vga card (although I'm sure that this option is in every version).
1) In the ccc switch to "Advanced" mode 2) At the top left where there's a menu titled "Graphics" with a small arrow next to it, choose "Desktops & Displays" 3) On the bottom left there should be a small picture of a laptop with the number "1" next to it. Right click on the picture of the laptop and choose "Configure" 4) It should now open a new screen. Just go to the middle tab "Avivo Color" and play around with the Hue and Saturation.
Here are my current settings: Avivo Color: Hue: -4 Saturation: 83
Desktop Properties (Also under the top left menu): Set color correction for: All Channels Gamma: 1.00 Brightness: -50 Contrast: 90
Has anybody ordered the RGBLED display and received the WLED one instead? I ordered the RBGLED (as shown on my receipt and Dell confirmation email) but my shipping confirmation says WLED. I am on the phone with them now, but they are only seeing WLED now (since that's what it's now showing for them). If you had this issue, how did you get it resolved?
Have you guys found any ways of improving the display quality of the E6400 WXGA+ LED backlit screen? I've noticed that compared to my Lenovo 19 inch widescreen LCD monitor, the colors are less rich, the blacks seem less deep (almost a bit washed out)
I recently upgraded my laptop from the 8920g to the 8930.
My only gripe with the 8930 is that there seems to be alot more backlight leakage in this model. Not so much around the edges (a thin line along the bottom but I guess that seems to be the case with most displays) but more streaks down the middle. Quite noticable if watching a movie on it at night.
What I am trying to do is change the brightness/contrast etc.. settings. I go in to the nvidia control panel settings and can adjust the bars up/down but nothing on the display changes. I can put everything on 0% but it still looks exactly the same. I click the apply button, even try a reboot but still no joy. Is there another way to do this or is my graphic card faulty? I've only had the laptop about a week.
Also, does anyone have any recommended display settings?
I can't change my laptop brightness neither with F2 and F3 keys nor in the settings. I have already updated all my drivers but still have no response when adjusting brightness. I have an hp pavilion sleekbook 15
I have a zbook with a nvidia quadro 610m graphics. I cannot get the gpu to save settings or engage when playing games. It was working until I tried to give windows 8 a try.I did a fresh install of windows 8. Then I installed the hp drivers cd that came with workstation. Everything says it completed successfully and I've rebooted multiple times.
When I open the nvidia control panel, none of the settings I change stick. E.g. tell every program to use the 610m. I click apply it looks like it was successful. However, if I open the nvidia control panel again, all changes are reverted. I restarted after hitting apply too. It doesnt matter what the changes are, they all revert.
I'm guessing I screwed up with the driver install or something but IDK.The device manager says that the 610m is working properly and the driver is up do date.
I have an Hp Pavilion Enternainment PC (HP Pavilion dv7 Notebook PC), 64bit, Windows 7, Service Pack 1. The pc is integrated with a HP xb4 Notebook Media Docking Station and a HP 2509m flat screen monitor. Unless I have turned the volume completely off, I continually get a volume icon (showing the current volume setting) intermittently displaying in the center of the flat screen monitor. I am unable to move it to any other location on the flat screen display or to the pc monitor.
I recieved my studio 16 2 days back and so far its been treating me well. I got the deal in Canada for a whopping 1350 .
It has the standard features that are found on most dell studio xps 16's here on the forum. I wanted to get some advice from you guys. You see I went with the native WLED 1366X768p screen and I am not too happy with it. When I was customizing the system I didn't see a point in spending 300 additional bucks on the higher end screen. However now I am thinking of getting the 1090p resolution LCD. How has the experience been for people that have the RBGLED? Is there a way to get it at a lower price? and is there a way to get higher display resolution on this current screen? perhaps through a different GPU? I am just considering my options here since I really do like this laptop everything is fine. I guess I'm just looking for a more crisp resolution and the price is too high
What is/are the part number(s) for the 16" 1080p RGBLED screen? My Dell order keeps getting some 1080p 15.6" WLED screen ... I'd like to use the part # and get the manager to fix it quickly. Also what is the part # for Bluetooth?
RGBLED vs WLED, both 1920x1080. I already ordered my sxps16 on 8-4-09, I went with the WLED, I bought it when it was 25% off select laptops, couldn't pick RGBLED at that time.
I have been racking my brain about this, tried to cancel but it was to late. Should be here soon, ten days since order and still not shipped. I HATE WAITING! They told me after I recieved the laptop I could return it.
When I go on the Dell website (both Canadian and American, although I am in Canada) and I customize one of these laptops with the rgbLED display, as soon as I switch the system colour to any other colour than the default black the rgbLED switches to a WLED, but the cost stays the same.
Is this a glitch, when it says WLED does it actually mean rgbLED? (or else why does it still cost the same) I was curious because I was definitely getting interested in the rgbLED, but I would much rather have the laptop in white.
I'm looking for a glossy, bright, rich color screen that has really, really deep blacks. There were some comments in the RGBLED settings thread that the blacks don't get very black on this screen. Is that true?
Would a white LED screen have better blacks? I don't care about photo work, I just want the best looking screen for games and movies.
It seems Dell does not have any RGBLED screens available for the XPS 16. What are the biggest advantage of the RGBLED instead of the other options Dell offers? Should I wait for the RGBLED? I'm not going to do any high-end photo or video editing, and I've heard that's one good reason to have that screen.
my order is being messed up with a 15.6" WLED 1080p screen, but I asked for a 16" RGBLED 1080p screen. I read on here that sometimes Dell installs an RGBLED even though it says WLED. How would an end user tell the difference, apart from "colour", which is subjective? Like is there a way to show it in something such as Device Manager or is there a way to look at your part somehow? I'd rather not rip my screen apart, but if it's not RGBLED then Dell is going to have to send a tech and the right screen.
