There are dark grey marks on both side of the palm rest on my M1210 palm rest which doesn't come off no matter what i use on it. There were never there until i cleaned my laptop with some iso-propyl alcohol. I wiped the whole laptop and around the two palm rest area, silver stuff were coming off my laptop and transferring into onto my cloth.
The place where the silver things come off became a big dark spot on my laptop.
I sent my computer for repair to Dell after a fall and when it came back, it came back with a variety of new problem. turns out, dell people damaged the the motherboard and forgot a few screws with a new palm rest when they were "fixing" it.
Anyway, I got a technician to change the motherboard and I got a new palm rest. Now I have the feeling the palm rest/mouse pad get a bit warmer than before but I am not really sure.
How hot should it be for a normally functionning XPS 1530? It is not burning hot or anything but I don't remember if before it was getting this warm.
I have an AR series Vaio and ive just got a new palm rest for it, can anyone tell me how easy they are to fit as i was expecting just a bit of plastic but its quite an in depth part where i think the keyboard and a few other things have to come off.
The silver trim that runs around the border of the case is starting to wear away and pit around where my palms rest. Is this something covered by warranty? And if not is it reasonably affordable / simple to fix?
The main reason I wanted this computer was for it's looks, so the fact that it's already starting to form visual defects is really, really annoying.
Has anyone removed the stickers from the right palmrest of their E6400 (or similar)? The Windows Vista Basic sticker is really annoying to me, but it seems to be very securely attached and I don't want to ruin anything in the process of removing it....
Has anyone attempted to replace the palmrest/keyboard assembly on their S XPS 16? I've done keyboards on older Dell laptops but this seems a bit more involved. The metal trim on the palm rest is coming up so it would be nice to have it replaced,
I used my Studio 1535 without problem about 4-5 months and temperatures were fine. But from some time I have very strange problem. First my charger became relatively very hot, my mother consider it as very hot as well.
After my hard disk becomes hot 39-40 C, and now I guess as result from fan system and HDD high temperature, my left palm rest (typically warm on most notebooks) is hot too.
i have had my like MB for just over a year...so my warranty just ran out. i noted that the top case has started cracking around the edge, and asking my friends and people who has the macbook, this is a pretty common problem. but mine is getting pretty bad.
Do you think Apple would send me a replacement topcase and if so, how much would it cost. i don't know if anyone else has had this problem and asked for a replacement.
I was giving my 1645 a nice cleaning when I noticed a depression on the left hand side palm corner. The black of the palm rest actually sinks below the the silver trimming. Is this normal? is it supposed to be flush? Does it mean I need yet ANOTHER part replaced on this damn laptop?
Does anyone else get a slight tingling or vibrating sensation on the right palmrest? It doesn't really bother me but I just find it peculiar....it's really hard to describe except that my hand can feel some kind of vibrating going on (it's very subtle and doesn't make noise). Anybody else know what I mean?
The fan is always on. It doesn't disturb at the lowest level, but it ramps up every 5 mins or so for 2 or 3 seconds. I find that ramping up disturbing and would like to disable it. Considering how cool the air coming out is compared to laptops I have had in the past (Thinkpads and Toshiba) I would say HP is being conservative with their settings.
I wanted to upgrade my ram in my 6930p Right now I have to temp ram 2gb 667mhz. I want to upgrade to a 800mhz but I don't know how much I should get I wanted 8gb but I'm not going to play much hard core games so this might be to much.
What do you consider to be the best overall memory needed for games and App.
I'm aiming to buy a new HP EliteBook 6930p in January 2010. There are a few issues that I've read about which concern me, however.
Some of these I have read have been fixed, although I haven't seen much in the way of confirmation of this. So I'm wondering, of these, have any been fixed in the latest production models of the 6930p?
1) The lid takes too much pressure to shut and/or doesn't stay shut.
2) The battery is loose when attached (any danger of it falling off?)
3) CPU whine -- I'm planning on getting it with a P8800 and ATI HD 3450 256MB, if that matters.
I just swap out the the motherboard for a working one and change all the components inside and the monitor don't power on. All the lights show the fan spins but no picture. Before I did the motherboard swap the same thing happen. The shop I took it to said it needed a discharge from the build up over time. After the unfix-able corrupt bios problem I was force to swap boards. How do I do the static discharge? I ground myself with a steel pipe took apart everything put it back together still the same.
I bought HP 6930p with ATI graphic card, WIN 7, and connected to the external display 24" (1920x1080) trough VGA port. There is a very noticable blurry and annoying image on external display. I tried different settings, but nothing did not help. Is there any solution to this problem? could be my graphic card or vga output damaged? Since with my 4 years old toshiba notebook, image was clear.
Has anybody docking station and is DVI output working fine (clear image)?
