HP/Compaq :: Huge Crack Where The Screen Connects To The Laptop HDX16 Brand New Out Of Box

Dec 2, 2009

I recently had an HDX16 and tried out a DM3, but ended up returning the DM3 because I simply wanted a bigger and more powerful setup. Well, I had gone through 3 previous HDX16s because of various issues. Now I get one of the last ones they made (I got it about a week ago but was out of town for Thanksgiving.) Anyways, there's a huge crack in the plastic on the long roundish bar that connects the screen to the laptop. I don't know what to do. I can call, but they can't even send out another replacement, as the 16 doesn't exist anymore. To me the DV6/7/8 series isn't even comparable in my mind. What does everyone think I should do? I get the feeling they'll offer me say $50 which isn't worth the crack. I mean to me $200 is about where I'd say I'd be okay. But even then, I'll use it every day and think of the crack.....

Dell :: Brand New , Internal Monitor Crack

Feb 18, 2010

I got my brand new Studio 1558. 11 Hours later, internal screen cracked. Not even touched by myself, sat on my desk unwrapped (I was yet to set it up,

as it was late at night i got it). I turn it on this morning to find the screen was cracked internally, bleeding. Dell are picking it up tomorrow.

I am extremely angry at this. I'm mainly here to see if this is a common problem. I have literally done nothing to provoke this crack. It was opened once.

I did however notice a few mild streaks at the point where this bleeding started, the first time i turned it on. It was only noticeable with pure black.

Sony :: Parts Of The Screen Have Low Screen Resolution One Brand New Laptop

Apr 18, 2010

I just bought a brand new Sony Vaio VPCF11M1E and I have the following problem:

Because in normal stand the screen is very small, I enlarged it to x150%. Everything becomes bigger, but the following parts are blurry and absolutely not sharp:

-Pop ups, of programs and of windows itself (like advanced settings of something and then a new windows pops up, that one is then totally blurry; you can read it, but it is not the good resolution)

-Google chrome (and with that, all the internet pages)

-The google chrome on the desktop is also very blurry, while all the others, are still sharp (after the enlargement by 150%)

I have tried everything (32 bits colours is on, cleartype is on). I also did a system restore to the first days I bought the laptop and then it was on 100% so the resolution was excellent, but then I put it on 150% and again, the parts I mentioned above, were blurry.

Acer :: Laptop Crack

Oct 9, 2008

I have had my laptop for about 3 years now. It is an Acer TravelMate 2420. About 2 months ago I started to notice a crack forming on the back of the monitor by the left hinge. I was wondering if there is a way to stop the crack from getting bigger without sending it somewhere to get fixed.

Acer Aspire 5734Z-4386 :: Laptop Connects To One Wireless Network But Not Another

Dec 25, 2014

First I need to let you know that my home network consist of a Motorola modem/wireless router from my ISP. I have the wireless turned off, then I use a cat5 ethernet cable to connect a Belkin wireless router so that I can use the two USB ports on the back for a Networked storage device for doing regular backups on all the pc's in the house, and my non-wireless printer, so we can print from anyroom of the house, instead of taking the computer back to where the printer is. So about three days ago I got my Aspire 5734Z-4386 laptop, and I did not have a wireless connection. So I checked my phone, and it still had a connection to the Belkin. I took about ten minutes to troubleshoot the Atheros AR5B93 wireless adapter. Could not understand why I didn't have a connection, it was working great about 12 hours before. 
 
So for some reason I used another pc and logged into the Motorola and turned the wireless back on, and immediately the Aspire was showing a connection available, I clicked it and it said "connecting" for a few seconds, and then showed "internet connection". I spent about 5 minutes surfing the internet, and then disconnected from the Motorola and reconnected to the Belkin, it said "connecting" for about a minute, then the yellow triangle came up, no internet. Went back and clikced the Motorola, again internet connection, but not on the Belkin. So I got the other pc and checked the webpage for the Belkin to make sure the Aspire hadn't gotten blacklisted somehow, there's nothing there to explain why I can't connect. So I have spent three days, uninstalling the adapter, and re-installing, I used the Motorola to download the latest driver for the adapter. 
 
When the Aspire is on the Belkin network with the rest of the other pc's, I have no problem moving files from and to the Aspire. I can use the Aspire to log in to any of the other pc's and right-click a file and copy to the Aspire, and watch the file show up on the Aspire, or take the Aspire and copy a file over to another pc, or use another pc to access the Aspire. But I can not get an internet connection, unless I'm on the Motorola network. Now I had the wireless on the Motorola turned off so all the connected devices would be on one network so we can share files, and other network connected activities.

Acer :: Crack On The Screen Glass

Mar 2, 2010

My poor Acer 1810T Olympic Edition, after I slipped on stairs.

No scratch, thanks to the neoprene case.

Works perfectly except for a beautiful crack on the screen glass.

I'm using an Acer -- replacement LCD for $99 from eBay.

No $500 LCD's (like for the Sony Vaio P series)

And I'm just going to cannibalize my Acer Aspire One 11.6" netbook for now. All Acer-manufactured 11.6's use identical screens (Acer Ferrari One, Gateway 11.6" netbook, Acer

Aspire One 11.6", Acer 1410 series, Acer 1810 series)

Apple :: Macbook Pro Screen Frame Crack

Jul 2, 2009

I currently have a Macbook Pro, from the mid 2007 batch. The frame around the screen started with a hairline crack at the base of the screen on both sides about a year ago and since has developed into full blown crack on both sides. It seems that the rest of the screen is fine, so I don't want to buy a new one. Does anyone have any knowledge about replacing the bezel (not sure what to call it?) around the screen?

I found some crack on my screen.

1. On last Friday. After I went back to my home. I had open my laptop. At first, I had find some scratch on my laptop screen. It's on the bottom right corner of my screen. Then I use my finger w/ a little cloth to clean it. But it became to a little crack on my glass screen. Then I saw something just like a little dent.
- I always keep my Macbook pro in to a hardcase( AXIO - Black Hardcase, the one I got it from applestore), then carrying it w/my laptop bag with carefully.

2. Then on Saturday, I went to apple service (retial shop, I had buy my laptop) to claim about a problem on my laptop screen. They took a photo from my laptop and send it to apple.

Acer :: Brand New 7535G Laptop Goes Bust

Sep 15, 2009

I wish to share my experience of owning an ACER 7535G laptop for a fleeting few weeks.

I bought it from Currys on 9th August 2009 for 599.99, because my other laptop was getting kind of old. I work as a software developer so I needed to install all my development software on the new one. Because of this I could not even use it for the first 2 weeks because I did not find time to get everything on it (taking out Windows Vista and installing Windows XP being one of those). Eventually I started using it regularly about 3 weeks after I had bought it. Then exactly 5 weeks after I had bought it, it died on 13th September 2009!

It froze when I was working on it. The screen became garbled although I could still read the last thing I was working on (this to me suggested something wrong with the GPU, or its driver). I had to do a hard reboot by pressing and holding the power button. The next time it froze again before the windows login dialog was displayed, and there were a few pixles on the screen glowing psychedelically, and this time there was also some sound of static coming from the speakers. I tried to hard boot it again and after that nothing ever came up on the screen. The power and other lights do come on, but other than that it is completely dead.

The real shame about it was that it happened exactly 5 weeks after I had bought it. I took it back to the currys that I had bought it from and all they could do was send it back to Acer. They say that if it had happened a week earlier they would have offered a replacement or a refund, and obviously I would have gone for the refund because after this I do not have any confidence in the quality of Acer products.

Dell Studio 1535 :: Cannot Install Windows XP OS On Brand New Laptop

Feb 19, 2009

I just bought a new Dell Studio 1535 and encountered the following problem:

I inserted my windows xp installation cd (as the laptop came with no OS). Windows setup began running, installing a multitude of drivers and files as it should until a message, something in the likes of "starting windows" (up to this point the screen is still the dos-style setup program). After a few seconds, a MS windows blue screen appears, stating that it encountered a fatal error.

Sony :: Brand New Vaio Z Screen

Jan 23, 2010

I just got a Vaio VGN-Z890 off the sonystyle website. As soon as i turned it on I saw a red screen with a pixelated windows symbol. When I got to the desktop screen it looks like there's a red tint covering the whole screen, kinda like someone put red cellophane over it. I thought it was the video card so I updated it from the drivers on the sony support website but I got the same result. I hooked it up to my 32" Samsung tv and it looked beautiful with the right colors. So this leads me to believe that it is a problem with the notebook's lcd. The funny thing is, if I go in and change the gamma and other display settings I can get the screen to change to a green or purple tint. I thought that a failing lcd screen could only be red?

-Also, although I am mechanically inclined, I'd rather let sony open up the laptop and check the gpu connection, lest they blame any problems on me in the future for tampering.

Dell :: Studio XPS 13 And 16 Screen Brand Survey

Jan 17, 2009

Dell uses a selection of display panels from different manufacturers on laptops, even if they are described by dell as being the exact same display when you ordered your laptop.

For example, if you were going to order an XPS M1530 with a WSXGA+ resolution, you have about a 75% chance of getting a Samsung screen, and a 25% chance of getting an LG screen.

(The samsung screen is usually very grainy, and the preferred LG screen has a great contrast ratio, is slightly brighter than the Samsung, and is perfectly clean with no grainyness). Dell pretty much builds your laptop with whatever screen they have left on the shelves.


The purpose of this survey is to find out which LCD panels are undesirable or have anything wrong with them, and which ones you should request when ordering your Studio XPS.

Lenovo X1 Carbon X Series ThinkPad :: Brand New Touch Blue Screen After Sleep?

May 3, 2013

I just got my new carbon touch thinkpad today, and I couldn't be happier, until I closed the lid and reopened it a couple of minutes later. The screen froze for a while and then I got a BSOD with the notice CRITICAL_PROCESS_DIED. I hoped it would be just some coincidence, and updating my drivers and installing windows updates would solve it. So I did, and closed the lid again. After reopening it, I got the same error. So I figured I could just as well restore to my factory settings. Without luck. After updating everything for a second time, still no luck. I check the disk and did a memory check, but everything seems fine. The lenovo Solution center isn't reporting any issues either. I looked into the minidump created by the blue screen, and it seemed the process failing is called csrss.exe.

Dell :: XPS M1330: Sound Has Huge Static Problem

May 13, 2009

Some combination of this laptop and the included Dell earbuds causes major static issues. Here's what I've tried so far:

M1330 speakers: I don't hear any static, but the speakers aren't particularly high quality anyway.

M1330 + earbuds: I can hear static the moment I plug the earbuds in... In fact, it's so overpowering I can hear it even while I'm listening to music.

M1330 + Altec Lansing headset: I couldn't hear any static at all, so I was thinking that it was just crappy earbuds, but..

HP/Compaq :: DV5 Or HDX16

May 17, 2009

I'm in trouble to buy a DV5 (1199) or a HDX16 (1260).

The HDX16 has bigger HD, video card and a wonderfull monitor while the DV5
is lighter and cheaper (I can save 400 euro and the specs are enough for me).

But the real problem is that in my understanding the DV5 has some problem with the warming (in particular there is a very hot point just near the touchpad) and some "click" in the audio, using the WiFi.

HP/Compaq :: Brand New HDX18t With Bad Hinge Panel

Sep 12, 2009

I just received my HDX18t yesterday and noticed that the upper and lower hinge cover does not fit together. In fact it looks like the factory pried it back open - look at attached photo. I called the HDX support line who transferred my to sales who transferred me back to the HDX support line just to find out that I have to send in my laptop to get it fixed in stead of them just sending me the part. The problem is only cosmetic so I don't want to have to send my new computer away for several weeks! Has anyone had a similar experience? Do you think if I talk to the right person at HP they'll just send me the part?

HP Pavilion G6 Display :: How To Decrease Huge Type Size In Gmail

The print size in gmail is huge (about two words on the screen). When  the laptop was new the problem was that the size of print in gmail was too small. I looked up the problem on the web and the solution was to  push a certain key (like shift, ctrl or fn) and at the same time push the + key till the desired size was reached. I have been looking for the similar procedure to decrease the huge type size, to no avail.

HP/Compaq :: Overheating HDX16

Jan 10, 2009

I was looking into buying this laptop but read on the forums that there have been quite a few complaints of overheating. I plan to game a lot with the laptop and so will probably be pushing the laptop. Is it true that the cooling system is quite inefficient? Is it only for games and such, or even for movies, web browsing etc. Was going to go for a Samsung with similar spec but smaller screen cos it has really good cooling.

I'm trying to play games like Age of Empires2, Unreal Tournament, Thief, and NES emulators...and the computer is running somewhat terribly. It stutters during game play...and when i look at walls in first person games...speeds up tremendously (almost like its turbo mode or something). Vsync is off, GPU set to performance.

I uninstalled Vista 64bit and put XP Pro (SP3) 32 bit on it. Nvidia drivers are up to date.

Also is there a way I can see what version driver I have currently installed?
