Sony :: Why Is Vaio SR So Flimsy And Uses Cheap Plastic

Nov 25, 2009

I'm going to be ordering the Sony SR in a couple of days probably. Today I went to Best Buy to look at it. Everything about it I liked except for the casing. It's so flimsy and seems like it's made out of cheap plastic. I recognize that this helps to keep it light, but still, just touching it made me feel like my palms will break the computer after a while, lol. Seriously, why do they make it like that? The thing bends so easily, including the screen. Making it of something a more strong would not add considerable weight!

Sony :: Plastic Blank For Optical Drive In VAIO SR

Nov 30, 2009

if there is a blank you can replace the optical drive with in the SR series. Preferably a part that is sold by Sony themselves. I hardly use my DVD drive and having it power on and then off each time I bring the notebook out of standby drains battery. I also intend to reduce the weight of the SR by removing the optical drive.

With my old Thinkpad, I was able to remove the optical drive and replace it with a blank fairly easily. I think Lenovo calls it a "travel blank."

Dell :: E6400: Plastic Unsnaps From Latch Holder Area

Nov 22, 2009

I dropped my Latitude E6400 while it was in my backpack and the palmrest plastic next to the latch holder unsnapped from the base. I snapped it back in. About a month later, it was unsnapped again and I snapped it back in again. I don't remember dropping it. I wonder:

1. Has this happened to anybody?
2. Do you think I broke anything?

Dell Latitude E6640 :: Plastic Spacer In SmartCard Slot Cannot Be Removed?

Nov 19, 2014

I have a Latitude E6640 and wish to use the SmartCard slot. Unfortunately there is a plastic spacer in this slot that will not come out. My software sees the firmware on the laptop so I know the hardware for this is present. How is this plastic spacer removed? Removal of the HD for better leverage is no support. It appears that the top cover over the keyboard would have to be removed but that makes no sense. If that is the case how is this done?

HP/Compaq :: DV4 Notebook

Feb 15, 2010

My friend is having problems with her HP DV4 Notebook.

1) The keyboard goes into crazy mode every now and then.
Sometimes she will press a key and it will take several seconds to appear.
Other times, she will hit backspace while in Internet Explorer, and it will take her into a new tab or a whole new program.
Pressing a key once, such as an r for example, will lead to 20 some r's before it stops.

2) The fan seems very loud. She says it was like this since the day she bought it. Seems excessively loud to me.

Dell :: Cut The Center Out Of My M1340 Edge-to-edge Plastic Screen, Its An Antiglare Beneath

Nov 7, 2009

The thing they call "edge to edge glass" which is really just plastic above an ordinary screen. The thing is, that the screen under that edge to edge plastic is a nice anti-glare screen, no kidding! You can see this if you take your laptop in sunlight and tilt it the right way.

So what's happening is you're getting the worst part of an anti-glare screen (reduced contrast ratio) plus the worst part of a glossy screen (unless you have a really pretty face).

I took the plastic thing off, cut along the black/clear border, pulled out the middle, and stuck the centerless border back on the laptop.

Result? THIS SCREEN IS FANTASTIC. Yeah ok, of course I would say that. But if you knew me, you'd know that was way out of the ordinary and really meant that THIS SCREEN IS FANTASTIC.

One thing you may not have considered is that the screen in its default position has yet another flaw, both sides of that glossy plastic thing are glossy, so some of the light coming from the screen is reflected back to the screen, and as you know light reflected onto the screen has a yellowish tint. That is my guess as to why the whites on this screen are really really white now, and the screen is much brighter. This also explains why other 300nit screens used to look so much brighter than this.

I will have more pics when I am able to charge the battery to my good camera. If anyone has any questions about removing that plastic thing I'll be happy to answer your questions, it's actually pretty easy. For those interested, here is how I did it:

1. I removed the "star" head screws, this was accomplished not with a special star head screw driver, but an ordinary flat head precision screw driver.

2. Put some paper over a hacksaw blade to avoid scratching, wedged it under the plastic near the top where the camera is, and snapped out the first of the several lock-in points on along the top edge. I proceeded to detatch the rest of the top of the screen in this way.

3. Both the left and right sides were held on mostly by adhesive, the very edge point locks in slightly, but the efforts removing these sides are focused mainly on separating the adhesive bond.

4. I pulled upward on the plastic and it came right off, there seems to be no adhesive or lock-in points on the bottom side.

5. Using the center of the screen as a test area, I tested several cutting utilities and decided on the utility knife. To my surprise, the plastic was about 1mm thick.

6. I clamped the screen down to the table, with a straight edge positioned 1mm inward of the black line, to give headroom for errors.

7. I cut along these lines, and repeated step 6 for each side, and pushed out the center to reveal the border piece that now resembled a common laptop screen enclosure border.

8. I used a medium grit sand paper to bring the cut lines to meet the black lines, and finished it off with a fine grit sand paper.

9. I applied some electrical tape to the area between the edge of the screen itself, and the edge of the laptop on the right and left sides because there was light leakage, and then popped the border back on and screwed it down.

Found the charger! Here's the high res shots. They do *some* justice to the screen quality.

Dell :: I Cut The Center Out Of My M1340 Edge-to-edge Plastic Screen, Its An Antiglare Beneath...

Dell :: Vostro Screen Wobbled/looseunable To Repair, Now Plastic Around Screen Is Loose

Nov 13, 2008

I have a Vostro 1500, which I bought 10 months ago. About 3 months ago the screen became loose and wobbled about 10 degrees when computer was moved or if I was on the train and it went over bumps. I tightened the screws as advised but this did not have any real effect. Dell engineer came and replaced the back cover with new hinges, (as they though hinges may be broken/at fault but they were fine,) but some wobble was still noticable so he ordered a new base. He came today and took the screen out complete with all the screen casing out of the old base, and put it into the new base, but still wobbled, so just put it back in the old base as it wouldn't have cured the problem.

Now yesterday, after he put the new back cover on, he had to take the plastic around the front of the screen off. After he put it together I noticed that the screen is no longer flush with the plastic surround and it annoys me! Am I just being finicky/picky or should I ask them to fix it?

HP/Compaq :: How To Connect Notebook To SD-TV From VGA-out

Jun 12, 2009

I have dv6700 which came with a s-video out and I cant thank it enough for the countless times it has come in handy. Now my friend bought her dv4t and it came with a vga-out only. I know there is a HDMI port, but we are trying to connect to a SD-TV here and that doesnt support HDMI. I bought a vga-to-rca adapter in the past to use with IBM T60 notebook and it didnt work on that. Probably that notebook inherently didnt support tv-out from that vga port. Does HP notebook have the capability to do tv-out from vga port and if yes, what do I need to connect it to a standard definition tv set?

Sony :: Black Carbon Fibre Or Black Plastic Lid Of My New Z

Nov 25, 2009

I just got a brand new customized Sony VGN-Z890FKB. The sales representative of the website where I bought it from, states all their models come with the Premium Carbon Fibre lid, however I find it very hard to tell the difference between the two.

Nowhere it is indicated that this one has the carbon fibre lid. On the side of the box it says B (Black) so I got confused.

The lid is black indeed, if I look close enough I see small silverish specs mixed with the black, even on the bottom side of the laptop. The palmrest/keyboard area is a darker black without silverish specs in it.

A friend of mine has a Sony SZ and there you can tell it is a black Carbon Fibre lid (black with a hint of purple in it - when you angle the laptop from one light source to the other + you somewhat see horizontal lines on the lid of the Sony SZ).
Also if you look carefully on the sonystyle site, you see those same horizontal-like lines on the Carbon Fibre Black lid of the Sony Z contrary to the Black plastic lid.

How can one tell whether his Sony laptop has a carbon fibre or black plastic lid?
