Dell :: Dust Speck Behind LCD Pane

Apr 6, 2009

I've got a small dust speck behind the LCD pane on my new Dell SXPS 1340, so no amount of rubbing is going to help.

I've contacted Dell, and after a not so short in time yet short in number set of emails, they told me that my LCD screen isn't in a condition to warrant a replacement.

Fine, I don't need it replaced; I just want the spec out of there .....

Dell :: Dust Particle Between Glass And LCD

Feb 25, 2009

I got my Studio XPS 13 last night and spent about 5 hours installing Vista Business 64-bit from scratch and setting everything up.

It has been running great so far; however, I just noticed one or two dust particles between the glass and the lcd.

What should I do? It only bothers me when the background is white or light color. Should I ignore all that hard work and get it exchanged or am I being too anal about it? What are the chances of the next one being tightly sealed?

HP/Compaq :: HDX-18. Trying To Figure Fan Out.

Mar 20, 2010

I've got a HDX-18, (X18-1374ca) Centrino Q9000 cpu, 4GB RAM, Windows 7 64bit. F.24 BIOS from factory. Had it for two months. I use this as a desktop replacement, no gaming, plugged in all the time. I have Power Options set to Balanced.

Out of the box the BIOS has the cooling fan set to run all the time. I had it that way for two months, the fan runs on what I'd say medium speed all day, never changes speed or anything all day even when the screens off and gone in to standby for ages....the fan still spins same speed, same sound. Its not annoying or loud. But I wonder how many years it will last (not as easy to change as a desktop cooling fan).

So in the BIOS I now turned the fan to always off. So its off when I am not at the laptop. But just browsing the net and typing this the fan goes off then comes on full blast for a minute and then off...and on and off, and so on. The trouble with that is the noise! The full speed fan is quite noisy, distracting. I am not complaining as I know it has to now run fast since it was off the cpu heated up.

The only place I can see to do anything else with the fan is Power Options in Control Panel, in Advanced power options, under Processor power management I can set the System cooling policy to Active or Passive....what ever that does, it doesn't make any differences.

I am curious what other people might have done. I am only trying to get it so the fan runs medium, quietly, when I am at the laptop and goes off when its in standby. It doesn't sleep, I have sleep disabled, just standby, HDDs still On.

I have a older DV9774ca and its fan comes on slow or medium speed and even off as I use the laptop, not full speed unless I have some intense graphics or video going. If I am only browsing the net the fan on that would even turn completely off, no spinning (I looked). Admitting it is s different cpu and laptop, thats the sort of behaviour I am looking for for this one.

HP/Compaq :: Sent In My HDX To Get Glass Replaced, Received A Re-imaged Hard Drive

Mar 19, 2009

I sent my laptop in due to dust being behind the Infinity Glass and some scratches incurred by the speaker grilles on the HDX16.

I received my laptop back last night. The glass was replaced (woohoo!) however the hard drive was re-imaged as well (not so woohoo!).

I admit I did not back up my data. Here's why - 1.) I was never told that data backup was necessary. I have my original chat transcript showing that I was never informed of a possible system restore. I have a chat transcript from last night confirming, from HP, that I was never informed. 2.) The glass was being replaced. Nothing internally needed to be touched.

I attribute this to going to a shop to get your car's windsheild replaced only to find out they also rebuilt your engine. It makes zero sense.

I've contacted HP to see what they can do about this and they stand behind their warranty information which states they are not responsible for lost data. I can understand that. However, they are responsible for their staff and their ability to properly inform customers what may happen when a laptop is sent in for service.

Heck, I don't even know WHAT's reasonable at this point. I could go all out and get my laywer involved but it seems like a waste of time.

HP/Compaq :: HDX16T: Fan Always On

Apr 20, 2009

Have anyone notice this: The HDX16t will run the fan if the power plug is plugged in and will do so until you hit 100% on your battery meter.

I went into the BIOS to disable "Enable Fan Always On." And yes, when ever my notebook is not connected to power, the fan is OFF. But as soon as I plug in the power chord, back it turns on. While charging, as soon as I pull the chord (even though the battery hasn't met 100%), the fan turns off.

And another question, my HDX16t has this high pitch noise that you can hear. It's sort of like that same issue back with the hold dv6000t models.

How do I disable that, or remove that noise. And no, its not coming from my SSD or my Cd drive.

HP/Compaq :: HP HDX16t: Return

Jul 23, 2009

i ordered an HDX16t for college recently, and I realized I didn't order it with the backlit keyboard I wanted.. yeah i was dumb but college is still a month away so when it arrives, would it be free for me to return it ?? i also used a coupon code NBZ2897 which gives $250 off.. so when the laptop comes the coupon will be expired. does that mean i have to pay that extra? or can i just return it and just pay the extra $50 for the backlit keyboard, whether a backlit keyboard is worth all this trouble are welcome too haha i mean i dont gota look at the keyboard when i type but i still think having 1 would be nice

HP/Compaq :: How Upgradeable Is The HDX16t?

Jun 6, 2009

How many hard drives can be placed in it at one time?DDR2 or DDR3 RAM?CPU upgrades possible (quad in the future?)

I'm looking into a college notebook that has great specs. I know it seems a little on the big side, but I think I can manage. Usually college students don't take laptops to class all the time, right?

HP/Compaq :: Firewire HDX16t

Sep 16, 2009

I'm having a problem connecting my video camera to my HDX. The port itself seems to work as I was able to connect my external hard drive to it and it was found.

It's not the camera as I hooked it up to a different PC's firewire port and it was found. Not the cable either.

HP/Compaq :: HDX16t Owners

Jan 6, 2009

Other then HDX what else did you consider and why?

Other then the HD screen and 5.1 sound what other features sold you on the HDX? What was unique about this unit that sold you on the HDX?

Did you get Blu-Ray?

I was considering the HDX16t, now looking at the ASUS N50Vn-B1b. It is not a 16" screen and is more of a traditional laptop, however it appears to have superior components for a far better price after today's HP price increases.

I spent a lot of time making my decision, I really hate to change direction at this point, but can't justify the new pricing and supporting HP poor marketing decisions.

HP/Compaq :: HDX16t Or DV6t For Gaming

Mar 19, 2009

Buying a new laptop soon... choices are a HDX16t (P8400 and Nvidia 9600M GT 512MB) or a DV6t (T6400 and ATi HD 4650 1GB). I'm just looking to play Everquest 2, and even though it's a 2004 release, it's pretty intensive. So I'm wondering if I should deal with the slower CPU and slightly better GPU or vice versa?

HP/Compaq :: Hdx16t Upgrade To Windows 7

Oct 28, 2009

I just upgraded to Windows 7, downloaded the drives off HP website and most everything is working great if not better. I've got 4 items under device manager (3 base system devices and 1 unknown device) that don't have drivers. I'm not sure exactly what those are. Quick launch works except for the base/treble, and ql volume works, but doesn't show up on screen. Other than that I haven't noticed anything else amiss.

HP/Compaq :: Install Windows 7 On HDX16T

Jan 14, 2009

I just tried doing this a couple days ago and at first it was working perfectly. About a day later when I came home from work and turned it on, it took about 3 minutes to load and I got all kinds of errors. Aero Glass was disabled, it told me that it couldn't initialize the "Windows Notification Service service", and all other manner of problems existed. I tried doing a system restore to a configuration that was about a day older, and that seemed to work the rest of the night. When I came home again the next day and started it up, the same problems were back.

I'm ready to do another reformat and reinstall, but I'm curious how everyone else is doing this (successfully). The method I used last time was to just let it install drivers for everything it found, then supplement what it couldn't find with drivers off the HP website. Unfortunately there are about 20 different HDX16 configs on there, so I'm not sure if I got the right one. Are the drivers different among them?

HP/Compaq :: HDX16t Vs HDv6t Vs Studio XPS 16

Mar 21, 2009

the HDX16t. There is a 25% coupon going on right now, and I'm really thinking about pulling the trigger. But I thought I'd ask here, to HP owners, if there is a better choice.

Is the HDv6t a better buy than the HDX? I want roughly a 15.4" screen, but I don't mind a 16". I do want a 1920x1080 resolution, and I am looking for performance with some graphic ability (I am interested in the 1GB video card that HP offers with the HDX16).

Lastly, does the RGBLED screen that the Dell Studio XPS16 make it that much better than the HDX? I've been told that it's a decided advantage to Dell, but I'm not sure how.

HP/Compaq :: HDX16t 1366x768 Vs. 1920x1200 Res

Mar 30, 2009

HDX16t and I'm having issues deciding between different models.

The difference in the screen resolution would cost me around $100. I would never really use the 1920x1200 for gaming, but it would come in handy while doing homework with multiple windows.

I currently have a DV9500 and a DV5. The DV9500's 1440x900 is excellent for me and I would see no reason to go above that resolution. However, the DV5's 1280x800 is just too small for me (almost even for internet browsing). It just doesn't seem like the 1366x768 would be much different. So for those who have the lower res HDX16t model, would you upgrade to the larger resolution if you had the chance or are you happy with your current setup?

HP/Compaq :: Dust In Infinty Display

Feb 12, 2009

Last week I sent in my HP DV5T to get fixed because one of the supervisors set up a repair because I told them that there was dust between my Inifinity Screen and LCD and that there are keyboard impressions on my screen. I send it in, and wait and check the order status.

Last night I checked and saw that I had a service charge of $428.35 so I called and questioned them. They told me that we had to "Escalate" the problem and that I have to personally talk to a Case Manager. I call the Manager and I tell him my problems. He tells me that the two problems that I have are out of warranty claims and that it is physical.

I argueed for almost an hour and still nothing. I gave up and they are in the process of returning my laptop. Thing is that, he said that the issue of having dust and keyboard impressions are now in the "ISSUE TRACKER" status and that HP will be looking out for others that have the same problem.

So what I'm hoping is that many of you that have DUST or Keyboard impressions with your INFINITY Display, call up HP and complain because they said if they hear about it enough, that it will fall into a Design Flaw and that we will all get Brand New screens.

I've noticed that all HP Infinity Displays get dust by people that posted comments here on the Notebook Review, so whether or not you have a DV5T or anything else, just as long as you have a INFINITY SCREEN, you should call and complain because we should not be held responsible with the repair costs for a design flaw.

HP/Compaq :: Terrible WEI Score On HDX16T

Jan 12, 2009

Scored a 3.0 on the WEI with the following scores:

Processor: 5.7
RAM: 5.5
Graphics: 4.8
Gaming Graphics: 4.9
Primary Hard Disk: 3.0

Obviously most of it looks right except the hard disk. I have the 320 GB 5400 RPM HD that came with the HDX16T. Yesterday I installed Windows 7 Beta and I tried to install all of the drivers from the HP website (except I pulled the latest Nvidia drivers straight from their site instead).

I don't recall seeing a driver for the hard disk, but windows seemed to recognize it.

HP/Compaq :: Ze4430us Finally Bit The Dust ... RIP

Apr 6, 2010

My wifes trusty laptop of over 8 years has finally succumbed, it now begins to boot, then stops, and restarts, rinse repeat.

No screen activity, no post, just cpu fan, lights and then nothing, restart.

Kinda the restart of death. I've taken out the mainboard and all other componants and cleaned, then replaced, still nothing.

HD was already removed and data transferred, she's sharing my DV7 now in win 7 ...

(really think MB, pwr supply of some sort) Plan on getting her a new one, but if someone knew of a known issue with these symptoms ...

HP/Compaq :: HP HDX16T- Locking Computer

Sep 10, 2009

I'm in college right now and one day I lowered my screen as to not to tmpt my roommate into looking at my windows and stuff. I went to take a shower, came back, and my screen was in a viewing position. The only reason i didn't close it was because I have some stuff I'd like to get continuous updates on on my computer. I was wondering if there was a way to basically lock the computer, without really shutting it off or preventing it from doing it's thing as it does normally. I'd like to be able to unlock it with a fingerprint scan. My laptop is an HP HDX16T.

Remember i don't want to put it to sleep or anything, just to lock it to prevent anyone from actually using it, like locks the mouse, the keyboard and stuff.

HP/Compaq :: Flush Screen Vs Infinity On HDX16t

Mar 26, 2009

I'm looking to buy an HDX16t. I have to buy refurbished due to funds, but there is a 90 day warranty so I can send it in if there's anything wrong (fingers crossed). However, there's a $50 difference between two models.The differences are 3GB vs 4GB memory, 250GB vs 320GB HDD, and then an interesting "16.0" WXGA High Definition Ultra-wide Flush Glass Display (1366768)" vs "16" Diagonal High Definition HP Ultra Brightview Infinity Display (1366768)". These descriptions come from the same website. Would I be correct in saying that HP never offered anything less than the Ultra Brightview Infinity display on their HDX16t models, and that these two monitors are the same?
