Sony :: Loose Touchpad Button On UK Vaio CR31

Oct 16, 2009

My Vaio is just out of warranty and it's always had a bit of a clicky odd left-button.

I've noticed that it is gradually getting worse so I'm expecting it to break soon. I should have had it done while the computer was in warranty, but I've heard bad things about their service centre, and they'd probably have charged me for the repair anyway. I did ask them about it toward the end of the warranty period and they wanted me to email them Admin passwords and then pick up the computer for an undisclosed period. I just didn't fancy it - my fault.

Anyway, I have several friends at work who are IT technicians and one of them will have a look. I haven;t found a service manual for the CR series yet, but I'm assuming the buttons are part of the mount for the trackpad and can either be replaced individually or the mount (or pad) can be replaced.

It's just over a year old and I'm thinking about boosting the RAM, HD and upgrading to W7, but on the other hand, I'm not convinced the machine is going to survive another 2-3 years...

Acer :: 3002 LMi HDD Busted

Jan 25, 2009

My 3.5 years old Aspire 3002LMi apparently suffered a hard drive failure yesterday.

First it refused to be woken up from the standby mode, making a new, bad noise. I did get it to power up and run smoothly for several hours, but then the computer shut itself down in the middle of preparing to write a system recovery disk with the Acer eRecovery software. On the next start up, it just made bad noises and got stuck on the black XP start up screen.

I decided to try replacing the HDD rather than buying a new computer, but then I wondered how am I going to get my XP back? I burned something recovery-related on four CDs when prompted right after I had gotten the laptop to run 3.5 years ago. However, I don't have the disks at hand and can't remember what exactly it is that is on those disks. So, my question is this: can I use those four disks to reinstall the old system on a new hard drive?

Plan B is to use hubby's WinXP install CD (OEM version) and my product activation key but can this cause further problems with Windows?

HP/Compaq :: DV4T Cooler - Busted

Apr 17, 2009

I bought a DV4T (T5800) during black Friday last November. Lately it is unstable. The GPU randomly crashes and the fan is louder than when I first bought it. When I put my hand near the fan outlet it doesn't seem to be moving much air even at high speeds.

So I decided to try undervolting. In the process of undervolting I found out that the CPU is hitting its thermal barrier when I run a prime95 torture test (in place FFT's). It hits 85C and the thermal throttling kicks in. This is AFTER I lowered the voltage mind you.

I am just looking for confirmation of my suspicions. I emailed HP tech support, do you think they will give me a hard time with an RMA?

Anyone else have probs with their DV4T and heat?

Dell :: ESATA Speed Still Busted On 1340

Jun 24, 2009

Does anyone have ESATA working fully on this laptop at 3.0gbps? I thought I did but it turned out it would only work for small file transfers. Anything more than a few hundred MB would cause disk I/O errors.

I know that per the old ESATA thread Studio XPS 13, eSATA doesn't work most users worked around this problem by setting the enclosure or disk drive to limit the speed to 1.5gbps.

But I currently have an external mobile disk that doesn't let me jumper the limit (the western digital scorpio black wd3200bekt).

I contacted dell support on this a couple times now but they have no information.

Contrast this to Apple who just had an SATA speed problem with this very same chipset in their macbooks and they fixed it in about a week after the news broke: ...

HP/Compaq :: Crap. Busted TV Tuner Antenna Adapter

Dec 3, 2009

i just built an hd antenna and i was scanning for new channels and it was picking up some awesome channels and then i tripped over the cord and busted that little adapter that converts a normal coax cable to the mini one that plugs into the tv tuner.

anyone know the part number? I've looked everywhere online and can only find the partnumber for the antenna, not the adapter by itself. is this mini plug a standard? i even chatted with hp parts department and they were of no help.

Lenovo T400 / T500 :: Busted Sound On T520

Dec 26, 2014

Sound has busted on T520 for a few weeks now.  I can hear sound when I plug in my earphones, but windows recognizes this as a speaker, conexant 20672.   I checked the "find and fix audio playback problems" in windows 7 to no avail.  I believe I may have to have my speakers repaired.  I am still under base warranty until sometime next year.

Dell :: Loose USB Port

Sep 15, 2009

I have a Dell Studio 15 laptop and one of the USB ports on the right side of my laptop has become loose (I think it happened when I knocked it on something). Whenever I put a USB into the port I can wriggle it side to side & I can't do this with my other ports & until recently I couldn't do it with this one either.

When I put a USB into the port it isn't detected but if I push down on the casing above the port it sometimes is detected but the second I stop pushing down it's undetected again.

Dell :: M4400 Loose Battery

May 23, 2009

I just received my new M4400 and like it. However, the 9 cell battery I have seems to fit a bit loose on the left side of the computer.

While not a huge issue, it is annoying. Does anyone else have this issue? Should I send the battery back or could it be the internal latch that is loose?

Dell :: Inspiron 640 M Hinges Loose ?

Aug 17, 2009

My 640M is still working fine but the LCD hinges seem to be a little loose. i.e. if I tilt the laptop a little, the lcd seems to bend on either side I bend it upon.

I noticed that my friends' laptops - Dell inspirons but newer models ( 14, 1420) etc do not have this loose LCD hinges.

I dont remember if the hinges were loose when a new laptop arrived, but its been about 3 years now and I notice this

Dell :: Loose Hinges On M1530

Feb 28, 2009

I have had my M1530 for abut half a year. At the very beginning I noticed that the screen is not very stiff, for example I the screen lid can be moved by about 2 cm almost with no effort (with one finger) also the he hinges (the bar inside) moves up few millimeters when closing the lid.

It's noticeable when looking at the hinge, and also I can feel that from the force used to move the screen for first 2 cm. The problem des not seem to increase and for the first time I thought its normal, but some time ago I saw an identical XPS without that problem.

HP/Compaq :: Is Yourdv5t Power Jack Loose

Jan 30, 2009

I just bought a brand spankin new HP dv5t series, got it 3 days ago, i inspected it when i got it out of the box and it was beautiful.

However a little later I noticed that the power (cord side) that you plug in to charge was pretty loose.

Now just today I tripped on the long part of the cord... it moved the laptops position on the desk a few inches, and enough to pull it out of the box in the middle of the cord, and it feels even loser.. but I cant tell if it really did, i might just be paranoid.

This worries me because on my last two laptops they were pretty tight and had no play in them, both of the ended up broken.

HP/Compaq :: Test Out Win+B On A Broken/desoldered/loose GPU

Oct 28, 2009

If you have an Phoenix BIOS (there should be a small logo at the right lower corner..)

And with a broken/desoldered/loose GPU (black screen with blue bars)

Can you press Help Win+B (or ctrl-b, alt-b) then turn on the laptop. Does it make beeps?, if you put in a USB floppy disk, with a disk inside, does it try to read it?

If so it might be possible to rewrite the BIOS so that it will initialize the "Vidock/" pci-express adapter FIRST.

Just like how in BIOS you can "set it" (via setup) to initialize the AGP or PCI video card FIRST, or PCI-E or PCI video card FIRST.

HP/Compaq :: HP9743CL- Loose Wireless Connection In 4 Minutes

Jan 3, 2009

I have a HP9743CL sitting next to my old 2529Cl and both connect to my home wireless network. Two weeks ago the 9743CL worked fine but now it drops the connection after 4 minutes. I turned off the firewall on the laptop thinking maybe it was blocking something. That didn't help.

I turned off the firewall on the router Westell327W and that didn't help. in the mean time my 2529Cl just keeps plugging along. staying connected. Is there a setting I accidentally changed.

When it dies and I try to have internet explorer fix the problem if comes back with a statement saying my firewall is blocking port 80. Well, now that everything is turned off what is the cause.

I was running zonealarm on the 9743CL and the stock firewall on the Westell327W.

Dell :: XPS M1530 Display Problem, Loose Ribbon Cable??

I have an XPS M1530, 18 months old, and I am very happy with it.

Over the past few weeks I have noticed a problem with the display, any white parts of the screen image show as red or turquoise colour heavily lined, or black text may have a red halo.

I can easily correct this by changing the angle of tilt of the screen....

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?

Dell :: Replacing Headphone Jacks

Jun 12, 2009

One of my headphone jacks on my M1530 is broken and needs to be replaced. Are those part of a separate board that can be hooked into the motherboard without the need of any soldering? I'd like to get this issue fixed, and don't want to send it into dell depot for repair. So if it's just a board that needs to be replaced, I'd like to replace it myself. If so, what would the name of this board be? I haven't had much luck looking through the forum or online.

Dell :: Why Does My XPS16 Have Two Headphone Jacks?

Apr 28, 2010

When only one works at a time?

I tried to watch a movie with a friend yesterday, and we had to share a single pair of headphones.

Why have two headphone jacks? Am I missing something?

How do I get both headphone jacks to be active at once?

With the track record of this computer, I wouldn't be surprised if it was something wrong. 1 screen, two keyboards, a palm rest, and a DVD drive have been replaced already... all within a month.

Acer :: 3680 Audio/headphone

Sep 24, 2007

This laptop has new install of WinXP Pro. All drivers are good, and it is working fine. It has a short history of headphones not working when connected.

I have found a fix, if you could call it that. When XP loads, connecting the headphones mutes the speakers, but there is no audio on the headphones. If I close the computer lid down and it drops into sleep mode? When it wakes, the headphones work fine for the entire session. Works every time!

Realtek drivers and software run the audio. I have exhaustively scrutinised all the settings but have found no anomoly.

Apple :: 13" Only Has 1 Headphone Plug

Jun 10, 2009

i was looking at the pictures and i saw that insted of a headphone and a mic plug it only has 1, does that mean it works as both and the apple 3g headset will work perfectly for it?

Also I never had a mac b4 but the 13" macbook pro is really tempting, I always heard stuff about macs like their bad for gaming, works bad with adobe flash, and not alot of software out there for it. Any of that true?

Dell :: Weird XPS 1340 Headphone Noise

Nov 30, 2009

I've noticed (yet another) strange problem with my XPS 1340. I'll be listening to audio through headphones (only noticed it when iTunes was open - not always playing though) when every few hours or so,

a mid-pitched honking / buzzing noise, at most a couple seconds in duration, will sound. I've only had the laptop a couple weeks or so, and it's happened maybe a half dozen times so far.

I've never heard the noise coming from the speakers, only the headphones plugged into the front jacks
