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.
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.
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?
I purchased a VGN-AR630E sometime around January 2008 that has been completely awesome up until last month, when I had to turn off the laptop during a game with the power button.
When it restarted, the initial VIAO screen had a bunch of vertical lines, the following screen had a bunch of ((((( on it, and windows would not start outside of safe mode. I paid Sony to connect to my laptop to fix the issue which I was told the first time was virus related, the next time it was due to using a registry booster program a year ago.
By this time the problem had worsened to the point where I could not get into windows even with safe mode, so I purchased the VIAO recovery disks and set my computer to original factory condition. Initially this worked and the computer ran great for about a day, until I installed a game and ran it .....
In the past I have owned Sony Vaio desktops and Iím now looking at a Vaio laptop. I am currently looking at the VGN-NS235J/P. It can be found on the Sony site as well as Amazon (pre-order only). (Sorry, not sure if I can post links here.)My question is regarding the processor. If I look at the Sony site it shows a thumbnail of the processor being a Centrino 2, but if I look at Amazon it shows it being a Pentium Dual-Core. It has been about five years since I bought a new computer so I am trying to figure out the details. From what Iíve read on the Intel site the Centrino is a much newer as well as bigger/better/faster processor. I am a PhotoShop junkie and need speed.
I own a VIAO Z VGN-Z90NS (bought in Japan), did a fresh install with vista retail and have also changed the OS to Windows 7. Since I am not able to download drivers from Japanese VIAO Homepage I downloaded the drivers from US.
When I watch any kind of video i.e. flash video, video of Youtube etc. I experience some "lags" with the videos. The videos clips or flash don't run smoothly. I wonder if it's connected to the problem that I didn't use Japanese drivers?
I noticed that most of their current computers came out last July/August. Does Sony completely replace their whole line up every year or sometimes do they just update the previous year's model? Are any of the current models they offer more than a year old? How long before new laptops come out do they get announced?
I finally really got tired of Vista Home with it's limitations and quirks, and want to go back to Win2k. Anybody tried to load win2k on a FW series VIAO machine like this or similar? I found most w2k drivers inc. the LAN and WL card, so far so good. I've not tried the install yet, waiting for a new Seagate SATA 7200 320G HD, don't want to mess with this one (SATA 250G 5400) until I have the 2K system up and running on the new HD.
Guess I'll need to slipstream a boot CD with the SATA drivers, SP4, etc. Never done it, but have seen plenty of guides out there. Maybe... MAYBE, I'll try for a w2k/vista dual boot system, buy only after w2k is humming along nicely. I'm guessing this machine must fly with a relatively lightweight O/S like w2k (compared to a hog like vista).
