Dell :: 1705 Warranty

Aug 14, 2009

I have a Dell Inspiron e1705 with the following specs:

Dual Core 1.86
120GB HD
ATI x1400

The warranty is getting ready to end in a few days so I called Dell to see how much it would be to extend it. They gave me a quote of $169 for one year or $255 for two years (complete care would be additional).

Dell :: 1705 Mod

Aug 1, 2007

I know that many have done this mod on here and have created guides for which i have used for my situation. Now, the problem is that I have all my hardware in but not really have the correct drivers. 1) the bios version that I have if I'm not wrong is the A00. From what I read I need the A01 correct? Or is there a better? Also, the 7950GTX that I put in is recognized by the computer but doesn't perform well at all. For one, I know that I don't have the correct drivers for it. Where could i get good drivers for this card besides Dell? Is the whole problem a result from not flashing the bios? It doesn't have the XPS bios.

Dell :: My 1705 Goes Zap

May 11, 2008

I got a Dell 1705 it since has been doing some really really uncool stuff. Like I'll be playing a game and it pauses with a click sound and sometimes I swear the darn thing is shocking me when I touch its side. It could be static electric but it seems to happen a lot. But, away I tried a friends Dell ac power plug and all the same stuff happens.

Anyone know what the deal is or maybe how to prevent what's happen? Using the computer isn't as cool as it used to be....

Any ideas on where to start?
The wifi is activated in the BIOS.

Dell :: 1705 Upgrade

Mar 21, 2010

I know everyone hates these types of posts, but I do need help. I am a desktop guy with a laptop. I am trying to decide what, if any upgrades I should make to my Dell E1705.

This thing is SLOW. It currently takes about 10 minutes to boot the darn thing and almost a minute to launch a web browser. I have to do something. It is to the point that my wife and I never turn it on. My desktop probably will be upgraded in about a year, so I am looking for a little bump rather than spending $1,000 on a new laptop. The current configuration is below:

Intel Core Duo T2500 @ 2.00 gigahertz
Windows XP w/ SP3
98 GB 5400 rpm hard drive (33 GB free)
2 GB of Pc-5300 RAM
ATI Mobility Radeon X1400 video card

My though was to upgrade the following:

4GB (2 X 2GB) of Mushkin Enhanced Essentials PC2-5300 Ram ($95)
WD Scorpio Black 320GB 7200 rpm Hard Drive ($70)
Windows Home Premium 32-bit ($100)

I know that it may only recognize 3.2GB of the ram, but I am willing to pay for even just the 1.2GB more. I do worry slightly about Windows 7 with my processor, which I think is one of the two major bottlenecks. Unfortunately it, and the second concern - the video card Ė cost $300 +. So I figure for just under $300 I can breathe a couple more years out of it. I am not a heavy user, mostly multimedia and productivity apps like MS Office.

Dell :: 1705 Video Drivers

Jun 15, 2008

i changed out the video card and in the process I did a drivers cleaner and deleted all the old video drivers now the problem is that when It restarted it did so without any drivers the card and the screen works (did a diagnostics test) but how do I go about reinstalling the drivers so I can get the display to come up after the Windows XP logo.

I can hear the wndows screen coming up but the screen is blank. The 7900GTX card went out so I went to to the 7800GS and I have the drivers just need to get them installed.

So is there something I can do to to bring everything normal?

Dell :: 1705 To I1720 To M1710

Oct 3, 2007

Well as some of you know I got my Inspiron E1705 replaced with an Inspiron 1720 because my E1705 was having major heat problems.

I always noticed that the E1705 ran pretty hot, but I started monitoring it latley and the CPU and GPU reached temps around 200 F...mainly due to the Geforce Go 7800 heat issues.

Called DELL and they were going to replace my system with an Inspiron 1721.. I raised cain and they sent an Inspiron 1720.

I was actually impressed with the 1720's looks. It is well built, and I loved the dual hard drive capability, as well as built in MIC.. and it had a faster burner DVDRW. I also loved the Chocolate..AKA Espresso Brown color.

I was VERY disappointed that it did not have HDMI or no longer DVI built in as I have a 52" Samsung LCD that loves to take advantage of this connection.

Well I am NOT a huge gamer... but I do like to occasionally game, and when I started doing benchmarks with Vista's performance analyzer and noticed video LAG while doing simple tasks but serious multitasking, I was very disappointed...............

Dell :: REAL Max RAM Amount For 1705

Apr 9, 2008

FAQ indicates 4GB as max amount of RAM. But Dell's own data at [url] says 2GB.

To make things more confusing, some posts on notebookreview listed that exact URL as proof that the 1705 would use 4GB. So the Dell info was probably revised from 4GB to 2GB.

Dell :: 1705 Blue Screen Of Death

I've been getting the occasional BSOD on my 1705 with the 7900 GS. Is there any fix for this? I saw the one for the 7950 GTX but I don't know if that works the same as the 7900 GS.

Dell :: Square Trade Warranty Or Warranty?

May 16, 2009

I just recently placed an order for a Studio 1737 (replacing an Inspiron E1705). It comes with a 1 year warranty.

I'm debating whether it's worth spending $200+ to upgrade to a Dell 3 year warranty or should I get a 3 year Square Trade Warranty for less than $150 (I can get one for around $120 after a coupon)?

Dell :: Warranty

Jan 4, 2009

I have a Dell XPS1330 and have a problem with it and I dont know if my laptop is still under warranty.

I searched on Dell's website with my service tag and the only thing I found was that I have a "Rapid Response Depot"? What does it mean? Does it mean that I can send my laptop to Dell to be repaired?

Dell :: Should Buy Warranty And Replacement?

Apr 13, 2010

I read lots of people getting replacements for their 2-4 yr old laptops with Dell warranty. I've been using my e1505 since June 2007 and just ordered 1558 last weekend, but with only 1-yr basic warranty.

Which warranties are those people using? Premium or Advanced? Which is comparable to "Complete Care"? Also, would it be cheaper to buy more expensive warranty at the checkout or buy extension once I receive the system?

Warranties cost only a few hundred dollars and people just seem to be getting amazing replacement laptops, like e1505 to SXPS 16.

Dell :: What Warranty For Studio 16 XPS

Mar 10, 2010

my question is, what's the best value with these warranties? I know I should probably be protected, but should I assume that after 1 year I'd be in the clear anyway? Also, I think the 1645 doesn't come with 2 year warranties (for some reason) so those would be out of the question.

Dell :: Transferred The Warranty

Nov 12, 2009

The reseller transferred the warranty and this was evident by tech support provided in the first few months of ownership. I recently contacted Dell due to my Nvidia Geforce 8800M graphics card not being disabled by Windows. I assume I have a physical problem with my card..

Dell now says I do not have a warranty, that it was never transferred. I pointed out the early tech support and the fact that I know for a fact the warranty was transferred by the reseller. Dell tells me to recontact the reseller and again have the warranty transferred. The reseller is out of business..

Am I up a creek without a paddle or is Dell sandbagging due to the onslaught of video problems with XPS M1730's..

Dell :: Warranty Extension

May 28, 2010

To keep is short I was trying to extend the warrant for my xps m1530.The online systems doesnít seem to be working after hitting purchase options the page just keeps reloading with Firefox or IE so itís off to the phone.

My first call I get a quote of $169 for a 1 year or $255 plus a $50 rebate for 2 years. Can you imagine I get disconnected? I call back now I get a quote of $179 for a one year and $254 with no rebate available for 2 years. I ask to speak to a supervisor and of course get disconnect again.

Now I try the chat system here is what I got from them.
05/27/2010 02:33:26PMAgent (E&A_RR_Rep_Rick): "for one year, it would be $279, and for two years it's $418.69"
05/27/2010 02:33:48PMAgent (E&A_RR_Rep_Rick): "i could offer a $75 giftcard on either one, but that's the only price i have"

While Iím chatting a supervisor calls me and we agree on a deal for $254 for 2 years. I didnít have a credit card with me so said she would call me at 1pm to make the purchase. She calls gets all the information goes off to process it. Comes back no saying it would be $279 for 1 and $418 for 2 with no gift card available.

I asked to speak to her supervisor and of course disconnected again if you can imagine that. Well thanks for letting me vent.Dell has just lost a long time customer.

Dell :: Latitude OS And Warranty

Apr 6, 2009

Going to purchase an E6500 and am wondering which OS to go with. This laptop will need to play well with the other machines on our home intranet in terms of file/printer sharing and such. Two of these machines have vista home and two with xp home.

The options are:
vista home basic - included in price
vista business - +$50

1. What are main differences between vista home and vista business?

2. Are both the vista home and vista business 64 bit? If not, how important is the whole 32 bit, 64 bit deal?

In addition, some clarification on the warranty options would be appreciated. I did read the description but am still a little confused.

The options are:

3 year limited + 3 year mail in - included in price
So this means 3 year warranty total, possibly no understandable English speaking phone support, and you must mail in the machine for repair .....

Dell :: Need Warranty With An M4400?

Mar 8, 2009

I'm about to purchase an M4400 as a mobile editing station but I've only got one reservation. Basically, I can buy one with a dell 3 year warranty or I can buy a better speced one for 20% less that doesn't have a warranty as it's from a liquidation of assets sale.

Now, I'm pretty handy with computers/laptop and in the past I've taken apart laptops to replace CPU's, motherboards, hard drives, etc. so I'm fairly comfortable with fixing things when they go wrong. But my question is whether I should expect things to go wrong. I'm especially concerned about the screen and the occurrence of dead pixels. Is this commonplace and how many dead pixels does it take for dell to accept a returns anyway?

At home I have a Dell 2407WFP-HC and I've never had any problems with it. I built my desktop computer myself and I'm not concerned with parts of it going wrong as it's easy to find replacement parts, but the same can't be said for laptops, and there is a significant cost differential!

So, is it worth paying a 25% premium to have the dell warranty? I'm a frugal man, and a penny saved is always a good thing in my book, but not at the expense of having to shell out in 6 months when something goes wrong .....

Dell :: Warranty Concern

Dec 29, 2009

Well, let me start off by saying that I received by M1530 at the beginning of this year as an exchange for a Vostro 1500 I had a bunch of little issues with.

To be honest, there was nothing truly wrong with the Vostro 1500, but I'm a sly-talking-Computer-Science-major that was sick of dell support giving me the run-around dozens of times, so I bullied them and got a $1400 system to replace my original $800 purchase

Now the dreaded heat issues related to the 8600m gt are starting to rear their ugly heads. Dell covers this issue a year past the regular warranty, so I have until February or something for the card to die or warrant a replacement.

So my issue is that I originally did not want to deal with dell support so I went ahead and put some AS-5 on the GPU and CPU. Previously I was experiences system shut down during heavy gaming.

The AS-5 only lowered the temperature a couple of degrees average (celsius) and it's been over 200 hours for the curing ......

Dell :: CompleteCare Warranty

May 30, 2010

I paid extra for 3 years of completecare when I bought my SXPS16. Recently, I found a number of scratches on the inside of the screen and called them up hoping for a replacement screen. They told me that I'd have to send it in. Do I really not have the onsite? I wouldn't have paid extra for the warranty had I known that they wouldn't send a tech if problems arose.

Dell :: Replacement With New Warranty

Feb 23, 2009

I have read a lot of posts which refer to faulty laptop replacement within the first 21 days of ownership. I am in the UK and recall that when I bought a Dell 20" monitor a few years back there was a limitation of 30 days for replacement with a new item.

Following that period, any replacement would be a re-furbished unit. During the 30 day period Dell sent me 3 replacement monitors before I got one with acceptable backlight bleed. They kept sending them without picking up the previous ones. Eventually they arranged a time to collect all the less than perfect monitors.

Can someone post a link to this policy of replacement with new for the first 21 or 30 days only? I have read the Customer Master Service Agreement, the Basic Hardware Support and the XPS NBD Warranty, but I can still find no reference to this policy.
