Dell :: Inspiron 15 Reviews By Daily Users?

Oct 18, 2009

I am finding the Inspiron 15 at reasonable pricing (from 429.99 to 489.99) so am thinking of buying an early Christmas present.

I need information on its reliability. Will I need to purchase an extended warranty or should the owner be able to operate trouble free for at least three years?

Dell Inspiron 5720 :: Windows 8 - Getting Blue Screen Daily?

Feb 3, 2013

Blue screen since I bought this laptop with windows 8 OS (3 months):

I already ran:

- Intel® Driver Update Utility

-Repair-install the  operating system (Original Dell Image) for 2times

- All windows updates done

         - Update the DELL BIOS version

        - Ran DELL PC Check Up – Hardware Diagnostics

-  Ran anti-virus, anti-malware, anti-spyware, etc.

- Ran HW monitor to check temperatures, all normal

- Ran Advanced SystemCare 6 for windows optimization and registry fix.

… and the the blue screens didn’t stop!!!. Usually I get one for day.

Normally I get this blue screens even when laptop is notbeing run any program. By the details look that is related with an app. But theolder critical events sometimes don’t give so many details.

This laptop a bad historical. In less than 3 months alreadyhad two times the hard-disk replaced.

Dell :: Inspiron 9300 Users Running Win 7? Problems!

Jan 10, 2009

I totally wiped out my drive and started anew on my 9300. Most of my hardware drivers were accounted for. But, I'm missing sound, wireless, Fn+X keyboard shortcuts, and (most importantly) my ATI X300, which may as well not exist because Windows sure isn't recognizing it.

I haven't been able to get online with it yet, so I'm not sure how many of these problems I can clear up by searching with 7's troubleshooting tools.

Of course, ATI doesn't have official Vista drivers for the X300. Has anyone worked around Dell's OEM drivers, or have those been fine for you?

I really wanted to make it a nice cable/OTA HD Media Center, but I especially need my video card up and running for that.

Dell :: Inspiron 1520 Users 1TB Laptop Internal Drive ?

Apr 18, 2010

my 320gb drive that shipped from Dell 2 years ago is dieing out. It will need to be replaced soon. I am curious if any Inspiron 1520 users have upgraded to one of these new 1TB capacity laptop drives. Previously 500gb was the max capacity but now 750gb and 1Tb versions are available. From what I understand the drives must be 2.5 inch to fit in an Inspiron 1520.

Has anyone done this yet ? Which model drive have you installed ? Did you have any issues 'fitting' the drive in ? How is it working out ?

Dell Latitude D530 :: Daily Driver Won't Power Up?

Apr 29, 2013

Yesterday the system went down unexpectedly and without proper steps. I pressed the power button and it resumed nicely after running chkdsk.

Today it again went down unexpectedly and now will not power up. The green LED on the power cord blinks when plugged in to the laptop (but is steady 

if not plugged in to laptop).  The laptop is completely dark & quiet.

My battery has been fine but this system is acting the same whether my battery is "inserted" or "removed."

How can I further troubleshoot this without risking damage to my HDD? I have used two different power cords so far (they both do the blinking)

Dec 27, 2009

I check my battery count almost every day, what I have noticed is that the full charge capacity decreases by around 5 every day. Three days ago it was at 5182, and now it's at 5169. I run my laptop on external power most of the time. Is such steady decrease normal?

Any reviews, user pictures, experiences with the E4200 out there by now? Still waiting for feedback before I pull the trigger on one..

Any real world weight figures? 2.2lbs with standard prismatic battery sounds amazing, but I wonder if this is truth. That's the weight of the Asus EEE 8.9" 900 series NETBOOK!

Dell :: Exclusive: APC Reviews The XPS Studio 13

If youre looking for a gaming machine you may need to look at a larger model with a beefier graphics card.

all in all, APC seems to think it's a competent 13" notebook in general. however being an XPS i think people expect more from it. without a good GPU, beyond a slight difference in size and superficial cosmetic differences, what's the point if thats achievable in something slightly larger and cheaper within the Dell family or even better in the same size, out of it? never mind the initial bugs that seem to be cropping out from it.

eta: it's also funny that APC picked up on the deceptive naming of the 9500M GE. whether it's Dell's, nVidia's or a collusion of the two, most likely the latter, it was a cheap transparent gimmick. the 9500M GE in an XPS 13 is no where near the level of an actual 9500M GS card.

Dell :: Beware! Display Quality On SXPS16 Not On Par With Reviews

Feb 11, 2009

However measurements conducted using a professional grade meter severe issues:Yes the colors do pop but green is widly oversaturatedMost colors have incorrect hueYes maximum luminance is very high but black levels are very poor, so the contrast remains below 580:1Color temperature is too high (greyscale suffers from a greenish tint)

Those issues cannot be solved:Calibrating the greyscale to a different color temperature (65K standard) reduces the contrast significantly. Adding some red will fix color temperature but also increase black luminance and hence reduce the contrast.The color saturation and color hue controls do not alter the green color in any significant way.

While the display may be ok for gamers who like nuclearly inaccurate colors, the display is very poor for what it is supposed to do: displaying Bluray films and other video content (after all this is a 16/9 HD media laptop)The poor black levels mean the picture looks flat and 2 dimensionalThe color inaccuracies lead to radiating grass and foliage as well as incorrect skin tones.

I am including the details of my measurements below, as well as examples of ow the color settings of the ATI Catalyst Control panel affect the readings.

Black Level: 0,48cd/m
White Point (maximal luminance): 270cd/m
Contrast: 560:1

Unfortunately, this is merely average, as most competing non LED panels have contrasts of 600:1 or higher. Also any good screen should have black levels below 0,3cd/m .....

Dell :: Studio XPS 16 Users

Aug 29, 2009

im looking to get one of the studio xps but im currently debating wether to go for the 13 or 16. portability is fairly essential but the prospect of having the 1080p screen really appeals to me.
how do you find the 16 around the house and if you use it, at work or school, and moving it around, too and from these places.
i no its a desktop replacement and i no people will say look at the size and weight etc but i want feedback on real life use of it and how people find it.

i will be using it mostly at home in my lap, sitting on the sofa etc and at university in the library or desk in class so i was hoping to get the 13 but i really want that sexy 16inch screen so please provide feedback on your experience.
