Dell :: I Can't Buy M1710 Parts From SPARE PARTS W/o An M1710 SVC TAG #

Feb 21, 2008

I was going to be assembling an m1710 this weekend....

I called Dell Spare Parts a few days ago, and placed an order for the following;

HG345 Refurb bottom plastics, m1710
FF084 Refurb palmrest assy, m1710
J8841 Refurb speakers, LED, m1710
CF426 Refurb hinge cover, m1710

I've been watching the order on Dell's site all week, as it was scheduled to ship (on or before today) (2/21/08), and I opted for Next Day shipping.

When I placed the order, the woman I spoke with asked for my Service Tag number. I, um... don't HAVE one... I didn't say this, I simply said I don't have that information at the moment. She asked how I got the part numbers, and I told her from their own Spare Parts page.

Well....the order got cancelled today. Saw it online while at work, just before I left for the day. Another order number with the identical items was created, with a scheduled ship date of 3/3/08. WHAT?

The woman just called....she states they cannot process my order without a service tag number. YOU HAVE GOT TO BE KIDDING ME!

I told her I don't have a tag number....she asked if I was building one. "Yes." To which I hear...

"Oh....well, I don't think our supplier will allow that without a service tag number, because we reserve those parts for people who bought m1710's."

I said "That's amazing...because I know a number of people who have done the same thing I'm trying to do, and had no problems getting these parts."

"Well, that's because they have m1710's"

*mad enought to scream at this point* "Um, no...where do you think I got the idea from?? I'm certainly not the first person to have this idea."

how I can get them to sell me some refurbished plastics? What's the secret password?

Dell :: Onsite Repair

Sep 22, 2009

I was told that I would recieve a call to schedule my repair within 24 hours and it's been a week already. Is this normal? Is it true that they send the parts to you directly?

For some reason my order status on dell started out as "shipped." The order never went through a processing stage...

Dell :: Repair Depot

Dec 14, 2008

I sent my Inspiron 1525 in to get the screen replaced because it was loose, the bottom replaced because screws would fall out, and something done about the over heating. Too many problems for only having the lappy for almost exactly 9 months.

I received a box about a month ago from Dell to send in my worn out laptop and kept pushing it off and pushing it off needing my laptop for various things. A few days ago though I got a new box and sent my laptop off to the Repair Depot.

The only problem is that the person who took my information for the box didn't give me a tracking number. So I have to wait two days! ((by which time the laptop could probably be back in my possession)) for Dell people to contact their repair depot and find out about the where abouts of my laptop.

I'm not entirely worried about the entire thing because I did remove my hard drive and I would be more than happy to just build another one and swap out hard drives.

Dell :: BIOS Repair Weirdness

Oct 13, 2009

The keyboard stopped working on my E6500, so I sent it back to Dell, who promptly replaced the keyboard and sent it back to me.

Everything is working fine, but one strange thing has happened--the BIOS on it has gone from A14 (what I'd upgraded it to) down to A12 (what it originally came with).

Dell :: Inspiron 8500 Repair

Feb 9, 2010

With all software issues decided as not the problem, I am trying to decide what piece of hardware needs replacing or is even fixable.

The Dell when first turned on looks like a tetris screen, lots of vertical lines and some horizontal, lots of colors. Next boot up will be more lines not as distinct and a white background. This second screen will stay with me through several more power offs, power on.

sometimes I will end up with the BSOD stop code which supposedly is a memory problem but the memory checks okay. Finally when the laptop is really warmed up, it boots normally and will work for the entire day. I removed the bezel and keyboard but have no idea of what is "normal"

If a cable had been evidently loose or cracked, that would have helped but all I see is a sys board which appears to have a slight film on it (normal?) The display cable is wrapped with electrical tape where it goes into the display unit. Is this normal? If anyone has had their 8500 apart and took photos, I'd appreciate access to them.

Dell :: On Site Repair Time

Oct 1, 2008

Well my XPS M1330 finally succumbed to the nvidia gpu flaw. I called Dell on Sunday afternoon (it's now Weds AM) and within 20 minutes with tech support had arranged for on site repair.

Well Monday came and went, no call from the local tech to schedule my repair. Contacted Dell chat support yesterday (Tues) morning and within 10 minutes after checking on my status the rep said I should receive a call by end of business day. The rep then connected me to a supervisor for a quick survey...supervisor asked me some small talk questions and then gave me a # to call direct regarding my in home repair (800-654-1853). So now this morning, no call so I gave the # a is some company named "Bangtech"? Gave them my Dell Dispatch # and the lady there told me they haven't received the replacement part yet (new mobo). I explained today is now the 3rd day, she put me on hold, then came back and said they anticipate delivery today and I would receive a call by 5pm today to schedule.

My question is is this normal timing? My Dell dispatch says "NBD". I figured it would be Tues for the repair since I called Sunday afternoon and nothing would probably get shipped/updated until Monday. At this point it's going to be Thursday at the earliest.

Dell :: Inspiron 1520 Repair

Jun 17, 2009

My laptop took a nasty fall when it was open. It still works fine, but one of the hinges is now broken... not only the plastic part, but the metal hinge is cracked in half too. I am worried if I keep opening and closing it, it may eventually do damage to my LCD screen.

I'm sure Dell will charge me a ridiculous amount of money to fix it, so I was going to have a computer savvy friend do it for me. Does anyone know what the part(s) I need is called and where I can find it. Also any directions to fix it would help so I can tell my friend exactly what to do

Dell :: E6500 Paint Repair, Can It Be Done?

Mar 24, 2009

So after only 3 months, the paint has chipped off one corner of my e6500, leaving a freckle-sized spot of bare silver metal exposed. I'm not sure how it happened, since I didn't bang or scuff that corner, but it happened... anyhow, I'd like to fix it, if possible.

I tried coloring the spot in with a black Sharpie, but the ink just kept rubbing off.

I'm thinking perhaps black touch-up paint for a car might do the trick, but I've never used touch-up paint on anything before so I don't know A.

Dell :: Is The 21-day Repair Waiting Period Official?

Jan 2, 2010

I like numerous others had my video card recently fail, and I contacted Dell on 28 December. They told me that the card was on backorder and I would have to wait until the first week of February for a replacement.

They then asked if I wanted a 8700 temporarily installed until the 8800's were back in stock. I accepted that offer because I need my computer to be able to work.

After that call, I started reading this forum and saw that this was a widespread problem and dell was replacing systems with the AW M17. I also read that Dell had a clause in their warranty that said after 21 days they would have to offer me a replacement system .....

Jul 1, 2009

I got the 1721 for x-mas. Its worked pretty well but it has a hell of a time multi-tasking then giving the blue screen of death and restarting on its own. Well yesterday I turned it on and it said that their were errors and it could not boot properly and would i like to do system restore.

Sep 30, 2012

I'm using Dell Studio 1555. I've use it around 3 years. Last week my laptop start making up problem.

Firstly it will suddenly restart while i'm using it. Sometimes it will come up blank screen and need me to restart back.

After that during start up my dell logo will take times to pop up. And will ask me to repair my window.

I've read some post here said that it maybe because of the CMOS battery and I've already change it and dell logo is pop up a little bist faster than before.

But right now my laptop could not be start up. When I power up, the LED button at the On/off button is ok.

The fan also running. When I plug in my Iphone it will be charge but there is nothing on the screen.

I've also put on external monitor but also didn't show anything.

And also there is no sound @ beep during my start up.

Dell Inspiron 1525 :: Not Starting Up - Repair Errors

Mar 14, 2013

This morning when I started my computer, I got a Windows error message giving me two options: to launch Startup Repair to try to repair any errors or to start up normally. I chose error repair and it says it is repairing disk errors and might take an hour to complete.  The first time, it said it had fixed errors and I needed to hit "Finish" to restart, which I did, but I ended up with a black screen.

The next time, I chose to start normally, and ended up with a black screen again.

The third time, I did the disk repair again, and go the message that Windows cannot repair my computer automatically, and to hit "finish" to exit and shut down. 

I''m still ending up with the black screen. I tried some trouble shooting tips posted in others' forums, but none of the following have worked:

-Draining residual battery power

-Running on-board diagnostics (all areas Passed)

-Rebooting in Safe Mode (I ended up with the black screen again)

My laptop model is DELL XPS 11. when i press the power on button, the Dell logo came out and it loads "preparing automatic repair...", then the whole screen turned black, there is nothing on the screen but I can only see the mouse cursor.

What did i do?I rebooted the laptop and immediately pressed F12 to go into diagnotics. After scanning, there was an error code 2000-0142 and the error message was Hard drive 0 - short self test unsuccessful. I even tried to use recovery media to factory reset my laptop, but it failed.I did not open up my laptop to check for any cable connection problems, because I dont know if it will void my warranty. My laptop is still under warranty.

Dell XPS 17 :: Stuck In Startup Repair Loop After Windows Critical Update

Mar 18, 2012

I have a Dell XPS 17 laptop that seems to be stuck in the Startup Repair Loop, and I have tried everything to get out of the startup repair mode, but nothing seems to be working. I have tried F8, Safe Mode, System Restore (to two different dates), and the command prompt, but everything happened to no avail. I even did the Diagnostics test (long version), and that came up with nothing. I purchased the laptop back in October of 2010, and it has Windows 7. The laptop went into this Startup repair loop about a day after it did a Windows "Critical" update. One of the programs that the update tried to install onto my computer was Google Chrome (which it, according to the laptop, failed to install properly). It makes me wonder if the update uninstalled a driver, or turned a driver bad.

Two errors that I repeatedly get are "Corruptfile" and "Autofailover". I truly hope that this is something that can be fixed, and I hope that I will not have to restore my laptop back to it's factory settings.

Dell XPS M1330 :: Factory Restore - Cannot Find System Repair Menu

Feb 9, 2013

I have Dell XPS m1330, and I'm having problem to perform factory restore. At the moment I have windows server 2008 installed for testing purpose. When I tried to perform factory restore by running D:ToolsPCRestore.exe on the recovery partition, it fails when reformatting the harddrive (see screenshot below)

I then tried the other method by rebooting, and pressing F8 when dell logo appears. However I couldn't find a "System repair" menu in there.

Is there any other method I can try to perform factory restore?

Dell Studio 1537 :: HardDisk Not Detected In Windows Repair Mode?

Jan 23, 2013

my Windows is not able to boot and I have to repair it with a Windows Vista DVD taken from another Dell (Desktop) PC. The installation is not able to detect a drive and so I am not able to select a Windows installation to repair. I need the drivers for the Harddisk (or controller) to add it to the repair process. The problem is that on the Driver support page only firmware for the hard drive is available but no .inf file that I need for the repait.

where I can find the .inf file or if it is possible to extract the file from the destroyed windows installation (via live-linux).

Dell Latitude E6410 :: Windows 7 Will Not Load After Update - Go To Startup Repair

Nov 21, 2014

I purchased a refurbished Dell e6410 about a year ago.   The Laptop was working find with no issues.   But in mid August, I did a windows 7 update...   After the update, windows restarted...   But instead of booting up to windows...  It went to "startup repair".   It ran this several times until is said it could not repair the startup.

I ended up having to do a recovery and reload windows and re-image my HD...   After doing that, I tried windows update again.   Same issue.   after windows update...   It would just got to startup repair.

Again, I had to restore my OS and re-image my drive.   I tested and checked the HD and go no errors.  Ran disk check and disk check /r...   But if I tried to run a windows update it would just go into startup repair and I would eventually have to just reload my os and re-image the drive.

I spoke to an agent from Dell about it...   He suggested I wait a month before trying to do the windows update.   Perhaps they have a bug.     

So I waited two months and tried an update again, last night.   This time, I would get the dell logo, with f12 option, that would go away and then "windows is loading necessary files", but then the screen would go black and dell screen came up gain, then "windows is loading necessary files".   I let it do this for almost an hour.   Windows never started...   I had no option to get into safe mode or any other boot modes. I have a regular desk top pc that I have done windows update and it has no issues.   

I am running windows 7 64bit.

Acer :: Broken LCD Send To For Repair Or DIY

Sep 29, 2009

I have a 4 month old Acer Aspire 6920G laptop with a cracked LCD. It happened just by catching the corner of it (the plastic surround, not the lcd) with the back of my hand (it was just a tap for god's sake!) as I went to plug in a memory stick. Brilliant. I guess the screen was weakened for some reason.

Anyway, I know the screen isn't covered by the warranty so I was wondering how much Acer charge to replace the screen? I've looked around and can get a new replacement screen for about 95 and fit it myself but I assume that will void the rest of my warranty? I'm happy to go the DIY route if a screen is far more expensive from Acer.
