Dell :: Screws For M90/M1710

Mar 16, 2009

Since I've been taking apart my M90 often. I notice that my screwdriver is not as flat as it should be and if I'm not careful. I will be stripping the screws soon. How much does a replacement set of screws cost. And is there a perfect screwdriver for the screws?

Dell :: Vostro 1400 Chassis Screws

Jan 12, 2010

I was using my laptop as I normally would a few weeks back when I noticed that the left hand-side was sticking out a tad bit more than usual. I ignored it and now it's starting to become quite drastic.

There's a huge gap that keeps the top cover sealed with the rest of the laptop chassis. I look underneath the laptop and notice that somehow, 2 screws had disappeared!

Dell :: Lost Some Screws When Opening My M1330

Sep 23, 2008

I lost the screws that hold the door of the memory compartment. Do you guys know where I can buy them? I'm a perfectionist. I prefer the same kind/colour of screws that Dell uses. Can I buy them from any hardware stores?

Dell :: XPS M1530 Replacement Screws, Warranty Etc

Oct 18, 2009

If the case is (insignificantly) dented, do they refuse warranty?

Does opening the laptop and changing thermal paste void the warranty? Can they see if I have opened the case or not?

If so, where can I get _genuine_ screws for my XPS M1530 laptop? I'm thinking about the screws which holds down the CPU/GPU/Motherboard plate (2 different types), and the ones that holds down the CPU cooler. Ebay is OK, but it must have international shipping.

Dell :: Technician Stripped One Of The Screws By Using A Power Drill

Jan 6, 2010

Today I had my laptop's dvd drive replaced while i was gone to work.

I had someone watching the Dell technician while he was working on my laptop.

After I came home, my friend notified me that the technician used a power screwdriver to remove the screws from my laptop. After I inspected the laptop, I noticed one of the screws is close to getting completely stripped out!

Has anyone ever experienced this before? I don't know what to say, considering they are not even suppose to use a power drill to remove the screws at first place.

Apple :: Scratch The Bottom When Removing Screws

May 28, 2010

I slipped up a few times and caused hairline scratches on the underside plate of my 13" MBP when I installed my Momentus XT (which I am now returning and getting X25-M). My heart dropped when I heard these screeching noises, but it doesn't look too bad and hopefully eliminates the OCD I tend to have with electronics.

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 :: New To XPS M1710

Nov 28, 2007

I just acquired my 1st XPS notebook this week (bought it used) and so far, I'm loving it. Not a huge fan of Dell desktops but I must admit, they have done something amazing with their XPS/gaming systems. And their warranty services aren't too shabby.

My current system is as follows:
Intel C2D T7200 @ 2.0GHz 4MB L2/667MHz
Go 7900GS
4GB DDR2 RAM
200GB 7200RPM HDD
Gigabyte wireless adapter (not sure which model but it supports 108Mbps)

Got it for a good price so I wanted to know the following...

Is it worth it for me to upgrade the CPU to possibly the T7600/T7600G? Is it worth it for me to upgrade the GPU to the Go 7950GTX?

I was looking into OC-ing my CPU and GPU but I haven't found any information on OC-ing the CPU. As for the GPU, the sticky here seems to be pretty easy to follow. I will try that tonight and see what I can push out of my system. I've never been huge into the OC-ing scene

Dell :: Fix Mt GC On My M1710 ?

Mar 22, 2010

I rebooted and noticed that there are now loads of lines all over my screen and when it loads to the next screen I see some green boxes.

I have let my Laptop cool down for 24 hours and its still doing it. I emailed a guy online who said he can fix for 100 so I am guessing he will fix the actual GC rather than replace.?

Dell :: 4gb Ram For M1710

Oct 24, 2007

some ram to get for my M1710 or M9750 to move up to 4 gigs. I'm thinking of getting Geil, but reading the reviews I'm thinking otherwise.

i understand on XP I'll only get 3.25 but I figuire I'll just buy the bundle and max out rather then trying to find and buy another 2 gig stick a year from now.

Dell :: GPU Drivers For My XPS M1710?

Mar 25, 2009

I'm using the 175.32 drivers for the 7900GTX on my Dell XPS M1710, but was told by a friend that there are better ones out there. On the nvidia website it only gives me Quadra NVS drivers, which I'm told would give worse performance than my current drivers. I use my laptop for gaming, not rendering.
Any other driver suggestions?

Dell :: 7950GTX / M1710

Aug 29, 2007

I'm trying to figure out what is going on with my 7950GTX. Any drivers I use in XP have problems. ALL the drivers I have used (93.77, 94.22, 158.18, 158.45, 163.44) have had my LCD go to Black then come back to the normal image, almost as if the LCD lost power and was turned back on.

However, When I put Vista on to see if that would fix the problem, I was plagued with nvlddmkm.sys has stopped responding and has recovered errors, with the same LCD problem as in XP.

Also, while I'm in XP, I MUST disable NvMcTray form starting up or I will blue screen after I login and see the nVidia icon in my system tray.

Dell :: E1705 Vs. M1710

Feb 17, 2008

So I bought an Inspiron 9400 bout two years ago, its a piece of shi*t ... i've had i dunno about 6 or 7 service calls now .... ANYWAYS

When I went to purchase a laptop I was looking at both the XPS and the laptop I decided on (E1705), and the only thing I noticed that was different was that the XPS was substantially more expensive, and had a different look ...

Not to insult anyone's taste or anything, but the look of the XPS is tacky as hell lol ... I mean, its inundated with the word XPS everywhere (even on the touchpad ... ?), i've never seen one in person ... maybe someone can explain to me haha

Anyways, the purpose of this post isn't about the aesthetic differences between the two series of laptops lol. A friend of mine who is in the market to purchase a laptop has asked me what the differences were ... and I couldnt answer him (hence why i'm posting)

What i'm asking then is, other then its shell, assuming the CPU, GPU, RAM, display are identical what is it that makes the XPS better and at a much higher price? Is the motherboard better, or are XPSes less prone to random breaking? If anyone can differentiate the two for me i'd appreciate it, so I can help my friend out before he drops $2.5k on a laptop

Dell :: Cooling Pad- M1710

Jul 7, 2007

I want to buy a cooling pad for an XPS M1710 I just ordered but need some advice first. Some cooling pads out there blow air up to the bottom of the laptop, and others draw air from the bottom of the laptop and exhaust the hot air to the back or sides. Can somebody tell me whether the bottom of the M1710 draws cool air in, or blows hot air out? If the M1710 draws air in, then I will get a cooling pad that blows cool air to the bottom. If the bottom of the M1710 blows out hot air, then I will get a cooling pad that draws the hot air out

Dell :: XPS M1710 Graphics

Mar 27, 2009

I know that there are lots threads about various GPU related problems, but somehow I didn't find any information which i would be very interested in. So:

PROBLEM #1: I have dell m1710 (GPU: GeForce Go 7950 GTX; the last time i've cleansed dust lats time about four months ago) for 18 months. Its waranty is expired.

Some time ago, while playing a game which does not require lots of graphics power, the screen covered with color lines and squares (screenshots included). As I closed the program and looked at GPU temperature it was around 66. I've restarted my laptop and at first it didn't boot at all and all startup information and BIOS looked like written in some kind of hieroglyphs.

Now my laptop only boots on safe mode or normal mode but only if resolution is no more than 1280x800. But i think it won't last long until it won't work at all .....

Dell :: XPS M1710 Won't Load

Nov 11, 2009

I have an m1710 laptop. A few days ago when I wanted power it up it would start loading, but nothing would show on the monitor and the LED indicators near the media button would light up.

The first one from the left would stay on and next two would flash together while the last two are off. I tried hoilding down FN key when loading so I can load dell diagnostics but it won't do that. Tried to hookup an external monitor but that didn't help.

Tried powering up with the d key pressed in to run a graphics check but didn't work. Since the comnputer is no longer under waranty I took it apart and took out the Nvidia card and cleared the dust around it.

Right after that the computer loaded fine but today it got stuch while in windows and when I tried loading it I got the same err msgs with the LED indicators. I talked with Dell locally and they told me it's 99% the Nvidia card
