Dell :: Studio 15 Screen Options

Oct 21, 2008

I am stuck debating between the 15.4 WLED (1440*900) and the 15.4 non-LED (1920*1200). I am just not sure which I would prefer. If the WLED came in a 1920*1200 option I don't think I would be so concerned.

I really like the size, weight, and potential power savings of the WLED screens but I am used to working on larger monitors (22 and 25 inch) running at higher resolutions.

What does everyone think about these two choices? Will I be happy with the WLED at the smaller resolution or is it better to opt for the traditional screen with the higher resolution?

Just so everyone knows the laptop won't be my primary computer but will get a lot of use while working on graduate work away from home, writing website code, and general use. The only gaming activity it might see is some occasional WoW.

Dell :: Studio 15 Display Options

Feb 3, 2009

I'm not interested in a large resolution (I guess that 1280x800 is enough in a 15" screen) but it seems that the display with this resolution has a smaller view angle (especially vertical) than the 1400x900 display that maybe is not very good if you spend some time reading documents.

Dell :: Studio XPS 13 Color Options

Feb 12, 2009

this is my first time posting, and i have a question.

i've heard that later on there will be different color lids for the sxps 13 and 16.

i understand that this is both a studio and an xps, so it makes me wonder if i can have cool designs on the top. i don't know how thats gonna fly with the leather, because black is the only color that i can think of that would go with it.

so heres my question: do you think that dell will release custom, or at least different colors for the sxps? possibly midnight blue, the RED one, white, brown, green. anything. and if you do, when do you think they will release the new options?

Dell :: Best Screen Options?

Apr 6, 2009

I currently have a latitude x1, it served me well, but it's time to upgrade. My options are something within the 13"-15" screen range --no more external disk drives--such a pain in the backside. My main concern with which i need assistance is what

Dell screen would be best visually? My position requires extensive computer use so I need a screen that would be best on the eyes. What i noticed with my current model is that it puts a lot of strain on my eyes. Perhaps it is the brightness, or perhaps it is the actual quality of the screen, in any case I need help selecting an appropriate model for me.

I specifically want to go with dell because I receive a discount through them.

money is not an issue. I primarily use my notebook for MS Office applications, media editing, and web browsing -- occasionally play a game or two or watch a movie.

My current options are Vostro 1320
screen options- 13.3 ultrasharp WXGA LCD w/true life
or, -anti glare 13.3 WXGA.

XPS Studio 13
-Edge to edge 13.3 HD WXGA LCD
-Edge to edge 13.3 HD WXGA Slim WLED LCD

Latitude E4300
-13.3 Wide screen WXGA WLED panel for latitude ON

Dell :: E6500 Screen Options

May 12, 2009

I was wondering about the E6500 screen options. The options shown for LED screens are:

15.4in Wide Screen WXGA+ (1440x900) with LED backlit
15.4in Wide Screen WXGA (1280x800) LED

I need a LED screen because the laptop will be used to outside in direct sunlight alot. Brightness is very important. Resolution however is not. After talking to Dell on the phone they told me the LED backlit is much brighter then the standard LED option. However, I am wondering if this claim is true and that their not just trying to make me get a 100 euro option I don't need

Dell :: Studio 1555 Windows 7 Power Options

Jan 26, 2010

The feature in Windows 7 that allows you to tell the laptop to stop charging the battery when it's plugged-in and has reached 100% is very cool (and greatly helps prolong the battery's life).

Dell XPS 15 :: 2 Beeps And Bios Screen With Boot Options...

Oct 15, 2014

2 beeps I thought was a memory issue but the screen doesn't say anything about a memory problem. there are 3 options 1 boot to windows 2 boot options and the 3 I cant remember. option 2 and 3 may be out of order. I have looked in bios for memory test to turn it off but I don't see it. pressing F1 (first option) boots normally and system runs great as usual. 1 other thing, the battery light flashes red 4 times and then holds white for a second then cycles back to the flashing red. this all started at the same time. I tried to do a bios update but im already running the latest version so I get the window that says it wont be completed. the battery does seem to last a very long time as it usualy does, its a 9 cell battery.

Dell :: Screen Resolution Options For 15.6" 1080p Display

Apr 26, 2009

What are the 5 screen resolution options for the Dell Studio 1555 display with a 1900 x 1080 display?

"15.6 Inch Full High Definition(1080p) High Brightness LED Display with TrueLife and Camera/Facial Recognition"

Is 1280 x 800 one of the 5 resolution settings available under the Display Settings? I believe this is the lowest resolution setting where pictures are not distorted and out of proportion. Anything lower, like 1280 x 720, pictures become distorted....

Dell :: Blue Screen Of Death On Inspiron 6000 - What Are My Options Now ?

Sep 6, 2009

I have been getting the dreaded blue screen every couple of days for the last few months but since last week I keep getting it every 15 minutes ! My lapotp is 4 years old so I guess I cannot drag it anymore and have to think about a replacement hard drive or a new laptop.

So which one is the best option. I dont want to shell out the extra dough on the new one so was wondering if its worth buying a new HD and upgrading the RAM and keep working on the old one. I just use it for internet, word processing and Photoshop.

My specs are

Pentium M 2.13 GHz
80 GB Ultra ATA HD
256 MB RAM

HP/Compaq :: Screen Replacement Options

Jul 12, 2009

In general, for screen replacement on a HP business notebook, what is the best option?

1) Ship it back to HP

2) Let a tech replace it onsite

3) Ask for the whole display assembly and replace it myself

I've mostly had Dell business notebooks in the past, so I'm not sure how good HP business repair quality is. I've searched the forums here and found some stories of people not being very happy with their repair quality when it has been sent back to HP and when they've had technicians on site so I was considering just asking for the whole display assembly and then replacing it myself.

Dell :: Studio XPS 16 Screen Vs. Desktop Screen

Oct 13, 2009

Long ago (A year ago lol) I bought the Gateway FX gaming notebook. It was a great PC and could not beat the price with the hardware and performance it offered, however the screen was really bad.

At first glance it wasn’t, 1080p res and good brightness level, but when I plugged in my old external LCD monitor to dual screen, I was floored. My 4 year old desktop LCD screen was almost better in every single way.

The Gateway’s colors were dull, muddy, and dark, no matter how much I recalibrated the screen, I could not get it to look anywhere as good when compared to my Samsung screen on my desk.

Dell :: 1545. Options?

Mar 20, 2009

I bought a Inspiron 1545 in the outlet section, got it for $420 with a coupon I got off ebay.

I got the laptop and I absolutely love it! But there is a problem, the graphics card driver keeps crashing, this is an annoying problem and I think it might progressively get worse, so I'm worried.

My options so far that I can think of are:

Do a complete OS reinstall (can I use my dell cdkey to reinstall vista?)

Send it in to get fixed, if that's the case, what kind of fixing will they do?

Dell :: Hybrid SLI Options

Sep 13, 2009

I'm currently running 190.40 drivers for my GeForce 9500M on my SXPS13. Before updating to 190.40, clicking the little green NVIDIA tray icon that shows what mode you're running in allowed me to choose my mode manually through the use of two radio buttons.

Currently, I can only switch between "Boost Performance" and "Save Power" by switching power profiles in Windows. Is there some way I can get back those radio buttons without having to go back to the older driver?

Dell :: Studio XPS 16 Screen?

May 5, 2010

I'm looking at the new Studio XPS 16 (1645, I think... or maybe 1647?) for college. The main draw to the computer was the optional 16.0" RGBLED screen, which had phenomenal reviews. I've been playing with the configurator on the Dell site for the past few days, and while the description of the laptop says that the 16.0" RGBLED screen is available, you can't actually add it to the laptop in the configurator. I talked to a service rep today about it and he said that it was discontinued within the past month. Is this true?? Why would they discontinue a screen that had such high reviews? I don't know if I trust the salesman because he didn't answer any of my questions regarding differences in the screens and wasn't very helpful overall. I really wanted that screen for photo editing (since it could display an extremely high % of the color gamut) but now I'm not sure what to do... I don't know anything about the WLED screen that's offered (the 1080p version) or the B+RG LED screen offered on the Studio 17 (which was the other laptop that I was looking at). Does anyone know how those two monitors compare to the 16.0" RGBLED screen that used to be available on the XPS 16? What are the differences?

Dell :: Which Screen Would You Get For A Studio XPS

Nov 5, 2009

945P or 1080P?

I am concerned that 1080P on a 15/16 inch monitor will make text just too small ... but I see a lot of folks that seem to have ordered or have 1080P.

What are your thoughts? If you have 900P (for you Studio folks) or 945P, do you regret it not getting 1080P? If you have 1080P, is the text too small?

Dell :: Inspiron E1505 Battery Options?

My mother's Dell Inspiron e1505 needs a new battery. However, after she did research, she said that the OEM Dell batteries are really bad, and that 3rd-party options (such as Rayovac) are better.

I've always been told the opposite--that the OEM batteries are the best.

Dell :: XPS M1330 Faulty GPU Options? Cost?

Jan 28, 2010

I have the XPS m1330 with the nVidia 8400 GPU. Got it back in September of 2007 with just one year warranty.

I just started getting the rainbow colored vertical lines on the screen today, did research, and found out it is due to faulty GPU design.

Called up Dell, and they said even my one year extended warranty due to this common GPU error was over in September of 2008.

They also said I am out of luck, unless I want to go through their out of warranty repair department.

I didn't use the laptop on regular basis till just 8 months ago when my old one finally gave out of me after 6 years. So m1330 has been only used for 8 months, and now I am stuck with bunch of verticals lines, and no hope.
