Which Laptop Is Better Hp Or Dell ?


Which laptop is better dell or hp?

Answer:- they both suck- hp consistently ranks last in customer satisfaction and laptop reliability, and dell just got in big trouble over knowingly selling faulty computers. Between the two, i'd say dell is better- they're at least a bit more reliable and i can't stand hps trackpads. Hp has basically turned to selling cheap apple knockoffs. If you can afford it, you're better off getting a mac and installing windows on it. Or get an asus or a toshiba.

Dell Studio Laptop - The Battery Is Not Recognized By Dell

My dell studio laptop says "the battery is not recognized by dell" and will not charge. ? Can you help me and tell me if there is something wrong with this brand of laptop or is it just a problem with my laptop. If so is there any way to fix it? Also: the charger i am using currently is not the one that came with the laptop, it is a universal charger. But the original charger does not work either.

No Power To Dell Laptop

My daughter has a dell inspiron 2600 laptop. She used it and everything was fine, but she let it set for a couple of weeks and when she went to use it again, there was no power. The power cord is plugged in, but no lights and nothing happens when you push the power button. I put a different battery and power cord on, that i know is good and still nothing happens. It is just as if the battery is dead and it is not hooked up to ac at all. What could have caused this problem, and what can be done about it?

Dell Laptop Crashing

Anyways, here's the problem. My sister has a laptop that she uses for college, she's not exactly tech savvy, so she waited until she got home to tell me that she has a problem. I'm not sure how or when it started, only that it didn't do this when she first bought it. What happens is at various random times when not plugged in, the comp shuts down. No blue screen, nothing like that. When you reboot there's no *did not shut down properly*, it just loads up like normal. Now, this doesn't necessarily happen after long use, it doesn't even have to be "hot" for this to happen. Now, none of this happens when it is plugged in, but similarly, sometimes when it is plugged in, and you unplug it, it will shutdown and be unable to turn back on until you plug it back in. Any clue? Is this just a faulty battery?

New Dell Laptop Problems

So i bought a dell inspiron 1545 on black friday last year and it is having some problems already. It isn't even a year old :/ but it has a one year warranty so that's good?

The problems are:

- Sometimes, i can hear the bottom 'crackling'
- The dvd drive doesn't work very well
- It restarts itself
- Occasionally, it will say (a file name) corrupted when i start it up
- The flash slows things down a lot
- It will freeze
- The mouse pad's left side button is bent down?
- This one is hard to explain but it acts like i am pressing the 'ctrl' button when i am not. For example, when you press crtl+t it opens a new tab, so sometimes when i am typing a letter 't', it will open a new tab or when i am typing an 's' it opens the save thing and etc. I am probably going to call the dell support thing tomorrow morning. Do they give you money back, a new laptop, or something else if it is in fact not working properly? And also, when do you think is wrong with it?

Dell, Toshiba, Or Hp Laptop?

I'm in the market for a laptop (my first) to last me at least 5 years with no problems or need for repair. I'm interested in purchasing either a dell, toshiba, or an hp (originally i wanted a macbook, but i've heard that that's not the best choice for a biology major-the compatible software is not as good?), But i don't know which one is best. I'm willing to pay up to $1200 as long as it has the following specifications:

-Built-in webcam
-Long-lasting battery (at least 5 hours)
-Best processor (fast with good performance)
-4gb memory
-At least 16" screen
-It must be quiet
-Must last me at least 5 years
-Dvd/cd drive (no blu-ray necessary)

Also, i'm not a big gamer (i like sims and nancy drew games, but other than that i really am not big into computer games). Please let me know if this request is even possible or if i need to lower my expectations! But please help me figure out which laptop to purchase!

Dell Laptop Wont Turn On

I have an old dell inspiron 7000 that just stopped turning on a while back. When i plug the adapter into the wall (not connected to the computer) the green light comes on and everything seems fine. However, as soon as i plug it into the computer the green light goes out and begins to blink every few seconds. Of course the computer wont charge or turn on or anything. I called dell and they just said it was a motherboard problem which seems to be too programed of an answer. I was kinda hoping that its just the adapter and i can just go get another one. Anyone have any thoughts on this? Thanks for any help on this one.

Dell Laptop Hdd Upgrade

Ok, so my dell laptop came with a 7200rpm 120gb hdd which is fine and dandy. But it's been getting a little cluttered lately (at one point i had 16mb free, now i'm out to 23gb). So i'm looking into expanding. I see that newegg has a 320gb seagate 5400rpm drive for only $100 and it's quite enticing. So here's my question. If i upgrade, i'll probably dual boot vista/ubuntu, and possibly triple boot throwing in os x leopard for funsies. My question is, for convenience sake, instead of having to mess with weird cloning methods (weird because i'd need an external enclosure for the new drive to clone) could i instead just install vista fresh on the new hdd and then use the full system restore i've created in vista to then restore it back as if nothing changed?

After that's set, i'd go on with the multi-boot fun.

How To Unlock A Dell Inspiron Laptop ?

How can i unlock a dell inspiron laptop? I tried f8 and safe mode but i brought me back to putting a password?

Answer:-

Which system do you use?

On windows xp, try this:

Boot computer and press ctrl+alt+delete twice when you see windows welcome screen / login screen. It'll show classic login box. Now type "administrator" (without quotes) in username field and leave password field blank, press enter and you should be able to login windows. Now you can reset your account password from "control panel -> user accounts". If that doesn't or you use windows 7 or vista, try this:

1. Enter a computer that can link to internet. Download windows password recovery tool 3. 0 and install the software on that computer. 2. Run the software and create windows password reset disk by follow the instructions. 3. Eject the created cd/dvd and insert it into the locked computer. 4. Reboot the locked computer (it's necessary for you to change your locked computer's bios setting to make it boot from cd drive) and then follow the instructions to reset your password. 5. Now login windows and set a new password.

How Long Dell Take To Deliver Laptop ?

I've found lots of other questions/answers where people said it could take a week for dell to deliver a laptop, and some where it said 2-3 weeks. I'm wondering if anybody recently - this month preferably - ordered a dell laptop or if you know their current production times. I ordered a customized studio xps 16 laptop on august 12th, and the estimated delivery date is august 25th with next day shipping. The problem is my college orientation starts august 26th, and i'd like to have the laptop before i leave for college. Anybody have an idea if august 25th is accurate or if it will come sooner or later?

Dell Laptop For Highschool Student

I'm a high-school student and i'm planning on purchasing a dell laptop before september. I have my sights on the studio 15 and studio xps 16 but i don't know which one would be better. I have read many reviews that suggest the xps 16, however i don't know if it would be worth the extra $$ compared to the studio 15. I am most likely going to be using this laptop for a while (maybe more than 3 years). I am not a *** gamer, i go on facebook alot and watch movies/pictures (like most teenage girls), will probably install photoshop and of course homework. I just don't know which one of those to get.could anyone please suggest/provide more info on this?

Dell Laptop Vista Problem

This has happened to me before but when i took it to my colleges' help desk they managed to fix it. The issue is. Since vista is. "Amazing" it seems that every time i go to log off my computer i get to be lucky enough to install an update before shutting down. You have the option to have the computer install and then shut down, so of course i choose that option. Two days ago i (like normal) chose that option and it did its little song and dance like normal and shut down. No biggie. So yesterday when i booted up it prompted me to the "launch widows repair" or "start windows normally" screen. I launched windows repair, after about 10 minutes of checking all the drives it told me to restart which i did and once again was prompted to the same page. It wasn't just once either, its in a loop. If i choose start windows normally, it restarts and prompts me to the same error page. Im pretty good with computers so you don't have to baby step me, but if someone could help me troubleshoot this i would be much appreciated. I read that i might be able to uninstal the update in safe-mode but if anyone has a definite answer id much appreciate it.

Connect Dell Studio 15 Laptop To Lcd Tv

How do i connect my dell studio 15 labtop to my lcd tv? I cannot seem to get my brand new dell studio 15 laptop with a radeon mobil 4570, to connect to my broksonic 32� ccvg-3276 lcd tv properly. I have searched through to online support items without any success. Another problem i seem to be having is that the online support chat page does not want to load on my laptop. All other websites work fine, but after i fill out my info on the page before the chat i click start session, then the page comes up and after a few minutes tells me i have connection problems. Then i click diagnose connection problems and windows tells me that there is no problem. This problem is secondary to me getting the connection from the laptop to the tv though. I know that the hdmi cable is good, because it is the same cable that we use from the cable box to the tv. I am also using the same input from the laptop to the tv as we do with the cable box. So, i know i have the tv on the correct input. I also know that the input on the tv works fine as well, because when connected to the cable box the picture comes up fine. I know that i have the latest drivers for the radeon mobil 4570. I downloaded them directly from the ati website just to be sure. I think that it was supposed to have been preloaded on the laptop, but when the trouble started i downloaded and installed them.

Printer For Dell Inspiron 1501 Laptop

Will any printer work with my dell inspiron 1501 laptop? I'm looking for a decent but cheap printer for my laptop. I've been looking around online and i'm getting the impression that just about any printer will work. Anyone have an idea of what kind definitely will or won't work?

Btw photo printing would be nice with the printer, but it won't break my heart if i choose a cheaper printer without photo capabilities.
