Dell XPS 1710 - front right speaker out

Hi folks

I got my laptop back from out-of-warranty repair a couple of months ago (loooong story) and a few days later, the sound went out in my front right speaker. A friend of mine said it might be something as simple as the techs forgetting to lock down the audio cables properly.

I know my way around PCs and would be comfortable opening it up and checking the cable(s) myself, except I'm not quite sure how to get to the sound card.

Does anyone have a manual/schematic for the XPS 1710, or could someone perhaps walk me step-by-step through the process of removing the plastic "brushed aluminum" cover?

Thanks!

Why my dell inspiron 6400 battery not charging while plug in ,i have bought this one month ago


Every new Dell computer comes with a ONE-YEAR warranty.
Contact Dell, via telephone, and they will trouble-shoot your problem,
and will repair/replace any parts, to fix your problem.

No charge, during the first 12 months of ownership.

Check the device manager in the windows control panel and make sure your audio device is listed and has no conflicts present. If all is good there, I suggest downlading the latest driver, then uninstall/remove your audio device from the device manager, then install the new driver and let the computer rediscover the harware. Sometimes it just helps when the computer thinks it's a new device.

If you purchased it new, you should be able to get the keyboard replaced under warranty. Dell's come with a minimum 1-year warranty. Give them a call and tell them the issue with the spacebar.

Lines on the screed


The lines are causes by a defective NVidia Chipset. The replacement boards that Dell is using for warranty repairs should be problem free, so if under warranty, contact Dell technical support.

If out of warranty but less than 12 months after warranty expired, Dell should still fix the system.

If over 12 months out of warranty, you should be able to get a issue free motherboard from Dell Spare parts (Might be kinda pricy though)

Dell XPS 1330 touchpad scroll areas quit working


Hi Patrick,
The most likely problem is that the ribbon cable from the touch pad is not making proper connection with the motherboard.
I would recommend you get this repaired under warranty, there is a bit of work involved in pulling the laptop apart to get to this cable & connector and if you do something wrong it could void your warranty.

I can give you instructions if you wish to try and fix it yourself.
Let me know.

Touch pad


HI,
The xps 1330 is known to have problems with the internal speakers. Kindly call Dell Tech support and get the same replaced,while your system is under warranty. The cable that connects the speakers inside is either not connected right or is broken. If you are geeting sound form the headphones , your soundcard is fine , and there is no software problem on the system.

Thanks
