    I have the same issue but evidently nobody knows anything... elsewhere someone suggested it is a grounding impedence issue, perhaps run it to a proper ground and see if the same, that is the next thing I will try,,,,,,, waisting time trying to sort this........

    I had believed everything I read online on this problem to the point I believed it wasn't the power supply. Purchased a brand new powertech plus automatic voltage sensing 90w power supply and everything works PERFECT again! My power supply was making a whinning sound, but it was just slowly going dead, I had no idea, until one day it did die, and I was forced to buy another power supply.

My Stuido 1737 laptop won't boot up when I turn it on. How do I fix it

4 possibilities.
1 The dell studio 1737 power supply is duff. How do you know it is actually working? Have you been able to test it on another system?
2 The charging circuits in the laptop have failed. Only a workshop can test this.
3 The Battery is dead. How do you know it is good if the system is not working?
4 There is a mechanical connection problem. Damaged lead/plug/socket etc. Examine and swap out to check.

Note that the system would not work if 1, 2 and 4 were the problem. (Since the system should still work of AC even without a battery).So a battery problem is the lowest probability.

Dell studio 1737 speakers crackle and pop.

My best guess is, if they crackle with the speakers but not the headfones,  then replace the speakers. Must be a lose wire or something of that nature.

My charger gets too hot...

Chargers get hot, too hot to leave your hand on. Wires pulled out would be most likely be viewed as mechanical stress and is unlikely to be covered. To confirm you would have to contact Dell. If it stops charging altogether it had an intermitant opening and may need to be replaced.
