Does dell xps 12 model 9Q33 lcd screen would work with xps 12 model 9Q23?

Q: Does dell xps 12 model 9Q33 lcd screen would work with xps 12 model 9Q23?

i broke my dell xps 12 model 9Q23 lcd screen and i've been searching high and low for a replacement screen but to no avail. I have however found a replacement lcd screen for dell xps model 9Q33, from a quick google search, they both look similar to one another but with different specs.
So i was wondering if i purchased replacement lcd screen for model 9Q33, would it work on model 9Q23?

thanks.

A: Does dell xps 12 model 9Q33 lcd screen would work with xps 12 model 9Q23?

According to parts-people.com, the LCDs for one don't work with the other despite the similarity in design of the two systems.
There are some places showing screens for the earlier 9Q23 in stock.

As title says, I replaced the b156hw01 LCD screen in my laptop with another b156hw01 LCD screen. Iopened the front panel on my laptop, unscrewed the screen, disconnected the cable thingy, took it out, put new one in, connected cable thingy, screwed it in, replaced front panel. I turned it on and it started up fine, then I noticed it had been on the 'windows is starting up' screen for about 7 minutes and after staring for a while, I noticed the logo glow wasn't moving. I turned it off And
turned it on, and all that happens is the backlight turns on. Nothing shows up no matter how long I keep it on for. Help?

I have an iBuyPower... I don't even know, I got it over a year or two ago and I don't see it on the site anymore... Model number on the sticker on the bottom of the laptop says W86CU... It had the broken screen for 3-4 months before it was replaced, and the new screen hasn't worked for about 6 months, around Christmas time... So... I need help on figuring out what is wrong with it

I got my laptop just a few weeks ago, and it came with Windows 10.  Soon afterwards the touch screen started not working, very similar to the posts about the USB device being powered down to save battery (you can find those posts, from Dec 2013 else on this site).
However, I'm on Windows10, with the recent large November public update applied.  In device manager there is no 'USB Input Device' listed under Human Interface Devices.
Further: the System's Settings->About panel the OS is reporting under "Pen and Touch" that "No pen or touch input is available for this display".
So, beyond USB power settings, it seems like I'm completely missing the device driver for the touch screen.
I have applied every driver, bios & firmware update that I can find on the Dell support site.  Nothing fixed things.
Any hints?  Am I looking for a display driver or an input driver or something else?
Thanks!
Dave.

A:Dell XPS 15 (Model 9550) touch screen no longer working.

Same problem here, plus I see an “Unknown USB Device (Device Descriptor Request Failed)” in my device manager constantly appearing and disappearing. Also the touch does not work in the Diagnostic application you can enter via the bios. I don’t know if it should work there, on the 9530 Model it did…
I have the device now for about a week and I think Dell should again be deeply ashamed of what they deliver to their loyal customers.
With the 9530 model they refused to repair the coil whine problem a lot of people complained about. This was really annoying but at least I could work with the device.
The 9550 model has not two issues which really prevent me from doing my work.
As soon as you activate hyper-v the screen starts flickering and the display driver starts crashing.
Touchscreen not working.
We are talking about really expensive hardware here and it’s extremely frustrating when you experience more troubles with a 2.500$ Notebook than you do with 500$ hardware.
And on top of it all they told me today that they could not replace my display because Dell has no replacement parts on stock and they don’t know when they will get them. And that’s exactly what you get when you pay for “Next-Business-Day” “Pro” support.
If the device does not work at the end of the week I will send it back.

I have a nvidia riva tnt2 model 64/model 64 pro pci bus videocard.
The other day I bought the follow up of MOH (sorry forgot the name because returning it to the store)but ofcource you already see the problem rightaway:error log file of the game told me the card was missing out on some functions.Can this card be updated so "heavy duty games won't be a problem in the future?(il2/fb-wolvenstein-cfs2 run good though!)

Thanx for listening!
 

A:nvidia riva tnt2 model 64/model 64 pro update wanted

Well...you can get the latest drivers for the card, but it won't help that much, because it's a TNT2...and PCI....

If you wanted to play newer games, you'd have to get a new video card....but if you're running a PCI video card right now, then it may not be worth it...check if you have an AGP slot, is should be above the PCI slots on the motherboard, and slightly offset from them...if you have an AGP slot, then that's good, because you could get a good video card...but if you don't, you'll probably be better off getting a whole new system rather than just upgrading the video.

I have the Nvidia Riva TNT2 Model 64 / Model 64 pro video card and i want to install a game but the video card has to be in 256 color mode and in Windows i can only go to 32 bit what can i do? Any comments or posts would be great! Thank YOU!
 

A:Nvidia Riva TNT2 Model 64 / Model 64 pro Problem?

Just to be clear, 32-bit is actually 16,777,216 colors, so its much more then 256 which is just 256 colors. So for 256 you need to lower the color depth not increase it.

Hi, i am a newby, but hi!

I have an old, very old, but perfectly working Toshiba Satellite Pro. It was purchased in October 2003. On the underside, it states it is a "Satellite Pro A10", but it also states on the part number that reads "PSA15E-02VPC-EN"

Is it a A10 or A15. Also which ever it is which model is it, when i visit the online download page for the drivers, there re a number of various models, i cannot work out which one my pc is?

There are eleven A10 models from A10-S100 to A10-S178 and eight A15 models from A15-S127 to A15-S1692.

So it could be any of 19 models? Any help very much appreciated.

P.S. I have formatted the hardrive, installed a clean copy of Windows XP, so now i need the drivers.

A:Satellite Pro A10 - But cannot work out what model it is?

Hi

According to your post you have a Satellite Pro A10 PSA15E series

The drivers can be found on Toshiba European driver page;
http://eu.computers.toshiba-europe.com

But the notebook is old so you have to check the Archive area to get the drivers for this series. In product type choose simple Archive and then point to Satellite Pro A10 PSA15E ;)

Friends,
In printing envelope addresses using the Micro Word, I was getting GREEN instead of BLACK as my color, when I did the Dell call India/Phillipines, they told me how to get Black color, it is very simple, just click on the Printer Preferences Box for keeping the colors Black and White, no color, it worked. I hope I am making sense.
But my question, the rep in India said that that is why Dell can out with the Model 922 as they have had problems with 920. Should Dell replace the 920 for me, it seems that it should be recalled?
Cordially,
Ira
 

A:Dell Printer Model A920

I sure think they ought to replace it. Dell has sold (given away) a lot of junky printers where the cartridges cost more than the printer. However, convincing Dell that they should replace is is where the problem arises.

A:How to dissasemble Dell speaker model no. A215

A lot of these "smaller" speakers are likely a snap closure assembly. The front/back snap together?; rather than use screws? Have you had a look under the base/stand itself to see if there any screw visible there?If there are... then - ensuring you use the "correct" screwdriver head ' - you may be able to remove them and possibly the case will start to part?, or at least allow you to gently prise the front/back apart? Do NOT force anything - and if using any kind of "prying too" ideally use a plastic one.. Less likely to damage the case?But if one hasn't seen one of these speakers in real life? it's not easy to advise more than in general?I trawled briefly with google for a service manual - no joy; likewise any how to disassemble info - again no joy?They are Altec Lansing (as are many of Dell speakers - rebadged to Dell). Possibly they (Altect) can help you if you contact them?

Hello all. Pretty simple question. Quick back story, have a 2006 Dell Inspiron 6400 laptop...was not charging battery... technician said it's not a DC jack issue (he put in a new one)...it is the section of the motherboard where the DC jack is that does not "know" when the adapter is plugged in.

So with that said, I want to take a crack at replacing the motherboard (I know I am crazy). Is there a specific model # of a motherboard that I need to look up or how does that work? If a model # is needed, where would that info be located. I am hoping the info is not in the laptop because it's dead. Thank you for your help...

Hello everyone this is my first post. I have looked everywhere and I can not come up with a solution for this issue. So I decided to do a clean reinstall of windows because of previous sound card issues. I bought a top of the line card hoping that it will fix my driver issues. It was a sound blaster fatality pro series. This did the exact same thing when I tried to update the drivers from some unknown issues. So, to me the reasonable solution was a clean wipe.. This turns out to not be a good idea. But I really had no choice seeing as the installations were so messed up. I did everything I could but with no avail. Now here comes the real problem. I put in the XP SP 2 CD hoping that everything will be fine and it was........ everything worked like a charm, but after the formatting the setup starts up again. Now I get an error called a cyclic redundancy check error. This causes the setup to restart and I have done everything and I am stuck in a fail cycle. The CD is clean and I have no idea how to access the checkdisk feature when I have no operating system. Please Help Me. I am completely stuck!!!!!!

A:Dell XPS 2005 model? horrible xp reinstallation issues.

Hi hackroot and welcome to TSF

I would think you have a hardware issue. I'm not a Dell user, so I really don't know what a Dell model 2005 is. If it is a desktop, remove the side panel and blow out the dust and cobwebs using a can of compressed air. Clean the fan blades with alcohol and qtips. Be sure to blow out the heat sinks and also the powersupply. If you haven't been in a computer before, be SURE to touch the bare metal case before touching anything inside.

If my memory serves, a cyclic redundancy check (CRC) is when data is written somewhere (memory or harddisk) and read back. If it don't match, you get a CRC error. That said, reseat the cables to the harddrive, CD/DVD drives, and the motherboard. Do both the power and data cables. Also, reseat the memory sticks. If there are any jumpers on the back of the harddrive or CD/DVD drives, reseat them also. The reseating process is not just pushing in on the cables, but pulling them back some and sliding them back on. That action is needed to insure the pins and recepticles have good contact.

Try this and see if it helps
Best regards,

The text on it is completely zoomed out, I have went into the properties and maximized the font to no avail. Here's what it looks like, the image may not do it justice - I really have to squint to read it. 
Most other programs are like this too. Unity 3D looks really blurry, Sublime Text 2 looks the same. Text looks like it has been zoomed in on a few times so it fits the resolution and as a result you can almost see the individual pixels on text. 
Here's another program: Malwarebytes

This does feel like a bit of a joke considering the laptop is worth well over a thousand pounds.

A:Terrible resolution issues on Dell XPS 13 2015 QHD model

Hello,
Have you gone into the screen resolution control panel for your system and selected the option to "Make text and other items larger or smaller" ?
If not, right click anywhere on your desktop and select the option to change screen resolution.   You should see that text size option near the bottom of the screen.    Alternately, you can go into your control panel on your system and go into the "Appearance and Personalization" section.  
TBH, I'm not sure that text control will work in the Command Prompt or not.  I would think that it basically another Window that the OS can control the font size, etc., but I've never really tried it so I am not sure it will work.   You may need to change the overall resolution of the monitor to get to an appropriate screen size.
Let me know if that text size adjustment helps or not.  if not, I'll see if I can find something else that may help.
Todd

I just discovered that Dell has decided not to include my Studio XPS 8100 desktop for upgrades to Windows 10!  Why is this?  I have had Dell products for over 25 years and I have kept coming back because of my experience with Dell.  Unfortunately, this latest piece of news has just taken the wind out of my sails!  It appears that my only recourse is to by a new desktop!

A:Studio XPS 8100 = Why won't Dell support Windows 10 for this model?

The offer of a free upgrade from Win7/8.x to 10 comes from Microsoft, not DeLL.
Are you saying that DeLL has advised you that something in that system's hardware [software, or drivers] setup in not compatible with Win 10?   That's the only plausible explanation that comes to mind.
EDIT:   I believe some people have done so successfully... and hopefully one of them will reply here.

Whoopee, my PS3 just died, just in time for Christmas! Never mind.
Anyway, when I was putting it in its grave (closet), I noticed that the power cord for looks nearly the same as my iMac's power cord. I plugged the generic end in the back, and it fit in perfectly. It could make a good spare power cord. However I stopped cold just as I was plugging the other end into the outlet. This power cord is designed for PS3, not an iMac. The last thing I want to happen is my precious iMac blowing up just because I was testing an incorrect power cord or something.
I looked the matter up on Google with no good results. However, what I know from iMacs is that if the power cord fits in the back, it will work just fine. But, with my Apple Care Warranty long gone, I don't want to be taking any chances. Can anyone here confirm if it's safe to do this? Thanks.

This old printer worked wonderful. I would like to re-install it. When I send a test page to it Printer Settings reports One document in Que, Status Printing, but it doesn't print.

I have connected the printer with a parallel cable and in the printer window it said Ready Standby.

I download driver R166996 and unpacked it to C:/Program Files/Dell/Win32/PCL/English/dixblzi and clicked Open. It said Installation completed successfully.

I went to Devices and Printer, clicked on Add a Printer, selected Add a Local printer use Existing LPT1, Dell Laser Printer 3000cn PCL6; have Disk, and then I browsed to where I unpacked the driver. The installation Completed successfully.

Why can't I print a test page? I shut off the printer I ran Problem Solver. It cleared Que. I tried to print a test page again and it sent the Test page to the printer but it still didn't print.

I unplugged the printer, rebooted the system, plugged it in and tried to send a test page again. It still didn't print. How can it be that Windows 7 sees the printer, the printer reports everything is Ready and yet it doesn't print?

I believe the printer is in working order but something is wrong with the communications. Can someone help me.

Failed to find driver for ‘Video Controller’, Dell Optiplex 280 model -Win 7 ultimate 32-bit
Error message (when attempting to play Chess or any other games that came with windows); “Hardware acceleration is either disabled or not supported by your video card driver, which could slow performance. Make sure you have the latest video card drivers installed.”
It has been over 3 months since I have been looking for a solution. About a year ago, I moved from XP to Window 7 ultimate and everything worked nicely. Then I run into a problem which I had to reinstall windows again. I did and everything worked fine except that I can’t play any games. Device manager shows ‘video controller’ driver is missing. So I tried to update the driver, the system couldn’t find it. I went to the dell site and there isn’t anything for my system for window 7. The only driver I can find was for window vista. I tried that didn’t seem to be compatible. So far I have tried pretty much everything that has been suggested on sites I came across except updating the driver through windows update which isn’t feasible given the type of connection I have.
Mind you, I don’t have high speed. I use CDMA and the speed I get is nothing more than dial up. You have no idea how long it takes to create an account on here and post this. I tried to google patiently but no luck. I noticed that there are also other people who are having the same problem but as I said earlier I have attempted whatever I can.

A:Failed to find driver for ‘Video Controller’, Dell Optiplex 280 model -Win 7 ultimate

The Dell OptiPlex GX280 desktop is a very old model and only has driver support for Windows 2000 and Windows XP.
It does not have driver support for Windows Vista or Windows 7.

It has 4 slots and supports a maximum of 4 GB of RAM.
If you're going to run Windows Vista or Windows 7 in it, you need to add at least another 1 GB to the 1 GB that's currently in it.
Here is the recommended 2 GB(1 GB x2) kit for it.

The only way that you're likely going to resolve the display issue is to install a video card that supports Windows 7.

A:how to fix black screen gateway laptop model w350a t-series

If you never ever see anything whatsoever on the screen it is a hardware fault.Assuming the above and if the computer sounds as if it is booting up normally then it could be:The connectors at either end of the cable between the mother board and the screen, the cable, or even the screen itself.With the computer booted up try moving the lid back and forth slowly. If you suddenly get a glimpse of a picture then it is most likely cable failure at the hinge, or maybe connectors loose.If you see anything but black on the screen during bootup then this could be a different matter.EDIT: Tidied up wording.Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanksmessage edited by Derek

Hi all,

a couple of days ago I was working on my Dell XPS 12 using only battery and then suddenly it went black. No way to restart it. Arrived at home, plugged into the socket and it was all ok, but it is only working with socket connected.
I noticed that battery now is always at 79% and not moving at all. I thought that I need a new battery but the weird think is that USB 3.0 that I used for charging smartphone, is now working only when the computer is running: even if socket is connect, with computer off, is now not anymore charging.
I am in the doubt that the problem is not the battery but something more serious, obviously I do not want to buy a £85 new battery to test it.. Any help is appreciated. Thank you much.
Best regards,

A few weeks ago, I developed two problems with my Dell XPS 12 that seem like they may be related, but unfortunately, I haven't been able to solve either.
1) The first issue is that sometimes when I turn on my laptop (this has been progressing to EVERY time), it emits a series of 8 short beeps.  I can then turn it back off and on, and it starts normally.  (Except for today, which took several tries.)  I found that 8 short beeps is the beep code for the LCD screen.  However, I'm not having any screen issues.  I also ran the full diagnostics from Dell support and passed everything, including all LCD tests.
2) The second issue is regarding screen resolution.  Again, not EVERY time, but sometimes after my laptop has been in sleep mode and I "wake" it, the screen has resized from its normal HD (I have it on the recommended screen setting) to a much smaller, square width, resetting all my windows with it.  I can set it back, but it's VERY annoying to keep having to do this!  I have tried a number of fixes I found online, including making register alterations and changing when the laptop sleeps, but none has helped.
I'm by no means a computer expert, but I can find my way around with guidance, and I would appreciate any help with this!!!

I'm helping a less-technical friend with an issue on her older Thinkpad, which she was given by a boss.  Before I ask any specific questions though, I obviously need to know which model she has so that I can post to the right category. I'm not very familiar with Thinkpads myself so forgive my questions. (I have looked in the FAQ but didn't see what I need there.)
 
I asked her the model number and she found this on the computer:
 
Type 2373 - 7CU S/N [deleted for privacy]
 
I googled a bit but Type 2373 does not appear to be a model number because I've found T40, T41 and T42 (at least) that all indicate Type 2373. T40, T41 and T42 are model numbers, right? How do I get the model number from the information I've provided? Or do I need more information, like a serial number? I'll be seeing her tomorrow and can gather anything I need at that point. She says the laptop has an IBM logo, not a Lenovo logo, so I assume this is a fairly old model, dating back before IBM sold off its PC hardware business.
 
Also, may I suggest that determining what model you have should be added to the FAQ? It seems like a very fundamental thing that you absolutely have to know to get any further information.
 
Also, may I request that this post NOT be moved to a more appropriate place (if there is one) until I've had a chance to read the answer to my question, otherwise I may not find it. I'll acknowledge the answer when I see it so you know it's safe to move it to the p... Read more

I had a post on here talking about my computer failing, finding out it was the vcard, i am looking for another. My card is a evga 7800GTX 256 (model 528). Can i use a model 525 (said to be clocked 20Mhz lower)? They are both the same GPUs, and some sites says that it doesnt matter as long as the gpus are the same, but what can i expect with the small speed difference? Would they both have to operate at 430MHz? or should i try to overclock the lesser one?
 

A:about sli (using same gpu, different model)

Last I read from nVidia, they had to be the same exact card, that may have changed though. I thought I had seen a thread here that said they had changed it so they could be different but with a performance decrease..............I can't seem to find that thread though.

Hi Folks,

I have two Dell DIMs 8300. One has 1Gb and 40GB HD ATA and the other 512Kb RAM & 120Gb SATA HD. Is it possible for me to remove RAM from a slot in the 40GB and insert it into an available socket on the mobo to increase the RAM in the 120Gb without causing problems?

(ESD precaution would be taken into account of course)

Regards

PFJ
 

A:RAM from one PC (same model) to another

Sure its possible, if it actually USES the same type of ram. The worst it should do is fail to post correctly. ESD ommitting of course

First of all, hey!

I do add-ons for EA Sports NHL-series, and we have a whole community for it.
This year, EA decided to change the model files from .o to .ebo, and as far as we know, no-one has cracked them yet.

So, if somebody here is willing to try, let me know about how you're progressing.

Link to the .ebo file: http://www.netikka.net/pieni.ihme/Antti/FACE421.ebo

Thanks in advance!
 

A:.ebo model files.

You're not trying this I guess...

Somebody say something!

hi, I am thinking about buying a macbook for my first Mac experience. (I have never had any Apple product). I have a couple of questions.1. I don't like to turn off my computer even I go to bed, is it bad for a macbook to be ON for long period of time - a continuous few weeks or months.2. I don't play games or do any graphics work, most of the time watching youtube, checking email or skype, is the most inexpensive one and low-end model already good enough?3. Can I use my macbook as a PC (running windows 7) when sometimes I want to get back to windows environment, does it work perfectly and function fully or does it just act as an emulation or not something suitable for windows environment?4. Can I connect my portable or desktop external hard drive for PC to a macbook? Or should I buy a portable hard drive specially designed for macbook in Apple stores?

A:new to Mac - please recommend a model

First of all, you can run Windows  7 on a Mac book. With some limitations.Apple support provides information on how to do it.See here:Boot Camp: System requirements for Microsoft Windows QuoteThe keyboard and mouse or trackpad that came with your Mac (If they aren?t available, use a USB keyboard and mouse)A minimum of 2 GB of RAM, 30 GB of free disk space are recommended if you are installing Windows for the first time, or 40 GB of free disk space if you are upgrading from a previous version of WindowsAn authentic Microsoft Windows full install disc or ISO fileCurrent Apple PCs will also run Windows 8.1, which you can girt free for awhile. My recommendation is to use Windows 8.1 and see if you like it and forget windows 7.As to which Mac, I do not fell qualified to say. Maybe somebody else.

HI,
1. First of all I'm sorry for the English , I do not speak the language

2. This failure occurred on a new computer I bought two days ago

I read all your manuals for this problem and still not solved the problem.

This problem occurred when I was asked by your support software to install a new driver in BIOS.(ver.1.2.2)
The failure occurred immediately after booting.
what should I do?Eitan D.

Is there any possibility of getting batteries for a very old computer in NYC?
I'm told I need:
P/N 30807 CK-SUM 3A00
SYS. 333 S/L REV A03
and
840 (4.5. volts)

The person who's telling me they're unobtainable doesn't speak much English, and I'm not sure he really knows. As a matter of fact, I'd also be grateful for any suggestions of a competent affordable computer repair place in Manhattan.

Suggestions are appreciated!
