Once Todd told us, the Dell engineers will process the open issues list, and oh yes a new Dell ATI video driver and so on, "we keep you informed", "you can take us at our word" blah, blah ...result: nothing more happened since this!
Ok so I´ll take you at your word now Dell Todd and Bill and Ted and so on, and ask you:
"whats the state of affairs with the open issues?!?"
All open issues still bothers, especially the nonstop-running-fan und the cutted sound! I guess you had time enough to work on the 1747 issues now, but since weeks there are not the slighest news or infos from your side!
I have the problem with my usb ports the 2 on the right side of my studio 1747. When I connect an external usb drive or my psp it drops out and disconnects. When I connect to the USB sata it works fine. Does anyone have any suggestions ? it is annoying to keep switching devices back and fourth to one port.
Hi there. My first post...
I've only had 2 issues since purchasing my Studio 1747 in late March... random freezing (only fixed by shutting down with the power button), and the screen sometimes won't turn back on after being idle (I don't allow sleep, hibernation etc. only turning the screen off)...
Reinstalled Windows 7 and I've been on A08 successfully for a couple weeks but started having these problems again recently... no real change to the computer other than some Windows updates, which I've removed since... not enough time to judge if freezing has been fixed again but I'm still having the issues with the monitor after idling.
Driving me nuts...
Its been a few months now since i got the laptop and generally im happy with it, especially after the throttling was sorted but now i have a another rather annoying issue, i make music on the laptop at high volumes through an external soundcard (usb powered) and i get a lot of feedback from the power supply... by unplugging the power the feedback dramatically reduces to near nothing but plug it back in and there it is again, with a bit of research i have narrowed it down to a ground loop... That said even if i use the onboard sound to just listen to music the problem is still there.... someone suggested using inline surge suppressors but im not so sure.
Has anyone noticed this same problem?
Im about to buy a new and better external soundcard so that may help but im not holding my breath!
Is anyone at Dell going to get to grips with this continual fan running problem. Being new to this, I am not sure if this is a Dell forum, by that I mean do Dell read these posts. We all know there is a problem, but how can Dell be forced to look at this issue and come up with a fix. The only way I find I can stop the fan is to have prime ready to open. then when the fan continues to run and annoy me, I start Prime for a few moments then the fan slows and stops.
Permanent running fan on 1747 i7. I have tried to no avail to find the thread for this particular problem. I have had my Dell Studio 1747 for 3 weeks and the fan won't stop! Plus when the fan picks up I feel heat from the left side of the keyboard. Could someone post the hyperlink to the thread that covers this? I've used Dell computers for 15 years and this is the first time I've experienced this. I'm ready to call and demand a replacement.
I can understand your frustration. I thought this thread/forum was monitored by Dell, or a webmaster and they would pick up on postings . But I am not so sure now, as this problem has been around quite some while. I did try the bios update, but that didn't work, so I would not bother. If any one else knows how this forum works (does it gets monitored by Dell) then please post the answer.
