My dad's Studio 17 has horrible wavy lines all over the screen (really fuzzy). It has been like this since he first got the laptop, but he thought it was interference caused by his numerous ham radio antennas. He recently brought it to my house and it does the same thing so it is not interference. I called Dell (when the warranty was still in effect) and all I got was ''sorry the screen is not covered under the warranty - do you want to buy an upgraded warranty?


Hi,Dell have told you that the screen is not covered by the warranty? All hardware is covered by the warranty except the software. This means that Dell have tried to sell you extended warranty on the laptop when really is WAS covered. ... Dell PC Laptops

Bad Harddrive I spoke with one of your tech-reps (Byteguy) Great help, but I want to go deeper. After doing a great deal of research, I have found that Dell places a Diagnostic partition on the front of the drive that can not be accessed through normal means. I believe my failure is due to a firmware corruption. Dell only has the upgraded firmware flash for the C610 and I have a Fujitsu MHS2020AT harddrive. Fujitsu does not have the firmware flash for this anymore and I can't find it anywhere. D
