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?


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

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

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.

In reading this forum and feedback over the last week or so pertaining to the XPS 15 products and the Battery  I decided before my wife and I each plunk down $2300 each for new laptops I better find out if replacement batteries are available....  Well,   after being on the Phone with 5 different people today at Dell in both Sales and tech Support...  The Batteries Are Not Available.  That makes the Dell xps 15 the smallest door stop in my house.  
We started to look for replacements of our current Laptops and did alot of reading on the Dell XPS 15 with the 7700 HQ processor, 16 gb of ram and 512GB of SSD storage.... 4GB of Video ram and a 1050 processor.    The unit requires a 97Whr battery.    So,  I figure I'd check in to see what the cost of the replacement battery was and if it was available if we wanted to buy a spare..   I was floored by the amount of time it took to the the answer and what I was told... but in short here it is...
My first attempt was thru on line chat.. I was told that the battery was discontinued and that a reconditioned 43 wat would fit the Unit..  My first comment was what the heck do you do with a 43whr battery in this powerful laptop... but no matter how I asked the question the answer was the same...  So I inquired about one for a previous year 84whr battery and I got the same answer...    That tells me something is wrong they would ...

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

hello, my dell 5348 all in one glass cracked,   I bought a screen replacement and later found that it is without glass,  is it possible to take the glass out from outside, just leave the inside screen display,   will it work?  I don't need the touchscreen anyway.

The glass and front bezel are one assembly, and everything behind that goes in from the back.  You'll be left with no front glass or bezel.

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?

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.

There are no conflicts in device manager and it does recognized scanner by name and model when using driver version " MiraScan V3.20". Anyone have any ideas how to deal with this problem.

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?


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

The drivers can be found on Toshiba European driver page;

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 ;)

I am not 100% sure which model this one is. I bought it around April, 2016. It is the one with the QHD/touch screen, 16GB RAM/512GB and the i7-6500.
The problem is very simple: horrible battery life. In the BIOS, system does report battery as very healthy. All tests pass just fine.
To rule out any weird upgrade issue, I did a fresh install of Windows 10 Build 1709 (Fall Creators Update) and then got the drivers from Dell. BIOS is at the latest for this model. The drivers show as all up-to-date. No other piece of software has been installed on the machine (well except DropBox). Plain Windows 10 install. Nada/Zippo.
We are talking about 33% going down the drain after an hour of doing nothing. I am just watching the machine now synchronizing my Dropbox. Regardless of now using the WiFi extensively for the sync, the battery issue was there before what prompted me to do a full reinstall. It was never like that. I remember when I got the machine, I could work pretty much 6-7 hours straight on it with Microsoft Office. No issues. I cannot pinpoint when it started doing this. If it is a Windows 1709 issue or if it was there before on 1703.
I can upgrade Windows to any license if needed (I have all) to test it but I do believe it would make no difference.
Anyone with a similar experience?
I do understand battery life does change based on usage pattern, applications, how old the battery is and so on but this is beyond acceptable. It is abysmal.

I have Dell Inspiron 5547 laptop (Touch Screen, 15 inches, 16 GB RAM and i7 4th Gen processor, Out of Warranty). Some days back, suddenly the display went dim and anything is hardly visible. After some initial investigation, the display chip (may be VGA or LED display chip) on the motherboard appears to be burnt out (may be due to voltage surge). Even the numbers printed on the chip is not readable because of which it is difficult for the local repairing shops to repair this problem.
I think Dell India Service Center doesn't deal with chip level repair and hence replacing motherboard is the only way they can fix this. This will be very costly (considering that the laptop is not under warranty so will have to pay for warranty extension, motherboard replacement and repair service) and time consuming.
Hence, to avoid all this I have come here to seek some assistance.
If there are anyone using the same laptop (Inspiron 5000 series 5547 Touch Screen Display with i7 4th Gen Processor and 16 GB RAM) then could you please take a clear picture of your laptop's motherboard or if you recognize the display chip then only that should be sufficient. In this case, I can read the chip related number from the image and try to repair it.
What are the charges for buying a warranty for the laptop, motherboard of my laptop and repairing charge? 

Request your response and help.

A:Display Issue - Dim Display for Dell Inspiron 5000 (Model 5547) - Touch Screen Display with i7 4th Gen Processor and 16 GB RAM

You'll have to call Dell about the possibility of a warranty extension;  in the US, it's sometimes possible but will likely run over $300 -- or about what a board replacement would cost.
If you're getting video, the GPU is OK -- and it's more likely the power circuit to the backlight that's bad.  It'll likely cost as much to repair as to replace the board -- though you'll still be putting $300-400 into an out of warranty system, so replacing the system may be a better idea (if you do this, consider buying a 3-year warranty with the next system).

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?

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.

Hi! Another nubie here! I purchased a 12a1990 cartridge by mistake for use in a Lexmark X73. I was probably selecting the new cartridge from the X63 page. Turns out the X63 uses the same regular black and color cartridge, but also has a photo color cartridge, which is the 12a1990. The X73 however, does not have a photo cartridge listed for it. So, I figured, what the heck, and installed it into my X73. It installed, but on the test page there was blue and red only. Is there any reason (other than an empty tank for the yellow not to work, for example a different configuration for the connections between the photo cartridge and printer socket.

Can I just pull the drive from that computer and use it to replace the 80 GB drive in a refurbished Dell Optiplex GX280? I am concerned that Windows Genuine Advantage will have a a hissy fit and say the installation in the new computer is not valid. Both computers have Windows XP Pro COA stickers.

I spilled coffee on my laptop today and it went blank, i need to save my info and tried locating a model number, but there is no name, no model number, no serial number, no service tag, nothing, absolutely nothing.

There is a white sticker on the back and when i peeled it off, it just says Service Tag label 71.5x5.5mm
This is the most astounding stupid thing i have ever seen from a tech company and I have been in IT for over 20 years.
Its unbelievable and I want someone at Dell to respond what an ordinary person in an emergency who has lost everything in an accident would have to do to find this secret bit of information, the model number of my laptop.
I cannot find anything except a big DELL logo on the top of the lid, thats it.....it wont turn on, or I could have gone into the BIOS etc...now what do I do?

A:I cannot find any Model number on my Dell Laptop

I don't know about your laptop, my Dell Precision M6300 and Dell Latitude D531 and Dell Latitude D620 all have the model numbers clearly printed on the laptop case.
