I recently noticed that two of the case torx screws have fallen out. Where can I find replacements? I believe that the carbon fiber bottom of the case allows the screws to loosen over time.

A:Dell XPS 15 9530 case torx screws

I'm sure you can order them through Dell Spare Parts, or if you're ok with potentially reduced aesthetics, just take one to a local hardware store and ask someone to help you find a matching screw.  As long as the length, inner diameter, thread pitch, and head size match, you're good to go.  You might even prefer to buy Philips head versions and replace all of them. That said, if the existing screws fell out because the threads in the chassis itself are weak, then replacements will fall out as well, so you may want to buy spares.

Hi, Is it possible to have the back cover screws replaced if they wear off? Since mine is starting to wear off due to I got 2 ssd and one of them is my home use ssd and other one is for work/testing ssd so I switch between them alot depending what I'm doing and I noticed couple screws of mine are begining to wear off so it's starting to get harder on unscrew them due to + shape is becoming more rounded each time almost, the laptop itself has no damage on motherboard or any inside area only screws on back cover is wearing out so is it possible to have this fixed or something and does it void the warranty if only screws wear off? I hope not since if so it would be ridiculous reason :/

Warning

It is imperative to check the tightening of the screws of the laptop cover.
If a screw is missing on the hinged side, when opening the screen it is possible that the remaining fixatin will break.
The screws are equipped with thread brake but it becomes inoperative with time

The repair consists in changing all the bottom of the laptop.
What is not easy, the motherboard is fixed inside

I am looking to upgrade the RAM in my Lenovo Flex 6 (14"), but I cannot seem to find a screwdriver that matches the screws that hold the bottom plate in place. They are six-pointed. On the Hardware Maintenance Manual it says that they are Plum Flower Screws (6.5mm, M2), but I cannot find anything matching that description online.

Hi all,
Unfortunately in the process of adding more ram to my dell laptop I managed to break a couple of the hinges on the base cover and lose the metal cylinder which surrounds the single captive screw.
The bottom of my laptop practically threatens to fall off now and the screw is constantly falling out. No amount of twisting secures the screw, which also makes me fear that I may have damaged something.
Any suggestions?  

A:Dell 7567 Gaming Bottom Cover and Screws

If the laptop is still functioning without the screw in place, I doubt you broke anything else. Replace the base cover. The part number is V71WR. Call Dell Spare Parts 1-800-357-3355 and ask for price and availability of the Dell part number. Or simply search the web for the part number.

Hello, I am a certified repair technician for a large company. I am also Lenovo certified through my company for warranty repairs. We have ran into an issue with a T450 laptop we have not seen before.  The system came in with a no POST issue. We unplugged the internal and external battery and did the reset by pressing and holding the power button and the small micro switch on the system board for 30 seconds. System would not POST so we ordered a new system board. The new board will NOT work with the bottom base cover installed. It will work with the base off, but as soon as it is put on again, the system does not POST. We then have to unplug both batteries and reset the board in order to even get it POST again (with or without batteries). It does work, with base installed, and no batteries plugged in. However, it also works with batteries installed, and no base cover.  What is causing this problem? We have tried other batteries and bases with no resolution.

I volunteered to help a friend upgrade the memory and SSD in their Yoga 460. I've worked on a lot of older ThinkPads, and the HMM made it look pretty easy. But when it says "pry" off the bottom cover, they are not kidding! Unfortunately I'd misplaced my spudgers, so I used an old credit card to help pry the cover off. In the process I broke one of the clips near the power connector. I think I pushed the credit card inward a little too hard. The machine went back together OK, but of course there is now a tiny gap where that clip isn't holding it. My friend treats computers fairly roughly and may not care, but it's bugging me a bit. I should have looked more closely before putting the machine back together, but now I don't remember whether the clip I broke off is part of the base cover or part of the piece it snaps onto (the keyboard bezel?). Would anyone happen to know? If the clip was part of the base cover it would be pretty easy to get a new one and replace it. Thanks!

Hello everyone, hope we're all well! I'm hoping someone can help me! I recently got a HP Pavilion 15-aw065sa and I love it. I decided to upgrade the SSD, and sadly in doing so, have slightly cracked the underside plastic (about an inch along from the middle of the rear towards the centre of the case). It's not a biggie, but I'd really know if there is anywhere (be it HP or someone else) where I can PAY MONEY (to a limit, lets not go silly, it's just a piece of plastic) to get a replacement. I'm also looking at getting an optical HDD caddy, so a DVD drive front replacement would be useful too! If anyone can help please let me know, it's a great laptop! EDIT: Should mention I checked the part surfer, as well as ebay, and sadly can't find anything

I opened a service request at Dell site. then I was talking to the part list sale department.
I send them the photos of uninstalled parts (1 & 2) 
I asked Dell to have the price for these two parts.
I wanted to purchase these two "Display BackCover & base assembly " (with some attachments on them)

The Display BackCovly was easily uninstalled , with the guide of the user-manual doc.

As is common on hybrid systems, the entire top assembly is fused together with adhesive.  It's all but impossible to disassemble the upper assembly without destroying the glass, LCD and/or defacing the back plastic - as Dell informed you, the entire upper half of the system must be replaced as a single unit.
You'll find this design very common these days on all systems of this type.

Hello,
I would like to kindly ask everyone in this forum that has an XPS 9530 to let me know if they are experiencing the same issue as I am. As soon as I plug any phone device (Android, BB, iphone, Ipad) to any USB port (2.0 or 3.0), the plugged-in sound plays, then unplugged, and then it will connect/disconnect/reconnect randomly until it is unplugged.

Plugged it into the adaptor and got five beeps. I?ve had this problem before and solved it by removing the battery and pressing the power button down to drain power or whatever it is.

Take the battery out of the system -- or disconnect it.  If that solves the problem, you've found the culprit.  If not, it's more likely a bad mainboard.

If you plan to replace the 2.5" hard drive with a 2.5" SSD, that'll work fine.  Though these will also take card-format drives, they're the older mSATA format -- not the now common M.2.  That'll limit a card drive to 512G -- I don't think you'll find any larger capacity mSATA drives.

Change the size of all items : 150% [Screen Resolution > Make text and other items larger or smaller]

I find it small, but changing to 200% fonts becomes big on other application . 
I tried, 2048 x 1152 and it looks blurry ? or its just me ;)
Out of the box, do you know the resolution settings ? I wasn't able to check since I re-image everything with windows 8.1 Pro , as soon as I open the box.

I do hope you guys can share your settings and comments.

Update: I change resolution to 2048 x 1152 , and Change the size of all items : 100%, looks okay but, kinda blurry or just me and  Metro Stye looks big. :(
 
Your thoughts :D

Hi DVE7,Thanks for posting.Please run the diagnostics by pressing F12 at startup, if there's no hardware issues, then more than likely the video drivers have become corrupted.  Have you tried un-installing and re-installing the video drivers?

Hi there.
I'm trying to connect 2 external monitors to my DELL xps-9530. One of them is working properly via DP -> DP, second one I'm trying to connect by DP -> HDMI, but it somehow doesn't even get identified by windows.
I'm running Windows 10, both monitors are DELL U2415.

It should work with the nVidia version of the system -- it won't without disabling the internal screen if you have the Intel video version.
