However, a firmware update for this media panel posted on the Dell Community forums has been reported to fix this issue.Another solution for this issue is to power down the laptop and remove the battery, then holding the power button for 30 seconds to fully discharge all remaining electrical power in the system, draining any residual flea power.With the latest BIOS, higher-end LGA775 processors can be used, such as the Q9550 and Q9650.
Other issues with these models include overheating due to the hard-to-maintain heatsink and fan design, which is located in such a way that a general computer user is unable to access the heatsink and fan for cleaning or other maintenance.
The chassis design is highly reminiscent of Dell's SX2210 21.5 in LCD monitor.
The chassis can be customized with five different colors. Intel Pentium Dual-Core E5200 or E5400, Intel Core 2 Duo E7400, E7500, E8300, E8400, E8500 or Intel Core 2 Quad Q8200 or Q8400.
Dell's designers simply attempted to pack too much power into the 13-inch model.
In the arena of the lightweight notebooks, even one inch can make a difference, so sacrifices must be made.
