After reading this post, learned a few things.
for my future reference 😉
While drooling over American’s enormous choices of Dell notebook and configurations, I have encountered this error on Dell website.
We are sorry: XML Error: A start-tag was not matched with an end-tag
Match your tag Dell! People need your PC urgently, nah… just kidding 😉
*Same XML error happens on both Firefox and IE, can’t blame the browsers this time.
I sent my HP notebook to Harvey Norman on Monday, up to now (Friday), still no calls from those guys, ya… another “good” service from such a big company.
Anyway, after the incident on Tuesday (read Call from HP Service Center Regarding My Notebook Â» Internet Technology Blog|Gadgets|Reviews|Hypes|News), I still haven’t any calls from both Harvey Norman and HP service center regarding my “suspected mishandled” notebook, I decided to call Harvey Norman to find out the outcome.
1.25pm – no one pickup
1.40pm – no one pickup too
2.10pm – finally someone pickup, after giving my service form number, still no news from HP service center. I told the guy on the Tuesday incident, they promised to call HP center to find out (I can’t deal with HP directly, my extended warranty was bought from Harvey Norman)
3.00 pm – No calls yet.
Well, seems like I will have to make more calls next week, well done for the ‘good’ customer service, making the customers chasing after you is a surely a smart move in improving your business in the future, keep it going…
I am pretty sure the beep was coming from pc speaker because the main volume has been set to lowest setting.
At first I thought it was from the battery full indicator, but after using ac adaptor directly, same beep still coming out randomly.
CPU usage is not high and so as the temperature , so ruled out overheat problem.
Searching in the Net for similar problem I found the following:
It’s just 1 beep for like 1 second, and everything still works after it beeps, and it seems to only do it when I’m running Windows :confused:
and it is not battery (it’s on AC) or windows finding anything, because i’m just running outlook and a few apps for work
Anyone facing this strange beep problem on your Acer notebook?
One thing: Acer notebook keyboards flex! The keys went down too much when I typed, nothing to complain… begger can’t be chooser..
The true story is about an old man who sent his pc for repair and was told the service center has exchanged his old defective hard disk with a new one. What happened to the old hard disk with sensitive information inside (social security number, credit card info, bank statement, where you live, your phone number)?
The service center said they will drill a hole on the old hard drive. Few months later, some stranger called the old man saying he just bought the old man hard disk from a junk yard sale. He has got the phone number from the hard disk itself.
No body knows how the hard disk which was support to be drilled a hole went to a junk yard sale.
Note to myself: Try not storing any sensitive information of a hard drive, encrypt it, password protect it, or do what I did with my old hard disk: dissemble it, take out the two super powerful magnets and use the platters as cup cover (the thing you put under your hot cup of tea, forgot the name 😉 )
Continue from my previous post, i found also the pricing for intel processors
From the price list above, we can see the price for both core duo and core 2 duo processors.
T2300 (1.66G) same price as T2400 (1.83G) also same for T5600 (1.83G) = USD241
T2500 (2G) same price for T7200 (2G, but with extra 2MB L2 cache) = usd 294
The rest see for yourself… My point is, why is it so? Why dell, compaq and acer selling core 2 duo notebook much higher than core duo notebook, while the prices are the same for processors with same speed but different generation? Is this a normal practice in pc industry?
Gimme my core 2 duo, suckers!
While looking for the definition of ‘mishandling’ from hp website, i found the Maintenance and service guide document for my notebook.
My notebook being a tiny-winy celeron m 1.5GHz processor is a sucker for battery juice. It do not have speed-step technology not like its big brothers, such as pentium m, core duo and core 2 duo.
From the service guide, I found that the processor is upgradeable with the following processors
Intel Pentium M 745 (1.8-GHz) with 400-MHz FSB 373053-001
Intel Pentium M 735 (1.7-GHz) with 400-MHz FSB 373052-001
Intel Pentium M 725 (1.6-GHz) with 400-MHz FSB 367771-001
Intel Pentium M 715 (1.5-GHz) with 400-MHz FSB 383431-001
Intel Pentium M 715A (1.5-GHz) with 400-MHz FSB 380690-001
Intel Celeron M 370 (1.5-GHz) with 400-MHz FSB 383876-001
Intel Celeron M 360 (1.4-GHz) with 400-MHz FSB 380033-001
Intel Celeron M 350 (1.3-GHz) with 400-MHz FSB
Intel Celeron M 320 (1.3-GHz) with 400-MHz FSB 394734-001
Feeling itchy handed, I thought why dont I upgrade to a Pentium M processor, if the price is reasonable.
Guess what I found on HP Partsurfer site?
Pentium M 715 for USD 600
725 for USD 700
745 for USD 1150|?!?!
Hello, crazy ar? for USD 1150 I can buy a nice entry level core 2 duo notebook already..better go find 1 in pasar malam (night market)
