Dell Inspiron 2. Several Inspiron owners in our discussion forums claim that the standard WXGA x display suffers from "graininess" but our higher resolution screen suffered from no such problems. The display features fairly bright and even backlighting but the screen appeared a little dim under the strong lights in our office. Horizontal and vertical viewing angles were good enough for two or three people to watch a DVD on the screen. The keys have minimal travel with excellent cushion and response, and there are dedicated keys for home, end, page up, and page down. Both the vertical and horizontal scroll sections are accurate and responsive.

Another problem arises after much use with the motherboard power connector; flap-like metal parts which contact the outside of the plug lose their tension and fail to make contact so that power does not reach the computer. The "official" solution is to replace the connector on the motherboard, which requires partial dis-assembly of the computer and desoldering a part with several pins; many companies charge a considerable sum for the work involved.
Various simple alternatives have been suggested; for example a thin "skin" of solder on the outside of the barrel of the connector on the PSU with care not to overheat the connector's plastic parts; and this thickened connector should not be used with other, not faulty Dell laptops, as it will stretch the springs and damage or even overheat the plug and socket assembly, causing them to melt or bond permanently.
One other problem can happen with the wattage rating of the power supply. There are 2 Dell power supplies that were used for different Inspiron models which have the same plug assembly and voltage, a 65 watt supply model PA-6 and a 90 watt supply model PA Some models for example the Inspiron shipped with a PA If a PA-6 or equivalent aftermarket supply is used in these models then the system might not boot at times.
In such cases, it will light the battery light for a few seconds when the supply is plugged in. This can also happen if the power supply becomes marginal. Marginal supplies can show as supplying full voltage even if tested with a volt meter while the supply is plugged into the computer and an attempt is made to turn on the computer. These problems are discussed in detail, and solutions and workarounds suggested, in a discussion on Tom's hardware site,  and on The Laptop Junction site.
Unlike many laptops that use a mechanical switch to detect when the lid is closed, in these systems the sensor is a magnetic reed switch that is located between the touchpad and the front edge of the laptop. There is a magnet that is located in the top lid above this switch, and when the lid is closed the magnet triggers the reed switch.
If the magnet loses strength then the system will not go into suspend or hibernation if the lid is closed. The magnet strength can be checked by running a paper clip along the top edge of the screen. A worse problem happens if the reed switch fails.
Sometimes the switches will fail in a closed position with the contacts sticking together. In that case the system will not switch on. There are several ways to check for this. First the laptop can be partially disassembled and the mouse assembly can be unplugged from the system board and the system switched on. With the speakers located on the top of the interior in this way they tend to direct the sound at you and make for a reasonably enjoyable listening experience.
The headphone jack is located on the front side … a less than ideal location for people who like to plug in external speakers but is a great location for using earbuds. Heat and Noise The runs extremely quiet even with the 2. The fan remained whisper quiet yet kept heat under control. The areas near both the memory and hard drive left palm rest did feel warm during benchmarking, but temperatures remained comfortable enough to keep the on the lap.
Temperatures are likely kept within acceptable limits thanks to a rather large heatsink visible through the vent on the left side of the Battery Battery life on the with the standard 6-cell battery was only average at best. Even with the screen brightness set to less than half, wireless on, and Vista power settings set to maximize battery life, the powered down in just above 2 hours 2 hours and 3 minutes.
