I decided not to mess around with replacements and asked Dell to arrange a collection/refund of my Vostro 1400. I then ordered a new Vostro 1400, with higher specs on March 21st, I figure it'll be better to start over. Checking today, the status has now jumped to preparation for delivery, which I find amazing
Anyway, my question is how can I find out which screen it has been built with? Looking through the forum, the recommended way is to log into your Dell account --- Support ---- My System & Peripherals.
For my 'old' dell the description is simply V1400 14.1" WXGA+ (1440 X 900) TRUELIFE
The new one is so new, that the service tag is not available to check online. However the packing slip is available, and that also states V1400 14.1" WXGA+ (1440 X 900) TRUELIFE.
It seems like a generic description, so no way to check the manufacturer? I’m in the UK, (if that makes any difference)
I will do that as soon as I can, i noticed it can take a day or so for the service tag to become active online. But I have been through the exact same process for the Vostro 1400 which I have ready for collection/refund (which was only delivered on March 22th). On that one the description was simply
V1400 14.1" WXGA+ (1440 X 900) TRUELIFE
Therefore I'm assuming it will be the same for this one. I know its dangerous to assume, but it seem reasonable. I'm hoping I will be able to check online tomorrow. What I was getting at, is if there is another method to check.
