    Hi, As I said before, my M1330 is going to be 2 years old. Still only 2 problems: 1. faultu memory card (remplaced by dell). And now a faulty LCD, (I bought one waiting the travel to my home). Still no CPZU, GPU, motherboard problems. Anyway I made the CopperMOD.

    Who have the lucky to not need to be changing parts every time, etc...???

    Aww, your not going to get banned for this thread! :)

    I'm sure you will soon see others posting with information on their 1330's...(I had the 1530 w/faulty, faulty GPU's)..returned/replaced w/a 16xx.

    My brother's GPU got replaced. I then did the copper mod for him, it's been running nice and cool ever since.

    I had a non-nVidia M1330 (just X3100 graphics) that ran like a top until it was stolen. Bastiches.

    Had my M1330 over two years now.
    Like many....had the MB replaced with faulty GPU.
    I have replaced my slot DVD drive for $49 as if used alot will fail for sure.

    Have upgraded the Hard Drive from 200GB 7200rpm to 500GB 7200rpm.

    I clean the fan regularly; use a quality laptop cooler so the keyboard is no more than warm at the hottest and all has been well.

    Use an external Blu-Ray drive that is amazingly faster than the poor quality slot DVD drives for laptops. (Here smaller is not so good.)

    I also use a voltage-switching UPS. Unconditioned power counts for many laptop deaths.

    Quality power into your laptop means a quality-longer life.

    Good Luck:cool:

    NICE. As I said, mine will have now 2 years in August. If the PC last 5 years in total I will be happy with that. Really that seems that the M1330 Issues is a bad GPU and crap cooling, with copper mod you see the temps drop a lot! that is a example of crappy blue pad cooling. For GPU Dell only need to replace with newer non-faulty GPU. IF DELL MAKE THAT M1330 WILL BE HARD SOLID LAPTOP. Instead they take out the PC from the market.

    BlackRussian where you get the black keyboard? and facial recognition???

    thankyou, I saw it on ebay, looks nice, maybe bought one :D.

    Anyone knows about the last fingerprint sensor version??? Or Dell have it? Because I dont have the program since I installed Windows 7. This method is better than password.

    Anyone use the keyboard plastic protector? seems cheap.

    I think that it was at good price because it is a program but $400 for a program??? Is a lot of money for face recognition or is ok???
