Were you aware that many of Dell laptops (Dell 6000 battery ) currently on the market contain some serious defects? Dell sold millions of notebooks between 2003 and 2005 that had faulty components according to documents unsealed in a case being heard in the federal court in North Carolina. The New York Times reported about the problems and allegations that Dell faced last week :.
Documents recently unsealed in a three year old lawsuit against Dell (dell xps m2010 video card) show that the company’s employees were actually aware that the computers were likely to break. Still, the employees tried to play down the problem to customers and allowed customers to rely on trouble-prone machines, putting their businesses at risk. Even the firm defending Dell in the lawsuit was affected when Dell 65w m1330 ac adapter balked at fixing 1,000 suspect computers, according to e mail messages revealed in the dispute.
According to this data, dell xps m2010 keyboard supplied faulty PCs to many of its clients including companies like Wal-Mart and Wells Fargo, institutions like the Mayo Clinic and Texas University as well as many small businesses. In 2005, Dell announced that it was taking a $300m charge to cover the cost of fixing and or replacing the faulty machines. However, to make things even worse, they replaced faulty PCs with other faulty ones, according to the NYT further findings.
Dell(Dell 1520 battery) felt victim, quite without realizing it, of one of the most fascinating pieces of industrial espionage of recent years : the theft of a formula for making the electrolyte to go into capacitors from a Japanese company, which was smuggled to China, and then onto Taiwan, but somewhere on the way things got messed up.
In 2001, an unknown scientist left Rubycon Corporation Japan to go and work for the Luminous Town Electric in China. Both companies were producing electrolytic capacitors, which are usually used in power circuits. Capacitors are found on computer motherboards, playing a crucial role in the flow of current across the hardware. At the LTE Company, the scientist made a copy of the electrolyte — the chemical that goes inside the capacitors.
Later that year, according to the NYT story, the scientist’s staff defected to Taiwan, taking with them a copy of the electrolyte formula so they could set up their own company. Taiwan supplies 30 per cent of the world’s electrolytic 1691P dell cpi battery capacitors and most of the big PC manufacturers like Dell, Hewlett-Packard, Apple get their machines assembled in Taiwan. But the defectors miscopied the formula. The end product would leak hydrogen gas, before bursting the metal body of the capacitor in up to 97 percent of the time over a three-year period. The electrolyte would then leak its brownish filling and could cause a fire.
Passive Component Industry Magazine (passive components are things like capacitors and resistors) wrote about this in September 2002, though it didn’t know then quite how bad things would get. As Dell’s experience showed, it could get very bad indeed.
A scientist steals a secret formula for an electrical product nt379 dell d620 battery from his Japanese employer and takes it to China. Then it is stolen again and turns up in Taiwan. But something goes wrong — and thousands, perhaps millions, of computers and electrical goods in the West begin to burn out or explode. It sounds like the plot of a thriller, but it’s reality. Thousands of computers have failed and nobody is sure how many more 90w pa-10 dell ac adapter products might go wrong because their capacitors — essential components to control the 65w pa-12 dell ac adapter power supply — were made with faulty materials.
Perhaps more than any other company, Dell (dell laptop battery) fought to lower the price of computers. And that’s certainly true : for years, Dell led because it could undercut rivals, and kept pushing the price down. However, nobody knows what Dell will do to survive the multibillion lawsuit and how they are planning to gain the users’ trust back.
