Dell :: W7 Score.......
Well I have scoured the threads and came up empty. I cant get my W7 score back up to my Vista score.
My processor calculations per second is sitting at 4.6 on W7 where it was 5.1 on Vista. Is it possible I am missing something?

Dell :: Studio 1555 W/4570 GPUlow Desktop Graphics Score But High Gaming Graphics Score From WEI
Just purchased a 1555 with the radeon 4570 512mb GPU, Windows 7 64-bit, and performance is generally very good apart from one strange result. Windows experience index reports the following -
Processor - 5.7
Memory - 5.8
Graphics - 4.9
Gaming Graphics - 6.3
hard disk - 5.9
So the only low result is the desktop aero graphics performance at 4.9, which seems strange when the 3D businnes/gaming graphics score is 6.3. Other results i've seen posted on forums of the Windows 7 WEI scores are usually the same for desktop graphics and 3D graphics in Windows 7, which I would have expected as I understood that aero uses the GPU similarly to games. If anything, it looked like in most results the desktop graphics scores were slightly higher than the gaming graphics scores.
Does anyone know why I could be getting a lot lower desktop graphics score compared to gaming graphics?
I've checked the graphics drivers are up to date.
Can anybody else post their Windows 7 WEI scores from the 1555 with the 4570 512mb GPU?
Dell :: 3DMark Score
I've never really used 3DMark, but I wanted to stress for temperature reasons and decided to see what I could get in 3DMark06. I got 14197, and I'm wondering for my setup is that good, bad or average?
I've never really relied much on 3DMark scores, it's nothing but a number to me - as long as a game even LOOKS like it's running smooth I'm happy =-P Just wondering what I should have expected outta 3DMark06 =-)
Dell :: Low 3dmark06 Score
OS: Windows 7 64 bit
Video Card: 8600m gt
Ram: 4 gigs
Notebook: Vostro 1500
3dmark06 score: 2300.
I'm pretty sure this is abnormal, what do you guys think is the issue? I tried several drivers: some 19x.xx drivers and some 18x.xx drivers, of which I'm currently using 185.85 dox. The speeds are all around 2200-2400. Default settings used in 3dmark06.

Dell :: 8600m Gt 3dmark05 Score
on 575/475 i scored 7100, on 550/450 i just played bf2142 on high settings and it ran at 60fps or so, give or take, i just installed windows xp on my 1720, it came with vista all i had to do was switch something with the hd in the bios, im using ntune to overclock. my system is a t5450 1.66,1g 667mhz ram,120gb 5400rpm hd, nvidia 8600m gt, using driver 165.01.
Dell :: 1645 A Low 3DMark Score
I just received a 1645 with i7 (720), 4GB, and ATI 4670. Ran 3dmark05 and got about 11,000 or so. However, on my previous Vostro 1720 with a Core 2 Duo 9400 and a Nvidia 9600M GS card, I had over 10,000.
Shouldn't there have been a signifigant increase given the processor and video card upgrade? Did this on a new install of Win 7 64-bit on battery power (with powersaver off)
Dell :: 3dmark Score Of 1232 On My M1530
It seems like every other person with an m1530 gets better performance than I do. Here's my specs:
Intel Core 2 Duo, T8300 2.4ghz
geforce 8600m GT, 512 mb RAM, DDR3
4 GB RAM
250 gig 7200 rpm hard drive
Windows XP sp3
I'm using the latest mobile Xtreme G drivers for overclockablility. They seem to perform better than standard nvidia drivers anyway.
My first 3dmark06 test gave me a score of 1232. This is absolutely horrible... especially compared to other m1530 systems. I overclocked to 600/825 and got a score of 3084. A lot better, but still not good. I got a dangerously high temperature at one point of 90 degrees C, though it was only for a second. It was an average of 80. I'm not going to keep my system OCed, I just wanted to see what it could do.
So why does my system have such terrible performance compared to other m1530s? Most 3dmark scores for the 8600m GT have are an average of around 4500.
Dell :: Whats Your Vista Reliablitly Score
if you right click my computer, then manage, then reliability and performance, monitoring tools, then reliability monitor (whew!) you'll see a graph that shows how "stable" vista has basically been for you. i'm just curious what everyones out there is. my last one dated 3-2-08 was 4.86 out of 10!!!! i started at 7.6. my wife has a cheapo $499 compaq with vista basic, 512 ram, not even sure of the processor, and i checked hers. in almost a year, she has never dropped below 8 points! her $499 laptop, is more stable than the $5000 plus laptop i use! the lowest i got was 4.02. i'm now slowly starting to creep back up. all sorts of different windows errors and such.
Dell :: 4gb 667mhz Shows As 4.5 In Vista Score
i own a dell Inspiron 9400 it did have 2gb 533mhz and scored 4.5 in vista. I have just upgraded to 4gb 667mhz and the score is still 4.5? The BIOS shows 4gb at 667mhz Dual, and in vista only 3.3gb of ram(know about only seeing 3.3gb in vista).
Not that im into the vista scores but is this normal or is something wrong here with my ram or laptop? As it should improve when i done this up grade.
Dell :: XPS 1530 Low Score 3dmark06 = 2042
I`ve just got XPS 1530 with 8600gt 4gb ram and ssd 128gb 3dmark gives mi 2134points? Verry odd. I am testing it through VNC remotele but I doubt that it slows it so much. BTW Ihad problems runing 3dmar06 i gave me an error about dx9. Counter Strike gives me 83 fps on stress test I added -dx9 to the shortcut of 3dmark06.exe to be able to run the test
HP/Compaq :: Terrible WEI Score On HDX16T
Scored a 3.0 on the WEI with the following scores:
Gaming Graphics: 4.9
Primary Hard Disk: 3.0
Obviously most of it looks right except the hard disk. I have the 320 GB 5400 RPM HD that came with the HDX16T. Yesterday I installed Windows 7 Beta and I tried to install all of the drivers from the HP website (except I pulled the latest Nvidia drivers straight from their site instead).
I don't recall seeing a driver for the hard disk, but windows seemed to recognize it.
Sony :: Post Your FW's Windows Experience Index Score
I was curious as to what sort of scores Windows 7 is giving to different specs of FWs.
Processor: P8700 ------>6.1
Memory: 4 GB --------->6.1
Primary Hard Disk(7200rpm 320 gb)--->5.8 (base)
I have a 490CTO with win7 home premium. I can't remember but I think that I had exactly the same score with vista, only nothing went over 5.9. The HDD score was the same. Did anybody else get a different base score after upgrading to 7?
HP/Compaq :: Drop In Vista Graphics Score And Laggy Internet
I recently used my recovery disks to go from XP back to Vista after a very dismal Xp performance. My download speed is now around 40 kb/s from HP.com (for drivers), firefox set up download 45 kb/s? Also i've noticed that video's online buffer at an alarmingly slow rate. I have Cox high speed internet and it used to be around 400-600kb/s and pretty quick buffering. What the heck happened? And why did my graphics score drop .2 points?
Dell :: Dell.ca Fewer Screen Choices Vs Dell.com
Is it normal that dell.ca would have fewer choices of screens than dell.com? I'm looking at the studio 15, and dell.com lists Hi Resolution/Bright,
glossy widescreen 15.4 WLED display (1440x900) as a choice, which is what I want, but dell.ca doesn't. When I view the system specs though, that choice is listed as on option.
Dell :: Which RAM/memory Kingston, Corsair, PNY Or Dell Certified?
I enjoy gaming, although I wouldn't consider myself a "hardcore" gamer. I currently have 1024 MB of RAM (2 x 512) and I am looking to upgrade soon. My options are as follows:
- Dell certfied RAM
- PNY RAM
- Kingston RAM
- Corsair RAM
Of course, for the Dell RAM, I have to wait for the shipping, but it is one of the cheaper ones. However, any of the other three I can pick up at Best Buy (which is more convenient). Can someone point out the pros and cons of each? It seems the PNY is a great buy, but could there be performance problems compared to the others? And why is the Kingston so expensive?

Dell :: Dell Inspiron - Monitor To Shut Off After 1 Minute Of Being Idle
when i first got my dell inspiron and it was all good. when i set the monitor to shut off after 1 minute of being idle, it did and would not turn on unless someone moved the mouse of pressed a button. however, after i reformatted, the computer monitor would shut off after 1 min but soon afterwards it turns on again by itself, then it goes off again, then it remains on permanently. i recently formatted my laptop again and this problem persists. anyone knows whats sup? im using xp ftw... and my configurations are the same as it was before the reformats so idk whats wrong.
Dell :: Sold At Wal-Mart And Best Buy Vs Dell.com
Are the Dell notebooks currently being sold in Wal-Marts and Best Buys the same quality built machines as those sold on Dell.com? I read on another discussion board that they were not.
I read that the Dell products sold in Wal-Marts and Best Buys were built and shipped out from a different manufacturing source than the Dell computer products being sold on Dell.com.
That the computer products being sold at those 2 mass retailers are not built as good as those purchased directly from Dell.com. Is there any truth to that story?
Dell :: Dell Inspiron 6000 Notebook To Boot Up
Dell Inspiron 6000 notebook to boot up and stay unfrozen long enough for me to retrieve my files, and put them on my tower pc.
In a nutshell, I got this Inspiron about 3 years ago- I currently have it connected to an external monitor, because my wife dropped a heavy object on the screen last year, and destroyed said screen.
Just this past week, I turned it on, and it started getting really slow. Finally, it got to a point where now, when I turn it on, it boots up, it goes to the desktop, the desktop icons all appear, and within a minute or two, it just kind of slows down, and eventually freezes up, and the hard drive indicator light quits doing anything. It does not respond to anything, and the only way to restart it, is to hold the power button down until it resets.
If anybody knows of a thread already on this site, regarding this problem, please point me in the right direction, as I tried the search function, and did not come up with anything.
and one or two other things, since it initially started having problems, sometimes, I will get two "missing module" error boxes pop up- and also, while it is booting, the screen flashes black for about 3 seconds, and then comes back on and continues to load.
Thank you very much to anybody who could possibly help me out of this jam. I really do not plan on using this laptop (or notebook) anymore, if and hopefully when, I get my files off of it.
And that is the other problem, I can not attempt to boot up in safe mode, as my screen is busted up, and it will not output to my external monitor, when I hit the f key while it is starting. I did make a couple different bootable cds, but they do not seem to do anything.

Dell :: Changing RAM (non-Dell Laptop)
Hey yall, I'm not a dell owner, but my friend is. I'm wondering...can you put RAM sticks from another, non-Dell laptop, into a Dell? Would this break her accidental warranty (she purchased it after accident, regular warranty is long over...)? I wonder because I have a dead laptop (HD died, screen died etc) that has 2GB of RAM in it while her laptop has a mere 512 and since I'm going to be helping her do a complete system reinstall because I virus has ravaged her files...
Dell :: Review - Inspiron Mini 10 [DELL]
I purchased this Mini to be in touch on an extended personal and business trip in Central America. Dell was exceptional in delivering the unit before I left, even though the promised delivery was after my departure. While away the Mini let me keep up with email and browse for information vital to the trip. The machine worked exactly as expected with no glitches. Bonus points for how easy it was to get the Minithrough security in American airports- an unexpected pleasure. Two of my colleagues and travelling companions were impressed - kept borrowing the Mini and will likely acquire one for travel.
Dell :: Sell On Ebay From Dell.com?
Is it possible to sell a dell i bought online from dell.com on ebay? Its brand new i didn't receive it yet. I dont need it anymore because my brother wanted something else for his birthday, but i don't want to refund it. Is it possible to sell it on ebay? Would the service tag be affected?
Dell :: Dell M1730 Failure
First off, The model
Dell m1730 - Out of warranty
Laptop is failing to boot up. The screen does not turn on/make it to BIOS. Tho, the lights come on, USB devices light up...
Things that happend up to this problem:
Very confident it's NOT virus related.
I put my laptop into hibernation for the night, in the morning, the laptop still being in hibernation, I took out my Ipod shuffle first gen. Later in the day, we expirenced a black out.
When I got home, My laptop was no longer in hibernation ( the blackout ) and thats when I noticed the problem. My AC Adapter is behind two surge protectors, so I think ( and hoping ) it's a minor hardware misshap with the Ipod.
