Dell :: I8kfan And Vista Ultimate SP2 X64

Sep 24, 2009

I have ad ell inspiron 1720 with vista ultimate x64 SP2, and I'm having problems with digital sign requirements and i8kfan(x64).

The only way I find to work with this program is disabling the requierement when I start windows hitting F8.

I tried with NHC(dell bugfix) and the same problem.
I love how simple is ik8fan, so I wish to keep working with it until a better one appears

Dell :: Upgrading To Vista Ultimate

Mar 19, 2009

I just picked up an XPS Studio 1640 with Vista Home Premium, and I'm planning to do a clean install. I think I have that figured out, but I want to upgrade to Ultimate.

Can anyone tell me if the upgrade will change anything that I have accomplished with the clean install? Will it reset my partitions or anything like that?

Dell :: Vista Ultimate 64 Bit Worth It From 32 Bit

Mar 31, 2008

Just recieved the copy I ordered from market place.

I've read that I can use the serial on my system (which is 32 bit) and it will go through, but was wondering if it's worth it to go 64 bit.

I currently have about 11 games installed on my M1730, and only thing that's stopping me is all the game saves.

Dell :: Vista Ultimate X64 SP1 Or SP2 Disk Part #

Jun 12, 2009

I have extended warranty so I called XPS support to replace it and they said no problem, but they would need the part number shipped w/ the XPS M1530 system.

If anyone has the part number from the bottom the the Dell Reinstall disk, or better yet, an SP2 disk, though I doubt they are shipping yet, I could sure use it. You can PM me or post it here..

I want to get it replaced b4 it goes out of warranty as I deleted my recovery partition...

Dell :: Vista Ultimate 32-bit Studio 1737

Dec 22, 2008

I want to blow out all my existing partitions and put Vista Ultimate
32-bit on my new Studio.

I have been trying to find threads that might help...I'm an old salt at
OS installs but these fancy new machines sometimes need drivers
for SATA or what have you during the install.

Has anyone successfully installed Vista (any version) from scratch?

Did you have driver issues? Did everything work when you were done?

I plan on putting in a different HDD and trying the install just to see
how far I can get.

Dell :: Vista Ultimate Downgrade Rights

Jun 10, 2008

My 1730 is "In Production" (whatever that means) and I specifically got one with Vista Ultimate so I could use downgrade rights to run XP for a while longer.

Anyone know how I go about exercising these downgrade rights?

I will need a CD Key to install XP Pro, how do I go about obtaining one? Is this a call to Microsoft? Dell? I don't need any media; I have several Microsoft XP OEM CD's from various systems I have built over the years and I have already downloaded all the XP drivers for the 1730 from Dell's site.

Acer :: Vista Ultimate Woes

Mar 17, 2008

since receiving my new Acer 7720-6604 (Cdn) a week ago, I am a firm believer. I cant believe it, the new Acer with 3G's of DDR2 RAM is even slower than my 5 year old Toshiba Satellite 2.8Gz Celery with 768MB of memory. It opens sites faster. It boots faster!

The only changes I have made to the new Acer so far was to uninstall the demo Nortons and have installed AVG free and SpywareBlaster. Also, I have disable Aero

I thought it might be AVG and SpywareBlaster slowing it down so tried it with both uninstalled and no change. Re-installed them

I ran across a MS suggestion using "Ready Boost" in which you utilize a 1G or larger thumbdrive to use as a cache. Possibly a very slight increase, so small I really cant say.

As the new Acer has a Geforce 8600M GT GPU and a T8100 Core 2 Duo processor, it cant be the hardware. The two drives are both WD 5400rpm so its really not them as I dont believe that 7200s would make that big a diff.

I am sorely tempted to utilize the second HDD for an XP install (just that it will be another $100 or so layout) Hoping that the SP1 will sort this garbage out.

It starts to happen and the laptop has been running for several hours. It goes away after a reboot. Its mega annoying when watching a you tube video and it keeps freezing, just for a couple seconds then it goes again. Keeps doing it throughout the video. Also when opening web pages etc. Its aggrivating as heck. Anyone else had this problem. Its not the fans or anything becasue as soon as you reboot its fine again for several hours to even days.

My problems are two-fold:Hot docking does not work. If I take my laptop out while it's running and open the screen, it is blank, and it never comes back. Pulling it out while asleep results in similar issues. The only reliable way to dock and undock is to shut down completely

Sony :: No Drivers For Vista Ultimate On VGN-CR4000

Apr 10, 2010

I just installed Vista Ultimate on the hard drive partition of my Sony Vaio Notebook (VGN-CR4000). The other partition has Vista Home and is working fine as it came with the original laptop.

I am not able to see any wireless networks to connect to the internet on the Vista Ultimate OS. This is because I do not have the drivers.. right?

I tried to find drivers on the Sony website, but there are none for my model. What can I do?

Sony :: Installing Vista Ultimate 64bit On Z-690

Apr 17, 2009

Just received my new CTO Z-690 today with vista home premium (64 bit), and to save a little on cost, bought an OEM Vista Ult 64bit separately.

Now I'd like to install vista ultimate instead and i just want to make sure i have the steps right.

1. backup/create recovery disks just in case something messes up.

2. install vista ultimate, wiping out everything

3. install drivers from sony's website

lastly, 2 questions
1) since my current drivers are for vista home premium, i will have to download new ones regardless right?

2) is there anything else that i should be doing?

Acer :: First Impressions Vista Ultimate On 7720-6604 (Cdn)

Mar 14, 2008

It runs like XP with 256MB of memory and this system has 3GB's. The HDD's on this are large WD 160's at 5400rpm, so it cant be them.

I have disable Aero and gotten rid of (uninstalled) the 90day trial Norton.

I am running AVG Free for an AV. Ultimate is a 64bit system

Just opening a new site in IE takes on the average of 15secs or so and initial start up, seems to take forever.

I have went into power management and amended the screen to never turn off and also the HDD's to never turn off.

Before I did this, it went into some sort of sleep/hibernation mode and couldnt figure out how to wake it. I tried using the "sleep mode" at Start>Sleep and it went into sleep fine but when pushing the Power button to re-awaken, I waited about 5 mins and it still didnt awake.

Sony :: Windows Vista Ultimate 32-bit Drivers On VGN-SR190

Oct 26, 2009

I own a vgn-SR190. I recently had HD failure, so had to buy new HD and reinstall vista. My original version of Vista was Business 32-bit. I didn't make a recovery disc. So I went out and bought vista ultimate 32-bit. Figured I wouldn't have problems, but I did.

I'm having the driver issues that someone in another thread talked about, when you get the problem with vaio mode switch and the battery issue. I downloaded the drivers for Vista Business, figured it would be the same for Ultimate. But I just read someone's post here that the home premium 32-bit drivers are the same as the ultimate 32-bit drivers. Is that true? if it is, I would just have to download the home premium drivers. I just wanted to know if anybody knows for a fact that the home premium drivers are the same as the ultimate drivers, seeing as the business drivers are obviously different.

Dell :: Windows 7 Upgrade Options From Vista Ultimate Pre-installed On In November?

Oct 4, 2009

I'm just looking for information / opinions on how to get the best deal for an upgrade to Windows 7 Ultimate.

I purchased my Dell Latitude E6500 direct from Dell USA Small Business on 2008-11-04, and shipped on 2008-11-21. It was pre-installed with Windows Vista Ultimate.

I've seen that systems purchased more recently (~June or July) qualify for a free upgrade from Vista to 7. I'm guessing there is nothing to qualify me for such a free upgrade, but considering that I haven't even had this system for a year yet, should there be any other upgrade discounts or specials available - either through Dell, directly from Microsoft, etc.?

Especially with the scores of users who claim that Windows 7 is really just another service pack to Vista, and with Apple offering their latest OS upgrade for a mere $29, I would certainly hope I'm not looking to pay the $219.99 as listed at http://www.microsoft.com/windows/buy/default.aspx - the same price as if I had never purchased Vista and upgraded a 7-year-old XP installation instead.

1. Is the installation by dell "bloated" with unnecessary stuff?
2. If it is, I plan to reinstall Vista with a retail Ultimate DVD my friend has bought. Can I use the serial on the backside of my computer for this installation to get a clean Home Premium installation?
3. Will I need to activate afterwards, like call MS or something...........

Dell :: 8800 GTX M1730 Malfunction Error In Vista

Aug 24, 2009

problem with my 8800 GTX in my XPS 1730...

Within Vista, both cards show up with a yellow exclamaton and a error code 43

I tried installing drivers off the dell website and then using Nvidia Reference drivers. No luck...

Re-Installed vista fresh- same problem...

Installed Windows 7 w/ Refernce Nvidia drivers - Same problem.

THEN..I installed Windows XP Pro SP3 with Dell website drivers and everything is working fine. Ran 3dmark, no crashes...

is this a software problem or hardware? Why would my 8800 work in XP but not Vista or Win 7? Has anyone heard of this problem? My 1730 is out of warranty so calling dell isnt an option.

Dell :: XPS M1730- After A Windows Update (Vista), My Screen Blacked Out And The Resolution Changed

Sep 14, 2009

Relatively soon after a Windows Update (Vista), my screen blacked out and the resolution changed from 1920x1200 to something like 800x600. After restarting the notebook, everything seemed to be back to normal, except my graphics card (GeForce 8800M GTX x 2) wasn't working, and upon looking in the device manager, it said the device wasn't working (code 43).

So, I tried uninstalling drivers/reinstalling drivers, etc. and nothing seemed to work. And now something I've done has made the main VGA drivers or whatever not work, and all I see is a big black screen on startup (but the mouse icon is on the screen and can move around).
