Apple :: Mac Boot-up Between Windows -OSX Speed

Mar 2, 2009

I purchased a used macbook pro 2.6 a couple of weeks ago from ebay and it had a screen problem, IMO> anyway I sent it back and got a refund, I just purchased a NEW 2.66 MHz and I'm expecting it at the end of the week, I was impressed how the first mac booted up so fast with OSX so my question is if I had windows XP dual booting would it boot to the windows as fast as it did with the OSX or will the anti-virus slow it down ?

Apple :: Controlling Fan Speed In Windows

Dec 28, 2009

with a native Windows boot... has anyone found a good option for controlling the fan speed?

Right now I have to set a minimum speed in SMCfancontrol and reboot...

The only two options I know of to control fan speeds in Windows is..

Input Remapper: Never worked for me... Vista or Windows 7... it freezes and causes all kinds of problems with the machine no matter what I do.

Lubbo's Fan Control: doesn't work, just gives me and error that it can't load the IO driver. I read that it currently doesn't work right with Bootcamp 3, and to kill bootcamp.exe in order to run it... but that doesn't help either, still the same IO error and it launches and cant detect fans or temps. is there something else out there anyone has tried... or know how to get around the issues with these other two?

Dell :: Windows Xp Reinstall Problems Fixed

Nov 10, 2009

I finally fixed all my problems (kinda) I have sound, wireless card, can go stadby hibernate, ethernet device works etc etc, Don't know how I did it because I went to so many different sites and google it thousand times!!!

I've noticed that sometimes you can't get the right drivers from dell even with the service tag number, I got some drivers from dell, but not from my specific model drivers download page!

The only problem I have now is that my hotkey: fn+esc don't work, it doesn't put my computer into standby like it should, the other hotkeys work just fine, Anyone know why? I also would like to get an older version of quickset because the new version that I got now I don't like it, its 7.1.8, I've been looking for the version that came with my computer from the factory but I don't know what version is! I liked that one better.

Apple :: Superdrive Read Speed

Mar 5, 2009

I'm recently doing a lot of video editing stuff so...

I burned a video file to a CD and tried to play it off the CD to test it, but the read speed is so slow that it keeps on lagging. And when I try to copy the file back to disk (me and my paranoid testing), it also says its gonna take like 2 minutes even though its only ~160MB.

And when I'm importing a CD into iTunes, it won't go much faster than like 8x.

Is this normal? I'm plugged into the wall if that makes any difference. I ask especially because the rated read speed according to the Apple website is 24x.

Apple :: MacBook - Fan Speed Just Go Up To As High As 5k While I'm Surfing The Web

Mar 25, 2009

My MacBook has been acting weird lately. Its fan speeds just go up to as high as 5k while I'm surfing the web (Firefox), 3k on average. No embedded flash videos, etc. I've searched the net for solutions and none of them work for me. I tried checking my Activity Monitor, and the app that uses the highest CPU % is Firefox at 12% at most. I happened to see Quicksilver go up to 97% for a second then it disappeared. I tried looking for any hidden Print Jobs but I had none. I have 1 stuck process according to Terminal, but that's basically it. I have a 2.4ghz white MacBook, 10.5.6.

Apple :: MBP - Increased Fan Speed With Software Update

May 15, 2009

I recently updated my MBP with the newest patch and im getting higher cpu temps by just doing my usual web surfing and itunes. I see the cpu raise and my fans will kick on well above 2000 rpm. Before this my computer would normally be stable around 1999-2000 rpm. I can clearly tell by just typing that my mbp is runing hotter.

Apple :: Home-Made Cooling Pad With Speed Control

Feb 18, 2009

well last night and this morning i was busy making my self a home made cooling pad, with some crap laying around the house. I don't know if there is already one but i'll put this one up. I will upload pictures tomorrow. The total project was about 1 hour and cost less than $10. It also has a speed control which is cool (it is built on my ac/dc adapter so you will make yours). My mother-tongue is not English but French, so excuse the words i might use or not use. Also their are some tools i couldn't translate the name, but when pics are up I'm sure you will know..................

Apple :: MacBook Pro 17" (Core I7-620M + GT330M) And RAM Speed

Apr 26, 2010

I've finally got my MacBook Pro 17" specced with Glossy screen, Core i7-620M and GeForce GT330M fully up and running!

I've been replacing the 5400RPM 500GB hard drive with a Intel X25-M 80GB Gen2, along with replaced the 2x 2GB 1066MHz RAM with a pair of nice Kingston 1600MHz @ CL7 2x 2GB ones.

is the fact that Windows7 computer rating tells me that my RAM is the slowest hardware in my machine? So I was checking it's settings, and the MacBook Pro keeps them at 1066MHz @ CL8?

Which is insane considering the potential of these Kingston memory modules!
Is there no way (as there obviously is no BIOS to deal with on Mac hardware) to somehow improve the memory settings?

Dell :: Is The XPS M1330 GPU Problem Fixed?

Mar 25, 2009

I'm deciding between Dell XPS m1330 and the Sony VAIO SR, and have been slightly leaning towards Dell! yay! However, I'm kinda worried about the GPU problem I've read about. So I was wondering if I buy the XPS m1330 in say June (I'm going USA for college then), will I have the NVidia graphics card which does not have a design flaw? And also, about the heating issue, has Dell done anything about that? Or will I have to do the copper mod thing if I buy this laptop?

Dell :: E6500 Stutter FIXED

Oct 7, 2008

My new Latitude E6500 has been suffering from a "stuttering" problem. The symptoms:
1. When watching videos on the web (, for example), the video and audio would stutter and pause, with "breaks" occuring multiple times a second.

2. When moving windows around the desktop, they would jerk along rather than gliding smoothly.

3. Most windows and programs would open slowly (for example, opening the control panel would take several seconds).

4. Task manager would never settle down to 0% or even 1%, but rather bounce along at 2-7%.

I tried re-loading the OS (Windows XP SP3) from scratch. Drivers, etc. Three times. Same problem.

Things seemed to run fine without Control Point software, which I was prepared to dump--but I do like some of its features.

But I discovered that choosing a Control Point power managment scheme was the problem! The solution was to select a regular old Control Panel power managment preset (one without DELL in the name). Problem solved! Task manager now settles down to 0%, videos run smoothly, etc.

My E6500 specs:
Nvidai 160M
260 GB HD

Sony :: GT 330M Throttled Can It Be Fixed

Mar 9, 2010

I've just got a Sony VAIO CW2 with a GT 330M GPU and have read that the chip is throttled from the default settings.

The source is a review at, translated with Google Translate.

According to the GT 330M should run at a speed that is higher than what is reported by CPU-Z:

Core Speed: 575 MHz vs my speed of 475 MHz
Shader Speed: 1265 MHz vs my speed of 1045 MHz
Memory Speed: 1066 MHz vs my speed of 680 MHz

Dell :: Artifacting, Not Fixed After 5 Repairs And A Week With

Nov 17, 2007

So about 3-4 weeks ago now I had to have my 7900GS replaced due to artifacting problems, and this ended up being a problem that was not fixed even after 3 repairs and replacements of the GPU itself, motherboard and screen, all got replaced about 3 or 4 times.

I rang up Dell for the 4th time, and asked to have a replacement but was told this was not possible until it gets to the stage where they need to take it in to the workshop. Anyway, the next day the technician came out and replaced the motherboard, GPU and screen again, and the problem was still there. I was sure that this would be fixed now, because they wanted to take it in to the workshop, which they did.

Now, I believe the problem has resurfaced, I was playing Crysis tonight and I had some more artifacting, the same type that I was getting before but, just in smaller areas instead of the whole screen. Here are some screenshots of the issue:

Screenshot 1
Screenshot 2

This has been happening on and off tonight, room temperature has been cool and I didn't notice any overheating.

Now I haven't noticed this within the last hour or so of playing, and goes away if I alt-tab then get back in game. The only other game I have been playing is Counter-Strike Source and I haven't noticed any artifacting in that, but that could be because it's nowhere near as graphically demanding.

I'm worried that the problem will keep coming back and possibly get worse, I have not overclocked nor plan to overclock and keep my machine in a very well ventilated area. This is not user error.

Using official Dell video drivers, was reformatted just week as well.

Do you think it's worth ringing Dell about this and try getting a replacement?

Dell :: Have Bios Changes Fixed Problem With XPS M1330

HP/Compaq :: Envy 15 Fixed Multiplier (x7) On Battery

Dec 23, 2009

My Envy has the i7-720QM processor. I noticed significant reduced performance when running on battery.

RealTemp, Sandra, i7Turbo, Intel turbo boost monitor, cpuid, etc.. all report the multiplier at 7 (~930MHz), and won't move from there no matter what I do on the machine.

The multiplier seems locked/fixed at 7 regardless of load. As soon as it is unplugged it dives to 7.

I've changed the power plan to high performance and set min/max power management to 100%. This made no difference.

Is the BIOS forcing this? I believe 7 is the low frequency multiplier but shouldn't this kick in only is there is no activity (to save power?). If I am doing work, I expect the processor to at least run at the minimum frequency specified.

This behavior has been confirmed now by other members of the forum. Previos BIOS releases (F.05 and F.06) have been tested and showed the same issue.

I attached two screenshots, one the system running on power, and the other one on battery. Both running prime95 small FFTs.

Sony :: Windows 7 Beta 7000 On A Zbrightness- In Speed Mode

I can't seem to change the brightness level in Speed Mode, be it through Fn keys or Power Option on the laptop. I've tried disabling UAC and running VESMgr.exe and VESMgrSub.exe as administrators. And still can't alter the brightness level. Everything else works, just the brightness option won't work in Speed Mode. Stamina Mode works flawlessly, giving me the option the change the brightness level how I want.

HP Pavilion G6 2241sa Networking :: Internet Speed Went Down After Installing Windows 8.1

Apr 3, 2013

I've installed Windows 8.1 on my laptop HP Pavilion G6 2241sa. Everything is perfect, I downloaded all drivers, internet works fine BUT I've noticed that the speed of my broadband after few minutes goes down by 80%. My broadband speed is 30meg down/30 megs up. Download speed reduces to 2-3megs but upload speed remains the same... 
My network card (shown in device manager) is Qualcom Atheros AR9485 802.11b/g/n wifi adapter. When I uninstall it, Windows automatically detects it and installs it back. Internet speed returns to normal but after few minutes or maybe 10-12 minutes speed again goes down, up speed is unchanged... I deleted it 10 times, all the same, tried to reinstall all ralink drivers found for Win 8 or Win8.1, but Windows says that I have the perfect driver and doesn't install anything else. I removed antivirus just in case, doesn't work. I checked the speed on other computer - no issues there, but on my laptop it persists. On Windows 7 i didn't have this problem, it started after putting Win 8.1.

Dell :: Inspiron 9300. Bad Temperature Can Mobo Be Fixed

Oct 21, 2007

I have an Inspiron 9300 that recently started having 100% CPU usage all of the time. After a lot of wild goose chases, the reason turns out to be that 3 out of 4 of its temperature sensors (CPU, Video, and soDimm) think that it is 255 degrees C inside the unit.

Error Code 3900-0626
Msg: Temperature Sensor out of range, temp=255C, min=10C, max=100C

As a result, the CPU steps down to preserve itself. I get perhaps 250MHz core speed rather than the 1.6 GHz the unit is rated for.

In any event, all other hardware diagnostics are fine, the machine runs ok (though very slow), and is otherwise healthy.

The Dell guys say that I need a new Motherboard, but I was wondering the following?

1) Whether the thermistors can be replaced by a shop that does motherboard repair
2) If getting an XPS Gen 2 mobo is worth a try. Would I still have to get new batteries, bios, etc if I planned to keep my existing graphics card? Can I do it without spending too much more money now that I would have to spend anyway on a stock mobo?

Sony :: Vaio SZ440ARGH! Speed Mode Brightness Controls In Windows 7 (x64)

Nov 9, 2009

just can't seem to get my Brightness controls to work in speed mode in windows 7.

I've tried 169.09, 180.70 and the most recent forceware drivers.

I've installed the registry file that was recommended in one thread.
I've tried all kinds of orders. Still, nothing.

I've currently installed (in this order)
Shared Library
SonyUtils DLL
Event Service
The Registry Patch
NVIDIA Drivers

They work fine in STAMINA, but not in SPEED. I can't even access them through Windows Mobility Center or Power Options. I can change them a very small amount though the NVIDIA control panel through the "adjust color settings" tab. Otherwise, theres no mobility options in the NVIDIA panel.

Dell Inspiron 5720 :: Wireless Network Speed Is Slower Than Maximum In Windows 7

I have a Dell Inspirion 5520 that has Intel(R) Centrino(R) Wireless-N 2230 built in.Also I have a TP link TL-WR740N wireless router.I have an 80Mbps/25MBps internet connection.My Speedtest result with no router:When I connect all these via an Ethernet cable, I get the maximum even through the router:But when I try to do the same with WiFi I get 30/20 Maximum speed, and I'm sitting next to router!I have this configuration:*router:* -

Channel: auto - Mode: 11n only - Channel width: 40Mhz - Max Tx rate: 150Mbps - Enabled Wireless Router Radio - Enabled SSID Broadcast - Security: WPA- AES - Beacon Interval : 100 - RTS Threshold: 2346 - Fragmentation Threshold: 2346 - DTIM Interval: 1 - Enabled WMM - Enabled Short GI *Intel(R) Centrino(R) Wireless-N 2230:* - 802.11n Channel width for band 2.4 : Auto - 802.11n Mode: enabled - Ad Hoc Channel 802.11b/g: 1 - Ad Hoc QoS Mode: WMM enabled - Bluetooth(R) AMP: Enabled - Fat Channel Intolerant: Disabled - Mixed Mode Protection: CTS-to-self Enabled- Roaming Aggressiveness: 3. Medium- Transit power: 5. Highest- Wireless Mode: 802.11b/gI

do get the fact that speed through wireless is slower than with wire, but losing 50Mbps is a bit too much!
