so ive got a 1640xps, and it cant handle 1080p for .. im trying to watch Life E01 BluRay BBC 1080p x264 H@M i get nothing but lags/freezes this shouldnt be happening.. im using VLC to play it. nothing else is open when i play it, i have laptop set to high performance and its plugged in. all drivers are newest to my knowledge.
Thinking about getting the 14z and I know the 9400m isn't the best graphics card, but I noticed the memory is 1000mhz+ on the 14z which leads me to believe the 14z probably can handle games quite well since the 9400 uses that memory.
Can it handle Left 4 Dead or World in Conflict on medium well? Any users with experience or could tell me the frames per second they are getting would be awesome.
I really don't want to move up to the 15inch model and get the ATI 4570 which will suck up battery life and is bulkier.
Pretty much the title. I know there are 4GB single laptop ram sticks out there. If the M1330 is running a 64 bit OS (such as Vista x64 or XP x64), can I put in two 4GB sticks and will they be recognised?
My alienware computer could handle any game no problem a week ago or so but now every game i play is extremely choppy and the frame rate is around 10 on most games. Is there any reason for this or anything i can do to fix it? I've tryed restoring my computer to its factory state and i have updated everything in windows update. I have also got rid of unwanted start programs in msconfig and I have also used task manager to clear any processes that i do not need running. It also seems that my computer usage is around 80% or more when playing a game now and maybe it gets to 100% and then lags?
A key ? for me in purchasing a new machine is how to arrange 2 accessories: DVD player and a 2nd drive (primary drive would be an SSD). Â From what I understand, I cannot swap out a HDD and DVD in the ultrabay--if going with a second HDD, the HDD is permanently installed. This implies that you make the pre purchase decision to either have a HDD or DVD player connected by USB and the other in the ultrabay. Â Would one opt to have the HDD in the ultrabay due to increased data throughput vs. a USB 3x port?
Im interested in purchasing a Vaio Y notebook, but considering its processor being only 1.3ghz, and having integrated graphics, im wondering if it will perform sluggish during heavy usage. I do not do any gaming, but i do Heavy web surfing (open lots of tabs at once), and watch HD video online (Hulu, Youtube etc). Also, i convert many video files for my iPod, and download many videos, and audio through the internet as well. could anyone comment on how would this perform during these types of uses?
my finger is currently hovering over the BUY button of a great 1080p monitor at a great price. There is only ONE left in stock and I have a dilema!!! My specs are shown below.
Intel® Core™ 2 Duo Processor T8300 (2.4 GHz, 800 MHz FSB, 3 MB L2 Cache) 4096MB 667MHz Dual Channel DDR2 SDRAM [2x2048] 256MB ATI Mobility RADEON HD 3450 320GB (5.400rpm) SATA Hard Drive Genuine Windows Vista® Home Premium 64-bit Fixed Internal 8X DVD+/-RW Slot Load Drive including Software Primary 9-cell 85 WHr Lithium Ion battery 15.4" Wide Screen WXGA (1280 x 800) Display with TrueLife™
The other day I played a 720p mkv file via HDMI output to a tv, with no problems, picture/sound was fine.
I then tried 1080p output of another video file, via HDMI to the same tv. This tv has a native resolution of 1680 x 1050 and I know that this is not full HD (1080p) which is the resolution of the video I was trying to watch but if I recall the display settings on my laptop were set to 1080p... The video was unwatchable and choppy, pixelated and skipped a lot.
I then tried the same video via VGA with slightly better results, running this time at the natvie resolution of the tv (1680 x 1050). The video was less pixellated but still skipped, enough to make it unwatchable.
I have eliminated the cheap (£3.50!) HDMI cable as the VGA cable was also similar in quality.
My question is this:
Is this poor quality simply due to the fact that my GPU cannot handle pumping out 1080p via hdmi/vga output to a TV? (it plays fine on my laptop's native resolution of 1200x800, although clearly that is not 1080p so it seems that the GPU can handle it?) If the GPU cannot handle it then I am dissapointed as I assumed when purchasing a laptop with a HDMI port that I could output full HD videos to my televsion.
On the other hand if I purchase this new monitor that supports full 1080p HD will the video play ok? In other words, is it the my televison, and not my laptop that is the problem; surely the GPU works just as hard to play the video regardless of what the display output is?
I have been looking to buy a laptop for a while, and would prefer to go with an i7 model, hence I am looking at the studio 15 as Dell is the only company to have i7 laptops available in Australia. For some reason the options for inbuilt 3g and a 1600x900 screen are available on the model with the old processor but not with the i7.
The normal resolution screen will likely be too low so I am not going with that. Is 1080p on a 15" screen able to be used for word processing and general office tasks? This laptop will be an all in one - office use, multimedia and a music production laptop.
Should I go out of my way to find a 1080p 15" laptop to trial.
I actually ordered an asus (don't hate lol) g51vx-a1 with a 15.6" LED 1080p screen, since you guys seem knowledgeable I was wondering how many manufacturers of 15.6" LED 1080p screens there were and maybe comment on the quality of them.
My asus g51vx-a1 has the AUO B156HW01 v.5 WLED LCD. It has some cheap bleeding. Here are some pictures.
I'm putting my order in for an XPS 16 next week. Spec:
Intel® Core™ 2 Duo P8600(2.40Ghz, 1066MHz, 3MB) 4096MB 1067MHz Dual Channel DDR3 SDRAM 1GB ATI® Radeon™ HD 4670
320GB Free Fall Sensor (7200RPM) Hard Drive Internal DVD+/-RW (DVD & CD read and write)
However, I'm pondering the screen size. 1080p on WLED is only £10 more expensive than 720p; but I'm wondering if it's worth it. I mean, 141DPI is massive over the 97DPI on the 720p panel, but can one see such small and finer detail on a relatively small screen? .....
I have a new 1647, I did a clean install of Windows 7, updated to latest Dell BIOS for this laptop and currently I am plugged in via direct connection (battery taken out) to a 130W power adapter.
I am using VLC to playback a 1080p anime video. For the most part, video playback was smooth up until like 10 minutes ago. Laptop is noticibly warm, VLC keeps buffering. I'm assuming it's throttling .....
I hav a 3 months old Studio 1555. T6400 4GB RAM 320 HDD 256 MB ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4570 1366 x 768 LED screen.
When I had bought this laptop, 720p was the only screen available in my country but now they are providing 1080p too. Dell has agreed to upgrade screen from 720p to 1080p.
Ironically the remote diagnostics technical guy himself was only 99% sure of success, not 100%.
When the screen was changed last week, the newer screen looked too white and faded, right from the system boot up. When Vista loaded, it first showed the older 1366 x 768 resolution then automatically adjusted to the native resolution 1920 x 1080.
however the screen looked same i.e. very white, faded, not so clear and colors almost washed out. Screen was checked twice but showed same result So i had to keep the original 720p only. Technician thought that the screen was faulty so sent it back .....
I finally found where the hue and saturation setting are in the ATI ccc which nobody has been able to discover, including Dell who had already agreed to replace my screen because of the reds... gotta call them tomorrow to cancel. Am so happy with my screen now!
Anyway, I installed the latest ATI drivers from the AMD website and used the mobility modder to mod them so that they can be used correctly with the laptop vga card (although I'm sure that this option is in every version).
1) In the ccc switch to "Advanced" mode 2) At the top left where there's a menu titled "Graphics" with a small arrow next to it, choose "Desktops & Displays" 3) On the bottom left there should be a small picture of a laptop with the number "1" next to it. Right click on the picture of the laptop and choose "Configure" 4) It should now open a new screen. Just go to the middle tab "Avivo Color" and play around with the Hue and Saturation.
Here are my current settings: Avivo Color: Hue: -4 Saturation: 83
Desktop Properties (Also under the top left menu): Set color correction for: All Channels Gamma: 1.00 Brightness: -50 Contrast: 90
