Dell :: AS5 Application
I got my AS5 today and the ArctiClean 1+2 stuff should be here in a few days. So I decided to check where I should be putting this stuff.
Am I supposed to remove the whole of the black square? It felt like a sticker which started to peel off. Or is it just the silver stuff which will be removed and then replaced with the AS5?
Looked like there was a bit of black stuff on the CPU as well? Also, should I place the AS5 only where the silver stuff is on the picture or shall I go wider/longer than that?
And finally, what is this blue sticky thing which goes onto a chip in the top right of the pic? Do I remove that and what is the chip for?

Apple :: Making An Application's Menubar Minimize/close With The Application
There's a little quirky behavior that's bugged me a little bit ever since I started using Snow Leopard last summer.
Whenever I minimize or close an application using either the yellow/red buttons on the application or simply hitting CMD+M / CMD+W, the menubar for that application persists, necessitating a click on whatever application behind it before that app is actually "active".
For instance, if I were to hit CMD+W on Firefox right now, iTunes would be staring me in the face, but the menubar would still be for Firefox -- and I'd have to click on iTunes before being able to play something.
Is there any config setting or some way to make the menubar minimize/close with the application I'm minimizing or closing?
Dell :: Application That Checks For Updates
Asked this question in the other thread but I thought I make a new one here.
I formated and reinstalled my e6500.
Now I saw before the reinstallation that I had a dell program that connected to their website (database) and checked if all my drivers where up to date.
Now after reinstallation I dont find this neat application any of you who know whats it called?
Apple :: Fully Maximize An Application On A Mac
I don't own a Mac, but I've used them. One of the things that has always bothered me about them is the way applications launch. Specifically, they always seem to launch in their own un-maximized window. The yellow button doesn't always fully maximize the application and one has to drag the window into full screen and even then the front row thingy blocks the window from fully maximizing.
Is there a simple way to fully maximize an application on a Mac? Is there a setting that will make it so that all apps automatically launch maximized?
Apple :: Launching An Application At Login
What is the method to automatically launch an application when the user logs in. Does it involve putting an alias of the app in some specific "startup" folder, like in Windows?
I am trying to install an older scanner driver on my new MBP, which I was only partially able to do. The "button manager" app, would not install automatically using the installer app. Hence, in order for the buttons on the scanner to work, I have to first manually launch the Button Manager. On my older MB, it would launch at login, so it was resident at all times. I none such difficulty installing the same driver package on the old MB.
I find it odd that my new MB has so many quirks that my 1 year old MB unibody does not. They are running exactly the same OS version. Hmm And Migration Assitant left a boatload of stuff (such as this), unmoved.

Apple :: MBP - AIM Wont Open - MSN Wont Open On The Actual Application
I don't know what it is with this laptop and messengers. But NOTHING wants to work. Heres a list of problems
1) AIM wont open (fixed, I had to change port number) So now AIM works on iChat and Adium
2) MSN wont open on the actual application (Mac Messenger) I want to webcam chat with people, and it just WONT start. It starts on adium since I checked the box to use http or something, but I can't webchat on adium.
When I try to open messenger, it says I am not connected to internet, which I clearly am...
I checked my routers firewall. And I am not too sure how to change things on the macs firewall. I just want to use messengers..
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 :: 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 :: 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 :: 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?

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.
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 :: 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 :: Want To Buy Battery Other Than From Dell
After getting my AC Adapter replaced and my motherboard replaced. My battery STILL won't charge. That means the only culprit left was the battery, and according to Dell, I must buy a new battery from them since my 1 year battery warranty is over. The battery from Dell is too expensive, 6 cell for 330 dollars? So where else can I buy my battery from. The store needs to have good reputation, secure, and good prices. I would like either 6-cell or 9-cell battery, and willing to pay around 70-100 dollars. The battery sold must be either new, or refurbished with full capacity.
Dell :: X64 Vista And Dell
Dell is getting their act together on the x64 bandwagon
There are x64 drivers put out by dell, just not officially.
You just have to know where to look, for example the following link
nvidia driver for x64 vista on m1530, not on their support site for m1530, yet it is available.
A11 bios update for m1530 to suppport 8 gb of ram, not on their support site.
if you go to their ftp site, and have time to look thru hundreds of files, you can find them.
I think when they have them all, they will put them on their support site, under x64 updates.
Dell :: Which XPS Should I Go For?
I'm going to buy an XPS 16, but just considering which specification to go for.
My current laptop is a HP 6730B with 4GB RAM with Windows 7 and its response time is pretty slow which annoys the hell out of me.
I have the habit of running multiple applications concurrently, such as Word, Outlook, MSN, Chrome, Dropbox, Skype, Photoshop, Illustrator, Dreamweaver, etc (you get the picture). But I rarely play games on my laptop, though I think I might start playing if I get an XPS (probably Diablo 3).
Anyway, I'm divided between two choices:
1. XPS 16, 15.6" WLED, i7-720QM, 6GB (2+4) RAM, 256GB SSD = NZ$3,700 (about US$2,600)
2. XPS 16, 15.6" WLED, i7-820QM, 8GM (4+4) RAM, 640GB 5400RPM SATA HDD = NZ$3,300 (about US$2,300)
So basically it comes down to lower spec CPU with SSD, or higher spec CPU with SATA drive.
I did hear about certain "flickering" issues with the XPS screens and the throttling issue, but do these problems appear with XPS 16's with WLED screens (and 90W adapter)? I'd be interested to find out.
I'm thinking maybe go for option 2, and when the prices for SSD come down buy one then? Is it possible to buy a SSD from somewhere other than Dell and install it on XPS 16 myself?
Dell :: Fan Off , Fan On, New XPS 16 I7
I just recieved my new Dell Studio XPS 16 today, after previously only and M1530.
Lovely looking laptop, however it doesn't matter whether i am using battery or plugged into the mains, the fan keeps comming on and going off every minute or so i would say. I have only had the laptop out the box for a good hour or so but the constant stop and start of the fan is really starting to get to me.
The laptop will run for a couple of minutes, fan kicks in for 1 minute off for 30 seconds, on for 1 minute , off for 30 seconsn!!
This is just happening when the computer is idle , at the very most all that is open is IE 8.0 and maybe some Windows.
I have read other people have problems with throttling , but from what i gather this would seem that the users effected are mainly if they are playing higher end games and only happens when using a 90W Power Supply, when battery is in use it is okay.
For me personaly the noise happens when it is on battery or mains powered. I need to work out what to do because i have 7 days to request a return , i may think it is because i got the I7 Chip ...
Dell :: What Is The OEM For XPS 16?
I just finished purchasing a Dell XPS 16 two hours ago over the phone. Estimated arrival time is April 8th "because it is a high end system". It has an Core i5 520 M and an RGBLED display. Looks like I will have to eat dandelions for a while, while my bank account recovers.
So I was wondering if anyone knew what the OEM for my system was and if I wentwith the OEM route of my system, would I be able to save money compared to uying from Dell?
Dell :: About RAM

Dell :: XPS Comes To An End

Dell :: C2D Or I7?
main problem is, should I get a Studio 15 with: i7, 7,2krpm disk imported from the UK (I live in Poland), or should I stick with a P8600, 5,4krpm disk config and buy it locally. Both are practically the same price..
It should be a no-brainer since the i7 config is much more powerful, but I've heard a lot of complaints that the i7 (and the GFX chip?) is overheating in the Studio 15............
Dell :: 4gb Over 2 Gb Of RAM
In the next week or so someones giving me 2 2GB sticks of RAM for my m1710 since hes getting something new so Im just wondering, is there really any significant boost? Im running XP MCE with 2GB currently, Im not expecting this huge jump or anything but do you all think Ill see improvement ..
Dell :: Where's My SSD
Just looking at the studio XPS 13/1640 and the SSD's are no longer an option.
Also, the standard color now is obsidian black high gloss finish with NO leather. The leather is now a $40 upgrade. That is strange to say the least.
What else... Oh, the 1640 now comes with a 1600 x 900 base display. That is good news but I'd imagine most ppl get RGBLED There's also a non RGB 1080p panel.
Dell :: Will You Buy Again?
After all the issues with the nVidia graphic cards, will you buy a Dell again? I know that it is not entirely Dell's fault here but so far they have not been helpful in getting my XPS 1330 fixed again.
My computer died last week although it was only casually used for Internet browsing and office applications. What I'm more frustrated about is Dell's Support (or better lack of thereof) in getting this fixed.
IMHO, Dell should replace all laptops that could be affected given they sold a faulty product. I'm surprised not to see a lawsuit against Dell in regards to that matter. Dell only provide a software patch as a solution which however isn't really a fix.
Dell :: CPU 100%
Im having a problem with my e1505/6400. Its running windows 7 pro, though the same problem used to happen when it was running xp mce. Basically after using it for a while after turn on (maybe half an hour to an hour), the CPU will goto 100% and the computer will go supppeer slow.
This will remain the case for about 5 minutes, and then the CPU usage will go back to normal, unless I end a whole bunch of tasks in the task manager and then generally I can end the bogged down period sooner. It is never one process that has high CPU usage, but instead the usages of say 10 different processes all bounce around high and low to keep it constantly at 100%. It doesn't have a virus or any spy/adware.
The only thing I can think of is maybe this could be the result of it getting too hot ? It does tend to get hot, would that make sense ? Or does this sound more like a hardware problem or something else ? I tend not to be too rubbish at troubleshooting things like this, but this time Im baffled ?
Dell :: HOw Do I Know If I Have SLI
I just got a 1730 as a warranty replacement and when I first got it I could enable the sli button in the control panel. I could also see two cards in the device manager(not sure if this was before or after I checked the sli enable box. I upgraded to the NBF drivers and some point between now and than I can't see two cards anymore and there is no check box in the nvidia control panel.
I'm thinking maybe I never did have it and when I ticked the box in the control panel it made the system think that there were two... maybe. Is there any other way to check if I have it or not? I had also installed sp3 somewhere inbetween here and there...
