Dell :: XP On STUDIO 1557

Oct 30, 2009

Is that possible to install Windows XP sp2 on DEll Studio 1557 with Windows Vista Home Premium pre installed?

Getting the error acpi.sys on the blue screen when installing the XP.tried googling it, was told to disable acpi, but that option is not available in this bios.

heard that, we can download the sata drivers for XP and integrate them into XP bootable installation disc?? also, can we press F6 when loading XP, and insert the drivers cd of vista to install the raid drivers and resume the setup with XP?

I tried changing the AHCI to ATA.But of no use!

Dell :: Studio 1557... Hot, HOT, Don`t Burn Yourself!

Jan 29, 2010

I`ve just recived my 1557 and after 4 days of using it i can tell you this...

I HATE IT! I can`t really use it without overheating! I`m an Industrial Design student, and i use a lot PS, Solidworks, 3dMax, and various rendering engines. While using them, just after 5 o 6 minutes of rendering, the laptop overheats and turns off.

Just when it starts, core temperature rounds 73/75 degrees celcius... it reaches about 93 while rendering... and i can`t even tell when i`m gaming (i used gta san andreas for 10 minutes before ati 4570 reached 105 degrees and core about 90, then it shutted off). I`m so annoyed.... this really bothers me, in a few weeks i`ve to get back to work and university, and i have a usless "POWERFUL" machine!

I need recommendations for a new laptop, because i`m going to send thisone back next week. I don`t care if it is apple, asus, or hp, i need something wich i can really use, and i need it to be just as powerful as this (or a little less, i don`t care, as long as it really works and do de JOB).

My budget is arround 1500 US dollars.

My 1557 Specs: Core i7 720QM, 4gb DDR3 1066, 320gb 7200rpm, ATi 4570.

If any one on this forum tried this, or know the answer, I would appreciate it very much

Dell :: Is The Studio 1557 Available With A 900p Screen In The UK?

Nov 1, 2009

As per the thread title does anyone know if the Studio 1557 is available with a 900p screen in the UK? It's not listed on the site as an option but I wondered if anyone had asked them as it seems to be available to people ordering in the US.

I think I'll find the 720p screen too low res but I'm concerned that the 1080p will be too high for a 15 inch screen hence the query.

Dell :: Exclusive: APC Reviews The XPS Studio 13

all in all, APC seems to think it's a competent 13" notebook in general. however being an XPS i think people expect more from it. without a good GPU, beyond a slight difference in size and superficial cosmetic differences, what's the point if thats achievable in something slightly larger and cheaper within the Dell family or even better in the same size, out of it? never mind the initial bugs that seem to be cropping out from it.

eta: it's also funny that APC picked up on the deceptive naming of the 9500M GE. whether it's Dell's, nVidia's or a collusion of the two, most likely the latter, it was a cheap transparent gimmick. the 9500M GE in an XPS 13 is no where near the level of an actual 9500M GS card.

Dell :: Studio 1557 Copper Shim Dimensions/thickness

Jan 16, 2010

Hi, have just bought a Studio 1557 off eBay, but only after buying (not yet received) did I read various forum comments, here and elsewhere, about overheating issues (especially for the GPU, the HD 4570).

I want my laptop to last years (hopeful, aren't I!). I've read that several members have managed to put a copper shim (with thermal paste either side) between the chip and its heatsink and successfully lowered operating temps. that way, but can't find any mention of exact dimensions for the shim!

There are a couple of sellers on eBay that offer copper shims for laptop chips but they don't appear to have a stock one for the Studio 1557; they are willing to make one to measure, if I can supply dimensions, i.e. size and thickness.

I'd be grateful if anyone who's successfully fitted a copper shim to the GPU, in particular, of their Studio 1557 could post the exact dimensions, obviously including thickness, of the shim.

Dell Studio 1557 :: Memory Integrity Test Failed

Jun 22, 2012

As my Studio 1557 kept giving blue screen, I decided to run diagnostics. When both rams were installed I got  2000.0123 Memory integrity test failed. Then I uninstalled one, i got same error.I tried the one i just uninstalled on same slot, i got same error.And then i tried them both on the other slot, i didn't have any errors.

The thing is, fan has been changed 2 times, and mainboard has been changed before. I've been using this notebook with an acceptable Thermaltake cooler from the day I have bought it.  What makes this notebook like that? 7200rpm HDD? i7 processor?

Dell Studio 1557 :: White Blinking Light - Does Not Power On

Apr 4, 2013

I have a Dell Studio 1557.   When I attempt to power on the laptop nothing happens.  I can see a white blinking power light and nothing else.   There is no other signs of life, the fans do not come on and the CD-ROM cannot be used.

It seems like the AC adapater is working as I can see the blue light around the connector.

Dell Studio 1557 :: Won't Power On - No Beeps / Lights Or Sound

Apr 5, 2013

My studio 1557 recently had a motherboard failure of some type.  When I would plug in the power cord, the blue light on the cord would go off.   I noticed this after I was reading online and the laptop suddenly, without warning shut down and would not turn back on.

A Google search suggest that this came from a motherboard failure.  I replaced the motherboard.

Now, when I plug in the power cord, the blue light stays on and it is charging the battery.  The small white light above the power cord plug-in stays white while the battery is charging.   But, when pressing the power button, nothing happens.  The white charging indicator and the blue light on the power cord stay illuminated, but the laptop will do nothing else.  No beeps, no lights, no sounds.

I assume the power button has failed.  Am I assuming correctly, or is there anything else I need to check?

Dell :: Seagate Momentus 7200 Rpm HD In Studio 1557 Vibrates Laptopproven

Nov 21, 2009

I purchased a Dell Studio 15 (1557) about a month ago and as soon as I turned it on I noticed the entire bottom portion of the laptop (where the kybd and mousepad are) 'vibrated' - enough so that I called Tech Support for help. At first I thought it must be a bad fan, but after we ran through the Diagnostics and tried different fan settings, the vibration stayed. it wasnt until we put the HD to sleep temporarily that the vibration went away..

Tech Support said it was a bad drive so I had to send my laptop away for 2+ weeks (wow!). I eventually got my laptop back with a new HD installed - the exact same model - a Seagate Momentus 7200 rpm. Im not sure how the repair depot determined the laptop was fixed, because the vibration was still there.They also gave me my old HD back so I could grab any data - so I tried my old HD again to make sure there wasnt a mixup. Sure enough, both the Seagatedrives Vibrated.........................

Dell Studio 1557 :: Cannot Load OS After Original Hard Drive Failed

Feb 8, 2013

I'm trying to load a new hard drive for my Dell Studio 1557 LT due to the original failed. I've worked on many PCs and LTs before and loaded software so I know the basics and then some. Problem is, when the LT boots from the OS from an external dvd drive -Win 7 64  when it attempts a write to the hard drive at the same point in the installation every time it blue screens then reboots. I cannot capture the blue screen info due to the immediate reboot. I have tried many utilities and other hard drives but the LT wont let me write to the hd to load an OS. I tried loading a hd from another pc then install it into this LT,  same results blue screen then reboot. Very strange as if the LT wont allow a new hard drive or OS to be loaded. I've been trying to get this loaded for a week now and have tried everything. The hd was even DoD low level formatted too. Is there s Dell disk I need to get it started ?

Dell Studio 1557 :: Laptop Locked Up During Flash And Now It Doesn't Even Show BIOS Start Up

Feb 9, 2013

I should have left it alone but I've never had a bios go corrupt during update. Had A03 BIOS and attempted to update to A09.

Laptop locked up during the flash and now it doesn't even show the bios start up! I removed the BIOS battery and LT battery. Maybe I need to wait longer then 5 mins for the entire system to discharge and then try power up again. So far just a black screen! 

I just got one problem fixed with loading a new hard drive now this.

Dell :: Studio XPS 16 To Get Core I7-820QM .. What To Do?

Sep 21, 2009

http://www.gadgetfolder.com/dell-stu...processor.html

They say it's available now... But it isn't on the site yet. I know the platform is released in a couple of days, so these people probably are just a bit off.

My XPS 16 is still in the mail on it's way to me. Now I'm seriously thinking about returning it and waiting... I pulled the trigger knowing DX11 hardware was right around the corner..

But as it's a laptop and not my main gaming machine I figured it wouldn't matter much as the 4670 is still a beast and can handle all the new windows 7 features.

Dell :: New Studio 15z Core I5 Model 1569 At Best Buy

Jan 5, 2010

I just came back from Best Buy and saw the new Dell Studio 15z (1569) with the Intel Core i5! It's less than 1" thick! Slot load DVD, HDMI, displayport, 3 USB, SD Reader, and matte lid! This one was brown. The best part is the battery! It is no longer in the back like the current dell studio 15/17. It is now flat and thin like the HP Envy's!! It's now underneath the laptop!

Sorry I couldn't take pictures but they just put it out and had a HAND WRITTEN price tag with info! It has the Intel Core i5 420 I think. You really have to see how THIN and SMALL the laptop is! I hope they make a 14"!
