Dell :: Faster Memory Is Cheaper So I Need To Make Sure On Compatibility

Oct 21, 2007

memory compatibility.

My notebook requires (or originally came with) 2 x 256 MB 533 MHZ DDR2 SODIMM Memory Module, but now I want to upgrade to DDR2 2GB (2x1GB) PC2-5300 (667MHz). This memory seems to be cheaper than the memory that is required for my computer so that is why I'd rather purchase it. I know the notebook will not allow the memory to run at that speed, but I wanted to double check on its compatibility.

I know it probably will work (90% sure), but getting a second opinion before a purchase is always better than after.

Dell :: D430.. Will Faster Memory

Oct 15, 2009

if a lower lat memory module will help in a D430? Normaly I think it would but seeing that you can't upgrade the 1G of onboard memory, I wonder if it would help at all?

And lastly, does anyone know if you can swap in a LED screen from a newer E4200 into a D420/430?

Acer :: Memory Compatibility For EMachines E730?

Dec 12, 2014

I purchased some more RAM (4GB stick) for an eMachines E730 laptop but it blue screens when this RAM is inserted.  It has an existing 2GB Ram Stick, but leaving that in or taking that out yields the same result when I add the new RAM.  It boots fine when the new RAM is not installed, so it is obviously not compatible. 

 It is running v1.19 BIOS, I could update to v1.23 if it is a way to fix this issue but the info on that version shows nothing about memory fix.  I am always loathe to doing a BIOS Flash unless it is absolutely needed.

I have also tried to do an update via the software update utility but it is not loading anything.

Dell :: Adding Memory To D630 Does 1 Dimm Or 2 Make A Difference?

Jan 20, 2010

I recently picked up a used d630. It currently has two 512 dimms in it. Do I need 2gb or 4gb? I know Windows XP won't use all 4gb.

If I do upgrade to just 2gb. Should I use 2x1gb or just get 1x2b and leave the other 512 dimm in there for now??

Dell :: Received My Studio XPS 16, But Now It's $150 Cheaper!

Mar 4, 2009

So I ordered my XPS1640 about 2-3 weeks ago. Arrived at my house on Monday. Later that day I go onto Dell's website, and see my exact same laptop on sale for $150 less than what I paid.

The only difference is lack of McAfee and a smaller HDD. So I customized it the same as mine, with McAfee and the larger HDD and I still would've saved $60-70.

Do I have a legitimate beef here? Should I call and complain, and will they do anything for me anyways?

Sony :: Why Are CTO Machines Significantly Cheaper

Sep 18, 2009

After buying and receiving a ready-to-ship FW490 (to match my MacBook Pro), I noticed that if I configured the exact same machine it was $181 cheaper... Sony Style won't price match the machine either, saying I have to return mine and re-order it as CTO to get the difference. I think the $181 is probably not worth the hassle but I feel a bit ripped off here... Am I being unreasonable?

Dell :: Will Me Studio 17 Run Better And Faster With Windows 7 64-bit?

Oct 21, 2009

I am almost hesitant to even bother with installing Windows 7 because #1. I use "tethering" to my Sprint 3G cell phone to use broadband data everywhere, not sure if that will work in W7.

Also should I do an "in place installation" over top of Vista 64-bit to Windows 7 64-bit.

or do a complete reformat install to Windows 7 which I imagine would be a driver hassle.

CPU wise I think I am covered a dual core T9400 2.53Ghz with 6MB cache and 1066Mhz FSB. 4GB RAM.

Dell :: Studio 15 Faster Processor?

May 6, 2010

I'm not a gamer, I am looking for a reliable, fast laptop mainly for web surfing, but also will be doing a bit of Photoshoping or watching the occasional movie. I'm told memory is the key to a fast system.

On the Dell website, I built a Dell Studio 15 which includes 8GB Shared Dual Channel DDR3 at 1066MHz and an Intel Core i5-430M 2.26GHz (2.53GHz Turbo Mode, 3M cache).

The price just went down an additional $100 so I'm definitely going to purchase today. Now I'm flirting with the idea of going with the i5-520M 2.40GHz (2.93Ghz Turbo Mode, 3M cache) for $75 since I'm saving some money.

I'm just wondering if it may be overkill for what I'll be using it for. Also concerned that the bigger processor may drain the battery more .....

Dell :: Whats Faster 120GB SSD Or Raid ZERO

Oct 27, 2008

Picked up a great deal on a 1730 with a 128SSD and 320 2nd drive - Does anyone know if the 120 will be faster than if I were to go with 2 7200 rpm drives? The price difference for the SSD is "UP THERE" so I at least want to know if its as fast as a conventional 2 hard drive raid zero approach.

Also does anyone have any links to spec's for the Dell 128SSD? Is it the Memoright 128GB.

Price is pretty nasty for the upgrade but id do it if it was way better.

How is heat and noise with the SSD? How much faster is the SSD in games and other normal apps?

Acer :: How Do I Know That My New Processor Is Faster

Jun 4, 2009

I installed a T7500 cpu in my Aspire 5315, properties states that it is a T7500 cpu running at 789 MHZ, 2.2 dual cpu processor and 1.99 GB of ram. So far all I have been using my laptop is email and surfing. it seems to take the same time booting up and maybe opening and closing a program a little faster but I wonder is it really faster ?

Are there ways to test this processor to verify that it is faster against known specs for the previous cpu, the Celeron 530 processor ?

HP/Compaq :: Would A Netbook Be Faster Than What I Have Now

Sep 29, 2009

I have an old DV6565us Pavilion. It runs EXTREMELY slow. I did a clean reinstall, but it is still pretty darn slow.

OS NameMicrosoft Windows Vista Home Premium
Version6.0.6001 Service Pack 1 Build 6001
System Model HP Pavilion dv6500 Notebook PC
ProcessorIntel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU T5250 @ 1.50GHz
Memory 2GB
HDD 160GB
Video Intel X3100

I'm looking to replace it with a netbook or another 15.4" widescreen notebook. I mainly use it for office productivity (powerpoint, word), internet, and some multimedia (hulu, etc).

This current notebook does it's job. But its pretty slow once I start to open up a number of applications. I can trade this notebook for cash ($250). Not sure if this is a good deal or not... But anyway...

HP/Compaq :: Dv6500t - What RAM Configuration Is Better/faster

Feb 11, 2010

My HP dv6500t doesn't return from standby and/or randomly crashes when I have my 2x2GB 800MHz OCZ RAM installed. I'm not sure if it's the size (4GB) or speed (800MHz) that is the issue, but it's something, so I need to make a change.

Which of the following RAM configurations would be better/faster? I don't get errors configured with them.

1x2GB 800MHz (single channel)

2x1GB 667Mhz (dual channel)

Dell :: Memory Speed Affecting Windows Experience (memory Operations)

Oct 13, 2008

A friend just showed me his new Dell Vostro lappy. He has 4 GB of DDR2 800mhz memory on it when compared to my 4 GB of DDR2 667mhz memory on my XPS 1530

However, under his windows experience score - he gets 5.9 score for memory operations while I just get a 5.1. I can't believe that a couple of hundred mhz can result in such a drastic difference.

Is there something optimized for his system but not for mine?

Acer :: Making Aspire 6920g Faster

Jul 26, 2009

i have an acer aspire 6920g with following hardware:

-intel core 2 duo t8100 (2.1 GHz, 800MHz FSB, 3mb L2 cache)
-nvidioa geforce 9500m gs
- 4 GB DDR2 Ram

anyway when watching videos on youtube with people playing games on the same laptop i found out that my laptop is slower than the ones other poeple have? i already tried to clean it with those air bottles but my laptop is still slower than the ones on youtube is there anyway to make my laptop faste without overclocking it because i dont wanna loose my warranty. another question i have is because of changing hardware i read some hreads about changing cpus most people recommended a core 2 duo t9300 but would it be a bis increase in my cause? when looking on alternate i saw that they have a t9600 for the same price so i wondered whether i could use that one as welll even though it has a fsb of 1066 instead of my 800 that im using right now another one i saw was the p8600 (its said penryn-3m i dont know what that means) but it also has a fsb of 1066

another thing is changing the graphic card first i have a question where i can buy graphic cards for laptops and then i read in a thread that the highest i can get is a 9650m gs because i only have a mxm II slot in my pc but on notebookcheck.com it says that the 9650 needs a mxm III slot. and the i have a question whether i could could use one of the new graphic cards from the geforce gtx 2000 serie

and finaly i have the question what else i could change to make my pc faster like
ram or hard drive or soo

Apple :: 13" Macbook Pro - Upgrade To The Faster Processor
