Dell :: Studio 1735 & Win 7 Drivers Needed

Oct 21, 2009

i'd like to install Windows 7 on my Studio 1735.

Questions are:

- Do i have to install the, quite old, Dell Notebook System Software driver?

- Do i have to install the (Vista) Chipset drivers from the Dell Download page or can i download the newer ones from Intel.com? If yes to the latter, which one do i need?

- What about the ATI HD 3650 Video drivers, should i use the , old, ones'from the Dell Download page or can i find newer ones from ATI?

- can i just use the drivers delivered with Win 7 only and use Windows update for some uninstalled devices?

Unfortunately, Dell only provides Vista drivers, there will be no Win7 for the 1735.

What are your experiences on installing Win7 on a Studio 17(35), by the way?

Dell :: Advice Needed On Whether To Return Studio XPS 1640

May 28, 2009

I recently took advantage of a 20% off coupon for computers from the Dell Outlet.

I ordered a Studio XPS 1640 that included a 128GB solid state hard drive.

Shortly after the computer arrived I started having weird problems. At first I thought it was because I had installed the Windows 7 RC, but eventually I tried re-installing Vista and the same problems were happening (in other words, I spent a lot of time on this). I began to suspect a hard drive problem.

Finally, I called Dell support and while I was on the phone (for over an hour) the hard drive failed. OK...that was Monday and she sent me a replacement hard drive that arrived yesterday.

I installed the new hard drive and the first thing I did was go into the BIOS and it recognized the hard drive, so all was good so far. Next I went into the diagnostic and it came up with a hard drive error. I called Dell and after trying some diagnostics and re-seating the hard drive it was clear that the hard drive wasn't working - it was no longer even showing up in the BIOS .....

HP/Compaq :: Are Quicklauch And Quicktouch Even Needed After Clean Install

Aug 8, 2009

I have been running my dv6700t notebook with clean install and without installing HP quicklaunch and quicktouch for almost a yr now. My blue buttons (volume, mute, media play back) are working just fine even without these installed (I have not installed quickplay, so I dont need buttons for quickplay to be working anyway). I dont care about display or sound feedback that comes up while increasing volume. So is there any other reason for these to be installed?

Only thing that I wish from these would be if they would let me increase/decrease volume quicker using blue vol. buttons. Right now it takes about 14 seconds to go from zero volume to full volume or viceversa if I constantly keep touching blue-lit vol. buttons. I like how my friends dv4t's volume zips to full from zero when he touches the same buttons. Is there any current version of these softwares that would let me do that on my dv6700t?

HP Envy 15 OS/Software :: Important Action Needed Message

Jan 9, 2014

I keep getting a message to update to 8.1 and when I entered my product number it said HP doesn't even recognize this computer. I am not too tech savvy, and this I got this for xmas and I am constantly getting the red mark. I have the HP ENVY 15 Notebook, I have no CD ROM so there is no CD resource or reinstall any of my installed CD programs without my backup.

HP TS 15-j040us OS/Software :: Can't Download Driver Needed To Upgrade To Windows 8.1

Jul 20, 2012

I have a Touchsmart 15-j040us notebook that is now a little over a year old (now out of warranty). My laptop has been asking to upgrade to Windows 8.1 since the first week or two after I purchased the system brand new.
 
The update downloads just fine and begins the install but fails every time when it is trying to install the different devices. At that point the screen goes black, the laptop reboots and I get an error message saying that update did not work and that the system has been restored to its previous condition.
 
After working through HP tech support, including sending the laptop to them to reimage, I am still unable to perform the update, which means my laptop is incapable of running the apps and programs that HP says my laptop is ready to run.
 
I am fairly confident that the issue is the Nvidia video driver. The currently supported version (version 9.xxx) of the driver is not compatible with 8.1. HP has a driver listed that is compatible with 8.1 (version 10.xxx), but I can't download it until my laptop is running 8.1. Nvidia has posted on the site a driver that is compatible with both operating systems, but I can't seem to download and install it so that I can perform the update. How to download the driver from Nvidia so that I can perform this update?

Dell :: Too Much Cooling

Feb 5, 2009

I was thinking of making my own notebook cooler, one with a fan directly over the air intake.

I was wondering if too much air going into the intake will spoil the fan inside, kinda like the air is moving faster than the internal fan can handle.

Dell :: Best Cooling Pad For XPS 13

Jun 16, 2009

I am looking at cooling pad for my 1340. Most of them have the fan in the center (like the Belkin, with great reviews) but my laptop gets hot at the very top left above the "studioXPS" logo and power button.

To me, this means I need a 3 fan-cooler with fans at the top corners as well as the center

Dell :: Cooling The Studio XPS 16

Apr 9, 2009

I take back what I said about this not getting as hot as my 1720. It most certainly runs hotters, especially under a medium to heavy load.

What steps have those of you with a 16 started taking to reduce your temperature? Anyone done any neat heatsink mods, replaced fans, found a program to control the fans, any of that?

Happy to hear any and all input, I love the Studio XPS 16 so far but it does get mighty toasty...and for the record, the warm touchpad area doesn't really bother me, but the underside does.

Dell :: Cooling Pad- M1710

Jul 7, 2007

I want to buy a cooling pad for an XPS M1710 I just ordered but need some advice first. Some cooling pads out there blow air up to the bottom of the laptop, and others draw air from the bottom of the laptop and exhaust the hot air to the back or sides. Can somebody tell me whether the bottom of the M1710 draws cool air in, or blows hot air out? If the M1710 draws air in, then I will get a cooling pad that blows cool air to the bottom. If the bottom of the M1710 blows out hot air, then I will get a cooling pad that draws the hot air out

Dell :: Which Bios Is Best For Cooling

Jan 13, 2009

Got a m1530 and, so far, it is fantastic.

i've been keeping an eye on temps and was wondering which is the best bios for cooling.

at the moment my fans don't really kick in until the gpu reaches 70c. The moment the fan starts (not super loud like when you play games but louder than the normal hum) the temp drops back to 58ish very quickly (talking seconds). However, in my mind, it makes more sense to keep temps as stable as possible.

Without fans running (or at least without me noticing them running), my temps normally hang around high 50's low 60's on the gpu. However, if i am doing lots of stuff the temps slowly rise to high 60's before the fan turns on and brings it back to 58-63. I think if fans were on more often i could easily have temps in the low 50's pretty much all the time..

I think I have bios 13 at the mo.. that or 12. is there anyway to increase fan usage?

Dell :: I9300 Cooling

i have seen and read about cooling dock stations for the i9300 that involve removing the PCMCIA slot insert. i am curious if my notebook would benefit from leaving this slot insert out even without a cooling dock? would the extra ventilation be of any value? i am currently uninterested in buying a cooling dock.

Dell :: Latitude D630 Need A Cooling Mat/pad?

Aug 1, 2009

I've owned a D630 for about a year now and have noticed that the bottom of the laptop can get very hot. My dad owned the same model for a couple years and he had multiple hard drive failures. His hypothesis was that the computer might have been overheating and burned out the hard drive.

However, in doing a little research, I heard it's not so much that the computer overheats as it is that the metal frame conducts heat very easily. So while the outside might be hot, the inside isn't at a temperature that's damaging to the parts.

Any experiences with this? Any help would be appreciated. If overheating is a common problem, I'll probably shell out the money for a cooling mat. If it's not a problem, then that's money saved.!
