Apple :: MacBook - Configurations

Mar 16, 2009

looking at the configurations of MacBooks offered on Apple's site -- specifically, the aluminum models. The two offered on the linked page differ in terms of processor (2.0 vs 2.4 GHz Core 2 Duo) ---- do you think she'd be well-advised to take one over the other?

I'm not sure that the $250 price tag is worth the increase (and yes, I know the default HD goes up to 250 gigs on the 2.4 ghz model, and that model also has the backlit keyboard).

just planning on using the computer for basic computing stuff --- internet, word processing, the occasional presentation that incorporates video clips. She doesn't have any immediate plans to do any video editing or anything else that's super intensive (I assume the basic 2 Gigs of RAM would be sufficient for this as well -- correct?).

Sony :: I5 Z: Customized Configurations Outside Of Style, Is Only Signature Collection 1080p, How Often Does Refresh?

Feb 22, 2010

Been having mini wars in my mind pitting HP Envy 15 vs MacBook Pro vs Sony Z. Right now Sony Z's got the edge and my interest, and so these questions:

1. I'm interested in getting the Z with the 512GB SSD. Is ordering this configuration only possible via Sony's site?

At first I thought that to be the case, but then I saw in the several hundred page Sony Z thread, links to Jr.com and Amazon.com where they have the Z on sale in various configurations, but no 512GB SSD .....

Dell :: I 9400 Sanity Check

May 14, 2009

I have a 2 year old inspiron 9400 with alternating vertical bars (black and green vertical dashes) on boot up screens and black screen with windows.

It has the infamous go 7900 gs video card I've read about here and everywhere. I've reloaded the latest (A03) video drivers and have the latest (A09) bios on the machine.

I have checked the card for dust bunnies (actually removed it for a good look and to check connections) and other than removing a bit of dust the heat sink fins were open.

Video side fan turns on in the lower 70's
degrees C and off in the upper 50's/C. I don't get any errors when I run the diagnostics (f12). It boots up in safe mode and VGA mode if I disable the graphics adapter while in safe mode.

That's how I'm using it now is in VGA mode. From what I read here I've joined the many many people who have had problems with the 7900 gs card in the inspiron.

Dell :: Check Your Headphones Jacks

Sep 21, 2008

I got a system exchange for my inspiron 1520 that had clicking/popping noises anytime audio was played, and my new m1530 has the exact same issue. (What I hear is a clicking/popping right before audio is played, and right after it stops for all my audio players. This also happens when it is paused.) I am wondering if this is just bad luck or if this is some mass hardware issue. So I pose the question, do you guys get clicking/popping on your 1520/1530's?

How to reproduce clicking/popping:

1) Plug in headphones

2)Turn volume down to less than 15% of the max volume (any higher and you risk ear damage)

3) Close media players, etc (not just pause, close them).

4) To try to standardize the tests, try running sounds directly from windows:
Right click the speaker icon in your tray, hit sounds. Select one of the sounds and try using the test button. The most noticeable clicking/popping are at the bottom under "windows speech recognition" as the pop at the end is about 1/2 second delayed on some of them. Device connect, device disconnect, and the logon/logoff sounds are also very noticeable.

What is odd for me is that each sound has different clicks/pops, and that they are consistent for each one. I also don't think its my headphones either, as I have three pairs (One Sennheiser, one creative, one sony) and they each produce the same clicking/popping pattern for each sound.

HP/Compaq :: Check To See If My 8530w Has Bluetooth

Sep 7, 2009

I just picked up an 8530w open box item. It's a great laptop, build is really nice, haven't had any of the issues other people have mentioned. But I can't seem to get the bluetooth going. When I ordered it, the description had this to say:

Wireless details:

Intel WiFi Link 5300 (802.11 a/b/g/n draft 2.0)

HP Integrated Module with Bluetooth Wireless Technology

I thought that meant that bluetooth would be installed. I did a fresh install of windows xp right when I got it, and then reinstalled all the drivers. I even tried to install the HP Integrated Module driver from the web but it during and after installation it said it could find no bluetooth bits installed. How do I know if it's in there somewhere? Should it be with a description like above? Here's a link to the full description:

Apple :: LESS HDD Space After RAM Upgrade Or HW Check

Jun 17, 2009

there is something I am not able to understand. After I upgraded RAM to 4Gb (from 2Gb) with original Apple RAM. I ran an H/W check (the short and the long one) at next boot and everything was OK (NFF). In spite of this I noted that there were 2Gb less on my HDD and I do not really understand why. Do you have any idea on the reason of this event?

Was it because of the H/W check? Or something odd after RAM upgrade?

why this happened (if you got an idea) and what I could do in order to recover these 2GB (I have plenty of space now but I would prefer to have 2Gb of photos / mp3 instead of stolen space).

Dell :: S 1555 With 4500MHD Graphics, Can Check Your Peak Temps For CPU, GPU

Aug 19, 2009

My studio 1555 with Radeon 4570 graphics starts the fan very often, when the GPU temp reaches 51C and stops when it hits 44C. It only takes 3-5 minutes to go from 44C to 51C and thats with me doing NOTHING on the computer. So I'm seriously thinking about going to a non-Radeon Studio 1555 as i like the laptop overall.

I just wanted to know for the 4500MHD owners, does your fan go off even if the laptop is just sitting there idle doing nothing at all? If you can download the program i8kfangui to monitor your CPU, GPU, and Chipset temps. I'd appreciate it if you could just turn the reply back with your Peak temps for the CPU, GPU, and chipset. (if you don't see them displayed go to Options -> Status Reading tab -> check the three boxes for the above items. Please click on Reset Peak Values then let your laptop sit idle for 10-20min.

Acer :: 5672 To Check Internal Speakers

Feb 3, 2009

My speakers stopped working after I dropped the laptop on the front edge (yes clever).

Curious thing is there is a red LED glowing from inside the ear phone socket that I never noticed before. It looks really cool. Anyways I get sound out of the ear phones but not the speaker.

I tried inserting and jiggling the ear phone jack to see if there speakers were somehow deactivated by means of the earphones. No luck.

My next step is to open up the laptop too see what I can find.

I'm wondering has anyone delved into a 5672 (or similar) that could guide me to what to expect.

Mainly I don't want to remove the cover if it means I bollox up the whole thing.

Sony :: How Can I Check If My Notebook Supports SATAII

Sep 30, 2009

I'm thinking about changing my HDD, since it's a 4200rpm 200GB.

I was thinking about getting a Samsung SATAII 7200rpm( storage doesn't matter that much, I already own an external device, as long as it's not less than my current HDD ).

But I was told that my Vaio model, VGN FZ140E, doesn't support SATAII. So I'd have to choose a SATA 5400rpm HDD.

I'd like to ask you how can I check it this is true. If so, would changing my HDD be a noticeable upgrade?

Also, among these brands, which one would you choose( for better performance, low noise, low energy comsumption etc. ): Samsung, WD or Seagate?

HP/Compaq :: Battery- 8510p AfterBattery Check

Aug 9, 2009

I need a new battery for my 8510p. Something very odd happened. I noticed that my battery has seemed to not last for very long these days. I saw HP's battery check software on their site and downloaded it. At the time I started the check, the battery was at 93%. The software determined that the battery needs to be replaced. The odd thing is that after I took the laptop off of the dock to check it's wireless connection, the battery charge plummeted (within a couple of minutes) to 11%, where it has remained ever since and refuses to charge beyond that. It's almost as though the software pushed it over the edge somehow.

Apple :: MBP - Way To Run A Check Up On Hard Drive And Software

Apr 2, 2009

I recently had some problems with my MBP...

Quote:

I have the 17 inch MacBook pro...just got it yesterday.

Right now, it will not boot passed the white screen with the apple logo.

I inserted the OSX CD and booted from the CD by holding C... now I guess I'm installing OSX onto the HD again to see what happens.

This problem occurred after my thumb drive was acting up. When I put in the thumb drive, and then start transferring files into the thumb drive... the little progress window would freeze up. I could not force quit, as you can't force quit "Finder" for whatever reason. So I had to do a restart by holding down the power key. Again, same thing happened and I had to do the power key reset...

Dell :: Where Do I Find THE Best Coupons

Oct 24, 2008

I really like the Dell Studio 17 I have, but it is defective in the sense of the screen scratched and the drive scratches discs. If I call Dell, like last time, they will send me a replacement Studio 17, but it will be refurbished or not new. I don't like that.

What websites feature the BEST Dell coupons to bring the Dell Studio 17 price down? I got mine fully featured for about $1,340 on Dell's 30% off sale. I miss that sale because Dell doesn't do coupons for the Studio line of laptops, only Inspiron and XPS. They have offers, but when I spec out each offer, it comes to about the same amount which is higher.

I DO NOT want to deal with Dell on the phone, that's for sure. Last time I did that, they were very confused putting my Dell order together and price and spec'ed it wrong.

I also want top specs but for the 30% or more off price liek before because an outdated chipset in the Studio 15/17 is NOT worth over $1,600+.
