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 .....

Dell :: BIOS & Some Hardware Info

Apr 29, 2010

Just a quick question please. Been wanting to buy a laptop probably with an i5 520 processor.

Seen very good deals on Lenovo, unfortunately came to find out their BIOS is locked, and so with Sony too. Is Dell BIOS locked also, main reason is because I use virtualbox and other related software, and I need VT enabled, will this be an issue with Dell too, as with Lenovo it is (at least as per the threads on the Lenovo side, and no fix yet).

One other thing, talking about Lenovo again or even Acer, I've seen them offer a i5 520 on 14/15" laptops, then why is that I don't have an option to get an i5 520 on a Studio 15.

One last no-brainer question, sorry.. 15.6" screens have a resolution of 1366x768 (16:9) and newer 14" laptops I've seen also have the same resolution, is that also 16:9 and 720p ?

Dell :: Latitude E4200 Info

Oct 4, 2008

I have been see-sawing between the Sony Z and the E4200 (two very different machines) but being a Dell customer for the past decade, and having access to Premier and EPP, tipped the decision in favor of the the smallest E in the new Dell portfolio.

I thought I would start this thread as a 'catch all' place for all the folks who are ordering the new E4200. I have been looking for info on the E4200 in particular but there isn't much to be found though a few folks have indeed received their E4300s.

There seems to be some disappointment with the E4300. I am holding out until the backlit keyboard as well Latitude ON (hardware-based) are widely available. It does seem that some of the kinks still need to be ironed out from the lilliputian E-class Dells. Here's an early review that pretty much sums up the disappointment that some new owners are feeling:

So here is how I have read the Dell terms.

I am looking at getting a Studio 17 or a Studio XPS, both have the 12 month no payments, no interest. I was approved for 4 grand so everything will fit into my budget.

Dell :: S-XPS 1645 Throttling Info. And Updates

Dec 27, 2009

Dell has released their solution to the throttling issue, if you have updated to the latest A07 or newer bios, and recieved a 130w adapter from dell. Need to call the reps and get a 130w sent free of charge.

After more testing looks as if the A07 bios has indeed greatly improve the performance of the laptop. More testing will continue to see where the limit is at, as there may be close to the throttling edge perhaps.

Purpose of this thread is to educate those about the throttling issues with dell's laptops. Specifically to the xps 16 with i7 processors. Also to show community driven solutions as we wait for dells response to this issue.

This is an advancement from the power investigation thread, to summarize the thread here is a quick list. The 1645 is supplied and designed for a 90w adapter which is undersized and cripples the laptop under gpu + cpu stresses,

such as gaming and photo editing.Running on battery seems to let the laptop run more towards it potential.The problem severity varies and depends mostly on configuration and type of program being ran.A 130w or bigger power supply will not solve the issue alone, as the bios actively throttles to main 90w anyways.Through reps Dell seems aware of the issue. As of yet there has been no official announcement and is .....

Dell :: XPS M1210 A02 Heatsink And Go 7400 Interesting Info...

May 19, 2009

Just wanted to give this info for M1210 owners out there because I found it pretty interesting.

I recently changed my M1210's thermal assembly, new motherboard (due to failed Go7400), and the new one I obtained to replace it was a new revision, A02... the old one I removed is A00, so it seems there have been two design changes to the heatsink since my computer was assembled.



I haven't been able to identify any other differences yet, but one obvious difference is that it uses a different heatpipe .....

Dell :: E6400/E6500 Contactless Reader Anyone With More Info?

Feb 18, 2009

Has anyone out there any information on the integrated contactless reader in the E6400/E6500?

I know it's based on the Broadcom 5880 chipset, but not much else. Even Dell can't tell me much, other that it's supposed to support RFID and ISO 14443.

I'm looking at developing a RFID application to which would use the Dell reader if I can find any information.
