Has anyone tried this or even thought to try this? I want to know if besides differing capacities if there are different speeds/classes of the device that are faster than others. Is NAND flash super fast, or just USB drive fast? There's that extra internal WWAN slot that I wouldn't mind filling up with this stuff once I find out the details.
whether it's possible to install Intel Turbo Memory in the HP 8710w. I've searched through the old threads on this forum, but no one has confirmed one way or another whether Intel Turbo Memory can be fitted into the 8710w.
I have the blu-ray 5920g with bluetooth and a 8600, but no turboboost.
Not that its a massively great feature, but I'm guessing my motherboard has an empty spot where the turboost should be? and while these adapters are floating around I'd like to chuck one in there.
What is compatible withe the 5290g. I know turboboost never really took of, so was there only one type? or am I limited to the specific tuboboost adapter from another 5920g, or can I put in others?
Also how would it interact with readyboost and ram in 32bit and 64 bit OSes?
For example You can't go past 4GB of readyboost in 32 bit, even if your system ram is 1gb or 4gb, the max is always 4gb.
With 4gb of ram and 4gb of readboost will you still be able to use a further 2gb of turbooost in a 32 bit OS? Or are readyboost and turboost seen as the same as far as the OS is concerned, thus you will eiether have to use 2gb of readboosy and 2gb of turboost or 4gb of readyboost and no turboboost.
I upgraded my daughters Inspiron 1520 to Windows 8 and everything works well. The only problem we are having is the memory card reader does not work. Windows 8 recognizes it and shows the action center flag and advises us to install a new driver.. We install the driver R188776.exe, install it, and re-boot, but the memory card reader still doesn't work.. Is there another driver we can install?
So I just got my replacement XPS M1640, and luckily enough, the WWAN card slot can be used also for my 1GB 1st gen Turbo Memory card from my M1530. However, upon installing the latest drivers from Intel's website, the Turbo Memory Console indicates that only ReadyDrive is enabled, and that ReadyBoost is disabled. Is there any way to fix this? I know that Turbo Memory is always finicky, as I've dealt with it on my m1530 (but both have been enabled), so when on the 1640 I click the check box to enable it, then restart, it is still disabled, even if I wait 10 minutes in the hopes that it enables after a few minutes of logging in... ?
My HP Envy 15-3040nr has an Intel i7-2670QM processor, which works with Turbo Boost just fine. My laptop goes to a maximum of 3.0 GHz when under full load (I render heavy gameplay videos), and underclocks just fine when in energy saver mode.
However, I want to know if it is possible to LOCK the processor's clock rate at a consistently high rate, say, something like 2.9 (or an unrealistic 3.1 GHz, the rated turbo high) GHz, assuming that heat is not an issue (yes, it obviously will be an issue, but let's just say it isn't).
In my dell latitude d500,i am having intel 82852 graphics card and when i see report tab says me Maximum graphics memory is 64mb but memory in use only 5 or 7mb.Can someone help me to solve this problem because i can't play Counter-Strike on steam which is a game that released in 2000.
I believe that graphics memory in use is the problem that i can't play this game without having 60fps(i am having 15-30).
I just bought 2x2GB (DDR2 667MHz) of memory for my VGN-C1Z laptop (unfortunately I did not check before if 2X2GB was supported). Now, as far as I understood the Intel 945PM should support this, but the laptop in itself was said to be 2GB limited.
Using Windows XPPsp3 with those 2X2GB success to boot but at the end I got black screen (I see the Windows logo and progression bar, it stops displaying some sec before the startup sound), then I success to remotely connect to the laptop through VNC, here I can see that Windows is reporting 3GB which looks "normal", and under driver tab I can see in system area a warning under the line "Mobile Interl(R) 945GM/PM/GMS/940GML and Intel 945GT Express PCI Express Root Port - 27A1" saying "This device cannot find enough free ressource to work properly (Code 12). If you want to use it you need to unactivate one of the other system device" [message was in French, this is my translation], the version of the pilote is 22.214.171.1245. I'm using BIOS version R0035J4, in the BIOS only 3GB are reported. Running Everest I saw that PAE is supported and activated, and the memory is detected, you can see here the Everest report: [url]
If I boot with 1x2GB it's ok (so the mem slot works ok against 2GB). If I boot with 1x2GB + 1x512Mo, it's ok too, so It's above the 2GB limit announced.
I tried to change the video driver, and also switch to VGA with same black screen of course.
So... what can I do next to try to have 2x2GB working (even if only 3GB are available) ? Does it looks a driver/Windows issue ?
Recently my fan has been making a lot of noise whenever it starts up.
Sometimes it sounds like it's getting caught on something as it spins and it trips for a few seconds. Other times it makes a high pitched, not particularly loud but noticeable, noise,
or it'll sound like it's blowing out a lot of air, usually more then it really is. It's also made a sort clicking sound before, similar to the noises a processor on a normal computer might make when loading or booting or something, but I know it's for sure coming from the fan
First of all I wanna say that I'm a new member on this site. I've checked it out a few times and it seems that people get good help and tips so I decided to register too.
Anyway I bought an inspiron 1520 right about 2 years ago. It's my first laptop and I havent had any troubles with it whatsoever and it's been surving me great.
However 2 years of wear and tear have taken its toll on the outside plastic cover of the computer. One of the corners is cracked (the one to the right of the volume and play/pause buttons) the metal part is a bit bent but it's nothing serious .......
A month after getting my new toshiba (insignature) and letting my sister being to use my old laptop because her 9 year old system decided to fail at life.. the computer decides to fail completely.
I have no idea what the issue is... The laptop will turn on, and turn on I mean the power light will come on for a second or two.. and then the light with go back out and the computer is completely off
I have an Inspiron 1520 with a GeForce 8600M GT graphics card. I spilled some coke on it some time ago, and had to replace the keyboard, and also the media buttons don't work really well, so I purchased a new palmrest.
My problem is, that the TV-Out doesn't work anymore... although...it does work, in the way that I can figure out some image on the TV, but it's all black&white and flickering. Also, when Windows boots up, I can't see the "Welcome" screen, it's just black,
and suddenly the desktop appears with all the loading apps. It's 100% TV-Out related, because I recently reinstalled Windows, and it went just fine until I tried again the tv-out (which still did not work).
I'm having some problems with my charger. When I plug it in and turn the laptop on it says that it couldn't recognize the charger and won't charge, the laptop itself works, however. Sometimes it does charge, but rarely. I'm in a little hurry and didn't search thru the forum. Apologize if this issue was answered before.
I just uploaded this video of my problem, you should be able to stream it, if anyone has any problems then let me know. And sorry for the quality, I only have a camera phone to hand, you should be able to see what happens anyway...hopefully
Basically what happens is, I press the power on button of my machine, everything appears to be normal, the power LED turns on, the Hard drive activity LED flickers on and the DVD drive "clicks" (im sure some Dell owners know what I mean by this) BUT then all the lights go out (besides the power) and nothing is shown on my screen, no BIOS loading, nothing.
Does anyone know what might cause this?
I tried yesterday to get it to work but after about 7 hours I just gave up, nothing I did changed anything (I thought the CPU/GPU may of come unattached from the motherboard but after reseating them the problem was still there
After installing XP media center on my inspiron 1520 i am unable to get it to recognize usb devices. I looked in the device manger at the drivers and it is missing some for the usb. I am not sure which one to download. I tried installing some and they did not work. I went to dell's site and did not find anything.
can't see a thing on the screen. He left the laptop on hibernate for around 3 hours and when he came back, the screen was very dark.
He says he's restarted several times since then and the only thing which seemed to "light up" the screen was taking the power out; allowing the laptop to run on battery. However, just 5 minutes ago, even though the laptop was on battery, the screen has gone dark. He can barely make out MSN conversations by shining his lamp onto the screen but he can't see the mouse cursor.
My Dell Insipiron 1520 (lappy) with a DVD-RW combo has started to make a weird 'high pitched 'chuggy' sound whenever I turn on the laptop or when I eject or put in a disc.
Also when it starts to read something and when you tell it to write. The last time I checked, I can still read DVD game discs but trying burn a DVD just doesn't work. It doesn't think that anything's in there.
I've had this laptop for about 7 months now and it's progressively running hotter and hotter while I game. I now have the back of the laptop propped up with some books so that there's more air circulation underneath it, but even so I will often hit 96 degrees Celsius when playing games such as Call of Duty 4, Crysis, Farcry, and World of Warcraft.
I will admit that I force clock the cpu to maintain a core clock of 1.60 GHz. If I don't force clock it it will just drop my cpu clock down to 800 MHz and sit there giving me 10 fps and lower in any game. My video card (8600m gt) runs fine and cool so there's no problems there .....
