Dell :: M1530 Vista 64 Internal Mic Problem

Jan 19, 2009

Just installed Skype and have spent the last hour trying to get the internal mic to work and failed.
It's a Vista 64 install and I've installed the latest sigmatel drivers for Vista 64 from the Dell website. Appears to have installed fine.
I can see the microphone array and sigmatel codec under sound options, and the speakers are working fine, however the mic just refuses to work (sound recorder, skype etc all don't work)

Dell :: XPS M1530: How To Upgrade Vista Premium To Vista Business + HD Change

Jan 11, 2009

Firstly I apologize if this has been asked earlier, but I couldn't find an answer to my question. I have a 1530 on order. The OS will be Vista Premium x86. There are 2 things I need to do-

1. Upgrade the HD from a 5400 to a 7200, I have the HD.

2. Install Windows Vista Business - I have an original retail version, and I absolutely need this.

I have the Vista Business Retail DVD. What I want to do is have Windows and the dell partitions configured exactly as they came with the original computer, only with Vista Business, and on the new hard disk. I don't want to alter Media Direct, or delete the restoration partition. Everything should be the same except the Windows Versio

Dell :: Vista X64 On M1530

Oct 17, 2008

I currently have an M1530 with the specs listed in my signature. My question being, would it be faster to have x64 bit Vista on my computer over the x32 I have right now for everyday applications and stability? I web browse, do some audio editing, listen to music, manage cameras and other devices, and download and watch TV shows etc. Would I notice a speed improvement over x32 besides the obvious "fresh install" feeling? I also should mention that I do some moderate gaming on the computer, CS:Source and BF2 mainly.

Dell :: M1530 Support More Than 4gb RAM On Vista (or 7) 64?

May 9, 2009

I was wondering in you could stick more than 4gb into the M1530 if you have a 64-bit OS installed (Vista or 7)? Mine is more than a year old, but I've noticed that you can now configure the M1530 with up to 8gb.

Dell :: Re-install Vista On M1530

Sep 17, 2009

Due to technical problems, I'm having my motherboard replaced by a technician tomorrow.

There used to be a topic on this forum about some sort of "special" installation of Vista on the M1530 (one driver was loaded during setup). Does this still apply to the new driver versions?

Dell :: Need Vista 64 Bit OEM Disc/iso For XPS M1530

Nov 10, 2009

Alright, my XPS M1530 which I got 1.5 years ago came with Vista Home Premium 32bit. I want to install 64 bit and I only recently found out that Dell will send you out a 64 bit disc at no cost if you have the 32 bit version of the same edition.

I asked them but since my warranty is over they can't help me.

I've looked for torrents but I can't find any for a 64 bit Dell OEM Vista Home Premium iso. All I can find are 32 bit ones..

Dell :: M1530 And Vista 64 Bits

Sep 27, 2008

I have a XPS M1530 and I installed different versions of Vista 64 bits on it (Ultimate & home premium)...

when the system in running on a 64 bits OS it's verry slow...

When I'm browsing the internet is slow... Scrolling isn't fluently...

When it plays an alert sound it's like: "bbr ooo nnnn ggg"

Which driver could cause this?

My XPS crashes with viruses so I want to restore my Vista to factory

But I have partitioned my HDD so I couldn't wake up my DELL Restore utility. My partitions are: C: for OS, D: for Data and a RECOVERY(E: ) partition that exists before.

Dell :: XPS M1530 Vists 32bit Or Vista 64 Bit

Jan 31, 2009

I have always ran 32bit operating systems and i am having some blue screen issues with the win7 beta so i was thinking of going back to vista but thinking of the 64 bit version. What will happen with programs that are 32bit? I use photoshop cs4 daily as well as some other cs4 suite apps (illustrator, indesign, dreamweaver) as well as programs like VLC, winamp, firefox, MS office, and some games as old as quake 3 and new games.

My question is will they work and what advantages and disadvantages do i gain from vista64 over vista32? and do i need to get a whole new set of drivers as well for my M1530?

Dell :: XPS M1530 Vista Standby Problem

Oct 11, 2009

I have a Dell XPS M1530 Laptop (T8300, 3gb, 8600M GT, wifi-n, dual-boot Vista+XP, ...), and 4 times out of 5 , when I want to put the PC in StandBy mode, it reboots.

Obviously, it gives me the " Windows did not shut down properly ; Start in Safe Mode/ Safe with Network" etc etc screen, and you can understand I find this pretty annoying. It also does so when I put it in hibernation mode.

It does so only with Vista, and it never did with XP. I just reformatted (the Vista partition) and installed + updated every Vista component and it still does it.

At first I thought it might have had a link in applications being open and me standing the computer by, but figured that even with the fewest apps running, it still does it 4 out of 5 times.

Dell :: XPS M1530 With 32bit Vista And 4gb RAMWill It Work ?

Jan 2, 2009

Last week I ordered a XPS laptop from Dell with 4gb Ram. I had read that the full 4gb would not be available as the sipplied Vista would only be 32bit ?

When I was on the Dell site configuring my purchase it wouldn't allow me to upgrade to the 64bit Vista although the option was there.

When I selected the 64bit option I just kept getting a box saying there were compatibility issues with the Resource DVD .....

Dell :: XPS M1530... Dual Booting Vista And Windows 7

May 26, 2009

I want to dual boot the new Win 7 RC with the default Windows Vista OS already on the M1530.

My issues lie in not being able to make a 5th partition on the HDD for Win7 to go onto. Is there any way to keep my computer intact the it is and get Win7 on the HDD?

Before I deleted the Media Direct Partition but thats a horrible idea... just wondering if it would be possible without keeping another 2.5" HDD around just to have Win 7 sit on.

Feb 19, 2010

I'm currently thinking about installing windows 7 64bit instead of vista 32bit, which I am running atm.

Partly to get use of all 4gb and partly cause I've heard good stuff about windows 7, at least compared to vista, which is utter *beeep*.

My questions is now - where do I find compatible drivers for windows 7 64 bit.
My laptop is as the thread name reveals a Dell xps m1530.

Dell :: Studio Internal 14z Bluetooth

Jan 8, 2010

Is it possible to add internal bluetooth to the 14z after the fact? If so, what is the part needed to do this? While we're at it, what about wireless N?

Backstory - Ordered my laptop early December, took delivery mid December. I'm thrilled with the product except for the fact that it doesn't have bluetooth. I thought I had chosen that option, but upon looking at my invoice it appears I didn't. I went back through the customize engine on Dell's website and interestingly enough, I don't see anywhere you can choose bluetooth. Searched their parts website with no luck. Searched Google with no luck. So I tried to email Dell customer service. 3 weeks later, they finally told me to email/call tech support. So I called tech support yesterday. They told me that the wireless and bluetooth internal options are integrated onto the motherboard and have to be specified at the time of order. The only solution she could give me was to return the laptop and re-order it. The problem I voiced with that was that there isn't any way to specify bluetooth (or wireless N for that matter) on the customize page on Dell's website. Of course, she said she couldn't help with that and I needed to go back to customer service. Obviously, I was pretty irate (no cussing though! I kept my cool, but made it obvious I was upset) and she gave me a line that CS's lines were down and I needed to call them back in an hour.

So before I call CS, I'd like to try to get some more information. If you guys can help, I'd really appreciate it. Otherwise, I'm about ready to tell them to send a call tag send this thing back simply based on how terrible their after the sale service has been.

Dell :: Internal Speakers Not Working

Mar 6, 2009

New thread to satisfy people. I don't know why it makes a difference whether a thread is new or old.

I have a Dell E1505 running XP. The headphone jack works but the internal computer speakers do not. Here's what I know:

(1) it's not the speakers. I've swapped an identical set of working speakers.
(2) it doesn't appear to be a software or driver problem. My settings look identical to those of another E1505, and I have tried re-installing drivers several times.
