Dell :: BIG M4400: Full System Lockup

Oct 20, 2008

I know a few people are experiencing this, not sure if it's the same with the E series, but the entire M4400 will fully lock up and die, requiring a hardboot. As in, a super-freeze: lights, keyboard, mouse, applications, display, everything. No chance to remove the freeze besides doing a hardboot. I've left it on for hours after the freeze, and still no luck.

This is a ridiculous problem. Imagine typing pages of documents, presentations, creating image files, working on CAD files and then it freezes completely. No ctrl+alt+del to save you here, no "quick-save".

Why is this happening? I've had 3-4 lockups every 10 minutes at a time. Using Dell memory, and default Dell hardware.

Weird situation: It has -never- locked up while watching episodes of fresh prince of bel-air on, and has -never- locked up while playing half-life 2 for four hours straight...this is worse than a defective GPU. More like a defective motherboard here...

Dell :: Reinstall Operating System On Brand New ?

Apr 10, 2009

From what I have read I am under the impression that new Dell systems often are delivered with many unnecessary programs that use system resources and slow down the computer.

I will be receiving a new Latitude E6400 with Vista Ultimate in the next few days and I am unsure whether or not I should reinstall the operating system or leave it as is.

Acer :: Full System Backup, Do They Include OS

Nov 15, 2009

If I create a backup, Is the OS backed up?

Or It justs backs up the files that I've installed and my documents and stuff?

I have a Acer Aspire 2920, and I'd like to back up my Vista Home Premium incase that I need it back because I want to install Ubuntu 9.10 on it.

Ubuntu is great for documents and internet since I dont want anything else in the way like viruses and malware or other bugs and worms.

And yes, my Vista Home Premium is LICENSED.

So, What do I need to do to back up my OS?

Sony :: After Servic, Unable To Reinstall System With Recovery Discs

Dell Vostro 3450 :: Can't Reinstall Drivers After OS Reinstall

Feb 3, 2013

My Dell Vostro 3450 (windows 7) had been running slowly for a while and after a virus scan didn't work, I decided to reinstall my operating system. I used the OS reinstall disk that came with the computer and that seemed to work pretty well. However, when it came time to install the drivers, I hit a roadblock. I put in the drivers disk and tried to go through the list of what drivers to install first (DSS, then chipset, etc...) but each time I installed something, it didn't seem to do anything-- I would go through the whole process for each one, but the little check mark wouldn't appear next to it in the "My System" list.... See below:

My computer can't connect to the internet either by ethernet or wifi, and can only input info through the cd drive.

Acer Aspire 4752 :: Complete Operating System Setup Process Before Doing System Recovery

Sep 17, 2014

Came to a point when I should completely restore the OS on my Acer Aspire 4752. Neither through Alt+F10 nor through eRecovery am I able to get around a Notice with the following "please complete operating system setup process before doing system recovery". There is only one option of this notice, that is to ok it and then the current Windows 7 Home Premium OS starts and I am not able to get out of this viscous circle. The OS works and is completely set up, so I do not understand what am I prompted to do. I see a number of postings out there, but no solution. Local Acer does not seem to know anything about the problem nor it's existence.

On my Pavilion dv6, a file (mobogenie/nengenie.dll) belonging to the Windows 7 system has been blocked by the anti virus/malware programn due to malware infection of this file.

Do I have to recover Windows 7 or have clean up of my hard disc, and how?

Dell :: Full HD Studio 15

Jul 12, 2009

I bought the studio 15 with full HD screen and blu-ray, I have read about some people saying at full 1080 resolution, the writing is wayyyyy too small.

Is this true, and is there no way to decrease the resolution.

I thought if I am getting blu-ray I might as well get full HD screen but I don't want to get my laptop and find that the writing is tiny, and I have to use a magnifying glass to do anything.

Dell :: Fan At Full Speed When Gaming

Mar 17, 2009

Since I recently upgraded to BIOS A12, my XPS 1530 fan goes at full speed when gaming, even if the temps don't go too high...

If I pause the game and go do something else for 1-2 hours, the fan will be at full speed those 1-2 hours... it is better to quit the game instead of just pausing in those cases?

Dell :: XPS 1330 Harddrive Nearly Full

Apr 29, 2009

This is my first post here and am new to this site.

Yesterday my XPS 1330 arrived with a 128 GB SSD. I was very impressed with startup, quietness, etc. I moved files from an external harddrive with pics and audio (totaled to 40 GB).

I then went to view the drive and saw that I had 12GB left...not even a day that I own a new laptop and my machine is nearly full. My old HP laptop still has 50GB left.

I removed the pics and that gave me 40GB left.

18.5GB is dedicated to "Dell DataSafe Local Backup..." I have no idea why this is so huge

Dell :: Connecting M1530 To Full Hd Tv

Jan 3, 2010

i have recently purchased an lg 42 inch lh3000 full hd 1080p tv to connect to my xps m1530.

i have also just downloaded the newest driver for my 8600gt.
i have linked the two with a vga cable and my problem is that i cant get it to output 1920x1080 resolution even though other people seem to be saying it is possible.

in the nvidia control panel the highest resolution i can get the laptop screen to show is 1440x900 (the native screen resolution) and with the tv plugged in the highest it will take is this same resolution.

Dell :: Reinstall X-Fi MB

Sep 30, 2009

Well I need to format my XPS 16.. Any idea where I get the X-Fi MB suite to redownload? I called tech support and they kept insisting it's included with the IDT drivers and had no real clue what it was. Then they said to download it on the driver page... Well you can't as it's not a driver. They have the X-Fi mb listed, but it's only for the patch.

Dell :: Its Lagging When I Play A Full HD Video

Jul 29, 2009

I tried a 720p video and it worked perfect as I expected but when I downloaded a Full HD 1080p video, playing using VLC It lags so bad, I can barely keep up and watch it properly.

My system is:
P8600 2400 MHz, RGBLED 1080.
4GB DDR3, ATi HD 3670.

If any more info needed please say.

Could someone try this file (Messi goal in UCL Final ) and see if it lags as well.

also tell me what your specs are.

maybe Im expecting too much from this SXPS 1640?

But I hoped it can playback a full HD video fine.

Dell :: HDMI Output Not Full Screen

Feb 20, 2009

I have a studio xps 16 and whenever I plug it via HDMI to my tv (which has a 1080p resolution) there are black bars all around the image, meaning the image is smaller than the tv. I've set the resolution of the tv (from Catalyst Control Center) to 1920x1080 and it still won't do full screen...

Dell :: Windows Full Version Or Refund

Oct 30, 2009

I currently have a 1645 on order and assuming I ever get it, I want to run Linux as the primary OS.

I would like to run vmware workstation with windows as a client. The reason behind this is that I primarily use the computer for work and need linux, but I need windows for a few things.

I understand that these days Dell simply ships a re-install disk if that much. I need a full version of windows to setup vmware. Does anyone know if the dell key can be used with a full version disk to do an install .....

Dell :: Giving Me A Full Refund On XPS M1730

Jan 21, 2010

Originally they called yesterday and offered me a replacement for an M17X but they would only give me 85% of the original ourchase price of the XPS.

I configured the M17X on the DELL website and also called the Sales department to clarify I could have Bu Ray reader and Dual ATI's added because these options are not on the web configurator. I was told I could add these options.

This morning a tech support representative called and we went through the configuration. He could not get the price to match what I had been quoted from the Sales department.

Dell :: SVCHost Eating 50% (or A Full Core) Of CPU

Apr 6, 2009

I have troubles with svchost eating 50% (or a full core) of CPU. I can see that two services depending on this svchost instances are plugandplay and DCOM. With another tool (Process explorer) I could find that back thoses services were sometimes bluetoothstack, windows synchro, or just nothing.

Troubles happened after I upgraded two drivers from Dell website: Webcam and GeForce. I have now the latest instances from Dell.

Grafic driver seems quite old to me (11/2008). Any advice against using the nVidia driver (from nvidia website)?
