Dell :: Samsung SSD RBX Series 1 Considered Slow Now

Oct 31, 2009

Is the 120GB Samsung SSD that came with my M4400 considered slow by comparison to other SSDs now? I can't find any particular specs or comparisons that use this drive, but when I see other drives getting 200MB+/second, I know I'm not getting anything near that.

Also, is this a "first generation" drive that doesn't take advantage of Trim in Windows 7, etc.?

Also, I've tried searching for new drivers and firmware, but I don't see anywhere. I have Windows 7 64 on it now, and I've experienced a few BSODs, which is why I'm looking into possible driver/firmware causes. (Though I was also getting these occasionally in Vista 64.)

Lenovo ThinkPad W Series :: W530 - No Recognition Connecting To Samsung Smart TV

Jun 10, 2014

Im having issues trying to connect my computer to my smart tv.  I have a new samsung smart tv and a thinkpad w530.  I also have a 15ft mini displayport to HDMI cable (NOT converter just cable) from monoprice I just got in the mail today.  Set windows 8 up to duplicate the screen.  Neither the computer or the monitor can recognize that they are connected to something else.
 
EDIT: want to add specifically what I have tried.  I tried changing graphics mode to discrete in BIOS.  Have set up screen to duplicate, not extend or anything.  Fixed resolution of separate screens back to normal (when I set to multiple monitors it shoots me down to the lowest one).  I also checked (via the control panel) for new NVIDIA drivers.  It said i already had the latest.  Im having a hard time finding the specific driver I need for the displayport for thr w530. 
 
I think what I have tried to far will make sure it works once I get it to recognize the TV.  But it hasn't done anything to make me recognize the tv.  I want this to work very badly!

Lenovo X Series ThinkPad :: Samsung 840 Evo With X220 Gives Common 2100 Error

Jan 23, 2015

Problems with the Thinkpad X220 and my Samsung 840 Evo 256gb SSD drive. Let me give you a rundown of my past 4 months...
 
October 2014. Purchased Thinkpad X120E. 1.5ghz processor and low memory made it horrible. Put in 8gb and bought the Samsung 840 Evo 256gb SSD drive. It made the laptop much more responsive but it still sucked...so I sold it. I kept the SSD drive for my 'future' thinkpad.I did the firmware update on the SSD as it required it. It currently has the most recent firmware. When I bought the SSD drive, I plopped it in, installed windows then openSUSE and enjoyed it for a bit. Never gave me an issue at all.

January 2015: Purchased an off-lease X220 with the 2.6ghz processor. Has a 320gig 7200rpm drive in it. Put in 16GB of memory and love it.After playing with it for a bit, I did the most recent BIOS upgrade (1.39) and prepared it for the SSD install.I put in the Samsung 840 evo. Turning on the laptop it sits at thinkpad logo a lot longer then usual. After a bit it goes to the Error 2100.I went into the BIOS, HDD is not detected at all.I kept trying to boot/restart but no go. I always see that Error 2100. I can tell when it won't boot because the thinkpad logo sits for a long time and it seems that the HDD light is always on.I tried to boot with and without UEFI...no go.

I tried to boot with SATA as AHCI or compatibility, no goI put the Samsung drive into a dock and attached it to a laptop. Disk management see's the drive. I can format it and all.I put the SSD drive then into a friend’s computer tower. I formatted the drive using the Samsung software. I tried to put it back into my laptop last night, no go. Drive is not being read.My friends desktop detects the drive in his BIOS just fine...

I believe this is an issue between the BIOS and the SSD/firmware. I looked at some of the updates for SSD's and the thinkpad BIOS, they identify a small part of the model number of the samsung drive but it is not the same.

Assume an issue with the SSD cache, SSD is not visible (device manager etc,), reinstalled smartcache, smartcache doesn't find an SSD....

Lenovo P/Y/Z Series :: Y510P Slow Boot Times - 2 To 5 Minutes

Aug 4, 2014

2 customers complained of very slow boot times 2-5minutes on these machines. 
 
Removal of the Msata 24GB fixed it. I have asked them to check if express cache is installed but seems to be an ongoing problem.
 
What can lenovo do about this? Will replacement of the Msata drives fix the problem or is there a bios update coming which can remedy this.

Lenovo B / G Series :: G505s Slow CPU Speed Whilst Charging

Sep 26, 2013

This is terrible, by using CPUz i can see that, whilst the laptop is charging, the clock speed drops down to 900mhz and fluctautes between that and 1400mhz, this is shocking, i can hardly watch youtube videos or even post this thread, the lag and slowness is unbearable. When running on battery power the CPU speed shoots up to 2500mhz and stays there,it never seems to go to its turbo speed either. Whilst charging, the laptop is unusabe, i cannot do anything on it.

Lenovo ThinkPad W Series :: W540 - CPU Stuck At Slow Clock Speed

Aug 11, 2014

Had a w540 for a few days and so far it'd be fine. At the weekend i used the laptop on battery for a long time and thus set the power-management low to conserve power.

However, today having switched back to power supply and setting power scheme to max performance the CPU is still concerving power.
 
Its running (according to resource manager) at 29% and no matter how much i do it sticks at that percentage. The laptop does feel like its running at that clock speed too ... everything is super slow ... can watch programs drawing in the display...

Lenovo Z580 P/Y/Z Series :: Slow Webpage Loading With Ethernet Connection

Jul 5, 2014

I have an Ideapad Z580 with a 30mbps cable internet connection (running Win8.1). I've tested the cable modem with a number of laptops in my house, and the Ideapad is the only one that regularly times out on loading webpages.
 
What I've tried:
1. Updated Realtek Ethernet driver to newest version
2. Changed to Google Pub DNS servers (no difference from cable providers)
3. Changed power settings to High Performance (rather than balance or the battery setting)
4. Turned off IPV6 on the ethernet adapter
 
The problem seems to be random. Pages will load quickly and then suddenly they all time out (such as google and lenovo.com). When I ping both the url and the ip address they time out during these periods.
 
The problem is definitely with the laptop and not the cable connection as such. The modem does not need to be reset, as other laptops in the house load webpages normally.

And then below it shows "TRIM Command: Supported (Indeterminate Read After TRIM)"

Does this mean mine already has the trim firmware?

I will be contacting customer service. Should i be asking specifically for the samsung LED?

Dell :: E6400 + E-Port Plus + Samsung LCD + LCD

Oct 8, 2008

just got my new E6400 and I am having a problem with dual external displays. My displays are:

Samsung 204B (20", 1600x1200)
Dell 1708FP (17", 1280x1024)

The problem is the samsung only works using an analog VGA cable. If I even plug in the DVI cable, the samsung will not detect any output from the laptop/dock. I have tried installing the samsing display drivers, but that did not fix the issue. This was not a problem on my old thinkpad T41 that this new dell replaced, so although possible, I doubt the monitor has suddenly developed a bad DVI port.

If I use the Dell as the primary with the samsung hooked up using both cables, I can see two instances of the samsung, it just won't display anything until I pull the DVI cable.

My E6400 has the NVidia NVS 160 card. Running Vista 64 with the 64-bit NVidia drivers from Dell.

Dell :: Just Had My Grainy Samsung Replaced..

Jan 14, 2009

I had a 1680x1050 Glossy LCD (SEC3350). I called up and Dell, jumped through the hoops and eventually had them send me a replacement LCD. I called the tech this morning and asked him who manufacturer was, he said LG..

I was ecstatic. In my excitement forgot to check that the sticker on the LCD infact said WXGA+ across the front.

Dell replaced my WSXGA+ screen with WXGA+

The screen quality itself is really good, but there are two things I'd like clarified before I place my replacement order again.

Dell :: 128 Samsung SSD With SXPS 16 Question?

Dell :: M1730 And Samsung Monitor

Oct 9, 2008

my system spec are in the sig and its attached to a t260HD model monitor. When ever i have SLI enabled, yellowy orange colors causer my pixels to shift left and then return to their normal position a the screen refresh rate, so its like they are ion both places at the same time, just blinky for a lack of a better word. Now this does not happen on my regular laptop screen, and when i disable SLI this does not happen either, I just got new 8800m GTX SLI from dell because that was thought to be the problem but its still continues, Ive changed alot of drivers does not seems to be doing anything for me, going to try the tweakforce ones soon. I was thinking maybe my DVI cable is bad? Test that out before i test other monitors. Was just reaching out for any ideas about this problem, would just like my monitor to hands down work =/

OK quick update, now that i have new cards i put the original Dell baddy drivers on and its not doing it..but thats is very strange...why would a driver make an only SLI and only external Monitor issue......and on another note i really cant stay on this driver, i get SLI hitching issues in eq2 with it crysis runs better on single GPU mode, i need to find a driver that does not cause this....also i found a tendency for my white colors to turn yellow on my laptop monitor from drivers at the same time i would be having the tearing if i was on my large monitor, but on the stock one i can close the lid and open it again and the whites go back to the right color...

Dell :: Samsung 226BW And 1710

Feb 23, 2008

I can setup my display on my samsung 226bw so that it is the only display and that the internal lcd is turned off. It displays fine at 1680x1050.

However when I restart the laptop and get to windows the signal the laptop seems to send out is 1280x1024 (which the monitor reports). Windows still sets the desktop at 1680x1050 and the result is a desktop that is oversized for the monitor.

I can correct this by turning off the laptop, disconnecting the monitor, restarting the laptop and then reconnecting the monitor.

I can't figure out why it does this?

I have the Dell 1710 with 7900GTX and am using the NBF Mobileforce drivers v169.09 M4 drivers under xp pro.

I have also installed the drivers for the monitor as well.

Dell :: Samsung PM800 Performance Issues

I have been using this for over a month, and have about 90GB of free space. Also I have another laptop with the same 256GB SSD drive, and the WEI is 7.4. I also ran PC Mark vantage on both, and the xps1645 has half the score of what my other laptop has. Any explanations or fixes for this?

Dell :: D600 + Samsung 160GB PATA

Nov 27, 2008

That seems like a really slow place, since I have already ordered a drive last Friday off Amazon, based upon what I have read on this site:

1 of Samsung Spinpoint M Series HM160HC 160GB PATA-100 5400RPM Laptop/Notebook Hard Drive - OEM

The outstanding question, I suppose, is wondering if this drive is going to work because it exceeds 120 GB. I also read around here of a larger drive being used than what another model's BIOS supported, where it just recognized as much as it could, so that wasn't a problem (there).

It's a Latitude D600. Its a 160 GB PATA drive. I got it for $75 w/o shipping.

At the dell forums, the thread is still there, and its the only post I've put there, but they say now that my email address is not in their database?

This site is 1000 times that one for me so far.

Dell :: TRIM Support W/ Current Samsung SSD

Oct 27, 2009

So I was still confused about whether or not the SXPS Samsung SSDs would be able to accept the future firmware update (and thus be able to support TRIM). I contacted Dell's tech support via email and was told that the drives will support TRIM (though on 2 occasions he called it TRIP). I am not inspired by his lack of knowledge regarding the proper term and dont think that he is right. If I save the email would this help my case of getting a SSD from Dell in the future that does actually support TRIM?

I know that for the E6400, there is a lot of talk about screens, but it seems like there isn't for the E4200. I've read the few posts that there are regarding the two options that are available: Toshiba and Samsung.

Is there a general consensus of which one is higher quality? Does anyone have side by side comparison pictures? The information that I've read through is pretty scant in terms of not having many responses.

Dell :: Precision M4400 WXGA+ LED Screen: Samsung Vs. LG (with Pics)

after reading some post about the better display for the WXGA+ on the M4400, I could hardly belief that someone that only saw the Samsung screen claims the LG screen is the worse one. In the past the LG screen were the better ones. Even in the other notebooks of the E-Series the LGs are the better screens, so I went and searched someone with the a M4400 but a different screen manufacturer.

Lenovo T400 / T500 :: T420 Won't Boot With New Samsung 840 Pro SSD

Jan 31, 2013

I seem to have a failed brand new SSD. Before I RMA it.

-I've just used Samsung data migration to copy my C drive to a Samsung 840 Pro 128GB SSD as usual.
-I went into device driver, and set the SSD to cache writes, so the SSD was working then.
-I removed the 320GB SSD, installed the SSD and rebooted.
-After the BIOS flash screen, the system halts with a funny symbol on the screen and a flashing cursor.
-It responds to Ctrl Alt Del. but doesn't get as far as testing the DVD drive.
-After replacing the SSD with the HDD and rebooting, all is fine again ...
-The BIOS shows AHCI mode, and the SSD and contents (in a USB3 drive caddy) are visible and readable.
 
I can't use Samsung SSD magician because it won't see the SSD over USB (clever!), so can't work out how to upgrade firmware. This is an i5, 8GB, 320GB machine with 1600x900 screen, with XP Pro 64-bit.
 
What gives?? Others here have posted with working 840 Pros in a T420, so I think it's compatible. Could this be a SATA2/SATA3 thing or AHCI? I can't see any SATA2/3 control in the BIOS - does it just auto-negotiate?

firmware version is VBM19D1Q. Seems like the version that support TRIM is VBM19C1Q. Doesnt that seem like a downgrade? I've had my notebook since October 2009 so I dont think it has TRIM support from the factory.

Firmware location I think is here: http://www.samsung.com/global/busine.../business.html
