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 U/S Series :: U410 Not Displaying On 2nd Monitor (Samsung S24D390HL)

Sep 8, 2014

I purchased an external monitor recently so I can extend my Lenovo U410 IdeaPad's display. The monitor connects to my laptop via an HDMI cable. The problem is, nothing from my laptop is displayed on the external monitor.
 
The external monitor is still left with a black screeen with either the HDMI and Analog symbol flickering back and forth on the top left corner, or a box that shows "Check Signal Cable" with red, green, and blue boxes below. 
 
On Control Panel>Appearance and Personalization>Display>Screen Resolution, I can see that the external monitor is detected: I have the external monitor as Display 2, and I have "Multiple displays:" set at "Extend these displays"I know that the monitor is not broken, because it works as an external monitor for my MAC (via HDMI cable as well) ....

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.

Dell Inspiron 15 :: 5000 Series - Slow Performance / CPU Stuck At 0.75ghz

Aug 23, 2014

I've recently purchased an Inspiron 15 5000 series and have noticed that performance is unusually slow for the specs, especially since coming from an Asus G73JH that was about 4 years old.

I've noticed that in the Task Manager on Windows 8, that CPU usage never goes above 30% and although the CPU is listed as an i7-4510u @ 2.00ghz, the Speed on the Task Manager page generally sits at 0.75ghz and never goes above 0.79ghz (generally when it goes above 0.75ghz, it for a brief moment).

I've been Googling this problem for a little while now and the only person I've found with a successful solution to this problem was on a desktop and had to replace their CMOS battery. Considering I'm on a laptop, I'd imagine this would void my warranty somewhat ....

I've run the Dell Support program and all the tests pass. I've also installed all the drivers from the Dell site (including the BIOS update) and all my Windows Updates are up to date.

Lenovo P/Y/Z Series :: Y530 Upgraded To 8gb Ram - Slow Response And CPU Is At 100%

Aug 4, 2011

I just upgraded my Y530 from 2GB*2 to 4GB*2 PC3 10666. BIOS recognizes the rams. From vista 64 startup it is extremely slow. I was able to log on, after half an hour and CPU is at 100% all the time and the computer fails to respond to mouse clicks or keyboard. An hour after this I was desperate trying to turn it off and pressed hand held the power key. Now it's corrupted my user profile. I know how to fix that but everything runs in slow motion 1:100 and I can't do anything. I tried to log on with admin and the video driver keeps crashing that I was almost not clicking fast enough to close those error dialogs and yes it's just as slow otherwise. Safe mode works fine. Win vista 64 reports 8gb in safe mode. I searched for a while and found that I might need new bios so where do I get it? All lenovo has are drivers. There was one request a while back for bios but there's no update on it.
 
My bios version is 10CN41WW (223)...

Lenovo P/Y/Z Series :: Z510 Slow Windows 8.1 Booting

Jul 12, 2014

I bought lenovo z510 recently and liked its performance. But from last few days am facing issue when windows 8.1 boots .ie., when i power on my laptop i see "lenovo log" for more than 15 minutes and sometimes windows doesnt start at all. I have to restart few times manually with power button to see the windows screen.
 
Initially i thought it is due to windows update, but even after I turned off update, am facing same issue. My laptop is hardly a month old and it is very frustrating to see this happening .

Jan 27, 2014

Took delivery of my brand new y510p yesterday and the last 24 hours have been hell.The PC is incredibly slow, much slower than my three year old XPS 15 from dell.

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.

Lenovo P/Y/Z Series :: Slow Charging After Battery Reaches About 80 Percent Or So - Y510p

Oct 31, 2013

I was just wondering what the average time was for a totally dead y510p to charge while using it for some light browsing on the internet. It seems to charge really slow especially after it reaches about 80 percent or so. I was curious to see what other owners have had in terms of charge time. I seem to have narrowed it down to about 5 percent every 10 minutes while my cousins HP charges way faster. Not too upset about it but a bit curious. For example as I am typing this out it's been at 99% for the past 20 minutes or so, and HW monitor shows it charging really slowly but when its at like 50 percent it charges at a decent rate maybe about 10 mwh every 5 seconds or so.

Lenovo X220 X Series ThinkPad :: Very Slow Reconnecting To WiFi When Resuming From Sleep

Mar 20, 2011

So my X220 with the Intel 6205 card is having issues reconnecting to WiFi when resuming from sleep or hibernation. It takes about a minute for it to do so, though occasionally it will reconnect right away. Maybe 1 out of 20. When doing a cold boot or restart, it connects immediately upon the desktop showing up.
 
This was not always the case, in fact when I first got my X220 in June, I have not had this issue.... In fact, I don't know when it started happening, but it was maybe a couple months ago. I just thought it was my old router going bad. Well I got a new router, and it still happens. I have the latest Intel WiFi drivers from Lenovo, and I even tried downgrading to the previous driver from Intel's site. Still the same problem. I tried setting a default profile in access connections, and that does not work. In fact, it behaves the same way if I totally uninstall access connections as well. In fact I tried this on three different brand routers, and I can reproduce it on all of them (Asus, Netgear & TP-Link) so I think this is not a router issue. Other devices in the house reconnect right away with no issues (iPhone 4, PS3, Mac desktop, Dell laptop).
 
I currently have BIOS 1.24, but this was happening with 1.21 and 1.23 as well. My X220 originally came with 1.16, and I haven't updated it until 1.21. Unfortunately I don't remember that far back, if the problem started occuring then.
 
There was a brief discussion about this in another thread, but it went nowhere so perhaps this will get more attention. At least one other user reported the same issue.
 
Here's a clip of exactly what happens. When i press the button or open the lid from sleep, the windows wifi icon will start spinning for a few seconds, then turn into an X. then only about a minute later, does it quickly connect to the wifi and I have full signal. Manually clicking on the icon and selecting the access point does not speed up the process. It will only connect when it wants to, about a minute after resuming from sleep/hibernation.

Lenovo P/Y/Z Series :: IdeaPad Z500 Incredibly Slow Startup Due To Constant Hard Disk Activity

Feb 5, 2014

Purchased from Amazon 2 months ago and worked perfectly without a hitch until a few days ago when I got on the receiving end of  the win8 equivalent of the BSOD with the . From them on I ended up with slow boots random pauses etc. I opted to refresh the PC without affecting any files but toward the end of the reinstall the BSOD appears and now all I had was a black background with only a white cursor.
 
Left that for over a hour, nothing happened so held down the power button to force shutdown.  Found that Z500 no longer boots into win8 so eventually decided to do a clean reinstall with the onekeyrecovery via NOVO button. This should have been the end of all the problem I was having but unbelievably the problem is still there.
 
Research what I could about this and found that the slow boot is caused by hard disk constantly being thrashed about by a system file ntoskrnl.exe. I tried updating the wifi driver and it appeared to have done the trick until the next day when I booted up the system again. It appear that the constant hd activity goes away after a few hours of leaving the PC on.
 
Anyway I have drawn a blank as to what's going on especially as everything was working perfectly until up to that point with no signs of system conflict.

Dell XPS M1330 :: Can't See New Samsung SSD 840

Just bought a Samsung SSD 840 series 500GB drive to improve the performance of my Dell m1330. Placed the 840 in a HDD - USB adaptor and migrted the OS to it. Unfortunately the bios can't see the new SSD even though the 840 should be backward compatible with SATA I and II. The bios revision in my m1330 is A15 and I have tried both ATA mode and ACHI mode without any succes. Tried the drive in another m1330  same thing but when trying with a Packard Bell the SSD works fine. Have any of you succesfully added a SSD 840 to your m1330

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..

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 :: 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.

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.
