Dell :: Studio 1558
I was wondering if anyone has had problems with their Studio 1558 orders? I ordered on 23/02 and the EDD was 09/03, but it's now been put back to the 01/04!
The only custom components I requested were the FullHD WLED screen and the backlit keyboard. I have to say I'm not very impressed!
Dell :: Studio 1558 Buy Or No?
While I would love to be able to go with the Studio XPS 16 (16470) it is just out of my price range. Here is what I'm trying to decide to pull the trigger on:
Dell Studio 15 (1558)
INTEL® CORE™ i5-520M (2,4 GHZ, 4 THREAD, TURBO BOOST FINO A 2,93 GHZ, CACHE 3 MB)

I will have to try to call them and order rather than order via the website directly as I want the Windows 7 Home Premium install and all the accompanying software to be in English (I live in Italy and that's the reason for the italian info in the configurations).
Opinions are greatly appreciated. I have read about the throttling issues associated with the i5s and i7s and I should not fall into those areas as I am not a gamer. What are everyone's thoughts? Go ahead and pull the trigger?
Dell :: Replacing My Studio 1558 HD
I got a new Dell Studio 1558 a week or so back. Ever since I got it, I feel a constant vibration to the left of the touchpad.
After doing some research and asking some questions, apparently the Seagate 7200 RPMs have this issue. I confirmed it was the HD by putting the HD to sleep and the vibration would stop.
The best solution to me seems to replace the Seagate with a WD 5400 RPM HD. I have been looking at their Scorpio Blue for this:
Will it work with the 1558? And, how do I go about setting up the laptop after replacing the HD?
I don't have any important documents that need to be transferred, but I am guessing I will have to use the Dell DVDs to setup Windows?
Dell :: Just Received Studio 1558
Core i5 430
Integrated Intel graphics
Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit
Black chainlink finish
1080p monitor is a must unless you need large text. The 1080p screen is perfectly fine for all use. I thought it might be too hard to read, but actually find it to be perfect given how crisp the image is.
Build quality is good, not as good as the XPS but still decent. At work I use a Lenovo T500 that has a magnesium skeleton under the lid and it very solidly built .....
Dell :: Studio 1558 Freezing, Unresponsive
Had this Studio 1558 for about a week now. It's been mostly good, except it's been freezing for no good reason every so often. I'm not getting error messages, BSODs, automatic restarts, or any of that. The screens just stop responding.
I suspected it was a bad Win7 install, so I wiped and reinstalled Win7HPx64. Still froze.
Went back to a single-monitor setup, still froze.
Tried updating to the Catalyst 10.04 drivers, still froze.
Disabled Powerplay, still froze.
Changed AV/Firewall and uninstalled a pile of crap, still froze.
Installed XP, then Ubuntu, still froze.
Odd thing? Nothing in the event viewer to indicate a crash, other than the fact that a kernel power error shows up because I force a shutdown. I've yet to find a .dmp file anywhere that would indicate an actual BSOD. Fan never spun up, CPU monitors and logs don't show any sudden spike or drop in processor activity. Think the 4570 is busted?
just recalled, I've also changed power settings so the CPU can't throttle, been monitoring all 8 cores, ran off battery and off ac, all to no effect.
happens whether i'm streaming video via hulu desktop, just browsing webpages, running virus scans, or just doing mostly nothing. ran the gamut of dell diagnostics, but nothing.
Dell :: WWAN And Bluetooth On Studio 1558
Just got a 1558 in replacement for a 1525. I popped the back cover to install my upgraded Wifi, and add the WWAN and Bluetooth... No extra mini PCI slots for the BT or WWAN - There is a sticker that says WWAN but no connector or wires.... Since my 1525 has these options ( I did not buy the BT or WWAN card from Dell ) do i ask for another system that has these on-board? Is Dell obligated to provide one that is capable even though in their records i did not have BT or WWAN.
Dell :: Studio 1558 Vs. Latitude E6510
I received a Studio 1558 with spec in my signature last Tuesday. Its screen just went crazy (changing colors, vertical screen, all sorts of things) on Friday and Dell offered me a new system replacement. I bought the system with Dell Preferred Account and also purchased extended warranty on Wednesday (right after I received the laptop) using my debit card.
I said go ahead and the rep in Philippines told me that she would process the new system dispatch on Monday, which is tomorrow. Now I'm thinking I would not want Studio 15 for durability issue, especially because of the screen failure in 3 days of opening the box. I loved virtually everything of the laptop initially but I feel like I should get a Latitude.
So, I'll talk to Customer Services first thing tomorrow in the morning and return my Studio. Since I used DPA, I haven't paid anything for the system itself - this probably won't be a problem for refund. But how about warranty? Am I going to get that refunded to my debit card account as soon as I return the laptop?
I configured Latitude E6510 as follows:
Core i5 520, 4GB @ 1333, 250GB @ 7200rpm, FHD 1920x1080, NVS 3100M, backlit keyboard, advanced-N 6200, no bluetooth, no webcam, no DVD burner, 3yr basic mail-in service warranty.
I also decided to just get Windows Vista Basic 32 bit. They are charging US$109 more for Win7 Pro x64, but I'll be able to download it for free using my school's MSDN Academic Alliance program .....
Dell :: Studio 1558 Ati Catalyst
I've updated my drivers through the Dell site from R221539 to R257949 and now suddenly I can't open the Catalyst Control Center.
After installation it said there's a warning in the log, I checked the log and there was nothing wrong there.
Dell :: XPS 1647advantages Over Studio 1558?
Trying to decide between the 1647 and the 1558 - obviously, the 1558 is substantially cheaper.

Have I missed anything? I've not found enough so far to justify the price difference.
Dell :: Studio 1558 (after One Week And Still In Pre-production)
I ordered a Dell Studio 1558 on January 19, 2010.
I'm obviously excited about receiving it, however.... after close to a week... it's still in "pre-production."
I've called a few times. First time I was told "It could take up to 48 hours to get out of pre-production and into in-production."
Fair enough. 48 hours later it was still in pre-production, so I called back and they told me it could be a payment issue. So I called the verification department and they told me everything was 100% good to go.
Anyway, different people telling me different things, finally I landed on some honesty. A representative told me that the problem is that there is a part on back-order and so that is why it hasn't moved into production yet. I'm guessing it's the processor, what do you guys think?
Anyway, the original delivery date was projected as February 4, 2010. The guy on the phone today said that I should expect the order to be moved into production within 48 hours (I'm not so sure I believe this) and that the delivery date will probably move to February 9, 2010.
I have absolutely no problem with this, part not in stock = no problem. My issue is, different reps telling me different stories. If it comes down to waiting till February 9 and I get my laptop then, I am fine with that, but if this drags on farther, I would rather cancel my order and purchase from another company.
What do you guys think? Also, has anybody actually received their 1558 yet? What do you think of it?
Dell :: Studio 1558 Unhappy With Screen Quality
I've just purchased a brand new dell studio 15 i5.
I'm pleased with everything so far apart from the screen!
When looking at block colours or lighter colours in particular. They fade slightly towards the bottom of the screen. I'm currently designing a menu and the light cream background fades to white at the base of the screen.. Not Good!
I've had a dell technician come and replace the screen, to no avail. It must be the way they're made, un-even light distribution (my words, not the dell technician)?
Is anyone else frustrated by this, and is there a way of fixing it?
Dell :: Studio 1558 And The 90 Slim Power Adaptor
What are your experiences regarding how hot the adaptor gets? A couple of times now I've been viewing a flash video or what ever while browsing and have found that the 90W adaptor has gotten uncomfortably hot to the touch.
i mean it gets hot enough that the label on the back with the adaptor specs has begun to bubble in spots.
Dell :: Optical Drive Noise In Studio 1558?
I got my Studio 15 notebook yesterday.
Whenever I power on my notebook. I hear one sound twice for a second. There after on 'Dell' screen I hear it once again just before Windows 7 startup screen appears. I think it's from slot optical drive.
Am I correct?
I have never used a notebook before.
So kindly tell me is this normal ? Do optical drives in notebooks make such sounds at startup as well as more noise while using (compared to desktops)
Dell :: CompleteCare System Exchange Experience, E1505 --> Studio 1558
If you're just gonna tl;dr, read the first two and the very last paragraph, and look at the specs in sig.
I searched pretty thoroughly through the forums when I started my completecare process, but found no info, so I think this might be helpful for other people wondering what the Complete Care System Exchange / Replacement Warranty process is like.
So I've had a number of parts placed on the e1505 I purchased in summer 2006, every single component and plastic at least once except for the screen itself, a wsxga+ 1680x1050 - they literally don't sell these in laptops anymore.
It took a catastrophic spill outside my house on April 21st (i think), I tried to save it, but couldn't - screen had shattered, back left corner had bent up about an inch (heatsink assembly included), right hinge torn apart, but it still booted! I could plug in an external monitor and get somewhat though the boot phase (never bothered to fully boot back into windows after that)
Called in on the 22nd, they next-dayed a box, and i shipped it out on the 23rd.
Depot got in on the 28th according to FedEx, but I hadn't heard from them so I called in on the 29th to find out that the depot had in fact found there was fatal damage, and they were waiting on approval for a System Exchange .....
Dell :: 5530 Wireless Driver
I uninstalled the drivers for my 5530 card, but will like to install them again. The drivers are not on my dell dvd that shpiied with my computer, but found this file on dell's site: DELL_WIRELESS-5530-HSPA-MINI_A02_R197332.
When I install that file, the instalation process aborts.. - i tried restart, disable my card (it's liste in device manger with missing drivers), and ran CClean once - no luck.
Sony :: Vaio N130G Wireless Driver
I have a Sony Vaio N130G that has the original drivers for the wireless card.
Is there a way to get something like PROset/Wireless software to work on my model?
Or anything that helps get a better signal than the standard software/drivers?
Dell :: Studio XPS 1645 / Studio 1747 Wireless Configs
Does anyone have any idea why? Is this something affecting Dell globally or is it just UK/Europe in a mess?
I guess I could survive with just wireless G, but it seems ridiculous to be limited to that these days;
I guess I could also just order it and pick up an intel/dell Wireless N card for ~£25 and install it myself,
but again the question arises, why is it necessary? I assume some of you do have an 802.11n card of some description in your 1645/1747's have you seen any problems with it? .....
Acer :: Acer Extensa 4630Z - Wireless Driver
I just installed XP Pro on my Acer Extensa 4630Z and I installed all the drivers successfully but the wireless driver. I tried all the drivers from acer's support site [url] none of them work. I also tried what worked for Davoucci with same laptop but this driver also doesn't work for me
Dell :: Studio XPS 13 Wireless
it seems to only get 1 bar when it should get 4/5 (What my laptop with a Broadcom card gets sitting right next to her laptop) and sometimes it gets no bars. She is currently running Windows 7 with the latest drivers from Dell's website.
Anyone heard of this/have an solutions? I mean, my cell phone gets better wi-fi than her laptop which I think is ridiculous. The card is the Dell 1510 wireless mini card.
Dell :: Studio 1737 Wireless
I'm having some pretty big problems with the wireless on my 1737. It has the Intel 5300 card installed.
I have an 802.11a/n router, the AVM Fritz!Box Fon WLAN 7270. It worked perfectly fine with my previous laptop, an Acer Aspire 5920G with an Intel 4965 but with the Studio it constantly drops off.
On Wednesday it disconnected and reconnected 51 times in 5 hours! Setting the router back to 2.4 GHz seems to reduce the disconnects but not remove them entirely (2.4 is clogged in my area so that's why I'm using 5). The thing is, I tried a 4965 card in the Studio and that was dropping off too .....
Dell :: Wireless N On Studio Xps 1640?
Just had my connection upgraded to 50Mb & when i connect my xps to it wirelessly i can only reach speeds of 20Mb.
I have a usb Wireless N external addaptor which gets me speeds of between 35 and 42Mb but its massive and quite unsightly.
Is it possible for me to install a wireless N adaptor to replace the one in this laptop or would i have to get a smart card slot deal?
Dell :: Studio XPS 1340 Cannot Connect Wireless-N
I'm completely unable to get this laptop to connect to a Linksys WRT150N wireless router.
Under a/b/g the connection is no problem. Under Wireless-N, it sees the SSID, but can't connect to it.
I'm using the latest driver from the looks of it. 188.8.131.52 and downloaded it right from the Dell support page.
The router is setup as
Radio Band: Auto
Wide Channel: Auto
Standard Channel: Auto .....
Dell :: Studio 15 Wireless Unable To Connect To My Network
I just received a new Studio 15 (Vista Premium) with the Dell 1510 Wireless card and I'm unable to connect to my network using a Belkin N1 router. First let me say I'm limited in my knowledge of wireless networking but I did try troubleshooting a little without any success (Wi-Fi is turned on). When I click on "Connect To" it does pickup my network plus several others with great signal strength so the card is seeing networks but when I put my Key in it keeps coming up can't connect to my network.
Since the Studio 15 came with McAfee with it's firewall enabled I disabled it but still no connection. I even tried Safe Mode With Networking but still no success. I finally called Dell and he did some troubleshooting like having me go to Network Adapters and then to the Dell Wireless Card and Advance.
Under "Property" it was set to 802.11h+d and under "Value" it was set to "Loose 11h" but he had me change it to "Band Preference" and "Prefer 802.11g/b". It didn't make a difference but I did notice it had reverted back to the first settings when I back to that screen.
The tech gave up and transferred me higher up so the new tech says he needs to configure some settings on my Studio 15 and my Belkin Router in order for it to work but it would cost me $69.
I'm not paying Dell another $69 so can someone help me? I should state I have a Dell 1505 with their standard wireless card (not N1) and it connects with no problem.
