Dell Studio 1558 :: Windows 8 Pro - AMD Catalyst Mobility 13.4 Driver

Jul 5, 2013

My current OS is Windows 8 Pro, Display driver: AMD 13-4_mobility_vista_win7_win8_64_dd_ccc_whql.exe1   If set Backlit brightness to level 2 for example, and after some time display turns off (turn off display after X minute) by itself, or restart the laptop; the Backlit brightness level remains same (level 2) but the actual Luminosity (Intensity of backlit) changes to something else.2   If I decrease the Backlit brightness (Fn + F4) to level 0 (the minimum level), and if I further press the key combination (Fn + F4) to decrease Backlit brightness, it will change the Backlit brightness, but the Backlit brightness should not be changing because it already reaches to the minimum level.This issue doesn't happen in Windows 7 with the same driver. this apart from reverting back to ATI v12.1 ?

Dell :: Studio 1558 Buy Or No?

Feb 2, 2010

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)
Memoria SDRAM DDR3 a doppio canale da 4.096 MB [2x2.048 MB], 1333 MHz
ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4570 Graphics Card
Disco rigido SATA da 500 GB (5.400 rpm)
Schermo widescreen Full HD da 15,6" (1.920 x 1.080) WLED con TrueLife
DVD +/- RW Drive (read/write CD & DVD) with DVD Burn software
Intel Wireless LAN 6200 2x2 802.11a/b/g/n card (EUR)
Garanzia limitata di 1 anno: Ritiro e restituzione
1 anno di supporto garanzia a domicilio, inclusi sabato e orari serali
Batteria principale agli ioni di litio a 6 celle da 56 Wh
Webcam integrata da 2,0 megapixel
Colore Blu notte con finitura satinata
Nessun supporto per danni accidentali
Backup online DataSafe 2 GB, 1 anno
McAfee SecurityCentre, abbonamento per 15 mesi, Italiano
Alimentatore CA da 90 W
Total Cost with IVA (value tax) and Delivery is 829,36

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 :: Studio 1558

Mar 5, 2010

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 :: Fan Noise On Studio 1558

Feb 10, 2010

Just received my Studio 15 today and it's a nice looking machine but the fan seems to run more often than I'd like. I've updated the BIOS to A03, the most current, but it doesn't seem to resolve the issue.

Dell :: Replacing My Studio 1558 HD

Feb 18, 2010

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

May 21, 2010

Core i5 430

4GB Ram
Integrated Intel graphics
Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit
Black chainlink finish
DVD burner

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 .....

The differences I've noted -ATI HD 4570 vs ATI HD 46705400rpm vs 7200rpm hard drive - I've asked if that can be upgraded"Edge-to-edge" screen - how much difference does this make?Appearance of the machine, obviously
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)

Jan 25, 2010

I ordered a Dell Studio 1558 on January 19, 2010.

4gb 1066mhz
500gb 7200rpm
ATI 4570
backlit keyboard.

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 Freezing, Unresponsive

May 14, 2010

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

May 19, 2010

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

May 3, 2010

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.

Question 1
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 :: Turns On But Won't Stay On

Apr 14, 2013

I bought a dell 1558 studi laptop and when I turned it on the fans were running like crazy, I installed speed fan and the cores (i5) were at 60 deg at idle. Bought some Arctic silver, cleaned it with the Arctic cleaners and skimmed it on as usual.I replaced the GPU and 2 smaller chips thermal stickers with Pyobia 7wt and slapped it back togther - jobs a good un.

But when it turns on from stone cold, windows starts up and goes to desktop. I can run speedfan and the cores are at 45degs, the fans then kick in successively faster and then the sceen goes black - computer still powered up fans running.If I then restart it takes less time for the screen to go black  - fans now running at vmax..It will happily sit in the Bios screen like a champ, (fans on max mind).

Dell :: Studio 1558 Unhappy With Screen Quality

Apr 16, 2010

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

Mar 1, 2010

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.
