Dell :: Install Windows 7: AHCI Driver

Aug 19, 2009

I am about to install Windows 7 thanks to my school's MSDNAA program and plan to use the 64-bit version (replacing Vista/32-bit). I remember from the bloatware removal thread where it is highly recommended to install the AHCI driver before installing the OS since there is a performance boost.

Should I continue to use the AHCI driver before installing Windows 7? On Dell's site, they only list vista versions, so I don't know if it is needed or if it even works with 7.

If I should keep using it, should I use the 32-bit or 64-bit driver on Dell's site? I know it sounds obvious that I would want the 64-bit driver if I am upgrading to a 64-bit OS, but I have heard people say many 64-bit drivers are not as reliable as 32-bit, so I am wondering if it matters which one I use

Acer :: 5930g AHCI Driver For WinXP

Sep 29, 2008

So I wanted to try out WinXP, to see the performance difference.

At first, the WinXP setup wasn't able to see the HDD. So I changed the SATA Controller Bios mode to IDE mode. (was AHCI for Vista).

I managed to install so have a dual booted system. However I can't use IDE mode for Vista. (must switch SATA bios each time).

Everything installed fine. Even got 3dMark06 increase of 150 points (not much lol). Oh and CrystalMark of 100K instead of 90K on Vista.

But I'd like to use AHCI mode for WinXP. Saw a link in a WinXP 5930g Guide, however that link was out of date.

The driver was called: "Intel(R) ICH9M M-E Family 4 Port SATA AHCI Controller - 2929 Driver".

I got a T430s with the nvidia nvs 5400m and when i try to update drivers etc via the lenovo system update I got a message that I should update the Intel rapid storage driver to, and that isn't even the latest version, but anyway I mark the update and let it install and then reboot.

Dell :: AHCI

Jan 26, 2009

I want to install mediadirect on my xps 1530. I want to follow this Dell Vista Laptop Reformat and Bloatware Removal Guide
But I have a question before beginning.

This paragraph : AHCI Concerns: On new Dell systems, they are set up to run in AHCI mode which will give you a 15% system performance boost. In many instances, the AHCI driver MUST be installed during the initial installation process for the installation to work.

Those not installing it are finding that their system may BSOD or hang during the installation and saying "Completing Installation Process". One must find the driver specific to their system either on the drivers disk that came with their laptop or at in the drivers section.

Download and expand it to a USB drive or disk; the USB is preferred but it is important that you expand it on the media you just saved it to. Once done, put it aside for now .....

Dell :: Best Driver For Studio Xps 13 (Win 7 64 Bit)

Aug 1, 2009

Has anyone any recommendations on which driver to use on the studio xps 13. I tried to play fallout 3 with EVERYTHING turned off and set to the lowest resolution and it plays sooo slow.

I had a macbook 2ghz with a geforce 9400 card before I went to the XPS and still managed to play it at 1280x800 on medium settings.

I checked out a few reviews of the card and playing at these settings is way achievable but it seems like im having a driver issue?

Dell :: Studio XPS 16 Windows 7 Driver

Aug 7, 2009

Since a lot of people will be moving to Windows 7 this weekend with Technet & MSDN now available, I thought it would be good to share experiences relating to drivers and what is or isn't needed.

What drivers, if any, will be necessary to load that aren't included in the normal Win7 setup?

Is a Win7 driver available from Dell at this point or does the corresponding Vista driver work perfectly?

I recently undertook a clean install of Vista (SP1) onto my XPS M1530. After the installation was complete,

- Intel(R) ICH8M Ultra ATA Storage Controllers - 2850

Dell :: Which Graphics Driver To Use Fr Studio 1555?

Oct 12, 2009

Dell is offering driver version 8.631.0.0000 (A09) for the mobility radeon 4570HD on their site.

I'm currently running modded catalyst 9.9 and the current driver installed is 8.632.1.2000.

Any reason I should use the Dell driver in this case or should I just keep on using the modded AMD one (which will probably be updated on a more regular basis)?

Dell :: Studio 15 Sound Driver Crashes

Dec 9, 2009

Recently I've had this issue where the sound driver dies, usually freezing any sound-using programs with it. For example, if I view a Flash video on Firefox or IE8, the flash plugin causes kills the sound driver and the browser locks up. Skype will kill the sound driver too.

So will plugging in my USB microphone or sometimes my HDMI cable to my TV (I watch instant Netflix on it).

Once the sound driver crashes, I can't get any sound from programs like Winamp and even the Windows logoff has to be bypassed because it can't play the logoff sound. The internet is all but unusable unless I disable flash (because any flash page will crash it)
