Dell :: Which Graphics Driver To Use Fr Studio 1555?
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 :: Windows 7 Clean Install On Studio 1555
I got my Dell Windows disk yesterday and I would like to do a clean install. I would like to do 2 partitions....
one for the OS at 150 GB and the remaining space in another partition for things like music, pictures, movies....etc.
I was able to delete all the partitions that originally came with the 1555 so that there is one big Disk O Unallocated Space.
I then clicked new to make a partition for the OS. I set it to be 150 GB when I did this it also created another partition at 100 MB. So now I have:
Disk 0 Partition 1: System Reserved Total Size 100 MB Free Space 86 MB Type System
Disk 0 Partition 2 Total Size 146.4 GB Free Space 146.4 GB Type Primary
Disk 0 Unallocated Space Total Size 319.3 GB Free Space 319.3 Gb .....
Dell :: Vista Clean Install Problems On Studio 1555
I decided to hold off on upgrading to Windows 7 on my Studio 1555 but I wanted to perform a clean install of Vista. So I popped in the Vista installation disc that came with the computer, partitioned the hard drive, and installed Vista. Now it is up and running but with a few problems. The problems are; (1)the ethernet controller is not recognized, (2)the intergrated camera is not recognized (when I open Webcam Central is says "Please plug in a supported webcam), and (3) the displays that used to show up when using the brightness and volume function keys no longer appears. I installed all of the drivers on the drivers and utilities disc that came with the computer but these problems are still there.
Dell :: Driver On Studio 1555 With Mobility Radeon HD4570 512MB
I've decided to try and play some games on it, only to find out I have some serious problems with it..
I've tried two different games, and the result is the same in both - the computer will hang about 1 minute after launching the game and only hard shutdown is possible (holding the power button)..
After doing a little analysis of the memory dump, I found out the graphics driver is the one to blame.................................
Acer :: Being Prompted To Install Driver For "COPROCESSOR" After Clean Install
Doing a clean install of Vista and keep getting prompted to locate and install driver for "Coprocessor". Have looked in device manager (yellow mark) but I just don't know what it is. Windows says it can't locate software for it.
Don't know what I am looking for on Acers site under drivers, installed all other stuff OK, Realtek, NVidia etc. Could it be a modem driver. Properties in device manager give no clues, it's listed as "other devices" along with the webcam which I have to sort drivers out for too.

I placed my order for the SSE last week with an estimated delivery date of 6/15
I could cancel my order and go with the 1555 with an estimated ship date of 6/01. what do you think. I have ~$1000 to play with ......
Dell :: Install Windows 7: AHCI Driver
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
Dell :: 600m Need Driver To Install Mini PCI
My SMC PCMCIA adapter died a few days ago, and I'm really tired of dragging the cable with me as I move around the house. I can get a mini PCI wireless card from eBay [url]. It doesn't look like there's an installation CD in the eBay listing. Will I need a driver for it? What driver would I use? Also, is the antenna built into the card or would I need to add that? If I have to keep buying things to add wireless to this laptop, I'll just stick to USB, although I'd rather not tie up a USB port.

I have a dv5-1235dx that i wiped clean and installed Windows 7 Professional. My first round of updates took care of most drivers like scrolling and sound. My laptop has the touch sensitive button up top for volume, mute, play, pause etc.
The volume buttons work but the volume bar no longer displays on screen and it doesnt "click" as you change the volume.
I have the HP page for drivers [url] but dont know what i need. I installed HP quick launch buttons but that didnt do it.
Does anyone know which driver it is? Also which ones should i get and is there a specific way to install them or just run them?

Acer :: : Can't Install Driver Video Under Vista 32 Bit
I have just received an Acer 5935 and I have already formatted and reinstalled Vista 32 Ultimate SP2.
The laptop has two video cards: a nVidia GT130 1GB and an Intel GM4500.
I downloaded the latest nVidia WHQL notebook driver (186.03) for my graphic card but i can't install it.
The installation stops and I have the following message: "hardware not recognised".
I am obliged to use the older Acer driver and you know they never update it to the latest and most performant release.
Anyway, it's not because of the two graphic cards...
I have had the same problem with a Dell Studio 1555 which has an ATi HD4570 512MB.
I tried the latest modded Catalyst (6.6) and I was obliged to install Dell's driver... but I could install the same driver on another laptop (Dell Studio 1535) with a HD3450.

Dell :: Studio 1555 Crashing Etc..
I got it in November, sometimes when i go to ANY of my browsers to view pages with flash. The whole browser freezes and crashes, so i start it up again and go to the page, and crash again.. so i try to use another browser (i literally have chrome, Firefox, safari and IE) all of them do the same exact thing.. and once it crashes there's no way to get it back up unless you restart. It gets very annoying having to restart my laptop about 5 times a day. I've done everything, uninstalling flash player, reinstalling it, reinstalling browsers.. I've even reinstalled my OS because nothing else would work. I don't understand why this laptop has so many issues. Randomly freezes, crashes etc. Its basically brand new and i shouldn't have these issues. My old Compaq presario cq60-215dx NEVER ever did any of these thing this Studio laptop does. This laptop is about 400 dollars more than my Compaq.. Also, i dual booted Vista and Windows 7 and Vista is a hell of a lot faster, it boots up faster and never crashes.. It just seems as if Dell did something to this OS to make it a piece.. help?
Dell :: Studio 1555 FREEZing!
I just received my new Studio 1555 with Core2 P8600, 4GB RAM, Windows7 64Bit.
It freezes up on me at lease twice daily. I can't spot the problem, it has froze once when using excel, many times watching youtube videos and once using a tax software.
Everything just hangs and freezes. Can't do anything, have to hold the power button down. A few times when youtube froze, the sound stayed but in a frozen state.
What can it be?
Dell sent me some additional ram to upgrade to 8GB but that hasn't helped.
I have updated all drivers.
Please help. I'm tired of waiting on the phone and going through with Dell for hours and hours.
Dell :: My Studio 15 1555 Review
On first look i found that the build quality was better than expected, I had read a fiew reviews by owners that thebase was flimsy and so was the keyboard. I have found this to be quite solid and i can see no flex at all.
The keyboard is very responsive and a pleasure to use, although i find that some of the keys give a slight squeeking noise when pressed. I intend to get a backlit keyboard sometime soon so that should fix the squeeking problem.
I bought this from the outlet as refurbished but it looks brand new and i saved nearly £300 this way instead of self configuring the system.
What's in the Box:
Dell Windows Vista Home Premium 64 Bit installation dvd, Works 9, Driver and Resource Disk, 90w Power Supply
Nice design and a sturdy construction, has a kind of wedge shape.
This WLED 720p screen is far brighter than anything else i have ever seen, the picture is nice and crisp and colours are very vibrant. There is no ghosting at all and HD movies are a pleasure to watch on this, its a 15.6" 16:9. There is an option for a 1080p screen but i did not have that option getting this from the Outlet. Under sunny conditions the screen is quite reflective but i plan to use it indoors 95% of the time so it will not be an issue.
The keyboard is a pleasure to use, I did not get a backlit version but i intend to as soon as I can get dell on the phone, I find the keys very responsive and well laid out.
The multimedia keys are on the top of the keyboard along with the F Keys, to use the F1 Keys ect you have to press the Fn key.
At first i did not like the touch pad as it has a textured feeling and not a smooth finish like im used to , after a while i have got used to it and its not as bad as i first thought, there is a scroll pad on the side although the touch pad has no indication of this, when playing games this area gets quite hot.
The keys are on the main keyboard and shared with the "F" Keys.
One of my main complaints abot this machine is there are no LEDS for hard drive activity or wireless ect. The only light is on the power button on the side of the screen hinge.
My system has the Intel WiFi Link 5300 AGN card and the signals are strong and i have not suffered any drop outs or interference. Just a pity this laptop has no Wireless LED.
The speakers are of a decent quality, i had read about the previous Studio 15 which had poor sound quality but this is more than acceptable and a subwoofer is included.
Input and Output Ports
There are no ports on the front of the machine
The screen has a 2.0mp camera in and the quality is very good, the best i have seen in a laptop. Pictures are good with no noise or distortion.
1 x USB 2.0, Slot loading DVD-RW Drive
8 in 1 media card reader, ExpressCard 34 and Power Adaptor
VGA, HDMI 2x USB 2.0 (1x USB/E-SATA combo, 2x standard) IEEE 1394a/Gigabit NIC (no RJ11 – via dongle for USB External Modem) 1x Stereo in, 2x headphone speaker out.
There are no ports on the back.
There are 3 ventilation grills and the usual opening for the memory and Hard drive access.
I have had time to do 2 benchmarks, 3dmark06 and Super PI
3dmark Vantage would not run with the resolution on this laptop.
3DMark06 Scored 4193
and Super PI took 48 seconds to do 2 million count.
Size and Weight
The laptop is light about 2.61 kg and is easily carried around so its very portable.
Heat and Noise
Under general use the laptop does get warm but nothing to worry about, when gaming it gets quite hot so it will be uncomfortable on your lap if you game alot. The fans are quite quiet i have found and do not cause any disturbance when on.
Under general use with a 6 cell battery i get around 3 hours 30 mins, I do not feel that a 9 cell would of been benefical to me.
The software that came pre-installed was Roxio CD Creator and Windows Live.
All that came was the power supply (it has a nice blue led on the power jack)
Light and Portable
Long Battery Life
No Activity LEDS
Gets quite hot under Gaming
Backlit keyboard not standard.
A great all rounder laptop that should full-fill the needs of most, Not to over priced and has some good choices when configuring to buy.
Dell :: Just Ordered Studio 1555

Dell :: Studio 1555 4GB To 8GB Upgrade
I have been planning to upgrade the amount of memory, but as I read through Intel`s datasheet for the 945PM chipset, it supposedly only supports 4GB.
Since Dell also offers an 8GB option, I am wondering whether they put a different chipset, eg 965 perhaps.
Does anyone have an 8GB Studio 1555 to confirm my theory?

Dell :: Studio 1555 Heat ...
I am still having problems with FPS drops in games, I have tried everything and have come to the conclusion it must be heat related.
By running HWMonitor I can see the sensor for my GPU has reached 94c!!!
I think at this temp its downlocking and causing my FPS drops.
Could anyone else with a 1555 run hwmonitor (its free) then play a demanding game for a while and check the ACHI temps?
You can see my temps in my other posts regarding the poor HS and Fan

Dell :: STUDIO 1555 In Game

the specifications of my laptop are as follows

the problem only happens whenever i play games for a few minutes!
Dell :: Studio 1555 Problem
Wondered if anyone had experienced anything similar...
I got a studio 1555 about a month ago and for the most part it works great. However....
Occasionally the computer stops responding - i.e. I'll be browsing the internet in Safari/Firefox and all of a sudden it will hang - I have to go to task manager to quit out of it. When I go back to open Safari it wont open, nor will any other application. I can double click on them but nothing happens.
Also, when this happens, Windows Vista refuses to shut down - I have to turn the computer off manually - i.e. hold the power button down for several seconds.
Also, and perhaps this is unconnected, I've noticed that when I go to the control panel, Windows Explorer crashes the first time I access it and I have to go back to the control panel to access it again.
Dell :: Studio 1555 Battery
I've had my new studio 1555 for just over a week now. The battery wear is irritating me though. I get like 4 hours on Windows 7,
when I'm supposed to get MAX 6.5 hours.
I opened up Everest, and it says Designed Capacity is 7800 mWh, but Fully Charged Capacity is 6731 mWh. Is that something to worry about?
Apparently my wear level is 13% And it's literally brand new.

Dell :: Studio 1555 802.11n Card
I have what's branded as a Dell Wireless 1510 802.11n card, so I bought Cisco-Linksys WRT160N-RM Wireless-N router. It distributes an N signal to a wireless adapter of the same make perfectly,
which I have plugged in to my Xbox 360, but my laptop just gives the generic Windows 7 'can't connect to network' error. I've tried everything in the settings of the router,
and yes, my drivers are up to date. I even switched to Broadcom drivers, since Broadcom is the actual manufacturer of the card; Dell distributes it and puts their own brand of driver on it.
