Dell :: Studio 1555 Windows 7 Power Options

Jan 26, 2010

The feature in Windows 7 that allows you to tell the laptop to stop charging the battery when it's plugged-in and has reached 100% is very cool (and greatly helps prolong the battery's life).

Dell :: Studio 1555 Power Brick Clicking

Sep 13, 2009

Had the Studio since Wednesday and its great!

However, the power brick has started to make noises? A series of about 10 clicks in quick sucession repeated twice in a couple of seconds.

It will then go quiet for a while then do it again?

Its also pretty hot, too hot to touch for a while and its hot quickly - in about 10mins from cold.

Should I get a replacement or is this normal?

How do I go about getting it replacd? Sounds like its shorting or something?

Dell :: Problem With Studio 1555 And Windows 7

Jul 28, 2009

I recently installed Windows 7 on my studio 1555. I found a bug very irritating, I don't know what causes this.

Here is the way I noticed it:

- I setup my screen to shut down after 1 minute of inactivity.
- the mouse on the desktop (taskbar hidden) with no window opened, I let my screen shut down. After 5 minutes, I wake up my screen by moving the mouse.
- I can't take the control of my computer until 1 or two minutes as if my computer was working in background (the fans run a lot faster during this time)

Dell :: Studio 1555 And Windows 7 Upgrade

Jan 5, 2010

i just did a clean install of windows 7 on my studio 1555 and was having some issues with the audio drivers. i found and installed the idt audio drivers from the dell website,

but it didn't seem to install the idt audio software with it. i know the idt codec is installed because when i go into device manager it shows up,

but i really liked the nifty idt software that came with vista that allowed me to switch between headphone and hdmi output quite easily as well as turn off all of the stupid SRS sound enhancements.

Dell :: Windows 7 Clean Install On Studio 1555

Oct 30, 2009

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 Studio 1555 :: Did Not Start Up - Repair Windows

Sep 30, 2012

I'm using Dell Studio 1555. I've use it around 3 years. Last week my laptop start making up problem.

Firstly it will suddenly restart while i'm using it. Sometimes it will come up blank screen and need me to restart back.

After that during start up my dell logo will take times to pop up. And will ask me to repair my window.

I've read some post here said that it maybe because of the CMOS battery and I've already change it and dell logo is pop up a little bist faster than before.

But right now my laptop could not be start up. When I power up, the LED button at the On/off button is ok.

The fan also running. When I plug in my Iphone it will be charge but there is nothing on the screen.

I've also put on external monitor but also didn't show anything.

And also there is no sound @ beep during my start up.

Dell :: My 1555 A/c Power Adaptor Is HOT And BUZZING

Aug 19, 2009

I received my 1555 today and am absolutely over the moon. Trying to installing Windows 7 RC on at the moment and apart from some small hiccups - due to user erroor everything is going smoothly. BUT

From the moment I plugged in the a/c power adaptor I noticed that every so often it produces a buzzing noise? It happens every 20sec to 1min or so and last between 1sec to 10sec each time. Does anyone's do that? Not only that, it gets pretty hot as well, when I put my hand on it(on the label side) it feels really hot, in fact so hot that I have to take my hand off unless I 'made' myself stay there. Is this normal?

Dell :: Studio 1555 -vs- Studio 15 Spcial Edition

May 21, 2009

I've been reading the threads for a while and wanted to get some more opinions on the 1555 vs SSE. I know the SSE is basically the 1537 with the edge to edge monitor.

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 :: Studio 15 Screen Options

Oct 21, 2008

I am stuck debating between the 15.4 WLED (1440*900) and the 15.4 non-LED (1920*1200). I am just not sure which I would prefer. If the WLED came in a 1920*1200 option I don't think I would be so concerned.

I really like the size, weight, and potential power savings of the WLED screens but I am used to working on larger monitors (22 and 25 inch) running at higher resolutions.

What does everyone think about these two choices? Will I be happy with the WLED at the smaller resolution or is it better to opt for the traditional screen with the higher resolution?

Just so everyone knows the laptop won't be my primary computer but will get a lot of use while working on graduate work away from home, writing website code, and general use. The only gaming activity it might see is some occasional WoW.

Dell :: Studio 15 Display Options

Feb 3, 2009

I'm not interested in a large resolution (I guess that 1280x800 is enough in a 15" screen) but it seems that the display with this resolution has a smaller view angle (especially vertical) than the 1400x900 display that maybe is not very good if you spend some time reading documents.

Dell :: Studio XPS 13 Color Options

Feb 12, 2009

this is my first time posting, and i have a question.

i've heard that later on there will be different color lids for the sxps 13 and 16.

i understand that this is both a studio and an xps, so it makes me wonder if i can have cool designs on the top. i don't know how thats gonna fly with the leather, because black is the only color that i can think of that would go with it.

so heres my question: do you think that dell will release custom, or at least different colors for the sxps? possibly midnight blue, the RED one, white, brown, green. anything. and if you do, when do you think they will release the new options?

Dell :: XPS 13 "Extended Battery Life" Option In The Advanced Power Options?

Apr 12, 2009

#1 - What is the "Dell Extended Battery Life" option in the advanced power options? What does it do? The help article just says that extends the battery life.

#2 - With the facial recognition software, is there any way to take multiple "logon" images for the same user? Like sometimes I have the laptop on my lap

and sometimes it is on my desk and sometimes it is on the side so I can use with my external monitor and it seems like it won't log me in automatically unless I am in the exact position as when I enrolled it.

Dell :: Studio 1555 Crashing Etc..

Mar 9, 2010

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!

Feb 13, 2010

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.
