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 :: Studio 1555 4GB To 8GB Upgrade

Jul 10, 2009

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 Drop In Processor Upgrade?

Jun 14, 2009

I'm getting a Studio 1555 with the t4200 Penryn Pentium Dual Core CPU. Would a P8600 Core 2 Duo work if I put it in the socket? It seems to be exactly the same core, just faster FSB and multiplier. My guess is Dell use the same motherboard for all 1555 laptops.

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 :: 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 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 :: 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.

Oct 22, 2009

I just picked up a copy of home permium and I am debating between 32bit and 64bit.

Dell's webpage does not list the 1535 as one of the compatible systems. Has anyone does it yet? Any major issues with drivers and the 64bit version?

Dell :: Best Buy Studio 14z Are Not Eligible For Windows 7 Upgrade

Jul 2, 2009

Do not purchase the dell studio 14z if you plan to upgrade your laptop to windows 7, I purchased mine on the 30th from bestbuy and went to sign up for the program but because dell gave the laptop to them on the 18th of june it's not eligible, so I had to return it to bestbuy and order the same thing through dell.

Definatly upgrade to the 900p screen, the 720 screens are grainy and u can see spaces inbetween each pixel causing u to see columns, my friends 14z with 900p doesnt have these spaces and has way better viewing angles.

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 1735 / Authentic Finger Print Reader Drivers And Windows 7 X64 Upgrade

Nov 28, 2012

I did an upgrade from win vista x32 to win 7 x64 on my Dell Studio 1735.   In order to do that upgrade I did change the HDD to a 1 TB and update from 3GB to 4GB ram.

Now I have on item still not working after that upgrade.    The integrated biometric (fingerprint reader) refuse to work.  Windows 7 x64 did detect that it was an Authentec device, and installed it driver.

But If I installe the software for the reader.  It refuse to install and give this as the reason (No driver installed for the reader)   I've tried to replace the windows driver with the original Authentec drivers, but windows 7 replace the drivers with it's own.

Any windows 7 drivers out there for my Authentec integrated device ?

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.

Dell :: My Studio 15 1555 Review

Sep 13, 2009

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
Design
Nice design and a sturdy construction, has a kind of wedge shape.
Screen:
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.
Keyboard
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.
Touchpad
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.
Features:
Multimedia Keys
The keys are on the main keyboard and shared with the "F" Keys.
LEDS
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.
Wifi
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.
Speakers
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
Front
There are no ports on the front of the machine
Webcam Pictures
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.
Right Side:
1 x USB 2.0, Slot loading DVD-RW Drive
8 in 1 media card reader, ExpressCard 34 and Power Adaptor
Left Side:
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.
Rear:
There are no ports on the back.
Bottom:
There are 3 ventilation grills and the usual opening for the memory and Hard drive access.
Benchmarks
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.
Battery Life
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.
Software
The software that came pre-installed was Roxio CD Creator and Windows Live.
Accessories
All that came was the power supply (it has a nice blue led on the power jack)
Pros:
Great Screen
Fast Processor
Light and Portable
Long Battery Life
Cons:
No Activity LEDS
Gets quite hot under Gaming
Backlit keyboard not standard.
Conclusion:
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.
