Dell :: Studio 17: 1 Or 2 Disk Drives

Mar 3, 2010

I just checked out Dells web site for the Studio 17 and on the menu you can select 1 500G drive or 2 320G drives.

Does the Studio 17 have slots for two drives ??

If not, does the second drive just come in an extra box ??

What manufacture drives does Dell use these days ?

Mar 10, 2008

I need help deciding which HD drives to order on my new m1730.
7,200 200 gB vs 5,400 320 gB drives?

I have seen the thread on 7,200 vs 5,400 HD drives already. Does anyone know which brands/models Dell is shipping with new m1730's?

According to a sales rep who checked with technical support Dell is not using the Samsung spinpoint 320 gB hard disk drive.

Acer :: 6920 Aspire - Simply Used The Kill Disk Program To Format My Drives

Apr 11, 2010

ok i'm at work right now and was going to remove vista from my 6920 aspire to put on xp because i have vista. Thinking i wouldn't have a problem i simply used the Kill Disk program to format my drives. I put in my xp cd and it will not load because it says HDD not detected, I don't have a cd burner on my work computer but i do have a 4 Gb flash drive is there anything i can do to get it to load up windows xp, Been reading that there is something with XP not allowing install due to the laptop having SATA setup and xp won't work with that? Can anyone please help me. Hoping there is something i can do to maybe load the drivers from my flash drive then install the xp cd.

Apple :: Spare Hard Drives - Home Replacement - And Full Disk Imaging

Jan 12, 2010

I currently have everything I ever need on one laptop -- a mid-2009 15" MBP. Having had a slew of hard drive problems over the past few years, and given that such disks are regularly the source of problems (before, say, a logic board), I'm considering purchasing a spare hard drive and keeping it, or the one in my machine, as a backup disk for the day when my current drive dies. The closest Apple store is ~45 minutes away, and I'm perfectly capable of doing my own computer surgery. An inoperable laptop would be a pretty significant problem for me.

So basically, my questions are twofold:

- From perusing the hard drive threads a few months back here in the Apple forum, it seems like WD's Scorpio Blue (500 GB, 5400 RPM) is the popular choice. Given the time that's elapsed since its release (and the thinning of hard drive threads after the last "big one" I found), are there any other drives, SSD or standard, that can beat it in terms of power usage / noise / performance overall without gouging the bill too much?

- I use Time Machine with a Time Capsule to keep everything nice and backed up, but an HD/SSD swap would be best done with an image of my entire drive. Is Carbon Copy Cloner still the go-to for that?

Dell :: Can You Install Two Drives On A Studio 14 (1458)?

Apr 21, 2010

just wondering if it was possible. I want to add an SSD to the studio 1458 in place of the optical drive.

I don't use an optical drive very often, but I will have my SSD from my other system laying around.

I know there are brackets, but can someone suggest a good site for them? Also, is it difficult to make such a conversion?

Acer :: Acer 5610-4610- ACER Disk Formatter Cannot Find Any Drives

Dec 31, 2009

I have an Acer 5610-4610 system. It was repartitioned to one XP drive for several years. I am finally wanting to put the PQ service partition back on it but none of the folders of the restore CD's have any of the files needed to recreate this partition. I am wanting to put the factory (VISTA Home Premium) system on C. With all the system files and folders from the 3 restore CD's into the PQSERVICE partition. I have no clue how to proceed.

I do remember there was an acer(C) partition and a data (D) partition when I got it. The PQSERVICE partition was there back then.

The first (System) CD has none of the files mbrwrdos.exe or rtmbr.bin
used to create the PQSERVICE system.

I run the ACER Disk Formatter and it cannot find any drives on the laptop.

Weird! From what I've been able to glean my thought was that that the Formatter disk would facilitate creating the correct partitions?

Dell :: Studio XPS 13Hard Disk Beeping?!

Feb 15, 2009

My new Studio XPS 13 hard disk often emits a beeping noise when it is being accessed. Is this normal behaviour and can I turn it off?

I noticed the beeping from the first time I turned it on. The beeping only occurs once Vista is booted (i.e. not while booting up), and when performing tasks like copying files or running a virus scan.

Dell :: Studio 151555 Disk Partitioning

Jun 22, 2009

Description of problem.
I bought a new Dell Studio 15 - 1555 with 320 GB (7200rpm Performance Hard drive). It came preinstalled with Windows Vista Home Premium.

I see two drives as C & D. C drive shows 260GB free of 282GB and D drive (Recovery) shows 8.83GB free of 14.9 GB.

How can I create partitions of my own choice with the space left on the C Dirve?

I believe the existing partition that I have are Primary partitions and the new one are also getting created as Primary, so its not allowing me to create more partition of my choice.

Please help, how can I have atleast 5-6 partitions of 50GB each .....

Dell :: Added Second Hard Disk Studio 17

Jan 15, 2009

My Studio originally had a Toshiba, 5400 rpm 250 gb drive in it.

I bought a Western Digital 7200 rpm 360 gb drive to add to my laptop.
I also got the carrier assembly from Dell and I installed the Western Digital into the Studio 17 in drive bay 1 , and put the Toshiba into Drive bay 2.

I had made an image of my C drive with Vista on it, and after installing the new hard drive I put the image onto the Western Digital drive, and all seemed to be well, I booted up and get into Vista, but now I see the C:

local hard drive shows exactly what I had before, and Vista is showing my new drive as Drive F: but it also has all my files on it exactly as the original C image that I made .....

Dell :: RAM Disk On Studio 1535, Vista 32-bit

Feb 4, 2009

Might as well outline what I did. Picked up a 2Gb stick of Patriot RAM for my Studio 15, boosting total RAM in the laptop to 4 Gb.

Vistax86 can only use 3.5Gb (Task Manager showed 3518 Mb capable of being addressed, to be exact) of it, and since I plan to move to a 64-bit OS when Windows 7 SP1 comes out, I'm in a situation where I have 500 Mb of unused RAM in my setup.

I decided to use the remaining memory as a RAMDisk. Downloaded and installed DataRam's RAMDisk beta (http://www.cenatek.com/product_page_...load_list.php), a tool recommended in the OCZ forums as part of a series of tweaks for Jmicron SSDs.

Dell :: Additional Hard Disk In Inspiron 1720 Will It Fit Into A Studio 17

Apr 22, 2009

I currently have a Dell Inspiron 1720 with a second hard disk I bought and fitted myself. If I get a Studio 17, will I be able to fit this hard disk into the second bay in there? As far as I'm aware the disk itself should be okay, but the caddy might be slightly different for that model - is that right? If so I'll just buy a new caddy or modify this one - otherwise I'll be 100 down for this hard disk!

Dell Studio 1535 :: Hard Disk Error 2000-0141

Apr 1, 2013

I am trying to fix my GF laptop model STUDIO 1535. This laptop is two years old or so. It was showing randomly blue screens on win xp sp3, so I checked forums and recommended to do a cleaning. I opened the lid, cleaned the fan ( it had a big ball of fur that prevented the fan to move) and cleaned the rest of the mb with the vacuum cleaner. Now it doesn't work anymore. I tried to disconnect and connect the HD but still the same error. I ran the diagnostic and gave me this error 2000-0141. 

Should I change the mb, the hd, the hd connector?

Dell :: Studio Western Digital Disk Quiet "clicking"

Nov 30, 2008

My WDC WD2500BEVS-75UST0 (HDD) "clicking" in IDLE MODE.
On normal or heavy load I can't hear the click.
But in IDLE - my WDC clearly "clicking".
I used NHC and set the option "Max Performance 254" and It is fine all the time.
But I hate NHC and overall addition programs in the start-up.
I found too the HDD has jumper:
http://wdc.custhelp.com/cgi-bin/wdc....p?p_faqid=1410
To reduce "Spin UP" but I'm under warranty, and it is no option.
Any advice.It is not big deal, and I can hear it only when my HDD is IDLE but....
OS: Windows Vista
HDD temperatures: normal range - 33-35-37 C
Maximum reached: 40-41 C
The temperatures are fine by my opinion.
NO BAD SECTORS!

HP/Compaq :: Non-system Disk Or Disk Error8530w Elitebook

May 24, 2010

I just borrowed my laptop to a friend and he said when he tried to boot it up he go this message.

The message I get when restarting is non-system disk or disk error, press a key to continue over and over.

When I click f10 before boot up there is a harddisk test option, where it says Hard Disk test failed, no disk installed.

So is it either the harddisk or the motherboard thats a problem? AFAIK nothing new was installed leading up to this. The computer is no longer under warranty.

That doesn't work.

Dell :: System Restore All Drives?

Feb 24, 2009

I have the following 3 drives on my Dell XPS 1530 notebook as it came from Dell :

1)Drive C :Which has all the Windows files
2)Drive D: Which has other files
3)Drive E :Which has the Recovery files

So far I have enabled System Restore only for Drive C.

Is it advisable to enable System restore for Drives D and E also ?

Im particularly asking for Drive D as system restore eats lots of space if it is enabled in Drive D.

Are there any risks if system restore is not enabled for Drive D and E
