Dell :: 1737 Studio

Jul 26, 2009

I'm looking for a notebook, the two things that are most important to me are screen size and performance. My computer usage is mainly websurfing, photos, music, IM'ing, that kinda stuff. I'm a huge multi-tasker, somehow I always end up with 1000 windows and programs open, I need a computer that can deal with that. I don't think I've ever played a game on a computer, so gaming is a complete non-issue.

I live a pretty mobile life, hence my desire for a laptop. I'm drawn towards computers with asthetically pleasing features ie funky colours, light-up keyboards, etc. I know their functionality is limited, just what I like.

I found this one, [url]

it's refurb which is fine by me, I don't know much about computer numbers (I'm trying to learn as fast as I can) but this one seems to be up my alley, I really dig the red too, plus the half price from OEM. Others I've looked at are the alienware m17 and the dell XPS 1730, although it doesn't look like Dell is selling that from their canadian site anymore.

Dell :: Studio 1737

Oct 1, 2009

I decided to redo another thread about Windows XP Pro 32-bit drivers that will work with the Studio 1737 Laptop. These drivers may work with the 1735, 1555, and 1535 lines as well (except for the Chipset).

Please note the components of the system I purchased. (Below) If you have any of the same components, then you're good to go. I'll post other drivers as well that I find along the way in this journey of getting the Studio line to function properly on Windows XP Pro 32-bit.

My Studio 1737 main components purchased in Sept, 2009.
Intel Core 2 Duo P7350, 2.0GHz, 1066Mhz, 3M L2 Cache
512MB ATI Mobility Radeon HD 3650
Intel 5100 Wireless-N (1x2) Half Mini-Card
Broadcom ethernet
Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi MB (the particular Creative software I have will not install on XP, but the IDT Audio drivers are needed)
Back-lit Keyboard (no application for this in XP. Just press the FN and RIGHT arrow)

Also, I'd like to add these observations.
1. Touch Pad (black plate above the keypad) -- The Volume, Pause, Stop, Eject controls work, but the Volume Up and Down ONSCREEN Diagram doesn't appear. BUT IT DOES WORK, JUST KEEP TAPPING THE VOLUME BUTTONS, and you'll notice the Volume fluctuates.
2. For Battery and Power Screen brightness to be the same... Press FN and the UP/Down Key. Then unplug Power cord, and repeat for the brightness to be the same when unplugged.
3. For Back Lit Keyboard to work...Press FN and the RIGHT ARROW. Repeat this action to dim, and turn off.

Dell :: XP 64 Bit On My Studio 1737

Jan 21, 2009

I searched on the site for an answer but did not find anything so I am creating this thread.

I know there is a lot out there about XP on the 1737 and driver issues and such..most of which seems not insurmountable.

I am concerned about this ATA/AHCI thing...in the bios for the SATA hard drives.

Dell :: Just Got Studio 1737, My Impression

Apr 18, 2009

Picked up one at Futureshop in Toronto. Originally I wanted to go directly through Dell so I can upgrade to the 7200rpm sata harddrive, and possibly WLED display. In the end I couldn't want to wait x weeks for it to arrive (for work reasons).

Overall impression, very happy!

-I chose this mainly for the keyboard. Very simple english-only keyboard, with hardly any multi-functions on one key. No crazy labels and colors, just plain jane. Loved how all needed working keys are included like pgup/pgdn/home/end/del/backspace/etc... I find it infuriating on other laptops when any of these keys are missing, combined, too small, etc. Love the seperate numpad.

-Yes, the keyboard is 'flexy' but I don't think it warrants the amount heat ppl are giving it. I kind of like it flexy actually. Maybe they are on to something in terms of tactility or useability.

-Biggest disappointment: no backlit keyboard included !!!!! Was a shocker to me which I only discovered 5 hours later at night. If you order directly from Dell in Canada, do you get a backlit keyboard? Is there anyway this can be added or upgraded?

-Yes, it does have an eSata port! Some people have said only the 15" Studio version does does.

-Love the power and find-network buttons on either side of the display hinges. They got a rubbery touch and the placement makes sense.

-I am pretty sure I got a regular CCFL LCD with this, as Futureshop doesn't have the option to upgrade to WLED or RGB LED backlighting. I'll say I'm very happy with it, and my at home I am going to connect to a CRT anyways, which I can do colour correcting work on when I need to. I think I spent too much time worrying about upgrading the display when the regular CCFL LCD is fine.

Dell :: Studio 1737 CPU Speed

Apr 17, 2009

I ran several system checking software suites which showed errors in the hardware configuration because the motherboard is only capable of supporting a FSB of 800MHz.

Does anyone have a similar issue or can provide an explanation about this?..

I know the memory is 800MHz but I expected this deluxe CPU to be supported by the motherboard and run at 1066MHZ...

Dell :: Studio 1737 Wireless

Jun 12, 2009

I'm having some pretty big problems with the wireless on my 1737. It has the Intel 5300 card installed.

I have an 802.11a/n router, the AVM Fritz!Box Fon WLAN 7270. It worked perfectly fine with my previous laptop, an Acer Aspire 5920G with an Intel 4965 but with the Studio it constantly drops off.

On Wednesday it disconnected and reconnected 51 times in 5 hours! Setting the router back to 2.4 GHz seems to reduce the disconnects but not remove them entirely (2.4 is clogged in my area so that's why I'm using 5). The thing is, I tried a 4965 card in the Studio and that was dropping off too .....

Dell :: Studio 1737 Audio Lag

Mar 28, 2009

Have a Dell Studio 1737...whenever I play a dvd or a downloaded Vid/Movie etc...

have noticed there is a slight lag in audio, meaning that the audio is either a second behind or a bit behind. Example..

if the video is a video of someone talking the persons mouth opens and the audible speech is delayed a little bit (I know that's a horrible example but don't know how to explain it!!)

Dell :: Studio 1737 VGA Port

Apr 10, 2009

I just purchased a Dell Studio 1737, my first notebook ever. Here are the specs:

Intel Core Duo T6400, 2.0 GHz, 800 MHz, 2M L2 Cache
4GB DDR2 800MHz 2 Dimm
320G 5400RPM SATA Hard Drive
Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 4500MHD
Integrated High Definition Audio 2.0

(All for $830 with taxes and S&H. Good deal?)

I'm pretty happy with it so far, but I was wondering about the VGA output on the left side of the model. Supposedly it's only for output, but it's a female connection and I was wondering if I could make it work as a VGA input. (My desire is to play some Xbox 360 on it.) I'm using the Vista 64bit OS. Is it possible with this integrated card, or would I have to go out and try to upgrade it? Is it possible to upgrade the video card on the Studio non-xps .....

Dell :: Over-saturation On Studio 1737 RGB LED

Dec 23, 2008

Colors are not correct on my Studio 1737 RGB LED, even after calibration with Spyder2Pro. Calibration adjusts the color temperature etc, so gray-scale images and documents are displayed correctly. But there is ridiculous over-saturation of colors. It just hurts my eyes.... Interesting thing though, inside ICM-aware applications (PhotoShop, LigthRoom) images are displayed correctly - just the image, program window itself and tools etc are over-saturated.

Several users had reported this problem in this forum, so it is known problem. Some were able to fix it with adjustment of saturation settings in ATI color control panel. Unfortunately, my notebook is equipped with Intel 4500 MHD integrated graphic card, and somehow saturation control is missing in "color Correction" tab of "Intel Graphics Media Accelerator Driver for mobile" .

I did set up Dual boot with Vista/XP and the problem is the same in XP. Futhermore, over-saturation it is noticeable even in BIOS and during Windows start up.

Is my LCD (RGB LED) panel faulty? Graphic card drivers are raw? Video-BIOS is messed up? I this fixable or not?

I spent couple hours on the phone with Dell Technician trying to solve this problem. No luck so far...

As of now, I am thinking of returning this laptop. Such color reproduction is just not acceptable, considering that I paid $250 for the RGB LED, expecting close-to-perfect colors.

Dell :: Keyboards For Studio 1737

Feb 28, 2010

The keys on my Studio 1737 are very difficult to press. I'm a good touch typist, and this just requires way too much hammering to keep my speed up.

Same thing happened when I got my first Inspiron 1705, but I found out that there were multiple manufacturers for those keyboards. One of them made light touch, the other made very heavy touch (though not as bad as the 1737). Swapping the keyboard solved the problem.

Dell :: 19300 Replacement Studio 1737

Jul 8, 2009

Dell finally replaced my old system after 4MB replacements,3screen replacements,2 gpu replacements and a few other issues.

I love the new computer but have a few questions.

1) GPU. I received the ati 3650 replacing the 6800go. is the 3650 'better?' I checked on the internet and found that the 3650 only has 128m bit rate vs 256 for the 6800 go. Does this matter? the web had mixed results on this question(which is better). I like to play games and definately want to be able to play starcraft 2 when it is released on decent settings. I don't play any first person shooters.


2) can I put my old bluetooth card from the i9300 into this machiene? I believe the one I have is the 350.

3) I think my hard drive size is 250Gb. System shows: recovery partition size of 14.9GB and main partition of 217 gb. Where is the extra harddrive space? Does anyone know the maximum size hard drive this computer can take?

4) CPU - I have the intel t6600 2.2 GHz. Is this a decent processor? where does it fall in the scheme of processors for this computer? high,middle,low?

5) memory - how can I check the speed of my memory? I believe the FSB in this system is 800mhz. I want to make sure that I have memory that runs at least that fast and not 667 mhz.

Dell :: Graphics Card In Studio 1737

Sep 13, 2009

I recently purchased a Dell Studio 1737 for mainly college, everything about this laptop is great, except the graphics card, the infamous Intel Media Accelerator.

I would like to know if there's anyway to replace, or would I have to get another motherboard to replace it, and if I have to replace it I would like to know a estimate of how much it would be,

and personally I would like a high end Nvidia card =], not so much ATI.

Has anyone successfully installed Vista (any version) from scratch?

Did you have driver issues? Did everything work when you were done?

I plan on putting in a different HDD and trying the install just to see

Dell :: Studio 1737 Blurry Screen

Oct 3, 2009

I got a brand new Studio 1737 for my 18th Birthday in July, since then I've noticed that the screen often blurs and goes fuzzy when running applications that require even the most basic graphics (Solitare for example).

I called Dell, and they picked up the laptop, only to return it a week later saying nothing was wrong with it. Its still blurry.

Since then, I've installed Windows XP, Vista, 7, and even Linux (Xubuntu and Ubuntu). XP, and both Linux work fine, but Vista and 7 dont. its getting really frustrating. Any ideas of what to do?

Dell :: Studio 1737 Screen Does Not Turn On

Mar 16, 2010

I installed windows 7 ultimate today on my studio 1737. I first as always install the dell drivers and update windows.

I was told by a dell tech to flash the bios. When I did this, the bios froze right near the end of being complete. I waited for about 15 mins and nothing, not even the mouse moves.

So I pressed the power button and hold it for about 10 seconds and nothing. The only thing left for me to do was to pull the power cord and the batterie so the computer will turn off which of course did happen.

Dell :: Studio 1737 Freezing On Lid Closed

Jan 3, 2010

I decided to reinstall everything and make some hardware upgrades. Fisrt of all I upgraded BIOS, DVD firmware etc. Then I installed Win7x64 (proffesional), previously I had Ultimate RTM version.

After all almost everything is working fine. System is working great except one thing - something is wrong about power management. Sleep, hibernation and poweroff option is working ok. There is problem with lid only - when it's closed external monitor is turned off (that's ok) and main LCD is black (but backlited).

Music is still playing, but also that soon is gone (I always play that from Internet). Fans are working as usual, LCD is not completely turned off, music stops, keyboard is somehow working (i.e. Fn+F10 - dvd key), but I can't do anything with computer then.

The only thing that is working then it's holding down power button to turn off computer hard.

In power options I tried to change some options about lid. On plugged in - closing lid: do nothing .....

Sometimes there is only a blank screen and I can't do anything but unplug it and remove the battery so it'll start up again.

Should I be closing the top down or not?

Dell Studio 1737 :: HDD Password Frozen

(Same make and model HDD) In BIOS it shows both HDD's but the HDD "password is frozen", Supervisor is "clear". I set a password for supervisor and the HDD becomes "clear".   But it does not matter, you never see the second HDD in OS. I don't know if you should format the drive before you install or what. Seen other post on this matter, but it was the primary drive that was frozen...
