Dell :: Studio 1747 TV Tuner

Apr 4, 2010

I purchased a Studio 1747 from Dell online. On the left side, I have a tv tuner port.

I have tried hooking up an antenna but Windows Media Center does not detect a tv tuner on this laptop.

Is there something I'm doing wrong? or did dell not install the tuner? or is it a dummy port?

Dell :: Studio XPS 1645 / Studio 1747 Wireless Configs

Dec 3, 2009

Does anyone have any idea why? Is this something affecting Dell globally or is it just UK/Europe in a mess?

I guess I could survive with just wireless G, but it seems ridiculous to be limited to that these days;

I guess I could also just order it and pick up an intel/dell Wireless N card for ~£25 and install it myself,

but again the question arises, why is it necessary? I assume some of you do have an 802.11n card of some description in your 1645/1747's have you seen any problems with it? .....

Dell :: Studio XPS 1645 Or Studio 1747 ???

Nov 6, 2009

I'm university student and ntb is meant to be carried almost daily (16" is ok for me), it's mainly for multimedia oriented jobs, some programming in C and Mathematica, some photoshop or even premiere (occasionaly), A LOT of movie watching. I also want it to be futureproof and well-built.

Dell XPS 1645 meets most of my criteria, but there are few things I'm unsure about...
1) after reading a couple of reviews and many posts on this forum I'm really doubtful if RGB-LED is worth the extra money. I'm not doing colour sensitive job (however I do sometimes edit RAW images in PS), but i want things on the display to look natural, especially in FullHD movies... (and I'm occasional gamer too)

Those who had honor to work with RGB-LED: would you pay for it in my position???

And just to make sure I haven't overlooked something: biggest DISadvantages of RGB-LED are supposed to be: inaccurate colors, bigger power consumption and some heat produced;
while advantages should be: 0,4" gain in size, wider gamut and (maybe) better brightness...

Do you know any more to be added?

2) I'm also considering usual Studio 17 with Core i7 720QM (almost the same config), because it should be cooler, it has numpad and place for additional hdd (I'd buy 80GB intel ssd 34nm for system while keeping stock 500GB for data, I think it's beatiful idea), but what I DISlike about studio 17 is: dimensions, weight, speakers and design (and maybe a bit worse overal built quality).

So which one do you think is better for me?

3) how does combined e-sata/usb work? Since I have a external e-sata drive I have to plug 2 cables at the moment: USB for power and e-sata... With this 2-in-1 port do I need only 1 special cable? Or is it meant to be either/or thing??? From the placement of combined e-sata/usb on the opposite side of ntb than other USBs I'd say that 1 cable should be enough,

Dell :: Studio 1747 Vs. 1749

May 4, 2010

This is for the Dell USA site as of 5/6/2010....any other countries and/or times YMMV

There are some notable differences between the 1747 and 1749 being offered via the Dell Studio 17 selector

1749:

ATI 5650
i3-350M, i5-430M, i5-520M (No i5-540M or i7-620M. No Quad Core Options)
1066 memory (Makes sense since dual core i3,i5,i7's only support up to 1066 memory)
9-Cell battery as default option
1yr Warranty default
1080P "RGBLED" panel Description/Product Code = DH1080F / 320-8968

1747:

ATI 4650
i7-720QM, i7-820QM (No dual core options at all)
1333 memory support
9-Cell battery as default option
2-yr warranty default (No 1 yr option)
1080P "B+RG" panel Description/Product Code = CH1080F / 313-8043

Blue Ray RW drives are now an option for both @ $150.00
Intel 6200/6250 options are available for both

I'm definitely curious about the panel changes along with system board revisions to see if the 1749 supports Quad Core CPUs.

Dell :: Inspiron 1720 VS Studio 1747

May 25, 2010

After putting up with countless BSOD's and failed harddrives on the Inspiron 1720, they send me a refurbished Studio 1747. Bigger hard drive space, HD screen, and twice the ram are very enticing to keep this machine. But the Inspiron's GPU AND CPU processors are faster (compare Intel Core i7 720QM processor and ATI Mobility Radeon 4650 graphics to the dual 2.0GHz centrino duo nvidia geforce 8600m GT). And I also found it silly that they would include an HD screen but not a blue-ray disc reader. So since DELL told me over the warranty phone line that they would "match the specs of your [my] old computer," should I just keep this or run some benchmarks on some games and figure this out? I don't want to spend more time on this if I have to if it is common knowledge that I got a good ad deal.

edit: forgot to add that the studio runs windows 7 64bit and inspiron is running w7 32 bit

Dell :: Studio 1747 Delivery Problems?

Jan 3, 2010

2 years ago i ordered a Vostro 1700 that took ages to arrive because of i think back then screen supply problems.

Now we ordered a few new Studio 1747 with the Core i7 820 procs the order date was 1 December.. But now i got a mail that the delivery date is pushed back to 17 of February!! Wooot???

It seems that dell is many times just saying that you can order new systems but most of the time they can deliver one bit?

Its orderd from dell.nl, how are other orders doing in Europa? Are the 1747 with the Core i7 being delivered in the states?

Dell :: Keyboard Prob. W/ Studio 1747

Dec 20, 2009

I've been getting this weird problem with the 'M' key on my keyboard.

It randomly doesn't acknowledge a keystroke. And it's completely intermittent. I'll just notice that an M is missing from my messages or from a URL.

Latest BIOS and Chipset upgrades are installed, that's what Dell Support told me to do. And then nothing.

I really don't want to send my laptop in, it's always such a hassle.

Any ideas? I know if I wait long enough I can just replace the keyboard off of Ebay if it's the hardware that's the problem.

Dell Studio 1747 :: Auto-Scroll On Synaptic TouchPad

Jul 9, 2010

My computer is the dell 1747 Studio Laptop running Windows 7 Professional.  It has the built-in Synaptics Touch Pad.  When you drag your finger on the far right side of the pa, it auto scrolls through the document on the screen.

I use  my Laptop almost exclusively with a remote desktop connection.  I process large documents (some as many as 200 pages).  If I accidentally drag my hand or finger up or down on the left side of the touch pad, it begins to scroll.  Since it is a remote desktop connection, it will not stop scrolling until it reaches the end of the document either up or down.  I have to sit and wait for it to finish scrolling before I can use the computer again.

I would like to know how to turn OFF auto scrolling on the touch pad.  There is a "wheel" setting in the device setup menu but you can only turn it down to "1" not "zero".

Dell :: Studio 1745, 1747, 1749 Backlit Keyboard Aftermarket?

Apr 20, 2010

I just bought a Studio 1749 with a Dutch US international keyboard. The US backlit keyboard is the only backlit one and not an option here.
The only difference is the missing Ä symbol at key number 5, for which I don't care so much.

Now I'm trying to find the US backlit keyboard at eBay or Amazon without success. Is there a way to find one aftermarket and get it shipped to Europe?

Dell Studio 1747 :: Not Booting / No Display - With External Screen Works Fine

Nov 30, 2012

my studio 1747 (not in warranty) (i7 win7),has stopped booting anymore it was working fine till last week ( occasionally my screen does flick in last coupon of month), So when I do turn my system on all upper volumn light flashes from left to right and then right to left and then system turn off itself, during that period screen show no display.

connecting external monitor (TV via hdmi) does work and system boots fine show display on external monitor but no display on system LCD. Something display flicks on external montor also, it happens when my laptop LCD tries to display something (i.e. sometime laptop LCD flicks and sometime it display for few seconds and then go back to Black screen). Also when connect external monitor my mouse pad stops work and sometime works when I connect usb mouse, but when LCD screen start display something, mouse pad also starts work.I tried all stuff, whatever I could find on internet as below  

1) Taking battery off and press power button for 1 min.  
2)  Hold 'D' key and then press power button LCD sometime show some color and then goes back to black.  
3) Removed battery and CMOS battery to total drain of charges.  
4) Removed keyboard panel and checked LCD display cable and make sure its not loose.

To me it seems like motherboard, graphic card are fine as system is working on external monitor, LCD screen also looks fine as sometime is display and not greying out (its either Black-out or display). As I have also checked cable is properly attached with motherboard, so it can't be loose connection. Don't understand why LCD works sometime.

Dell :: 1747 Graphics Question

Jan 10, 2010

To start off, im looking into buying a notebook within the price range of under $1800, and found the studio 1747.

It had all that i needed, core i7, 1tb harddrive (free upgrade option in canada) 6gb of ram (when you upgrade) but lack luster graphics, the ati mobility 4650. I was looking for a notebook with atleast a 5870 mobility but couldnt find any in the specified price range.

My question is, is it possible to swap out a 4650 with a 5870? on desktops as long as there is adequate power you can, but i think the power consumption might be too much. If that is the case, can any one point me in the right direction for a better notebook?

Sorry to bother folks with this nuisance, however, I updated my ATI Mobility Radeon 4650 drivers via Dell's website to 8.65 and ever since, the Catalyst Control Center refuses to run. I politely click on it, the machine thinks for a while and then, rather rudely, simply ignores my request.

Dell :: XPS 1640 Tv Tuner

Jun 5, 2009

If I chose not to get the tuner card in the system when I customise it, does it not have the ugly rubber port on the left hand side? Now that they have started charging for the tuner I think it's better off me just getting a usb tuner because then it frees up slots inside and I can take it out whenever I want and use it on any computer.

Dell :: General TV Tuner Question For SXPS 16

Jun 7, 2009

So i did a little searching about TV Tuners, but i'm still a little bewildered on the topic. I basically need someone to clear up some questions I have about TV tuners. Here are a few questions:

What channels do the "antennas" that come with some tuners pick up? The same as good ol fashion bunny ears would?

If I just had a coaxial cable coming from the wall or cable box (and a functioning cable outlet) could i just connect that to the tv tuner (with the right converter) and get the basic cable channels that you would if you connected that coaxial cable straight to a tv?
