Acer :: Ferrari Wallpaper
"Upgraded" one of my acer laptops to Vista from XP and now the beautiful Ferrari wallpaper doesn't function properly. I moved the folder from a different (XP) machine onto the Vista one, and it almost works. If I double-click the "FerrariWP.exe" file, the wallpaper shows up and with the correct date - however it never updates and it stays on the same day. If I uninstall and double-click again-everything is ok until the next day

My guess is that there is a slightly different version needed for Vista, and since Acer did ship many of these laptops with Vista preinstalled, there has to be (Ok, I'm hoping there is) a version floating around somewhere that is Vista-compatible.

Not the end of the world, but I've gotten really used to having that great looking calendar on the desktop and I'm not ready to give it up yet..

Dell :: Audio Latency /Solutions With All Studio & Studio XPS
Recently i ordered a Dell Studio XPS and like many of you with dell's,my main use was to be for audio production,dj'ing or any sort of thing pertaining to music.After ordering and then reading up online,ALOT of people are having problems getting the latency and/or pops skips & jumps out of their sound source.

Some say the problems lie within the Lan card,some say video card.And most importantly,Dell does not have an answer to the problem because they are not trained to understand audio type situations(Unfortunately).So...Here is where we are going to solve this thing(or try really hard because besides that...these are prett good laptops otherwise) Once i get mine in the next 3 days,im going to tell you what i did because i WILL fix it or at least try hard and fail.

Dell :: Studio XPS 1645 / Studio 1747 Wireless Configs
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 :: Should I Return My Studio 1745 (C2D T9600) For The Studio 17 With I7 CPU?
Right around black friday I ordered a Dell studio with the following specs listed below. It was $1778 with $649 off making an OTD price of $1212 shipped.

I see the I7 is out & I dont believe that was an option for the laptop either. There was also the 20% bing cashback deal which removes another 220 from the price (I dont quite get the math myself but hey).

I am looking at a Studio I7 with the same price but a 3rd year warranty vs my 2nd .....

Dell :: Studio 1569 ( Studio S15z-2249CPN) Best Buy Blue Label CNET Review
What I found quite interesting in the cnet review is that their performance testing of the Dell 1569 was second place just behind the Toshiba E205-S1904 (the other Best Buy Blue Label). I do not understand why, the specs are basically the exact same specs, EXCEPT our Dell has a 500gb 7,200rpm hard drive while the Toshiba has a 500gb 5,400 rpm hard drive. I would think, if anything our performance would be slightly better than the Toshiba because of our 7,200rpm hard drive. All the other specs are the same.

So, with that being said, why did the Toshiba have slightly better performance numbers than ours, since as I keep stating all the specs are the same except we have a faster hard drive?

Dell :: Studio And Studio XPS Laptops, Who Are They For And What Are The Primary Differences?
I'm interested in purchasing one of these two. Probably 15'' for the Studio or the 16'' for the Studio XPS.

I'm just a bit confused as to what the target users are, they seem very similar. From what I can see, the Studio XPS just has a better exterior and a superior display.

I intend to use the laptop for document editing, media (HDMI out to hdtv, most likely) and casual gaming. Price range is about 1300 CAD.

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

Which one is better? I know the sxps 16 is better in terms of video & larger/better screen (e.g., performance & rgb led).

But, the sxps 13 is cheaper and better in weight (much lighter than the 16) and could be still perfect for anyone doing school works and even video editing and games .....

Dell :: Studio Xps 13 Or Studio 14z, Opinions?
trying to figure out which one is the better buy for me. I am looking for a laptop for mobility, graphics, and battery, pretty much like everyone else.

The studio 14z seems to be a little smaller and lighter than the xps 13.

14z also suppose to have a 6 hour battery life with 8 cell. better than xps 13

The xps 13 has a 9500m vs the 9400, but i heard thats only for conserving battery, or does it outperform the 9400

Dell :: Studio 15 Or Studio XPS 13?
Looking for some help deciding between the Studio 15 and Studio XPS 13. With my school discount, they come within $20 of each other, spec'd the way I want, so price does not factor in.

The laptop will be used primarily for word processing, Internet, and old (non-3D) games so I would elect to take a 2.1 GHz Core 2 Duo and the standard integrated graphics on each.

Reasons I am drawn to the XPS model is it is lighter and more portable, looks a lot nicer, has a better backlight (inlcuding trackpad buttons), and is supposed to be much sturdier.

I still like the 15 because it has much better audio and speakers (+sub), supposedly stays cooler than the 13 (which is important since I want to use it as a LAPtop), and offers a matte screen option which I would prefer over the glossy in the 13 .....

Dell :: Studio XPS 1645 Vs Studio XPS 1647
I am looking to get a Studio XPS 16 soon, but can't quite decide on which model to get and had a few questions...

1) What is the battery life of the 1647 (i5) compared to the 1645 (i7) assuming they have the same specs. I've read that i5's should last longer, but I really couldn't find anything comparing the two for these systems.

2) When configuring the 1645 and 1647 side-by-side with the same specs. The 1647 is about the same price as the 1645, if not more (depending on which processor selected). I thought the i5's were supposed to be less expensive than the i7's. Since they are about the same price, would it be better to go with the i7? Any reason to choose the i5 over i7?

Studio:: Studio 15 Motherboard
I bought my Studio direct from Dell. When i called they said that they couldnt add my thumbprint scanner, so they upgraded me from 2GB ram to 4GB, 250GB hdd to 320GB, and from the T5800 processor to the T8100.

My question is what motherboard do you think I am going to be getting becuase the T5800 and T8100 cant both fit the same kind of motherboard, so what are they doing? The T8100 isnt an option if you go online and configure it so I'm wondering what is going on

No complaints though... lets see thumbprint scanner, 2x ram and better cpu...

Dell :: Some Studio XPS ?s Difference Between XPS And Studio XPS
I was intrested in a new Notebook to replace my Dell Inspiron 700m

I bought an Dell XPS 2 years ago and returned it because I did not like the keyboard and VISTA. The keyboard keys were weird to me. They had no grip, felt too plasticy, hard to explain.

Does the studio xps have different type of keys? or the same keys as the basic studio?

Also whats the difference between the old XPS and the new Studio XPS?

Can I get an Intel Wifi card in it, on dells configuration it won't let me.

Overall what do you guys think of the 13 inch model?

Dell :: STUDIO: 15 Vs 17
I'm really interested in buying a DELL STUDIO Laptop, but I'm not sure of getting the 15'' or the 17''... I don't really care if the 17'' is bigger, I'm not like going to be moving from here to there with the laptop so thats ok...

I also think the video card (Readon 3650) from the 17'' is much better than the one that comes with the studio 15 (Readon 3450)...

What do you think? Is that video card worth having a bigger machine?

What other contras can the studio 17 have...? more noise? more heat? is there any known issue with de STUDIO 17 that may not be present in the STUDIO 15 ?

Dell :: Considering Studio 15
This is my first thread after recently joining this forum. I am considering purchasing a pair of Studio 15s for my wife and I. I have been researching this purchase for about a month. At first I was looking at the HP DV5T until I read reviews about how hot they get. Then I stumbled onto a positive review of the Studio 15. I've gone through the owners thread and read the reviews here and on other sites. What really has given me pause was looking at reviews on Best Buy's web site where the Studio 15 got a 2.6 rating out 5 after 34 reviews. It seems the common theme is that this system suffers crashes and can't always be restored after preforming the first automatic Windows update. Is this a known issue with the Studio 15? Are there any problems with this system other than the poor speakers I should be aware of? I would really appreciate any thoughts, experiences or recommendations from owners. Dell is offering a good deal until 12/14 on the Studio 15 with the T5900 Processor, 3GB of RAM, 320GB HD, ATI 3250 etc for $699 and I like some feedback before pulling the trigger. I'm trying to avoid buyer's remorse.

Dell :: Recommendations For Studio 15
I think I am finally going to replace my Inspiron 6000 with a Studio 15. I haven't really kept up on the new technology, so I'd like to know what I should look for and what would be the best bang for my buck.

Dell :: Studio 15. Your Opinions Please?
So im thinking of getting a Studio 15 with this configuration:

Intel® Core™ i5-540M (2.53Ghz, 4 Thread, turbo boost up to 3.06 GHz, 3MB cache)
Windows® 7 Home Premium, 64bit, English
4096MB 1333MHz Dual Channel DDR3 SDRAM [2x2048]
1GB ATI Mobility Radeon™ HD5470 Graphics Card
500GB (5400RPM) Serial ATA Hard Drive
DVD +/- RW Drive (read/write CD & DVD) with DVD Burn software
Dell Wireless 1397 Mini Card (802.11 b/g)
1 year of coverage included with your PC
2Yr In-Home Warranty Support, including evenings and Saturdays
Dell Wireless 365 Bluetooth Module - European
Primary 6-cell 56 WHr Lithium Ion battery
Camera 2.0 Mega pixel Integrated Web Camera
Midnight Blue with Microsatin Finish
15.6in Widescreen Full High Definition (1920 x 1080) WLED with TrueLife
TOTAL Incl. VAT:£866.63

But the things im most interested in are things like the build quality, heat and noise output and also the weight of the notebook, what does everyone think of these things? I owned an Inspiron 1520 which I always thought I looked after well, kept it well maintained etc but literally as soon as my 1 year warranty ended, the thing broke! So i'd really, really like to avoid a similar situation again (especially as spending £850 on a laptop is a lot of money to me)

Dell :: Studio 15 Or Xps 16
XPS16 or Studio 15


I am planning to buy an new laptop for home (games,video,music and ect.) and considering two options:
Dell xps 16, i-7 core 720QM (1,6ghz, 6mb cache), full HD LCD 1080p with true life, 4096MB 1333Mhz memory, 500GB hardrive, 9cell baterry, 1GB ATI HD 4670 videocard, +bluetooth (999£)

Dell Studio15 (1558), i-7 core 720QM (1,6ghz, 6mb cache), 4096MB 1333Mhz memory, 500GB hardrive, 1 GB ATI HD 5470 video, 9cell baterry, Full HD LCD 1080p Wled with truelife, =bluetooth (900£)

As you can see both xps and studio can have the same tech. spec. So it is hard for me to choose wich one is better. I red a lot of reviews about them. And can tell some advantage of each of them.

Dell studio 15 advantages:

1. A bit cheaper

2. Runs better Windows 7 operating system. (Dell studio xps was built for vista operating system but also can run windows 7, but older models has some problems with it)

3. Has more upgrade options then xps (dont know if it is advantage because xps was built as high performance laptop meanwhile studio 15 as medium performance laptop but after some upgrades from dell company we now have a studio 15 which you can upgrade to high performance.)

4. Newer model laptop then xps16

5. Doesnt have so many overheating problems then xps16. (At least medium performance studio 15, dont know how about high performance, anybody knows how it is with overheating for studio 15 with intel - i7)

XPS 16 advantages:

1. Style

2. Sound system

3. Video card ATI 4670 slightly better than ATI 5470 for games. But both are not the best cards for gaming. I called to dell and told them next time to release a laptop for home with better video card options. Because it doesnt make sence when you have to choose between 512MB and 1GB crap.

4. I heard that xps 16 LCD 1080p is better than upgraded Studio 15 LCD with same tech. spec.(full HD, 1080p, truelife). Dont know if its trueth.

So can anybody tell wich one i should buy. Especialy who uses these laptops can you give me advice. i dont want a gaming laptop because i hate alien W. design. I need a high quality, good performance, nice laptop for a good price.

is the studio 17 really that heavy that it is a burden to carry even for half a day. im asking because it is my first laptop and i may need to take it into uni on the odd occasions, probably once or twice a semester, if i really needed it.

should i give up the mike ming custom cover and just go with an xps M1530, or should i just suck it up if i'm only going to take it into uni a few times if the need be.

Dell :: Studio 15: Fn + F3 And F1 Keys Not Doing What They Should
i've had my beautiful studio 15 for about 2 weeks now.

It runs awesome except the fan runs a lot sometimes.


For some reason, the hotkeys: Fn+F3 (for battery) and Fn+F1 (for sleep mode) don't do anything at all.........the Fn+F10 for the eject disc seems to work fine....

also....I am wondering, what is the latest bios update for my system?

Dell :: Studio 15 Fan
I did my bios update on my studio 15, I have had some issues with the fan (which is pretty much since I got the thing). Sometimes it runs normal, I use the computer, fan turns on in its "low" mode, making just the light hum that you can barely hear, if I game, it turns onto medium, etc etc. But sometimes (more often than not really) the fan just turns on and stays on its HIGHEST speed, nonstop, to the point where my cpu temp has actually dropped as low as 28 degrees with the fan still running non stop. Its the main fan, on the back left that keeps running. But, there seems to be a slight solution. If I life the left side, specifically the left side, corner closer to me, the fan eventually stops, the computer runs normal and all.. just as long as I keep that corner lifted. If I even place my hand on the underside of the computer there, the fan turns on again, full blast. Now, I know this could be crappy sensors, or it could be my power management system (vista's default one i think)... But I'm wondering if anyone has any ideas, since I would rather not have to send it back for 2 weeks just so they can change a stupid sensor.

Dell :: Got A Studio, Formatting
Wife and I picked up a Dell Studio 15 tonight, so we FINALLY have a laptop in the house. The catch is, it's in the box till the 24th. So, I've seen the sticker on the box that says there's a free evaluation copy of Norton something or other installed on there, and that's enough to make me want to format the thing as soon as it powers on for the first time..

My question is, whats on that restore disk? I think that was already answered here, that it's the same old crap that's already on the machine, but I'm wondering about the file structure. Is it Vista in one folder and all the crap in others, or is it just like an image so there's no way to install just Vista?

Second, I have Vista Business, so I could just use it, but the Studio comes with Home Premium. Assuming there's no 'just Vista Home' install option, is there at least a key in the box or somewhere in the registry of the laptop that I can use to install just Vista if I download it from the net somewhere?

Dell :: Studio 15 What Are The Common
I'm looking for a new notebook and the Studio 15 looks good, although I've read a few reports about issues and wanted to see what the 'current' revision of the Studio 15 coming out of Dell were like.

Previous issues I've seen reference to are:
- Low speaker quality
- Touchpad is erratic
- Volume control has little 'in between' and sometimes resets itself

I'd appreciate it if anyone can point out in a mature way if there are other inherit problems with this model...

Also I'd prefer to run Windows XP - is there enough community support to allow XP to be installed with all key devices (video, audio, network, hotkeys) functioning?

Dell :: Studio XPS 15?
Has anyone heard if Dell will release the Studio XPS in a 15.4" size? I would love to see one in that size with a WXGA+ 1400x900 resolution.
