Dell :: Studio XPS 1640 & Hyper Memory

Aug 29, 2009

does anyone know how to disable the ati hypermemory? i recently got the 1640 with the 1gb radeon hd 4670 video card.

i noticed i have 2813mb of video memory. with that in mind, i know it's being shared with the system memory.

since i have 1gb of dedicated video memory, i'd rather not share with my system memory.

Dell :: Studio XPS 1640 Maximum Memory

Oct 5, 2009

What is the maximum amount of system memory I can throw into my XPS16? I have 4 GB in there now, however I thought when I built mine I could go up to 8. The reason I ask is because the system manual that came with my machine states that it can max out only at 4 (2x 2GB).

Acer :: Virtualization / Hyper-V On The Aspire 8920

Sep 17, 2008

I bought the Aspire 8920 from Best Buy here in Canada. You can view the specs of my configuration of the 8920 here.

I absolutely LOVE the laptop. I love high resolution; I love the Blu-ray drive; I love the 4Gigs of Ram; I love the 2 hard drives which give me almost 3/4 of a terabyte. Acer even sent me an additional power adapter and additional battery for FREE (I think the agent I was talking to was just having a good day). Everything about this laptop is awesome! Except one thing...

My configuration comes with the T5750 processor. It turns out that the T5750 doesn't support Intel Virtualization Technology. I've been intending on installing Windows Server 2008 as my primary OS so that I can use Hyper-V (I've heard great things about it, but I haven't really touched it too much yet), but I just found out that you MUST have a processor that either has Intel VT or AMD-V or else Hyper-V will not work. Currently I use VMWare Workstation for my VMs but I can't have any 64-bit guest OSs because of the same problem... my processor doesn't have VT. Don't ask me why I didn't research all this stuff BEFORE buying my new laptop... I'm still kicking myself for that.

So... onto my question(s). There are some configurations of the 8920 that have processors that support Intel VT (ie. T7500, T9500, etc.). I want to, again, upgrade to a machine that has a processor that I need... but I love the Aspire 8920 too much so I think I'm just going to get one of those higher configurations. However, there is a little problem. Intel VT comes turned off by default. The only way for it to be turned on is in the BIOS. I've read in several forums that a few manufacturers are either forgetting to add this BIOS setting or just not doing it at all.

Question 1) To anyone reading this who has an Aspire 8920 with a processor that supports Intel VT (Find out if your processor has VT support):
a) What processor do you have?
b) Do you know what configuration of the Aspire 8920 you have (ie. 8920-6671)?
c) Can you confirm if there is a "Virtualization" or "VT" setting in the BIOS?

Question 2) To anyone reading this that does a lot of virtualizing on their Aspire 8920:
a) What virtualization software are you using?
b) What guest OSs are you running and what are you using them for?
c) Do the VMs run well for you?

Question 3) Since were somewhat on the topic, is there anyone that has some experience with Hyper-V and virtualization under Windows Server 2008; and if so, what are you personal opinions on it compared to other virtualization solutions out there?

Lenovo ThinkPad W Series :: How To Enable Hyper-V

I have checked the BIOS settings. Intel Hyper-Thread technology is checked as enabled. When I try to turn on Hyper-V Platform in Control Panel, I am told that Virtualization support is disabled in firmware. I see nothing else in the BIOS menu to turn on. What am I missing?

Dell :: Studio XPS 1640 &

Jan 15, 2009

Suppose I purchase one today at full retail price. Then, in say a week, there's a 20% (or whatever) coupon that comes out, or they go on sale.

Can I call Dell and ask for the difference? I know they have a 21 (or whatever) day return policy, so I would imagine the sale or coupon would have to come within that time frame.

Another question: Does the return policy time begin when I order or when it ships or when I receive it? .

Just had my connection upgraded to 50Mb & when i connect my xps to it wirelessly i can only reach speeds of 20Mb.

I have a usb Wireless N external addaptor which gets me speeds of between 35 and 42Mb but its massive and quite unsightly.

Is it possible for me to install a wireless N adaptor to replace the one in this laptop or would i have to get a smart card slot deal?

Dell :: Studio 1555 Vs Xps 1640?

Jun 23, 2009

When configuring each machine as closely as possible, is the only real difference form factor? Is 1920x1080 on 15.6 vs 16 that big of a deal? Are there features in the 1640....

Dell :: Studio XPS 1640 Temperatures

Jun 22, 2009

Just got my new laptop 1/2 a week ago and installed a clean 7 on it. My idle temperatures are as follows:

Processor (T9800): ~43 degrees
ATI: ~48 degrees
HDD (500 GB 7200 RPM): ~40 degrees
Motherboard: ~44-50 degrees

This is at idle! When I game for a while, all temperatures hover at ~60 degrees. Is this normal?

My old laptop with a T5750 idles at 19 degrees for the processor, does the T9800 produce this much extra heat?

Also, if other 1640 users can post their specs and temperatures it'd be great.

Dell :: My Studio XPS 1640 Won't Start,

Feb 27, 2010

My studio XPS 1640 doesn't turn on. I can only see four touch buttons lit and everything else is off.

The only way to turn them off is by removing the battery and the moment I put it back they turn back on.

Using the AC adapter is the same, they remain on until I disconnect them. I attach a picture to show what I mean.

Dell :: Studio XPS 1640 Worth Getting Now?

Mar 8, 2009

A Dell Studio 1737 OR the Dell Studio XPS 1640? The Studio 1737 has been out longer for any problems to be fixed and whatnot and comes at a lower price. The Studio XPS 1640 has been out for just a couple of months and there are dozens of reports of BSOD's, heating issues, etc...

I would like to get the Studio XPS 1640, but generally I wait about 4-6 months after the product has been released before buying. There are talks about a built-in TV Tuner, but I haven't seen that on the Dell website. People are also saying Dell is going to upgrade the video card .....

Dell :: Studio XPS 1640 Add Blue Ray

Apr 14, 2009

I bought my 1640 refurbished and it had eveything I wanted except for Blue Ray. So to rectify this I went on a search for a Blue Ray that would fit - Dell wanted $389 for a refurb-

I found a a tear down picture and zoomed in to get the part number BC-5600S. I confirmed this with the service manual.


I found one on Ebay for $130 so I ordered it. Some of the other players out there have an eject button - the BC-5600S does not have a eject button.
Has any one done this upgrade and could offer some tips or advise?
Or am I going to be the guy that needs to do that for you?

Dell :: Studio XPS 1640 How Do I Set It To Prefer 802.11a Over 802.11g?

Apr 13, 2010

I'm trying to figure out how to set it to prefer 802.11a over 802.11g when both are offered in an area. I am usually in areas where 802.11g is completely clogged and 802.11a is totally free.

I have it set for 802.11a/g only, but it keeps defaulting to 802.11g and never goes to a unless a is the only thing offered. The only way I can get it to go to 802.11a is if I set it to 802.11a only.

I do a lot of roaming, and 802.11a is not offered everywhere so it is annoying to have to constantly go into the device manager and change it from 802.11a only to 802.11a/g.

My card is an Intel Wifi Link 5100 AGN. Does anyone know how to get it to prefer 802.11a over g when they are both offered? There seems to be no option to do it like most cards do. I recently updated the drivers to the latest version, too
