Dell :: To Upgrade Studio 1735 Hard Drives

Jul 31, 2009

I have a Studio 1735 with 2 X 250GB HDD's... but this is not enough for me. Is it possible to upgrade them to 500GB HDD's each or even 2 x 1TB drives?

If so what type of hard drive do I need and can you provide links?

This would be great as I do not want another external HDD & plus I need to reinstall Vista...too much crap on my laptop now and it frequently hangs / freezes / slow boot load etc

Dell :: Studio 1735 / Authentic Finger Print Reader Drivers And Windows 7 X64 Upgrade

Nov 28, 2012

I did an upgrade from win vista x32 to win 7 x64 on my Dell Studio 1735.   In order to do that upgrade I did change the HDD to a 1 TB and update from 3GB to 4GB ram.

Now I have on item still not working after that upgrade.    The integrated biometric (fingerprint reader) refuse to work.  Windows 7 x64 did detect that it was an Authentec device, and installed it driver.

But If I installe the software for the reader.  It refuse to install and give this as the reason (No driver installed for the reader)   I've tried to replace the windows driver with the original Authentec drivers, but windows 7 replace the drivers with it's own.

Any windows 7 drivers out there for my Authentec integrated device ?

I need help deciding which HD drives to order on my new m1730.

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.

Dell :: Studio 1735 GPU BIOS

Jan 8, 2009

So the story is, the HD3650 is underclocked on the 1735's from 600mhz to 450mhz.
I'm having no luck saving the original BIOS from the GPU so I can use RBE to overclock.

I'd be up for a copy of a successfully oc'd BIOS file also, 600mhz core.
Tried Vista and XP, atiflash, winflash, gpu-z, none of them can save the BIOS for some reason...

Dell :: Studio 1735 Touchpad

Mar 26, 2009

i have had this refurblished laptop for a few months now and recently it has developed a problem. When the touchpad plays up it will not respond and occasionaly will jump all over the place making it impossible to use.

It has been doing this for a few weeks usually about once a day which i thought was completley random, although about 5 minutes ago I discovered unplugging the charger solves the problem.

Dell Studio 1735 :: Won't Power Up

Jan 1, 2015

My mom has a Dell Studio 1735 and when she tried to turn it on she says it maade a weird noise. I checked it and it doesn't power on at all. I cheked the power supply and it seems ok. The battery is fully charged.

When trying to turn it on the power button flashes quickly 3 times a long pause and sometimes it flashes a once very long and other times it flashes 10 short bursts.

No other light comes on. I've removed the battery and tried turning it on, but the same.

Sony :: Hard Drives Possible In Z

Apr 25, 2009

how many hard drives could fit in the Vaio Z, because on the SonyStyle site when configuring the HD's and choosing for example 256GB SSD it shows 2x128GB SSD. Does this mean 2x SSD hard drives? If so then I'm wondering why they don't make the option available to put in 2x256GB SSD's. Also, if 2 SSD's are possible, are 2 standard 2,5" spinning HD's possible?

Dell :: 5 Failed Hard Drives In 4 Months! New XPS 1530

Nov 23, 2008

I bought an XPS 1530 four months ago. I went through 4 hard drives - one would fail, Dell would send a replacement ... that was the cycle. After #4 Hard Drive failed (and a tech came out to try and replace the motherboard & hard drive without success), I finally got them to agree to a "System Exchange"..

They sent me a new XPS 1530 - within 2 days the Hard Drive died! (#5)..

Anyone have any ideas (besides bad luck) of what could cause 5 failed hard drives in two different brand new systems?..

Electrical? I used the laptop at home and at my office. My office is a rented space inside another company's building.

I thought maybe electrical, but I use my old laptop their (Dell Inspiron 6000) and it has been fine. Unless something electrical causes a problem in the XPS only for some specific reason.

I have no idea, but does anyone have any "out of the box" explanations for me?

Dell is sending me a box so I can mail this 2nd laptop in to the Dell Depot for inspection and repair. My faith in the XPS 1530 is zero.

Any ideas or advice?

Dell :: Which Hard Drives Will Work In A Vostro 1700

Jan 17, 2009

I have two seperate questions to ask, so will post them seperately.

I have a Vostro 1700 with a 250gb drive in it. When I bought it I had a problem with the laptop and managed to get a hard drive caddy free from Dell, so just need the drive. I know it needs to be a SATA 2.5 drive, but will any drive fit, or do I need to go for any specific ones? Is the Vostro SataII?

Dell :: Studio 1735's ATi 3650 Performance

Sep 18, 2008

I got myself a shiny 1735. I'm not a big gamer, but I wanted something that could play the odd game and specifically World of Warcraft. With this in mind (and the fact that I've never yet met an integrated graphics solution that didn't suck so hard that Dyson wanted to patent it), I went with the ATi Radeon Mobility HD 3650 gfx upgrade. I've never been a fan of ATi so it wouldn't have been my first choice of card, but given that it's about the same choice as the vegetarian "option" in restaurants (ie, take it, or go hungry) I figured it was worth a punt.

Got WoW installed and played about with settings. To cut a long story short, it looks absolutely gorgeous and will happily fling the game about with all the settings ramped up to max at 1920x1200. But.

WoW seems to run... I'm struggling for the exact word, but it's "choppy". When you're running / flying, the terrain isn't smooth, it kinda jerks past in quick bursts. It doesn't feel like the card is struggling per s, it's like the sort of thing that you'd expect to be fixed in a driver update.

I grabbed the latest Catalyst drivers from ATi (8.8). They appear to install fine, along with the control centre which is missing from the stock Dell install, but it doesn't actually appear to update the drivers from 8.4. Presumably this is down to it being a laptop adapter rather than a discrete ATi card, but I've not as yet come up with a workaround to make it install though I'm sure it's possible. Anyway.

I took a closer look at the graphics card. The stock 3650 from ATi runs at 600MHz core, 500MHz RAM. yet the adapter supplied by Dell appears to be underclocked, the memory is the same speed but the core is running at just 450MHz.

Experimenting with ATiTool, I can reclock the card to run at ATi stock speeds of 600/500. At this speed it runs rock solid stable under extended load, with no discernable thermal issues that I can immediately make out. Overclocking it much past this almost immediately crashes the laptop so I can't recommend taking it much out of spec, for the sake of a couple of MHz it's just not worth the risk / hassle, but at 600 core it's solid. I can only assume that Dell have underclocked it to improve battery life, I can't see any other reason for such a large crippling.

Clocking the card 'properly' and switching off Full Screen Glow in WoW has gone a long way towards rectifying the choppiness, but I can see that it's still not "right". I've not yet played with other resolutions or tried any other games so I don't know if I'm just asking too much in terms of graphics RAM or if it's specifically a WoW issue but I'm going to carry on fiddling with it. Short of persevering with hacking the Catalyst 8.8 drivers though, I'm not entirely sure where else I can go with this. In the grand scheme of things it's not a huge issue, it's just irritating that my shiny new toy isn't quite the beast I was expecting when I bought it.

Dell :: Different Graphic Card For Studio 1735

Dell :: Studio 1735 Upgrading And Overclocking

Jul 13, 2009

I bought my 1735 about a year ago, and since I skimped a bit on the order, I'm wondering about buying some upgrades and/or overclocking.

I currently have a 1735 with C2D T5750 at stock clock speed, 4GB of PC2-5300 RAM, 2 hard drives and the Radeon 3650.

Is it worth it to buy a better processor? I can't find many places that sell them (just Newegg and NCIX), and $250 seems a bit steep for a P8600.

Is the P8600 even compatible with my 1735's PM965 chipset? I'm getting conflicting reports of 1066 FSB CPUs being compatible with my laptop.

The T9300 CPU will be compatible for sure, but I can't really find a (reputable) vendor.

Dell :: Studio 1735 ..guess There's No XP Drivers For It

Aug 17, 2008

New owner of a Dell Studio 1735 that came loaded with ( of course) WIndows Vista. I was told by the rep at Dell that sold it to me " oh yeah, you can get the XP drivers for it".....yeah right!!

I was able to create a slipstream Windows XP install CD that loads SP2 files and the SATA HDD drivers to avoid the BSOD that I got initially in trying to load XP..so far so good I thought.

Ran Vistaboot to dual boot but that corrupts the NTLDR and I cannot dual boot into anyting but VISTA as I get the message statingthe NTLDR is either missing or corrupted . If I run a repair and then type FIXBOOT , I can then get back into XP.., but of course..., no longer can boot into VISTA ( no big loss but it would have been nice ) and only have XP.

I cannot find the XP drivers for audio , video ( ATI Mobility Radeon 3650 ) or wireless and an UNKNOWN DEVICE. I've looked and looked,but incredibly there seems to be no XP drivers for these devices.

I just feel that Dell has the XP drivers for these devices but somehow is just not releasing them. It's really unfair to be "locked" into one OS ( which , by the way...sucks!) and feel like a idiot for believing the sales rep.

Dell :: Studio 1735 & Win 7 Drivers Needed

Oct 21, 2009

i'd like to install Windows 7 on my Studio 1735.

Questions are:

- Do i have to install the, quite old, Dell Notebook System Software driver?

- Do i have to install the (Vista) Chipset drivers from the Dell Download page or can i download the newer ones from Intel.com? If yes to the latter, which one do i need?

- What about the ATI HD 3650 Video drivers, should i use the , old, ones'from the Dell Download page or can i find newer ones from ATI?

- can i just use the drivers delivered with Win 7 only and use Windows update for some uninstalled devices?

Unfortunately, Dell only provides Vista drivers, there will be no Win7 for the 1735.

What are your experiences on installing Win7 on a Studio 17(35), by the way?

Dell :: Studio 1735 Touchpad- Synaptics Or Alps?

Mar 8, 2009

My touch pad driver recently stopped working the other day. I had not noticed because I always use my VX Nano, but I was out of the house with the laptop for once and had no pointing device when I booted up.

I re-downloaded the Synaptics driver that I had installed previously, but it didn't work. I had to install the Dell driver to get it to work, but on install I noticed it saying it was an Alps, not a Synaptics.

What gives with this? I even remember seeing other posts on here saying to forgo the Dell driver when installing windows and to use the Synaptics driver............................

Dell :: Remote Control Under Windows XP In A Studio 1735

Apr 14, 2009

I contact you because I bought a Dell Studio 1735 a while ago and since I dont like Windows Vista I changed the OS to XP. Reading this forum I managed to make everything work, Wifi, TouchPad, Video, Sound which was a Sound Blaster Audigy not the one that comes in the Std Studio model and everything else BUT the remote control.

I installed the drivers for the IR port from [url]and it says the device is working properly, yet the remote is not functional.

Has anyone been able to make the device work under XP?

Dell :: Studio 1735, Keyboard Lag/stuck In WoW/Games

Oct 5, 2008

I've been trying to play WoW on my new Studio 1735, but I'm having issues with the Keyboard. If I, for example, press the "S" key, hold it and hit the "A" key next (do this very fast a couple of times) the keys will get stuck and I see my character going left all the time until I hit the "A" key once more.

This also happens with any of the directonial keys.

Is anyone else having this problem here? I've been browing the Dell Comunity forums and I'm not alone with this one. I've seen this "bug" reported on Windows XP/Vista and even Linux systems, so I'm guessing it's a BIOS issue.

I haven't found a solution yet, so if anyone has one, I'm allready running the latest A04 Bios.

Dell :: Studio 1735 XP Drivers COMPLETE WORKING SET

Oct 2, 2008

I have finally managed to compile a complete set of drivers for Windows XP Professional, seeing as Dell don't provide any for that OS.

So far, everything's been running fine for me. The graphics driver resets occasionally (just like it does on Vista) but doesn't seem to cause any problems.

I'm just glad to get rid of Vista - that was horrid!

The .zip I've compiled is 354MB

It contains the following drivers:

- Intel Chipset
- RICOH Flash Media Controller
- IDT Audio
- LAN
- Wireless LAN
- Bluetooth
- Infra-red
- AMD HDMI Audio
- Touchpad
- Webcam
- Graphics (Catalyst 8.9 - modified using Mobility Modder.NET) *
- Mobility Modder.NET
- .NET Framework (v1.1, v1.1 SP1, v2.0 and v2.0 SP1) - required for CCC and Mobility Modder.NET

I've not found Quickset drivers yet

Non-WHQL signed video drivers may hose-up blu-ray playback for those with the Optiaric BRD...
