Dell :: Upgrade From 3 To 4gb With M1330 & Win7?

May 3, 2009

I currently have 3gb of Corsair Ram(2gb+1gb) on a M1330, 2.2ghz, 120gb hdd, with Win 7.

I know Vista only recognized 3.2gb RAM with video ram/system resources eating some ram. Does Win 7 recognize the full 4gb?

I am trying to maximize performance for photo editing and would like to know if I should bother upping the memory to 4gb. I heard putting in same RAM chips(2gbx2gb) will allow dual-channel performance. Is the speed difference using dual-channel noticeable?

Dell :: Vostro 1500 Upgrade And Win7 Questions

Oct 25, 2009

I am looking at upgrading the memory in my Vosto 1500. It currently has 667mhz memory in it (came with the laptop). My processor is a T7100, a 800mhz processor. If I get 800mhz memory, will it recognize it and run it at 800mhz?

Also, while I am here, has anyone upgraded to a SSD drive in place of the stock HDD? Will the bios accept it? Laptop was purchased in 2007, and I am on the original A01 bios

Sony :: Can't Upgrade To Win7 On A Z Series

Aug 8, 2009

I have the new Win7 disks from MSDN (pro and ultimate). Tried multiple times yesterday to upgrade my Z690 from Vista. Uninstalled all of the conflicting drivers/programs, it goes all the way through the install process, gets to the point where it copies over the old files, but then abruptly restarts and uses the Rollback program to get me into Vista again.

I tried 4 times, same result each time. Anyone have an idea if there's something I can do get this machine upgraded?

A clean install is not an option, too many programs I can't find the disks to...

HP/Compaq :: How Do I Preactivate My Win7 Upgrade

Nov 13, 2009

When i was on vista i used orev's activation backup and restore whenever i made a clean vista install. Now when i got the windows 7 upgrade from HP i have no idea how to do the same. For now it's activated with the win7 home premium key on the upgrade dvd. Does anyone have any idea how to preactivate win7 hp?

As i understand 3 things are necessary for preactivation:

1. SLIC 2.1 bios with key - Got it
2. HP OEM certificate for win7 - Missing
3. HP OEM-SLP key for win7 home premium - Missing i think

I guess i need the hp oem certificate and hp oem-slp key for win7 homepremium - can i contact HP for it or can a good sole on this forum email me a copy?

Sony :: Optical Drive Reads DVDs, But Not The Win7 Upgrade

May 8, 2010

I have a Sony VGN-AR38G.

I have upgraded the HDD and RAM 2 months ago after a hardisk failure.

Current specs as follows:
Intel Core2 CPU T7400@2.16GHz
Nvidia GeForce Go 7600 GT
2x2G RAM
2x320G HDD

Optical Drive: Mata BD-MLT UJ-210S ATA Device
In device manager it says the device is working properly.
Current driver version is 6.0.6001.18000, which should be the latest (Ver1.06)

The laptop was purchased in June 2007. Broke Dec 2009 due to hardisk failure. Then I upgraded some hardwares (HDD & RAM), reinstalled Vista Home Premium (Burnt disk) then upgraded to Win7 (Retail disk).

Then 2 weeks ago, I left it on battery only, thought it would go into hybernation when the battery drains, however I had a nasty system loss, basically all I had was the Vaio logo and BIOS info, not even F8. So had to reinstall the system. Did pretty much the same thing as before, except I did the firmware upgrade of the optical drive, which I don't recall doing the last time. Then, I'm stuck with the Win7 upgrade.

Dell :: Upgrade XPS M1330

Nov 26, 2008

My current configuration is the following:
CPU: T7500
RAM: 2GB

Is it worth upgrading to T9500 and 4GB of RAM?

Should I do it through Dell or by my own? I know that doing it by my own is much cheaper but what's happening with the guarantee? Moreover, will I need a new charger? How much does it cost approximately?

Is there anything else that I should take into account?

Sony :: Vaio SZ 4 Series Fan Replacement And Wifi + Processor Upgrade (Win7 + Ubuntu Feedback)

Nov 25, 2009

I had replaced mobo on my dead SZ 4 series (don't ask why) and couldn't stop there since I was in the move thus consequently contemplated about possible upgrades. For now I settled for fan, WLAN card and CPU upgrade. If it works well, I might install SSD also.

1.Fan Modification

As you all proud SZ owners know, fan is very noisy on this machines so it made me think if there is any possible modification to reduce the noise. Since the BIOS is controlling it there is not much to do on the RPM part (in win at least, but more on that later) I settled for a fan and fan casing swap from SZ 4 to SZ 7 series.

In the photos you can see that fans, fan casings and heat-sinks are of different design. Besides design differences, voltage and the amperage are the same, 5V-300mA.

Only way was to install the fan and the casing of the SZ 7 heat-sink to my old one as one of the heat-sinks bolt bushings is off for a few millimeters.

There has to be some care exercised when prying off the fan casing, some heating was required from the aluminium side on three pins were casing is attached.

Not to be simple, the difference is also in the inlet hole. One on the SZ 7 heat-sink is bigger and off centre compared to SZ 4s. Had to do some filing there, to match it to the size of the new fan. Fan of SZ7 is not bigger, it is due to different design of the fan eye and its volutes...................

Dell :: XPS M1330 Processor Upgrade

Mar 2, 2010

i'm new to these forums and know VERY LITTLE about computers. i bought my laptop 2 years ago and cheaped out on the processor to save some cash.

i want to upgrade the processor now because it is a little slow for my liking plus i want to be able to play some newer video games like BC2 and MW2.

my current processor is an Intel Core 2 Duo CPU T7100 @ 1.80GHz

I dont know too much about computers like I said but im pretty sure I want one that can run at at least 2.4GHz and read that the T8300 ran at 2.4GHz in a thread but that thread was about 3 years old XD.

edit: found an Intel Core 2 Duo CPU T8600 @ 2.4GHz for $210. is that a good deal?

Dell :: M1330 Graphics Upgrade

May 12, 2009

I currently own an M1330 with the Intel 950 graphics (meh.) I want Nvidia graphics. I know that this cannot be done via the motherboard that is currently installed. I have located a few resellers of a motherboard with an 8400M GS GPU. I am well-enough versed to install this hardware in my system as I have disassembled this beast once already to upgrade my CPU.

Question 1: Is there any motherboard that contains a higher level GPU than the 8400 GS for the M1330? I've heard rumors or maybe seen references to a GT GPU?

Question 2: Is this upgrade a simple drop in or are there other considerations to pay attention too? example: will a new motherboard necessitate a different tray/heatsink or combination thereof?

Question 3: Are the connections on the Nvidia GPU MoBo the same and in the same location as in the Intel GPU MoBo?

Any other input I may not be considering would be most helpful. I am going to be away from home for a bit and my laptop will do duty as TV Machine /Movie Machine/Company of Heroes Machine. The Intel GPU simply does not make the cut for even full screen DVD content (without chopiness.)

Dell :: M1330 With Penryn Upgrade

Jan 31, 2008

I know some folks have put a T9300 in their m1330, but the screenshots I've seen show the bios incorrectly detecting the CPU speed (A06 I believe). I want to know if the new A07 bios has corrected this issue, but I never saw any followup. Can anyone who has done this upgrade confirm/deny if A07 fixed the detection issue?

Dell :: Upgrade From CCFL To LED LCD Screen (M1330)

Mar 9, 2010

I like repairing laptops as a hobby. I recently bought a M1330 laptop without a screen and with a small video card problem. The laptop still worked on external screen, but showed some lines.

This was due to the NVidia gpu problem. I managed to fix it by using a hot air soldering station(Youtube video). To decrease the chance that it arrises again, I also did the copper mod(description). This meant that I could finally use the laptop for my work if I could just install a LCD screen.

Since I have spend quite some time on repairing the laptop already, I decided to invest some additional money to upgrade from a CCFL to a LED backlit LCD. I ordered a new cover, screen and LED LCD cable.

When I assembled all the parts, everything fits perfectly .....

Dell :: M1330 Hard Drive Upgrade From 120gb To 320gb

Sep 23, 2008

I purchased my M1330 over a year ago, with an internal 120gb hard drive.

I just purchased the HITACHI Travelstar 7K320 from NewEgg, since I'd like a both faster and larger drive.
However, I am curious about the following:

Right now, my hard drive is flush with the side of my laptop. It has a black trim on the side that is the reason for the flush side. It came this way from Dell. However, in purchasing the new hard drive, what can I do to make the side flush again, as well as the hard drive secure (dust, falling out, etc)? Can dell provide the part (side cover)?

For your reference, you can notice the hard drive cover in this photo (far right of the laptop):

Dell :: M4400, Pre-installed Win7 Ok, Re-installed Win7 Not Ok...

Feb 18, 2010

I received my Precision M4400 with Win 7 Pro x64 pre-installed, and using it for audio recording and playing everything works great. However, since Win7x64 drivers do not exist for some of my audio devices,

I decided to put in a new HD (same as the original, only larger) double-booting XPx86 and Win7x64. So I installed XP on one partition of the new HD and Win7x64 from the CD that shipped with the M4400. Big problem...

Neither XPx86 nor the re-installed Win7x64 are able to deliver anything but crackles and pops and noise only slightly resembling music. Forget about recording...

Dell :: M2400 With Win7

Nov 16, 2009

I've upgraded my precision m2400 about 2 weeks ago and noticed that the battery life has gone down significantly even when adjusting the power options / screen lighting / keyboard backlight and wifi.

Wasn't windows 7 suppose to improve battery life on laptops? The battery life has gone down by about an hour with variation on different power option settings. Anyone know how to fix this or anyone else having this problem? I'm using it with a 9cell battery.

Every now and then my PC goes through the bootup process but as Win7 (x64) starts loading, it says Please Wait...

only way Dell reckons to resolve it, is to go in Safe mode and go back a Restore point.
