My laptop is having problem actually when i start my laptop different colored horizontal line start coming on screen and after some time whole screen becomes white.. what is the reason behind it and what is the solution of it...??
I've just purchased an XPS 15Z (highest category with the 256 SSD) and face a few issues
1- the computer often does not come out of hibernation, the system cannot be restored after it goes in hibernation mode.
on several occasion I have put my laptop in hibernation mode and when I turn it back on it prompts me with a black screen and an error message giving me 2 options (1 - either try to restore files or 2- exit safe mode and cancel restore) if I chose the first option of trying to restore the files it gives me another error message which says:
"windows boot manager, your computer can't come out of hibernation - status 0xc0000411 info: a fatal error occurred processing the restoration data file: hiberfil.sys Any info that was not saved before the computer went into hibernation will be lost"
Therefore when I turn my computer back on, all windows and programs I had previously opened are closed and not saved
I have had to deal with this issue for over 10 times since I've had my computer (less than 5 days)...
2- overall memory problem, with approx 50 Gb missing (might be linked to my first issue)...
I haven't installed anything on my laptop except for some photos that I transferred from my old computer (accounting for 40 Gb of memory) however I have 99 Gb of used space on my SSD.... this is weird since every time I switched on my laptop there's less and less space available even though I haven't installed anything new...
I've had the computer for less than a week but both these issues keep happening...
I have been a SUPER happy customer with my M1730. I originally owned an XPS Gen 2 (way back in the day). My question is, are they going to make a new successor to M1730? It's been a while, I've seen DELL come out with the new lower XPS line (13/16). Also now with the Adamo. However, I see no mention of further XPS 17XX. Have they discontinued it?
I know they purchased Alienware, but I just don't like Alienware, it looks a little to geeky for me.
If they took the M1730 and just upgraded the board so we could get the 1333Mhz RAM + G270M Video card + QuadCore (However, I'm pretty happy with my X9000)
I just got a Dell Studio XPS 1640 today and I am having a major issue with the speakers. It sounds as if the person who put the laptop together wired them incorrectly, the top speakers near the keyboard sounds very faint and tinny like a surround speaker on a home theater system, but the volume is very low and cannot hear it unless you put your ear up to the speakers.
I purchased a Dell Inspiron 9200 in Janaury 2005. It has been an excellent laptop since day #1, but an upgrade is now in order!
Can ANYBODY have a clue as to when Dell will release laptops based on the new CENTRINO 2 line? I'd love to buy another Dell, but if they don't plan on upgrading the hardware soon, then I'll have to go to another brand.
Well im currently using the Dell XPS M1330 since 2008 let me say it has been awesome! The only problem has been the battery which has been dead since early February I believe so I have been operating using the adapter.
The dead battery is still in the laptop.
However, now my idle temps are over 75 c and often over 80 c, so im thinking about selling this in fact I will be selling this shortly. Especially given the fact that the warranty ran out in February of this year.
Anyhow, im wondering if the XPS line will be refreshed in 2010 and when can we expect some new XPS models.
I only purchase my computers from Best Buy and currently they really do not have anything which really grabs me
(These are the must-haves) 15" chassis class Core i5 CPU 1920x1200 or 1920x1080 resolution 8GB of ram Preferably an SSD, but I can wiggle on this one Upgraded battery Don't care too much about graphics, and since the i3/i5's have a built in video I'd go with that, it looks to be fast enough for me.
Budget is about $1500-2000
Right now there is the Alienware m15x with the mobile core i7, but I don't REALLY need a quadcore, or the faster graphics, or the power consumption of either. I am hoping that there is an inspiron or Studio coming out (tomorrow?!) that can be made to meet my above specs... Anyone have any info?
I have got a Dell 9300 that I've been using for recording for a while. I've recently gotten a new external audio interface, a Presonus Firestudio that I connect to the Firewire port on the 9300. I'm getting digital noise coming through the Firestudio from the 9300 through the Firewire port. The noise, ie. chirping, clicking and popping, happens when you move your mouse or resize a window.
I've tried running the interface into the computer using a PCMCIA to FW adapter and running it into the cardbus slot. That has reduced the noise some, but has not eliminated it.
I don't remember getting this noise always, but I certainly have been dealing with it for a while. The noise isn't recorded so I can record just fine, it's just noisy when I'm monitoring.
The bottom line is that this laptops are not worthy to buy!
1. Throttling Issue (No real fix so far) 2. Random freezing (Speculations about driver fix) 3. Brightness control stops working randomly (remove batery to fix) 4. Sub-buffer rattles (nobody knows why) 5. Stereo leaks between left and right (no fix) 6. System runs extremely hot (1645 a little bit less than 1640)
All-in-all nice looking and feature complete laptop with a lot of issues.
Most of them are solvable, but they require some effort.
A bit disappointing since I wish dell had come out with their top precision line which worked flawlessly "out of the box". Precision laptops have some great hardware and I would like to see dell kicking MBPs butt.
So, did drop the ball on the precision line ? Should it demand more from the device driver development team ?
I have a 1520, 2Ghz Duo, 2.5 Gb Ram, running XP.....I also have a Line6 Guitarport USB audio interface. When I use this the audio often drops out a lot, especially when acessing the hard drive - what can I do about this? -
it's a 5400RPM drive - will upgrading to a 7200RPM improve things? It seems something is effecting the USB data stream.
The hard drive I have is a WDC WD1200BEVS-75UST 120GB
Also, is the drive running in SATA mode - when using HD tune it says: Standard: ATA/ATAPI-8 - SATA I
when i start up internet explore for the first time, i get a thin line that run's right across my screen, but when i minimize IE and maximise it again its gone. it only seems to be there when i first start up IE.
this was a response i got from another forum.
"My psychic powers tell me you have a graphics card with poorly written drivers. You should check to see if there is an update available from the manufacturer. Then install it. Reboot. See if your problem goes away"
i have had a brand new motherboard fitted today, and this problem was there beforehand, i also have the latest drivers installed.
I was thinking about buying this game for my M1710 and thought to ask if anyone out there with a Dell M1710 tried this game on their M1710.Just want to know fps,setting etc.Just don't want to spend $49.95 at Gamestop to find the game plays like a dog on my system.Don't want to get a "CRYSIS"type game my system can't handle.
I know people have stated that they are liking there new laptop. My question is more of a what would you do type deal. How does the 1730 perform in vista with wow and world in conflict etc? are u guys having any studdering issues? Reason I'm asking is that im getting ready to pull the trigger on this or a alienware 9750. I have never used vista, my desktop is running xp.
I have read the forums and searched but i want to know how it performs in game. Are you guys missing the horsepower from the 7950? Im just looking for a some advice on what i should do.
I want to know since no one has actually been talking about it. Are there any new precision, and latitude updates coming out? Any new quadro cards for the precision m2400, like the new hp elite book with 512mb graphics.
