Apple :: Wheres My MacBook Pros Exhaust Vents

Apr 25, 2009

I've noticed unlike most laptops ( like my old Dell & my GF's Dell ) my Mac Book Pro 15 seems to have no obvious area for the heat to exscape...

I have noticed some heat above the keyboard where the screen hinge is, but dont see any vents...

I was gonna buy a lap top cooler for my GF's laptop & thought about getting self one but wonder if it would really do anything for my MBP15?

Dell :: Memory Speed Affecting Windows Experience (memory Operations)

Oct 13, 2008

A friend just showed me his new Dell Vostro lappy. He has 4 GB of DDR2 800mhz memory on it when compared to my 4 GB of DDR2 667mhz memory on my XPS 1530

However, under his windows experience score - he gets 5.9 score for memory operations while I just get a 5.1. I can't believe that a couple of hundred mhz can result in such a drastic difference.

Is there something optimized for his system but not for mine?

HP EliteBook 8540w :: Identifying Correct Memory Slot For RAM Upgrade To Enable Dual Channel Memory

Jan 12, 2015

I just purchased a used Elitebook 8540w with i7 quad core and four memory slots (I love it!).  It is running 64 bit Windows 7 Professional  It came with one 4gb memory module and I purchased an additional 4gb module to bring total RAM to 8gb.  
I have the HP document that shows for two 4gb memory modules, one should be in memory slot 1 and the other in memory slot 3 for correct functioning of dual channel memory.  All set right?
Not quite.  In the Elitebook 8540w, the primary memory slots under the keyboard are clearly labeled "1" and "2"  However, the expansion memory slots on the underside of the chassis are also clearly labeled "1" and "2"  Opps!  There is no "3" and there is no "4"  In which of the unfilled three slots do I install the second 4gb module for correct functioning of dual channel memory?

Dell :: Does Not Support 64 Bit OS?

Sep 19, 2008

I recently bought an OEM Vista Home Premium 64-bit and installed is yesterday. I chatted to a Dell tech support guy today and he essentially said that I wasted my money on the 64-bit OS as Dell laptops do not support 64-bit Operating systems. He said this was due to the fact that my processor (see above) was a 32bit processor. I however came accross this intel site;[url] whci i believe to be my processor that states it is a 64-bit processor.

Another thing; in the dell tech support application, my total memory is shown as 4GB, whilst my available memory is shown to be 2.6GB. Does this mean that all 4GB is not being recognised/utilised? Or does it simply mean that 1.4GB of RAM is currently being used, with 2.6GB left for when I need it?

Dell :: Kudos To Support

Mar 8, 2009

Early last week my XPS M1330 started to blue screen and suffer screen pixelation issues on a frequently recurring basis.

Thanks to this forum I was soon able to deduce that my GPU was suffering from the well known GPU over-heating issue.

I called Dell XPS premium support on Wednesday afternoon and got through to someone in India who was extremely curtious, spoke excellent english and was obviously technically savy.

Dell :: Studio XPS 16 Does Not Support SDHC

May 7, 2009

I rely heavily on SDHC cards and use the built in card reader heavily in my Studio 1537.

I just bought a new Studio XPS 16 and it won't read my SDHC cards. I chatted with Dell last night and they took control of my system remotely.. They couldn't fix it, and finally said "The Studio XPS 16 does not support SDHC, you'll have to use regular SD"

I just find this hard to believe on a new, so called "State of the art system"

I also have a Studio 15 (1537) and SDHC works perfectly.

After fighting with several "Techs" and their "Supervisors" I returned the system and bought another..... AND, what do you know... I was right....It does support SDHC!!

Dell :: Does My Chipset Support Core I7?

Apr 13, 2010

I'm thinking about upgrading to Core i7 for my laptop (Studio 1555, since I run games and stuff on it, and don't have enough resources to build my own PC.

I researched, but I always like asking to make sure... does the PM45 chipset support i7 processors? I usually know this stuff, but i* is pretty new, and I'm running behind.

I currently have a freshly undervolted Core 2 Duo 2.66Ghz (I forget the model number).

Dell :: Laptops With Linux Support?

Feb 28, 2009

I'm thinking of buying a laptop which is quite powerful and can run Linux (most of my work is in Linux). I'm an engineering student and frequently need to use computationally intensive applications,

which are also graphically intensive. Following a post on another subforum (, I was asked to confirm with Dell users here as to what their Linux experiences are.

I would appreciate inputs and suggestions about purchasing laptops from users of Dell laptops, especially the Latitide and Precision.

I understand that the appropriate subforum for this is different, but since this is now only a matter of deciding which Dell model to purchase

I was wondering in you could stick more than 4gb into the M1530 if you have a 64-bit OS installed (Vista or 7)? Mine is more than a year old, but I've noticed that you can now configure the M1530 with up to 8gb.

Dell :: E6400 And Business Support

Feb 16, 2009

i wanted to buy a refurbished e6400 from the outlet and wanted to know how does the dedicated graphics card on it run? the NVIDIA Quadro NVS 160M With PC-Card. also how is the customer service and do they charge a restocking fee for the business side and do they pay for the shipping back to them?

also how is the build quality of them? are they that great compared to a lenovo y530/550, cuz i like the design of the ideapads but there not as reliable as the thinkpads.

also does dell usually have like free shipping or discounts for the business outlet cuz i know they did for home.

and the Mobile Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 4500MHD With Express Card or like the ones WITH PC-CARD are they much different from the regular 4500mhd or x4500?

Dell :: XPS M1330/ Support Woes

Feb 25, 2010

I am completely frustrated with Dell. I purchased my XPS M1330 in February, 2008. Thank God I also purchased a 3-year premium service contract. Since then I have had the motherboard replaced 4 times, the hard drive replaced once, the fan and heat sink system replaced, the keypad replaced, and the memory replaced.

I had to re-install my operating system and programs to get rid of a Blue Screen of Death, at Dell's insistence, when I knew and it was later substantiated that the motherboard was at fault, yet again. Needless to say, I had to exercise a lot of self-control after that. All that work and time invested and, PRESTO: Blue Screen of Death. So much for "it's a driver issue."

In my opinion, these laptops run way too hot and, as a result, kill components. Please don't get me wrong.

When it works it is a joy to own and use. But, if I take just the replacement motherboards (4) the replaced hard drive (1), the replaced keypad (1 or is it 2 now?), replaced memory (1), etc. and simply divide those 7 service calls by 24 months, it averages one major fix every three and a half months that I have owned the computer.

This is a far cry from the exceptional dependability of my old Inspiron 600M that never gave me one ounce of trouble in three years of very hard use.

I'm looking at my new SXPS 16 and on the right side of the glossy lid it looks like they didn't finish glossing it or it jammed up.

Also when I run my hand over it it feels rough compared to the glossy rest of the lid. Also you can only see it at angles not looking straight down

Dell :: To Charge For US-based Support

Dec 14, 2008

I never thought I'd be writing this, but Dell (yes, Dell), is charging customers a monthly fee to have access to its United States-based customer service representatives.

The Washington Post reported on Thursday that the PC maker is charging customers with a Dell account $12.95 per month to have access to an American agent or $99 per year for customers who buy a new PC from the company.

Those who don't pay the sum will be contacting center agents in India or the Philippines. But before you start your bellyaching, Dell is sweetening the pot: wait times are guaranteed to be 2 or fewer minutes!

I think this only pertains to the Dell Home systems.

Correction: They will provide this option for all Dell Home computers including XPS. If your curious the option is under services and the "Your Tech Team" option.
