Everytime I put one of those memory sticks (its a sony one) into my m1710 I get a BSOD. I've used the card b4 when I had vista with no problems. I'm thinking now that I'm back with XP, I'm missing a driver or something. I'm not sure which driver I'm supposed to use though...
Whenever I put a Sony Memory Stick into the built in reader in my M6400, it asks if I want to format it. The same memory stick opens fine in my Dell M90. I've already updated the Ricoh Chipset drivers for the reader.
I received my E6400. In short, I like it. It came with 1gb of Ram. So I ordered 4gb of Crucial (2x2gb) ddr2 6400 to put in it.
Well. It's only recognizing one stick of it. The Ram itself is not bad. I've verified this by placing each stick in individually and I get no errors. Would there be any reason the computer would not be recognizing that second stick that isn't hardware?
The bios says the second slot is empty. Which either means that for some reason the software isn't recognizing the ram or the second slot itself is bad?
Ah...specs. Started out with XP. It did the same thing. only 1 stick was recognized. I've installed Vista Home Premium 64-bit. T9800 Bluetooth upgrade was user installed. What other system info do you need?
First of all its a great site and thanks you all here. I'm not a native english speaker so excuse me...
I recently installed windows 7 64-bit and for some reason the windows installation didn't install any driver for the memory stick card reader (and didn't even give a notice or something about that).
I tried to manually install a driver and all I could find is the driver R168331.exe. It installed properly but now it can't read all my memory sticks and it only give me a massage that I need to format the stick (even if its an old one that I used recently).
Even if I'm trying to format the stick a massage come up and say that it can't format the stick because it can't read it right.
stuck in a Memory Stick PRO Duo (without the adapter) in my Acer Aspire One notebook, but was able to get it out with tape. Perhaps this will help other people in the same situation.
Apparently you have to make 15 posts to submit a thread, but I'm a preschool teacher with limited technology skills, so it you go to w w w dot LloydandLauren dot com and look at the November 21st post, you can see how I got it out.
My HP Pavillion 15 sleekbook has a digital media port on the side that does not read my Sony 64mb memory stick, although it fits fine. After being put on hold for an inexcusible amount of time the tech, that I could hardly understand said it wouldn't work. Why not, and if not what will?
I got a MBP 13" 2.26ghz with 2x 1gb RAM. I was thinking of buying just 1 2gb ram and install it on my MBP so total it's gonna be 3gb RAM.
So, I was just wondering if anyone has ever tried using different size RAM together? I know it's not advisable to do that due to possible instability in performance. But I would like to get some opinion from experienced user.
I bought my E6400 about a year ago now and never got around to upgrading the RAM from 2 GB (on 1 DIMM) to 4 GB. Which memory do I need? I am still running Vista Business 32-bit (haven't looked into the new Windows 7 yet). How much will a 2 GB stick run me these days, and does anyone have a link to the correct memory I need
I have a dell E6400 Latidue with 4 Gig of memory I would like to upgrade to 8 gig. I need for my building control software. Were can I find 8 gig .All I can find is the 4 gig memory updates which is what I already done...
I currently have the the Dell M1330 with the 4965agn. Had some problems at first but is working beautifullynow.
I am upgrading to the Dell Studio XPS 13 and it has the Dell 1515 Wireless Card, I've been reading that people are saying the Dell 1515 Wireless card have poor performance. Could anyone recommend a good rock solid wireless card with great performances?
I was thinking of switching out the 4965agn from the old laptop to the new one. Or maybe get the Intel 5300 AGN wireless card. possibly the Intel 5100.
My XPS 17 screen sometimes goes black like the display is turning off when using USB sticks, SD Memory cards or even an external Mouse. If you move the mouse it will resume but if you pull out the USB drive again it will go black causing you to have to move the mouse again. Even using programs that use the User Account Controls will cause it to go black (unlike how User Account dims the screen) causing you to have to move the mouse to bring the screen back.
The only way to stop it from going black is rebooting, until it decides to do it again. However even if you aren't using a USB anymore after it started going black, it will go black at random even when using the internet causing you to have to reboot. It will only do this if the USB or user Account has triggered it going black first.
Sometimes this doesn't happen for a week or two and sometimes it happens a few times a week. Dell has replaced my motherboard and my Graphics card with brand new ones. It seemed to have fixed it until it did it today (week later)
I don't believe it is software related as I have all the latest bio updates, driver updates and windows updates.
I tried something I've never tried before. While it was going black using USB drives I tried pulling the battery charger cable out from the back. When I did that, it completely stopped going dim without a reboot. I've never tried this before and no matter what I tried before doing this the screen would always go black.
Could it be my Power Cable that charges the laptop? or could it be my display? It seems it's related to the charger because me unplugging it seems to have fixed what ever was messed up until it occurs again at random.
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?
Received a new Latitude E7440 today, and I like having the option of a pointing stick and a trackpad depending on what I'm doing, however the pointing stick apparently also can be "clicked" instead of using the dedicated buttons... this is annoying to say the least.
When I'm moving the mouse pointer with the pointing stick, if I press a little too hard it thinks I'm trying to do a click/drag.
I can operate the dedicated buttons just fine, so is there some way to disable this pressure-sensitive click feature on the pointing stick? Otherwise I'll have to disable the stick entirely as it's more annoying that having somebody randomly clicking the mouse buttons while you're trying to work...
I got my XPS15 (32gb ssd + 1tb hdd) right before christmas and had been happy with it. I even managed to get Intel Rapid Storage running, since it did not work from the beginning for whatever reason.My hdd made funny sounds soon after, so last week happened what needed to happen - the hdd crashed.
No problem, dell in person of a service technician replaced the hdd and installed a clean win 8 (not the original dell package, just a plain one). This did not support Intel Rapid Storage, probably because bios was set to AHCI. I found out later, when the technician had left. Not any driver seemed to work.
So I decided to recover my old win 8 with my self made set of recovery dvds. But this did not work, win 8 just did not want to start after recovery.
I now try to install win 8 from the dvd the service guy brought, but at the beginning it asks me to provide the correct driver. I put the F6-driver for sata from intel onto a usb-stick, but setup does not accept that. I cannot proceed with installation...
