Dell :: Which SSD Is Used For 256GB Encrypted Mobility SSD In E4300?

Jan 3, 2010

Just picked up a (seemingly) great deal on an E4300 from the Outlet with a 256GB Encrypted Mobility SSD for about $1100, and wondered which SSD actually comes with it? I'm hoping it's at least a 2nd Generation Samsung and not some old 1st Gen Samsung that's slow as molasses!

Dell :: How Does 256GB Encrypted SSD Work?

Jan 8, 2010

I have an E4300 coming today with a 256GB Encrypted Mobility SSD in it.

I had always thought that the encryption was totally SSD-based. But in thinking about it, if that was the case, then I could move the SSD to another notebook and it would still work, since the encryption is IN the SSD.

So, there must be something (TPM, etc) that ties the encrypted SSD to the notebook.

Dell :: 10.2 Supports Most Mobility Radeon HD Display Adapters (Studio XPS 16 Mobility Radeon HD 4670)

Feb 20, 2010

So at first I was confused but now I understand. First official, completely top to bottom support for all mobility cards (in the specified range of course) will come out with 10.3. What they didn't say that SOME mobility cards will be already supported with 10.2 and our " Dell (Studio XPS 16 Mobility Radeon HD 4670)" is on that list.

This was posted in another thread, but this wasn't the focus. They also have beta 10.3s...but I thought it was neat that official 10.2 WHQL certified drivers supported our card ....

Dell :: About Encrypted HD Option In A E6400 Notebook

Apr 26, 2009

I'm going to buy a Dell Latitude E6400 to replace my old TP T42.
I only have a doubt about what HD option to choose.

I'm pretty interested in having a encrypted hard disk option (80GB 5400rpm Encrypted Hard Drive) but I don't really know how does it work. On my thinkpad notebook you can choose if you want the hard drive protected with a master password or not. You configure this in the BIOS.

Could anyone say me if on the Dell Latitude E Series notebooks it works in the same way? Or maybe the disk is encrypted by a windows software or anything? I'm worried about this because I'm going to use more than one OS in the notebook and if I'm going to pay for a encrypted hard drive I want it to be OS independent.

Where do you configure this feature? Also in the BIOS or maybe in a hard drive controller?

If the encrypted hard drive is more expensive than other options, I suppose that if I one day I change the disk for another, this one must has encrypted data support? I can't simply change it for any kind of notebook HD?

Apple :: .opening Encrypted Images In Windows

Jan 9, 2010

I'd like to encrypt my entire hard drive in this MBP. I use Time Machine, though -- and my understanding is that FileVault (a) is exploitable, and (b) requires that users be logged out for backups to occur. Both of those are big problems for me.

Behind that, the easiest way to encrypt things that really, truly should be protected somehow is to use Disk Utility to create a protected image, or such is my assumption. From what I understand, a .dmg can be converted to ISO within Windows (or opened with 7-zip). Is it at all possible for an encrypted .dmg to be converted/opened under Windows?

I ask because I'm not convinced I won't be on a Windows 7 notebook at some point, especially with updated HP Envy and Sony Vaio models coming. Could be wrong, but I like flexibility.

(I know that TrueCrypt serves a similar function to encrypted .dmg files via Disk Utility and is cross-platform, but still.)

Apple :: Third-party File Encryption / Encrypted Images With Time Machine

Nov 1, 2009

My understanding is that FileVault's shortcomings are such:

- Documented vulnerabilities
- Requires that user be logged off to backup with Time Machine

I have a few things on my notebook that I would like to be kept safe in the event of a loss or theft. I used to use AxCrypt on Windows for this, but there are no OSX builds for it, so what I'm wondering is this:

- If I create an encrypted image and use it like a TrueCrypt/Cryptainer partition, will Time Machine back the image up as it changes over time like any other file?
- Is there any reason I shouldn't do that over some other way of keeping things safe?

3.CCleaned it
4.Did the last defrag I should ever do
5.Installed the SSD in my Roswill USB case and connected to my M1330
6.Initialized the drive
7.Formated the drive
8.Downloaded the latest build of Acronis 2009
9.Cloned the HD to the SSD
10.Booted up quickly with no issues.
Works great. Boots fast.Everything "pops".
I will miss little Bobby but he kept touching my stuff.
By the way 8 months and no Nvidia issues.

Dell :: Using A 256GB SDD (Part #J246M) In A Mac?

Jul 6, 2009

I have a Studio XPS 13 with the 256GB SSD option and absolutely love it.

My wife uses a Mac... one of the new 13" Macbook Pro's. It came with a 160GB 5400RPM drive but she needs more room and after seeing my XPS fly with the SSD she has decided that she just has to have an SSD.

Looking out on the Dell website I see that they sell the 256GB Dell branded SSD for under $500 which seems like a really good deal but I'm not sure if it will work in the MBP .....

Dell :: XPS M1710 7900 GS Mobility OC

Dec 5, 2008

I am attempting to OC my Mobility 7900 GS.

The stock settings on the clock speeds in ntune are reported at 375/507.

I recently updated to the 180.something drivers from nvidia, the latest ones available, hearing the these new drivers in combination with RivaTuner 2.20 can now OC this card without having to flash the BIOS.

After installing new drivers, my RivaTuner would not allow me to change the settings... I would change the 2 clock speeds on core and memory, then press apply, and ok - then they would just go back to the default settings immediately.
