I have 3GB of memory installed. I had AOL, Motorola Phone tools, and 21 Web Tabs open - and I can't open anymore web tabs to view web pages despite having 2.3 GB of physical memory available! Gee, Windows XP sucks for this. Is Windows Vista any better for web viewing maybe can it do like 50 web pages?
I have a Studio XPS M1640 and I'm experiencing extremely slow internet browsing with firefox and ie. My SXPS has the Intel 5300 card, which I've read has problems such as dropouts and slow speeds. I'm also running Vista 64-bit, which I'm assuming could also be part of the problem. Web pages take way too long to load, but my download and upload speeds are the same as they would be if I plugged directly into my router. Has anyone else experienced slow browsing with their SXPS 16? I'd love it if someone could give me a solution to this.
I just bought a new Dell XPS 14 a couple weeks ago and I just started noticing that whenever I am browsing something on the internet (I use Google Chrome), it randomly freezes. I do not know if it has anything to do with me using the track pad two-finger scrolling, or if it is a software problem. It is a really nice laptop and I am upset that it keeps freezing. The freezing happens only after about 30-45 minutes of using the computer after it is asleep. Just before it freezes, everything is completely normal, no heat, no loud fan, nothing! But right when it freezes, I try to do the ctrl+alt+delete/ task manager and nothing. The whole system froze. I even tried to see if I can dim the keyboard, but it did not work. Usually I have to press and hold the power button to shut it off and then I turn it back on.
I have got a Latitude E6530 laptop with an Intel quad-core i7-3720QM CPU and 8 GB RAM.
The strange thing is when I use Firefox (with not more than 6 tabs) specially using gmail, after a while scrolling and browsing become very slow; even typing become slow. As I wrote the laptop is one of the latest generation. I can not realize where the issue could be.
Everytime I try and multitask on the internet my laptop freezes and I am forced to shut it down. Before it only happened while I was multi tasking but now it's getting a lot worser. It often freezes while I'm waiting for a YouTube video to load and now while I was in the process of posting a thread right here about this issue! I did some research online and run into two possible problems; overheating and video graphics card.It can't be overheating because my fan is working fine and I just ran a diagnostic.
As for the video graphics card, I did play around the settings last week after I installed a game called Elder Scrolls V:Skyrim. I configured by entire computer to run on high performance but now I've reverted this change and the freezing still happens. What I can tell you is that while I'm playing the game for over an hour, the laptop doesn't freeze at all. It only freezes now while I'm on the internet for at least more than 20-30 minutes or even less. I'm on Safe Mode with Networking right now as I'm typing.

out of the blue connecting to a server takes about 20-30 seconds. This problem remains, also the connections close by themselves. When I boot linux on this machine there is no problem. Other machines on the network have no problems. Connecting to these other machines with this laptop show the same results ->slow connection, difficult browsing. (the domain controller is a slack box - no machine restrictions are in order)
-Firewall is down for the occasion but no effect. -There were no recent updates. -It doesn't matter what interface I use wireless or Ethernet.
My guess is problem with samba. Restarting samba or restarting osx have no effect. Resolve.conf shows the right info and HTTP traffic is normal. I find reinstalling is no option. I want to know the problem and if there are more users with the same problem. OS: OSX 10.5.6
i had a few glitches while browsing the web and reading my tutorials on acrobat reader...the temperature has been going quite hot recently remaining in the 70's, sometimes going more and rarely in the upper 60's....do you think this is a dying gpu?
Just purchased Z710 laptop. I am astonished at the poor performance while browsing the Internet. My 8 yr old Dell/XP outperforms this thing. I hope there is a relatively simple fix for this or I am in deep trouble. Pages slow to open, videos constantly buffering. Multi-tasking is out of the question.
The brightness on my new E545 with Windows 8.1 fluctuates weirdly while browsing the web or doing other this. This is really annoying. It will fade and then suddly flash to a brighter setting.
I already disabled the adaptive brightness in the power options and it still does it.Searching around the web I see a bunch of suggestions that are related to Intel graphics adapters but nothing related to AMD.
I don't know what to do i tried updating bios but it made it worse then i restored my notebook tried to restore to factor sending but the same still happens I don't know what to do this is happening for last 4 month since i bought it . This lagg thing is happening when listening to music and like browsing internet at a same time and when i turn a page on lets say Google lagg thing happens and its stop my music for a sec and it makes funny noise like dzinkt...
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?
I have been hearing that the read/playback performance of the bluray drive on this laptop is terrible. Some say that it stutters all the way through an entire movie and it is very loud. Is this true? My second question is about the $375 charge for upgrading from 4GB RAM to 8GB RAM. Is it overpriced? Also, how easy is it to upgrade the RAM on the XPS 16?
I have a 2.5 year old E1705 notebook. I'm going to upgrade to W7 soon and in the process I thought I'd upgrade my memory from 2GB to 4GB.
I ran Dell's utility from their tech support page and it seems to be the case that the maximum my computer will support is 2GB! Is that possible?
In any case, I ran a diagnostic program (from Dell's utility) and it says my computer has two memory slots, and currently each slot on my computer has "Dual In-line Memory Module 1GB, 533, 128X64, 8K, 200", whatever that means.
I assume the 533 is memory speed (Hz) value. So according to Dell's utility, I am unable to increase the amount of RAM, but I could, for instance, "upgrade" to better chips (i.e., Dell sells DDR2 SDRAM Memory Speed: 800 MHz). Price would be $56.
I'm planing to upgrade Ram Memory of my DELL XPS 15z for running some virtual environments. My question it's about the max amount of memory that the laptop support and the compatible memory modules. In some forums I read about 16Gb, but Dell PcCheckup shows 8Gb as the max amount of memory.
I'm an owner of a sxps 1340 and have the following problem. My system freezes after 5 minutes of operating. It does that 3 out of the 4 times if I reboot. I think this appeared after I installed the videocard update when I received the Dell "Alert".
After corresponding with Dell they advised me to do a system restore, which didn't help. So now I did a factory image restore to bring everything back as initially.
My system has 4GB of internal memory, but if I start task manager I only see 2301MB of physical memory. And my system is using 51% of the total physical memory. This without having installed any programs except the one that came with the factory image.
My question is: Could this be a memory hardware failure?
I like my Dell D620 so much that I just got another one. I've heard that I should not add an additional 1G module to the existing 1G in this laptop, but rather that it is best to replace the existing 1G with either two matched 1G modules or one 2G module. Is that correct? Seems a shame to toss the 1G that's already in there . . .
Could I add a 2G module to the 1G that's already in there? I'm assuming that the bay will accept two RAM modules.
