Dell :: Windows 7 Discs That Came With My SXPS 1645 With Another System?

Jan 19, 2010

My SXPS 1645 came with Windows 7 Home Premium, but I wiped the drive and installed Windows 7 Ultimate off of MSDN. What I'd like to do is use the Home Premium installation for my parents' admittedly ancient Dell Dimension 2400.

That system needs to be rescued from the gates of hell anyway, so rather than reinstall Windows XP, I figured it'd be worth seeing how well 7 will run ...

Dell :: SXPS 1645 Unexpectedly Wakes Up From Sleep Or Hibernation In Windows 7

Jan 18, 2010

For the last several days my Dell SXPS 1645 laptop running Windows 7 Professional randomly wakes up from either Sleep mode or Hibernation mode at any time during the day. The most it seems to stay off is for ~6 hours. It does not happen when I properly shutdown the PC. I checked the task scheduler, and nothing is scheduled to run at most of the times it wakes up, and none of the tasks are set to wake up the PC if scheduled to run. In the system logs, Windows 7 recognizes that it was waked up, but the "Power-Troubleshooter" event entry looks like this:

The system has resumed from sleep.

Sleep Time: ‎2010‎-‎01‎-‎18T11:10:00.659235300Z
Wake Time: ‎2010‎-‎01‎-‎18T17:43:26.545117000Z

Wake Source: Unknown

Any idea what could be causing this? I'm positive it's not a "Wake-on-LAN" feature as that's fully disabled and I'm only using WiFi anyways. I'm not sure if this happens when the laptop is only plugged in or if it happens on battery as well. (I'm continuing to see if there's a trend on this one)

Some background info: I'm running the original Dell build on the laptop with some of the bloatware removed via Control Panel. I've modded the ATI driver to the latest Catalyst version, which does seem to record the odd event error shortly after power-on (I noticed it when checking the power on event logs)... not sure if that's related.

Dell :: SXPS 1645 Discontinuedi7-820QM No Longer Supported On SXPS

Dec 30, 2009

This is interesting... a friend of mine just tried to order the SXPS with the i7-820 processor and got denied by Dell. Apparently, the 1645 has been fully discontinued, and Dell will no longer be placing the i7-820 processor in any SXPS form factor. They quoted that due to hardware and power issues as the reason behind discontinuing the 1645 (and replacing it with the 1647) and killing i7-820 support. The sales rep said the only offering will be the Studio series for the i7-820.

As a 1645 owner with the i7-820, this is kinda scary that this laptop has been discontinued this quickly as well as the offering of the 820 series chip. We ended up calling a second time, and another sales rep confirmed the same story.

Anyone get similar information from Dell on this? I'm also wondering if this is a "Dell Canada" thing...

Dell :: Playing Blu-ray Discs On SXPS 1640

Sep 12, 2009

When I did a clean install of Vista on my computer, I must have wiped out the program that plays the Blu-ray discs, because it doesn't do anything when I put a disc in. Is there a way I can download this program again, or does anyone recommend another program to use instead?

HP Pavilion M7-1015dx Recovery :: System Backup Image Vs System Recovery Discs?

Sep 12, 2012

I just purchased a new Pavilion m7-1015dx Laptop and need to make the System Recovery Discs ... (which I realize restores the Laptop to factory default).. btw, I've already created the System Repair Disc.
 
However, I read an article about creating a System Backup Image that allows you to Recovery EVERYTHING if lost, all your installed programs, etc.
 
First Question ::: if I do the System Backup IMAGE ... Do I still need to create the System Recovery disc's (mfg's default) also??
 
The Second Question ::: If I create the System Recovery discs do I still need that Recovery Partition ??
 
I am really really wanting to partition my C: drive ... it's huge plus I hate seeing storage folders intermingled with system folders .. Currently using a Symbol/Character to separate them.
 
As of now, I can't partition the C:drive as all partitions are used.. max is 4 and I've got 4 .... C:drive,   System Partition,   HPTools Partition, and   Recovery Partition.

Dell :: IPhone On SXPS 1645

Dec 17, 2009

This is a problem with the P55 chipset and connecting the iPhone in Win7 64-bit versions. Did anyone get this to work on their SXPS 1645 as of yet? Or are we all waiting for a BIOS update from Dell for this? I've tried tons of different things, and for the life of me can't get it to work.

I'd like to get my iPhone working.

Dell :: I7-920XM + SXPS 1645

Nov 5, 2009

Is having an i7-920XM (55 W TDP) in an SXPS 1645 a good idea? I understand that the TDP of the 720QM and 820QM are both 45 W, but do you people think the extra 10 W required to cool it will pose some risk to the other components?

Dell :: What's The Average Time To Get My SXPS 1645...

May 25, 2010

I ordered my Studio XPS 1645 on May 17, and it is dated to June 3rd for arrival.

Does Dell usually take that long or it's over-estimation on their part?

Has anyone else received it during their system during this time?

BTW I live in Toronto, Canada and, as of today, May 25, the status says "In Production"

Dell :: Performance Regarding Gaming On The SXPS 1645

Nov 16, 2009

I'm wondering about certain aspects of the notebook. I know, this laptop wasn't designed for gaming. It's more of a multimedia notebook, which is why bought it.

Though, I'm also trying to get some games for PC. Youtube videos show this laptop runs very good latest games, like Street Fighter IV, Resident Evil 5, Call of Duty: WaW-MW-MW2, Far Cry 2, Unreal Tournament III, etc.

Dell :: Sxps 1645 Boot (grub) Annoyance

May 21, 2010

So I when I first got this laptop a few weeks ago I instantly installed lucid lynx.

So I am dual booting between W7 and lucid. The odd thing I see is that the grub menu seems to take a random amount of time to come up.

Sometimes it takes a few second to get to the OS list - other times it takes more than 10 seconds. Also - sometimes the OS list will come up - but the keyboard will to be recognized for another few seconds (like 5 or more seconds)...

Dell :: Sound Quality On SXPS 1645 Vs. Alienware 15x

Dec 31, 2009

Is the sound quality better on the Dell Studio XPS 1645 than the Alienware 15x?

I am researching the Alienware 15x, with the possibility of returning the 1645 and getting the Alienware.

It seems there are clear tradeoffs. I am not really into gaming, but would prefer a laptop that has complete use of the i7 performance.

It appears that the Alienware does not have the same performance restrictions as the Alienware; however, it looks like many Alienware owners are dissatisfied with the internal laptop sound and the track pad.

I am not looking to hook external keyboards, or an external mouse, or an external speaker system up to the laptop.

Dell :: Intel Turbo Memory In SXPS 1645?

Has anyone tried this or even thought to try this? I want to know if besides differing capacities if there are different speeds/classes of the device that are faster than others. Is NAND flash super fast, or just USB drive fast? There's that extra internal WWAN slot that I wouldn't mind filling up with this stuff once I find out the details.

Acer :: ERecovery Management Failed To Produce System Discs

Aug 29, 2009

I got for my son an Acer Aspire 4520 as a cost effective notebook for an extended study trip and I was pretty much impressed with my first encounter with Acer. It was also my first encounter with Vista HP and I do like it.

The package didn't include any system discs and I understand you create them with Acer's eRecovery Management. I started with creating the factory default discs which required two DVDs. I also chose the option of verifying the data on the burnt DVD. The first DVD got burnt and verified fine but the second DVD failed to verify. This outcome was repeated twice. Acer's tech support was responsive and ordered me a set of discs at no charge, however this incidence casts a shadow on the quality of Acer's packaged support software.

I noticed another glitch: the backup wizards prompts you to insert a disc for burning and when you do that Window's auto play menu comes up and expects you to pick an application to deal with the empty disc. I simply ignored it and the disc got burnt anyway, but this shouldn't happen.

I wonder if and how other Acer owners were able to burn their system discs using this particular Acer SW.
