Dell :: Windows7 Gives New Life To D430 SSD

Jun 22, 2009

I was getting ready to trash my d430. It was running XP and my SSD was so slow, painfully slow boot up, outlook loads, you name it.

I decided to try w7 and now it feels like a new computer. Boots up very quickly and my SSD is now running very fast, no hangups. Maybe it just needed an annual format and reload

I couldn't get a SDHC card to work with XP, nothing over 2gb. I tried an 8gb sdhc card and it also works. I'm going to get a 32gb class 6 card, I'll keep my fingers crossed that it works, and I will have 64gb of storage.

I think I'll hold onto this notebooks for awhile longer.

Dell :: D430 And Mini9 Ssd?

Jan 17, 2009

I'm really curious about this. I own the latitude d430, and happen to have a mini9 64gb pci-e hard disk lying around.

For those of you familiar with the two laptops, the mini9 SSD's are a pci-e card, and the d430 happens to have two internal pci-e slots. As in one for wireless, and one for... well, wwan is what it's *for*, but I think you know where I'm going with this.

Anyways my SSD appears to be DOA (runcore model with usb interface, won't pick up on the usb, so I think it's dead) so I'm putting in an rma, but if that could be used as a hard disk in my d430,

I'd be absolutely extactic- even if I couldn't use it as the boot device, I've got the 40gb regular 1.8" hdd in here that could handle booting and then just run everything off the ssd, it'd be great. Lots of space, and lots of speed. (something like 70mb/s read and 40 write ....

Dell :: Looking To Get A Refurb D420 Or D430?

Mar 21, 2009

I am looking to replace my aging 700m with either a Dell D420 or D430. The laptop is 90% for travel so I am mostly concerned about battery life. I'd like to make it cross country on one charge if possible.

I usually load up a bunch of DivX movies/TV shows on the drive and entertain myself on flights, etc. I do use it a bit for work on the road, but I'm not doing anything crazy so processing power is not much of a concern. Email, remote desktop, etc.

From those with either a D420 or D430, what kind of battery life can I expect from a 6 or 9 cell battery? I would prefer the 6 cell since it does not stick out, but 9 cell is ok since the machine is so small. I'm not opposed to taking a second battery as that is what I do with my 700m right now.

Which OS is going to yield more battery life? XP, Vista or 7?

Dell :: D430.. Will Faster Memory

Oct 15, 2009

if a lower lat memory module will help in a D430? Normaly I think it would but seeing that you can't upgrade the 1G of onboard memory, I wonder if it would help at all?

And lastly, does anyone know if you can swap in a LED screen from a newer E4200 into a D420/430?

Dell :: D430 Hard Drive Failure

Oct 8, 2008

We've got 2 D430's in house and they are awesome. One of them just had the hard drive stop working and it was confirmed by swapping drives between the two systems. These have a 2.5" proprietary connection and Dell is telling me that there is no way to access the drive to potentially recover the data since its not a standard PATA interface. It's got some really small ribbon connector on the drive that hooks into a custom connection to the D430.

Does anyone have any ideas, or familiarity with how we can get access to this drive so we can run some utilities on it? Dell seems to be of little help here and the D430 simply doesn't recognize the drive at all. I'm not sure I would have bought these systems knowing that this was a potential issue.

I'm hoping there is some know interface that will allow the drive to hook into a standard PATA connection to recover data.

Dell :: Inspiron 1100 & Windows7

I loaded Windows 7 onto a Dell Inspiron 1100 and learned the hard way
that I need a WDDM (Windows Display Driver Model) compatible driver
to gain screen clarity. Currently, I can't navigate to a place to even select
correct screen resolution for a 14" LCD (it's 1400 x 1050) I beleive.

At any rate, there's a pulldown menu to select Dell drivers here-

Acer :: Windows7 Recovery

Mar 22, 2010

i recently upgraded my acer 5536 laptop to win7 from vista via the upgrade disc i received after sending off to acer as i bought the laptop last october. i had previously made a vista recovery disc using the erecovery program built into my computer.
now i've upgraded i thought i would make a win7 recovery disc but i find that the built in acer software for doing this is now not on my system.

2 questions:

1. how can i burn a recovery dvd that i can boot from and reset my system to its first day as win 7.

2. if the above is not possible, what would happen if i tried to recover using my previous vista recovery disc. would it put my system back to vista or completely muck everything up?

Acer TravelMate B115 :: How To Install Windows7 64Bit

Nov 15, 2014

today I bought a Acer Travelmate B115 (M41 RQ).

I has a rudimentary Linux installed, which I want to delete and then install a Windows7 Prof SP1 64bit from DVD.

After changing the order of the boot devices and putting the USB-DVD drive first the Travelmate tries to boot from the DVD but then tells me 'Security Boot Error'. I tried it more than 10 times, same error each time. The external USB-DVD drive is working fine on another computer.
 
I also prepared a bootable USB stick, but this one doesn't even get noticed by the Travelmate.

how to get Windows 7 on a Travelmate?

Apple :: MacBook Pro 17" (Core I5-540M) And Windows7 Drivers

Apr 20, 2010

I'm about to receive my very first MacBook, and I will be using BootCamp in order to have both Mac OSX and Windows7 on it at once.

I've always been one of the first one to jump right upon new driver releases etc.. I always keep my eyes open, watch Station-drivers.com every day and things like that.

Now there is one thing nagging me, where do I actually get Windows drivers for the MacBook Pro? Do I need to get Windows7 on it in order to run something like Everest to identify the hardware specifics?

Wont really be any problems with either the graphics card, CPU (turbo boost) or chipset as the MacBook uses the same HM55 (or PM55) chipset like every other i5 / i7 based notebook out there, same goes for the graphics card and the turbo boost feature of the CPU.

What I don't know is where to figure what drivers to use for the iSight webcam, nor the touchpad? I don't even know what company who have manufactured them?

Is there some sort of drivers list for the MacBook Pro? Or do everyone just relay on the standard Windows7 drivers? (tend to hate those drivers, also like some up-to-date dedicated drivers right from the manufacture of the different pieces of hardware in the machine!)

Dell :: XPS Keyboard And Battery Life

May 23, 2009

I have Dell XPS 1530 and I have 2 problems,

1 Ė Keyboard. When I type cursor seems to jump around a lot. I would be typing and suddenly the cursor is in the middle of the previous sentence and itís a mess. Is that something common, is that me or is that something I need to call Dell?

2 Ė Battery life is extremely short. I hear of such thing as deactivating your video card ( I have GeForce 8600 GT) and that supposedly helps you with the battery life. Does this laptop offer such opportunity?
