Apple :: MBP 15 - Bettery Battery Performance Option

Aug 17, 2009

I just got my new MBP 15 last week (my first Mac!) and it is awesome. I just have one question right now:

I noticed on my gf's MBP (2007) that when you click on the battery icon, there is an option for better battery life or better performance, but I don't see that option when I click on my battery icon. I don't see this option under Energy Saver preferences either. I updated all the software the day I got the machine too. Are these options just automatic now on the new MBPs?

Dell :: XPS 1340 High Performance Issue,

Jul 18, 2009

I just bought a Studio XPS 1340. 64 bit windows vista is installed. When I tried to put the computer in High Performance mode, it just shuts off. I have the upgraded 256 "hybrid" graphics card. I kept trying to use it in High Performance but the computer would just shut off after a minute or so.

I called dell, the rep stated that you cannot use high performance mode with 64 bit vista with only 4 gigs of ram (which i have) she said that in order to use high performance mode I need to buy a new computer with 32 bit OS installed, or upgrade mine to 8 gigs of RAM. I have waited forever for this thing and I dont understand why I cannot use high performance mode with 4 gigs of RAM? Is this really true?? Why would they sell a computer that does not work with the configured setup.

Dell :: Mobility Vs. High Performance Solid State HD

Apr 17, 2009

I am looking into an E4200 with the SU9400 (1.4) processor. I understand that individually the high performance would be faster, however when assessing its speed as a whole system (the E4200), is there much of a "real life" value to getting the faster HD?

HP Envy 17t-2100 Display :: Device Manager Won't Detect High Performance GPU

Apr 26, 2014

I have had my laptop for a couple of years now. It is currently the HP Envy 17t-2100 normal edition. A while back long before this issue I had to re-install windows 7 and of course while I did download all the drivers. I was still not able to download the switchable graphics driver / program. I don't know if this is related to the issue or not.
 
The MAIN issue I do have however, is that my laptop no longer recognizes the high performance GPU (The AMD Radeon 6850M). I have tried installing the drivers, uninstalling, and reinstalling again. But no luck.

Dell :: Automatically Changes To "High Performance" When Plugged In?

Mar 19, 2009

Does anyone know whether or not my m1530 laptop automatically stays on "High Performance" while it is plugged in? I'm pretty sure I read somewhere a while ago that this was the case.

Whenever I leave my laptop on overnight I switch the power plan to "Balanced"...is doing this just a waste of time?

Dell Precision M4800 :: Slow Performance Without Proper Power Adapter After BIOS A8 Update?

Sep 19, 2014

I recently updated my Dell m4800 to BIOS A8 with Windows 7 64. I had been using a collection of older power adapters from my previous Dell m4400 without any issues. After the update, wow. A huge performance hit if I do not have the 19.5 volt and 9.23 amp adapter connected.

The m4400 power adapter is 19.5 volt and 6.7 amp. Pretty close right? Not any more.

I do have it connected to a Dell docking station almost all the time. Just checked. They are both 6.7 amp.

What changed in BIOS A8 and what the deal is with the performance? Looks like I need to request a new docking station, but I'm not sure IT will believe my story.

Dell :: XPS 13 "Extended Battery Life" Option In The Advanced Power Options?

Apr 12, 2009

#1 - What is the "Dell Extended Battery Life" option in the advanced power options? What does it do? The help article just says that extends the battery life.

#2 - With the facial recognition software, is there any way to take multiple "logon" images for the same user? Like sometimes I have the laptop on my lap

and sometimes it is on my desk and sometimes it is on the side so I can use with my external monitor and it seems like it won't log me in automatically unless I am in the exact position as when I enrolled it.

Dell Studio 1558 :: Screen Is Permanently Black And Will Not Turn On At All

Apr 10, 2013

I got the "ATI display driver has stopped responding and has recovered from an error" several times over the last couple of days where my screen would freeze for a couple of second and then start working again and would display that message. I thought little of it as it did always seem to work afterwards.

Last night however it got extremely frequent happening at least once a minute and i decided to try and restart my computer to see if that would work. Now when I try to turn the computer on the screen stays black and will not do anything. I can hear that the computer trying to work as the fans are going and the power light is on, it's just the screen that isn't working.

[URL] ...

I found these guides on how to fix the error message but at the moment both are no good as I can't even use my computer to fix the problem as the screen won't work.

I am pretty sure the reason my computer is doing this is because of outdated drivers as I recently did a fresh install of windows and only installed the drivers that came on the CD I was given with my computer. I should have downloaded the latest drivers online.

I am running Windows 7 on a Dell Studio 1558 laptop. I am unsure of the graphics card at the moment as I can't access the computer but I know that it is an ATI of some sort.

Acer :: 8930G Make Bluetooth On Permanently?

Sep 4, 2009

I've had a number of Acer laptops over the years, I've just bought the 8930G as a replacement to my desktop so that I can hide it from my 18 month old son when not in use.

For the most part, I am very very happy with it, it's display is awesome, both built in wireless and Bluetooth, and BD.

I have a few questions.

First off, sound when play BD and DVD's, you can barely hear the voice on any film, had to resort to using travel speakers whilst I was away as I could not hear any voice in any films in a small room. Yet normal sound is amazing, how can this be? Anyone had this problem and solved it?

Second, is there a way to make Bluetooth on permanently? It's a bit annoying having to turn it on all the time.

Wireless performance appears quite slow on my wireless g network.

There is a new BIOS version, 1.13, but it does not say what the changes are, anyone know?

I am considering adding a second hard drive to it to store movies and music, I am considering by a 500gb drive, can anyone recommend a drive?

Dell Latitude D830 :: Screen Went Black / Num And Caps Flash And Scroll Is On Permanently

Feb 14, 2013

About a week ago, the (external) screen of my dell lattitude D830 went completely black. I hadn't got a clue wat to do, so I waited a while, and when nothing happened I turned off the computer. I've been googling for a while, and found something about POST-codes here [URL] ..... apparently the video-card doesn't work anymore (If I start the computer with FN+power, Num and Caps flash, and Scroll burns permanently). Lucky for me my Dell was old, and I had recently replaced it, but I still wanted to use my old computer for rendering etcera. Would this still be possible? I have the idea that the computer doesn't boot anymore (I can't see whether that's true, since there's no screen). Would it be possible to make it boot again, so that I can use my old Dell on a network?

Lenovo X Series ThinkPad :: X220 - Can't Find A Way To Permanently Change Boot Order

Nov 19, 2014

I added a mSata second drive.  Works fine.  Lenovo X220, Bios 1.16.  PC boots from the new drive.  I don't want an operating system on the new drive, just want it for storage.  So I entered the bios by pushing the blue thinkvantage button and can't find a way to permanently change boot order.  I hit F12 to TEMPORARILY change boot order, every time I boot the PC.  Major PAIN!  I tried to enter the Intel Boot Extension Management Engine, but it needs a password and I don't have a password.

Dell :: Why No WXGA+ Option For Studio 15 In UK?

Apr 23, 2009

Just over a week ago there there was an option for WXGA+ display (1440x900) WLED. I was on the verge of buying but I held out for a coupon which I got next day. Problem was the next day the WXGA+ was no longer an option.

I am left with the choice of base WXGA WLED (1280 x 800), the CCFL version of that or WUXGA+ CCFL (1920x1200) @ 100 more. That is too high for me (resolution & maybe price). I really wanted the WXGA+ WLED and am pissed off it has gone

Anyone with knowledge of how dell works have any ideas why they would not be offering it any more or any ideas if it might come back?
