I skimped a little on the hard drive when I ordered my xps1640. Since then I have set up raid on my desk top & notice a huge improvement. Since doing that my xps has started to seem very sluggish. Would there be much of a noticeable speed increase taking out my xps 5400rpm hdd & replacing with a 7200rpm hdd?
I'm trying to grasp this one... but my mind can not wrap around it, so here goes. I just got off the phone with Dell University sales and talked to the rep. Since the i1720 came out in July I have spec'ed and spec'ed and seen that IT DOES NOT COME WITH OR HAVE OFFERED A 7200RPM HD.
I have a e1705, my dad has one, my girlfriend has one, and my uncle has one... all on my recommendation. I have dabbled/worked in the IT industry since I was 10 and I can't believe that this speed RPM is not offered.
5400RPM existed clear back in 1994.
I just bought my GF a 7200RPM 7k200 200GB Hitachi HD with 16mb of cache for her e1705 from NewEgg.
When we ordered all of our e1705's we intentionally ordered them with the cheapest HD's cause we ordered 7k100 7200RPM 100GB Hitachi's from Froogle searches.
Am I the only one that can't wrap his/her mind around this one....
I am hating this drive big time.. performance is good, but the heat on left side of the palm rest is unberable. After few mins of placing the palm on left hand rest it is burning my veins... I still feel the burn sensation for long time even after taking the hand out.
All the guys w/ Segate 250G 7200rpm experience the same? I have 2 E6400s, both have same HD, same heat problem. Seems like a bad designed drive... probably have to start looking at SSDs, but damn those too expensive!
I upgraded the hdds in my DV9543 to 7200rpm's. I didn't copy anything onto the new drives I simply installed Vista onto them, after trying several times unsuccessfully to install XP.
The problem is windows doesnt see the 2nd drive when I go to my computer it only shows one of the drives. Has anyone ever experienced this? Anyone know how to fix it?
I tried to do a search but couldn't find anything, I thought I would try here before HP customer service I have asked them a few questions before and it seems to me that they are reading from a script or something and wouldn't be able to help if they didn't have a manual.
I am trying to find out if you guys have the same issue.
I have ST9500420AS Momentous Seagate 7200rpm 500GB HDD. Since day one I am feeling a light vibration in the laptop next to the touchpad. This is not too bad but is very annoying since it is constantly there.
For those who have a 7200 rpm Seegate drive please see if you have this issue. It is noticeable when fan is off.
Have a Precision M65, 2ghz Centrino Duo, Nvidia Quadro FX350M GPU, 7200RPM HDD, 4GB RAM, and Vista 64 Ultimate. I play WoW on this laptop, and find that the entire lower chassis gets VERY hot. Have installed RivaTuner which monitors GPU temperature, and the GPU seems to run at up to 83C...! This seems to be pretty hot. Has anyone got any similar experience with this or a similar laptop?
which drive is the better choice between the 128GB SSD (MLC) vs 320GB 7200rpm options currenlty on the Z690.
I've heard the MLC SSD's are fast in certain areas, but arent always the best options vs the 7200rpm drives yet... and have some issues with multi-tasking, etc. So basically, my question is how is the 128GB Samsung MLC rated vs the 7200rpm drives Sony uses?
I know that Envy 15 has the ability to use RAID using the Dual SSD option:
From HP website: Versatile storage options include the ability to add two solid-state drives in a RAID-0 configuration to improve the overall speed of the ENVY 15 while providing excellent disk performance.
Now my question: It's possible to use RAID 0 using two HD 7200rpm? The default one comes with 500GB Seagate then I'll buy another one of this + the hd caddy and cable to install it.
Has anyone been able to tell a difference between 5400 rpm and 7200?
I think awhile back i ran some benchmarks, there may have been a little bit of a jump between the two.. but i cant recall if in the real world it was that noticeable.
i took a look at some relative numbers, i think the performance mark diskmark for a 7200 rpm drive was around 388, while on the 5400 it was 255, thats a 35% jump if accurate. Also, i'm not sure if 7200rpm would drain the battery quicker etc..
I had initially orded it with a single 320gb 5400 rpm, i was thinking of adding a 2nd (primary) 7200 rpm drive.
Also.. are these hp dv7ts using sataI or sataII drives?
I just got vista ultimate fro my xps m1730 specs intel core 2 extreme processor 4GB RAM nvidia gforce 8800 gtx SLI I need to know what special drivers do i need.. I have fps drops going from 70 to 30 every 2 min. Would greatly be appriciated if you guys give me a link for the little lcd monitor i cant find the driver. I'm such a nub.
I have a precision m70 and I wanted to know if I can use the geforce 6800go video card that was for an inspiron 9300? Also, can I use the 17" screen from inspiron 9300 or XPS gen 2 on a precision m70? I prefer to use the XPS gen 2 screen because of the darker bezel.
