Dell :: XPS1730 Gets Very Hot On Ubuntu Or Kubuntu 9.04

Apr 27, 2009

I wonder if anyone has tried the latest version of Ubuntu or Kubuntu on XPS1730. This laptop works very cool on Windows XP (Core2Extreme, 8700SLI, 4GB RAM).

It is just hard to find what might be the reason/solution .....

Dell :: Nvidia 3d With XPS1730 And M6400

Jul 23, 2009

I have both the machines mentioned above, and am considering getting the Nvidia 3d bundle.

Can anyone answer the following questions:

1) Do I have to run Vista?
My XPS is running XP, and a quick check shows that only the 32-bit SLI drivers for the 8800s are available: No 64 bit versions on the Dell site.

2) Will SLIed cards still work?

3) My M6400 has Vista 64, but will the 3D work with a Quadro card?

Dell :: SLI Option Suddenly Disappeared In My XPS1730?

May 21, 2009

So after installing the new 185 drivers a couple of weeks ago, I turned on SLI, restarted, and forgot about it.

Now I just checked the nvidia panel and there is no option to turn on SLI. I went to device manager and only one 8800m gtx is listed there when there used to be 2... seems like the computer doesn't even see the second GPU.

tried reinstalling the drivers but still only one gpu is showing up...

Dell :: Time For A Change I9300 > Xps1730

May 1, 2008

My current config is in my sig.

I realy want the 8800 sli setup, but so expensive. I'll have to settle with 8700 sli .

Is this setup good for another 2-3 years?

Processor will probably be an T9300 with 4GB ram and vista ultimate.

RAID won't happen either because of budget limitations.

Is it possible to upgrade to 8800 sli later on?

Dell :: Undervolting Under Ubuntu 9.10?

Nov 20, 2009

So I recently installed Ubuntu 9.10 64bit on my M1530 and have a dual boot setup with the other OS being the NSA's Windows 7 64bit.

This is my first Linux experience and I am rightfully enjoying it. Thus far I have been able to figure things out OK, but I am a total Linux newbie and dont know of a way to undervolt.

I havent figured out if its possible to run RMClock and I dont know of a Linux alternative.

Most the stuff I find on google is years old and Im thinking there have been better solutions since then .....

Dell :: Mini 9moving From Ubuntu To XP?

Feb 15, 2009

I'm looking at ordering a Mini 9 but am disappointed to see that I can't get the fully loaded model (2gb RAM, 64gb drive) with XP.

If I were to order the Ubuntu model with all the bells and whistles (including Bluetooth and 1.3 webcam),

how hard would it be to install XP on it? I've heard that the webcam on the Linux version is not the same as on the XP version so I'm wondering if there'd be a problem with drivers, etc

Dell :: Ubuntu 9.10 Released ... And Its The Most Polished Ever ....

Oct 30, 2009

Ubuntu 9.10 is perfect and to be true it too just works out of the box , given the fact that it has to support infinite pc configurations it is great !!!

Hail 9.10 .. and if you wont try you will surely miss something great. Where else do you have a resume and sleep time of 2-4 seconds. bootup time of less than 15 seconds ..

It doesnt have a lot more to take to catch up .. i am certain that in a year or so you will see emergence of linux everywhere .. Just that volume is what promotes things,

if a lot of people start using linux, a lot of hardware manufacturers will be forced to give better drivers and support.

Apple :: 9400m Only In Ubuntu Using 15' Mbp

Jul 26, 2009

I am planning on getting the mbp with hybrid graphics. I wish to triple boot osx, ubuntu 9.04 64 bit, and vista business 32 bit( or maybe 64bit)

I read that the 9400m is unusable in windows, and the 9600m gt is the only option. I was wondering if I could use just the 9400m in 9.04 to get better battery life, as I do not need powerful graphics in ubuntu.

HP 470 Lockups :: Ubuntu 14.04 Freeze

May 18, 2014

I bought a brand new HP 470 (i5-3230M, 8 GB, 750 GB, AMD 8750M 2 GB) with Linux SUSE operating system. I erased everything and installed Ubuntu 14.04 64-bit (that time still Alpha release). I soon noticed the random freezes (=screen remained as it is, no mouse, nothing) that needed a hard power off (5-sec power button). I thought it was an Alpha issue but nothing improved through continuous updates. Now, Ubuntu 14.04 is LTS and officially released for over a month and I still experience these freezes. They occur always; can be 5 min or 2 hours after boot.
I suspect the ATI's graphic card. I've installed the beta version of the latest drivers (from end of April). They officially support Ubuntu 12.04.4 LTS and 13.10 but there were people on the forum claiming it installs also on the 14.04. I risked and succeeded. But... freezes are still there.
I'm OK to use Ubuntu down to version 10.04 (if that solves the problem). It maye be related to kernel version.I don't want to use any Windows version. I'd rather sell the notebook if Windows is a solution.

Dell Inspiron 7520 :: Installing Ubuntu 12.10 In Separate Partition With Windows 8

Feb 15, 2013

The UEFI thing screwed my head a bit while trying to install Ubuntu 12.10 in Dell 7520, I made separate partition in Windows 8, installed Ubuntu via liveUSB it went well, but Ubuntu didn't load. So, I hit the Ubuntu install again, it asked me to erase previous Ubuntu, I said yes, now the Ubuntu 12.10 works perfectly.

I used boot-repair to repair the GRUB as suggested in some answers in askubuntu, and when I reboot, there was no option for windows 8. I booted to Ubuntu to check the Ubuntu have used whole 1 TB (total space). That means I deleted windows ? If so, any way to get the setup back? I don't have repair disk, nor DVD. Win8 came pre-installed.

I use Windows for windows mobile app development and Ubuntu for Normal use.

This is my new laptop, just purchased today, but this secure bios thing screwed all the fun of using multiple OS.

Anyways, how can I get back the Windows 8?

I'm trying ubuntu from USB (also tried linux Mint) but I can't boot from the USB, I always get "operating system not found" error.

I tried booting with F12 and choosing USB, tried to change boot order in bios and set USB 1st but nothing works. What else can I do ? The usb is bootable so the problem is with the laptop/bios.
