Dell :: Stereo Mix And Mic On A Inspiron 1520?
As everybody probably knows Vista doesn't support/have Stereo Mix, so in order to get it to work I followed a guide from somewhere (could of been here) that linked to other Sigmatel drivers and then installed them in XP compatibility mode,
however, having done that i've now totally lost the use of the inbuilt mic...has anyone else had this problem? Is there a way of fixing this or am I limited to having one or the other
Dell :: Bluetooth Driver And My Sigmatel Audio Driver Not Working XP
here's the problems:
1. The damn CPU whining? I know everyone has it. Dell said last time I called that they're working on some way to fix it. The new A09 Bios didn't seem to do anything for me, or anyone else apparently according to dell's support forum. What's up with that?
2. My laptop wobbles on the top right and bottom left corners. it only wobbles if I use my 6cell batt, and it doesn't wobble w/ the 9 Cell. So does that mean the 6cell's rubber feet thing on the top right corner isn't high enough? Can dell fix that?
3. The "increase volume" media button thing isn't as responsive as the other ones. i have to press really hard to get it to respond. all the other ones i just tap it lightly, and it works.
Here's some questions that I know Dell has no clue what to do with:
4. I'm currently using Vista Ultimate on this only because I couldn't get my bluetooth driver and my sigmatel audio driver to work properly on XP. since dell hasn't released a xp bluetooth driver, i used WIDCOMM 5.1 stack, and the bluetooth headset and stereo headset drivers would disable the sigmatel drivers. really annoying. cmd51229 says he's gotten it to work:..........................
Dell :: Sigmatel Driver Driving Me Mad
I have a e1705, when I got it I had Windows Meadia Center but since then Ive had to format and Im using Windows XP Pro SP3 now and since I put this on,
I had the original drivers from Dell working with the Service Tag lookup on their website.
I had to format again, and this time around, with the same copy of Windows, those drivers, and every other copy of the drivers I can find wont work
Dell :: How Safe To Mix Memory From Two M1330s?
I have two M1330s. One has 2GB of Hynix RAM (2x1GB) and the other 4GB of Nanya RAM (2x2GB).
I am thinking of making both machines 3GB - I think the extra RAM will outweigh the performance hit of partly losing dual channel access.
Are there likely to be problems?

Dell :: Added 2nd HD To A New Studio 17....
and Vista is telling me its only 10 gb! Its a NIB western digital 320 gb 5400 rpm ATA (WDC WD3200BEVS-VATO). When I go to BIOS it shows its a WD 320 but of course it wont let you monkey with anything.
Thru Vista's disc management thingie and thru explorer it only shows that its a 10 gb drive. I've already formatted it twice thru vista but to no avail.
Dell :: 370 Bluetooth And Stereo Headphones
I have a Studio 17 and added a Dell 370 bluetooth card so I can use my bluetooth mouse and it works fine.
I saw a pair of Motorola Bluetooth stereo headphones, and I'm wondering if these would allow me to listen to my mp3's using Winamp, or if I go into a voice chat room if I can use the bluetooth headphones ?
I would like to try them for listening to my mp3's and I think the Dell 370 is A2DP compatible but not sure about that either, I cant find that on the Dell spec sheet. The headphones are Motorola S805 stereo bluetooth phones.
If it does work, does it have as good sound as a wired headset would ?
Dell :: Added Second Hard Disk Studio 17
My Studio originally had a Toshiba, 5400 rpm 250 gb drive in it.
I bought a Western Digital 7200 rpm 360 gb drive to add to my laptop.
I also got the carrier assembly from Dell and I installed the Western Digital into the Studio 17 in drive bay 1 , and put the Toshiba into Drive bay 2.
I had made an image of my C drive with Vista on it, and after installing the new hard drive I put the image onto the Western Digital drive, and all seemed to be well, I booted up and get into Vista, but now I see the C:
local hard drive shows exactly what I had before, and Vista is showing my new drive as Drive F: but it also has all my files on it exactly as the original C image that I made .....
Dell :: D520 Taken Apart + Added A Dust Filter For Fan
Well, i took my D520 apart to give it a clean... And then it hit me to add a dust filter on the fan so it does not get dusty.
I had a OEM speaker out of my Taurus, and that has this very thin cloth like material covering the speaker for what ever reason
might just look nicer then seeing the speaker) I cut a little square out, and then placed it under the fan. The fan holds the filter nicely, and it does not take away from the cooling
Acer :: SetFSB Added Support For ICS954310 And Couple More
SetFSB now supports the PLL ICS954310BGLF.
Now CPUCool also supported this PLL, but the software was a bit buggy and refused to work in Vista x64.
But SetFSB works like a charm.
So, basically, the Acer Aspire 3680; Aspire 5570/Z; Aspire 5580; Travelmate 2480, and a couple of more notebooks can be overclocked easily. Also, notebooks that have this PLL, can be OCed.
Weird, I was able to go upto 200MHz with a Celeron M 420 and DDR2-800 RAM, but I can't go above 170MHz for some reason now, with the T5200 and generic Hynix DDR2-667.
Anyway, I still got a 25% OC. Will get Corsair/Crucial DDR2-800, and try and achieve a 50% OC. Temps are under control atm.

Sony :: Z Type, Windows 7HDMI Sound Output ONLY Stereo
I've been Windows 7 now for quite a while and it's been great apart from the little brightness setting bug. There's also the issue of having no surround sound output via HDMI.
When I was running Vista using the stock audio/video drivers I've had no issues getting the HDMI (to my surround sound reciever via HDMI) to output surround sound, it just worked for whatever media I played.
Since switching to Windows 7, I've been unable to get any surround sound out at all, It's only outputting stereo. I've tried the various Realtek drivers and have had no luck, they don't even allow me to use HDMI sound output when the cable is connected!
Anyone else have this problem? or found a solution?
I'm running RC1 x86 on a Vaio Z (VGN-Z90S - original Jap. model). I've also tried it with earlier versions of 7 with no go, and I'm hesitant to try the RTM version. I kinda want to wait for another reformat until I get my key.
Anyone have surround on their Z through HDMI? (please let me know, what drivers/OS you're running.)
Dell :: IDT/Sigmatel Drivers..which One To Use?
I have an m1530 which I upgraded to 64 bit Windows 7. The default audio driver from windows update didn't allow me to use the microphone, so I used the Vista 64 Sigmatel driver from the dell site.
Because of a slight audio popping issue (many other people have discussed this) I updated to the IDT drivers for the m1645 as Black Russian recommended. Then I searched even further and found this list on laptopvideo2go:
I installed the newest one there (6255) and it seems to work pretty just as well as the other ones did
Dell :: M1530 QuickSet, Sigmatel, ChipsetW7 32bit
I need those drivers and software. I was looking around but I can't find anything (maybe you had luck).
So If it is possible for someone who has already dealt with this to post links, it would be appreciated.
B.T.W - If there is another thread like this, send me messege (with a link of course) and delete this thread...
Dell :: INSPIRON 1501 Audio Sigmatel (NO SOUND)
My speakers went dead after a restart.
Running XP. Had this problem last year, but finally had them going again after install/uninstall of a multitude of drivers, including Sigmatel and LG and other versions.
Now they are dead again. Used the Dell diagnostics utility and the speakers are fine as well as the headphone sound.
But when I am in XP, I need to connect my headphones to have sound from both the headphones and the speakers, weird. Tried all kinds of Sigmatel drivers, but abandoned after 2 days .....
Acer :: Driver - Mass Storage Controller Missing Driver
Have done a clean install of VISTA HP. Keep being prompted to install driver for "Mass storage controller". Device manager shows it with yellow exclamation mark. Windows cannot locate a driver. Looked on the Acer site but unsure what to install for this one.

Dell :: Which Driver I Should Get
The latest Nvidia 8 series XP drivers are 158.22 [url]but on laptopvideo2go.com the highest # driver is 165.01 but the most recent driver is 162.18, and furthermore the "Latest Driver" as reported by the column on the right on the site is 158.28.

Dell :: New Touchpad Driver
There is another, even newer driver available from the E4300/E4200. Thanks to Logan_Nolag for posting that. It is even more responsive than the Studio driver.
The touchpad is now up there with the Synaptics from my old XPS m140.
I tried it on my E6400, and it updated to the newer drivers without issue. I am definitely noticing a diffference in the touchpad.

Dell :: HD 4670 Which Driver?
I currently have the default driver which is 8.612. Looking at the ATI, there is a new catalyst suite that came out a few days ago, version 9.8 for the 4000 mobility series. Should I download that, or should I just go for the one listed on the dell site?

I don't personally use it but I noticed a new driver for the facial recognition software dated 2/4/2010 and it lists Win7 in the changes.
So for those who used to use this and upgraded to Win7 to have it not work should be happy. Also noticed a bunch of hard drive updates I never noticed before .....

Dell :: Network Driver Causes BSOD
When i open the lid, i see black screen with some white lines showing up, then i need to press power button to shut down the laptop.
I have debugged these crashes and I saw that the problem is with network drivers. So i tried updating them and uninstalling them, but it doesn't solve anything.
These crashes happens randomly and from what i have heard utorrent might cause them. Has anyone else had these crashes and how to fix them ?
Dell :: 7950GTX Driver Fix
As more and more 7950 users were complaining of Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) installs on drivers I began to look into the issue personally. I was able to track down its cause to the ever popular coolbits. Apparently, for us 7950GTX users, this registry entry is not so cool. I will give three strategies for repairing this problem. Note that both pre-install and post-install refer to the driver installation.
Caution: All three of these methods will prevent you from being able to use the Nvidia Control Panel to overclock.
This is not a big issue since the control panel interface for coolbits isn't all that great anyway. Just use ATITool, NTune, or RivaTuner to overclock your card if you wish.
Pre-Install BSOD FIX
If you are using a LV2G driver then this is the quickest method.
Open up the driver INF and remove the coolbits line.
It most likely looks like this:
HKLM,"SOFTWARENVIDIA CorporationGlobalNVTweak", CoolBits, %REG_DWORD%, 0xffffffff
So just search for "cool" within the INF and delete the whole line.
Proceed with the installation.
You should be good to go.
Post-Install BSOD FIX
You may be forced to use one of these methods if your driver set does not allow access to the INF.
I will post an explanation later but all you need to do is download this file
Most likely you will have to install it in safe mode (F5 on startup)
Once you install it, reboot.
Your problems should cease.
Start -> Run -> Regedit
Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWARENVIDIA CorporationGlobalNVTweak and remove the coolbits entry
Dell :: XPS M1730 Driver
I just reformatted my computer because after a year of internet browsing and downloading a bunch of games my computer wasn't preforming like it used to...
with that being said, I've been having some problems with reinstalling my drivers.
My Nvidia GeForce 9800m GT video card is being picked up by the computer but is encountering (error 43).
The other day, one of the video cards was working and the other had this error (error 43), now, since I've tried to reinstall the drivers both are not working. When the one was working I had downloaded the driver directly from the Dell.com website. I downloaded the drivers (that are currently not working) here [url] under The "Best" Drivers For Your Laptop. The two files under Windows Vista-32bit (my os) won't extract saying that no hardware was found that was compatible for that driver.
My Computer Specs:
Model: XPS M1730
Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU T9300 @ 2.50GHz 2.50GHz
System Type: 32-bit Operating System

Dell :: New Alps Touchpad Driver From
I just installed it again (first time didn't work!) and it works now on my M1530.. and I must say its pretty awesome.. touchpad feels better than before, the scrolling functions are working fine and also the left vertical zoom in and zoom out settings.
^ Link to the driver in the above post.
Considering many XPS users are using this new driver, here is the link (same as the one in my initial post above, but posting the link here again so that people can get it right away) this is not to mean a repeat post from me..

Added DUP package.
I haven't a clue what the DUP package is. The real change, as far as I can see, is that I no longer have to manually disable the internal speakers in order to get bass out through the external audio device.
Dell :: E4300 GPU Driver
Any idea if Dell will ever release an updated GPU driver to support Flash 10.1 hardware acceleration?
Currently the driver is 188.8.131.525.
EDIT: Never mind. According to the Adobe release notes PDF, support starts with driver version 184.108.40.2061. Looks like we're outta luck until Dell releases a newer driver.
Dell :: FingerPrint Reader Driver
I have tried enrolling many different fingers but the same message is returned. When I installled the driver R173506, I was presented with 4 folders ie x.86vista and x.64vista.
Plus two XP folders. I tried to install from the 64 but an error message was returned.
I eventually installed the drivers from the 86 folder. Just wondering if this is correct? The call centre said I should not be presented with these folder options.
Dell :: NVIDIA Driver 186.28
I am in search of the driver number in the title. It came factory preinstalled from dell and I had the installation files on disk, but accidentally deleted them, defragged, and now they're gone (save for if Power Data Recovery can recover them, Recuva already failed at that ).
Does anybody still have these babies? I ordered my laptop the first of October in Europe, so anyone that has ordered or received their laptop in around now should have these installed. They said they were revision A08, but it's nowhere to be found.
These are the only current drivers that would allow hybrid sli stuff to work, so I really need those. They came with a NVDJ.inf and WHQL certificate. I believe the driver date was around 26/06/2009, and I have scoured the dell ftp site for anything released around that date or later, but found nothing. Also laptopvideo2go doesn't have them. Currently running the NVIDIA notebook drivers, but they don't support the hybrid thing.
