As per the thread title does anyone know if the Studio 1557 is available with a 900p screen in the UK? It's not listed on the site as an option but I wondered if anyone had asked them as it seems to be available to people ordering in the US.
I think I'll find the 720p screen too low res but I'm concerned that the 1080p will be too high for a 15 inch screen hence the query.
I just got the 720p screen and it looks ok but well, you know, kind of average. The text is not that crisp and the colors don't have too much contrast. I'd like to return it and get the 900p but is it that much better?
Also, is the text going to be much smaller? I spend most of my computer time reading or writing text so having it really small or always having to resize it will be a pain.
I'm gettin a Vaio FW as a replacement to my FZ. The only question I have now is wheter I should get the Xbrite-ECO 1600x900 or the FullHD 1920x1080 screen.
Will the 1920 be too small to actually use? Also my FZ is Xbrite-Hi Color, the sharpness and contrast and colors are VERY important to me that's why I never got an ECO display. Is this 1600x900 "ECO" like all "ECOs"?? (narrower viewing angles, less vibrant colors than Hi Color and so on..)
Or are they the same screen with different resolutions only?
I recently bought a Inspiron 17R SE. Nice machine with 4 USB 3.0 ports. That sounds great but that is also my problem. I am used to work with VMWare on Windows 7 as host OS and XP as guest OS. That is fine as long as there are USB 2.0 ports available since VMWare can only handle USB 3.0 under Windows 7 if it is based on a NEC chipset. I would not have a problem if the machine had USB 2.0 ports.
I followed the instruction on this site, http://www.dell-m1330-info.com/dell_...indows_xp.html
to downgrade to xp. Everything seems fine. I downloaded the drivers and everything. but the thing is that it's EXTREMELY!!!! s...l.....o.....w. it's even slower than those old computers I dont know what the problem is. Is it something I did in the BIOS?
I delete all the partitions except the C drive when it asked me, so Im not sure if that has anything to do with it.
Hate Vista? If your PC is running Microsoft Windows Vista Business or Windows Ultimate and you're fed up with the OS you may be able to ditch Vista for XP Pro. Microsoft is quietly allowing you to downgrade to Windows XP Pro.
Dell, Hewlett-Packard, and Lenovo are just a few of the system manufacturers offering downgrades. Each of these PC makers offer an XP Pro recovery disc to those who request one that can be used to revert a Vista machine to XP Pro.
Dell, HP, and Lenovo customers can request a Windows XP Pro recovery disc to be included with their purchase of a Vista machine - should they want to revert in the future. Customers who already have purchased a Vista-PC can request an XP Pro recovery CD for between $15 to $20 by calling technical support.
I'm want to downgrade my XPS 12 to windows 7. I hate windows 8 and no it will not grow on me. I've been using it for a couple of months now and I hate it. Everything I have tried to to make w8 palatable fails. How can I downgrade and get this crap OS off my computer?
I made a previous fan about the issue I had with Dell's managment of the fan settings. In an attempt to combat this, I thought I'd try installing a previous BIOS to see if it fixes the problem (perhaps there was an alternative fan managment setup).
My 1730 is "In Production" (whatever that means) and I specifically got one with Vista Ultimate so I could use downgrade rights to run XP for a while longer.
Anyone know how I go about exercising these downgrade rights?
I will need a CD Key to install XP Pro, how do I go about obtaining one? Is this a call to Microsoft? Dell? I don't need any media; I have several Microsoft XP OEM CD's from various systems I have built over the years and I have already downloaded all the XP drivers for the 1730 from Dell's site.
i have everything except the audio working properly. after installing all the drivers i can find i end up with a second hd audio driver with the yellow question mark and no driver i try will install to fix it. i start with 2 hd audio drivers the conextant fixes one of them and the modem one is also installed.. what the heck is the other one for? i did use the microsoft one first then the hotfix for sp3 then the conextant and no matter what that extra one will not go away.. also no audio will play in media player or startup sounds etc..
I'm trying to install windows XP Pro 32-Bit on an hp notebook (dv7-3160us) but am getting the blue screen of death. I've tried to use nLite following other threads but none of the sata drivers are working for me.
