received my inspiron 1420 ( already having issues and concerns) one of them, is, when i went into the dell support center, i clicked on the "about your system" section, and when i click on the Memory tab, it said that i had 3gb Total memory, but just 2.2gb of available memory. What does this mean? and where did the rest of my memory go?... i have a inspiron 1420, with 2.4ghz, 3gb ram, and nvidia8400...
i wanted to buy a refurbished e6400 from the outlet and wanted to know how does the dedicated graphics card on it run? the NVIDIA Quadro NVS 160M With PC-Card. also how is the customer service and do they charge a restocking fee for the business side and do they pay for the shipping back to them?
also how is the build quality of them? are they that great compared to a lenovo y530/550, cuz i like the design of the ideapads but there not as reliable as the thinkpads.
also does dell usually have like free shipping or discounts for the business outlet cuz i know they did for home.
and the Mobile Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 4500MHD With Express Card or like the ones WITH PC-CARD are they much different from the regular 4500mhd or x4500?
Just logged on to dell's driver site. WOW, new drivers dated yesterday for fingerprint. Finally i'm getting native windows 7 bio support for my M4400. Downloaded and installed.
No, nothing, nada, shaite. Still no support. This is ugly. Just read online that Dell listens and now you can get Inspiron 10 with Moblin. What about business users that scream for native bio support for latitude and precisions. Dell needs to shape up on this point.
I bought my E6400 about a year ago now and never got around to upgrading the RAM from 2 GB (on 1 DIMM) to 4 GB. Which memory do I need? I am still running Vista Business 32-bit (haven't looked into the new Windows 7 yet). How much will a 2 GB stick run me these days, and does anyone have a link to the correct memory I need
I have a dell E6400 Latidue with 4 Gig of memory I would like to upgrade to 8 gig. I need for my building control software. Were can I find 8 gig .All I can find is the 4 gig memory updates which is what I already done...
Just got my 1647 set up (replacement for my 1640) and got sent an additional 4gb dimm and popped it in for a total of 8 gigs.
CPU-Z shows 8 gigs, everything works fine..The Memory tab is blank so it doesn't show what its actually running at or its timings or dual channel mode or not...Which caused me to think it wasn't running in dual channel mode..So I got everest ultimate edition and it indeed showed it was working in dual channel so I was happy..But then I noticed it reported the memory was running at 100mhz and in ddr3 terms that effectively is 800mhz...The ram should be running at a base clock of 133mhz or 1066mhz effectively. All the tabs report it as being rated at 1066 and all that registers fine..Its just the "actual clock" reports it at 100mhz instead of 133..
I thought back to the 4gb dimm I recieved..It was refurbished which made me think it was the culprit..So I did some tests. I tested each dimm individually and each time (alone and together) everest reported 100mhz (800mhz)..
So is everest to be trusted? Are both my dimms bad? Whats causing my dimms to run at 800mhz instead of 1066? There is nothing in bios to tweak so how can I change this? And let me repeat, both dimms, when installed BY THEMSELVES (so 4gb total) still report 100mhz...so it cant be the refurb dimm...
My window index score on memory is 6.8..which is about what it was on my last machine which used the same speed ram..
Forgive me if I missed something (or know nothing about RAM), but why is CPU-Z reporting that my DRAM frequency is only 532MHz (Memory tab > Timings; also in SPD tab > Memory Slot Selection > Max Bandwidth = PC3-8500F (533MHz)?
I'm very surprised that Dell only provides DDR2-800Mhz memory support for Latitude E6500 instead of E4300.
I don't understand, the built in chipset of E6500 is a Mobile Intel® PM45 Express Chipset that support DDR3 Memory so why the E6500 don't support it ?
Intel tech specs :
The Mobile Intel® PM45 Express Chipset delivers Microsoft Windows Vista* Premium support with the highest level of Microsoft Windows Aero* experience.1 It delivers outstanding system performance through high-bandwidth interfaces such as dual-channel DDR3 and DDR2 memory support, 1066 MHz system bus, PCI Express* x16 graphics port and PCI Express x1 I/O ports, Serial ATA, and Hi-Speed USB 2.0 connectivity. Use of the Mobile Intel PM45 Express Chipset includes support for Intel® Active Management Technology (Intel® AMT) 4.0, the next generation of remote client network management for business. Use of the Mobile Intel PM45 Express Chipset also includes support for dual graphics with ATI CrossfireX*, for extreme gaming.
Support for DDR3 and DDR2 memory technology
Does anyone try to upgrade E6500 memory to DDR3-1066Mhz ?
Im confused in goin for Studio 15 or XPS 16.and recently they introduced studio 14 with ddr3@1033 MHZ..But studio 14 is too small for me.Should i wait for New studio 15 or .go to xps ??16.Will the studio 15 with 1033mhz processor go with the the old ddr2 ram???
Can I use 16GB of DDR3 PC3-12800 RAM (1600Mhz) in my dv7 even though it would 'exceed manufacturer supported memory'? Â Product Number: XW899AV Processor: Intel i7-2630QM @ 2.00GHz Â Current RAM: Â 8GB (2X4GB 1333Mhz)
I did some research on the Dell M4400 I ordered a few days ago. I got the minimum amount of Dell memory they would sell me of 1GB. I did the same with the hard drive (80GB/5400RPM) knowing I could get it a lot cheaper on my own.
Hard Drive I've found a hard drive (Fujitsu MHZ2320BJ-G2 320GB 7200 RPM 2.5" SATA 3.0Gb/s Internal Notebook Hard Drive - OEM) and a laptop drive comparison/ review in Laptop Magazine. Here is the hard drive listed above @ $69.00 for 320GB/7200RPM. [url]. I'll try it however I have been a WD guy for my desktop.
Memory I have been pricing DDR2 and DDR3 and found other posts saying DDR3 wasn't worth it and will not work on this forum at this thread HERE and will not work in the M4400 however this review says it will HERE
The memory I found HERE is priced @ $57.99 Crucial 4GB (2 x 2GB) 204-Pin DDR3 SO-DIMM DDR3 1066 (PC3 8500) Dual Channel Kit Laptop Memory Model CT2KIT25664BC1067 - Retail
"As a matter of fact the Montevina platform would in general also support DDR3 RAM modules. According to Dell, the standard equipment does not include DDR3 modules, because they still cost much and the availability is still limited while the performance gain of the new chips is rather small. But, they do not exclude that they will offer them later."
i have an acer 6935G and the memory installed is 4GB with DDR3 aswell as GPU which says DDR3.but since i've been browsing the forums for quite some time,i've seen people stating that acer doesn't really support DDR3 on this machines and it acts like DDR2.How can i change it to run as DDR3 than? And how am i sure it runs as DDR2 or 3?
I got a macbook pro and I asked them to give me an upgrade for a 4GB instead of the standard 2GB DDR3. I returned the notebook but they had a policy that I should keep the 2GB DDR3 I asked them to install. This costs about GBP 80. So I ended up with 2GB DDR3 that I paid for the GBP 80. I checked online and I could find them for a much cheaper price. Why then apple has it with this price? Are they any different? Is the GBP 80 the price for the 2GB DDR3 only or inclusive the price difference between 2x1GB and 2GB one chip DDR3. Because in the process I guess they had to take out the 2x1GB chips and insert 2x2GB chips to fill up the two internal memory slots. I asked them but they told me that it is the cost of just the 1x2GB DDR3 increase that I ordered?
I have an Aluminium Unibody Macbook, and was wondering about this 4GB DDR3 SO-DIMM available from Amazon.com, for around US$150. Its available via International Shipping (through one of the vendors), thats why I'm interested in it, as here in Australia we're receiving replies saying that 4GB DDR2 SO-DIMMs do not exist, let alone DDR3 Notebook RAM.
Has anyone had experience with Buffalo RAM? It is 1333MHz, I plan to get 1x 4GB Stick, (was hoping for 2, but it seems like only 6GB is supported anyway).
