Sony :: Factory Recovery DVD = Clean Install/Bloatware Removal

May 4, 2009

I'm trying to remove the dreaded Sony bloatware from my new TT. Is it the case that by purchasing a set of Recovery DVDs from Sony, I will be able to initialize my TT without the bloatware? (Then this might save me the hassle of a semi-clean install, and something going terribly wrong during the process).

Sony :: Boot Times For I5/i7 Z: Factory Settings, $50 Fresh Start, Clean Install, Manual Uninstall

Mar 20, 2010

Now that the new Sony Z is out, I think it would meaningful to get a sense of the boot time for this system under various scenarios.

If people could post the boot times of their Z with this information:

- Whether you're calculating the boot with all the bloatware untouched (factory settings), with the $50 Sony Fresh Start (which still has a couple unnecessary programs), a Clean Install, or a Manual Uninstall of all programs.

- And the size of your SSD or HDD. If it is an SSD, it would be nice to know if you can tell us have many SSDs are in the RAID 0 configuration as that affects the speed.

I think this would be very helpful not just for direct comparison, but as another factor to consider in whether to do a clean install, which takes more tech-savvy than some may have.

Dell Studio 1535 :: Cannot Install Windows XP OS On Brand New Laptop

Feb 19, 2009

I just bought a new Dell Studio 1535 and encountered the following problem:

I inserted my windows xp installation cd (as the laptop came with no OS). Windows setup began running, installing a multitude of drivers and files as it should until a message, something in the likes of "starting windows" (up to this point the screen is still the dos-style setup program). After a few seconds, a MS windows blue screen appears, stating that it encountered a fatal error.

Dell :: Windows 7 Clean Install On Studio 1555

Oct 30, 2009

I got my Dell Windows disk yesterday and I would like to do a clean install. I would like to do 2 partitions....

one for the OS at 150 GB and the remaining space in another partition for things like music, pictures, movies....etc.

I was able to delete all the partitions that originally came with the 1555 so that there is one big Disk O Unallocated Space.

I then clicked new to make a partition for the OS. I set it to be 150 GB when I did this it also created another partition at 100 MB. So now I have:

Disk 0 Partition 1: System Reserved Total Size 100 MB Free Space 86 MB Type System
Disk 0 Partition 2 Total Size 146.4 GB Free Space 146.4 GB Type Primary
Disk 0 Unallocated Space Total Size 319.3 GB Free Space 319.3 Gb .....

Dell :: Vista Clean Install Problems On Studio 1555

Aug 15, 2009

I decided to hold off on upgrading to Windows 7 on my Studio 1555 but I wanted to perform a clean install of Vista. So I popped in the Vista installation disc that came with the computer, partitioned the hard drive, and installed Vista. Now it is up and running but with a few problems. The problems are; (1)the ethernet controller is not recognized, (2)the intergrated camera is not recognized (when I open Webcam Central is says "Please plug in a supported webcam), and (3) the displays that used to show up when using the brightness and volume function keys no longer appears. I installed all of the drivers on the drivers and utilities disc that came with the computer but these problems are still there.

I can't install my integrated webcam. After downloading the driver and opening the file installation starts and then suddenly it just ends with the message there was an error during installing.

So the thing I've done are: installing the drivers, which failed.

I've also looked in the device managemer app but could find anything of a camera.

Acer :: Being Prompted To Install Driver For "COPROCESSOR" After Clean Install

Aug 9, 2009

Doing a clean install of Vista and keep getting prompted to locate and install driver for "Coprocessor". Have looked in device manager (yellow mark) but I just don't know what it is. Windows says it can't locate software for it.

Don't know what I am looking for on Acers site under drivers, installed all other stuff OK, Realtek, NVidia etc. Could it be a modem driver. Properties in device manager give no clues, it's listed as "other devices" along with the webcam which I have to sort drivers out for too.

Dell :: Hot Temperatures Studio 1535

May 13, 2009

Well people in my country is summer, and from some days (4-5 days) my Studio 1535 has annoying for me HDD and GPU temperatures.

I will attach old picture and current picture and you can compare the temperatures.
Plus the fan stays on higher speed and it just don't want to turn itself back to normal light speed mode, I guess because high HDD and GPU temperatures.

WC3 is running with average of 45 fps with the ATI HD 3540 GPU.

My other laptop has the same CPU, less ram but have GF 8600M GT and the game runs with 100 FPS. I was wondering why is that big difference between the two GPUs:

ATI HD 3450 - GPU:500 MHz
MEM:500 MHz

GF 8600M GT- GPU:475 MHz
MEM:500 MHz
Both DDR2.

Dell :: Studio 1535 Cutting Out

Jan 4, 2009

i got mine in july and then in september the screen suddenly just went blank and the whole laptop just died.

It wouldnt turn back on and so Dell replaced the motherboard. Laptop came back and worked fine. But then all of a sudden it kept cutting out randomly again but would switch back on.

But then on saturday it cut out and now wont turn back on again. So will have to be sent off again now!

Anyone heard of this problem before? Getting very anoyed by it

Also sometimes the speakers just wont work at all and the CD drive button stays on and keeps trying to eject a disc even if there isnt one in there!

Dell :: Studio 1535 LCD Swap

Dec 11, 2008

I recently received my Dell Studio 1535 after my motherboard on my inspiron 9100 fried. The lcd screen on the 9100 is much better (1680x1050) than the 1535 (1280x800), also i hate glossy screens. After reading this thread

[apparently i cannot post links yet, just search "LCD Swap m1530" in this site and you'll get it right away.]

I was hopeful that i would be able to swap out the 1535 screen and put in the screen from the 9100. I got both successfully removed, but kinda got stuck with the inverters and all that stuff, and got scared because i don't want to break anything. The thing that confused me the most was that the 1535 lcd plugged TWO things (power i think?) directly into the inverter, whereas the 9100 has only 1 thing that plugs directly into its inverter. It seems pretty clear that the original inverter has to be the one the computer uses based on all my googling of this subject, but how can i do that if it doesn't plug into the inverter the same way? can someone please offer me some help in this? i would have like to have contacted the original poster of the thread i linked, but of course, no contact information was available in his profile I may post pictures if i decide to take it all apart again. At the very least, can someone confirm or deny that it would be possible to make this swap? i will be very disappointed if i'm stuck with this low res screen forever...

Dell :: Dismay With Studio 1535

May 18, 2009

I am just not satisified with this laptop. I paid 1200 euro at the time, and in return got a somewhat unstable system. Windows had this bad habit of crashing often, and not shutting down correctly, until I upgraded to Vista 64-Bit.

I am although, happy with the 4GB of RAM, and graphics, you get what you pay for with them, although the Graphics card is the main reason I am going to purchase a new laptop as my gaming is going to have to go mobile in boarding school soon.

Anyway, the silver casing I bought my laptop with is just unsatifactory. I had it sent back twice for cracked lid hinges, both sides. Now this is the third lid casing I have had, seems to be okay, hinges haven't buckled yet, but the plastic is still flimsy, cheap and very very badly painted. I have had this new lid on for 2 weeks now and the paint is already starting to scratch and peel off above the LCD, and is damaged and quite scratched on the palm rest, although that is to be expected.

I have had a problem with the sound twice. It randomly decides not to play through the speakers, unless I apple pressure to the bottom left of the laptop with my left palm. Got the motherboard replaced twice yet this has only been improved but not prevented.

Sounds like a loose connection or bad fitting issue to me.

Lastly, the media keys above the keyboard, ALWAYS freeze. The keys have been replaced twice to, but still it has not been fixed. Every time I turn on the laptop, whether booting into Vista 64-Bit or XP Professional, it happens. Eventually it resolves itself, but is a major annoyance, especially when it decides it doesn't want to eject my disc, and freezes up as a result when I try to eject it by right clicking "My Computer".

Oh, and to top it all off, the keys on the keyboard tend to flick upwards and appear to almost break off, I had a problem with my "K" key coming half loose once.. Not re-assuring.

Sorry to be a pessimist. Just expressing my opinions, not forcing them upon you. Similar stories or opinions are welcome to be posted in this forum. Also, I do not know, but have these problems been resolved in the 1555?

Dell :: Studio 1535 Warranty

Mar 28, 2009

I am having MAJOR issues with my Studio 1535 and I could use some input!

About two months ago, the fan kicked on at HIGH speed as soon as I pressed the power button to boot up. It continued to run on HIGH indefinitely, unless I lifted one of the rear corners a bit off the desk. Then the fan would stop instantly until I lowered the edge back down to the desk surface.

I've spoken with a few other 1535 owners who've had the same issue. Motherboard flex seems to be the culprit and it (the system/mother board) needs to be replaced.

I sent it in for warranty repair the first time with a detailed explanation of the problem. I also detailed a problem I was having with the keyboard that needed to be fixed. They replaced the keyboard and didn't address the fan issue. Immediately out of the box, I powered it up and the fan instantly kicked on HIGH, too.

I sent it back a second time with a detailed explanation again (after a long chat with tech support). They replaced the fan itself. I got it back yesterday and as soon as I hit power, the fan kicked in at HIGH speed. Making matters WORSE, the system gave me an error during the boot sequence that it didn't recognize and couldn't charge the battery! It allowed me to ESC out of the error and booted to my desktop. That's when I realized the Touchpad wouldn't work at all! I had to connect a wireless mouse via USB to do ANYTHING!

To add insult to injury, there's an inch-long scratch on the Midnight Blue lid that wasn't there the last time I sent it back!

So now, I've got the FAN/motherboard issue, some sort of Battery problem AND the Touchpad doesn't work! The scratch is the least of my worries...

Dell :: Studio 1535 Won't Start

Mar 15, 2009

Right now I'm posting this from a friend's netbook, for the record.

So, this is something of an emergency. My Studio 1535, as the title says, is not starting. When I first plug in the power cord, the small white light turns on for just a second and then turns off again.

Normally it stays on while plugged in.

When I press the power button, the white ring of light around the button turns on like normal, and the media buttons flash in sequence, just like a normal boot.

Unfortunately, this is where it stops going as usual.

Dell :: Studio 1535 To Windows 7...?

Sep 18, 2009

asked over at Dell forums but I expect I'll get better responses from the fine minds that browse these boards

I bought the 1535 last year with Vista Home Premium 32-bit. I will be getting Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit on October 22 - assume I'll only have upgrade media for the time being. Here are my questions:

1. Where would I find the correct drivers? Should I just use the Vista 64 drivers for Studio 1535?

2. If I had to format my HDD for some reason, would I be able to re-install Windows 7 with Upgrade media? I've read that the installation will ask for my Vista install disc - will the one that Dell supplied work for this?
