Sony :: RAM Limit/upgrade SZ 38GP
I just bought SZ38GP, English XP Pro but I think it is Asian model, similar to European 5 series, the CPU is T7200, and GPU the 7xxx. SZ are perfect for my DJ work, and secondary notebook, I was using the SZ1 till now and wanted to get the best there is from this series, possibly fastest CPU but no 8xxx Nvidia. It came with single 1G RAM, I could put another 1G from my old SZ but would rather have 3G total= add single 2G chip. I remember that SZ1 had 2G RAM limit but cannot find out about the SZ38GP C. Will I be able to use 3G with it ?
Dell :: M1730 X9000 CPU Bottleneck?
so story is, i jump on a new game called Demigod, cpu running at 2.8ghz , after about 5-10mins of playing, i notice both my cores are running at 100% and the game lags like crazy, frame rate goes down really bad.
so i figure, hm, cpu bottleneck for a game.. strange.. lets have some overclock fun - i go ahead and set my x9000 to 3.4ghz, now the game runs great, my cpu cores dont reach 100% and the frame rate is great, all is good and great. only problem with running at 3.4ghz is that after about 30mins-1hr of playing, my m1730 powers down due to what i can assume to be overheating
Sony :: SZ1XPHD Replacement 120gb Size Limit
Still owning an old Sony SZ1XP laptop and was wondering if anyone have ever replaced the stock HD with a newer 7200 RPM HD
Main question i would like to ask if i am limited to a certain size of 7200 RPM HD
For example: in this site [url]
It says the following "up to a 120GB 5400RPM hard drive"
Does this mean i can only fit a harddrive of max. 120gb in the laptop?
otherwise that it is possible to put a bigger sized hd
Sony :: Vaio SRcan't Create Recovery Discs
One of my users has a Vaio SR and is trying to create recovery discs (DVDs) using Sony's tool. Sony's application fails at 24% every time with the following error:
"The disc could not be created.: Missing source folder or files."
It's running Vista and is pretty new, although they repartitioned the drive recently have installed a lot of additional software and may have uninstalled some Sony software. I'm thinking these could be the cause.
If not, any recommendations for third party software that provide similar functionality (full system backup images to disc)?
Dell :: 3.25 Gb Limit, Even With 64-bit OS
I just installed my 4 gb of RAM in my Inspiron 9400, fully aware and knowing in advance that I won't be able to use more than 3.25 of it with my Vista Ultimate 64-bit OS...
My question is: WHY? Is it because the Bios can't address the memory in 64-bit? Just for curiosity, is there a way to make the OS bypass the BIOS (If it's the cause) and fully use the 4 GB?
Dell :: Overclocking Max Limit
I have a e1705 Geforce go 7900gs oc'd to 450/600. Also I have the power supply that is included with the laptop 90watts. I have seen people here in forums that o'cd there card up to 600 core or more. I flashed my rom using the 375/507 to unlock my bios and then i use rivatuner to overclock my video card coz I want to know the limit of my card. And it reached 455/600 so i underclock it to 450 just for safe distance.
Now, I am using ntune to o'c my card and there is no testing whether it will work with the core I specified so I assume again that its 450/600.
My questions will be,
1. What is the max core/mem overclock that is safe for my 90 watts power supply w/o increasing the voltage to 1.24volts?
2. I create a profile in ntune that I enable the overclock (450/600) everytime I will play 3d games and I get it back (370/507) . Is that ok? Will it harm my videocard?
I got a rev 1 card. I am using a windows vista w/ dell performance driver, 2gb ram and 1.73ghz core duo cpu. Weird I got 152 increase in score in 2005 3dmark when using vista to xp . My score is 7196. And also I don't want to use nibitor to o'cd my card .
Acer :: Aspire 5315 RAM Limit
The instruction booklet says there is a 2GB limit, and that I can only use two 1GBs. That sucks because it comes with two 512MBs. Is this true, or could I go buy a 2GB DDR2 and replace one of the 512MBs? It's a Acer Aspire 5315-2153.
Apple :: Bootcamp, Can't Create A New Partition
I want to install windows by Bootcamp. But I've found some problem about a partition on my HDD.
My MacbookPro HDD has 27 GB free space remain. And it's has only 1 partition on HDD. I try to create a new partition, 10-15 GB on my HDD for Bootcamp. I just want to run windows for some program, some games. But it always show "verification failed", "don't have enough space", "partition failed"...etc. on bootcamp and disk utility
I've seen some thread about a partition for bootcamp problem on some website. Some solution such as
1. use iDefrag for HDD then try to create a new partition.
2. Shrink your HDD space (disk utility) , revert , then try to create a new partition by Bootcamp.
3. Try to remove some files, that size is over 1 GB, then try to make a new partition.
4. Backup your harddrive, reinstall then try to create a new partition (I don't want to do this)...
Dell :: I Can't Create A Primary Partition On My XPS M1330
I have a dvd with Windows 7 Beta on and I am trying to isntall it so it will dual boot with Vista on my XPS M1330.
Now the first thing I have to do to dual boot is to create a primary partition for Windows 7 or to shrink the C drive using vista's disk management.
I have tried many different programs to shrink my harddrive or create a new primary partition so that I can dual boot Windows 7 Beta.
Acer :: Ferrari 3400 137GB Limit
I have an Acer Ferrari 3400 and i just replaced my hard drive with a 160 GB drive, however the computer only sees about 131 GB. I've read abit about the 137 GB limit and wanted to know if the motherboard/BIOS for this model supports 48 bit LBA so that i can see the remaining space on the hard drive. I have windows XP pro service pack II installed, but i don't know how to activate 48 bit addressing or if my BIOS suppoerts it.
Acer :: Does The Aspire 5735-733G32Mn Have A 3gb Limit
I've recently posted a question here Total Memory in task manager incorrect after upgrade to 4gb Aspire 5735 where I received some great help. However I've done a bit more research and I'm starting to fear my notebook may be limited to 3gb by the bios/chipset for some reason. I have just upgraded it from 3gb to 4gb. The bios shows 4gb as the installed amount but memtest in dos mode only shows 3000mb total as does windows task manager.
So it appears the notebook detects the 4gb installed ram but only allocated 3gb.
My question is does anyone know if acer has limited this notebook to 3gb total and if there are any suggestions on getting around this limit?
HP/Compaq :: Unable To Create Recovery Disk On New DV5
Just got my new HP Pavillion dv5-1000 laptop and I'm very pleased with it so far, apart from one problem.
The machine came without any backup disks, which seems to be a standard HP thing. So I've tried to create my own disk using the Recovery Manager software. It goes through the first part of the process collecting files, but when it reaches 100% I get an error message saying that the files are more than 0mb and it can't continue.
I've tried using a different blank DVD but get the same message.
It's a pain, and is spoiling my enjoyment of an otherwise excellent machine. If anyone can suggest a way around this I'd be grateful.
I've tried this fix:unable to burn Recovery DVD but the software doesn't install.
Apple :: Software To Create Some Type Of Dvd With Music/photos And Video
We have a bunch of photos and 2 hours of video. I'm searching for the best software to create some type of dvd with music/photos and video. I've done one of that kind (without videos though) with iDVD last year and the result was great I'd say. A couple of chapters with different photos and songs. If iDVD is a good option, can I add videos in the presentation easily? My video is uncut for now, all in one piece. If there a software to bring it from the camera to the computer and cut parts I don't want, make chapters (smaller movies) and put em in the presentation with the photos (with music).
Acer :: 9600 GT DDR2 Or DDR3

And how am i sure it runs as DDR2 or 3?
Dell :: I Got A 4GB (2x2GB) OCZ DDR2 800Mhz Upgrade
I found a nice deal over Dell.com for this memory - yes, I know it's crazy but that was the cheapest place I found, they offered 15% off + FREE Next Business Day @ DHL, which sounds pretty good for me.
I'm going from 2x1GB DDR2 533Mhz to a 2x2GB OCZ DDR2 800Mhz@667Mhz with lifetime warranty for as low as $44 each module. I think will be great upgrade since my 2GB always wasn't enough!
Acer :: Travelmate 7520G And 800Mhz DDR2
I have Acer Travelmate 7520G (Turion TL-58) and upgraded from 2G of 667Mhz RAM to 4G of 800Mhz, however the memory is still running at 667Mhz and FSB:RAM being CPU/6. Chipset here is Ati RS690 and according to Everest it supports 800Mhz DDR2. There is no option in bios to change the RAM frequency or divider.. I have tried updating the bios with no luck.
Dell :: Overclocking ATI 3650 Mobility 256MB DDR2

I am looking to upgrade my laptop very soon....

I want to overclock my 3650, but with the latest drivers (and after the 8.10 Drivers I have not been able to overclock) ...
Was just wondering if there any any new methods in order to overclock my card...
Acer :: Aspire 9410-4933 With 2x2GB DDR2
I see that thread BIOS Update V1.24: 4GB RAM in 9410? was already locked (yes, I missed it by more than a year).
I'm guessing there are still users out there using their Acer Aspire 9410 laptops.
I recently purchased two 2GB DDR2 modules. They both work fine individually and I've tested using memtest86+. When I plug both modules in, the BIOS only sees 3067MB. The Phoenix BIOS in my Acer Aspire 9410-4933 is version 1.24. I would expect that the BIOS sees all 4GB.
Is there any Phoenix BIOS newer than 1.24 that I can use for my Acer Aspire 9410-4933?
I've read that there may be hidden BIOS settings and I'm wondering if anybody can point me to a URL that describes how to un-hide those settings?
Lastly: according to the aforementioned locked thread, the BIOS is the one limiting how much memory is addressable. Is there any way to hack around that?
Dell :: Does The XPS M1710 Hardware (Motherboard/Chipset) Support 4GB DDR2 Ram
I have a XPS M1710 2.2 C2D, 2GB with Windows XP Professional 32bit, and I am planning on getting a 4GB OCZ PC2-6400 DDR2 800MHz Ram (OCZ2M8004GK) for my laptop.
My questions is whether or not the XPS M1710 hardware (motherboard/chipset) will actually support/make use of the 4GB memory.
The manual says the M1710 will take up to 4GB of memory, but some people say it will not (regardless of the OS 32 or 64bits).
I know that 32bits OS (Vista, XP, etc) will only see about 3.25 GB of the 4GB, but I have read that applications such as game and VMware will actually support and use (if necessary) all the 4GB of ram. Is that true?
What if the M1710 hardware does not support the 4GB then no applications will support it?
I also know that the M1710 is only supposed to handle up to DDR2 667mhz, but i will be getting the DDR2 800mhz $10 bucks cheaper than the 667mhz and I read that memory with a higher frequency than you system can handle will usually give you a lower CAS latency(timing) speed, so why not
Dell :: DDR2 Vs. DDR3 In M4400 / Hard Drive Order
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.
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.
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."

Sony :: VGN-FW 460 J/T
I've been looking at the VGN-FW460J/T at Fry's Electronics and I would to know if this is a good notebook? I really don't care about the new i7's that are coming out, because I planning to get one sometime next year when they reach at a least 2.0GHz and at an affordable cost.
Sony :: CS V MBP
having a hard time deciding between these two. I think in the end it'll come down to which screen size I like better.
But anyway, I was reading the review on the CS here and it says the battery lasted just under 4 hours but there's a higher capacity battery.
Sony :: New Z11
I lose about 5~10% of my battery life in a 12 hour period after shutting down my computer and unplugging it from the wall.
Anyone else experiencing something similar? No one else has brought it up for this new Z so I was wondering if I'm just a minority (granted the laptop is new and not many people have it yet)
Sony :: New Z W/3.06 CPU
I am in Shanghai and went to demo a new Vaio Z at a local SonyStyle store with a 3.06GHz CPU and Dual SSDs raided. The unit had Vista 64bit and 8GB of RAM... surprisingly though, no BluRay just a DVD Burner... go figure...
I tried to have someone explain to me if the design of the Z was changed because on my Z (model VGG-Z27GN) internally there is only space for one 2.5" drive (and nothing else really).
If the new Z's can accommodate 2 HDs inside, some major internal redesign had to be made. Does anyone know if this is the case or if maybe Sony is using some sort of two 1.8" Drives instead that they RAID together
