Dell :: Need Help Upgrading Drivers

Jan 1, 2010

Normally I can do this easlly, but for some reason I'm having a hard time bringing my XPS16 Video drivers up to speed.

Maybe it's because I'm used to dealing with Nvidia drivers....

Can someone detail the process?

Sony :: Z, Upgrading From HD To SSD

Mar 14, 2009

I have sony Z591 with 320GB HD.

If I want to upgrade them with 2x128GB SSD, will it be possible?

If yes, what should I do? It is just as simple as replacing the hard drive?

If I upgrade my 320Gb 5400RPM to SSD, how much faster I can gain when I boot up my windows? Right now, my boot time is about 1 minute.

Sony :: Upgrading A VGN-TT

Jan 30, 2009

I happen to have a spare internal WWAN 3G card (Novatel EU870D), does anyone know if I could upgrade a Sony VGN-TT myself by installing this card?

I guess it'll be down to pre-installed antennas, compatible slot/space and SIM card reader.

On a seperate point, I wouldn't mind upgrading the memory too

Sony :: Upgrading SZ LCD Screen

Mar 20, 2009

I have a SZ120P with the standard LCD screen which because of a recent fall cracked.

I got a good deal on a premium lcd housing and LED LCD so I thought I could use that to replace the screen.

I used the service manual to remove the old LCD screen and housing, and replace it with the new LED thin LCD and housing, but when I powered on, the LCD had no back lighting

All that it has on the bottom of the notebook is easy access for the RAM. If I am able to upgrade these parts I would have to remove the entire bottom. So is the CPU soldered on or not

Sony :: Upgrading HD On Vaio Z

Aug 13, 2009

I made the mistake of falling for a CTO Z590 and not getting the specs I wanted, which included a 320GB 7200rpm HD instead of the slower 5400.

So, specs online indicated that a Scorpio Black was the right drive.

I've gotten it and have seen the steps on how to mechanically replace it.

My question, however, is advice on how I should go to transfer my data and switch OS.

I currently have Vista Business, 32-bit installed. I would like to go to Windows 7, 64-bit and then bring over my data. Going to 64-bit requires a full install.

Since I am going to switch over to the new drive as my internal drive, is it possible to swap the drives, install the new windows OS on a partition on the new HD, put the old drive into the external HD, and then transfer at my leisure files from the old HD on the new internal HD?

I'm a bit paranoid that once I disconnect the current HD, my data is at risk. Is this silly, or can I upgrade the way I just described?

Also, what are the benefits of partitioning my new drive for the OS as opposed to having everything on one partition?

Finally, the Windows 7 I have is still a Beta version and I have heard that if I install this version, come September of next year, I will have to do a full new install of a production version. Is this true? If so, what W7 64-bit version is available now? I don't mind paying.

I've been putting this off for a long time (have had the new drive sitting uselessly for over 2 months). I'm deployed to Iraq, so have no way to backup my data other than burning some DVDs and if I break something, no repair facilities.

Sony :: Upgrading My FW-139e Laptop

Jul 29, 2009

I got this laptop of mine about a year ago, working fine, sure, but I had a few questions regarding this and that.

First off, can anybody let me know what I can upgrade on my computer, what I should, and what I MUST (if it's not that MUST!, more like ...must, count it as should) upgrade? My laptop's current hardware is below. Oh, what do you guys think about a hard disk upgrade to a 250gb Western Digital 7200 RPM m!$#$^f#$^er?

Secondly, does any other fw user (or sony user in general) have problems with their dvd drive? Mine has this... "wow" issue, where it reads and writes dvds just fine but doesn't detect cds AT ALL. It's had this problem since day 1. So for almost a year, I'm wtfing the laptop every time i put in a cd.

My Computer's config:
CPU: 2.26ghz P8400 Core 2 due processor
RAM: 3 GB (DDR2)
HDD: 250 GB Fujitsu 5400 RPM
Graphics: ATI Mob Radeon 3470 (256mb dedicated ram) (I'm very eager to upgrade this)
Drive: DVD-RW (Optiarc)
Monitor: 16.4" 1600x900

Sony :: VAIO SR Upgrading Hard Drive

Oct 27, 2009

I was thinking about upgrading to a 7200 RPM hard drive for my VAIO SR190.

I'm sure this voids warranty, but in the event that you need to send the laptop to Sony, couldn't you just put the original back in and they wouldn't notice?

Sony :: Upgrading The Graphics Card In The Vaio Z

May 17, 2010

The standard graphics card is an Nvidia GeForce GT 330m, but the laptop's gaming performance could be higher with a 335m or even a 360m (for its premium price, I would like the ultimate machine if possible). How do these two other cards compare to the first in terms of size/motherboard compatibility/power drain? In other words, could I buy the Sony Vaio Z and successfully upgrade the graphics card aftermarket, and if I did so how would the new card(s) affect the laptop's battery life?

Are there any guides that would help me into the guts of the machine, and could I possibly proceed without voiding the warranty?

Mar 4, 2009

I have sony VGN-Z591U with 32bit OS

Is there any possible way to upgrade my OS from 32 bit to 64 bit on my laptop?

I have check the sony website and they have no driver for 64bit (only 32 bit).

Sony :: Upgrading An FZ11Z With A 500GB Hard Drive

Feb 1, 2009

I've worked out the physical process of replacing the installed 200GB 2.5 inch Hard Drive to a 500GB Werstern Digital 500GB 2.5 inch Hard Drive. Overall it looks pretty easy. It's what happens once the drive is fitted and I turn on the laptop that I'm a bit worried about.

Do I just load the recovery discs as usual or is there something I need to do in BIOS? Also will the motherboard cope with a 500GB Hard Drive?
