HP/Compaq :: Dual 3870s, Dual Screened, Quad Core 17in Voodoo

Jan 2, 2009

It sure does look like that Clevo 18in revealed sometime ago.



Under the hood of the 17.1-inch Firefly we found a 2.4GHz Intel Core 2 Extreme Quad Core CPU, 4GB of RAM, a pair of ATI Mobility Radeon HD 3870 GPUs running in CrossFire mode, and a 7,200 rpm 250GB hard drive. The Firefly spec sheet said the machine is capable of overclocking, but we didnít touch the BIOS.

And a MultiTouch trackpad, Backlit keyboard (with m15x-esque customizable colours), Creative X-Fi audio and a Dual Hinge like the HDX 20.

Lenovo ThinkPad W Series :: W540 - Dual Monitor Display Resolution With DVI-D Dual Link Cable

May 18, 2014

I have recently purchased a W540 and connected to my Dell u3011 30" monitor. I used the Dual Link DVI-D cable that came with the monitor and plugged it into my Ultra Dock. The maximum resolution i can get is 1920x1080? When i change over to a Display port cable i can achieve the full 2560 x 1600 resolution? Is there something i need to do in addition to achieve the full 2560x1600 resolution with the DVI-D dual link cable? I want to be able to connect 2 laptops to the one monitor and only have 1 display port input so i need to be able to use the DVI cable on the 2nd machine while still achieving 2560x1600 resolution.

Dell :: Anyone Have Dual HDDs In Their XPS 16?

Oct 30, 2009

Looking at the new XPS 1645 since I need a laptop before the new year and since it's pretty much identical to the current XPS 1640 in terms of the body AFAIK,

I was wondering if anyone has replaced the DVD drive with a HDD caddy and have pictures of how it fits? Specifically, I was looking at products from nando4's thread:

DIY: Adding SSD or HDD storage using an optical bay caddy

I believe people said it was possible but I lost the post somewhere in that massive XPS 1645 owner's lounge. The questions I had were:

1) The DVD on XPS 16 should be a 12.7mm SATA and I was wondering what specific HDD caddy was used? From the thread above, this might work .....

Dell :: 6GB Dual Channel Ram (XPS 16)

Apr 14, 2010

The XPS 1645 offers choices of 4, 6, and 8GB of ram. Just out of curiosity, how can 6GB of ram be dual channel? I was under the impression that dual channel requires matching pairs, and that 6GB of ram would be one 4GB stick and one 2GB stick. However, the Alienware laptop seems to have listed what I would expect (3 and 6GB configurations not listed as dual channel).

See below.

[XPS 1645]
4GB Shared Dual Channel DDR3 [Included in Price]
6GB Shared Dual Channel DDR3 [Add $225.00]
8GB Shared Dual Channel DDR3 [Add $375.00]

[Alienware M15x]
3GB DDR3 at 1066MHz [Included in Price]
4GB Dual Channel DDR3 at 1066MHz [Add $50.00]
6GB DDR3 at 1066MHz [Add $200.00]
8GB Dual Channel DDR3 at 1066MHz [Add $350.00]

Dell :: Dual Boot : XP And 7

Feb 5, 2009

I formatted my XPS M1530 using this guide (How to: Step-by-step guide for installing Windows XP on XPS M1530) and everything worked perfect.

But when I rebooted, I realised that the computer booted directly to XP and didn't let me choose between XP and 7. Normal, I thought, so I stuck in the W7 CD and selected the "repair" option. This did the trick very neatly, repairing the W7 install. The only problem was that now it will boot ONLY to W7 and I still have no selection screen for the OS.

Dell :: Dual HDD Bays?

Jun 26, 2009

Looking into getting a Dell XPS series, but can't find any info on having dual HDD bay's.

I really like this feature on my HP, but dollar for dollar Dell has much better hardware out of the box. Some one let me know if any Dell's have this. Probably going to wait till Windows 7 comes out.

Dell :: 630 W/ Dual Monitor

Feb 1, 2010

I am trying to run dual monitors on a d630 with Intel 965 video and the laptop, after reboot, will not hold its settings.

It always wants to revert back the VGA screen as primary and ignores the second DVI monitor.

I have tried undocking and removing the dock profile so it can re-establish it but no success.

Dell :: Trying To Dual-boot Win 7

Jan 14, 2009

I am trying to dual-boot Windows 7 on my XPS M1530 which is currently running Vista Ultimate - BUT I stumbled upon a problem. As I understand it, Vista will only allow you to have 4 partitions and magically I have 4 already.

I reformatted the laptop right after purchasing and no longer have the recovery drive. Here is what Vista says I have:

(1) EISA Configuration - 47mb
(2) C: (Vista) - 179gb
(3) Primary Partition - 4.25gb
(4) Primary Partition - 3gb

Dell :: Dual Intel X-25 SSD In M6400

Oct 20, 2008

I opted for 2 7200 RPM drives for my configuration. I also selected the quad core processor, 1gb video and 8gb of ram. I was very close to purchasing with SSD drives, but my first experience with SSD wasn't very good. I purchased one of the first XPS 1330 with the 32gb SSD option. I really bought into all the hype and after about 60 days I swapped it out with a 7200 rpm drive. Anyway, looks like SSD drives have improved drastically.

I was just reading some reviews and performance tests on the Intel X-25 80gb SSD drives. I'm considering buying two for the M6400 and setting them up RAID 0. I really don't care about storage space.

Dell :: Windows 7 Dual Boot

Mar 15, 2009

I'm running Vista 32 bit on my notebook and desktop and I have an xps 1640 on its way with Vista 64. I've always been very happy with Vista but I would like to try Windows 7..

I haven't set up a dual boot system since Windows 3.11, so I was wondering if the process is pretty straight-forward? When I start up the Windows 7 install dvd, will there be an option to setup dual boot?..

I'd like to try this on my xps 1530 first, but I want to make sure that I don't do something that would crater the Vista OS currently on it. Would I be better off waiting for my 1640 to arrive to play with Windows 7?.

Dell :: Dual Monitor Resolution

Jul 13, 2009

having trouble with my second monitor that I am trying to connect.

I am using a DVI to HDMI cable and inputting it into the second screen (It is an lcd tv).

Windows 7 allows me to change the resolution of both monitors seperately. i made my regular monitor the same 1920 x 1200, but no matter what resolution i make the second screen, the edges, top bottom left and right are all cut off, sort of like a cropped version of what i should be seeing .....

Dell :: ATi X1400 With Dual Pipe Mod

Dec 23, 2008

Some of you make think this is probably one of the most retarded things done, that may be so, but I also no use of the other graphics card seeing it doesn't fit in the newer e1705 frame.

I wish it did.. if there weren't any resistors where a pipe for a screw goes, then i would have done it, but.. that didn't happen to be the case, so here I am with a dual pipe X1400.

I just got done playing some CoD World at War, and here I am.. idling 15 minutes later, and I still can't get the X1400 above 125 degrees F, meaning that the dual pipes have dropped the idling temperature down by 30 degrees F!

Yes I have used Arctic Silver 5, I did on the single pipe frame too, but it seriously didn't make that much of a different if one at all, maybe a whole 3 degrees tops. Seriously can't beat this haha, now I should be able to get a little more performance and possibly even be able to O/C this card just a touch to get some more performance out of this bottom of the line card.

Just for those curious, even when I was running CoD WaW the graphics card never got hotter than the CPU core.. I can't believe how much of a difference this thing is making.

Because the dual pipe frame did come from the XPS Gen2/9300 body I did have to make a slight modification and chop off one section of it. And for spending a whole 15 minutes chopping it off, one would never suspect it wasn't supposed to look like that.

And now since beginning typing this the GPU has gone up to 127 but has been sitting there for quite some time now.

One last thing, for those curious... the half hour I did play CoD WaW.. the GPU fan never even turned on

Dell :: M90 Dual Core Processor

Jul 13, 2009

I recently did a clean install of Windows XP Pro on my M90. This is the first dual core I've owned.

After installing all necessary drivers and Microsoft updates, I am very disappointed with the overall performance.

Is there something unique with dual core processors that I am unaware of? Let me give one example. No matter how many times I run disk defragmenter, my hard drive is still around 40% fragmented.

Dell :: M1730 Dual 8800 Gtx Can't Run In SLI Mode.

Oct 21, 2009

I have m1730 with dual 8800 gtx. Had it over a year now and have had no problems with it. Now all a sudden when I enable SLI it gives me a blue screen. The problem is with nvlddmkm.sys. I'v tried different drivers and nothing has fixed this. I googled and looked for similar problems but nobody seems to have any fixes. Also most problems I found on google are when running games. My machine won't even boot up in SLI mode with the original driver. With the newer drivers after i accept changes seems like windows is attempting to load the second card then i get the blue screen.

Dell :: Dual Boot XP And Vista Walk Through

Oct 29, 2007

Note- Vista has ability to manage and shrink partitions->Start->right click 'Computer"->manage->Disk Management->click drive (C)->shrink volume
If you have XP or need to partition a space bigger than Vista will allow, follow this walkthrough with MEPIS:

Step One

download Simply MEPIS 3.3 here:

Step Two..

(requires DVD/CD burner -/+ R/RW)
Burn it to CD/DVD as an ISO image
Vista's Default burner does not include ISO imaging software, It can be downloaded here:
32-bit version
64-bit version

Step Three..
Boot from the CD drive, put Linux CD in drive and boot. It will run Simply MEPIS from the CD, but it will not install

Step Four..
Sign in as: root, password: root

Step Five..
Click on "Run QTParted"- that will open a box showing your partitions. The main Windows partition is usually /dev/hda1

Step Six..
Right click on your Windows partition, and choose RESIZE

Step Seven...
In the box labeled FREE SIZE AFTER, type the size (in MB) that you want the new partition to be. That will create free space.

Step Eight..
Right click on the free space, click on create

Step Nine..
Select partition type (NTFS or FAT32), click OK

Step Ten..
Click on file(top left), then commit- changes will take effect

Step Eleven..
Click close, then click on the K in the lower left of screen and logout, restart computer
Step Twelve..

remove CD and it will boot to windows, check your partitions. Insert Vista OS to install on new partition


For XP installation on new Partition ....
