@techno0065 in an AC room it may seem like the laptop is heating up a lot....but check the temperature that the processor and all are running at (use everest or something like that ) before you decide to invest in a laptop cooler. as per my experience the lap does not heat all that much ...

the latest updates are all available on the dell website under the support...the whole set is around 600MB ...and to really enhance gaming turn off all the bells and whistles of vista ...there are detailed tutorials and softwares for it on the net....

BTW: try a game first..the lap gives pretty good performance even without any tweaking ...

Anybody using Linux (Say Ubuntu 8.10 or 9.04) on Dell Studio laptops? Any issues of drivers for audio, display etc?? I intend going in for Dell Studio 15 and have to use Linux on it.

Also anyone from Mumbai, please recommend a good laptop dealer (Acer, toshiba, HP etc - with good discounts than in authorised show rooms??) in Mumbai based on your experience, maybe in Lamington road etc.. with whom you have done purchases!!!

moreover, though it is advisable to do Dell purchases online, i have seen many shops in Lamington Road, Mumbai, sell Dell machines off the counter (in sealed/packed condition) with discounts of a couple of thousands that the online listed/configured prices? Any experiences on this?

thanks in advance

Did anyone order the creative software upgrade with their S1555? If so, could u please upload the CD contents to rapidshare or any other file sharing website?

I want to run the software as trial and invest on it, if it is worthy enough.

PS: I do not want your serial key, i just need the utility. It is actually a 30 day trial. :)

Hi Guys,
Am having a strange problem... Can someone please help me???
I have an MSI GX720 Laptop for 5 months now, and it is running great with the vista home premium provided with it.
The strange problem is that... i cannot upgrade my Nvidia driver. the 176.XXX version provided with it works... but when i download the latest ones from nvidia after the activeX scanning from the nvidia site even, its not working... While installing it is only recognizing the HD audio drivers and upgrading it. Its not detecting any gcard hardware on the system(the setup). There is no problem with install, as all games and gpuz are detecting the card perfectly and it is also working great without a single glitch so far...
Any ahs any idea about this issue???
Am playing Lost Planet adn i think upgrading the driver will improve performance... Its running great anyways... just want to shift to high gear on the eye candy part.. ;)
