I am having Dell 15r se 7520,
Both of my left side Usb is not working properly...but my right ones are working fine...
When my Xbox controller connects to left side usb's, light in the controller flashes for a second and gets off while i connect it to right everything goes fine...
Is it a driver issue or hardware issue ?:(

^^check the usb cable.....but before that, install chipset and usb drivers..If the probelm remains, which I'm sure it will, then its the USB cable which needs to be attended.

645m lenovo z500 3dmark11 score. it has i5 3230m(2.6 ghz) and 645m 2gb with 320.18 drivers without oc. With oc it can take 2091

My samsung laptop i5 3210m(2.5 ghz) and 7730m with 13.3 beta 3 mobility driver. It can take 1940 :) So 7730 it better than 640m and even 645m :)

Hey Ratul!! Dont install the new intel GPU driver if you havent installed yet. It turned out to be hidden devil for me, messed with the audio and AMD GPU driver.:cry:

knew it's gonna happen, didn't installed it.. :p

real life gaming benchmarks are more accurate than this, though it's still good to see these results.. :doublethumb:
GO 7730m.. :D

In dv6,installing drivers post 13.1 fixes the brightness to lowest and there's no way you can change that...:(....I guess you guys are lot luckier. ..:)

Fixing the brightness to lowess happens when the intel gpu drivers are messed up for any reason. It happens to me a lot while installing the amd drivers.

i would say yes, it's better to be protected for a peace of mind..
you never what could go kaput in the laptop after a year, coz most of my friends have encountered serious problems in their laptops only when the warranty gets over, i.e., after 1.5-2yrs of purchase..

was about to complete one year battery warranty, so successfully RMA'd the battery yesterday, got it installed today, one more year increased in battery life, again wear level 1%... :mrgreen:
but this time it's a Simplo battery rather than Sanyo, never heard of it, hope it wud be better than high wear level Sanyo.. :chinscratch::ssshhh:

Edit: After calibrating the battery, now it's 0% wear level.. :D :hyper:, for the first time since i purchased this laptop, i am seeing 0% wear level, even when i purchased the lappy, it was @ 2%.. :twisted:

btw guys, anyone noticed that whole turbo series has just vanished from Dell's Website??
There are just two models left now, one 15R Turbo, which is available, and one 17R Turbo, which is available from another online store..

I think new haswell based Laptops are soon ready to be launched, thus they removed these Ivy-B based laptops from their site.. :?

And that 51k 15r turbo is an i7.. :shock:

I checked that compuindia site and they still are overpricing i7 version of 17r Turbo :pullhair: :banghead:

When will Dell India realise that they are not Apple and people will not buy any overpriced **** except from Apple.
