    My New Notebook Has Issues - Please Give Me Some Feedback

    Update: I installed XP PRO and things are so much better. The notebook runs super fast now, no lag or anything. My internet browser's text & pictures are now crisp and clear. The heat still bothers me. According to a few Dell notebook owners, this kind of heat is normal. Crazy.

    My New Notebook Has Issues - Please Give Me Some Feedback

    Ok, I got my Dell Inspiron 6400 today. I got some issues... (1) When plugged in, this computer RUNS really hot. So hot, I can't comfortably rest it on my lap. I noticed that when I unplug the power adapter, the temperature gets a little cooler and becomes warm. The processor is an Intel Core...

    Bought A New Dell 6400 Laptop - Would Like Your Opinion!

    Dell gave me FREE next business day delivery. I just logged onto my dell account and saw that my notebook shipped out today (Friday), but won't actually be delivered until Monday. It seems like I always get the shorter end of the stick when it comes to shipping. I'm already a little...

    Bought A New Dell 6400 Laptop - Would Like Your Opinion!

    But your processor blows mine out of the water. Plus you have a DVD burner, an extra 40GB of space, a 9 cell battery, and the 256MB version of the ati radeon. Actually, that's a little over $300 in upgrades. With the 25% coupon I had, the same upgrades on my notebook would have costed me...

    Bought A New Dell 6400 Laptop - Would Like Your Opinion!

    I completely understand. But that 25% coupon was only valid for 3 hours AFTER I got my hands on it. So it was a rushed decision. And in the past, I've been known to return orders back to Dell if I'm not happy with what I ordered with zero hassles. So... now the ground work has been laid. :)

    Question: My 1080p Display and Mouse Pointer

    More things I've noticed: 1) If I move my mouse over an icon or link and there's a help bubble that pops up, that "help bubble" flickers and vibrates for a second, then stabilizes itself. 2) In my web browser (explorer) - when I scroll the internet page down, all the text doesn't scroll up...

    Question: My 1080p Display and Mouse Pointer

    When I move my mouse over anything that is clickable (web links, winamp buttons, virtually every program), the mouse pointer tends to vibrate or flicker really quickly. I don't know why it does this. Any ideas why I'm getting all this motion judder? Display: Westinghouse 1080p 37" Video...

    Motherboard Question: What AGP version do I have?

    Hiya guys. I'd like to upgrade my onboard video to a dedicated AGP video card. I've read on several boards that AGP has two versions, AGP v1.0 (on older motherboards) and AGP v2.0 (on fairly recent motherboards). I've read that if I use an agp card that's v2.0 - and IF my motherboard only has...

    Audigy 2 ZS Platinum + Z-5500's = Need Confirmation

    Hey guys, thanks for taking the time out to help me. I really appreciate it! Ok, here's a follow up question... I keep seeing the word "S/PDIF" all over the forums I've been reading. Is this referring to the port for on the Z-5500 console that's for the digital input? (coax/optical)...
