    if you are in the uk private message me I got two spare speaker sets I give one if you pay the postage

    if you have striped the laptop down one of the problems you have with sound is if you screw the base speaker to tight the rubber grommets should not be to tight otherwise the sound is realy tinny you want to check that first

    I have no idea.
    When received by courier, it is tested with a universal charger to see if it turns on. It was then handed over to my sister.
    Now the laptop is in her apartment and she is not in Bulgaria.
    Works like me abroad.
    I had some pictures but I can't find them.
    If I find something, I'll write to you.
    Why do you ask?

    Because I'm not an overclocker and I'm not very clear on these things.
    I ask because 800MHz memory has a higher latency and if it goes down to 667MHz I'm not sure if the latency is reduced either.

    I think I have my answer, as Dragons with the ATI are almost certainly from 2007. There was some question about whether the WUXGA screen had an earlier and later iteration. According to the president of Chimei (maker of the screen), with whom I spoke, there was only one version made, over approximately a 1 1/2 year period.

    So lower latency is better, but the ram MHz is speed. Since you're not overclocking the 800MHz ram is not necessary. The other thing to look at for RAM is timings here lower is better. Timings will be in this format X-X-X-XX. The ram I bought is 667MHz with 5-5-5-15 as the timings. I was also looking at RAM on Newegg I can't seem to find the exact one anymore but I remember the timing was 6-6-6-6-something. which isn't much of a difference but being that it was cheaper and faster (despite being slower MHz wise) I went with the cheaper option.

    Who can update the first post? I think we should add that you can get 2-3 USB 3.0 ports with an expresscard 54 (or 34 if you want a gap for some reason) Anyone else know of good or interesting express card's? What about the expansion port 3? is that useful?

    As far as I remember, it doesn't matter what timings you are looking for. The Dragon will set its own 5-5-5-15 for 667MHz
    I'm using an Esata+USB 3.0 express card, one USB 3 port is enough for me.
    That's a docking station port.

    I think the WUXGA screen must be the same one with either the ATI or nVidia video chipset. Although I could be wrong, my understanding is there were only two displays with two different resolutions ever speced for the Dragon regardless of the video chip on the motherboard.

    BTW, in regards to your earlier question about the manufacture date of my HDX, the laptop came equipped from the factory with the X7900 CPU. There is an "Intel Core2 Extreme" decal on the palmrest of this machine if that helps narrow it down.

    This is the laptop I got here in Finland without a screen!
    This is the main hardware.
    Some of the inscriptions may help.

    It can be seen that the models come with different video cards!
