    I think the closest prog available for that is CPUID's HW monitor and PC wizard, although I could be wrong...

    Do you think Dell would have the motherboard datasheets to hand? I'm trying to think of a way to jimmy the PLL info out of them for some fun.

    My 1640 is with an Alps touchpad...anyone have link to a 100% working driver for Windows 7 64bit?
    Extra bonus if it supports circular scroll.
    I have tried and tried to find a working one but no :(

    Btw anybody applied the new A15 BIOS update? Anything visibly new in settings, or noticeably different while computer is running?

    I upgraded mine last week, the only difference was the option to activate security tracking (like LoJack) in the BIOS menu. But be warned, once you do it you can't change back.

    Another thing I noticed was that the fan would spin a bit faster (louder) and more often. But then again, I could be wrong.

    I think the Studio XPS models are really good looking.
    Has anyone heard of any news telling about the future of this line?

    But then again, Dell isn't doing so well in the notebook or PC market.

    Hi every one I am new to this forum. Quick question...
    I was wondering whether or not the GPU in the Dell Studio XPS is soldered to the mother board or not. If I wanted to get better frame rates for BF3 would it be wise to get the 8GB ram option? Please reply thank you.


    Dell Studio XPS 1647: Intel Core i7 620M, ATI Radeon 4670M 1GB, 4GB DDR3, 1920x1080, 90W Charger, Windows 7 Professional 64-bit 640GB Hard Drive 5400rpm.

    The graphics are soldered on like the other 99% of all laptops.

    Do think upgrading the RAM to 8GB will help gaming? And if so are there any cheaper alternatives to Dell's memory - expensive.
