Reply dennis says: January 12, 2008 at 12:41 am ok i will check the greebutton - i called dell and they put a ticket in - i wasnt too hopeful with I have an old Hauppauge PVR150 installed and MC is working nicely with the guides and all. Just curious. sincerly, Michael Scott Reply Keith Combs says: January 5, 2008 at 5:20 am Yea, my video work took a small back seat to Christmas, chores around the house, shopping, visiting relatives, http://elliottwaveresearch.com/dell-xps/what-is-esata.html

BleepingComputer is being sued by Enigma Software because of a negative review of SpyHunter. I documented them in my journal in detail. 2. Hopefully early 2008. It's a nice way to say let's debate. http://en.community.dell.com/forums/t/19252657.aspx

Until the bios recognizes the drive on that port windows will never use it. I asked him to connect me with "Beverly", who would be identified in my case file. I am planning to use a ATI Fire MV 2400 PCIE that will support 4 monitors. If you need a good machine, the XPS 420 rocks.

If you have success with this process, please post and let others know so they will not fear this process.. -Download & Open R165147.EXE from dells driver page in the SATA Reply Keith Combs says: January 11, 2008 at 9:46 pm Dennis, What video card are you using? It is one of the best that I have found. In particular, if the external Dell eSata port is enabled in the BIOS, then each and every boot of the XPS420 complains if there is not external drive connected.

I have this message from the BIOS when I going to External Sata. < I've got drivers for the gtx from Nvidia, but what about all the motherboard drivers with integrated sound/network, the card reader etc?

Be aware that this has never happened on Vista SP1 (would boot into windows normally). Dell is very aware of the AHCI RAID issue, sleep/resume and other minor issues. Reply Keith Combs says: December 28, 2007 at 4:46 am Brian, I doubt the machine and video card will come with a DVI->HDMI adaptor. That's the simple explanation.

I understand that this is due to some config. On Dell's support website I found a case on this. I am using the onboard Intel RAID controller (ICH9R). Thanks anyway 🙂 Reply dennis says: January 11, 2008 at 7:39 pm hey guys - just wanted to give an update - i finally got my dell machine and cable cards

She had my computer download a zip file that contained a driver, and she thought that the sole act of downloading that zip file was the entirety of installing that driver. this contact form Jump to content Sign In Create Account Search Advanced Search section: This topic Forums Members Help Files Calendar View New Content Forum Rules BleepingComputer.com Forums Members Tutorials Startup Dell supplies the product disk and serial numbers for the Adobe Elements Studio products in case you want to reinstall. I have a 12′ DVI->HDMI cable I bought at RadioShack for about $15 on sale.

  1. A case like this could easily cost hundreds of thousands of dollars.
  2. Verizon is coming by on Tuesday to deliver the CableCards that plug into the tuners.
  3. As for the video card question, I see no reason to order the 8800 GT unless you are a hard core gamer.
  4. Did you run into any x64 Driver issues with the Dell Hardware?
  5. Also, going with what Bob said....I check the Dell forums and came up with this post: "Thanks to SmoothSL for posting this in other forums.
  6. I never had to install any suplemental drivers Thursday, June 11, 2009 8:57 PM Reply | Quote 0 Sign in to vote Not sure if this will solve your problem but
  7. However, they apparently didn't ship remotes to a lot of people.
  8. I wonder if Dell is going to address this issue and just send me the goods?

I had spent a couple hours on the phone, and got absolutely nowhere. That key is on the COA sticker on the back of the XPS 420. I called Dell and they couldn't answer my question 🙁 Reply Keith Combs says: December 24, 2007 at 8:54 pm Andrew, the Theatre 650 isn't the same tuner as the ATI have a peek here I got "Dennis".

I was sent a list of KB articles and their associated fixes. I have several programs Vegas, Adobe Premier Elements, etc. For some reason the little LCD screen makes me want this bad boy plus I got a good deal with a few coupons 6600+4GB+500GB+dual Blue Ray+8800 ,,,ect for 1029.

Earlier this year, I looked at buying a dual hard drive dock that connects to a computer using eSATA.

First and foremost, it's a video editing workstation". You mentioned that you purchased the NVIDA 8600 GTS video card in your configuration. I ordered my Dell with the cheapest hard drive they offer knowing I will be immediately replacing the drives through other sources to cut costs. When asked, you will need to supply the Digital Cable product key located on the Certificate of Authenticity (COA).

I currently have a VMC home built system but as you know can't record hdtv with it. Secondly, would it behoove me to go to the "512MB Nvidia GeForce 8800 GT" or have you been seeing the 8600 perform well. In order to use the eSATA port, the Intel ICH9R SATA RAID controller must be in AHCI mode. Check This Out This particular hardware problem would not have come up if I had bought a different brand of computer.

It is entirely possible that some fixes have been provided by Microsoft. Perfect for Internet, Not for heavy usage or gaming however. I got that to work though XP has plenty of issues with firewire too. They can be fixed a number of ways right now but obviously a reinstall of the OS would be a last resort.

Just in case the transfer to "Advanced Software Support" was intentional, I gave my case number, the service request number I had just been given, and went through all the questions I would recommend keeping the questions for support of this nature on their support forum area. FYI, I have the Microsoft Digital Cable Installation Guide, the Troubleshooting Guide and a video on the subject I'll likely post very soon. That is a locked down OEM only offering.

Did it get to the point were it detects Digital Cable, then a couple of wizard pages later to should ask you if you want to activate your cable card. Dell status shows ATI Single Tuner estimated shipment today, and I figured that would explain the missing remote, but it appears others have similar issue?
