I know this sounds weird but I have a Dell XPS which has Vista. It is about 18 months old. I brought this as my travel computer. Two differnt times, I have gone to a hotel ( different hotels, different cities) and signed on with the hotel wireless. First time it works fine. But any time after that, the computer has progressive bad behavior. At first it will not sign on to the internet and then it will not power up at all. But here is the really weird part, I get home to my wireless, and it is fine. I called my geek guys and they had not idea. Is this some sort of firewall or security setting that I can fix? I hate to think my travel computer is not happy traveling!

I recently flew with my daughter and 13 month old grandson. At at least one of the airports (maybe both, can't remember) they were directed to a separate "family" security line - which was faster than the regular line. Milk, juice, formula, baby food, etc. is allowed in quantities greater than the 3 oz limit for other liquids. Also, they allow ice packs for keeping these products cold. Be sure to take plenty. They generally don't have milk available on the airplanes, we wished we had brought more. Also, take plenty of bottles/cups with you because there is no convenient way to wash them while traveling. I also suggest some empty plastic bags, for discarding dirty diapers or enclosing used bottles/cups that may have some liquid left in them. Good luck with your travels and you can also see this link for excellent information from TSA about traveling with children https://www.tsa.gov/travel/special-procedures/traveling-children
If you want to have Internet access while you are travelling, then I suggest you get a laptop with a 3G USB wireless adapter (this uses the existing mobile phone network) with an Internet Service Provider that can give you the coverage in the areas you want to travel.
I suggest you get a printer that connects to the laptop using an USB cable.
I also suggest you get a power inverter to convert 12volts to mains voltage so you can use your laptop away from mains supply.
You can a 12volts power converter to the voltage requirements of your laptop instead of a power inverter.
Hi, I was searching for this driver on the Internet and it seems to be your lucky day, here I found the IDT drivers for Audio, http://rapidshare.com/files/190141494/PIDT001.zip for Windows XP for the Studio XPS 1640, now because this computer was designed for Windows Vista, Dell will not be responsible for the use of this driver, nor any future damage that it might cause, not that I've seen the case, but Online forums state that this driver is 100% working with no issues, if you happen to have one, please let me know, the link is a rapidshare download server, just follow the instruction on the free user and go ahead.
P.S. Here are the Dell Drivers for Vista, in case when Windows 7 comes out you want to just do the upgrade option with vista, and it should solve everyones issues. http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/driverslist.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=gen&ServiceTag=&SystemID=STUDIOXPS16&os=WLH&osl=en&catid=&impid=
