Question about Dell Studio 1558 Notebook

The graphics card suddenly stopped responding - Dell Studio 15 - Any jumper switch to bypass graphics card?

My dell studio 15 suddenly stopped working after its initial error "Your graphics card suddenly stopped responding". I tried connecting to the external display source. But it was showing exactly what is showing in my laptop screen. Some blurry lines. But the laptop boots with Win 7 and proceeds to the login screen. Then suddenly, the laptop restarts or shuts down. I thought that the graphics card has the problem and consulted with DELL team. They suggested me to change the motherboard with the graphics card. My friend gave me an idea about a jumper switch which could bypass the graphics card. Is it a viable solution?

SOURCE: Can't eject CD from Dell Studio 15

If you look at the front of the CD drawer you will see a little hole which will take a strong paper clip when it is straightened out.

Push the paper clip into that hole press firmly and the drawer will release so that you can get your disc out

SOURCE: sudden power off of Dell Studio 1558

Check the BIOS for PC Health settings. It is possible that you have put a low value for "Critical Temperature", which makes the Laptop to turn off.

Testimonial: "Yes, this has been helpful. This could be an important clue. I wonder, however, why it would not turn off every 30 minutes throughout the day then. "

My laptop loads about half way and stops


Sounds like you have a problem with the OS (Operating System Software) loading. Either your OS is corrupted or your computer is having a problem detecting your hard drive. You did not specify what model Studio you have. Here is a link to Dell products:

Which is best to buy? dell inspiron or studio?


Studio 15 vs XPS M1530

We specced a Studio 15 for $1457 on the Dell site (the official starting price is currently $1,149), to get it closer on paper to Dell's XPS M1530. We also specced an entry level XPS M1530 for $1798.

We're not entirely convinced the $300 step up to the XPS M1530 is a must.

Major differences are processor and graphics. On our Studio 15 we have Intel's Core 2 Duo P8400, vs the T8300 on the XPS M1530. The P8400 has a lower clock speed at 2.26GHz chip vs 2.4GHz for the T8300, and has 3MB cache (same as the XPS). On the other hand, the P8400 is a 25watt chip, vs 35W for the T series, so in theory it's more battery efficient.

The Studio 15 is also on the new Centrino 2 platform, and has a 1066MHz FSB, vs 800MHz for the XPs.

The other major difference is graphics. The entry level Studio 15 gives you the choice of either Intel's integrated graphics (4500MHD), the better choice for battery life, or 256MB Ati Mobility Radeon HD 3450. The XPS eschews integrated graphics in favour of 256MB NVIDIA GeForce 8600M GT.

Both notebooks come with internal DVD combo drives, though there is a Blu-Ray option on the entry level XPS. The XPS also has an integrated mobile broadband option, which wasn't mentioned on our Studio 15.

The Studio 15's Centrino 2 platform and solid spec stack up well against the entry level XPS M1530. It seems the XPS' advantages here are mostly in terms of its sleeker design, and slightly lighter weight (2.62Kg vs 2.77Kg for the Studio 15).

Studio 15 vs Inspiron 1525
We also configured a top end Inspiron 1525 for comparison. Our spec included Intel Core 2 Duo T8300 (same as the XPS), the same 1440x900 scren as the XPS, 3GB RAM (same as Studio 15), and 320GB HDD (same as Studio 15). Bluetooth and wireless n were add-on modules, and there was no dedicated graphics option, only Intel's older generation X3100.

With the older Centrino platform, older graphics, and without the LED screen, our Inspiron 1525 spec came to $1527 - actually more than the Studio 15.

In this comparison, the Studio 15 stacks up as the better buy, and it's also solid value against the more expensive XPS. If you're looking for a solid mid-range laptop, we recommend you place the Studio 15 on your shopping list.

I hope this helps to make your choice.

I have a dell studio laptop 1555 with intel integrated graphics,is it possible to upgrade graphics card to 1 gb with ATi or equivalent for gaming and How?


I am pretty sure that you can not. Unless you are an electronic expert and you can get a laptop ati mobile graphic card which is compatible with your laptop. These parts are very expensive and these modifications are not cost worthy. If you have the time and money try to change the hole motherboard. Hope that helped!!!

Dell did not release any XP-driver signed for audio drivers for your Dell Studio 1435 because the sound card available on your system (regardless if its integrated or not) was manufactured and designed to work for Windows Vista

I am looking for S540219IN8 - Dell NEW Studio 15 Laptop Config - Intel(R) Core(TM) 2 Duo Processor P8600 (2.40GHz/1066 FSB/ 3MB Cache) Now i have heared this is having heating problems with a graphic card....


If it's true that it has heat problems with graphic card not add that option. My question why would want to buy a laptop that's having any heat problems graphic option or not I would look around a little more before I spent my money on a laptop that may have other heat problems down the road. I would want a system that had no problems like that.
something for thought.
Good Luck
