Have a Radeon 5450. New Dell Computer. Windows7

Have a Radeon 5450. New Dell Studio XPS 8100 Computer. Windows7 64 bit. with 8GB of system memory. Occasionally I get continual blinking of certain program windows. Have there been other reports of this? It seems that when this occurs I might have too many other programs (5 or 6) open but I am not sure that is the problem.

It is acutally a graphical glitch. Make sure you go to amd and update the graphics drivers to their latest version. You can find them here for your specific graphics card. http://game.amd.com/us-en/drivers_catalyst.aspx?p=win7/windows-7-64bit

6 Beeps in your Studio XPS 8100 computer indicates Video Card failure.

The Motherboard is unable to detect the Video Card properly or not at all.

Try removing and re-seating the Video Card by following the instructions in the link which opens up the Service Manual of the computer:

http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/studio8100/en/index.htm

If the computer still behaves the same way after removing and reseating the Video Card, you may have to get the Video Card replaced...check with Dell about the Warranty and if the computer is still covered under warranty, get the Video Card replaced.

However, if the computer is out of warranty, you can replace the Video Card in the computer with any one of these as per your choice:
ATI Radeon HD 5770

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 260

NVIDIA GeForce GTS 240

NVIDIA GeForce GT 220

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.
