Question about Dell XPS M1530 Laptop

2 Answers

Dropped Wireless Connections

I just bought a Dell XPS M1530 from Best Buy. I have an Apple Wireless Router in which my Sony Vaio and iMac connect to flawlessly. However, my Dell drops connections constantly.

Also, once I reconnect the first or second time, anytime after that I try to reconnect fails. I've tried unplugging the router, getting a new IP address, disconnect / reconnect, rebooting my laptop - all the usual stuff but I still eventually have the same problem. Ultimately I have to shut down my computer and wait a long time then restart.

This is not cool and a waste of time. Please help.

    I just bought the laptop 2 days ago. There must be a better solution than buying a new network card. I might as well return my laptop if that's the case.

    Are there no other options?

Make sure the BIOS version is current, latest version is A08

If you are using the Intel or Dell wireless managers, try disabling them and manage the wireless using the Windows Wireless native management.

If you have windows XP and you've loaded XP SP3, then there are some reports of connectivity problems.

I have tired to log on to the internet through my default provider and cannot. I have gotten error messages that read: Sigmatel C-major msinfo32


Sigmatel c-major is your audio driver, not your internet driver. It is possible you have a corrupted driver. I would uninstall the sigmatel driver, then get the dell disc and reinstall it. I would also remove and reload my Ethernet driver, my Wireless driver and my dial up modem driver, just to be sure.

As for the internet provider, You would need to clarify how you connect: wired (ethernet, usb) wireless (wifi, router, cellular) or dial up (aol, netzero, juno on a 56k modem and phone line). Different things can cause internet failures. For example, a cordless phone can disrupt wireless connections. An infected "winsock" can knock out all your network connections, and a bad cord or a bad jack can ruin any wired connection.

Let me know how it goes, Good luck.

Freezing and crashing - dell xps m1530


contact Customer support first and have them help you diagnose it. If you just bought it, you shouldn't try to do anything too drastic. You might want to back up your files right now though because it might get worse or you might have to send it to Dell and they may send you a completely different laptop. Back up, call Dell.

I want to buy a good laptop... I'm unable to decide between two laptops i.e. Dell XPS M1530 and Sony VAIO CS18GN Laptop.... The problem is Dell XPS M1530 screen, if we see it little bit cross the screen...


The answer to this will always depend on who you ask! If this helps I am on my 5th Sony VAIO. I bought my first in 1999 (it was a N505). I have always had excellent performance and reliability from my Sony kit even though it sometimes doen't look the best technically on paper. I have several collegues who have dabbled with Dell equipment and have had poor customer service and reliability problems and have switched to either HP or Sony. This is just my observation and experience...
