    I just got a new Studio 9000 machine. Nice machine, except it can only recognize one USB drive at a time.

I plug in the HDD first, then the flash...

    I have a Studio XPS 9000 with two hard drives. The second hard drive I use as a scratch disk for Photoshop and that is it. Every day, sporadically, it disappears. Poof. Gone.

  • Forum Reply: Re: XPS 8300 won't disengage onboard video and enable add-on video card

    As far as I know [and I've checked very carefully}, the BIOS of the Dell XPS 8500 (gen 3) has no way to enable OR disable onboard video. It just works if correct cable connections are made.. When an add-in card is installed, onboard video is not inaccessible at all. If no -add-in video card is...

    I have an XSP 9000/435t. The SD card reader started giving me problems today. If I insert an SD card (8gb) it asks me if I want to format the card. The SD card works fine in my wife's computer (also a Dell) and it works fine in my camera. I tried the trick of unplugging the computer for a few...

  • Forum Thread: Driver update finders: Good or bad?

    I just downloaded a utility called "SlimDrivers" that CNET seems to like. It says I have 30 out-of-date drivers on my XPS 9000/435MT. Should I trust the utility and install the drivers? Dell stops validating new drivers shortly after product release, but manufacturers don't necessarily...

  • Forum Reply: Re: XPS 435 Owners Thread

    Just took delivery of a new XPS 9000. A few issues: 1. If the cover for the DVD drive is not seated just right, it triggers the tray to try to open every 10-30 seconds. A sub-issue is that when this happens the tray is not strong enough to push down the cover so it just opens and closes instantly...
