Tech Support will refuse warranty service for speaker problems if the VLC media player is installed on laptops with Windows 7. This exclusion is NOT disclosed in the laptop warranty! Remove all players before contacting Tech Support, leaving only Windows Media Player.

It did require a few twists and turns to get the SATA HD drivers at installation as well as other drivers. I hit a wall with the audio driver as I could not find a Sigmatel driver that supported the hardware. I spent hours with Dell technical support trying to get the proper driver to no avail. They gave up and told me I had to upgrade to Vista or buy an external sound card!! I also tried all sigmatel drivers posted on the Dell website for all notebooks (Inspiron, Vostro, ...) without any success. I checked many forums on the web again without results. I finally had to return the laptop, somewhat reluctantly, before the 30 day expiry period!!! :-(
