Crash after crash after crash. Parity errors, phys mem dumps, blue screens of death DAILY> i can not use it as i am scrared of losing stuff so i am about to call Dell but just wondered about other people's experiences of these Dells. i have to say i have always had Dell machines and i think they are superb. HOwever, i am starting to wonder with this one. I have one of those feelings that this is due to a conflict between media player and Avermedia TV Card. I just asumed MCE was the next thing so i better make sure i am up to date, but i never wanted it, i prefer PRO. i have to say that MCE is cool when it does work.
One other thing i wonder if someone experienced might be able to comment on.....this machine is NO quicker than my 6 year old Dell 8300 Dimension desktop with only 1ghz processor! I need the most powerful machine i can get my hands on with this laptop, and i feel like i have got a dog, a rip off in fact. Now there is clearly something wrong with teh blue screens, but it should not be this slow surely? i was expecting the fastest machine i had ever used when i got it out the box, especially before putting Office on there. It is no better than my old desktop which i was replacing cos i need something faster now. i do not play games ever, i just want HIGH speed applications. I take it you guys in here would say i should ditch Media Centre and go for PRO? i actually know someone with a copy of Vista which he has for Beta testing. no news from him yet so maybe i should just slap good old fashioned XPPro on which i have in the drawer next to me.
Any tips about all this you clever people?!
Cool forum, can see me spending most evenings here from now on!!
