eSATA port on Studio 1555?
I have a Studio 1555 laptop... never used the eSATA port before. Now I want to transfer some files from another hard drive. I have an eSATA cable. There is a port on the side of the case marked "(USB symbol)/eSATA" but the eSATA cable doesn't come close to fitting this connector. Do I need a special cable a... 28 May 2010 19:15
Full install disks
I just spoke with a Dell representative and he told me that all Dell will include is a "restore to factory settings" disk. He said if I wanted full install disks for Win7, I would have to buy the OS separately. Has anyone been able to get full restore disks lately? Thanks, Anne ... 26 May 2010 20:15
