I'm talking about how smooth the programs run, not the battery life. I don't care that much about the battery life.
The "high performance" power plan is set as follows:
The settings are the same for battery and plugged in PCI Express
Link State Power Management Off Processor power management
Minimum processor state 100%
System cooling policy Active
Maximum processor state 100% Multimedia settings
When sharing media Prevent idling to sleep
When playing video Optimize video quality
I think those that I skipped are not important.
I'm wondering why when it's plugged in it can perform better than on battery. Shouldn't it be the same if the plan settings are the same for plugged in
and on battery
? Could it be some kind of hardware limitation? And also you didn't say anything about the Intel Dynamic Acceleration.
Thanks for your responses
PS: I think I used the once that Windows suggest me for most of the hardware. And I took one from Dell website for the 1720 model for Windows 7 x64 (I think it was just for the touch pad). The video driver
- from nVidia website, and I think there was something more like the SDcard slot that I had to find and install manually. Yeah.. and the bluetooth. I think that's all.
