    2) Yes you will be able to install win 7 from dvd that came with your laptop. It will install a clean version.

    3) Use the key from windows sticker at the bottom of our laptop. It will activate your laptop.

    4) I am not sure about this question but if you format your hardisk you will not be able to create a recovery drive separately like it came by deafult. Also the recovery disk consist of windows 7 with all bloatware like the win 7 came with your laptop.


    But before you clean install windows 7 make sure you download all drivers + software(webcam software, fastaccess software + dell quickset so you get the touch buttons at the top of the palmrest + other dell software only if you need them).

    First install chipset driver and then all other drivers. Also install Inter graphics driver first and then nvidia driver and intel wireless driver before widi.

    for ram usage I think their are many windows gadget search google or windows gadget. Like CPU Meter Gadget which available by default in windows 7 gadgets.

    okay mate
    I will not install clean os now as it may take much time, i will uninstall all useless software from the dell. Also i will install the core temp to see if my laptop is doing good. There is a nice thread in notebookreview for support of dell xps15

    Call Dell Technical Support, they have a hidden partition in every laptop that lets you re-install the OS quickly (On the fly)

    With Dell Softwares [most likely] (Had worked with the Dell Contact Center for 2 months), where they told they keep a recovery partition in every lappy/desktop they sell. Don't remember the exact key to hit to go into the partition, but you have to call the tech support to go thru the process.

    Gosh, am GLAD i quit that s**tty place
