upgraded samsung q1
I'm putting this in the software forum because most of my questions are software related.
Anyway, My Gf bought the original sumsung Q1 something like 2 years ago before I knew her. For like 1000$ I think its a waste of money with its 512 ram, 40gig harddrive and 1ghz processor (which seemed to be run at 600mhz when I looked). She thought the same when she got it home and after about a month it went in the desk drawer until lately because its so slow.
So I've been bored lately and decided to see how much I could improve it. After upgrading to 2gigs of ram and windows 7 professional its much more useable. Couple of problems though since the upgrade to 7. I can't find a way to calibrate the touch screen anywhere, which is driving me nuts because it's out by about half a centimeter. A lesser problem is the stick and buttons next to the screen don't work aswell as the volume control buttons. Also, despite being in the right resolution for the device to fit windows to the screen(800x480), some pop-up menu's still don't fit which is causing a lot of hassle. I think my final software problem was to ask wether its completely impossible to switch windows 7 professional's language? Because I live in china, and my windows is in chinese....
sorry thats quite a lot, but help with anything would be great. I'd probably be able to figure out more if it wasn't in chinese....
