I forget what show it was but I remember a while back some FBI guy in a show was using an Aleinware. Somehow I doubt the FBI would buy machines that look like an Alien head. Course doubt they would buy ones that look like the latest inspirons either.

WOW 1200 baud. My first modem was 300.
What video card does your laptop have?
Also it is better to make sure your current drivers are completely uninstalled before you install new ones. Add/Remove Programs then use Driver Cleaner or another program that completely removes video drivers.
Technically the OEM license only applies to the machine it was purchased with. So from Microsoft's perspective it isn't leagal.
FYI if you install the OEM MCE on a non-Dell it will ask you to activate. Not sure if you can actually activate it though.
