Dell :: Upgrade GPU Of Vostro 1700
I see that nvidia has released several new gpus. I wondered if any of this would be compatible with my Vostro 1700 in the PCI slot (it should be a MxM system). if not, how can I make my lap compatible with newer video cards? what parts must be changed?

i need to upgrade my processor (T5600 at 1,6ghz) and i read here than the ideal processor is T9300, but is lot more expensive than T9400 or T9500.
I some forum speak about this processors aren`t compatible with Santa Rosa chipset...

Dell :: Vostro 1700 T7250 Processor Upgrade?
I have a Dell Vostro 1700 that ran fine with Adobe CS2 then I upgraded to CS4...
now xp takes ages to boot up and load applications - I even tried a fresh format and upgrading ram to 3GB.. -
Currently I am considering upgrading my processor from a T7250 to a T9300(or T9900) - Would upgrading the processor solve my problem and make my computer run super fast? or do I need to get a new laptop?
Dell :: Upgrade The Vostro 1700 Video Card
I want to upgrade the DELL vostro 1700 video card (8600M GT). I was thinking for a GeForce Go 7950 GTX (possibly SLI) or a 8800 GTX (again, possibly SLI). Perhaps evena Quadro FX 3500M could be suitable (if there are modifications of drivers in order to play with games).
Dell :: New Vostro 1700, LCD Looks... A Little Off
I just got my new Vostro 1700 with the WUXGA panel, and something just looks.... well, I don't know how to explain it. The left edge of the screen, about an inch in or so, just looks... a little... I guess washed out might be the proper term. The colors don't look as bright, and I feel as though I can almost... see the pixels refreshing or something...
Is this a problem, or a known issue, or something I should be concerned about?
Dell :: Vostro 1700 Dead
My Vostro 1700 just shut off last night and it seems dead to me, just checking that there is nothing else I can try to try and revive it.
basically all that happens now is the power light flickers for a few seconds and then the battery indicator and then it just goes off. The hard drives don't spin up and the screen doesn't come on......

Dell :: Inspiron 9300 And Vostro 1700
First, for any Vostro 1700 owners: anyone done a dual-250GB config either factory or upgrade?
Second, how far can I take my non-SATA 9300? I've been reading some of the parts-swap threads and getting some ideas, as shown in my sig. What's the top CPU I can drop in, and was there a 9300/XPSGen2-compatible (well, retrofittable, anyway) version of a GeForce Go 7800GTX? Also, anyone using Sound Blaster Audigy Software Edition on one of these big beasts?
Dell :: Vostro 1700/ Inspiron 1720
-What is the maximum CPU available?
A: These laptops support Penryn which means that the Core 2 Duo T9300 and even the Core 2 Extreme will fit in this machine, although the latter is not available from Dell as an option when purchasing these laptops.
-What is the maximum amount of RAM supported?
A: 4GB, but Vista 32bit only recognizes 3.581GB. To take advantage of the full 4GB, you need to upgrade to a 64bit OS.
-What is the best video card available?
A: The 8600MGT is the best one available from Dell so far.
-Can I upgrade the video card?
A: As of right now the 8600MGT is the best video card available for these machines, although if you have the 8400MGS you can upgrade to the 8600MGT. If you have the Intel graphics unfortulately you cannot upgrade them.
-Do these laptops have a DVI port?
A: Unfortunately they do not have DVI ports.
-Can these laptops be ordered with Windows XP?
A: The Vostro 1700 can be ordered with XP but unfortunately the 1720 cannot. Dell will stop selling Genuine Windows XP on June 18th.
-What is the best hard drive available?
A: 320GB is the biggest you can go atleast if you order it from dell.com I'm sure that websites such as NewEgg have better deals on bigger drives.
-Is Blu-Ray available on these laptops?
A: No, at least not from Dell.
-How do these laptops do when it comes to gaming?
A: I can play Crysis on near-max settings in DX9 mode. DX10 mode is playable but the settings have to be pretty low. Games like Gears of War and Bioshock can play perfectly on DX10 Mode and X-Plane 9 can play fantastic with everything topped out.
-What is the best screen available for these laptops?
A: WUXGA with TrueLife
-What is the best warranty available for these laptops?
A: 3 Year ProSupport for End Users and 3 year NBD On-site service
-Would I recommend purchasing one of these laptops?
A: Definitely because I think you get a lot of computer for the money.
Dell :: Windows 7 On Vostro 1700 Laptopscreen Drivers?
I've installed Windows 7 on my 1700, and it's all installed fine. I have the latest video drivers from nVidia, and all the others from Dell.
The only thing that I'm not sure about is that under Device Manager for the actual monitor (on the laptop) it just shows as generic PnP monitor. Should it not have a specific drivers for best results?
Dell :: Which Hard Drives Will Work In A Vostro 1700
I have two seperate questions to ask, so will post them seperately.
I have a Vostro 1700 with a 250gb drive in it. When I bought it I had a problem with the laptop and managed to get a hard drive caddy free from Dell, so just need the drive. I know it needs to be a SATA 2.5 drive, but will any drive fit, or do I need to go for any specific ones? Is the Vostro SataII?
Dell :: Vostro 1700 Vista Booting To Black Screen
I've a wee problem here and I'm not sure if there's anything else that I can do with it. It's a Vostro 1700 and it passes POST fine.
Vista starts loading as evidenced by the scrolling bar, but then instead of going to a logon screen,
I just get a black screen with a moveable mouse pointer, nothing else. Hard disk activity comes to a halt.
Dell :: Webcam On Vostro 1700 Crashing (LiveCam.exe) - Any Ideas Or Alternative Software?
I'm having a few problems with the web cam software in my Dell Vostro 1700 laptop.
When I run the web cam manager it displays video fine, but as soon as I start to record video it crashes, saying livecam.exe has stopped working.
I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling but it's still no good.
Any ideas? I've not used it for quite some time, so don't know how long it's been like it. Alternatively, are there any other good free apps that let you eaily record video on a web cam?
I also have Skype and MSN Messenger installed, but wouldn't have thougt they'd have done the damage (as it's only when I try to record that it crashes).
Dell :: CPU Upgrade On Vostro A860
I have a dell Vostro a860. Real nice machine!! I would like to get a better CPU than the Celeron one that it comes with. From what I've read its a pain to take apart the the A860, but I would like to get a little more performance with a better CPU. I have upgraded to 4 gb of ram but it is not much better than the 1 gb it came with. I would like to know what is the best CPU I can Upgrade to on my machine.
Dell :: Vostro 1500 Processor Upgrade.
I am looking to upgrade my Vostro 1500 from a T5270 to a T6400. Does anyone know if this processor is fully compatible with the Vostro? It does have a Socket P setting.
The T8*** and T9*** all have the Socket P. The T64** came out after the 8's and 9's. I would appreciate any help. I don't want to go extreme with it and spend an arm and leg but just get a little boost. Also I know the T6400 will run cooler and use less battery.
Dell :: Vostro A860 RAM Upgrade And Vista-32
I am planing on getting this machine for my home office use. Couple of questions about RAM upgrade.
1. It comes with 2G RAM 1x2048MB stick; I wan to get this up to 4G; Has Vista-32 preinstalled. Will I be able to USE all 4G or less than that (I know Vista reports all 4G as installed), but does it it really use all 4G. Specs say max RAM is 4G. Is it worth getting this upgrade now, or
2. Should I just get the upgrade and when Windows 7 comes out, will it be able to USE the full 4G, even if 32-bit
Dell :: Vostro 1710 Video Upgrade?

Has anyone even tried this? Asking cause I saw on ebay that the are selling the 8600M GS and 8600M GT for laptops and was wondering.
Dell :: Vostro 1310 In Place Upgrade To ULTIMATE ?
note: my process below is for Australia where we do not have access to Microsoft's online AnyTime Upgrade for Windows products...
I'm in the process of purchasing a Dell Vostro 1310 on behalf of a family member who's just started University (College)
I've configured the one we want into a shopping cart at the Dell Store. However, it only comes with Vista Home BASIC included. I can upgrade it via Dell to Business or Ultimate for a further $237. I would rather have Home PREMIUM but Dell does not offer that for Vostro as it's a "business" system. That's fine. But Home Basic is not suitable.
Here is what I'm planning and I want to run it past the experts here before going ahead.
* Purchase the Vostro 1310 from Dell with HOME BASIC included in the price.
* Purchase ULTIMATE UPGRADE for $80 from MS via offer for ADDITIONAL PRODUCTS at the itsnotcheating.com.au site.
* Take delivery of the laptop from Dell with HOME BASIC pre-installed
* Use the ULTIMATE UPGRADE to do an in-place upgrade of the the pre-installed Vista HOME BASIC to ULTIMATE...
Dell :: Vostro 1320, Worth To Upgrade Webcam And HD?
I got a good deal on Vostro 1320 base model and just got confirmation from Dell Canada. Now can any one share your opionion whether it is worthwhile to add the integrated 1.3M webcam for $40 and upgrade HD from 160G 5400rpm HD to 250G 7200rpm HD with free fall sensor for $50 (all before tax)?
I might call them to see if they can manually upgrade for me.
I know I can upgrade the HD afterward, and I usually can find a good deal on 320G 7200rpm Hitachi HD for $70 or so if I can wait.
But my question is how difficult and how much hassle is to upgrade HD myself, and does that invalid the warranty, also what does the free fall sensor mean? Worth to have it?
Dell :: Vostro 1500 Upgrade And Win7 Questions
I am looking at upgrading the memory in my Vosto 1500. It currently has 667mhz memory in it (came with the laptop). My processor is a T7100, a 800mhz processor. If I get 800mhz memory, will it recognize it and run it at 800mhz?
Also, while I am here, has anyone upgraded to a SSD drive in place of the stock HDD? Will the bios accept it? Laptop was purchased in 2007, and I am on the original A01 bios
Dell :: Vostro 1500 Dekstop Icons Disappeared Stops At Vostro
I bought a Vostro 1500. It has been fine and I got XP instead of Vista. 2GB of RAM.
It boots up fine with quick Dell screen, black XP start up screen with thermometer line at bottom, then light blue XP screen then Vostro.
Before the destop icons show up next after Vostro and I am all set. Now it stops at Vostro.
I can get to programs using task manager file open and browse. Not very convenient.
Dell :: Inspiron 13, XPS M1330, Studio XPS 13, Vostro 1320 Or Vostro 1310
im not sure if i want a graphic card in it, as it would just eat battery life and i would get nothing much out of it, since i have no plans in gaming with it.
i will be, however massively watching movies, and streaming movies (99.9% of the web, not dvd player) would that need a dedicated graphic card?
i would also like to know which are the best in terms of :
price, screen quality, build quality, weight, which ones have the same keyboard,current known issues, and are they any rumors or known news of any updates of any of these models in the next 6 months worth waiting for?
ive also bought a m1330 a few months back, but since i had some issues with school, i had to return it and delay my purchase to this year.
the laptop was getting extremely hot, like not even possible to put on my lap kind-of hot. is that issue fixed?
Acer :: Aspire 1700 AC Power Connector
what brand the 4 pin AC plug on the power adapter!
It is almost an Mini DIN connector but I have those. The pins are fatter and the dimension of the circular connector is slightly bigger than the DIN.
My guess is that the connector is used on a number of the 1700 series.
Dell :: Vostro V13 Vs Vostro 3300
I know the Vostro 3300 just came out.
For those who own the V13. Do you miss having HDMI? How's the build quality on the V13? And with the Vostro 3300 out now, the Vostro 3300 would be a better buy, no?
Any differences that I should take note of?
Dell :: Free Upgrade (Clean Vs Upgrade Install)
I should be getting my upgrade (Pro 64) within the next week and was wondering which method is better. I obviously know that it will run a bit faster for the first month or so with clean install, however, my concern is with the activation of the dell free upgrade version. Will it simply be boot the free upgrade disk and install and it will be activated fine? Or, is there more to it? Also, say a year from now I wanted reformat/reinstall win 7... How would I go about doing that with the dell free upgrade DVD?
Sony :: FZ190 Upgrade From Vista To Win 7an UPGRADE Not A Clean Install
With all the hand wringing folks have been doing about the lack of drivers for a clean install of Win7 I thought I'd jump in to the deep end of the pool with my FZ190 and investigate an alternative. My good friends Rajesh and Dr. Pratik have done clean installs of Win7 on FZ models, but I decided to take a different approach... the "dreaded" OS in place upgrade. Partly out of curiosity, I wanted to see if it would work, but mainly because I have a ton of software that would need to be reinstalled, if I did a clean install. That would mean days or weeks of inventorying every thing I have installed, digging up installation media and then installing all the stuff. I just don't have the spare time. So...
This past weekend I imaged my C: drive (all my data and I mean ALL my data is on D:, I am a fanatic about that). MAKE SURE YOU HAVE A BACKUP OF YOUR C: DRIVE BEFORE YOU TRY AN UPGRADE! I ran the Windows 7 Update adviser and it said I had some issues:
NVIDIA GeForce 8400M GT - NVIDIA Not compatible The driver installed for this device is not compatible with Windows 7....................
Dell :: [New] Vostro V13
Looks very nice. Spotted it on the Hong Kong, Mayalsia, China site as well as the reported Singapore site. (See updates below.)
I am looking for other available countries right now. Will keep this post updated.
Just spotted the starting price on the Dell China website: (see US price @ Update 3 below)
Actual translation should mean "ships on the 14th" assuming that means December.
- Ah, available in the UK and Australia also.
- Don't see the C2D option on the UK page, looks like it's still being updated. (LINK)
- Top spec option on AUS page @ a pricey $13xxAUD. Laptops are abit more expensive over there. :-/ (LINK)
Update2: Via Endgaget
Dell :: Vostro Vs Precision
I'm looking to upgrade my cheap consumer-grade laptop with something more robust. My uses are mostly software development as well as photography (Photoshop, etc.). I'm not interested in using this new machine for gaming (that would be a very secondary use).
I'm looking for a 17" laptop, so am considering both the Vostro 3700 and Precision M6500. I understand the system differences between these two machines, as well as the cost differences. Ideally, I'd like whatever I buy to last 3+ years without falling too far behind in technology, but on the other hand the Precision is very expensive (budgets suck).
Thus, would the new Vostro 3700, maxed out on configuration, be a worthwhile investment or, since I'm going to spend the money, should I go the extra mile and get the Precision? What would I miss (other than the graphics card mostly) if I go Vostro?
I've been agonizing over this for a good month or so and realize making a decision like this in a vacuum isn't going to happen, so let me know your thoughts.
Dell :: Vostro 1510
I just received my first laptop, a Vostro 1510 from Dell. The specs are in my sig.
I have a few newbie questions:
1) What is the best way to store a battery, and at what percentage should I store it? Or can I leave it in while using the AC Adapter.
2) I can take out the battery, and run the laptop via the AC adapter right?
Dell ::Vostro Battery Going Bad?
I always keep my laptop plugged in so I don't use the battery. It's primary function is, in case there's a power interruption. This morning my Vostro 1500 (going on two years) started flashing the battery LED on the control panel on the palm rest.
It says 100% full...Charging !
It's been like that for 1.5 hours so I took it out. While in the machine I ran HWMon and it should a fully charged battery and the power output was equal across the board..
Dell :: (vostro Or Inspiron)
Im looking to buy a Dell laptop but i need to decide which its the right one for me to get
Vostro 3500 or Inspiron 1545 both with i3 processor.
im looking to use this laptop for high school and light games like this one for example.
* Windows 95/98/ME/XP/2000/Vista/7

Dell :: Vostro 1400
I have got Vostro 1400 with GeForce 8400M GS and graphic card failed... I tried to reflow the chip and it worked for 5 day and then it go wrong again...
My last chance is change motherboard... I look at ebay and I found motherboard with integrated Intel graphic... Is it possible to change motherboard with integrated VGA instead of one with GeForce VGA?
I think it should work, but I'm not sure and I don't want to be surprised after spending 200 USD on new motherboard.
Dell :: Vostro Refresh
Dell's has been very quiet on their successful line of business laptops. Is there any news or rumors on yet to be released Vostro's? I would like to see something new other than the A860, 1510/2510, and 1710.
