Apple :: MBP With A Faulty Nvidia Chip

Apr 20, 2009

I have a 1.5 yr old macbook pro 15", 2.4ghz, 160gb hd, 2 gb ram... The video card burned out.. everything else is great...

If I buy this for cheap, can I possibly head to an Apple store, and get it repaired for free?

Dell :: If Nvidia Know The 8600 GT Is Faulty

Dec 31, 2008

I understand that sometimes mistakes are made and early versions of products are less reliable, but Nvidia seem to know exactly what the problem with the 8600 is but make no attempt to fix it...

Apple :: Photoshop CS4 Corrupt Graphics - Does This Mean My 9600 Is Faulty

Jan 2, 2009

So Photoshop CS 4 is giving me corrupt graphics. It's very random, I've only come across it a couple of times.

Here's the picture: Click! (1Mb png)

Does this mean that my 9600 is faulty, since CS 4 is using my GPU?

(the only reason I linked the picture is because it's 1680x1050 and 1MB, and I didn't want to stretch the page)

Apple :: MBP And NVIDIA Defect

Jul 2, 2009

I have the 2.2GHz Core 2 Duo MBP. I think that it might be one of the models affected by that NVIDIA defect that was reported a few months ago. I've had it for over a year and don't have the extended warranty. The computer is thankfully working fine right now but I'm wondering if any of you guys know how Apple has been dealing with this issue and if they will fix out of warranty MBP's that show up with this particular problem - free of charge.

Dell :: Mobile Broadband 5600 Chip

Apr 29, 2009

Dell announced, a few weeks ago, a new replacement for the 57XX and 55XX Mobile Broadband MiniPCIe cards that they are installing as integrated WWAN in select notebooks.

The new Dell Wireless 5600 Mobile Broadband card is based on the Qualcomm Gobi chipset, and therefore supports all major NA carriers (CDMA and GSM/HSPA), and all global UMTS/HSPA bands.

As a result, you can theoretically use this one integrated device on AT&T, Verizon, Sprint, O2, Telus, Rogers, Fido, T-Mobile, or any other EVDO or HSPA service globally, just by activating with the provider (CDMA/EVDO) or using the providers SIM card (GSM/HSPA).

Dell XPS 15 :: How To Configure On-chip MSata Encryption

May 24, 2014

I have just purchased an XPS15. I understand that the mSata drive (a Samsung 841 512GB) supports on-chip encryption, however I'm struggling a bit to understand how to enable this. I have read some posts which seem to suggest that it's as simple as going in to the BIOS and configuring the "HDD Password", option in the security section, however this seems just a little too easy (I was expecting to have to create a public/ private keypair or something to that effect).

How to authoritatively confirm whether this is indeed the correct way to configure encryption on the disk? Or is this just a basic BIOS level password which somehow protects the disk simply by virtue of the fact that it won't allow the machine to boot unless the correct password is entered?

Apple :: Failure Of Nvidia Gpu In New Unibody Macbook's

May 18, 2009

this might've been asked but do the new unibody macbook/macbook pro gpu's (9400m, 9600m gt) have the same problems in manufacturing that caused higher than normal gpu chip failures in the last generation of nvidia gpu's (8-series)?

i've heard so much bad press about those chips but i'm not sure if nvidia has fixed the issue with their current 9-series chips.

Apple :: Will Ditch NVIDIA For Intel Graphics

May 27, 2009

I'm planning on making the switch to a Mac but I don't need a new notebook till Q3 09/Q1 2010. I know the next major hardware refresh is coming soon and I want a Macbook to last through uni but I don't know Apples sales strategies.

My main concern is the integrated graphics that the MB may come with when it is refreshed. What I wanted to ask is if anyone knows the likelihood that Apple will drop NVIDIA and go back to Intel.

Because if that was to be the case, I might as well buy one now (or once SL is released) because i'd rather have a Centrino 2 based MB w/ NVIDIAs iGPU then go back to Intel (harsh, i know... but it's the truth).
Even with all the benefits the Calpella chipset/Westmere CPU would bring i.e. USB 3.0, SATA-III, Bluetooth 3.0, native SSD support, removal of FSB, integrated memory controller, DDR3-1600, improved wireless tech (w/ finalized 802.11n spec), lower power consumption, 32nm Nehalem.

Man I wish Apple would stick with NVIDIA for their next platform. NVIDIA has greater compatibility than anyone else and I know for a fact that the integrated graphics that will come with Arrandale are just a higher clocked 4500MHD so it will still be a lot weaker then even todays Macbook offering (9400m) which is like taking two steps back.
Would be frickin AWESOME if we could get Calpella with a variant of Arrandale without its integrated graphics core. Instead, couple it with a 40/32nm shrink of the current 9400m based on the G300 architecture.............

Apple :: Defective NVIDIA 8600 GTMacBook Pro 2.2 GHz

Feb 22, 2010

Just got my refund from Apple after I spoke to them regarding the NVIDIA 8600 GT issue that has recently plagued my notebook. (It originally wouldn't boot, no chime - nothing.

So the Apple Store charged me $310.00 for the flat rate repair job. Got the notebook a few days later and found the phrase "Replaced - Graphics Processor Issue on MLB". Called them back, they opened up an investigation and issued my refund a week later.)

Anyhow, a few days after the repair, I noticed that my MacBook's fans started making a grinding sound. Granted, it was before the video card failure (and I had hoped they would fix it) but the noise seems to be more apparent after I got it back. Seems like the issue had manifested to both fans. Plus, my video card seems to be running hotter than usual.

I'm getting 74 C just by browsing the web. I did some research and I guess this is somewhat normal for the video card, but it doesn't seem real encouraging. I also notice a faint smell coming from the ventilation gap on the back of the computer. I don't want to say it's the smell of burning plastic, but it's somewhere around that range. Not sure how to describe it.

Dell :: How Hard Is It To Replace The Wifi Chip On The E6400?

Apr 9, 2009

I found a good deal on an E6400 which is perfect except that it comes with Dell Wireless 1397. I want the Intel 5100 for Linux compatibility, but I'd hate to pass up a good opportunity just because of the wireless chipset.

I have a few E6400s at work, and it looks like the whole underside needs to be unscrewed (and I won't test on them for obvious reasons)?

Dell XPS 15 L521X :: Graphics Chip Is No Longer Recognized

Sep 19, 2012

So I updated to Bios A09 hoping it would improve either my Wifi issues, my throttling issues, or my battery life issues.After the A09 update, my nVidia Graphics chip is no longer recognized, and therefore have lost my dual external monitor support.  That may improve battery life I guess since the nVidia chip is now worthless and I'm forced to the Intel 4000.  Not the change I was hoping for.

Is it possible to revert the A09 bios back to A06?  Is this isolated to me, or was it just not QA'd at all by Dell?I worked around the wifi issue with a USB dongle, and am living with the battery life issues by getting less work done on airplane flights.Losing my multi-monitor support is killing my productivity. Also losing my patience with this machine and Dell in general.

Apple :: Updating NVIDIA Drivers In Boot Camp

Apr 2, 2009

I have a base UMP and I went through the basic steps of upgrading video drivers - uninstall, reboot, install new...

However, when I did this process, the install portion would barf. It would say something like "can't find hardware" or "not the right driver"... something along those lines.

Should I just install the latest from NVIDIA without uninstalling first?

Apple :: NVidia 179.48 Beta Drivers Now Support 9400M

Feb 11, 2009

I know that the modded INFs from laptopvideo2go have supported this, but the latest beta drivers released today from nVidia actually support the 9400M out of the box.

These drivers support the screen brightness controls (I had probs with this using the modded drivers) AND more importantly I can now use an external monitor and resume from sleep mode. The Apple drivers would not resume after the video card turned the external monitor off.

Apple :: Aluminum Macbook 2.0 Ghz 9400 NVidia For Gaming

Aug 7, 2009

I just sold my old black macbook on eBay. Lo and behold, an opportunity presents itself in the form of the Aluminum Macbook in the NBR Marketplace.

Anyway, how does the 9400m compare to the 9300ms that is in the Asus N10J?

I already have a Clevo laptop for gaming, this would strictly be for ultaportability and perhaps some gaming while on the road for clients.

Apple :: Video Artifacts In Unibody After Nvidia Update 10.5.7

May 13, 2009

I updated to 10.5.7 and it runs quite well however I noticed a flaw of video flashing and I wanted to confirm this with others. In Stacks I use the Applications folder in list view. I have a long list of applications so I always have to scroll to go through all of them. When I use two finger scrolling to zip through them I see flashes of video artifacts while two finger scrolling. This only happens when you have enough apps in list view to require scrolling to see them all. For example, with no windows open I click the Applications folder and begin rapidly two finger scrolling through list view and I can see artifacts of the desktop flashing within the list view box. Anyone else notice this after the update? I have already reformatted and installed nothing but my basic apps and still see this.

Apple mentioned that they updated the Nvidia drivers for the unibody Macs. I have a Macbook Air.

Dell Latitude D630 :: Moved The 2MB Chip To The MB Under The Keyboard And Now It Won't Reboot?

Jan 22, 2015

I tried upgrading my Latitude's RAM using a 2MB chip first in the rear slot, and Win 7 didn't read any additional RAM (showing only 1GB).  So I moved the 2MB chip to the MB under the keyboard and now it won't reboot.  I tried to put the original RAM chips back in their respective slots (each 1MB RAM) but it still won't boot. 

I guess I can't update the BIOS if it won't boot.
