Dell :: 20 FPS On Bioshock With 6800 Ultra

Aug 27, 2007

I'm getting with my rig with everything turned on LOW at native res (1440 x 900). I am using the recommended 163.44 drivers. This is garbage, isn't there anything I can do to make it better?

Dell :: 6800 Ultra XPS Gen2

Jul 17, 2007

I currently own a XPS Gen2 I purchased in Oct 2005. When I was deployed back to Iraq this past year it started acting up and now when I boot it the screen is just black. I have been told by a few people that it is the Vid card that has died on me. If so. Is there any modding to put a 7800gtx in it? I have seen on the forums where I can purchase one for around $260US.

Dell :: 6800 Ultra To 7800 GTX Upgrad

Feb 19, 2009

I have an XPS Gen 2 that I bought back in 2005.

What, if anything, is needed to be done in order to upgrade my system from having a 6800 Ultra card to a 7800 GTX card? Do I need to purchase any additional parts?

Dell :: 6800 Ultra Cooling Assembly

Oct 8, 2008

I'm in the processes of cleaning out my XPS Gen2 for the first time since 2005 (yes yes I know...) because it started shutting down during some games. The question I have is related to the heat pads on the video card memory, FETs, and on the chipset heatsink. I know these things suck. I want to use AS5 in place of them but there is a gap between the heatsinks and the memory/chipset/fets when you remove them. How have you guys gotten around this? Is there a better version of a heat pad and where would I get them?

Dell :: Nvidia GeForce Go 6800 Ultra ...

Jun 8, 2009

A couple weeks ago I put my laptop (a Dell XPS M170) beside my bed cause I had to use the MC Alarm to get up cause I had to be up at like 4 AM and I don't do well with the beep beep alarms.

Anyway, I plugged it in and sat it on the floor on top of (for lack of anything better) two Arizona tallboy cans laid longways (the feet sat on these) with a chess set box underneath (in case

it happened to slip off one of the cans). I also left the screen partway up. Well of course I left it on overnight for the alarm, but when I got up to go to the bathroom ...

Dell :: Is The 6800 Ultra Even Worth The Swap Anymore

Dec 14, 2007

I have been looking into upgrading my 9300 from the 6800 to the 6800 Ultra for the past couple of years now. The prices are finally reasonable enough to do the swap. My question is would the swap even be worth it these days? Is it still a good enough card to make it worth my while to come up from the standard 6800 even with overclocking it?

Dell :: BioShock On Your

Aug 21, 2007

How did it run on your system? Look at my sig, I struggled for 30FPS on 1027x768

Using Nvidia Driver 84.63

This was the DEMO, not the real game. I hope the game is better optimized than the demo, but for some reason I feel it'll be about the same.

Vote now on the demo, leave all comments,concerns, rants,anxious glee, etc etc.....want to hear it

Edit/Update- Got Bioshock running at a smooth 60+FPS. Defrag ur HD and defrag files in Steam, (if u used it 2 get demo).

update-9/3/07- now running all high settings, everything turned on, 1024x768. 20-40FPS- little to no choppiness

Dell :: Trying To Play Bioshock On My Newly Acquired XPS M1730

Feb 4, 2009

I'm trying to play Bioshock on my newly acquired XPS M1730, but it just doesn't seem to want to play right. Even when I turn the graphics options way down it is still running very badly, and I would imagine on this machine it should run pretty good, right?

Here are my current system specs:


Core 2 Duo Extreme X9000
Vista Ultimate
640GB HD (320 x2)
Dual GeForce 8700MGT's (Running in SLI)

NVidia Driver: 179.28

Dell :: Orange Box On 6800 Go

Dec 31, 2007

regarding the Orange Box performance (mainly Portal) and the 6800 Go. I have a lower fps than I expected to have after playing HL2. But I realized that if I put AA up to 4x in the game, I get better performance than with just 2x (about 6-8 fps improvement). Thats at running at 1280x800 resolution.

I"m using just the Dell 84.30 drivers right now because I can't seem to find a good set of drivers. The others I used were the MobileForce 169.04's, but I wasn't getting a very good FPS. I think my laptop should handle Portal at 1280x800 at around a consistent 30+ fps (with V-sync and triple buffering, no HDR, Medium on every setting with medium, high on the other options). I could be wrong though, I seemed to have run HL2 pretty good at higher settings.

So yeah I'm just curious if anybody else that has a 6800 Go has any recommendations for drivers and why I'm getting better performance with more AA enabled right now. My specs (a bit older laptop):

Pentium M 1.6 Ghz
2 GB of RAM
NVIDIA Geforce Go 6800
Windows XP SP2

Dell :: 6800 Go Vs 8600m GT

Jul 15, 2007

It's been a long time since i've posted on this forum, but i was wondering wether or not a 6800 go is better than the 8600m gt? The reason for this is that my 9300 seems to be on its last legs (after three keyboard replacements, two motherboard replacements, a 3d card replacement, and various other little problems) and i was wondering if they replace my 9300 with a 1720, would i be satisfied? (im already worried about it not having a DVI port as i regularly connect my 9300 to my 20' monitor).

Dell :: Dead 6800 In My 9300

Apr 18, 2008

turn on the power and for the first couple boots, I could see the POST info, but it was really distorted. Now the backlight comes on and I get nothing. I can hear the machine booting, and everything else seems fine, but no display.

I pulled the display off another laptop and it looks exactly the same, so I'm assuming it's the 6800, but I don't have any way to test for sure.

Now... if it IS the vid card, I'm not sure I want to shell-out $200 - $350 for a new vid card. The rest of the lappy works fine (in fact, I JUST upgraded the CPU). Think I could get any money for it?

Also, would would be a good replacement for around $700? I'd like the something with the WUXGA screen like I have now and at least something comparable to the 6800 I have now as well.

Dell :: Flashing Geforce GO 6800

Jul 23, 2007

I've got a Dell Inspiron 9300. Recently, I flashed my vBios and had to do a blind flash. I've got a flash drive with all of the things needed on it, but I'm not so sure about the ROM. It was the only one I could find on the net, and it hasn't worked so far. I left the flash drive in for almost two hours, and it finally did the two beeps. It was on full auto mode and it didn't restart; it just sat there.

I guess I'm begging someone to send me a default bios for a Dell i9300's go 6800 gpu (NV41, according to dell, not sure if it matters).

Also, for clarification, the "backlight" refers to the monitor emitting a glow while still being blank, yes? Because as it is, the monitor doesn't even come on, much less emit any light.

Dell :: Doesn't Happen In "the Orange Box" Or Bioshock

Oct 14, 2008

This happens when in SLI only, there is ghosting/tearing/i have no idea of some sort. It happens in WoW, Crysis, Crysis WH, and 3dMarkVantage. Doesn't happen in "the Orange Box" or Bioshock. I've reloaded every driver I can find, dell factory image with all microsoft updates, dell factory image no updates, and verified it happens on both the Sharp panel in the system and my Samsung Syncmaster 24". Please help. I'm within my 21 day mark, and I'll probably return it if I can't get it fixed soon. Should probably tell ya, x9000 (stock clock) 4GB, 320HDD, SLI 8800GTX's, Vista 32bit.

Dell :: 93006800 Ultra Throttling

Dec 22, 2007

My Inspiron 9300 has the following specs:

Pentium M 1.6Ghz pin modded to 2.13Ghz (previous CPu was 1.73Ghz) , 2Gb RAM (667Mhz sticks), 6800 Ultra (Xps Gen 2 Bios flash-A05, previous card was an X300 64MB.)

I seem to be getting odd 3DMark05 socres, around the range of 4500, I tried overclocking the 6800 Ultra to 500/1166 and that produced a result of around 5000. The odd thing is that 3DMark05 appears to be running "choppy" every other frame it seems to skip producing a choppy flow of the tests, the frame rate also fluctuate by about 5 FPS in somewhat low movement/action scenes.

I have tried numerous drivers all resulting in the same thing (every driver has been cleanly installed). I am also quite certain that it's not a temperature issue as the max temp the card reaches (according to I8kfanGUI) is around 80-85 C. Just to be certain I ran 3dmark while the laptop was in an ambient temp of -5C (holding laptop outside the window ;]) and still the same...although max temperatures were a lot lower.

So is it possible that the card is for some reason throttling back and forth from the high performance 3d profile (450/1064/1.38v) to the low profile one (250/658/1.1v)?

I got the card from eBay over a year ago now and thus have no warranty on it.

Has anyone else had a similar problem and found a solution?

I am currently considering flashing the card with a custom BIOS, using NiBiTor 3.6 get BIOS from card, change ONLY throttling values to 450/1064 and also voltage to 1.38v, do not touch anything else, save the BIOS burn to CD (alongside a copy of original BIOS read from card)-[no floppy] and flash.

However I am a bit worried about killing the card, has anyone attempted something like this? Also the ROM files generated by NiBiTor are exactly 64,000 bytes is this alright?

Dell :: SSD's: 64GB Ultra-Performance Vs. 128 GB Mobility

Mar 3, 2009

Does anybody know the performance difference between Dell's 64 GB "Ultra-Performance" SSD and their 128 GB "Mobility" SSD?

In Canada, the 128 GB Mobility SSD is $589 extra, while the 64 GB Ultra-Performance SSD is $648 extra.

I would really like to know how much (if any) performance I would be sacrificing by going for the bigger (and cheaper) Mobility SSD.

Dell :: E4200 Ultra Performance Ssd Benches

Apr 22, 2009

had a dell e4200 with the ultra performance solid state drive upgrade in my hands for a day or two last weekend. i'd looked everywhere for benches on the upgraded drive before purchasing, but i couldn't find them anywhere. so when i got the computer i decided to take some benchmarks to help out any other shoppers.

couldn't take any write benchmarks because the drive was an o.s. drive. i believe this drive is an slc drive with samsung's second generation ssd controller.

i don't have access to the laptop anymore, so i might not be able to answer any questions you may have about the drive or the laptop itself. but i'll try my best.

Dell :: Cleaning Ultra-Sharp WUXGA Screen

Apr 6, 2008

What do you use to clean your screens with? I have grubby little fingerprints ALL over mine, and it is especially annoying on black screens in movies/games and such.

I almost bought a pack of normal "LCD Cleaning Wipes" but then I noticed it had Alcohol in it and shyed away from it. Why? I'm assuming that Alcohol would hurt the sensitive gloss finish on the screen, but my assumption could be wrong (and hopefully it is, would be much simpler to use those wipes). I also tried just using a dry wash cloth and just gently rubbing the prints off, but it only smeared them, and I'm afraid I'll damage the screen if I push any harder than I already am. Using a wet wash cloth seemed to have no effect either.

So how about it? What method do YOU use, and find best, to clean your screens?

Dell XPS 15 Ultra :: Backlit Keyboard Stopped Working

Apr 12, 2013

Keyboard backlit stopped working (it used to work earlier). In BIOS the keyboard is now defined as a nonbacklight (BIOS was updated by L521XA13W.exe from, not sure how it was defined while working...

I've looked for a solution at - pressing Fn+F6 doesn't switch it on,- launching BacklitKB.exe from QuickSet says the backlight is on but it's not (I can adjust brightness, timing, turn it off/on but it still won't work),- reinstalling the QuickSet doesn't work,- Windows Mobility Center lists the backlit keyboard, but doesn't bring it on;- putting it to sleep and waking it up also doesn't work as well as restarting it.
