Dell :: 45nm Penryn In A M1730

Jan 13, 2008

I was wondering that since the socket for the processor in the M1730 is a socket P and thats the same socket the new Penryns will use, will it be possible to just drop one in like we were able to do so on the E1705 when Merom came out? The run at a much lower voltage and from this review [url] it would increase battery life and is more powerful to boot so it just sounds like a good idea.

Crap, looks like I messed up the topic for this thread.

Dell :: Penryn Now Available On M1730

Feb 15, 2008

Looks like the m1730 now carries 45nm Penryn processors: The base is now 2.4GHz T8300 and T9300 option is for ~$125 more. I wonder if the performance differences justify that extra $125.

Dell :: M1530: LED, Penryn, 8800

Feb 10, 2008

In the US, the M1330 already has the LED backlit and the penryn for some time now. Yet the 1530 is just sitting there...

Other manufacturers have began offering newer GPUs than the 8600, but still nothing from dell on their 15.4".

They teased us with the addition of the 1530 under the "XPS Gaming Laptop" header, but its exactly the same as the regular one.

Dell :: M1330 With Penryn Upgrade

Jan 31, 2008

I know some folks have put a T9300 in their m1330, but the screenshots I've seen show the bios incorrectly detecting the CPU speed (A06 I believe). I want to know if the new A07 bios has corrected this issue, but I never saw any followup. Can anyone who has done this upgrade confirm/deny if A07 fixed the detection issue?

Dell :: Penryn Minimum Core Temperature

Jul 13, 2009

It seems like the temperature readings from both cores of my P8400 on my Dell Latitude E6500 running Windows 7 RC have some sort of minimum built into them. The reported temperatures will never drop below 32 for Core 0, and 39 for Core 1. Even after I resume from suspend, when the CPU should be at room temperature, as soon as I boot up it's 39/32. Similarly, while temperatures above that on SpeedFan show normal fluctuations, like you expect from a CPU temperature reading, once it hits the floor, it just becomes a flat straight line.

I'm not sure if this is the sensors, the software, or what.

Apple :: Installing Penryn MBP Top Case On Santa Rosa MBP

Jan 28, 2010

i got my santa rosa MBP not too long ago (i bought it second hand). i am extremely happy with the machine as it is a 2.4ghz c2d with 160g hdd at 5400rpm and 8600gt 256mg gpu. i know this has been discussed many times, so i have been reading about the multi touch trackpad and was a bit bummed that i didnt get the newer 2008 penryn model instead. 2 days ago i was thiking about replacing the SR MBP top case with a penryn MBP top case and have the multi touch, 4 finger gesture ability on my SR MBP. therefore i started googling to see of people have actually done conversions and worked..fortunately, i found a member on this forum and confirmed that it actually works...but unfortunately there was not guide for this operation. I would really want to hear from those that has performed such replacement operation and perhaps give me some tips and what i may need to watch out for. in addition to that, does anybody know of a guide for this replacement? would the penryn top case keyboard and trackpad connections fit the SR MBP? any modifications needed?

Dell :: XP Pro X64 For M1730

Apr 2, 2009

I'm installing x64 XP Pro on my system (check my sig) after using x86 XP pro for many odd years. I was hoping I could get some help cultivating all the x64 bit compatible drivers for my system because this is a large undertaking, and all my drivers I have backed up to flash drive are for my current 32-bit system, so this is overwhelming to me......
I was hoping I could just get some help from the community retrieving OEM drivers (not Dell drivers) for my system. I want everything up-to-date, including RAID matrix manager and chipset drivers....

Dell :: My New XPS Toy... M1730

Jul 27, 2008

I used to have an Inspiron 9400 which I modded into an M1710, which is in this photo forum. I eventually managed to get some funding and bought the M1730 about 4 months ago and love it. Heres a basic photo of my setup:

The Specs:
Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo Processor T9300 - 2.5GHz, 6MB Cache, 800 MHz FSB

Windows Vista(R) Ultimate 32 bit
Dell(TM) Wireless 355 Bluetooth Module
Integrated Sound Blaster Audigy ADVANCED HD Audio Software
17.0" UltraSharp(TM) Widescreen WUXGA (1920x1200) TFT Display with TrueLife(TM)
Smoke Gray LCD display with Integrated 2.0 mega pixel web cam
4GB (2x2GB) 667MHz DDR2 SDRAM
200GB SATA 7200RPM Performance Hard Drive
2nd 200GB SATA 7200RPM Performance Hard Drive Blu-ray Combo Drive
Dual 512MB NVIDIA(R) GeForce(R) 8800M GTX with NVIDIA(R) SLI(TM) Technology

Intel(R) 4965AGN Wireless-N Mini-Card
AGEIA PhysX Mobile Technology(TM)

I was worried this would be a slow processor but it's great does all my photo work and web design work with ease, and it's great for games ! Fantastic machine, love the light up keyboard.

In the photo it's sitting on an akasa 17" notebook cooler to help keep the temps happy.

I'll try and take some more photos of it at some point.

Dell :: BSOD M1730

Feb 20, 2010

My 1730 is not cooperating this morning. Been trying to figure out why Im having a BSOD (Blue Screen of Death) everytime I try to open anything. It even crashed during a system restore and also during a power off at the Windows is Shutting Down screen.

Things had been working great up until last night. I was reading something on a webpage when I got a pop up window on the page I was on, and when I clicked the window closed, I crashed to blue screen of death.

Haven't been able to do much since then. Not sure if its hardware or software related, but I do notice that my McAfee isn't running now and when I try to update it says 'Components Are Missing' and to reinstall.

Can't get far enough in a reinstall before I crash again, so thats getting me no where.

I was able to do a system restore to a day earlier, but the problem is still there.

I also have no way to network in safe mode due to only having wireless internet access.

If anyone has any suggestions on where to get help to find out what might be causing the problem. Please let me know. I can follow instruction if anyone can walk me through what I need to look for.

Dell :: Replacing GPU In M1730

Jan 13, 2010

I am down to 1 GPU on my M1730, in the interest of replacing it , from the forum sticky these seem to be the options

XPS M1730
Nvidia 8700M (both single and SLI****)
Nviida 8800M GTX SLI
Nvidia 9800M GT SLI
Nvidia 9800M GTX SLI

(I assumme this list is complete still . i.e. no 260's or 280's available)

Other than Dell or EBay are there any other sites , suppliers that people know of who might supply one of the above

DELL want 340 + Vat for a sli 8700m and there is every so often a 8800M for sale on ebay but they typically want approx 500 pounds for it (anyone had experience of buying one?)

I am dubious about the 8800 as evidence suggests it runs hot so would prefer a cheap 8700m or a warrentied 9800M

Dell :: M1730 Got Shipped

May 27, 2009

So my M1730 got shipped yesterday... they gave me 2 tracking numbers-- both were used in august 08.. So I waited it out, and later on, the two tracking numbers both updated... Both of them say "Electronic info received".

I call Fedex this morning, they tell me Dell hasn't shipped anything yet. I call Dell, the lady tells me it was shipped and not to worry. I don't know who to believe..

So basically I can't track my package and know when its coming....
