Dell :: 700m Thermal Reset?

Aug 15, 2009

The LCD on my 700m quit working after I dropped it. But OK on external monitor. Got new screen on eBay. Part # slightly different but that's moot now.

After hooking up the two cables to new screen and putting battery back in, I pressed START button. The light would come on for a few seconds and then blink off, accompanied by a faint click. The data cable to screen got very hot in just a few attempts to start up.

Now nothing works (no more blinks and clicks) with either LCD, on either battery or mains. At this point I would be happy just with external monitor. Had I tripped an thermal overload device, and is there a reset button?

Dell Inspiron N5010 :: Thermal Sensor Not Working Always - Any Method To Reset?

Nov 1, 2014

I have a Dell n5010 laptop.... sometimes I have seen that laptop is getting shutdown automatically after 5-6 minutes of powered on. Lots of internet search I came to know about HWiNFO software which shows cpu temperature and fan speed....  I have seen sometimes cpu gets heated up but the fan is not started yet causing overheat issue.. so as shutting down the system... my bios is up to date as per dell website latest bios driver version A15... I am sensing that that the thermal sensor may be not working properly always... Please note down not always it is happening sometimes it is happening...???

Dell :: Has Anyone Replaced The Thermal Paste / Thermal Pad On A E6400/M2400?

Apr 2, 2009

I have come to grips with the fact that my E6400 (see specs below) has idle temps of around 42 for both CPUs and around 62 for the GPU (while docked).

While these are not dangerous, and while the slow fan speed is very quiet and therefore doesn't bother me, I refuse to accept defeat so easily.

So, I am thinking of replacing the thermal paste and possibly the thermal pad on my E6400. There is at least one person here at the Latitude/Precision sub-forum who did that, with amazing results

Acer :: 6920g Thermal Pad Or Thermal Paste For The Northbridge

Jul 16, 2009

i have a question for everyone who has removed the heatspreader from an acer 6920g. Did the northbridge made contact with the heatspreader by a thermal pad or by a thermal paste ? mine had something that looked like a thermal pad but when i tried to remove it , it tore into small pieces ( i know a thermal pad is not like that ). i used a thermal paste when i put everything back together. Should i open it up again and use a thermal pad for the northbridge ?. In everst in the sensor menu it shows 42 degrees celsius for the motherboard sensor ( i assume that is the northbridge).

Dell :: 700m Display ProblemBacklight

Jan 26, 2010

It proceeds to boot as normal into Windows and I have connected to an external display to confirm everything else is fin.

When I switch back and forth from monitor/LCD I can see the laptop screen flickering as it did when it was working normally, and I think I can see the laptop screen very very faintly when I have it on dual display clone, which leads me to think it's a backlight problem...But I just never have encountered this type of issue in 5 years of my usage so I need your input ..

Dell :: Inspiron 700m RAM Recognition?

Feb 21, 2009

ok so my sister bought her dell inspiron 700m back in 2004. i went online to the dell site on her computer to check its default configurations and found that it came with 256 ram, however,

when i check, it seems that the system only recognizes up to 238 ram and 238 is the number that keeps showing up. this is extremely troublesome cause im trying to install ubuntu but many problems keep occurring cause i need 256 ram for it.

is there any way i can get the 700mto recognize the full 256 ram?

also im thinking of upgraded the ram, would this ram be ok? it seems compatible but i want to be sure before i buy it :

Dell :: 700m Hard-drive Mount

May 9, 2009

I have a Dell 700m (and have for four years now). I recently decided to upgrade it instead of buying a new tiny laptop. What I would like to do is put two 320gb hard drives in it. Unfortunately, there is, of course, only one hard drive slot. However, there is the DVD/CD-R drive mount. What I'm hoping exists is an "internal hard-drive enclosure"--something into which I can put a 2.5'' hard drive (I don't care whether SATA or IDE) which mounts in the same way as the DVD/CD-R drive. I realize that this is a long shot, but it would be wonderful if it existed.

Anyone know if it's possible to put a solid state drive in my dell 700m. I guess I will need a convertor since I know the interfaces are different. When I first bought the laptop, I changed out the 5200 rpm HD to a hitachi 7200 rpm ATA6 HD.

Dell :: Thermal Compound On Old 9300?

Oct 8, 2009

I'm working on my friend's old 9300(It still has the factory Dell image installed)

This thing has been on probably 75% of it's life. I want to pull is apart, remove the dell thermal compound, and replace it with ICD7 thermal compound,

but I am afraid that after so long the dell stuff will have hardened to the point of breaking things as I try to remove the heatsinks.

Dell :: M1530 Gpu Thermal Paste?

Apr 22, 2009

I just had the motherboard/video card on my m1530 replaced by the dell guy because of the old defective graphics card issue. I watched him do the whole thing, and when he re-attached cooling mechanism to the motherboard, he used new thermal paste for the cpu, but not the video card.

I asked him about this, and he said that the surface of the gpu is different and doesn't need it. I don't really believe this, since it looks just like the desktop gpus that I always use thermal paste on. I'm getting pretty high temps now (65-70C idle).

Dell :: Faulty Thermal Sensor

Dec 30, 2008

what i wanted wass to fix/bypass the sensor without having to replace the damn board. i couldn't even find a single post staing where exactly the sensor is on the board.
my problem specifically was that beer got spilled on the keyboard. after a while the machine shorted and shut off. I have a Dell Inspiron 9300, with a 1.73 ghz Sonoma CPU. i left the laptop off for two days so some of the liquid would dry out. after some problems and a dozen reboots i got into the bios, then finally through to windows. everything was fine except that the CPU was working at a very low frequency. also the fans were continually at highest speed. the CPU was being reported between 101 mhz to 503 mhz, depending on the software. it was being recognized correctly but showing to operate at 202 mhz in the system properties panel. what was really striking is that the notebook harware software i had installed was reporting the CPU temperature as 85 C. I tried various software to manipulate the CPU frequency to no avail. The temp was a constant 85 C, although i could tell that it was not even close to this temperature since i my laptop was partly disassembled and i could feel the surface of the heatsink with my hand; it was cool.

I finally surmised that the problem was with the thermal sensor on the motherboard. it had probably shorted or got soaked and was reporting the highest temperature it could as a safety measure, thereby limiting the CPU to a very low frequency and not allowing it to throttle above 503 mhz.

My last option, save for replacing the motherboard, was to find the sensor chip, clean it, dry it and hope that it would work again.

But this is not what solved the problem. somewhere on the net i came accross a code, that when entered on an Inspiron 9100 (an older laptop, with a different chipset) would bring up the Thermal Management screen or something like that, which is certainly not accessible via the BIOS. I was playing around with the settings on a program called Hardware sensors monitor, again to no avail, when i finally decided to enter this code:

FN key + zxcvasdqwer. almost the second i pressed z, or maybe after x, the high speed fans shut off! after a short while they kicked back into operation but at a low speed, just like they were supposed to. the program hmonitor began reporting a more realistic CPU temp. i tried to play a high-def movie file and finally it played normal, without any lag or stuttering! as i played it, the fans kicked into higher mode, and the temp which had been steadily rising, began to drop. the program, and most other programs were still reporting the cpu at 202 mhz, windows system properties as well. but since it was playing a 720p video file normally, it had to be much higher than that. i did a reboot and voila!

all monitoring software are now reporting the CPU at 1.73 ghz. the system temperatures are perfectly normal, and at idle the CPU goes as low as 20 degrees C. The software Speedfan, however, is still giving an error regarding the sensor chip on the motherboard.

I seemed to have fixed the severe thermal sensor problem by a few keystrokes, without having to replace the motherboard or even the sensorchip. in fact, i didn't even have to find the sensor node and clean it.

I came accross more than a dozen people who had a very similar problem to mine, with the temperature being reported at 85-86 C, for no reason. At least those who have a Dell notebok might be able to solve this problem.

Dell :: How To Apply Thermal Paste

Apr 5, 2008

Alright, my CPU is idling at 75c and my GPU is at 80c, I've opened up my M170 and It didnt seem dusty at all, so I went out and bought a small tube of AC5 which people say will help.

Now the problem Is I have no idea where to apply it, or how much is needed. I dont really know anything about hardware components, so If anyone has any pics which could show me where and how much to apply that would great.

The M170 is currently in peices at my desk and Im typing this on a MacBook, and I really dont want to spend anymore time on the OSX than I have to.

Dell :: Recommended Thermal Compound For SXPS 16?

May 9, 2009

I have been reading a bunch of threads on decreasing temps and I am now thinking about changing the thermal compound that the machine shipped with.

I had originally seen a lot of people recommending Arctic Silver but I was not sure which one so I started to llok for more info and am now thoroughly confused. From what I have read some are designed for a more permanent mounting which I do not want since I may want to change the CPU in the future.

Also it seems some work better than others in certain applications which I don't understand. To me all it is doing is transferring heat so what it is transferring heat from shouldn't matter. But since it does seem to have some effect what has worked well for other SXPS 16 users.

Dell :: Changing Thermal Paste - M1530

Apr 22, 2009

Well i finally decided that i should give this a try after seeing my temps creep up by about 1 degreeC per week. I just ordered some Arctic Silver 5. Ive looked at all the thermal paste topics here and still have a few questions. Firstly, what exactly is the thermal pad and do i have to worry about it? I saw that some people had to remove the pad but when i read through tutorial i didnt see anything about taking off or replacing a thermal pad.
Secondly, when applying the thermal paste, do i want to cover the whole "black square" of the cpu/gpu with a thin layer?

And lastly, i heard that this may void your warranty. I was wondering, if i did break my lappy somehow, couldnt i just clean it off so that when the tech guy comes i just claim that i never even opened it up?

On the forums, i constantly see people complaining about the heat their laptop produces. Some people (like me) who use their laptop on their lap a lot, prefer to have the fan on constantly, to keep the laptop cool to the touch.

Others, they hate the noise the fan produces so they prefer the laptop to be not so cool, but they want it silent .....
