Dell :: 8400GS Or NVidia Video Driver

Jan 25, 2009

My Vostro 1510 laptop came with the latest 8400GS video card driver from Dell. Is it unwise to try the latest driver from nVidias site?

I've been reading that some drivers can run a little cooler. HWMonitor says my GPU normally runs at 60c, a little warm from what I'm reading.

Dell :: Xps Studio X16 And Nvidia Video

Sep 30, 2009

there are many out there that likes to dab in linux, unix, opensource, and usually those folks demand nvidia video, and will not even think twice about a rig unless the nvidia option is available..

ati video cards are very hard, if not impossible to configure with linux..i know, i have tried.....i just wonder who makes these decisions for dell, and if they even smart enough to realize this...

i went to dell laptop sales chat ,and asked them about the nvida choice -

1. don,t have info
2. might be a product shortage
3. design team made the ati decision
4. will pass along the info

the replys were what i expected....no idea

Nov 10, 2009

I have a dell xpsm1330 and the video card i have is the invidia 8400 video card. this is the problematic video card much talked about already.

dell had since replaced, under warranty, my video card and the attached motherboard twice already.

i was told by the technician that the new invidia video card has a model / reference no. 686 631 A2. The old defective vid card has model no. 686 630 A2.

Dell :: Can I Disable Nvidia Card And Use Onboard Video

Jan 6, 2010

My laptop is Vostro 1500 with 8600M GT

I'm experiencing some weird flashes, driver stops working and recovered, random distorting dots etc recently. I'm 99% sure its the video card's problem. Luckily the display card can be exchanged. But before going ahead to change it I wanna ensure its video's fault. So I wonder theres any way I can turn off the NVIDIA 8600M GT ,use the intel graphic instead, and see if I still get any of those problems.

I don't seem to find any option in BIOS letting me to do so.

Dell :: NVIDIA Quatro NVS 135M Video Card Crashes

Sep 30, 2009

I use a Latitude D630 with an NVIDIA Quatro NVS 135M video card. I generally run my computer with dual screen support using an additional monitor.

Last week, I returned to my computer to find the image looking all scrambled, the resolution low, looking like it was in safe mode. It said there was a problem with the display driver and needed to restart.

I restarted, everything seemed to boot up normally, but as I would perform operations in Windows, the screen started to mess up and the machine would lose display or freeze completely (I still can't tell which it did).

After continually having to manually turn off and boot my machine, at one point at startup it mentioned that the volume on the C drive was dirty and needed to do some clean up. It took a few minutes, but then booted normally. I'm not sure what happened there .....

Sony :: Repaired VAIO Nvidia Video

May 26, 2010

I have a VAIO SZ series laptop which got the typical video isue with Nvidia GPU (vertical lines). I was very disaponted from what I read and from the 750-1000 Euro repair cost that sony Greece (I live in Greece) offered me so I started looking for a motherboard on ebay. I was very lucky and surprised to find a company offering a repair service for my laptop located in Greece. I bought the service for 200Euro I packed the laptop and send them my pick up info.

Next day a courier picked up my laptop and 10 days later it was returned fully functional and they even solved the problem with the noisy fan! This happened one week ago and today they even refunded 50Euro of my payment because I am located in Greece and the offered price was calculated for shipping in EU! So it actually costed me only 150Euro in total!

Checing their listing I show that they are offering repair services for FZ series laptops for much less but they are asking to send them only half of the laptop. Anyway I prefer not to mention the company's name but if you check on ebay.co.uk for VAIO SZ video repair you should find them and maybe more proffesionals closer to you who could repair your laptop for a fruction of what sony is asking.

Dell Inspiron N5110 :: Can't Detect Nvidia Gt 525m Video Card Anymore

Nov 10, 2012

I've recently accidentally dropped my n5110 ci5 laptop. It was a hard crash that the screen cracked. Later i had the screen replaced and checked that all hardware is working properly. Everything was fine except my laptop can no longer detect my NVIDIA Gt525m Graphic Card. I really need it for my advanced modeling and rendering purposes. What i know is that display is working and it's definitely using Intel HD Graphics 3000. I tried re-installing video drivers but the setup won't continue saying that it can't detect any compatible hardware.

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 :: NVIDIA Driver 186.28

Oct 11, 2009

I am in search of the driver number in the title. It came factory preinstalled from dell and I had the installation files on disk, but accidentally deleted them, defragged, and now they're gone (save for if Power Data Recovery can recover them, Recuva already failed at that ).

Does anybody still have these babies? I ordered my laptop the first of October in Europe, so anyone that has ordered or received their laptop in around now should have these installed. They said they were revision A08, but it's nowhere to be found.

These are the only current drivers that would allow hybrid sli stuff to work, so I really need those. They came with a NVDJ.inf and WHQL certificate. I believe the driver date was around 26/06/2009, and I have scoured the dell ftp site for anything released around that date or later, but found nothing. Also laptopvideo2go doesn't have them. Currently running the NVIDIA notebook drivers, but they don't support the hybrid thing.

HP/Compaq :: DV4-1000EA Video Performance (256mb Nvidia 9200m GS)

Jan 11, 2009

Recently purchased DV4-1000ea as follows;

2.26Ghz P8400 Core2Duo
2GB RAM
250GB HDD
256MB Dedicated (1024MB Shared) NVidia 9200m GS.

I liked the idea of the laptop having a HDMI output to connect to my TV to watch movies etc downloaded on iTunes. I thought the graphics card was going to be ample given that my housemates Macbook with 32mb shared graphics works just fine.

However, I am really disappointed with the graphics performance playing High quality video, in particular, H264 Quicktime files.

For example, I have downloaded a few 720p trailers from the apple website and torrent sites and when playing, the videos are choppy in most scenes and speech is not in sync with video a lot of the time. This is true for display on the laptop screen, as well as display on TV via HDMI.

I have checked CPU usage whilst such clips are playing and it's running quite comfortably at 40-50%.

I have downloaded the latest NVidea drivers from the NVidia website (version 7928).

Also, even music video previews in itunes (and subsequent previews) are choppy and out of sync whilst playing. I have tried apples suggestions of turning off 3d accleleration for DirectX but it makes things worst.

Jun 30, 2009

i had to reinstall XP OS on my XPS M1530 machine. the previous nVidia driver(which was working perfectly b4 reinstalling) seems not working well as i have got couple of times BSOD problem.

Dell :: Graphic Card 128mb 8400gs Question.

May 9, 2009

I have a m1330 laptop with a 8400gs graphic card. I want to know if the card can share the memory, because I have 3 gb of ram.

If it can, I can use games that minimum requirements are 256 mb and take the other 128mb from the ram. If it can, will be best to later upgrade to 4 gb of ram?

Sony :: VGN-SZ71 WN/C With 8400GS

Sep 28, 2009

The WEI score of this Sony model, when using the dedicated nVidia 8400GS is one point lower than when using Intel X3100 in Stamina mode.

Strange to say the least, but it proves that with the latest GPU driver, Intel has improved the performance on this graphic chip.

HP/Compaq :: Video Performance :Pavilion Dv5t With NVIDIA GeForce 9200M GS

Jan 30, 2009

Dv5t, the problem of having non-optimal /under par performance of Nvidia Graphics accelerator 9200/9600 used with Windows Vista.

I have done some troubleshooting myself, but yet to find a working solution.

My configuration is :

Pavilion Dv5t CTO Notebook.
15.4" diagonal WSXGA+ LCD.
Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo Processor P7350 (2.0GHz)
Current Running Resolution 1680 x 1050.
3GB system RAM.
NVIDIA GeForce 9200M GS with 256 MB of RAM.
Windows Vista Ultimate 32-bit.

The degraded performance I am talking about is not specifically for games and 3D applications. Nor is playing games and running 3D rendering my primary purpose. The various benchmarks and tests mentioned at this site maybe more directed towards running specific games and other applications............

Dell :: Vista Won't Use Unsigned Nvidia Driver

May 5, 2009

I tried installing the latest 185.81 driver from nvidia but vista will not let it function.

I get a message while the driver is installing, something along the lines of "vista can only use signed drivers, blah blah, some devices may not work properly." Is there a work around for this? Or do I have to use an older driver?

Btw, I am using vista 64bit with SP1. Trying to get the drivers to run dual 9800gt's

Dell :: Nvidia Driver Stopped Working

May 27, 2010

Got my new XPS M1730 in December 2008 and all was well for the first few months till the graphic issues started and the Nvidia driver stopped working and has recovered problem.

So three new cards and after a long battle they eventually agreed to swap me out with an Alieware M17X R2.

I have two questions .....

what happens if i still have the old XPS in a box upstairs waiting to be collected and they have not collected it after 3 months and will they even want it back now...they did say they wanted it back and i would be contacted when this collection had been arranged ...

however three months have passed and im not going to phone them and ask them to come get it ....and also what can i do to get the machine back to working properly ... ie how can i find out if it definitly is the graphic card and what are my

options .... are the 9800 cards plauged with the same problems .
As for the Alienware im not convinced i like it as much as i did the XPS ... fan noise during gaming is almost embarrasing ...

"The Nvidia setup program could not locate any drivers that are compatable with your current hardware. Setup will now terminate."

I have look around the web alot for solutions and being cautious (not to damage the notebook) I rarely try anything out.

When first bought end of dec'07, it was running well the first few months till the fan made rattling noise as if the whole notebook didn't had a screw in every hole and was going to fall apart.

I send it to SONY service centre couple of times to get it fix and finally the fan issue was gone till I had a BSOD somewhere in mid'08 and all hell break lose from here on
