Dell :: AS5 On 2500m GPU --> Higher Temps?!

Apr 6, 2009

In short: My e1705 with a quadro 2500m is idling at temperatures at least 10 degrees celsius higher than it was before: 70 degrees with slow fans compared to ~60 with slow fans (I had fans kick in at 65 to bring it back to 60). There have been no hardware/software changes to the system.

So I read the guides about applying AS5 to your GPU and I thought I'd try to get better temps.

I cleaned off all the old compound from both the GPU and the heat spreader, and placed about a pea-sized piece on the GPU (see attachment). It wasn't the most perfect blob of AS5, but volume-wise I think it was pretty close, and ideally it would be smoothed out when I tightened the screws on the heat spreader.

I stuck to a "less is more approach" having heard that all I needed to do was fill the minor imperfections of the contact surfaces.

Dell :: Temps Get Higher Everyday It Seems

Mar 4, 2009

They were in the high 80's low 90 yesterday, now there higher. I'm thinking of calling dell up, but the motherboard was just replaced (card reader problem). Should I ask for an upgrade to the 1640? or what I've had many problems with my M1530...

Dell :: FX 2500M Not Usable On M6300

Oct 2, 2008

I have installed a FX 2500M (rev A02) on a M6300 system board A10 Bios, the card is working but its clock is fixed to 100MHz (100MHz core + 100MHz mem).

FX 2500m doesn't switch to 3D Low mode (200/300) or 3D Performance mode (500/600).
It always remains on 2D Mode (100/100)

Off Course the same card works correctly on M90 System Board.

I have tried many drivers, DELL version and generic version by laptopvideo2go, but same results (always fixed to 100MHz).

I have tried Rivatuner to force clock switch. Same results No Switch

I have even installed a new OS (Vista 64) and with it, I have a strange situation.

With Vista64 (no SP1) original driver supplied by MS (and based, I suppose, on forceware 96.xx) the card seems to works at high clock.

No information tools can be used (with MS Driver) so I can't see which clock are active but 3D performance (games and benchmark) are near the performance achieved with M90.

But once I update the driver by installing a recent version supplied by Nvidia (Dell version or generic is the same), the card blocks to 100MHz even under Vista64.

Unfortunately with MS Driver there are many graphics error and it isn't so usable with 3D application (i.e. games) and furthermore I want to use the card with XP32 (Vista64 has been installed only for tests).

Dell :: Underperforming Quadro 2500m

Nov 18, 2007

earlier this year I moved to vista , having good performance under games and a 3dmark05 score of 6500-7500.. , over the course of the year I had many reinstalls cause I wanted to check both X86 and X64 versions of Vista , and decided to stay with x64.

now I don't exactly know when exactly it happend - but a few months back I noticed my 3dmark05 score went down to 3300-3700 , well I thought .. maybe just a bad driver , so over the last 2 months i've tried many driver versions (155.xx , 156,xx , 169.xx from Laptopvideo2go and NBF) and I had the same results with all , I did fresh driver installs so thats not due to bad install or anything like it.

since I'm Currently playing WoW only :P I don't have any other benchmarks to run , Aquamark doesn't work under x64 and I don't know about any good benchmark tools.

something else I noticed which im sure is relevant - I remember that before having those problems my Temps went to the roof while gaming (93-94c) and 73c when idle , now with the new sets of drivers I have about 83c when gaming and 67c idle , now don't get me wrong .. im happy with those temps , but that also means my card doesn't stress itself to the max.

my 1st guess was Powermizer feature , Tried disabling it in the nv_disp.inf without any luck.. I'm not too sure if I managed to disable it.. GPU-Z always "sees" my clocks (500/600) at max.

I also thought about installing an old driver version but honestly I don't remember which drivers were ok to use under vista x64.

so I would really appriciate Ideas , that is before I do format C: ( I really want to avoid it this time).

Dell 1705 , 2GB Ram , T7200 , Quadro 2500m.

Dell :: XPS Quadro Project 99% Complete (+ Overclocked 2500M Results)

Aug 18, 2007

I finally got what is the old school Generation 2 look which IMO looks better. click here if you're interested to see how it looks like. Custom parts include the slot load DVD, keyboard, Atheros card and seagate hard drive. Future plans include quadro card sticker (being mailed) and maybe an internal camera mod.

After assembling everything, I continued to do more benchmarking using 3dmark05 and overclocking under vista. I've heard stories about vista hurting performance, but my god does it murder a good amount of framerates and performance. Non-overclocked, I got a best of 8582 on XP, and 7749 under vista.

After reflashing the vid bios and playing with rivatuner and atitools, I started at 575 core and 650 mem, ran 3dmark05, scored 9320. At first, I was pretty amazed at the score considered what vista did to it when it wasn't overclocked. I thought it would go somewhere where it was under XP (non overclocked). Anywho, I decided to up it a bit to 600 core and 700 mem. This time, 3dmark05 gave me a 9110. I tried it again, this time turning off any programs running in the background, and got a similar score. I lowered both clocks back to what it was when i scored the 9320 and ran it again. This time, it gave me an 8840.

Pretty interesting how these scores came about, but has anyone been in a similar situation? I'm thinking about going back to XP or just make a double partition for it, once i figure out how to w/o wiping half my HD.

Dell :: Replace Bad Connector On Quadro 2500m With Connector From Dead 7800go?

Nov 30, 2007

Is this feasible?

Some arsehole on ebay sold me a quadro with a busted connector and refused to refund. I had no idea about the 60 day policy so i was overly patient in waiting for my refund until it was too late.

Anyway, the quadro was intended to replace a 7800go that died some time ago. Is it possible to solder the connector from the dead card onto the quadro? i don't have the skills but i live in thailand and [reasonably skilled] labor is cheap.

HP/Compaq :: Who's Higher Than A CASE MANAGER

Feb 3, 2009

My case manager messed up the order on my SECOND 'replacement' notebook. She promised me upgrades across the board and messed up the order again, and forgot the screen res., fingerprint reader, extra battery, etc. So, now HP calls me and tells me that she was promoted and gave me a new case manager, Elric, who tells me there is nothing he can do and I can take it or leave it. Apparently he is one of 3 "executive" case managers and he says he is the top of the food chain.

Is there anyone else I can call to rectify this situation? Does anyone have a corporate # or something?

This has been a 6 week ordeal for me. Originally, I ordered a POS spec'd dv5t, but it came with a blown out speaker. So after hours with customer service, they gave me a case manager, Angelia, who promised me the world with upgrades and free accessories. Well, the replacement notebook she sent contained none of these upgrades. So i called her back and she said she would order a new replacement, but at that point they stopped customizing dv5t's, so she said she would order a dv7t for me. Well, she FINALLY got around to it, like 3 weeks later after having to call her constantly. We discussed the specs and I even sent her a screenshot of what I wanted so she wouldnt mess it up again. So what happens? She orders it with WXGA+ instead of WSXGA, no extra battery, no fingerprint reader, no hard drive upgrade, no tv tuner.. but she throws in a blu ray drive which i didnt even want! wow, seems like she wasnt even paying attention AGAIN. But now I cant even speak with her, as I'm sure she would some rectify this for me, as she was very cool. But this Elric guy is a complete bag.

HP/Compaq :: Have Replaced Broken Lcd Screen Onnc6320cannote Get Higher Resolution Than 1024x768

Dec 24, 2009

my laptop's lcd screen died 1 month after guarantee expiry. Since original LCD replacement screens are crazy expensive, I bought physically compatible lcd screen, that supports same resolution.

But I cannot get any higher resolution as 1024x768 (I've used 1400x1050 on original). I suspect there is a problem with drivers - my screen is recognized as plug and play monitor, but settings won't offer me any higher screen resolution.

Dell :: Discoloration And Temps

Nov 16, 2008

I've had my M1530 for almost 11 months now and I noticed this discoloration on the palm rest but more importantly are the temps. The CPU is hitting 97 degrees Celsius and the GPU is hitting at 94 degrees Celsius. I first noticed this after several hours of video conversions then I ran ORTHOS to replicate the results. Should I ask for a technician to replace the mainboard or heatsinK? I've tried to raise the issue with the GPU running at this temp before but to no avail. However, this is the first time the CPU has hit such high temps.

Dell :: Temps On M4400 OK?

Aug 11, 2009

I've got a Precision M4400 for which I did some DIY upgrading... Specifically, I put in a T9900 (3.06GHz, 35W TDP) processor and a 256Gb SSD. You can see the specs in my signature, actually.

The problem is that my temperatures seem to be going pretty high. Realtemp is saying that once I turn on the laptop, both CPU cores are at around 30-35 C. But after a very short while, this heats up to the mid-40's. And if I play Sims 3, let's say, the temperature can go up all the way to the high 70's. The GPU seems to stay at under 80 C, which I think should be fine .....

Dell :: 8700 Temps

Feb 25, 2008

i was wondering what the temps you guys are getting on your 8700 sli setups running games like crysis and such. i'm running crysis for example at 1280x800 or something, cant remember off hand, everything set to medium. game for about and hour and a half and my temps only showed to reach around 62C. now this is using i8kfangui and offsetting the gpu temp by 8. i'm not using the program to handle the cooling, just monitor the temps. i guess i was just expecting the temps to be higher, not that its bad, i guess maybe the cooling and bios on this laptop just work better than on a 1705. seems that i hit 70C almost daily on that thing depending on the game i was running.
