I'm new to this site and I'm quite surprised at the vastness of 'online' knowledge and happy to have learnt so much from the other threads ! Thanks !
But, I couldnt find any info on the new ATI 5000 series notebook GPU's in the Indian context. So
The DELL Studio series now comes with the HD 5470, which according to tha GPU benchmark isn't good enough for gaming. (The studio 17 here still carries the 4670, but, the better 5650 in UK) .
15 core i5-540M(2.53Ghz,4 Thread,turbo boost to 3.06 GHz, 3MB cache),
4GB 1333MHz DDR3,
ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5470,
1080p LED Full-HD dispaly,
backlit keyboard & 1 year CCADP
costs INR 59,000 (excluding only delivery)
Should I go for it or wait for them to upgrade the studio 17 to the better 5650 graphics ? (portability isn't an issue for me so the 17 is fine too ). IMO the price is too high. But I would like to know the opinion of you folk ! Are there any better alternatives(I doubt !)................
So at first I was confused but now I understand. First official, completely top to bottom support for all mobility cards (in the specified range of course) will come out with 10.3. What they didn't say that SOME mobility cards will be already supported with 10.2 and our " Dell (Studio XPS 16 Mobility Radeon HD 4670)" is on that list.
This was posted in another thread, but this wasn't the focus. They also have beta 10.3s...but I thought it was neat that official 10.2 WHQL certified drivers supported our card ....
This one has a newer CCC and display driver than the last. Download is up at: ftp://ftp.dell.com/video/R258233.exe
Display driver is only slightly newer. 8.683.2.1 is the version number. Originally released for "Studio Laptop - 1458" with Radeon 5430 and 5450 graphics. Supports:

I wanted to know if anyone has successfully done it or if it's even possible to do on this laptop. Sorry if this is a duplicate thread but sorting through 498 pages of information proved to be a bit daunting. I was looking into a bit and it supposedly possible to do via rivatuna but I figured I'd ask around before fiddling with it myself.
In the interest of maximum (safe) performance, I will test both generic ATI drivers and official Dell drivers with real-world benchmarks (probably mostly video games).
I will test Dell's official ATI driver, the generic ATI 10.4 driver, and any beta driver available from ATI's website. I will not be testing third party drivers.
ATI recommends that Dell laptop users use the Dell drivers. Dell recommends that Dell laptop users use the Dell drivers. Which is actually better? We're going to find out.
The test should take place within a week. Right now I need to find a few games that can produce consistent results (i.e. number of fps when watching a pre-recorded demo). Any ideas or requests for games to use? (free game demos, please)
I will be testing Resident Evil 5 benchmark demo, set in fixed mode, DX10, default settings. It gives an average fps reading.
I might also test Quake Live (I think it has a good timedemo test, need to find out) and Starcraft II beta if I can find a way to average its fps reading (does FRAPS do this?).
When I find 3 total tests that I can perform, I will begin testing.
UPDATE: thank you to gaah for performing the driver comparison test.
Test Results: The Dell driver's performance is equal to the performance of ATI 10.4 driver. The Dell driver offers additional features such as the HDMI/DP Audio driver and AVIVO.
Actual test results: XPS 16: Performance Test of Mobility Radeon HD 4670 drivers
I just bought a new DV7T 2000 and would like to replace the hard drive that came with the computer with a new one. I am researching about putting XP on it and looking for the necessary drivers prior to the installation. I need help locating the graphic card driver, it's the brand new ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4530 512MB. I was looking all over the web and there was no info about it. The ATI site doesn't provide drivers anymore.
I bought my notebook during last christmas and the specs are:
Model: Dell Studio XPS 16 HDD: Seagate 500GB 7200RPM OS: Win 7 Professional Graphics: ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4670 RAM: 4GB
Until last week it worked like a charm. Then, out of all the madness in the world, I chose to update the Driver of my graphics card. The installation and everything else went smooth. But later when I started to play, I noticed that there is a BLACK AREA around the window. Problem description goes something like this:
Just got my new FW CTO in the mail today and am loving it. I've spent some time downloading Windows Updates (I ordered Vista Business 64 with Fresh Start) and have been attempting to see if there are updated drivers for the HD 4650 1GB card that I have.
The version I have right now is: 8.583.2-090302a-076759C-Sony
Using Catalyst's "Update Driver" link (essentially a link to AMD's website) I was surprised to not see ANY Mobility HD 3000 or 4000 series drivers at all. Are there newer drivers than the ones that shipped with my laptop? If so, where can I download them?
Also, is it really very important to partition your drives?
Lastly, any chance that ArmaII will run on this?

I've got HP dv7-2043cl laptop. I want to find out what max GPU temp do you guys get, when you put stress on the graphics card. I am interested only in DV7-2xxx series with Ati Mobility 4650. Mine is around 46-48 when idle. Temp goes up to 70-74 in around three minutes when I run the Fur Mark stability test (1600x900, MSAA 8x, post processing and xtreme burning turned on). Clocks are at stock frequencies.
I wouldn't care about the temperature (it is not actually that high), but I have a problem. The computer just turns off when I play some games. For instance, if I play Fallout 3 at ultra settings (1600x900, 8x msaa, hdr), the computer powers off after a couple of minutes. Same thing with Crysis Warhead at high setting (1280x720, no msaa), even Half-Life 2 at max settings! When I lower the resolution in Fallout 3 to 1280x720 and MSAA to 4x, everything seems to be fine. Same thing with Half-Life 2. No similar luck with Crysis though. Looks like Crysis utilizes every single bit out of the GPU in any case.
My notebook is a HP Pavilion dv6-1220sb with a ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4530 graphics card. I am running Windows 7 and I am trying to install the drivers.
Out of the box Windows 7 detecs the graphics card as: ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4500 Series (Microsoft Corporation WDDM 1.1)
This are the hardware IDs: PCIVEN_1002&DEV_9553&SUBSYS_3628103C&REV_00 PCIVEN_1002&DEV_9553&SUBSYS_3628103C PCIVEN_1002&DEV_9553&CC_030000 PCIVEN_1002&DEV_9553&CC_0300
I have modified the .inf files by adding this line: "ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4530" = ati2mtag_M9x, PCIVEN_1002&DEV_9553 "ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4530" = ati2mtag_M9x, PCIVEN_1002&DEV_9553&SUBSYS_3628103C
When I run the installer it finishes very quickly and no software is installed and there are no error warnings.

Acer Ferrari 3400 ATI radeon 9700 mobility 2 gigs of ram Dual boot with Win XP pro and Ubuntu 7.04 feisty fawn Newest BIOS and software updates from Acer homepage
Few days ago I started having a problem with my Acer Ferrari 3400 laptop. It all started one morning when i tried to boot my computer.
I booted with ubuntu 7.04 feisty fawn and right after the operating system loaded the X graphical interface, the screen went black and the computer freezed.
I rebooted and tried again with Windows XP (I use a dual boot with Win XP and Ubuntu), and this time I got as far as the Windows loading screen. Then the loading screen turned black and the computer just rebooted itself.
I turned off the windows "auto-rebooting in case of error"-option and tried to boot with Win XP again.
This time I got a "blue screen of death (BSOD)" right after the Win XP loading screen. The BSOD indicated a problem with ati2dvag.dll and said that the "device driver got stuck in an infinite loop". Also the technical information said: ** STOP: 0x000000EA (0x8A56C218, 0x8A5BDAD8, 0xBACDFCB4, 0x00000001).
The numbers in parenthesis are always bit different each time i try to boot.
I googled the error and it seems this kind of a error message is very generic and could be the result of nearly anything ranging from software problems to hardware malfunction.
So this is what I have tried to do so far: - I booted Win XP with VGA mode -> Windows booted normally, but as I try to increase resolution the same BSOD appears and I have to reboot.
-I uninstalled all ATI video drivers from Win XP and windows booted normally. Of course, without video drivers, the performance of Windows was very sloppy. But it worked with higher resolutions.
- I installed the newest Omega Drivers for the vid card. Windows booted normally, but still had sloppy performance. I tried dxdiag and it showed that DirectDraw&Direct3D acceleration are unavailable. It also showed that video card memory was n/a. Win XP worked with high resolutions.
- I tried to boot Ubuntu linux with a generic vesa driver and it booted normally. Changed back to radeon drivers and it didn't work.
- I ran the Memtest 21 times and got no memory based errors
- I cleaned Win XP radeon drivers with DriverCleaner and tried a fresh install of radeon drivers. Didn't work.
- Finally, I did a Win XP recovery (reinstall) with the CD:s that came with the computer. The result: same error as before and now I can't even enter the VGA mode because the windows tries to raise the resolution right before entering the desktop -> BSOD
Would this be considered a good deal, or does anyone know of any other deals (e-value codes, coupon codes, etc.) for the Studio XPS 1647?
Also, I noticed some people are wanting the ATI 5000 series for the SXPS 16. What are the benefits of the 5000 series over the 4670 and what is the holdup? Does it require a new MB layout or something? I will mainly be using my computer for Internet/email, photo editing, and occasional HD video and DVD editing...I am not a PC gamer. So, would it worth waiting for the 5000 series? I'm sure the 4670 will suit me just fine, but I've read that it is 'last year's technology' and I generally like to try to get the latest available technology at the time of purchase...
Typical Dell issue. I just got my new Dell 15 5000 series laptop. Spent 1 hour setting it up. Took a break closed the lid and now its dead. I have a power light on the front but screen wont come back. Have held the power button down for 10 seconds then retried it but nothing. It is plugged in just no screen or activity.
I had an Acer Aspire in the 5000 series. A drink got spilled on the keyboard and I cut the power to the unit immediately. The motherboard was fried anyway, but the hard drive was salvageable. I had it put in a USB case to access the data as an external hard drive when I needed it. I had trouble with permissions on some folders and documents at times, but I was generally able to access what I needed.
A couple of weeks ago I opened a folder on the external hard drive that I hadn't been to since I replaced my notebook. I forgot what happened at the time, but I was called out of the office. Since then, I'm unable to read the USB hard drive at all. I get an error message that says "E Drive Not Accessible. Folder or Directory is Corrupt & Can Not Be Accessed". Every recovery solution I've found is for an internal hard drive. Will I need to try to put it in my current Aspire 6920 to do a directory repair/recovery? Is there a way to recover it externally without sending it out to a data recovery service?
I've recently purchased an Inspiron 15 5000 series and have noticed that performance is unusually slow for the specs, especially since coming from an Asus G73JH that was about 4 years old.
I've noticed that in the Task Manager on Windows 8, that CPU usage never goes above 30% and although the CPU is listed as an i7-4510u @ 2.00ghz, the Speed on the Task Manager page generally sits at 0.75ghz and never goes above 0.79ghz (generally when it goes above 0.75ghz, it for a brief moment).
I've been Googling this problem for a little while now and the only person I've found with a successful solution to this problem was on a desktop and had to replace their CMOS battery. Considering I'm on a laptop, I'd imagine this would void my warranty somewhat ....
I've run the Dell Support program and all the tests pass. I've also installed all the drivers from the Dell site (including the BIOS update) and all my Windows Updates are up to date.
So my g/f has bought this laptop from her brother for £100 and upon this he did tell us the battery is dead and the charger he is using ins't the official charger but the laptop works.
Upon getting the laptop I decided to try and make the battery last longer by discharging and charging it a few times fully, but this has just completely stopped the batery from working, fullstop.
So now I am having to run it off the power supply solely.
I have ordered a new battery from ebay and made sure it is the correct battery by checking the model of the laptop, model of the battery and not only that it's £15 cheaper then getting it from shops.
Dispite all that I still need to get a charger for this model, so I found one on ebay which said it was for the 5000 series but not my model, I emailed them and they confirmed to me that it wouldn't work for my laptop.
So now I am on the lookout for a charger for this laptop 5003WMLi but I don't know the model number for the charger so if anyone has an official charger for the 5003WLMi can they please post the model number so I can look for a cheap official charger.
Or if anyone knows what watt, voltage I need then I could perhaps get a charger to suit my needs................................
I bought a lenovo G50-40 Laptop recently. The Specs are as follows: Â 8GB RAM 1TB HDD AMD A8 Quad Core APU Radeon R5 M230 Graphics Card with 2GB graphics Memory Â I installed Windows 8 Enterprise 64-Bit Edition. I am facing is that I am not able to install the drivers for R5 M230 Graphics. I updated the BIOS, tried downloading latest drivers from AMD website too. Still, the system is just not recognising the hardware. It is showing up as Video Controller. But I am unable to install driver even after using driver update option.
My notebook isÂ hp pavilion 15-e014tx.Â whn I 1st used it i vedio adapter shows that its using amd radeon hd 8600 series.Â bt after a while its using the intel hd 400.....i upgrated many times amd driver bt every time it updates the intel driver why is that?
I am using Lenovo G5070 and I installed the Graphic Drivers for Win7 but the main screen is very dim and its using the Intel VGA instead of the AMD Radeon display. I downloaded the latest drivers from the support site. How can I switch the main screen to AMD Radeon VGA
