Dell :: D830 Display Downgrade

Mar 10, 2009

I'm getting headaches from my 1680 x 1050 display, it's a matte finish and has a very narrow viewing angle.

I run it at 1280 x 768 for best size and aspect, but it's then a bit fuzzy, too. Is it a reasonable change to go to a 1280 x 800 high-gloss display to get crisp text and wide viewing angle?

Dell Latitude D830 :: Multiple Display Drivers

Mar 4, 2013

I have two Latitude D830 laptops.

They are mostly identical, but with two exceptions.

1. One has a but faster processor than the other.
2. One used shared memory for the video (Intel Driver) and the other has an nVidia Quadro video card with respective driver.

I would like to be able to swap the hard disks between the two computer.

My question is, can I install both sets of drivers and assume the respective computer will know what to do?

Dell :: D830 Suddenly Getting HOT!

Aug 3, 2009

So for the past month or so, my D830 has been getting incredibly hot - something it has never done before. In fact, I used to 'brag' about how cool and quiet it was.

Now, about 20 - 30 minutes into computing, it's fans whirl at full speed and the entire bottom and right palm area get very, very, hot - even when the notebook is on a hard, flat surface.

Intel T7500 @ 2.2Ghz

Windows XP Pro

Dell :: D830 Powered USB 2.0 Port

Mar 16, 2009

The Dell D830 comes equipped with one powered USB port at the rear.

The powered USB port is compatible with USB 2.0 connector. When used with a powered USB connector that looks like a bloated RJ45, powered USB port can supply 5V (beige), 12V (blue), or 24V (red)..

They are color-coded and connectors are keyed to distinguish between them..

Dell :: Does Anyone Have In Their Possession A D830 With Nvs140m

Dec 27, 2007

I had a D620 with the nvs120m, and I was very disappointed by graphics performance. I'm told the 140 is build off of an 8400, which should be much better than the 7300 the 120 is built off of. Also, my D620 had 64mb dedicated, and I'm told the D830 has 256mb dedicated. Does anyone who actually HAS the laptop have any input on how the thing handles games? I'm not expecting it to do well, but my D620 couldn't run anything even with the lowest setting on.

Dell :: Quadro NVS140M And Latitude D830

Oct 2, 2008

I'm starting to get some weird video symptoms on my Latitude D830 with the Nvidia Quadro NVS140M video. Fairly random at this point, maybe once or twice a week, the screen does something weird in terms of displaying stuff that it completely shouldn't, even during boot-up.

Don't know if this chip is a member of the family of Nvidia chips that suffers from the bugs, but has anyone else experienced this with a heavily-used Latitude D830 yet?

If I have to get a new motherboard, has Nvidia actually implemented a solution, or are they still shipping the same parts? I have ~3 years of warranty left (plus the bonus year), but I don't look forward to a motherboard replacement every year or so.

Dell :: D830 Touchpad No Scroll Settings

May 18, 2010

I've just bought a used Dell Latitude D830 (UK, XP SP2) and find the touchpad won't scroll. Otherwise pad, trackpoint and buttons all work ok.

I went into Control Panel assuming that the scroll areas weren't set up. Not so - unlike on my old C640, there are no separate Synaptics set-up tabs. Nothing - and it claims there's a Microsoft mouse plugged into PS2 .

Dell :: Latitude D830 PCIe WLAN

Jan 15, 2009

Will the Dell Latitude D830 have any trouble supporting an Intel WiFi Link 5300 WLAN card?

I know its a generation newer than my laptop but the interface is the same so it should work without any issues, right?

Im basically looking for a wireless g stable, low power, wlan card that will work with this laptop and think the wifi link 5300 may fit the bill.

Dell :: Latitude D830 Touchpad Drivers

May 4, 2010

Dear All

I've been using Dell Inspiron for more than 3 years. It had a nice touchpad driver with which i could assign shortcuts to all the four corners of touchpad (e.g., Maximizing a window, minimizing, closing, and running a special application etc.). Now i m used to those shortcuts but they are not available in the new drivers of Dell Latitude D830, that i recently got. Can anybody point to the D830 touchpad driver having this facility or any free third party utility for that?

Dell :: D830 With T7300 Multiplier Issue

Feb 7, 2010

Laptops been working great for years.

Finally put Windows 7 x64 on the other day and I didn't notice at first but after a few weeks I started realizing the thing just isn't as fast for normal tasks as it used to be.

I remember I used to run speedswitch for XP back in the day and it maxed my CPU clock all the time. It obviously doesn't work for 7x64. So I loaded up CPUZID to check things out.

Basically the key reading is:

Current MHZ: 1595.54 Current Multiplier: 8x
Original MHZ: 2000 Origina Multiplier: 10x

Dell :: D830 Service Tag = Wrong Drivers

Jun 10, 2009

i've recently purchased a 2nd hand dell D830 laptop. it was running windows vista and everything was working fine. but i need to have it running XP, so i formatted and installed XP PRO.

entered the service tag on support site, downloaded the "shipping" drivers. most of them install, some terminate with errors, others tell me that the hardware isn't found. no audio, also wrong display drivers, points me to intel drivers, but that doesn't install, nvidia one does the trick... just endless problems, but when i revert to VISTA, it all works again.

i need this machine to run xp.

Dell :: D830 Screen (a Very Small Black Speck)

Feb 1, 2009

I have owned a 10-month-old Latitude D830 (w/1680x1050 screen) for about 8 months now. It's a great machine, but I've decided to sell it in favour of something smaller.

Since I bought it, it has had a very small black speck on the screen that does not wipe away when cleaning it. To me it looks like dust behind the LCD surface rather than a dead pixel .....

Dell :: D830 Motherboard Compatible With D820 Laptop

Jun 23, 2009

my motherboard just crashed on me and I need to get a replacement for it and would like to catch two flies with one hit and upgrade my cpu while I`m at it but the d820 motherboard doesn`t support the better newer ones and i feel the d820 computer i own is still perfect for my needs.

Therefore I was thinking if the d830 motherboard has the same fit as the prior since after some looking into it they look very much alike but it would kinda suck if it didn`t fit.

Dell :: My New Precision M4300 Thinks It's A Latitude D830

Apr 28, 2009

I just got a new Dell Precision M4300 here in Israel (refurbished, not directly from Dell) with the following configuration:

CPU: Core 2 Extreme X9000
LCD: 15.4" WUXGA
Graphics: Quadro NVS 140M (apparently)

My question is as follows:

It in fact says Precision M4300 on the front of the laptop near the keyboard,
But when I turn it on it identifies itself as a Latitude D830.

I bought the laptop thinking I was getting a Quadro FX360M (it is CAD certified which is important to me as I work with their program).

What is going on? was I fooled in some way?

If I apply the latest M4300 BIOS update will it change the names of the laptop model and the graphics card?

Dell :: D830 Adaptive Screen Brightness Win7

Dec 31, 2009

does anybody know how to get the Windows 7 built-in screen brightness control to work with the D830?

Manual brightness control via FN+Up/Down works perfect, but Windows 7 does not offer software brightness control in energy options.

My second notebook (5 years old Toshiba) offers this (you will see a brightness slider when clicking on the battery/energy symbol in system tray).
As a result Windows is dimming (not turning off) the display automatically after a few minutes idle time.
System is Latidtude D830 with Intel onboard graphics and 1680x1050 screen

Dell Latitude D830 :: Possible To Use A 1066 MHz FSB Processor In 800 FSB System

Nov 18, 2012

I've got an E6400 that got crushed and an almost unused D830. I want to cannibalize the E6400 and install it in 1.8 MHz 512 MB D830. I've zeroed the SSD, checked the processor and RAM and was wondering if it is possible to use a 1066 MHz FSB processor in an 800 FSB system,if it would recognize the 800 MHz memory and if there is a BIOS modification to allow the SSD to work to it's potential?

Windows 7 32-bit upgrade CD (not SP1), from XP. no anti-virus yet. Windows Updates current to SP1.I have always had my DELL mouse plugged in to rear port, but for unknown reasons it is now dead to all USB devices?

Mouse is now recognized by side USB port, but I like to keep them free for bulky flash drives..I tried uninstalling all ports/refresh from Device Manager, but rear port is still dead to all USB devices.I then tried a repair install from desktop, but still dead (1st time HD light flashed for 1sec, then nothing from then on).

Dell :: Replacing Laptop Fans, And General Cooling Tips For D830

Aug 20, 2009

I'd like to replace the fan in my laptop (Dell's Latitude d830) with a faster/better one. From what I've seen, most people seem to think that this is impossible.

I, however, find this hard to believe that Dell would have included the only possible fan that's compatible with this laptop, or that this particular fan is the best possible cooling option.

Why is it so hard to upgrade in the first place? I'm sure it can be done, I've opened up my laptop a few times in the past and it's not exactly rocket science .....

Dell Latitude D830 :: Can Enter BIOS But Settings Are Locked With Password

Dec 9, 2013

Recently I purchased a Dell Latitude D830 motherboard as a replacement for the damaged one in my own system.

The seller didn't tell me that the system has a customized bios and a password, instead he announced it as 'password free'. The board is working and I can enter the BIOS but all settings are locked with a password.

As the seller refuses to take it back, I need to reset the system. The first owner of the board is known and I have the service tag ready. Is there any chance to reflash an original DELL BIOS and to reset the password(s)?

Dell Latitude D830 :: Screen Went Black / Num And Caps Flash And Scroll Is On Permanently

Feb 14, 2013

About a week ago, the (external) screen of my dell lattitude D830 went completely black. I hadn't got a clue wat to do, so I waited a while, and when nothing happened I turned off the computer. I've been googling for a while, and found something about POST-codes here [URL] ..... apparently the video-card doesn't work anymore (If I start the computer with FN+power, Num and Caps flash, and Scroll burns permanently). Lucky for me my Dell was old, and I had recently replaced it, but I still wanted to use my old computer for rendering etcera. Would this still be possible? I have the idea that the computer doesn't boot anymore (I can't see whether that's true, since there's no screen). Would it be possible to make it boot again, so that I can use my old Dell on a network?

Dell Latitude D830 :: D/Port Replicator Power Light Flashing Green And Orange

Jan 28, 2010

One of my users brought me this issue the other day. He is using a Latitude D830 laptop with a D/port docking station.  With or without the laptop docked, The power button on the docking station flashes Orange and Green when powered.    I've swapped power bricks for the dock.   The laptop still seems to charge while being docked.   After swapping the dock, the new dock is fine.

What might be causing it?  Is the dock dead?  Could it be a failed port on the docking station?

Im just not sure which operating system i should go with now until then.
Did anyone else have this delemna?
