Dell :: Dead E1705 Motherboard

Oct 22, 2007

Any retailers online sell just the motherboard? Or should we go ahead and just get a refurbed e1705 and salvage the hard drive and processor?

Dell :: M1710 Motherboard In An E1705

Jul 23, 2007

A few auctions on Ebay claim the m1710's mobo will also drop into an e1705. That would allow for up 4GB RAM, and also allow me to use the T7600G CPU. I'm sure someone else has thought of this already. Is it possilbe? I see the motherboard for around $300.

Dell :: M90 Or M1710 Bios On E1705 Motherboard

Aug 9, 2009

I want to know how to flash my E1705 MB with the M1710 or M90 Bios. I was told by 2 Dell repair shops I could gain the 10/100/1000 ethernet by flashing my E1705 board with the bios from the M1710 or M90.

I made a CD with the M1710 bios but when I boot up from the CD and try to run the Bios file for the M1710 I get a big red x saying that this bios is not supported on this board

Dell :: On The 9400/E1705 How Can You Tell If Its The Motherboard Or Video Card ?

Mar 12, 2010

I got a Dell Inspiron 9400/E1705 here that will not boot. The owner said he put into hibernate and went home, when he came in and turned it back on it was sluggish for about 10 minutes, he powered it off and then it would not power back up.

When you turn on the power the power and HD lights come on, you hear what sounds like the HD doing some movement and then it shuts down in a few seconds.

I removed the HD, ram, dvd, wifi, modem and tested it with same results. Also took out the CMOS battery to try to reset the BIOS and put it all back together and same thing.

CPU fan does not spin at all on power up, not sure if this model is supposed to do that little 5 second thing most of them do.

No beeps, nothing on the screen, etc.

Is there a way to determine if its the motherboard OR the video card, as this has a discrete video card, not integrated. Would you get any kind of system response if the video card was dead but the motherboard/cpu was ok ?. I would rather replace one and not both if I can tell which to go after first.

thanks for any ideas or advice.

Dell :: E1505 Not Booting: Suspect Dead Motherboard

Feb 23, 2009

After a night away from town, leaving my laptop on as I usually do, came back to find a black screen with computer still running. I suspect Windows Update ran and had trouble with something. Powered off, turned back on, and the startup hung as the OS was loading.

Safe mode said the hang was at crcdisk.sys (I searched for this on the internet, but was not able to do much with it, as will soon be seen). I got my Vista installation CD and tried to boot from it, but it would not -- not even if I removed the hard drive from the computer. A friend had a similar laptop, and we exchanged hard drives; his would not boot in mine, but mine would in his (all data intact). I tried reseating the RAM;

no good. Another friend lent me a Ubuntu boot cd, which also did not complete loading. Long story short, I can't get anywhere where I can do anything meaningfully useful. I can't get to a command line to run chkdsk, or to the internet to flash my BIOS, or to a text editor to write papers for school. The people I've talked with say probably the motherboard is bad.

I was able to get to an unhelpful IT fellow for a few minutes, and he was able to boot Windows 98 from CD, but he didn't let me do anything, or have the CD. I'm going to try to find one and see what I can do from it .....

Dell :: Dead Graphics E1705 Said They Have Fix?

Aug 23, 2009

I have twins and bought two E1705 about two years ago and have been very pleased with them. I had one start the graphics problems (will not boot to windows and has the vertical lines at POST) you have all heard about and after changing the motherboard twice and graphics three times within about six weeks Dell suggested a change out to a XPS 1640, 15 days later it showed up (brand new and no problems).
One week after we received the 1640 my other son's computer is doing the same thing. I asked Dell if we could skip the change outs and go with the 1640 but they did not go for that. I will be shipping the E1705 back to them this time instead of the technician coming to my home. My question is that Dell has a fix now that they did not have a month ago.
Anyone have any ideas what they think they will be doing? They can not change to a ATI 1400 to run cooler because that card stinks. They could change that the fans run all the time but that seems silly. I am hoping they change me to one with two pipes instead of one but I do not know if they will modify the case like some have done to add the 7950 cards. Anyone else had Dell do a repair in warranty in the last few weeks so I know what i am looking at? We really like the E1705 but need something that is reliable.

Dell :: 7900GS Dead- E1705

Oct 26, 2007

I woke up from my nap today to see my 1 year old E1705 with the blue screen of death, except this time there were verticle lines all over the place like there was a video card problem.

So I reboot and It cant get into windows, and the lines come back. It starts to load vista then goes to the blue screen saying I have a memory/parity error. Next I try safemode and it works fine. No lines, no memory errors, no blue screens.

The first thing that came to mind is my overclocked 7900GS. Right now I am in the process of setting it back to the stock clocks. I feel like maybe I fried my beloved card with the slight overclock Ive had on it for the past year. Maybe Im right, maybe Im wrong.

If this doesnt work, what the heck do I do? Video card? Memory? I dont want to have to call Dell.

Dell :: Dead 7900 Gs In My E1705

Dec 8, 2008

I have a dell inspiron e1705 with a nvidia geforce go 7900 gs gpu installed. I was playing call of duty 4 on saturday and just after 5 mins of game play blue lines go across the screen and the screen goes black. The audio was still playing. I manually shut down the comp and restarted. When the dell screen came up after restarting orange and blue lines were visible. I could see the Microsoft loading bar but after that disappeared the screen went black and I could not log into windows. I downloaded the latest driver from nvidia, installed it, and restarted, but the same thing happened, Microsoft loading bar and then black screen. After about a minute of the black screen, a blue screen pops and says windows is shutting down form a hardware error to prevent damage and it also says something about a failure of the display driver.

Anyway, heres all the things I did so far to try to fix my problem;
-did a system restore to 2 days ago which didn't solve the problem.
-ran a memory diagnostics test and passed..
-ran a scan disk, no problems.
-uninstalled the video card and reinstalled with the latest driver which still did nothing.

Sony :: Motherboard Dead. Model #s

May 7, 2010

On the back of my Sony laptop, the model says PCG-6L2L, but when I took it in to servicing to a SONY authorized dealer for a diagnosis, the paper it came back with said Model VGNSZ260P. What's up with that? Is this the same thing, just different numbers? My laptop is a Z series, but nowhere on my laptop does it say anything about Z series or VGN. Similarily, my friend just bought a brand new Z series laptop that was sold as a VGN (over $2500), yet again, on the back of his there is a PCG model number and nowhere does it say anything about VGN or Z series?

Secondly, and more importantly.

The diagnosis came back negative. Everything works (cpu, ram, video, lcd, etc etc), but the actual system board, motherboard, is dead. When I boot up, it shows the SONY screen and I can get to BIOS, but as soon as it hits bios, or about 5 seconds after SONY symbol, everything freezes.

Naturally, the $800 they wanted is ridiculous. I am very tech savvy, especially with computers, I've been building them for a very long time, but have little experience with laptops. I am convinced that I can fix this if I can find a motherboard for it....

Dell :: Dead Video Card - E1705

Feb 25, 2008

Alright, as you can see in my sig, I am the "lucky" owner of a GeForce 7800. I bought my E1705 RIGHT before the Core Duo 2 and 7900 GS wave, but I haven't had any real problems (besides the annoying overheating of the 7800, never caused a crash, just low FPS sometimes during gaming).

Well I went to check my laptop this morning, and after the Windows loading screen (during the Welcome screen) it would glitch and get all scrambled, then jam up.

So I went into safe mode, un-installed all the video drivers, rebooted and it worked fine. Went and downloaded the newest drivers possible from the Official Dell site just to make sure I wasn't using faulty drivers.

But halfway through the install the screen would glitch and what not, I had to go back into safe mode and uninstall the drivers again and it worked fine.

This laptop has no warranty or anything, so if it truly is that the video card finally died I guess my only option is to buy a 7900 GS or GTX?

Just looking for some opinions (I'd hate to buy a card and find out it was some other problem with the laptop, even though I'm not a fan of this 7800 ) to make sure this truly is a video card problem, and to see if anyone knows where I might find a GS/GTX for decent prices.

Dell :: Is Replacing My Dead E1705 Laptop

Feb 20, 2009

My Inspiron e1705 laptop would not boot. Turns out it is a bad graphics card. Dell no longer has the graphics card in stock to ship a new one to me, so they are sending me a whole new laptop. The support guy said all of the components will be the same or better.

Anyone have any idea what I should expect to get? Will it be a new laptop or refurbished? I really liked the laptop I have now, and wish I did not have to replace it, but if I truly get something better, then I guess it is ok.

I guess I should have asked Dell this, but does anyone also know if my warranty (which has 1.5 years out of 4 left) will still be good on the new laptop?

Dell :: E1705 + Weird BSOD = Dead PC

Nov 12, 2008

My computer has been rendered incapacitated in the last week due to an odd blue screen error. Now when the problem initially occured i was opening the application World of Warcraft, as i loaded into the Login screen i was greeted by this odd blue screen error that read!

*** Hardware Malfunction
Call your hardware vendor for support
NMI: Parity Check/Memory Parity Error
*** The system has halted ***

Ok so i was rather suprised with this occuring as i had recently replaced my Video Card (From ATI Mobility x1400 to a Nvidia GeForce Go 7900 GS) as well as raising my ram from 1054MB (PC25300 NONECC UNBUFFERED 200PIN DDR2 SODIMM) to OCZ 3GB (2GB + 1GB) 200-Pin DDR2 SO-DIMM DDR2 667 (PC2 5400)

Now I read a few threads about this initial error and was told it could be many things, anything from a busted memory stick to a busted mother board and HD. Anyways once i restarted my computer i was now greeted with a more normal looking BSOD, which until i turned auto-reboot off i couldn't read. This new error read as follows.


Yada-yada i have all the error code numbers as well. I read up on this error code and it TOO can be caused by memory, so now my first thought is switch out my old memory and try it again right? So i proceed in having to reinstall Windows, replacing my new RAM with the old. Get my system up and running, everything working fine and then about 3 minutes into playing the Left 4 Dead demo I get the inital error once again and i'm stuck now.

I have now been lead to believe that this is indeed as i feared a hardware problem.. I'm going to be running a memtest on ALL 4 of my RAM sticks to just see exactly what's going on with my memory.

Is there anything else someone could help me to do? I will post my laptop's spec's as well as the Error Codes and Parameters for each of the 4 system errors i recived (2 at the inital screen 2 at the secondary on startup)

E1705 Laptop
Intel Core Duo T2500 @ 2.0 GHZ
1GB (2 x 5**MB) Dell Stock RAM (see all RAM spec's above)
256MB Nvidia GeForce Go 7900 GS
70GB hard drive
Sigma-Tel sound card
Running Windows XP professional SP3

Now for all the error codes along with dates / times:

11/8/08 (First Error)
11:24 PM

Error Code 10000050
Parameter1 f8055dbc
Parameter2 00000000
Parameter3 8052a8e4
Parameter4 00000000

11:32 PM

Error Code 10000050
Parameter1 f80b4dbc
Parameter2 00000000
Parameter3 8052a8e4
Parameter4 00000000

11/9/08 (Second Error)
8:43 AM

Error Code 10000050
Parameter1 f7a09dbc
Parameter2 00000000
Parameter3 8052a8e4
Parameter4 00000000

8:48 AM

Error Code 10000050
Parameter1 f7c8edbc
Parameter2 00000000
Parameter3 8052a8e4
Parameter4 00000000


Ok so I am going to begin a Memtest on all my RAM asap, should take a while. Also I'm concerned with these errors because I had been using my Video Card as well as the new RAM for a couple of weeks straight without any errors and my computer running flawlessly. I am afraid it probably isn't a memory error but i can hope.

Dell :: E1705, Dead Video Card

Mar 4, 2008

The screen on my 1705 has recently become cranky... scrambled, alternating between being on/off, inevitably leading to a BlueSOD (with nv4_disp error message.) Managed to check/update video drivers, but computer is pretty much non-functioning now.

Only thing that I can think of is that video card overheated and fried. In hindsight, I realize that I had spent a couple hours watching 24 with the computer not a good surface to allow ventilation.

Any other opinions before a I spend a couple hundred bucks on a new card?

Dell :: Least Expensive Solution For A Dead Video Card In E1705?

Feb 7, 2009

I'm getting the same thing -- artifacts during bootup, drivers won't initialize properly, safe mode works in VGA mode but there are patterns throughout.

I also went into Dell diagnostics and in the second diagnostic program (not the initial one that comes up, but the second one you actually interact with after exiting the first one) it will actually check the memory of the video card, contrary to what I've read around here ......

Lenovo T400 / T500 :: Beep Codes Indicate A Dead Motherboard

Nov 6, 2014

My wife's T400 (2767-CP9) died recently. The beep codes indicate a dead motherboard. Her HD is fine and in fact I was able to pull off data after putting the HD in another laptop and booting with a live Linux CD. So...the data is recovered and safe with nothing lost.
Question is: I have found a few used T400's and am about to purchase one very close to hers and was curious if I would be able to just put her HD in the machine and just go from there.
The machine in question is also a T400, but the exact model number is 2767-H7U. Would the difference between a 2767-CP9 and 2767-H7U matter?
here are the stats for both: URL...

The only difference besides batteries seems to be the processor.If windows balks at this, can I just do a "product recovery" in the new machine with the old HD? The only reason this is an issue is.....her laptop was a refurb unit purchased from IBM and came with win7 as OS. The replacement machine in question has windows vista installed.

Dell :: Dead Screen Or Dead Video Card

Mar 29, 2008

I am at my wits end with my e1705. I had a sudden meltdown about 2 weeks ago... screen went scrambled, BSOD,etc...

Performed diagnostic, memory on video card came back as bad. Replaced with new card (from Dell), reinstalled OS, completely reinstalled nVidea drivers from Dell (Used driver cleaner too)...

Everything went smooth for a couple hours after this was completed yesterday (full diagnostic showed no errors), but after booting up today, after about 5 or 10 minutes of use screen freezes and turns either solid cyan or black... a small pattern of thin lines appears also.

Dell :: M170 With Motherboard Or Gpu

Jan 15, 2008

i'm having trouble with my XPS m170.

It has:

Pentium M 760 2Ghz
1Gb Ram
60Gb HDD
Geforce Go 7800GTX 256mb
Windows Media Center 2005

I was playing CS:S, and all of a sudden i was getting artifacts on the display. Than the computer froze up and i had to power the laptop down manually.

I was able to restart the computer in safe mode a couple times.

But wow when i try to restart the computer, i'm getting artifacts on the Dell Splash screen. And then it would freeze up.

What do you think the issue is? At first i was thinking the GPU is the problem. But now i'm beginning to think its the motherboards.

Dell :: I9400M1710 Motherboard For LED's

Sep 6, 2007

I have recently put an M1710 LCD screen cover on my I9400, and the palmrest with the XPS logo in it.

I saw while I had my system apart my motherboard has the solder joints on it for the plugs for the LED's but no plugs for them(has them at the front for the speakers, next to the fans and next to the connection for the monitor).

Is it possible to solder the plugs on, will they work ?? I guess I will need a new BIOS for them ? anyone done it. Would appreciate any info/help. what plugs are they ?

Also is the XPS logo in the touchpad controlable ? mine isn't working at the moment (it's plugged in and was bought second hand but supposidly working ?) anyone know. I know others have done this mod.

Dell :: Motherboard Replacement, Anything New?

Feb 9, 2009

After some issues i had with my GPU, Dell agreed to replace both my Heatsink and Motherboard, and i wanted to ask those who have had replacements in the past; has anything changed since july 2008? (when i bought my m1530)

have they improved the heatsink, or even changed it? ( i got the aluminum one, crappy piece of engineering right there )
and im sure the GPU issues are still present, but do they run cooler now ?

im asking this because in July the "defective Nvidia GPUs" were still in the dark, and the news about them was a mere rumor...

Dell :: How Do I Identify My Motherboard

The motherboard on my XPS M1330 needs replacing for the second time. First time it was replaced under warranty, but my system is now out of warranty so I'm going to replace it myself.

I phoned Dell and they're charging 400 for a replacement but I can get it cheaper if I knew the Dell part number. I have the NVIDIA 8400M GS.

From doing some research, here are some part numbers for motherboards for XPS M1330's:

Dell :: Motherboard Downgraded?

Aug 6, 2009

Dell has replaced my SXPS 16s motherboard thrice in order to solve my overheating issues and some usb errors in the diagnostics and each time i have noticed that my motherboard has been downgraded.

The initial one was an A02, replaced by an A02 (new), replaced by an A01 (new), and then replaced by an A00 (refurbed).

All this hassle never solved my problems but introduced a new one - the sound latency issue. I just play a song in WMP and start browsing and the sound crackles and pops so badly that I feel like bloody throwing this thing out of the window, although I cant coz its darn expensive
