Dell :: Does The Inspiron 1720 Come With A DVI Or HDMI Video Output Option


When I looked at the "Overview" on the Inspiron 1720 at Dell's site I noticed that there were no DVI/HDMI video output ports. Can someone please confirm this? Is the only monitor output a VGA port? If so I think this royally sucks! My e1705 comes with both VGA & DVI...

Dell :: No HDMI Or DVI In The New Inspiron (II)
I was amazed by the passion put by some people here, in older threads, about Dell not including HDMI ports on Inspiron.

IMHO, not using any kind of DRM-enabled interface it's a GOOD THING (tm) - please look why:

http://www.defectivebydesign.org/

Maybe that's not a coincidence that 1525s are listed as 100% free-software compatible...

Dell :: HDMI Output On XPS-16: Lose Standard Video?
After 5 happy years with a fully working I9300 I NEED to upgrade to a notebook that will handle Blu-ray burning ,

HD video editing, and output to HDMI port. I am noticing that notebooks like the XPS-16 and Sony FW series have HDMI output ports but no SVideo or Composite ports (but do have VGA 'monitor'

will STILL want to output to my standard video TV or to any other screen or system with only SVideo or composite inputs.

Dell :: Inspiron 1764 HDMI Output?
I'm doing a bit of shopping for friends... they're on a tight budget and have basic needs, so I thought the Inspiron 17 would be a good choice.

I was looking at the core i3 model listed at 799$ here.

In all the images we can clearly see an HDMI port on the left side of the laptop, but it is not listed in the Tech Specs section.

I asked a sales rep through chat but he couldnt provide me with convincing evidence that this laptop did/did not have an HDMI port.

Dell :: Video Drivers For Inspiron 1720, For Gaming
I have games such as COD4, Crysis, and Assassins Creed. What are the best drivers I can get for this laptop in order to play these games with good quality? I've done some reading and saw that it's possible to overclock the GPU.

Is this safe? Is it really worth it? I'd like to try and increase the quality. I've never really played Crysis or Assassins creed because it was a bit choppy.

I have since installed the T9300 processor and havn't tried crysis since as I replaced my HDD with a 7200 vs the 5400 that was in it.

Dell :: Inspiron 1720: Want To Upgrade Video Card (intel 965)
i would like to upgrade my video card, if it is possible and if it is worth it. my 1720 has the mobile intel 965 express chipset family. ive seen sigs (dr650se and someformofhuman) stating that they have the nvidia 8600m gt and was wondering if this is compatible with my 1720.

also i found out through this forum that i can upgrade my cpu (which is the measly t5450 1.66 ghz) to the beastly t9300, and add a 2nd hard drive (which is my first step in upgrading this dell because i only have a 160 gb drive).

i was looking for a new laptop until i came across this forum and found out the possibilities of my dell. i decided to stick with this and just upgrade it! thanks for the insight, and thanks in advance for all the help that i will be asking for!

Dell :: I9300 With ATI X300 Vga/dvi Output
I was wondering whether there was anyway to plug two external monitors into the i9300 so that one was the 2nd display and the other replaced the main display on the i9300. I'd quite like to use my laptop as a desktop pc (have the lid closed and hidden away somewhere) but I suspect that the two outputs are mirror/cloned versions of each other - can anyone clarify? And if this is the case, are there any compatible nvidia cards that I can use that will allow me to use two separate external monitors at the same time?

Sony :: Hdmi Out To Dvi Monitor
I just bought 22" LCD monitor (LG m2294A). It has HDMI in, DVI in, and VGA. I tried connecting my Vaio SR to it with an HDMI cable. Sadly, it didnt work, the monitor displayed a message saying "out of range". In the monitor's user manual I later noticed that HDMI-PC mode is "not supported".

It does however support DVI-PC mode. So my question is, has anyone tried using one of those HDMI-DVI cables to connect their SR's to a DVI monitor? I have read online that going from HDMI to DVI isn't as simple as going from DVI to HDMI. I would really hate to have to connect to the monitor via VGA since I want to get use out of my HDMI out. While I wait for my cable to get here, I would like to read about your experiences in the matter.

Dell :: Using DVI-HDMI Cable To Drive External Monitor
I am considering a 24" monitor which I need t share as a second on my 1710, as well as the primary on my gaming rig (2X8800GTX SLI).

I want to drive it @ 1920*1200. I don�t want to use the VGA connector for one of the machines, when I do resolution drops to a max of around 1600*1100. So, I am looking at some of the monitors that have DVI and HDMI connectors. The thought was to connect one of the machines via HDMI with a special cable like one from bluejean cable, and use the other straight through, and choose a monitor with an easy one touch toggle between the two.

I read some horror stories that the HDMI link via a DVI-HDMI cable isn't optimal, and someitmes has its own resolution or sync limits. Does anyone know about this?

My other choice is a cheapo DVI switch, but it would be cool just to hit the input button.

HP/Compaq :: How Important Is DVI / HDMI For A 24 Inch Display
I'm trying to decide between a HP 6930p (14.1") or 8530p (15.4"). I would prefer a 14 inch laptop. However, the 6930p only has a VGA port; the 8530p has an HDMI port. Probably 50% of the time its in use, it will be connected to a 24 inch display (a Dell 2408wfp).

I am concerned about the difference in picture quality between the VGA versus the digital connection? In practice, how much difference am I likely to notice? I will be using it mainly for office type work.

Apple :: DVI --> HDMI Cable Work
I currently have a 13" Unibody Macbook and I'm looking to hook it up to a 32" Sony Bravia LCD.

I am looking to purchase the Monoprice Mini-DP --> DVI dongle and hook that up with my Monster 400 HDMI to DVI cable.

I have the very same cable which I use to connect my HP desktop to my Sony LCD TV.

My only concern right now is what I read about DVI-I versus DVI-D. On the cable's packaging it says "SINGLE-LINK Connection ... For connecting HDMI to DVI components up to 1080i resolution"

I'm looking at the pins on the DVI portion of the cable and its group liked this:

9 pins (3x3) SPACE 9 pins (3x3) SPACE horizontal metallic piece.

The Monoprice adapter and the Apple adapter looks different in terms of the slots which the pins will go through.

I just want to make sure I have right components before I buy the adapter.

Sony :: Vaio Z1 And HDMI Output
Ive been using a 40 inch HDTV ever since I received my Z about a month ago. I had to move recently, and now when i attempt to use the display it looks very strange, almost as if someone turned the digital vibrance or contrast setting up all the way. The text looks strange, and it is overall unpleasant to look at. I checked all of the settings and everything is the same as before, and tried varying the resolution and color settings. I can't figure it out!

I can take a picture if that would help explain better. I also checked the TV's settings and I do not believe that is the issue.

I also tried reinstalling the NVIDIA drivers from sonys website to no avail.

Dell :: HDMI Output Showing Postage Stamped
new SXPS 16 owner (Windows 7). I'm trying to run HDMI out to an external XL2370 Samsung monitor.

Works, but the image shows postage stamped (black border on all four sides. So the image is 21" diagonally on my 23" diagonal screen).

If I hook the SXPS to my big TV via HDMI, I get the same result (postage stamp).

If I hook up my HD camcorder to either my TV or my new monitor via the HDMI port, the image fills the screen as expected.

If I hook up the SXPS to the new monitor via VGA, it fills the screen. So this points to the HDMI output of LT being the problem...

Dell :: M1530 HDMI Output Can't Get The Resolution Right
I decided to try playing some 720p video on my Sanyo 42" LCD HDTV (native res 1366x768). I assumed it would be as easy as just connecting an HDMI cable and setting my m1530 to clone desktop.. I couldn't have been more wrong.

After doing some research it appears that LCD HDTVs aren't as flexible as regular LCD monitors with respect to HDMI input. No matter what I do, the screen always appears cropped around the edges on my TV.

What I've tried so far:
1) Setting a custom 1366x768 resolution in the nVidia control panel.
2) Tried setting my hdtv as primary monitor and setting the res.
3) Used Powerstrip (program) in an attempt to force a 1366x768 res (not sure if I'm doing this entirely correctly, I'm a little confused over what the correct advanced timings should be).
4) I hear this issue is called "overscan", so I looked through my TV menu for any overscan or zoom/image scaling options but couldn't find any.

I'm using the 179.28 Nvidia driver.

I'm running out of things to try, does anyone know how to make this thing work?

Dell :: Does The XPS M1530 HDMI Port Output PCM
I have heard numerous comments stating that individuals are only getting Stereo Sound from their HDMI port but then other comments explaining that yes, indeed, it supports Dolby Digital....5.1 Audio etc.

The HDMI port is 1.2 which allows for a PCM 8 audio stream signal.

I have a receiver that allows for internal 7.1/5.1 Audio streams (all of the latest codecs can be decoded and processed) with HDMI output/input connections.

Will I be able to send a 5.1 PCM Audio stream to my AV Receiver and thereby utilizing the full range of audio?

HP/Compaq :: HP DV7-3079wm HDMI Output Underscanned Image
I'm having a problem with HDMI output from my dv7-3079wm to my 37" LG 1080p LCD. When I view the input on my TV, there is a black border around the image (like it is overscanned?). This happens at most resolutions, except for 1360x768, and I would like to watch Blurays in 1080p. So I'm not sure why it is doing this. I also tried this on a 42" Hitachi 720p TV with the same result (all resolutions) so I don't think that it is the TV. I couldn't find any settings in Catalyst Control Center also. My graphics card is an ATi Mobility Radeon 4650.

HP/Compaq :: Dv2000 Broken LCD And Now No Video Output
The LCD on my DV2000 broke last month and since I dont have the money to replaced right away I decided to use it with my 17" lcd monitor for the mean time. After a few days of using it with the external monitor one day I turn it on and got nothing on my external monitor. Since then I having trying to figure out why I am not getting video signal through my VGA or s video.

Now I am afraid there is something worst than just the broken lcd so I am trying to see if there any way I can test it or find out if it still works before I get the replacement LCD. I at least know the there is signal going to the broken lcd since when it turns on the screens light up and turns white.

Is it possible to use a different size lcd from another hp? I have 15.4 lcd from my sister's old compaq will the dv2000 mother board run a bigger screen or will it kill the motherboard?

From gallery, the middle picture at the bottom actually told me that it has HDMI coming with it, that was why I pulled the trigger, but today when I checked with tech spec, it said no.So I went for a live with dell, they told me it had not as well, but I doubt it as CS just sent the tech spec home page and told me it had not

The strange thing is when I go online and check youtube , an unboxing video of New dell inspiron 15 do show it has hdmi output.

Dell :: Inspiron 1720 GPU
I have done a search on this so forgive me if its been addressed already. I found no answers.

I have seen taht a number of Inspiron 1720s have the 8600m GT card in them with 512 mb of memory, while others such as mine have the same card, but with 256mb memory on them.

I'm getting ready to start doing some photoshop work as well as some CAD work. I'm going to start my engineering degree as soon as I finish my current degree. Would this increase in memory help out in what I will be doing?

Will it also help in gaming? I pretty much use this laptop for everything and am trying to learn what I can about it so I fully understand it's capabilities and such.

anyone run a benchmark utility such as Lavalys Everest or Sisoft Sandra or similar to tell me the name of the manufacturer of the Firewire chipset in the Inspiron 1720 please? Not the motherboard or CPU chipset, just the firewire component of the laptop, please.

The benchmark software is free, and they tell you what components are inside your particular computer.

Reason I'm asking is that I have an external firewire soundcard (for professional music recording), and for maximum compatibility the soundcard manufacturer recommends the soundcard only be used with certain firewire chipsets.

Dell :: How To Output 1080i To External TV Via Component Cable From Inspiron E1705
I have Inspiron E1705 with WUXGA (1920x1200) which I want to connect to my rear-projection TV that has only component video inputs.

I've bought this S-Video to Component adapter:
[url]

But when I switch to external monitor (TV) via Fn-F8, the screen switches to 1024x768 (TV starts showing in that resolution too), and there is no way I can raise the resolution.

But I really want HD 1080i !

I know my TV can support it, as I can switch my XBMC to 1080i and TV switches to it.

I tried to play with PowerStrip options, without much luck.

Is there any way to achieve my goal?

I have Windows XP Professional SP2.

Dell :: Inspiron 1720 VS Studio 1747
After putting up with countless BSOD's and failed harddrives on the Inspiron 1720, they send me a refurbished Studio 1747. Bigger hard drive space, HD screen, and twice the ram are very enticing to keep this machine. But the Inspiron's GPU AND CPU processors are faster (compare Intel Core i7 720QM processor and ATI Mobility Radeon 4650 graphics to the dual 2.0GHz centrino duo nvidia geforce 8600m GT). And I also found it silly that they would include an HD screen but not a blue-ray disc reader. So since DELL told me over the warranty phone line that they would "match the specs of your [my] old computer," should I just keep this or run some benchmarks on some games and figure this out? I don't want to spend more time on this if I have to if it is common knowledge that I got a good ad deal.

edit: forgot to add that the studio runs windows 7 64bit and inspiron is running w7 32 bit
