Dell :: Dual HDD's In My E1705

Oct 26, 2007

I have seen several sigs with people that have an e1705 with dual HDD's...But I can't seem to find any info on it. I need more HDD space, but I do not want to have to re-install everything on a new one. It would save a lot of hassle.

HP/Compaq :: Dual 3870s, Dual Screened, Quad Core 17in Voodoo

Jan 2, 2009

It sure does look like that Clevo 18in revealed sometime ago.

Quote:

Under the hood of the 17.1-inch Firefly we found a 2.4GHz Intel Core 2 Extreme Quad Core CPU, 4GB of RAM, a pair of ATI Mobility Radeon HD 3870 GPUs running in CrossFire mode, and a 7,200 rpm 250GB hard drive. The Firefly spec sheet said the machine is capable of overclocking, but we didnít touch the BIOS.

And a MultiTouch trackpad, Backlit keyboard (with m15x-esque customizable colours), Creative X-Fi audio and a Dual Hinge like the HDX 20.

Lenovo ThinkPad W Series :: W540 - Dual Monitor Display Resolution With DVI-D Dual Link Cable

May 18, 2014

I have recently purchased a W540 and connected to my Dell u3011 30" monitor. I used the Dual Link DVI-D cable that came with the monitor and plugged it into my Ultra Dock. The maximum resolution i can get is 1920x1080? When i change over to a Display port cable i can achieve the full 2560 x 1600 resolution? Is there something i need to do in addition to achieve the full 2560x1600 resolution with the DVI-D dual link cable? I want to be able to connect 2 laptops to the one monitor and only have 1 display port input so i need to be able to use the DVI cable on the 2nd machine while still achieving 2560x1600 resolution.

Jan 20, 2008

I was considering selling my E1705 before but after some research and input from others I came to the conclusion that I should just stick my my E1705 because the resale value is much lower than I expected (I wanted to sell my machine, get a small laptop for mobility and build a desktop).

So now I want to just upgrade my laptop to the max and maybe just get a shitty eee pc as my 2nd laptop to carry around everywhere.

Where is room to upgrade, things I am considering so far to up is
a T7600 CPU, 4GB 667mhz RAM, 200gb 7200rpm HD, GTX is a maybe... don't know how much difference there will be. How should I change my choices and what else can I upgrade.

Inspiron E1705, Intel Core 2 Duo processor T7200 (4MB/2.00GHz/667MHz)
17 inch UltraSharp TrueLife Wide-screen WUXGA
2GB, DDR2, 667MHz 2 Dimm
256MB NVIDIA GeForce Go 7900 GS
80GB 7200RPM SATA Hard Drive
Microsoft Windows Vista Home Premium Edition
Integrated 10/100 Network Card and Modem
8X DVD+/-RW Drive
Integrated High Definition Audio
Intel PRO/Wireless 3945 802.11a/g Mini Card
80 WHr 9-cell Lithium Ion Primary Battery

Dell :: 4Gb In E1705

Oct 5, 2007

This week I finally made the choice to get 2x2G sticks for my E1705. They arrived today and I installed them as soon as I could.

But unfortunately Windows XP Pro SP2 wouldn't start completely (it froze somewhere in the screen with the logo and the moving bar underneath). Windows does start in dafe mode and reports 3.25G.

The funny thing is, Mac OS X does load completely and run without a problem. I even mentions 4G installed.

I did a quick memtest and the sticks seem to be ok. I changed the order of the sticks and no difference.

Does anyone have experience with this? Is there a setting I need to change on my Windows. Or would I need to reinstall it (doesn't seem logical).

Dell :: E1705 With NMI

Mar 8, 2008

Purchased a e1705 in June of 2006. Started having the NMI parity errors within a month.

Contact Dell and they swapped out memory. The problem seemed to be better, but still linger for a while with the NMI errors. Installed Vista on the system and cant remember ever having an error. Then I installed Counter-strike, and started getting the error back. Recontacted Dell and they replaced the motherboard and ram. That hosed my vista install where printing, control panel, stopped working. Backed up my data and reinstalled after formating the drive Windows XP using the Dell disks I received. Now the system isnted on for more than 5-15 minutes without an NMI error.

Oh, now dell is wanting me to send my laptop to a depot where they can make sure its fixed. I will now be without any laptop, working or not for around 2 weeks.

I have the 4 year extended warranty with accident protection.

Dell :: Anyone Have Dual HDDs In Their XPS 16?

Oct 30, 2009

Looking at the new XPS 1645 since I need a laptop before the new year and since it's pretty much identical to the current XPS 1640 in terms of the body AFAIK,

I was wondering if anyone has replaced the DVD drive with a HDD caddy and have pictures of how it fits? Specifically, I was looking at products from nando4's thread:

DIY: Adding SSD or HDD storage using an optical bay caddy

I believe people said it was possible but I lost the post somewhere in that massive XPS 1645 owner's lounge. The questions I had were:

1) The DVD on XPS 16 should be a 12.7mm SATA and I was wondering what specific HDD caddy was used? From the thread above, this might work .....

Dell :: 6GB Dual Channel Ram (XPS 16)

Apr 14, 2010

The XPS 1645 offers choices of 4, 6, and 8GB of ram. Just out of curiosity, how can 6GB of ram be dual channel? I was under the impression that dual channel requires matching pairs, and that 6GB of ram would be one 4GB stick and one 2GB stick. However, the Alienware laptop seems to have listed what I would expect (3 and 6GB configurations not listed as dual channel).

See below.

[XPS 1645]
4GB Shared Dual Channel DDR3 [Included in Price]
6GB Shared Dual Channel DDR3 [Add $225.00]
8GB Shared Dual Channel DDR3 [Add $375.00]

[Alienware M15x]
3GB DDR3 at 1066MHz [Included in Price]
4GB Dual Channel DDR3 at 1066MHz [Add $50.00]
6GB DDR3 at 1066MHz [Add $200.00]
8GB Dual Channel DDR3 at 1066MHz [Add $350.00]

Dell :: Dual Boot : XP And 7

Feb 5, 2009

I formatted my XPS M1530 using this guide (How to: Step-by-step guide for installing Windows XP on XPS M1530) and everything worked perfect.

But when I rebooted, I realised that the computer booted directly to XP and didn't let me choose between XP and 7. Normal, I thought, so I stuck in the W7 CD and selected the "repair" option. This did the trick very neatly, repairing the W7 install. The only problem was that now it will boot ONLY to W7 and I still have no selection screen for the OS.

Dell :: Dual HDD Bays?

Jun 26, 2009

Looking into getting a Dell XPS series, but can't find any info on having dual HDD bay's.

I really like this feature on my HP, but dollar for dollar Dell has much better hardware out of the box. Some one let me know if any Dell's have this. Probably going to wait till Windows 7 comes out.

Dell :: 630 W/ Dual Monitor

Feb 1, 2010

I am trying to run dual monitors on a d630 with Intel 965 video and the laptop, after reboot, will not hold its settings.

It always wants to revert back the VGA screen as primary and ignores the second DVI monitor.

I have tried undocking and removing the dock profile so it can re-establish it but no success.

Dell :: Trying To Dual-boot Win 7

Jan 14, 2009

I am trying to dual-boot Windows 7 on my XPS M1530 which is currently running Vista Ultimate - BUT I stumbled upon a problem. As I understand it, Vista will only allow you to have 4 partitions and magically I have 4 already.

I reformatted the laptop right after purchasing and no longer have the recovery drive. Here is what Vista says I have:

(1) EISA Configuration - 47mb
(2) C: (Vista) - 179gb
(3) Primary Partition - 4.25gb
(4) Primary Partition - 3gb

Dell :: E1705 Vs. M1710

Feb 17, 2008

So I bought an Inspiron 9400 bout two years ago, its a piece of shi*t ... i've had i dunno about 6 or 7 service calls now .... ANYWAYS

When I went to purchase a laptop I was looking at both the XPS and the laptop I decided on (E1705), and the only thing I noticed that was different was that the XPS was substantially more expensive, and had a different look ...

Not to insult anyone's taste or anything, but the look of the XPS is tacky as hell lol ... I mean, its inundated with the word XPS everywhere (even on the touchpad ... ?), i've never seen one in person ... maybe someone can explain to me haha

Anyways, the purpose of this post isn't about the aesthetic differences between the two series of laptops lol. A friend of mine who is in the market to purchase a laptop has asked me what the differences were ... and I couldnt answer him (hence why i'm posting)

What i'm asking then is, other then its shell, assuming the CPU, GPU, RAM, display are identical what is it that makes the XPS better and at a much higher price? Is the motherboard better, or are XPSes less prone to random breaking? If anyone can differentiate the two for me i'd appreciate it, so I can help my friend out before he drops $2.5k on a laptop

Trying to let the AS5 set right now, hope the temps are lower than the other CPU since it was using one of those cheap cpu pad things.

Next on the upgrade list is the biggest 7200RPM drive that will fit.

Then another 2Gb of RAM for a total of 4Gb!

Dell :: E1705 W/ X1400 No DVI Out?

Nov 30, 2009

I was using a 7900GS in the laptop but that died...(excellent product from dell, dies after about 2 years)
Anyway I was just using it as a HTPC so I don't need gaming graphics.

Anyway, I was outputting fine 720p to my reciever and then TV, after replacing the card (with an X1400) I can't output anything to the recieiver. When I plug it in it says nothing is there?

I've also dried the DVI-hdmi adapter...instead of DVI-hdmi cable which shouldn't make a difference but I gave it a shot....

I tried plugging it in directly to a normal LCD instead of the reciever and still nothing

Sep 23, 2008

An hour ago, I accidentally dropped my Inspiron E1705. The notebook fell from 3ft high and hit the ground on its bottom side (the same position you use the laptop). I tried to turn it on to see if it worked and here's what I found:

The notebook turns on and the battery charges

The hard drive led is blinking like booting

The keyboard works

No beeps

Screen is blank, no video at all, I tried using an external monitor and got the same result

Dell :: CPU And/or GPU Overheating In E1705.

Sep 27, 2009

My laptop has shut down abrubtly twice because of overheating. When I powered the laptop again, it would bring me to that overheating warning prompt with the two nasty beeps and whatnot.

Since I'm running Windows 7 x64, I wasn't able to install i8fangui, but I found a program called SpeedFan (http://www.almico.com/speedfan.php) that I'm running right now.

Here are the current temperature readings for everything:
GPU: 73 C (there's a fire icon next to this. can't imagine that's good)
HD0: 36 C
Core 0: 50 C
Core 1: 50 c
