Dell :: E6400 Graphics

Aug 28, 2009

I found a E6400 in my local store that's $1500 (which is way too much) with a NVIDIA Quadro NVS 160M, does that graphics card is the reason why it's so expensive, other than being a C2D P9500 with 4gb ram?


I really don't care about dedicated graphics card, as my current x3100 suffices. And I don't game, expect rarely BF2, which is fine with the x3100

Dell :: BIG Design Flaw In E6400 W/ Nvidia Graphics

Sep 12, 2009

I feel E6400 w/ Nvidia has big design flaw w/ Heat! I had hopes Bios A15 would fix some of it.

Even though I used RMClock to reduce the voltage (it did drop 5-7C), the left side vent of the laptop blows VERY hot air out ALL THE TIME!! My graphic cards on a fresh boot starts at 58C and goes up to 68-70C w/ normal web usage (not even games).

By using Antec Cooler (No choice otherwise, which makes enough fan noise & feels much heavier) + laptop fans noise.. it feels like a desktop, rather than sleek and quiet notebook. Becuase of this fans noise + Heat I don't tend to use my laptop much often. My Dell XPS 720 desktop is much quieter to use. I felt previous D620/D630 were much better when controlling the heat.

Dell Inspiron 7520 :: AMD Switchable Graphics Stuck On Intel HD Graphics 4000

Apr 4, 2013

I have an InspironR Special Edition 7520 and my AMD 7760 2GB will not activate or do any graphics processing. It is stuck on the Intel Graphics. I am running windows 8.

-My laptop is set on high performance and is plugged in.

-I ran NovaBench and it used the intel graphics card

-FurMark detected Intelgraphics as my main graphics card

-I ran a small game called "Slender: The Arrival" on the lowest settings it could barely handle it

-During the game and the graphics run I had Catalyst Control Center Up and it showed 0% usage of the graphics card, indicating it failed to switch

- All the drivers are up to date, per the windows solution and from downloading them from the AMD website.

I would like a solution to either, have the switch start working, or to change a setting so only the graphics card is constantly used. If this does not work I fear I'll have to return the laptop for faulty hardware.

Dell :: Studio 1555 W/4570 GPUlow Desktop Graphics Score But High Gaming Graphics Score From WEI

Dec 17, 2009

Just purchased a 1555 with the radeon 4570 512mb GPU, Windows 7 64-bit, and performance is generally very good apart from one strange result. Windows experience index reports the following -

Processor - 5.7
Memory - 5.8
Graphics - 4.9
Gaming Graphics - 6.3
hard disk - 5.9

So the only low result is the desktop aero graphics performance at 4.9, which seems strange when the 3D businnes/gaming graphics score is 6.3. Other results i've seen posted on forums of the Windows 7 WEI scores are usually the same for desktop graphics and 3D graphics in Windows 7, which I would have expected as I understood that aero uses the GPU similarly to games. If anything, it looked like in most results the desktop graphics scores were slightly higher than the gaming graphics scores.

Does anyone know why I could be getting a lot lower desktop graphics score compared to gaming graphics?

I've checked the graphics drivers are up to date.

Can anybody else post their Windows 7 WEI scores from the 1555 with the 4570 512mb GPU?

Dell :: E6400 On 64 Bit?

Apr 7, 2009

someone said it was better to use 64 bit vs 32 bit for vista and was wondering if this is real? and wat are the benefits of using 64 bit over 32 bit and vise versa? except to utilize all of my 4 gigs of ram.

also the dell rep said their driver support for the 64 bit was not as good as the 32 bit and was wondering if this is true?

and will some games not work on 64 bit or does that not matter?

oh and someone said when you reformat you should reformat in ahci mode, and was wondering how you do that

Dell :: Which E6400 Should I Get...?

Jun 8, 2009

I have a choice between 2 specific E6400's. What I really want is a backlit keyboard and the integrated graphics (battery life is important to me).

The problem is, from the two models available to me, one doesn't have the backlit, while the other has the NVIDIA.

The one with the NVIDIA is $100 more expensive. So the question is, is it possible to either upgrade manually to the backlit keyboard, or downgrade manually to the Intell 4500? How difficult and expensive would either option be?

Dell :: Two E6400

Aug 12, 2009

I installed XP and everything seems ok but the computer doesnt want to suspend. When I click the power button (which is setup for suspend) or try to suspend any other way (like shutting the lid) the system will shut down but will come back online after about a minute or so. It doesnt want to go to sleep! Bad Boy. I have noticed that if I take off the power cord, it will go into suspend and stay there properly. I have tried two different power adapters, so I dont think its adapter-related. Its really annoying to have to totally shut down every time. I've tried disabling settings and hardware in the bios to no avail. I have DCP installed.I want to upgrade my WiFi link card to a wireless-n version. I guess this is the wifi link 5300 card. I actually bought one but its full height (533AN_MMW), so now I have to go an get the half height version (model 5333AN_HMW, right?!). One issue though, I dont know if my laptop has a third antenna cord in there for the third leg of the antennas. Can I add one? I am using a wireless N Dlink router.

Will this one work in my e6400?[url] I'm a little nervous about it because of the "G2" at the end of the model #, and the website says its for the centrino and I have a latitude.

Dell :: E6400 CPU Only 0.85 GHz

May 16, 2009

I bought a new Dell E6400 laptop with Intel P8400 CPU. I tried installed Windows Vista, but the CPU experience index was only 3.0. I tried RMClock utility and it shows only 0.85 Ghz. I think I installed all needed drivers (Chipset driver, System Software etc.) and I set High Performance mode. But still 0.85 GHz. Any ideas how to force it to 2.26Ghz?

Dell :: M1530 Graphics

Mar 2, 2009

I was just wondering if anyone thinks that my graphics (8600GT 256MB GDDR3) in my M1530 is going from the following:

1. Laptop is 8 months old, I use it mainly for gaming and on average over those 8 months I would say I play games for at least 3 hours a day.2 weeks ago I bought Fallotu 3 to play it with mods, thats when these issues turned up which are:After playing for a little while, the graphics went all 'strange', moving in game was impossible, alot of the textures went purple then BSOD. (15 days ago)The game crashed on exit (not unusual if you know FO3 or Oblivion), then BSOD. (8 days ago)Similar to the first one, however the screen went 'speckly' and you could see different parts of the level (as if I had noclip on). I exited the game, but the 'speckles' were still present in Vista, including the shutdown screen. I turned it off and then on again and it was fine then. (Yesterday)Finally, similar to the above with the noclip style look, just no speckles, but I managed to exit the game, shutdown, restart and everything was fine again, infact I played for 4 hours straight after that. (Yesterday)
Unfortunatly I didn't get chance to read the BSOD errors.

Also bare in mind that I have played Fallout 3 for several hours each day since I got the game (16 days ago) without any serious issues (a few CTDs, but thats normal for FO3).

Apart from these issues I have never had a BSOD with this laptop, and very few other crashes that weren't 'understandable'.

So my question is; is this the starts of the NVidia GPU issue? Should I get a replacement or wait for more information?

Dell :: XPS M1710 Graphics

Mar 27, 2009

I know that there are lots threads about various GPU related problems, but somehow I didn't find any information which i would be very interested in. So:

PROBLEM #1: I have dell m1710 (GPU: GeForce Go 7950 GTX; the last time i've cleansed dust lats time about four months ago) for 18 months. Its waranty is expired.

Some time ago, while playing a game which does not require lots of graphics power, the screen covered with color lines and squares (screenshots included). As I closed the program and looked at GPU temperature it was around 66. I've restarted my laptop and at first it didn't boot at all and all startup information and BIOS looked like written in some kind of hieroglyphs.

Now my laptop only boots on safe mode or normal mode but only if resolution is no more than 1280x800. But i think it won't last long until it won't work at all .....

Dell :: Jerky Graphics

Apr 14, 2008

I was hitting 98C, so took my 1710 apart to AS5 my 7950GTX over the weekend.

The temps have dropped a little, but I notice now that no matter which driver I install, I am not getting the in game performance I was getting before, although I am gettting the 3D mark scores. Everything seems "jerky". i.e. its almost as if there is a lot of hard disk catching up if that explains it (I have plenty space free).

COD4 ran a dream before and this is now pretty useless unless I drop it to 1024x768 , but even then its jerky. GOW has gone the same way. This use to run a treat on 1400 * 900, but this is now the same.

The question is....have I broken my card, put to much AS5/too little on, or did the hitting of 98C do some damage! Is this a symptom of pending doom, should I take my lappy apart and redo the AS5..... !

Dell :: Latitude E6400 ATG

Oct 18, 2008

I'm pretty new to Dell notebook world. I was always told that Dell has a stinky customer service and their image wasn't that good around spot but care sharing whats good and bad about dell in general?

1- In the LCD option, it says touchscreen. Does that mean I can somewhat use this laptop like a tablet? ( Without the ability to twist the screen of course..)

2-Never knew whtas the different between 1dimms and 2dimms in RAM....

3-Compare Geforce 9400gs with the Mobile Intel Graphics Media Accelerator X4500HD With PC-Card. Plus, what do they mean by "PC-Card" or "EXpress card" ?

4-Does Dell notebook actually give us 64bits windows or they're all 32bits unless they mention the option of 64bits?

5-Whats the difference between the normal e6400 model and the ATG model? Simply more durability +weight?

6- Whats an encrypted HDD or a ruggedized HDD?

7- I'll be using the notebook for design purpose. Such as photoshop, flash, illustrator or such. I'll be using 2-3 program at once with several picture/projet +internet + music. If my specs are 2.26ghz or 2.4ghz + 4gb ram + intel HD4500HD, will this notebook handle it?.............................

Dell :: E6400 Or E4300?

Mar 19, 2009

I'm in the process of trying to decide between getting an E6400 or E4300 to replace my aging Toshiba A105-4074. I'm somewhat surprised by the lack of discussion here about the E4300 compared with the huge number of threads about the E6400.

I have an E4300 here at work that I have been impressed with, so I have hands-on experience with it. I haven't had any hands-on experience with the E6400, and have only seen one briefly. While I've read lots of good things about it, I wish I could use one for a couple of days in order to get a feel for it .....

Dell :: Is My E6400 Overheating?

May 1, 2009

Just got my E6400 from Dell Outlet today and i noticed it's running noticeably hot.

I've read some of the posts on the nvidia overheating problem so I decided to run the same tests other people did. The screenshot is after running 3DMark2006 on Balanced power setting.

Are those temps ok? I talked to a rep who acknowledged the potential problem with the nvidia chipset and said if i send this to the depot now they can take a look at the mobo, cpu and gpu and have it back to me in less than 10 regular days.

Since I have finals coming up, I'd much rather not send it in unless they offer me onsite or some potential freebies, which the rep refused to. So any suggestion would be much appreciated. Should I run some more tests?

Dell :: About SSD In E6400 Media Bay

for the E6400 media bay (I hope that's what it's called, I'm referring to the location where the optical disk is). I'd like to add a SSD before my trip to overseas and I have a few questions about this:

1) what kind of SSD should I get? I'd like to get a 128GB or 256GB SSD. Is it any 128/256GB SSD or do I need to get a specific kind?

2) If I want the SSD to be the primary drive and a 500GB HD to be the data drive, do I need to put the SSD in where the HD is and then put the 500GB HD in the optical disk caddy tray? (I bought the newmodeus caddy tray)
