Dell :: FX2500 Vs 7900GTX

Sep 20, 2007

Well I bought a FX-2500, actually 2, the first had to go back - Dud.

I understand that the FX-2500 and 7900GTX are the same cards, with a different BIOS.

So is there any benfits to flashing the FX-2500 with the 7900GTX BIOS, I am a Gamer, so again my Understanding is the 7900GTX is more orientated for Gaming.

Dell :: Can't Find Any 7900GTX, 7950GTX, FX2500 Or FX3500 On Ebay

Jul 4, 2008

I've been trying to find these cards for a while.. I've been searching for "dell FX3500", "FX3500", "FX3500M", same for the others, etc.

I can't find these cards for my 9400.. There's a lot of 7900Gs, but that's the card I already have!

Are there specific codes for those parts? I know the 7900GS is DG008, but I don't know of any for the cards I want.

Even with Crysis winning the latest "Hog of the Year" award, it does have a decent GPU benchmark tool.

Please post any benches you've accomplished using the Crysis GPU Benchmark. I will post additional FX2500 OC numbers as time permits.

I also have a FX3500 inbound, so I'll update my post with that data as well once installed.

When I click on Hidden Icons, and then Safely Remove Hardware icon, the list of hardware is very slow to appear (but once I select a device, it functions quickly).  Compared to how fast my x200 works, the X201 is very slow.

Dell :: FX2500 Upgrade

Nov 19, 2007

Just got a FX2500 installed in my 1705 and my 3dmark 05 score went from 59xx to 8546 and that's still running stock speeds, cant wait to see what it gets once I push up the clock rate some.

BTW anyone who's on the fence about doing this, its was a very easy install took all of about 20 minutes to do and is a very solid upgrade for the money. Got mine off ebay for $140!

Dell :: Upgrading FX1500 To A FX2500

Aug 27, 2007

I went to upgrade my M90 (currently FX1500) to a FX2500 card, but I think the new card is DOA. What happened was when I installed it and rebooted it showed what looked like blue vertical stitching across the Windows XP loading screen, and then it was blank at the login screen. Also I noticed it was hot when I took it out, when it was only in for 2-3 min.

I have a 7 day return on this E-bay purchase but dont want to waste time in returning it if its just a driver issue.
<O></O>

Is it dead?

Dell :: Fx2500 Flashed To A Fx3500

Sep 1, 2007

I have just installed a fx2500 in my M90 and was wondering if I flash it with the Fx3500 bios would it become a fx3500? It seems from the specs that the only difference is the core/memory speed.

Dell :: FX1500 / FX2500 Cards In A E1705

Aug 31, 2007

Are the FX series cards a direct plug and play card in the E1705/9400 laptop or is a BIOS mod required ?

Seems these cards are selling alot cheaper than the 7900 series cards on Ebay.

Dell :: New 7900gtx, What To O/C With?

Dec 7, 2009

I recently bought a 7900gtx and a new power brick when my 7900gs crapped out in my e1705. My question:

Can I use the same version of the nvflash iso disc that i previously burned to overclock my new 7900gtx? If so do i use the clocks with the "V" in the code

Dell :: FX2500 In An Inspiron 9400/E1705.. Drivers And O/C

Jan 8, 2008

So here we go :

1) I'm ordering in a FX2500 to replace my 7800 go. I'm currently using Extreme-G Mobileforce driver 92.91 (I've tried some of the newer versions but prefer this one). Will this driver be compatible with the FX2500?

2) What are the best drivers for the FX2500 if not Mobileforce?

3) Overclocking... I've read the posts about flashing the 7900GTX bios to enable overclocking, does this mean i cannot overclock using the normal software way. In the Mobileforce drivers for the 7800, the option is in the Advanced Settings options in Windows. Does the FX2500/7950GTX not have this option and is BIOS flashing the only way to overclock the card?

4) If the BIOS flash is to enable voltage adjustments as well as clock adjustments, is this something I need to do or will the card do well with just altered clock speeds?

Dell :: Changing The 7900gtx To 1.32v

Nov 12, 2007

Will changing the voltage on the 7900gtx to 1.32v make any difference?

I noticed a few people here and there have done this.

what would be the benefit?

would it be more stable? or be able to clock higher?

Dell :: Installed My New LCD And 7900GTX

but on the card is said revision A01. In the BIOS, the Video BIOS version is 005.071.022.028.002.000. I wasn't aware they're made 2 revisions of the 7900GTX, is this card still safe to flash with the modified BIOS here?

Dell :: Driver- 9400 & 7900GTX

Nov 6, 2007

Having installed a 7900gtx in my Inspiron 9400, I let Windows Vista download a Microsoft compatibility driver for the card as a temporary measure until I got round to trying out other drivers. I've since tried Nvidia's driver from their website which didn't recognise the hardware; the Dell driver (from the M170 driver section) and the Xtreme-G 163.69 and 162.62 drivers, all of which slowed down the graphics performance of the Aero effects and some caused flickering.

I did not use any special software to remove the drivers - just basic install/uninstall. I've rolled back to the Microsoft driver which works fine within Windows and runs games fine at low settings.

I now have an additional problem in that Corel Paintshop won't start due to a "Driver components mismatch."

What should I do? Has anyone else experienced performance loss with "better" drivers? or could that be down to the presence of the Microsoft driver?

How do I get this thing working with the wonderful performance I should have?

Dell :: Flashing A FX2500m To 7900GTX

Mar 6, 2008

After trying many drivers and having many questions left unanswered, I decided I wanted to try this route to see how it goes.

I was told when I bought my FX2500m that I could flash it with the 7900GTX BIOS since they are both the same card basically.

I'm having problems where I can play some games no problem, and others lock-up after only seconds of play, sifting through 5 drivers (NBF and Xtreme-G) I decided either I have a faulty card or maybe the FX2500m doesn't have a shader or whatever that some of the games I'm testing it with need.

I only have a couple more days to report this card as a DoA so I'm wanting to test all the possibilities before (possibly) shipping it back.

Long story short, can someone give me a link to a 7900GTX BIOS? And give me a quick run-down on how to go about actually doing the flash and backing up my own?

Dell :: 7900GS To 7900GTX Impressions

Jan 19, 2008

Im writing this so that others who are curious about these types of cards can decide if the upgrade is right for them. This installation required me opening the laptop and breaking off a small piece of plastic, which was very easy. I also updated the system BIOS to A09 and acquired the 130 W PSU as this baby draws about 45W of power itself compared to the 20 the GS requires.

When I originally bought the GS I knew it was a good card. It still is. I got this card because I felt the upgrade would be more cost effective then rebuilding my old desktop PC. All I can say is that where the GTX shines is where the GS shows its weak spots. The GTX can really handle higher resolutions really well as well as keep the frame rate fairly smooth.

For my temps, since I AS5'd it, runs at about 45 idle and 75 peak which is fairly good considering all thats going on.

The biggest jump was in STALKER which quite honestly the GS really had trouble with. Im happy to report the GTX can max out this engine fairly well with little to no choppiness.

Well shoot, what are we waiting for lets see some pics and results.

7900GS specs

7900GTX specs

Bioshock- All Mazed out- no Vsync- 1920x1200 20-30FPS

Gears of War- All Maxed out- No Vsync- 20-30FPS

Stalker- All Maxed out- 1600x1200- Smooth 30-45FPS

In conclusion, the GTX stomps all over the GS in higher resolutions and with the extra clock and memory speed it can easily outperform the GS in almost every aspect. It should be noted these are stock speeds and OC'ing would result in hopefully even better performance.

Dell :: E1705 Cannot Upgrade To 7900GTX

Jan 24, 2008

After reading a ton about upgrading my e1705 to a 7900GTX (actually, an FX2500M), I went ahead and bought one on eBay. To my horror, the card doesn't fit.

I snapped off the little plastic parts that keep the left heatpipe from fitting; that isn't the problem. The problem is that Dell seems to have modified the motherboard to prevent such installations (my e1705 is a fairly recent one). At the top portion of the video card, there's a connector that matches a connector on the motherboard underneath. That motherboard connector is too high, which prevents the video card from inserting into its PCI Express socket. In addition, the videocard post on the upper right (where the screw would insert into the thread) is missing. That part isn't so important, but that damn connector definitely is.

1) Has anyone seen this before, on a newer model e1705?

2) The connector appears to be soldered on, so I'm not sure I could remove it even if I wanted to. Does anyone know if I *can* remove it, and if so, how? What is this connector used for? I assume it's some sort of SLI connector, since it has a matching one on the videocard itself?

Pictures will be provided upon request. I'm pretty bummed, as it appears I'm screwed. I'm also steamed at Dell, which has evidently modified their motherboards to prevent cheapskate upgrading.

Dell :: Driver (7900GTX/FX2500m)

Mar 5, 2008

what is the best (best performance/most stable) driver out there for a FX2500m? Haven't heard much mention of the XTreme-G drivers on these forums, so I was just curious.

I found the thread here...

and the website here...

But my thead still stands, between those tested, what do you think?

Dell :: Bad Flash On Inspiron 6400

Jan 2, 2009

The thing is that my aunt started downloading updates and things from Dell (as she told me,

I wasn't there) and in one of those updates, there was the bios, she updated the system, and then it never came back to life...,

so I was wandering if there is a recovery method with a usb floppy drive (I have one),

since I've tried the Windows Key + F and Fn + F with no avail, is there other option, other than replacing the motherboard? (I live in Chile, and here all computer related things are very expensive... and I don't have credit card to order overseas )

Dell :: XPS M1730 BIOS Update / Flash

Feb 6, 2009

I have a Dell XPS M1730 with a BIOS revision of A03--the latest revision available on the Dell Drivers & Downloads page is A10.

My dilemma is that I am not sure if it is safe to skip the revisions A06 and A09 and just go straight for revision A10.

Also, is revision A10 any better than A09 or A06? Please, I really need somebody's advice on this matter.
Reasons for this BIOS update:

* Upgrading to two 250GB Momentus hard drives and run them under RAID 0.

* Planning on dual-booting Windows Vista 32-bit and Vista 64-bit (need help on this one as well, but let's just focus on the current matter) .....

Dell :: Geforce Go 7900GS Reads As 7900GT/GTO After Flash

Apr 11, 2008

just bought a new 7900gs for my lappy, e1705 and flashed it with the gtx bios so as to create the gsx.

however decided to change it back to the gs original bios but whenever i try to install drivers after flashing it, windows will always read my card as the 7900GT/GTO

It's kinda irritating because whenever i close the laptop lid, it wouldn't shut off and usually my temp readings are higher then normal - around 45-55.

Before when i used the original 7900gtx bios flash it would normally be around 37-45..

i tried to work around this problem by manually "having disk" when windows asks me to choose which driver to install and i chose the 7900gs however since they're like 5-6 7900GS GO drivers, i just choose randomly and it works to some degree; the monitor shuts off when i close it

yet i still have some display problems like the windows of each page moving slowly or very choppily when i move them..

anyone know anything i can do? to like.. revert back to my original bios settings? i did save the original bios but it just doesn't work, windows always sees my card as a 7900GT/GTO

Dell :: 7900gs Flash Worked But Clocks Still Resetting

Feb 5, 2008

I did the nvflash 79XXXXX.rom command and it asked me if I wanted to accept, I pressed "y" for yes, and it said it was successful.

So I load up windows and install coolbits and atitool, I got a steady clock at 640/1250, obviously I didnt want to keep it that high, but I benched with it and it did great, +2000 points on my 3dmark05 score. 8500!

I then changed the clocks to 450/1100 which is where I was going to keep it for everyday use, I clicked apply and went back in to verify and they were still there.

I reset my laptop and came back online the clocks were set to default.

What did I do wrong? on the newer nvidia control console it doesnt have the "apply settings upon startup" option.

i am using the 169.04 drivers so these drivers are correct(I read the newer ones do not allow the overclocking).
