Dell :: XPS 2 Northbridge Heatsink: E1705

Feb 27, 2008

I'm buying either a FX2500m or 7900GTX so I'll need the heatsink to complete the mod of course.

Is there anyway to tell if I already have the heatsink without dismantling my laptop and peeking inside? (I know if I have a dual-pipe card I'd of course have it, just wondering if there was a way to assume). I have a 7800GS in this thing so I'm not 100% sure if it's a single pipe with no heatsink or a dual pipe with a heatsink.

So I just wanted some opinions on if it was safe to assume that I need the heatsink. (I would rather only dismantle the laptop once, when I'm putting the heatsink and card into it, figured some people who have opened them up a few times would know if I'm more likely to have a single pipe or dual).

Dell :: E1705 Problems With MB, Speakers, Lcd Screen, Heatsink

Jan 22, 2008

I currently have a laptop that's going to be replaced. It's the E1705 with the 1.83ghz and ati x1400 video card. I've had numerous problems with it (MB, speakers, lcd screen, heatsink) and dell is granting me a replacement. Being that I only have the ATI x1400, I guess I don't have too much leverage in negotiations.

I asked the Tech rep what laptop I would be getting and he responded with, "Are you looking for a better laptop?" I didn't want to sound too greedy so I just replied "I just one with a DVI port" lol. Then, he replied with no problem. Then I got the classic response: "You'll get one that is most likely similar components or better." Did I act incorrectly by not being greedy. Should I have said "Yes, I want a better laptop!!"

Also, if I insist that a DVI port is basically required and one of the main reasons why I got the E1705 in the first place, what other laptop options could they try and replace me with? One of the reasons I said I insist on it having DVI is because the current model E1720 does not have a dvi port. I'm actually hoping for the Dell M1710 or M1730

Dell :: Put A 7800 Go GTX In A 9400/E1705?

Jun 21, 2009

A friend of mine has a Inspiron E1705 with a now-dead 7900M GTX. I was wondering if it is possible to put a 7800 Go GTX in it?

I could do a little upgrade for myself by buying his video-card-less notebook and putting my 9300's 7800Go GTX in

Dell :: Are Replacing My 9400 (e1705) With A 1720

Jan 25, 2008

I have a high end speced Inspiron 9400:

2.13 core 2 duo, 2gig ram, 100gig 7200 rpm hd, 1920x1600 true life screen, 7800go gfx which I purchased in June 2006. I am in the UK so this cost me 1100 from the Dell outlet.

During December 2007 it has had 4 service calls where the motherboard, graphics card, and lcd have been changed 4 times with the same fault occurring (lines on lcd).

Dell have kindly agreed at my request to swap the laptop for a new 9400, but as the 9400 is no longer in production Dell said they will give me a similar spec 1720 instead, which was nice of them and I agreed. Here is the spec for the 1720:

2.2gig cpu, 2gig ram, 160 5400rpm hd, 8600 gfx, 1920x1600 lcd.

All seemed fine but slower hd which I can live with (just about).

I then started doing some research and discovered the 8600 is slower than the 7800 I had? and the laptop has no DVI port! I used to connect the 9400 to my external montior and sometimes my HD TV using the DVI and will miss it dearly on the 1720.

Would it be unreasonable for me to ask for a higher spec machine over the 1720?

Starting with 1 Gig Single DDR @ 533 Mhz, then 2 x 1 GB @ 533 in Dual Channel

Then I mixed a 2 GB @ 667 mhz with the 1 GB @ 533 Mhz

Last the 2 x 2 GB Memory @ 667.

I ran Super Pi on each config, Sandra Memory Benchmarks, and 3DMark06.

Did not see any Difference in the 3DMark Tests.

My friend just told me he heard this was true. Can anyone confirm? I know there are 2 different brands of LCDs floating around in the E1705/9400. A Samsung model, and a Phillips. However he claimed that the M1710 used one different than the E1705/9400, and was a blazing 30% brighter.

Dell :: New DVD Drive Won't Detect/read 9400/E1705

I have a Dell 17inch E1705/9400 notebook and Vista home. I recently purchased a [url]Samsung DVD burner. I replaced the stock one, and once I turned the computer on the OS does not detect the new drive at all .

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 :: Running Windows 7 On Inspiron 9400/e1705

Dec 21, 2009

I ran Win7's Upgrade Advisor and got a couple flags on Inspiron 9400's hardware. But I've heard that people have nstalled Win7 on them (with mixed results).

A couple reports on graphics malfunctions, and someone said the Sigmatel drivers were not found.

I wouldn't bother, but I have a couple development projects that require Win7.

Wondering if anyone has had good luck with Win7, and whether there are certain things to watch out for. All drivers work OK? Did you install 32-bit or 64-bit?

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 :: 9400 / E1705 Mobo Replacement With Onboard Video

Nov 30, 2009

My 7950GTX failed and all replacement cards I've seen on Ebay, from the X1400, 7900GS or better are overpriced.

Since I won't be gaming with my laptop anymore, I was thinking of replacing my motherboard with the one with integrated onboard video, which is more cost effective.

Do you know if it fits, meaning will my current LCD connector fits this motherboard ? Should I expect a bad surprise?

Dell :: Inspiron E1705/9400 BIOS Update This Month

Dec 5, 2009

It's been over two years since the last update, but Dell finally released a patch for the faulty nVidia graphics chips to help delay failure. That's the only fix listed in the A10 release. I wanted to let everyone know that if you have an nVidia graphics card in your E1705 or any other laptop from 2006-2008 you should check for the latest BIOS update because these cards have faulty thermal design that causes overheating and failure. The symptoms are odd colored pixels, video flickering, rebooting and system crashes, program crashes, odd lines on screen, etc - once you start to exerience this it's already too late, your chip is damaged and needs to be replaced. Likely, at this point, every system out there is probably already experiencing some form of failure so to be safe, if you're still under warranty, I'd use it to get a new card as soon as you can and apply this BIOS update. Anyway, you can find the BIOS update here:

Dell :: Explain Technical Details Of E1705/9400 NVidia Card Options?

Dec 24, 2007

Could a few technologists in the know give me a detailed rundown on the primary differences between the three nVidia card options for the E1705/9400?

I quickly replaced my original X1400 with a dual pipe 7900GS but I am now interested in either moving up to a 7900GTX or a 7950GTX. I know I will also need to upgrade to the 130W or 150W PS as well.

I am looking for comparison information regarding memory, clockspeeds, pipeline counts, pixel/vertex units, pixel/fill rates, processing bandwidth, etc.

I am also curious about a good source for the purchase of any of these items. I have found one posting on eBay for a 7950GTX. I am interested to know if I can purchase directly from Dell, or save a few bucks by purchasing from eBay or a forum member. I also know I have read that there are equivalent Quadro (sp?) cards which will work in my machine. Are there any disadvantages to taking this route?

I know I could dig through a thousand plus posts on the topics and find all of the information I want, but I also know how much you guys thrive on expressing your technical expertise on subjects such as this ..........................

Dell :: Heatsink Replacement...

Feb 9, 2009

Have finally got Dell to agree to replace my motherboard (my 3rd in 18 months), but they say I also need a new heatsink/fan to fix my overheating GPU problems (100 degrees + under load).

They are doing the motherboard under warranty, but refusing to pay for the heatsink. According to them, the two issues are not connected...

My question is, is there any point having the heatsink replaced if it's just going to be the same defective component?

Dell :: Vostro 1400 -- New Heatsink

Feb 18, 2010

I should have said microprocessing cooling unit, not heatsink!

My Dell Vostro 1400 laptop has been running hotter with age (it's two years old). About 5 minutes after startup the core temp hits 50-60C, the fan kicks in, the core goes down to 30C, the fan kicks off. This cycle occurs about every 5 minutes or so. I've cleaned the fan area thoroughly and am using i8kfanGUI. I'm wondering if replacing the microprocessing cooling unit will help keep the core temp down. They're pretty cheap, about 15 on eBay. Here's what I'm looking at:

What do you guys think? Will a new microprocessing cooling unit make a significant difference in keeping down my core temp?

Dell :: Heatsink Mod M1330 XPS By BlackRussian

Jun 24, 2009

Above the two types of cooling units with standard heatsinks of the M1330 XPS

M1330 XPS Heatsink Mod by BlackRussian.

This mod is to provide a better cooling system on my Dell M1330 XPS laptops which already has a cooper plate on video chip.
The main mod is concentrated around the nVidia video chip, the CPU will be done at a later date for all you overclockers out there!

3x Aluminum Heatsink. I use a heatsink taken from an old desktop PC motherboard and cut/file to size.(Chipset or Video card)
1x L 38mm x H 6mm x D 11mm for the bigger heatsink and 1x L 38mm x H 6mm x D 8mm for smaller heatsink.
1x Thermal paste (AS5 etc to your fancy)
1x Thermal adhesive kit (Aritic SilverThermal adhesive) Warning! See foot note below.
1x Copper plate.
Cleaning agents (Pure alcohol or something like Aceton) , cotton face wipe..
1x Junior hacksaw
Set of flat files
Clean work area.
Oven. (Preheat on high temp 5mins before placing cooling unit inside oven)
Set of screwdrivers size #0 and #00 Philips or Pozidriv
Optional tools. 2 mini G clamps

Thermal adhesive Do not use this product on your CPU or Video chip as it will bond to it and you will not be able to remove the thermal adhesive once it set's on the chips without damaging the chips.

Measurements had been taken with the cooling unit still in place and allowing enough space from Ram cards & base plate inner edge for removing the final cooling unit. See
All done and back in my M1330 XPS laptop photo.
Once you have your heatsinks cut/filed and cleaned to the right size maximum height 7mm (5.5mm should be used to be on the safe side otherwise final adjustment with a flat file will correct any over high problem) we need to open up our laptop.

Before under going any services to your laptop make sure that you ground yourself or be very careful of static change while workings on your Laptop refer to your handbook or service manual.....................

Dell :: M1530 Differences In Parts (especially Heatsink)

Oct 9, 2008

I received a new M1530 because the one I received have a couple of cosmetic flaws that were due to poor worksmanship (dents, scratches, etc.). I've been playing and comparing these two M1530's and I've noticed several things. My old M1530 came with the Optiarc DVD+/-RW drive and the new M1530 came with a Matsh1ta DVD+/-RW drive. I know a lot of people have complained about the DVD drive being noisy. Well.. the Matsh1ta drive is quiet! The Optiarc drive is super noisy. On to more things.. The old M1530 came with a Samsung 5400rpm 250GB harddrive, the new M1530 came with a WD 5400rpm 250GB hardrive.

None of that matters though because it has been replaced by a Seagate 7200rpm 320GB hardrive, and stuck the WD 5400rpm 250GB into my PS3.

OLD M1530:
Optiarc DVD+/-RW drive (SUPER NOISY)
Samsung 5400rpm 250GB harddrive
MADE IN CHINA 6-Cell battery
Cheaper Heatsink Assembly (Metal alloy transfer surfaces)

NEW M1530:
Matsh1ta DVD+/-RW drive (PRETTY QUIET)
WD 5400rpm 250GB hardrive
MADE IN JAPAN 6-Cell batter
Better Heatsink Assembly (Copper transfer surfaces)

The heatsink assembly is a big deal because we all know these things can get pretty hot, and we all know that copper has very good heat transfer properties. On the old M1530, the transfer surface is copper ONLY FOR THE CPU, leaving the GPU and Chipset with some metal alloy. Well the new M1530 I received have copper for all the transfer surfaces! COPPER IS BETTER!
