Dell :: Inspiron 1520: Upgrading Cpu From T5450-T7500 Change Gaming Perfomance- Has 8600m Gt

Sep 23, 2009

Just like the title said, will upgrading my cpu from the T5450(1.66ghz) to a T7500(2.2ghz) change my gaming performance or is the T5450 enough power to fully run my videocard.

I OC my videocard by 30% so the clocks are 617.5Mhz/520Mhz instead of 475/400mhz, does the ocing get bottle necked by the weak cpu?

Is it worth the $100 to upgrade my cpu or should i just save the money and buy a new laptop because my 1520 is almost 2 years old but it's a very good laptop, i can get 4700 and sometimes even 4850 on 3dmark06.

Dell :: Upgrading Inspiron 1520 RAM From 2gb To...?

Feb 23, 2009

Me and my sister have 2x 1520's and I'm looking to upgrade my RAM. Both laptops have 2gb of RAM and still contain the original build from Dell.

I have a few questions...

1. They're both running Vista Home Premium -- what's the most RAM it can handle?
2. Do they contain 2x 1gb sticks, or 1x 2gb stick?

I know there's tons of different RAM available, so could someone please link me to a 2gb stick that'll fit and work in my laptop? The cheaper the better, but ideally with a decent warrenty and from a respected company if possible.

Dell :: Inspiron 1520: Change Heatsink, Fan, Or Buy Notebook Cooler

Nov 29, 2008

I spoke with a Dell technician and they told me that the reason my computer was randomly shutting off was because it was overheating and that I needed to replace my heatsink and fan, each costing around $12. I was wondering if buying a notebook cooler might be a better way to go. Any notebook coolers that anyone recommends?

Finally, does anyone know what a technician would charge to replace a heatsink and fan?

I downloaded a program called speedfan and it gives me the following temperatures on my notebook:

HD0: 45C
Temp1: 84C
Core0: 63C
Core1: 63C

Core temperatures moved up while computer was put to heavier use if it makes any difference:

Core 0: 76C
Core 1: 74C

Anyone know if this is normal? Computer isn't working too hard right now.

Dell :: Will Upgrading My Inspiron 1520 From Vista To Windows 7 Void My Warranty?

Mar 10, 2010

Just as the title states. Dell has not given me a straight answer. When I asked in their support they said and I quote.

"We do offer upgrade packages, for windows 7 if you would like to do that it is very easy to do. I can help you with that now"

However He didn't answer my question after asking twice he gave me similar replies.

I have Hardware warranty and currently my pc is having a few hardware issues.

Would It void my warranty if I send it in with windows 7?

Dell :: Upgrading Hard Disk On Inspiron 1520 Running Vista

Jan 6, 2009

I am replacing the installed Seagate Momentus 160 gb 5400 SATA disk with a Seagate Momentus 320gb 7200rpm SATA hard disk as I need the extra space to hold my growing itunes collection and feel the extra speed would also be welcome.

I have the original Dell installation disks (Operating System, drivers etc), the installation disks for the subsequently installed software (other than the freebies including iTunes etc available on the net) and have backed up all my critical data to an external hard drive using the vista backup facility for subsequent restoration once all the software has been installed.

I will of course keep the 160 gb drive available with all it's data intact as a secondary safeguard until I have satisfactorily completed the installation and testing of the new disk.

Acer :: Upgrading 5920g GPU To Hd 4650 From 8600m GT

Jun 21, 2009

I have purchased a mobility hd 4650 from an Acer spare parts source and intend to replace my 8600m GT with it.

The order has been shipped and will hopefully arrive within 2 weeks.

Based on this thread (5920G Upgraded To...Radeon HD 4650?!) I should be able to simply install the card physically (I've disassembled this laptop for a processor upgrade before) and then just throw on the drivers (the device comes with the Acer vBIOS preloaded)..................................

Dell :: Upgrading 1520

Nov 15, 2008

I was thinking of trying to upgrade a couple of parts of my Dell 1520, namely the hard drive and cpu (i've been told the 8600M GT is the best graphics card the 1520 can handle?).

Now I don't have a clue about what processors I'm able to upgrade to whatsoever, so if anyone can stear me in the right direction that would be fantastic. My current Dell 1520 uses an Intel Core 2 Duo T7250 @ 2.0GHz if that helps at all?

As for the hard drive, is the "Western Digital 320GB 2.5" Hard Drive Scorpio Black SATAII 7200rpm" drive compatible? I think the 1520 uses SATA right?

Dell :: Is There Anything Other Than Gaming That The GPU Does That Would Make Me Consider Upgrading

Sep 17, 2007

I ordered my 9400 with an ATI X1400 and now that I see from reading this forum that it is considered a pretty lame GPU I was wondering:

Since I don't play games on my laptop (except Civ4, which runs fine) should I even care that my GPU sucks. Is there anything other than gaming that the GPU does that would make me consider upgrading. I have a 2GHz CPU and 2 gigs of ram and I'm really quite impressed with my first laptop. I'm just one of those idiots who gets jealous when he notices that his "toy" has an inferior component in it.

Dell :: 2007 M1330 W/T7500 => T9300 Upgradable

Oct 19, 2009

I just wanted to double-check if it's possible to drop in a Santa Rosa "refresh" into an older M1300 (Nov. 2007, std. SantaRosa w/ T7500, latest BIOS) and if it makes sense to...

I can buy a "boxed" T9300 for about 300, which does not exactly translate into a cheap upgrade so before I do so, I'd like to know if anyone's done it and if the performance boost is worth it...

Both processors are ~35W...

Dell :: Inspiron 1520 Fan

Oct 9, 2009

Recently my fan has been making a lot of noise whenever it starts up.

Sometimes it sounds like it's getting caught on something as it spins and it trips for a few seconds. Other times it makes a high pitched, not particularly loud but noticeable, noise,

or it'll sound like it's blowing out a lot of air, usually more then it really is. It's also made a sort clicking sound before, similar to the noises a processor on a normal computer might make when loading or booting or something, but I know it's for sure coming from the fan

Dell :: My Inspiron 1520 Needs Some TLC

Sep 5, 2009

First of all I wanna say that I'm a new member on this site. I've checked it out a few times and it seems that people get good help and tips so I decided to register too.

Anyway I bought an inspiron 1520 right about 2 years ago. It's my first laptop and I havent had any troubles with it whatsoever and it's been surving me great.

However 2 years of wear and tear have taken its toll on the outside plastic cover of the computer. One of the corners is cracked (the one to the right of the volume and play/pause buttons) the metal part is a bit bent but it's nothing serious .......

Dell :: Inspiron 1520 Tv-out

Jan 21, 2009

I have an Inspiron 1520 with a GeForce 8600M GT graphics card.
I spilled some coke on it some time ago, and had to replace the keyboard, and also the media buttons don't work really well, so I purchased a new palmrest.

My problem is, that the TV-Out doesn't work anymore... although...it does work, in the way that I can figure out some image on the TV, but it's all black&white and flickering. Also, when Windows boots up, I can't see the "Welcome" screen, it's just black,

and suddenly the desktop appears with all the loading apps. It's 100% TV-Out related, because I recently reinstalled Windows, and it went just fine until I tried again the tv-out (which still did not work).

Dell :: Inspiron 1520 Won't Charge

Dell :: Inspiron 1520 Won't Boot At All

Jan 24, 2010

I just uploaded this video of my problem, you should be able to stream it, if anyone has any problems then let me know. And sorry for the quality, I only have a camera phone to hand, you should be able to see what happens anyway...hopefully

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z3dvfv8mT0E

Basically what happens is, I press the power on button of my machine, everything appears to be normal, the power LED turns on, the Hard drive activity LED flickers on and the DVD drive "clicks" (im sure some Dell owners know what I mean by this) BUT then all the lights go out (besides the power) and nothing is shown on my screen, no BIOS loading, nothing.

Does anyone know what might cause this?

I tried yesterday to get it to work but after about 7 hours I just gave up, nothing I did changed anything (I thought the CPU/GPU may of come unattached from the motherboard but after reseating them the problem was still there

Dell :: Inspiron 1520 Screen

Apr 28, 2009

can't see a thing on the screen. He left the laptop on hibernate for around 3 hours and when he came back, the screen was very dark.

He says he's restarted several times since then and the only thing which seemed to "light up" the screen was taking the power out; allowing the laptop to run on battery. However, just 5 minutes ago, even though the laptop was on battery, the screen has gone dark. He can barely make out MSN conversations by shining his lamp onto the screen but he can't see the mouse cursor.

The laptop is around 1 and a half years old.
