Dell :: Inspiron 1720 Temperature Query

Mar 2, 2009

I have a bit of a query in regards to the temperature of the Inspiron 1720 (Specs in sig) especially when under heavy loads, e.g. Gaming.

The laptop is designed for gaming as far as I know due to it containing a rather powerful graphics card (Nvidia 8600M GT), however when playing a game such as Left 4 Dead I have seen the temperature of the CPU peak at 91 Degrees..

I was just wondering if this is normal as I've heard reports that high temperatures going up and over 100 degrees would most certainly degrade the internal components...

Dell :: Inspiron 1720 GPU

Apr 21, 2009

I have done a search on this so forgive me if its been addressed already. I found no answers.

I have seen taht a number of Inspiron 1720s have the 8600m GT card in them with 512 mb of memory, while others such as mine have the same card, but with 256mb memory on them.

I'm getting ready to start doing some photoshop work as well as some CAD work. I'm going to start my engineering degree as soon as I finish my current degree. Would this increase in memory help out in what I will be doing?

Will it also help in gaming? I pretty much use this laptop for everything and am trying to learn what I can about it so I fully understand it's capabilities and such.

Dell :: Inspiron 1720

Mar 30, 2009

I am stuck looking at a black screen. Also, when closing the lid I am unable to open the lid and restore my previous session.

Although I am not sure if this is directly related but it seems to only deter me from restoring the session if the computer has been plugged in, otherwise the laptop comes back exactly as it was.

I have tried reinstalling the video driver twice, both times doing a complete clear and removing all registries tied to them

Dell :: Component On The Inspiron 1720

Jul 16, 2007

anyone run a benchmark utility such as Lavalys Everest or Sisoft Sandra or similar to tell me the name of the manufacturer of the Firewire chipset in the Inspiron 1720 please? Not the motherboard or CPU chipset, just the firewire component of the laptop, please.

The benchmark software is free, and they tell you what components are inside your particular computer.

Reason I'm asking is that I have an external firewire soundcard (for professional music recording), and for maximum compatibility the soundcard manufacturer recommends the soundcard only be used with certain firewire chipsets.

Dell :: Inspiron 1720 With 6GB RAM Tested

Oct 1, 2008

The set up are as follows:

T9300
8600M GT
320GB 7200rpm x2 (640GB)
6GB RAM
(4GB G.Skill and 2GB Kingston memory) both PC2-5300 @ 5-5-5-15
Ultimate 64
1920x1200
A09 BIOS

Purchase of RAM

The 4GB RAM Module is purchased from newegg. Unfortunately, newegg doesn't ship products to Singapore, so I had to use Vpost (Vpost gave a US address and everything)... Then Vpost will ship it to Singapore.

This is a follow up thread from Does the Inspiron 1520 Support 8Gigs and How to upgrade your M1530 to 6GB of RAM

Installation procedure:
As usual, I only installed the RAM on DIMM A. I have not tested it on DIMM B, not too sure if it works or even to the extent of the BIOS or mobo detecting it.

UPDATED (Friday, Oct 3, 2008; 11:52am): DIMM B also works. See this screenshot for details.


I got myself a black keyboard. Just ignore it. No, it's not an Inspiron E1705 people. My friend from the UK (Migrated here, now living in Singapore) didn't want his Vostro 1700 anymore, so for no reason, he gave me the keyboard.

As usual, open the hinge cover and gain access to the DIMM A RAM underneath the keyboard. Instructions can be found here: [url]

Make sure you slot it properly into the slot...

Once fixed, especially the keyboard and hinge, boot into your BIOS to double check it. Here, it is written as 6142MB.

Also, make sure you're using the latest A09 BIOS released from Dell.

Testing

Things just don't stop here. Just because it "sees" or, "detects" 6GB of RAM, doesn't necessarily mean we can assume that the 6GB will be utilized because, it is widely stated that the 1720 cannot support more than 4GB of RAM, and so as most Santa Rosa machines. The same goes for the others. Here, I did some interesting "Mythbusters" style tests... I got lots of drawings and graphics that I do everyday, like 3DS Max and all those workstation stuff. But specifically, I am going to launch 2 of the most vicious RAM eaters out there. They're non other than Photoshop and Corel PhotoPaint.

Tuesday 8 Oct 2008 11:17am UPDATE: VMWare Workstation v6.5 will be tested!! This will really help to see if there's a performance boost with 6GB RAM installed, and be utilized..............................

Dell :: My Inspiron 1720 Doesn't Like Me :-(

May 8, 2010

So I've had the laptop since Aug 2007, works great, specs in sig. Only have one problem with it. the laptop likes to punish me. It shocks me. Literally shocks me. I think it's where the paint as worn off on the base. Around the corners, the bottom, ect. If I have it on my lap I need to make sure I don't wear shorts. I can feel a slight amount of electricity sting my legs, or forearms. It's a slight stinging sensation. Anyone else experience this? It's been going on for a little while. I thinking the only fix would be to A) repaint it or B) get a new base for it. Don't really want to repaint it as it might look crappy. Other than HDD issues from time to time, I've never had a problem with it and it's still my main computer.

Anyone else encounter this? Could it be that I have a pinched wire thats exposed and making contact with the base? If any, I think it would be the monitor wires, I seem to recall them being nicked and exposed.

Dell :: Battery Query

Dec 27, 2008

I've been given an Inspiron 1525 for crimbo and the person who has given me the laptop has charged it initially for about 2 hours. As far as I was aware, the battery should be charged for around 16 hours initially and as a result, our brand new battery lasts just under 2 hours.

Is there a way to delete the battery memory or something so that I can start the battery again and charge it correctly ?

Dell :: Inspiron GPU Versus CPU Temperature & Video Card

Apr 9, 2009

Ok I have a question that has me a bit confused. I have an inspiron e1505/6400 that has the ati x1400 video card in it.

Now when I recently tore down the laptop I noticed the the heat sink goes over the CPU and another element which everyone says is the GPU. The cpu had thermal grey gunk and the gpu had a purple thermal pad on it.

My question is, if I have the ati card isn't that my gpu? Didn't make sense that the intel 945 board has a gpu if there is already a video card handling graphics.

Also is there anyway to monitor the temperature of the GPU? All the applications I have tried are just showing me cpu temperature and not gpu.

Dell :: Inspiron 9300. Bad Temperature Can Mobo Be Fixed

Oct 21, 2007

I have an Inspiron 9300 that recently started having 100% CPU usage all of the time. After a lot of wild goose chases, the reason turns out to be that 3 out of 4 of its temperature sensors (CPU, Video, and soDimm) think that it is 255 degrees C inside the unit.

Error Code 3900-0626
Msg: Temperature Sensor out of range, temp=255C, min=10C, max=100C

As a result, the CPU steps down to preserve itself. I get perhaps 250MHz core speed rather than the 1.6 GHz the unit is rated for.

In any event, all other hardware diagnostics are fine, the machine runs ok (though very slow), and is otherwise healthy.

The Dell guys say that I need a new Motherboard, but I was wondering the following?

1) Whether the thermistors can be replaced by a shop that does motherboard repair
2) If getting an XPS Gen 2 mobo is worth a try. Would I still have to get new batteries, bios, etc if I planned to keep my existing graphics card? Can I do it without spending too much more money now that I would have to spend anyway on a stock mobo?

Dell :: Inspiron 1720 VS Studio 1747

May 25, 2010

After putting up with countless BSOD's and failed harddrives on the Inspiron 1720, they send me a refurbished Studio 1747. Bigger hard drive space, HD screen, and twice the ram are very enticing to keep this machine. But the Inspiron's GPU AND CPU processors are faster (compare Intel Core i7 720QM processor and ATI Mobility Radeon 4650 graphics to the dual 2.0GHz centrino duo nvidia geforce 8600m GT). And I also found it silly that they would include an HD screen but not a blue-ray disc reader. So since DELL told me over the warranty phone line that they would "match the specs of your [my] old computer," should I just keep this or run some benchmarks on some games and figure this out? I don't want to spend more time on this if I have to if it is common knowledge that I got a good ad deal.

edit: forgot to add that the studio runs windows 7 64bit and inspiron is running w7 32 bit

Dell :: Inspiron 1720 Running Extremely Hot

Sep 20, 2009

lately my Inspiron 1720 has been running crazy hot, and overheating (actually shutting down) while playing games (specifically Sacred 2).

For example right now I am only running Firefox and HWMonitor, and here is an excerpt from the HWMonitor report:

Intel Mobile Core 2 Duo T5750 hardware monitor

Temperature sensor 070░C (157░F) [0xF] (core #0)
Temperature sensor 175░C (166░F) [0xA] (core #1)

In fact shortly after saving that report, my computer actually shut down from heat. I have since restarted it and it is currently running at a roughly constant 52C.

The CPU gets into the 70s and overheats a lot when playing Sacred 2. However, strangely even after closing that game the temperature doesn't come down, such as what happened above .....

Dell :: Inspiron 1720 And Windows 7 64 Bit. Drivers

Dell :: Inspiron 1720, BSoD After Installing 4GB RAM

Dec 14, 2008

I purchased CT699854 4GB kit (2GBx2), 200-pin SODIMM from Crucial.com for my Dell Inspiron 1720 laptop. The machine already had 2GB in two 1GB chips for both slots.

When I installed the new chips, Windows Vista Home Premium refused to boot. BIOS recognized the new RAM without problems, but when Windows started to load I immediately got a 0x7b stop error. This is strange, because that usually coincides with an AHCI problem, but that's already turned on in the BIOS with Turbo Memory and works fine.

When I take ONE of those 2GB chips out, leaving an empty DIMM slot, it boots fine. When I use one new 2GB chip in conjunction with one of the old 1GB chips, it boots fine and Vista recognizes 3GB of RAM. But when I push it to 4GB, I get the 0x7b BSoD. I've used all combinations of new and old chips, and it appears the new chips aren't bad as far as I can tell.

Dell :: Inspiron 1720 Faulty Keyboard?

Oct 21, 2009

My lovely Dell Inspiron 1720 notebook was working quite happily but then the next time I switched it on and used a browser it started filling the URL box with letter 'd' by itself.

It then returned to work normally for a minute or so but then started filling a page with the letter 's' then 'a'. Sometimes I can get it to stop doing this by pressing another key but 'a','s' and 'd' have stopped working altogether except when they spring into life by themselves.

Virus checker says it's clean. What checks can I run to determine if it is a driver fault or keyboard hardware fault?

Dell :: Inspiron 1720 And T6400 Or T6500

I have an older Inspiron 1720 laptop with T5450, which is showing it's age. Based on the Intel Santa Rosa platform. I have maxed out RAM to 4Gb already. I have a chance to cheaply acquire Intel T6400 ($50) or T6500($60) CPU.

I know that 1720 supports 800FSB CPUs according to docs (officially T9500 is the fastest). What I was wondering if it will support this newer T6400/T6500 cpu...

Dell :: Inspiron 1720 ┐Overheating? Problem

Apr 7, 2010

Hi There!
I've got the Dell 1720 Inspiron since 2 years ago.
No problems until these 2 past weeks. I use to play the NBA 2k10 with my laptop since last december, and everything goes right, but from last 2 weeks, if I play more than 3 or 4 games (15min. per game), the laptop shuts down by itself. I've checked the CPU and GPU temperatures with Everest, and with this game running they get 70-77 degrees...It's not so hot, is it?
The fan normally gets fast in short periods of time, but it's not at highest speed during the game...
I don't know how to improve the heat contro; I've update the BIOS, Graph. drivers and so...
Any ideas?
Thanks
