Dell Inspiron 17R :: Freezes After Playing Grand Theft Auto For A While
Sep 20, 2012
I have my inspirion 17R now for 2 weeks, and when i play Grand Theft Auto San Andreas and GTAIV on it. It's gonna freeze after a while. It is not really hot. I think it's around 55~60 degrees celsius. This is without things put under the laptop. This problem is gonna piss me off for now, because also the hard drive light is on then and doesn't go out. And when i put my ear on the laptop the hard drive is not searching at all. ( it is a 1TB seagate momentus ) And i have a Core i7 and Nvidia Geforce GT630M 1GB. My dad said send it back, but i don't think that will solve the problem. Normally if i use Speedfan to put the fan on 100% the laptop will stay cool. Around 45 degrees celsius when gaming.
My laptop has been freezing for a while, and it would create a distinct buzzing noise about 10-20 minutes into a game. It originally started when my motherboard was replaced for a malfunctioning video card and then when I reported this issue a technician came and replaced the motherboard again and the heat sink + fan. The issue is still there and diagnostics comes up with no problems. The only parts that haven't been replaced in my computer are the HDD, the processor and the RAM. I don't think its a problem with the HDD as using it for anything else works, so I was wondering if it was possibly a problem with the CPU.
On friday i bought the new 7740G from Saturn. I like it really BUT it has a big bug.
When i'm playing after about 5 minutes the game freezes for 2 up to 10 seconds. I nearly tried everything but i can't get any solutions. The only thing i found out is, when im installing something and then i start playing i have the feeling the game wont freeze.
I've had my Y510p (8GB RAM, DVD Ultrabay option) for a bit more than four months now and it's been working perfectly for most of the time- however, two days ago, while playing a game the computer or the game itself froze. After trying to bring the Task Manager up/kill the game, I decided to restart it- I turned it off, but once it came back on, it had decided to start "Preparing Automatic Repair". After several times unsuccessfully "repairing" (after which again "preparing") it (it had given me an error, something with Srttrail.txt file), I decided to look up and search the Internet for people with a similar/the same problem- none of the methods worked. So, I decided it could've been from software I've installed or similar- I didn't have things THAT important (I haven't made any back-ups, nor a recovery USB), so I made an initial state lenovo recovery using the Novo button.
After several more fixing methods (unsuccessfull again, people suggested getting into the command promt, using the chkdsk command, but it was in a drive called x:, couldn't find other drives/changing from UEFI to Legacy Support in BIOS settings, I changed them, then changed them back to defaults) it started giving me the "IPv4/IPv6 Network 0 (MAC Adress) boot failed" errors and several tries more, now it constantly gives me the "Windows boot Manager boot failed" error, followed by the IPv4/IPv6 ones. after which it takes me to a blank bright-blue screen with my only cursor visible (similar to what it does i I tell it to go to Lenovo recovery menu now). Also, after trying to turn it on (in the current/last state) it gave me the 0xc000000f error. So, what's happening (the HDD is recognized in the BIOS, the laptop itslef hasn't been moved more then four or five time and used properly)? I have no instalation/repair disc with the laptop.
Grand Central Dispatch may not exactly be a household name to the average Apple user, but it's certainly a hot topic among developers, who may know it better as "libdispatch," and are no doubt thrilled that Apple has now made the whole thing open source. Among other things, that means developers are now able to take full advantage of multi-core processors in Snow Leopard, which obviously has some fairly big implications for applications as soon as those developers are able to get a handle on things.

Recently bought a dell inspiron 11 and after completing the latest windows update the autorotate function does not work at all. I am still able to rotate the screen using the cntl alt arrow keys, however I miss the convenience of the auto rotate. Also the keyboard is not disable until totally being flipped into tablet position. All drivers and components show to be working in the device manager. I have looked into all of the video settings and auto rotate is not listed as n option. Again, I noticed the problem after I did the latest windows update.
If left unattended or not used for a period of several hours my Dell Inspiron N5050 automatically hibernates. How can I disable this function so the laptop remains on until I elect to hibernate or shut down?,
Additionally I receive a pop-up message about the screen resolution of my attached Dell LED monitor as being too low and urges me to upgrade the resolution to 1080. How do I upgrade?
Recently, I have a problem with my Dell Inspiron 1420 as it's often freeze and auto shut down or restart. When it freezes, my screen will appear many small black pixels which are scattered around the desktop.
During the restart process, the system will require me to choose one of the few options available (eg. Start Windows Normally) as it stated there that the laptop was not shut down properly.
Remarks: My Dell Inspiron 1420 is equipped with NVidea 8400M GS.
I have dell Inspiron N5110. From past few days, it is auto scrolling to bottom of the page. Even if I try to scroll up its taking me down.
This problem exists even outside OS. I mean I have multiple OS installed on the system. After boot when OS selection windows opens, its always selecting last OS present in the list. System always makes some sound when this option is selected.
Regarding the keyboard. I have installed new keyboard last year under warranty.
Recently a client of mine starting experiencing WiFi connection issues, specifically the wireless will not automatically reconnect upon waking. One note: the "Wireless Network Connection" shows several routers but simply will not connect. The only solutions are either to reboot the laptop or run the connection troubleshooter in Windows. I have checked for driver updates (none available) , adjusted the power setting ("Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power" is unchecked), and verified that the AV software is not interfering - all to no avail.
I bought new Dell E4300 with 7200 rpm harddisk. Notebook is nice except one problem I have - every 2 seconds or more (this differes a lot on resources usage) movies or music stops playing for a very short time ... simply said playing isn't smooth.
I think it could be a HDD problem so I run HDTune benchmark.
Here is the result ... while I didn't make 15 posts I can't post a link (!@#$@$@#) anyway I think the result shouldn't look like this:
Almost in every low point of the graph the video or music stopped playing for a very short time (300-600ms) and that is very annoying.
I think it could be a hdd problem or maybe CPU problem that affects the hdd results as well, because the mouse pointer also stops moving for a while.
Every time when the laptop goes to sleep mode by itself and I turn it on again, the touch screen will be partly unresponsive, to be more specific, it is the upper part of the screen. The problem is only at the screen, mouse and touchpad are working fine. Now I can solve the problem by pressing power button to let it sleep and press again to turn it on, but I don't want to do this everyday.
My Inspiron 13 7000 2-in-1 laptop, after having the screen and hinges replaced due to other problems (ghost touches), now won't auto rotate the screen when in tablet mode. The keyboard is also functional when the screen is pushed back past 90 degrees, so when the keyboard is on my laptop but the screen is facing me. This doesn't happen in true tablet mode however.I've tried reinstalling all of the up-to-date drivers; chipset, BIOS, along with the ST Microelectronics 3-Axis Digital Accelerometer Driver.
There are a number of issues I can highlight that stop this from working;
1) in device manager there is no entry for ST Microelectronics 3-Axis Digital Accelerometer Driver, nor Accelerometer or anything I presume makes this function work. There is a Sensors collection, but nothing in there I think is it,. There is also no 'Unknown' device listed.
2) I should see PopUp_DM.exe in the running services and in the startup selection of programs. This is nowhere to be seen.
3) I don't appear to have a "Sensors" applet
4) when I choose 'Normal Startup' in msconfig & then reboot, it goes back to the bottom option, Selective startup. Is this something I need to do via the Dell BIOS Advanced Options?
Other than doing a full restore, which I loathe to do again as already prompted by Dell previous to this issue, what can I do? A bit worried that when Dell replaced my screen they didn't refit or include the accelerometer!
I've had my Dell Inspiron 15R SE for a year and 3 months. Unfortunately, over the last couple of months the laptop has been getting incredibly hot when playing games to point where it has cut out a couple of times.
This is playing games on the lowest spec/graphics quality and after setting high performance in the CCC to enable the graphics card. For example, my wife can play Skyrim on her laptop which is a much lower spec than my Inspiron with clear frame rates and it stays cool. Doing so on my Inspiron results in overheating quickly on the same quality settings.
I've tried using compressed air on the vents of my laptop in case it's a dust issue, but not sure if I should get into taking it to bits to check the fans more thoroughly.
However, I'm not sure if it actually is a fan issue or a hardware issue. I've run optimisers to make sure my system is running efficiently too. I currently have Windows 8.1.
I purchased my laptop a little over 2 weeks ago. After the first week I noticed that when I turn it on the dell logo will come on and then immediately go to a black screen. At that point I have to power off the back on and it boots normally. I flashed the BIOS to the A11 update but the didn't fix the issue.
My laptop has frozen while in hibernate mode on two occassions in the past two months. Though not a frequent occurance it is heart stopping when you have committed work to a customer and everything you need is on the laptop and not accessible.
The first time the machine was off. Opened the lid and pressed the power button and nothing - did not even light up the button. After no responses to any attempt to start the computer I removed the battery. Upon reinserting the battery the machine started working and everything was fine.
The second time the machine was off but left with the lid open. The power button was lit. No matter what I did there was no response - frozen again. Once again I removed the battery and upon reinserting the system again resumed working normally.
The only common thing is the laptop went into hibernate mode and would not respond to commands to wake up.
I have dell isnpiron 5110 and currently I have installed a new copy of windows 8, windows 8 is working fine but when I plu gin the charger, laptop hangs, no mouse movement, every thing freezes, ctl+alt+del does not work, then only option to shut down the computer forcefully
my bios is upto date, I have installed new bios software and also upgraded graphics driver from dell website
I have been using dell inspiron 3521 for a year now and my warranty expired recently. After two three days of warranty expiration my laptop started to overheat when i played fifa 14 and shutdown unexpectedly in the middle of the game. The game worked smoothly for hours when i used to play it before my warranty expiration date.
I have a problem with gaming on the Inspiron 1521 laptop running on vista home prem. Ok, take any game that has some 3-D effects on it, when I play the game with the battery charger plugged into my laptop, the game starts and then it just freezes.
I have to hold the power button to get out of it, but when I take the battery charger out of the laptop and start the game, it works fine but a little slow. Does anyone know what I can do to fix this problem?
I have had my 17R SE for almost half a year, I am not sure when it started but recently when I play games such as Crysis 3, the GPU temperature will exceed 90 degrees Celsius. This is not normal. I am pretty sure that the fan is not working at its maximum potential as when I tried to resolve the problem by flashing to the newest BIOS, the fan noise was significantly louder than it was when I was playing games. I have also tried the system diagnosis and it said everything is working fine.
My Dell Inspiro N5050 is having a few troubles. It was running absloulty fine yesterday and now when I power up, it sticks just before the logon page at just the black screen with the mouse. It even does the same if I try to start it in safe mode. I have run a BIOS which comes back clean. Have also tried the power off and hold the on button for 20 seconds but alas, the problem. I'm unable to do a system restore and cannot find the optipn for a factory restore.
