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 Latitude E6510 :: Temperature Of Video Card?

Apr 9, 2011

I'm using  laptop Latitude E 6510 with video card nVidida NVS 3100m. I have external monitor - HP LP2465, which I use when I'm working home.

Working of office jobs, I saw, that laptop become warm. I cheked the temperatures (Everest Ultimate, vers.4.50) and I saw, that video card is relatively worm - after several minutes temperatures of video card  is about 130 F and soon reach up to 140-150 F. Then temperature stay in this  limits.

I would like to know if such temperatures are normal. I bought cooling laptop pad, but it  doesn't make real difference.

Dell :: 1330 Temperature - Too Hot And Should I Stop Playing To Risk Damaging The Video Card

Oct 16, 2008

I recently got my heatsink + motherboard replaced and noticed drastic improvements with my temperatures. My GPU is now idling at 60-65 C and when I am playing a game (Warhammer Online or Lord of the rings online) it is at 95-100 C.

Is that too hot and should I stop playing to risk damaging the video card?

Or is it fine? I can hear the fan going and I feel the hot air being blown out of the vent and cold air being sucked into the fan.

Dell :: Inspiron 1440 Video Card

Dec 20, 2009

I've just received a 1440 as a system exchange. Mine has the Intel graphics. Is it safe to assume that the Intel graphics are integrated into the MOBO? The 1440 is apparently available with an ATI 512MB card.

I'm guessing there is no chance I could pick one up and stick it in this thing?

It still shocks me that I have the ability to throw 8gigs in a laptop. This is a replacement for an E1405 and my I9300 is still my go-to laptop.

Dell :: New Video Card On A Inspiron 1525?

Apr 24, 2009

I was wondering if there is any way to switch or add a graphic card on this laptop. It's probably built in the motherboard so the switch might be impossible. But someone told me maybe there is an empty slot.

Do you guys know??

Stupid thing, I was told the graphic card in there supports OpenGL. The thing is, it supports it "partially".

Dell :: Inspiron 9400 Video Card Replacement

Sep 8, 2009

I am a long time Dell Inspiron 9400 notebook user. I bought this notebook on February of 2006. So, the notebook is now about 7 months out of its 3 year NBD warranty, which sucks massively as the nVidia GeForce Go 7800 video card has developed some display glitches.

I am having random BSODs with error code: BAD_POOL_CALLER - Attempt to reset the display driver and recover from a timeout failed. After restarting the machine, I can see lots of display glitches both on my external 27" Dell monitor and the notebook screen.

I have run extensive diagnostics - no issues were picked up with CPU, RAM or HDD.

Mind you, the motherboard on this notebook was completely replaced last year due to faulty USB ports.


1. What are the chances of paying Dell to extend the warranty? I still would not want to completely ditch this notebook for another year or so.

2. I obviously have to pay for a video card replacement out of my own pocket. What are my best options? Just find a suitable video card on eBay - is that it?

3. Considering I no longer use this machine for gaming, mainly for web browsing, and .NET application development & testing, what is the cheapest video card that will do the job?

Dell :: Inspiron 8200 Video Card Replacement

Aug 9, 2009

I'm working on a laptop of someone I know, it's a Dell Inspiron 8200.The video card seems to be going, because I have lines running down the display. I get them when the computer is hooked up to an external monitor too.

I've already taken it apart to check out the card, but because I didn't have a replacement I had to put it back together. I'm wondering where I could get a replacement card for it.

I was gifted this Inspiron for my birthday to be a gaming laptop, unfortunatly when I checked what video graphics card I had it was a pretty crummy Intel(R) HD Graphics Family card. This prevents me from playing many games I would like to play on my laptop. My question is: Is there a way to upgrade the graphics card or replace the graphics card.

Dell :: Inspiron 1720: Want To Upgrade Video Card (intel 965)

Jan 7, 2010

i would like to upgrade my video card, if it is possible and if it is worth it. my 1720 has the mobile intel 965 express chipset family. ive seen sigs (dr650se and someformofhuman) stating that they have the nvidia 8600m gt and was wondering if this is compatible with my 1720.

also i found out through this forum that i can upgrade my cpu (which is the measly t5450 1.66 ghz) to the beastly t9300, and add a 2nd hard drive (which is my first step in upgrading this dell because i only have a 160 gb drive).

i was looking for a new laptop until i came across this forum and found out the possibilities of my dell. i decided to stick with this and just upgrade it! thanks for the insight, and thanks in advance for all the help that i will be asking for!

Dell Inspiron N5110 :: Can't Detect Nvidia Gt 525m Video Card Anymore

Nov 10, 2012

I've recently accidentally dropped my n5110 ci5 laptop. It was a hard crash that the screen cracked. Later i had the screen replaced and checked that all hardware is working properly. Everything was fine except my laptop can no longer detect my NVIDIA Gt525m Graphic Card. I really need it for my advanced modeling and rendering purposes. What i know is that display is working and it's definitely using Intel HD Graphics 3000. I tried re-installing video drivers but the setup won't continue saying that it can't detect any compatible hardware.

Dell Inspiron 15R 5521:: AMD Graphic Card - Screen Suddenly Went Black While Watching Video

Feb 3, 2013

My  Inspiron 15R 5521 encountered a problem soon after a bought.

The spec of my laptop is:

- intel i7 dual core 3537U-2Ghz

- screen resolution 1920x1080

The problem is:

The screen suddenly went black when I was watching tutorial about using Windows 8 from the Start Screen, which immediately closed the video, and a few seconds later the start screen appear. When the start screen appear, the size of the tiles and the fonts became smaller then before the black out happened. Then a warning box appear saying "No AMD graphic driver is installed, or the AMD driver is not functioning properly. Please install the AMD driver appropriate for your AMD hardware".

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 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 N7110 :: Fan Will Increase Speed According To Increased Temperature Of CPU

Jan 7, 2015

I have a pretty good amount of knowledge behind computer software, and hardware operations. I am aware of the fact that the fan will increase speed according to increased temperature of CPU, and other components. However, is the fan supposed to periodically, turn on and off, each occurrence running at full speed for 10-20 seconds, then shut off again? How about the same question, when the laptop is physically(meaning you can feel it) hot? I don't think that this is a hardware issue. I've recently had a hard drive fail on me, and had another hard drive(same exact model hard drive) installed, and Windows 8 reinstalled. I think somewhere along the lines of the OS reinstallation process, some drivers were probably missed and this might be causing the issue. On the other hand, the fan in this laptop is the same one from the factory, which makes it 4 years old. What is the lifetime on the fans in the Inspiron N7110?

Dell :: XPS Video Card Death

May 18, 2009

took my 1730 apart to blow out the dust and quiet a noisy vid card fan. Upon re-assembly, I used a long screw instead of a short when securing the monitor back to the body of the laptop.

That screw pierced a resistor and killed my video card... POOR design Dell + idiot move me= dead 1730. The short of it is, I need someone who has had their 1730 apart to tell me the value of the resistor R12, which is under the rubber flap below the left lid support screw.

(UPDATE) I purchased a new card..I know, I know, but I had to as I had projects that I needed access too. I would still like to fix this card though.

The R12 resistor is a micro resistor with "2A2" printed on top of it.. Anyone have any idea where I can get one of these? I thought at first it was 202 but under the magnifying glass I am pretty sure its "2A2".

Dell :: XPS M1730 Video Card

Mar 22, 2009

Both m8800gtx have an error code 43 in hardware device manager (vista32).
Well, here is what is going on. I have an m1730 that has been working A1 since I got until yesterday when I installed CoD:WaW.

It might be just a coincidence though because the game was playing good for a while until I got kicked out of the game and when I tried to launch the game again it said I had a DirectX corruption. So I took a look at directx diag and saw no problem, except for video card info showed nothing!

This is where I decided to look in hardware manager and saw the dreaded exclamation point (error 43) for both my cards.
I did a full video driver uninstall, then did a driversweeper and took out all nvidia stuff and tried to install my drivers again and still get the same error!

Are my video cards messed up? I will be attempting a clean install on another spare drive today to see if it really a driver/software conflict.

Dell :: Help With Video Card Problem

Aug 30, 2009

My wife and I have a couple of Latitude 600m's both seemingly with Radion 9000 video cards.

Her HD has been on the fritz, and my mother board seems to have been on the fritz recently (not powering on), and seems to have finally died, so I put my HD in her machine and everything - except - the video seems to be working properly.

Basically the only two display options I have under the video properties are 1024x768 and 800x600... whereas in the HD's native machine, I can go considerably wider.

Dell :: E1705 Video Card

May 4, 2009

about a year ago my e1705's video card memory had a error and I had colored stripes on the screen. I researched a little and found that I could upgrade my card to a xps 512mb card and so I did. Now a few days ago my screen went black and I freaked out thinking my video card died but a few seconds later everything was fine again. Today, the same thing happened although this time the black screen turned to a blue error screen saying "***Hardware Malfunction Call your hardware vendor for support NMI: Parity check/ memory parity error ***The system has haulted***" I ran the diagnostic and the graphics card memory is showing errors. I checked ebay and another card is $300. What options do I have? I like my laptop but I'm kind of tired of this problem especially if I buy another card and expect it to happen again.
