Dell Latitude E7440 :: How To Check The Normal Operating Temperature

Jan 18, 2014

I need to check the normal operating temperature for the Dell Latitude E7440. My fan is constantly on and the air coming out the side vent is extremely hot. I have installed a temperature app and with basic use (windows 8.1 and 2 or 3 apps open) the core 0 and core 1 of the processor are running between 85 and 90 degrees Celsius. When plugged into power, the fan is permanently on high speed. I don't know if this is normal. I dont understand why it is getting so hot, i have the i7, 8GB, 256GB SSD, so literally no moving parts to generate heat. My battery (47Wh) drains very quickly as well, 2 1/2 hours max.

Dell Inspiron 7520SE :: How To Check If Laptop Supports MSATA

Mar 9, 2013

 I have Dell inspiron 7520SE  laptop which has two configurations with mSATA connection and preinstalled mSATA card and without mSATA connection. Mine is without preinstalled mSATA card, but I found in bios

mSATA Device : [Not detected]

So does that mean my laptop supports mSATA (but it is empty) or this is just some error, and is there a way to check if my laptop has support for mSATA withou pulling it apart ?

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 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 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 Inspiron 7720 :: GPU Temperature Will Exceed 90 Degrees Celsius When Playing Games

Mar 22, 2013

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.

Dell :: I 9400 Sanity Check

May 14, 2009

I have a 2 year old inspiron 9400 with alternating vertical bars (black and green vertical dashes) on boot up screens and black screen with windows.

It has the infamous go 7900 gs video card I've read about here and everywhere. I've reloaded the latest (A03) video drivers and have the latest (A09) bios on the machine.

I have checked the card for dust bunnies (actually removed it for a good look and to check connections) and other than removing a bit of dust the heat sink fins were open.

Video side fan turns on in the lower 70's
degrees C and off in the upper 50's/C. I don't get any errors when I run the diagnostics (f12). It boots up in safe mode and VGA mode if I disable the graphics adapter while in safe mode.

That's how I'm using it now is in VGA mode. From what I read here I've joined the many many people who have had problems with the 7900 gs card in the inspiron.

Dell :: Check Your Headphones Jacks

Sep 21, 2008

I got a system exchange for my inspiron 1520 that had clicking/popping noises anytime audio was played, and my new m1530 has the exact same issue. (What I hear is a clicking/popping right before audio is played, and right after it stops for all my audio players. This also happens when it is paused.) I am wondering if this is just bad luck or if this is some mass hardware issue. So I pose the question, do you guys get clicking/popping on your 1520/1530's?

How to reproduce clicking/popping:

1) Plug in headphones

2)Turn volume down to less than 15% of the max volume (any higher and you risk ear damage)

3) Close media players, etc (not just pause, close them).

4) To try to standardize the tests, try running sounds directly from windows:
Right click the speaker icon in your tray, hit sounds. Select one of the sounds and try using the test button. The most noticeable clicking/popping are at the bottom under "windows speech recognition" as the pop at the end is about 1/2 second delayed on some of them. Device connect, device disconnect, and the logon/logoff sounds are also very noticeable.

What is odd for me is that each sound has different clicks/pops, and that they are consistent for each one. I also don't think its my headphones either, as I have three pairs (One Sennheiser, one creative, one sony) and they each produce the same clicking/popping pattern for each sound.

Dell :: Buying A Used E6400 From Craigslist, What To Check?

May 10, 2009

Some guy is selling an E6400 for $750 with 3 year warranty left. It's $300 cheaper than a simliar configuration brand new.

What things should I check for? this will be my first laptop. Of course i'll check to make sure all the parts work, test everything out.

anyway to test if there are overheating issues? build quality issues? can i see if the seller exchanged any parts?

He says he has a service # that i can check with Dell, not sure what this is though.
